We have fully renovated the unit as of December 2013, and decorated it in a Hawaiian motif. We've installed new all wood cherry kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops, appliances, and kitchen utensils. Along with new paint throughout the condo. Both bathrooms have been upgraded along with most of the furnishings.
The Condo is on the second floor easily cooled by the trade winds, it's quite private tucked away in the corner of the resort in building #8 apartment 202. The condo is spacious at 818 sq ft and the lanai is 166 sq ft, the majority of lanai's in Kamaole Sands are only 69 sq ft. It is away from the noise of the inner court and South Kihei Road. We're at the east end of the building, very close to the stairs and far enough away from the elevator so you are not disturbed by anyone coming or going. Your assigned parking spot is nearby.
The unit has free WiFi, cable TV, a blue ray player, Netflix, and CD/FM stereo for entertainment, along with a lending library of books and games. It's fully furnished with a 52 inch ceiling fan and A/C in the living/dining area.
The bedroom has a queen size mattress, 52 inch ceiling fan, 28 inch flat screen TV, and a safe for your valuables. The fully upgraded master bath has new cabinets with granite top, and a full tub/shower.
There is beach friendly tile throughout the condo, the living area has A/C, a new sofa sleeper, 50 inch LCD flat screen TV, blue ray player, cable TV, Netflix, and a CD/FM stereo.
The guest bathroom has a new glass shower enclosure, new cabinets with granite top and the washer/dryer nearby.
The bright kitchen is newly renovated with all wood cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, and a large island with bar stools. It's equipped with new appliances, range, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer with ice maker, many cooking utensils, and other accessories along with a variety of spices, etc. The outdoor barbecues are just a short walk away. The dining area is well lit and has a new rattan dining set.
The condo has a large private lanai, 166 sq. ft. which easily accommodates 4 or more people, the majority of lanais in Kamaole Sands are only 69 sq. ft. From the lanai you get a view of the volcano Haleakela and a peek-a-boo view if the ocean. It's a perfect place to enjoy a great cup of Hawaiian coffee in the morning or to sun tan privately in the afternoon. The lanai easily accommodates a family of 4+ for meals and has a cabinet stocked with beach chairs, umbrella, mats, coolers, and kids toys for your use during your time at Kamaole 3 beach just a three to four minute walk from your condo door. Unfortunately due to liability issues we are unable to supply any water-sport gear.
A one weeks supply of laundry, and dish washer soap is provided along with toilet paper, when this runs out you are responsible to provide your own.
If you decide to stay remember the morning information session by the pool after you arrive, and the Mai Tai party on Wednesday's from 3-4:45 pm.

Mahalo for considering us and we hope to talk to you soon.
We are a semi retired couple living in the country 50 km (30mi) south of Edmonton Alberta Canada.
While vacationing at Kamaole Sands in March 2012 we fell in love with Maui and this resort so we decided to purchase a condo here in order to enjoy all that Maui has to offer more often.
Wayne Westendorf or Barb Glaser purchased this condo in 2013
The amenities at the Kamaole Sands Resort are some of the best and well cared for in Kihei, maybe the whole island of Maui. Over the past 10 years we have traveled a lot to the Caribbean and Central America, Maui tops all those destinations. The one bedroom condos here are spacious, bright, and ours has a large lanai (166 sq. ft. ) so more than 2 people can be very comfortable on it. We looked at many complexes in Kihei before purchasing a condo and in our opinion none compared to Kamaole Sands.
Our condo is secluded, relaxing, and quiet, on the second floor in building #8 away from the street noise of South Kihei Road and the busy parts of the resort. Being across the street from Kamaole 3 Beach Park is one of the best features of our unit, a 3 to 4 minute walk gets you to a safe sandy bottom beach with a lifeguard, it's great for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, taking long walks, or just laying in the sun. Kamaole 3 Beach Park also has bathrooms, showers, swings for the kids, plenty of shade, picnic tables, outdoor grills and acres of grass to enjoy.
Just a short walk from the resort are great restaurants and shops, a short drive away are the golf courses and upscale shops at Wailea. A 20 minute drive gets you to Kahului whether it's to and from the airport, or finding most anything you need in the small shops, Saturday swap meet, or big box stores like Costco and Home Depot.
There are so many things to do on the island of Maui it's hard to list them all. Hawaiian luau's, pedal biking down the volcano, zip lining, helicopter sight seeing, whale watching, snorkeling, swimming with turtles, and driving the road to Hana are but a few. Our condo is centrally located and works great for a home base to enjoy it all. Everything you need for a great holiday, and great weather too, our condo at Kamaole Sands Resort and the island of Maui has it all.
