Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to thank you for renting your gorgeous home to us.

We had a fantastic time! Your home was perfect for our family. Everyone had plenty of personal space as well as plenty of space for gathering together.

We appreciated your well stocked kitchen! And a very generous supply of towels!

Everything was wonderful!

The view is beyond words!

At most anytime we looked, we could see whales spouting and playing around.

Also... Several sea turtles came right up on the beach.... And numerous turtles came on the beach just south of the grounds of the Sands.... Where the rocks are...

Your home is so beautiful and sooooo comfortable!

If we ever get to go back to Maui, we will certainly check with you to see if we can rent from you again...

We all wanted to refuse to leave..... :-).

We enjoyed the island... Powered hang gliding in Hana, the road to Hana, going to the blow hole .... And all the sights on that route, Ultimate Whale Watch, snorkeling (Bob's Snorkeling.... To get the prescription goggles), swimming in the ocean, Haleakala, sea turtles, mixed lunch plates, fish tacos, gelato, Honolulu Cookies, Ono shave ice.... And so much more.

This vacation will be a fantastic lifelong memory for all five of us!

Sands of Kahana

  • 5 of 5

I have just finished a seven day stay at this magnificent condo in Kahana Maui. I have extensive experience at multiple properties on all of the islands of Hawaii and I have to say this condo is the Babe Ruth Home Run....this is the best of the best!!!!! It just can't get any better.

It is a large comfortable home with the perfect view and the perfect lay out. The kitchen is fully equipped with whatever a cook or chef might need to create a wonderful meal..and there are multiple BB stations on the property. The beds are comfortable and each room permits a wonderful serenade of the sound of the ocean. The home has all of the ocean gear necessary for a fun time on the beach. The beach here is dozens of times better than that of the Ritz down the road and better than most beaches you will experience on the island. I tried snorkeling, spear fishing, and kayaking, while others were surfing (a bit out to sea) sail boarding,and doing other ocean sports. It is a great home for a family get away and or a get away for couples and /or friends It is an easy drive to golf courses, other beaches, and to multiple restaurants a island shopping. It is convenient to all island adventures and a pedestrian friendly area also! The complex is sophisticated and quiet. You will be able to relax, decompress and have whatever adventure suits your heart. Bill and Cindy have been thorough, direct and professional in all of their dealings with me.

There is a difference between a flower and a Gem. This condo is a gem. Don't pass up the opportunity!!!

As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

Finding this condo was a big deal. I had been searching for a three bedroom, hopefully three bath, condo to accommodate me, my wife, my 30 year old daughter and my 28 year old daughter with her husband. And because neither of my daughters or my son-in-law had ever been to Hawaii, it had to be in just the right location.

By process of elimination Sands of Kahana became one of the possibilities. Reviews on TripAdvisor, however, had me a little leery. Then I came across Cindy & Bill Vinson's property which I could rent directly through them. That is to say I wouldn't be at the mercy of the reservation agents on the property.

The pictures on the website looked too good to be true. When we arrived I was prepared for a little embellishment of the facts. If anything things were better than I could have expected. Clean, up-to-date and cozy. In addition, there were plenty of food options within walking distance and Lahaina and Napili were just five minutes down the road.

Cindy Vinson was a delight to deal with. She even called my cell phone after we arrived to make sure everything was in order. Five star hotels don't give you that kind of service. We were very, very pleased with Cindy and her condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Ken - we are blushing! I agree that's it's important to rent through an owner at the Sands of Kahana- not through the time share people, because all the premier units are individually owned and maintained, and also because our unit has AC and the time share units do not. Location, as they say, is everything, and our penthouse is oceanfront and on the top floor, so there is never any noise or congestion to deal with. 2700 square feet is the largest 3B/3ba condo on Maui- it's really more like the space you would find in a home. Please come back soon! Cindy

