Charming, third floor, non-smoking apartment with panoramic view from kitchen, living room and balcony. Tasteful decor and tile floors create a pleasant and warm home, with brand new kitchen cabinets and granite counters. You can watch whales during winter from the private balcony and enjoy the incredible view of the protected bay and neighboring islands all year round. People who have stayed here have come back over and over again.

Maalaea is central to the island's many attractions. 20 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes to Lahaina, Kahului and the North Shore with it's many windsurfing locations. Shopping is about 20 minutes by car and restaurants are in 5 minutes walking distance. 5 minutes walk in one direction brings you to Maalea's yacht harbor with a small shopping mall and the well known Maui Ocean Center (Aquarium). 5 minutes walk the other direction will bring you to a 2 mile long sandy beach.

Comments from previous guests:

We have enjoyed our two week stay in your lovely suite immensely. The view has provided endless hours of entertainment watching all the whale activity and the daily parade of turtles passing us by. We hope to return next year for a longer stay.

Your condo is beautiful. The lanai overlooking the ocean is just what the doctor ordered. Relaxing to the sound of the waves or watching a million stars at night. Truely this is a piece of heaven on earth. Thank you for an enjoyable stay!
C. and J. K., Michigan,

It is very peaceful here away from the crowds but close enough to shop and see some of the exquisit things on the island. We hope we can return another time. Again, thanks for making our stay a pleasure.

The soothing sounds of the ocean soon relaxed us into a comfortable, easy life-style. Ten days of rest and sun. The condo was wonderful! The view, both day and night was wonderful as well. The lights in 'Up Country', and across the bay, gave sparkle that was a close second only to the stars above.
Thank you for sharing, V. and S. A., Texas

The perfect winter respite! So much to do and see on this beautiful island but the simple things are still the best - gorgeous sunrises, sounds of the surf, long walks on the beach, whale watching from the lanai, warm golden days, star-studded nights, and even a full moon shimmering all the way across Maalea Bay. Knowing that we were missing Portland's third ice storm this winter made us appreciate our stay here even more.

Property was very clean and has great location, excellent views, closed to everything. We enjoyed to watch sun rise every morning, listening the amazing waves, it was speachless. Checking in and checking out was so simple, very fast. Property had everything we needed. We will definitely looking forward to revisit.

We had an amazing time at your Island sands condo. We’ve stayed in the Maaelea area several times and this condo has one of the BEST views. We watched the sunrise every morning and watched whales jumping right in front of the condo (binoculars will give you an up close view). There we’re large turtles sunbathing on the little beach in front of the complex. The condo is small, but just right for 2 people. It was very windy when we were there and a lot of noise came through the bedroom slatted windows. The window probably needs to be re-sealed and we hung a sheet over the window to block out the hallway light. It would have been nice if there was a sun umbrella as we had to rent one. Thank you for such a lovely stay!

This condo unit is perfectly located: 30 minutes to Lahaina, 15-20 minutes to Kihei, and 15-20 to Kahalui. The condo’s balcony view has an amazing ocean view, perfect for enjoying a breakfast sunrise or a sunset dinner. The condo is clean and the resident manager is friendly. Definitely recommend.

We were able to watch whales across the bay as we sipped our morning coffee. Could not be happier with the view. Be prepared for high winds in the corridors, but the balcony was sheltered. Only downside was that the sliding doors to the balcony and the bypass closet doors need some attention--very hard to open and close both.

Gorgeous view that included whales playing almost every day! We saw the southern cross almost every morning as well. The AC is noisy as were the jets overhead.

We’ve seen whales many times on several visits, but the week we were in MaAlea, watching from the balcony were some pretty impressive days lots of breeching & young calves. Area is quieter than Kihei, and harbor deli has most essentials. The property is clean, well maintained.

