Aloha!

A beautiful ocean, beach front location where you can forget all your stresses and be at peace. This two bedroom, one full and half bath, ground floor, corner unit condominium is in a delightful location. 11 feet from the ocean. Eight paces to the ocean steps & you are on the beach or taking a dip in very swimmable water! You can sit out on your large, semi private travertine tiled lanai sipping your morning coffee or enjoying a romantic dinner with the surf as your back ground music.

This quiet location is ideal for those who want to get away from it all. At the same time, it is wonderful for families that want a more natural environment that is less commercial, but has a convenient location.

The two reefs, off shore, are a great snorkeling location & at low tide a shallow lagoon forms, great for younger children(see photo) who love to find crabs, small trapped fish and have fun in the shallow water. A wider, sandy beach is only 200 feet to your right from the access steps or a short walk on the street to the public park. At the park you will find:grassy areas under shade trees and play structures for little tykes.

The condominium was completely remodeled in November and December of 2010. It is constantly being cared for and replenished (linens, beach gear, etc., and in 2016 a new 48" SMART T.V. Blu-Rey was added. The complex is also under new management and doing well by this quiet, little boutique resort with it's classic Maui style and low density population.

A developer/contractor and design team have brought about a design concept that is modern, fresh and has a quiet beauty that reflects the environment. Elegant materials such as travertine, sea glass mosaics, granite, bamboo, brushed steel/nickel and ceramics and a punctuation of rattan and island florals that come together to achieve a wonderful ambience.

Lanai: Travertine tiled, tropical vegetation on both sides and full ocean front. Sunsetter blinds on the lanai can be brought down to offer late afternoon shade.

The living room: Wall to wall patio slider and louvre windows so that you are never without your ocean view or sounds of the surf or watching the sun set. Furnished with a blend of tropical influences and modern clean lines it is the perfect retreat. We have installed a new 2016 addition 48" SMART T.V. Also a Blu-Ray and I Home for your convenience.

PHONE: Free long distance to the main land & Canada. Hi speed internet available. A.C if desired.

Dining seating: casual bistro set, situated off from the kitchen. The kitchen granite island also offers more seating. Lanai dining: round teak table will seat 4-6 and there are a couple of kitchen stools or additional chairs in the bedrooms if needed.

The kitchen: Beautiful custom bamboo cabinetry, brushed metals and ocean inspired granite:Sea Foam. New stainless appliances, all the utensils, cook ware and dishes you would ever need to make the great ocean front lanai into your private dining room at sun set. Coffee maker, French press, blender, toaster and microwave and George Forman grill.

Basic supplies and seasonings, all there to help. BBQ's available on the grounds at the pool area.

The bedrooms: A queen with its dark rattan, large ceiling fan, louvers and quiet soothing green tones. Vanity area, good closet space & plenty of drawers. The twin with its cute bamboo accents, large ceiling fan and louvres. Beds are side by side, but can easily be pushed together or put in an "L" shape if you have a travel crib and want to sleep three little ones. In case you have two additional in your party, there are two hotel style fold away cots. Both bedrooms have top down bottom up blinds and louvre windows allowing the breezes through.

Bathrooms: The spa influenced full bathroom with it's walk in shower (with granite seat & grab bars for anyone needing extra help) is accented in travertine, sea glass and Sea Foam granite. Vanity drawers & med cabinet to store all your items away. A hair dryer is also included. Half bath adds extra convenience.

Beach towels/chairs/cooler/umbrella/boogie boards and snorkels(may vary)are also available for your convenience and stored away in a large utility closet.

The grounds are lush, established and wonderfully tropical. There is a pool with ice and vending machines, handy for the kids. The open air laundry room operates until late evening. Iron & ironing board supplied in the unit. You will need to save your quarters.

Location, location, location!! 5 minutes from Historic Lahaina and The Cannery Mall and wonderful downtown restaurants. Minutes drive from beautiful Kapalua. Stores, including: a super market in walking(1/10 ml) distance, a farmers market. Other super markets and shopping centers all within a 5-10 minute drive. Casual restaurants are close by too. An 8 minute walk to the right of the complex takes you to 'The Beach Walk'. This is a public walk way that goes along the dunes and through the large resorts on Ka'anapali beach all the way to Black Rock. On the other side of Black Rock you will find more golden beach with activities available.

