A few notes on frequently asked questions:
-How close are you to the beach? You can see the beach from our living room window & front lanai. We haven't calculated the number of steps down to the ground floor and to the water, but it's not far. There are also many, many other beaches a short walk or drive from our home, so you can find your favorite!

-Discounts: In short, no. Given the quality and size of our unit, the many on-site amenities that are included in your stay, and our competitive pricing relative to other three-bedroom units and hotels in the area, we do not offer additional discounts other than what may be occasionally advertised here.

-Number of guests: The advertised rate is inclusive of six guests. We may allow up to eight guests with an additional surcharge.

-What building are you in/unit number/floor? We will not share this info until your reservation is paid-in-full. This is for security and guest privacy concerns as our calendar and pictures of our home are publicly available.

-Length of stay: Stays of less than seven nights will only be considered where there is an odd 'gap' between other bookings and additional nightly discounts may be available for those stays.

-Are my dates available? Check the calendar! :) Depending on other bookings and time of year, we may ask if you have any flexibility in your dates. We recommend booking your accommodations before your flights if you have flexibility.

-Cancellations: Your payments are non-refundable. Plan accordingly & buy travel insurance to protect your costs.

-Cancel-for-any-reason Travel Insurance Recommended: Since group vacations to Maui can be very expensive, we highly recommend looking into trip insurance to protect you against any unexpected life events that may prevent you from honoring your stay. There are independent sites that allows you to compare coverage options or your credit card may offer something if you use it to pay for your stay. We can't afford to insure the costs of your stay which is why we have a non-refundable cancellation policy.

-No jerk policy: We work very hard to ensure our guests have a great experience in our home. Our on-island team will go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable. We practice aloha and expect the same from our guests. If you're not respectful in the reservation process, we won't trust you with our home.

Mahalo (thank you) for considering making our home your Hawaiian haven while on Maui!

Highly recommend this property! It’s even better than the pictures. We stayed with 8 people and had more than enough room. Clean, updated and fully stocked with everything you need in the room and for the beach. Brooke was super responsive and made sure we had everything we needed. The property is beautifully maintained and conveniently located near Lahaina and other popular spots.

I took my family ( two grown sons and their families) to Maui and had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful condo. The place was extremely clean and well appointed. Our kitchen was state of the art and well stocked. Our BR and bathrooms were generous in size. We felt so welcome from the moment we arrived. Our host kept in contact with us throughout the whole process. She really was organized and left us written instructions which made everything easy. We all loved Maui and our accommodations were superb. We will definitely stay here again.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us! The property was very clean and modern. We took advantage of all of the beach gear and the well stocked kitchen! The restaurant at the property was delicious with great service as well. It was nice that there was an additional beach just down the street that we also enjoyed. We had a blast and look forward to visiting again one day. Thanks again.

Great Condo with 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath. Very Clean. Impressive Kitchen and bathrooms. Nice Deck(s) and View. And everything you need to have a lot of fun, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, beach towels and more. The location of the complex was a bit far, really needed/wanted to drive to good restaurants and shopping. I'd rate the Condo itself a "5" Star but the grounds, pools, beach in front of the complex and other grounds amenities a 3 star at best. Owners were very easy to work with and nothing hidden or bad things came up. Would rent again for large group.

Our family stayed here for a week in July and it was the most fantastic vacation we ever had. The apartment is luxurious with every amenity you'd ever need, the view was to die for, and the beach is clean and the water is spotless. It was our first time in Maui and this was the perfect setting for it :) Thank you again!

This property is amazing! All the amenities of home and then some. Brooke and Ken have thought of everything to make your trip enjoyable. From the fully stocked kitchen to the activity closet full of beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, etc., they have got you covered. Thanks for making our trip amazing and a little piece of Paradise!! Mahalo!

Really nicely equipped condo. Including beach chairs, towels, sun shade snorkeling and body boards. Everything in the condo was at least as nice as described. The owners were very responsive in fixing broken coffee machine. The resort is well maintained with nice gardens and tennis court. The only down side was that the beach has suffered erosion exposing sharp rocks around the entance and water line. There is sand further along and better beaches a little drive away.

