As soon as you open the door to Island Sands #310, you are immediately struck by the breathtaking views. Looking out from the balcony, you can see the entire Kihei coastline stretching out before you, with Haleakala towering majestically in the background. The neighboring islands are visible on the horizon, and the beautiful blue waters of the Pacific Ocean stretch out as far as the eye can see.
From December to mid-April, Humpback whales return to the warm, protected waters in front of the resort to give birth to their calves, right in plain sight of lucky guests. The balcony is perfect for preparing meals in the full kitchen and eating outdoors, so you'll never miss any of the action.
The bedroom is peaceful and relaxing, with cool tiled floors and a spacious king-sized bed. The living room features a comfortable sleeper sofa, allowing up to four guests to stay together. For your convenience, there is air conditioning in the living room, complimentary cable TV, high-speed internet, and free WIFI. The in-unit washer/dryer is also a must-have for any vacation rental.
The resort grounds are tranquil and well-maintained. Lounge around the beautiful pool area or fire up the BBQ station while enjoying the tropical breezes. There is also a picnic area with tables, ideal for enjoying a romantic dinner outdoors.
If you're looking for more adventure, a quick walk to the west of the resort will take you directly to the picturesque harbor, where you'll find a wide variety of shops and restaurants, as well as the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium, which is fantastic for all ages. If you're looking for family fun, head to the miniature golf course and enjoy a round or two.
For those who crave solitude, take a stroll down Sugar Beach's 2.5-mile stretch, just a few steps to the east of the resort. It's ideal for beachcombing and unwinding. It continues all the way to North Kihei, which is where you can grab some refreshments for the return walk.
Island Sands' central location makes it a great starting point for exploring the island's most popular attractions, such as Haleakala National Park, Hana Highway, and the Road to Hana, where you can experience breathtaking views of waterfalls, beaches, and lush greenery. With only a 15 to 40-minute drive from the resort, you'll have access to some of Maui's best-kept secrets, world-class entertainment, and spectacular natural beauty.
