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... More

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... More

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... More

A nicely manucured facility. Quiet and peaceful. Friendly long-term residents. Gorgeous views. Unit is within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and beaches.

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... More

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... More

Unit #410 was in need of a good scrub and would not recommend staying there even if you are on a tight budget. The cleaning fee was a feeble excuse to charge an additional $75 . We actually had to buy cleaning products of our own and spent a couple of hours cleaning down the kitchen and washroom and removing... More

If you have small children that like to talk, laugh or giggle in the pool, this is not a place to come. Too many old people that cannot stand children or people that like to laugh at the pool. The mangement makes up rules and demands quiet at all times of the day. They call the police if you are... More

We love staying here #608. Great view, very close to the shore, very comfortable. We like the location because we can visit the whole island and not feel too far for anything. Quiet setting and simple, we like that too.
