About The Owner

Our family has been visiting Hawaii since the 1960's and when Sarah's mother moved from Alaska to Maui in 1974, Maui became our favorite family vacation spot. We have been so fortunate that our expanding family still gathers there every winter. Summers are spent in Anchorage, Alaska, with visits to California in spring and fall to see the grandchildren.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2002

Why The Owner chose Kihei

Kamaole Sands has so many amenities that many other properties lack. The grounds are spacious and beautifully landscaped. The units are large and many boast beautiful garden and ocean views. We were so fortunate to find a top floor unit in Building 2 with beautiful ocean and garden views As grandparents we knew that Kamaole Sands was the best property we had visited in providing activities for children of all ages and more than met our needs for adult activities. Proximity to the beach was another important factor in choosing Kamaole Sands.

What makes this condo unique

Kamaole Sands is one of the most popular properties on Maui for visitors. The central location is just minutes away from half a dozen golf courses. Shopping and restaurants are with walking distance and the best beaches on Maui are just across the street. Some of the popular amenities include, two spas (one for adults only), great swimming pool (covered at night to retain heat), fitness center, ping pong table, foosball, complimentary mai tai party poolside on Wednesdays with live local entertainment, beautiful tropical gardens and fabulous barbeque stations located throughout the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got back from staying for a week in your lovely condo in Maui. We wanted to let you know that we had an absolutely wonderful time. Last year we stayed in 10-XXX and your unit has better beach access, better pool access, and better bbq access, not to mention a great parking place. Your beautiful condo exceeded our expectations in every way. Thank you so much for allowing us to rent it. My family has already started lobbying for a two week stay next year. So I am sure we will be in touch. If you have any other jaded Californians who are hesitant to rent through a private party we would be happy if you wanted to use us as a reference.

Paradise Near a Great BEACH

  • 5 of 5

My mom, friend and I spent a relaxing week at Kamala Sands. Sarah is so great to work with. The unit is spacious, well equipped with everything we needed and the view is amazing. The stars sparkle at night and the ocean sparkles during the day. The grounds are so lovely and lush. Okay...the best part..the beach, a very short walk across the street, is great for snorkeling and swimming AND everyday, there was at least 6 sea turtles hanging out. I can't wait to go back.

Roomy, beautiful Lanai views, great kitchen space

  • 4 of 5

6 of our adult family members stayed over the Christmas holidays. Sarah's place was welcoming from the moment we arrived at 1:00 am. Spotless and enough 'basics' to get us through the night and the next morning. We truly appreciated the use of the beach chairs and coolers and the boogie board. The snorkel gear was handy too! We were a perfect short walk ( 2 mins) to Kam3 beach. Easy access to the pool area and the BBQ areas. We look forward to our next stay at Sarah's condo. Thank you for your generous hospitality! Aloha and Mahalo!!

Beautiful Condo with Stunning Views!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property coupled with the owner's prompt, detailed, and caring correspondence pleasingly exceeded all of our expectations. The condo is meticulously maintained inside and out and is exceptionally well equipped. The views from the spacious top floor lanai are purely spectacular and breathtaking. The condo's central Kihei location offers numerous amenities within walking distance including shopping, dining, and of course one of the best beaches on the island. We are perpetually grateful for having the privilege to stay here and look forward to staying here again in the future. Absolutely perfect!!

Wonderful Place!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited Maui for the first time and had a fabulous, relaxing week staying in this beautiful condo at Kamaole Sands. Our visit went very smoothly, thanks in large part to Sarah who promptly addressed all of our questions and provided us with all the information we needed so that our arrival and check-in went smoothly.

The pictures on her posting accurately depict what you’ll find when you enter. Being on the top floor, the unit has a two-floor layout. The main floor has a bedroom by the entry with a closet that Sarah has stocked with items that you may find useful during your stay – ‘backpack’ beach chairs, a boogie board, a soft-side cooler, among other things.

Ceiling fans keep the place cool and we never found the need to turn on the air conditioning. Glass doors open onto the large deck where we spent the end of each perfect day with mai tais, watching the sun sink under the horizon to create an amazing sunset. The view of the ocean and the exotic flora of the grounds are breathtaking.

A centerpiece in the living room is the spiral staircase that leads to a balcony and the master suite on the second floor. The suite has a comfortable king bed and a full bath. Sarah’s tasteful use of local art décor continues here and makes for a peaceful space.

Location is everything, and this condo really delivers. Directly across the street from Kamaole Sands is the Kamaole III beach. If you enjoy early morning and evening beach walks, you’ll be delighted. The town of Kihei has installed pedestrian crossing lights and with the press of a button the lazy flow of traffic, if any, will stop and let you cross. The white sand beach is beautiful and a great walk can be had by traversing short park areas heading north to the adjoining Kamaole beaches II and I.

We found the snorkeling on Kamaole III beach to be up to par with the trip to Molokini Crater. Just beyond the gentle breaking waves are a number of shallow coral reefs. Colorful tropical fish abound, as do sea turtles and octopus.

Again, location. Sarah’s condo is in a perfect location for walking everywhere. There are a number of restaurants within an easy 15-minute walk on flat terrain that you’ll find enjoyable. Shops are plentiful if you’re looking for that special something to bring home or as a present.

We look forward to booking this condo in the future and would strongly recommend it. Mahalo!

  • 4 of 5

Need to fix screen it was very hard to close. Also in downstairs bedroom some of the slates on the windows didn't close properly letting in the sun when sleeping.

Owner's Response: So sorry you had trouble with the screen door and bedroom louvers. I have a maintenance person who is on property every day to take care of any maintenance issues, but unfortunately I didn't know there was a problem until I read your review post stay. These small problems crop up from time to time and, between my housekeepers and maintenance person, we try to take care of them in a timely manner. My apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced.

A lovely, well-kept vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this unit! We look forward to renting it again in the future. Lovely ocean view from the deck that we used frequently. Beautiful, updated kitchen with all the utensils, cooking ware, many spices and condiments and even sharp knives. A treat to discover beach chairs for all four of us. Easy walking distance to pool and beach. Comfortable beds. Definitely a wonderful place to stay!
