WE CLEAN THE UNIT OURSELVES after each rental as we have not found anybody to clean it who will take the time to clean it to our standards. We want to insure that you are very satisfied with the cleanliness of the unit when you arrive as we know a dirty unit can put a damper on your vacation. We believe that every guest deserves a clean, well appointed unit.


Our condo is part of the Kamaole Sands complex, which has a 24 hour front desk and provides an activities desk. There are complimentary Mai Tai's by the pool every Wednesday with free hula. The complex itself has a pool, a children's pool, 2 hot tubs, gym, tennis courts, and multiple areas for BBQ. The grounds are beautiful, well-maintained, safe, and family friendly.

The complex is located in close proximity to numerous restaurants, nightlife, shops, grocery stores, and much more. The complex is just steps from Kamaole III, a beautiful sand beach with lifeguards, volleyball courts, picnic tables, and a large park area. Kamaole III is wonderful for families, swimming, boogie-boarding, and relaxing. You also are within walking distance (~1 mile or less) of several fantastic beaches, including Keawakapu, Kamaole I and II, Charley Young, and the Cove (great for learning to surf and paddleboard!)


From breathtaking sunrises to lush waterfalls, thrilling adventures to relaxing beaches, Maui has activities for everyone. We are more than happy to provide you with recommendations and suggestions for countless activities, including whale watching, hiking, fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, zip lining and much more! Maui offers everything from world-class restaurants to local diners cooking authentic Hawaiian cuisine.

About Cheryl Kaupalolo

John was born on Maui and I have lived here since I was 21. We are in our 40th year of marriage and looking forward to many more. We live in Haiku which is on the rainy side of Maui in the country.

Cheryl Kaupalolo purchased this condo in 2016

Why Cheryl Kaupalolo chose Kihei

We bought this condo as we are looking to run away from the rain and to retire to in a few years. We really fell in love with Kamaole Sands. It has everything you would want if you want to live in Kihei. It is close to great beaches and lots of restaurants. There is easy access to the highway so you can get to the rest of the island easily.

We are spending more and more time out there, sometimes just to go to the beach for the day or to hang out by the pool and get some sun.

What makes this condo unique

We love the unit, especially after we spent months remodeling it. It is well built so it is quiet; you hardly know you have neighbors. It is spacious, has great views, and gets the tradewinds in the afternoon. We have taken advise from our guests and added to the amenities as we go along. Little things like electrical outlets by all the beds so you can easily plug in your devices, and laundry baskets for your dirty clothes help to make you feel more at home.

Perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family, friends, and I stayed for more than eight weeks in the condo and found it perfect! It is beautifully remodeled and furnished, completely equipped, and lacking nothing. The owner, Cheryl, is friendly and very easy to deal with in every way. I unreservedly recommend this condo to everybody considering a vacation in paradise!!

Clean, organized, well stocked with a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We found that the condo was really clean and organized and it was filled with everything that we needed to make our stay truly enjoyable including coffee, tea, cookies laundry detergent, dryer sheets, beach towels, and extra paper products. We would definitely consider renting this unit again. Mahalo for all the little things that made a huge difference.

Owner's Response: Thank you for for the review and for noticing the little extras we try to have in the unit. We like to leave enough coffee and tea to get our guests started on their vacation in case they did not get to the store. Nothing worse than having to get up in the morning without coffee:) We would love to have you folks stay again the next time you come to Maui. Mahalo, Cheryl and John

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located in Kihei afforded easy access to Kamaole Beaches 2 & 3. Located within walking distance to several restaurants and shops .The unit had all condo amenities you could want to make you feel your at home. Everything was in good shape from the ground maintenance, building maintenance, to the condo itself. The condo was super clean and well equipped. A good view of the ocean could be had from the lanai. Being on the 4th floor and in building 4 the condo was really quite.

Owner's Response: Aloha Brooke, Thank you for the lovely review. Some of the reasons we bought in Kamaole Sands is the closeness to some of the best beaches, the beauty of the property and the ease to get to nearby restaurants. I will often put the Tommy Bahama beach chair on my back and walk down to Kamaole I when we are staying at the condo. It is a lovely walk past the other Kamaole beaches. Mahalo...we hope to see you all again on your next trip to Maui.

Fantastic condo in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time staying here. Close to the beach, close to the shops, and close to food. The condo was extremely clean, with obvious thought put into the look and flow. The condo was stocked with pretty much everything you could need. Cannot wait to come back!

Beautiful Home Away

  • 5 of 5

This condo was amazingly equipped. The kitchen had everything needed - including a rice cooker! Lovely large beach towels and beach chairs for 6, along with a cooler - made day tripping to the beach easy.

Excellent "special additions" to help keep your day to day needs, basic kitchen spices, dish and dish washer soap, laundry soap, some shampoo and body wash...all were very appreciated.

The condo was well spaced and provided lots of room even with our full compliment of 6 !

I would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic condo - loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

I would like to start by saying a huge thank you to Cheryl and John for allowing us to stay at their amazing Kamaole Sands condo. My wife and I stayed at the condo from Oct 30-Nov 10, 2017 - we were there for our honeymoon, and our first visit to Maui, and we will definitely be back!

The location of the condo is fantastic! The condo is centrally located in South Maui - and is a (relatively) short drive to anywhere on the island, whether you're looking to explore West Maui, leave for a snorkel adventure from Maalaea Harbor, set off on the Road to Hana or head up Haleakala to see a famous sunrise. It is also close to some great beaches - our favorites included Kam III - right across the street from the condo - perfect for lounging, boogie boarding and amazing sunsets. We also saw/swam with turtles every day at Kam III, which was quite amazing.

Our other favourites included Big Beach in Makena, and Sugar Beach (where you can walk for miles and miles) - both are only a short drive away.

The listing is 100% accurate, the condo is exactly as shown in the photos - although the photos don't do the condo justice.

The amenities were as described and then some.

We particularly loved:

- all of the beach gear including chairs, umbrellas, floaties and boogie boards.

- The fully stocked kitchen, with all of the pots/pans/cooking utensils you could possibly need

- The tupperware!! (which allowed us to store leftovers and prepare lunches for long beach days)

The condo was absolutely spotless when we arrived. As the listing notes, Cheryl and John live on the island, and take care of the maintenance and cleaning themselves, and the pride of ownership shines through. The condo was recently renovated and everything still looks brand new.

Cheryl and John provided great customer service! We didn't end up having any questions about the condo, as all of our questions were answered in their handy welcome package, and the binder of appliances. They also included club cards for Safeway and Foodland to make sure you get the best deals on groceries during your stay.

We wrote Cheryl once during our stay to make sure we had seen all of her favorite sites. She responded quickly and was more than happy to recommendations.

Thank you Cheryl and John, we loved your condo. We will certainly recommend it to friends and family, and can't wait to come back!

Mahalo, Cheryl and John

Maui has a treasure trove of places to go to enjoy the beauty of the island. From the top of Haleakala to the beaches in Kihei the island is just an amazing mixture of different ecosystems, lifestyles and cultures.

After over 40 years here I am still quite frequently awed by the beauty around me and truly feel blessed to call this place home.

I am always available to our guests to help them find the perfect places for them to better enjoy this wonderful place on the earth.
