I can sum it up in one word.......roaches. Ick! Needs some fixing up. One of the small bathroom windows was broke and wouldn't open so it would get extremely stuffy in there. Dryer only worked on one setting. Condo was centrally located. 5 minute walk to the beach. You could watch the sunrise, but not sun set from the lanai....

We've made several trips to Maui and this location is our favorite for whale watching and golf. It is so convenient to the several golf courses we love to play and for exploring any part of the island. Our sixth floor condo was clean and beautifully decorated, had comfortable beds, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Beautiful hardwood floors...

Most of the reviews of Island Sands appear to be accurate, although the outside was nicely updated a couple of years ago. The landscaping & pool are pretty & well care for. We stayed in condo 608 & found it on VRBO. From other reviews, I understand that not all Island Sands condos are equal but 608 has been totally...

This resort combines permanent residents with short term vacation rentals. The vacation units are individually owned, and unit quality ranges from marginal to outstanding. The building is an older six story concrete building, with excellent views from the upper floors and the east side (higher unit numbers). The building is crescent shaped, and curves away from the beach toward the...

We stayed at the Island Sands Unit #605 in Maalaea. This is an ideal location. Anywhere you want to go is pretty much within a 20-30 minute drive. The unit is incredibly upgraded and completely stocked. Let me emphasize on the incredible upgrade, I don't think there is a nicer unit in the building. There is a fantastic ocean view...

This was my third trip to Maui and this time I stayed in Unit #605 at Island Sands Resort. In the past I have stayed at the Hyatt and other hotels on the island. Staying at Island Sands was a nice change due to it's central location and ability to visit all parts of the island. The unit itself was...

Although it was sometimes windy in Maalaea, as we had read, it was welcome so we did not have to turn on the air conditioner even once during our one week stay. Unit 110 has everything we needed to prepare meals. The owners have provided many nice touches; a tray to take food to the lanai, books on Maui, a...

We recently vacationed in Maui at the Island Sands in Maalaea unit #605. Our accomodations were nice and clean and made us feel right at home. The views were breath taking. We found the wind to be a little strong at times but it was a wonderful vacation and we look forward to going back again soon. We would definately...
