About Fran Reed

We have been a visitors to the Maui for the last 25 years. On my second visit to Sugar Beach Resort, I knew that it was time for me to purchase my condominium. As long time residents of Santa Cruz, CA., the ocean and beach have always been a major part of my lifestyle.

Fran Reed purchased this condo in 2001

Why Fran Reed chose Kihei

Sugar Beach Resort has all the amenities I desired; wonderful ocean views, gorgeous sunsets and an extremely long stretch of white sandy beach for

walking, jogging or sun bathing.

Located in the middle of the Island, this central location makes it very easy to branch out to other areas of the Island in very little time. There are many restaurants, activities and shopping near by.

What makes this condo unique

I have always considered this my second residence (my home away from home) and opened it up to guests so they in turn could enjoy it as much as I do. Of course, I'm very delighted to share my condominium with my returning and new guests. The awesome views, sounds of the ocean and Aloha spirit of Maui await you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Can't wait to go back! This condo was outstanding. The accommodations are exactly as pictured. You cold not ask for anything more, it is peaceful, relaxed, quiet, family oriented, and has everything you could possibly want. Take your clothes, sunscreen, and food because everything else is provided including a travel agent who will help plan your time on the island. Close to restaurants, quaint shops, and the beach. Great communications with the owners! We recommend this condo and resort without hesitation! (This review was posted at the request of Ron & Bobbie)

Ideal location on Maui with beautiful ocean view

  • 4 of 5

The most insightful thing I can share to ensure a future customer might select this property is the responsiveness of Fran and her team to an issue we had with the condo. The issue wasn't major but we reported it the first morning. The response was IMMEDIATE and a service man was to the unit and had the issue resolved in 90 minutes. With that kind of attention to customer service one cannot go wrong with renting this unit.

This particular unit, being an end unit, has an extra window providing additional views of the ocean. Unit is clean and comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped with appliances, cooking utensils and flatware. Grounds of Sugar Beach are immaculate. Pool well maintained and clean.

Sugar Beach Resort is centrally located making the drives to Lahaina, Wailea and Kahului relatively easy.

Spectacular Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

Fran's condo is a gem. A Hawaiian furnished condo on a lovely very well kept resort, a oasis of relaxation and beautiful views. Great location, very quiet place with a lovely koi fish pond just below the lanai. Very clean and well equipped, perfect for our first stay in Maui. We had to check out at 11:00 on our last day there and Fran let us stay till 5:00 so we could enjoy our last day in Maui. Thank you so very much Fran, cherished memories made. We hope to return one day and rent your condo again. What a spectacular view of the ocean! Mahalo.

My husband and I love #212!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to Sugar Beach Resort for 30 plus years and we've had the privilege of staying in this unit twice now and our son and daughter in law have stayed there once. It's our favorite.

Fran Reed (her husband and her are the owners) is the best! She's so kind and helpful and wants to ensure that your stay is perfect.

Their unit is in a handy location, on the end so you get an extra window of ocean view. It's on the second floor so we never used the elevator except for loading and unloading our baggage. It's located right above the koi pond which we love. We enjoy hearing the soothing water feature of the koi pond and watching the gentle movement of the koi. The view is to die for! The unit is decorated very nicely. Stocked very well and was very clean and fresh. We also appreciated the thoughtful personal touches of the housekeeper! Small things that show that they care and want you to have a very enjoyable stay. Of course the Sandwitch is an awesome little sports bar on the property. A locals hangout where you can drop in for a beer and a snack or a full lunch or dinner. Great food and great staff! In our opinion the beat stretch of sandy beach on the island! We will continue to stay at Sugar Beach Resort and hopefully be able to get into unit 212 in the future (even though we have a time share we could use in Kihei).

5 Stars from us!

A bit dated but impressively clean and efficient.

  • 4 of 5

Not right on the beach but a gorgeous view of the ocean and West Maui mountain. This is a 60's resort but meticulously maintained. The central location makes all of Maui easily accessible. The beach is walkable for several miles in each direction and fairly deserted. Wonderful, quiet, relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Hello Al, Thank your for submitting your review. I'm glad to hear you had a wonderful, quiet and relaxing time at Sugar Beach, even though it may not have been a tad older than you expected. The complex is Ocean Front Property, in that you need not cross a street to walk on the beach. There is a mix of ocean front and ocean view condominiums. The homeowners take much pride in the care and presence of the Resort. It has undergone major upgrades and continues to do so. It is a very warm, welcoming place in the true Aloha spirit!! Thanks for staying with us! Fran
