About the property

Ground floor, ocean front property, 2 bed, 1bath air cond, famiiy friendly unit.

Maui Sands unit 1D is a family friendly, air conditioned, ground floor, modern, 2 bedroom 1 bath unit located on an direct ocean front property in west Maui. As of 6/15/16, we have new furniture and the bedrooms have been repainted. Our unit has 2 twins, 1 queen in the master and a pull out sofa sleeper. Snorkel, catching small fish, swimming, surfing, kayaking is just a 30 second walk from your unit.

The unit has been completely remodeled and features granite counter tops, crown molding, a newly tiled shower and customized stereo speakers built right into the ceiling. Wonderful for families because it's loaded with books, toys for toddlers, board games and random snorkel gear.

Enjoy eating on our large dining table on the lanai surrounded by the lush tropical gardens and palm trees. The unit overlooks the pool and garden area of our ocean front property and your large lanai doors open right up to the tropical garden and pool area of the property. The pool, gas BBQ, ice machines, soda machine, picnic tables and the property 'library' are all within 100 feet of this unit!

Imagine relaxing on our shady lanai, sipping a cocktail and listening to your kids laughing while playing in the pool or trying to catch small gecko’s in the tropical plants just off you lanai. All while your significant other BBQ's dinner at the pool and socializes with other friendly guests.

This unit comes with high-speed wireless Internet, cable TV and a full kitchen to cook all your favorite meals. Washers and dryers are located on the property.


Maui Sands is located at the border of North Kaanapali Beach and Honokowai areas of the island. We're right on the ocean in west Maui, just a few minutes north of Kaanapali and 10 minutes from Lahaina town. Just south of the Kapalua area. The resorts next to us are Papakea Resort and Paki Maui.


Snorkeling and swimming right from our property. Being able to walk ON THE BEACH from our property for 3 miles down to Kaanapali.

Maui Sands Resort is actually the very last unit that you can walk on the beach for miles all the way down to Black Rock in Kaanapali. “Walk on the beach” being the key words! Other properties might boast they have a private beach or a little cove or something but you won’t be able to take a long sunset or morning strolls more than 100 yards in either direction on the beach. It would just be too dangerous to walk on the lava rocks and cliffs from one cove to the next.

Kaanapali Beach was voted nicest beach in the US and Black Rock is one of the top three “must snorkel” places to on Maui! I personally have seen eagle rays, turtles, Hawaiian monk seals and dolphins right in front of our property. Other properties north of Maui Sands you have to actually walk on the road onto our property then walk on the beach to Kaanapali. Were talking about a 2–3 mile stretch of beach and your at one end.


Direct on the ocean facing the islands of Lanai and Molokai

1 assigned parking spot. NO resort or parking FEES

Four acres of impeccably maintained grounds

Large grass areas with tropical foliage and lush tropical gardens

Unheated freshwater pool (90% of pools in Hawaii are unheated)

2 BBQs and large laundry facility

Sunset views directly over the ocean. (See the green flash!)

Quiet and peaceful old Hawaiian property

Lots of open space and older tropical trees

No need to drive anywhere to snorkel swim!

2 tropical reefs right out front of property

Surf, kayak, snorkel and swim right at Maui Sands

The reefs provide a great baby beach for small kids at low tide

Walk from our property on the beach for miles towards Kaanapali

Walking distance to world class restaurants (Dukes, Roy’s, Hula Grill)

2 BBQ grills, large pool, soda machines, restrooms

Turtles eat every morning right off our reefs!

Our Beach: It moves!

Since were at the very end of a 3 mile long stretch of beach, our shoreline changes drastically depending on currents and storm systems far away. If you're staying right in the middle of middle of the 3 mile stretch of sandy beach, you're probably NOT going to notice the movement and you'll have a sandy beach all year around. But at the very end of any beach, you’ll notice the changes. By the way, right in the middle of Kaanapali Beach is Kaanapali Resort, which is a very expensive area of the island and that’s where you’ll find the Hyatt, Sheraton and Westin Resorts.

