We stayed at the Maui Sands Unit 5E for one week in November. The building is two-story that looks like a motel. Both the building and the room need some serious updating. Wires are exposed in several places, and the carpet in the room looks old and full of stains.
Worse yet, the kitchen area is full of small ants. We discovered the ants when we first arrieved and emailed the owner for a solution. We did not hear anything from her at all. I guess once you have paid, you are locked in. My wife almost wanted to leave immediately. She only stayed after I went out to get some bug spray and fumigated the whole kitchen area.
Overall, the experience is not very pleasant. I would not recommend this property at all. This place is way over-priced for what you are getting.
Also, when we made the reservation, we were told that we could swim in the ocean right outside the building. The fact is you can, but the surf is quite severe, and you must be a very good swimmer to avoid being thrown onto the rocks. Definitely not for the faint of heart.
