Located just across the street from North Kihei’s Sugar Beach, Wailana Sands is the Maui vacation condo resort you go to for privacy and serenity. You will only be a short walk away from one of the longest beaches in South Maui, and a brief drive, or leisurely stroll along the coast, from Maalaea where whale watching cruises depart. Look south and Wailea is only 15 minutes away while Kahului Airport is 20 minutes to the north.
With some of the most popular activities and restaurants nearby, Wailana Sands’ 1 to 2-bedroom condos sleeping up to 5 guests make a perfect base for your Hawaiian holiday, whether you come as a couple, a family or as a group of friends. Enjoy glimpses of the ocean from the upper-level lanai, and take in the sparkling water of the pool surrounded by lush tropical landscaping of the courtyard as you lean out of your private balcony. From the ground-level lanai, you’re just a few steps away from the sumptuous garden of Hawaiian palms and tropical flowers, the lava fountain, and the pool. Marvel at gorgeous sunsets from the sandy beach nearby where, in season, breaching whales can be spotted right from the shore.
Air-conditioning cools the vacation rentals living room and the guest bedroom (both with backup ceiling fans), and you can always open the sliding glass doors to let the sea breeze in and hear the whisper of crashing waves. Plush sofa and flat-screen TV make catching up on your favorite movies and programs inviting, while wireless internet and telephone service allow you to stay connected all the time. If you love preparing meals, the condo’s full kitchen, with countertops and modern appliances, will make the process a delight. In the morning, it’s easy to whip up your favorite brew with a blender, a tea kettle, and a coffee pot in the kitchen. Bring a takeaway with you and warm it up in the microwave oven.

The open layout of Wailana Sands Maui vacation condos and the thoughtful placement of windows allow better air circulation and flood the interiors with as much natural light as possible. Some bedrooms open up to the living area, and the living area naturally spills out into the kitchen and the lanai, creating a roomier ambience than the generous space already suggests. The interiors are painted in a palette of light and soothing colors complemented with wicker and wood furniture and fixtures, and accented with colorful splashes of marine- and island-themed wall art and ornaments. At the end of the day, the welcoming comfort of king- and queen-size beds promotes restful sleep.
Begin your mornings with an invigorating stroll on the beach, all the way to Maalaea if you want, or by the condo complex’s pool soaking up the sun or taking a refreshing dip. There’s a grocery and a supermarket nearby if you’d like to pick up fresh seafood and produce for the gas grills. Then enjoy your BBQ picnic by the poolside. There is a laundry facility onsite so you can pack light on your holiday.
Wailana Sands in Maui is centrally located, so you’re never far from dining options ranging from Pacific/Hawaiian to Asian and even Mexican. From your condominium you’re a quick drive away from a golf club, and a short walk from the snorkeling, canoeing, and windsurfing action at Sugar Beach. Finding your own swimming spot on this five-mile stretch of sandy shore is also easy. And if swimming, beachcombing, and sunset-watching – minus the crowds – are all on your vacation to-do list, the Kalepolepo Beach and the Waipuilani Beach are nearby alternatives. Windy conditions also make both beaches ideal launching spots for kitesurfing. For those with ‘keiki’ in tow, the protected waters of Kalepolepo Beach makes a fantastic wading pool. When humpbacks flock to Maui’s waters to calve, you can witness their comings and goings from the deck of the Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary adjacent to the Kalepolepo Beach.
Four miles down the road lies Cove Park, a popular spot for novice surfers and paddle boarders to learn the sports or for keen snorkelers to spot the occasional sea turtle. Next to the beach park are facilities for volleyball, basketball, and tennis.
The Kamaole Beach trio lie a short distance south from Cove Park and are well worth a visit. Kamaole I marks the start of white sand and exotic Maui beaches that stretch all the way to Wailea condo resorts and Makena, while Kamaole II attracts paddle boarders and snorkelers when the morning wave and wind conditions are favorable. Kamaole III bustles with local activity as it’s where most residents gather for picnics and family events.
Looking north from your Kihei vacation rental at Wailana Sands, Maalaea beckons visitors with entertaining and educational museums like the Pacific Whale Foundation and the Maui Ocean Center. If you can’t join a whale-watching cruise, a fishing trip, or a Molokini diving or snorkeling cruise that depart from the harbor, make time to visit these centers to learn more about the whales and to see a living collection of the Pacific marine life up close.
Inland, the Haleakala volcano dominates the landscape. Hike up to the summit for breathtaking sunrise views, or summon enough courage to ride the wind off the slopes on a parasail.
Maui teems with attractions and activities, and all these are barely scratching the surface. With Wailana Sands’ perfect location in the heart of Kihei, you can easily get to where the action happens – whatever your mood or interests – and experience it for yourself. And with adventures like this, you would want to get started on the right foot. So let someone with vast experience and local knowledge connect you to the best vacation condo rentals available in Maui for a journey you will never forget.
