About April

We live on an island in the Puget Sound, and so we feel right at home in Maui's island setting. The peaceful pace and friendly atmosphere really appeal to us. For many years we had been staying at Sugar Beach Resort and are thrilled to own a condo there. Our goal is to make it your favorite home away from home.

April purchased this condo in 2008

Why April chose Kihei

You just can't find a place closer to the water than a Sugar Beach oceanfront unit. The view is unparalleled and you have front row seating for whale watching much of the year, and turtles all year.

What makes this condo unique

Sugar Beach is nearly 6 miles of white sand, and wonderful for walking, jogging or beachcombing. The north end is never crowded, so you really feel like you have your own piece of paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guestbook in the condo:

"What a wonderful condo! We loved your care & attention to detail. Incredible sunsets, unforgettable whale watching from the lanai, wonderful beach doesn't get much better.

Thank you for your accurate description & it was even better than described."

Thank you-thank you,

John & Eileen

What an amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

Where do we begin. We have been to a few other VRBO places that were not like the pictures. This is what you see and more. The place has everything you need. The bed is comfortable and the shower has pressure that is awesome. Having the washer and dryer lets you pack lighter. The central location allows you to hit multiple locations in a day. Safeway and Costco are close. The BBQ facilities are great. The beach and pool rock. Remember their are grocery carts available to unload your groceries and bags when you get there (base of the stairwell). April is a great owner. She is communicating with you right away if you have questions (as stupid as we had). Thanks guys for a great place

An absolute pleasure

  • 5 of 5

During our Hawaiian roundtrip, we had the absolute pleasure of staying in the apartment for four nights and what a delight it was.

When arriving we had a chat with one of the other guests, and when we mentioned ‘our’ apartment was in the Mill building, we were told that ‘ohh that’s the good spot’ - and right she was.

Super nice apartment, with everything your hearts desire and where one can see, that the owner April, really cares for the apartment and makes sure that everythings taken good care of.

The bed is, as others have mentioned, placed on a platform, so it’s a vit high, which also made us have a laugh as my wife’s not that tall (but there’s a small chair so don’t worry).

There’s plenty of towels/linen and extra pillows and a washer and dryer and

the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make breakfast etc.

The livingroom is also nice stacked with books/boardgames etc. if one has to stay in due to the weather and when it’s time to go to the beach/pool, there’s plenty of beach toys and a cooler - niiice.

And not forgetting the lanai - it is sooo nice. Most nights we sat there and watched the sunset and also late at night just to hear the waves down from the beach right smack outside ‘our’ windows. Really really nice.

The owner April was on top of everything and almost immediately answered all questions (also the stupid ones we had ) and could be reached at any time if required.

If your next vacation rakes you to Maui and Kihei, we can only recommned the condo for you next and we will most certainly return if we are in the area again. Thanks April, it was an absolute pleasure.

Sweet little condo!

  • 5 of 5

We so loved our stay in this condo. Two things are most important to us in travel accommodations. 1) clean 2) hot water and good shower pressure. This little condo we could tell had been lovingly cared for. The location was great as the beach area is quiet. It’s centrally located so you could drive north or south.

You will have everything you need in the kitchen. There are plenty of towels and beddings and all are very good quality. Let’s talk about the bed. It was sooooo awesome! For starters, it’s on a platform that’s very high and we had lots of fun laughing while trying to hop up on it (don’t worry there is a little stool if you need it but that takes away all the fun). It’s so comfortable that I seriously wish mine was like that. Pillows are nice and fluffy.

Shower water pressure was strong and you’ll love that after being at the beach all day. Each morning I walked about a half mile down the beach to the bakery for fresh goods and coffee. The sunrise and sunset view from the balcony is perfect. The pool was nice and water warm.

The owner emailed us after arrival to make sure everything was ok. Next time we come to Maui we’d love to stay here again.

Location, great! Otherwise...

  • 3 of 5

Ocean front was wonderful. Having ceiling fan and sun shades on lanai was great, especially in the summer. Inside the unit things weren't bad, but not great. Dirty dishes in the cupboard, outlets that didn't work, area rug on top of carpet in living room that had a major raised crease, tended to roll up and couldn't be straightened, caused numerous stumbles and trips during the stay. A safety hazard that needs to be dealt with. Lots of drawer space in bedroom, unfortunately almost all were filled with linens. By moving things around we were able to clear two useable drawers for our clothes. Suitcases stored in living room, no room anywhere else. Attention to detail seemed to be lacking. I probably would not choose to stay there again. However, as I am an older adult, I may be too picky.

Owner's Response: After seeing this review, I contacted the guest and she made 3 clarifications: 1) Her iPad charger seemed to work intermittently in ONE outlet, 2) She accidentally referenced a condo from the Big Island in part of her review of our condo, and 3) Their suitcases were large, to accommodate sporting gear. Standard size suitcases usually fit just fine in the bedroom closets. Note that there are typically 5 empty dresser drawers, along with 2 clothes closets for guests to use. We have regular guests who stay for a month or more and find the storage space perfectly satisfactory. Guests always have the choice of contacting the owner or property manager directly to deal with any housekeeping or maintenance issues. That way, the owner becomes aware of any issues, and resolves them so guests can fully enjoy their stay. Seems like a more pleasant option for all concerned. ;-)
