About Vicki and John Stewart

We are from northern California and recently retired. This has been our part time island get away for the last 13 years. A rental management company has handled our vacation rentals for the last 12 years, and it was rated A+ Superior quality. We are now managing the vacation rental ourselves through VRBO! We hope you will enjoy our Maui home as much as we do!

Vicki and John Stewart purchased this condo in 2001

Why Vicki and John Stewart chose Maalaea

We fell in love with the views, the sounds of the ocean, & the central proximity to all island locations. The tropical breezes we get are soothing and cooling. Air conditioning is rarely needed. The grounds surrounding our building are immaculate and filled with beautiful Hawaiian plants and flowers. In our lobby is a welcoming waterfall and small pond filled with koi fish. The back side of our building is next to a sugar cane field, with the West Maui Mountains in full view. We are on a quiet street that dead ends to a sandy swimming beach with showers and shade trees. It also begins a unobstructed 5 mile sand beach walk into Kihei.

This is a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of our Maui paradise.

It is very peaceful here - and one of the best kept secrets of Maui!

What makes this condo unique

Concierge services on property. Mon-Fri.

Complimentary coffee and pastries every Friday 8:00 - 10:00 am poolside to share & learn Maui favorites with other guests and residents.

Stress relief

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a wonderful week decompressing and quieting the mind. I already miss the view of the surfers, ocean and islands from your lanai. The pink tone sunsets were beautiful and the night time stars, so bright. Thank you for a restful vacation.

Islands Sands property is lovely. The grounds are always kept in pristine condition.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Island Sands for the past six years and have found it very comfortable. Everything you need is there. The view is wonderful from the Lania, whales can be seen often. We do like the location, as it is quiet and everywhere you want to go is easily accessible. A walk to the beach or to the harbour is lovely in the morning. Very relaxing I must say! We enjoy the people we meet there at the pool, the coffee party Friday mornings, and also the pupu party on Saturday evening. All in all a great place to stay in paradise.

Wonderful stay at this wonderful condo with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location away from the crowds for this very comfortable condo! We loved the 7 minute walk to the harbor village of Maalaea and the 7 minute walk to the beach. We spent a lot of time on the lanai eating breakfast each morning, watching the whales in the afternoon and having a glass of wine as the sun set. It was a wonderful vacation!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and it had everything we needed plus more! The view from the lania was perfect to have breakfast and drink our morning coffee. The condo also had a nice breeze that kept us comfortable. We didn't even have to turn the AC on during our stay. The location was perfect for us. We loved our first Maui trip so much! We will definitely be back in the near future!

Beautiful and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay in 604. The condo was exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well stocked with essentials. What I loved most was the view from the lanai, watching the waves and rainbows. Really a wonderful place for a peaceful vacation.
