unforgettable Maui vacation
We really enjoyed our stay at Lani Kai condo. The apartment is spacious, well appointed, modern and immaculate. The linens were excellent and the bed was extremely comfortable.The kitchen is well-appointed and we weren't lacking in anything to make a wonderful meal.The apartment is in an excellent location, within walking distance from the nice beaches.We will definitely be back!
Great location with a "large" lanai. Recently renovated and very well done, and tiled throughout which we appreciated. Lot's of counter space and very open kitchen with the completed renovation. We have stayed in a few of the condos in this complex and this one is at the top of the list!
Drew & Cathleen
loved all the amenities
Condo had all we needed. Great location...have stayed at Kamaole Sands for last 10 yrs. This is the 1st we used Vrbo &is; now our preference.
Canadian sun seeker.
Best vacation condo I have ever stayed in.
This Lani Kai unit was very well furnished and decorated with elegant touches that exceeded any other we have seen. It can rival any 5 star hotel.
The beds, appliances, utensils and linens were excellent and very clean. We particularly appreciated being provided beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, picnic cooler, and a number of cooking staples.
This whole complex is ideally located for beaches, eateries and shopping. The building and grounds are very attractive, well kept and meticulously clean.
We loved the pool and hot tub as well as the interesting orchid wall.
This home base added to our being very impressed with Maui as a vacation destination.
Fort St John, B.C.
Great location and accomodations
This is our 4th time to Maui, 2nd time staying at Kamaole Sands which is right across from Kamaole Beach. Building 3 is a great location as the sun does not shine right into the unit, we never had to turn on the air conditioning once, just used the fans in the living room and bedroom. You also don't hear traffic from the highway or coming in and out of complex. Communication from the owner was great which included a list of things to do and see while in Maui, accomodations were very nice, coolers & beach towels were available to use which is handy for taking cold water to the pool or beach. Bed was very comfortable!
Mike & Ronnie
Our stays in Kihei just got alot better finding this place.
We were quite surprised to find such a beautiful and well decorated unit for the price. spacious, beautiful kitchen with everything you need including Tommy Bahama beach chairs and beach umbrella to make for comfortable days on the beach. The grounds were immaculate, the pool refreshing, plenty of Bbqs for those who like to do a little home cooking, A paper each morning, a comfortable bed. I guess the only bad thing I can say is we were on the 2nd floor so we had to use the stairs, which was probably good for us considering all the good food we found close by.

Lani Kai Condo - Maui
With over a dozen stays in the Kihei area, most of them at this complex, Lani Kai is the most well kept, well appointed condo. The management was not helpful with multiple key problems, but the unit itself was spectacularly kept, stocked, and the owner was accessible but not intrusive. The information provided was exactly as the experience. Very convenient in the Kihei area, excellent value, highest quality condo.
Excellent clean and comfortable!
We stayed here for 10days for our Honeymoon from Sept 15-25th. The location in South Kehei is great to access the best Wailea beaches which are just minutes away or simply cross the street from the condo to access the three Kam beaches. The restaurants and stores are close as well. As for the condo it was in excellent shape both inside and out. The balcony overlooked a big courtyard filled with trees and chirping birds. The public BBQ shelter is just out back and next to the swimming pool and hot tubs. The grounds are very well kept. I was impressed with the décor and upper scale remodel. Free wifi and the most comfortable bed were superb! There was a closet full of goodies to borrow which included many beach chairs, boogy boards, snorkel gear, umbrellas, coolers, and beach mats. We didn't have to buy a thing! If we return I most definitely will stay in the exact condo; I wouldn't dare risk staying anywhere else. Thanks to the owners!
Dennis and Dominique
Perfect location and well appointed unit
Right across the street from Kam III beach on most southern part of Kihei...only 5 minutes to Wailea or 5 minutes to downtown Kihei. Very convenient!!
Gated security was nice and unit was very comfortable. Love the authentic Hawaiian bamboo furniture.

