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.

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.

Great condo, location and the Sands of Kahana is a wonderful facility.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I invited our two adult children and spouses along with three grandchildren ages 12, 5 and 1 to vacation with us here. The condo has been fully furnished with enough furniture, bedding and a kitchen fully equipped to make our family of nine very comfortable for our two week stay. The Sands of Kahana has a very good restaurant and bar next to the adult swimming pool, there is also a nice children's pool and a beach within a few steps of the condo. The patio had a table with enough chairs to accommodate our family. And the sunset view from this patio was spectacular. We would recommend this condo to our family and friends. We enjoyed many attraction while here, snorkeling, a zip line, a Submarine ride which took us to a depth of 130 ft, helicopter tour of the island just to name a few. The old town of Lahaina is a short drive from the condo with a number of very good restaurants, we highly recommend Kimo's and there are lots of nice stores for shopping. Lastly, the owner was always available and helpful from the planning stages our trip until we departed.

3rd Time - Nothing Better - Perfect Vacation Once Again

  • 5 of 5

3rd time staying in Rob's condo, and once again, could not ask for a better, safer and amazing location. Amazing views night and day, clean, convenient and comfortable. Well equipped kitchen, linens and towels. Washer & Dryer are a plus for convenience and light packing. Very close to gas station, convenience store, snorkel rentals, restaruant on site is decent and fairly priced. Happy hour 2 - 5 daily. Sand of Kahana staff were much friendlier this trip even though we were not part of their "time share". On site Activities Desk (Brad) is awesome, helpful and will do what he can to get you the best deals on everything you want to do. We can't beat this place, for our large group or just the 2 of us. Yes! We stayed here, just the 2 of us with all that room! It was awesome. Thanks Rob!

Beautiful views and roomy!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here so very much with three of our children (teens and older). The views are spectacular. It was so peaceful sleeping to the sounds of the ocean. I loved being near Napili Bay and Honolua Bay, which are two of my favorite places on the island. The kitchen was well equipped. We didn't need the AC much yet were very glad for it when we did. It could use a few improvements and updating, yet nothing which would prevent me from staying there again.

Perfect for large families with unbelievable views!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great find on vrbo!! We stayed for 10 days with our family of 8 adults & 2 small children & we had plenty of space! The location is perfect for traveling to the beautiful beaches in Kaanapali, Front Street in Lahina, Whalers Village & Turtle Bay in Napili. We actually loved the beach right at the Sands of Kahana & found it quite useful having kayaks & paddleboards for rent right on the property as well as surfboard/snorkel rentals (Boss Frogs) right across the street. We loved having breakfast & several dinners right on the lanai because the views were gorgeous!! We were all impressed by the cleanliness of the grounds. Every morning the maintenance people cleaned the pools, straightened out the outdoor areas and scrubbed the barbecues. They looked spotless each time we used them. The condo itself was spacious with a large kitchen to prepare meals. Definitely stop by Costco right by the airport before heading to the condo. (It's about a 45 min drive) For eating out, a great breakfast spot is Castaway in Kaanapali & a great dinner spot is Hula Grill & Leilani's. The sushi place across the street, Miso Phat, was outstanding as well. The communication with Rob went smoothly from start to finish. We will definitely return & hopefully with all these great reviews, this place will be available for our next trip to Maui.
