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. 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 and doing well by this quiet, little 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 on both sides and full ocean front. Sunsetter blinds on the lanai can be brought down to offer late afternoon shade.

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 new 2016 addition 48" SMART T.V. Also a Blu-Ray and I Home for your convenience.

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 Maui

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.

Wonderful! Great location

  • 5 of 5

I would agree with other reviews, fantastic location to both the ocean and Maui. We found ourselves just minutes from everything! The location was incredible, we had a wonderful rainbow over the ocean the first morning and beautiful sunsets every night. It really is right on the ocean. Walking distance to the best ABC store I've ever seen and many restaurants. We got take out most nights and would eat on the lani watching the waves and waiting on sunset. 10 minutes in either direction to world class beaches and snorkeling. The closet was full of everything we needed every day. We had our own snorkel gear, but it looked like there was plenty to borrow if needed. Beach chairs and towels as well as coolers and bags. Outside the rinse hose was very helpful at the end of the day. I do wish it had a washer, but we made it without. My only real regret was not staying longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Courtney for your great review! We really try to make your stay as hassle free as possible and supply just about everything we can think of to make day trips to the beach as easy as possible. We opted to install a second half bath instead of a laundry unit as there is a large open air laundry facility on the property, sorry if you missed this! We hope that you'll be back, we'd love to see you again. We also offer all our repeat guests a "return guest" discount. Mahalo!

Fantastic unit !!! Great location and truly right on the edge of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

When we found a live camera feed aimed at the beach and water directly in front of the unit (not into the unit itself), we watched it for a least a week before arriving. We still watch it after coming home. The ocean front and the unit itself exceeded our wildest expectations and we extended our stay by a few days just before we arrived (luckily the unit was available for a few more days). Doug was very accommodating and allowed us to stay a little longer than checkout on the last day, in which we got in 3 more snorkel excursions and an appointment at a tattoo parlor before heading for the airport. We would definitely recommend this unit over any hotels or other "view of the ocean" properties we had considered. BTW, there were turtles in the reef in front of us every day, playing and feeding in the surf. Tons of fish too, if you want to snorkel right off your doorstep. We arrived in time for the King Tide days, which were great for playing in the surf and waves (but the divers could have done without). This unit made our first ever stay in Maui an experience to remember.

When Doug and Gay say that there are many items in the closets, kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms, he is correct. We did not have to go out for anything as far as spices, kitchen items, or supplies in the unit itself (except for our own food of course). The rooms are immaculate and large, and it all looks like the inside of a show home. Kudos to the cleaning staff for such a great place. The rinse hose outside the lanai is a stroke of genius and a great convenience in washing off sand before going into unit. The only use of the front door was to leave and arrive for excursions. All the rest of the time was spend going in and out the sliding door. We did not even turn on the TV or the AC. Fell asleep on the lanai loungers after watching the sunset at the end of many days (my wife is "solar powered" and when the sun goes down, she goes into shutdown mode ). This unit is hands down one of the best we have stayed in anywhere and would do so again in heartbeat.

Thanks Gay and Doug for contributing to a fantastic experience for our 20th wedding anniversary trip to Maui.

Owner's Response: Mahalo!!! We truly appreciate all the time you spent on your wonderful review. We try very hard to keep the unit as stocked, detailed and updated as possible. We visit twice a year and go through the unit and replenish and repair. The view is amazing and we didn't even know about the live cam of the coastline in front of our building! That was interesting to hear. Thank you again for visiting us and so happy you had a great visit.

I'm coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonder vacation in Maui and at this home. The home is as advertise, 11 feet from the Ocean. It was great to open the back door and go straight into the water without having to lug a beach bag or beach equipment. The coral wall was a great protector for our 2 year old. It minimized the waves so she was able to play in the water without getting knocked over. The sea turtles was a nice touch.

The condo was decorated in a Hawaii theme and had all the essentials you needed. Plus it was clean. We didn't have to worry about beach equipment, towels, chairs, food condiments, some toys, books, etc. I would definitely recommend this home and as I said I'm definitely coming back in the near future.

A week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We'd like to thank you again for sharing your home with us. We had an amazing time. The condo at Maui Sands was perfect! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and the snorkel/beach equipment was so convenient! We felt right at home. The location of the condo was so close to Ka'Anapali and Lahaina. My husband was so excited that he got to swim with a sea turtle in the waves right off the lanai. We hope to return some day soon :-).

Mahalo! Brian & Andrea

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!