Amazing Trip to Maui Made Better by a Stay Here
This condo was amazing and more than we could have asked for on our trip to Maui. It was beautiful, clean, close to Kamaole Beach Park III, restaurants and many other sights on the island. The owners were beyond helpful and responsive to our emails, questions and anything we needed. I would recommend staying here to anyone and we certainly will stay here again on our next trip!
This is our 3rd time visiting Maui for vacation, we had tried resort, other vacation home, this time with Rob's condo is the best experience, the condo is recently remodled, very clean and well-kept condition, kitchen is fully equipped, the grill by the condo is easy to use. Balcony is spacous with awesome view to garden, we used the surf boards in the storage which is plus. Thanks to Rob, we have the best vacation ever.
Frankfurt - Germany
We stayed in the condo for about 12 days and really can say that it was all over great. The condo was very clean and in excellent condition. The large balcony invites to have breakfast in the morning or just relax during the day. There are many people taking care of the gradens and the other areas of the Resort with really attention to detail (have really not seen that so often before). The area around the condo offer a lot Restaurants and shop which is great. Your can reach everything perfectly from there. Recommendation and my absolut Favorit is was "Big Beach". Like in Paradise! Everyone who will stay in that condo will definately enjoy the time being there.
Everything we needed for a perfect stay in Maui!
Excellent customer service from owner. The condo is clean and modern, it has everything you need for a home away from home. The grounds are expertly maintained with amazing tropical fruit and flower trees right outside the lanai. Great swimming pool. We couldn't be happier!
Absolutely perfect stay!!!
Can't say enough about how beautiful the condo is and how modern the renovation is. Love every aspect, from the pool, to the beautiful Kam III beach directly across the street.
This is the second time we have stayed at this condo. I love it! It's updated, equipped with everything you may need from the kitchen, as well as for the beach! Rates are very reasonable and the condo complex location is awesome. I would definitely stay there again!
Relaxed luxury in beautiful Kihei!
Having never been to Maui before, we weren't sure what to expect from our condo - sometimes those website pictures can be very creative! We were extremely happy to arrive to a clean, modern, comfortable condo with every amenity we could possibly expect. The lanai was huge with a gorgeous garden view, the kitchen was spacious and modern, the bathrooms were beautifully renovated and the king sized bed was oh, so comfy. The location in the complex was perfect - quiet, but near the beach and the allocated parking spot was very close. We highly recommend Lani Kai!
Home away from home
We very much enjoyed our stay in this clean, quiet, well located condo. We were very comfortable, loved the bed and slept so well. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai each afternoon, which faces south onto the lovely landscaping. The condo was well equipped with everything you might need in the kitchen, beach towels and things for the beach. A parking spot is included.
The condo complex itself is well maintained and not full of yahoos. It is directly across the road from Kamaole Beach III and only 7 or so minutes from great restaurants and other amenities. It is at the south end of Kihei, so a quick drive to Wailea and beyond. The complex has a large pool and fitness area (which is a little tired but entirely usable) and they host a mai tai and ukelele party each Wednesday afternoon. The are several large, well maintained outdoor BBQ facilities throughout the complex.
The service, correspondence and activity suggestions we received from the owner were first rate. In fact, it was much better than any hotel I've stayed at. We would have no hesitation to return to this condo nor to recommend it to others.
Modern comfortable condo
We have stayed in a few different units at Kamaole Sands and found this one to be the best we have tried. The king size bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well supplied, the unit was well maintained and had several little features that made all the difference. We also really liked the kitchen remodel and large lanai. The unit has a "cameo" view of the ocean which is the only thing we really missed.
Magical Maui + Luxurious comfort
Our stay at Lani Kai Condo exceeded our expectations. The owners have completed a tasteful renovation on this unit as well as equipping with every amenity necessary for a memorable stay. This unit at Kamaole Sands is an excellent location with Ocean glimpses and excellent garden views. 2nd floor access enables quick entrance to the unit after spending the day at the lovely beach across the street or returning to the unit after using the immaculate
BBQ areas. The extra large Lanai was delightful and we used it regularly for most of our meals. Clean luxurious linens,bedding and towels are provided and welcomed to make us feel at home and comfortable. We will be back!!!
We spent a week at this lovely spot. We arrived to a very clean and well equipped condo, and loved the huge lanai to eat all our meals and relax on. Rob had made the booking process very smooth and ensured we were well informed of the complex and the area. Lots of books and information on the island available in the condo. Great experience!
John & Jackie
Good location, great condo
We stayed in 7-209 for a week. The lanai is one of the larger ones in the complex, with shade all day and a view of the gardens. The beach is across the road and has great snorkelling and swimming. There is also a park with grass. Mai tai party on Wednesday is a must. Barbecue area is fantastic and becomes a social gathering place in the evenings.
The condo is upgraded and well equipped with beach chairs, towels, etc.
Thanks, Rob for a great week.

Warm & sunny Kihei, Maui
We have just returned from a great three weeks at the Kamaole Sands Resort Condo,which we found to be very comfortable, well equiped with everything you would need includinf a washer & dryer, emmaculately clean,with ceramic tile throughout the suite including the large lanai, all the comforts of home, truly!!
The complex consists of 10 four floor buildings which face into a large garden and pathway area with a large pool and recreation area at one end and small lakes with fountains at the entry area. We were in a middle area condo which was quiet overlooking the the tropical garden area.Also the buildings are concrete so you don't hear anything from your neighbours, specially as the complex is family oriented.
We found the location to be convenientto to everything, in the Kihei area some resturants were a short walk away,Wailia Shopping Centre is a close 10 minute drive.
and most of all lots of fantastic beaches all close at hand
Rob the owner was great, making sure we were comfortable and even lined us up with a good deal on a rental car. Probably one of the best things about this condo or for that matter all of Maui is that it is safe, you can move about without concern.
warm and feel like home
At the beginning we were a little bit afraid to book on the Internet. We contacted Ron (the owner) and it was an easy and safe way to process (paypal). The condo is as luxurious as the pictures shown on the Internet. The location is ideal for the sunset and for travelling around the island. The water of the pool is really warm and there are hotter tubs. There is a BBQ area just next to the unit, quiet and clean. The washing machine and the dryer are located in the condo which are really useful. We can't wait to come back. Perfect for couples or families. Safe, clean and quiet. And its a near everything!

Best week ever!! Easy time find. Close to good food and beaches. Didn't play golf but great course nearby.
Jerry & Wendi
Can't wait to return!
The condo was exactly as pictured. Very clean and well maintained. We immediately felt "At Home" and not like we were in a rental.
There are guide books in the living room, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolars and two new float rings in the balcony storage area. We made use of everyting!
The kitchen was well stocked and clean..clean..clean!
Tip-check out the kitchen before you go to the grocery store and go to Safeway! We found out about Safeway on day 8 after we paid way too much for groceries.
The close proximity to the beach was better than any of the resorts that we visited.
The grounds are very well maintained and at night are even prettier.
A quick walk to Fred's Mexican cafe for breakfast and later for drinks was our daily routine.
I only needed to contact Rob because we arrived very early and needed to know if the unit was ready. He responded quickly. We had no issues during our 10 day stay and no need to call him or the office.
We look forward to a return visit next year and for many years to come.

