Aloha! This charming condo is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac across the street from Sugar Beach in a small 10-unit complex. The property is beautifully landscaped, and outdoor pool meticulously maintained. Guests are encouraged to use the 6-hole putting green, poolside barbecue grills, dining tables, and lounges. Free off-street parking is available directly behind the building. The condo's central location makes it easy to explore all the incredible restaurants, shops, golf courses, and beaches Maui has to offer. While the outdoor features and location are sure to please, the interior is equally appealing.

Upon entering this 2nd floor vacation home, you will begin to notice the attention to detail and quality amenities selected with your comfort and enjoyment in mind. From the cottage style iron bed to the sleek granite countertops, you'll recognize instantly you made an excellent choice in affordable accommodations.

UNIT HIGHLIGHTS

You will soon feel right at home in this sunny retreat with its understated tropical decor. The large 10-foot patio door in the living/dining area maximizes your view of the Pacific Ocean, pool, and courtyard area. The air conditioner with remote control features a quiet mode making it virtually soundless while keeping you cool even on the warmest days. An recently remodeled, shared laundry building with newer washer and dryer are just steps away. In addition to all the comforts of home, our conscientious housekeeper and maintenance expert are available to help make your stay as worry-free as possible. You will find the condo to be exceptionally clean and well-maintained.

LIVING/DINING AREA

The living/dining room has been furnished with a lift-top coffee table, full sleeper sofa, rocker recliner, and drop-leaf dining table. The corner entertainment center holds a stereo/CD player, DVD player, a large selection of CDs, DVDs, puzzles, board games, and playing cards. After a night on the town, you'll be able to come home, kick back, and enjoy the wall-mounted 32-inch cable TV.

LANAI (Balcony)

One of the best features of this condo is the lovely view. Take your coffee or favorite ice cold beverage outside and relax in one of the cushioned swivel chairs and soak up the sights and sun. Although smoking is strictly prohibited indoors, it is allowed on the lanai as long as the sliding door remains closed and smoke doesn't bother neighbors. In addition, a guest closet on the lanai provides storage for sports and beach equipment including tennis rackets, snorkeling gear, and sanitizer.

KITCHEN AREA

Highlights of the fully furnished kitchen include granite countertops, built-in microwave, full-size refrigerator with ice maker, apartment-size dishwasher, and stove with ceramic cooktop.

Opposite the bed is a writing desk, cordless phone for making free local and long distance calls (laptop required), free high-speed internet, and wireless router. A bookcase stores a 2nd DVD player, Maui travel guides, children's reading and coloring books and crayons. Boogie boards are stored under the bed.

BATHROOM

Adjacent to the bedroom is the pretty travertine tiled bathroom with granite countertop vanity and large medicine cabinet. Enjoy the spacious soaking tub/shower, luxury soap, shampoo and conditioner, and over-sized bath linens. The shower caddy, hair dryer, digital bathroom scale, and side table for toiletries/cosmetics are added bonuses.

To help make your stay even more convenient, you will find binoculars, activity brochures, iron/ironing board, hamper, vacuum, cleaning supplies, extra blanket, beach chairs, beach towels and tote bag, beach and rain umbrellas, cooler, and winter outerwear for sunrise/sunset trips to Mt.

About Janet Young

I taught third grade and my husband of 35 years worked for General Motors. Soon after Allen retired, we traveled to Maui for the very first time to celebrate. It didn't take long to fall in love with the island's generous aloha spirit, natural beauty, relaxed pace, and balmy weather. Several weeks into our vacation, we attended an open house on a whim and met a wonderful real estate agent. She showed us a sun-filled condo in need of a little TLC. After careful consideration, we decided to take the plunge. We didn't have a clue at that time how we were going to maintain, manage, or rent our condo from Michigan. We did know, however, that it felt like the right thing to do. Fortunately, our real estate agent offered to become our housekeeper, and her fiancé agreed to be our maintenance man. I manage our websites and rentals from home. Everything worked out quite effortlessly . . . an unexpected gift we feel was meant to be. That's how the condo name, Mauidipity Happens (part Maui, part serendipity), came about.

We often dream of moving to the island permanently, but have family on the mainland we couldn't possibly leave behind. Even though my husband and I love to travel, there isn't anywhere else on earth we'd rather be. We enjoy sharing our vacation home with guests and hope they experience the same joy and contentment we feel each time we return to our little piece of paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We appreciate all of your thought and effort to make our vacation enjoyable: everything we would need for the beach, the fully stocked kitchen, The Road to Hana audio tour CD, the reference books and all the helpful extras! It was wonderful staying in a clean place that is central to everything. Aloha!

Great Location, Well Appointed Condo

  • 5 of 5

Although we were barely in the condo, it was always good to come back to a very comfortable bed and air conditioning. The location is great. It allows you to go either north to the West area of Maui or south to Wailea fairly quickly. And the proximity of the airport is also great - less than 30 minutes. It was also nice to have received such great information in advance from Janet on the condo, the area and just helpful hints and tips. Not having to bring a hair dryer or curling iron was the best! And having shampoo, conditioner and shower gel allows you to avoid the 3 oz carry on restrictions - especially if you are only carrying on.

