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).

About Gary & Kara Moore

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.

Gary & Kara Moore purchased this condo in 2001

Why Gary & Kara Moore chose South Maui

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”.

Wonderful place. Great Location. Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Spent four nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed including a very handy washer and dryer. The view is spectacular, and we enjoyed having our meals on the patio just steps away from the ocean. Having little extras like beach chairs and coolers was a big plus, too. The location is perfect for seeing the whole island including the Road to Hana, the Maui Ocean Center, great snorkeling (even saw a Sea Turtle), etc. The booking and check-in process was seamless, and the owners very communicative & quick to respond. Highly recommend booking a stay at Sugar Beach #120.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Sugar beach #120 was more than we could have hoped for. The view was unbelievable, the beach was right outside the back door. The condo had all the comforts of home, including a comfortable bed, all kitchen appliances and utensils, beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and coolers. There are plenty of grocery stores and restaurants a quick drive away. Thank you Gary and Kara, we are so glad we picked your condo to celebrate our 15th anniversary!

Beautiful condo on Maui is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this condo to celebrate our 30th anniversary and brought our adult kids. Our friends/neighbors recommended it to us. We spent six nights here on Maui and six nights on Oahu. This location was the highlight of our trip. It was so relaxing and the location was perfect.

Read the visitor guides first for great tips on things to do. I made a list for when we return, which we will do!

The grounds are quiet and peaceful. The general condo complex is beautiful and really well maintained. We saw grounds keepers trimming when we were there and they clearly do great job.

We used the barbeque one night and if we had stayed longer, we would have done this more often. We spent our days touring the volcano, blowholes on the north shore, snorkeling south and visiting Lahaina. It was great to always come back to a really relaxing location. Sugar Beach has sandy areas and and also a central rocky area that could be good for snorkeling but we tried too late in the day when it wasn't as clear.

We rented snorkel equipment from the concierge on site and she was great. We got more ideas on local food places and took her up on her recommendations.

The pool was relaxing, even with children around. There are rules on toys and noise levels that really helped with that.

The condo itself was wonderful and larger than I had imagined from the reviews and from the review photos. The bed in the main bedroom was very comfy. The bathroom is gorgeous. There is a door to separate the toilet/shower area from the sink for getting ready but all access is through the master bedroom.

The kitchen was easy to navigate and was impressively stocked with equipment. And previous visitors had left some spices that came in handy. We bought some coffee filters and extra toilet paper, but that was all we needed to buy besides food and drinks.

The first night we arrived late and the beach was dark. We still wanted to explore and were happy to find three flashlights in the cupboard. These little things were so nice. When we went snorkeling it was really important to have that cooler to stock with sandwiches, snacks and water. And the beach chairs and boogie boards came in handy too.

We sat outside to eat daily. Since it is ground floor, the ocean is so close and you just have to walk across a small patch of lawn and you are on the beach.

Thank you for the wonderful time and the use of your beautiful place. We hope to return someday!

Spectacular! Location, location, location; bathroom note

  • 5 of 5

Location: Unit is located on ground level, literally steps from the beach. When you are on a tropical island, you do not want to have to do steps, cross a street, or even go around the corner to get to the beach. You want to sit, looking at the water, and be able to stand up, walk straight ahead a few steps and dive in. Here you can do just that. :-) The beach itself is nice, and during our visit, not crowded. During the week, we often had the beach to ourselves. The central location on the island makes it easy to reach other sites.

The unit itself is really nice. As the pictures show, it has been updated. The layout is quite functional and is wonderfully equipped. You can store/cook food to save on dining bills. There are coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, and towels for enjoying the beach. The washer/dryer adds convenience. The shower/bath is very nice.

One note regarding the bathroom. There is no door -- or even curtain -- between the bath room and the bedroom. While you can close the bedroom and bathroom from the main unit, and you can close the shower and toilet from the sink, you cannot close the bedroom and leave the bath accessible from the rest of the unit. That means if anyone sleeps on the couch and needs access to the bathroom, they will essentially be in the bedroom.

We LOVED our stay!
