OCEANFRONT, 30' TO THE WATER! REDUCED SUMMER & FALL RATES! RELAXING & QUIET

Honokowai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

A great oceanfront, beachfront location that still retains the Old Hawaii charm and feel in a low rise low density resort atmosphere. Here you will find lush tropical gardens, cool trade winds, and sounds of the ocean where you can leave your stress behind and put you at peace while you are here. There is an observation deck by the ocean and two stairways down to the ocean.

The location of Maui Sands can't be beat. Located in Honokowai, between Kaanapali and Kapalua and close to everything. Directly across the street is a fish market, deli, fishing & snorkel shop, and other retail shops. The farmers market is 1 block away where you can sample and buy fresh island produce. Approximately 3 blocks away is the Times shopping center with a large grocery store, and more shops and restaurants. The Whalers Shopping Village in Ka'anapali and the town of Lahaina are just a few minutes drive to provide you more shopping and restaurant options.

Start your day with a beach walk or walk in the neighborhood to explore. A short walk in the Lahaina direction brings you to the new 'Beach Walk' which is a public walkway that runs along the dunes just behind the beach and goes all the way up to Black Rock at the Sheraton hotel. Along the way you will find a couple of beachside restaurants that are great.

Of course, there are swimming, snorkeling, and occasionally surfing right in front of the Maui Sands, depending on the conditions throughout the year. This unit is perfect to snorkel, paddle board and kayak right off the shoreline! There are three volcanic reefs that run parallel to the shoreline. During low tide, the inner area, between the seawall and the first reef is perfectly protected for keiki to play in the water and build sand castles. Between the first and second reef, the water is between 7' and 4' deep, perfect for swimming with the turtles and enjoying a morning swim. Outside the second reef, and inside the third, is a wonderful labyrinth of lava nooks and crannies that provide great snorkeling!Often you will see turtles directly in front and on occasion a Hawaiian monk seal has been known to visit the beach. Between December and April, the whales are here and from the Maui Sands property you have a great location to watch them!

Keywords: Low density Hawaiiana feeling, beach access, close to everything

We have been vacationing in the Hawaiian islands for many years, and have always found Maui to be our favorite island.

Heather Buono purchased this condo in 2010

There’s a lot do if you want activity, but there’s also a calmness here. When we found Maui Sands, we knew we were in a very comfortable place. It reminds us of what Hawaii was like when we first visited here. We are on the top floor of a two-story building and can see and hear the ocean from our lanai and bedroom. We’re probably about 50 steps from the ocean.

We hope you enjoy our part of paradise and let us know about your visit. Our rental agent is on-site and able to help you with any questions.

MAUI - WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE...

Maui - what's not to love...
  • 5 of 5
Our first trip to Maui - loved Maui and this condo was perfect for us. It is very clean and nicely maintained with very responsive onsite management. No need to worry about beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, because it was all there. The location is ideal, just north of Lahaina with beaches galore to choose from and lots of restaurant choices. One of our favorite things to do was to watch the sunset every evening from the viewing decks on the property. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property!

EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
This property was exactly as described and pictured. It was great for my husband and myself. The condo itself was clean and very well equipped. The property does not allow the use of the air conditioner between 10pm and 8 am. There is a good breeze coming through. We were comfortable but the louvred windows do not keep much sound out... If you have noisy neighbours, even in the next complex, it can be pretty loud. We would recommend this property to others. Heather, the property manager lives on site and was very helpful and kind both before we arrived and during our stay. This condo is great for people who are able to walk... The parking is a fair distance to carry bags and up a flight of stairs. We enjoyed the boardwalk nearby for morning walks. There is no beach to speak of in front of the property as the water comes right up to the sea wall but there is a nice public beach just a short distance away. The pool is ok but no umbrellas or vegetation around the pool if you want to get out of the sun for a bit. No hot tub. The laundry area and main barbecue are good. I loved the good sized lanai with love seat and small table and chairs. My favorite place to relax and read, rain or shine. Nearby, we loved the "Fish House" for a quick meal of a delicious fish burger or fresh fillets that they will even season for you. Convenient ABC store and farmers market nearby. Observation decks for whale watching and sunsets are nice, if you can ever get a seat. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and if returning to maui would definitely stay here again.

MAUI RENTAL #334439

  • 3 of 5
The unit, although old, was in good, clean condition. The bathroom was remodeled and nice.

View was obstructed both from the lanai and from the bedroom. You could see the ocean, but it took some doing.

Master bedroom could be enhanced by installing a King Bed to replace the current Queen bed, however the Queen was comfortable.

A fairly long walk to use the outdoor grills if you care to BBQ. Due to some ongoing homeowner issues we were advised against using the pool and the grills, however we used the grills on two occasions without problems.

Parking for one vehicle was OK, but if you had guests who needed to park, that would present a problem. We had no guests, so that was a none issue. You definitely need a car to get around in this location. It is 26 miles one way from the airport.

