Aloha!

A beautiful ocean, beach front location where you can forget all your stresses and be at peace. This two bedroom, one full and half bath, ground floor, corner unit condominium is in a delightful location.

Sleeps 4 adults (queen and twin bedroom) The roll-away cots are ideal for kids and teens.

11 feet from the ocean. Eight paces to the ocean steps & you are on the beach or taking a dip in very swimmable water! You can sit out on your large, semi private travertine tiled lanai sipping your morning coffee or enjoying a romantic dinner with the surf as your back ground music.

This quiet location is ideal for those who want to get away from it all. At the same time, it is wonderful for families that want a more natural environment that is less commercial, but has a convenient location.

The two reefs, off shore, are a great snorkeling location & at low tide a shallow lagoon forms, great for younger children(see photo) who love to find crabs, small trapped fish and have fun in the shallow water. A wider, sandy beach is only 200 feet to your right from the access steps or a short walk on the street to the public park. At the park you will find:grassy areas under shade trees and play structures for little tykes.

The condominium was completely remodeled in November and December of 2010. It is constantly being cared for and replenished (linens, beach gear, etc., and in 2016 a new 48" SMART T.V. Blu-Rey was added. The complex is also under new management. It's a slice of old Hawaii: a quiet, boutique resort with it's classic Maui style and low density population.

A developer/contractor and design team have brought about a design concept that is modern, fresh and has a quiet beauty that reflects the environment. Elegant materials such as travertine, sea glass mosaics, granite, bamboo, brushed steel/nickel and ceramics and a punctuation of rattan and island florals that come together to achieve a wonderful ambience.

Lanai: Travertine tiled, tropical vegetation and full ocean front. Sunsetter blinds on the lanai can be brought down to offer late afternoon shade. A LOW 32" bamboo garden fence (not shown in the video) has been added 3 feet beyond the lanai on the grass, adding to your privacy, but not compromising the beautiful Moloka'i view or the glorious ocean and breaking surf!

The living room: Wall to wall patio slider and louvre windows so that you are never without your ocean view or sounds of the surf or watching the sun set. Furnished with a blend of tropical influences and modern clean lines it is the perfect retreat. We have installed a 48" SMART T.V. and Blu-Ray.

PHONE: Free long distance to the main land & Canada. Hi speed internet available. A.C if desired.

Dining seating: casual bistro set, situated off from the kitchen. The kitchen granite island also offers more seating. Lanai dining: round teak table will seat 4-6 and there are a couple of kitchen stools or additional chairs in the bedrooms if needed.

The kitchen: Beautiful custom bamboo cabinetry, brushed metals and ocean inspired granite:Sea Foam. New stainless appliances, all the utensils, cook ware and dishes you would ever need to make the great ocean front lanai into your private dining room at sun set. Coffee maker, French press, blender, toaster and microwave and George Forman grill.

Basic supplies and seasonings, all there to help. BBQ's available on the grounds at the pool area.

The bedrooms: A queen with its dark rattan, large ceiling fan, louvers and quiet soothing green tones. Vanity area, good closet space & plenty of drawers. The twin with its cute bamboo accents, large ceiling fan and louvres. Beds are side by side, but can easily be pushed together or put in an "L" shape if you have a travel crib and want to sleep three little ones. In case you have two additional in your party, there are two hotel style fold away cots. Both bedrooms have top down bottom up blinds and louvre windows allowing the breezes through.

Bathrooms: The spa influenced full bathroom with it's walk in shower (with granite seat & grab bars for anyone needing extra help) is accented in travertine, sea glass and Sea Foam granite. Vanity drawers & med cabinet to store all your items away. A hair dryer is also included. Half bath adds extra convenience.

Beach towels/chairs/cooler/umbrella/boogie boards and snorkels(may vary)are also available for your convenience and stored away in a large utility closet.

The grounds are lush, established and wonderfully tropical. There is a pool with ice and vending machines, handy for the kids. The open air laundry room operates until late evening. Iron & ironing board supplied in the unit. You will need to save your quarters.

Location, location, location!! 5 minutes from Historic Lahaina and The Cannery Mall and wonderful downtown restaurants. Minutes drive from beautiful Kapalua. Stores, including: a super market in walking(1/10 ml) distance, a farmers market. Other super markets and shopping centers all within a 5-10 minute drive. Casual restaurants are close by too. An 8 minute walk to the right of the complex takes you to 'The Beach Walk'. This is a public walk way that goes along the dunes and through the large resorts on Ka'anapali beach all the way to Black Rock. On the other side of Black Rock you will find more golden beach with activities available.

Between December and April the hump backed whales come through on their way to the Pailolo channel. Whales can be seen from the lanai and it has been reported that calves have been born! Whale watching and boating excursions leave from Lahaina. The double band of reef outside your lanai is habitat to turtles and marine life including rays which glide past. WE have a couple of resident turtles that you may see each day of your visit!

The reef also breaks up the surf so you can enjoy quieter water for swimming and snorkeling . About two hundred feet up from the condo is a wide,r sandy beach with play structures(great for youngsters)grassy areas and shade trees..

We hope you will spend time with us and enjoy "your" little piece of paradise.

Mahalo!

About Doug Wallway

We are a developer/contractor, interior design team. We live in the Truckee, Tahoe area of California. We have built/remodeled high end homes and many condos, including beautiful lake front properties. Our passion is designing and building & we love doing it in beautiful places. We feel very blessed and fortunate to have this opportunity!