We stayed at this condo in august 2012 and had a wonderful time. The Condo was very clean, well appointed and in a great location. The condo was just like the pictures. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the deck overlooking the beautiful grounds.
Prince Rupert, BC Canada
Perfect family vacation spot
Rob was awesome to deal with. He gave us all the details we needed about the condo and about travelling to Maui with children. The condo was clean and comfortable. We loved all the complex amenities (the pool, the foosball table, ping pong, mai tai party, gym, gardens, and geckos!), we felt safe and relaxed our entire trip. Having the beach right across the street was the icing on the cake!
Fantastic condo in Maui - we will stay again!
The condo was terrific - it had everything that we needed! It is very nicely renovated with a terrific kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The lanai is huge and has an amazing view of the beautiful garden. My only comment is that the bedroom gets a bit warm at night. The fans definitely help but having a/C in the bedroom would be an added bonus. The next time we are in Maui, we will definitely stay in this condo again!
Great condo; perfect location
Our 10 days at Lani Kai were perfect. The location, right across the street from Kamaole III park and close to casual Kihei dining as well as upscale Wailea, couldn't have been better. The grounds, pool, and bar-b-que facilities were excellent. The second floor location allowed us to catch the trade winds. The condo has been beautifully updated with granite bathrooms and kitchen, and nice linens, towels and dishes. Even though there were only two of us we loved having two bathrooms. The only teeny tiny thing I could find to ding them on was the shower in the master bathroom, which left the floor soaked every time we used the shower.
The unit came with beach towels and chairs, coolers and a beach umbrella. In addition, instead of throwing out everything the previous guests leave behind, the owners thoughtfully leave condiments, spices, and even beer in the fridge. We "paid forward" a few things of our own.
The owner was very friendly and super easy to work with. We can't wait to book our next stay at Lani Kai.

