  • Wish we had stayed longer!

    "We rent through vrbo constantly, and THIS CONDO ranks as one of the best we've ever stayed in. We wish we had stayed longer; hopefully we will return one day. PROS: 1. The kitchen! Diane has done a fabulous job stocking the kitchen with everything you could ever need. Often times this is not the case with rentals (cue the flimsy knives and cheap pots and pans). I am a foodie and found everything I needed and then some in her kitchen. She has plenty of dishware, cooking utensils, prep bowls, pyrex dishes, and other gadgets. There is also a nice supply of spices and other odds and ends in the cabinet above the stove. I needed honey for a recipe and a little canola oil and miraculously found it in the cabinet! I paid it forward by leaving some unopened items in the same cabinet. My husband loved one of their travel coffee mugs so much that he bought one online! Only suggestion would be to add a nice chopping knife (the butcher block lacked one). 2. The location! I know many people prefer to stay up in Lahaina, but I disagree. Yes, the water is a bit bluer up there but I really loved Kihei! It's close to the airport (15-20 mins), a 20 minute drive ti Iao needle, and a 10 minute drive to all the activities you'd ever want (like surfing) and yummy restaurants in the downtown Kihei area (must go to the Kihei for breakfast!). The complex is located on the north end of Kihei so the beach isn't crowded at all. In fact, on some days we were the only ones out there. A farmer's market, ABC store, bakery, and perfectly shaved ice are a short walk on the beach away! 3. The breezes! I loved the tradewinds in the afternoon. It was so nice to sit out on the lanai in the evening. It wasn't hot at all. Many evenings entailed my husband grilling downstairs and us eating on the lanai watching the sun fade. Sometimes it can get QUITE breezy, but we felt sheltered on the lanai. We saw multiple rainbows from the lanai, btw. The condo's AC works wonders. 4. The supplies!! This condo has so many supplies beyond the kitchen. There are plenty of towels- bath and beach. We found toys, beach mats, coolers and chairs. They have VERY NICE Tommy Bahama chairs. Yep, I bought some too! **As a side note, we rented the next door condo, too (perfect for grandparents). Diane's unit was way better! One additional suggestion- the King bed is HEAVEN! But the pull out couch not so much. You can feel the bars digging into your back. A memory foam topper would do wonders. THANKS, DIANE!"

  • Perfect Vacation Memories!

    "Dear Doug and Starla, We have been a guest in your condo many times and we just wanted to say thank you again. We felt so fortunate to find such a wonderful place to stay and we have returned ever since. Your condo now brings memories of many perfect vacations. We love the spectacular view and listening to the sound of the ocean. The updates you continue to make to your condo have made our stays very special. Your unit has always been comfortable, clean, and well appointed. Sugar Beach Resort has so much to offer. We love the swimming pool, hot tub, beach, and location. We look forward to making our next trip. Thank you again."

  • Great!

    "Had a great stay in this condo. The large lanai is wonderful and has a great view. The trade winds keep the unit nice and cool, never needed the A/C. Be sure to snorkel across the street and see the turtles!"

  • Incredible Condo

    "We have rented this condo for four stays now on Maui. (2010,2012,2013 and 2014) The condo is very well appointed, the location is amazing and the owners take care and attention to maintain and keep their unit exceptionally well maintained. Kim is responsive to all inquires and quickly takes care of what ever might be required. The beds are comfortable, TV's top of the line and the views are amazing! The AC is a main room AC and works very well on warmer days. There are stand up fans that move the cool air throughout the condo. Most days AC is not required being so close the ocean but for those times it is needed it is wonderful. We appreciate that there is not an AC timer as many units at Kamaole Sands have a timer which is annoying if you are trying to keep cool at night while sleeping. We are highly fussy renters who appreciate cleanliness, modern amenities, comfort and functionality. We would highly recommend this condo for your Maui vacation."

Keep an eye out, you just might see a humpback whale while you're lounging. There's birdwatching and hiking spots for nature lovers as well.
