Honokowai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3)

We call this condo The Tree House.

This is a very comfortable large one bedroom condo, on the second floor, with a wrap around lanai boasting both a garden and mountain view 75' from the ocean. The lanai is nestled amongst the plumeria and palms, with plenty of outdoor seating for relaxing or dining al fresco.

The ocean view is peek-a-boo, but this property has an abundance of beautiful old Hawaii landscaping. plumeria, hibiscus, palms, coconut, and a magnificent big mango tree.

The kitchen is well appointed with everything you will need to prepare any meal.

Serenity was the idea when it came to decorating the bedroom. There is ample room for a roll away or crib rental as well. One of our favorite features of this condo is the jacuzzi bath. Relax in the tub and listen to your favorite Hawaiian tunes on the iPod docking station.

About Heather Buono

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 2006

Why Heather Buono chose Honokowai

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.

This condo was a second purchase at Maui Sands. We love the serenity and peaceful feeling of this condo.

What makes this condo unique

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

This is one of West Maui's first condo resorts, and it really captures the essence of old Hawaii Aloha!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed a usable beach right at our home away from home (at least for 2 weeks). The ocean was so warm and such a treat to go in every day.

The condo is so comfortable, providing everthing you need. It was another wonderful vacation in Paradise! Someone once told me if you don't have a good time here, it's your own fault. He was right-

Thank You Heather for coming to our aid after just a few hours sleep. Appreciated it!

Much Aloha

Tropical Solitude

  • 5 of 5
In the recently renovated and tastefully decorated one-bedroom, second-floor unit (known affectionately as “The Treehouse”) within the Maui Sands complex at the ocean’s edge in Honokowai, Maui, there is an art print which hangs above the sink in the modern kitchen. This lovely island image is entitled Tropical Solitude and I can honestly say that it also fully describes my feelings about this special place.

From the moment I entered this unit for an extended vacation stay, I could feel my stress beginning to melt away. Unit 720 is decorated with such warmth and style that I was immediately put at ease. The unit’s design, color scheme, furnishings and art all contribute to a sense of comfort and well being, and its second-floor, corner location in the building provides a sense of privacy and peace which is truly welcome.

“The Treehouse” is an apt name for the unit because it is surrounded by a thicket of bamboo trees and palms. There are also plumeria trees and night-blooming jasmine growing nearby which produce a sweet-smelling perfume, and almost always there is a soft gentle breeze flowing through the sliding glass doors that lead to a wrap-around lanai.

I had my morning coffee on this lanai watching the sunrise over the West Maui mountains. In the evening, I walked 50 yards to the ocean to watch a beautiful sunset while enjoying a frosty margarita or a cool gin and tonic. On days when I had the time, I indulged myself in the jacuzzi tub that is installed in the comfortable bathroom and at night, I fell asleep to the rhythmic sounds of the ocean waves which can be heard from the spacious bedroom.

The unit is completely furnished; it has everything one would need to feel immediately “at home”. I was able to prepare meals with an array of quality pots, pans, knives and utensils, and all the kitchen appliances are modern, clean and up-to-date. The bathroom is stocked with luxurious towels and the bedroom has an ample supply of linens.

Maui Sands is a slightly older apartment/condo complex but it is thoroughly modern, immaculately maintained, and beautifully landscaped. It is, by far, one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Plus, given its ocean location and the wonderful amenities, it is also very reasonably priced.

Finally, the people who live full-time at Maui Sands are incredibly friendly, thoughtful, generous and kind. All in all, Unit 720 is everything you would hope to find on a visit to Paradise.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at the Maui Sands. H, the property manager, was available to answer any questions and was really friendly and helpful. The condo had a full kitchen; we enjoyed buying incredible local fish and produce and cooking at home several evenings. Maui Sands is in a great location - near great shopping, dining, as well as the most exciting boogie boarding I've even done! Lots of great fun had in Paradise during our week in Maui. Thanks for a great time!!

Nice private corner unit

  • 4 of 5
This was a corner unit, very private, very nice. We didn't use the jacuzzi, just the shower-too many other things to do like snorkeling. If the jacuzzi is important to you, ask if it's working. Also bumper guards for the glass rectangular living room table haha if you're 50+. We had a nice time in Maui.

A small note on the jacuzzi tub, it has never been out of service, and it is a very relaxing treat to use.

Great unit

  • 5 of 5
I have had the good fortune to visit Maui frequently for almost 30 years. I've stayed in a variety of accommodations, each with its benefits. During my most recent visit (September 2013), I enjoyed this unit. It suited my needs perfectly, starting with its location on West Maui, close to shopping and good restaurants. It is a second floor unit with enough foliage on two sides that it reminded me of a treehouse. I often left the unit, and, within 30 seconds or so, was seated on an on-property oceanfront deck. Lanai and Molokai were in view. Depending upon the time of day, turtles, rays and fish might appear, and, sunsets varied nightly. The unit was well-equipped, clean and comfortable. (So comfortable, in fact,that I did not require my normal night, or two,to adjust to a new environment.)

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.
