About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Just Steps Away From The Beach

This splendid condominium located in a quiet North Kihei neighborhood has everything you need for your Hawaiian getaway. It's simplistic, beach-cottage inspired design comes with all the household amenities you need. Just a heads up, my unit does not have air conditioning. However, there are ceiling fans in both rooms.

The communal area includes a spacious, well kept garden and lawn, 2 gas BBQ grills, and pool. It's a short walk away from a long stretch beach where you can enjoy a early morning coffee or a beautiful sunset with toes outstretched in the warm sand. The winter season also means whale season in Hawai'i and from December through March, you can catch frolicking whales from the beach. Come and enjoy a slice of paradise.

Small but Comfortable Condo Right Near the Beach!

  • 4 of 5

Excellently stocked condo. Kitchen had more than we needed as far as condiments, dishes, and cookware. Bed was comfortable, shower was roomy and got warm quickly, and we never had a problem finding parking. Condo gets really warm, but we didn't mind the lack of A/C except when getting ready to go out. Fans in the bedroom and kitchen/living room worked great to cool the space down while we were just hanging out or sleeping! We found a beach umbrella, several chairs, a boogie board, and straw beach mats on the lanai but the cooler was missing. We were definitely disappointed as we had planned to use the cooler during our vacation.

The beaches and parks within walking distance are spectacular! Great restaurants, coffee, and other necessities within short driving distance. Don't forget to check out Maui Fish 'n' Chips for the best fried cod around and hit up Maui Brewing for some solid beers with food truck options for food!

We drove to West Maui and South Maui regularly. The condo was in a great location to make these drives easy and reasonable! If you find yourself in Lahaina, be sure to check out Kohola Brewing. The pineapple pilsner is fantastic!

Relaxing and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

It was great stay, very relaxing. Really no complaints! The pool in the backyard was clean and picturesque, never saw anyone there so it felt like we had it to ourselves. The condo is clean and the kitchen looks nicely renovated. The location of the building is good for us since we don't like being in the hustle and bustle but is central to easily get around. If we come back to Kihei, we would stay here again!!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Wailana Sands for a week and loved it. The location was perfect. We loved that the condo was right near the beach, and just minutes away from Kihei. It was very central for everywhere we visited across the island.

We were very confortable in the evenings with just fans and open windows. Afternoons were a little warm, but we were rarely home during the day.

We loved it!

Cute and quiet hideaway!

  • 5 of 5


Great little place. Has everything you need. There was only 2 of us and it fit us spaciously. We had a car to get around, I would reccomend one if staying in this location- seeing as though it is just a couple minutes from the "downtown" of kihei. (Less then 10 minute drive). Had the pool to ourselves most nights. Super quiet place. The beach that is right across from this place was supee quiet as well, mostly locals which was lovely and this beach had the nicest sunsets by far. Konami was very prompt with responding on VRBO and email. Very cute theme throughout the place.

Cons: If you were hoping to not rent a car this is not the place for you. No air conditioning. Coming from a colder part of Canada we embraced how hot it was through out our stay at night. There are fans but even when you open the windows there is no fresh air draft or breeze through out. Thinking they might need a fan you can put in front of the sliding glass door, to circulate the air a bit more.

Overall we loved it. Would stay again!

Some nice features, definite lack of attention to details

  • 3 of 5

We were very excited for our stay and, based upon the photos, thought we had snagged a really cute and fun property. However, we were disappointed overall with our stay.


Nice little kitchen

Nice common grass/pool area

Good proximity to beach (across the street)

Nice shower


Overall, there is a huge need to update certain elements and replace worn out features.

1. Toilet seat is falling off

2. Bed is absolutely awful - no excuse for this not being replaced tomorrow

3. Living room furniture is old and dated, futon is uncomfortable (especially after sleeping on the bed).

4. Only were provided with a few trash bags and 2 rolls of toilet paper for an entire week (rules state to replace trash every night). Was not resolved, even when we contacted the manager.

5. Photos were deceiving and made the place look larger than reality (the place is very small)

6. Some elements of the bathroom are updated, which is nice) but one of the cabinets and the toilet seat need to be replaced

7. Only tile floors (not clear in photos), which made it difficult for our infant.

8. Bad airflow in the whole apartment, not enough fans to move the air. No A/C

We would not stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time to write a thorough review of our condo. I'd like to address and hopefully clear up some of your criticisms. 1. We will fix the toilet asap. 2. We just replaced the mattress on April 7th, 2017 with a brand new Casper mattress, therefore will not be replacing this anytime soon. My husband and I have been using a Casper mattress in our own home for over a year and love it! We purchased a Casper for our guests in hope that they'd experience the same comfortable sleep we do. 3. We are slowly renovating our condo and will eventually replace all of the furniture. Until then, we will continue to give our guests affordable rates. 4. We've never had a complaint about the lack of toilet paper and trash bags before, therefore we feel that we provide an adequate amount for a week stay for 2 guests. We also weren't aware that our house rules said "take trash out daily," because no one took it literally before. Thank you for pointing this out to us, we've since changed it to "as needed." 5. We had no intentions of deceiving anyone with our angles and composition. Yes, our condo is quaint. 6. Thank you for complimenting our shower, we remodeled it last September. We will fix the cabinet and toilet seat asap. 7. Our house rules states an age limit for our guests, which is 6 years old. This is because our condo isn't suited for toddlers and infants (tile floors, no A/C). You never stated you and your wife were traveling with your child, which had I known, I would've suggested finding other accommodations. Hard floors are essential for condos for overall cleanliness, because a lot of guest are coming from the beach or pool and can sometimes bring a lot of sand and water into the condo. 8. The area of North Kihei we are located in is typically breezy from the trades and offshore winds. Occasionally, there's no winds and that can exacerbate the heat and humidity. Sorry we couldn't provide you with the accommodation that you were hoping for. Thank you again for your review.

Paradise in a sea shell!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have hoped for a better vacation on Maui by staying at the lovely condo in Wailana Sands. The condo is quiet although conventiently located near the shops and restaurants in Kihei, and is within steps of a stunning beach. It is very well equipped, and the lanai is right next to a lovely and secluded swimming pool and BBQ area. Konami, who we dealt with to arrange our stay, was very responsive and kind in providing all the information we needed. We recommend staying in this condo to anybody who is looking for an independent quality stay on Maui.
