About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)


This is an inviting one bedroom, two bathroom unit with granite counter tops, new stainless steel appliances, floor to ceiling mirrors, custom ceiling fans, art and tile. The concrete construction allows for a very quiet experience.

Our unit has been remodeled extensively with the updates being done nearly every year. With new fixtures, hand carved mahogany entertainment center, designer palm lamps, faux paint, ceiling fans, new TV/DVD in master and living room, king bed, A/C in living and master, washer and dryer. New outdoor living furniture for your comfort, to experience total relaxation while enjoying the breathtaking lanai views. You will be hard pressed to find a more unique and whimsical unit on the island.

We had Island Upholstery and Window Coverings install plantation shutters in the master so you could get natural light and still have privacy, as well as beautiful bamboo shades in the living room with a 'black out' liner for the night. As well as Maui closet company install custom closet in the master bedroom, and a custom designed Maui built wall bed with a queen sized Serta mattress, lights, shelves and night stand. It is spectacular and far more comfortable than a pull out sofa.

Our condo is in building number five which is one of the most sought after buildings in the complex. You are close to everything in the complex, but far enough away to not hear road noise. Enjoy the beautiful view down through the gardens with just a hint of ocean view from your private lanai. We are not near the elevator or garbage chute, and you can walk less than 50 yards to the pools and hot tubs.

It is very well appointed with extras like an iron, hair dryer, tupperware, kid friendly cups, sharp knives, spices, coffee cups, blender, toaster, etc. We leave the lanai closet open with boogie boards, beach mats, coolers, chairs, and two bins of floaties and toys.

Kamaole Sands is a very nice property that has been voted 'Best Condominium on Maui' by the travel industry three times. The location right on the Kihei/Wailea border is tough to beat!

The location of our condo allows for a short walk to world famous Kamaole Beach. The warm clear water is ideal for snorkeling or enjoying the family friendly waves. It is a lush, 15 acre property that truly represents the Aloha spirit. The pool area was recently renovated and the decking was replaced with beautiful flagstone. You will find two jet spas, a large pool and a children's wading pool. You will be walking distance to many shops and restaurants and some of Maui's only lifeguard supervised beaches. Several world class golf courses, resorts and restaurants are minutes away. For the price, you won't find a better value on Maui.

About Monica


We are from Kirkland Washington where we work as a firefighter and nurse raising our two daughters! We love maui and try to get away to the island whenever we can.

Monica purchased this condo in 2016

Why Monica chose Kihei

We chose to buy in Kamaole Sands partly because of the wonderful location near amazing beaches, shopping and activities and partly because the complex itself is big enough to offer great amenities and small enough to feel like home.

What makes this condo unique

We are very close to the pool, but you can't see it from our unit which means less noise all around. Plus, we are one of the few ground floor units that looks down the grounds towards the water.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo has a very homey feel to it. John loved the Internet service he tends to live on his computer. I liked the island decor it made the condo feel like the Paradise we are in.

I feel the locations was wonderful. Very convenient to both the pool and the walk to the beach (which we walked everyday). We especially liked that being that close to the pool we still didn't hear the pool noise or people walking back and forth. It was very quiet.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, easy access to amenities, the king size bed + Murphy bed and two full baths made it so comfortable and convenient for our family of 3. The beach umbrella + canvas wagon were so great to have. We used the wagon every day going back and forth to the beach and on walks, loved not having to bring a stroller for our 4yr old. This condo was well-stocked, clean and spacious as mentioned. Loved it, can’t wait to come back and stay again!

Beautiful property, super cute condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Monica's condo. The location could not be better and my boys enjoyed easy outdoor access to the pool as well as the ability to roam around and pass the football on the grass. The condo was well equipped including a nice refridgerator, quiet dishwasher, and awesome blender for your evening cocktails on the lanai. I spent alot of time on the lanai drinking coffee, cocktails, or just chilling out with my hubby and kiddos after a long day at the beach or pool. The beach (Kameole 3) is a 5 minute walk from the unit, Two other beaches are within easy 10-15 walking distance. The decor was adorable, the beds ultra comfortable including very nice bedding and pillows. The air conditioners and ceiling fans (one in bedroom and one in living room) were very helpful at night to keep us comfortable. The fold down murphy bed in the living area was comfortable. There was an issue with the shower temperature nozzle, but we left a note for maintenance upon check out and there is another shower that we used. Overall, we had a great time at this condo and would definitely book again. It worked perfectly for our family of two adults and two boys (ages 7 and 10). Again, the location in building 5 is ideal. Close to the pool but not in direct view and noise was minimal. A quiet location with stunning garden views. LOVE The ground unit.

Perfect location and set up for a small family ground floor easy access close to pool.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days and really enjoyed our time in this condo. Cozy and nicely decorated getting you in the holiday mood even if you arrive at night and can't see the surroundings. Then you wake up and look out the linaih and see beautifully manicured lawns and gardens. Steps away from the pool (a nice option if the waves get too big for the smaller kids or you are already cleaned up from the beach) and still just a few minute walk down to the beach. Exceptionally easy with the folding wagon, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, mats and beach toys all provided! Well stocked kitchen with the appliances you need. Ocean view from the room is limited but again its a close walk for sunsets. Relaxing on the porch after the kids are in bed is beauty. Easy access to the hwy or the scenic road closer to the ocean. 5 min drive from Safeway open 24hrs. We were there with close to 10 other families in other buildings and in our opinion we had the best location in the complex. Nice quiet, family oriented facility. We would definitely recommend staying in this condo and if we are fortunate enough to make it back to beautiful Maui we will look to book here again. Nate and Ange BC, Canada

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

We loved how kid friendly the complex and unit are and also how stocked the place was including beach stuff and an awesome blender! The beach across the street has some surprisingly good snorkeling! If we ever go back to Maui we definitely know where we will stay!

Lots of room and great location!

  • 4 of 5

Only reason it wasn’t a 5 was due to a slow draining shower. Otherwise, a great experience!

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here in February. Property is amazing! Feels like you are staying in a botanical garden. Very professional and friendly staff. The condo itself was perfect for 3 adults. The Murphy bed was a pleasant surprise as one of us is usually on a sofabed. Mattress was very comfortable. Kitchen was fully equipped, can’t think of a single thing that was missing. It was nice to have 2 full bathrooms and W/D. Everything was very clean and in great condition. Location was awesome as it is at the back of the property. The view from the lanai is what you see in the photos, not looking out onto other units at all. We would stay here again.

PS Kamaole Sands has a maitai party by the pool on Wednesdays, but we didn’t make it.