Amazing Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was at your "huge" condo. Everything was so nice, overall property, actual unit, furnishings, linens, extras.... This was our 2nd trip to Maui in a year and a half and first time bringing our adult and teen children and they were blown away by your place. Thank you for sharing your "slice of heaven" and thank you for your extremely prompt return of our deposit. I had made several arrangements (fishing charter, Luau, etc) prior to our arrival so I did not call the management company that appeared ready to help us make the most of our stay. My oldest daughter and husband really enjoyed taking your nice beach umbrella out to shade their 10 month old and the chairs nearby in the grass allowed grandpa to watch the fun and enjoy a good book in the shade. Our only "minor" complaint this time of year was how warm it got in the afternoon with all the skylights without any covering. Your view is wonderful for enjoying the sunsets and we all had plenty of room to spread out even when we all ended up in the kitchen it wasn't too crowded. Very good design with the bathroom toilet/shower area being a separate room from the double sink vanity areas. We highly recommend this unit to any and all families and/or group of couples, Kahana is such a good location for taking advantage of the activites/beaches nearby in Kapalua and Kaanapali and Lahaina. Parking underground near the elevator was also superb, we had 2 cars and never had a problem. Mahalo!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa, Kathy- we are so happy you enjoyed the penthouse!We were there right behind you for a quarterly deep clean and while there we made lots of improvements, as we do every time we visit. We hope you and your family return and take advantage of our discounted rates for returning guests! The sea turtles are numerous in the ocean right in front of the Sands now and we hope you had a chance to enjoy them as we did!

So Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Maui at this penthouse condo unit. From check-in to check-out, everything operated smoothly and efficiently. Cindy was so easy to work with and she ensured all questions/enquiries were answered promptly. This unit was perfect for our family of 7 and we were comfortable and had all we needed for a wonderful vacation. The stock of supplies such as towels, sheets, and water 'goodies' was beyond anything we've seen before. Cindy had told us there was plenty to choose from there and she was absolutely right. The kitchen was very well equipped and all electronics and kitchen equipment were operational. We really couldn't have asked for more! We will be back! Thank you for making our too-short vacation so enjoyable, pleasant and for exceeding all expectations! Your place was simply fantastic.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa! We are so happy you enjoyed a the extras we try to provide for our guests' comfort and enjoyment! Our new tropical soap, shampoo and conditioner (made on Maui!) are a big hit with guests too. Our huge kitchen makes it easy to supply everything you could need to cook gourmet meals, if you can drag your eyes away from the amazing ocean views in the penthouse.

Fantastic Large Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

The unit exceeded the description. Two story unit on 8th floor with manificent and unobstructed views of ocean, Molokai and Lanai. Our family of 5 (3 adult boys and my wife and I) felt at home right away. At night we were able to fall asleep with the windows open and hear the surf as if we were on the first floor. Very spacious and comfortable and all the modern electronics which our family appreciated. We utilized the kitchen and the BBQ's for most of our 8 nights. The beach is great for boogie boarding. The snorkeling at this beach is ok, but a 5 minute drive to Kapalua and Honolua where it was spectacular. Washer/Dryer worked great. General Store directly across the street for any last minute needs. Owner (Cindy) called us upon arrival to make sure everything was ok. We've been to Maui and Kauai many times and would definitely return.

We recently took our two kids and their spouses to Maui for our 40th wedding anniversary and stayed in this fabulous condo. What a delight. Amazing, fantastic, awesome, sensational, and marvelous are just the beginning of words to describe this condo. With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, everybody had their private rooms and they were beyond spacious to say the least. There is plenty of room in this condo. All of the bedrooms have beautiful views of the ocean, the mountains or both.

The owners have this unit stocked with everything you'll need to make you feel right at home during your stay. Plenty of towels & linens, a big bottle of shampoo, and even coffee for the Keurig coffee maker. The condo is also stocked with everything you need down at the beach and plenty of board games as well. The huge kitchen has every appliance you can imagine.

The lanais (there are three of them) offer spectacular views. We saw whales and sea turtles almost every day from the lanais. There is a nice pool area with a restaurant and the beach is perfect for swimming, sun bathing, or just taking a stroll along the ocean.

The staff in the resort was very friendly and the grounds are very clean and maintained very well. There are an abundance of gas grills for guests to use and they are meticulously cleaned every morning. There is a sand volleyball court, tennis courts, putting green, and a nice pond to sit by if you so desire.

The resort is in a very nice neighborhood of Maui and there is a huge amount of dining opportunities within a few minutes of the condo and a great pizza place right across the street called Dollies Café & Pub, which was voted best pizza on Maui.

The owners are just wonderful to deal with and answer all questions you have promptly. They really go out of their way to make sure your time in their condo will be without problems. Cindy called the unit the first day we were there to make sure everything was OK and if there were any problems to call her immediately. She gave us a tip about the sea turtles coming to an outcrop of rocks close to the condo around 4pm and sure enough, we went over there and the sea turtles were there. We also saw them swimming along the shoreline right in front of the condo almost every day.

This place is one of those rare finds that you are glad you found out about. We can’t wait to go back. Thank you Bill and Cindy for providing such a wonderful place for people to enjoy Hawaii.
