About Ray and Betsy Gadbois

We have been owners since the summer of 2002. We were looking for a place to get away from the Minnesota winters and have giant yard for our 3 kids (and typically a few more) to run and play. We found it at Maui Sunset. Our kids are grown but we all have some of our best memories at Maui Sunset.

Ray and Betsy Gadbois purchased this condo in 2002

Why Ray and Betsy Gadbois chose Kihei

A friend of ours owned a unit at Maui Sunset. We stayed several times. We fell in love with the location, the grounds and the feeling of Maui. When the opportunity to buy a unit at Maui Sunset came up, we knew this was the place to be!

What makes this condo unique

The view of the ocean is breathtaking. We rarely miss an evening sitting on the beach watching the sunset.

The grounds at Maui Sunset are absolutely beautiful. We have had guests tell us they had to go pull the grass to see if it was real because it is so perfect.

Whale watching, kite-surfing are great ways to spend an afternoon and it is all available from the lanai or on the beach in front of you.

Comfortable amenities and beautiful location!!

  • 5 of 5

After staying at Ray and Betsy's in 2016, we could not wait to come back! Our stay was just as wonderful as we remembered and the newly rennovated condo made it that much better! We absolutely love staying in Kihei and this condo has a great location with lots of beaches, small shops, and restaurants within walking distance (or a very short drive). Kihei has a great, local feel to it, and is a very short drive to the resorts and golf courses at Wailea. Lahaina and west maui beaches are also very accessible from this central location and Lahaina was only a 30 minute drive for dinner. Also within a few miles are some of my favorite beaches, including big beach and secret beach. The condo itself has an amazing view of the ocean and the best view for amazing sunsets! We loved having a full kitchen and access to several grills to keep and make our own food and grill up local, fresh fish. Having a washer and dryer right in the condo were greatly appreciated as I like to travel light in a carry-on only. The condo is very clean and comfortable with new hardwood floors and paint since our last visit in 2016. Overall, I could not ask for a better Hawaiian vacation and I cannot wait to plan my next trip to Ray and Betsy's!

Awesome condo that we will stay at again!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Maui Sunset was fabulous! The grounds are beautiful with a short walk down to the beach for sunsets. The condo was comfortable, clean and homey. The updated kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, 2 bathrooms was a plus and all beds were very comfortable. (All of which is important to me when vacationing!) Views from the lanai included sunsets and whales!!! All and all, a very impressive condo that we will definitely be staying at again!

Great Ocean View

  • 3 of 5

The condo was clean, nice view of grounds and ocean, especially sunset. Bedroom very small, bed not so comfy and pillows need replacing. Every attempt to get on their internet system(wifi), was impossible, finally after two days asked the neighbour if they would allow us on their system and they were very accomodating, very nice Canadians. Departure of 10:00 am was very inconsiderate, when the owners knew we were flying out late that evening, there was no early arrivals that day. Windows leaked with our last night rainfall and I was up at 4:30 am mopping the floor on a hourly basis to save their laminate flooring, hope they made out okay with the leaks. I would recommend this place to others but negotiate departure time, this time was posted a few days before we arrived to the condo.

Owner's Response: Linda, We arrived on the island the day you left. I understand we had some intense storms and because of the way the wind and rain came most of the upper units in the A building experiences water coming in through large front windows and sliding doors. This is not common. I really appreciate that you took the time to clean up the water our floors are brand new (this is the first time we have seen them) and I am thankful they did not have water damage. We did not know the Wifi was not working so replaced it the next day. That can be so frustrating. The mattress in the bedroom is new and the trampoline mattress on the pullout couch is also new. Mattresses seem to all be based on personal preference. We replace all the pillows while we are here each year. So we now have new pillows. Re: the check out time, I realize this can be inconvenient for travelers, however our cleaning company has many units to clean so the next guests can get in on time. I don't have the ability to change that but always encourage people to call the number on your check in information and talk with them directly. They do try hard to work to accommodate whenever they can. I am going to add the check in and check out time to our website so that people will know prior to receiving the check in information. Please come back again Thank you Ray and Betsy

Grounds are great. Condo disappointing.

  • 2 of 5

The grounds are as described- grass expansive and manicured, the pool is on the small side but fine, great tennis courts and direct beach access. The condo was in disrepair- the living room vertical blinds had fallen off and were lying on the floor so the living area could not be darkened for the children sleeping there, the sink in the bedroom didn’t drain so could not be used, and the toilet leaked. The pullout couch was so uncomfortable my 9 year old preferred to sleep on the floor. There were only 3 threadbare beach towels. And we did contact the owner who said they would have someone come to fix the blinds and sink and they never did. Overall- this is a budget rental. Enjoy the commons and stay out of the room. Disappointing overall.

Owner's Response: Susannah, I am so sorry you were disappointed in your stay at our condo. We live in Minnesota an are here twice a year to do projects and updates. We have to rely on our housekeeping and maintenance companies to take good care of our condo. To all potential guests this phone number is provided to you on the check in information and we encourage you to call it if you find our condo in any sort of disrepair or feel you do not have what you need. We are glad you were able to enjoy the lovely grounds at Maui Sunset. Ray and Betsy Gadbois

Great Time in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Maui Sunset was perfect for me and my two teenage kids. The condo was exactly what we needed - comfortable, well equipped, nicely maintained and just a short drive to everything in Kihei. We would definitely come back and stay in the same unit, and if that was not available, another at Maui Sunset with similar amenities.

We were aiming for a place to stay that was less "resort-y" (like Kaanapali) and had a little more local flavor. Maui Sunset is exactly this. The grounds between the pool and ocean are shared by guests and locals alike and there's always something going on - from weddings to dog walking groups to locals surf fishing or kite-boarding. Every evening folks seat themselves along the small grassy bluff at the shoreline to watch the sunset. Can't beat the view or the relaxed vibe! Loved it and hope to return soon!
