Enjoy your Maui vacation at the best location on the island. Southwest Maui has the highest percentage of sunny days on the entire island. We are directly across from Kamaole III beach, so your 2 minute walk brings you to awesome sand, sun, and surf. Great for swimming and snorkeling, and well protected for the kids too. Our condo is spacious, cool, and comfortable. This condo is completely tiled throughout, including the beautiful Lanai. Enjoy your Maui vacation lifestyle with spacious living, dining, and entertainment areas. The ceiling fans add extra comfort, and AC is provided. The Lanai has an awesome view of the ocean, and is a great place to have your morning coffee or your evening pupus and drinks. The kitchen is fully equipped for all of your cooking and entertaining needs, and has great counter space for prep work, and to set out that awesome spread. There are two full bathrooms, one for you in the master suite, which includes a beautiful walk-in shower. The second, for your guests, is spacious and comfortable, and has its own tiled shower area with glass block accents to let the light in. The living area has a queen-sized sofa sleeper, with a brand new memory foam mattress which is actually comfortable, can't even feel the bars! Plus a new entertainment center which includes a Sony lcd tv, dvd, free cable, a stereo, and free wireless internet! The master bedroom has a new queen sized 14' memory foam bed, a Samsung lcd tv with free cable, a dresser for your items, and plenty of closet space. Our condo has great ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable, screened entry door, and jealousy window vents above to let those tradewinds through. There are boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and snorkel gear in the lanai closet for you to use at the beach, plus beach towels in the master bedroom closet.

About Stephen

My wife and I have been traveling to Maui since 1984, and one of our favorite areas has been the town of Kihei. The weather is awesome here, always a bit more sunny than other parts of the island, and there are so many beaches and activities directly at hand. We have lived in Alaska for close to 30 years, hence the need to seek out warmer, sunnier climates in order to re-energize. We've been bringing our kids here almost from day one, so much to do and enjoy with them! The lure must have been great, because our son now lives on Maui with his wife, and two beautiful kids! We moved to Seattle two years ago, in order to be closer to family, especially our daughter, her husband, and their two beautiful children. Alaska still has its lure, so we travel back now and then for fishing and friends. Maui completes a most excellent triangle.

Stephen purchased this condo in 2013

Why Stephen chose Maui

We chose Kamaole Sands, and this property in specific, because it is one of the most beautiful properties on the island of Maui. The grounds are meticulously maintained, with walkways, water features, and landscaping that is just superb. The amenities are awesome, there is a front office for check-in, and the service is great. There are tennis courts, a swimming pool with 2 jacuzzis, an activities and concierge area, plus a work-out room as well. The grounds contain separate barbeque areas, and each building has its own elevator.

The location can't be beat. Directly across the way is Kamaole III beach, which has a large grassy area for picnics and viewing sunsets. The beach is quite nice, with excellent swimming and snorkeling from points at both ends. You can walk to shops, restaurants, nightlife and grocery stores within minutes, and nothing beats the area for morning walks, runs, and bike rides. A quick drive to the South takes you to the resort area of Wailea for golf, shopping, restaurants, and beaches, and additional sight seeing. A great property that you may never want to leave.

What makes this condo unique

We love our condo due to many facets, including the location (can't be beat) the overall look of Kamaole Sands (just beautiful), and the comfort of our unit. The tiled floors, and the great ventilation keep it cool and comfortable. The lay-out of the place with a master suite that includes a full bath and walk-in shower, and a separate full bathroom for additional guests makes it so everyone has their own space. The kitchen is easy to work in with plenty of counter space for prep, and presentation, the living area is roomy, the dining area is comfortable, and the Lanai is spectacular! The fact that this is a corner unit is great, it lets in more light, and keeps the neighbors down to a minimum. The ceiling fans and the AC are there to keep you cool, and the entertainment system includes a Sony LCD TV, stereo player, DVD, and wireless internet. From the kitchen, through the living area, to the lanai, the views outside are just beautiful. Your own slice of paradise on Maui!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Steve contacted us several times by email. The place was as described. The grounds around the condo are really beautiful, and it is close to town as well as the southern beaches. Having boogie boards was great, since we didn't have to rent them.

Best get away home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time back, and this time we brought the kids. Perfect little home away from home. Very clean and well stocked with everything you could imagine needing and more. The kids favorite was eating out on the lanai. We all loved having the nice cross breeze that you get with the sliding glass and front door opened (so great that you don't even need to use the AC). That fresh Hawaiian air... we just can't get enough! Thanks so much for everything! We had the greatest time and hope to come back soon! Aloha!

We've been here 4 times in 5 rooms and with numerous friends so have seen lot's of rooms. This room was by far the most expensive, décor was middle of the road. Not a deal breaker it was fine. Bed wasn't the greatest, was an issue for us. Biggest issue was that there was NOTHING in the cupboards for condiments, not even salt and pepper. There is, I am sure, 2 schools of thought on that, but all of our friends and ourselves do appreciate a stocked kitchen. Appliances were fine, toy cupboard was fine, cleanliness was fine. Price for content my biggest beef and a 3.5 rating.Little cheaper and would give 4-4.5. The whole complex is awesome, a lot is what you are comfortable with.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you so much for the honest review. We use memory foam mattress, which most guests truly appreciate, however they are a bit firmer than a lot of people are used to. Regarding condiments there are two different thought processes. One is to stock them, however everyone has different tastes, and we could never have the "correct" ones for all of our tastes. Two is that condiments dry out and lose their quality if kept after 30 days, and if not stored correctly they are an attraction to many insects that thrive in the tropical climate. Very glad to hear about the rest of the items we stock. Prices vary upon season, and December through March is definitely high demand, high season, so we price accordingly. Many mahalos for your input. Steve

Great place to stay on Maui

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo...we have some ocean view one way and views of Mount Haleakala the other. Great lanai, comfy beds and pillows, lovely decor, and lovely grounds. Just across the road from the beach (crossing lights to get across the beach at any time) and also a pool on grounds. We were well pleased.

Love Maui

  • 5 of 5

We were here for 8 days, and had a wonderful time. The unit is very nice, exactly as described. Kam Sands is a great location for us and had everything we would want. We are not so much "resort" people, so a nice condo works better for us. We enjoy the freedom a condo gives to do what you want and when you want. We didn't use the pool a lot, but it is nice. The grounds are well-kept and beautiful. Great beach right across the street. Thanks, Steve

Our condo's location is fantastic! Directly across from us lies Kamaole III beach, one of the best areas on Maui to enjoy your snorkeling and swimming experiences. We are on the South end of Kihei, right next to the resort area of Wailea, great for world-class golf, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. Within a short walking distance from our unit are beautiful beaches, parks, restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and grocery stores. 24 minutes North is Maalea Harbor, a great jump off point for whale watching, snorkeling, scuba, and fishing tours. The Maui Oceanlife Center Aquarium is a must see there too. A few minutes drive to the South takes you to some of the best beaches in the world, including one of our favorites, Makena Beach. Continuing on takes you to great horseback riding, turtling areas, hiking, plus some of the best scenic views on the Island.