A Condo Owner Who Really Cares That Your Stay In Maui Is Enjoyab
The condo owner Rob was really helpful in getting my family the best rate for the condo, our flight to/from lax, and a mid-sized car rental. The location of the condo in Kihei was ideal to explore the the rest of Maui. Rob also recommended some great deals and eating places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The condo is fully equipped and comfortable so we would definitely stay there again!
comfortable, relaxed, everything well organised and as described
This was a very easy and pleasant stay, with good value and convenience. Condo well located and equipped, the setting is lovely with beach across the road and pool as well. Owner very helpful with fulsome instructions and instant response to any query.
Best Value at Unbeatable Location!
My daughter was married recently at the Grand Wailea resort. Not being able to afford comfortable accommodations there for 3 adults, we decided to try this nearby condo. It is indeed a short distance to Wailea (an easy 5 minute drive), and this location is central to any activities you want to do while on Maui. The condo has one bedroom with en suite bathroom, a beautiful kitchen with granite counters, a dining room, living room with sleeper sofa, and a good sized lanai/patio. The king-sized bed in the bedroom was quite comfortable (my hubby preferred it to our bed at home!). While the bathroom had the sink and mirror in the bathroom itself, the large dresser and mirror in the bedroom provided a great alternative spot to do hair and makeup.
Both the bedroom and living room have ceiling fans, and we found it is much more comfortable to keep the windows open and fans on when in the unit. The control for the living room fan is on the half wall under the kitchen counter, which wasn't obvious at first.
The lanai is wonderful and includes a nice sized table and chairs. We ate breakfast out there every morning and enjoyed the sounds of the local birds and the view of the beautiful grounds. There's even a small ocean "peak" from the lanai.
The unit is on the second floor, and not far from the elevator, so easy and quick to get to. The grounds of the complex are clean and well maintained, and we did not have any problems with noise from other occupants. (A small parking issue was quickly addressed and solved by the owner! Mahalo!)
This unit is perfect for a couple, or 3 people. I can't imagine finding a nicer place for the money. Definitely a great value and I would highly recommend this place to friends and family.
Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada
Beautiful Maui Condo
Condo was beautifully renovated, clean and comfortable. I would rent this unit again! The Kamaole Sands Resort is a gorgeous condo unit to stay in. The barbeque pits are well maintained and cleaned every night. The pool area is nice with pingpong and a decent gym. We stayed here with 30 people for our wedding and was relaxed close distance to nearby pubs and shopping and across from Kamaole 3 beach which is one of the nicest along the Kiehi strip. The only thing to remember is Maui is quiet at ten o'clock pm and the resort condos are strict on the noise volume.
Great location in a superb family focused complex
This unit was very clean and came with all the amenities that a family would need to have an amazing Maui vacation!
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
This condo has a great view of the gardens and grounds from the extra big lanai. It was a comfortable and convinient location, with many of the amenities of home (dishwasher, washer and dryer, full utensils in kitchen, beach gear, towels). The condo is in walking distance of coffee shops, shopping, restaurants and beaches. We spent a great deal of time walking around and early morning walks on the beach!
The recent upgrades truly make a difference relative to other units in the complex. Location within the complex was excellent as well. I would rebook.
Nevada City, CA
A beatiful and relaxing way to spend the week with family.
We enjoyed our visit to Kihei in mid March staying at Lani Kai Condo. The accommodations were ideal. It has everything we needed, we have family on the island and needed a place to get away yet be close to everything. The complex is set up like a resort but feels much more like being at home. The quiet hours are nice because everything settles down at night. I would definitely recommend this condo. The complex really works on keeping the area clean and the Bbq's are so nice to have.
Perfect condo in Kihei, Maui
My husband and I had a wonderful stay in condo unit 7-209 at the Kamaole Sands condo resort directly across the street from beautiful Kamaole Beach III. The resort is 15 acres of lush foliage, tropical birds, pool area, bbq grills, tennis courts and more. Unit 7-209 is located in the inner courtyard area. A wonderfully clean, spacious, comfortable, remodeled one bedroom two bath condo, with a large lanai great for enjoying your morning tea and coffee, all your meals, and of course, tropical drinks! Granite counters in the fully equipped kitchen, a large fridge/freezer with an ice maker, and everything you need to cook up a gourmet meal!
Huge, comfortable king size bed, was perfect for a great night's sleep. The two updated bathrooms are bright and clean.
The owners of this unit have gone out of their way to make sure you have everything you need for your perfect Hawaiian vacation. Beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas are also included for your convenience.
There's also shopping and dining within a few minutes walk from the resort. ( You don't want to miss Fred Mexican restaurant :)
Wonderful Maui Vacation
We just returned home from a extended holiday in Maui. We stayed for a 26 days in this beautiful condo. The remodeling of this condo really opens up the space compared to others in the complex. The lanai is large and more private, and the bed in the master bedroom is super comfortable, also very important to consider when making a choice where to stay. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Courtenay, BC, Canada
Very pleasant stay in comfortable surroundings in a well-maintai
Very nicely upgraded condo with a lovely large lanai with view of the gardens of Kamaole Sands. Great location within the complex.
This was our first time to Maui, but it will not be our last! The location of the condo is excellent for exploring the island. If you don't want to explore it's still ideal because there's a beautiful beach right across the street that is great for snorkeling,body surfing and taking in gorgeous sunsets. We loved coming home each day to relax and refresh from the day's adventures! We will be back!
The best holiday I have ever had
When I first saw the pictures of the condo, I was impressed. However, when I saw the condo, I was overwhelmed. It was much more than I expected and made my holiday perfect. The premises were spectacular, and so very well kept. Everyone, I mean everyone, was friendly and willing to help. Even though there was construction going on, the workers were very respectful to the times they worked as well the people around. This holiday was to celebrate my 50th birthday. I could not have had a better one I would stay again and highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you (Mahalo)
Comfortable Kihei condo complete with everything you need
My family (including 2 y.o.) had a great stay at the Lani Kai condo in august 2011. We actually had stayed at other units in the Kamaole Sands complex on two or three other visits. But in comparison, this condo was far and above the nicest unit we have experienced, particularly the king size bed and recently upgraded kitchen and baths. The Kihei location is central to pristine beaches, restaurants, and shopping. The condo has everything you need for a Maui trip, including beach towels, mats, chairs, coolers, and even a bodyboard. We had several meals in-house and the kitchen was stocked with several oils, sauces, and seasonings. This was quite helpful since we didn't need to run back to the store for this or that. The owner was very communicative and thorough. We can tell he has put some thought and investment into the unit. We look forward to a return visit soon!
Your condo is fabulous! It's neat, well equipped and in a very convenient location! We love it! And you provided very helpful information. Thank you.
Port Moody, BC Canada
Great stay! Beautiful quiet location close to beach
We stayed here for 10 days and wish we had booked longer!! It was our first time in Maui so we really had no idea where to book, but boy did we luck out! Walking distance to restaurants and shops and a 2 minute walk out the door to the most beautiful beach in South Kihei, we were in paradise! Our kitchen was fully equiped with everything we needed to make all our meals, including BBQ tools and spices. Top of the line appliances including a dishwasher and ice maker in the freezer, everything was very clean and made us feel comfortable with staying there. The bedroom was nice with a very comfortable California king size bed it was hard to get out of bed every morning! Our living room was very cozy and it led out towards a beautiful lanai where we had breakfast on every morning overlooking the gardens and dinner every night watching the sunset. We took advantage of the beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie board and beach towels which was nice because we didn't have to worry about buying anything! The pool area is great and I especially loved the Mai Tai party on Wednesdays with live music! It was nice having a pool to go to once the breeze picked up at the beach and things got too sandy. We booked our Laua from the Expedia agent stand at the pool. We are definitely going to be staying here again and we have been telling all our friends and family about this condo.
Great Condo with very nice upgrades at great location
This condo was almost perfect, the one and only draw back was the ac not cooling off the bedroom at night. It is in the perfect location for snorkeling/beach going and walking distance to some fun resturants/bars. Very nice upgrades throughout and the beach coolers and chairs were a huge bonus.
Amazing trip for our 10 year anniversary!
The Lani Kai Condo was amazing. All the comforts one could ask for. Right down from some great restaurants with some awesome happy hours. Also across from some of the best beaches in Maui. We loved Kam II for swimming and hanging out during the day. The pool is nice an relaxing. Of all of the island we loved this location the most! Close to Grand Wailea (Amazing Spa), Big Beach...etc. Can't wait for our next visit!
Thank you so much!
Renewal and Rest
We were wanting a getaway for our 30th anniversary and knew of this resort in Kihi. When we got in touch with Rob from Lani Kai we couldn't have been treated better. He made all our arrangements with so much ease and went out of his way. When we arrived at the condo we felt the pictures didn't do them justice - reality exceeded. It is such a beautiful property with all that we could have wanted. The deck had an outlook into the gardens and lawns which we enjoyed from morning to night. The beach equipment was wonderful to use, the kitchen was excellent - it was our little home away from home. Two weeks of bliss! We walked the beaches staight from the condo and even walked to a couple of restaurants. We used the reference books in the condo daily for our travels - every need seemed to be met. We are planning our return!
A Wonderful Stay in a Wonderful Place
My extended family and I all stayed at the Kamaole Sands for 8 nights in June. We were there for my wedding, and we had a total of 5 different units rented out. My husband and I were in unit 7-209. It was gorgeous.
Our condo (7-209) was fully stocked with everything you could ever want. Dishes, towels, a blender, a toaster... There was a closet on the balcony full of body boards, snorkel gear, and mini-coolers. Make sure you look for this closet before you go out and rent snorkel gear, etc. because all of our units had one of these.
The grounds at the Kamaole Sands are gorgeous, and there are BBQ pits everywhere for your use. They are Weber Bbq's and are kept in top notch condition. We saw people out there every morning cleaning them after they had been used. We had Bbqs two nights while we were there.
The pool area at the Kihei sands is really quite nice. Lots of chairs, two hot tubs (one hot, and one cooler for kids) and a kiddie pool.
The beach across the street (Kamaole III) is also gorgeous. Staffed by life-guards, calm, and clear and clean. Their is a rocky reefe area that is great for snorkeling-- fish and sea-turtles.
All said, it was a wonderful stay! We will be back!
The condo was neat and tidy. It was a convenient location to the beaches, shopping, and dining. A definite plus having a washer and dryer in the unit. The owner supplied almost everything down to the beach chairs, umbrellas, and coolers. The grounds were kept well. Definitely a family oriented complex. The complex was noisy. I would recommend this complex to friends with families.

