Best point about this unit is it’s view from the deck. It’s on the 6th floor of a six floor building and located right in the center over looking the ocean only feet from the water’s edge. There is no beach area here but a walkable 2-3 mile beach is about a half mile away. Multiple State beach’s are an easy 10 minute drive away toward Lahaina.

This one bedroom, one bath condo had everything you need for a private getaway, including a very comfortable bed, which is very key. I have stayed at others in this same condo bldg that the bed was hard as a rock. Definitely a key factor in making future stays. This one was absolutely perfect, perfect amount of space for two. The view of the ocean from the lanai with my cup of coffee every morning was fabulous literally on the beach.

What I love is you can hear the ocean wave. It is very calming.

Stayed at Island Sands for years, this unit had all we needed.

The place was great for a couple. It was clean and neat. The view was fantastic. I took us 26 hours by air to get there with many delays. The welcome package was great with treat. The most welcome part was being able to make coffee the next morning that made my day. I rate it a ten

It was a good little complex with an absolutely amazing view of the ocean.
MEENA C. Jul 2022
Every morning we were greeted by turtles!! The place is super clean and comfortable!! They even let me check in about 5 or 6 hours early which helped a lot because our plane landed at 8:00am. We got a call and text feom the owners to make sure everything was fine....it was 😀 Thank you for the great stay!!

This was our first time to Maui and we are now in west Maui, but we started out trip here and out the door of this place is a super long amazing beach. It’s central to a lot of things. They do need to upgrade the patio furniture! And empty some drawers but overall it was clean and just what we needed! The bed is comfy too!!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kathy. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed our home! We are sorry to hear you were dissatisfied in the patio furniture at the home. We have passed your feedback regarding the patio furniture to our local management team and we hope to have the opportunity to impress you again very soon!

We enjoyed staying at Island Sands for our Honeymoon. The complex is quiet and people are friendly. The pool is clean and great for a cool off after a hot day.
The room we stayed in only had 1 window air conditioner so our bedroom was warmer and we used the fan. I would think 2 window units would make it even better.
We had a great time and we would definitely come again.
Aloha Hawaii, goodbye Hawaii
A hui hou kākou (until we meet again)💜

The unit had everything we needed and was centrally located so everything Maui has to offer was in reach. Perfect for folks like us who want to avoid the more touristy locations with swarms of people. Best of all, we were visited by turtles outside our window every day!
JAMES R. Mar 2022
Clean, nice view. Ceiling fan in living room didn't work. Everything else was very good.
Manager response:
Hi James. We are sorry to hear you experienced some issues with the ceiling fan in the home. Please know, our local staff and customer experience team are available should you experience any issues with the features or amenities the home has to offer. Thank you for sharing your feedback, and we hope to host you again in the future!

This unit provides a breathtaking view of the sunrise and of humpback whales breaching through the water. Just remember to bring a couple pairs of binoculars. It's about a 5 minute drive to the nearest beach.
The unit itself is okay, a bit outdated. The A/C unit only cools off the living room. The bedroom can be a bit warm even though there's a ceiling fan. All of the dresser drawers were so filled with towels and bedding that there was no room for our things.
The bed was comfortable, but the pillows could be softer.
Remember to bring your own supply of shampoo, conditioner, soap, and moisturizer. The couch and chairs looked clean, but the upholstery needed cleaning.
Overall, the most enjoyable part of our stay was waking to a beautiful sunrise, listening to the crashing sounds of ocean waves, and searching for whales through the lenses of our binoculars.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Edward And Allison, we're happy to hear you enjoyed the wonderful views and location of our home! We appreciate you letting us know of a few areas of the home that may need some attention and have notified our local manager. We apologize if the home was not properly supplied, and we'll follow up with our housekeeping staff to see that these starter items are restocked for future stays. We hope to host you for another relaxing stay!

We loved staying at the condo, absolutely beautiful view of the ocean on the top floor. I loved waking up in the morning and going out on the balcony to enjoy the sunrise. The bed was nice and comfy not like most hotels. It had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.
PAUL K. Aug 2021
We loved staying here. A well furnished apartment on the bay, with a great view. Turtles were feeding on the shoreline below the balcony. A convenient location but not so busy as in town. I would go here again. Only drawback, you need a car.
Rex B. Jul 2021
The view is fantastic! It’ excactly what you dream for when you come to Hawaii. There is a beautiful endless beach to walk just a few minutes walking from the condo. The location is also perfect, central on the island and easy access to shopping, beaches, snorkeling spots, etc.
Kathy S. Jun 2021
Stayed here before. It's OK. Central location walking distance to the marina. Nice beach; a short walk down the road. Pretty clean, but worn and needs some work. Little need for the air conditioner - we never turned it on. Spent most of the in residence time on the lanai. Great view and entertaining to watch the turtles feeding off the rocks directly below a.m. and p.m. Watch for the night divers! Things you can't do anything about, but should be aware of: a) It's Maalea. Windy, VERY windy. It whistles (and I do mean whistles!) through the bedroom window louvers most nights. You may also find it relaxing for the most part, but better get used to it. b) Top floor unit is located close to the elevator. Bedroom is next to the entrance so you get the constant elevator ding and oblivious guests who appear to be CLUELESS that their loud conversations in the walkway at night may be disturbing to other guests. If you want to try and continue to operate on some semblance of mainland time or even when you don't...yes, it's annoying. Areas needing improvement: a) Incredibly dull knives. The serrated one did the least damage to our food. b) Ancient and barely functional can opener. c) No beach chair or umbrella(s). We bought 2 of each and left them. These are basic beach vacation necessities. Hopefully they'll still be there for your stay, but no guarantees. d) Only 2 beach towels. ???? Washer/dryer works great. Had a great vacation, but exhausted from lack of sleep. Likely to try another unit next time.
Manager response:
Hi, Kathy! The homeowner is looking at things that can be updated in the near future, and your comments will certainly be taken under consideration. Thank you!

Amazing view, clean space and quick responses. We would stay here again. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Excellent vacation rental. Unit was as described with all amenities required included. Got in late and checking in was a breeze with a quick phone call to the management office. Never actually met with anyone which was fine. View was amazing and unit was within a 5 minute walk from an actual beach. Can`t wait to return. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`

Keith was very easy to communicate with. He manages over 350 rental units, but I always received a reply to my questions within minutes! The unit 607 in Island Sands is in great condition, comfortable sleeping with a long stretch of sandy beach nearby. The location is convenient for whale watching, you can see them breaching in a distance from the balcony or go on the tour that sails off from the Ma`alaea harbor in a walking distance. `This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.`
