About Judy

Joe and I were married in 1960 as teenagers. As a child I dreamed of going to Hawaii one day but never thought I would make it let alone have a place of our own there. Our first trip to Hawaii was in 1974. Over the years we spent time on all the islands but always went back to Maui. Maui no ka oi (Maui is the best)

Judy purchased this condo in 1990

Why Judy chose Maui

We vacation rented at Sands of Kahana when it was still under construction. We loved the views and the spaciousness of the condos. We loved the area, the quiet and the location half way between Kaanapali and Kapalua. It was a dream come true to finally own there.

What makes this condo unique

In front of the condo we can see sea turtles pop their heads up and swim along. To the left we can watch surfers from our lanai and to the right, on windy days, watch wind and kite surfers. When the whales are there you can watch them without even leaving the condo. At night the moon over the ocean is breathtaking and we can constantly hear the ocean waves. As many times as I've been there, I still get excited even seeing ads about Maui.

Amazing Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from staying for 7 days! Where do I start... the view is breathtaking and the condo is stocked perfectly for anything you want. Had chairs, boogie boards, floats, ice chest. Etc. The beach is walking distance and the restaurant and bar downstairs is just perfect. The beds were heavenly and we will be back! If you want a central location with it all, pick this condo!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This place has the best views, period. It has 2 rooms with balconys and can hear the waves even when the doors are closed. Place is a little outdated, but all works, has plenty of towels and many beach boards, tubes, cushions and more chairs. There is places to grill downstairs and a great restaurant for this venue. Saw dolphins and many giant turtles. Can also see two other islands from here. Was beautiful and so relaxing.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the best condo we have stayed at in Maui. From both the guest lanai and the main lanai, the ocean view is breathtaking. We could watch sea turtles swim in the water from the lanai.

The condo is so spacious- we were with another couple and had more than enough privacy. Both bedrooms feel like master suites with their own large bathrooms and lanais, so there were no hard feelings when choosing a bedroom. Both of the beds were large and very comfortable.

Having a full kitchen was great to cook some meals at the condo and eat out on the lanai. There was also a very large dining room table to eat at inside.

Lastly, the grounds of the condo and the beach &pool are great as well if you don't feel like leaving the property every day.

This condo feels like a home away from home- can't wait to come back. Communication was easy,fast,&pleasant with the host.

Really enjoyed it!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples visiting Hawaii for the first time, ending our trip with 5 days on Maui. We were delighted with the condo! It was spacious, clean and in a good location. It was well-equipped with towels, kitchen supplies and even some extras like an iron, beach chairs and snorkel equipment. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms were huge! The lanai was the best part, with wonderful views of the ocean, the islands and the whales. We also got to see a few sea turtles that came ashore just up the beach. The beach itself is not large but the water was fine to swim or snorkel in. The condo complex has a nice pool, lounge chairs and a bar/restaurant that served good food. There's also a concierge service that we didn't use, but they seemed very eager to help if we needed it.

The only complaint we had, and it's a small one, is the need for a shelf in the shower for shampoo, razor, etc.

We're probably not going back to Hawaii but we would recommend this place to someone traveling there!

Whales, rainbows, or turtles?

  • 5 of 5

As we are sitting on the lanai taking a break from the sun and reflecting on our visit so far, would it be a complaint to say the double rainbow that sprang up right in front of this place interfered with our view of the waves rolling in? Probably not. Aside from the multitude of double rainbows, another minor flaw about the Sands of Kahana beach is the sea turtles carelessly taking up good sun bathing spots on the beach. Rude. It would be nice to sleep in on vacation but the sound of the waves rolling in all day and all night make that impossible. Who wants to wake up to that?? Would we ever come back? We don't ever want to leave!! Good thing we have 6 more nights to enjoy this perfect place. We will be able to go to fleetwoods, miso phat sushi, see more rainbows, lay on the beach next to the turtles, and listen to the waves and try to figure out how we will ever be able to do this again. We will! Another outstanding musician we saw was Willie K. It was a performance of ukulele and guitar that I'm glad we happened upon but is worth seeing more than once.

Thank you Judy!!!
