Our Condo is well equipped and gets frequent updates. The owners typically come and use the Condo two times per year, so we get to manage the updates and improvements by personally seeing and using the condo. We like the condo to be well maintained, clean, operational, and very comfortable.

Staying in a ground floor unit allows you to simply slide your lanai door open and extend your living space out on to the grass. This is so convenient, especially when traveling with kids who love to get out doors and play without being confined to a balcony. Our units prime location allows you the flexibility to pull the lounge chair out on the grass or sink the beach chair and your toes into the warm sand. Located just steps away from the 'heart' of the Sugar Beach Resort, you will find the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, putting green and 6 BBQ grills right at your disposal!

It is easy to see why the Sugar Beach Resort is a top rated property to spend your Hawaiian Vacation.

The Sugar Beach Resort is situated right in the center of the Island on the outskirts of Kihei. Located on the longest stretch of sandy beach on the Island of Maui (approx. 5 miles long) and just a quick 10 mile drive south of the Maui Airport will have you at the ocean's doorstep in no time flat. Being centrally located allows quick and easy access to other parts of the Island. Just a 5 minute drive to Maalaea Harbor. About 25 minutes west to Lahaina and 30 minutes west to Kaanapali. Head east, the other direction and in just 5 minutes you will be in the heart of Kihei and 15 minutes will have you in the resort area of Wailea.

Although our family enjoys the evening sunsets and dinners cooked at the BBQ grill there are many great restaurants on the Island to choose from along with many great activities to fill your vacation with wonderful Hawaiian memories. To name a few; golfing, snorkeling, canoeing, kayaking ,fishing, whale watching, hiking and bike riding.

A couple of recommendations:
Consider buying the book “Maui Revealed” by Andrew Doughty. Probably available in your local Barnes and Noble. The book gives an insider view of suggested things to see and do while on the island.

Our favorite Restaurants -
1. Mama’s Fish House (Great Seafood and nice atmosphere for Adults - Expensive, but wonderful).
2. Kihei Caffe - For Breakfast if you are Hungry! (cash only) - Great Food excellent portions.
3. Hula Grill - Beachside/Sand Cafe: This is the casual part of restaurant. Menu is not extensive, but you sit outside put feet in the sand and enjoy some Hawaiian Music.
4. Cheeseburger in Paradise - Lahaina (atmosphere is memorable, but expect a long wait). You can do some shopping while you wait.
5. Sansei - Kihei: Sushi is their speciality.

Surfing -
1. Recommend Maui Wave Riders. You can rent boards in Kihei, and return them to a different location such as Lahaina. They give lessons if needed.
2. Paddle Boarding is lot’s of fun too. You can rent these right at Sugar Beach Resort with Maui Sights and Treasures.

Snorkeling: The first 2 listed have bathrooms, clear water, and a beautiful beach. Best to go in the morning before trade winds pick up.
1. Our favorite place is in Makena. “Maluaka Beach”
2. Kahekili - Airport Beach in Kaanapali
3. Ahihi Cove: Makena (no bathrooms and rocky beach, but nice cove to snorkel in)

Hikes -
1. Waihe’e Ridge Trail - We have enjoyed this trail.
2. Waihe Valley Trail - (my wife and her girlfriend’s really enjoyed this one).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My wife and I first met in Waikiki while on vacation. This immediately made Hawaii a special place for us. Our family lives in Littleton, Colorado just on the outskirts of Denver. We are lucky to have some great travel benefits due to my employment as an Airline Pilot, which allow our family to go to Maui several times a year. We normally take 2 annual vacations over in Maui spending typically 2 weeks at a time (1 month per year) over in Maui, and rent our condo out the rest of the time. We have 3 boys who consider Maui their second home. It is always a joy for our family to relax on the beach, play at the pool and to enjoy the many sights and activities that Maui has to offer. We hope that we are able to share our little corner of the world with you and your family. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance to you on planning your next vacation to Maui. Aloha - Gary & Kara, Littleton, CO.

Why the Owner Chose Kihei, HI, USA:
Maui is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Working as an Airline Pilot I have had the unique chance to travel and stay at many places in the world, and have always found the Hawaiian Islands and Maui in particular to be a great place to go. Maui offers some of the nicest beaches of all of the Islands. They frequently say 'Maui No Ka 'Oi' which simple means Maui is the best! We had stayed several times at the Sugar Beach Resort and really liked the location and the friendly atmosphere we found there. You can't get any closer to the beach and water! It is only 15 steps from the Lanai of our ground floor Unit to the white sands of Sugar Beach! Imagine having your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail just a few steps from the beachfront. Our beachfront is sandy and is great for sunbathing, swimming, boogie boarding, snorkeling, building sand castles or simply walking the shoreline. We have 5-miles of soft white sand for walking or jogging right in front of our Resort. Our Family goes to Maui 2 to 3 times per year, which allows us to make sure our Condo is 1st Class. We are constantly upgrading and updating our Condo to make sure it would be rated as an A+ Unit We receive from feedback from our guests who compare our Unit with others at the Sugar Beach Resort, and it is very common for guests to write us and comment that our Unit was the “best equipped and the nicest unit they have stayed at while vacationing at the Sugar Beach Resort”.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
If you book directly through this website, you can make a credit card payment for your reservation. If you contact the owners we can set up alternate payment methods including acceptance of a personal check (USD), cashiers check, or we can send you a private invoice from Paypal. When making Reservation - A 3-Night Payment is required to Hold your Reservation. There is a 13.42% Hawaii State Tax added to your nightly total. Balance of Payment due is 30-days prior to the start of the reservation. Check in Time is after 3:00 PM Check out Time is before 11:00 AM If you have a late flight off the Island - you can pre-arrange for a late check out up til 9:00 PM. The cost to guarantee a late check out is 1/2 of the daily rate plus tax. Cancellation Policy: For a deposit refund, less a $150.00 fee, cancellation is required 30 days or more prior to arrival date. For cancellations received within 30 days of arrival or after arrival date, payments will be retained. If the space can be re-rented, a pro-rata refund will be issued less a $150.00 fee.
