About the property

Bldg 7, Ground Floor, Full Kitchen, Well Stocked, A/C, Affordable South Maui

Put up your “out of office” message and place a hold on the mail: your laid-back Hawaiian vacation awaits at this 1 Bedroom, 2 bath condo in the long-time popular Kamaole Sands Resort located in South Maui.

Memories are just waiting to be made here at our little slice of paradise that we affectionately call “Pineapple Place”! When you look back, you'll remember the peace of your home away from home, sand and surf of Kamaole III Beach just across the street, the amazing resort amenities, and the beauty of Maui.


The ground-floor unit sits in a highly sought-after building in the inner courtyard, with incredible views of the lushly-landscaped grounds. To match the courtyard views is peace that comes from being away from the main road and resort pool.

Inside, tasteful island décor includes local art and Hawaiian accents throughout. Spend quiet nights relaxing in the living room with cozy sofa that doubles as a sleeper for the kids or extra guests. Open the sliding glass doors and let the inside and outside merge. The covered lanai offers shade and a place to lounge, dine or watch the kids play in the grassy area.

From your favorite meals to beach snacks, the fully-equipped kitchen has everything you need for meal prep. Along with full-size appliances, you have all the cookware, dishes, and pantry basics you’ll need. Sit down to meals at the four-person table adjacent to the kitchen.

Drift off into dreamland in the bedroom, where a queen bed is outfitted with tropical bedding and a large window offers a tropical garden. The en-suite bathroom has a tub and shower combination. Another full bathroom provides additional getting-ready space with a large vanity and shower.

When the tropical sun is at its hottest, the trade winds typically sweep in to offer relief from the heat. You’ll also stay comfortable throughout the condo thanks to A/C and ceiling fans in the living room and master bedroom. Also, enjoy free Wifi throughout the property.

Pack your flip-flops and swimsuit—we’ll take care of everything else with a list of amenities that goes on and on to ensure you feel at home…stackable washer and dryer, on-island contact available 24/7, bath towels, and bed linens. You also have access to everything you need for the beach including over-sized beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, ice chests, and sand toys.


Kamaole Sands resort boasts over 15 acres of tropical grounds including palm trees, plumeria trees, orchid walls, birds of paradise and fountains.

Hang out by the large pool with plenty of deck chairs to relax. There’s also two hot tubs, a kiddie pool, gym, snack cart, tennis courts, and ping pong. The on-site concierge is your go-to for island excursions and local restaurant recommendations. Join the free Wednesday Mai Tai party and enjoy live Hawaiian music; fun for couples and families alike.


Right across the street, Kamaole III Beach offers family-friendly fun including swimming, boogie boarding, snorkeling, turtle sightings, and sandcastle-building. The beach has lifeguards and a spacious grassy area for front row seats to the spectacular sunsets.

We’re situated on the sunny, dry side of Maui, putting you near some of the best beaches in Hawaii. There's so many, you could visit a different beach each day! Spend one day relaxing and sunbathing and the next getting an adrenaline rush boogie boarding, surfing, or stand up paddle boarding.

Kihei Town is laid-back and low-key with dining, nightlife, and shopping, most within walking distance. Just one mile away is Wailea, known for its world-class resorts, beaches, dining, upscale shopping, golf courses and spas.

Our On-Island Contact is Edy Daniel of Maui Vacation Rental Support. During your stay she is available on island to assist with your needs. We are always available, too!

Our Transient Accommodation # is TA-170-911-5392-01.

Note: The resort is painting all exteriors of buildings over two phases with the final phase between April to November 2018. This beautification project will temporarily disrupt our normal resort ambiance. Our building is scheduled for May 14 through June 23, 2018, and our calendar is blocked accordingly to not disrupt our guest stays. This project will also temporarily suspend assigned parking and an open parking system has been implemented to ease parking during this time. We apologize for this inconvenience as the resort makes this valuable improvement.

About Keren and Gary Yowell

We visited Kamaole Sands Resort for 25+ years. To share in our experience was our three sons and Grandma. During our many vacations, we explored the resort, beaches, Kihei Town and all that Maui offers. We felt so comfortable at Kamaole Sands and on Maui that we couldn't help but return year after year. Soon we began to dream of owning our own unit and sharing it with others. With our boys grown we decided we could give our dream wings. We have enjoyed creating a comfortable and economical space to share with couples and families. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to share it with you and yours!

Keren and Gary Yowell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Keren and Gary Yowell chose Kihei

It never crossed our mind to choose any other resort than Kamaole Sands. We had visited it so many times that it became a home to our family. The resort grounds are spacious, beautiful and well cared for. Kamaole Beach Park is across the street and it is one of the best family beaches in South Maui. The property grounds are easy to walk, no steep inclines, flat paths throughout. A front desk awaits arrivals 24/7, 365 days a year. The resort offers great amenities like a large pool, kiddie pool, two hot tubs, tennis courts, small workout room, concierge activity desk, a snack cart at the pool and many more. Icing on the cake is upscale Wailea, just a couple miles away, as well as 7 more miles of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world to enjoy. It's an affordable gateway to all that is Maui!

