Beautiful 2 bedroom, 1 bath, Direct Oceanfront Condominium. This unit is as close to the spectacular Maui ocean as you can get!

From December through April, enjoy a perfect vantage point from the Lanai for viewing the arrival of the humpback whales making their way between Maui and Molokai in the Pailolo Channel. Other times, watch the spinner dolphins dance by and the tropical fish dart about in the reef and our "daily" green sea turtles as they pop their heads up while they travel along the reef.

If Paka’a (Hawaiian god of the wind) decides to take a day off, we have provided a mini-split air conditioning system for the living area plus each of the two bedrooms. Use them as you need but please enjoy the beautiful Hawaiian tradewinds when he is on duty!

With the expansive sliding glass door open, the extra wide living room/dining is an extension of the 24 foot wide Lanai where you can enjoy the enticing views and the beautiful sounds of the ocean waves that are music to the ears. View the most spectacular sunsets Maui has to offer right from the Lanai. Lanai is furnished with a lounge chair, 4 chairs and table.

Decorated in Hawaiian-style with lots of rattan, the colors of the room reflect the surroundings of sea and sand. Original art, a sofa, matching chair with ottoman, along with accompanying tables and lamps provide comfort and convenience. In addition, cable TV and free wifi are available to enjoy after spending a day exploring the nearby attractions or more of the island of Maui.

The two bedrooms can comfortably sleep 4 guests, one with a king size bed and the other with a queen size bed. Both beds are fitted with memory foam mattresses. The "king" bedroom also includes its own cable TV.

At the Maui Sands condo, you can dine inside at the kitchen counter, at the dining table for four inside or on the Lanai - each with views of the ocean and sunsets. Dining oceanfront on the Lanai is a treat where you can enjoy a dinner with a spectacular sunset directly in front of you.

The kitchen of this condo at the Maui Sands is provided with beautiful oak cabinetry. The granite countertops provide an elegant backdrop while you relax at the bar stools and enjoy pupus and perhaps a Mai Tai. The kitchen is fully-stocked with the appliances, utensils, and cookware needed to prepare your meal for and includes new appliances, a range, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, rice maker and blender.

Enjoy you own meals with beautiful dishes and glassware. Bright, natural lighting provides ideal illumination for meal preparation and, of course, since the kitchen is open to the living room and dining room, there are the ever present sounds and beauty of the Pacific Ocean.

We had a great time at this condo. It was clean and had all the things we needed to have a great vacation. The lanai was perfect for eating breakfast or just lounging during the day. Access to the beach was very convenient. We loved being able to just go down to ocean anytime and swim. The condo had dishes, pots and pans, and tons of appliances to make meals. It was stocked with spices and condiments as well. There were beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards you can use. Overall we had a great time here and would definitely come back again!

A wonderful comfortable condo with a water front lanai, literally ten feet from the ocean. Convenient grocery stores and good restaurants steps away! We had an awesome vacation! Thank you Laura for letting us stay in your beautiful condo!

Laura's place is a masterclass in VRBOs. Yes, the view is that stunning, and way more. Yes, the roar of the ocean is right outside the lanai, and we waded and snorkeled every day. There are mango and banana trees right outside the apartment, and the uncrowded complex in general is ideally located right across the street from an incredible fish market and only 10 minutes from Lahaina Town. But also, we've stayed at a lot of VRBOs, and the thoughtfulness put into every detail is next level. The gift of chocolates and coffee; the supplies in the kitchen; the QR code for the wifi; the complete stock of beach toys and snorkeling gear; all the towels; the stock of toiletries including coral-safe sunblock; the multiple guides to Maui; the outlets just where you need them; the ease of check-in and communication: WOW. Thank you, Laura!

Great visit! We spent two weeks here and of course loved it. The spectacular views and breath taking sunsets speek for themselves! There is much more that sets this unit apart from the others. This was our third time staying in this building.. but first time in "4E" The new AC.... in unit laundry... and fully stocked activity closet add to a great stay. Property manager was great, super helpfull but not intrusive. She went above and beyond to help our family out of a pinch!!! This one is a gem! See you next year!!!!

Listening to waves and watching whales, boats and turtles was very enjoyable from the lanai. All amenities of home to cook your own meals. Things also to enjoy the outdoors, such as chairs, coolers, beach towels and boogie boards. Excellent home away from home!!

