Honokowai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Oversized modern 2 Bed, 1 Bath only 10 feet from the ocean

Maui Sands unit 5C. The photos represent the latest furniture and amenities in the unit. Folks, you can’t get any closer to the ocean than this 2 bed 1 bath unit. 10 feet to the ocean. Plus, since it a ground floor unit, it’s like you have a extended 10 foot long semi private grass area extending from your lanai to the ocean. Feel free to drag our lanai furniture directly on the grass. You'll be amazing at the 180 degree views of the shoreline, the sunsets every night and a double island view of Lanai and Molokai. The owners used to actually fish right off their lanai and catch reef fish. You can actually watch the whales jumping and the mothers nursing their calves as well as turtles eating off the reef from inside your unit or on the lanai!

This 2 bedroom, 1 bath modern unit has a large dining room table and a very open floor plan to accommodate up to 6 guests comfortably. Our pull out sofa sleeper sleeps two and in our bedrooms we have a king size bed and a couple twins in our second bedroom. Our kitchen is very spacious with granite counter tops and the unit has all the small appliances you’ll find at your home.

One of the best features of our condo is that our parking spot is right in front of our unit (50 feet). This makes it super convenient when hauling beach gear from your unit to the car and back.

Maui Sands Resort Location:

On the ocean in west Maui, Lahaina side of the island

Very end of North Kaanapali Beach (Honokowai area)

Between the Papakea and Paki Maui Resorts

3559 Lower Honoapiilani Road

2 minutes drive to Kaanapali, 7 minutes to Lahaina

Next door to the Honokowai beach park

Best property feature...

Walking on the beach from our property down to Kaanapali.

Maui Sands Resort is actually the very last unit that you can walk on the beach for miles all the way down to Black Rock in Kaanapali. “Walk on the beach” being the key words! Other properties might boast they have a private beach or a little cove or something but you won’t be able to take a long sunset or morning strolls more than 100 yards in either direction on the beach. It would just be too dangerous to walk on the lava rocks and cliffs from one cove to the next.

Kaanapali Beach was voted nicest beach in the US and Black Rock is one of the top three “must snorkel” places to on Maui! I personally have seen eagle rays, turtles, Hawaiian monk seals and dolphins right in front of our property. Other properties north of Maui Sands you have to actually walk on the road onto our property then walk on the beach to Kaanapali. Were talking about a 2–3 mile stretch of beach and your at one end.

Maui Sands Property Highlights:

Direct on the ocean facing the islands of Lanai and Molokai

1 assigned parking spot. NO resort or parking FEES

Four acres of impeccably maintained grounds

Large grass areas with tropical foliage and lush tropical gardens

Unheated freshwater pool (90% of pools in Hawaii are unheated)

2 BBQs and large laundry facility

Sunset views directly over the ocean. (See the green flash!)

Quiet and peaceful old Hawaiian property

Lots of open space and older tropical trees

No need to drive anywhere to snorkel swim!

2 tropical reefs right out front of property

Surf, kayak, snorkel and swim right at Maui Sands

The reefs provide a great baby beach for small kids at low tide

Walk from our property on the beach for miles towards Kaanapali

Walking distance to world class restaurants (Dukes, Roy’s, Hula Grill)

2 BBQ grills, large pool, soda machines, restrooms

Turtles eat every morning right off our reefs!

Our Beach: It moves!

Since were at the very end of a 3 mile long stretch of beach, our shoreline changes drastically depending on currents and storm systems far away. If you're staying right in the middle of middle of the 3 mile stretch of sandy beach, you're probably NOT going to notice the movement and you'll have a sandy beach all year around. But at the very end of any beach, you’ll notice the changes. By the way, right in the middle of Kaanapali Beach is Kaanapali Resort, which is a very expensive area of the island and that’s where you’ll find the Hyatt, Sheraton and Westin Resorts.

Typically during the summer months the ocean currents move the sand north towards our property and our beach grows. This is due to the increased tropical activity south of the islands. During the winter months the Alaskan storm systems push the current and the sand south towards Kaanapali and our beach comes and goes. But, a sandy beach to plant your towel down on is never more than say the property next door. Don’t’ bother asking if it’s sandy when you plan on coming because it can change drastically just overnight! It all depends on the currents and storm systems around the islands and sometimes we get effects from storm systems or hurricanes as far away as Australia and Fiji!

