Enjoy views of Molokai and Lanai in one of nicest remodeled corner units in the Sands of Kahana. This air conditioned 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with two lanais is one of the most spacious waterfront units in Maui. From the front Lanai you’re so close to the ocean that you can toss a lei and watch it gently float to the beach. On the side lanai off the second bedroom, you can watch the surfers at S Turn. And, don’t forget to enjoy the sunsets and the whales when they visit during the winter.When you enter the unit you are welcomed by the spectacular ocean view. The large kitchen has beautiful granite counters and modern appliances. The cabinets are a rich cherry wood. Draw the ice for your drinks directly from the refrigerator. You can create Mai Tais or blend a Pina Colada. Although most visitors enjoy the Maui cuisine of the West Side restaurants, you have the choice of using the gourmet kitchen or simply going down to the beach to use one of the barbeques.The dining area and the living room share the same ocean views as the front lanai. The furnishings are elegant Hawaiian style. Whether for casual enjoyment or to entertain friends or family, these central living spaces are very comfortable. The artwork complements the matching couch and love seat as well as the chairs and tables. There is a desk behind the love seat so that you can use your computer while you glance up to see a sail boat pass by your window. The dining table is a large thick glass circle with matching chairs to accommodate your family or guests.The master bedroom has a king size bed. Next to this bedroom is a large master bathroom with a granite counter and two sinks. The cabinets are the same rich cherry wood found in the kitchen. The lighting is excellent and the closets are large. There is a shower with an adjustable shower head should you desire the massaging effect of the pulsating water. In addition you will find a soaking tub. A unique aspect is a window with an ocean view so that you can shower or soak while looking at the ocean or Lanai. The second bedroom has two queen size beds and direct access to its own lanai. Next to this bedroom is a good sized bathroom with a granite counter, two sinks and excellent lighting. The cabinets are also the same cherry wood. The shower has a floor to ceiling window so that you can enjoy views of the ocean and Lanai while you shower . Like the master bathroom shower, it also has an adjustable shower head. Please understand that if want to close off the views which the windows provide in both bathrooms as you bathe, it is your choice.There are three televisions. One in the living room and one in each of the bedrooms. Of course, you may prefer to read a book, but you always have the option to watch a DVD or check the news on the mainland.
Additional amenities include: workout room, washer/dryer, restaurant, lanai, tennis, golf course nearby, free dsl internet, gas bbq's....Read more

The room itself is A/C and incredible; however, the grounds are outdated, and dirty. Parking is atrocious. People often take two spaces and the management could care less. When I complained to the manager that I had to walk my children in from the street at night, she told me she would place a friendly note on the cars asking them not to take up two spaces. She did not want to call them and have them move their cars, because she didn't want to inconvenience them.

The view from this condo can't be beat! Great views from both bedrooms and the living room to keep everyone happy! The layout is comfortable, with 2 full baths and a surprisingly large and well-appointed kitchen, plenty of closet space and a washer/dryer. During our stay the sliding doors to close the master BR wouldn't close, so make sure they are fixed...otherwise the MBR offers no privacy. The one down-side...the mattresses are terribly soft. If you like a firm mattress, you will not get a good noght's sleep on these beds. This was true of all the beds, even the twin beds in the second BR. Go for the view, but beware the mattresses,
The beach is good...not a good snorkel spot, and not a huge beach, but it was never crowded. There are some turtles that seem to like that spot, and we could see them from the beach, and one even came up to catch some sun about 6 feet away from some human sun-bathers.
We only used the restaurant once, and weren't impressed. No great restaurants nearby, so expect to drive to Ka'anapali (which is not far) for a really good meal.
In summary, would we stay here again? Not until they change the mattresses, because even though you're on vacation, you still need a good noght's sleep.

This 2 bedroom condo was nicely furnished, and in a great location. I used both balconies, since the sun was in different locations throughout the day. The beds were comfortable, and I liked the view from the shower and bath tub! For groceries, use the Napili grocery store, which we liked better than the Safeway in Kaanapali. Great snorkeling at the Kapalua resort beach! The beach at the Sands of Kahana was good for swimming.

This condo is everything you could want plus more. Fabulous ocean front, two lanais, two huge bathrooms and two huge bedrooms. Gigantic kitchen. Very comfortable living room. It's so large, the first day in this place we kept getting lost! haha It's pricey for one family or couple, but if you're sharing with another couple, what a deal! The air conditioning is very touchy; it only works if every window and door is tightly closed. Once we figured that out it worked great. Brad, the concierge, was very helpful. He booked three activities for us; we enjoyed them all.

We loved this two bedroom condo which is totally updated and comfortable and best of all clean!!! It has everything we needed and plus air conditioning which was nice with the humid and warm days. The furnishings were nice and comfortable and the views from all area's were fantastic! There is nothing negative I would say about this home--- other than although the place was totally clean and spotless the carpets could have used a cleaning as there were some stains here and there. We loved our accomodations and made sure we made note of this in condo number so that we can be sure to ask for this home on our next visit to Maui.
