Old Hawaii Oceanfront Feel + Modern Eco-friendly and Hi-tech Living

SUMMARY OF KEY UNIQUE FEATURES:

1. 12 ft from the water and no one is allowed to walk in front of this ground-floor condo. With a privacy level that rivals single-family homes, this makes the condo one of the most private locations on Maui that offers a 180-degree oceanfront ground-floor experience.

2. 250 Mbps wireless Internet, 75” 4K TV, 5 speakers in-ceiling surround sound system and massage chair provide the enjoyment and comfort that possibly rivals your own home.

3. Reverse osmosis drinking water filtration, chlorine filtration in the shower, zero VOC paints, BPA-free glass Tupperware, Teflon-free frying pans and Vitamix blender make our condo ideal for families and the health conscious. West Maui’s only health-food grocery store is just 400 yards away.

4. 100% organic cotton linens, bamboo towels, 100% natural latex toppers, efficient appliances like the double-oven stove, bamboo trims and FSC certified lumber used in construction and 100% renewable energy powering our home (Arcadia Power) make our condo a very eco-conscious choice.

5. Safe swimming area in both the ocean and pool, the lowest oceanfront condo density in Honokowai, lots of nature, walkable paths and shuffleboard provide plenty of activities right on site so you don’t have to leave the complex to enjoy the best of a tropical paradise.

LOCATION: #4B is in the quietest building in the complex and closest to the water (just 12 ft) it is on the ground floor and just 25ft away from the steps down to the water. There is abundant marine life thanks to the Kahekili Marine Reserve that fronts the condo. It prohibits the hunting & capture of many species of Hawaiian fish which benefits snorkelers & animal lovers. Beyond that is the Hawaiian Humpback Whale Sanctuary with the densest concentration of humpbacks in all of the Hawaiian Islands. The double reef system out front breaks the waves into bathtub calmness during low tides making it one of the best spots in Maui for toddlers to play in safety, Check out our live webcam (Google: Maui Sands webcam) to catch some breaching humpback whales in the winter months. The webcam is attached to the front of the lanai so the view from 4B will be exactly what the webcam shows.

AMENITIES: 4B is a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo and can be made upon request to have 1 king and 2 twin beds or 2 king beds. A comfortable 2” 100% natural latex king size topper is used when converting the 2 twin beds to a king so it becomes a real king size bed. Above the bedroom doors are bamboo louvers allowing more trade winds to flow through & let you fall asleep to the gentle sound of the surf so your bedroom door can be closed for privacy. The bedroom linens and blankets are 100% organic cotton. For larger parties, the queen-sized sofa bed in the living room comes with a special memory foam mattress which offers a more comfortable sleeping experience than traditional sofa bed spring mattresses.

The bathroom shower is 60% larger than standard showers & features a beautiful step-in river rock tiled shower with built-in bench and chlorine filtration (removal) system. (lots of chlorine used in Maui's water.) Bathrooms are finished with granite counters & bamboo cabinetry.

The kitchen has beautiful bamboo cabinetry & granite counters. It has an oversized large & convenient kitchen sink, tons of dishes, glass Tupperware, cast iron and ceramic fry pans and stainless steel pots & pans to help you with your Hawaii meals & avoid BPA plastics and carcinogenicTeflon. The double oven stove and fridge with ice maker were both selected because of their extremely efficient properties. There’s also a beverage fridge under the counter if needed. The kitchen is equipped with a reverse osmosis filtration system and stainless steel water bottles and straws so you don’t have to worry about buying bottled water or suffering from the horrible local water on tap. Make the best tropical smoothies using the supplied powerful Vitamix blenders or enjoy the best coffee with our stainless steel french press or traditional coffee maker. There’s plenty of seating along the kitchen counter, in the dining area or out on the lanai (dining area and chaise lounges) for everyone to feel comfortable.

The living room has a 75” 4K TV with Netflix, Youtube etc. & Blu-Ray player. Guests rave that the picture quality combined with the in-ceiling 5 speaker surround sound system make movie watching rival what they have at home! There is a popcorn maker. There's a nice massage chair in the living room that can help you relax after you return from your outings to relax & unwind in while listening to the surf.

