Great Place to Stay
The condo at Wailana Sands is on the 2nd floor of an 8-unit complex. Dona was great and timely with communication. All kitchen and bath ammenities present in the unit. Nice overlook of lawn and pool area from the lanai. Although it was kind of small, the unit fit our needs perfectly. Our daughter loved the pool. ! For us, the fact that Wailana Sands is located at the back of a cul-de-sac of several small ( less than 20 units) condo complexes and not around a bunch of "corporate" or huge condo resorts was very appealing. And the other people staying at Wailana Sands! Very friendly and full of Aloha.! Have not stayed anywhere on vacation where the "people next door" talked to you at length. Seemed everyone knew each other form years past. Although we were ''strangers" they welcomed us with bigh smiles. Be sure to go to the impromptu happy hour every sunset. The beach is just across the street, and while it is not Kam beach, it was great to walk and watch for whales. I actually liked the less trafficed stretch. Seems the locals like this area of beach as well, and I like that. The Whale sancturary is a short walk down the beach and well worth checking out. Honu always on the rocks of the fish pond there. The complex is located at the "top" of Kihei so it was location perfect to day trip from.
In short, the place is awesome. We'll be back (hopefully there is an opening there for the time we plan to go!).

Great location! Price made lack of air conditioning acceptable.
We stayed here October 18 through the 25th. We found the condo extremely clean with towels and dishes/utensils and cookware to use. No foil or saran wrap for leftover storage. Also had 2 snorkels/masks and beach chairs. The locals told us it has been unseasonably warm this year so the 2 ceiling fans, 3 small fans and 2 box fans were used 24/7 but the afternoons were still very warm inside. The pool made all the difference, we hung out there with a cooler (found in the unit) of drinks until the sun went down. The pool was also a nice place to visit with the other tenants. The blind over the bed didn't raise making the afternoon breeze difficult to get through. Can't beat the location, central to all the excursions we booked, and only a minutes walk to a beach to play in, well worth the inexpensive rate. Definitely outdated, many extension cords and power strips throughout for the fans and charging our electronics, not a big deal. The fridge and freezer smelled a little like fish. Everything was acceptable for the price except for the roaches in the kitchen area. Not many, just big enough not to be able to say they were ants. When we called the owners they were quick to get a bug man out but it made using the dishes and cookware less trustworthy unless we washed them first. We were also reluctant to leave dishes to wash later in case they drew more out. We laughed about the dresser whose drawers we couldn't open without placing a hand on the top to avoid tipping it over, and the 3rd drawer down had the bottom replaced with a smaller piece leaving a gap. Again, well worth the price for a location we couldn't have afforded otherwise. All in all not sorry we booked this unit.
Great location. Dona is a Fantastic property manager.
1. Some furniture repairness. Couldn't use some units, couldn't open/close.
2. Pest control!!!!!!! A must!!!!!!
3. AC. Very hot. The fans do not help.
4. Better cleaning. Especially in the kitchen and bathroom.
5. Mapping how to find the property and how to use the code at the first arrival. If it's night, it's difficult to find.
We tried to accommodate every request from Olga. She did not know entering the code to the lock box gives access to the key to the door, but does not automatically open the door! Once she discovered Sugar Beach she relaxed, but maybe not enough to instantly acclimatize to Hawaiian heat. The fans are fine! The bug situation has been addressed, and we have ongoing visits from the Bug Man. Too bad that they picked Olga’s visit to appear! After a free night, and a late check-out will never rent to her again! Aloha!
August 8 to August 12
Nice place for the price! No Keys in the lock box when we arrived but we managed to have access to the condo and the day after we were able to get in touch with Dona and everything was resolved. Even if many fans were provided, the condo was very hot so my recommendation to the owners would be to invest in an AC. Overall, this place was still nice and quiet and Dona was helpfull and always easy to contact. Thanks Dona 😊�
