About the property

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, and TVs in both living and bedroom.

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.

Terrific experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at units in Kamaole Sands in the past and this was by far the best experience we've had. The location away from the noisy pool area was great. The supplementary air conditioning in the bedroom was a real bonus. We've never had that luxury before and it made a huge difference in "sleepability." Everything in the unit was great, comfortable, functional, clean and made our stay totally relaxing. We would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting a top-notch location in the wonderful area of Kihei.

Nice remodel of the condo, well appointed, good view of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in great condition, nice view of the ocean from the Lanai, had a wonderful time! The owner did a great job with the remodel of the kitchen and bathrooms. There were boogie boards, beach chairs and snorkel gear to use which was very helpful. The owner was great to work with and even had a nice welcome gift for us of a tin of shortbread cookies. The only downside was that we eventually had to go back home! :-)

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!

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.