Condo was great but no a/C in bedroom
The location of the condo was great. Kamaole Sands is a wonderful complex. The condo was clean and offered everything that was advertised except the air conditioning. When we found this rental it was with homeaway.com. It listed it as having air conditioning. While there was a unit in the living room it had a timer on it and did nothing to cool down the bedroom. It was February in New Jersey so the heat at night in Maui made it impossible to sleep. The wind died down at night and even with a fan and no blankets it was brutal. Don't get me wrong here...The condo is all that you could hope for and is in a perfect location. Rob was great to deal with. I just have to have air conditioning to sleep and going from 20 degrees to 80 made it feel like a steam room.
Very nice condo, but prefer to be right on beach
The condo was great, with brand new everything and what a treat to have access to snorkels and boogie board. I only wish the condo was right on the beach (as I am a bit of a beach hippie) and I was not informed of the $25.00 fee for services which i did not want or use (pool, daily paper, computer access).

Great condo. Clean unit, well kept grounds and just a short walk to the beach. Centrally located. Nicely appointed with eveything you need for your stay plus beach chairs and beach towels. We would definetly rent here again.

Beautiful condo in the perfect location!
We love staying in this condo unit at Kamaole Sands. The unit had everything we could need - from boogie boards to extra beach towels, to a fully stocked kitchen and guide books. We really enjoyed the location of the complex being within walking or driving distance to the best beaches and eating spots on Maui. We loved having our breakfast on the large lanai every morning while listening to the birds and smelling the sweet tropical flowers and trees. We can't wait to plan our next trip and would definitely stay here again!
I would highly recommend this unit!
This condo is clean, beautifully appointed and perfectly located in the complex. Very convenient to the pool and grill areas, yet still very quiet. We enjoyed the large lanai and it's views every morning and evening. Everything we needed for our stay was provided. We took advantage of the guest book comments and guidebooks to locate some out of the way beaches and great restaurants. We will definitely stay here again!
The Best of Southern Maui
This is a recently remodeled condo in a large complex with beautifully landscaped and maintained surroundings. The location, directly across from Kamaole III beach, is convenient for walking to the beach, restaurants, and shops. Everything you'll need from Bosch and Kitchenaid appliances, to kitchen utensils, nice linens, beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, and a comfy king-sized bed is here.

Great place to get away and relax
This is our third trip to Maui and we have always enjoyed this complex. Our condo is nicely upgraded and has everything you need from a great location, to the little extras like the beach toys. Always a pleasure to come back and just relax. The short walk to the ocean for sunset each night is always a good way to end your day on holidays
Right where we want to be.
We've stayed at this beautiful condo twice and are looking into booking for a third time. It's smack-dab in the middle of where we want to be...between Keawakapu Beach, Wailea and the fun part of South Kihei Rd. If it isn't within walking distance it's a short hop in the car.
The condo itself is beautiful, the furnishings are perfect and there really isn't anything bad that can be said.
Who would have thought that getting woken up at sunrise would be so pleasurable?! And by that I mean the sounds of the birds, not anything else!
Keep your eyes out for the un-titled cd in the entertainment center...whoever burned those songs has great taste in music, unless you don't like Zep.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We found everything we needed including beach eqiuipment. New tastefully renovated. One of the best locations in Kihei.
We hope to return again soon.
Fabulous Kihei Condo
We travelled to Maui with our 2 children and 16 other family members for Christmas. Everyone sayed at the Kamaole Sands and all agreed this unit was the nicest. It is beautifully remodelled. It was clean, comfortable and had all the ammenities you would want. It had a large lanai (which not all units have) looking onto the inner courtyard, but far enough from the pool to not be bothered by the noise.
The owner was kind, helpful and easy to communicate with.
I would return and highly recommend the unit to others.
Thanks for a great stay!
Excellent place to stay at Maui!!
Very comfortable property and convenient place to go out eating and sightseeing. There is 4 tennis courts, many BQQ places, and a pool & jim. Also the room is very clean and neat. If we could come back to Maui, of course we would like to stay at Lani Kai Condo!!

