About this listing

We renovated this condo in the winter of 2013, it is a 2nd floor unit in the Kamaole Sands Resort right across the street from Kamaole 3 beach. The resort is on 15 beautiful acres, it has a great pool area, fitness/activity center,outdoor barbecues,and tennis courts.

The space

Check out our website (URL HIDDEN) for a video tour. We have fully renovated the unit as of December 2013 with new all wood cherry kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops along with upgrades to both bathrooms, new paint throughout, and we have replaced most of the furnishings.

The condo is on the second floor, easily cooled by the trade winds, it's quite private, on the quiet side of the resort in building # 8 at one end of the building. Close to the stairs and far enough away from the elevator so you are not disturbed by anyone coming or going. Your assigned parking spot is nearby.

The unit has free WiFi and cable TV, is fully furnished with A/C in the kitchen / living area and can accommodate four adults.

The bedroom has a new queen size mattress, 52" ceiling fan, 28" Flat screen TV, and a fully upgraded master bath with a tub/shower, new cabinets, granite top, with full tub/shower(URL HIDDEN)
There is beach friendly tile throughout the condo, the living room has a new sofa bed, 50" LCD flat screen TV, blue ray player, Cable TV, Netflix, and CD/FM stereo. There is also a lending library of books, a few board games and puzzles.

The guest bathroom has a new glass shower enclosure, cabinets with granite top and the washer/dryer.

The kitchen is newly renovated with all wood cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, and equipped with new appliances, range, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, ice maker, and accessories, the outdoor barbecues are just a short walk away.
The dining area is well lit with a new rattan dining set and bar stools for seating at the island.

The condo has a large private lanai (balcony) 166 sq ft ( most lanai's in Kam Sands are only 69 sq ft) to enjoy a great cup of Hawaiian coffee in the morning or to sun tan privately in the afternoon. The lanai easily accommodates 4 or more people for meals and has a cabinet stocked with beach umbrella, chairs, mats, coolers, and kids toys for use during your time on Kamaole 3 beach just a 3-4 minute walk from the door.

The resort is on 15 acres, the grounds are meticulously maintained with lush gardens, tropical flowers, fountains, waterfalls, and Koi ponds. The large pool area has 2 Jacuzzi's, a fitness/activity center, there are many outdoor barbecues, and 4 tennis courts.

The condo was exactly as pictured. Clean, great location- could walk across the street to the beach or down a couple blocks to shops and food. Location is perfect in Kihei, 5-10 minute drive to anything you would need. Barb was easy to get in touch with too with questions I had before arrival. Will definitely look to stay here in the future on a return trip to Maui!!

Location was great, the unit was well equipped and very nice, loved having access to the pool and hot tub and easy access to beaches.

The condo was very clean and well-stocked, but a bit more budget-oriented than the beautiful pictures conveyed. The room air conditioner was very loud and only in the living room. Several appliances are in need of repair, and rattle. Its a bit dark: The bedroom window curtains are on the outside public hallway, and the only other windows are the Lanai, which is under an overhang. Overall, the condo is fine, and might even be good value depending on the price, but we were bothered by these things during our extended stay.

Response from Barb:
I usually don't respond to guest reviews but I don't understand how the pictures can convey anything other than what the condo looks like. We have renovated our condo, it may not be perfect but J.R. needs to stay in one of the circa 1983 units in Kamaole Sands before he puts down ours. Please read our other reviews before you make a decision.

Barb's place is an oasis! Morning coffee on the lanai with birds singing. Cool evening drinks on the lanai with a cross breeze. Walking across the street with a beach chair to watch the sunset on the soft grass of Kamaole beach park III. Walking a few blocks to dinner. All of these things are easy at Barb's!

Excellent place. Was exactly like the description and picture. Very well stocked from kitchen to towels to having beach chairs and snorkel stuff. Fairly quiet with a nice pool and hot tub.

This was a lovely spot for a trip to Maui- the communication was excellent, the condo was extraordinarily comfortable and the nearby beach is perfect for cookouts, swimming, snorkelling, and sunbathing. You won't find better at the price- and little personal touches make it feel like a home away from home.

Our stay on Maui was absolutely amazing and we were generally pleased with Barb’s condo. The condo is in an excellent location. It’s roughly a half hour to the airport and a short drive from many popular locations (Maui is pretty small after all). Within walking distance are the Kamaole Beaches (Kam 1, 2, and 3). The closest beach is Kamaole Beach 3 which is a 3-5 minute walk (since the condo is in the back of the resort). Upon arrival, the condo was very clean, but we soon found ourselves running out of cleaning supplies such as paper towels, laundry detergent, and dishwasher soap. We anticipated that we would be given sufficient supplies for our 10 day stay, but, unfortunately this was not the case. Thankfully, our on island contact was able to drop off some additional cleaning supplies for us. It was very convenient to have a washer/dryer in the condo. However, the washing machine broke three days before our departure. This was inconvenient and frustrating to deal with. The kitchen of the condo was well stocked with cooking necessities like pots and pans as well as some food items. We also came to the condo expecting to find boogie boards in the Lanai closet due to the posted picture of boogie boards being in the Lanai closet. When we couldn’t locate them, we asked Barb. She told us that, due to liability issues, they no longer provided boogie boards to guests. This was a disappointment. Of course, renting boogie boards was extremely easy. Though we were up and about early most mornings, to get the most out of our time on Maui, the few mornings that we did sleep in we were usually awoken by loud trucks and cars passing near the condo. The condo does have air conditioning, but most nights it was unnecessary due to the trade winds on the island. When the air conditioner was used we noticed that the bedroom was by far the warmest room in the condo. Even with strategic fan placement, we couldn't get the bedroom to cool off. The property that the condo is on is very well maintained, from the grounds to the pool and hot tubs. Lastly, we were extremely grateful for the on island contact, seeing as it frequently took Barb a very long time to get back to us regarding inquiries - regularly 12-24 hours. We were generally pleased with the condo and absolutely loved Maui! We are certainly planning to return one day.
