This spacious two level 3 bedroom and 3 full bath Penthouse unit has over 2,050 sq ft of living space allowing the whole family to stretch out. The 2 lanais, lots of windows, numerous skylights and vaulted ceilings make it very bright and airy. Being on the 9th floor, it is a very quiet location. There is only one other unit on the 9th floor and no other floors above us.

The entire condo has undergone a full renovation that was completed June 2016. The Penthouse has a new A/C system (most units do not have A/C) a new interior paint job, all new furniture, all new mattresses, all new bedding, all 3 bathrooms updated, new flooring in all 3 bedrooms, updated patio furniture and much, much more.

There are 3 bedroom suites, all with private baths, their own A/C, flatscreen TV and plenty of closet space. The main floor master bedroom has a king sized bed with a tub/shower combination. This bedroom has sliding doors that open up into the living area and sliding doors to the lanai with beautiful views of Lana'i. The main floor second bedroom has twin beds and a shower in the bathroom and a beautiful mountain view. The second floor loft bedroom has a king size bed with a shower, plenty of extra lounging space and its own lanai with a fantastic view of the ocean & Molokai. All of the bathrooms have double sinks. Although all of the rooms have A/C, opening up the sliders is a perfect a great way to enjoy the trade winds and still be able to hear the ocean.

The fully equipped remodeled kitchen has full size appliances, plenty of counter space and equipped with all of the conveniences of home. Some additional appliances include a rice cooker, blender, toaster, coffee maker and coffee grinder. There is also a washer and dryer located inside of the unit.

Enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktails on one of the 2 lanais. Choose to look out onto Lana'i from the downstairs lanai or go upstairs and look out at Molokai. The perfect place for watching the most amazing sunsets.

Sands of Kahana is located on a sandy swimmable beach. The waves are gentle enough to get in the water and float around but large enough to offer some variations during the day. There is a vendor onsite in which you can rent paddle boards and other equipment. The unit is equipped with some snorkel gear, sand toys and beach towels. You will find beach chairs and loungers down by the ocean and around the pool.

There are two pool areas at Sands of Kahana. One that is specifically designed for small children that allows them to play safely in a wading pool and the other that includes a large spa overlooking the ocean.

There is a restaurant onsite that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Perfect place to grab something while you are at the beach or a dinner when you just don't feel like cooking.

You will find spacious gas BBQ stations downstairs that are cleaned daily and offer prep counters. You will find all of the necessary BBQ tools in the condo to make sure that you can prepare the perfect meal.

There at two gyms onsite that offer both cardio equipment and weight equipment. You will also find an oceanfront beach volleyball court, basketball court, tennis courts and a miniature golf course.

If golf is what you are looking for, you are a short drive to the courses in Kapalua and Kaanapali which are some of Maui's best courses. We are located just a couple minutes outside of the Historic town of Lahaina which offers several restaurants, bars, art galleries and shopping. A perfect place to go in the evening to walk around or to grab an ice cream in the middle of the afternoon.

When you check in you can visit the concierge that can help you book any activities, make recommendations and make restaurant reservations.

There is complimentary WIFI in the unit and free covered parking.

About Cynthia & John Rocha

My husband and I are Real Estate Investors. We enjoy traveling and no matter where we go, we always find ourselves looking at properties. Since we still have school age children I have found that a beach vacation is usually the most enjoyable for everyone. Living on the West Coast, Hawaii continued to be a place that we would return to time and time again.

Cynthia & John Rocha purchased this condo in 2016

Why Cynthia & John Rocha chose Lahaina

We had been looking for several years for the perfect Hawaiian family condo. The condo had to be on a swimmable beach, have fantastic views and enough room for everyone to stretch out. When our friend bought a condo here and I saw his unit and the location, I told him that is exactly what we are looking for. And here we are, owners of a Penthouse unit at Sands of Kahana. The unit offers everything that I was hoping for to make our family vacations fun and memorable and any adult only vacations relaxing.

What makes this condo unique

This condo has the most amazing views of Lana'i and Molokai. You can sit on the lanai and watch the sunsets, spot breaching whales during the whale migration season or watch the activity down at the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us and for allowing us to share the awesome sunrises and sunsets. Our favorite evenings were spent here... grilling local fish and cooking in your well stocked kitchen. Our favorite restaurants were Star Noodle, General Store and Merrimans. We spent hours by your quiet beach and enjoyed snorkeling at Kapalua, Makena, turtle cove.....AND THE WHALES!!! They put on quite a performance! We took a whale watching excursion (Captain Steve's) out of Lahaina and loved it! We are sad to be leaving the stress free lifestyle of Maui. Until next time....

