About The Owner

We are a family of 6. Mom, Dad and 4 teenagers. Mom and Dad are retired United States Naval officers.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

We first bought a 2 bedroom timeshare at the Sands of Kahana in 2003 sight unseen. We were promised by the realtor that the Sands of Kahana were the biggest 2 bedroom condos on Maui. We wanted a big place since we had the 4 young children. When we first checked into our unit, we couldn't believe how big the unit felt. We then had a great family vacation and fell in love with the Sands of Kahana complex. So, we decided that we wanted to be a place outright that we could use anytime during the year. With our growing family we decided to get a 3 bedroom place. Although there are only a few in the complex we were so happy to find a 5th floor, corner unit with two lanais that is right on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

There are fabulous ocean views from the lanais, living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay in your place; there is no doubt we will stay here again when we come back to Maui! Everything was well thought out; the kitchen was well stocked (two off everything!) And the rooms/beds were so comfortable! The ocean view was spectacular. We woke up every morning sitting out on the porch, mesmerized by the waves crashing onto the shore. It was truly one of the best vacations we've shared as a group. Thank you!

Beautiful setting on the fifth floor

  • 5 of 5

Good spacious condo with great view of the ocean. Perfect for our family size. Open concept made us feel not crowded. The pool and hot tub was never too busy. Great restaurant adjacent to the pool open basically all day. Walking distance to golf rental shop etc. Cheaper than renting from the courses. There are beaches everywhere but didnt have to leave because of this facilities own beach. Sea turtles at the end of the beach were a big hit with the grandsons. Highly reccomend this unit and facility.

Owner's Response: We are so glad our place worked well for your family. Before your arrival we conducted a deep cleaning of our place. In addition, we removed some old furniture and purchased some new furniture throughout our place. We also hired some people to do some much needed maintenance and upkeep including painting and new flooring. It is nice to hear that some of our changes contributed to your positive stay at our place at the Sands of Kahana. We look forward to working with you again.

Very Nice Condo with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with 5 adults and 3 small children and had all the room we needed. Very nice with a great view of the ocean and sunsets in the evening. All the toys you need are in the condo and a convenient market and eateries close by.

Property was great unit 356 needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

Location of the property is great. However, the actual room needs a makeover. I have stayed in other units at this property. The decor is dated, faded, stained & in need of a thorough cleaning. Air vents had a buildup of dust that needed to be cleaned. Amenities were weak. On a positive note, beach gear was ok & a/c was great.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback and we are sorry to hear our unit was not our typical 5 star place for your stay. We had a busy spring and summer at our unit and it sounds like our close to full occupancy may have caught up to our unit. We do not live on Maui and we did not have a chance to visit it this year, however, after we read your review we quickly flew to Maui and met with our on site property manager and maids. We discussed the cleanliness issues you had mentioned. As a result, our property manger made some changes in their cleaning staff and some of their practices. Now, besides the normal check in and check out cleanings, we set up a deep cleaning schedule with a separate cleaning company to have deep cleanings every 2 to 3 months or as necessary to keep our unit clean for our guests. While we were on Maui we removed the old stained and dilapidated furniture in our unit. We then purchased new living room furniture, new lanai furniture, new furniture for the bedrooms including beds and bedding. We hired painters for some painting and we laid new tiles in the bathrooms and hallways. We also hired a maintenance man to do some more upkeep work for us in December and next year. A high demand vacation rental property such as ours requires continuous maintenance and upkeep. We understand that and we pledge to work diligently and closely with our Maui property manager to ensure our future guests, their family and friends have a positive, enjoyable experience at our slice of paradise. Also, we are glad you liked the AC in our unit as our unit is one of the few units at the Sands of Kahana that has AC.

Spacious condo with an awesome ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo at Sands of Kahana at the beginning of September 2017. We had 7 adults and there was plenty of room for all of us! The beds were comfortable, the A/C was a big plus when we needed it and the ocean views were spectacular! We spent most of our time out on the balcony and appreciated the nice big table out there with comfortable chairs. There were plenty of linens, closet space and a washer/dryer. The location in West Maui was perfect for short trips to Lahaina, Kannapali and to other beaches. There's not much beach right there (you can access the water though) but a great grass area with chairs, BBQs, pool and restaurant/bar. They have onsite rentals of SUP boards, kayaks & surf boards. We had a blast on the SUP boards! Fantastic place!!

Perfect Maui condo

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time while staying in Rob's home! The location is ideal and we awoke to the sounds of the waves and enjoyed morning tea on the balcony overlooking the beach. The beach items provided in the condo were definitely used by our party including snorkeling gear and buckets! We stayed for 3 weeks and it absolutely felt like home to us!! We would definitely love the opportunity to go back again.

We're right on the beach

Our condo at the Sands of Kahana is located in Kahana on the west side of Maui. Kahana is about 5 miles north of Kaanapali and about 8 miles north of Lahaina. Kahana is a great location because we are located close to many of the West Maui tourist attractions however, Kahana is a residential area of West Maui and we have a lot less pedestrian and car traffic in our area. We feel Kahana is a perfect distant from the tourist trap feeling of Lahaina and Kaanapali. In Kahana, you can truly enjoy the beauty and tranquility of west Maui.
