About John

My wife and I own 2 units at The Maui Sands. We bought our first unit, a one bedroom, in 2010. Two years later we purchased this two bedroom unit so our friends would have a bigger space to enjoy our lovely property.

John purchased this condo in 2011

Why John chose Maui

The Maui Sands is an 'old Hawaiian' property. It was built in 1965 and was one of the first resort properties in West Maui. The property consists of 6 residential buildings surrounding a large inner green space. We have a lovely pool with new pool furniture. There is a coin laundry on the property and two BBQ's for owners and guests.

What makes this condo unique

The centre green space are has some very unique plantings. Some of the palm trees are as old as the property. Our gardeners have been looking after our property for over 20 years.

Older property in great location.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this property. Comfortable for 4 adults.

Really well stocked kitchen with high quality pots, pans, cutlery, knives, etc. Twin beds were quite hard and not comfortable - more suited for children. King size bed was fine. Two separate enclosed bedrooms which accommodated different sleep schedules. Were not able to get Internet to work.

Quiet location. Minor road noise early in the morning. Lovely pool area. Loved the observation deck - saw whales, monk seal, fish, turtles! Lovely beaches within short walking distance in either direction.

Would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. We tried hard to get it right. The internet problem has been resolved....had to work with the internet provider and have hired an on island IT guy to deal with future problems. Look forward to having you back.

Love the Maui Sands C1

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3 visit to Maui Sands, 2nd staying in C1. We love this unit, on the ground floor, direct view to the Pacific, pool & the lush garden. The condo has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Fully stocked kitchen, plenty of beach & bath towels, & beach chairs, toys. John & Wendy are wonderful. Very glad we had a chance to visit with them this visit.

So perfect

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful apartment our stay. Perfect with children and a baby. Our kids loved playing in the pool, go to the park a few minutes walk, watch the sunset and turtles down the field ... Great to have 2 bathrooms. Very convenient to go shopping on foot. We would have stayed there all summer. Thanks a lot!

Pleasant Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a few different types of accomodation on our trip to Maui and Hawaii but this condo was my kids' favourite. The grounds are calm and very kid friendly, and my 4 year old son liked the pool more than the bigger one at our previous hotel. We really appreciated the baby equipment and kids' toys (even a baby walker!) and the convenient location right next to inexpensive restaurants and the market. We LOVED sitting on the deck and walking down to the water in the mornings with our coffee to watch whales swimming by. John was great to deal with and answered all our questions quickly. We didn't swim or snorkel in front of the condo but there were many great beaches nearby. I had been worried before arriving about noise but it wasn't a problem. This condo isn't the fanciest place in Maui, but for the price it is fabulous, and I would definitely return. Thanks, John!

Maui vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly what we were looking for. Nothing luxurious but practical for our family. John was great as an owner and very prompt with his email responses. The condo complex was quiet and the grounds were very nice. Pool was good and not busy at all. John was helpful in accommodating our family of seven in a condo that is listed for six. The price was great and the area has a Hawaii small town feeling. The supermarket and farmers market are within walking distance. The bedrooms face east so they warm up some during mid-day, but other than that we were very happy with this unit.

Just our style

  • 5 of 5

We prefer to seek out smaller, quieter properties without out the bling and attitude of "resorts". Maui Sands fit the bill perfectly. Lovely grounds, well thought out pool area, and of course access to the ocean make this a great place to stay. Our condo was clean and comfortable with all the extra's a person could need for guests of all ages. All the baby gear got us wishing we had another little one.......not. But when the grandkids come along this will be the condo. If you like to fix your own meals this is great. It has a well equipt kitchen and is an easy walk to a great small health food/ green grocer and the larger Times market. A couple of really good small local restaurants as well. Owners are helpful and easy to communicate with. Thanks John and Wendy, we will be back!

Car: recommended

The Maui Sands is located in West Maui about half way between Lahaina and Kapalua. This property has only 55 apartments located on 3.5 acres of oceanfront property.

The property is surrounded by all the amenities you would expect. There are grocery stores, farmers market and convienence stores within easy walking distance. The beaches of Ka'anapali are easily reached by car or for the more adventurous a short 15 minute walk. You can also walk along the beach on a beautiful boardwalk all the way to Whaler's village. There are four golf courses within a 10 minute drive including The Plantation Course in Kapalua where the PGA Hyundia (formerly The Mercedes) tournament is held early in January as the first tournament of the golf year. During the winter from late December to mid April you can watch the whales. I have seen whales breach while sitting on the lanai of this unit.

From the beach viewing platform one regularily see turtles and whales in season. There are many fine eating places easily within walking distance, everything from family run take out food places to fabulous ocean front facilities. One of our personal favorites is Sunday breakfast at the Planation house restaurant at the Kapalua golf course. On a personal note some of the eating places you would think would be expensive aren't while some you would think to be cheap aren't either. So don't judge the restaurant until you check out the menu. We look forward to helping make your Maui visit special and hope to see you year after year.
