Did you know Hawaii islands are the most isolated major groups of islands on Earth being 2,400 miles from the nearest continent and, the best part is, they are still growing? What? Yes cuz new Hawaii islands have been forming slowly & constantly as the Pacific plate moves? How cool so we can keep …
Sierragirl stayed here on Nov 1, 2009 during their trip titled: Adventures in the South Pacific.
We had the best time ever in Maui, can't wait to go back to any of the islands!
... bratwursts! So it was off to the last place anybody wants to visit while on vacation - the walk-in clinic! Luckily it was only a short stroll away, and even luckier, I was covered with travel insurance. I've been buying it for nearly a decade without ever receiving any benefits, but it probably paid for itself with just one visit today.
Health care is never cheap in a First World country, especially not when traveling ...
... the biggest I've ever seen! Children rode the waves like toboggans sliding them along the white surf. Dudes body surfed and paddle boarded and the locals surfed the waves like gymnasts, the inner tubes appearing to swallow them up but a moment later they bob up unscathed and poised! The locals have grown up with this sea, they know how to read it, but for the uninitiated these 4-6 foot waves can drill a man's body into the sand, dislocating shoulders and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sands of Kahana Lahaina
Sands of Kahana...Thanks
We had the whole family af 13 in 2, 3 bedroom condos. It was an excellent location to stay and we had a wonderful time. The kids loved the koi pond and pool, and the adults loved the barbeques, the size of the condos, and the beautiful sunsets. We will be back many times for sure. The staff was helpfull and met our every need. It was close to resturants and shopping, and had incredible beaches.
Not what I expected!
Went to the Sands of Kahana during New Years. Grounds are not that big and the beach is rocky once you step into the water. Very boring for teenagers because there is nothing to do at this hotel. We stayed in the penthouse suite on the top floor and the room was big and had a nice view, but it was not very clean and many things in the condo were broken. THe pool is small and spa even smaller (which was always dirty). The food at the resturant down stair was satisfactory and a little pricy. Overall I just felt that the grounds were not up to par and there was not anything to do at the condo during the day.
We had a GREAT place family vacation at Sands of Kahana. It had all the amenities that we and our 11 year and our 16 year olds wanted--pool, beach, volley ball, tennis and more. Our condo was exactly what we had hoped for--oceanfront, two bedrooms, plenty of space, a washer and dryer, beach towels, chair, and mats--plus we had front row seats on our lanai to beautiful sunsets and rainbows. Tim from Sullivan Properties was wonderful to work with and made reservations for us that saved us a lot of time.
Best time ever
During our first visit to Maui in 2000, my wife and I bought a 2 bedroom. We last visited in January 2004 and had a blast. S O K was very helpful in everything we wanted to do as well as anything we needed. We took five other people with us and they didn't want to leave. All in all it was a blast, and we look to staying at S O K for many many years to come.
Unbelievable - Incredible - Fantastic, You'll never want to leave!!!!
This place is incredible!!!! I have never stayed at at resort before, where suites are bigger than my house. The staff here really seems to go out of their way to make your stay as memorable as possible, Altough these units are not Air Conditioned, the gentle tradwinds, and numerous ceiling fans not only keep you nice and cool, but also provide a tropical feel. Unit #461 is my favorite so far, it's split level with one bedroom downstairs, and one bedroom (loft style) upstairs, the kitchens are breath takingly large. Open flowing, and spacious. My dream is to one day live here year round. P.S. - Jay at the Front Desk, has got to be the friendliest Hotel clerk I've ever met
First time in Hawaii, had a great vacation with our two kids. The resort is well kept and had everything we needed. The room was spacious 2-bedroom ocean front that had not only well-stuffed kitchen, but even snorkeling and beach equipment. The beach is pretty good. Conveniently located in close proximity to other great beaches. Rented from Sullivan.
We stayed in this ocean front condo complex in February 2003. The 5 of us (2 married couples and 1 single) rented a 3-bdrm/3-ba penthouse unit (SK392) that had to have been at least 1400 sq ft! This unit was phenomenal and exceeded my expectations. This particular condo unit definitely had class! (They aren't all as updated and nice as this one... Excellent decorating job!)I loved the darker colored hardwood floors (not that parquet stuff either!), the 3 large bathrooms in floor-to-ceiling marble, the tons of closet space for each room (the master bedroom walk-in alone was at least 6' x 7'!) and the well-equipped kitchen (which was huge as well!) The tapestries on the wall and other "objects d'art" were beautiful as well...Our condo unit was bright and airy, decorated mostly in ocean blues and white (white leather sofa, neutral colored wicker lounge chairs with ottomans, blue dining room chairs and glass table (main floor bedroom was done in ocean blue and bedframe was wicker as well!). Patio furniture was done in ocean blue as well. The furniture was definitely unique but with that "island flair". None of this usual taffy seafoam green or pepto-bismol pink color scheme! (we peeked into the condo next door while it was being cleaned -- it had exactly that decor... with seafoam green dirty-looking carpets... and that parquet stuff... yikes...)The place was big enough with plenty to do that 5 people didn't get in each other's way for 7 days. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom (2 bath/shower combinations and 1 shower only). The master bedroom was upstairs in a completely enclosed "loft" (there is a big window for one wall -- most are open to below -- looking down over the living room and through the skylights to the ocean). The master bath had a huge soaking tub that could fit two people. It had double sinks as well.This particular unit is an ocean front (facing towards Lahaina direction). We could watch the whales playing in the ocean from our balcony! There is another h a "peak-a-boo" view of the ocean and a sweeping view of Iao peak and surrounding countryside.The grounds of this complex are beautiful. It's conveniently located to several nice restaurants (and a McDonalds) and shopping. Major grocery stores are 5 minutes away in either direction from condo. Sullivan Properties is across the street and offered guests discount activity planning.We did hear a man complaining (he was extremely angry with staff members who pretty much said there wasn't much they could do...) when we checked in that his "oceanfront" room was NOT available as promised (he was a timeshare owner... maybe this is only a problem for timeshare???) Our unit was there no problem...The condo's Terrace Restaurant (open-air next to the pool area) offers many selections and the food and service was good as well. We ate there for breakfast and dinner and both times were great.The only problems we did have was the penthouse is on the 9th floor, which can be a problem if the elevator breaks down (it does...). We had an elderly woman in our party (in her 70s) with a foot injury who had to carefully climb down the stairs when we were leaving for an outing. Luckily the elevators were up and running when we came back later that evening! Also, there isn't much parking next to the entrance to elevator to your building. By evening, most spots were gone and you had to park a few more steps away (not far though...)I'd give this particular unit 5 stars easily!
WOW! what a stay we had at SOK. I will remember the trip for ever thank you greg and cheryl.
My wife and I have been to SOK twice since purchasing a one bedroom unit in 2000 and thoroughly enjoyed both visits. On our last trip some friends joined us, but decided to stay at one of the hotel style resorts down the road. They were complaining how uncomforatable it was because one always wanted the A/C on due to the interior hallway design that didn't allow for any airflow through the unit, while the other was too cold from the A/C.
