Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our beautiful one bedroom condo is across from a large park and the best beach in Maui. The very dry climate means you are virtually guaranteed a spectacular sunset every evening. Our condo has a partial ocean view and is in easy walking distance to Kihei Village. Beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, and beach toys 'come and go', but we try to keep these items in stock at all times. We have an AC unit in the bedroom as well as the main unit in the living room.

We live nearby and check the condo often to make sure it is in perfect shape. The 2 bathrooms have been remodeled within the past 4 years and the kitchen was completely remodeled in August of 2013. The unique features of our baths and new kitchen make our unit an attractive selection.

About Steve Slater

I am from Florida originally, my wife from Oregon. We have both lived in Hawaii 25 years and were married in 2003. I lived in Hilo for my first 12 years in Hawaii. Along with dog Lucky and cats LB (Loverboy) and OK (Orange Kitty), we love the Maui aloha lifestyle.

Steve Slater purchased this condo in 2003

Why Steve Slater chose Maui

We literally live just up the street and keep a close eye on things at the condo. I did all the remodeling myself.

What makes this condo unique

If you are into a total relaxing vacation, perhaps you are not compelled to get in a car and drive for entertainment, you may find that you do not need a car to stay at our place - the location is that perfect.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Kamaole sands for our 10 year anniversary, which was the same place we stayed when we got married in Kihei 10 years ago. The bed was uber comfy, had all the amenities we could want (we cooked often) and was perfect location to the beach, restaurants and even Foodland. We arrived to a locked outdoor cabinet which contained the beach chairs and other beach necessities and called Steve. He was very responsive and quick. i would stay here again,

Clean Condo, Excellent Location, Nice Neighbors

  • 4 of 5

We found this wonderful condo on VRBO, and Steve was quick to respond with a great deal. The condo has a quiet spot with a lovely view of the ocean and the mountain both. You are not facing the ocean completely, but you are not paying those prices either, and the view turned out better than expected. There were beach chairs, boogie boards, an umbrella, snorkel, and fins. Steve did a wonderful job on the kitchen, which is spotless, and the middle bathroom has good stone work. The air conditioning was strong, but because of excellent airflow in the condo, we never needed it. Add a washer and dryer to boot, along with a massive, modern refrigerator, and you have a great nest for exploring the island. We love the fact that Kamaole Sands is basically at the south end of Kihei, so you can be just out of the busy areas, but close enough to walk to Kam III, II, I, and of course Da Kitchen or Maui Tacos.

Highly recommended!

Very nice renovated unit close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable unit with updated kitchen including granite countertops. Quiet location, easy walk to the beach, elevator, A/C (not used), ice maker, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. Excellent grilling facilities as well. Only recommendation would be to install a garbage disposal (minor point). Would stay in this unit again without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review Forrest. As per the garbage disposal - The Kamaole Sands management put out a memo strongly discouraging installation of new disposals due to the refuse clogging their main system, so when we did the remodel we left it out. Thanks again!

Lots of amenities and convenient to Kamaole 2 and 3!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 10-night stay in this condo! To list a few "cons" first... the bedroom dehumidifier helps keep the room cool but is very noisy and the water must be emptied frequently or will overflow. Also, the A/C in the living room blows hot air onto the lanai area so it's hard to have one person inside enjoying the A/C while the other person tries to enjoy the lanai outside - one or the other will be too hot! Finally, a small matter, but in the cupboard there was one container of salt, one oregano, and 5 bottles of pepper! We cooked many dinners during our stay and would have appreciated a small but varied selection of cooking spices.

On the other hand, this property has many "pros"... we really appreciated having the boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs/umbrella, and cooler to take to the beach! Also loved having a washer/dryer and nicely remodeled kitchen. The complex was beautifully landscaped and nicely kept up. Also, loved the pool, hot tubs and clean and convenient grill areas. The proximity to the beach(es) and the town of Kihei was also wonderful! (We even took a couple of long walks to Wailea!) Finally, the front desk staff was friendly and efficient and we checked in and out with ease. We had a very relaxing time and would recommend Kamaole Sands to friends!

Great place near ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in condo 33641 and can say, without a doubt, that it was the perfect place to call home during our vacation on Maui. It was very clean and attractively furnished. The kitchen had modern appliances and beautiful stone countertops, as well as an island/bar that provided plenty of space to prepare meals. It was well-stocked with everything we needed and more. The balcony was a lovely place to sit and relax and provided a place to dine outdoors. Located right across the street from a beautiful park with access to the beach made it a quick and easy walk to the ocean. It turned out to be a great place for snorkeling where we could get up close to fish and sea turtles. The park was a peaceful place to sit at the end of the day to enjoy the sunsets, which were memorable. We were also able to walk to many nice shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend it anyone and plan on returning as soon as possible.

This is just what we were looking for.....

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location—just across the street from a super, gentle

beach and park that attracts a friendly and wonderful mix of locals and tourists. The

beach is just perfect for swimming, even for the one of us who is a

reluctant swimmer. It’s easy walking distance to shopping, including very good, reasonably priced restaurants, drug store, health food stores and scooter rentals. We didn’t need a car for the week we stayed there (we are age 63 and 67 and like to walk). Condo area is well kept, very nice with a big pool area that is nicely maintained. The condo itself is back from the road, so it’s very quiet. We enjoyed the balcony, and there was a plentiful supply of beach chairs, boogie boards and various toys stashed in a closet outside. You can pack light and just enjoy. Kitchen is very well equipped, recently and tastefully remodeled and updated. Two bathrooms make it easy for two people to quickly shower for post-beach phase. The beds were very comfortable, including the hideabed in living room. There’s a locking screen on the front door, so you can have cross-ventilation if you don't want to turn on the air conditioning. It was cool enough even for a couple of Northwesterners, and we were there in June. If you’re lucky, you might be able to convince the owners to give you a mango or two if they’re ripe—they were easily the best mangos we have ever had in our lives. We’ll definitely be back.

The main attraction of course is the beach - one of Maui's nicest beaches is just a 5 minute walk from the elevator of the condo. Just above the beach is a nice park with padded playground/swings for little kids. There is a wide grass field, a popular spot for visitors and locals to take their lawn chairs and a drink to see the sunset. You are within walking distance of several restaurants and shops, and a full grocery store is about a mile down the road. Maui is full of arts and artists - there is plenty of top notch music going on somewhere nearby, for sure.
