About Deb Cochrane

We love Maui. it has the best weather in the world, world class beaches, is the perfect size plus the friendly Hawaiians, locals & culture make it a safe haven for a lengthy or short tropical vacation. It is absolutely perfect.

Deb Cochrane purchased this condo in 2008

Why Deb Cochrane chose Maui

We holidayed in Maui for 30 years, the first 15 in Kaanapali and the last 15 in South Kihei at Kamaole Sands. Over the years we stayed in almost every building at Kam Sands assessing the features and benefits of each. For many years we traveled with our children, now it is just the two of us with the exception of wonderful visits from our kids. We chose our suite because of the large lanai, the ocean view and the privacy. We now winter for five months in our renovated Maui home and know we made the right choice, we love, love. love it.

What makes this condo unique

Third floor, end unit with an EXTREMELY private lanai (deck) with an ocean view over Kamaole 2 Beach. A rare bonus extra (end) window where sunset colors that light up the sky can be enjoyed. We're situated a convenient but quiet distance from the elevator, garbage chute , barbecues & electronic car gate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank-you for the use of your home. We had an opportunity to see other units while here and yours is exceptional!! We love Maui and are sad to go, we hope to be back soon. Mahalo.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have stayed at many of the nearby condos to this one in Maui. Generally we have liked them all. The location is very convenient. We typically stay in the area 2-4 weeks in the year. Here are some positives and negatives:

Positive:

- Deb the owner is very nice and very responsive even though she is miles away. She was truly a pleasure to deal with. She helped make every step as simple as possible and had really thought of everything (thank you Deb)

-there are instructions/ rules for many things so if you read it you can find all sorts of things in the condo.

-there was more supplies in the house than I thought. Other than buying some paper towels and few other items we didn't have to buy much else.

- it was very kind of the owner to let us us all the different supplies

- new washer and dryer

Negatives:

- wifi had very weak to no signal in the bedroom. That is due to the fact that the modem is a single band modem located on the other side of the house with the walls all being made of concrete .

-this was both a positive and negative. There was many instructions/ rules. Most of them were common sense items.

-AC: there is only one in the condo and it is all the way on the other side of the condo and has little to no effect on the bedroom temperature. I did notice multiple other people's review mentioning this as an issue and had dismissed it. But it is is true. There are many fans in the house but if you want to cool down in a hot day after being active that doesn't help. The other thing that I had not seen in any other condos was that the ac was forced by the owner to run on timer. I realize that the cost of electricity is high and some people may just turn ac on the entire time they are there. And the timer would control the electricity cost. As a example I wanted the ac to run overnight while we are sleeping to cool down. But the timer wouldn't allow you to run it over the 8 hr that you were sleeping. If you come from west coast or other warm climates this will not probably be an issue for you. But if you come from east coast of US or Canada in the winter time you are going to find it to be warm.

We will certainly try to book this location in our future travels to the island.

Thanks

Ali

Owner's Response: Thank-you Ali for your feedback, we always pay attention to what our guests say. Regarding a/c, that is # 1 on our to-do list this year. Only in the past two years has the heat been an issue, not too sure why. There was an ad hoc committee of owners struck to look into the most effective and efficient type of a/c for the bedrooms. We will be installing one that we feel comfortable with for ease of use and efficiency. Electricity is very, very expensive on the islands, some countries where we have travelled have lights and a/c that only work when the key is inserted. With our new bedroom a/c I believe the summer heat can be managed. Our condo also has an amazing breeze that blows through to cool the rooms. I will look into a stronger modem, thank-you; we have followed all the hints offered by our resident IT expert, but I agree, it could be much faster; you are right, the concrete building has many assets, unfortunately it is not a friend of the internet. We'd love your family to come again.

Beautiful view, large lanai, great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful, newly remodeled condo for 10 days, November 2016. We were very happy! Everything was perfect. The condo is very well stocked with everything we needed and more! It is clear that the owners truly care about those coming to stay at their island home and do everything that they can to ensure a wonderful beach vacation. Condo Owner Deb regularly communicated with us as we prepared to visit and even checked in with us on our arrival date to make sure we were happily settled in. Deb is fabulous! The view from the large lanai was wonderful and we really enjoyed that too! We spent time at the beach every day. The beach is right in front of the property. The reefs are packed with a large variety of colored, reef fish and we saw sea turtles every day. Great snorkeling! Kamaole Sands is an absolutely beautiful property and very well maintained. Can't wait to return again someday! Thank you Cochran's!

Everything we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

The unit is gorgeous and had everything we needed. We used the kitchen a lot, it was like cooking at home in that they had absolutely everything I needed and not just the basics. Bathrooms have been updated with nice tile with marble accents. Washer and dryer also look brand new. Lanai is huge and gorgeous. Just the edge of the lanai gets some afternoon sun so it was never too hot to use. The beach chairs and umbrella came in handy when we went to the beach, and speaking of the beach, it was close-by and really nice. We walked at least a couple of miles per day on the beach. It was awesome. This was our first visit to Kihei and we will be back. (We usually go to Lahaina or Kaanapali) Weather forecast showed rain every day, but we never saw rain when we were there. Maybe it rained at night? The only thing I would suggest is a floor a/c unit or black out drapes in the bedroom. It got really hot during the day and didn't cool off until very late at night. Unit in the living room did keep the rest of the condo cool.

A & C

  • 5 of 5

As our daughter and family live in Kihei, we visit Maui once a year and stay in an area condo. We have never found a condo that we would want to return to---until this year! The owners of this condo have provided absolutely everything that one needs for an exceptional stay on Maui. It was extremely clean and beautifully decorated. The lanai is fantastic and feels like an extension of the living room. The generously sized table and six chairs is the perfect dining option for meals with an ocean view. The open concept kitchen adds to the spaciousness of the living area. A large kitchen island makes for a wonderful work space and there are 6 bar stools for some company while you cook! The kitchen is very well appointed. There is a corner window with a bamboo shade that gives extra light and provides another sunset view. We never once turned on the air conditioner because we found that the cross-ventilation was very good. The ceiling fans added a little extra that made the condo completely comfortable. We also appreciated having the second bathroom with a one bedroom condo. There was plenty of dresser and closet space in the bedroom. The Bosch washer and dryer were excellent. We also enjoyed taking the beach chairs provided by the owners to the beach across the street (along with a bottle of wine & appetizers) to enjoy the wonderful sunsets. The pool area at Kam Sands includes a hot tub as well as a children's pool (which our grandchildren enjoyed with us). The reserved parking spot is also close to the elevator. We found the location to be really wonderful. The condo unit is near a rear exit gate where one can make a left to get to the beach road or a right to access the highway about 3/4 of a mile away. We enjoyed restful sleep and it was a very quiet place to stay. The owners went out of their way to be accommodating to us and were very quick to answer our emails. They are just great to work with! We have already begun our plans to return next spring and rent this unit again!
