****************************** BOOKING POLICY ********************************
Please note that I am an individual property owner. My costs are very high and as a result, I must ensure that the bookings are efficient. What does that mean? e.g. if I have an opening of 8 days and you want 4 days and you try to book right in the middle of those 8 days then the 2 days at the beginning and the 2 days at the end go to waste. That would result in a 50% occupancy loss. I DO NOT ACCEPT SUCH BOOKINGS THAT RESULT IN WASTED DAYS. So chose dates that leave bookable periods of minimum 4-5 days on either end if you are going to book in the middle, or else I'll have to reject your request. If you do make a booking that results in wasted days, then you, not I, will be responsible for canceling it when I request you to do so. **** If you are unsure then first reach out to me to ask me about your dates before booking. I can be reached directly on MauiOceanFrontLiving dot com on the web.

************************************************************************************

CANCELLATION POLICY: The Parties agree that the following cancellation policy will be the effective cancellation and shall override any other cancellation policy published on any website. If Tenant cancels 61 days or more before check-in date, Owner shall refund 100% of the booking amount. No refunds will be offered for cancellations made less than 61 days before the check-in date. For all such refunds, Owner shall deduct a 10% processing fee that shall be 10% of the total booking fee, plus any fees deducted by the Reservation System, and any credit card fees associated with the transactions.

If Tenant changes the date of the booking, first the cancellation fees will be applied to the existing reservation and then a credit will be provided for the new booking.

NOTE: Tenant agrees that due to Extenuating Circumstances (including but not limited to: unpredictable sickness, pandemics, inclement weather, earthquakes, travel-related issues, health issues, or other circumstances beyond Parties’ control) Tenant shall obtain any refund that may be due from Tenant’s purchased travel insurance and that Owner nor the Reservation System shall NOT be liable for said refund. The company providing travel insurance is a separate entity from Owner and all cancellation-related claims must be handled directly through them.

Parties agree that if Tenant fails to purchase travel insurance, Tenant will assume ALL RISKS related to, or in connection with, their travel and booking; and shall not, under any circumstances, request refunds or credits directly or indirectly from the Owner.

Sands of Kahana Rental Reviews

Staying in this condo is truly "home away from home". It's nicely decorated, comfortable furniture/bed and fully equipped kitchen. We only used the air conditioning a few times (primarily because of humidity) but it worked very well especially for Hawaian air conditioning. The best part of the condo was the fabulous views of the ocean. We spent most of our time relaxing on the lanai watching the numerous whales, surfers, and sunrise/sunsets. Raj is a great host.

This unit was beautiful and just as described. Location was great, with lots to do on property, and near Whalers Village for shopping and restaurants. The balcony was amazing for lounging and enjoying the view.

This is a great property with amazing views!! The condo is very clean and well-equipped. Everything is updated and appliances are new. The balcony which extends from the living area and the master bedroom was where we spent most of our time while at the condo. The owner was extremely helpful with anything we needed assistance with. We highly recommend this condo if you are going to be on Maui.

We had a phenomenal stay at this beautiful property. Everything was exactly as listed and then some. Anything we wanted or needed during our trip was provided in the condo or on the property. Raj was very attentive to any questions we had leading into our trip. After the terrible fires that took so much from the locals, we were torn about keeping our reservation but are so glad that we did. This property is located several miles north of Lahaina and was as beautiful as ever. Every morning was spent drinking coffee on the Lanai while the sun rose and lit up the neighboring islands. We saw several turtles every day while enjoying the warm calm beach located directly in front of the property. The on site pools were great for our young daughter and the adults in our group. There were several delicious restaurants nearby that we were able to enjoy. We would absolutely stay in this condo at this property again. Raj and family really think about your comfort while in their home. They provided everything we wanted and needed to enjoy Maui at its finest.

