Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our 3rd trip to Maui. We enjoy staying in this area, close to several beaches for snorkeling. This condo is very nice, comfortable furnishings& well stocked. We often cook meals when we travel and appreciated the nearby stores and Farmers Market. The kitchen is small but had everything we needed (thanks for spices, baggies, foil, coffee filters, etc.). We saw an eel, turtles & of course whales! So much closer and more active than any other visit. We enjoyed being able to sleep to the sound of the ocean, didn't need to run AC. We were very grateful for beach chairs and umbrella (we have had to purchase at other condos and then left them in the unit). The other beach items are great to have too (if we had our kids/grandkids along with us we would have use them). It's not possible to bring all the beach stuff by air. Your guest information notebook is a great resource!

Mahalo!

Perfect Place to be!

  • 5 of 5

You have a beautiful view of the ocean from the lanai, or you can walk down the stairs and you overlooking the ocean. The condo was spacious, clean, equipped. We even did a couple massage in the living room. Heather gave us a name of a massage therapist and she came over one day. We opened the sliding doors and listened to the ocean as we got a massage. The condo was in a perfect location - you can walk to everything you need - coffee, farmers market, groceries, restaurants. There were days that we didn't leave the condo. You are just a few minutes from the crowds in Lahiana. It was so very perfect. Did I mention Heather was great from the time I contacted her to rent the condo, I had questions and she was always there. Thanks Heather!!

Staying so close to the water was such a treat! We fell asleep to the sound of the waves crashing every night. The condo was stocked with everything you could ask for and so close to the farmers market and grocery store so getting groceries was very convenient. We cooked breakfast almost every morning and watched whales breach from the lanai and seating area along the water as we ate. The on site parking was great as well. Being close to Kaanapali and Lahaina was so nice, but being able to escape the activity of the busier areas was a huge plus. Definitely loved staying at Maui Sands! Heather was great and available to answer any questions or concerns. Will definite stay here again! Thank you!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo to call home during our stay on the beautiful island of Maui. We thank you, for sharing your condo with us. This condo is centrally located in between so many wonderful beaches. Our personal favorite was Kapalua. The condo is in great shape, was very clean and stocked up with everything imaginable. The beach chairs, umbrellas were so nice to have, and you could never run out of clean towels, they provide so many. The on-site manager of the building and her dog, were fun, very friendly and helpful. As for those that have mentioned the parking spot being far away, I never found it to be a problem. We saw many whales from the observation deck. Having a grill right there so close to condo was nice. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone I know, you wont regret it:)

Great Location, Good Value

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay in this conveniently located, comfortable and well equipped vacation suite with a lovely view from the lanai -- and only a few steps to the ocean.

The best feature? Lulled to sleep every night by the sound of crashing surf!

Thanks for accommodating us on short notice, Heather. Look forward to visiting again!

We love this condo! We stayed here last year and had so much fun that we immediately booked it again. It is heavenly: waking up to the sound of surf, sleeping in the super comfortable King-size bed, enjoying the gorgeous sunset views from the lanai.

The condo is a short 5 minute walk to the friendly Farmer's Market (which has the best Green-Go acai bowls) and Boss Frog's (hint - reserve snorkel gear online for best price). If you like to walk, take a 15 minute stroll to Slappy Cakes or Duke's for great breakfasts.

The kitchen is more than adequately stocked so we cooked several times and used the new propane grill at the bottom of the stairs. The condo has wi-fi, a dvd/vhs player with movies, and loads of beach gear.

Heather, the onsite manager, is awesome and helped us when we had questions. In fact, everyone we met at the condo was very friendly and laid back. Overall, this clean and cozy condo is perfect for us, and I know we'll be back for a 3rd time.

Maui Sands II is a lovely property that epitomizes that 'Old School' Hawaiian feel. We have beautiful grounds with mango, banana and a myriad of tropical plants and flowers blooming. The property is low density with 20 units sitting on a little over an acre.

The real gem of the property is the Pacific Ocean View. The property sits on a stretch of oceanfront facing the Island of Lana'i just to the south, and Moloka'i across the channel for one of the more spectacular sunset views on the island of Maui.

Our shore has three volcanic reefs running parallel to the shoreline, providing a mini snorkeling/swimming channel 4-7' deep, perfect for viewing our parade of turtle up close! The inside of the 1st reef is perfect for smaller kids to build sandcastles at low tide, and play in the water, as the reefs serve to protect our narrow stretch of sand from the rougher high tide surf.

A short 3 minute walk to the north brings you to Honokawai Beach Park, with a playground. To the south is the Honolua Kai Park and a fabulous beach walk going all the way to Whalers Village and Black Rock.

Notes:
• The front door has a security screen installed making it easy to open the front door to allow the breezes to flow through. This unit is situated perfectly to swim, snorkel, paddle board & kayak right off the shoreline! There are 3 volcanic reefs parallel to our shore. • During low to mid-tide, the inner area, amid the seawall & the 1st reef is a well protected area. Between the 1st & 2nd reef is a natural channel we refer to as 'the tub', only 4-7' deep, the reefs protect this area from ocean swell and is great snorkeling along some of the healthiest reef on the west side of Maui! We see turtles daily, as well as tons of fish, Eagle rays, sea birds and the occasional Monk seal. From December through mid April this is a great location for whale watching. Past the 2nd reef and among the lava labyrinth of the 3rd is the best area to observe a large variety of sea life while snorkeling! This unit is perfect to snorkel, paddle board and kayak right off the shoreline!