What makes this condo unique

Building 7 is the perfectly located in the resort. It's an easy 3 minute walk to the beach. And less of a walk to the the pool. Building 7 avoids the main road noise and pool noise. Other features we appreciate are bypassing the elevators, having a view and easy access to the spacious inner court grounds, and its solar orientation makes our unit cool and comfortable. Another great plus is that the size of the Kamaole Sands units are so much more spacious than than the pricey resorts. For example, our one bedroom, two bath unit boasts 818 square feet, which is more than double many hotel rooms making it an affordable vacation option on Maui.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We both agreed that we have been thoroughly spoiled by staying in your lovely and well located unit. We love the privacy that your place offers, and the fact that everything is so accessible to us, for example the beach, the barbecue, the lovely gardens from the lanai. We don't have many people walking by at night-------and the bed is SO COMFY.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Linda for your lovely review! Thanks for sharing about and enjoying our art work and touches. We like our place to have that Hawaiian vibe and of course not be over the top. All of the artists are local except for one which is from our home area in Northern California . Next time you come you will see a new metal piece that we are adding to welcome guests to our “Pineapple Place”. You are welcome back anytime ... our little slice of paradise is your yours, too! Aloha until then Keren and Gary.

Great Condo, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Maui, and our first stay at Kam Sands. We loved this place! Keren and Gary answered all our questions and were easy to get in touch with during the booking stage. The check in process when we arrived was smooth and the front desk was quite helpful. The condo was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped with cooking essentials including a few pantry items, and it had everything needed for a beach vacation (chairs, towels, cooler, boogie boards, etc.). The ground floor unit is only a few steps from the BBQ area, and the pool is only a minute's walk. We really enjoyed the (FREE!) Wednesday afternoon Mai-Tai party at the pool! The beach is across the street and there are restaurants and shops nearby. There was also an onsite concierge, which we used to book a couple adventures, very helpful and even gave us a 2 for 1 dinner cruise! Already thinking about when we can go back and would highly recommend this condo! Great time!

Owner's Response: Much mahalo for your great review and sharing great info with future guests. Once we found Kamaole Sands (25+ years ago... but who is counting) we never wandered further because it offers so much! We are pleased to hear you will be back and that you appreciate our brand of customer service and the happy home away from home we have created on that beautiful island in the middle of the Pacific. Much mahalo and aloha until next visit! Keren and Gary

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Family friendly complex. My parents rented this unit and it was perfect. We had a neighbouring unit which wasn't as well equipped or looked after. The Yowell's stayed in contact and were easy to deal with. We would rent this unit again.

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at KamSands 7-102 it made our vacation in Maui one of my favorites. The condo was perfect for us, small enough so it was easy to keep clean and stay close to each other and big enough to spread out and relax. This space was laid out in such a way that everything was easily accessible and what I really enjoyed was that all the light switches were labeled so you aren't clicking all the time trying to figure out what is what. Easy access to the beach and pools. Hot tub was fabulous and the shared grills right outside the condo to grill food for meals. The only thing that was disappointing was we weren't there in time for the mai tai party on Wednesday night. Maui and the KamSands is a wonderful, clean and very welcoming place to stay. Mahala nui loa to the owners for making us feel like ohana.

Owner's Response: Nancy and Claude, Mahalo for taking the time to leave your lovely and informative review of our condo and brand of service. Happy to hear you agree our place is the perfect mix of cozy and space just where you need it. Sounds like you enjoyed many of the resorts great amenities. We do hope that you come back soon for the free Wednesday afternoon Mai Tai party; it truly does embody ohana with live music and hula demonstrations. Aloha until next time! Keren and Gary

Great experience and appreciated the value.

  • 4 of 5

The unit we booked was exceptional and homey. While the resort fee amount was not ridiculous, the advertised items it provided—daily paper, weekly magazine—could have been delivered or more availability locations (versus at the main check in lobby).

Owner's Response: Much mahalo Christopher for taking the time to provide your review. We are pleased to hear that you found our condo exceptional and homey. We do work hard to provide that exact experience and feeling to our guests. Also thank you for sharing your appreciation of the value of our property. Maui can be expensive and we strive to offer a great product while still keeping our rates reasonable. By the way, I'm not sure if you were aware that the daily paper is also available at the resort pool area; that is usually where we pick ours up our daily copy since we always visit the pool. I will share your thoughts with the resort management. We do hope that you will visit again! Aloha until then! Keren and Gary