Between December and April the hump backed whales come through on their way to the Pailolo channel. Whales can be seen from the lanai and it has been reported that calves have been born! Whale watching and boating excursions leave from Lahaina. The double band of reef outside your lanai is habitat to turtles and marine life including rays which glide past. WE have a couple of resident turtles that you may see each day of your visit!

The reef also breaks up the surf so you can enjoy quieter water for swimming and snorkeling . About two hundred feet up from the condo is a wide,r sandy beach with play structures(great for youngsters)grassy areas and shade trees..

We hope you will spend time with us and enjoy "your" little piece of paradise.

Mahalo!

About Doug Wallway

We are a developer/contractor, interior design team. We live in the Truckee, Tahoe area of California. We have built/remodeled high end homes and many condos, including beautiful lake front properties. Our passion is designing and building & we love doing it in beautiful places. We feel very blessed and fortunate to have this opportunity!

Doug Wallway purchased this condo in 2010

Why Doug Wallway chose Maui

We were visiting the beautiful island, Maui for a wedding and rented at The Maui Sands. We really enjoyed the location, the low density and the ambience of the Maui Sands resort. While there, we discovered there was a unit for sale & bought it! It is an older two story complex that is right on the water. It is quiet & has a more local feel than the high rises. We really enjoy the uncommercial & quiet beauty of this location.

What makes this condo unique

We love the ocean & its sound! We are only 11 feet from the surf and it is what we have always wanted. It is an older Maui style building with charm and since we don't go to the ocean to hear hotel/pool noise and looking at other guests' balconies this place is perfect. Seeing the wild life in it's natural habitat is wonderful too. Location is central and close enough to the shops & restaurants for when you need them. The setting is so beautiful you will want to stay home for dinner and the sun sets are amazing!

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about the view. Waking every morning to an unobstructed lapis and turquoise colored sea followed by gorgeous sunsets every evening enhanced the magic. Moreover, it was fabulous to watch the paddlers zip by every morning and evening....a real treat.

I admit I was a bit concerned about the rocky beach. However, we took a quick trip to the store and bought $10 water shoes....and that took care of our trepidation. Although we took a day trip out to Lanai for snorkeling....we all agreed that the snorkeling in front of the condo was just as good. There is a 5 foot green sea turtle that inhabits the waters just beyond the second break and we "adopted" her....it was a real highlight of the trip to swim with her (at a respectful distance) day after day. Another important point about the water in front of the condo.....it is deceptively shallow. So, even not-so-strong swimmers can stand in the sand .... even if they venture out 50 yards.

Although we opted to eat lunch and dinner out, the kitchen was well stocked for those who chose to cook. Another highlight of the condo is its location. We zipped into Lahaina and Whalers Village for meals, but also went to the up country for horseback riding and to visit the lilac farm - both a change of pace and worthwhile diversions from snorkeling. Also, there are several food stores close by as well as an ABC store.....We failed to bring an underwater camera and were able to buy one just minutes from the condo.

The property was amazingly quiet. Usually, the only sound we heard was the crashing of the waves. Surprisingly, we never went into the pool; there was just no need. We were pleased with how well stocked the condo was with beach towels, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and paddle boards. (We failed to notice the snorkeling gear and rented some for the week......so, be sure to check out the supplies before investing in anything.)

My only regret is that we booked our stay for one week instead of two. I have no hesitation highly recommending this property.

Unforgettable Stay, Unbelieveable View, Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

A-MAZ-ING view and we enjoyed sunsets and rainbows every day! The condo's kitchen is well-stocked and when we had a little trouble finding the counter lights, the owner emailed promptly to advise me (look under the cabinets!). Beds are very comfortable. Neighbors were a mix of visitors and owners and were all polite and considerate. The house is sprinkled with polite notices from the owners about how to best care for the furnishings so as to leave it in the best possible condition for future guests. As a guest who benefitted from the kindness of those who came before me, it was our pleasure to cooperate. The parking spot is not far from the front door so it was easy to bring in groceries or our belongings after a long day away. The neighborhood is AWESOME: don't miss the tacos or the Fish Market in the little strip across the street! And the pie place on the road to Lahaina is fantastic!!! We would stay here on a future visit in a heartbeat and have already recommended it to 4 families who have Maui in their 2016 and 2017 plans. MAHALO !!!

