About Karen and Carl Claras
Twenty years ago Carl came to Maui for two weeks of Windsurfing, Windsurfing and more Windsurfing. Karen came to Maui twenty years ago for vacation and stayed at Kamaole Sands in a ground floor unit in building 7. Karen fell in love with Kamaole Sands. Carl was in love with Windsurfing. The two of them were both happily single. When it was time to go home, Carl arrived at the Kahului Airport and decided to take an earlier stand-by flight over to Oahu to catch his connecting flight home to the mainland. Karen arrived at the Kahului Airport for her return trip home to the mainland that same day - relaxed and looking forward to an easy day of travel. She arrived at the gate for the flight to Oahu way ahead of time so she kicked off her shoes and settled in with a good book. An announcement for an available seat on a flight leaving for Oahu "right now" was made. It was announced 3 or 4 more times before the last and final "one seat left - plane door is closing." Karen says she has no idea why she decided at the very last second to get on that flight... only that it changed her life. She sat in the only seat available - the middle seat in the very last row. Carl was seated next to the window.
Karen and Carl Claras purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Karen and Carl Claras chose Kihei
Karen fell in love with Kamaole Sands the first time she stayed at Kamaole Sands over 20 years ago. She met Carl who loved Windsurfing. Karen and Carl fell in love. Soon thereafter they came to Kamaole Sands together and felt the love. They are very grateful to have such a beautiful space here on Maui and want to ensure that others traveling to Maui that stay in their home walk through the front door and say... "wow... this is incredible, we love it!"

what a lovely place !
The property is nicer than the photos allow. Location is superb, being directly across the street from a popular beach. All sorts of beach paraphernalia at this condo ( so you don't have to rent separately ) . The condo is right next to the car parking area, and next to the pool / hot tub. on the ground floor Kitchen is very well equipped. Easy communication with owners. Generous in letting us arrive a bit earlier and leave a bit later. made our week in Kihei just perfect.
Amazing Family Vacation
We loved this condo! We’ve been to Maui a few times and this was by far our favourite vacation. Thank you to Carl and Karen for opening your home to us and being so accommodating. Beautifully updated and it had everything we needed. There was lots of space for all of us! Also - being 30 steps from the pool was super convenient with two young children (ages 4 and 2). There’s a huge bin of beach toys which our kids took full advantage of and the boogie boards got lots of use as well.
Kamaole Sands has the most perfect location in all of Kihei! Central to plenty of amazing beaches and all the amenities (groceries etc.) you could need.
We hope to come back someday, thank you so much!!
Fun times in paradise
Great space inside and out. Doesn’t get any better than this and the location is super convenient to just everything you’d want to do or see
Very clean, very conveniently located condo! We really enjoyed our stay here.
Clean, Spacious and Great for families - Would definitely stay here again
We stayed here in Feb with 3 adults, one 2 year old and a 4 month old. It was Perfect for our family. It was clean, well maintained and nicely updated. The condo had plenty of space, all 3 bedrooms were a good size (easily fit a pack n play), kitchen and common area were also spacious. The ground floor unit was perfect for toddlers and strollers.
The location of Kamaole Sands is right across the street from the beach (about a 5 minute walk with a toddler) and Kamaole Beach 3 was about a 15 minute walk. The condo is also within 30 steps of the pool.
The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed (only missing a teapot). Great selection of beach toys, towels, boogie boards, chairs and umbrellas.
Owners were easy to communicate with and very quick to respond.
Would highly recommend this condo/resort. Hopefully we will be staying here again in the future.
Great condo for a family
We stayed here in January 2019 for 11 days. This newly renovated condo was prefect for our needs We are a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 2.5, 5, & 6.5 years. There was somewhere for everyone to sleep, tvs access in every room (even Dora dvd's for my Dora loving kid), and plenty of room so you didn't feel crowded. Both of the remodeled bathrooms are beautiful. There was just a couple of times that I wished I had a bathtub. The close proximity to the pool was great so we could see if it was too busy to head down. The one downfall with that is the pool is open until 10pm so some nights can be noisy. The beach is just across the street and everything that you need to enjoy it is supplied. There is a big outdoor bench filled with beach-toys, my kids loved it. The outdoor shower is just by the pool gate so you can rinse off after the beach. Being on ground floor also has a benefit that kids can play on the grass and you can watch them .
I would stay in this condo again, Karen and Carl were great to work with and help make your vacation memorable right from the start.