First, I was amazed at how clean this condo was. I've stayed at many VRBO places before and this place was the cleanest VRBO that I ever stayed in (which is a testament to the cleaning crew because there is literally sand all over this property). The unit was immaculately cleaned when we arrived. Second, the views from the sixth floor balcony were amazing. We honestly enjoyed sitting on the balcony more than the beach, particularly in the afternoon and evening, so we could watch the sea turtles and sunset. The panoramic view is awe-inspiring. Third, this condo has all the amenities that you need. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the appliances and gadgets that you'll need for your stay. The beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. All of the furniture is newer and very nice. Regarding the Sands of Kahana resort and Kahana Beach, the resort property itself is somewhat dated, although this is not reflected in the condo itself. However, the Sands of Kahana is within walking distance of a great sushi restaurant (Miso Phat) and other amenities you may need (e.g., snorkel rental, general store, etc.). The beach was fantastic and not that crowded. Plus, there's an abundance of sea turtles. We could always see at least three sea turtles from the balcony swimming in the water. And if you like snorkeling, be prepared to snorkel with some sea turtles (they're awesome to behold and are very chill). My family had a blast!

We arrived and the views were event more stunning than the pictures and this 2 bedroom condo was spacious and directly on the ocean front with great sunset views! The appliances were new and worked perfect for cooking our own breakfast and so close to lots of thinks to eat from pizza to sushi! They had beach chairs and snorkel gear to use and the beach was perfect! The pool was refreshing and it was connected to “The Beach House” where you would order food / drink! We played pickle ball and walked along the beach area in the morning and enjoyed sunset views each evening. A relaxing vacay and would recommend staying at this unit again!

Everything was first class all the way around! Gorgeous condo, gorgeous grounds and gorgeous beach!! The view…unbelievably beautiful!! And the sunset every night was spectacular!! Raj and family- thank you for sharing your home!!

This condo is exquisite. The owner went above and beyond to answer any questions and make sure we were happy with our accommodations. We sat on the balcony every day and watched whales jump and turtles swimming in the ocean. The kitchen is fully stocked and even though we didn’t cook, we could have easily cooked meals there. We would love to use it again some day.

We could not of asked for a better view, every room including the bathrooms have ocean views. We were able to see whales in the distance from our room and we saw many sea turtles while swimming at the beach. The condo was spacious for a unit on Maui with plenty of room for 3 kids and 2 adults. The kitchen was nice and well stocked with appliances (even a coffee grinder) and cookware. Overall the condo unit was excellent, but the best part by far was the expansive and unobstructed views of the ocean and neighboring islands. We definitely plan to come back!

What an amazing vacation! The listing was just as advertised, except it’s even better than any pictures online. The balcony view is breathtaking. The location was convenient to dinners/activities. The pool and beach provided days of fun. We watched whales and turtles from the windows/balcony. Best VRBO property we have ever stayed at.

Great beach, room was perfect for our family. Viewed lots of whales and a few turtles.

The condo was large and clean. The kitchen had all the amenities. The views were fantastic with plenty of rainbows, whales turtles and surfers. The pool gets crowded and people tend to save their seats and not show up for hours. That is the only draw back.

The best place we have rented to date: views in every room (including both washrooms), well equipped kitchen, good quality sheets and towels, beds were comfortable and the furniture looked new. The beach is clean, quiet, 2 pools are clean and not too busy and the proximity to Lahaina and Kapalua make it easy to go out to grab a meal and catch the beautiful scenery. Even my grumpy teenagers had a great time. The only criticism I can think of is that the tennis courts needs some resurfacing, but 2 pickleball courts were brand new (had we known, we would have brought our paddles). We were all very sad to leave on our last day. Maui is a destination worth the travel and Kahana is definitely the place to go.

The house was very well stocked with appliances and dishes. I like that because we like cooking. Can't beat the beautiful view! Owner was very easy to work with.

What an amazing location with view looking directly west to ocean and beautiful sunsets. Saw rainbows over the water almost every morning, and sea turtles swimming by throughout the day. Beach was beautiful with bar right there for quick snacks or drinks. Chairs, towels, noodles, and snorkels provided by owner. Quieter spot for those looking for less commotion with bigger resort locations. Just overall amazing stay and highly recommend it! Thank you Raj for sharing your piece of paradise with us - mahalo👍

This property is amazing, the view just spectacular, it felt like I was in the ocean that is how close we were and ocean sounds were very calming. The condo has everything you need and more. It is very spacious. The property is clean and the location is just a few miles from Kaanapali and we liked it better because it is way less crowded. We saw sea turtles daily from the condo balcony and while on the beach. You can also snorkel at the property, we saw an eel and multiple colorful fish. The Beach House restaurant is good and very convenient to eat there, you just walk downstairs. Parking for your stay is easy. Do not hesitate to book this property, you will not regret staying here. Thank you to the owner Raj for sharing this amazing property with us. Hope to stay there again soon.