Doug Wallway purchased this condo in 2010

Why Doug Wallway chose Lahaina

We were visiting the beautiful island, Maui for a wedding and rented at The Maui Sands. We really enjoyed the location, the low density and the ambience of the Maui Sands resort. While there, we discovered there was a unit for sale & bought it! It is an older two story complex that is right on the water. It is quiet & has a more local feel than the high rises. We really enjoy the uncommercial & quiet beauty of this location.

What makes this condo unique

We love the ocean & its sound! We are only 11 feet from the surf and it is what we have always wanted. It is an older Maui style building with charm and since we don't go to the ocean to hear hotel/pool noise and looking at other guests' balconies this place is perfect. Seeing the wild life in it's natural habitat is wonderful too. Location is central and close enough to the shops & restaurants for when you need them. The setting is so beautiful you will want to stay home for dinner and the sun sets are amazing!

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about the view. Waking every morning to an unobstructed lapis and turquoise colored sea followed by gorgeous sunsets every evening enhanced the magic. Moreover, it was fabulous to watch the paddlers zip by every morning and evening....a real treat.

I admit I was a bit concerned about the rocky beach. However, we took a quick trip to the store and bought $10 water shoes....and that took care of our trepidation. Although we took a day trip out to Lanai for snorkeling....we all agreed that the snorkeling in front of the condo was just as good. There is a 5 foot green sea turtle that inhabits the waters just beyond the second break and we "adopted" her....it was a real highlight of the trip to swim with her (at a respectful distance) day after day. Another important point about the water in front of the condo.....it is deceptively shallow. So, even not-so-strong swimmers can stand in the sand .... even if they venture out 50 yards.

Although we opted to eat lunch and dinner out, the kitchen was well stocked for those who chose to cook. Another highlight of the condo is its location. We zipped into Lahaina and Whalers Village for meals, but also went to the up country for horseback riding and to visit the lilac farm - both a change of pace and worthwhile diversions from snorkeling. Also, there are several food stores close by as well as an ABC store.....We failed to bring an underwater camera and were able to buy one just minutes from the condo.

The property was amazingly quiet. Usually, the only sound we heard was the crashing of the waves. Surprisingly, we never went into the pool; there was just no need. We were pleased with how well stocked the condo was with beach towels, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and paddle boards. (We failed to notice the snorkeling gear and rented some for the week......so, be sure to check out the supplies before investing in anything.)

My only regret is that we booked our stay for one week instead of two. I have no hesitation highly recommending this property.

Charming condo with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The condo and the complex are both clean and beautiful! The grounds were picturesque. Everything we needed for the beach / snorkeling was already at the condo! It was wonderful. Couldn't have asked for a prettier place! The only downside to our visit was a rehabilitation project going on with the sea wall. The view was slightly obstructed with a short (3ish ft) bamboo fence to keep visitors from stepping on or around the sea wall. The water was still visible from the condo and the lanai, just was an unexpected addition to the view. Also, it may be good to know that this condo does have a/c, but it is not thermostat controlled. It is on a timer, which requires you to restart it very often. We finally just opened all the windows and let the breeze blow through. We were only uncomfortably warm toward the end of each day right before the sun set. Still would definitely recommend this condo!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review, it's always great to hear from our guests. RE: remarks about the low garden fence. The 32" garden fence made from bamboo (purposely manufactured) was recently installed an additional 3ft. outward beyond the lanai and is well below eye level even when sitting and doesn't in anyway obstruct the glorious ocean view. This low, fence now closes off access from anyone wanting to walk along the seawall, so the lanai is very private! The A/C is on a 4 hour timer, most owners have this to avoid wasted energy (guests leaving for the whole day or having the windows open and the A/C on for hours upon hours). As we are a corner unit we can optimize the trade winds /cross breezes and that being said, we never personally use the A/C, we LOVE to enjoy the openness and the breezes coming through! This what being in the "tropics" are all about! (We also have louvre windows and large ceiling fans in all room) We are happy that the beach gear and snorkels etc. are well received, we want to make your visit as hassle free and as comfortable as possible! Many thanks again. Mahalo!!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The property itself is beautifully kept. Great location, close to everything and convenient parking. It was wonderful to sit on the Lanai and have coffee in the morning and watch the ocean and the whales. We saw a few breach but lots of tales!

Owner's Response: Many Mahalo's, Teresa! Thank you so very much for your lovely review. We always appreciate the fact that our guests spend time in writing and that their visit was just what they needed. The lanai is truly a lovely spot to enjoy privacy and a great cup of coffee, not to mention watching the whales! AND the most awe inspiring sunsets! Hope you'll be back and thanks again!

Beautiful condo steps from the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 11 days over the Christmas holiday. The condo was very clean, well organized and fully stocked. It is literally steps from the ocean. Waking up every morning to the sound of the surf and having coffee on the lanai was just wonderful. Also being able to see the whales and turtles right from our lanai really added to our enjoyment of the condo. The location of condo itself was close to restaurants, shops and beaches. We could walk to the nearby fish market and get take out to bring home. We especially appreciated how private and quiet the condo was. Doug called us on our first full day there to check on us and see if we needed anything or had any questions. We loved our stay here and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic whale watching & marine life while you sit on your lanai or look out from the unit. Whales, occasionally dolphins can be seen out further and a couple of resident turtles frequent the reef right in front of the lanai. You really can't get a better spot for viewing nature at it's best!
