About Lorinda and Steve Grosso

We spend most of our time on the mainland, and wanted to share this beautiful unit with vacationers looking for paradise on Maui.

Lorinda and Steve Grosso purchased this condo in 2012

Why Lorinda and Steve Grosso chose Maui

We wanted a condo in a very popular vacation spot, where many vacationers have found their paradise. South Maui has the island's best sandy beaches, and family friendly Kamaole Sands is directly across from the Kamaole Beach Park III. The area has easy access to nearby shopping, dining, and activities, yet offers the quiet atmosphere of a relaxing getaway. We wanted a unit that has an ocean view, and this one offers views of both the ocean and the mountain. The unit has a central air system, for year round comfort.

What makes this condo unique

We have set this unit up with all the amenities we could think of - Blue Ray DVD players, a movie library, cable TV, wi-fi and plug-in internet access in the unit, 55' flat screen TV in the living room, a flat screen TV in each bedroom, cards and games for adults and kids, new Serta iSeries mattresses in both bedrooms, a pack n play for an infant or small child, many small kitchen appliances, water noodles, several coolers for food and drinks, travel cups, beach tote bag, beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach games and toys, beach towels, etc. Guests are welcome to use these items when out enjoying the island.

Our first time in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with our two young children--2&4 years old. The location of this condo is perfect! You're central to the island and can travel anywhere with ease. Lots of shops and restaurants walking distance from the condo. The sun sets right over the water so every evening everyone comes out to congregate and watch it.

Lorinda and Steve but together a binder with such care and thought for their guests. Everything we needed to know about everything was in there. That takes time and love for one's guests; we really appreciated that.

We didn't pay for any excursions. Whale and turtle watching can be done in the early mornings on the beach. We rented a car and though everyone wanted to visit Haleakala Summit (the crater/volcano) for sunrise, we started going up around 9:30am on a clear morning and got to the summit around 11am. It was not freezing since it wasn't that early and was still unbelievably gorgeous. The road to Hana is a bit more harrowing--my husband handled it just fine--but my girls and I were all car sick from the turns. When it started to rain, I was very nervous on the way back down. There is SO SO much to see on the way to Hana with little kids. If you ever want to know more feel free to ask the owners my email and I'll be more than happy to tell you what works for little children.

The beaches: are not Caribbean beaches. They are rougher, deeper, there is more of an incline, a steep drop, and though we traveled to many--Baby Beach, Napili, Red, Black, Kamaole, Big, etc--the waters are not calm enough for small children. But, the various color sands on these beaches are beautiful.

Nearby food: delicious! 808 Deli was our personal fav (most delicious sandwiches ever)! And Maui Thai Bistro was the most delicious Thai food we have EVER had. 808 Bistro for breakfast was incredibly good--crab cake sandwich was to die for. Fred's wasn't good at all especially not for Mexican food (everything tasted stale). Da Kitchen was interesting for local food--nice and quick. 5 Palms, a fancier rest, was a truly terrible experience. Way too expensive for the service and the meals we ordered.

Minor things: little necessities like salt, pepper, bags, ketchup leftover by other guests would have been nice. There was nothing and so buying big items seemed like such a waste when we had to dump it. I found someone to give it to since we were supposed to leave the condo clear.

This was a WONDERFUL vacation. PERFECT. Thank you Lorinda and Steve!

Beautiful condo to call home

  • 5 of 5

The owners were wonderful to communicate with. They called mid way through our stay to make sure everything was okay - even checked to see if the new picture they had hung looked okay. Their condo was as warm and inviting as they were. The Resort staff was also very friendly and answered any of our questions or concerns as quickly as possible. We would highly recommend this condo and resort if you are coming to Maui.

Awesome Location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great condo, very spacious, and had all of the amenities - including beach chairs, cooler, and lots of beach towels. Great beach across the street, and good access to southern beaches, the highway, and lots of awesome restaurants. My only complaints were that the beds themselves were not the best, and the air conditioner would only go down to a max of 70 (which isn't cool enough for my comfort level). Thanks to Lorrinda and Steve for great accommodations and for extending us the courtesy of a late checkout.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Guest bed preferences are always a challenging topic. Some guests like a softer mattress, while some guests prefer a firmer bed. We have Serta iSeries mattresses on the Queen and Twin/King beds. These are recommended for short term rental properties as a great all-around mattress, which hopefully fits most people's needs. The air conditioning system is a central air system, is serviced quarterly, and the condo cools quickly and efficiently as a result. We have the temperature set at the servicer's recommended temperature, to prevent a failure which can happen when a guest sets the temperature to a low temperature and leaves the air running while out of the condo all day. We will review this again with the servicer based on your preferences. Thank you again, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Like Our Home in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home during our recent stay at Kamaole Sands. The condo was very comfortable. Comfortably decorated and furnished. The only suggestion we would have would be that the included beach equipment, snorkel gear was pretty well worn and probably needs some updating but everything else was great.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you had a great time. We do provide many items for guest use, including coolers, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, etc. However, we don't provide snorkel gear, since there are too many different sizes/styles, and we can't ensure snorkel cleanliness. Snorkel gear left by previous guests can be used if desired, or snorkel gear can be rented at the concierge on site, or rented in local shops. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!

Sweet Maui Escape

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Lorinda have furnished their Kihei condo with all the essentials. The kitchen was a perfect set up for all our meals. The bedrooms are spacious and comfy. We had plenty of beach accessories including chairs, an umbrella, towels and an insulated food tote. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub in evenings after beach trips. The condo is located near a nice beach where we spotted turtles! There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. They have left a binder with a list of recommendations. They were gracious enough to call and check In with us during our stay. We loved our time there and will most definitely return !

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

This condo perfect from the moment we walked in the door! At one point, we had a question so shot a quick email. The phone rang less than five minutes later. The unit was beautiful, had a filled closet of pool/beach toys! The condo association was beautiful, perfectly sized, and a great location. We swam with sea turtles just across the street! There were paid snorkel tours coming to this beach!! We have already talked about going back here if we find our way back to Maui! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Kamaole Sands is located in South Kihei, on the island of Maui, Hawaii. It is directly across the street from Kamaole Beach Park III, the best boogie-boarding beach on Maui, according to a recent publication of the book, Maui Revealed. South Kihei has wonderful sandy beaches, and abundant water activities. Snorkel with tropical fish and turtles, swim, boogie-board, surf, paddle board, and the list goes on. Take one of the many tours available for snorkeling, whale watching, dinner cruises, etc. Take in a luau on the beach, or at a nearby hotel. Go sightseeing, hiking, or just walk on a sandy beach. Enjoy a sunrise at the top of Haleakala, Maui's dormant volcano, and take the mountain bike ride down the mountain to the beach. The list is endless!
