Absolutely AMAZING! We loved every single minute of our stay in Maui. This condo is super clean, spacious, well equipped, beds are super comfy and the view is amazing! AC worked great, washer & dryer in the unit, stainless appliances, updated bathrooms - everything you could want! There were 7 of us total and we had plenty of room to spread out. Would 100% recommend this condo to everyone! Cindy is great to work with and very responsive! Don't wait - book this condo now! :)

My husband & I travelled to Maui with our 5 kids (ages 18 & up) & this was our home for 10 days. It was a gorgeous unit & property. Views from the condo can't be beat, and the owner was quick to respond with any questions we had. The only minor concerns we had were that the mattresses are very firm (not what we are used to), and the condo is very open, which means you hear everything. All the rooms had portable fans, so adding the white noise helped a lot. I would definitely stay there again, and hope someday we are able to. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us!

As a long-time timeshare owner at this resort I already knew it’s one of the best properties in West Maui, but we needed an extra bedroom for this year’s family trip so I rented this unit. It’s been beautifully updated (especially the bathrooms) and is very well equipped and maintained. The owner/host was very responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommend!

Absolutely wonderful 10 days on the ocean in Maui. A view to die for and all the amenities needed. Kitchen very well stocked, beds comfortable, spacious main rooms. Even the small restaurant in the complex offered surprisingly good food and typical Maui prices . Location is a little far for the “tourist” trips but not unreasonable with down town Lahaina being very close. Cynthia was Excellent at making us feel welcome and we will plan on coming back soon!

This is an exceptional property, fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The owner is friendly and responsive. The pictures listed do not do this place justice. The views are spectacular. In the early morning, we enjoyed coffee as we watched turtles swim by the beach. Having a closet full of beach essentials was a plus as we took full advantage both on the beach and by the pool. In the evening, we were in awe of the sunsets. We would definitely return. Thank you Cindy!

We had the most amazing stay. The condo was perfect and had all the amenities we needed. The location was excellent to satisfy all three generations. Kids favorite part was the pools, everyone was very friendly. Grandparents enjoyed afternoons on the patio taking in the view- which included whales and sea turtles! We never had to drive far for day trips. My son asked if we could come back for his birthday :)

We we’re so impressed with this property, it was clean, had a beautiful view and had more than enough supplies (toilet paper, dishwasher pods, dish soap, spices, fully stocked kitchen), we will definitely stay here again. Thanks

The owner was super helpful before we arrived! We loved the view of the ocean - very nice property. Our only comment is that the bed in the master bedroom - the sheets didn't stay on. And the bed in the loff was very squeaky. Other than that, the property was great and just want we wanted for a wonderful Maui stay.

We only stayed for five nights, but the unit was just beautiful! The view was just spectacular, we could even see whales from the balcony. It had everything we would have needed and more. Looking to rent in the Sands , this penthouse unit would be the perfect place. The loft was great. too!

This condo was roomy and easy to stay in. Kitchen - coffee maker for a pot and Kuerig for cups. They had a wonderful appoint of K cups to choose from. All appliances were great to use. Ice maker was handy. I appreciated having several Tupperware type containers for leftovers. Several seasonings left. Nothing in fridge…which was fine. Beds were comfortable. Fitted Sheet on ours didn’t stay on…again…not a big deal. There is a big sliding door between master and living space. Really opens up the view. The upper bedroom stayed a bit warmer…however…fans were great. Second bedroom downstairs has a door to give them privacy. View was awesome! We brought binoculars. We could see whales every day. Turtles only the last day. Waves were a bit rough most of our stay. Hot tub was HOT! Which we love. Second hot tub by kids area was a bit cooler…still great! Plenty of towels…and having laundry detergent and dryer sheets helped us rotate through the beach towels. The wagon, cooler and beach chairs were nice to have. Miso Phat was across street - rated highly for sushi. Nice to have little market across street also. The restaurant/bar on property was convenient. Bus goes by the property…just didn’t run late enough for us to use. There is a farmers market a few miles away on Saturdays and Wednesdays. On the day we arrived…west Maui was experiencing a water shortage…so water pressure was limited for a day or so. Not bad…and there was nothing that could be done. We survived and were happy we had AC! Parking was plentiful and close to elevator. We had a lovely celebration in a lovely condo. Thank you Cindy!

