Robert S Bayer purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Robert S Bayer chose Lahaina
We first bought a 2 bedroom timeshare at the Sands of Kahana in 2003 sight unseen. We were promised by the realtor that the Sands of Kahana were the biggest 2 bedroom condos on Maui. We wanted a big place since we had the 4 young children. When we first checked into our unit, we couldn't believe how big the unit felt. We then had a great family vacation and fell in love with the Sands of Kahana complex. So, we decided that we wanted to be a place outright that we could use anytime during the year. With our growing family we decided to get a 3 bedroom place. Although there are only a few in the complex, we were so happy to find a 5th floor, corner unit with two lanais that is right on the beach.
What makes this Condo unique
There are fabulous ocean views from the lanais, living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom.

Wow. Best views!
Huge condo with lots of space for our family. Fabulous lanai where you can sit and watch the whales. It’s not the most modern looking but it’s very comfortable and well equipped. We really appreciated the huge cupboard full of beach gear, including boogie boards. It’s a bit warmer in the back bedrooms compared with the air conditioned master that faces the sea, but there are fans and you can take advantage of the afternoon breeze because there are lots of screened windows.
We really like Kahana because there’s just enough shops and eateries to give you choices, without it being over developed. Love the easy access to our favourite beaches (DT Flemming and Slaughterhouse), where the waves are exciting!
This was a great place to stay! The condo was very clean and spacious. It fit 6 of us very comfortably. The kitchen had all the basic stuff, and it was so nice to be able to do laundry on site. The views were nothing less than spectacular!! We enjoyed meeting people here as well. Great atmosphere for kids. We will definitely come back again. It made our trip a very memorable one, we brought my parents along with us ( who are not travelers) they had a wonderful time.
Mahana sunset condo
Amazing property. On the sand. Ample free parking Concierge. Close to restaurants. Beautiful interior. Perfect Maui getaway for a family.
The condo is in serious need of repairs and updating.
The quality of the accommodations is seriously overrated. Damaged chairs, broken shower doors, all the sliding closet doors falling apart, vacuum doesn’t work, cooking pans warped. The list goes on....
It is unfortunate your stay at our place was not what you expected and I was surprised to receive your comments on January 17th when your stay ended on January 2nd.
I called my Maui on site property manager right away to discuss your issues. They told me they did not hear from you during your stay regarding any of the issues you mentioned. I understand it rained often during your stay. Unfortunately, I cannot control the weather. So, I imagine you were in the unit quite a bit and could have been available for them to quickly correct some of your issues.
My property manager is available 7 days a week and I pay them well to make sure my guests are taken care of during their stay. The contact information for my property manager properties is emailed to my guests prior to their departure and is also posted in the unit. My property manager personally calls my guests before their arrival to introduce themselves and ensure there are no issues for guests navigating to our unit from the airport.
My property manager staff also does a pre arrival inspection of my unit and if for some reason they miss something, I emphasize to my guests to contact my property manager or myself anytime during their stay. We truly can’t correct the problem unless we know about it.
For the record, in the past few months, we added new drapes in all the bedrooms and the living room. We had painting done in 2 of the bedrooms, the kitchen and entry hallway. My wife and I personally bought new kitchen appliances, pots and pans and other kitchen items along with a vacuum.
Bottom line: Many of the items you listed could have been easily corrected during your 10 day stay at our place if they were reported. In fact, my property manager said many of the issues you mentioned have already been taken care of. We understand you spend a lot of money to vacation on Maui and if something is not right, please let my property manager or me know right away so we can work quickly to correct it.
This resort is perfect for families. The beach was perfect, the restaurant next to the pool was handy. All the staff is great, grounds are clean, we will definitely be coming back!
We (my husband, our two kids, my mom, my sister, her husband, their son, and I)had a wonderful time at this resort/condo! Though there are some updates that could be done, all areas were always clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and always friendly. We could see whales and turtles from our front patio! The beach was not ‘little kid friendly’(big waves most days) , but the pool definitely was! Our two older kids enjoyed the big waves for boogie boarding! All in all we would stay here again.
Our condo at the Sands of Kahana is located in Kahana on the west side of Maui. Kahana is about 5 miles north of Kaanapali and about 8 miles north of Lahaina. Kahana is a great location because we are located close to many of the West Maui tourist attractions however, Kahana is a residential area of West Maui and we have a lot less pedestrian and car traffic in our area. We feel Kahana is a perfect distant from the tourist trap feeling of Lahaina and Kaanapali. In Kahana, you can truly enjoy the beauty and tranquility of west Maui.
