About the property

Building 7, Ground Floor, 1 BD, 2 BA, Full Kitchen, A/C, 3 minutes to Beach

Put up your “out of office” message and place a hold on the mail: your laid-back Hawaiian vacation awaits at this 1 Bedroom, 2 bath condo in the popular Kamaole Sands resort. (Your wallet will feel relaxed, too, thanks to our affordable rates.)

Memories are just waiting to be made here! When you look back, you'll remember the sand and surf of Kamaole III Beach just across the street, the amazing resort amenities, and the beauty of Maui.


The ground-floor unit sits in a highly sought-after building in the inner courtyard, with incredible views of the lushly-landscaped grounds.

Inside, tasteful island décor includes local art and Hawaiian accents throughout. Spend quiet nights relaxing in the living room with cozy couch that doubles as a sleeper sofa for the kids or extra guests. Open the sliding glass doors and let the inside and outside merge. The covered lanai offers shade and a place to lounge, dine or watch the kids play in the grassy area.

From gourmet meals to beach snacks, the fully-equipped kitchen has everything you need for meal prep. Along with full-size appliances, you have all the cookware, dishes, and pantry basics you’ll need. Sit down to meals at the four-person table adjacent to the kitchen.

Drift off into dreamland in the bedroom, where a queen bed is outfitted with tropical bedding and a large window offers a tropical garden. The en-suite bathroom has a tub and shower combination. Another full bathroom provides additional getting-ready space with a large vanity and shower.

When the tropical sun is at its hottest, the trade winds sweep in to offer relief from the heat. You’ll also stay comfortable thanks to A/C and ceiling fans in the living room and master bedroom.

Pack your flip-flops and swimsuit—we’ll take care of everything else with a list of amenities to make you feel at home goes on and on…stackable washer and dryer, on-island contact available 24/7, bath towels, and bed linens. You also have access to everything you need for the beach including over-sized beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, ice chests, and sand toys.


Kamaole Sands resort boasts over 15 acres of tropical grounds including palm trees, plumeria trees, orchid walls, birds of paradise and fountains.

Hang out by the large pool with plenty of deck chairs to relax. There’s also two hot tubs, a kiddie pool, gym, tennis courts, and ping pong. The on-site concierge is your go-to for island excursions and local restaurant recommendations. Join the free Wednesday Mai Tai party and enjoy live Hawaiian music and fun couples and families alike.


Right across the street, Kamaole III Beach offers family-friendly fun including swimming, boogie boarding, snorkeling, turtle sightings, and sandcastle-building. The beach has lifeguards and a spacious grassy area for front row seats to the spectacular sunsets.

We’re situated on the sunny, dry side of Maui, putting you near some of the best beaches in Hawaii. There's so many, you could visit a different beach each day! Spend one day relaxing and sunbathing and the next getting an adrenaline rush boogie boarding, surfing, and stand up paddle boarding.

Kihei Town is laid-back and low-key with dining, nightlife, and shopping, most within walking distance. Just one mile away is Wailea, known for its world-class resorts, beaches, dining, golf courses and spas.

Our Hawaiian Tax ID # is W632982559-01.

Our On-Island Contact is Edy Daniel of Maui Vacation Rental Support. During your stay she is available on island to assist with your needs. We are always available, too!

Note: The resort is undertaking the task of painting all exteriors of buildings over two phases in April to November 2017 and April to November 2018. This beautification project will temporarily disrupt our normal resort ambiance. Our building is scheduled for 2018; the exact dates are yet unknown and during the painting project we will not accept bookings . This project will also temporarily suspend assigned parking and an open parking system has been implemented to ease parking during this time. We apologize for this inconvenience as the resort makes this valuable improvement.

About Keren and Gary Yowell

We visited Kamaole Sands Resort for 25+ years. To share in our experience was our three sons and Grandma. During our many vacations, we explored the resort, beaches, Kihei Town and all that Maui offers. We felt so comfortable at Kamaole Sands and on Maui that we couldn't help but return year after year. Soon we began to dream of owning our own unit and sharing it with others. With our boys grown we decided we could give our dream wings. We have enjoyed creating a comfortable and economical space to share with couples and families. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to share it with you and yours!

Keren and Gary Yowell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Keren and Gary Yowell chose Kihei

It never crossed our mind to choose any other resort than Kamaole Sands. We had visited it so many times that it became a home to our family. The resort grounds are spacious, beautiful and well cared for. Kamaole Beach Park is across the street and it is one of the best family beaches in South Maui. The property grounds are easy to walk, no steep inclines, flat paths throughout. A front desk awaits arrivals 24/7, 365 days a year. The resort offers great amenities like a large pool, kiddie pool, two hot tubs, tennis courts, small workout room, concierge activity desk, a snack cart at the pool and many more.