Centrally located on the Island, to airport, the charter cruise harbor that most boats leave from for Snorkeling tours ect. Within Walking distance, no need to pay for harbor parking. Condo was very comfortable and provided all needed supplies, Towels, beach chairs and small cooler. Wonderful views, relaxing Pool area. Bed was firm and very comfortable. Private parking spot was located in a great location to enter the building. Communication prior to arrival was wonderful all questions answered promptly. We highly recommend this location. We had heard that the bay was windy but not at all in our 9 day stay. Pool is not huge but never crowded and plenty of chairs to soak up all day sun. Sunrises are beautiful on the Lanai, turtles come to the small beach access. If you are a pizza lover we found the best spot, Johnny Heists is AMAZING also a short walk (Dine in)few other restaurants are all close. The Aquarium, Put-Put golf, Trampolines and a climbing wall also available for kids within walking distance. Convenience store, Gas and Carl's Jr hamburger for those last minute meals. Aloha have a great time!

This place was perfect for my husband and I to explore Maui for the first time. Maaleaa is centrally located and easy to manueuver. The king-sized bed was really comfortable. I loved getting to look out at the water from the living room and balcony.

We spent 5 nights at the apartment and it was perfect for us. Loved the balcony and the quiet area, away from the busier spots. I would definitely go back here!!!

It was overall a wonderful experience. Location of the property was great easily accessible to groceries, airport and tourist spots. The view from the balcony was epic. . Pretty much all amenities we need were provided. Our only complaint was there were a couple of towels that did not smell clean so have to wash them as soon as we arrived and there were pillows that smelled funky. Good that there were extra ones in the closet. I dont mind staying in the same unit if given a chance to go back to Maui.

Every dealing with Karin was perfect. Great communication. The facilities were great (swimming pool etc) and dealing with management was excellent. The unit was tired, but it was the least expensive I could find within the days we needed to be there. Very clean and many lovely extras supplied along with a well equipped kitchen. Plenty of towels too. Loved our holiday and met our needs .

Lovely condo with fully stocked appliances/kitchen cooking needs. Came with beach towels, beach chairs, and cooler. Fell asleep to the sound of waves each night. Centrally located for those wanting to explore all of Maui. It was everything we could have wanted. Beach access just a block away.

Unbelievable ocean view of Maalaea Bay and Haleakala! Couldn't be a better view on Maui. The property is clean, quiet, and beautifully landscaped. Excellent central location. Air conditioning is not needed with the refreshing trade winds. Maalaea Bay must be the #1 point for viewing Humpbacks, they were everywhere! Unit 310 is very nice and well taken care of. REALLY appreciated the comfortable living room couch. The king bed was excellent, we slept very well. Thanks for making our Maui stay a wonderful experience!

The condo was well equipped. Everything we could need in the kitchen, the bathroom had plenty of towel/ drying racks, and beach gear to take with us. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai watching the whales, seeing turtles and enjoying sunrise and sunsets. The owner was quick to respond to questions and was incredibly friendly. Would recommend to anyone. Mahalo!

The room was nice and clean. The view from the Lani was absolutely beautiful. We were able to see whales and turtles all day long. They were most active in the morning and evening. The sunrise was beautiful. Everyone we encountered at the complex were very friendly. There are a few places close by to eat. Would definitely stay here again.

Please update your towels, blankets and comforters. They are just too old, and it makes guests feel uncomfortable using them.

this property could be a grass hut and still be spectacular with the view it provides off the lanai !!! not saying the property is a grass hut. It has everything one needs to thoroughly enjoy your stay. But, the view says it all ! Wow !!!

This place was really nice and everything was just as expected and more. Everything that was set out was very thoughtful. Thank you for Karin for making our first Hawaii trip amazing! Couldn’t have asked for a better place to come home to at the end of the day.

Loved to condo and the location. Fully equipped right down to a cooler and chairs for the beach! The cross breeze was amazing, no need for the air conditioner, wish I could have bottled it up and taken it home! Loved watching the turtles from the Lanai, no shortage of turtle sightings!!
