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!

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

First time booking a vacation rental. Loved having our own place! Felt more relaxed as we came and went from activities. The beach was steps away, the little shops and eateries were close and within walking distance too. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and time we had here. Would stay again.

Amazing Beauty

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful. Close to Front St and a lot of things to do. The kitchen had everything we could have ever needed to cook. The bed was comfortable for me but my husband had a problem with his back. We really loved the deck by the water. We enjoyed every morning out there having coffee and feeding the birds. It's was very quiet while we were there and The sound of the waves rocked us to sleep at night. Will stay here again if it's available.

Awesome week in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week with my wife and our 11 month daughter. Lover the access to the beach, the condo had all it needed. Loved the spice rack. Great sunsets right off the observation deck. Would definitely come back!

Great location. Condo has everything you'd need.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there 6 nights and found this place to be very convenient. Location is great, close to various beaches. If you want surfing there are 2-3 beaches with consisting surf up north 5-10 min away. If you want calm and snorkeling ones there are few places south 5-10 min away(plus cliff jumping at black stone beach:)). Very close to shops and eating places. Also, would recommend 'Duke' restaurant which is just few minutes away by walk.

Definitely would consider staying there again.

Excellent location, well maintained, great value

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with this condo. The location was perfect for us. The price was very reasonable. The local Kapalua airport is virtually within walking distance! The condo and grounds are clean and well maintained. There is virtually everything you need supplied in the condo...just add some food. The neighbors were all friendly and quiet. Several new Weber grills are available for use. A small "observation deck" was a great place to watch the sunset by the ocean. Everything you need is within walking distance. Across the street is a farmers market, bike rental, restaurants. About 3 blocks away is another larger strip mall with Times Supermarket (my son's the pharmacist there....) more places to eat, walk in doctor's office etc. I don't remember the name, but next to the "ABC" store just 1 block south of the condo is an outdoor eatery that opens in the afternoon, cooks the food outside, is excellent!!

Nice oceanfront property

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately the condo was not cleaned when we arrived, but after calling Heather it was done immediately. In addition we got a little gift as an excuse. The absolutely highlights of this condo are the beautiful sunsets and swimming with turtles! A little disadvantage were disturbances by some neighbors very noisy in the nights.

The kitchen is well stuffed and you can enjoy your meals on your own terrace.

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!