About Kory Skolnick

please enjoy our vacation rental. We tried to make it like home!

Kory Skolnick purchased this condo in 2006

Why Kory Skolnick chose Honokowai

We recently decided to rent out our 'home' to vacation renters so that we could spend more time with our grand children on the mainland. We lived in it for 2 years before recently deciding to rent it out in the vacation rental market. The difference between our condo and other vacation rentals is that ours was our 'home' and it will feel like home to you! We only rent it out on a limited basis so please check the online calendar for rental opportunities!

What makes this condo unique

You can walk all the way to Kaanapali Beach and Black Rock ON THE BEACH! Take romantic hour long strolls during sunset and at keep your eye out for the florescent animals in the sand! Every condo's north of our property you have to walk on the street first then walk thru our complex to go to the beach and walk to Kaanapali.

Directly across the street you'll find a scuba and snorkel shop for all your beach rentals but, don’t forget, this unit has boogie boards, towels, beach bags and umbrellas! Also located across the street you’ll find the 'Fish Market', Okazua Deli and Pizza Hut.

100 yards south you’ll find an 'ABC' (Convenient) store for any last minute necessities.

Just past the ABC store you’ll find a outdoor shopping mall which has a grocery store, a Maui Dive Shop, a local(s) bar and a Mexican and Italian restaurant. You’ll also find a Jazz bar called Java Jazz. It’s a combo Jazz/Wine Bar, Coffee Shop, Fine Dining Restaurant which features wonderful live jazz music nightly.

Nice spot for a vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week on the island of Maui. This condo was a nice place to rest in between all of the activities that we did. It is very clean and well stocked. (although there weren't enough beach towels for the 6 of us)

My only complaint would be that the management wasn't readily available to help with any issues that we had.

#1. There is supposed to be 1 key inside and 1 key in the lock box. We did not have a key inside. I notified them immediately upon our arrival and they never came to fix the problem. We had to use the lock box for our entire stay (pain in the butt!).

#2. We had specifically rented this unit because it was listed as having a queen bedroom in the 2nd room. Upon our arrival we discovered that the 2nd room was 2 twins. That didn't sit well with my daughter and her fiance. I texted the management to ask if it could be fixed and they never responded. Now, of course I realize that maybe they didn't receive the text, but they had responded to me about our first issue....but they never fixed the problems.

All of that being's still a nice place and I would be willing to stay there again. But the other couple with us had to sleep on the couch!

Time for new management???

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our Maui Sands unit 5C and would love to have you back. Sorry we didn't get your test messages. We added an additional number to our instructions in case guests messages have problems. Additional key has been replaced and in the unit's closet, there was, and still is, a special pad with sheets that you can use to place in between the twin beds after putting them together. This converts the twins into a large California king size bed. Guests can choose to leave as twins separate for children or put them together for couples.

my kids do not want to leave!

The first day we arrived here in Maui, my daughter stood in front of the sea wall against back drop of ocean and rainbow right outside of the balcony, and she was so happy. We love the great location, walking distance to everything. We did not figure out that you can swim in front of the ocean until 2 days before we leave!! The trick is to get into water from the right side of the condos via stairs. Go into between two reefs. Then swim in between reefs. I swam all the way to the park and swam back in front of the unit. I do not have to drive to anywhere. I wish I knew this earlier!!! On the last day, we had to leave a bit late and the manager was able to let us stay a couple of hours later so my kids can rest up for late night flight!!

Everything We Needed

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with a group of adults and enjoyed the condo. Kitchen is well equipped and modern, appliances are newer. The beds were nice and the shower was good. We appreciated the cooler, and used it for one of our day trips. It's quiet, parking is included in the price (no parking fee!) and I thought the price was excellent.

This location may not appeal to all, because even though you are on the ocean, it's not the "sand forever" beach like one would get at a more resort-oriented property. Having said that, we did go swimming, several times, right in front of the condo and it was great, you just need to navigate around some short reef walls that are on the floor of the ocean. We had some surprising success snorkeling right out front, too, because of those reefs.

The whale watching was excellent here (March) and we saw sea turtles, crab and various other creatures right out front.