OTHER AMENITIES: 250mb/s wifi private internet, beach chairs, snorkel & beach gear, umbrellas, beach towels, cooler, child stroller, shuffleboard equipment for your private use, 6 yoga mats & blocks, highchair & playpen with padding that can be used as a crib, rice maker...

“Perfect location”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2015

Truly a perfect location. The constant sound of the waves on the reef outside is very relaxing. Easy access to snorkeling right outside the apartment. The apartment is extremely well kept and has a great range of cooking equipment, plates, glasses etc – everything we needed. Sitting for meals on the patio is just beautiful. There are plenty of supermarkets nearby and even the ABC store at the nearest gas station has a lot of useful supplies! We would thoroughly recommend this condo and would love to go back!

“Every detail taken care of...”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2015

We loved the Maui Sands condo, it was completely perfect for us.Every detail was so thoughtfully taken care of that we really didn’t have to worry about a thing. From the provided cooler, beach chairs, and umbrella, to the snorkel gear and ocean shoes. Almost every time it occurred to us that we needed something, we found it in the condo. The complex grounds were so well maintained and quiet. We used the grill one night, as well as the lovely pool. The availability of recycling was very important to us, we really appreciated that. The beds and linens were very comfortable and tasteful. We also really appreciated the Condo Manual – it answered every question we could possibly have. Beautiful place to stay! It's not every morning you get to have coffee while watching the whale show - but that's the norm here. Ryan was also wonderful to work with throughout our whole planning phase, and into the week of our vacation. Very easy to communicate with and helpful.

“Clean, nice to come home to.”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2015

Booked this condo for a week with my family. Some maintenance issues but were responded to quickly. Bring your own snorkel gear, the ones in the condo were well used. Beverage fridge did not work but was not needed. Owner takes great pride in this property.

“Unit 4B”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2014

Great condo! You won’t find a condo that provides as many amenities as Maui Sands. Our stay was eight nights in June with three TEENAGE grandkids. They had the time of their life - - even if it was with the grandparents! We were all impressed with the many, great accommodations and unbelievable view. The location is mid-way between the Kaanapali Resort area and Kaapalua. The kids especially enjoyed walking the town of Lahaina, seeing the beautiful, large, banyan tree, enjoying the different shops and wanting to try out all the different restaurants. The kids enjoyed great snorkeling right out the back of the condo, literally, right outside the condo’s back door. You walk down a few steps and are in the ocean water. They enjoyed the beach so much they didn’t have a chance to use the pool. The trade winds were so enjoyable. No need to use an air conditioner. The sofa bed in the living room provided the lull of the ocean for a good night’s sleep. The kitchen was well supplied to accommodate cooking/eating in vs. always having to dine out. The three cookbooks were hilarious to read (yes, for those who like to read cook books – you will know what I mean when you see these). The stainless steel sink is big enough to do laundry, however, the condo provides a laundry area equipped with great commercial washers and dryers close by. The condo also provides eco-friendly soaps, shampoos, sheets, etc., as well as the most fought over amenity, the full body massage chair (kids liked even better than Netflix)! They did, however, enjoy the big screen, high definition TV and with 3D glasses. Who can’t watch Avatar over and over again in 3-D? Ryan was more than accommodating to ensure our visit was the most enjoyable ever. He was also great with providing recommendations for a number of places to visit and restaurant suggestions. We definitely will return for a visit (without the grandkids)!

“Great Place”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2013

We loved this place and would love to stay again. We stayed for two weeks! The location was great. Not too touristy. Great location right on the beach. Plus they had all of the beach accessories that we needed including beach chairs, towels, snorkels, and boogie boards and a surf board. The house was incredibly clean and up to date, just wish there was a second full bath. Awesome kitchen as well. Cant wait to get back. Thanks Ryan!

