Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom with 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Kamaole Sands is an upscale property that has been voted 'Best Condominium on Maui' by the travel industry. It is located at the south end of the little town of Kihei and borders on the exclusive neighborhood of Wailea. The complex is directly across the street from one of the best beaches in Maui - Kamaole III.

This unit sleeps 2 people. Accommodations will not be made for more.

Our condominium has central air thought and sleeps two. The central air conditioner is new as of July 2015. It is a split system meaning you can run the air in both the living room and the bedroom simultaneously. To use the A/C all you need to do is turn the knob by the lanai to activate the living room. It has about a 60 second delay before it kicks in. If you leave the lanai door open longer than 3 minutes while the A/C is running it will turn off and you will have to turn the knob again. For the bedroom the knob to activate is next to the bathroom door. A full turn of the knob will give you 6 straight hours of cool air. THE TEMPERATURE FOR THE CONDO A/C IS PRESET AT 71 DEGREES AND CANNOT BE ADJUSTED. I feel the setting is very comfortable and I think you will as well . If you decide you want the air off just turn the knob backwards counter clockwise. The unit has been remodeled and is in building number six with a beautiful garden view. It is very spacious with one bedroom and two full baths. The entire condominium has new tile floors. We have the unit with the very large lanai to add to your enjoyment of the beach. The condominium comes with a TV with cable in the master suite and an entertainment center with TV/VCR/DVD/CD player in the living room. I also have videos for both young and old and books for your enjoyment. ***FREE INTERNET***

For your beach experience, I also provide you with beach towels, chairs, grass, snorkel gear, umbrellas,tennis rackets and just about anything else you need for a day at the beach or pool. I even have a wagon for you to use when bringing in your groceries from the car. It really comes in handy when lugging in big packs of bottled water.

The Kamaole Sands complex is a lush, 15-acre property that truly represents the Aloha spirit. We are in building six, on the second floor, across from the pool. The pool has recently been renovated and the decking replaced with beautiful flagstone. There are two jet spas, a large pool, and a children's wading pool. There are also four regulation tennis courts, barbecue areas, an on-site deli, and a center to book activities. The complex has also been recently gated for more privacy. Several world-class golf courses are minutes away. Just a short walk or drive is great shopping and dining.

I know that you will enjoy your stay in our vacation dream home. Please feel free to contact me if I can answer any questions you might have.

Beautiful Condo with everything you could need!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property! It was a beautiful condo with all the amenities you could possibly want. Located close to the pool, walking distance to the beach and dining. The property was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of supplies provided for a fun day at the beach. We enjoyed relaxing on the large lanai after a busy day. We would definitely recommend this property to others! Thank you Wanda for a great experience on Maui!

Wonderful condo in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in Feb 2017 - I would highly recommend this condo. Wanda was awesome - she was excellent about getting back to us whenever we had a question. When we inadvertently got locked out she got back to us, by text, in about 2 minutes! The management company was great to deal with too - quick, efficient trip to the office to check in, then on our way.

The condo was very clean and smelled great! The king size bed was very comfy with very high end sheets and comforter. There were only the 2 of us so we each had our own bathroom. Very nice, updated and came with bar soap and body wash in the showers.

The best thing about the condo besides the convenient location is the large lanai where we enjoyed many meals and glasses of wine - a perfect place to relax after a long day at the beach. The kitchen was well stocked with any appliance you could need and many pantry items.

Wanda has many beach accessories - including 4 Tommy Bahama chairs for the beach and 2 beach umbrellas, boogie boards, snorkels and masks. Lots of beach towels too.

We didn't need to use the air conditioner when we there, wasn't that hot. There is a ceiling fan in the living room and the bedroom.

Although there was only 2 of us, this condo would have plenty of room for 3-4 people using the pullout sofa bed.

Thank you Wanda for a trouble free relaxing stay and if we're ever in need of a Maui condo again we'll be back.

Beautiful Property, close to beach and shops

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely condo. Well appointed, exceptionally large lanei, very private. Enjoyed the AC system as you could set it for a specified time in both the Master Bedroom and the LR/Kit. Worked well. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Location

Absolutely LOVE Kihei as a launching point to anywhere on Maui. This unit was well maintained and perfect for what we were looking for. Lanai was stocked with stuff for the beach for those interested. Thanks for hosting us!

Nice unit, yet disappointing - RENTER BEWARE!

  • 2 of 5

The unit is on the 2nd floor with the lanai looking towards the pool area, vegetation blocks the view, but not the noise from the pool area before 10:00, no biggie.

The unit itself is nicely remodeled, with tasteful decor, nice furniture etc.. Also the owners provide a nice selection of beach chairs and towels, cooler, snorkeling gear etc (pretty much the same as the other units we have stayed at in the Kamaole Sands). The complex is well maintained and is located, just a short walk across the street to the park and beach.

So what's not to love?

The booking experience was not as others have reviewed, Wanda was very hard to get in touch with and not terribly informative when we did make contact (a yellow flag I should have heeded).

The first glitch was not getting arrival instructions until just a couple of days before our trip which was unnerving, and this quickly led to the 2nd and most significant glitch that cast a pall on our entire vacation, this relates to the "Central A/C" which was the MAJOR reason that I selected this unit. Here's where you find out that the system is on a timer, AND THE SETTINGS ARE CONTROLLED BY THE OWNER!! The A/C was pretty pathetic, the timer was not a big deal, but the temperature of the unit was very uncomfortable, and the unit was set on the lowest possible setting so it only emitted a whisper of cool-ish air. The welcome letter lets you know that the owners have the controls so it just sucks to be you if you do not like it, AWFUL!! This borders of false advertising, we have been going to Hawaii for decades (renting condos from VRBO for over 10 years) and have never had such an awful situation. I would have been happy to pay for excess electricity but without the controls this was not possible. Trying to sleep every night stewing in our own sweat was not nice and made our whole vacation sleep deprived. To be fair I live is a very temperate location where I do not even have A/C in my home (Encinitas, CA close to the beach) so someone used to extreme heat (Texas, Arizona ?) may be fine, MY WIFE AND I WERE NOT!!

The final indignity was the "free" internet, while free, the performance of the system made it worthless.

You can do better at the Kamaole Sands, we love the complex, but I would recommend finding a different unit. I would also recommend that the owners be more upfront about the A/C system restrictions, better still, charge and extra $10/night and set the unit at a humane level

We could not want for anything! Beautifully furnished!

  • 5 of 5

The Lanei was nice for breakfast and relaxing. Enjoyed that the rental was close to the pool. The extra nice touches were much appreciated. (books,movies and games). Everything one would want was in the kitchen, crockpot, coffee maker, pans, dishes, seasonings, ect. Thanks for sharing your home with us! Would recommend for up to 4 people, Accurate listing!

Nearest Airport
20 Miles
Car: recommended


Once you get on Piilani Hwy the turn to the complex is at mile 9and the turn (right) is Keoneki. There is no light at the turn and when you make the turn you will be in a subdivision. Keep going towards the water and turn left on Kihei Rd, and the complex is on your left. Check in at the front desk for parking pass and complex instructions.
