About the property

Ocean view condo, 2 bdm, 2 bath, directly across from popular sandy beach

Kamaole Sands is the premiere property in South Kihei, bordering Wailea. Located directly across the street from Kamaole III Beach (recently named one of Maui's BEST beaches), this central location offers swimming, boogie boarding, snorkeling, diving, paddle boarding and whale watching. You can also walk for miles on the beach, and then watch the most amazing sunsets.

•Best Ocean View: Unit 5-408 is situated on the top level of popular building 5 and offers the very best ocean view, pool view, and resort view in the complex. Also, this unit is strategically located within the resort so that you don't see or hear any vehicles.

•Newly Remodeled: In the kitchen you'll find new cabinets, granite counters, light fixtures, italian floor tiles, dishes, cutlery, and linen. All major and small appliances are new, including stainless steel fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and blender. Bathrooms have new cabinets, granite counters, fixtures, linens, and italian floor tiles. Living room has new flooring, high-quality artwork, and furniture. Bedrooms have new flooring, linens, and televisions, and master has a brand new king bed. Patio has new comfy lounge furniture. Despite how active you are, you'll spend time resting, eating, and relaxing in the condo and on the patio, so you should feel like you’re on vacation there too.

•Private and Quiet: There are no other patios looking onto your patio, and the concrete construction means you don't hear your neighbours. So you can enjoy reading, eating, sipping refreshments, or taking in the view within a private, serene environment.

•Unit Amenities: This is an exceptional ocean view 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, fully-furnished 1200 sq.ft. penthouse condo equipped with full kitchen, including stainless steel appliances. The condo has air conditioning units in the open concept living/dining/kitchen/loft area and in the main floor bedroom, plus 4 ceiling fans throughout. The lofted master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, king bed, and private ensuite, and the main floor bedroom has two twin beds that convert to a king upon request. The unit is equipped with beach towels, beach chairs, and some beach toys. The unit also has wireless internet and an iPod/iPhone music dock with speakers. This condo is ideal for two couples or a couple with one or two children.

•Easy Access to Unit: Unlike other resorts where you have to walk long distances to parking, this unit has a dedicated parking stall right next to a newly-updated elevator that opens quietly just a few feet from the condo’s front door, so it’s very easy to load and unload luggage and groceries.

•Walk to Everything: The property is centrally located and walking distance to numerous beaches, shops, restaurants, grocery stores, sports rentals, and the popular village of Wailea. Best of all, you can walk for a mile along the ocean in either direction. No need to ever get in a car.

•Resort Amenities: Enjoy the property’s 15 acres of lush tropical landscaping and waterscapes. This property offers a large pool, two hot tubs (including one adult-only and one for families), kids wading pool, small fitness room, 10 gas barbecues, and well-maintained tennis courts. The main office has several internet-connected computers available 24 x7 for guests free of charge, including plane ticket printing. (There is also wifi in the condo). Championship golf courses of Wailea and Makena, and the elegant 'Shops at Wailea', are only a five minute drive.

•Beaches Within Walking Distance: This resort is directly across the street, and just a 2-minute stroll, from the famous family-friendly Kamaole III Beach. (We've stayed at many beachfront resorts that had much longer walks to the beach than this one!) At sunset, people converge on this very beach to witness the fantastic sunsets. You can also walk to many other sandy beaches, including Kamaole I and II, Charlie Young, Keawakapu, and Wailea’s crescent-shaped beaches.

•24 Hour Property Management: This unit is professionally managed by a Maui property management firm, which provides round-the-clock assistance to guests of this unit. Do not under-estimate the importance of a nearby pro who is there to help you if you have any issues, large or small, day or night. (The owner has a G.E.T license on file: registration # w01864422-01).

About Annette

We live in Kitsilano near downtown Vancouver in Canada. Martin, a professional engineer, has a wide range of interests, including guitar, hockey, and windsurfing. Annette works at a large professional services firm and enjoys writing, paddle boarding, and community work (cystic fibrosis and environmental sustainability). We both love traveling, and Maui is one of our favorite places in the world - it's paradise on earth!

