Overview

About the property

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

Kamaole Sands is a beautiful resort, nestled between Mount Haleakala, Maui’s dormant volcano and the white sandy beaches we all love to play on. 15 acres of tropical gardens, waterfalls, pools, hot tubs, tennis courts and all the conveniences we have come to expect of condominium living. Just across the street is Kamaole III Beach/Park, one of Maui's most famous beaches. It's gentle surf makes it perfect for swimming, snorkeling, diving, paddle boarding, strolling the miles of beach or just soaking up the sun. The park is a great place for a picnic or gathering. Whale watching is popular in the winter and the nightly sunsets are spectacular all year.

Garden/Ocean View, location and convenience makes this the perfect Hawaiian experience. Decorated in tropical Hawaiian design, 1 Bedroom + queen sofa bed (sleeps 4), 2 bath, fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer in unit. Located on the third floor facing the ocean you overlook the swimming pool, hot tubs, and the beautiful tropical gardens. In the distance you can see the ocean and feel the gentle sea breeze that brings the scent of tropical flowers. Have your morning coffee or tea out on the Lanai and watch the Sunrise or enjoy a drink at dusk and watch the spectacular sunsets of Maui.

Relax, Refresh and Rejuvenate

Something for everyone, Kamaole Sands is only minutes away from five world-class golf courses and the Shops at Wailea with dining and shopping. Visit the Wine Country and do a little wine tasting. Drive to Haleakala (Maui's dormant volcano), be sure and stop in the small quaint towns along the way for a true flavor of Hawaii. Want a little more excitement, try the Zip Line, 4-wheeling on the mountain trails or Blue Water Rafting (you just might get to swim with the dolphins). Entertainment, try the Magic Show or Musical Theatre in Lahaina, don't forget to see the Banyon trees and art shops. Take a day trip to Hana, visit the Seven Sacred pools, be sure and stop at the falls and gardens along the way. Enjoy a Luau.

Relax, Enjoy, Experience it all

About The Owner

My husband is a surgeon and I taught martial arts (Shotokan Karate and Taiji) for 30 years. We both love to travel and have been to many countries around the world but Maui feels most like home to us so we made Maui our second home.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2002

Why The Owner chose South Maui

We just fell in love with Kamaole Sands, the gardens, the location, the birds singing and the sea breeze. The location is perfect and the people are just great.

What makes this condo unique

Some of our favorite things to do would be daily walks on the beach, sitting on the lanai or taking cheese and wine to the park to watch the sunset. In the evening we love to walk down to the ice cream shop for a cone. We also like hiking and exploring. At night we love to sit in the hot tub and look at the stars.

Beautiful Resort and Condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Kamaole Sands Resort. The condo was very clean and modern with a really pretty tropical design. It was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. Everything went as promised. The grounds/property was very beautiful and well-maintained. It is very conveniently located and was only a 5 minute walk to the beach. We would definitely stay here again. It was the perfect home away from home. The only critique I would have is that the condo could use some new beach chairs and a new beach umbrella. The beach chairs had seen better days as the straps were ripped with use and time in the sun. The same goes for the umbrella. I would also recommend to the owners that they get new ice cube trays (very minor but a necessity). Everything else was wonderful--quiet and peaceful.

We would recommend dining at Monkypod Kitchen in Wailea--great drinks and food. We also enjoyed breakfast a couple of times at the Kihei Café. The fish tacos at Coconut's Fish Café lived up to their reputation. We also spent quite a bit of time in Lahaina. The drive to Lahaina was about 45 minutes. There we went to the Maui Ocean Center and took a submarine ride with Atlantis (which we would highly recommend). Another great dining experience was at Lahaina Grill. The food and drinks were fabulous. There just wasn't enough time to try all that was recommended or do all the things we would have liked, and take the time to enjoy the resort. One other thing, if you don't need or want a fancy car, we would recommend renting a car from Kihei Rent-a-Car. They mostly rent Nissan Sentras. They are inexpensive and have great customer service. They will pick you up at the airport and bring you to their site. It worked very well for us.

