this was my family's 1st ever trip to Maui and it took us a while to book the place we want to stay because we have a 1 year old daughter so a kitchenette, tiled floors, central location, pool and beach were key pre-requisites..we searched about 12 locations and finally we stumbled upon kihea sands thru a suggestion from my wife's co-worker. to our surprise most of our pre-requisites were satisfied in our search but when we arrived, all the hard work paid off. it was like a home away from home. my wife got to lounge about and enjoy her day in our cozy living room, the pool was literally steps away and we took every chance to play with our daughter in the water.
The condo's are a bit dated but kept up and maintained well by Maureen and her Husband Paul the office managers. They were friendly and very helpful with information about kihea area.
We bbq'd a few times and we were only a 10-20 minute drive to lahaina/k'aanapali or wailea restaurants and shops! very convenient.
the beach was inviting and you can go for an early morning walk to the Farmer's market for fresh fruit or frolic in the ocean with a boogie board or snorkel.
The kitchenette was fully stocked and so we made breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout most of the trip. Parking is free as a guest of the Kihea sands and our neighbors were all families so you really feel comfortable.
if you have a young family or a family of any size, i suggest renting a condo at Kihea Sands to reduce all the stress out of your trip. Aloha and enjoy Maui.
