About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our beautiful one bedroom condo is across from a large park and the best beach in Maui. The very dry climate means you are virtually guaranteed a spectacular sunset every evening. Our condo has a partial ocean view and is in easy walking distance to Kihei Village. Beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, and beach toys 'come and go', but we try to keep these items in stock at all times. We have an AC unit in the bedroom as well as the main unit in the living room, and TVs in both living and bedroom.

We live nearby and check the condo often to make sure it is in perfect shape. The 2 bathrooms have been remodeled within the past 4 years and the kitchen was completely remodeled in August of 2013. The unique features of our baths and new kitchen make our unit an attractive selection.

About Steve Slater

I am from Florida originally, my wife from Oregon. We have both lived in Hawaii 25 years and were married in 2003. I lived in Hilo for my first 12 years in Hawaii. Along with dog Lucky and cats LB (Loverboy) and OK (Orange Kitty), we love the Maui aloha lifestyle.

Steve Slater purchased this condo in 2003

Why Steve Slater chose South Maui

We literally live just up the street and keep a close eye on things at the condo. I did all the remodeling myself.

What makes this condo unique

If you are into a total relaxing vacation, perhaps you are not compelled to get in a car and drive for entertainment, you may find that you do not need a car to stay at our place - the location is that perfect.

Terrific experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at units in Kamaole Sands in the past and this was by far the best experience we've had. The location away from the noisy pool area was great. The supplementary air conditioning in the bedroom was a real bonus. We've never had that luxury before and it made a huge difference in "sleepability." Everything in the unit was great, comfortable, functional, clean and made our stay totally relaxing. We would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting a top-notch location in the wonderful area of Kihei.

Great location! The condo was recently remodelled and had everything we needed for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was equipped very well to meet our needs for a young family. It was nice there were beach toys, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie board, spice rack, etc for us to use. Would definitely recommend this place!

Great condo in an awesome location!

  • 4 of 5

Steve was really responsive and answered all of our questions. The condo was clean and comfortable. Some condiments were left behind which was helpful because we didn't have to buy everything. The location of the unit (in the complex itself) was pretty quiet and fairly close to the elevator. The pool is great and the grounds are lovely, Kamaole Sands is the best place to stay in Kihei!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo can't be beat: across the street from a lovely beach, lots of restaurants and stores walking distance, grocery store (Foodland) with a poke bar a 5 minute drive, and easy drive to anywhere on the island. Highly recommend staying here and if we go to Maui again we'll more than likely stay at this lovely condo!

Lovely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally clean and stocked with everything we would need to make this our home for over two weeks. All of the items for the beach were much appreciated. The kitchen had all of the necessary items to prepare and store food. The supply of condiments was a nice bonus! We've stayed at Kamaole Sands 5 times now and this is one of the top units. The air conditioning was an awesome touch but we never used it because the cross breeze through the suite made it more than comfortable. Great location to come and go and enjoy our Maui vacation. Aloha and Mahalo!

The main attraction of course is the beach - one of Maui's nicest beaches is just a 5 minute walk from the elevator of the condo. Just above the beach is a nice park with padded playground/swings for little kids. There is a wide grass field, a popular spot for visitors and locals to take their lawn chairs and a drink to see the sunset. You are within walking distance of several restaurants and shops, and a full grocery store is about a mile down the road. Maui is full of arts and artists - there is plenty of top notch music going on somewhere nearby, for sure.
