Kihei Sands is a Direct Beachfront complex and from your front door you are just steps away to Maui's world famous white sand SUGAR BEACH. 5 miles long, Sugar Beach is Hawaii State's longest beach. Why cross the road to get to a beach? You are ON the beach!

Your condominium is in a SMALL-SCALE complex that is intimate, relaxing, friendly and well-maintained by on-site management. An ideal location in the complex for those who prefer privacy yet want to be just steps to the ocean and pool. You are literally 30 seconds away from the ocean and can hear the waves from your bedroom at night.

Kihei Sands A6 had a recent 3 month long renovation. Remodeled with attention to detail, using the finest materials and craftsmanship for quality upgrades to pamper you. Contemporary Pacific Coastal style.

Upgrades you may not find elsewhere:

• Keyless entry (no registration/no keys/no hassle)

• Kitchen - quartz countertops and glass backsplash, Hansgrohe fixtures, Calphalon stainless cookwear, stainless appliances.

• Bathroom - Walk-in shower custom tile with thick glass, and Hansgrohe raindance shower system

• Bedroom - Serene and spacious. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves on ultra comfortable California King Bed (Cushion Firm Daniel Lakes). Plenty of storage for your belongings. Light blocking curtains and ceiling fan.

• High-end Air Conditioner (whisper quiet Mitsubishi split AC system)

• Cool, clean tile floors throughout.

• Excellent WiFi Throughout the Complex.

If you are seeking a quiet getaway, our location is ideal for long walks, swimming, shelling, snorkeling, sunning, whale watching (during season) and most of all, getting away from the crowds. Ride our gentle waves, rent a stand up paddle board or join the local canoe clubs in the morning to paddle on our bay.

Unit A6 has everything you could want for. It is truly your Maui home-away-from-home as my wonderful guests (and their reviews) will attest.

Kihei Sands is known for its hospitality and our repeat visitors. We have risen to the #2 position for Tripadvisor's Specialty Lodgings category in all of Kihei.

The common area is direct oceanfront and features a beautiful pool, sunbathing area, a dining area and two gas BBQs. From our Beachfront Deck you will enjoy our fresh coffee served 6am every morning... stunning sunsets every evening... Campfire night on Tuesdays (smores and hotdogs anyone?) or potluck gatherings on Thursdays...

Our property landscape includes small lawn areas as well as tropical Hawaiian plantings which include heliconia, hibiscus, white ginger, and rare Kahili and Blue ginger.

A quarter mile walk down the beach to the south you'll find fresh Kula-grown produce and ingredients acquired from nearby 'Suda's' Farmers Market, an ABC Store, Sugar Beach Bake Shop (rated #1 or #2 bakery on the island), and Ululani's Shave Ice (rated #1 on Maui). Right next door to the north, you'll enjoy Maui's 'Cheers' Bar, Dina's Sandwitch - a perfect place for casual dining and a full bar. Nearby by car there are abundant options for upscale and casual dining.

From our North Kihei location, you are in the BEST (and most central) location from which to see the island. Great for those who wish to explore other parts of Maui, and then return home to their peaceful retreat with an expansive beach and bay.

Our small scale property offers old-school charm and hospitality as well as conveniences you will love. Free WiFi throughout the complex, keyless door entry for your unit, SMART TV for streaming your favorite shows, conveniently located laundry, on-site resident property management.

- from guests Cliff and Monika, Calgary, AB, Canada

'Aloha, ....We particularly enjoy the closeness to the ocean of this condo unit. It's a pleasure to be lulled to sleep with the sound of waves slapping onto the beach... Having stayed here at Kihei Sands for almost 13 days we discovered it's a great 'secret' place on Maui! Our condo here (A-6) has been a delight & hope to stay here again..'

- from guest Anne I.:

'Dear Elen - Amanda and I had such a wonderful vacation! I hope to come back and bring my husband sometime. Maui has Everything, and we tried to do it all! After talking with some of the other guests in the condos, it seems yours is much nicer, updated, etc.than some of the others. I don't believe in luck, and am especially grateful to the universe for sending me to you! Mahalo again, hope to talk to you again sometime soon. Anne & Amanda'

'Aloha Elen,

I just wanted to send you a quick note of BIG THANKS! Your place and assistance were wonderful!!! My brother & I greatly enjoyed our 1st trip to Hawaii / Maui, it certainly will not be our last. Please know that the Kihei Sands and A6 are already being recommended to everyone! I guarantee you will hear from us again (hopefully sooner than later). I included a picture of us on the last evening, enjoying some of Nelson's great coffee and soaking in the amazing view!

