Perfect Home Away from Home Penthouse Condo

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Our condo, in desirable Building 5, Unit #401, is located at Kamaole Sands in sunny south Kihei just steps away from Kamaole Beach III, which has been rated one of Maui's most spectacular and family-friendly beaches.

Proud of our Home Away From Home we invite you to share it with us as well as experience the magical, tropical island called Maui. Enjoy a day lounging at the resort or play in the surf and sand at Kamaole III Beach Park where the ocean is warm and the surf is gentle creating a year-round water park that is perfect for any age. Or spend a day exploring the island with popular destinations like the Maui Ocean Center and Lahaina within a short drive. Just minutes away, you'll find world-class shopping and dining in Wailea and Kihei.

An elevator will whisk you to our unit, an end unit, located on the fourth (top) floor, which is often referred to as a 'Penthouse'. Because we are an end unit you are guaranteed quiet. An added large side window, afforded only end units, gives our condo a light and airy feeling and after being in the sun you can choose to cool down with the air conditioning or enjoy the wonderful island breeze. Lounge on the lanai and enjoy views of the ocean and lush tropical grounds while experiencing the breathtaking sunsets.

The fully equipped kitchen, stocked with all the utensils and amenities needed, gives you the flexibility to prepare your meals or make a picnic for the beach. There are also five barbeque pavilions--equipped with picnic tables, lights and multiple Weber gas grills--located conveniently throughout the property. All that is needed is for you to stock the refrigerator by visiting any of the local markets or food stores such as Safeway or Foodland located nearby.

The living room provides you with a sofa bed where you can curl up and catch the latest news or weather reports on the new 48 inch flat screen TV with blue ray disc player or you can turn on the CD player and listen to your favorite music while watching the sunset.

The upstairs loft bedroom, located at the top of the beautiful spiral staircase, welcomes you with a new king size bed and a full master bath. The second bedroom, located on the main level, has a queen bed and a twin bed as well as an adjacent full bathroom. From this bedroom you can witness the quiet majesty of a Haleakala sunrise. All bed and bath linens are provided.

Our condo uses the latest security technology with a Keyless Entry System. We do not provide keys to our guests as all access is controlled by access codes, which EXPIRE AFTER EACH RENTAL. You do not need to worry about keys being copied, driving to a rental office when you arrive, losing keys at the beach, or meeting at the property to let others in. Our guests love this system, and we know that you will too!

The complex is beautiful and the lush tropical grounds are meticulously maintained. The outstanding amenities onsite include an expansive pool with two hot tubs, a wading pool for the wee ones, exercise facilities as well as an Activity Center to help you book your island activities. The resort also hosts complementary Mai Tai parties with live entertainment weekly by the pool. You can rest easy with the 24/7 property management company assistance if needed.

Whether you are visiting Maui for some much needed rest and recreation, attending a wedding or honeymooning we would be delighted to share our home-away-from-home with you.

Why Laurel Adam chose Maui

After visiting Maui for many years we decided it was time to own a small piece of paradise. We chose Kamaole Sands for the immaculate property, view of the ocean and the wonderful atmosphere of South Kihei. With everything you could ask for at your fingertips, from championship golf courses to delectable restaurants and world class shopping, Kamaole Sands and South Kihei was a wise choice.

Summer in "Paradise"

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from another wonderful stay in this lovely condo. It never seems long enough even though we stay several weeks. The location is perfect and we don't run out of fun things to do and new restaurants to try. Our grandsons became certified PADI divers this year, getting training through B & B Dive shop in Kihei. They are a favorite with my husband and now with the boys. It is a pleasure working with the owner, Laurel. Both she and Carol go out of their way To make our vacation a pleasure.. We hope to return soon.

This is our 5th time staying at Kamaole Sands.

All previous units rented were average to excellent.

This unit was fair, if not poor.

Fridge leaked enough to soak a full towel by morning.

Dishwasher was old and tray damaged that did not slide well.

Coffeemaker smelled musty.

Bed outer covers were old and I am sure not washed in a long time.

Beach Toys provided in Lanai were generally old or broken. Chairs were old but worked. Two beach umbrellas were old and bent but functional.

The lighting in the main floor bedroom consisted of a single bed side light.... too dark to read, or pack/unpack suitcases in evening.

Blinds in bedrooms are old and didn't function very well.

Furniture was old and just felt dirty.

Painting equipment was stored in the bottom of food cabinet.

Front door has not been painted in a long time. I wold not have mentioned something as minor as this but it was indeed not very inviting to open.

Poor lighting in upstairs bedroom.

Air conditioner was old old. Its air input via Lania was covered in beach toys and dust.

Only one ceiling fan in entire unit. The 4 other units rented by family members on the same vacation each had 3. The unit did have 4 big floor fans that worked but were bulky.

Front screen door was not lockable and would not stay open.

Under one bed had never been dusted in a long time.

Of the 4 other units rented during this family vacation ours was an embarrassment. Truly. I am glad other family members ended up with nice places as this was their first time to Maui and I know they would have been really disappointed with this one.

Silverware needs upgrading....just getting too old Laurel. Cutting knifes were dull. I had to wash all dishes as some were sticky. Door under sink did not shut tight. Etc.

On the plus side...this unit had a great view of pool, had a 4th floor breeze, was quiet, had a guitar....

Owner's Response: We are sorry that this guest felt the condo was disappointing. As previous guests can attest this condo is well maintained and is quite comfortable. I have been made aware that the fridge has been leaking condensation from the back of the unit and will be addressed when I am at the condo in May. I must say that all the furniture, except the twin bed, is new furniture within the last 3 years, including the lanai chairs. The beach toys, etc that are left in the lanai closet by past guests are gone through and broken things are disposed of every time I am over at the condo. These items are left by guests and not by the owner. There are, indeed, three overhead fans in the condo; one in the living room area, one in the upstairs loft bedroom and one in the main floor bedroom and they work well and are maintained on a yearly basis. Again, the blinds are new within the last three years and will be assessed when I am over at the condo in Maui as I am sure the wear and tear on them shows in time. The same can be said for the silverware and kitchen utensils. The coffee pot was bought new less than a year ago and will be upgraded again in May. The front screen door was repaired last year and the main door painted the year before. The lighting in the bedroom on the main floor and the upstairs loft bedroom are indeed lamps as the condo was built with no lighting on the ceiling, just the ceiling fans. The air conditioning unit was replaced 2 years ago and works well as long as there is nothing piled on top of it in the lanai closet. As for the dust and sand in the lanai closet that is an ongoing issue. We provide many fans to assist in keeping the condo cool. Again, we are sorry that you were disappointed with your stay.

Awesome value in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 stayed here for 10 days in February. We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful resort and wonderful condo. It had all the comforts of home and its open floor plan and layout made it great for our large family. Laurel was great to work with and everything was handled in a very professional way. She helped make our trip a very memorable one and went above and beyond to accommodate us.

We hope to come back again in the near future!! Thanks Laurel!

My family of 5(mother n law&father n law husband and daughter and I) loved this condo at Kamaole Sands. It was clean and perfect location, top floor corner to view pool and surrounding views. The condo worked well with 2 bedrooms & bathrooms and well stocked with beach supplies. The owner is so nice and helpful cant wait to come back to Maui. Mahalo
