About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

Our condominium located at Kamaole Sands in sunny south Kihei has one of the superior garden/ocean views and is just steps from the Kamaole Beach III which is rated the top family beach in Hawaii by Sunset Magazine. This location is very protected from weather and averages only eight to ten inches of rain annually.

Kamaole Sands is for people who want an active lifestyle vacation. It is a tropical garden with 15 acres of cascading waterfalls and the scent of flowers in the air. The ocean is warm and the surf is gentle, creating a year-round water park that is perfect for families or for couples looking for a romantic retreat.

Ours is considered to be one of the nicest and best located/designed units at Kamaole Sands. The unique design affords 1288 square feet of living space on one floor. From both the livingroom/lanai and the master bedroom we enjoy a beautiful westerly view over the landscaped grounds and fountains across to the park and ocean which is about 200 steps away.

Great unit for an extended family

  • 5 of 5

We were three generations on vacation. Missy was very accommodating and the unit was clean and ready for us. The unit is very well equipped in the kitchen, extra bed dings, home supplies, and beach stuff including umbrella and toys.

The resort itself was well kept from BBQ, pool and grass. The beach was easy to reach and great for all of us

Truly the very best condo with the best view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit for our 18th wedding anniversary and it was so nice in every way. The master bedroom offered the nicest view of the ocean and grounds and wasn't in the walk way were everyone walks by. It was wonderful to leave the windows open and hear the ocean at night and feel the wonderful breeze. This condo is fully stocked with everything we ever need including all spices and many sauces for cooking. The owner allows renters to leave food items, (that aren't perishable or expired), for the next renter so there were lots of food options for my gentleman to graze on. The owner also provides lots of very nice and soft linens and towels that weren't full of fragrance fabric softener for those of us that are chemically sensitive and allergic to fragrances. The bed in the master bedroom was very pleasant and comfortable even with a bad back. The bathrooms were spotless when we arrived, which is a plus for us. There were lots of beach items, great chairs, boogie boards, coolers and beach mats. The owner takes extra pride in her condo and has furnished it with nice and very comfortable furniture that was not only nice to look at but very functional. There is a second bedroom with twin beds that will convert into a king bed but we just used it for our clothing and luggage. This is one of the very best condos we have ever stayed in and plan on staying here every time we come back to Maui. This rivals the condos at Mana Kai and for a much better price and location. Thank you to Oonagh Morley for hooking us up to this condo!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 really loved this condo and its owner, Missy. The condo was clean and spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. The condo is nicely furnished with amazing sunset views over Kam III beach and was quiet/peaceful at night. We really enjoyed the beach and pool supplies/toys along with the cooking supplies/spices/condiments. Missy was responsive to any questions we had and gave great suggestions to help us enjoy our stay on Maui. Our kids really enjoyed Missy's personalized Aloha welcome. Thanks Missy for sharing your piece of paradise with our family.

Best condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed at Melissa's condo for 10 days and it was the greatest experience on a vactaion we have had ever had!! We are comimg back! It was clean, updated, and cupboards were fully stocked with every fork, spoon, pot, cup, etc that was needed.The kitchen also had spices, condiments and fresh unopened food that previous guests would leave complimentary after there stay. It had everything for the beach, chairs, snorkel gear, boards, towels. There was an abundance of sheets. pillows, blankets, no shortage of anything... oh and as well very very spacius rooms and bathrooms. Washer and dryer was a plus to have. The view is beautiful and just a hop skip and jump to the beach. Melissa Thank you so much for letting us stay at your amazing condo!!

This specific condo offered a great accommodation for our family of 5. Two adults, a 21 year old, 19 year old and 17 year old.

Having a vehicle made the location ideal as we were close to the Costco, Safeway, Walmart , airport and a 45 minute drive to L'haina.

It was incredibly convenient having all the amenities already in the condo, especially the pool toys and boards and tennis rackets. Being an active family, we enjoyed the surrounding walking paths; beautiful scenery everywhere you look. The ocean front view across the main road made the beach very accessible and this condo suite was equally close and convenient.

The weight room was sufficient for even athletes to train.

The suite offering 2 bathrooms was greatly appreciated. There was an abundance of towels for bathing and beach use.

The air mattress was just fine for a 17 yr old, 6'3" boy. There was plenty of room move about without walking all over each other.

If you think you forgot anything, everything was was nice having former guests leaving unusual items: nail polish remover, laundry soap, pop, etc...just until you could get to the store.

The owner is fantastic to do business with. We certainly would recommend this condo to any family for their holidays, family wedding, or a work contract.

Very nice unit!

  • 4 of 5

We found the owners to be simply the best to deal with. Very helpful and responsive. They even called the first night to make sure everything was OK.

The unit is VERY nice with everything you could want. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was great.

The only downside is the lack of A/C. The master bedroom traps the heat from the setting sun. Even with the ceiling fan and three other fans going, the room just did not cool off enough for a good night's sleep. One of us slept on the couch under the only A/C unit and the other did not sleep much. An air mattress in the living room might be ideal.

Other than the uncomfortable temp, the unit is GREAT. If you can sleep in a warm room, this maynbe the best place in Maui to stay.

One final note, the office staff in Kamole Sands are unhelpful and rude. But, you only need to deal with them upon arrival. It is a privately-owned unti and again, the owners are great.