Annette purchased this condo in 2013

Why Annette chose Maui

We purchased this condo in 2013 after looking at about a hundred places all over Maui. We picked this property because of the ocean views, beautiful tropical landscaping, and location! location! location!

One of our top priorities was to have a condo in a location where we could walk to everything, including a sandy beach, watersports rentals, swimming, paddle boarding, snorkeling, coffee shops, groceries, restaurants, clothing shops, tennis, and a fitness center - just like home in Kitsilano. Best of all, this location allows us to walk for miles along Maui's best beaches.

Not only is the resort in an excellent location, but this particular condo is in the best location WITHIN the resort. The unit is strategically positioned so we have the best views and at the same time don't see or hear any vehicles, which is very important to us. When we are on vacation we want a sanctuary where we can get away from crowds and traffic and this unit allows us to do that.

What makes this condo unique

We love being active and taking advantage of all that Maui has to offer, especially paddle boarding and walking on miles of sandy beaches, which are available right in front of our condo.

But our FAVORITE place to be in Maui is right on our patio looking out at the gorgeous ocean and sunset views. In fact, although our unit is walking distance to some of Maui's best beachfront restaurants, we prefer to have all our meals and cocktails at home on our own patio!

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is unfortunate we have to leave this beautiful place. Your condo was great. After busy days snorkeling, hanging out on the many beaches, or whale watching, we would spend many relaxing hours on the lanai. All of the extra amenities in the condo were appreciated as they made our stay more comfortable. We are leaving with many fond memories and will definitely be back!

Condo has everything!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is located directly across from Kamaole Beach Park III, which is an short easy walk to the beach. It’s within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

The grounds at Kamaole Sands are truly beautiful and include multiple pools and hot tubs and a shaded area with lounge chairs and umbrella tables to make our stay more enjoyable.

The unit itself is modern and clean, and seems recently updated with a comfortable king-sized bed, plenty of spare bedding and towels, and amenities you expect from home. It's nicely decorated with simple touches. We enjoyed the use of the beach chairs, umbrella, and a cooler when we did our day tours around the island.

The best part…you just can't beat the view from the lanai. It’s the perfect spot to have your morning coffee or your afternoon Mia Tia or to watch the evening sunset with a glass of wine. It does not get better than this!

The owner was wonderful to work with. We will definitely be back!

Best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year coming to this exact condo unit and we love it. We have two kids, 7 and 5, and this place offers everything we need for an easy and fun holiday. The unit is nicely decorated and clean. The 4th floor location in the centre of the "U-shaped" condo plex, offers great breezes (no need to use the AC) and a great view of the sunset over the ocean. The grounds are also immaculate and the kids loved the pool (and we loved hours of uninterrupted relax time). There is a modest gym, and a pool snack bar with excellent shave ice. The short walk to the beach was no biggie, and the condo has everything you need for beach time.

Lovely views, great accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Kamole Sands is a very well maintained complex- friendly staff and clean. This is not a quiet complex with lots of children running all over the grounds at any time of day and the pool mid morning and later afternoon. So if you have kids this is the complex for you :)

The condo we stayed in was lovely with a loft and two bathrooms - kitchen does not have a lot of cookware but does have a lot of dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would come back in a heartbeat!

Condo checked all the boxes!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui and what a gem we found in this condo. A very comfortable space, great view overlooking the pool and ocean (we saw whales from the patio!), and close enough to the beach to carry the gear for our family of four. We were in the pool every day and used the BBQ area, which was well arranged. One minor point, but oh so important if you have kids, is the proximity of the parking spot to the elevator. Awesome. The only down side was the small size of the patio though we made good use of it every night watching the sun sink into the ocean. We will return again and again.

Beautiful Condo, Good Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very comfortable and beautiful. Our 2 kids were able to stay in the downstairs bedroom with 2 single beds. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and store food. We also used the outdoor barbeque. We walked to Kamaole beach during our stay. My husband had a turtle bump into him while snorkeling. We also saw turtles sunning on the rocks! Kamaole III is great for snorkeling and swimming. Kamaole II was good for boogie boards. We really appreciated the beach chairs, beach umbrella, towels, sand toys and coolers in the condo. It was so easy to get up and go each day.