THE perfect spot in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Cynthia, for a wonderful stay in Maui! We arrived to find the condo exactly as described. The condo's upgrades and amenities really make the stay worthwhile. Access to the beach was key too! The views... don't even get me started. We also enjoyed the hotel's BBQ's and pools and shared family dinners in the comfy condo. The location is just a short drive from Paia and Lahaina. I would rent from Cynthia again in a heartbeat! This place was impeccable and one of the best VRBO/AirBnB experiences we've ever had. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: I take great pleasure in knowing that my guests feel that our unit is as wonderful as we think it is. I find our unit to be the right mix of beach, comfort and relaxation. Close to the action but far enough away not to feel crowded, cramped or too busy. It is sometimes hard to convey to a guest just how beautiful it is and how close we are to the beautiful turquoise water until they can see it for themselves. Look forward to renting to you again!

Amazing condo with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as the description and pictures show! It’s large with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Our family of eight including two babies had more than enough room. The kitchen is large and includes more than you need. Due to allergies in the family, we stopped at Costco when we first arrived and ate many meals in the condo. Nothing was missing! The washer and dryer in the unit was very helpful and we appreciated the stroller, high chair and portable crib. I could go on and on but all you have to do is read the description. It’s exactly as stated. The most spectacular part of this unit in my opinion were the two Lana’i. The views from both are spectacular. It doesn’t get any better!! We have all thoroughly enjoyed this unit and will return!!!! Mahalođź’—?

Beautiful condo - great view, great location, more beautiful than pictures provided.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed staying at this beautiful condo! Accommodated our group of 7 with room to spare. The location is great - with easy access to beaches, shopping, and exploring. Very well stocked kitchen, beach toys/supplies, and enough bath/beach towels for our whole group. Beautiful decor - immaculate. Our group enjoyed the on-site restaurant/bar - great food and reasonable prices. Condo owners provided us with awesome instructions/recommendations: driving directions, TV/appliance instructions, great information regarding grocery shopping/dining options/site-seeing suggestions, and much more. An exceptional property with exceptional owners. We'd come back to stay at this property in a heartbeat!

Upscale condo in a second rate complex

  • 3 of 5

This review was difficult to write because the penthouse unit was large, clean, airy and mostly updated. The beds were comfortable and all amenities were in working order and as described. Also, Cynthia was a very responsive host and contacted us several times during our stay to make sure that everything was okay. The condo unit itself would rate four stars. However, it is not true 3-bedroom unit as only one bedroom is “closed” (has a door and 4 walls). So you can expect to wake up every morning with the early risers in your group and to stay up with the night birds. The master bedroom can be partitioned off from the living room which provides some relief. The second bedroom is a loft that overlooks the living room and large screen TV.

The condo development itself has seen far better days. There is an abundance of concrete everywhere and very limited views of the beach or the ocean from the common areas (pool deck etc). We did not go to the restaurant or bar. The BBQ stations came in handy.

This place is heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a wonderful time staying here just before Christmas. The amenities (tennis, pool, dining, basketball, kayak rentals, art classes, fitness studio, hottub, volleyball, etc) were wonderful and we woke up to the sound of the ocean every morning. This condo is extremely spacious and Cynthia has thought of every detail including binoculars, board games, water shoes, beach towels, and guide books just to name a few. We were able to watch sea turtles and whales from our balcony everyday as the sun set. Cynthia was also very helpful with making recommendations and always responded immediately when I needed suggestions. This is a perfect location. It's close to tons of shops, water sports and restaurants. Maui is absolutely magical and I couldn't think of anywhere better to stay while enjoying all the beauty it has to offer. Thank you for everything Cynthia! We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: So glad that we could share our beautiful condo and view with you and your family. You must have been reading our minds. When we were there for Thanksgiving we noticed that when the condo was closed up for the day, the loft would get warm. We took the opportunity to interview and hire a window tinting company to come in before the end of the year to tint all of the skylights. While the skylights make our condo amazingly bright it also accounts for the increase in temperature in the afternoon. I have been assured that this investment will take the edge off of the afternoon heat but still leave the unit with the open feeling so many of us love. The trifecta of a dedicated A/C in each room, the trade winds and the tinting should make this space comfortable for even the most temperature sensitive person. We really hope that you will be able to come back and stay with us again on your next trip to Maui! Mahalo Cynthia
