About Linda & Francesco Funiciello
I was born on the beautiful island of Ischia, near Capri, Italy in the Mediterranean. I have been attracted to Maui for its beauty, ocean and lush landscaping. I felt that this is my other paradise on earth after my island Ischia, Italy. The walking distance to the village reminds me of the european flair with its shops and restaurants.
Linda & Francesco Funiciello purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Linda & Francesco Funiciello chose Lahaina
This great remodeled unit is located only 10 feet away from the ocean. The ocean is your backyard and the magnificent daily views compliment your relaxing days in the warm 80 degree Maui ocean water. A fully stacked kitchen for you to use. Our green landscaped grounds are the typical Lush Hawaii. All shops & markets are in walking distance to the village, just outside the property across the street. FREE parking 12 feet way from front door. We also provide snorkeling gear, beach chairs, beach towels, new air conditioning, ground floor location with no steps, children friendly. One cannot get any closer to the ocean, imagine only 10 feet away from you. Extremely quiet and peaceful. The ocean sound will be music to anyone ears. A temporary protective very low bamboo fence installed due to some erosion caused by high surf. Access to the ocean is on the very right of the property with a few steps for access to the swimming and great snorkeling reefs right there.

Beautiful vista...but could use a facelift.
The view from the condo is breathtaking. The condo itself could use bit of a facelift. Drawers were broken, patio door very hard to open, and cleaners could have done a better job. And the snorkelling gear was "ok". Could have been better organized and cleaned up a bit. Covered in sand and randomly tossed into the basket. An inexpensive knife sharpener would help make your knives razor sharp (I am a chef, and am picky about my cooking utensils!). All said, we would come back, but a trip to the hardware store would serve you well. Mahalo.
Great location, great place!
Myself and four friends stayed here when visiting Maui for the first time. The apartment/condo was clean and had all modern amenities (A/C!). Francesco always answered my call or text when I had questions about our booking/the rental. There was plenty of seating indoors and out for the five of us, and the location was conveniently close to a grocery store and food truck lot. It is also very close to downtown Lahaina, which made catching ubers cheap and fast. The real gem of the property is that there is PHENOMINAL snorkeling right outside the back patio. Tons of fish, just as diverse as the Molokini crater! Wish we had discovered that sooner! The rental has snorkeling equipment and beach chairs, which were so handy to borrow. The only negative to the rental is that there is now a back yard bamboo fence up, which impedes the view as seen in the pictures. The ocean and patio are still there to enjoy, but the fence is 3-4' tall, so you can't see the ocean from the lean-back beach chairs.
Absolutely lovely holiday
Kitchen stocked, comfy bed, excellent communication, toys, pack and play, strap on high chair, extra towels, ample storage, laundry room nearby, hear the waves crashing, very helpful and informative check in information, gardens very beautiful, convenient location, pool towels provided, parking spot in front of condo, pictures match what it’s like inside, good WiFi, ac in living room works great, ceiling fans in every room, turtles swim out front, pool quiet, extra towels and sheets if needed
3 foot wall outside door it does block the view when lounging, can’t swim in front unless low tide with little kids but as an adult it’d be great to swim out there, sound insulation to the upstairs not great, deck over water closed, storage sheds on the property could use some maintenance these are more about the property it this condo as you can tell
Good to know
Have: crock pot, rice cooker, blender, toaster, tons of pots and pans, tons of flatware and serve ware, strap on booster, pack in play, box of toys, free standing fans, beach toys, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, some spices, dish soap, hand soap, laundry is $1.75 for light soil and $2.00 for medium, dryer is $1.25 a load, ice machine at pool
Overall a wonderful experience they were even able to accommodate our check out request. We would not hesitate to book again and would highly recommend anyone to book here. Just do it now, look no further!;)
the appartement is very nice, francesco very friendly, good sunset view
We really enjoyed our stay at Maui Sands. The owner was astonishingly responsive and helpful. The unit has a remarkable view, with turtles and all! There are good cheap eats, a grocery store and a convenience store within a few minutes walk. Lahaina Town is just down the road.
Do bring quarters. The washers and dryers are in the common area and are pay per use.
In a very very short walking distance from the village. There is an open air farmers market several times during the week. You can buy local fresh organic fruits and vegetables and much more. Also there is a park just steps away from the condo with access to the beach and the calm ocean. Great for children to play in the shallow waters protected by the reefs.