Typically during the summer months the ocean currents move the sand north towards our property and our beach grows. This is due to the increased tropical activity south of the islands. During the winter months the Alaskan storm systems push the current and the sand south towards Kaanapali and our beach comes and goes. But, a sandy beach to plant your towel down on is never more than say the property next door. Don’t’ bother asking if it’s sandy when you plan on coming because it can change drastically just overnight! It all depends on the currents and storm systems around the islands and sometimes we get effects from storm systems or hurricanes as far away as Australia and Fiji!

4.4/5 -
(5 traveler reviews)

Wonderful Family Unit, Ocean Front Property, sleeps 6, A/C, Modern, Ground Floor
average rating of 4.4 based on 5 reviews

Beautiful setting, with a true Maui feeling. Great for families of all ages.

  • 5 of 5

Our suite was equipped with everything we needed and more. We found boogie boards and floaties for the pool in the cupboard too! The beds were very clean and comfortable, with little noise from the street. I would say this is perfect for 4 people. Might be a tad cramped for 6 but definitely doable. The lanai was large with a table for 6 and a seating area.

The setting of this suite is right behind the pool, which is great for the kids and far enough away that there was no noise from it. Just a few steps away past the pool is the waterfront that is facing the setting sun each night. Just breathtaking.

It was great not having to deal directly with anyone, as we had an email with all the information we needed and more. It felt like we were walking into a friends place.

There were some really great beaches around this area and lots of places to walk to. It is way less busy then most places we visited and felt we were free to be ourselves and had no one watching over us. (The neighbouring resort pools had a bunch of fun stoppers, not allowing balls and floaties in the pool.)

Highly recommend this place! Go for it.

A decent condo overall

  • 3 of 5

While the photos were definitely taken right after the remodel was done, the overall feel now seems a bit worn with some damage overtime. It was a good size for our family of 4 and was a reasonable price. The other items I have for within the condo are nit picky, as honestly I am a bit specific about what I rent and if they had shown me the outside of the complex that faces the street, I would have ran the other way. The outside of the complex that is not in the courtyard, would scare you away, as when we got there late at night, we were all wondering where I rented.

It ended up serving our needs and it was good to be next to the public beach, as in front of the condos, during the daylight hours there was no beach to be seen. Also very close to food, good internet connection and the pool was nice and quite. However, the people in the condo complex are not the friendliest to the renters that come and go.

Maui Sands Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We're finishing up our 11 day stay on here on Maui, and now headed to Waikiki for a few days. The condo was awesome and exceeded our expectations for comfort and homeyness. The owners have done an excellent job in their renovation and attention to details. Maui Sands seems to have been well kept up over the years, and is a lovely place to visit, and we will definitely return soon. Kory from

Maui Seabreeze Vacations Rentals made our vacation easy and seamless. We would highly recommend Him for your vacation planning here on Maui.

Very respectable property at a rather fair price!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, our comments would be rather nit picky and not contribute anything... We throughly enjoyed this unit! For a property that is (or nearing) 50, it has been extremely well maintained. The grounds are well kept and inviting. The full-times residents we encountered were friendly and welcoming. The pool is great!

The unit is well stocked and facilitated my "Master Chef" fantasies while cooking with ingredients bought a few blacks away at the local open-air market. The property is close to everything, but does offer a feeling of seclusion and solace.

Great condo, perfect location and FABULOUS people

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for 8 days (husband, 5 yr old daughter and MIL) last May. It was perfect for us. Fully kitted for families, great location for all our adventures, and very clean. What stood out for us was the service provided by Kory from Maui Seabreeze Vacation Rentals We forgot our SLR camera at the pool when we checked out. We contacted Kory from the airport in a panic. On a Sunday AM, Kory drove to the complex, found our camera and then packaged it up to mail it to us. Saved our holiday! We really appreciated Kory going above and beyond. Highly recommend renting this property or another serviced by Maui Sea Breeze Vacations.
