We purchased this condo after staying on the property several times. We wanted a special place that we can truly call our second home, somewhere we can settle into and just enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Perfect for the budget vacation

  • 5 of 5

It is no secret, Maui can be quite expensive if you are not careful. This condo affords you the opportunity to save money at every turn, and allows you to be ocean-side at the same time.

The condo is equipped with everything you need to from a home comfort stand point. This allows you to take one hit on the wallet from the grocery store, instead of multiple hits eating out.

Use the travel guide that is located under the in-table. This bible will allow you to see all Maui has to offer, without being sold by a event bookie. Because of this guide we took over 500 pictures, and seriously thought we only took maybe 100.

If you stay here you will be serenaded by the ocean when you fall asleep, and when you wake up.

My wife was 6 months pregnant when we stayed here and comfortable the whole time.

We will be staying here again.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This property is great, no complaints. Close to the ocean-front walk that leads to the larger resorts, right on the beach, and very relaxing. Heather, my contact, responded to every question I had without an hour... amazing! Highly recommended.

Definitely returning to his vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I could not be happier with our rental . We stayed here for four days in March. The condo is so close to the water it was perfect. In the past we have stayed at five-star resorts just around the corner from this location and without a doubt we will be back to stay at this rental again . This small home had everything you could need while visiting Maui . We highly recommend this place!

Pleasant garden outlook

  • 4 of 5

Nicely furnished, well-equipped, bright unit. Maui Sands is near to shopping, markets and restaurants, which was a good location for our needs.

We booked this because it was billed as being able to snorkel from the property, but the rough winter seas made this impossible.

Everything else was great.

Great condo, good location for the 2 of us - would recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Maui Sands condo. It was clean, comfortable, had everything we needed and was close to the water. It did not have a water view but one could easily walk to the water. The observation decks were very nice for watching waves and the lovely sunsets. The location is great especially for good snorkeling locations and sightseeing all over the island. We would love to stay here again on our next trip to Maui.

Owner's Response: So happy you took advantage of the observation deck for those gorgeous sunsets we get, and with the addition of some new lounge chairs on the front lawn we have even more options for enjoying the water view. We do hope to see you again!

Honokawai Beach Park
Car: recommended

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. One of the favorite things about this location is the Farmers Market that is a short walk away across from the Honokawai Beach Park. They hold a special outdoor produce market on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, but they offer fresh organic produce and a deli from 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week.

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!

Notes:
We have an observation deck, built out over the seawall for whale watching and spectacular sunset views! 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!
