The condominium has been tastefully decorated in island style and in general is equipped with all the comforts of home to make your vacation an unforgettable experience.

The condominium is just a short walk across the street to the Kamaole III beach where you can swim, read a book under the trees, or just sit and watch the whales in season or the sunset. Building 1 is situated so that there is no problem with either street noise or pool noise. It also features easy access to the swimming pool, two hot tubs, barbecue grills, and tennis courts.

About Sharon Whipple

We are both retirees of The Dow Chemical Company where we worked for almost 30 years. Steve specialized in computer systems, where as, Sharon is a chemist and worked in Technical Service and Development related to water treatment. In retirement we both enjoy playing tennis and doing volunteer work. We also enjoy spending time with our two daughters, two son in laws, and three grandchildren. Managing our condo in Maui has been a great source of pride and accomplishment in our lives.

Sharon Whipple purchased this condo in 1998

Why Sharon Whipple chose Maui

We had vacationed at this property for several years and really loved it. It is a great family resort in a wonderful location near the beach. You can walk on the beach for miles in either direction and you can snorkel right in front of the condo. You can also walk to dinner and shopping if you are not up for a drive. We also love the fact that we see local Hawaiian's using the beach and park and can feel like we are a part of their culture.

What makes this condo unique

The central garden is absolutely beautiful with a variety of colorful flowering plants and trees. There is also a large pool and two hot tubs to enjoy after a busy day on the island. The BBQ areas are a short walk from the lanai of the condo and have been recently renovated. The four tennis courts are generally available and they are conveniently located. This is a low density condominium complex with plenty of room to walk around and enjoy the grounds.

Perfect Location with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Great Location on this well stocked, well maintained condo! Full sun all day on the large Lanai and beautiful views of both the gardens of Kamaole Sands and the Ocean. The ground floor and flat lawn area in front of the Condo were perfect for us with very young children for them to go out and play. We would be delighted to stay in this Condo again for our Vacation next year. Thanks Sharon!

A Gem on Wailea and Kihei Border

  • 5 of 5

This was a WORK trip for me and it was perfect. Sharon was a delight and helped expedite my last minute reservation. If you've never been to Maui I would highly recommend this property. Beautiful ocean view, right across the street from one of the best beach parks on the island and in walking distance to absolutely everything. The condo is stocked with all the basics one could need for vacation. They even provide laundry soap and the dishwasher for your stay. I will definitely stay here again.

Lovely Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful spot which has been recently very tastefully renovated. It was very well equipped. There is a large lanai with table, chairs and loungers, which faces toward the ocean. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner, who was very helpful and welcoming. Being across from the beach was a wonderful bonus. The grounds are amazing and well kept. The pool is well maintained. We would love to rerent this property in the future. In fact, our daughter and her husband have rented it for two week next summer and we recommended it to friends; however, it was not available during the winter months.

Great location in the complex

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Kamaole Sands 3 of 3 visits to Maui now...couldn't think of a reason to change as this complex has eveything you need and more. We heard it was the most secure - given it is the only complex with 24 hour onsite security, whereas the others only have drive by security and it makes all the difference. The condo faces the wonderful inner courtyard fountain pool, and is a short walk to the BBQ. The lanai is awesome and a great place to be any time of day. The unit is well equipped and makes for a great vacation for a couple or small family. Great to be located close to the beach too - so walking over is not too far when carrying chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, snorkels, etc. Also, not a long return in case you forgot your sunscreen or hat! Across from the best beach in Kihei too.

I almost hate to write about how great this condo is because I'm afraid that next time we go it won't be available. We have stayed at Kamaole Sands since 1987 and this unit is by far the best one ever! Your pictures were great but still don't do justice. It seemed made for us. It was close to the office, close to beach, close to bbq's and away from pool noise. The large lanai and the view from it were fabulous. At all the other condos we have stayed in at Kamaole, we had to run the air conditioner several hours each day but not this time. The only time it was on we set it for 1 hour @ bedtime. Maybe because of the location, the condo stayed cool all day everyday. Thank you so much for such a pleasent stay. WE WILL BE BACK!!

Summer in Maui

  • 4 of 5

Overall our experience in this very well equipped condo was great. The only problem was with the bedroom being near the elevator and some people when coming home late at night were very noisy standing by the elevator. It was very warm in July and we had to leave the window open to catch any breeze we could, so we could hear anyone. There are fans in the room but we dont like using them. However I would still recommend this property. We loved the large lanai and being close to the beach. Sharon was very accommodating and answered all our questions about the rental unit

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very positive review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our Maui home. We believe that our condo is in a very favorable overall position with respect to noise. There is no road noise, no pool noise and no noise from the multiple barbeque areas. These are serious noise issues for many condos on property. Occationally a guest will violate the quiet hour rules and talk in the walkways or by the elevator at night. There is not much we can do about that. Also, we just purchased a new tower fan which is very effective at moving cool air into and around the bedroom. We are here in Maui now and this new system is working very well. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Aloha, Sharon Whipple, the owner.
