Can't believe what just happened this morning. Get to the office, open my email and find a confirmation for a 2 BR unit at Sands of Kahana in Maui for winter break 2012! Check in is 12/21/12. We put in our request the end of October, and gave up 3 BR Grande Vista week 35 to get it. Only 6 weeks!!! YAY

We LOVE our timeshares!!!

All the best,

I think you'll enjoy your stay there. It isn't the fanciest place I've ever stayed at, but is is nice layout and very family friendly resort with a nice on-site restaurant reasonably priced. We were lucky enough too have an oceanfront oceanview when we stayed there, and it was great. Used the grills to cook some steaks too. Overall a great stay for 5 of us.
