This is a beachfront upgraded unit--no big walled—Sugar Beach gem, with true Hawaiian flavor. The architecturally designed condo unit features maple cabinets, granite counters, beautiful Italian floor tiles, ambiance lighting, island-style woodwork, built-in casework in the traditional Hawaiian plantation style and a comforting small pebble tile shower. See the 'Live Aloha Suite' videos on Youtube for a tour of this tastefully built condominium.
Cast open the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors and take in Maui at it’s best. The soothing ocean waves and marvelous sunrises and sunsets remind you that you are in a very special place. Your Hawaiian experience is enhanced by the tropical décor offset by the palm trees’ gentle sway from the trade winds. This is a prime location condominium unit. It does not have the extended lanai wall, as do so many SBR condos. No extended wall means the unobstructed view is beautiful (see the video). The classically beautiful floor tile extends from the living area through the lanai for the feeling of an expanded living area. You are truly on the beach on Maui with all of the sights and smells you expect. Sit on your 4th floor private lanai and watch the Hawaiian lifestyle unfold before you. Enjoy the outrigger club races, snorkelers, beach walkers, swimmers, kite boarders, stand up paddlers and during the season, breaching whales and sea turtles. Or, sit in the living room to enjoy the same scene! This unit is truly “front and center”, yet amazingly private. One feels as if in a beach house without neighbors, owing in part to the hypnotic waves, tranquil setting and beautiful interiors.
Sugar Beach Resort is a "green minded" community. A significant portion of our electrical is generated from rooftop solar panels. Our beautiful grounds are watered from an on-site well to conserve the precious water. Our pools are heated by solar thermal energy. You might not notice the differences, but they are there because we love the wonder of natural Hawaii and strive to keep it that way!
Kihei is known for enjoying Maui’s better weather. Sugar Beach Resort (SBR) is located north of Kihei Town for that “get away from it all” feeling. Yet, it is close enough to Kihei and Wailea to sample their fares—entertainment and restaurants. West Maui with Lahaina is a picturesque, scenic, twenty-minute drive away. Neighboring Kealia Pond is a national refuge, which exhibits native flora and fauna. SBR is situated in a unique and rare setting.
THE LIVE ALOHA SUITE is tastefully designed and appointed, fresh, clean and lovingly cared for by the owners. The island artwork is authentic and the unit has more than sufficient necessities. Come stay in the best apartment in Sugar Beach Resort, on the loveliest and longest sandy beach on Maui. Your stay will be memorable. (managed on island by Maui Condo & Home, LLC)

About Douglas Sage
Doug and Starla Sage live in Edmonds Wa. For a time, in our early twenties, we lived on Maui and fell in love with the place. Doug owns a construction management firm in Seattle and Starla is retired due to a successful double lung transplant in 2011. We love to travel, and spend time in Pismo Beach, CA, La Conner and the San Juan Islands, WA, as well as Sugar Beach. We are looking forward to Doug's retirement when we can spend more time in our lovely Maui condo. In the meantime, I volunteer at the UW Lung Transplant Center helping others cope with transplant issues. I also volunteer at my local food bank, and when on Maui, at a homeless soup kitchen, Hale Kau Kau. It is great to get to know the locals through my volunteering. We have one grown son who has written and produced songs for Grammy winning recording artist, Macklemore. Life is Good and we are very thankful!
Douglas Sage purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Douglas Sage chose Kihei
We spent a lot of time deciding where to buy on Maui. We love West Maui, but felt it had become too crowded. South Maui, and specifically north Kihei, is much more relaxed. We love to walk and swim and have access to the many Maui amenities. Sugar Beach is 5 miles long, a tranquil swimming beach and centrally located. It met all our needs. Sugar Beach has air conditioning in the units, whereas most places do not. It is nice to have that option, at times it can get pretty hot. I also liked that it has a hot tub and lovely grounds. Many guests return year after year. So much to do, so little time. You have to come back!
What makes this Condo unique
Doug wanted to upgrade the condo, and while I was waiting for my transplant, he hired a well known Seattle architect to add something special to the place. I was a bit worried as I didn't have the energy to give any input. So, when I saw it after the remodel, I was blown away! Isn't it nice to walk into something you didn't expect and be thrilled?! We're sure you'll be thrilled too!

Perfect Maui Beachfront!
We had a great time in Maui. Your condo was perfect for us. Beach front or poolside whatever your choice. All the conveniences in the condo you could want or need and more. Convenient to many areas of interest. Walk, drive, shop, enjoy!! Home sweet home!! We loved it and would definitely choose this location again.
A beautiful luxury condo right on the water!
We loved the beautifully appointed condo! We sat out on the Lana’i every morning with coffee literally on the beachfront, and the sunsets... amazing! The bed was so comfy and the kitchen had new appliances and lovely granite countertops — just perfect. It is centrally located to all of Maui with restaurants and shops nearby. The complex also has a nice pool and hot tub. But our favorite was the incredible snorkeling in the ocean right in front of the condo! Thanks for our lovely vacation!
A lovely one bedroom condo on the 4th floor with waterfront. Perfect for one couple. Everything is thoughtfully provided and very clean. We would recommend this unit to friends.
Note: Too small for entertaining. perfect for two.
This condo is just delightful!! Wonderful view from the lanai looking out at the ocean both directions. We stayed for two weeks and were so comfortable and the updated decor is so lovely. I just cannot say enough how much we loved this location in every way! Being able to enjoy the view and then go right out front and walk the long sandy beach.
Wonderful place. Thank you. Linda
Everything about this condo reminds you that you're in Hawaii, in a beautiful way. We will definitely return!
Awesome - We will definitely return to this lovely unit.
If possible, I would give this property a higher rating than five stars. It has been beautifully remodeled and is well equipped with chairs, beach towels, kitchen items, etc.
My husband and I were in awe from the moment we walked in and saw the beautiful view of the ocean. This unit is truly ocean front, countless hours were spent sitting on the lanai listening to the ocean and watching the waves crashing on the beach. Every night we were able to have a front row seat to watch the sunset.
I was also fortunate to have a fabulous massage at Massage Maui which is on site at this resort.
We are already planning ahead to our next stay here. Thank you Doug and Starla for sharing your island home with us.
