About Kevin Spaise
After visiting Maui for years, Ed and Carol realized their ownership dream just this year. They've stayed in many condos through the years, and their goal was to elevate the guest experience beyond their own expectations. With that in mind, they've added a lot of extra features and owner love to this unit!
Kevin Spaise purchased this Condo in 2018
Why Kevin Spaise chose Kihei
They chose the Kamaole Sands for its amazing 15 acres of tropical grounds, the large pool with a great sunning deck and 2 Jacuzzis, and the location across the street from a beautiful beach (Kamaole III Beach). They also loved the fact that they could walk to their favorite restaurants and refreshments!
What makes this Condo unique
Kamaole III Beach Park, across the street from the unit, is truly magical. It's a sloping lawn and locals' gathering spot to watch the incredible Maui sunsets -- and a wonderful place for a quick swim and snorkel! Watch for the turtles munching the algae on the shoreline!

Great location across from Kamole III.
Property managers were great. Lots of amenities in the kitchen. Plush towels and comfortable king size bed.
Overall it was a great place to stay. Awesome central location right across from the beach.
Absolument parfait. La porte sans clé mais avec un code était un plus. Cuisine bien équipée. Conciergerie disponible et rapide. Lits très confortables. Équipement de plage disponible. TVs super! Laveuse-sécheuse un must près de la plage. BBQ communs très propres et piscine commune cozy. Plusieurs belles plages en dedans de 15 minutes, dont celles à pied du Kamaole Sands. Vraiment super!
Merci pour les belles vacances, je suggère ce site à tous! Ressemble à un resort du Sud.
Quite disappointed in the customer service by property manager Kevin Spaise
This was my 6th stay at Kam Sands since Jan 2019, but my first in this unit. I was by myself this trip. I have been coming regularly to Maui since 2007. The property is comfortable and furnished nicely. No issues there. The view from the little lanai, is miniscule, but private. You mostly look at the next door properties, parking lot.
They did lack some essentials such as frying pans, tissues, toilet paper, linens, etc. They did deliver these things when I asked. That was appreciated. The floors were covered in dirt and food pieces, but that was not cleaned when I requested. Instead I was told it was ash...but the lanai doors, windows, etc. were all closed when I arrived very late at night. Puzzling...
I was finishing cleaning up the unit at 1120 am on my check out date, when a very rude cleaner pounded on the door...demanding that I evict the property in 10 minutes...or else! She was nasty!!! I have never had an experience like that. I quickly finished and left. I invited her to come in while I was taking out my bags. A few hours later I got a call from front desk that I needed to pay a long distance bill as the owner did not supply that. I have never had to pay long distance at any of the other 5 units that I have stayed at this property. But I returned and paid the bill.
I called Kevin to tell him that, overall I was disappointed in being "barked at" by his cleaner that morning and my experience at the unit. Instead of a respectful conversation, I had an angry man losing his cool on the phone, and accusing me of "knowing" that other renters were coming in at 4 pm and "how dare I stay past the 11 am check out". He was so disrespectful that I told him I would never stay at his unit again, and because he was getting out of control, I hung up my cell phone on him. A few minutes later he called back, but I choose not to answer.
My family and I, have rented many condos over the years in Hawaii. I have always had excellent reviews from all previous VRBO's. Always 5* and offers to come back. Another owner, Judy Ward, in Kam Sands, if she has availability, lets me pay her directly. I have always had very good service from the front desk staff and owners of the units until this time around.
After being treated in such a manner, I am just glad I received my $500.00 damage deposit but won't stay in this unit again. Hopefully, you will have better luck and maybe Kevin and his cleaner were just having a bad day.
This unfortunate review is not a representation of this condo, which has 22 reviews across all platforms with an average of 4.8 out of 5 stars including this review. It is a response to our refusal to reimburse the guest for International calls she made and our refusal to refund her a portion of her stay based on her erroneous complaints.
As the guest requested following the first night of her stay, we delivered an over-sized frying pan (the 2 that were in the unit weren’t sufficiently sized for her) and pepper, which she also requested. Those were her only requests and we responded to them immediately. The complaint of the floors being unclean came 24 hours after check-in and we still sent cleaners over there to clean the floors for her.
Her claims about missing toilet paper and linens are untrue. Our company didn’t get our great reviews by ignoring the necessities.
I am sorry our cleaning team was less than patient upon her departure. Our two cleaners stood outside the unit for 35 minutes in 90-degree Maui heat because this guest ignored our 11 a.m. checkout rule and refused to leave.
Vacation-Maui goes all-out to assure the best possible guest experience, evidenced by over 400 reviews with an average of 4.9 out of 5 stars.
The condo was in a great location and the beds were super comfortable! All the beach and kitchen necessities were greatly appreciated! We so enjoyed our trip to Maui and hope to come again soon!
Beautiful condo right across from Kamaole Beachpark. The space was clean and beautifully decorated. We felt right at home. There were lots of items to borrow for a beach day - chairs, boogie boards, noodles, sand toys, etc. Relaxing environment, enjoyed ending the day in the hot tub. Will definitely be back to visit!
Located in southernmost Kihei, the most desirable part of this sun-drenched beach town. Paddleboard, kayak, snorkel, and dive within a few minutes walk from the condo. Rental facilities nearby. Close to all of South Maui's best beaches, and less than 5 minutes from all of the Wailea resorts. Beach walk right across the street, which meanders for miles along beautiful shoreline -- see turtles along the rocks, and in season, whales breaching. Great snorkeling right across the street , with one of the best reef viewing areas in Maui less than a block away (Keawakapu Beach, next to the 5 Palms). Close to more than a dozen restaurants.
