This was our third time staying in one of Nikta Houston's units and it never ceases to amaze us how accommodating and helpful Nikta always is. We had our 6 month old grandson with us this time and Nikta had the baby furniture waiting for us when we arrived. The condo is beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you...

Maalaea Bay has a bad reputation because of a certain book. I am so greatful for that review! That makes the whole Maalaea Bay are the best picking. My family has stayed here twice. They have elevators and beautifully landscape gardens. There is no beach per-say. It's right on the reef so you hear the crashing all the time. But...

Good value and great location thats central to everything. Our room was 604. Nice HAwaiian motif. Saw turtles in the ocean from our lanai. Best views ever.

This was our second stay at the Island Sands and we absolutely love it! The location is perfect; it is centrally located to everything on Maui (airport, Kahului for shopping, Lahaina, the great beaches along Kihei, Wailea, and Makena, walking distance to the Maui Ocean Center and shops.) It is also nicely located on a dead end street, without a...

Wow, what a great stay we had at Island Sands unit #605. The unit is beautifully decorated, well stocked with everything you could need and very clean. We spent a good portion of our time sitting out on the lanai enjoying the spectacular ocean views. There is something special about starting your day with a nice cup of coffee and...

We absolutely love Nikta's beautiful 2BD/2BA unit at Island Sands and we cannot wait to go back. There is access to a great little beach right behind the building and most days we were the only ones on it. We fished right off the beach and caught enough papio and lai for two nights dinners, which we BBQd down stairs...

This is our second trip back to the Island Sands in Maalaea, and I promise we will come back again. We discovered Nikta Houston a few years ago and she introduced us to Maalaea. We had previuosly stayed ay the posh resorts in Wailea and Kaanapali, but we have now fallen in love with this less crowded, great beach and...

Our stay at Island Sands was so enjoyable. The condo is spacious, wonderfully decorated and stocked with all you will need to feel at home. The lanai looks out to the ocean which is literally in the backyard and just off the harbor a reef break produces succulent waves that call you into the water. The grounds are really well...

Reserving this unit was effortless. Nikta always responded in a timely manner and went above and beyond our expectations. The complex was well cared for and quiet. The unit itself was large, clean and well appointed. It had everything we needed as well as items to take out and about (beach chairs, coolers, maps, beach towels, etc). This unit is...

Our stay at Island Sands #605 in April was fabulous. It is furnished with everything you could possibly need. It even had beach chairs and sand mats that we took to Makena Beach. The view is stunning and unobstructed. It is very quiet and relaxing. The decor is lovely and the grounds are beautiful. Both bedrooms and baths were well-furnished...
