You are literally 30 seconds away from the ocean and can hear the waves from your bedroom at night.

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.

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.

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 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!

Mahalo!

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 elsewhere....one 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 South Maui

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



Restaurants:

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!!!

Heaven on Earth - Secluded beach - Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

Words don't express the incredible experience of staying at this condo. It was comfortably furnished, immaculately clean, and the location was superb. Our condo owner, Elen, has thought of everything and the unit was stocked with amenities that were super helpful, convenient, and much appreciated. The condo property as a whole was exceptionally well-maintained. Loved the amenities of boogie boards, comfortable chaise lounges, outdoor showers for rinsing off sandy feet and subdued outdoor lighting for sitting on the lanai in the evening with a cool cocktail. Truly, I could make this my home! The location was fantastic. Situated on a beautiful somewhat secluded beach. We enjoyed swimming and floating around every day. With only 30 or so footsteps to the pool or the beach, who could ask for more. Oh yes...dining nearby at reasonable prices -- Coconuts, DaKitchen, Nalu's, Kihei Cafe, and Dina's Sand Witch which we enjoyed immensely, were phenomenal recommendations by the owner! Or, if you prefer to stay in, gas grills are located on the lanai for guests to use. Within walking distance to a great farmers market and Ululani's Shave ice...I am addicted. Would come back to stay here again in a heartbeat. Next time, I would try to visit when the whales come in later fall. Highly recommended 'go-to' destination on Maui! My stay at Elen's home has turned me off on resort vacationing forever. Thanks, Elen for a wonderful, peaceful, and utterly delightful experience. I hope to visit again soon!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I can't thank Elen enough for making our first time to Maui so wonderful and perfect. The condo is exactly as described with tons of personal touches that really make you feel special.

Right from the start when I first inquired about the rental, Elen was on the ball and 100% professional and courteous.

The condo was spotless, smelled fresh and well taken care of.

The ocean is steps away and everyone at Kehei Sands was super nice.

We can't wait to go again!

We stayed in a few different spots while in Maui, and Elen's was the BEST. Very comfortable, with everything you could need. It's a great central location for exploring all of the island. But in a nice quit spot so it never feels busy there. It is the Perfect place to get away and relax!

Comfortable and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Elen's condo. It is even better than described- seconds away from a gorgeous and private beach, close to all of the major sites in the island, and the condo itself comes equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was the ideal setting for our Maui vacation. We truly hope to return in the future!

It was perfect

  • 5 of 5

Kehei sands was an absolute pleasure. We could not have picked a better location or more romantic setting for our honeymoon. Whether it was enjoying local restaurants and sights or sharing champagne on the beach every bit of our holiday was fantastic. Our host was fantastic, and we hope to be visiting Maui again very soon.

Lovely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Elen's apartment is a perfect home away from home for 2 people!

It is spotlessly clean, very well furnished and stocked, and the fixtures are all the highest quality. If you are someone who is picky about hotels (like me), this is the perfect apartment for you. It is clear that a lot of love and care were put into setting this apartment up. Kitchen has everything you need to cook, the grills in the common area by the pool are an added bonus, and the fact that the apartment is already stocked with basics like oils, spices, soap, etc. makes for a very easy arrival and stay. Location is also very central to explore Maui and Elen is responsive, thoughtful, and offers great ideas for dining, shopping, activities, etc. Highly recommend!