Owner's Response: We strive to create an accurate depiction of our condo, its amenities and the Maui Sands Grounds for every guest. We know these guests enjoyed their time on Maui and are glad they found the unit comfortable for their stay. We like the remodel of the bathroom as well!

We are also happy to be able to offer a free off-street parking space for our guest use. A new BBQ adjacent to our building has just been completed as well.

A relaxing stay at a good value is our goal!

MAUI SANDS IS A LOW KEY HIDDEN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My husband, step daughter and I absolutely fell in love with Maui Sands. What a great place to take in allthe Maui has to offer. The condo has all the amenities we needed and more. The unit had a great location on the property right next to the ocean. The property managet Heather was wonderful and extremely helpful. She embramces and exudes the Aloha spirit. When we had to leave we were all sad. We definitely will recommend this place to our friends and want to come back and stay longer for our next visit. Thank you for letting us enjoy a piece of your paradise.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in our special spot of paradise. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
We chose Maui Sands because of its location right next to the ocean, and the fact that it is a group of two-story buildings in a very tropical setting with many beautiful trees and shrubs. We fall asleep at night to the sound of the ocean waves. Travelers like you make it worth the time and effort we spend on out unit. We strive to make your visit a complete Hawaiian experience. Our on-site manager, Heather, is always available to assist you. We look forward to seeing you again, or, in Hawaiian, "A hui hou," Good-bye until we meet again.

13TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

  • 1 of 5
This was suppose to be a romantic getaway gift for my husband after my 2 year difficult illness. Numerous conversations with the manager, so I was confident she knew my excitement and anticipation for a PERFECT trip. Upon arrival, the refrigerator was being replaced because it had gone out…1st clue! The AC wasn’t on and the unit was very hot and humid. Unfortunately, this was the way it was for the next 5 days. The only AC to the left of the love seat on the Lanai is too small to cool this unit and gives off heat so sitting on the love seat isn't even comfortable if it’s on. With two ceilings fans, 3 room fans and AC it was NOT comfortable, We NEVER used the serene and comfortable bedroom as it was unbearable even with the windows open at night and ceiling fans. We slept on the living room floor as the uncomfortable sofa sleeper lets out directly in front of the small AC. Lastly; the picture of the view from the bedroom was taken from outside the unit which has louvers all around it. Lying in the bed you are looking directly at the closet. You have to be seated in a high chair in front of the frosted glass louvers windows looking in between the louvers to see this view. The television in the bedroom is a very old 13 inch model. We left a day early very disappointed.

Owner's Response: We're very sorry that our accommodations did not meet your standards. We have had very good responses from other guests.
We'd like to respond to some of your comments: The air conditioner is new and exceeds the recommended capacity for the area it is in. We took the time to test it and found it adequate for the space. We do recommend that guests open up the top window in the bedroom to pull the cool air into the bedroom. In the unit we also have an extra floor and table fan as well as ceiling fans to help circulate the cool air.
We immediately repair or replace appliances that are broken.
In the last 3 months, we purchased a brand-new, top-of-the-line queen-sized sofa-sleeper built with comfort in mind.
The pictures on the website are very accurate.
We feel that the television in the bedroom is an added perk to the bedroom.
Take care and the best of luck in the future.

MAUI SANDS

  • 4 of 5
We live in a rural mountain community in Canada, like to hike and explore nature. The location was great for us. The snorkelling all along the coast was easy to access, and the snorkel gear rental (Boss Frog's) is one block away and really helpful. A grocery store in walking distance, a fresh fish market across the street, a couple of restaurants with great food all in walking distance. We had a great, relaxing vacation.
We had family on the other side of the island who are into kite surfing which was only an hour away. And friends in Kihei are also pretty close. Traffic was sometimes slow around Lahaina, but hey, we're on vacation and not stressing about it.
The photos accurately reflect the rental. There was someone in the same building available to answer any questions/concerns we had. The accommodations were as expected and I would definitely recommend to others.
Thanks for a wonderful vacation stay.

Honokawai is located on the Northwest shore of Maui, with views of the islands of Molokai and Lanai across the channel. Maui Sands epitomizes old school Hawaii ambiance. This is a low density property, with beautiful grounds, including mango and banana trees. We are a very easy short walk from some lovely beaches and a Honokawai park. There are many good local restaurants, a large grocery store, two farmers markets, a health food store, a coffee shop and some great spa facilities, all within a 3-5 minute walk. One of the favorite things about this location is the Farmers Market that is a short walk away across from the Honokawai Beach Park. They hold a special outdoor produce market on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, but they offer fresh organic produce and a deli from 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week.

A short drive south to Whalers Village, and further on to Lahaina brings you to great Front Street shopping and historic sights.

North towards Kapalua there are 3 more championship golf courses, as well as fabulous beach walks and mountainside hiking! Nothing like a sunset view from the side of a volcano!

From roughly November to April we have migrating whales who come to Maui to mate and give birth to their calves.