Although the building is older, the condo is well equipped. The location for watching whales was amazing. Condo has a pair of binoculars for use. We saw so many whales it was incredible. 2 bedrooms was a plus so we could put our extra supplies in the second bedroom. Bathroom is small but functional. Washer and Dryer was a great plus ( you could hear when to put the clothes in the dryer from the lanai) Kitchen was well equipped to cook what you wanted to cook. The grocery store at the end of the road is just as good as the Safeway that is a farther drive. Outside of the Grocery store doesn't look promising but it is clean. Extra positive- we had an issue at the beginning of our stay and the owner reached out to the neighbors who came over within 15 minutes and they went out of their way to resolve the problem. Trade winds cool the condo off very quickly and the windows were easy to figure out to do this. Communication with owner was prompt and courteous. Negative- we got there at 4 and the cleaning person was still cleaning the condo. Not fault of owner but the cleaning person was very cordial and finished up quickly. The amazing view lanai had indoor outdoor carpet that got wet very quickly when it rained, we had to wear sandals out there at times and had to take extra care not to get the rug in the livingroom wet. I would suggest a rubber mat or something for rug protection.

We had a nice stay in Maui in this unit. The whales were the highlight and we greatly appreciated the binoculars provided. The chairs, snorkel gear, towels, etc. made for a great beach day. The only downside was the a/c unit. It does an ok job of cooling the living room, but struggles to cool down the back bedrooms. The first day we got there the shades had not been drawn on the patio, so it was hard to cool that evening since it had gotten so hot that day. The neighboring children would run up and down the hallways in the mornings which was uncontrollable, but worth noting if you are a light sleeper. Thank you for the welcome treats of coffee, chocolate and a pineapple.

Everything about this place is great. It's well stocked, well furnished, great view, great location, and has a lot of space. We had 3 families in 3 units for this trip and everyone was jealous of this unit.

Great location on Maui! The home is equipped with everything you need from kitchen to beach. The view could not be better! We enjoyed the shady mornings and the beautiful sunsets on the lanai. We even saw whales and sea turtles. Laura was a great host reaching out when there was unusual weather to share information and remind us of the board games. We loved staying here and would love to return in the future!

December 2022
Overall a very smooth and efficient process. Location of this property is fantastic, close to the beach, restaurants and excursions. Property is amazing with outstanding ocean views 24-7.

We were super pleased with the 2BD / 2BA condo. The communication with the owner was easy and we received all information in a timely manner before our arrival so we knew exactly what to expect. The condo was wonderful, clean, and had an amazing ocean front view. We would highly recommend this property for your next vacation...we would absolutely book this spot again.

We so enjoyed our anniversary celebration at Laura’s condo. The location is right on the sea. The ever present sound of the surf was awesome! Always a beautiful breeze and great view of Molokai. We even saw a green turtle swimming right in the water in-front of the rental. We found everything we needed and even were greeted with coffee and chocolate…..a sweet welcome.🍍

Fabulous location, as close as you can get to the water. Well-appointed kitchen made cooking a breeze. AC is a window unit in the main living space and doesn’t quite keep the bedrooms cool but there are multiple fans available for use. Closet full of snorkel gear, beach toys, grass mats and beach chairs. Pool/beach towels also provided. Complex was clean and quiet. Would definitely stay again.

I loved waking up and going to sleep to the sights and sounds of the ocean. The condo and the hostess, Lauren, was lovely. Definitely recommend.

As four retired educators seeking to share a travel adventure together, this property provided a wonderful “home base.” We loved watching the amazing sunsets from the lanai each evening and hearing and watching the ocean waves as they hit the sea wall below. The place was clean and comfortable. It was a perfect place to celebrate 120 years (collectively) of teaching!

This was our first vrbo experience and it was great. The condo has a beautiful view of the ocean and we saw turtles and dolphins out in the water. The condo was close to a collection of places to go supply shopping and a food truck park (that we ate dinner at a couple of times). It was off the beaten tourist path enough that I never felt like we where at a resort so it was a nice change of pace vs some of the other places we had looked at or had stayed at before. The host was responsive to questions and everything was setup correctly and the info sheet was correct.

The pictures do not do justice, it was BETTER than it looked. The home was larger than we thought it would be and was very comfortable. The beach is literally steps away as described, but I didn't expect much sandy beach. When the tide is low in the early morning and evening, there is a lovely stretch of sandy beach to sit in the chairs or take a stroll. The snorkeling was fantastic as described and lots of reef to explore with tropical fish and turtles. Worth every penny and next time we come we will book here.

