First thing people need to realize is that all of the condos are owned by individuals, therefore, every condo will be different due to the tastes and care of the owners.
We stayed in building 6 unit 402 and absolutely loved it! The condo was updated, and gorgeous. The floors are a seagrass matting, which is hard, but makes the condo smell like hay (we like that small), and are very nice to look at. The kitchen is very nice and spotless, and the bamboo hardwood floors are wonderful also. I can't say enough about this place.
The Kamaole Sands complex is as nice as I could have asked for! The pool is great and the security guys keep it orderly (there were a few kids there who were being vulgar and they stopped it immediatly). I do have to say though that your opinion of the complex would depend on what building you are in. I would only stay in buildings 4, 5, or 6 cause they are close to the pool and have great views. Two of the buildings (I think 8 and 9) look right at the neighboring condo complex, which I personally wouldn't like.
I got scared reading reviews of the complex that were written by folks that had stayed in bad units, and can't believe anyone would complain about the complex itself. The grounds are immaculate, it is right across the street from one of the best beaches in Maui, and the people there are very friendly.
And, we never saw a bug in our condo or on the complex grounds. The only time we saw any roaches was in a restaurant down the street.
We would stay at Kamaole Sands again in a heartbeat and are already planning out next trip!!!

Our group of 8 recently rented 2, two bedroom condos at the Kama'ole Sands for a week. We were all very happy with our stay. Both of the units were on the 4th floor in Building 10. One unit was second from the end nearest the road and we had difficulty sleeping a couple of nights do to noise, but otherwise were were very happy with our stay. The location across from Kama'ole Beach III allowed the adults in our group to leave the teenagers for the day and go out on our own. We all agreed we would stay here again....just be sure to get a unit back from the road a bit.

Kamaole Sands needs to have a standard for renting their condos. We stayed in Building 4 - 307 in June 2005 for our family vacation. The bed in the master bedroom and the sofabed matteress were in desperate need of replacement. There were roaches on kitchen counter and in the drawers even with all the food and non-food items stored in the refrigerator. Even with numerous calls to the front desk regarding our roach problem we still had roaches. We have been to hawaii several times and never had a roach problem like this. When we checked out after our 7 day stay we mentioned the roach problem and were told they spray quarterly and bugs are always a problem in Hawaii.

My family of 4 stayed in a 2 bd/2 ba unit in Building 4-301 from May 30th to June 9th. The owner just sold it but we had no problems at all. We booked it through Paradise Vacations. We went with another family of 7 who stayed in 3 bedroom unit at 5-116 which is owned privately and nicely updated too. We were just a parking lot walk away and further away from the pool noise. Check in was quick. Building 4 sits on the outskirts of the units. You get easy in and out access through the back gate on Keonekai Street to the Piilani freeway or Kihei Road. We got a partial ocean view from the Master Bedroom. No bugs to talk about thank goodness. This unit was very nicely updated with Tommy Bahama style furniture, granite kitchen countertops and comfy beds. I would have asked for more baking pans and I didn't find the second bathroom until the third day because we left our bedroom door open to let the air conditioned air in. The door covered the entrance to the bathroom. This was a single level unit, great for us since we have small kids and don't want them falling off the stairway. We went to Costco and bought too much food and had to leave it for the next guests. We were close to the beaches of Wailea and spent almost everyday snorkeling somewhere or swimming at the pool. Watch out for the pool monitor though. Kinda strict on the fun sometimes there. With kids ranging from 2 to 17, fun is not limited though. We went to Molokini, rode the Sugar Cane Train Ride and Luau in Lahaina- Kaanapali, went to a Luau at the Royal Lahaina Resort which is great because kids are free with each paying adult and they have a kids food bar if they don't like Kalua Pig, they can have mac n' cheese and chicken nuggets and hot dogs. We also went to the Maui Ocean Center in Maalea and really enjoyed the feeding show. The older kids went biking @ Haleakala and parasailing. Our family especially enjoyed our trip upcountry to a little place called the Alii Kula Lavender Farm. There you can have tea or lunch (reservations recommended) and enjoy a garden tour of the 45 different lavender plants they grow there. It's a good hour away but worth the trip for some peace and quiet and great lavender tea and scones. The elevation is around 4000 so the air is cooler and less humid. You can see forever from there too! A little off the beaten path but again, worth the quiet and beauty. We took the drive to Hana too and ate at Charley's in Paia for the kid's sake. The adults went back by themselves later to Mama's Fish House. Gotta have it "fresh fish" dinner, drinks, fresh ahi salad with the black pearl dessert to top it off and coffee too. My husband and I splurged on our honeymoon here 8 years ago and we did it again that night for almost the same cost. Can't believe it. I'd go there every time I'm in Maui. We went to the Hula Grill too in Lahaina but prefer Mama's. Hula's was good too, but if you want lotsa food for a good price, the local Da Kitchen is Da Best. Just down the street on the corner where the Maui Expresso stand is. Oh of course, gotta have the shaved Ice there and pick up your internet mail at the same time. There's internet access now at Kamaole Sands but you have to pay about $10 a day or $30 a week. You can get access for $1 for 5 minutes at the stand. Overall, we liked Kamaole Sands. We just remembered we were here on our honeymoon 8 years ago in Building 1 on the ground floor. The was noisy cause all the cars drive by your lanai. We were glad to be on the third floor this time. Oh, we also found the only scrapbook store on the island in Wailuku at the Island Paperie for you avid scrapbookers. For your family pictures you can get matching clothes at Hilo Hatties or try to save some money and get them at Wal-Mart. Guess that's it for now until we return in October and this time stay at the timeshare we bought.

My family had a wonderful time here. I read the bad reviews about Kamaole Sands here, but we found the place very clean, the grounds beautiful, the pool gorgeous, and the beach across the street one of the best on Maui. Our unit was tile through out, updated and beautiful furnature and cabinettes, and tastefully decorated. There was only one small (brand new) AC unit, but the owner left helpful instructions on how to open the doors and turn on the fans which turned the condo into a cool breezway (when we did use the AC, it was adequete with all the ceiling fans). It was ground floor (which was very nice) opening to a nice lawn extending down to the pool. We drove all over the island, and Kamaole Beach 3 (the beach across from the condos) is one of the most scenic beaches on the island. Getting to the beach was easy with a crosswalk and gracious drivers. The staff was very helpful and polite, and we used them several times for questunes about local food, beaches, and directions. Restaurants and food stores are just down the street, and you are only 2 blocks from the outrageously expensive Wailea area of the island.

In short, if you want Wailea, go stay there. If you want a beautiful, friendly place to stay (for WAY less), try Kamaole Sands (ask for building 3-106).
