Maui Oceanfront Condo w/Spectacular Views & Central Location


Property Details

Updated: May 23, 2015
Two Bedrooms, Two Full Baths with Sleeper Sofa, Sleeps 6

Discover the majesty of Maui from this 100% oceanfront condo in conveniently and centrally located Maalaea. This beautiful location is on the shores of Maalaea Bay, a whale sanctuary to the humpback whales, which travel to the warm waters of this pristine location to breed and give birth every year. Walking distance from the condo is the popular Maui Ocean Center & Aquarium with numerous restaurants and shopping options. Across from the Maui Ocean Center is the harbor where water activities are available for snorkeling, diving, sightseeing and dining adventures. The central location of our condo lies between two major tourist areas, just a 20 minute drive in either direction, to Wailea on one side and Lahaina/Kaanapali on the other. The airport is just a 12 minute drive. If it's adventure you want, the road to Hana is near our door step as well as the drive to Mt. Haleakala Volcano. Walk to the end of our street for 7 miles of white sand beach for great swimming & surfing

Location, Location, Location: The village of Maalaea sits adjacent to Maalaea Bay, first stop for the humpback whales on their way to Hawaiian waters every winter to breed and give birth. You can discover the wonders of Maalaea just as the whales have known instinctively for thousands of years! Our Island Sands Condo is located twelve minutes from the airport and centrally located between Kaanapali on the west shore and Wailea to the south. The condo is 100% oceanfront, just 80 feet to water's edge. The grounds are meticulously maintained and landscaped with pool, barbecue area and lots of lounging space. The unit has spectacular ocean views of Haleakala volcano, Molokini Island and endless ocean. The condo is equipped with air conditioning, a full kitchen, inside washer and dryer, cable TV with DVD, VCR, CD, AM/FM, free WiFi high speed internet cable connection, sofa with queen sleeper in living room and decorator furnishings. Both bedrooms have queen beds.

Activities Abound: Within a short walk is Maalaea Harbor with many ocean activities including snorkel trips, scuba diving, dinner cruises, whale watching and fishing expeditions. Several award winning restaurants are also in the harbor as well as retail shopping. Be sure not to miss the fabulous Maui Ocean Center, a world class aquarium which was voted 'Best Land Activity' in the Maui News. A short walk in the other direction takes you to the beginning of a seven mile stretch of white sand beach known as Sugar Beach which leads all the way to Kihei. Another favorite pastime is just relaxing on your own private oceanfront lanai at the condo watching the whales. You can also watch the boats leaving and returning to the harbor loaded with happy sightseers or gaze at the spectacular 10,000 foot rise of Haleakala volcano across the Bay. Evenings on the lanai have a sparkling view of the lights studding the 'up country' leading to the top of the volcano. If you are looking for paradise, this is it!

About the Owner

'Maui no ka oi' Maui is the best! My first trip to Maui was to attend a friends wedding 30 years ago and I have been coming back ever since. I enjoy actively managing my vacation rentals which brings me to Maui for extended stays several times a year.

Very clean and well appointed condo

  • 5 of 5
This condo has everything a vacationer would ever wish for.From a well appointed kitchen with all appliances,comfortable beds in large bedrooms,a lanai with uninterrupted oceanfront view ,we were fortunate to see whales and turtles every day, to items that you need while spending time on the beach.The communal areas(hallways,pool,etc.)are immaculately maintained,and the permanent residents of Island Sands make vacationers very welcome,an example would be the pot luck suppers held on Saturday nights by the pool.If you want to spend more time vacationing and less time driving then this central location is ideal,all major towns are only 15 mins away and the Maalaea harbor,ideal for ocean activities,and local businesses are only a 5 min walk.I had the occasion to require assistance from Gil and his local management company, I locked myself out of the room safe, and was treated in the most courteous and efficient manner.I will definitely return and would highly recommend this property.Ian McCreath,Stony Plain,Alberta.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
This place was exactly as advertised. It had everything! I can't say enough about the great location! The view from the lanai was spectacular. We saw sea turtles swimming in the shallow waves right outside every day. The condo was well-stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, boogie boards, and beach towels. It was clean and welcoming. It also had the basic cooking spices, pans, utensils, etc.-everything we needed. It had an air-conditioner in the living room that kept the place acceptably cool, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Getting to Maalaea from the airport was simple and fast. It was only a very short drive to Kihei from the condo, and Lahaina was close for surfing lessons for my sons! We booked the lessons at Outrageous Surf Shop, and they did an outstanding job! We also went to the Maui Ocean Center, which was only a block or two from the condo. We ate at Beach Bums BBQ and Grill several times, and the food was great! Booking the condo with Gil was easy, and he was quick to respond to inquiries. This condo made our vacation to Maui even more special, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Clean and quiet. Great location too.

