**Safety and cleanliness procedures implemented may be adjusted in consideration of local practices, government requirements and guidance, and the situation where the condo is located.

BEACHES & CRITTERS: The beach size in Hawaii varies month to month due to heavy surf, strong currents and tides. Due to Maui’s rural atmosphere you may experience the occasional rooster, as well as harmless geckos. Geckos are friendly, eat insects, and are considered good luck in Hawaii. Please don’t kill them.

IMPORTANT: Although the HOA schedules regular professional pest control services, pests such as ants, roaches and rodents simply cannot be completely controlled in the tropics. Hawaii is located in a tropical climate, and insects, rodents and lizards flourish in this environment. If our guest spot more than the normal expected pests, we always make our best efforts to contact and work with the HOA to minimize your interactions with these pests. Any contact with such pests within or outside the unit does not constitute a breach of this Agreement or give Guest any right to any refund or rental adjustment.

We loved the place , except an issue with AC ,as it was scorching.. Overall we loved the place and location will definitely visit same resort.

This is a beautifully maintained condo right on the water. We spent our two weeks listening to the ocean waves during the day and then lulling us to sleep. The condo has all the cooking & sleeping equipment you need along with a closet full of beach supplies. Within the resort is a restaurant called "The Beach House". Very handy & good food. We loved it there I know you will too!

Spacious, bright condo with an amazing balcony overlooking the ocean for awesome sunsets. We also spotted whales breaching daily! The spacious living areas, well-equipped kitchen, and washer/dryer made for a fantastic week's stay. We snorkeled with sea turtles at the beach out front, and it was easy driving to several other great beaches. I would highly recommend this property!

Our family really enjoyed this condo. It’s clean, the beds are comfortable and the views are beautiful. Despite the photos, the condo is located on the 2nd floor. Expect noise from the beach and the pool. Be sure to check the addl. fees before you commit. They are NOT posted in the listing and add a lot to your final bill. The condo is managed by a property mngmt. company. They charged us a service fee, an admin. fee, a cleaning fee, a credit card fee and a front desk fee. But this might be the norm for Maui. Check first!

I had stayed at Sands of Kahana back in the 80's and 90's and knew I loved the location and views. I looked for an oceanfront as close to the ocean but couldn't find one. Looking out over Lanai and Molokai, and whales were almost always spotted. The beautiful sunsets are right out your window and door. We found the condo very spacious with the kitchen having everything we needed. Wish I was there right now!!!

The property is every bit as gorgeous as the photos and well maintained. It's on the first floor (ground level is covered parking), so access to the beach and pool and easy. The property feels like a hotel, but as the unit is privately owned, services aren't provided by the property (eg. we needed an emergency extra roll of toilet tissue and were told by the front desk to call the property manager). The check-in fee was a non-refundable $75 (I still have no idea why the steep fee since they didn't really provide any service), but other than that minor issue, the place was amazing. The kitchen was well equipped. Though the emails in advance said there would be no spices, the unit had every spice and seasoning one could need as well as aluminum foil. The kids were delighted by the the bunk beds, and Grandpa (84) said it was perfect. :)

This condo was great for our family of 5! We loved the balcony overlooking the ocean, the spacious living areas, and the well-stocked kitchen. The space was very clean and the decor was both beautiful and functional. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of space we had. We also appreciated having a washer and dryer. I would highly recommend this property.

The ocean view immediately in front of our balcony is perfect! This unit was perfect for our family of 5. It was bigger then the pictures look and comfortable and clean. We saw sea turtles one day while sitting on our balcony watching the sun set. Highly recommend!

The place is very large and the views are amazing! Beds are very comfortable and the large couches are great for kicking back. Our only complaint was the TV was listed in the ad for the guest bedroom and our friends really weren’t happy with no TV and their bathroom wasn’t very clean. Also a few spices would’ve been nice to have in the kitchen, but other than that, our stay was amazing! I would stay again in this unit for sure. The grounds on this property were top notch and the restaurant/bar was really good. Sands of Kahana is is a great place to stay in Maui, close to everything but quiet and relaxing. Thanks for sharing your home with us! Craig and Jayme

The views are awesome and the beach is steps away. The kiddie pool is the best I have ever seen. It is nice to have access to a restaurant and activities on site.

Spacious space with Ocean views. Master bedroom window opens to the sounds or the Maui waves. Loved the check-in through the check out process. Hosts are easy to communicate with. Highly recommended.

There were a few building maintenance issues but were manageable. The managing company sent maintenance people right away for repair.



July 2022
Great location. We read a past review about snorkeling with turtles and lo and behold on multiple occasions we were swimming with one. The condo was better than advertised. Beautiful view from the lanai. We grilled and walked to a coffee shop, markets and multiple restaurants.