We have stayed in Maui several times, but this was the most amazing location we have stayed! - Laura was an amazing host and the place was exactly as explained and more! Was our "home away from home" for 10 days and will definately come back to stay again soon! Stocked kitchen just like mine at home! - Thank you Laura for the special touches at our arrival with fresh fruit etc. - it was very appreciated! We WILL be back!

We had an amazing time! Rental was nicely stocked with pretty much everything you have access to at home. 2 beach chairs and 2 mats to lay on. Blow dryer, straightener, even shampoo and conditioner! We had the best time! Highly recommend!!

The view from the balcony makes it all worthwhile! Besides the gorgeous view of the ocean, the unit is tastefully decorated and stocked with a good variety of beach toys. We saw turtles! They swam by us as we snorkeled in the ocean right in front of the unit! Laura is very communicative and quickly answered all our questions. A convenience store, and several other shops are easily within walking distance as well as food trucks. Time flew by too quickly in our Hawaiian paradise!

Our family of four (including boys ages 9 and 7) loved our week-long stay! We very much enjoyed the waterfront location (including seeing several straggler whales from the balcony with the thoughtful set of provided binoculars) and its proximity to great beaches along that section of the Maui coastline. It's also across the street from some awesome fresh poke (The Fish Market) and not far at all from some other terrific restaurants in Lahaina. The communication with Laura was consistently quick and helpful and check-in and check-out were a breeze. Highly recommended, especially for families with younger kids!

We needed a 2 bedroom unit as we are hosting an exchange student, the price point was reasonable. All in all, it was a good unit, kitchen well stocked, boogie boards, beach chairs, and umbrella for beach days. If you're looking for a quiet getaway with a more private vibe, this is the place for you. The whale watching from the lanai was incredible, my first time seeing whales!!!

Our family loved the property and had a wonderful stay. It was clean, well-stocked, and exactly as described: right on the beach with an amazing 2nd floor view of the ocean and Molokai (we saw whales from the lanai almost every day). Check-in was very easy and we found our parking spot without any trouble, even though we arrived after dark. We appreciated the special touches like chocolates and a fresh pineapple on the kitchen counter. Laura was extremely accommodating, working with us on a late departure when our flight was pushed back. One thing to be aware of: the louvered windows are typical for Hawaiian homes and provide great ventilation to keep the place cool, but they don't completely seal out sounds when closed. Ocean waves can be loud if you're not used to them, and a couple times we overheard neighbors nearby having late-evening conversations after we went to bed. Location is excellent with shops and restaurants within walking distance, and the main touristy and resort areas in Lahaina just a few minutes drive. A convenience store and full grocery store are both nearby. During our stay there was even a food truck court just a couple blocks away for fun outdoor meals in the evenings. We would definitely recommend staying here if you're planning a trip to Maui. We loved it!

What is not to love? The condo is right on the ocean. The sound of the waves crashing is the best therapy in the world. There is more than enough space for 2-4. It is fully equipped (including strong wifi) and close to amazing beaches, hikes, and restaurants. My husband and I stayed two weeks in Laura's place during January. We can't wait to come back. Thank you, Laura!

Great condo, location, views, and host, would definitely stay again! Had everything we needed for cooking but most of the time ate out. Food trucks a short walk away were tasty and convenient. Beds were comfortable. As another reviewer mentioned, the bedrooms, particularly one, get a bit warm over the course of the day, but the ceiling and floor fans in the unit definitely helped cool off at night. Great for unit for families, kids were able to explore/snorkel directly out front of the condo which they did frequently while we enjoyed the views from the balcony above, did I mentioned the views are amazing! Getting to and accessing the condo was easy with great communication from Laura. Overall wouldn't ask for anything else, had a great time, and would definitely stay again.

We loved Laura's condo, it was clean and very well appointed with things one needs to enjoy Hawaii including snorkel and other water gear, chairs, cooler, etc. The kitchen was likewise well equipped with just about everything you'd need. In-unit laundry was also welcome. Of course, the best feature was the view and immediate access to the water. Spectacular sunsets!

