Beautiful Condo in Perfect Location
"Rita's condo in Kamaole Sands was exactly what we had hoped for when we first began planning our family vacation to Maui. The condo itself was more than comfortable for two adults and two children ages 14 and 10. It was clean, spacious and equipped with all the beach accessories we needed (cooler, towels, chairs, umbrella, etc.). The air conditioner worked very well on those evenings when the trade winds didn't quite do the job. The kitchen had everything we needed and the lanai was perfect. Large enough for all 4 of us to eat a meal there comfortably, and the views to the water every morning were more stimulating than the finest Kona coffee.
The location of the property couldn't have been better. Within a 2 minute drive is a grocery store, several convenient stores, numerous restaurants (I still have dreams about the fish tacos at Coconut's), farmer's markets and fruit stands, and you're only 2 miles away from the Shops at Wailea which in our opinion is the premier shopping center on the island. So many beaches that are within close proximity including Makena (Big Beach) and Charley Young, but our favorite Kihei beach was right across the street at Kam 3.
The condo management was helpful and the onsite concierge took care of signing us up for the obligatory luau and snorkeling trip. And Rita, the owner, called us upon arrival to ensure everything was to our satisfaction, and again the day before we left to make sure we had a great time. She recommended beaches, activities, and even had the missing TV remote replaced within a day or two, which isn't as easy as it seems considering she isn't on the island.
The question I always want to know when I read VRBO reviews is, Would I Go Back. The short answer is, YES. The longer answer is; just writing this has me ready to go back, and I've only been home a week. Our next trip to Maui will absolutely include staying at Kamaole Sands 10-305. Mahalo Rita, until next time."

"Beautiful condo, amazing view and perfect location! Thank you so much for working with us on our schedule and sharing your piece of Heaven. Recommend to anyone going to Maui! We were there with our 3 month old baby and could not have been more comfortable."

"Just spent 10 days at the Mana Kai #812 and can't wait to go back again. This was our second stay in this unit and LOVE it. Views are fantastic. Location convenient. Unit has everything you need for a vacation. Owner is very easy to work with. Had a small plumbing issue during our stay and it was repaired very quickly without any inconvenience to us. Absolutely nothing better than lying in bed listening to the water and watching the whales breach!! The Mana Kai has a restaurant, General Store with deli, a rental company for beach/water items and a fantastic activities desk (ask for Tracey!!). If visiting in the winter, be prepared to be amazed by the whale watching - you won't be disappointed."

"Donna and Randy provide an incredible condo- so spacious, very clean and inviting! A lot of thought was put in to make guests feel comfortable. Privacy if you need it with the two levels. The ocean view is so beautiful- We enjoyed breakfasts on the lanai each morning while spotting whales, and relaxed in the evening gazing at the stars. It's a perfect location to several great beaches- Keawapaku being a favourite. There are lots of beach accessories-umbrellas, boogie boards, towels, and more, which we used constantly. Well-stocked kitchen with everything you would need. Nice to have a washer/dryer in the unit, too. We have stayed at Maui Kamaole several times in different units, and this one is the best by far! If you like happy hour, try pupus at The Five Palms down the street!"
