For the perfect mix of island resort living with all the comforts of home, you’ll love the Elikapeka Suite at Sands of Kahana. Located on the west coast of Maui, you’ll have sandy beach access mere feet from our home, full views of the ocean, the island of Lanai’i, breathtaking sunsets, and the gorgeous West Maui Mountains all from your expansive --nearly 2000 square feet-- 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo suite. All of your needs can be met on the resort, but for those who want to explore all that Maui has to offer, Kaanapali, Kapalua, and downtown Lahaina are all just minutes away.

The Elikapeka Suite is perfect for groups and families of all ages! Our home is a corner unit 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, one-level, open floor plan condo with a large, gracious, fully-stocked kitchen, separate dining and living rooms, featuring two large lanais with direct ocean (from master & living room) and mountain views (2nd & 3rd bedrooms). The suite is privately owned (not a timeshare) and has been renovated throughout with new stainless steel appliances, full-size LG steam washer and dryer for your private use, flatscreen Samsung and LG LED televisions, exotic wood flooring in each bedroom, high-speed koa wood fans throughout, high thread count, hypo-allergenic bedding and high-end mattresses, modern island furnishings, artwork, and plenty of bath and beach towels for all! For those rare, uncomfortably warm and humid tropical days, our unit is also one of the only of its size at Sands of Kahana to offer controlled central air conditioning.

An ideal place for gathering family and friends, the suite comfortably sleeps up to eight guests on two king beds and two queen beds.

A few notes on frequently asked questions:

-We will not share the unit number until your reservation is paid-in-full. This is for security and guest privacy purposes.

-Length of stay and discounts: Stays of less-than-five nights will be only be considered where there is a 'gap' between other bookings and additional nightly discounts may be available for those stays. Given the quality and size of our unit, the many on-site amenities that are included in your stay, and our competitive pricing relative to other three bedroom units and hotels in the area, we do not offer additional discounts other than what may be occasionally advertised here. For monthly rentals, cleaning fee is waived.

-Depending on other bookings and time of year, we may ask if you have any flexibility in your dates. We recommend booking your accommodations before your flights if you have flexibility.

-Your payments are non-refundable unless we are able to rebook your dates; you'll have a chance to review the full cancellation policy in the rental agreement before you complete your reservation.

-Since group vacations to Maui can be very expensive, we highly recommend looking into trip insurance to protect you against any unexpected life events that may prevent you from honoring your stay. Insuremytrip is an independent site that allows you to compare coverage options.

Mahalo (thank you) for considering making our home your Hawaiian haven while on Maui!

About Brooke and Ken (Owners)

Ken & Brooke are a father-daughter duo who are truly striving to make this home all about bringing together and celebrating friends and family ('ohana'). Ken (aka Dad) lived on Oahu as a young Navy brat (a member of the “world-famous” 1955 Hawaiian Pineapple League Champion Little League team!) and has fond memories of his Hawaiian childhood. In 2014, we decided to purchase a home at Sands of Kahana as an occasional retirement retreat and family vacation home.

We have been enjoying Maui for over twenty-five years with our extended friends and family and are excited to help you do the same!

Our home is named in honor of Ken’s remarkable sister, Elizabeth, who passed away in 2012, but lived her life practicing aloha and caring for others.

Brooke and Ken (Owners) purchased this condo in 2014

Why Brooke and Ken (Owners) chose Maui

After staying at many places on Maui's westside, we chose Sands of Kahana because of its great location (accessible, but away from it all), spacious units, one-level (with elevator) living, resort-style property features. We could see the potential in what was an old, outdated unit the minute we walked in and the many joyful future vacations with extended family and friends.

What makes this condo unique

When the tradewinds are blowing we love being able to open the windows and feel the breeze. There's also nothing better than the faint crash of the waves that lull you to sleep at night.

Great visit to Maui from Minnesota!!

  • 5 of 5

Six adults, 3 couples, had a turn key visit in the middle of April, 2017. The unit was ready and awaiting just as was promised. Brooke did a terrific job in providing us great resources prior to our trip to Maui, regarding the unit/complex and the area. Unit was clean and ready to accommodate us from the time we arrived. We had one small question that was responded to quickly via email from Brooke within a couple hours. The unit was spacious and the views were terrific! It was nice to have a lot of the beach needs right in the unit that we were able to use daily. We would recommend the unit and look forward to a return in the future!!

