Sunny weather along this dry coast and the peaceful condominium community of Kihei attracts vacationers seeking to avoid the more crowded resort areas of West Maui. Kamaole Sands delivers the home-away-from-home condominium comfort and hotel service families and couples arriving on the Sun Coast desire.

The largest of three public-park beaches Kamaole III, lies just across the street from the resort. Like all beaches in South Maui, it is uncrowded. There's also good snorkeling among rocks and coral. To the delight of snorkeling and scuba-diving enthusiasts, the tiny island of Molokini, renowned for the clarity of its surrounding water, is not far offshore, and excursions are easy to arrange through the resort's activity desk.

Our daughter Jasmine O'Brien, is on the swim team called the Hawaii Swimming Club. She practices every day after school, and sometimes swims at the Kihei pool, along with swim meets on Saturday. The pool is less then 10 minutes away from our condo.

Large and beautiful, Keawakapu Beach begins in front of the Mana Kai Resort a few minutes' drive from Kamaole Sands. Next to the Mana Kai is a public parking lot. Signs point the way to the beach, which offers great snorkeling along its rocky northern terminus, terrific boogie boarding when the trade winds blow, and long, tropical-fantasy walks. (Buildings along the beach seldom exceed palm-tree height, somewhat preserving the illusion the beachfront is undeveloped.)

Everything Was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were without want our entire stay! Hats off to Dan and Sri, we had a fantastic time in South Maui. The condo had absolutely everything we needed! We cooked 90% of our meals in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed eating on the lanai where we saw lots of geckos and pretty birds. The beach chairs and boogie board were great too! We would have played games or read one of the countless books provided, but we were too busy exploring Haleakala, snorkeling off Molokini, driving the road to Hana, and laying out at the beach. We will DEFINITELY stay here the next time we visit Maui. Thanks a million for everything! Mahalo and Aloha!

Wonderful holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in Dan &Sri,s unit 8-107 for 7weeks. It was very good & met with all we would want in a holiday condo. There was lots of linen & towels,all the kitchen equipment we needed, close to the beaches & pool, gym etc.&had a lovely lanai which was big & allowed for sun as well as shade. We never used the air conditioner as there was always a breeze we could have going through the unit. We have already booked for 2018 & 2019!!! That tells you a lot eh!!! Doreen & Roy.

great location,very clean

  • 5 of 5

We staying at this property for 10 nights. We arrived late in the evening but check-in was a breeze. The unit was perfect for our needs - awesome being on the ground floor. Fully equipped kitchen great lanai and very clean. Easy access to the beach a the room included two beach chairs, an umbrella and boogie boards. We had a red eye flight so opted to book the room until the following day, any one traveling this way I would recommend this option . We spent the day at beach and could come back, shower and eat before heading to the airport. Owners were very easy to deal with. First time to Maui and we’ll be back!

Fun and Affordable

  • 4 of 5

The place worked great for us a family of 4 with 2 small children, a short walk to the beach and swings! I would have liked a bigger bed and tv and maybe a updated dvd player but it was very comfortable and we loved being on the bottom floor with a grassy yard in the back.

Will stay here again

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 weeks and had a great time in and out of the unit. The owners live in Kahului and are very approachable, if you have any questions.

We prefer a ground unit with a large lanai.

We are seniors and prepared most of our meals in the unit or at the BBQ (your choice of 3 Webers).

Rain or shine, we were always eating all our meals on the lanai, which is large and has 4 comfy chairs.

In reality the condo is as advertised as on VRBO.

We were going to book the unit again for 2016, but the time we needed was already taken. Better luck next year.
