Ocean Front Condo with Ocean and Mountain Views on Beautiful Ma`alaea Bay

or Reserve


 Reserved guests please make payment to owner direct using PayPal.

Welcome to Island Sands, an ocean front community that sits along the waterfront away from the road.  Spectacular ocean and mountain views! 

Lynn owns this fourth floor 675 sq. ft. condo provides peaceful ocean viewing and full views of the West Maui Mountains, Molokini Crater, Kahoolawe Island, and Lanai Island.  From the pool and common grounds you can see Mount Haleakalea.

This unit includes window A/C in the living room and two ceiling fans, FREE Wi-Fi Internet access for your laptop and other devices.  This unit is spacious, bright and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is newly renovated and fully stocked with dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave, full size fridge. Linens and towels are supplied; there is a washer/dryer inside the unit; a telephone for free calls to USA and Canada, and cable TV. There is a vintage art collection featuring Hawaiian artists and library stocked with books on Hawaiian history. The master bedroom has a King size bed for your sleeping comfort and full sofa bed in the living room. Beach chairs and beach towels are provided for your convenience. This home is a wonderful value and sleeps up to 3 people.

The complex has a lovely ocean front swimming pool with lounge chairs.  Enjoy dining outdoors and cook your meals outdoors.  There are several propane BBQ grills and outdoor tables and chairs.

This is a great central location particularly during the winter months. Ma`alaea Bay is where the whales play and have their babies.  Humpback whales can be seen in abundance from your lanai from December through April.

Heading south along the sidewalk and past a few condominium properties is Haycraft Park and Sugar Beach, the longest undeveloped beach on the island.  This is a great beach to swim, walk, jog, birdwatch and shell hunt for miles in peace away from the crowds. The beach goes on for a very long distance and eventually connects you to the community of Kihei.

A ten minute walk along the waterfront or the sidewalk takes you to the shops and restaurants at Ma'alaea Harbor. If there is a big south swell, the wave off the harbor, "Freight Trains," can be one of the best in the world attracting expert surfers.  From your lanai view surfers from around the world surfing the famous wave.

This condo complex is centrally located to many popular island destinations.  By car, you are twenty minutes to Lahaina, twenty minutes to Wailea and fifteen minutes to the airport. There is the Maui Bus stop at Ma`alaea Village, from here you can take the public bus system to almost anywhere on the island.

Ma'alaea Harbor amenities include snorkel and tour boats to Molokini and sunset dinner cruises. The Pacific Whale Foundation, the Maui Ocean Center, many shops and restaurants, and the Maui Golf and Sports Park with miniature golf, trampoline, rock climbing and bumper boats. 

Kealia National Wildlife Refuge and the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary are a short drive away.  

Island Sands is a quiet, friendly place with Aloha Friday.  Enjoy complimentary coffee and donuts 8:00-9:00 am.

Every Maui Vision property listed is a non-smoking home, this includes the lanai (balcony) and hallways.

Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay July 2018 
"This condo is so adorable. Hawaiian/beach vibes throughout. But the best part is the view. Ocean view out on the lanai. It is gorgeous. Thank you for the hospitality and we hope to stay again someday! Thank you so much for the last minute stay for my husband and I! You saved our honeymoon and we had the best time :) " Tailynn and Jared R. - (Aug 2018 - AirBnB)

Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay June 2018 
"This condo is AMAZING. We were left an adorable "Hawaiian" welcome bag upon our arrival and were able to check in early. The unit is SO clean which was very important to us. We ate breakfast every morning on the lanai- the views of the ocean from there are unbeatable. The unit is well stocked with towels, toilet paper, paper towels, cooking/eating tools, and beach supplies. We were so impressed with how many things were at our disposal. We loved the boogie boards, sand chairs and beach umbrella! The complex is family friendly and very quiet. It was the perfect place to stay for our anniversary. One thing- the living room has AC, but the bedroom does not. There is an overhead fan as well as a box fan in the closet. When you use both, it's very comfortable. I would recommend this unit over and over again. Thank you! We loved your place! It was the perfect place to spend our anniversary. Thank you so much! " - Sarah and Brandon H. - (Jun 2018 - AirBnB)

"This condo is appointed with everything you may need on vacation, and Kathy was quick to respond to special requests. It's a beautifully decorated space, true to the photographs on Airbnb, and was clean and comfortable when we arrived. Ma'alaea is also a wonderfully convenient place to stay between Kihei and Lahaina, as well as being near the airport, so it was easy to travel around the island from here. We would definitely stay at this location again. We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful space and the thoughtful gift bag you left for us on the first night. I will definitely be recommending this to friends who may visit Maui. Thanks again for a great experience!" - Ashely O. - (Jun 2018 - AirBnB)

Island Sands 401 - Guest stay March 2018 
"You will love the view of the ocean! Great location-centrally located between Lahaina and Kihei. Walking distance to the Maui Ocean Center! Immaculate condo with a great Maui beach vibe. Limited restaurants nearby but not a problem because kitchen is well stocked with all the necessary pots and pans to get you cooking (a real plus if you want to save money)! Loved having washer/dryer and wifi. This is a fantastic place to stay!!! Thank you so much for offering such a great place! We loved it! The condo was centrally located for where we wanted to be, super clean and we loved your thoughtfulness with the welcome basket. This was our first time using an airbnb and it was a fantastic experience!" - Jill B. - (Mar 2018 - VRBO)

