Ocean view condo, 2 bdm, 2 bath at popular sandy beach
We live in Vancouver, Canada. Martin, a professional engineer, has a wide range of interests, including guitar, hockey, and windsurfing. Annette is a realtor and enjoys writing, paddle boarding, and community work (cystic fibrosis and environmental sustainability). We both love traveling, and Maui is one of our favorite places in the world - it's paradise on earth!
Annette purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Annette chose Kihei
We purchased this condo in 2013 after looking at about a hundred places all over Maui. We picked this property because of the ocean views, beautiful tropical landscaping, and location! location! location! One of our top priorities was to have a condo in a location where we could walk to everything, including a sandy beach, watersports rentals, swimming, paddle boarding, snorkeling, coffee shops, groceries, restaurants, clothing shops, tennis, and a fitness center - just like home in Kitsilano. Best of all, this location allows us to walk for miles along Maui's best beaches. Not only is the resort in an excellent location, but this particular condo is in the best location WITHIN the resort. The unit is strategically positioned so we have the best views and at the same time don't see or hear any vehicles, which is very important to us. When we are on vacation we want a sanctuary where we can get away from crowds and traffic and this unit allows us to do that.
What makes this Condo unique
We love being active and taking advantage of all that Maui has to offer, especially paddle boarding and walking on miles of sandy beaches, which are available right in front of our condo. But our FAVORITE place to be in Maui is right on our patio looking out at the gorgeous ocean and sunset views. In fact, although our unit is walking distance to some of Maui's best beachfront restaurants, we prefer to have all our meals and cocktails at home on our own patio!

5 nights in Maui
Beautifully landscaped property with an OK beach across the street. There were much nicer beaches in nearby Walea (Ulua beach) and up north in Kapalua & Ka'anapali. The view from the terrace was fabulous, however, the heat generated by the air conditioning units did not allow more than a couple of minutes stay outside. The unit was nicely decorated and stocked with adequate supplies. There was inadequate lighting in a few spots. Overall, we were very happy with our stay as we were centrally located to see Maui.
We’re glad to hear that you were very happy with your stay at our condo and you found the ocean & sunset views from our terrace to be fabulous. We agree the view is fabulous and we spend many hours out on the patio. It’s also great to hear that you found the unit nicely decorated and well-stocked. We do our best to provide everything that may be needed by guests.
Clean and comfortable.
The room is clean, a little outdated but nice. The morning orientation is very helpful. We had a great experience.
We are happy that you had a great experience in our condo, and found it clean and comfortable, and the customer service was helpful.
Wonderful stay in Kihei
Kihei is a great, central location for all of Western Maui. The condo was lovely and had everything we needed.
Thank you for the review. It's great that you found our condo to be lovely and well equipped. We look forward to having you back again.
Need space, convenience and all the necessities?
We spent a week in Kihei/Wailea area. The last four days we stayed in Annette's condo and were really happy to get some much-needed space.
While a little on the older side, the condo is everything you need to cook, wash clothes and rejuvenate before heading out to explore the area.
The pool was ok, but for us it didn't matter because we did very little hanging out time at the condo.
There were a few little glitches, e.g., the downstairs bathroom shower handle fell off and we had to "fix" it. Also, the water in the shower upstairs ran cold for the second person.
We did peak in a couple other condos and noticed some more updated condos, e.g., design, floors, kitchen cabinets, etc.
That said, this was a nice place to stay with a view of the beach across the street (just a few minutes to walk).
The location is also great as you can about 10 minutes to grab a coffee or get some grocery items at a small local market.
I couldn't quite figure out how all the air/lights worked, but I guess that's small. My daughter got the ac running - but there's a pretty big temperature difference between downstairs and upstairs - but I kind of liked it that way.
Again, if you need a spacious and convenient place to stay, this is a no-brainer.
We’re glad to hear that you were really happy with our condo’s extra space and ocean views. Some of our neighbors’ prices are 30% higher so we believe that we provide very good value with our condo, which was renovated six years ago and has ongoing updates. Our condo is managed by the onsite manager, so guests can phone the front desk 24x7 for assistance. I sent them your comments and they're looking into the items you mentioned immediately. We want our guests to be completely satisfied.
Vacation Rental in Kihei
This condo rental met all of our expectations. Very nice and comfortable. The view from the lanai was even more beautiful than in the pictures. It is very centrally located in Maui so that you can take off and have a new adventure everyday. Stay in Kihei, not Lahaina, because you will be stuck in traffic going back and forth if you are in Lahaina. Everything you need is in Kihei--great beaches, sunsets, stores and restaurants. Also, the condo's concierge service will provide you with all of the information you need to know to have a great trip on the island. We would stay in this condo again and we highly recommend it!
It warms our hearts to hear that you enjoyed our second home as much as we do. Thank you for the feedback.
Heaven In Maui
This was our 3rd stay in Maui and all 3 times its been at Kamaole Sands. Its a wonderful resort! This was our firs time staying at Annettes condo. Its all that is it advertised to be and more! The condo is extremely comfortable, spacious, and well positioned on the property to be able to see the ocean and overlooking the pool. Its also very clean and everything is up to date and modern! Annette was fantastic to work with, timely in her responses and very easy to work with! I can only hope to take my wife and 2 daughters back next year and we will for sure be renting from Annette again should her unit be available! Annette thank you for taking care of me and my family and allowing us to partake of the little slice of heaven you have in Maui! We loved our stay and hope to reconnect again next year!!
Thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure communicating with you too, and we look forward to having you back.