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I stayed here for eight days and we loved it. The place is very clean, and surprisingly quiet. From the balcony, we would see turtles swim by every day. For me the biggest bonus of this condo is the location. Olowalu beach (14 mi marker) and coral gardens are a 10-15 minute drive away which makes for very convenient early morning snorkeling outings when you have the entire beaches to yourself.

Being centrally located it is still close to the airport and a reasonable distance from the volcano.

Highly recommended.

Outstanding Maui Rental Has IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented several properties from this owner, Gil and have nothing but praise for his maintenance and how up to date his properties are kept. This condo has an outstanding view from its' third floor vantage point of the whales. surfers, paddle boarders and more. The amenities are above and beyond . . . totally remodeled bathrooms and kitchen plus more than enough kitchen utensils, dishes etc to provide ample meals for a group. The site has barbecues, a lovely pool and provides a quiet and serene environment - perfect for a laid back tropical vacation however beaches, activities etc are but a short drive in either direction. All pictures of the condo and area are up to date and accurate. We would heartily recommend to anyone that this is a condo that fits all your needs at a very reasonable price for Maui with an ocean view unequalled in this area!!

The condo was beautiful and newly renovated! Plenty of room for ourselves and another couple and everything we needed. We enjoyed gorgeous views of sun rises and sets, sea turtles daily in AM and PM--on beach and in the water, Haleakala, and occasional surfers for entertainment, not to mention sleeping with the sound of waves and cool breezes. Made it easy to eat in for breakfast and grill dinner a few times, as you could not get a better view from a pricey restaurant (just service!) We stocked up with food / drink at Costco and Safeway when we first arrived before heading to the condo. Having the included cooler, sun umbrellas, and beach gear at the condo proved priceless for the burning sun on the beach. Would not have thought to bring some of that gear. It was also nice not to be in the crowd and traffic of the resorts and still have access to everything we needed. We enjoyed walking to the harbor for our snorkel cruise to Molokini, to eat out of few times, and also do some shopping, and were able to drive to other areas to explore when we wanted. Cocktails by the pool made a nice contrast after being in salt water snorkeling all day!
The luxury of having a washer and dryer was also appreciated. We were able to pack light and carry on our bags--another cost savings so we could spend it on the luau's, paddle boarding, cruises, cocktails, and shopping!
It was an AMAZING vacation--filled with encounters with SEA TURTLES, PORPOISES (when we were on paddle boards AND when we snorkeled!--unexpected to say the least!), colorful FISH ANYWHERE you chose to snorkel, whales, goats, cows, chickens along trails at times, beautiful colors, crystal waters, gorgeous hikes, great friends and family to share it with.
I recommend at the VERY LEAST:
Mahana Nai'a Molokini and Turtle Town Snorkel cruise from Maalaea Harbor
Old Lahaina Luau
Renting or bringing snorkel gear!! (we loved renting SUP-stand up paddle boards too)--we got the Hawaii Entertainment Book and got some great deals at the Snorkel Store in Lahaina.
The rest is depending on how active you want to be and how much time you have.
This is the 2nd time we rented with Gil, and once again had an unbelievable vacation beyond our expectations! THANK YOU!

Stay at Maui Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5
Best equipped condo I've ever stayed at!!! Has everything you could think of needing and then some. Unit is very comfortably furnished. Views are as descrbed and beautiful. Whales within 100 yards everyday. Small beach in front and a several mile long beach starts within 100 yards. Ground and pool are impecably maintained. Nice grill by pool. A lot more going on in Maalea than in past, several restaurants, shopping, gas station, aquarium as well as the marina. Most central location on the island. Will return on next trip to Maui.

From the Owner

On my second trip to Maui, I decided to stay in a condo at Maalaea Banyans. I was immediately struck with the most spectacular view of the ocean, bay, 10,000 foot rise of Mt. Haleakala volcano, boats cruising out to Molokini island and the sound of surf breaking right out in front of the condo. Maalaea Bay is also a whale sanctuary where whales can be seen in full view from your lanai (covered deck) from December to April. the condo is centrally located and just a 20 minute drive to all the major tourist attractions yet tucked quietly on the ocean for a relaxing retreat.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

Perfect, central location for exploring the majesty of Maui. 100% oceanfront location on Maalaea Bay whale sanctuary and walking distance to the Maui Ocean Center and harbor with snorkeling, diving and dining boat excursions as well as numerous restaurants and shopping. Just a 20 minute drive to two major tourist areas of Wailea or Lahaina/Kaanapali and convenient to the airport and the road to Hana or Mt. Haaleakala volcano preserve. After an active day you return to your oceanfront condo and the sound of soothing ocean waves and gentle island breezes.