We stayed at this condo for two weeks with our 5 young children. I had seen all the photos in advance and read prior reviews. Here were our impressions: 1) The condo is VERY spacious. We kind of got lost just trying to navigate the hallways to the bathrooms and rooms, but it was a good thing! 2) The view is absolutely stunning, even being on a lower floor. The floor to ceiling and wall to wall windows, plus roll-away bedroom wall made it even better. We were constantly in awe at the views of the ocean, beach, palm trees and nearby islands of Lanai and Molokai. 3) The kitchen appliances are new and upgraded. We had plenty of room for all our food for two weeks in the fridge. The convection oven was a plus, and the dishwasher fit all the dishes. The washer/dryer also worked well. 4) The property was really good and maintained, with easy access to the beach and pools by just walking down a flight of stairs. There were lots of beach chairs owned by the resort, but we usually just used the beach chairs provided by the condo and were able to sit closer to the water. 5) Bathrooms were in good shape and the double sinks were a great feature. The multiple showerheads in the bathroom by the master was very nice. 6) The couch as SO big, and comfortable. My daughter slept there when she wanted extra space (since most slept in one bedroom). 7) The Lanai was large and very relaxing to be on. 8) Snorkeling was actually really good at the beach in front of the condo. We snorkeled with sea turtles, just ~30 feet out. Lots of cool-looking fish too. Visibility is best in the early morning. 9) There are 12 grills all around the resort. I used them almost every night and never had to wait for one. As far as downsides, there weren’t many. We had an issue with the kitchen sink drain, but that was the resort’s issue to resolve, and they handled it as soon as they were made aware. The filtered water ran a bit slow and the lanai sliding door could slide more smoothly. I know sometimes there are issues with bugs at Hawaii condos/homes, but we had zero issues with bugs. We swept and took out the trash every day so we weren’t inviting them in. Overall, we were very pleased with this property and would stay again in a heartbeat!

The location and view were good. The inside of the house was dirty. Had cockroaches all over the unit, bed bugs in one of the rooms and couldn't leave nothing on the counters because they will get ants all over. No one was reachable @3am. The worse christmas vacation ever. Tried to contact property manager from 3am until 8:30am on Christmas eve day. When Jeff finally called back, he admitted they had an issue with the unit before. I had to make my own reservations at the only hotel 45minutes from we originally wanted to stay. Been a holiday, everything was sold out. Nonetheless, last minute reservation and been the only hotel available in Maui, I had to pay more than my planned in advance price in a very cheap looking hotel. I had send my complaint and comments to customer support for Vrbo and emailed the property manager and no one had contacted me as of yet. ??

The location was amazing! It was right on the beach with gorgeous views of the ocean. It wasn't as clean as I would have liked and we did have an issue with the faucets in the master bath not working; however, it was fixed within the first few days of our stay. Overall it was a wonderful stay and I would gladly stay there again.

It was a nice front view of the beach, no pantry space for food, one bathroom stunnk horrible, drinking spiket was broken, all there snorkel gear was non functional, but other then that it was a pretty great place to stay!

Million dollar view. So close to the beach we were so very pleased with the condo. The only Bad thing we can say is that the toilets were kind of jimmy rigged to flush and we’re constantly needing us to fix them. One of the sinks in the master bathroom didn’t work and the bathtub in the master bathroom was so clogged with other peoples hair that it wouldn’t drain and we didn’t want to stick our hands down there to unclog it. Lastly the water filtration system in the kitchen sink needed maintenance so we used only bottled water. Otherwise we really enjoyed the unit

We were visiting Maui for the first time and were very pleased with the quality of the property we selected. It was hard to leave the unit because the views inside were so satisfying. The location is very convenient to explore all of the prime spots on West Maui and we would not hesitate to book this unit again. We discovered that it was fairly easy to get a taxi service (they came in a van) to shuttle us to and from wherever we needed to go since we didn’t have a car. Uber and lift never had a driver available (early July 2021) Check in was easy. (Though we didn’t notice the $75 check in fee when we booked- but we may have missed that) And there were a couple of items that needed some maintenance attention in the unit, but I believe it was scheduled to be done on our checkout day. The property is very well represented in the listing and we really enjoyed our stay. Book with confidence.

We had the time of our lives! The view from our place was heavenly. The pictures do not do justice to the unit. Views from both living room and master bedroom were spectacular and we were right on the beach. Every morning we could also enjoy the sights of sea turtles swimming just off the beach as we sat on the Lanai. The location was perfect for dinners in Lahaina and close enough to drive the road to Hana and up to Haleakala as well. Beaches of west Maui were close and the pool and areas to relax at the resort were excellent as well. My family consisted of 7 adults and 1 teenager and we did not feel cramped at all! 5 Stars plus! We’d stay here again for sure! Mahalo Michael B.

I cannot stress enough how amazing the views are from this unit! And the overall location of This resort was perfect for us! We also loved the grounds and the Beachhouse is a great breakfast spot! But back to the condo - it had ample room for all of us (3 adults, 1 teen, 2 kids), very comfortable, lots of awesome beach stuff (chairs, boogie boards, noodles, floaties, and more), the washer/dryer were VERY handy, and the LOCATION!!! This is the best building in the resort and this unit has to be one of the best! We love it and will be back!
