A visit to my Maui Home is a Slice of Paradise. I am a retired airline attendant of 33 years. I want you to love my home as much as I do, and make it your home while you are here.

Heather Buono purchased this condo in 1997

We loved the access to the ocean front. We are close to a grocery and health food store that does a farmers market several days a week.

Whales, Whales, Whales! We have a unique ocean eco-system with a series of 3 protected reefs running parallel to the shore, that house some great critters for snorkeling, and a monk seal that visits our reef often.

This condo was fantastic. It was exactly what we were looking for on our first trip to Maui and definitely will be where we stay if we are fortunate enough to return. It is centrally located so that our transit time was very short whether going to eat, drink, or relax at the beach. This condo was well stocked and its position right on the ocean made for beautiful and relaxing sunsets.

CUTE LITTLE CONDO BY THE SEA

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed staying for a week! We hope to come back and stay again in a year or so. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling right in front of the codo

GREAT VIEW BUT....

  • 3 of 5
This condo has a beautiful view and is nicely decorated. That being said the bathroom is in bad need of refurbishing. The paint on the (best viewed from the toilet) walls is chipping. The baseboards had scrungy orange stuff on them. They obviously have not been properly cleaned for some time. If you look down and see the mat (supposed to be memory foam) in front of the shower you will see scrungy stains on it. I wanted to throw it away it was so nasty. The mat in front of the sink was about the same. These things can be easily replaced at little cost at Target or Wall Mart. The towels were terrible. I swear I have paper towels at home that are almost as thick and absorbent, they look cute and that's it. Also when trying to find space to put our personal items in the bathroom there was very little space. They must have kept every item that a resident left. I'm sure they thought that they were doing a favor by leaving other peoples goodies that they might need but... I really would have liked to have room for my things.
Moving on, when we arrived we started unpacking. I looked in the bedroom and said this is great! Look at all the space. Not the case, it's nice to have a lot of beach towels but it's even better to have somewhere to put your clothing.The high boy had no open spaces at all, just full of towels. The dresser was crammed full of bedding. Basically there was no room. There was decent closet space.
In the kitchen we had the same issue as in the bedroom, there was no real available space to put your things in. That being said it was well stocked with most things that you might need to cook in. It would be nice if they upgraded (it's very, very old) the coffee maker.
Now to the good stuff. It was wonderful to have your windows and doors open. You can hear the waves crashing away.I will say it was a little unnerving to have people walking 5 ft off of your front door but you expect that when renting a ground floor condo. The entire property was beautifully decorated.
I think that the owner needs to come spend a day/night in this condo that way they can see it through the eyes of their renters.
Personally we would never go back and also we would not recommend the property to a friend.

Owner's Response: I always want our guests to love this condo as much as I do. I am so happy that the guest enjoyed the location, décor, and the grounds at Maui Sands. I love knowing that our guests find the kitchen well equipped (we cook Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners in my Maui Sands kitchen, sometimes for a dozen + guests!). I also like knowing that there is ample closet and storage space in the kitchen, bathroom and the bedroom.
I have never received this kind of review at #701, so my property manager and I decided the best thing for us to do is take a good hard look at this guests complaints, and fix what needed fixing. We like feedback from guests, and try to handle repairs as quickly as possible.
We have had a very busy few months, and decided it was indeed time to paint the bathroom, even though we will be doing some remodeling in a couple of months. We were unable to find any “scrungy orange stuff” on the base boards, but we do clean all the baseboards every time a new guest comes. We just replaced the bathroom mats, but this guest was correct, there were some stains in the bath mat by the shower, so we replaced that mat.
Being very aware of what a boon to our business good towels and linens are, we replace towels on a regular basis and do not skimp. The towels are not thin, but a medium & fluffy thickness, and there are ample thick and fluffy towels in the closet for guests who prefer a thicker towel.
There is a 3x4’ cabinet in the bathroom above the vanity. It is about 1/3 full of things like nail polish remover, first aid items, sun block, lotion and other toiletry items. Of the 6 drawers in the vanity, 3 are empty. The other house a hair dryer , soaps and toilet paper. There is also space on the shelf over the toilet. We do go through these items regularly, and throw away what is old, and replace first aid items.
There are 10 drawers in the bedroom, 4 are empty. 6 house extra linens and pillows. We have to thank this guest for the heads up. We will certainly take a look at thinning that out!
As stated above, we have done a lot of cooking in the kitchen, and have never had a problem finding room for food. This unit does have a full size refrigerator.
We looked at the coffee maker, which was purchased less than a year ago, and feel that a new coffee maker is unwarranted.
I love falling asleep to the sound of the waves as well. This is a well loved and cherished property. We are very sorry this guest was unable to enjoy our second home as much as we do.

PERFECT WEEK IN MAUI

  • 4 of 5
We just came back from a 3 weeks vacation; one being on Maui Island. We were very pleased with our condo and it's spectacular view. You can trust the pictures, they really represent the properties. The condo was very clean and well equipped. Don't hesitate to rent, you will surely enjoy.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
Simply amazing. Feet from the ocean. An amazing sunset every night. Great hosts, felt very personal when we were welcomed with a "Congratulations" and a bottle of champagne for our honeymoon. Couldn't recommend it more. The photos reflected the views accurately. Thanks so much. It was a time we will never forget.

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.

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. Binoculars are provided for watching whales from the dining table, the lanai, or the observation deck.

Notes:
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!
