We booked our honeymoon through expedia to stay at the CRH Island Sands Condos in September. Because we came in on a Sunday, there was no one to check us in and the second we walked into our condo we were hit with an overwhelming stench of urine, there was mold on the walls and covering picture frames, ants crawling...

Thank you for your review of the Island Sands room you stayed in. We are sorry to hear that it did not meet your standards. Our notes on your reservation show that you just wanted to leave Island Sands, but we didn’t hear about your detailed complaints until reading this review. We wish we could have heard about these while... More

I had the pleasure of staying in this sweet little condo for several months up until April of this spring, and I hope to return one day! The property owners are without a doubt some of the nicest people on the Island, and work right there in the harbor so they are always available if there is ever an issue.... More

Six floored condo building located on beautiful Maalaea Bay, southern Maui. We stayed in a nice first floor, end unit, 2 bedroom, 2 bath (Rent by Owner) with laundry, open kitchen, dinette, living area, and patio. With both doors open there was a nice ocean breeze through the updated unit. The location was great for morning walks on the beach,... More

This condo (#209) was perfect in every way. We loved the location right on the water and the quietness of the area yet close to 3 great restaurants and a large beach. The pool was always so clean and warm and lounge chairs always available. We had a one bedroom with king size bed which was great. The kitchen was... More

First let me say that the location is fabulous if you have been to Maui many times and want a vacation as opposed to exploration and entertainment. I just loved the location and didn't even mind the walk to a minuscule beach to gather sea glass. That said, obviously every reviewer brings their own standards to a review and Unit... More

Thank you for your review of the oceanfront Island Sands Resort. Our vacation rental company manages many condos at this property, but we unfortunately do not manage condo 106, which you reference. I am sorry to hear that you experienced ants in your condo. Every condo at the Island Sands is sprayed every three months for bugs, and if any... More

We had a great stay at the island sands for our first hawaiian vacation. The room had all the appliances for a week long stay, which helped us save money by eating in for most meals. The only beef I have is that the bedroom did not have AC so I actually slept a few nights on the couch since... More

Pros- Great location, very nice condo, well equipped- has every thing and anything you would need during the vacation! Cons- Badly needs some drapes in the living room to control the furnace like feeling and save on electricity in turn!! The only AC in the living room, doesnt help :(

We stayed recently (last week), and thanks to CRH management for being hospitable, courteous, and considerate in giving us an awesome room with a view (612). Amazing, we could not ask for more. Condo was clean and the views breathtaking! Waking up every morning to a picturisque ocean view exceeded my dreams. The condo comes stocked with all your basic... More

Thank you for your review of Island Sands and our management company. I am glad the condo and service met all your expectations.

We spent 9 nights at the Island Sands Resort and thought it was great. Very clean with a nice heated pool. Free donuts on Friday mornings! We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool and the ocean. There isn't much of a beach in front of the resort but it is only a short walk away. Just hit Costco... More

Thank you for your review of the Island Sands. I am not sure if you stayed in one of the vacation condos our company manages, but I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the heated pool, ocean views, and BBQ grills.
