You will have the most memorable and wonderful time of your life staying at our WEST MAUI VACATION CONDO. The grounds are quiet and peaceful planted with beautiful native flora and traditional hawaiian styled architechture. You will feel like you are really in Hawaii and not some crowded resort.
Our West Maui Vacation Condo is located on oceanfront property and faces the mature gardens and ocean. Beautiful! We are at the north point of world-famous Ka'anapalii Beach in Honokowai.

Our beach is great for swimming, snorkeling, boogy boarding, or shell hunting at low-tide. Often you can snorkle off our small beach and see abundant tropical fish and sea turtles!
The picture you see on our website is of an actual sunsets I have taken on our beach! Only in West Maui will you see such spectacular sunsets. Lanai and Molokai are also on the horizon. From the months of late November to April, you can often watch humpback whales play as they birth and mate in the ocean off our beach deck.
Our property is on 3.5 acres and only 6 two story buildings which makes it a sweet gem of a place, hidden amongst the very large over crowded resorts. Our West Maui Vacation Condo is a large 2 berdoom and has been extensively remodeled in a eclectic, modern asian style using high end furnishings.

I grew up in the Far East most of my childhood because my father was in the Army. Traveling back and forth from the USA, at times we were able to spend a day or two in Hawaii when my father was re-assigned to different places in the Far East. I never forgot the magical times in Hawaii. As I got older, I would see beaches featured in travel magazines. Kaanapali Beach was always rated in the top five beaches around the World. When I had a chance to buy a second home, I immediately thought of Hawaii.
John purchased this condo in 2005
When I was looking for a second home, i got on the internet and ran across my current property on the internet. It was exactly what I was looking for. Maui Sands has turned out to be a magical place located on North Kaanapali Beach. It is a small property of 3.5 acres, not a dense high rise resort place. I did not want to vacation with 1,000 other people. I wanted to feel like I was in Maui and not just another vacation resort place. The grounds are amazing and lush and the buildings are only 2 stories and are not jammed up next to each other. It is a very laid back place. I was also looking for a property that was located well and close by to lots of things to do. This was the property and I bought it only looking at photos the realtor sent. I did not physically see it until I signed the closing documents. I have no regrets because it is the perfect place!
As I said, the property lends itself to giving you that feeling of being in Maui. The grounds with all the lush flora really is beautiful. I love hearing the waves from the ocean and the wind come off the West Maui Mountains rustle the numerous palm tress planted through out the grounds. Another benefit is that everything is close. The West Maui Vacation Condo is located at the end of all the resorts on Kaanapali Beach in a walking neighborhood. There are afforadable restaurants in walking distance as well as a video store and a large grocery store not more than 5 minutes walking time. Just up the block the other way there is a farmer's market, mexican food store, a coffee shop, and more stores. Being so centrally located, Lahaina, Whaler's Village, Lahaina Luau, and so many familiar shops are only about a 5 minutes drive away to the south. Also, there are so many great beaches in West Maui. Another favorite of mine is D.T. Fleming. Often the waves give you great boggy boarding. Maybe a 5-7 minute car ride to the north. Closer in is Napili Cove. It is a protected cove where you can float on a mattress and snorkel. There is abundant sealife to view. If you are lucky, you wil see the family of giant green turtles that often hang out by the rocks. There is so much so close.
We enjoyed our 10 day stay in this condo. It is older but very functional. It does need some TLC inside and out (such as cracked tiles and grout needs redoing in the bathroom and kitchen, carpet on lanai needs to be replaced, light switch in bathroom works sometimes, deck table was rusty/unsafe). The condo is well stocked with the beach toys, chairs and towels. The pool is very quiet and relaxing and we really enjoyed it. Sunsets at the beach were lovely. We only used the AC one night as the breeze coming through the windows was nicer than listening to the AC. We loved the fact that we could walk to the nearby health food store or regular grocery store. We never did snorkel off the beach as we didn't have water shoes to get over the rocks but apparently the snorkeling was decent. We drove to other beaches for snorkeling and paddle-boarding. It was a very enjoyable vacation all in all.
This is a unique place, a hidden gem, located at the end of all the large resorts. If you are looking for a place to get away that is peaceful, relaxing and you don't want to be around 1,000 people, fighting over a pool chair, this is the place to be. Don't let the outside of the buildings fool you. (We understand the condos are going to be repainted.) We loved the condo and furnishings; it had everything we needed, including the various beach equipment. Honestly, there was not one thing we felt was missing. It was very comfortable and large enough for four of us. We really liked that there is an electronic door lock - never had to worry about carrying a key when we went to the pool. The view from the lanai was wonderful; even though this unit is not ocean front, don't let that stop you from staying here. You can walk to a deck built over the sea wall, which we did every morning and evening to watch the turtles, sunsets and boats going by. There is great snorkeling right off the beach. Though it does not have the 100% sandy beach all the time that some of the big resorts have, that never bothered us because we aren't the type of people to require that. It has been 10 years since we last visited Maui and we wanted a quiet place to enjoy a family vacation. This was the place and we can't wait to go back.
This was our second trip to Maui and Maui Sands is a great location. (However, it's ironic that there is no 'sand' on the beach.) Perhaps in another month it would be different - but January was a great time to go to see the whales off in the distance. Best to have a car to travel the island, but if you don't ~ this is a good spot to be. Close to stores, beaches, and farmers market. So much to see and do around the island, but if you are looking for the classic resort scene with picturesque pool, this is not for you. This property is closer to true island living and is VERY comfortable. We took a one year old and being on the second floor was great (no elevator) - able to let him run free with lanai patio door open with no worries. The condo was equipped with snorkel gear, beach toys, laundry soap, cleaning supplies, condiments in the fridge, full kitchen, even toiletries that might have been forgotten at home. It has an older feel, but that is all revealed in the photos. We had a great time and felt very comfortable here. I would just like to mention that the ocean view noted (pictured) on the website has a very deceiving 'ocean view' of the true location of this unit. The picture seen on the website is completely zoomed in and cropped. We were thinking this unit would be right on the ocean, but is actually set back a bit in the complex. Other than that - it was a wonderful time and I would certainly go back! Thanks!
Thank you so much John for sharing your condo with us. It was the perfect home away from home. Had every amenity we could have ever wanted and was spacious and comfortable. We loved feeling the ocean breezes and greatly enjoyed the view from the Lanai. The complex is quiet and relaxed yet within walking distance of everything we could want. Can't wait to come back.
Just returned from a fabulous 10 day vacation in Maui. The condo is located on North Ka'anapali Beach which isn't as congested as South Ka'anapali. This was perfect for us as we enjoyed being away from the hustle & bustle that often goes along with resort accommodations. We appreciated having access to the boogie boards, snorkel gear & noodles. We used them everyday! The location is super convenient to shopping, restaurants, the farmers market (many within walking distance, I might add). Property is well-maintained & offers private decking to enjoy the sunsets. Very enjoyable visit. Thanks John.
Just returned home after a fantastic 9 days in Maui. We knew the condo was in an older resort but that did not detract one little bit from what this condo has to offer. The pictures on this site accurately depict the condo and resort. The location is ideal...close to restaurants, grocery stores and a fantastic boardwalk along the beach which we walked almost every day. The grounds are really beautiful, well-maintained and quiet, there is a nice ocean view from the balcony and we got to see whales cruising by every day. What more could you ask for!
We loved the drive north of the condo to the blowhole and the road to Hana. Snorkelling was good at Kaanapali Beach (Airport Beach area) and a trip to Iao Needle was well worth the drive. We'd definitely stay here again and recommend the condo to others! Thanks John!