Location-wise, I liked that it was away from some of the more tourist populated places, even though I was a tourist, too! :-) I liked being able to come back to someplace quiet. There is plenty shopping (food, souvenir, coffee, snorkel rental, etc) all within a short walk, and if you need that "miles of sand" experience, just turn right or left out of the parking lot and you're there in five minutes.

You may wish to rent a car if you use this location, as we did, but you won't use a lot of gas--we did a lot of activities elsewhere and only filled up one time (besides when we returned the car). If you just want some quiet time on the ocean or are going to utilize one of the many bus tours on the island, you won't need a car.

I thought the management was easy to deal with but you should be aware that there is basically nobody at the site if things come up. You're provided with contact info--we didn't need to use it.

Condo worked great for us and I would recommend it to people who are open to getting out and experiencing Maui on their own. If you're the room service type, you may want to stick to a resort.

Best girls' trip ever

  • 5 of 5

Came to Hawaii for the first time with 5 lady friends. This place was perfect! You can hear the ocean as you sleep. Amazing views from inside and out. Kitchen is great for preparing your own meals or numerous stores, restaurants or a farmer's market in walking distance. Everyone surrounding the complex and area extremely friendly. Can't wait to come back and bring my family!

Everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during the month of May and everything that is said by the owner in his description is absolutely true. The ocean is right there in front of you with a wonderful view of Molokai and Lanai, fantastic sunsets, wonderful beach in front which was perfect for snorkelling as long as we timed our activities to the tides (great for beginners or expert snorkelling and not far from Honolua where the best snorkelling in Maui is). We saw turtles (many on the beach and in front of "our" beach), whales, monk seal, eels, many coloured fish, lobster, octopus, etc. The pool was wonderful and our granddaughter had the time of her life on the beach and in the pool where she learned to swim. The grounds were large and well kept and my granddaughter and I picked wonderfully fragrant plumerias off the ground every night for the table. The location was perfect with tiny shops, restaurants and a large grocery store near by to pick up what we needed and with a vehicle rental we were able to see Halekala Crater, South Maui, Road to Hana, and north Maui over to the Olivine Pools. My husband & I loved this condo, our 2 sons, our daughter-in-law and our granddaughter loved this place which made it especially hard to leave after having spent a month becoming a part of the community of Honokowai. We would highly recommend this condo and would definitely go back... we hope in the next couple of years. Thanks so much, I miss Hawaii!

Wonderful Stay in Maui (Maui Sands , Unit 5C)

  • 5 of 5

My wife, my 2 year old and I stayed at this condo for 5 days. We had a wonderful time. The unit is perfectly placed with a great view of the ocean and the neighboring island. The parking is a breeze as it is right in front of the unit. This was helpful when carrying groceries, SCUBA gear or a sleeping 2-year old. The unit was clean and open. The unit only has A/C in the main room, along with a ceiling fan in the main room, both bedrooms and the bath. Being that the wind blew most of the days, this was not a big deal. When the wind stopped blowing, it did get hot. While they did supply a few portable fans, A/C in the bedrooms would be a nice feature, but not a show stopper.

The Lanai was nice and rather large. There was more than enough space for 6 people to eat breakfast while looking at the ocean and islands. The pool was nice and quiet and the few local owners that did use it when we were there were all nice. The ocean "beach" is a short walk away, but the "tide pools" and VERY shallow water were right off the property during low tide. My 2-year old had an absolute blast in the shallow area (about knee to waist high on him). Many small fish too!!

The condo was close to area shopping and other attractions. Within walking distance of other eateries and shopping.

All in all, this place ROCKS! We would stay there again.

Nearest Airport
1 Miles
Kapalua Airport

No need to go anywhere! From your unit you can watch turtles every morning, see whales sitting on your couch or watch your guest snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, fishing paddle boarding right in front of your unit. Plus, the bushes are gone on the seawall now and your view is 100% better! Sand comes and goes with the surf and season. Summer times we have a sandy beach in front of your unit, during the winter the waves come from Alaska which moves the sand south of our complex. But, if you want sand in the winter, just walk 100 feet down the beach! The sand moves and we cannot predict if their will be a sandy beach during your stay!