Beautifully renovated, very comfortable, great location
We had a wonderful time at Kamaole Sands. The condo was beautifully renovated and it was a great location. Close to the beach as well as the pool. Wonderful gardens. Even had a choir of birds each evening at sunset.
The only thing we did not have was a water view but the gardens made up for it. The owner was very accomodating to work with, got back with answers very quickly. We loved our stay there and hope to come back again sometime.
Beautiful condo in a great location
We enjoyed our stay at Lani Kai, the condo was very clean and well equipped. The location was fantastic close to everything. Short walk to beautiful beaches. Favorite breakfast place: Kihei Cafe fantastic breakfast, suggest the 1 1/2 mile walk each way as the portions were huge. Will definately look into renting here again in the future.
In addition the owner was very helpful with the booking, even got us a great deal on last minute airfare.
very clean and very comfortable
great location. close to restaurants golf and shopping. a two minute walk to a beautiful clean beach
Wow! What a great unit!
Thank you sooo much for accommodating my wife and I, as the unit was awesome! We took full advantage of the supplied snorkel gear, umbrella's and the chairs, along with the other benefits of the suite! It was a really great pad, and I was really impressed with the way that the staff at the complex really maintained the grounds, etc. Very professional.
We traveled a great deal: drove to Hana, went snorkeling at Molekini, took in a luau, snorkeled and hung out loads at Big Beach (we loved that beach), Lahiana, Pa'ia, and at a fantastic rock snorkeling area past Lahiana. Beautiful. Also, couldn't get over how many people come over from B.C., including the ones that stayed in your unit...This unit was central to all activities!
Being a first visit to Maui, we absolutely loved it! We didn't have any expectations or preconceived ideas about Maui, which really helped for a long, relaxing trip.
We had a fantastic time, and a large part of that had to do with the unit. There is simply nothing like staying in a condo on your vacation, totally makes one feel at home.
Now, if only we could get some more of those delicious Mahi Mahi fish tacos...
Vancouver, BC Canada
Definately coming back!
My husband and I stayed 6 nights at the condo for our honeymoon and loved it!! The condo is recently renovated and is gorgeous. We liked the fact that the condo had the comforts of home, was well equipped with all the beach gear you need plus it's directly across the street from Kam III beach. The resort grounds are gorgeous and have 8 bbq's for guests to use - the grills get cleaned each night and are spotless!! We never had to wait to use them! Make sure to go to the cinnamon bun faire down the street underneath the Denny's - hands down best cinnamon buns!!!
We stayed at the Fairmont Kea Lani in Wailea for our last 3 nights as the condo was booked for those dates. Although the Fairmont was nice we would have preferred to stay at the condo...we will definately be back as we heard the whale sseason is amazing!!
Rob the owner of the condo was very helpful with any queries we had - he even booked our flights and car rental!! One stop shopping that is hassle free - what more can you ask for when booking a vacation?
Relaxing, peaceful home away from home!
The condo was lovely, and just as presented in the photos. I was wowed by the friendliness of the resort staff and the care given to the overall complex, which included daily landscaping, the many common barbecue sites (best way to make new friends!) being cleaned each morning, and on-site staff near the pool area, which is cleaned multiple times daily. There is also an Expedia site right by the pool, and the folks there are friendly and happy to help with event bookings, directions, or any other question or need you might have about local activities. There are four internet kiosks in the main office for use free of charge, so I was very happy not to have lugged my laptop with me. There are a plethora of restaurants around; read the guest books for good advice and hidden gems - there's something there for all ages/types of travellers.

A vacation in paradise!
It was our first trip to Maui. The unit was perfect, second floor with a balcony overlooking a beautifully landscaped common area, full kitchen, in an gated community. We were within walking distance (10 min) of the beach, stores and restaurants. It was ideally located in the midst of all the activities that we wanted - shopping, snorkeling, cruises, and sight seeing. We had a great time!
great location with all the ameneties
The condo was clean, had all the things you woudl need for a 10 day stay. Great location in Kihei, "guest book" is worth looking at for great ideas of past renters.
Condo was really nice.
The only thing that I woudl suggest is that as it was myself and my 15 yr old son, he slept on the pullout sofa. It was really uncomforatble super thin mattress, could feel the metal frame and the mattress was pretty stained :( Really not suitable for someone to sleep on it more than one night. If the owner could replace this, we would have no complaints and highly recommend to other travellers. Read more

Thank you very much for the message, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.
Thank you also for mentioning the sleeper sofa mattress...that must have been recently damaged by guests as we were not aware of the problem. We will take care of replacing it right away.
Thanks again for staying with us, we look forward to welcoming you back to Maui on your next visit.