About Elen

When not in Maui I'm at home in the Bay Area California, perhaps hiking with Buster (my companion in the photo), growing organic fruit and vegetables in my garden, or travelling of my favorite things to do! I've visited and stayed on 5 of Hawaii's islands and love them all. I love sharing Maui with others and strive to help you have the perfect vacation on our island. I have upgraded the unit, carefully selected the furnishings and appliances and stocked it with literally everything you need to immediately enjoy your 2nd home in Maui.

Elen purchased this condo in 2005

Why Elen chose Kihei

Kihei Sands evokes a strong reminiscence of my very first visit to Hawaii as a teenager. It possesses a relaxed charm and friendliness that you simply won't encounter in many other properties. Before I purchased, I looked all over the island at many different complexes and kept coming back to Kihei Sands as being the right choice.

What makes this condo unique

We are right ON the beach! No need to cross a street and carry your belongings. You can hear the ocean at night from your bedroom and you are mere steps away from your front door and into the ocean. For those who seek a quiet and intimate escape, Unit A6 offers the perfect balance of privacy and access to the beach and oceanfront amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After hours and hours of searching for the perfect place for our honeymoon, I came across this hidden gem! The location was excellent, allowing us easy access to both sides of the island for all of the activities we had planned. It has all the comforts of home and then some!!

The kitchen has everything you can possibly need. Some days we cooked breakfast and dinner, which we ate on our private lanai or patio by the beach! The bed was very comfortable and the bedroom had plenty of closet and drawer space to unpack and settle in. Tastefully decorated and very clean, there is also an assortment of CD's and books to keep you entertained! This is one of the nicest units in the complex. We met another couple on vacation and they were definitely jealous about how nice our unit was!

Coffee is served out on the patio every morning. The property managers, Maureen and Paul, are very friendly and the atmosphere was great.

The views from the beach are spectacular, with the West Maui mountains to the right, Mt. Haleakala to the left and Molokini to the south. It really gives you a sense of all there is to explore on the island! One special moment for us was sitting on the beach and watching the humpback whales breach the water!

Some of our activies included:

*Bluewater Rafting - owner's recommendation and probably the most fun of the trip!

*Blue Hawaiian Helicopter - West Maui mountains and Molokai tour

*Feast at Lele luau

*Driving - Mt. Haleakala summit sunrise, road to Hana, west Maui mountains

*Pony Express - was cancelled due to weather but looked unbelievable


Grandmas - owner's recommendation, in upcountry. Liked it so much for breakfast we went back twice!

The Waterfront

Kobe Japanese Steakhouse

Eskimo Candy - awesome fish and chips

It was hard to say goodbye this unit. We miss the sound of the crashing waves while we sleep. We would definitely stay here again and have recommended it to everyone we know!! The owner's communication is outstanding and definitely goes above and beyond. Her recommendations were spot on and we absolutely had the time of our lives. If you are coming to Maui, look no further, this is the place to stay!!!

Value and geniuinely a great place!

  • 5 of 5

At it's price point, it was hard to beat. It was exactly what we were looking for. Direct access to beach (literally seconds from front door) at a low key condo. Interior was well kept and homey. Great communication and direction from owner. Thanks!

Sugar Beach sweet

  • 5 of 5

You cannot beat the location of this property ... the sound of ocean waves are a beautiful background right from the condo which is literally steps from the sandy beach. Great community there given the more intimate size of Kihei Sands, where people chat on the patio or gather to watch amazing sunsets. The unit itself is lovely, compact but well stocked. Many nice touches by the owner who is a genuine pleasure to deal with. Thank you so much!

Homey, quiet, on the beach, private, and the best vacation I have had in years!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very clean and quiet property, both inside and out. Everyone was friendly and helpful, especially the property managers. Everything I could think of was provided, and I mean EVERYTHING! I felt like I was staying with my best friend. A6 has been renovated and looks brand new inside. There is a direct view of the ocean, which is just steps from the lanai. It is a small property, and never felt crowded. The beach is long, sandy, and private, and perfect for quiet time, swimming, or watching the gorgeous sunsets from. Elen, the owner of A6, stays on top of things, and checked in with us from time to time. You won't be sorry for a minute if you choose to stay here, and I am already planning for my next vacation at Kihei Sands.

My husband and I came here for our 20 year wedding anniversary, we had the most amazing relaxing time. Ellen was informative and quick to respond, her place was clean and inviting. I would highly recommend this location for individuals who are needing to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty that Kehei Sands offers!