What makes this condo unique

Building 7, in our humble opinion, is the perfect location in the resort. From our front door it's an easy 3 minute walk to the beach. And less of a walk to the the pool. Other features we appreciate is bypassing the elevators, having a view and easy access to the inner court, and the solar orientation makes our unit cool and comfortable. Another plus is the size of the Kamaole Sands units are so much more spacious than than the pricey resorts. For example, our one bedroom, two bath unit boasts 818 square feet, which is more than double many hotel rooms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We both agreed that we have been thoroughly spoiled by staying in your lovely and well located unit. We love the privacy that your place offers, and the fact that everything is so accessible to us, for example the beach, the barbecue, the lovely gardens from the lanai. We don't have many people walking by at night-------and the bed is SO COMFY.

Great Condo, Great Owners, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

First off, Keren was wonderful to work with, quick to respond to all of our questions and very attentive to our needs to be sure we were enjoying our stay.

The condo itself was updated and very well decorated. It was extremely clean and the layout was perfect for us. We were supplied with everything we needed on the trip, beach chairs, beach towels, a boogie board, and assorted beach accessories. The kitchen was very well furnished, it had everything we needed and more. The bathrooms had good water pressure, always a plus for us. The bedroom was air conditioned and the bed was very comfortable. Also it was nice to have a safe to lock away valuables. The living room was also air conditioned and was big enough to relax in after a long day of activity.

The location in the complex was handy, 3-5 minutes to Kamaole III beach. The pool was close and the BBQ area was even closer. The complex itself was very well maintained. The grounds were lush and the exterior has been freshly painted (some still in progress).

We've been to Maui four times and this is the first time we've stayed in Kihei and really enjoyed it. Its close to the airport , Wailea, and many very nice beaches.

All in all we highly recommend this condo and the Kihei area and think you will enjoy your stay there, as we did.

Owner's Response: Much Mahalo for your informative review chocked full of valuable points. We feel so lucky to have the best guests; we enjoyed our communications with you from reservation to check out!. Gary and I agree that once we found Kihei it was like finding that sweet spot: a great low key beach town, near fabulous beaches and upscale Wailea. KamSands Resort just makes it all so easy to enjoy! So proud that you enjoyed our brand of service and accommodation! We hope to have you back soon! Until next time, Aloha! Keren

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

It's no secret why Keren and Gary get high reviews; they are wonderful and attentive hosts. A couple of minor snafus occurred during our stay and they fixed them right away. I hope to return to this particular condo; I was that impressed. The unit has all the appliances that you need and Kamaole Sands seems to be the best enclave of buildings in Kihei. The lush, vast courtyard exceeded my expectations. It's so spread out, giving all guests enough room to roam without disturbing the peace. And The birds chirping all day was so relaxing.

Owner's Response: Aloha Melissa, much mahalo for your sweet review and thanks so much for being our eyes and ears on the ground and alerting us to the fridge failing. It was the last of the appliances to be replaced since we purchased the condo. I'm pleased that our on-island crew was at the ready to purchase and install a brand new fridge the next morning! We truly work together to ensure our guests have a great stay. KamSands truly is a great resort with 15 acres so that guests have plenty of area to enjoy. We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves and look forward hearing from you again! Mahalo nui loa, Keren and Gary

Absolutely loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful, clean condo for the last part of our Maui trip. The condo is fully equipped with everything you might need for a relaxing vacation. The owners are super helpful with recommendations and answer promptly any questions you have. It's a great location, close to the pool, which our 16 month old son absolutely loved, and a short walk from a beautiful beach and some restaurants. Thank you for providing a wonderful home away from home, we loved it!

Best Maui Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Keren and Gary's Kamaole Sands condo and were so pleased by the cleanliness, the beauty and the convenient location. We enjoyed the comfy memory foam top queen bed, and the fans in the rooms to keep the air circulating. The furnishing in each room were lovely, reflecting the Island style, and all in good working order. Kitchen was great for fixing a quick breakfast before a day snorkeling in the nearby coves.The conod beach chairs, umbrella, towels, were appreciated. The unit was quiet, and peaceful. Even though the condo buildings were being painted while we were there, our stay was not disturbed by the activity and work. The Lanai was a great breakfast nook where we could listen to the rambunctious birds, watch people, and enjoy the beauty of the Kamaole Sands landscaping - which is impressive in it's beauty and maintained grounds. The main office was efficient and helpful. The pool area offered a sufficient amount of lounge chairs, activities, and snacks. The location of the unit is very convenient to parking and the nightly walk to Kamaole III beach to watch the sunsets. It is also located close to some shopping and restaurants so that an evening walk to dinner is quick and easy.

We loved staying here, and hopefully, we'll be back (before too many years go by) to enjoy it again. Keren and Gary - Thanks so much for sharing your lovely cozy condo with us!
