About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms

The fabulous Sunset Beach House is located on a sandy beach in the sunniest part of Maui. This new 3 bedroom home will be the perfect location for your group of friends or family. Enjoy your own gated luxury home right on the beach for about the same price as accommodating your group in a condo complex. .

You will have beachfront living with your own private waterfall/spa, large yard, home theater, modern kitchen and much more. Relax and enjoy the spectacular sunsets. Be sure to see more pictures and details on our WEBSITE by clicking the 'link for more information' below .

The master bedroom has a full ocean view and it's own lanai. And what a view! Even the shower has a great view. Watch the moon set in the ocean from your bed. Let the sound of the waves put you to sleep.

There is a covered lanai with a table for outdoor dining. The ocean, the beach, the large lawn and the spa give kids of all ages plenty of places to relax or play.

Though our home is on a quiet street, we are walking distance from restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, grocery stores, open air markets, and parks with playgrounds.

The beach behind the home extends a long way in both directions. Boogie boards, lawn toys and sand toys are available at the house. Water toys like kayaks and surfboards can be rented nearby.

During whale season (Dec. - March), the water behind our home is a favored place for humpback whales, especially mothers and new babies. They are active acrobats and it is exciting to watch them play.

This home is approved for rental by the County of Maui - Permit #2013/0016.

About Bryce Buchanan

My wife and I spend most of the year in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Three of our daughters and their families are nearby. A fourth daughter lives in Utah. We spend 2 months per year in our Maui home.


Bryce Buchanan purchased this house in 2001

Why Bryce Buchanan chose South Maui

Windsurfing took us to Maui for vacations starting in the 80's. We ended up loving the place and we built our beachfront vacation home there in 2000.

What makes this house unique

Almost everything I like to do in Maui I can do in my own back yard. Nearly every water sport you can think of is possible at one time or another, depending on weather and waves. Or, if we prefer to relax, it would be difficult to find a better place for that.

Part of the pleasure of owning this home is sharing it with people and hearing them talk about how much they love it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our 4th time here and just as wonderful as our first. Can't wait for our 5th and 6th.

Thanks again for your generosity

Incomparable Sunset Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 - age 3 to age 90 enjoyed staying at this amazing dream home! The Buchanans have thought of every detail to make our stay just like home... except better, because of the amazing location - right on the beach, with a great green space for play and relaxation. Everything about this home is quality and it is very well cared for. Amenities galore - kayaks, snorkeling equipment, kids beach toys, umbrellas, beach chairs, etc. etc. and in the house - nothing was left unthought of - hairdryers, computer access, netflix, blender, crockpot,etc. etc. We did not want to come home....ever! We will definitely look forward to next time!

Incredible Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home during our stay in Maui. We can't say enough about this amazing property! The house itself was perfect in every sense - clean, conveniently located to shops and restaurants, and great amenities on site. The beach was beautiful and great for swimming and water activities. We rented SUP and kayaks and every morning we would be greeted by sea turtles during our paddle - it was such a surreal experience. The sunsets were gorgeous and we would often cook dinner at the house, as to not miss out! The pictures do not do this property justice - our stay here was fabulous! As an added bonus, the home owners were very helpful, kind, and accommodating. We visited from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and it was incredibly reassuring to know that any questions we had were answered promptly and with ease. If we could give this vacation property more than 5 stars, we would! :) We are already thinking about planning our next trip back to Maui and staying in this lovely home again.

Dream home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house for just the 2 of us as a honeymoon/anniversary/vacation retreat and our first time visiting Hawaii. We wanted to pretend for a week that we lived in our own house and this property was perfect!!! The sunsets were beautiful, the spa was refreshing and relaxing, the bed was comfortable, the window air conditioning was great on those humid days. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessary equipment so that we could cook our own meals when we felt like staying in. It was great to come home to after going out and having an adventure. I REALLY recommend this house for your stay in Maui. My only complaint is that the back yard is not very private. It gets kind of busy with neighbors and beach goers constantly walking through it rather than using the beach or their own pathways. But other than that, we could not have been more happy!!! Thank you Bryce & Beebe!!!! We would love to come back someday!!!!

Deserves 6 stars

  • 5 of 5

We went there with our two grown sons and daughter in-law. Plenty of space for all of us. The house is beautifully appointed, the details throughout show the incredible love and care Bryce and Beebe gave to building it. A perfect central location to everything on the island. The house has everything you could want, water toys, cooking equipment,.... and the view, simply marvelous. After the kids went home we had four more days to spend on the island and went to a boutique hotel in Lahina, such a disappointment after this house. We called Bryce if he could recommend another place and he let us come back to the o'hana for our last two nights, while he did some upgrades to the main house. We can't thank you enough for sharing your lovely home with us.

Thanksgiving vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great way to celebrate my 60 th birthday. My husband, son, daughter in law, sister and grandchildren all went. Spent all our time on the great beach or looking at it from the house. The house was awesome! Very clean and loaded with everything we needed. Not far from town, stores close by. Limes on tree were the best we ever had! Sunsets were beautiful. Lots of rainbows as we had rain, but we didn't care we sat on the beach in the rain. Could not get the grandkids out of the water. Would definitely go back. Already planning our next trip.

Elleair ... and Wailea courses are nearby
Car: recommended

Most water sports are possible in the ocean behind the house. Kitesurfing, stand-up paddleboarding and boogie boarding can be added to the list above. When the humpback whales are here, whalewatching is great from the house. There is a new, large, free, public pool very nearby as well as several nearby golf courses. The aquarium in Maalea is not far away. And we are just 3 miles north of Wailea and it's golf courses.
