Kamaole Sands is set in an ideal location among immaculately manicured 15 acres of tropical gardens, palms, fragrant flowers, an orchid wall, waterfalls and fountains.

Kama'ole Beach III is popular with visitors and locals alike. During peak hours the beach has lifeguard services. The gentle sloping of the beach makes it ideal for families. The waves on Kam Beach III offer consistency for beginner boogie boarders. It’s also a great beach for snorkeling, sunbathing and sand castle building. Another wonderful feature of Kam Beach III is the picturesque daytime and sunset views of Kaho'olawe, Molokini, Lana'i and West Maui. Above the beach is a large grassy area, perfect for kite flying, picnics, sunset watching and relaxing.

Within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and miles of world class beaches. Other nearby activities include world class golfing, snorkeling, body surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, whale watching during migration period and boating adventures (snorkeling, dinner cruises, etc.).

About Keren and Gary Yowell

Keren and Gary have been visiting Kamaole Sands for 20+ years; each time renting from a different owner. During our frequent vacations our family of five (plus Grandma) explored the resort, beaches of South Maui, beach town of Kihei and all that Maui offers. These times were well spent making happy memories. With our boys now grown we decided it was time to fulfill a long time dream to own a part of Kamaole Sands. We invite you to share in the magic of Maui.

Keren and Gary Yowell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Keren and Gary Yowell chose Maui

Our family fell in love with South Maui for it beaches, sunny disposition, the relaxed beach town of Kihei and its upscale neighbor Wailea. It never crossed or minds to stay anywhere else other than Kamaole Sands because we felt comfortable and relaxed in the resort's large, well-cared for grounds and its central location to everything we enjoy in South Maui.

What makes this condo unique

Having rented throughout Kamaole Sands we were excited when it came time to purchase that we could obtain a ground floor unit in Building 7. We appreciate being able to bypass the elevators and having a view and easy access to the inner court. Another benefit to Building 7 is a solar orientation making cool and comfortable condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Guest stated they had stayed previously at Wailea Hotel and a private cottage yet they preferred Kamaole Sands.

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many condo units at Kamaole Sands, and this is one of the better ones. The location is good, the owners were great to work with, and the condo is updated and clean. I would definitely come back to this condo.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great unit! Reservations were quick and easy with the owners. So close to everything you'll ever need.. Walking distance to the beach was great, and the grounds were immaculate. The pool was perfect and the Wednesday happy hour was a fun time. Clean, comfortable unit with everything you'd need in a home away from home. Highly recommended!

Excellent location, nice personal touches

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Kamoale Sands and would recommend Keren and Gary's condo to couples and families looking for a good location and a well-appointed condo. Many personal touches were evident from the welcome note, shopping tote bag and a nice clean unit with upgraded features. The condo was nicely equipped including beach chairs, boogie boards, a wall safe and other details that not all condos always offer. Kamaole Sands is a well maintained property with a spacious pool area and a lot of BBQ's that are used by many but there was never a problem getting one to use. The family atmosphere is ideal if you value your days outdoors and quiet evenings. The location is directly across from Kamaole Beach III, a beautiful location with beautiful sunsets!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely LOVED the location of this condo. Being situated in the middle of the complex, it was EXTREMELY easy to get to BBQ area (located within steps from the Lanai), less than a minute's walk to the pool and is right across the street from the beach. Condo itself is outfitted with everything you might want or need - beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and even some snorkeling equipment. Highly recommended !

Owner's Response: Aloha James, Much mahalo for your review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and made good use of the amenities we share with our guests. We have enjoyed many lovely dinner at the "hibiscus" grill. The resort does an amazing job of daily cleaning the grills and nice, large tables... plus there is a nice peek-a-boo view of the ocean. It was a feature we hadn't expected when we purchased our unit. We truly do have an excellent location in the resort! Thanks for staying with us! Next time we will make sure Mother Nature is more cooperative... though the rain Maui received was much needed. Mahalo nui loa, Keren and Gary

Stop looking, this is it!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is it, stop reading and book! Not only is it beautiful and centrally located, but the owners are a dream to work with. I have been using VRBO for the last 3 years and have never had a problem. This trip was the best yet. This condo was home for the past week and it will be home again any time my family can get to Maui. Literally, it's less than 5 minute walk to the beach and there were beach chairs, boogie boards and toys for our use. The kitchen had everything I needed and more (it's my vacation , too ;) ). There are restaurants within walking distance and many water activities nearby. Maholo, Gary and Keren for helping me make this Christmas dream come true for my family. It's one, we will never forget.

Great location, amenities, kids loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing condo! Can walk across the street to the beach ( short stroll even with a 2&4 year old). One of my favorite parts of this condo is the carpet in the living room which made for a cozy place for the kids to relax after a fun day. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking. The other stand out amenities are the beds! Plush mattress, pillows and sheets. Overall a great location! Owners are friendly and easy to work with.