Suggestion: a drying rack for towels and suits would be a welcome addition and wouldn't take up much space.

Cozy and yes, right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't believe the location! We were prepared for it to be one of those places where the pics aren't taken from your actual view but, they were! You can literally walk 15 feet from the lanai and be in the water. It's shallow enough to walk in unless you go out near the second reef which they don't recommend anyway. Yes, we saw the sea turtles! So nice!

There were 6 of us and this condo provided plenty of room for us all. The roll away beds are top notch for extra guests and so are the beds in each room. You can tell that the owners are very knowledgable about what things matter in a vacation home. They've got all components to make it the perfect place.

We stopped by the store near the airport but didn't need to. There are two grocery stores nearby and several little markets just across the street. Nice kitchen, do not bring spices as they have enough to season the entire island of Maui!

Most amazing restaurant -Arias in Wailuku. It's about an hour away but I promise you it's worth it! They have something for everyone on their menu and it's that home style cooking that feels like it's your great grandma in the kitchen makin something amazing.

Just go there, trust!

Our favorite thing about this condo was that it was located in an area that is very chill. Not a lot of special attention paid to our family for being on holiday which is what we wanted. We just wanted to be and we were.

Thank you!

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect....You cannot get better than this condo. You are bottom floor corner unit on the ocean. We got up every morning and opened the sliding doors on the lanai, and we literally lived on the lanai. There were days we did not leave the condo because everything we needed was on our street. We walked to the farmers market Mon-Wed and Fri got fresh fruit and veggies. There is a natural store to the left as you leave the condo, and a grocery store to the right. There is a WONDERFUL fish market right across the street. Lots of places to eat left and right of the condo.

The condo's interior is really upscale. You will think you are walking into a 5 star hotel. Everything is so beautifully done. The pictures do not do it justice. We were in heaven.

The condo was very well stocked and then some!

Doug and Gay were awesome. We had a few things we reported to them that wasn't working ( ice maker, dishwasher and internet was slow) -They were on the phone with me and it was repaired the next day. The ice maker replaced, the dish washer was fine, we pressed the wrong buttons or something and the cable people said they needed to upgrade, so it was all taken care of, just like that. Doug and Gay were very grateful that I let them know and was apologetic that there was these small problems. They wanted my stay to be 5 star and it totally was. I reassured them, it was the best place to stay. I can't say enough about the place, and I can't thank Doug and Gay enough. I stayed 2 weeks for my 50th Birthday, and I was not disappointed! I would totally stay here again! and Highly recommend this condo!

Terrific

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time. Loved being so close to the water. The kitchen was really well stocked and made it easy to grab a quick breakfast. We loved both the ocean and the pool. A beautiful week. Hope to be back soon.

West Maui HI. 10 day visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Maui and our first experience with Homeaway. Our stay at this property was like being at home except for the ocean right off the patio. You could see the pride of ownership. Everything was extremely clean and in working order. I am a kitchen person and found it well organized and everything you could possibly need to prepare a meal even down to the spices.

The owners provide alot of great information on activities, restaurants and nearby shopping. You are in walking distance to a beach park, drug store, large grocery store, restaurants, farmer's market and close drive to Lahaina for fun shopping and more restaurants. One of our special surprises was the 1890 church across from the beach park we attended. We even sang some songs in Hawaiian. The ocean right in front of your condo you see sea turtles (it wasn't whale season yet).

The management of the grounds and the pool area are well taken are on and there are several Weber gas grills on the grounds. We were very pleased and WE WILL RETURN.

Fantastic whale watching & marine life while you sit on your lanai or look out from the unit. Whales, occasionally dolphins can be seen out further and a couple of resident turtles frequent the reef right in front of the lanai. You really can't get a better spot for viewing nature at it's best!
