We stayed in unit A6 and had a great time in Maui. The biggest pro of the condo complex was the great beach. It was perfect for for swimming and walking. Our unit was clean, spacious VERY well stocked with kitchen supplies, boogie boards and towels. The owner, Elen, was extremely helpful and responsive to questions about the island. We enjoyed that the condo was centrally located, so we could easily drive to a variety of beaches and mountains. It was perfect for touring the island.
We traveled with our 3-month old son. While the condo was very family friendly, it was an older crowd the week we visited. The biggest con was the very busy road in front that did not allow for good stroller walking options.
Overall, the kihei sands was a great value and wonderful beach location. If you want to walk to bars or restaurants, I would look further south in Kihei. If you want a quiet beach, this is perfect! I recommend A6, because of the friendly owner and well stocked kitchen. It does not have a direct beach view.
Owner of A6 is the most helpful person we have ever rented from - she was super helpful and answered all of our questions very quickly.
The unit was really clean.
Lovely, walkable beach that is shielded from the wind and sandy to swim
Central location that is easy to drive anywhere on the island
Too far to walk to the bars, restaurants and activities of S. Kihei
Right on a main highway, so not a good place to walk strollers
The pool is small and cold
Older crowd of guests. They were very friendly and loved seeing our young son, but it was definitely not a youthful complex
The condo was loud a few nights - we did not complain, but others did and the the property managers were very nice and handled the situation quickly
