About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Welcome to our spacious, bright and clean upgraded 1-bedroom/2-bathroom condo in one of the best condominium resorts in South Kihei. The unit (6-109) is located 60-70 feet from the pool and jet spas, 100-120 feet from an excellent free parking space, and 3-min easy walk from Kamaole III Beach - one of the best Maui beaches. This is a ground floor unit, so you will not need elevators or hallways, and the tropical garden is just one step from your lanai. The location and convenience of this unit is hard to beat, yet it is very private and quiet! Relax and experience Maui.

The condo has plenty of convenient sleeping options: a king bed in the bedroom, a queen Murphy bed and a queen pull-out sofa in the living room all have new mattresses (2008). In-unit washer/dryer, air-conditioner, two cable TV's, a free high-speed Internet and a fully stocked kitchen will make you feel completely at home. Large lanai is equipped with a big round table, four chairs and a lounge chair.

We have beach chairs and umbrella for you and some sand toys for your kids. Linens and towels are provided by our on-site management company. We offer late check-outs at 1/2 of the nightly rate for stays over 10 days.

What you will find on-site: a complimentary breakfast orientation on your first full day in Maui; a pool-side Mai Tai party each Wednesday with live Hawaiian music and dances; a complimentary fitness center; Pleasant Holidays Activity Desk in the lobby; two pools and two jet spas; nine barbecue areas with picnic tables; four complimentary tennis courts.

Our beach - Kamaole Beach Park III - is one of Maui's best beaches and a locals' favorite. It has sandy areas to swim, rocks to snorkel, trees for shade, and the most consistent waves in South Maui to boogie board. It also has a lifeguard. Visitors and locals come here to watch sunsets every evening, and it's a great place to watch for whales during the season.

About Elena Kounitski

Hello! We are Igor and Elena Kounitski, and we own two condos in Kamaole Sands. Both condos are on the ground floor in adjacent buildings 6 and 7, making it easy to book both if you more than one condo. We love Maui and we'll be thrilled to have you stay with us!

Why Elena Kounitski chose Kihei

Located in the only one "resort" condominium complex in South Kihei with beautiful tropical grounds. Centrally located withing the complex with the lanai overlooking the vast and colorful courtyard. The condo is on the ground floor, which is a huge convenience. You step on the grass into the tropical garden right from your own lanai.

What makes this condo unique

Right across the pool and yet very private - a unique combination that makes this condo very special and rare. The large lanai allows to have a chaise lounge, and we have a very nice one with a side table - relax, read, drink your morning cup of coffee or enjoy the Hawaiian music during the Mai Tai party right on your lanai. Plus, the condo is fully remodeled with an open kitchen and tile floors throughout. Plus, we have an additional queen Murphy bed (3rd bed) that easily folds up during the day to allow to have all that space for entertainment.

We were entirely delighted with this ideally-located and well-maintained condo. There is direct proximity to the large swimming pool and concierge desk (take advantage of their orientation and assistance with nearly everything), easy access to a series of beaches across the street, and it is minutes from nearly any activity or adventure you might want in South or West Maui. The Murphy bed in the living room is just as comfortable as the queen bed in the master, two bathrooms (both with roomy showers) are a real plus, and parking is handy for carrying things into and out of the condo. We would gladly come back here!

Would love to stay here again

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and well stocked on arrival. Loved the location in Kihei and where it was in the complex. The extra large lanai was a plus! Easy parking and easy walking to beach,restaurants and grocery store. The beds were comfortable and the Murphy bed was fantastic for two friends traveling together( no one had to sleep on a pull out! ) The owner was fantastic to work with, fast to respond. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Thanks Elena for sharing your Maui home.

Fantastic location and great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was everything we expected and more. The beach right across the street was the rocks and the finest sand I've ever felt! Boogie boarding right before sunset was perfect. Central location to everything. The condo location was great too...easy access to the pool! The condo and the grounds are well maintained. The only downside, at least for my 17 year old, was that the wifi didn't extend to the bedroom.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a great review! Sorry about the wifi not working in the bedroom. It normally does, sometimes all it takes is to reboot the router - unplug and plug back in a minute.

Our stay at kamaole sands was fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described and was well maintained and inviting. Elena our host provided every detail before our arrival which made check in and becoming acclimatized very easy. The bed was very comfortable and so was the Murphy bed. The position of the condo was very convenient for the pool and made it very easy for the kids. The location of the condo is by one of the best family beaches in Maui and you can easily walk to the beach. The condo was stocked with great beach chairs and umbrellas which was very much appreciated.I would definitely stay at this condo again.

Beautiful condo, perfect location steps from pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation and loved this condo. The large lanai with the comfy lounging chair was so nice. Our kids age 4 and 6 could run and play on the grass right outside our door while we relaxed. Loved the location, we could go back and forth to the pool easily which is just a few steps away. We could peak over the fence while the kids ran back themselves to grab anything they forgot. The condo was clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed. We wouldn't hesitate to stay in this unit again, hope to be back soon :)

Great location in a very well kept complex

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a great location in Maui - close to wonderful beaches and restaurants and so easy to get around. The condo itself is ground level and right next to the pool - depending on what you want this can be a positive or negative. We were a single couple with our 24 yrs old son. The pool can get very noisy with lots of little ones. The first week we were there it was pretty crazy busy but it died down after that. The condo is well equipped and the murphy bed is very comfortable. Condo could use a fresh coat of paint but other then that it was awesome. We had no major problems but when we told Elena -owner- that an outlet was not working she had someone over to repair it right away. Elena was a pleasure to deal with and we got exactly what we expected. The grounds themselves were gorgeous and well looked after. We had a complete enjoyable stay and would recommend.

We have a 90-day cancellation policy in winter (mid-December - mid-April), and 60-day cancellation policy for the rest of the year. VRBO doesn't have this choice for us to display. With a 60-day winter cancellation notice we would have less chances to re-book as flights get expensive, and so with VRBO policy should you have a cancellation after the 60-day cut-off, there would be no refunds. With our 90-day winter cancellation, the chances of re-booking are higher.

If you cancel before the deadline, we will refund your original booking deposit less a cancellation fee of $200.

If you cancel after the deadline, we will refund all funds that we can recover by re-booking less a cancellation fee of $200.

We highly recommend buying trip protection for your peace of mind, as most reservations in our experience happen after the cancellation deadline.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
