  • Clean, great location condo in Kihei

    "You will not for wrong if you stay here!! The condo has everything you could possible ever need for a beach vacation. It has coolers, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, umbrellas and beach chairs. It is kept very clean and pride of ownership is very obvious. John was very prompt is returning all emails. The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes. The pool is kept up very well and is kid friendly. We enjoyed ourselves that there is discussion of another trip next year and will definitely stay here if it if open."

  • Hawaiin Honeymoon

    "My wife and i stayed in this unit for our honeymoon and could not have been more pleased! The entire property is beautiful and you just have to cross the road to get to a beautiful beach. We watched the sunset from the beach just about every night! Larry and Judy were terrific to work with. Larry was available whenever we had a question or issue arise and got back to us as soon as he could. He even checked in with us after we got home to make sure everything wen well. My wife and i plan on coming back here very soon."

  • We love Kamole Sands

    "This is our second trip to Kamole Sands, first time in this unit, It won't be our last. The location is perfect with beaches and pools all within walking distance. No loud party scene so you can sleep well at night, the birds start singing at 6am so bring your earplugs if you want to sleep in. This condo is very much as advertised and we felt it was priced fairly for what you got. It was very clean and well appointed - there were no surprises. Cupboards were well stocked with seasons/spices/condiments and all the "little" things that you usually forget to bring. The closet on the (large) lanai was full of beach toys/chairs/loungers/boogie boards so you don't have to buy that stuff for just a weeks worth of use. There were even 4 tennis rackets with a sleeve of balls so the kids and I could play tennis at the Kam Sands courts. Communication with the owners was easy and strait forward. We appreciate that the resort fee and cleaning fees were pre-paid so that we didn't have to mess with that at check-in. Some of the best snorkeling is right at Kamole 3 beach across the road. We rented bikes one day from South Maui bikes in "downtown" Kihei and got a drop off at teh top of Haleakala for a great ride down. Advice: skip the sunrise to avoid traffic on the road to Haleakala. There were very few cars on the winding mountain road on a weekday between 8am and noon. The AC unit is functional, if not a little noisy. We are from Alaska, so we ran it most nights to keep the temp down a few degrees. If you are from the lower-48 you probably wouldn't use it at all. There was a nice TV that we never used. We would definitely recommend this unit and consider it for a return trip in the future."