This was a great property! There were 6 of us in total, 2 parents and 4 adult children (21-25) It was stocked with everything we could need, including things to take into the ocean. The view was amazing! We were able to see turtles and whales by just stepping on to the veranda. The complex had a concierge service which was unexpected and so wonderful to use! If I had to find one thing wrong it would be the lack of privacy. There were no real doors on any of the rooms (including the bathrooms). Everything was a sliding door which didn't close completely. Other than that, I TOTALLY recommend this property.

The property is just as advertised and the pictures do not do it justice. Stunning views from inside the condo and multiple balconies. I saw turtles from the balcony. Well equipped kitchen and fun closet with games and toys. I liked having the washer and dryer. All laundry supplies included. There was plentiful parking. I would definitely stay here again.

December 2022
We really enjoyed our time at this property. Really nice beach and pool right there. Bonus that our kids got to see turtles every day while swimming! Great views, great condo, great location. Our kids are already asking to come back!

Six adults ranging in age from 50 to 79 here in Maui for 8 nights to celebrate a couple of birthdays and anniversaries. The condo was clean and well equipped, with a closet full of beach supplies and everything you could need in the kitchen. The 3 walk in showers were very nice. I’m a big guy and there was plenty of room. The pool and beach are just a short walk from the elevator, and my elderly father with mobility issues had minimal problems getting around the property. The restaurant on site is convenient, but a little underwhelming with so many other options for dining within a short distance. The downstairs king bed could use an upgrade, but otherwise this was a great space for 3 couples or a large family. The views from the lanai off the living room are spectacular and a nice spot to start and end each day. The AC and ceiling fans kept the unit cool, and a washer/dryer in the unit was convenient. We enjoyed our stay in this unit at the Sands of Kahana.

The penthouse was very nice. The furniture in family room could be updated as the pull out bed is very uncomfortable. You can't beat the beautiful views. All-in-all we really enjoyed our stay and would return.

Our family of 7 booked this property two weeks before COVID hit and postponed the trip. Needless to say, we were excited to finally arrive. The property and surrounding area were beautiful. The owners were in contact prior to arrival and answered any questions we had. There was more than enough room and the new renovations were gorgeous. The location was perfect as it is a short drive to beautiful beaches and restaurants. This was our third time on Maui and everyone agrees that this was by far the best placed we have stayed.

What a great find! The condo is so roomy and the kitchen so well equipped. Space for everyone to do their thing; sleep late or get up early to watch the rainbows while having coffee on the deck. Before arriving I was just a bit concerned about our just turned 3 year old grandson, being on the 8th floor, but once seeing the safety of the stairs and the deck we had no worries. The location is great as well as it is just a quick drive into Lahaina or to Kaanapali or Kapalua for dining. The owner made sure to get in touch to see if we had any questions or concerns, of which we had none. Very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this condo.

Our family of 8 had a great stay at the penthouse. The ocean views just can’t be beat. The home has everything you could possibly want and more, including lots of fun beach toys. It’s nicely updated and so comfortable. The location is fabulous, with a nice sandy beach below and several other pristine beaches for snorkeling within a few minutes drive. Highly recommend this place!

Location is great. Check in was nice and easy. View was exceptional. Unit was well stocked, anything you may need is here. Only reason I couldn’t give 5 stars is A/C is loud in the unit and it could use a few more minor upgrades, with that said I wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Communication was great from start to finish.

Our first visit to Hawaii and this place did not disappoint! My family of five (three daughters ages 16, 14, and 4) all were amazed and so excited when we first walked into this beautiful condo. It was everything we hoped it would be and more! The entire condo is clean, fresh, and airy. The view is top-notch. We saw whales and sea turtles daily. We throughly enjoyed the beach, pool, kiddie pool and hot tub. We also appreciated the pool toys, beach equipment, and large supply of nice towels. We had several meals at the restaurant by the pool but also enjoyed grilling our own dinner while looking out at the Pacific Ocean. It was a dream vacation and was really hard to say goodbye! Cindy was always timely, friendly, and professional with all communications and we are so thankful she shared her Maui home with us! Mahalo! And we can’t wait to come back someday!

