Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to thank you for renting your gorgeous home to us.

We had a fantastic time! Your home was perfect for our family. Everyone had plenty of personal space as well as plenty of space for gathering together.

We appreciated your well stocked kitchen! And a very generous supply of towels!

Everything was wonderful!

The view is beyond words!

At most anytime we looked, we could see whales spouting and playing around.

Also... Several sea turtles came right up on the beach.... And numerous turtles came on the beach just south of the grounds of the Sands.... Where the rocks are...

Your home is so beautiful and sooooo comfortable!

If we ever get to go back to Maui, we will certainly check with you to see if we can rent from you again...

We all wanted to refuse to leave..... :-).

We enjoyed the island... Powered hang gliding in Hana, the road to Hana, going to the blow hole .... And all the sights on that route, Ultimate Whale Watch, snorkeling (Bob's Snorkeling.... To get the prescription goggles), swimming in the ocean, Haleakala, sea turtles, mixed lunch plates, fish tacos, gelato, Honolulu Cookies, Ono shave ice.... And so much more.

This vacation will be a fantastic lifelong memory for all five of us!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay in. The condo was beautiful, clean and had breathtaking views. The amenities that were already there as well as the available beach items at our disposal made the vacation relaxing and enjoyable. As my son said when we got there, "why did you have to rent such a beautiful place? I might not want to leave the condo."

Owner's Response: Thanks, Joanne! We're so happy that you found our penthouse as beautiful and comfortable as we do! The views of two islands and the amazing sunsets cannot be beat anywhere on Maui and having all the amenities- big and small- present makes a vacation so much more carefree!

Great location. Very well appointed condo with incredible views! Turtles, Whales, Surf, and Sun!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 adults and 3 older teens. The condo was a perfect fit for all us. The kitchen was well equiped. There were plenty of beach towels, and beach toys. We used the beachside Sands of Kahana gas grills for cooking when we weren't eating out. Those that snorkeled saw turtles every time. Those that didn't could see the turtles from the lanai. We also saw whales breaching and spouting! Everyone in our group agrees we will be coming back again!

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you loved our penthouse enough to return next time you visit Maui! We hope you'll return and enjoy the complete kitchen and 3 bath remodel that we have scheduled for April, 2018! It's hard to imagine better views of the sunsets, sunrises, neighboring islands and of course, our favorites- the turtles and whales. We enjoy providing lots of beach supplies and toys for our guests and a very well-stocked kitchen with everything you could possibly need for those who enjoy cooking.

Maui Beachfront Condo

Spacious condo with a fantastic view.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed how large our penthouse is- 2700 square feet is one of the largest condos in Maui! The views are indeed fantastic- you can't get any closer to the ocean without being in it and the sunsets are our particular favorites. From our lanais( there are 3) you can see Molokai and Lanai, with the sun setting between them most of the year!

A Glorious Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent two beautiful weeks in this condo and it was perfect! It was comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed including beach toys and snorkel gear. Cindy was a pleasure to work with and the booking process was very easy. One of the highlights was watching the turtles from our balcony. It was tough to leave!

Owner's Response: We are so delighted that you enjoyed our penthouse! It's hard to beat those amazing oceanfront views and sunsets and the feeling of being right above the glorious Maui shoreline! We're pleased that you noticed how hard we work to see that everything is kept thoroughly clean and that you enjoyed the extra touches like our beach closet and the Maui- made soaps and shampoos we provide. Do come back and visit again!

Above and Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 glorious weeks in your beautiful condo and really didn't want to leave. We had a very long day - arrived at the condo and found it to far exceed our expectations. The rooms are so spacious and have very nice furniture. It was a big plus having 3 bathrooms! The double sinks in each bathroom, plus having the toilet and shower separate, were great features also (really nice big showers)!! The view from the lanai(one of three) was spectacular - every evening we enjoyed gorgeous sunsets and watched the big sea turtles swim very close to shore. The water was calm so paddle boarding for my granddaughters was great. The grounds are well kept and not overcrowded. We have stayed on all the Hawaiian islands and by far our best choice yet was choosing Bill and Cindy's condo!! I would come back here in a heartbeat! This unit is so well stocked with everything you might possibly need. Lots of towels, beach towels, linens, etc., and some kitchen appliances that I don't even have! We searched for quite awhile before we decided to stay here and I must say it was the BEST decision we could have made. Being on the eighth floor and in a corner unit facing the ocean is unbeatable. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room throughout the condo. Bill and Cindy Vinson are wonderful people to work with - very prompt on replies to e-mails and even called once we arrived to make sure everything was okay. Great owners of a great condo! I HIGHLY recommend staying here - you most certainly won't regret it! Very convenient location on the West side of Maui. We will certainly stay here again!!

Sands of Kahana

  • 5 of 5

I have just finished a seven day stay at this magnificent condo in Kahana Maui. I have extensive experience at multiple properties on all of the islands of Hawaii and I have to say this condo is the Babe Ruth Home Run....this is the best of the best!!!!! It just can't get any better.

It is a large comfortable home with the perfect view and the perfect lay out. The kitchen is fully equipped with whatever a cook or chef might need to create a wonderful meal..and there are multiple BB stations on the property. The beds are comfortable and each room permits a wonderful serenade of the sound of the ocean. The home has all of the ocean gear necessary for a fun time on the beach. The beach here is dozens of times better than that of the Ritz down the road and better than most beaches you will experience on the island. I tried snorkeling, spear fishing, and kayaking, while others were surfing (a bit out to sea) sail boarding,and doing other ocean sports. It is a great home for a family get away and or a get away for couples and /or friends It is an easy drive to golf courses, other beaches, and to multiple restaurants a island shopping. It is convenient to all island adventures and a pedestrian friendly area also! The complex is sophisticated and quiet. You will be able to relax, decompress and have whatever adventure suits your heart. Bill and Cindy have been thorough, direct and professional in all of their dealings with me.

There is a difference between a flower and a Gem. This condo is a gem. Don't pass up the opportunity!!!