We stayed here recently. We were a party of 5. My husband and I stayed here with my parents (in their 60's) and our 12-year old son, so the unit easily accommodated a range of ages and personalities. I can't begin to describe all of the things that were wonderful here, but I will try to hit the highlights. The unit is incredibly spacious. We all felt like we had a lot of privacy, and each room has a ton of open space and closet space. The air conditioning was wonderful. It was pretty warm while we were there, and it would have been very uncomfortable without it. Many condo units on Maui do not have A/C. There were also SO many amenities in the unit. The Roku and apple TV were really nice touches. We just signed in and out of our various netflix/hulu/apple accounts and had instant access to content we had at home (I know you are wondering why we were watching TV but there had to be at least a LITTLE down time). The kitchen was incredibly fully stocked and I LOVED the labels and instructions for everything (Where did this spoon come from - oh! from the drawer labeled "spoons" of course!). The washer / dryer worked great! The patios were relaxing and comfortable. And all of the little decorative touches were just beautiful! I felt so well taken care of! The owners were also very attentive. They helped us with an early check in, and when we had a small issue with a sink not working properly on arrival, they very quickly dispatched someone to fix it with no inconvenience to us. The price is also fabulous. While we were there, my mother wanted to go visit a nearby condo complex that someone had recommended. When we got to the other property, it was smaller, farther away, more expensive, and had no a/c. The location was perfect. We had worried that maybe it was too far north, but it was actually very close to Kaanapali with plenty of little places close by to eat, rent snorkel gear, etc. The beach at the complex was lovely, although we spent most of our time on other beaches nearby. I just really can't say enough good things about this find! I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much for the lovely vacation!

Party of seven, 2 families, three adults and 4 children under the age of 10, from Northern and Southern California... what a fun and comfortable time we had at Ken and Brooke's home at Sands of Kahana. The home - so spacious and modern, easy for all of us to achieve privacy during down time, and equally easy for all of us to gather together during meals, conversations, and just simply watching TV. All the bedrooms were spacious with ample room for stashing personal clothing and accessories. The beds were comfortable with simple, modern, and soft bedding...just the way we like it. The bathrooms were perfect for sharing with more than enough towels for everyone. The kitchen is fully stocked with appliances, dishes, flatware, cups, tupperware, and just about anything you need to accommodate the needs for cooking and snacking. We absolutely appreciated the refrigerator with filtered water and ice! We didn't have to purchase bottled water which saved us time and money! Other great amenities that we well utilized were the HE washer and dryer, the boogie boards, the sand toys, the beach towels, and the amazing beach chairs (4 of them) with umbrellas attached! - a huge plus during beach time, shading us from the intense Hawaii sun. We also cannot forget to mention the ceiling fans... the Minka Koa wood fans, beautiful, so efficient in helping the AC unit cool the unit, and so nice to have in every room. Views were amazing... ocean views in the Master and living space...and mountain views in the bedrooms... rainbows were plenty! The property - The Sands of Kahana has it all... A wonderful beach for surfing, paddle boarding, boogie boarding, volleyball play, and just swimming. The pools are so fun and easy to access, two hot tubs and an adult pool and a kiddy pool. The pools were perfect for the times when we wanted to stay away from sand! There is a bar/restaurant overlooking the larger pool, but was closed during renovation. The bar/restaurant is scheduled to open in August, we know it would be a perfect place to hang out. Outdoor BBQ's are available, and always kept clean... Outdoor showers to wash off sand from the beach... bathrooms... tennis courts... putting green... weight room... elevators... luggage carts (so helpful!)... I hope I didn't forget anything... The location - It's in the middle of everything. Close to shopping, fast food and eat in restaurants, and beaches. Love the sidewalks for early morning and late evening st

We had a great time. The condo is very nice and has a nice view of the ocean.

