Stayed: March 2013
This is my third stay in three years at the Kamaole Sands. The first time was with Micheal, the second time wasn't. This time, I contacted him early in order to make sure that I could have his condo. That's how much better his condo is compared to others.
The kitchen is well stocked, and had a few sundry items (oil, balsamic vinegar, spices) to make life a little easier.
There are plenty of sheets and towels, and the beds are comfortable. The sofa bed is even good enough for my 11 year old son stayed on it for 9 days, without complaining. It's clean and well maintained. 2 TV's help when you're tired of the Disney Channel and Cartoon network, at the end of the day.
While some have better views, this ground floor condo is well situated for walking to the beach, getting to the pool or grilling some food. This is especially important when lugging beach chairs, coolers and boogie boards.
I would always recommend this resort to my family and friends; and especially this unit. Micheal is a delight to deal with and I look forward to my next vacation in Kihei.
Stuff to do:
Maui Dive Shop has always been very helpful and we like their tours. Unfortunately, their boat was broken down, and they couldn't accommodate us. They suggested Maui Dreams and we found that they were a great company as well for scuba and snorkeling. Maui Dive Shop also has good prices on all their gear. I thought that they would be boosting the mark up, but they are very competitve on non-dive stuff like surf shirts, footballs and flip flops.
Maui Wave Riders has good deals for surf lessons and board rentals. I've used them every trip, and due to the repeat business, they offered me the reduced rate for rentals. Good company!
Fat Daddy's for good barbeque ribs, brisket and pulled pork. Lava Java for coffee; it looks like a Red Dirt Shirt shop, but it is actually a great place for lattes and buying local beans to bring home. Closer to the resort is a food truck called Surf Dog Coffee, if you don't want to travel the mile and a half down the road.
