SPECTACULAR! Oceanfront Complex GOURMET KITCHEN! steps to ocean & pool 5*REVIEWS

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 10 nights


About the property

Gr.fl, 2BD, 2 FULL BATH, sleeps up to 6


A perfect place to relax and unwind, this ocean front condo complex has a glimpse of a view of the ocean from the very privately set lanai. With tropical garden views and the sound of the waves in the background, relax and enjoy every minute of your vacation.

The condo has had a full remodel and tastefully redecorated in contemporary, but still Hawaiian style. The biggest and nicest kitchen in the whole complex. The dream kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, island/eating bar, lots of counter space and fully stocked with everything but your groceries. The master bedroom having a Queen bed and the second bedroom having 2 twin beds makes it perfect for families. Also, a Queen pull-out sofa sleeper in the living room makes the unit able to sleep up to 6 persons. Both bathrooms have large tiled shower and granite countertops. The only ground floor unit with 2 full bathrooms in the complex. Large TV, cable, DVD player, free wifi, air conditioner. Stocked with beach towels, beach chairs and coolers for your use, this condo has all the comforts you feel at home with ultimate vacation luxury also. 1000+ sq. feet including lanai.

The tiled lanai has lounging chairs,a patio table and chairs and has a very private feel but is still open to the beautiful lush gardens of the complex. Take a few steps to the right and you are at the pool. Lounge chairs surround the pool and a BBQ, ice machine and covered seating area to one side for relaxing, outdoor eating, and visiting. Approximately 60 steps in the other direction puts you oceanfront. The oceanfront deck is a wonderfully warm gathering place to visit and watch the whales and sunsets. NOTE: Maui Sands is oceanfront, not beachfront. The ocean entrance is rocky, not sandy. However, sandy beaches are very close by some within walking distance (1 block north or 2 blocks south) and others a short drive away.

2 BBQ areas are on the property and a coin operated laundry is only a few steps from the door. Large grass areas for the kids to play, this property is family friendly, yet still very peaceful and quiet.

Within walking distance is a grocery store, natural food store, farmers market, coffee shops, restaurants, spa, shops and much more. Beaches to the north and south. Golf courses close by. A beautiful walking/jogging pathway through the Ka'anapali area has fabulous scenery for miles. We love to go for a beautiful long walk every morning! Whalers Village is near by with lots of shops, restaurant/bars, and lovely beach. Only a 10 minute drive is our favourite town, Lahaina. It is such a lovely historic town with lots to see and do. It seems to come alive at night and you absolutely must visit Lahaina.

We welcome you to consider our condo as your vacation paradise!

Minimum stay required unless it fits into a short opening in dates. Please contact owner to discuss.

Why Diane Bontorin chose Lahaina

We chose this property at Maui Sands because it feels comfortable and luxurious at the same time without that commercial stuffiness. The area looks and feels Hawaiian. Tropical flowers, gardens, palm trees, gentle breezes, ocean air, sounds of the waves...everything is so lovely, just how you'd expect Hawaii to be.

We had so much fun!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha! We came as a family of 6, two adult kids and two younger. We found the condo spacious enough for us all. The place is great, and Diane is very prompt and helpful with any questions via email. You are ocean front but not beach front, we did not find this a problem since there are SO many beaches so close and we always wanted to try somewhere new anyway. Clean, nicely set up and we loved the area! Walking to beaches, shopping, and BAD ASS COFFEE is amazing!! We used the pool a couple of times when the kids wanted even more after a long beach day and met lots of lovely regulars at Maui Sands. The parking right outside the door is perfect. There’s a moped place about a block away that we rented at and had the most epic moped adventure up to the blowhole. Too many other adventures to name all in one week so needless to say we have loved Maui and the condo etc. Recommend the stay here!

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter-in- law, granddaughter and I stayed in this wonderful condo in July. It was a little slice of paradise. The condo itself is set up so that it has everything in it supplied to make it self sufficient. It is tastefully decorated with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Even though it is in a block of condos there is plenty of privacy with the landscaping creating a little oasis on the lanai. There are lots of activities for all ages in the area and my 10 year old granddaughter loved going to the beaches but yet coming back to the condo and swimming some more in the pool which was a short walk from the lanai. Diane was incredibly helpful. She was always gracious if you called her with a question and so easy to work with. I have to mention that even though we stayed in July we never had to use the AC. There was always a pleasant breeze and the fans were enough to keep us cool. I am already trying to plan a vacation there with the other members of my family. I will always remember this condo because so many wonderful memories were made there.

