This condo was very Hawaiian! Located across the street from the ocean ! Very good stay
Kamaole Sands is a great complex with lots of amenities, but we were a bit disappointed in the unit.
This was our second visit to Maui & staying at Kamaole Sands. We had 5 adults & 1 infant on this trip so the size of the unit worked perfectly for us. Prior to booking I reached out to inquire about a few questions and received a timely response. All our check in information was provided in great detail prior to our arrival which made arriving late very easy.
The downstairs bedroom was set up with 2 single beds and a crib and we even found a high chair in the closet. The crib & highchair were great for traveling with an infant. A fold out bed was set up in the middle of the living room area. The mattress on the fold out bed was too short for the frame and probably is more suited for younger kids, so was a bit uncomfortable for an adult. It was also a bit of a pain always needing to maneuver around the bed in the middle of the living room to access the patio or if we wanted to use the couch or chairs, but we made it work.
There were no hand towels or washcloths in either bathroom, so thankfully there were enough bath towels to get by. Each bathroom also had burned out light bulbs, which possibly was intentional since they were both located in the same spot over the shower??
The unit could definitely use a good cleaning. We moved the two single beds together in the downstairs bedroom and found old food crumbs, dead bugs, and lots of dust underneath. Under the upstairs bed was also quite dirty. The glass light over the kitchen table would probably provide a lot more light if the dust was cleaned off the inside, as it was pretty thick. The bathroom, pantry, & closet doors were very dirty above and below the door handles and could use a good wipe down. On the surface the unit was clean but a good deep cleaning is for sure needed.
We anticipated the upstairs loft to be a bit warm based on prior reviews; however, between the squeaky ceiling fan & dripping shower facet sleeping was sometimes a bit difficult. The AC unit did help, but was noisy as noted in previous reviews.
Since one of the questions asked prior to booking was about the beach accessories, we were disappointed to find only 1 beach chair & 2 umbrellas (1 being broken). However, there were several boogie boards, floating noodles, & a blow-up infant floaty which was great.
The kitchen was stocked well but could use more silverware to accommodate 6 people.
With a little cleaning, maintenance & making sure the accessories are in usable condition we would consider this unit again
Beautiful location, roomy unit but needs upgrading and some better lanai furniture
Kamaole Sands resort is an excellent place to stay when in Kihei (grounds are kept immaculately, pool area is great & it is literally across the street from some of the best beaches, great BBQ areas for each building, at Christmas it was all decorated up, no keys to worry about as is all door & gate codes to get around). This particular unit is on the 4th (top) floor so has a loft bedroom & there is plenty of room on the main level. However, as per previous reviews, it definitely needs some updating & maintenance. I would stay at this resort again, but probably try for another unit on the top floor unless it's upgraded.
I want to address some of the previous comments I have read about this unit. The good news is, it does not get direct sunlight any time of the day so it stays cooler. We did not have to use the so called noisy when on the balcony air conditioner. The fans were sufficient for us. The bad news is, it does not get direct sunlight so yes, it is dark at times. There are plenty of lights about but the shades are heavy so don't emit much light. It does take some time to figure out what lights & plugs are associated with each electrical switch & on the last day we looked at the remote that we thought was associated with the ac that turned out to operate the main living area fan & overhead light - wish I had known as it was kind of dangerous climbing those stairs at night when all the lights were out (so find the remote & use it). Yes there is a switch for the dining room light but as the dial for the controller is missing, I can see why previous people couldn't get it to work - just push the middle peg in & voila - dining room light (or get a dial).
Oh, those kitchen knives - yikes - we borrowed a sharpening steel to get a bit of an edge on them. As the knives are just stored open in a drawer they get dull really quickly as they are just thrown in. Suggest a knife block & sharpening steel so someone doesn't get hurt trying to cut with such dull knives. There are not as many kitchen gadgets as previously described (lacking was a bbg brush for sauce & a general set of tongs for turning food on the bbq (not the tongs that are used for coals). The unit overall is clean & if there is a problem, it was taken care of quickly.
And please, it is so pleasant on the lanai overlooking the grounds but so uncomfortable - invest in a nice table and chairs - we sat outside most of the time & it would have been nice to eat out there as well.
Very Very dark
after a week we still had no idea how to turn the dining table lights on, tried every switch in the house. The condo was way too dark, even with all the lamps on it was hard to see.
The grounds at Kamaole Sands are beautiful and the pool was lovely.
We were looking forward to our return trip to Maui after 12 years to visit families with new grand children. The condo was nice enough but was in need of an adequate air conditioner!!! When you can get Into the condo at 4 pm the temperature was almost unbearable! We then realized there was only one small air conditioner in living room that took almost 2 days to cool down the immediate room. So we all had terrible nights of fitful sleep due to the heat. There were several fans but they were pretty ineffectual. At first we thought of opening the door to lanai but quickly realized the air conditioner vented out there so it was even hotter. Being older we always enjoyed lanai sitting. But due to the heat and the fact there were no comfortable chairs out there. Only 4 plastic folding chairs and a wooden bench with no cushion. Other than that the condo was fine. The pool area was also very comfortable. Thank you for sharing your condo with our family!
Spent 5 weeks at this condo, it is in a great location with nice views of the pool and the beautiful grounds. I was disappointed with the Lanai furniture which consisted of a folding card table and plastic folding chairs which were not very comfortable. We love to be out on the Lanai but we found ourselves sitting inside where the furniture was more comfortable. Condo was reasonably clean however the carpet was quite stained. Kitchen was well equipped with lots of appliances but I would suggest bringing your own high quality knife. The cabinets are showing wear and the cabinet door under the kitchen sink had a hinge issue and did not close at all. Washer and Dryer are full size and high end. A small cooler would also be a very nice addition. Condo location is quite with elevator access close by. All in all we had a very relaxing time in Maui.
Kihei’s Kamaole Sands is a wonderful 15 acre property located directly across from Kamaole Beach III ( One of our best beaches). The ideal location, spacious grounds, and complete amenities make Kamaole Sands the ideal estate for your family’s Maui vacation. World class golf, shopping, dining, and ocean activities are all just a short drive away. Some of Maui’s best beaches are within easy walking distance, perfect for sunbathing, swimming and romantic sunset strolls.
Located in the center of beautiful South Maui, the Kamaole Sands resort is very convenient to all of the best beaches, dining and fun the area has to offer.
Most resorts have mandatory resort fees, which sometimes do not even include parking. Food is also quite expensive, so having your own kitchen (if only to make a quick breakfast) does your vacation more pleasant.
If you need a babysitter, We can also recommend trustworthy ladies who love children and would watch your love ones for a reasonable price.
If you need a Chaffeur, we can arrange that too.
If you need groceries in your arrival we can arrange that as well
