About John and Maysie Tam

Born and raised on Maui, we have lived, worked, and raised our family on Maui. We reside a mile away from Kamaole Sands, and we love to personally greet our guests upon arrival, and respond to any questions or problems immediately and without any delay. We provide our guests with insider tips on places to visit, secret beaches, activities to do, and the best restaurants for casual or fine dining. On occasion, we have shared a bottle of wine watching the whales and the sunset.

John and Maysie Tam purchased this condo in 1982

Why John and Maysie Tam chose Kihei

Families return to Kamaole Sands throughout the years. Why? Kamaole Sands is clean, well-managed, and one of the most family-oriented condominiums on Maui. There is so much for the kids as well as the adults, with a variety of activities in a safe and enclosed grounds and environment.

What makes this condo unique

Our guests at 10-401 have an up-graded fully-furnished condominium with sunlight and cool sea breezes and tropical views. Our top-floor ocean-corner location is safe, clean, and quiet. And yet we are so close to outside activities for the energetic, and hidden beaches for the adventurous.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A tremendous "Thanks" to John and Maysie for sharing their beautiful condo. The views are fabulous, the sunsets incredible, and just here long enough to feel the island magic to release all the troubles of everyday life. Say a prayer with the conch shell blowing when the sun says goodnight. The romping with sea turtles and amazing snorkeling just on the beach out front. We will return. Aloha.

I know more about this condo than anyone other than its owner's, John and Maysie Tam, the reason being that I stayed in it for 16 of the 21 days we were in Maui, as that is how long I was confined to it, I had the flu. We had extremely warm weather, yet had no need of the new air conditioner, that is available, as refreshing breezes caressed and refreshed as they passed through. Three out of four main floor walls that have screened windows and doors which facilitate the comfort. You see evidence of the pride and care the Tams have for their unit, in all the appliances are newer, renos they have accomplished include brand new granite kitchen counters and cabinets as well as bathrooms. There is a pleasant mirrored wall, on the south, that extends from the living area through the dining area, which gives perception of additional width to the condo. Along the north wall is an excellent display of artwork and posters. Expect a warm welcome from John, as well as occasional phone calls just to make sure you are enjoying your accommodation. We were part of a group four, Pullen Families, in the resort, 16 people in total, we cooked for and entertained the group easily three times. The lanai closet is very well equipped to outfit you for the beach, the ocean and picnicking etc. A variety of balls etc including basket balls are provided.

You are very close to everything available to do in Maui, John will comprehensively outline, in hand writing, if you wish, what to do and where best to do it, taking into consideration your tastes and budget. For example he showed us Cuatro's as an inexpensive alternative seafood restaurant, but with comparable fare to Mama's Fish House. He told us to mention his name if needed, we were denied a reservation first request, but his name made our reservation possible. To top it off John showed up early in the first week with a flower arrangement of Maysie's from her garden. They lasted the duration of our stay. What more can I say.

John Pullen,

The owners are very nice and the place is charming

Great location. This area doesn't have beach side resorts, this condo is the best location in the complex for access to Kam III. For the price you really can't beat it. This place is most perfect for either two friends, or a family with 2-3 children.

Welcome Home!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 nights in this unit. Best location! Even though the temperature flirted with 90 degrees in the daytime, there was absolutely no need to run the air conditioner even though there was one. This unit is breezy and beautiful. John stayed in contact with me from the time of booking up until our arrival, answering questions I had with very thorough responses. There were even fresh flowers left on our first full day. Just added a touch of comfort and care to an amazing experience.

This was a great find and I would definitely love to stay here again!

Great condo! Great resort! Great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in this condo and it had all the comforts of home. The location is amazing and the views are wonderful. It was a treat to meet John Tam and all his wonderful information of the area. We loved the flowers Maysie sent from her garden. It was wonderful to enjoy the breezes blowing through the condo and did not need the A/C once. The location is perfect. I would return again any time.

Great Condo! Wonderful Hosts! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and I spent a week in this great condo. Now that we are all retired we could finally find the time to take our first vacation together. Our first week was spent in Honolulu and after the hustle and bustle of that city and not so nice accommodation it was wonderful to be met by John Tam, welcomed with cold drinks and shown around his comfortable, very clean and well equipped rental unit. We enjoyed every minute there! By following his suggestions with regards to keeping doors open and windows open and using just the screens we kept this unit cool and pleasant all the time. We did not use the air conditioner at once. He phoned us during our week's stay to see if we needed anything and to assure us that he was there for us and to contact him if we needed to. I felt this was a great touch as we found out he was a wonderful source of information! The beautiful garden flowers he delivered midweek were such a lovely personal touch! This condo is just steps away from the beach, snorkelling and trail walking. Its a short drive to anywhere you want to go! The street is busy and as all city streets are has lots of traffic noise! By keeping the street side window closed at night we found the noise level to be much less and the condo still cool. I did not find the noise level to be an issue! We enjoyed our stay here very much and would recommend this condo to every one! To meet the person behind the emails and also one who is such a caring owner to me was a real plus!