On arrival our expectations were exceeded. The apartment was immaculate, well stocked with coffee, towels and soaps. Kitchen equipment along with dishes , glasses and utensils were like new. Cindy the owner called on the second day to make sure everything was in order.. I will recommend to our friends . Thank you Mahalo

As soon as we walked in we were greeted with the breathtaking views! The condo had plenty of space for our family of 5 and my daughters boyfriend, now fiancee after this trip, to gather together or have space to be on our own. Everything we needed was provided for us including plenty of beach essentials. Cindy was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. We had multiple flight issues! We really enjoyed snorkeling at local beaches, The Road to Hana, and our favorite was surf lessons at Royal Hawaiian. We loved exploring but would have been content relaxing at the condo! Thank you for an amazing stay!!

Loved: Location Space Lanai (multiple) Kitchen small appliances Resort Walkable Owners Updates (beds, doors to master, bathrooms) Could be improved: Tv/DVD equipment (old people like me can't operate it... I know, most people don't go to Maui to watch TV, but grandkids do! upgrade to add new tvs, DVD players, single universal remotes, so a dummy can operate) Outdoor furniture... add umbrella or shade/rain shield option, something with cushions. Overall....loved this place. Wish I owned it! Cindy and Bill are awesome owners. Frank and Amie S

I will highly recommend staying at this property. This home far exceeded our expectations. From the beginning our property owner Cindy was so warm and welcoming with updates leading up to our stay. On the day off she called to make sure everything was in order. From the moment we walked through the entrance we were so amazed with the stunning views of the ocean. This place was so homey and had everything we needed in place. The location was perfect with one of the islands best sushi joints right across. The private beach area in front of the property was perfect with all the out door equipment you need. We enjoyed some breathtaking sunsets and early morning walks along the beach. Simply put I could not have asked for a better place to spend my bday family getaway. I will look forward to returning to this location again sometime in the near future. Thank you Cindy!

We loved our stay here! Communication with Cindy leading up to the trip was top notch and she had a lot of great recommendations of places to eat, things to do, etc. The location was perfect for our family with a 1 year old. We could go down to the pool or beach for an hour or two and then back to the condo. It was a 20 min drive to most of the places we wanted to go. The condo was very well stocked with everything you could need! The only thing is I wish there were more of was spices, oils, etc but probably because of Covid everything has to be thrown out. Overall amazing hosts, location and condo! Would definitely rebook!!

This was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed at in Maui. The only reason I would hesitate to return would be the final price after all fees are added. This makes it very hard to fit into my budget. Otherwise, it’s pretty awesome

September 2021
We really had a fun stay. The complex is a little older but the penthouse has great ocean views , new beds and is very well appointed, Cindy the owner is awesome. Great beach with lots of sea turtles.The restaurant/bar downstairs is a plus.Aslo Miso Phat sushi is incredible and it's right across the street

A+ host and rental! Fantastic experience all around with renting this unit. Communication with Cindy and Bill was great and the condo is just as described. The condo has everything a family could need for an amazing Maui trip and the Kahana location was great! Thanks for helping us to make some wonderful family memories!

Liked the View but only one bed room and living room. Always warm upstairs or cold down. Printer didn't work neither did spa tub. Mostly cloudy but not so 2 miles down the road. Master suite really did not have the view the ad gives the impression of and air con is right there! Also beach is eroding not much there at high tide.

Great property for families. We enjoyed going from beach to pool to beach again! The unit was equipped with everything we might possibly need and more! Snorkel gear, boogie boards, cooler, wagon, beach chairs, etc. Close to many great beaches and snorkel spots in Napili and an easy drive to Lahaina for shopping and eating. Highly recommend!

This property was exactly what we were looking for. With its spacious layout and separate rooms and bathrooms, we were all afforded a certain level of privacy while also having room to hangout and cook together. The location is perfect and offers you a chance to feel like you're in your own kind of paradise.