“Paradise Found!”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2013

My husband, daughter, boyfriend and myself just returned from spending 8 glorious days at this unit. From booking the reservation to checking out, Ryan (the owner) was extremely prompt in returning emails, answering questions and making sure we were informed about our stay. Upon stepping into the unit, we were thrilled to see that the photos on the website are exactly what the unit looks like. The view is direct oceanfront, literally 10 feet to the seawall and the ocean beyond. The condo itself is updated and has a very nice kitchen, bath and 1/2 bath, nice tile floors and great outdoor furniture on the lanai. The bedrooms are at the back of the house, but we could distinctly hear the waves crashing all night long; very relaxing way to fall asleep. The little extras like boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, umbrella, towels, cooler, etc. all helped to make beach days easy and affordable. The purified water system allowed us to refill our water containers each day and save money by not having to purchase bottled water. We spent most nights at the condo cooking dinner and watching the sunset. We also watched movies and listened to music on Ryan's awesome T.V. and sound system. The condo is tasteful, updated and comfortable - perfect for 4 people. With the 1/2 bath, there were 2 areas to get ready in which made having one shower doable. The location of this condo was perfect. We could go one direction and be in Napiili or the other and be in Kaanapali or Lahaina, all within 10-15 minutes. There are shops nearby within walking distance. My husband and I spent many mornings walking the beach walk located only a couple blocks from the condo. Maui Sands is an older complex and the pool, pool furniture and laundry facilities are quite outdated but the mature grounds and beautiful landscaping are awesome. Overall, this condo was exactly as described and in a perfect location. We'd love to rent it again in the future and I highly recommend this gem in Maui.

“Fantastic stay at Maui Sands”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2013

We were so pleased in every way! The condo was so well stocked with all we might need. Loved the terrific snorkels and masks, the great stash of spices (dried and fresh), towels, soaps, cutlery, any and all cooking utensils, the "Best Of" guides. And your remodel/updating was really nice. So comfortable. We can't thank you enough for opening up your vacation home for us to enjoy. So much so that it's possibly planted the seed of us looking for a place in Maui Sands of our own! Merely a wish at this point. The boys are ready to make it an annual trek. Our nine year old has even offered to save his allowance ($3 a week) to help make it happen. It's the thought that counts. Mahalo many times over!

“Great place and Ryan (the owner) was super helpful!”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2012

We enjoyed our stay here from 11/25/12-12/2/12. The condo has been beautifully redone- it's probably the nicest one at Maui Sands! We loved being on the ground level and having the ocean right outside of the back door. Having a little grass area and outdoor seating/eating area right in our own "backyard" was great too- our boys had lots of fun playing on the grass as we ate breakfast or dinner. The kitchen was well stalked. Having cable and a DVR/Tivo system was really nice too to just relax and watch a show or to be able to put on a favorite show for the kiddos when they were ready for a break from the sun. The fruit basket that welcomed us was a very pleasant surprise. Everything was pleasant! There are grocery stores, restaurants, a farmer's market and a few small shopping centers all within walking distance. The beach walk starts a few blocks down the road and provides nice scenery right on the beach for a couple of miles. There's a sandy beach with a park, playground and swings about 1 block away- we loved that! The condo is centrally located with Napili about 5 minutes in one direction and Lahaina about 5-8 minutes in the other direction.

“Maui Sands, 4B”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2012

My family and I were staying at Maui Sands, Unit 4B, for 5 nights from 8/18/12 to 8/23/12. We had a wonderful stay at this property and definitely would recommend this property to our family and friends. The owner is very helpful and professional; he also cares deeply about the environment. The description of this unit on Vrbo website is very accurate. Maui Sands is a two-story building and this unit is on the ground level with two bedrooms and 1.5 bath. This condo is clean and modern yet charming. It's fully furnished with the best equipments especially the entertainment center. My college age children think the condo is very cool and one of the kinds. We really enjoyed the ocean front and view from the lanai. Personally, I felt relaxing and peaceful when looking out to the ocean every morning and when returning to the condo in the evening to watch the amazing sunset. We have been to Maui three times; by far, this was the best trip. It's because our children are older now but also because this condo was so comfortable. Ryan, thank you for providing a wonderful place for our vacation and hopefully it'll still be the same for our next visit.
