About The Owner

We are a family of 6. Mom, Dad and 4 teenagers. Mom and Dad are retired United States Naval officers.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Maui

We first bought a 2 bedroom timeshare at the Sands of Kahana in 2003 sight unseen. We were promised by the realtor that the Sands of Kahana were the biggest 2 bedroom condos on Maui. We wanted a big place since we had the 4 young children. When we first checked into our unit, we couldn't believe how big the unit felt. We then had a great family vacation and fell in love with the Sands of Kahana complex. So, we decided that we wanted to be a place outright that we could use anytime during the year. With our growing family we decided to get a 3 bedroom place. Although there are only a few in the complex we were so happy to find a 5th floor, corner unit with two lanais that is right on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

There are fabulous ocean views from the lanais, living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom.

Needs an update

  • 3 of 5

I just got back from staying at this property for 7 days in Jan 2017. You walk in and the view is absolutely amazing!! The beds are very comfortable and the quilts are new. The price is good for the view.

Unfortunately, the property needs a major, major update. It also needs a major cleaning. I took pictures while I was there of the mold in the bathroom, wall paper peeling off the walls, wood peeling off doors and dirty spots that could be cleaned easily. When I looked under the kitchen cabinets to turn on the lights, it was filthy, the hinges under the sink were filthy from the garbage can, even the kitchen sink was dirty, but with a little scrubbing it was cleaner. This is really due to the people that clean this unit. Even the power cord on the floor was filthy, which takes little time to clean everything. The table on the outside lanai was held together with duck tape. I did not want to give this review, but unfortunately it needs to be said and people need to know what they are walking into.

All in all it was a good stay, but was hard to get past the mold and dirty unit. The outside landscaping and beach is wonderful. We saw whales everyday while we sat on our lanai, and a turtle on the beach. There is a good restaurant on the property that had great food and nice happy hour!

The owners were great at getting back to us and the whole process of booking, making payments, and information were great!!!

Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your feedback. We, the owners, do not live on Maui and cannot get to our place as often as we would like so we greatly appreciate the feedback. We rely heavily on our on site property manager, Sullivan Properties, and their property management service but it looks like they and their maids did not do a good job cleaning our unit before your arrival or letting us know of your concerns. We were disappointed to hear about your issues as we have used Sullivan Properties for over 10 years. We have discussed your comments with them and they will address our issues so there will be no problems for our future guests. On our end, we scheduled a deep cleaning of our place next week so the cleaning service can take their time and properly clean the unit for future guests. We started to paint the unit this past December and we have scheduled additional paintings this March and May. This past October, we did purchase new mattresses and bedding so we are glad to hear you found the beds comfortable. Also, this week, we purchased a new patio table and chairs for our lanai. We are very sorry that these issues manifested during your stay at our place. We realize many of these items could have been avoided if there was some good old fashioned attention to detail. Sullivan Properties is aware of this and we are confident they will make the necessary changes to ensure future guests will not encounter the same issues.

Awesome find!

  • 5 of 5

This place is huge!! I loved the layout. It was perfect for my twin 14 month olds. Just rented a couple baby gates and they were having a blast! The rooms are spacious, the view is breathtaking, the lanai is large! We never had a meal inside. The kitchen is fully loaded, from a rice cooker to an electric griddle! We were so impressed! The owner made it so easy for us and really tried to accommodate our needs! We will definitely be back!!!

Large Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place to stay for myself and my crew for a job in Lahaina, and this was perfect. This condo is huge with a large lanai overlooking the ocean. The price is very competitive with what is available. I did not get to really enjoy my time there, but it was nice coming home to such luxury. I would definitely recommend this place.

Great location, condo in need of update

  • 3 of 5

We just returned from 7 nights at this condo, with a group of 8 people. Positive comments: The Sands of Kahana was a great resort, loved the closeness to the beach, wonderful amenities. The pool side cafe has great food, fun atmosphere. "Elvis" even came one evening and put on a little show on the lawn! The condo itself is spacious, with large windows allowing a wonderful view, and the air conditioning was a lifesaver, as we had very hot and humid weather, with almost no wind. We had plenty of towels and bedding, and the kitchen had the necessary pots and pans. We felt it was definitely a good price and a good choice for a large group.

On the down side... Both sofa sleepers were very uncomfortable. Ended up needing for two couples to sleep in one room, lacking privacy for them. We requested the twins be put together for a king size when we booked it, and that wasn't done upon arrival. When I called to see if they would still do that, they were not very happy and said there would be a fee for the "inconvenience". All of the beds were very firm, no soft comfy fluff here... and the pillows were flat. I honestly couldn't sleep past about 6:00 am because I was so uncomfortable. Towels, linens, bedding, seemed to be old and well used.

The dish washer never seemed to work properly, so we did our dishes by hand. The electric skillet was also not hot enough to use. The decor seemed to be in sad need of updating, with pink and blue tile work in the front bathroom, out dated and faded "art work" and wallpaper peeling in places, fixtures were chipped and rusting, walls needed painting. The curtains in the living room have sun rotted and were shredding in spots.

The table on the lanai took up the entire space, and no chaise lounge to relax on. The small lanai was too noisy to enjoy because the air conditioning unit was located there. Nearly every other condo had greenery growing in their front window, but ours was empty except for a couple soda cans.

The unit feels like it has never had anything done to it since it was built, except the smaller bathroom had newer tile work. Bottom like... Good value for the money, nothing fancy tho.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comments and the recommendations. We are glad to hear our air conditioning unit worked well for your group since we are one of the few units at the Sands of Kahana that has air conditioning. Sorry to hear the property management company did not have the twin beds ready when you arrived. We will address that with them. We will also address the towels and linens with them since that is also their responsibility. We do appreciate your feedback. We were already aware of some of the other issues you mentioned. We had planned to address them in a few weeks in October when we will be staying at our unit. We already hired a contractor to remove the outdated wall paper and provide a fresh coat of paint. We recently ordered new curtains that will be installed. Earlier this year we purchased new bedroom furniture for each bedroom. While we are at our place next month we plan to address the other issues you mentioned. Thanks again for your feedback.

My family and I just came back from staying at Rob's condo and I must say his place is fantastic. The ocean views are amazing. The condo is very big and spacious. The property is well kept and the staff are amazing. I now know where I will always stay whenever I go to Maui.
