Aloha!

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.

Mahalo!

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

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.

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!

Exceeded Our Expectations

We cannot say enough about the view. Waking every morning to an unobstructed lapis and turquoise colored sea followed by gorgeous sunsets every evening enhanced the magic. Moreover, it was fabulous to watch the paddlers zip by every morning and evening....a real treat.

I admit I was a bit concerned about the rocky beach. However, we took a quick trip to the store and bought $10 water shoes....and that took care of our trepidation. Although we took a day trip out to Lanai for snorkeling....we all agreed that the snorkeling in front of the condo was just as good. There is a 5 foot green sea turtle that inhabits the waters just beyond the second break and we "adopted" her....it was a real highlight of the trip to swim with her (at a respectful distance) day after day. Another important point about the water in front of the condo.....it is deceptively shallow. So, even not-so-strong swimmers can stand in the sand .... even if they venture out 50 yards.

Although we opted to eat lunch and dinner out, the kitchen was well stocked for those who chose to cook. Another highlight of the condo is its location. We zipped into Lahaina and Whalers Village for meals, but also went to the up country for horseback riding and to visit the lilac farm - both a change of pace and worthwhile diversions from snorkeling. Also, there are several food stores close by as well as an ABC store.....We failed to bring an underwater camera and were able to buy one just minutes from the condo.

The property was amazingly quiet. Usually, the only sound we heard was the crashing of the waves. Surprisingly, we never went into the pool; there was just no need. We were pleased with how well stocked the condo was with beach towels, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and paddle boards. (We failed to notice the snorkeling gear and rented some for the week......so, be sure to check out the supplies before investing in anything.)

My only regret is that we booked our stay for one week instead of two. I have no hesitation highly recommending this property.

Condo was clean and had everything we needed. Beautiful view, very close to the water. there is no sandy beach to lie on, but it's worth it being so close to the water. There are many beaches close by. There were 6 of us, so we used the extra cots and they were very comfortable. Everything is close by, even some places in walking distance, including a gas station. The lahaina center shopping and restaurants were about 10-15 minutes down the road. Owner is easy to get ahold of and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

We had an awesome stay on Maui. The condo was as great as advertised and we throughly enjoyed our stay. Shopping and dining were convenient when needed. The whale watching from the lanai was great...!!! Sunsets were beautiful and the stars were brilliant at night. Great location to access surfing, snorkeling, beaches, hiking and exploring the island.

Dream Vacation Location

  • Submitted: Mar 30, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
We first chose to stay at Doug and Gay's condo in April of 2012. Everything about our stay was first rate and that was reflected in the review we gave in June 2012. We were so impressed we came back again, this time for even longer, in April of 2013. While we didn't think we could be, we were even more impressed. The amenities of the condo, coupled with its perfect location, can't be beat. Unfortunately for us, what we hoped to be our little secret seems to have been discovered by others. We are so disappointed at not being able to rebook at our chosen spot that we decided to forego going to Maui at all this year. As we said in our 2012 review, we will come back to Maui, but where we said this condo would be our first choice we now say its our only choice.

Owner's Response: Hey Doug, thanks for the loyalty and sorry you did not get booked in time this year. January through April does book up pretty early and fast. Hope we can hook up out there at the same time again like we did 2 years ago.

Fantastic family holiday

My family of five had 5 wonderful nights at this condo. We watched humpback whales everyday, snorkeled, loved the pool and walks to shops. We drove 3 minutes to the beach boardwalk where we were able to snorkel even further out in the ocean. This condo was spacious for us and our 3 teenagers. It's located in a quieter and less commercial spot. The condo is clean, well equipped and it was nice to have two bathrooms. We explored a lot of Maui and were always grateful to head back and relax in this secluded tropical retreat. Thank you Doug & Gay for all the useful information and great directions!!! Maui Sands was very easy to drive to from the airport.

Fantastic whale watching & marine life while you sit on your lanai or look out from the unit. Whales, occasionally dolphins can be seen out further and a couple of resident turtles frequent the reef right in front of the lanai. You really can't get a better spot for viewing nature at it's best!
