About Cynthia & John Rocha
My husband and I are Real Estate Investors. We enjoy traveling and no matter where we go, we always find ourselves looking at properties. Since we still have school age children I have found that a beach vacation is usually the most enjoyable for everyone. Living on the West Coast, Hawaii continued to be a place that we would return to time and time again. We also own 2 other units in the same building. VRBO 874377 and 1278701. Check out our reviews or if coming with a larger group try and book multiple units.
Cynthia & John Rocha purchased this Condo in 2018
Why Cynthia & John Rocha chose Lahaina
What can we say? We just love Sands of Kahana and own 3 units here in the same building (874377 & 1278701). We had been looking for several years for the perfect Hawaiian family condo. The condo had to be on a swimmable beach, have fantastic views and enough room for everyone to stretch out. When our friend bought a condo here and I saw his unit and the location, I told him that is exactly what we are looking for. We have really enjoyed unit 391 so when the unit below us (382) became available we purchased it. And here we are, we couldn't pass up this unit (343) being that it is a corner unit and offers amazing unobstructed views and a different floor plan. Something for everyone. These units offer everything that I was hoping for to make our family vacations fun and memorable and any adult only vacations relaxing.

Sands of Kahana ... 25 years later
It’s been 25 years since we have stayed at Sands of Kahana. In all the years we have been coming to Maui I have never stayed in a better unit. Unit 343 is very clean, modern and well decorated. Kitchen is well stocked with glasses, plates, silverware pots & pans and cooking utensils. Furniture and beds are very good and the views are amazing. The unit also has a great selection of beach items.
Cynthia & John Rocha are extremely accommodating and want to make sure every guess has the best time possible.
Cynthia also put together an excellent “Welcome” book that tells you what you need to know to get started if you have never been to this are before.
My wife and I will definitely stay in this unit when we next return to this part of Maui.
Remarkable accomodations in Paradise
We have stayed at the Sand of Kahana many times. The reason we like this locations is it has a great beach right out front, great onsite amenities, proximity to Lahaina. At Sands of Kahana, the units are very spacious, the building are ideally laid out, has two great pools, one is a wading pool for kids, and a great bar and restaurant onsite, bbqing areas and club room with various activities.
This unit is one of the best units I have stayed at here. It was recently remodeled with a contemporary beachy vibe, appointed with everything you need for cooking and going to the beach. The views of this unit are to die for. I really enjoyed the second bedroom, so light and airy with a complete wall of windows directly looking at the ocean and includes it's own private Lanai. It has everything your looking in a resort but the conveniences of home. Can't wait to book my next trip here.
Maui Vacation--Sands of Kahana 343
We recently completed a 1 week stay in Maui having rented Sands of Kahana 343. We've been VRBO vacation condo renters the past 8 years. Before we rent; like most people we rely on past reviews of others; but we also value communications with the property owner. From our initial booking correspondence to periodic messages during the stay; the owners of this unit (more specifically Cynthia); demonstrated a sincere interest in us to make sure our stay was outstanding. The unit is in a great location (we've been to Maui before and enjoy this part of the island) in the Kaanapali area and overlooks the ocean. Great location for sunset viewing (incredible sunsets), watching surfers, paddle boarders, and the occasional turtles that meander by. Nice beach in the front of the complex (though beach erosion is an issue for many condos in the area) but we, like many others, used the lounge chairs that are on the lawn in front of the beach. From the lawn to the beach, less than 50 steps. Nice pool area, but there were times that the restaurant and bar that is by the pool was a bit noisy with music or the tv's on (just to be clear; the music and tv's were not on all the time). The unit is well stocked with every kitchen amenity needed for cooking, eating and mixing your favorite island beverage. Both bedrooms are large; and unique to this unit is that both rooms have an ocean view (the master bedroom certainly has a larger view). The unit was recently remodeled; so kitchen and bathrooms are new. Furnishings are new and comfortable, but to be honest during the day we did not spend that much time in the unit. Our breakfast and dinners were always in the unit but on the lanai, which has a table that comfortably seats 6. The unit has beach "stuff", so we took advantage of the boogie boards, chairs and snorkeling gear. So overall we rate the Sands of Kahana 343 with 5 stars. Want to close by coming back to owner communication. During our stay we did encounter a few maintenance issues; but when I reached out to Cynthia she responded immediately and the had the issues resolved. Cynthia is sincerely committed to make your stay at Sands of Kahana 343 enjoyable and memorable. Our stay certainly was; and we look forward to a return stay.
Everything you could possibly think of was supplied with this unit. It is very spacious and updated!
The pictures don't do it justice.
This place is incredible and it's just as it looks in the pictures, only better. The rooms are so spacious. You can hear the waves from the master bedroom. This is a perfect place to stay for couples as each bedroom has its own bathroom and access to a veranda. You get a great breeze when you open the sliding doors, all the windows, and you crack open the front door. We closed the drapes and shut off the air when we left for the day and the unit stayed pretty cool, so it didn't take long to cool off once we returned. Cynthia has thought of everything, it really felt like a home away from home. The only downside is the beach doesn't look like it does in the pictures as they are experiencing some beach erosion, which is an act of Mother Nature. Don't let that stop you from staying here. There is still plenty of beach and plenty of space to lay out. The views are beyond incredible! You can see Moloka'i and Lana'i from both bedrooms. I could keep going. Cynthia was super easy to communicate with and helped to truly make this a trip of a lifetime! Thank you for a fabulous time!
First off, I would like to say this was our first time renting a condo and I was a little nervous. The condo was absolutely beautiful and so clean! Cynthia left us a nice handwriting welcome card to add a personal touch! We loved staying there. It felt like we were at home with a view! The pictures supplied are right on target! The view was amazing! Check-in and check out process was so easy. Location and property was perfect. We were on the go from morning until early evening most days, so we did not use all of the amenities, but the kids enjoyed the tennis and golf. We also had one evening where we cooked on the grill. The placed was stocked with everything you needed for the beach and the kitchen had everything you would need to use to cook. We would definitely book this place again on our next visit! I would highly recommend this place to rent! You would not be disappointed. Thanks again Cynthia! 😁�
Our beautiful condo is located within the Sands of Kahana Resort. We have an onsite restaurant/bar, 2 pools & spas, and an sandy beach that you can swim in. There is something for everyone.
