Every amenity is supplied - air conditioning, free high speed Internet and Wi-Fi, a computer and wireless printer for guest use, a spa tub with ocean view in the master suite (all bedrooms have a bathroom ensuite) and flat screen TVs, iPod docker radios and phones in each bedroom.

About Cindy Vinson

We went to Maui for our honeymoon and have been returning ever since! We're Californians born and bred, having lived in both San Francisco and LA most of our lives.Over the years, we've come to Maui frequently with both family and friends and it's our favorite spot to kick back and relax. By now, we know the island pretty well and we're always happy to share our little-known favorite spots, activities and restaurants with you!

Cindy Vinson purchased this condo in 2000

Why Cindy Vinson chose Lahaina

We love the Sands of Kahana because of the great location, fabulous, uncrowded beach, fantastic oceanfront views that go on forever and the HUGE size of our condo - 2700 square feet to spread out in and enjoy!

What makes this condo unique

The Sands is so close to everything we want to do! Great beach, wide range of restaurants- many within easy walking distance, like Roy's and equidistant to Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua. Two of the best snorkeling spots in Maui are just a few miles away and there's great surfing right of the southern end of our beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to thank you for renting your gorgeous home to us.

We had a fantastic time! Your home was perfect for our family. Everyone had plenty of personal space as well as plenty of space for gathering together.

We appreciated your well stocked kitchen! And a very generous supply of towels!

Everything was wonderful!

The view is beyond words!

At most anytime we looked, we could see whales spouting and playing around.

Also... Several sea turtles came right up on the beach.... And numerous turtles came on the beach just south of the grounds of the Sands.... Where the rocks are...

Your home is so beautiful and sooooo comfortable!

If we ever get to go back to Maui, we will certainly check with you to see if we can rent from you again...

We all wanted to refuse to leave..... :-).

We enjoyed the island... Powered hang gliding in Hana, the road to Hana, going to the blow hole .... And all the sights on that route, Ultimate Whale Watch, snorkeling (Bob's Snorkeling.... To get the prescription goggles), swimming in the ocean, Haleakala, sea turtles, mixed lunch plates, fish tacos, gelato, Honolulu Cookies, Ono shave ice.... And so much more.

This vacation will be a fantastic lifelong memory for all five of us!

Spacious, clean, well-stocked condo with gorgeous ocean views

  • 5 of 5

The view!!! These pictures do not do it justice. We loved having our morning coffee on the patio as the sun rose and then whale watching over breakfast. We were out and about most days but when we returned, we enjoyed a cocktail on the patio as the sun set on the horizon. Overall, we had a fantastic time in Maui and a wonderful stay at this condo in March 2018. Our group included two adults, two seniors, a teenager, and two kids and everyone had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The condo was spotless and well stocked with everything from beach toys and board games to small kitchen appliances and lots of cooking tools. The beach was great for boogie boarding, swimming, and strolling - it never got very crowded - and my kids really enjoyed the adult pool as well as the kiki (kiddie) pool, which was zero entry and shallow all over (great for little ones)! We were not impressed with the restaurant onsite but highly recommend the pizza at Dollie's which is right across the street from Sands of Kahana. One thing to note about this condo is that there are sliding oriental paper doors to the master bedroom and sliding shutters to the lofted bedroom upstairs so sound does travel throughout the condo. This did not affect us as we were all on a similar schedule but it might pose a challenge for folks who have morning people and night owls in the same group.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Sarah! We are thrilled you loved the penthouse as much as we do and since our kitchen and bathroom remodel is fast approaching- beginning May 1- we imagine future guests will love it even more when we have all new Kitchen and bathrooms! As much as we love our shoji doors, we plan to replace them with solid wood sliding doors over the opening to the master bedroom, which will completely soundproof the area as well as open the view even more from the living and dining area.

The best ocean views, whales and lots of room!

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse was amazing! Tearing ourselves away from the endless

Oceanfront views of Lanai and Molokai and the whales jumping just offshore was hard- I could have stayed on the main lanai all week with a Mai Tai just watching. Plentifully stocked kitchen for making any sort of meal, great beds, plenty of towels and the place was huge to boot. It was very clean with beautiful tropical furniture and all six of us had lots of room and privacy. A perfect Maui vacation!

Owner's Response: We agree that the views from our penthouse cannot be beat! It's about to get much better, however- the date for our long-anticipated remodel is only a month away, and we can"t wait to see the brand new kitchen and bathrooms that will be revealed at the end of May, 2018! We promise that the beautiful furniture, super beds, well-stocked kitchen and complete cleanliness and attention to detail will continue as well - just all with completely modern kitchen and bathrooms. Look for our new pix online here in June!

Even better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

When I booked this condo I remember thinking that it sure looked good, but what would the reality be? The first moment we walked in, we found the answer--it is amazing! You feel completely at home and comfortable from the very beginning. It is huge, extremely well-decorated, and includes absolutely everything anyone could want or need-- cozy, comfortable furniture, generous linen and beach towel supplies, beach toys and equipment, kitchen space, appliances, gadgets, dishes, a huge pantry (that I would dearly love to have in my own home!), toys, books, movies, games--you name it, it was there! There are even strategically placed emergency flashlights throughout the condo, which came in very handy one night when a monster storm knocked out power to the whole island! The owners have put together a very thorough notebook that details not only everything you could ever need to know about the condo, but also about the island, places of interest, and dining. We were a group of six-three adults and three children ages 7 and under and everyone had more than ample space and privacy. My grandsons immediately claimed the space under the stairs as their special "fort". The lanais are spacious and well furnished, with views to die for! The grounds are beautiful and very well-kept, with lots of onsite activities. And the BBQ's are plentiful and spotless--resort staff really do clean them every morning! The proximity to the beach and the magnificent views are a dream come true.

But most of all, I can't say enough good things about the owner, Cindy. She keeps in personal touch with guests, and is readily available and responsive if any issues come up. Her commitment to her guests having the very best possible experience is obvious and very welcoming!

We can't wait to come back next year!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Marilyn! It's always our goal to make our guests feel welcome and cared for, and to provide the absolute best in our penthouse- we're so glad that we were able to do so for your family! We are excited to announce our upcoming remodel of the kitchen and bathrooms in the penthouse - to be completed by May 24, 2018. All new cabinets, granite countertops, new appliances, fixtures, lighting and of course a lot of new painting. Do come back and enjoy the remodeled penthouse!

Beautiful penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the stay. The location is amazing with easy access to so many fish and turtles. The house is quite spacious for a large group with many rooms. You can't beat the view. Cindy and Bill are so on top of things for the rental. They go out of their way to ensure everything is good for your stay. They contacted me immediately upon booking and once we arrived. You are guaranteed a good time

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jan! We're so happy to be your " go to" place to stay in Maui! We agree that in Maui it's all about the location and great oceanfront views- not to speak of the beautiful beach right below the penthouse! We love the casual, natural atmosphere at the Sands - lovely tropical grounds, beach volleyball, tennis courts, putting green, restaurant and bar by the pool and great new kid's pool and spa. Come back soon!