The host was great. The unit was as pictured and we had a fantastic time. It was great to have beach towels, boogie boards, beach mats, beach chairs and so on. Really had a fantastic experience and at a great value. Wayne and Barb were fantastic hosts and when we had issues they were dealt with very quickly ( A leaky hose out of the laundry was fixed in a day once Wayne and Barb found out). Kids loved it too, but be forewarned they have so much fun at the pool they won't want to go. The pool offers Foosball, Ping Pong and many books.
It was easy to have a great time at this beautiful condo. It is spacious inside and on the balcony/lanai, updated, and with all the amenities. Owners are very helpful and even helped us work out a kink that was self inflicted without issue.
We recently stated in Barb and Wayne's unit in Building 8 at Kamaole Sands. We visited Maui quite a bit and always choose the Kamaole complex for our stay. This unit is completely updated and well stocked. The unit is in a quiet location with little foot traffic walking by the front. The BBQ area is close by and not crowed during meal times. Wayne and Barb were easy to deal with, answering email messages as promised. Payment through the VRBO system was a seamless. We recommend this unit to anyone looking for a home while visiting Maui.
We had another fabulous time in Maui, our suite was perfectly stocked with everything we could have possibly needed. The kitchen was stocked like I was at home, there was an abundance of recreational equipment, books, dvd's, and games. I would highly recommend this suite/owners, perfect vacation location.
Our most recent stay at Kamaole Sands was in Barb & Wayne's, clearly lovingly cared for, unit in Building 8. The unit was in excellent shape, and looked exactly like what you see in the photos. Really nice upgrades have been done throughout, and the kitchen was extremely well equipped, making it easy for us to make this our home away from home. Lots of beach towels & "accessories" (boogie boards/chairs/snorkel etc.) were also provided, and we really appreciated the extra homey touches (board games, movies & books) found throughout. A really nice addition to this unit is the extra large lanai, and its sun exposure. Being on the 2nd floor, there wasn't much of an ocean view (but still a tiny bit of one), the lanai's size and south facing lanai meant for sun most of the day, which we loved! Another nice bonus of this unit was how the trade winds hit the building, making it one of the cooler units we have stayed in. By just leaving the front door and lanai door open, and keeping the fans on, we were able to enjoy our time at home without a/c.
We would also like to give a big shout out to Barb & Wayne, who were super easy to communicate with throughout the whole booking process, and who provided great support leading up to our trip. This was not our first time staying at Kamaole Sands, and so we were already quite familiar with the area. It was nice to see though that the complex is still maintaining its high standard, with the bbq pits and pool being always well taken care of. And "Mai Tai Wednesday" (free mai tai's by the pool every wednesday from 3:00 - 4:45) is always fun! Mahalo Barb & Wayne, for making your Hawaii home so welcoming!
We stayed in this condo for 2 weeks and had a great vacation. We really appreciated the large array of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and mats for the beach! Everything was very clean however we did experience ants on the first night. After speaking with the cleaning lady Carol it was suggest we purchase ant killer (we did immediately and it seemed to do the trick)! Sadly the gym was closed for renovation during our stay which was a disappointment and quite loud when trying to enjoy the pool. There was also one day where pest control needed access to the unit to spray and we had to be out by 9 am. The location in Kihei is fantastic!!
We stayed in this condo for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. The supplied coolers, chairs, umbrella, toys, boogie boards, mats, towels etc were great. The lanai was spacious, but I wouldn't call it "oceanview". If you leaned over the railing, you can see a little bit of the ocean. Everything was very clean and renovated very nicely. We checked out some open houses on the resort and couldn't find one done as nicely as this one. We weren't able to find dedicated bedding for the pullout sofa, but made due with spare sheets in the bedroom and one of the blankets on the bed. The resort itself was well designed, with plenty of common bbq's and an awesome pool. Some of the pool rules were ridiculous though. No water guns or throwing (like football) games? The grounds were very well kept too. The kam 2 beach was great, and well within walking distance. Kam 3 was a little small and rough, but nice nonetheless. Our 5 & 7 yr old kids loved baby beach on the north side of lahaina, as well as olowalu at mile marker 14 on the way to Lahaina. Good snorkeling spots for beginners too. This resort is highly recommended for both location and features. You can rent SUPs, surfboards etc from the lobby, but didn't know this until the end of our stay. Souvenir shops and restaurants within walking distance, but need a car for grocery shopping. We'd definitely rent this condo again!
