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.
BEST PROPERTY FEATURES:
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.

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!