Spacious condo unit, very well appointed, and views that cannot be beat. Shops for everything you need right there. So convenient in every way, and not as much traffic up in this area compared to Kaanapali Beaches Snorkeling and swimming at beach out front, good pool and spa. Highly recommend for families!

We had a lovely visit in Maui and staying at this property. The condo was absolutely amazing. The views were stunning! The property owner was responsive and quick to answer any questions. We had a little mishap the shower door went off track and broke while my son was getting out. The owner was quick to respond and to get the situation handled immediately. We loved the location of the property! Susie

The suite. Views to die for. Very clean with nicely working appliance, plenty of room for even our large party (with some kids on couches), beach towels, chairs and gear to use at the beach. All in all, really great: we made coffee and pizza, used the microwave routinely, stocked the frig, did laundry halfway through our trip. Everything worked without issue. Did I say great views? The owner Raj was courteous and very easy to do business with. I would stay in his exact unit again in a heartbeat, no hesitation. Some other reviews mention the AC being at 80 degrees, but a note specifies to close doors and put it at 80 when you're out and about. Great views. When you're back, get comfortable, within reason obviously. For the most part, we didn't need it at all overnight (in early/mid-June), and daytime was trickier - never parked the thermostat below 74 - it gets cool away from the windows. And again: great view!!! The overall Sands of Kahana: great with some hiccups. The beach is great but sand isn't quite as spectacular as some other "white sand beaches" nearby. (By nearby, literally just a 5 minute drive, e.g. to Fleming Beach, which is just spectacular.) Good snorkeling right out front for various fish as well as the occasion al sea turtle. The Beach Grill right on site is great: excellent breakfast and dinner options, and a fine happy hour menu as well. Good drinks for both kids and adults. The swimming pool is fantastic - so warm and just a welcome clean swim after the salty ocean. Some negatives were: only 1 elevator which gave us a fright in our final day by being broken, when one of us needed it due to being in a wheelchair. Fortunately the repair crew got it working in the nick of time. Also, the site has no emergency crutches or wheelchairs for guests to utilize temporarily. I would highly recommend adding these, just in case. Maui: you kiddin'? It's awesome! Great beaches and excursions, excellent eating and shopping, friendly people. Parking can be tricky but that's about the only gripe. Speed limit is usually only around 45 -definitely an "on vacation" vibe... I got home and have been driving so slowly: gotta get my aggression back up. Haha. PS, on the final day, give yourself at least 2 hours to get through the airport if you want to gamble, 3 hours to feel comfortable. It's not a huge airport, but the TSA line is pretty slow and they also have an agricultural scan of everything. Aloha and mahalo. Wow! We loved our trip!

We are so happy to have found this property and hope to make it our yearly vacation. The view from this condo cannot be described with words. I mean even the views from the bathrooms are spectacular! The location is great, the condo is spacious, and the owner is extremely kind, helpful, and accommodating. It’s everything you could ever want. You will cry when it’s time to leave!

My family and I just spent 9 days at this beautiful condo. The views from the lanai are stunning. We spent many hours sitting on the lanai just enjoying the views and sounds of the ocean. It was a sad day when we had to leave. We enjoyed the pools and the beach. Raj has thought of everything when it comes to stocking the condo with items needed from kitchenware to beach items. All we had to do was buy groceries! We enjoyed our stay so much, we have already started thinking about our next trip and plan to book with Raj again. Ami C.

Everything about this condo was fantastic! From the pictures and description we were very much looking forward to our stay and your condo didn't disappoint. In fact it was even better than expected! Very well stocked kitchen and appreciated the beach chairs and towels. Most of all enjoyed the lanai overlooking the ocean to soak in the view, watch sea turtles and whales and just relax. I'm already missing falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean. Thanks for sharing your home in paradise! We will miss it and hope to be back someday.

We enjoyed our stay at this very comfortable condo - we enjoyed early morning moon settings, watching for whales in the distance, seeing turtles below, watching monarch butterflies cavorting by, meals on the balcony prepared the fully-equipped kitchen and lovely sunsets.