Island Sands 401 - Guest stay November 2017 
A Hui Hou - We have stayed at many VRBOs (good and bad) and this condo gets on the A list. We really like Maalaea and are already making plans to come back again. This little town has its own vibe. It is not Kihei. It is not Lahaina. Beach Bums is great. We live in remote Alaska and spend winter's in Hawaii. This condo has the best lanai and fabulous view. Went to Iao Needle, but the path was closed. We understand it is now open. This spot is so beautiful and quiet and a historically significant place. - Gary and Judy L. - (Mar 2018)

Island Sands 401 - Guest stay December 2017 
Thank you. Mahalo for the wonderful accommodations! My husband and I really enjoyed your unit. Very clean and modern. I love all the little beach decors. This was our wedding anniversary. My husband and I were married in Oahu and have returned to the islands multiple times since our wedding in 2013. We love Maui and Oahu. We will return again. We have been coming here every year x2 since 2013. This is our 7th time. Amazing. We love Hawaii. Thank you for the lovely gift basket and card. The pineapple was so sweet we ate it the first day we arrived! Ha Ha! I will highly recommend this unit and Maui Vision Rentals to friends and family. Mele Kalikimaka. Mahalo!

Island Sands 401 - Guest stay Jan/Feb 2018 
We have had a marvelous stay in this location. Everything you could want or need for living is here in this condo. We appreciate all the great books you have on Maui, Hawaiian history and lore and other islands as well. The view is unbeatable! The location here on Hauoli Street is convenient to everything! Kihei, Lahaina, Kahului and beyond. Lynn, Thanks for the vintage Hawaiian Reyn Spooner clothing. It is nice to take an icon home. We can't say enough good things about staying in your condo. Mahalo nui loa! Love Sally and Pat K. - (Mar 2018)

Review #20958046 "Island Sands Unit 401 Ocean front ocean view! Quiet home listen to the sounds of the sea"  
Beautifully maintained property with stunning view  
We stayed for 3 weeks at Unit 401 and have since done nothing but brag to all our friends. The condo is beautiful and has everything you need for extended stays. Pretty remodeled kitchen with all cooking supplies, utensils, linens, soap for washer/dryer, dishwasher and probably the best king size bed we'd ever slept on. The lanai is to die for-very large with table and chairs and extra seating and the building is set so each unit has a full on ocean view, which is spectacular. The condo is much closer to the ocean than the picture shown. The building is very well taken care of and all the visitors and residents are extremely nice. We were lucky enough to meet the owner, who went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Free coffee and donuts on Friday, pool small but never crowded and best grills we have ever seen. 
We also loved this area. Maui grew a lot since 1998 and Kihei is just too much noise and action for us. You can drive there very quickly though and tour the lovely beaches, have lunch, get groceries and get out there back to the piece and quiet of Maalaea Bay. Located within walking distance of the Aquarium and boat harbor, it is a charming area all its own. Beach Bums Restaurant was our favorite place to eat and all the staff treats you like family. Make your fishing, scuba, dinner sails all right there--no driving involved--just a pretty walk to the boat in the morning or evening. Deli and scuba and merchandise shops next to Beach Bums. 
We will stay again--am missing that lanai right now. Thank you for turning your condo into a vacation rental, Lynn.

Island Sands 401 - Guest stay October 2017 
We stayed here for 2 1/2 weeks and we loved it! We have stayed in many vacation condos but none had all the touches that this condo does. It is beautifully decorated and there are so many "little" things that add so much to the "Aloha" feeling we had here. Than you for such a lovely time!

Island Sands 401 - April 2017 
"Lynn's place is awesome! From the moment we stepped in the condo and saw the welcoming note and gift basket, we knew we chose the right place to spend our honeymoon. The place is super clean, and the location is perfect! We had our own beach, which was a five minute walk away, and it was so peaceful. We saw turtles that came on to the shore to say hello, and plenty more hanging out in the shallow waters. The view from the condo balcony is so beautiful. Eating breakfast while watching the waves was a blast. This place was awesome and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great trip to Maui! Kathy and Lynn Thank you so much for the great place, we really appreciate it and we had a blast!" - Thomas and Courtney F. - (Apr 2017)

This condo is a great location and the view from the deck is amazing. 
We loved our stay at the Island Sands this March 2017. The condo is equipped with everything that you need. It was very quiet in the unit and there was such a nice breeze that would blow through every day and night. We never used air conditioning.The longest walking beach in Maui is just a few blocks down the shore. This beach is beautiful. There is a wildlife preserve along the beach so there aren't any buildings along that stretch of beach for miles. It is very peaceful for walking and hanging out. There are sea turtles everywhere there. We spent hours watching them swim and eat. Our location was pretty central to everything making it very convenient. We would recommend this condo and we would stay there again. Thank you Kathy for sharing this unit with us. Don and Marie
