Ocean View, Low Density, One Bed Condo, Perched Over The Ocean!
If the goal is to relax and enjoy the view, you won't have to go more than a few short steps!! This is a spectacular view! You will not be disappointed! This is a wrap-around corner lanai on the second floor of a two story building, facing the ocean.
Maui Sands is located in the heart of the Honokowai neighborhood. There are grocery, take out, and eat in restaurants within close walking distance. To the north and the south are lovely sandy beaches, but the prize is the set of 3 reefs that protect the ocean swimmer from the heavy surf, and make for great snorkeling and swimming!
Our kitchen is perfectly equipped for eating snacks in, or creating a gourmet meal from the fresh local produce at The Farmers Market right across the street!
This home is equipped with several amenities to provide you with a wonderful vacation from start to finish!
*Right down the stairs from the unit is a shared BBQ. This is located just off the observation deck perched over the sea-wall. Views Everywhere!
*We have flat screen TV's in both the living area and the bedroom.
*There is both a stereo, and DVD player for your use.
*We have a well maintained and new AC, but this unit captures the fresh ocean breezes like no other! You will love falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves! We keep portable fans in addition to the ceiling fans for your comfort as well.
*We provide free wifi and a free reserved parking space close to the unit.
*The bedroom has a new and comfortable California King bed!
*Beach chairs, beach towels and coolers are provided as well as boogie boards and some snorkel gear (although you may want to rent to get the best fit).

Why Heather Buono chose Honokowai
Nasrin and Jim purchased this unit because of the spectacular view on the water! They knew this was a special spot from the moment they first saw it!
What makes this Condo unique
This is a rare one bedroom unit with a full ocean view in a low density property. The building is literally 15' from the shoreline! The volcanic reef fronting the shoreline runs parallel to the shore. There are 2 lava reef ridges that serve to protect the swimmer/snorkeler during low to mid tide. The max depth between the 1st and second reef is about 9 ft, and in the afternoon fairly warm and very comfortable. We see turtles, spinner dolphins and eagle rays, as well as countless other marine animals along this shoreline!

Condo is very good--location is great-like 30 steps from the water & overlooks water!! Well furnished & supplied--easy access to stores/eateries/transportation--2nd stay in #711 and have a 3rd reservation made for next whale season !! Was very grey & windy all 10 days but that is not a negative regarding the condo--
I'm very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! I wish it had been a less stormy week for you! We absolutely look forward to hosting you again!
Thank you so much for taking good care of the space.
Private ocean views and quiet relaxation
This unit is perfect - clean and modern with two walls of windows in the living room offering a stunning panorama of ocean views and access to the bigger than usual L-shaped lanai. Cross breezes from those windows keep it cool and comfortable, as well, and even the bedroom faces the ocean, so you hear nothing but the waves and not traffic or roosters in the hills crowing at dawn. The location is close to everything you need - grocery shopping, the fish and farmers' markets, restaurants and more, all with a neighbourhood feel, rather than an isolated resort or hotel complex. This was my second stay, and I'm already planning the next one.
I'm so happy to have you back again! Thank you for taking such good care of the property. It is a pretty special spot. Looking forward to having you again!
Slice of Paradise!
Couldn't have chosen a better place to enjoy our Maui vacation! Million dollar view at bargain price.
Beautiful sunrises and sunsets from our lanai made each day magical. Adding to that was the excellent snorkeling just steps away! Would definitely stay here again!
I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking such great care of the space, I do hope you book again!

Maui Sands is the place to stay. This was our first vacation to Maui - it will certainly not be our last. After a long day of sightseeing, it was great to pick up some dinner and acai bowl from the local grocery store, sit on the lanai and enjoy the spectacular sunset. The visits from the green and hawksbill sea turtles were amazing. We were able to swim with them 25 feet from the lanai. The walks along the sand were absolutely serene. This condo had all the amenities that we could have asked for. Thank you Heather for an amazing holiday.
Beautiful lanai right on the water.
Generally good. Condo needs to be upgraded and painted but it is comfortable and has a great location.
This is a great location, and plans are already underway for some upgrades. We appreciate your detailed feedback, and enjoyed meeting and hosting you.
Honokawai is a unique Maui neighborhood. It's the kind of community where people know each other and say "Aloha" walking down the street. There are grocers, eateries of all types and local shops. Down the road is our favorite beach walk - walking south (go right) from Maui Sands is Honua Kai Beach, one of the top rated beaches in the world from Travel and Leisure Magazine.