My family (two couples, one single adult) stayed in this condo at the end of January 2015 for one week. What a great stay! The condo is modern and updated. Beds are very comfortable and there were tons of towels. There is an amazing view from front lanai. Free underground parking was awesome. All kitchen appliances were new. Fridge has water and ice feature which was great. The beach was the best, but the pool and hottub were wonderful too. The restaurant was excellent on the two times we ate there. Friendly service and reasonable prices. Desk staff to the condo also very helpful. Owner responded almost immediately to question about the dishwasher in the suite. The condo is so large that it allowed us enough privacy. There is Air Conditioning, but we didn't use it. Breezes through windows were great. Tons of closet space in the condo. 2 bathrooms in the suite was great for our larger group. There are TVs in each room (didn't use them though) and a BBQ on main floor. In suite laundry was a dream. Soap was provided. There is a small (overpriced) grocery store across the street from the condo. Lahaina is quite close, but definately need a car to get there. Cons:sliding doors to bathrooms limited privacy and are a bit awkward to close, bedroom nearest entrance is a bit noisy as it is right off hallway and window doesn't seal out noise (slatted window with screen). pots and pans made food stick quite badly, and probably the closets could use more hangers. All fairly minor issues. I would definately stay here again. Owner was very responsive and helpful via emails.

This was a trip that took a year in the planning. We had decided to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary with our recently college graduated sons and their girlfriends. The three bedroom layout was perfect. The accommodations ideal. This unit was spacious, meticulously decorated, convenient to all activities in West Maui, and most comfortable. It became our home for ten days. We cannot say enough about the owners of the unit, the level of their communication and quality of their maintenance person. We had a minor plumbing issue with the kitchen sink that could not have been foreseen, our first day of vacation which was resolved almost immediately on a holiday weekend, without hesitation. We will definitely recommend the unit to our friends and we would love to come back.

This was our first trip to Maui and we are very thankful that we booked this condo! it has everything a family would need, top of the line appliances, fans, tv's, etc. you can really tell the the owners put a lot of love into their place to keep it up to date and clean. In fact, we were the first people to use the new master shower! I also want to say that the owners were great and communicated to us along the way (we had a later check in than expected, and the elevator went out for a few hours just before our check in) they were even gracious enough to give us a small credit for the inconvenience. we are coming back most definetly. I can't thank you enough Ken and Brooke! we will be back and we will tell the others that this is the place to stay!!

Took the whole family (including grandparents and 8 yr old twins) to this spacious condo with lanai overlooking ocean and pools. Top-notch appliances (you'll appreciate the quiet washer/dryer for supply of fresh towels for the little ones in the swimming pools). Walk across street to Miso Phat sushi and Dollie's pub. Condo has some snorkel gear and water toys but can rent extras onsite or across street at Boss Frog. Condo has air conditioned but with the constant gentle breeze thru the massive sliding doors on the lanai it was not needed even when temps hit 90F. Kitchen furnished with top-of-the line appliances and cookware. Gas BBQs are on the grounds - we picked up steaks at nearby grocery store for a family feast. Three bedrooms with comfy beds and top-grade linens made for restful sleep. Two bathrooms with 4 sinks, 2 showers & a soaking tub easily accommodated the 6 of us. Condo has high-tech tv's in every room and wifi. TV has DVD player but too much to do outside so we never used it. The owners were VERY responsive when I had trouble linking into wifi...the problem was solved immediately. Two big sofas and chairs comfortable and dining table big enough for whole family. Unit is SO SPACIOUS we weren't tripping over each other. Lanai has table/4 chairs + 2 chaise lounges. Grandkids loved eating breakfast on lanai or playing card games at the dining table in the evening hours. Snorkeling at the Sands of Kahana beach was great! We saw turtles and more fish varieties than we could name. Unit is a very short drive to Whaler's Village for shopping and restaurants. Better yet, drive into Lahaina for shopping and restaurants....and take sail cruise from Lahaina wharf. We will book here again and highly recommend. Owners are gracious and very responsive to guest needs.

This condo was what I wished for and more. My family could not have been happier!! Everything about the place was wonderful. My 8 year old granddaughter did not want to leave; she spent most of her time either in the ocean or in the pool. It was nice to have the beach toys and towels available and not have to pack them. We would not hesitate to rent this again. Mahalo, mahalo, Ken and Brooke for such a lovely place. The use of the master bedroom shower was no big deal for the short time we could not use it, we adjusted....hey, we were in paradise, no big thing!!!!
