“Family trips to maui”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

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.

We love the privacy and friendly atmosphere of this condo. The cost compares with any other beachfront rental in Kihei. I have stayed with a toddler, couples and ladies only. It works well for families-any or all. The building is getting older and parts have been redone, but not all. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place. It is well stocked, clean and perfectly functional for a wonderful beach holiday experience. You are so close to the beach you can run back and forth all day if you like. There are always noodles, kids sand toys, styro boards to use and the outdoor pool and tanning area are spotless.

We stayed at Kihei Sands (Unit A6) for the month of February 2011. We rented directly from the very friendly, professional owner. The booking process was perfectly explained, understandable, and smooth. Not having ever been to Maui, I was full of apprehensions and questions which were completely answered, plus more, by the owner through email contact. The condo location is well situated near to just about anywhere you want to go. Though it sounds like it's too good to be true, the condo is seriously only steps from the ocean! It is awesome. We found the morning coffee and the evening social gatherings on the property patio to be our favorite as we met so many wonderful people! The beauty of this beach condo is stunning, breathtaking mountains, ocean, and sugar sand beach in one glance. You can drink your coffee and watch the wales and enjoy glorious sunsets. The condo itself is very clean and nicely decorated. Everything you need is there. We cooked a lot as we were tired of eating out from a previous trip, so we really appreciated this well-equipped, user friendly kitchen, as well as the use of the grills on the patio. We ate most of our meals on our own private patio. You just can't ask for more! Gina, the housekeeper and owner assistant is indeed a jewel in her personality and help. We loved her. It was beautiful and warm weather during our stay and we found it fantastic that the bedroom stayed so cool, day and night. The property has a beautiful breezeway area that allows the air to remain consistently cool through the bedroom window. It was very comfortable for sleeping. The bed was very comfortable and the linens fresh and clean, including the bedspread.....which is important to me.The pool was very well cared for and our free Internet service was the best. It is best to rent a car while in Maui because there is so much to see and do. We loved our stay in A6 and would return without hesitation.

Better late than never to write a trip report about the Kihei Sands. My wife and I have staying at the Ksands on our trips to Maui ever since our Honeymoon in 1993. The property and condos have gone through a very nice refurb over the years. It's a small complex with about 28 units. Great location being on, (not by or near) one of Maui less crowded swimming beaches, Sugar Beach. Very easy to get on the road from here for your sightseeing and beach fun. The Ksands condos are a very good value on the island of Maui and tend to be rented by families or the older generation looking for this. Most of the units are managed by on site managers Paul and Maureen who are very nice and helpful. A few others are managed by the units individual owner. My wife and I decided to go with unit A-6 on our last trip which is one of the condos that is managed by it's owner. The unit is on the ground floor and just a few steps to the very nice common BBQ/Pool/Beach area. The unit was well appointed, clean and the owner helpful with all questions asked about it or Maui in general. No problems with the bed or noise as expressed by an earlier poster. We would return to A-6 in a heartbeat and most likely will on our next trip to "The Valley Island".

My husband and I stayed in unit A-6 and our stay there was sublime. We had mostly couples and a few families there and found the surroundings very serene. We were pleasantly surprised at how well equipped the condo was- we really had need for nothing, enjoying our morning coffee on the lanai was incredible every morning. We felt like new people by the end of our week there. We found the farmers fruit stand across the street the perfect addition to our Hawaiian experience with delicious fruits and local veggies, homemade dips and banana bread. The owner went out of her way to help us find Maui's gems with all the information we were given. I cant wait to stay there again
its so close to the ocean so we loved stepping out our front door and being right there!
