My wife and I have been traveling to Maui since 1984, and one of our favorite areas has been the town of Kihei. The weather is awesome here, always a bit more sunny than other parts of the island, and there are so many beaches and activities directly at hand. We have lived in Alaska for close to 30 years, hence the need to seek out warmer, sunnier climates in order to re-energize. We've been bringing our kids here almost from day one, so much to do and enjoy with them! The lure must have been great, because our son now lives on Maui with his wife, and two beautiful kids! We moved to Seattle two years ago, in order to be closer to family, especially our daughter, her husband, and their two beautiful children. Alaska still has its lure, so we travel back now and then for fishing and friends. Maui completes a most excellent triangle.
Stephen purchased this condo in 2013
We chose Kamaole Sands, and this property in specific, because it is one of the most beautiful properties on the island of Maui. The grounds are meticulously maintained, with walkways, water features, and landscaping that is just superb. The amenities are awesome, there is a front office for check-in, and the service is great. There are tennis courts, a swimming pool with 2 jacuzzis, an activities and concierge area, plus a work-out room as well. The grounds contain separate barbeque areas, and each building has its own elevator.
The location can't be beat. Directly across the way is Kamaole III beach, which has a large grassy area for picnics and viewing sunsets. The beach is quite nice, with excellent swimming and snorkeling from points at both ends. You can walk to shops, restaurants, nightlife and grocery stores within minutes, and nothing beats the area for morning walks, runs, and bike rides. A quick drive to the South takes you to the resort area of Wailea for golf, shopping, restaurants, and beaches, and additional sight seeing. A great property that you may never want to leave.
We love our condo due to many facets, including the location (can't be beat) the overall look of Kamaole Sands (just beautiful), and the comfort of our unit. The tiled floors, and the great ventilation keep it cool and comfortable. The lay-out of the place with a master suite that includes a full bath and walk-in shower, and a separate full bathroom for additional guests makes it so everyone has their own space. The kitchen is easy to work in with plenty of counter space for prep, and presentation, the living area is roomy, the dining area is comfortable, and the Lanai is spectacular! The fact that this is a corner unit is great, it lets in more light, and keeps the neighbors down to a minimum. The ceiling fans and the AC are there to keep you cool, and the entertainment system includes a Sony LCD TV, stereo player, DVD, and wireless internet. From the kitchen, through the living area, to the lanai, the views outside are just beautiful. Your own slice of paradise on Maui!
