Stayed here with family in November 2019. The condo is right by the beach and the common area has a pool, spa, fitness studio and more. The condo is nice, good quality. Parking is free! We had trouble turning on the AC but figured it out. We couldn’t turn off the living room fan. The unit has a washer and dryer that is an extra bonus. Keep in mind, a safe for valuables is an extra $2 charge. Bed is a bit uncomfortable and the AC only was installed in the living room which left the bedroom too hot.
I was impressed with Kamaole Sands condos. I was expecting a musty old hawaii vibe but instead was pleasantly surprised to walk into an immaculately clean huge condo. Condo 7-409 was really nice. Sparkling clean. Brand new looking towels provided. Kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal, big fridge/freezer with ice trays, toaster, blender. Downstairs bedroom had a full sized bed & a single bed, a ceiling fan & a large floor fan. This room might get hot bc the AC is only upstairs but this room did have the fans. 1 full bathroom with a shower downstairs. Living room with tv & cable, ceiling fan. The upstairs loft had a wall unit AC, ceiling fan, 1 queen bed, 1 full bathroom with shower. The AC had a timer control to only run at 6hr increments but I found that the upstairs ceiling fan & upper window fan exhaust worked very well to keep you cool just by themselves. The outdoor lanai had a large table with plenty of chairs & 1 lounge chair. This unit has a partial ocean view & overlooks the middle grounds & pool is too the side view but far enough away that their isn’t much noise. I found it to be very quiet at all hours mostly. This complex is directly across from Kamaole 3 beach where lots of turtles are. You can walk to some of the Kihei bars & restaurants. There is a designated parking spot for you. I don’t know if the other units are similar or if each one is privately owned but I enjoyed my stay enough that I would definitely recommend it & would stay here again.
