The condo and view are amazing! It was not a problem not having air conditioning, just left the doors open and it was cool enough. The heated pools and hot tub were great! Easy access to the beach. Will definitely come back again!

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Sullivan Properties makes renting a unit at Sands of Kahana very easy...seemless in fact. No concerns whatsoever with the process. But, despite the fabulous location of this unit on the ocean front, our takeaway is that the unit is getting stale and dated (we've stayed in this unit before) much as are the timeshare units throughout Sands (including the ones we've stayed in before...and will continue to stay in because we love the property overall). The kitchen pantry smells of garlic, things are getting old looking and worn. And since the rental prices don't seem to be going down (thus we assume revenues are still good) isn't it possible to provide basic higher quality and more necessities in the unit at check-in (coffee, spices, olive oil, higher quality soaps, shampoos, conditioners, etc., etc.) like we are used to seeing in AirBNB's and VRBO's throughout the world? Hate to be a little negative because we love Sands of Kahana and we love the view from this particular unit. One other thing...and this has nothing to do with Sullivan Properties, the labor shortage in HI really shows in the staff at Sands of Kahana. The check-in and check-out staff, although polite, seemed very young, inexperienced, and minimally trained. Not the outgoing, friendly, professional, helpful staff we were used to at Sands of Kahana over the years. But we saw similar problems at restaurants throughout the island, etc. Thanks, we'll be back.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Very nice space. Vacuum was not useable. No bucket for the mop and no way to squeeze it out. Bad dust pan and no little hand broom. Refrigerator needed 2 filters. Clean except for around the washer and hot water tank. One closet door was pulled off the slider. Otherwise nice condo.

Initially, completely reluctant to even rent, but we were running out of good options. I am so glad we did, it was truly perfect!!! Probably the closest we have been to the beach ever. Our lanai and living room faced the ocean so we slept with the doors and windows open to hear the waves. Tutles right in the waters and one came onto the beach at night. Great little restaurant and bar in front of the pool overlooking the ocean. . .fully stocked kitchen. My only complaint was the spare beds were poor. The master was excellent. Two people slept on the couch rather than the spare beds. Would stay here again anytime!!!

In the back bedroom the mattresses and pillows were awful. Did not get one nights sleep of decent rest.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Wonderful AirBNB. The view was absolutely amazing. No buildings between you and the ocean. We listened to the waves all night long.Good amount of space, perfect for a family of 4-5 people. The deck provided a lovely outdoor seating option and a great place to see turtles swimming by.We are planning on visiting Maui again and if this place is available, we will book here again.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The ocean views alone sell this unit as they are simply breathtaking from the lanai, as well as from inside the unit thanks to the wall-to-wall windows in the main bedroom through to the connected living room. Expect to find yourself wanting to spend lots of time sitting on the lanai in the morning and late afternoon viewing the sunset and islands of Lanai and Molokai. Large (1500sf) well-appointed 2 bed / 2 bath unit was ample room for our family of 4. Rooms and bathrooms on opposite ends of the unit gave the kids and parents their own sense of privacy. Decor is a bit dated, but in very good/clean condition and gives a classic Hawaii beach vibe. Onsite restaurant/bar by the pool with ocean views was very convenient and had great casual food & drinks. Great coffee shop (Hawaiian Village Coffee) a short walk away, and a fun/good sushi restaurant/bar (Miso Phat! lol) right across the street. Note that the unit (like most in Maui) has no air conditioning, which was no problem for our trip in October (the perfect month to be here imo), but may be for some in the more hot/humid summer months. Highly recommended for families on a modest budget; we stayed 5-nights for the price of 1 night at The Ritz a few miles away. Host (Sullivan Properties) provided great communication emails before, during, and following stay. While the unit does not promise beach equipment, they will leave equipment purchased/left by previous guests. We were lucky enough to find and use a beach umbrella, 2 beach chairs, a beach cooler, 2 boogie boards, and 2 sets of snorkel gear during our visit, which saved us literally hundreds in purchases/rentals while there. Kaanapali area in general was fantastic if you prefer a slightly more laid-back and less commercialized experience than the bigger resort towns (Kapalua & Wailea). So many great lodging options in Maui, but based on our experience I see us booking this unit again on our next Maui family trip as it delivered amazing "bang for the buck".

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We loved this unit...for its location — the ocean front view is spectacular — and for the overall amenities available at Sands of Kahana. But the room? So-so at best as appliances, fixtures, furnishings, etc., are dated and needing upkeep. They worked but are on their last legs. The property manager was great, very attentive, and helpful during our stay.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Very nice view. Unit need’s updating: garbage disposal is terrible and worn out- dishwasher doesn’t clean, found lipstick on glasses and dirty silverware. Washing machine makes terrible noises and shows rust. Cabinets in kitchen needs to be tightened up and deep cleaned.Mattress in spare bedroom needs replacing .We have been staying at the Sands since the 1990’s and love the place. This unit was the worse one we have stayed in.Thank you for your attention...

When I first looked at this place online, I passed over it. A few weeks later it popped up again. So not sure I wanted to book it because of the price and pictures. But I went ahead and did. When I walked through the door to the condo I was blown away. Two very large windows look right out to the ocean. Whales jumping right out of the water that you can see from both the master bedroom and the living room right back to the kitchen the kids room was in the back with their own bathroom. The kitchen had everything you need to hit the Costco on the way in and save eating out money. You don't want to miss the view. The owners have lots of beach stuff here but bring stuff to add to it the pill of fun stuff. What I would have liked to see, Updated tv in the living room for nighttime and maybe some board games. I think the owner should put in a sunshade for the sunset because the house can get blinding at that time and you need to close the blinded for an hour or so. I do think 3,200 is a little high for 4 days. I do get it's the view but I would have booked weeks ago if the price was a few hundred less. I will come back but when the price is lower. Thanks again

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