I would say if you like to be in the thick of it, where all the activity takes place, stay closer to Lahaina. If you prefer a quieter, more peaceful environment, Kihei is perfect. Overall, it was a dream vacation. We will be back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our home away from home. We hope you will come back again to do some of the things you didn't have time for. There is so much to do and see on Maui. And thank you for the information on the umbrella and beach chairs, we will have them replaced right away.

Great view in a beautifully remodeled condo

  • 5 of 5

We were part of a large family group that rented several condominiums in Kamole Sands. This property was the nicest of any of the other rentals in our group. It has been recently remodeled and had a great kitchen and beautiful bedroom. For the lanai we had a nice view of the beautifully landscaped complex as well as nice ocean view which was a short walk across the street. We enjoyed snorkeling at the beach across the street as well as other places which we drove to. The complex is conveniently located across the street from a nice beach and within walking distance from restaurants. We liked the grill pavilion in the condominium complex. The only drawback was the cooling situation. In the late afternoon, the condo received direct sun that really warmed up the place and on the hot days (mid 80's) that there wasn't a nice breeze the condo was hot. There was an air conditioner in the living room to cool down the place which was great but it did not quite reach the bedroom sufficiently (there was probably a 10 degree temperature difference). I would suggest that a stronger fan to pull the cool air into the bedroom.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your time in Maui and in our condo. Thank you for the suggestion on the bedroom fan, we will look into it. It is rare when there is not a breeze off the ocean but occasionally it does happen. We hope you will visit again soon.

We were on our honeymoon and found this condo to be an excellent choice. The location is wonderful, with views of the beautiful gardens, pools, spas and gas bar-b-q areas. When your on the lanai you can see a partial view of the ocean. The condo is far enough from the road that you don't hear it at all. Kamaole Park Beach is right across the street from the condo's about a 5 minute walk. This unit is a one bedroom with a private bath, with a walk in shower. There is another bath off the tiled hallway. The newly remodeled kitchen is very well stocked to make dining and entertaining a breeze. The kitchen has granite counters and self closing cabinet's and drawers. It has plenty of beautiful lighting. You will find a very nice and easy to use washer and dryer in the unit. It was nice to use the fans and air conditioning as it was very warm when we were their. The condo had beach chairs and towels provided. I also found the grocery bags provided very handy. It would be our pleasure to stay in this condo again.

OK, but some surprises

  • 2 of 5

The sink is so discolored and damaged it should be replaced. The range cooktop was quite dirty. A hinge on the cabinet below the sink wouldn't close - we just left the wastebasket on the kitchen floor. The fabric on the dining room table chair cushions is badly soiled. The beach chairs are dirty, rusted and ripped – way past time to replace - I kept trying to see the owner sitting in them, but couldn’t imagine.

The Kamaole Sands office people were mixed - anything but what might be described as the Aloha spirit upon check-in - the $36.46 fee was a surprise and they failed to tell us why our condo phone didn't work - it took 3 days to figure that out.

The Kamaole Sands grounds are beautiful. Very pleasant view from the lanai, but the pool noise can be a bit much. We love the location, and have stayed in the neighborhood many times. We’ve made reservations for our next Kihei stay, but it will be down the street.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the information. I have sent a copy to the on-island managers to take care of the issues you raised. As you can see from previous reviews the normal condition of the condo is excellent. I will be on island in just a few weeks and will be sure that all issues have been resolved. We want all of our renters to feel at home and enjoy there maui vacation to the fullest.

Great Tropical Theme, Awesome View

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the striking tropical decor featured in this condo, as well as the stunning sunset views right off the lanai. We have stayed at many Kihei condos, and this one ranks high on our list. The location is great... far enough away from Kihei Road, yet only a short walk to the beach. We really liked the spacious walk-in shower. The condo was immaculately clean and very comfortable. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, and we would not hesitate to book this condo again. Mahalo!

Kamaole III (just across the street from our condo) is well known for its calm surf and beautiful sunsets. Snorkel, or just play in the water. The park is great for Whale-watching (in season), watching sunsets is a must or just walking along the beach miles.