Excellent, enjoyable stay!
We had a great stay at the Lani Kai. The location is perfect - central to all areas. We would highly recommend others to stay here! The lanai was huge, the condo was nicely renovated and the grounds were spacious, beautiful and well groomed.
all was perfect : condo, beach, pool and jaccuzi. The maui's people are very welcoming.
I was very pleased that everything was as pictured and presented honestly by the owner. The washer/dryer in unit was a plus. Also impressed with the well manicured grounds and outside grilling areas. Condo's location is convenient to everything.

Unit 7-209 Kamaole Sands - one of our best vacations!
Amazing and affordable
I have already recommended all of my friends to stay here. Superior location and fantastic accommodations. Don't waste your money staying anywhere else!
The owner is also a travel agent, whom specializes in South Pacific travel. I can assure you that he will go the extra mile to make your stay unforgettable!
Excellent Condo at Kamaole Sands
An excellent 1 bedroom condo in Kamaole Sands complex at the very south end of Kihei. The 3 Kamaole beaches are by no means the best in Kihei; we spent no time there. However, KS is minutes away from Wailea and Makena, which have an abundance of absolutely amazing beaches. There is a copy of the book Maui Revealed in the condo which gives a great description of the Maui beaches ( as well as hikes, food, etc ). The 2nd story condo itself is large and comfortable, with 2 bathrooms. The balcony doesn't have a view of the ocean, but overlooks the grassy lawn of the encircling buildings, and offers a nice calm people-watching locale to eat or read. The kitchen comes equipped with lots of pots, pans, dishware, and spices. Kamaole Sands is also close to a street that goes directly to Hwy 31, which is a fast way to get to North Kihei without hassling with traffic, as well as the rest of the island. All told, we'll be back. Read more

Aloha and thank you very much for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay!
The week prior to your arrival we had large waves on Maui that temporarily washed away the sand on our beach. Normally, visitors and locals alike regard the beaches at our resort as the very best beaches in Kihei. Here is an excerpt from mauibeachguide.com - "Kama'ole Beach Parks are truly beautiful and incredibly convenient...All three Kama'ole Beaches offer fabulous sand, expansive grassy fields, plenty of parking, bathrooms, showers, and safe, warm, clean water with lifeguards watching over you and your family."
I have to agree that the nearby beaches in Wailea and Makena are also truly amazing, some of the nicest we've seen in our worldwide travels.
Thank you again for the visit, we look forward to welcoming you back to Maui in the near future.
We stayed in the Lani Kai condo in March/2009. Had a great stay. Unit is well kept and furnished. We really enjoy building 7 and the complex is terrific.
John and Darlene Martin
We didn't want to leave!
We found Lani Kai Condo over the internet and weren't sure if what we saw on-line would translate in experience. I am pleased to say our expectations were exceeded. The Condo is beautiful and well equipped. We loved the lanai in particular. We also loved the condo complex - well maintained, great bbq's (which became a great place to meet fellow travellers), lovely pool, tennis, across the street from a lovely beach. We loved it all- quite literally didn't want to leave! The owner was also a joy to work with. An all-round perfect experience.

Paradise - Can't Wait to Return
We visit Maui frequently and I have to say that this condo was one of the best values that we've found on the island. It is prefectly situated to all of the best beaches on Maui and the grounds surrounding the condo are beautiful. My husband and I were very impressed with how clean the condo was, and the interior decor was quite luxurious. It looks like it underwent a recent remodel, and everything appeared very new and clean. We also really enjoyed the restaurants, beaches, and shops that are within walking distance. This will be our first choice for accommodations the next time we return to Maui. Nothing else we've rented can compare.

Great Maui Condo
We visit Maui frequently, and this is by far the nicest condo we've stayed in for the money. It's in a fantastic resort with beautiful grounds, centrally located to all of the best beaches on Maui. The condo itself was incredibly clean and the decor was superior. It looks like this unit was recently remodeled, and it had every amenity we could have wanted. We also really enjoyed the beaches and restaurants that were within walking distance to the condo. This will be our condo of choice whenever we return to Maui.
Amazing Condo Rental!!!
I don't normally take the time to write reviews, however, we had such a wonderful time at the Lani Kai Condo I wanted to share some thoughts with anyone thinking about booking.
Okay, so the location is fabulous! It is across from a great little beach that we walked on most every morning to a sweet little coffee shop down the street. In addition the condo is a very short distance to a variety of the south shores best beaches! Any concern I may have had about cleanliness was totally put to rest when we entered the condo. It is spotless!!! It looks like it was recently renovated and esthetically exceeded our expectations for sure. The mattress was very comfortable and probably just as important to me - the linens felt wonderful! The sound insulation between condos was also great. We never had any problems with noise. The condo has a large Lani with comfortable furniture that was fabulous to relax on in the evenings. The hot tub and pool area are also in great condition. There are some family's with children, however, as a single couple never once did we feel overwhelmed or bothered by this. It was a very fun and friendly common area. There is an outdoor grilling station which includes a few picnic tables as well. The condo does have a full kitchen so we were able to pack a picnic lunch and avoid leaving the beach mid day. We also enjoyed dinner at the local restaurants nearby. If you like an evening stroll several are within walking distance. If not there are a lot of options a very short drive away. While we spent most of our days away from the condo we actually met several great people we connected with in the evenings. It was a lot of fun exchanging stories from our days and getting tips on new places to see.
The condo, location and grounds do not disappoint! Book it and have a blast!!!
Duncan, British Columbia
A wonderful experience
We were pleased to find the condo to be exactly like the photos showed. It was beautifully renovated, clean, comfortable, and well supplied with everything we needed to make our stay pleasant. Having a washer and dryer was very much appreciated. The location is perfect and it was right across the street from Kamaole Beach 3 and a short walk to Kamaole Beach 2. The view from the large shady deck is of the beautiful pool and grounds on-site. It is a great place for families to have a relaxing vacation.
Memories for a Lifetime!
Our recent trip to Maui was truly memorable. We had traveled to other Hawaian Islands previously but this was out 1st visit to Maui. The choices for accomadations seemed endless but we ultimately decided on Lani Kai after extensive research. Both the unit and the location lived up to the high expectations that the ownwer had set for us. The condo is only a short distance from Wailea so the location is outstanding. The decor and condition of the unit certainly rival that of a condo 3 times the cost just down the street in Wailea. The unit is very upscale as it was recently remodeled. My wife loved the Kitchen and we both really enjoyed our mornings on the beautiful Lanai. The views were great. The owner was very helpful throughout the process and offered some outstanding tips on beaches and day trips!
This unit was the best value we have seen in our years of travel to the Islands!
We had a wonderful time!
We were pleasantly surprised to find that this condo had everything we needed to have a fantastic vacation in Maui. It is in a great location across from the beach, the grounds are very well kept, the condo was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. We would definately stay here again.