Everything you need & then some

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 children) stayed here while on Maui for a wedding. It was perfect. The condo is well equipped, the beds comfortable and the location very convenient. We loved that it was a ground floor, and the kids could be outside around the patio - and yet it still felt very private. The pool and the beach were only steps away & the public areas were comfortable for barbecuing and sitting with friends. One thing we really loved was that when the tide was out, the beach and protected tide pool were great and wave-free for small kids (however, when the tide is in, the beach is unaccessible). Our last night there, we saw giant sea turtles just off the beach. We also loved being within walking distance to a grocery store, coffee shop, restaurants. There is a fresh fish market less than a block away with wonderful fresh-caught fish of all sorts. We would definitely stay here again for all that this condo had to offer!

Nicely remodeled condo in a great location on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (including 3 teenage boys) just spent Spring Break at this Maui Sands condo. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the upgraded amenities of this extensively remodeled unit (6B). Here's some additional details:

#1) Location is excellent! Situated in Honokawai, just north of Ka'anapali, it is close to all the West Side Beaches (Ka'anapali/Black Rock, Napili, Slaughterhouse, Honolua Bay, etc.). Plus, there are many services within two blocks, including a full-scale grocery store, ABC gas station, and many restaurant (including The Fish Market).

#2) Parking! This condo comes with a reserved parking space immediately outside your ground floor entrance. This was so convenient for our family that is very active and on-the-go! Easy load and un-load every time, never a worry about finding a place to park.

#3) Communication! The owner of this unit, Diane, was very easy to work with. She is quick with email and adjusted our reservation without hesitation after we booked to match up with our plane tickets. She checked in via text and email, making sure everything was to our expectation.

#4) Air conditioning! This unit features three window AC units, one for each bedroom and one for the living room. We never needed them during the day, but they sure were nice each night. We did not see many other condos in this complex with AC units, so this is a definite bonus!

#5) Condo layout! 2 bedroom and 2 baths, with more of a great room concept. It does not have a dining area, opting for seating at the kitchen island. This wasn't an issue for us, as we chose to eat on the lanai often. Plus, is leaves more "living space" to enjoy.

#6) Kitchen is nicely appointed. We found the dishes, cookware and small appliances met all of our needs. We made several meals during our stay and took full advantage of the dishwasher.

#7) Tile floors throughout help with cleanliness. Maui vacations include a lot of beach time, and that leads to sand inside regardless of how diligent you are with leaving flip flops outside and wiping feet. The tile floors are easy to sweep and seem much cleaner than grungy carpet.

#8) We took full advantage of the beach towels, cooler bag, boogie boards and snorkel gear that was provided. There were also 3 beach chairs.

One "con" - lack of washer/dryer. The complex does have a coin-operated laundry area; however, bring your quarters as it is $3.25 to wash and dry a load of clothes.

-- Loved it!

Fabulous getaway for my friend and I!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is well appointed with fantastic gardens along the lanai! Just a quick walk to the ocean just in time to watch the sun set in amazing Maui! The owner was quick to answer any questions and we wanted for nothing in this beautiful place! The location is great with easy access to the beach and all other attractions! Thank you so much Diane for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo!! I will be back for sure!

Car: recommended

Only steps to the ocean. Our favourite and most beautiful beaches are only a short distance away. Condo is only ten minutes drive to the lovely town of Lahaina which is the heart of Maui. Lahaina is filled with excitement day and night. Stores, galleries, restaurants, bars, park, lots to do and see. A must-visit location. Many restaurants, coffee shops, grocery store and other stores within walking distance of the condo. Spectacular walking/jogging path nearby that goes for miles with the most beautiful scenery along the pathway. Golf courses nearby. NOTE: Maui Sands is oceanfront, NOT beachfront. There is a large oceanfront deck with stairs into the ocean. You can swim and snorkel but there are large rocks as you enter the ocean, not a sandy beach. That being said, Honokawai Beach Park is only 1 short block north and it has a large grass area with playground and a protected sandy beach. Great for small children. And, Kaanapali beach is only 2 blocks south which has miles and miles of beautiful sandy beach.
