At Island Sands Resort Maui, we have 1- and 2-bedroom vacation condos that comfortably sleep up to six guests. With stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and the West Maui Mountains from your private lanai, you’ll never want to leave your condo!

The view from offshore is amazing. You can see the islands of Kahoolawe and Molokini, which make the view even more beautiful. Don’t forget to watch the sunsets – they are incredible. In winter, you might also be able to see humpback whales breaching right from your living area!

Superb Modern Facilities and Amazing View

At your vacation rental, you can choose to open the glass doors and let the ocean breeze flow in or use the air conditioner. Relax on the comfortable couch as you catch up on movies or current events on television. You can also stay connected with your friends and family by using the free wireless internet service.

The full kitchen in these vrbo units is a step up from your standard hotel, making it easy to prepare your favorite meals or tropical smoothies. Stainless appliances add a modern touch and inspire cooking confidence, even if it means as simple as reheating leftovers in the microwave oven. Enjoy a cup of coffee and some crunchy toast on the balcony of your Maui vacation rental to start your day. From your lofty perch, you can admire the Maui-shaped swimming pool below. Even when you take your meals inside to the dining area, you’ll still be able to see the ocean.

Downstairs, take a stroll around the hotel resort’s landscaped grounds to admire its various tropical vegetation and bright flowers. Look for surfers surfing the waves or divers emerging from the depths with a load of fresh fish in the area. Fresh fruit from the market may be purchased, as well as fire up the BBQ grill for a delectable seafood dinner. Then enjoy some pool time, sunbathe, or seek your Zen moment at the indoor koi pond after that.
