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)

Excellent accommodation very clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our unit was well supplied to get us through the first couple of days, this was very much appreciated as this was our first trip to Maui and this allow us to settle in and get comfortable. All you would have at home was available also in our unit. It truly was a home away from home.

Comfort and location in lovely setting!

  • 5 of 5

Well-equipped and roomy condo with comfortable and sturdy furnishings- homey. We spent many hours on the lanai enjoying the view of bay, pool activities, and koi feedings in the morning. Kitchen had everything we needed to do breakfasts and either a lunch or dinner every day. We used the outdoor grills, entertained friends from Alaska (large heated pool and very large hottub), and enjoyed LONG walks in both directions on Sugar Beach. You can catch a lesson and canoe experience (we lucked out and attended the Pink Paddlers monthly birthday breakfast after our paddle) -

just two condo buildings up the beach (north). Centrally located for easy access to Kihei, Kahului, or West Maui. ABC store is a short walk, as well as a bakery, shave ice, and local farmer's market. Our only complaint was with the structure of the units - all bedrooms are windowed toward the parking lots, the busy road and the dumpster - so road and trash bin dragging noises sometimes awakened us as early as 5am. Altogether this was a very good value compared to hotels or condos with no beach access!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely comments. So glad you enjoyed your stay at Sugar Beach and our condominium. It's hard to believe that people would be up wandering about at early hours of the morning, but that could happen occasionally. Sorry for any disturbance. The units were intentionally deisigned with the bedrooms at the back to utilize the wonderful ocean views up front. We look forward to having you return as our guests in the future!

Wonderful surprise, ocean view was much better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

We had a late arrival, the lock box worked great. We woke up the next morning to a gorgeous view of the ocean and palm trees from our lanai. There was a packet of Hawaiian coffee for our first pot.

The cabinets were well stocked with the basics, salt, pepper, spices, vinegar, etc. Just about any appliance we would ever need. The kitchen was very clean and everything worked. Air conditioning worked great. Bed is very comfortable. Very quiet complex, hot tub is a social gathering place.

Sugar beach goes on for miles, canoe club south is a "must do". Kamaole 3 and Makena Beach was excellent snorkeling, 10 minute or so drive..

The owner, Fran was very responsive (wonderful personality).

We can't wait to get back.

Sugar Beach Resort is beautifully maintained and right on the beach. It is centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at Fran's Condo. It has a great view of the beach and the pool and is steps away from them. It was a very comfortable home away from home. The kitchen had everything in it that we needed. We loved the long walks on the beach and the beautiful sunsets.
