Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
Our family has been visiting Hawaii since the 1960's and when Sarah's mother moved from Alaska to Maui in 1974, Maui became our favorite family vacation spot. We have been so fortunate that our expanding family still gathers there every winter. Summers are spent in Anchorage, Alaska, with visits to California in spring and fall to see the grandchildren.
Owner purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Owner chose Kihei
Kamaole Sands has so many amenities that many other properties lack. The grounds are spacious and beautifully landscaped. The units are large and many boast beautiful garden and ocean views. We were so fortunate to find a top floor unit in Building 2 with beautiful ocean and garden views As grandparents we knew that Kamaole Sands was the best property we had visited in providing activities for children of all ages and more than met our needs for adult activities. Proximity to the beach was another important factor in choosing Kamaole Sands.
What makes this Condo unique
Kamaole Sands is one of the most popular properties on Maui for visitors. The central location is just minutes away from half a dozen golf courses. Shopping and restaurants are with walking distance and the best beaches on Maui are just across the street. Some of the popular amenities include, two spas (one for adults only), great swimming pool (covered at night to retain heat), fitness center, ping pong table, foosball, complimentary mai tai party poolside on Wednesdays with live local entertainment, beautiful tropical gardens and fabulous barbeque stations located throughout the property.

A little slice of Paradise.
Staying at this property was wonderful. Sarah was very responsive to all my questions. Her unit had everything we needed and more. This lovely condo is in such a great location in Kihei. The beach across the street is amazing. Our family spent every day at the beach and at the pool. The sunsets on the beach were amazing as were the sunrises. Really nice that they have life guards on this beach too. Having 5 and 10 yr old boys it really gave us piece of mind. We were able to relax and feel at home the 10 days we were there. We also had many adventures too. To name a few: Molokini Snorkel and Turtle Town on the Calypso, Atlantis submarine ride, sunset on top of Haleakalā, lunch at Mama’s Fish House and a sunset dinner at The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea(we hired a babysitter for two days so we could go out) Both restaurants were amazing for dates!!
The only one minor negative is that it was particularly hot the week we were there and there was not much of a breeze. In the condo. The one AC unit in the condo didn’t cool down all the rooms at night. I emailed with Sarah and she said she was going to add an additional AC unit this winter. Other than this minor thing we had a perfect time at Kamaole Sands and would love to return some day!!! It was pure paradise!!
The Perfect Vacation Rental!
It's hard to adequately describe how much we loved staying at Sarah's property! It was truly perfect for our 3 week family vacation on Maui. The location both on the island and within the community were ideal; you are just a short walk across the street from Kamaole III (amazing sunsets and snorkeling) and the views of both the ocean and the mountains from the lanai were ultra-relaxing. We truly loved the Kamaole Sands community as well! It was lovingly maintained and the staff were really professional and helpful. Wednesday free mai tai party at the pool was a cool touch! The pool complex was great as well and we spent dozens of hours there.
The unit: The easiest way to put it is that it felt like home. Honestly, it was nicer than home! We were really impressed with how high quality everything was and how well stocked the kitchen was. It had everything we could possibly need and more!
The spiral staircase lent this cool vibe to the whole place and everything was setup so it was a fully functioning and comfortable home.
The lanai was our favorite place to hang and we spent countless hours taking in the views.
If you have a larger family and are curious about the sofa bed: It was extraordinarily comfortable. We used it for 3 weeks and can vouch for how comfortable it was; so definitely rely on that as a comfortable bed for 2 more guests! (again with the high quality, you can just tell with the type of recliner chairs and sofa bed that they treat this as their home!)
We made great use of the four beach chairs, sand toys, beach towels, etc. And even paid it forward by leaving 3 brand-new sets of snorkels for the next guests to enjoy!
Sarah was wonderful to communicate with and extremely kind and flexible. I can't say enough nice things about her :)
There is no question that when we come back to Maui that we will be staying at this exact property again -- there's simply no need to look elsewhere when you've found the perfect property for your family.
Thanks again to Sarah!
Great location and great place
Close to everything. Big Beach, awesome beach across the street, close to shopping and a great Luau 5 minutes away
Great location with the best beach right in front of the property. Snorkeling is great with a wide variety of fish to see plus many turtle sightings! The condo was as described and had all that we needed. We put the coolers, beach chairs and umbrellas provided to good use!
Loved everything about the property and location.
Great overall experience. Super clean and nice property, well located and plenty of perfect beach amendities like beach chairs, umbrellas etc. The property owner was a pleasure to work with.