First time to Hawaii and we found PARADISE! It would be hard to believe a better view exists anywhere on the island than off this lanai. You won’t believe it, I promise. If you like a more personal experience you will absolutely love the area. With an ABC next door you are set. I would suggest a car but it’s not necessary. Laura’s house was beautifully furnished with a nice inviting Hawaiian style. Literally had all of the amenities from snorkeling to bodyboarding even having extra aqua socks. Full kitchen and laundry make this unit extremely comfortable just like home. I can’t state enough how much we fell in love with Maui and its mahalo way of life. If Laura will have us, we hope to back very soon and maybe one day forever. Mahalo 🤙🌈

We had a great stay. Wonderful location, you can't beat the view. The place is clean, comfortable, and well equipped. There's a closet of beach supplies, which we used, beach towels, lots of kitchen supplies. There's an a/c unit in the main room and ceiling fans in every room. We didn't use the a/c at all, as we preferred the breezes and the sound of the ocean. You definitely get good cross breezes in the main room. Laura was a great host, responded to all questions quickly. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. Best part was having coffee in the morning on the lanai and cocktails in the evening on the lanai. Gorgeous sunsets every night. This doesn't have anything to do with the condo, but be prepared to plan your dinners in advance because the restaurants are overwhelmed. Can't get in anywhere without reservations (which we knew prior to traveling) but take out was also a challenge. Many of the restaurants were too overwhelmed to handle take out so it was very hit or miss. Most nights, we ended up at the food trucks down the street, or the fish market across the street because we were unable to get through to order take out from other restaurants. Best to order take out as early as possible! Thank you Laura for a wonderful stay!

The condo was perfect for our family of (5). It was comfy, clean, and very roomy. This is our second time staying here and we wouldn’t stay anywhere else. Also, the extras (chairs, cooler, boogie boards) are an added plus. Laura is the best host as well. Easy to communicate and response quickly.

We had a wonderful eight day stay at the condo. The beach views and the beach breezes are amazing. A great spot for a family where there’s easy snorkeling and swimming right off the property. Plenty of markets and restaurants nearby. So if you didn’t have a rental car there’s plenty of places to walk to. The kitchen was fully stocked and it was so convenient to have a washer and dryer inside the condo. The owner was very responsive to our texts during our stay. I would 100% book this co do again!

This vacation condo is fantastic! The condo is updated and very well taken care of. It is a second floor two bedroom oceanfront unit with incredible sunset views. It is neat to watch the sun set between the islands of Molokai and Lanai. The condo is an end unit, so it is possible to open the front and side windows and get a nice cross breeze. The condo was fully stocked with extra towels, pool and beach toys, a cooler to take on the road to Hana, and all the cooking utensils we needed. We loved having a nice washer and dryer in the unit because it allowed us to pack light, and we loved the friendly atmosphere of the complex. The unit itself is updated and well kept, and it was nice to be able to walk down to the beach and snorkel in full view of the condo. The pool is nice and never crowded, and was a nice break from the crowded Kaanapali resort pools 3 blocks away that we have previously stayed at. We loved walking a block down to the wonderful food trucks with all sorts of different cuisine choices. We also loved having a dedicated parking space so close to the unit, making it easy to come and go. The owner was nice and easy to communicate with. We will definitely stay here again!

We planned to stay near our friends who had a timeshare at the Westin…wow! Were we in for a treat; clean ocean front property, with unparalleled sunsets and views! We made sure to set a timer to return to the condo every evening to catch the amazing sunsets. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed, the beach closet is equipped w/ snorkels, beach chairs, boogie board and water shoes! Felt like we hit the jackpot with this booking! This will be our goto every time!

My family and I stayed here for a week in June (3 adults, 3 children ages 3, 6, 9) and it was fantastic. We spent the prior week on South Maui and this was the perfect place to spend our second week in West Maui. On very first glance, the property looked dated. But that was soon forgotten when we opened up all the windows, turned on the Hawaiian music on the Sonos speaker, and made ourselves at home. We were completely in love with the oceanfront location and view. The kids enjoyed early mornings on the beach at low tide looking for treasures and snorkeling in calm water. We could easily walk to the beach park just north of Maui Sands. Great take-out options (and the token ABC store- actually they had shockingly good food!) within just a few blocks to walk to. We enjoyed more than our fair share of Mac salad! A closet full of all the beach gear we needed for the kids (chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, mats, fins) was convenient and appreciated. Amazing beaches located within just a few minutes drive. We used the grill at the pool area for several dinners. The grounds are lush and immaculate. Yes, the complex is dated (as many on the island are) but it seems many unit (this one included) have been comfortably and stylishly updated. The complex was really quiet- no huge loud resort vibes here! Crossed paths with a few families and residents and everyone was kind. Laura was very responsive and helpful for the few questions that came up while we were there. We were worried about having 6 inside the 2br/1ba but it was totally fine- we spent a lot of time on the large oceanfront patio when inside the unit. We will absolutely book here again. You’ll love it!

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