Excellent! Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We loved this unit. My husband and I stayed here with our family: 6 adults and 2 children in total, and we never felt crowded. The unit is spacious and well-laid out, so that privacy is not a concern. The large kitchen is well-equipped. This is a corner unit, so there is always a breeze on the front balcony. We had a good view of the ocean from the balcony. As an added bonus, there is a second small balcony off of the middle bedroom. The living room furniture is large enough to accommodate our family. We especially appreciated the baby equipment that Sue has included in the unit: the playpen and highchair are in excellent condition. The air conditioner was a bonus, but we seldom used it. We found that we preferred to open windows and patio doors and enjoy the breeze.

We enjoyed the amenities of the resort: the tennis court, mini-golf, onsite restaurant, hot tub and pool and of course, the beach - which was never crowded and not at all rocky. Importantly, the unit was clean, the linens and towels were fresh and good quality.

Access to the elevator is via the parking garage which was a bit off-putting, but not enough to deter us from booking this condo in the future.

Owner's Response: Aloha Angela, We're so happy you enjoyed your stay in our home! Thank you for the lovely & detailed review; it's so helpful to us & potential guests. We love taking advantage of the tradewinds over A/C, as well--it's a bonus of Maui living. Though, when they aren't blowing we're happy to be able to provide central air. Thank you for taking such excellent care of our home and being such conscientious guests! We're honored by your stay. I'm not sure who Sue is in your review, I but I'm glad the highchair & travel crib met your needs. As for the elevator access, it's usually a benefit to have it go to the parking (ground) level so that our guests can easily load & unload luggage & groceries, as well as eliminate stairs for those with mobility challenges. I'll follow-up with you to better understand; but we're glad it didn't detract from your stay and we hope to host you again! Many mahalos! -Brooke

Lovely stay, nice to be away from the Hubbub of Lahania.

The unit was very nice. Wish the beach was bigger. The grounds were a little dated, but I enjoyed it being a smaller resort.

Owner's Response: Aloha Tina, Many mahalos for staying in our home! For those reading your review, here is a helpful link about Kahana Beach: It isn't a "destination" beach like Kaanapali or Makena, but we also don't charge $1000+ per night which is what it would cost for 3 bedroom rentals or 3 hotel rooms on those "big" multi-mile-long beaches. We love having sandy beach access right outside our door that isn't overcrowded. It's a favorite beach among locals :) Much of West Maui was developed in the 70's and early 80's (Sands is one of the younger ones in that period), with the exception of some of the newer resorts in Kapalua and Kaanapali. And, as you can imagine (or have seen), those newer resorts are very pricey. Given our "budget-luxury" status, we think the resort offers a lot of value and quality! Thank you again for your feedback and for allowing us to share our home with you.

Great place.

  • 5 of 5

Only bad thing is the elevator being out the first two and a half days. We were on the 5th floor with everyone in their 70s. Tough climb for the three ladies with us.

Owner's Response: Aloha Andersen Family, Thank you for the five-star review, we wish we could know more about what you enjoyed and we are a bit confused by your comments about the elevator. When you called us about the elevator being out, it was your second day in our home. We immediately called the front desk to find out what the issue was, when it would be resolved, and asked them to assist you. We were told that the elevator had already been repaired. We called you back and asked you to confirm that the front desk was being truthful about the repairs being completed and asked if you needed anything else. We never heard back from you. As for the elevators, they had interior remodels completed last year and improvements to the mechanicals have been on-going in 2017. However, from time-to-time, anything that can break, will, and this is the first we've heard of the elevator being a problem for multiple days in a row (sometimes there is a hold up when there is a lot of traffic). We did arrive one night to find them out-of-service, but staff was more than willing to bring our bags and other items up to the condo. The elevators were repaired by morning next day. My dad who is an owner of our home is 72 years young and having a single-level floor home with reliable elevator access was critically important when we purchased. For those who may be reading your review, we hope that they will take away that communicating with us about anything you may need will be met with an immediate response to ensure your comfort. If we don't know there's a problem, we can't fix it.

Owner's Response: Aloha Randy, Thanks so much for leaving a review and for being such easy guests! We really appreciated your responsiveness, timely payment, and the respect you paid our home. Sorry to read you didn't have amazing Maui weather for your stay; this has definitely been an odd winter for weather! Glad you got out on the water and hopefully you were able to see some of the humpbacks traveling through the channel. This is their favorite time of year. Many mahalos from our family to yours.
