Rating Details: The property manager was very 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: Our vacation at Sands of Kahana was for a month beginning mid January. The condo is very nice. It needs badly to have an upgrade with respect to kitchen utensils.The barbecues for the complex are in poor repair, very few are working and It becomes really inconvenient and frustrating.with so many people trying to barbecue with so few BBQS working big draw back for the facility.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My husband and I booked Maui over the Christmas holidays and were so thrilled with selecting this unit! The unit had expansive windows in every room and the use of the washer/dryer was life saving! The steps to the sandy beach were top notch - and something VERY few other locations have on the coast. We found the price reasonable for the unit and comparable to its condition (a few items needed repair/updating) but overall nothing beat the morning view from the patio as whales breached out in the ocean.

We were very pleased that it had an a/c unit in the bedroom. My only complaint is that someone took my shoes at the pool and they were not returned. We will definitely be back, however.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. 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 property description of the condo is accuate as the corner condo does have very good views of the ocean and mountains. The amenities within the condo are good, cutlery and dishes do need an upgrade soon.The biggest inconvenience was the outdoor BBQ's for condo users, they were mostly inoperative. This is a significant issue and should be corrected. Most condo users want to cook outdoors and usually it happens at the same times (meal times). With only 1 of 4 BBQ's operational at our building it made BBQing frustrating and almost impossible to do. It was the same situation at the other buildings as well as it was difficult finding an operational BBQ's at the other buildings.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great location! Across the street was a small convenience store, sushi restaurant, and a pub. Just up the street is Maui Brewing company which has excellent food and beer (super close walk). The room had a nice corner view of the ocean. My only complaint is that there were no staple spices (salt, pepper, garlic etc) that I have always found at other rentals. The concierge was very helpful. The beach is rocky so bring your water shoes for sure. Comfortably slept 4 adults.

Rating Details: The property manager was somewhat unhelpful. The vacation rental was very dirty. I was somewhat unhappy with the location. I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have been owners since 1999. We moved from a 2 bdrm to this 1 bdrm for our 2nd week. Unit was very dirty, was not cleaned. After unpacking we sat down to notice our feet were completely black! Floors were filthy. Pulled carpet back, total dirt line.(I have photos)Unit door in Kit was not opening. Kit & Liv Rm were very hot, absolutely no air flow. Fan needs to be thrown out. Was on full force yet air could not be felt. Useless. We had to have the exterior unit door open in order to get any airflow in there. Does this permanent door closure violate fire codes? We called 2Xto ask if door could be opened w no response. Found coffee pot dirty with a moldy coffee filter in it. Disgusting! Dust was very thick on furniture, I could actually write in it.(I have Photos) Very dirty glass panels on Lanai obstructed the view.2nd bath drawer falls off its track.Mstrbath glass window panels in shower were moldy. Cookware (frying pan) needs replacement. Everything sticks&burns in it. I spent way too much time cleaning that pan. Get a Non stick pan. We basically lived in the bedrm which had A/C that wouldn't be needed if the airflow could return to how the unit was designed. I will not review this unit on any other site, as I would like to think these things could be improved upon to keep the integrity of the SOK at its best. I've been a Realtor for 40 yrs & know what it takes to offer the basics for a comfortable stay. This was the 1st time we were very disappointed with our accommodations. This unit was not worth the money we paid. We tried to leave the unit as much as we could to not have to spend time in it. I did not get the benefit of the cleaning fee we're all paying. Owner has been ripped off,& us too, as this unit hasn't been cleaned in a long time. Please rectify.

Location was great. On the beach, grounds were beautiful. The condo had everything that you would need, but the cleanliness was really lacking. The clock in bedroom did not work, the floors were filthy. Walked from living room to bathroom and back and the bottom of my feet were black. With Covid on the rise one would think it would be cleaned better.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: hi place was nice at the beginning , wish i was notified of it having small bugs, i had a lot of bug bites which was not fun .. the place looked larger in the pictures, didn't realize there was just a long hallway which was kind of misleading, but overall it was ok since it was my first time in maui, wish the living room area had an A/C unit as well.

The view was perfect, the bed was very comfortable (it’s always hard when beds aren’t comfortable on vacations!). The kitchen was stocked with lots of cookware which made nights in so much easier. We can’t wait to book our trip again with Sullivan Properties!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have stayed in unit 231 at the Sands of Kahana serval times. It is an excellent unit with wonderful oceans views for whale watching and a second deck with great views of the mountains. This corner unit allows for great air flow which keeps condo very comfortable even on the hottest days. Condo has a second bathroom which is excellent. Overall the condo is a very good vacation get away. Although the cutlery needs to be replenished an a can opener is needed. The general location is great as it is only 10 minutes from Lahania and very close several other great beaches and is within walking distance to several good restaurants. We had a fun time during our 35 day stay. We are going back!!
