A beautiful ocean, beach front location where you can forget all your stresses and be at peace. This two bedroom, one full and half bath, ground floor, corner unit condominium is in a delightful location. 11 feet from the ocean. Eight paces to the ocean steps & you are on the beach or taking a dip in very swimmable water! You can sit out on your large, semi private travertine tiled lanai sipping your morning coffee or enjoying a romantic dinner with the surf as your back ground music.
This quiet location is ideal for those who want to get away from it all. At the same time, it is wonderful for families that want a more natural environment that is less commercial, but has a convenient location.
The two reefs, off shore, are a great snorkeling location & at low tide a shallow lagoon forms, great for younger children(see photo) who love to find crabs, small trapped fish and have fun in the shallow water.
The condominium was completely remodeled in November and December of 2010. A developer/contractor and design team have brought about a design concept that is modern, fresh and has a quiet beauty that reflects the environment. Elegant materials such as travertine, sea glass mosaics, granite, bamboo, brushed steel/nickel and ceramics and a punctuation of rattan and island florals that come together to achieve a wonderful ambience.
Lanai: Travertine tiled, tropical vegetation on both sides ocean all across the front. Sunsetter blinds can be brought down to offer late afternoon shade.
The living room: Wall to wall patio slider and louvre windows so that you are never without your ocean view or sounds of the surf or watching the sun set. Furnished with a blend of tropical influences and modern clean lines it is the perfect retreat. The wall mounted flat screen T.V. plays your DVD's & CD'S. I Pod player. Free long distance to the main land & Canada. Hi speed internet available. A.C if desired.
There is a dining area as well as a casual bistro set, situated off from the kitchen. The kitchen granite counter also offers more seating.
The kitchen: Beautiful custom bamboo cabinetry, brushed metals and ocean inspired granite. New stainless appliances, all the utensils, cook ware and dishes you would ever need to make the great ocean front lanai into your private dining room at sun set. Coffee maker, blender, toaster and microwave, George Forman grill and seasonings, all there to help. There are also BBQ's available on the grounds.
The bedrooms: A queen with its dark rattan, ceiling fan and quiet soothing green tones. Vanity area, good closet space & plenty of drawers. The twin with its fun bamboo, ceiling fan, turquoise and ivory accents(beds are side by side, but can easily be pushed together). In case you have two additional in your party, there are two hotel style fold away beds. Both bedrooms have top down bottom up blinds and louvre windows.
Bathrooms: The spa influenced full bathroom with it's walk in shower (with granite seat & grab bars for anyone needing extra help) is accented in travertine, sea glass and granite. Vanity drawers & med cabinet to store all your items away. A hair dryer is also included. Half bath adds extra convenience.
Beach towels/chairs also available for your convenience. The grounds are lush, established and wonderfully tropical. There is a pool with ice and vending machines, handy for the kids. The open air laundry room operates until late evening. Iron & ironing board supplied.
Location, location, location!! 5 minutes from Historic Lahaina and The Cannery Mall and wonderful downtown restaurants. Minutes drive from beautiful Kapalua. Stores, including: a super market in walking(1/10 ml) distance, a farmers market. Other super markets and shopping centers all within a 5-10 minute drive. Casual restaurants are close by too. An 8 minute walk to the right of the complex takes you to 'The Beach Walk'. This is a public walk way that goes along the dunes and through the large resorts on Ka'anapali beach all the way to Black Rock. On the other side of Black Rock you will find more golden beach with activities available.
Between December and April the hump backed whales come through on their way to the Pailolo channel. Whales can be seen from the lanai and it has been reported that calves have been born! Whale watching and boating excursions leave from Lahaina. The double band of reef outside your lanai is habitat to turtles and marine life including rays which glide past. The reef also breaks up the surf so you can enjoy quieter water for swimming, snorkeling & paddle boarding beyond the reef. About two hundred feet up from the condo is a wider sandy beach with play structures(great for youngsters).
We hope you will spend time with us and enjoy your little piece of paradise.

About Doug Wallway
We are a developer/contractor, interior design team. We live in the Truckee, Tahoe area of California. We have built/remodeled high end homes and many condos, including beautiful lake front properties. Our passion is designing and building & we love doing it in beautiful places. We feel very blessed and fortunate to have this opportunity!
Doug Wallway purchased this condo in 2010
Why Doug Wallway chose Honokowai
We were visiting the beautiful island, Maui for a wedding and rented at The Maui Sands. We really enjoyed the location and the ambience of the Maui Sands resort. While there, we discovered there was a unit for sale & bought it! It is an older two story complex that is right on the water. It is quiet & has a more local feel than the high rises. We really enjoy the uncommercial & quiet beauty of this location.
What makes this condo unique
We love the ocean & its sound! We are only 11 feet from the surf and it is what we have always wanted. It is an older Maui style building with charm and since we don't go to the ocean to hear hotel/pool noise and looking at other guests' balconies this place is perfect. Seeing the wild life in it's natural habitat is wonderful too. Location is central and close enough to the shops & restaurants for when you need them. The setting is so beautiful you will want to stay home for dinner and the sun sets are amazing!