Our stay was beyond amazing! The property is just as beautiful as the pictures, if not more so. The ocean views are stunning. We saw whales from the two lanais multiple times each day. Definitely shed a few tears in my coffee that final morning. Check-in and check-out processes were quick and easy, with clear instructions provided by the owner in a welcome packet a few weeks prior to arriving. He also checked in a couple of times just ahead of arrival. The unit was very clean and in excellent condition. I’ve seen a couple of reviews about AC, but we had no issue. It does get warm at on one end of the unit at sunset, with most windows facing west, but simply pulling the shades does the trick. The kitchen has everything you need, down to a pineapple cutter for a delicious Maui Gold pineapple from a nearby market. Plenty of clean towels in the bathrooms. Closet had several items to play with on the beach for our two teenage boys. The resort’s beach is wonderful, and the neighborhood is lovely. The boys took several walks for souvenir shopping, with lots of stores nearby. Parking was plentiful near the building and unit, with multiple luggage carts available for use. We picked this unit because we wanted to the two teens to have their own room and space. This was less expensive than paying for two hotel rooms or a big suite, plus we could cook some meals ourselves and save a few bucks that way. Loved that the views, cleanliness, and overall experience was just as fabulous as it would have been at one of the big fancy hotels in nearby Kaanapali or Kapalua. Thank you, Raj and family, for sharing your gorgeous home!

The view from the balcony was amazing. We were entertained by the whales and the turtles all day long. We were glad to have a restaurant on the property since most of the restaurants were booked solid after 5pm. We hope to come back soon. We did need to let the owner know that the fan on the balcony was broken when we got there. It was hanging down. Looked like it might have been damaged in a storm.

Wonderful stay at Sands of Kahana. The unit was immaculate, kitchen fully stocked with all the accessories needed to cook. Outstanding views of Lana’i and Molakai from the lanai where we enjoyed leisurely coffee and endless whale watching. There were boogie boards, beach towels, beach chairs, etc available for our use. The owner, Raj, was very easy and pleasant to deal with. We had an amazing vacation in paradise!

Great condo that has exceptional views!! We saw whales and turtles from the balcony almost daily. Check-in and out was easy. Although we stayed over Christmas break, the beach wasn't all that busy. Would definitely stay here again.

Great ocean front condo. Seriously, you can’t get any closer to the ocean than this. This corner unit condo offers everything a vacationer could need during their stay. Beautiful decorated, generously stocked with kitchen wares, beach towels, beach supplies (chairs, boogie boards, noodles, etc.), and the views are amazing. I have stayed in many condos over the years on Maui and the location, layout, and amenities of this condo and complex make this one of my all time favorites. The owner was easy to work with and gives a great welcome packet for all your vacation needs prior to your stay.

If you’re looking at this condo and can’t decide on making reservations, just do it! If you wait too long someone else will! The pictures of this condo simply don't do it justice. The view is simply superb, it was very clean and the condo had everything we needed including beach chairs, beach towels and boogie boards. I already miss enjoying our morning cup of coffee on the balcony and listening to the sound of the waves. The condo is located in a very quiet area so it was perfect for my family. I visited another condo in the same building and the renovations that Raj did really impressed me compared to the other condo. Raj was so great to work with! He sent us a very helpful welcome packet that explained everything and gave us great info on the surrounding area. He was very responsive and I couldn’t ask for a better experience!

We enjoyed Raj’s condo and it’s amazing ocean view. The condo has everything we needed for our stay and the location was fabulous. It was extremely clean and well appointed. Raj was super helpful and easy to get a hold of when we had cooling issues with the 2nd bedroom.

Good location, comfortable condo that has all the amenities needed for the trip and any cooking you want to do. Owner was very nice and answered any questions or needs before and during trip. Building is a little older but once you enter the condo you would never know. Amazingly close to swimmable beach and perfect views. Pool is pretty small compared to resorts but water is perfect. Only issue we had was the room with 2 beds was very stuffy, the A/C did not get flow there. On humid nights even with windows open it was not as comfortable. Also the TV did not work in that room. We called owner and he offered to look at but we did not want to mess with it since we weren’t really watching anyways. He was very helpful! I would recommend staying here if you want a quieter stay away from the resorts and comfort! I would definitely stay here again!


Michelle K.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Maui. We had everything we needed in this rental. The kitchen was the most stocked I've ever experienced in a rental. The beach gear was incredibly valuable as well. Our favorite part, by far, was the balcony, view of the sunset and the nightly crashing waves. Thank you for an amazing space to enjoy!
