We completely transformed the two full size bathrooms. Everything from floor to ceiling - wall to wall - is Brand New!! Wait until you feel the pebbled tiles underfoot when you step into the showers! We transformed our bathrooms, upgraded and remodeled featuring floor to ceiling tiled showers. The enlarged shower in the master bath has room enough for two inside the beautiful tile enclosure that runs the length of the bathroom. Both bathrooms have large and roomy counter tops along with plenty of storage space to accommodate everyone's personal toiletries.

About Karen and Carl Claras

Twenty years ago Carl came to Maui for two weeks of Windsurfing, Windsurfing and more Windsurfing. Karen came to Maui twenty years ago for vacation and stayed at Kamaole Sands in a ground floor unit in building 7. Karen fell in love with Kamaole Sands. Carl was in love with Windsurfing. The two of them were both happily single. When it was time to go home, Carl arrived at the Kahului Airport and decided to take an earlier stand-by flight over to Oahu to catch his connecting flight home to the mainland. Karen arrived at the Kahului Airport for her return trip home to the mainland that same day - relaxed and looking forward to an easy day of travel. She arrived at the gate for the flight to Oahu way ahead of time so she kicked off her shoes and settled in with a good book. An announcement for an available seat on a flight leaving for Oahu "right now" was made. It was announced 3 or 4 more times before the last and final "one seat left - plane door is closing." Karen says she has no idea why she decided at the very last second to get on that flight... only that it changed her life. She sat in the only seat available - the middle seat in the very last row. Carl was seated next to the window.

Karen and Carl Claras purchased this condo in 2003

Why Karen and Carl Claras chose Kihei

Karen fell in love with Kamaole Sands the first time she stayed at Kamaole Sands over 20 years ago. She met Carl who loved Windsurfing. Karen and Carl fell in love. Soon thereafter they came to Kamaole Sands together and felt the love. They are very grateful to have such a beautiful space here on Maui and want to ensure that others traveling to Maui that stay in their home walk through the front door and say... "wow... this is incredible, we love it!"

Convenient location and well-stocked condo.

Our family of 4 - two adults and two teenaged kids were very comfortable during our 10 day stay. Only thing we missed was our King size bed!

Beautiful ground floor condo at KS

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this condo, and were very pleased with the unit. Beautiful upgrade and spotless. Lots of space for our family of 5 adults. Just steps to the pool area if you wanted to enjoy the sun. The 2 lanais are a relaxing area surrounded by lush foliage and shade. We enjoyed our stay there.

Mahalo for sharing your condo with us.

Best place we've stayed in five years of vacations in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four and our friends, also a family of four, had such a wonderful time at this condo. We had four young boys (ages 1.5 to 5 years old) with us so staying on the ground level next to the lawn and pool couldn't get any more perfect.

The condo was outfitted with anything you could possibly need ... From plenty of kitchenware to soft and big towels for the bathrooms.

The ceiling fans were such a blessing since we had some great Maui heat during our week long stay.

The condo was by far the best looking one since we toured the open homes in Kam Sands ... A fantastic remodel.

Being within about a few minutes of walking from the Kam III beach was perfect for our families.

I could go on and on about the perfect the condo was but I'll spare you. We didn't want to leave whatsoever but already planning our stay for next summer.

A huge thank you to Carl and Karen ... They were great during all the planning, scheduling and were quick to respond to emails and questions.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed at your condo for 2 weeks and had an awesome time. Couldn't have asked for a better location. Steps from the pool, ground floor which made it convenient with the grandkids. The condo itself was beautifully designed and very comfortable. Parking was right beside condo which made it easy for packing and unpacking after day trips. Lots of shopping and restaurants close by. The best beach for swimming with the turtles was Kamaole 3, right across the road. We had a great experience and would highly recommend this condo to stay at. Carl and Karen make the booking easy and were quick to answer any questions we had. Mahalo! Loretta

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at your amazing condo for 17 fabulous nights. It is truly beautifully updated, comfortable, well stocked and large enough for two families. We stayed with our daughter and family. Our grand kids loved their very own bedroom with the fun kids sink in the hallway, great for washing up when they came in the door! They could also watch the geckos in the trees from their room in the morning. The photos are a true depiction of the unit and it is very spacious. Thank you to Carl and Karen for a great booking experience and quick responses. We really loved it, and we will be back. Mahalo!