We didn't do any cooking or really anything in the condo but it looked fully stocked if someone wanted to. Janet also has tons of books on Maui for you to read - and games to play.

And although the living area looks out over the pool, it was very quiet - but a nice view of the pool, gardens and in the background the ocean.

Great place to stay and I would highly recommend it for someone looking for a one bedroom condo to stay in. We won't be back as we bought our own condo while we were there!

Well equipped condominium with many extras

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the location, cleanliness, the pristine landscaping, and the other owners and people leasing other units in the complex. The place is a stone's throw from a fantastic beach and has a sparkling clean swimming pool and pool area with BBQs and putting greens (nice touch). The unit comes replete with everything the very helpful owner can think of to make the experience comfortable including numerous Maui travel guidebooks, snorkeling equipment, beach gear, body boards...and really too many amenities to list! We would definitely recommend and lease again!

I can't begin to tell you how much it means to us to learn that our guests truly enjoyed themselves and appreciated all our efforts to make our condo as comfortable and well-stocked as possible. We do our best to take the work and worry out of your vacation. Thanks once again for your kind words of praise. We hope you'll return the next time you visit Maui.

Our stay at Wailana Sands

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the condo at Wailana Sands for three weeks and had a wonderful time. It is clean, comfortable, conveniently located and very quiet. The grounds are excellently maintained as well. The other occupants were regulars and very friendly. It is small but all we needed. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Kihei.

Great repeat stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just finishing up our second extended stay at this well stocked and updated condo at Wailana Sands in Kihei. Janet and Allen are great hosts and are prompt with all communications, etc. The unit is just what we are looking for in escaping the cold, midwest winters. They have all the usual amenities and so much more including snorkeling equipment, beach gear, tennis raquets, guidebooks, strong wifi - on and on. The space is well utilized, very clean and comfortable. The pool area and garden are meticulously cared for, parking is adequate and the laundry room is very handy. We love the location across from a great walking beach with easy access to exploring the rest of this great island. Janet provides much information about what Maui has to offer as far as activities, restaurants, shopping and touring. A main benefit of the smaller ten unit complex is getting to know your neighbors at the pool and happy hours!

Clean, comfortable, perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5

All we were looking for was a clean, reasonably priced place to stay with a kitchen/kitchenette to save some money on food. We got all that and SO MUCH MORE. The condo was immaculately clean, comfortable and updated. The space is utilized very efficiently and felt right at home immediately. We loved the view of the pool, nicely kept grounds and peek of the ocean from the lanai, and the sound of the birds. The kitchen had everything we wanted/needed. We appreciated the beach chairs, cooler, ice packs, beach bag, shopping bags, guide books, movie selection, wi-fi and boogie boards. We liked being able to do laundry on site. The beach was REALLY close, less than a block away (if you want ocean front you are going to have to pay much more). The beach right in front is good for swimming and great for long walks and sunsets. The condo, the beach and this part of North Kihei in general is quiet and less crowded than South Kihei. We liked it, but if you want more action it is just a short drive (or scooter ride as we would recommend) away. I think renting this condo out is Janet's full-time job. She had amazing communication providing every detail we needed to know about the condo, Kihei and Maui as a whole. Absolutely perfect for a couple wanting a nice, quiet get away. We will definitely stay here again if it's available when we come back.

Mauidipity

  • 5 of 5

Janet's condo far outweighed any expectation we had. The condo was smaller than what we had imagined. However, it fit our needs and was perfect for my wife and I. Janet was a pleasure to work with. She was very timely in her responses and patient with all of our questions during the booking process. She was very thorough with her instructions not only for her condo but also for traveling around the Island. All appliances are updated and maintained very well. She offered amenities that we didn't even know we needed. This made for a much more enjoyable trip! The place was spotless. I'm as skeptical as it gets so rest assure you're in good hands with Janet. This was our first time renting from vrbo and homeaway. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you Janet, we hope to be back soon #livealohoa

The Town of Kihei Overview

Personally, I feel that the town of Kihei (pronounced Key-hay), in which our condo is located, is truly the best place on the island to vacation. It is a top destination for visitors who want to spend time on Maui without draining their bank account. Our guests tell me they love the beautiful beaches (some of the best on Maui), homey feeling, convenience, and affordability the town has to offer.

If shopping is high on your to-do list, there are no fewer than ten shopping centers of varying sizes in the area. Eating out is never a problem in Kihei. While many visitors choose to cook their meals in the condo to save money, the town has a wide selection of restaurants from fast food and moderately priced eateries to a number of upscale dining establishments. Bird watchers and nature lovers will also find much to enjoy. Visit Kealia Pond Wildlife Refuge and Visitor Center, where endangered Hawaiian stilts and coots thrive in a salt-water marsh, and the Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, an ideal spot to learn about the marine environment and even see humpback whales breaching during the winter months. The harbor at Ma'alaea is the launching site for pleasure boats taking visitors on charter fishing excursions, whale watching expeditions, and snorkel trips. There is an excellent public golf course in Kihei as well as world class resort golf courses nearby.

Tourists and local residents alike, find it easy to relax and enjoy the sunshine, surf, and sand which are hallmarks of the area. Due in part to its great central location, many savvy visitors make Kihei their base to explore the beauty of Maui, and you should too.