Relaxation becomes the norm.
From the time we first contacted the owner through to our arrival everything was handled very professionally with no problems. The unit is very clean, tastefully updated and containing all of the necessary amenities which made for a very enjoyable stay. With the beach just across the road, and an excellent on-site pool, relaxation easily becomes the norm. Will definitely stay again.

Great Accommodation/Great Location/Great Value
Beautiful, clean, modern condo located in a great location just 25 minutes
from Kahului Airport, literally across the street from a very nice beach and
conveniently located for day trips to any part of the island. The owner was
very easy to deal with, and provided all the necessary information required
well ahead of time. We've stayed at the Four Seasons Wailea previously, but
would never do that again now that we have discovered this great alternative
at less than half the price.
Beautiful condo, awesome location!
We stayed at Lani Kai in September 2009 and absolutely loved it! The condo is large, clean and filled with nice amenities. The location is ideal, with the beach within a 5 minute walk and the nearby town of Kihei has a lot of restaurants. The condo complex is quiet and nicely landscaped. The condo comes equipped with everything you need. Our only regret is we wished we found the snorkeling gear sooner! Rob was very professional and easy to deal with - this place was perfect! We would definitely return to stay here!
The Lani Kai Condo was better than expected.It is beautifully decorated and
the amenities there are great. We grilled several meals there which saved us
a lot of money. It had everything we needed there including some extras
like the beach chairs that we were able to take around town to the different
beaches. Location was great, 5 minute walk down to a beautiful family
beach park. Highly recommend this condo to anyone!

Perfect honeymoon in Maui
We spent our first week in Maui at a resort and the second week of our honeymoon at Lani Kai Condo. We will never go back to a resort again.
The condo was like our home and the location is walking distance to beaches and restaurants. It was so easy to rent from the owners and they left so much local information that it made our stay even better. We will certainly return.

Luxury in a Home away from Home
We rented this condo for 10 days in November of 2008. The condo was 100% equipped with anything you may have needed. For our outdoor beach needs they provided us with chairs, boogie boards, snorkle equipment, and most importantly a little cooler. The cooler turned out to be the most used item on our day trips around the island or for keeping our drinks cold on the beach. The inside of the condo is gorgeous. Its equipped with every kitchen supply you could ever need, which was great since we did a lot of cooking in our condo. The bed was very comfortable. They had free wireless internet available to us. It truly was a home away from home. We will return in the near future!!

Nicely upgraded unit with great pool and beach access.
We had a great time at Kamaole Sands. The unit was nicely furnished with everything we needed, including wireless internet. We loved the grassy barbeque areas and the short walks to great restaurants. Great beach access just across the street, where we could swim with the resident 150-year old giant turtle. My only complaint - I love to enjoy a cigar outside with a glass of wine in the evening and I had to walk 100 yards away and use a "smoking bench" near the parking lot. Read more
Response from Maui Vacation Condo - 04/01/2010
Thank you for your comments, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.
You bring up a good point that all travelers to Hawaii should aware of...Hawaii is a non-smoking state. "Smoking is banned inside all public buildings (including resorts) and this regulation prohibits smoking in enclosed and partially enclosed areas, within 20 feet of doorways, and requires signage upon entry to buildings."
Thank you again!
This condo is equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is in a great location for everything, including a quick walk across the street to 3 great beaches.
We were impressed with the decor and cleanliness. The overall complex is very friendly, warm and inviting.
We have stayed 2 years in a row now and wouldn't hesitate to go back for a 3rd.

Absolutely everything you could want in paradise!!
We stayed at the Lani Kai with our young son. Not only is the condo beautiful and outstandingly clean but it is located DIRECTLY across from one of the best beaches for little ones to play! Kihei is so convenient for a condo stay with a natural food grocery within walking distance and numerous restaurants nearby. Parking was no problem, and navigating from Kihei is great because you're not far from most of the popular sights.
Having a washer and dryer inside the condo is fantastic! Never a wet towel! :)
We actually don't have a negative thing to say about our trip and would highly recommend the Lani Kai to a family OR as a romantic spot for 2!! As a matter of fact we can't wait to go back!!
