Oceanfront Condo with Ocean and Mountain Views on Beautiful Ma`alaea Bay
Please review the property description and pictures carefully prior to booking, and call/email if you have any questions. We want to ensure you have a wonderful experience with us.

Welcome to Island Sands Unit 401, an oceanfront community that sits on the waterfront away from the road. Spectacular ocean, island, and Haleakala views!

Lynn owns this fourth floor 675 sq. ft. condo that provides peaceful ocean viewing and full views of the West Maui Mountains, Molokini Crater, and the islands of Kaho'olawe and Lana'i.  From the pool and common grounds, you can see Haleakala. 

This unit includes a window air conditioner in the living room and two ceiling fans, FREE high speed 5G (400 Mbps) Wi-Fi Internet access for your laptop and other devices.  This unit is a spacious, bright, and beautifully decorated beach-style home. The kitchen is newly renovated and fully stocked with a  dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave, full-size fridge, and washer/dryer. This home includes a telephone for free calls to USA and Canada and free local cable TV channels.

Everything you need for your Maui vacation is included: linens, bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, dishes, cutlery, cooking utensils, and much more!

There is a vintage art collection featuring Hawaiian artists and a library stocked with books on Hawaiian history. The master bedroom has a King size bed for your sleeping comfort and *FULL* size sofa bed in the living room. This home is a wonderful value and comfortably sleeps, 3 adults. There is an extra charge per night for the third guest.

The complex has an oceanfront swimming pool with lounge chairs for sunbathing. Enjoy dining and cooking your meals outdoors. There are propane BBQ grills, tables, and chairs for your convenience.

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

Ma`alaea Bay is where the whales play and have their babies. Humpback whales can be seen in abundance from your lanai from November through April. 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.

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

Less than a mile walk along the sidewalk, head north to the shops and restaurants at Ma'alaea Harbor. The harbor amenities include snorkel and tour boats to Molokini Crater and sunset dinner cruises. Experience family fun at the Pacific Whale Foundation, Maui Ocean Center, Maui Golf, and Sports Park with miniature golf, trampoline, rock climbing, and bumper boats.

This condo complex is centrally located to many popular island destinations. By car, approximately 20 minutes to Lahaina, Wailea, and to OGG airport. Another 25 minutes to Pa'ia and Makawao town. Kealia National Wildlife Refuge and the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is a short drive away approximately a 5-10 minute drive. There is a Maui Bus stop at Ma`alaea Village, from here you can take the public bus system to almost anywhere on the island.

Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay August 2023 
"IS401 was perfect with ocean and mountain views. It was well stocked in the kitchen from dishes to spices. The people are friendly, and the complex is quiet. You can watch the turtles all day long and never get tired of it. If you're lucky, you may see one resting on the little beach, but please don't disturb. We have stayed at this complex several times and will definitely be back. Thank you Lynn for a great vacation!!" -Sherri M. - (Aug 2023 - VRBO)

Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay May 2023 
"We loved our stay at 401 Island Sands!! It was a perfect location away from the little amount of hustle on Maui. Such a great central location to most things and a wonderful little home to come back to every night. We loved the open air throughout the condo so much! I was a little worried about the 1 window unit but we didn't even need to turn it on. 
Mahalo Kathy and Lynn for everything!" 
-Abby C. - (May 2023 - VRBO)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay April 2023 
"Great space with clear view of the water. Felt right at home when I walked in and opened the sliding doors to let in the ocean breeze. The only down side to the location is that is one the flight path of the airport so you will hear some airplanes from time to time." 
-Bill H. - (Apr 2023 - AirBnB)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay March 2023 
"It was great. Whales jumping right in front of our balcony. Location wise it's little bit on the side but close to everything." -Lucas K. - (Apr 2023 - VRBO)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay March 2023 
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Central location. Beautiful view. Condo had everything we needed. We did day trips around the island and it was a great location to come home too!" 
-Lesley G. - (Mar 2023 - VRBO)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay February 2023 
"We spent 8 glorious nights here and they had everything you could possibly need. The location was fantastic and away from the hustle and Bussel. We were able to watch whales from the Lani anytime we were out there. Short drive to the harbor for whale watching/snorkeling/sunset cruises. Lahaina and Kihei were a short drive. The beach takes a short walk to access but they have parking there if you don't want the 10 minute walk. Ocean center was next to the harbor. We were sad to leave this little piece of heaven but will be back." 
-Lori H. - (Feb 2023 - VRBO)

Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay October 2022 
"Our stay was wonderful! The condo had everything we needed and more than expected for our week! The location was great as we had activities planned all over the island! It was also a more quiet area compared to the Lahaina, Kaanapali or Wailea areas. Definitely would recommend!"

Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay October 2022 
"Thank you for such a wonderful condo! You provided all that we needed and more! It was such a quiet, cozy, and relaxing place to stay during our honeymoon. A few five star recommendations: 
1. Blue Hawaiian Helictopter Tours. AMAZING views from the sky! We did the West Maui waterfalls tours. 
2. Old Lahaina Lu'au. Great food, drinks and overall experience. 
3. Sail Maui sunset sail out of Lahaina. Great food, drinks, apps and incredible views. 
4. Skyline Hawaii 8-Line Zip Line. Awesome tour guides out of Ka'anapali, small group (10). 
5. Road to Hana. Recommend all day trip to make all stops that you want. Twin Falls, Halfway to Hana (banana bread, BBQ, sandwiches). Pua'a Ka'a Wayside Park (roadside waterfall), Honokalani Beach (black sand beach), Haleakala National Park. 
For a quiet, calm beach, Kama'aole III. 
For a large beach/big waves, Makena Beach (Big Beach). 
For nicer beach, Ka'anapali Beach." 
A few favorite restaurants: 
Down the Hatch, Front St Lahaina 
Coconuts Fish Cafe 
Earth Aloha Eats food truck 
Java Cafe Kihei 
Southshore Grindz 
Maui Brewing Co. 
Lahaina Pizza Co. (Front St) 
We enjoyed every minute here in Maui! It was our first trip, but not our last. We'd definitely recommend your condo to family and friends, mahalo!"

Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay November 2022 
"Greetings from a couple of Canadians! 
Thank you so much for your lovely condo to stay in during our 22 year anniversary. We were supposed to come in September 2020 - but we all know what happened there! 
The hightlights we want to share: 
-We attended an outdoor church service with Maui Christian Church on Sunday at Kam III beach in Kihei. Small group, fantastic lesson. Strongly recommend. 
-Road to Hana - if you have a rental car only go the North side because the South side road is gravel at times. Stop at "Halfway to Hana" - lovely food shack with awesome locals. 
-Royal Lahaina Lu'au - spectacular! The best view of sunset over the ocean! 
-Snorkeling tour - expensive but it's worth it. This was a bucket list item. I even saw a turtle which is another bucket list! 
-Hike Kapalua Coastal trail. Phenomenal views, rocky terrain, wear good shoes. I loved this one. 
-Loads of wonderful beaches - the one at the end of the street is great to walk for miles! Makena Beach just part of Wailea is fantastic! 
Eat local fruit like pineapple, mangos, and some roadside stands will cut it for you. 
Thanks again, we enjoyed the mornings on the balcony, and later in the day, the pool. Met loads of lovely people there, mahalo!" 
-The Sullivans - (Oct 2022 - Referral)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay October 2022 
"Thank you so much for letting us stay in your place. One of the coziest we have rented, where you feel like home, with everything you need and more! Books, decoration, all the comfort and even a hair straightener! We also really liked the area, quiet, sunny, friendly people at the beach and pool. We will come again!  
Recommend: Coconut Fish Market, Pacific Whale Foundation (snorekling) just down the road!, Ekolu Kitchen (and great cocktails!)" 
-Sandra and Bastien N. - (Oct 2022 - Referral)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay September 2022 
"Mahalo, such a lovely condo and the location is the best. Very clean and I appreciate that.  
1. l We did the Jungle Zip Line tour - totally fun and very safe and most of all it was very exciting. The jungle is beautiful.  
2. We did the snorkel tour to Lanai but the surf was too rough so we went to a fish preserve above the Kapalua area and then got to go to a second snorkel spot. Lots of fish and turtles. The food was excellent and plentiful. The crew was outstanding. 
3. We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary on the 24th. We had an absolutely stellar dinner @ Hotel Wailea. So awesome and delicious. Again, thank you mahalo." 
-Tony and Julie E. - (Sep 2022 - Referral)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay June 2022 
"Wonderful stay and great amenities. It's very quiet so the sounds of the ocean waves, wind through the palm trees, and the birds will lull you. The view was breathtaking. It was very windy during our stay, so plan to bring caps/hats just in case." 
-Kathy M. - (Jul 2022 - AirBnB)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay March 2022 
"My wife and I stayed here in March of 2022 for our anniversary and absolutely loved it. Very friendly property manager and easy check-in/out process. Great balcony view and a perfect location on Maui. We will be staying here again for sure! Highly recommend :)" 
-Adam N. - (Apr 2022 - VRBO)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay March 2022 
"One of the nicest condos in Maalaea." 
-Russell B. - (Mar 2022 - AirBnB)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay December 2021 
"If you want to get away from the hubub of the resorts and and business of certain parts of maui, this is the perfect getaway. The location is central as it's about 15 to 20 minutes away from everything on the island for the most part. This is the way to do it." 
-Sean J. - (Jan 2022 - AirBnB)


Island Sands 401 - Guest Stay October 2021 
We have been to Maui 2 x year for the past 6 years (pre covid!) and really like the island. Maalaea is so central it is hard NOT to stay there! The support from Maui Vision has been top notch as well as from Windy the onsite individual. She was very responsive the few times we had to contact her. Thank you for the help and we had a great time! We plan to be back in April 2022. -Gordon F. - (Oct 2021 - MauiVision)
