A Day in the Life at Sugar Beach

Start your morning with a barefoot stroll along the surf on Hawaii’s longest beach and feel the warm white sand between your toes. In the spring you will most likely see a humpback whale or two breaching offshore, and you’ll see Hawaiian sea turtles most anytime of the year. Finish your walk with a dip in the warm waters of Maalaea bay or swim in the heated saltwater pool at sugar beach resort. A soak in the hot tub might feel even better.

Enjoy breakfast while gazing at the ocean from your lanai or through the large window next to your dining table. The menu includes fresh apple bananas, papaya, and mangoes from the famous Kihei farmer’s market, just a short walk from your condo.

The day presents a palette of activities. Take a cruise out to watch whales jumping in the air or dolphins following your boat. Snorkel off Molokini island. Learn to surf. Go shopping in the old whaler town of Lahaina. Take a drive to the north shore, visit the retro-town of Paia and have lunch at the world-famous mama’s fish house. Or, if you’re really up for an experience, drive all the way to heavenly Hana and swim in the seven sacred pools. See the sunrise over the crater on Haleakala. Play one of Maui’s world class golf courses. Or what the heck, just kick back on the beach all day.

It is 6:00 pm and time for watching the sun set over the west Maui mountains which is conveniently viewed from your lanai. The sky turns the color of a Mai tai as you relax in the warmth of the tropical evening. Decisions, decisions. Will it be a quiet night listening to the crashing surf or dinner at one of Maui’s fabulous restaurants? Whatever the choice you can be sure the night will end with the sounds of the ocean lulling you to sleep. Life is good.

Oh, and a few words about your island home: sugar beach 312 is a highly desirable corner unit so you have ocean views from two sides and lots of air and light filling your living area. Even the bedroom has a view of Haleakala. Your lanai overlooks the pool as well as the ocean and provides gorgeous sunset watching. Features include:

About Roy Bruder

I first came to Hawaii in 1973 and fell immediately in love. I started a business on Oahu and later lived on Maui for 8 years. I retired 17 years ago and began traveling. I am now a full time world traveler but always return to the islands when I circle around to this part of the globe. This photo, taken in Alberobello, Italy, is me with my 3 loves--my 2 beautiful daughters and my '76 Westfalia Bus.

Roy Bruder purchased this condo in 2012

Why Roy Bruder chose Kihei

Sugar Beach has the perfect location. You are close enough to all the great restaurants of Wailea, Maalaea, and Lahaina, close to the shopping center in Kahului with everything from Costco to Whole Foods. I don't even bother renting a car when I'm here. There is a bus stop just a short walk away which will get you most places on the island. And, it isn't bad living right on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

I looked at dozens of condos before I walked into 312 and instantly knew it was the one for me. It was so bright and airy where others seemed cramped and dark. The side window looking out at the ocean was the killer and the fact that it has a larger bedroom than most of the other units was a big plus as well.

sugar beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect. You have a fantastic view of the water. The condo is very clean, has all the amenities you need, snorkel, towels, beach chairs, coolers and boogie boards. The waves right out front are perfect for a beginner. There are tons of lounging chairs at the pool or on the grass as well. If you are cooking, there are nice clean pots, pans, utensils and dishes. The patio is perfect for early morning coffee and you get an incredible view of the sunset. Sugar beach is at a perfect location, close enough to Lahaina, Kihei, Kahului, if you want to go into Costco or Target etc. I would stay at this condo again for sure!!!

So glad we decided to stay here

  • 5 of 5

This was a much needed vacation for me and my family. We were so glad we could call this place home for a week.

The owner was kind enough to accommodate us entering the property well before standard checkin time because of how early our flight landed.

The house was in a great proximity to many things. The property grounds were well tended to and clean. The condo had everything we needed for our stay and more. It was clean and the views of the ocean were amazing!!! Even my 3 year old sat out on the balcony every morning enjoying her breakfast and the views!

This place was cute and we will most definitely visit again!!

Does it get any better?

  • 5 of 5

After 3 days driving around the island I feel we made the best decision staying at Sugar Beach Resort. It's located in a beautiful spot with lovely views of the ocean and the gentle slope of a mountain. This particular room is a corner room and the views out the window and from the balcony are excellent. Sugar Beach Resort seems to be well managed, guests are generally quiet so all we heard while relaxing in our room were the waves crashing on the beach even though there were guests in the pool, jacuzzi, and cooking out at the charbroilers outside. The unit was extremely clean. The furniture, very good quality and everything worked perfectly. The kitchen has about everything one needs to cook in the room. We shopped at the Times Supermarket about 10 minutes away and bought groceries for our 3 days. We only ate out once. Eating Hawaiian Poke and white rice is enough for us. We also enjoyed the Kona coffee, fresh pineapple, and POG juice we bought from Times. I cannot think of anything we needed that wasn't already in the condo, other than a strong pair of scissors for opening things in the kitchen. Not only were the cabinets and drawers neatly stocked with essentials, the plates and glassware were very nice. I think this place is suitable for guests who like to cook and can appreciate the extra quality and cleanliness. Overall, we were very impressed and were able to achieve a high level of relaxation. I felt we received exceptional value by choosing this place. One more thing, the guest information folder the property owner created helped us a lot. We found out about Maui Fridays and were able to attend a festival in Lahaina, just west of Sugar Beach, which was really fun. Wish we could have stayed a couple of weeks here.

Wonderful place to stay while on vacation in Maui!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I booked a last minute trip to Maui and were on the hunt for a great place to stay. I searched on TripAdvisor, AirBnb and lastly VRBO. As soon as I came across Roy's condo I knew that this one was different then the rest. Roy was quick to respond and communicate via email, answered all my questions, and it was very pleasant communicating with him.

When we arrived, the place totally exceeded our expectations! It is just as described, reflecting the high reviews from others. It is in a GREAT location, super close to the airport and driving distance around the island. The beach and hot tub are superb benefits - what more can you want then walking out to your balcony and seeing the ocean, as well as walking a few steps and you are close proximity to a pool, hot tub and ocean?! The instructions of checking in/and out were super easy to follow, the condo was SPOT CLEAN, very welcoming, things were labelled and a binder of super helpful information is there for you to read upon your arrival.

The one reason that I took away 1 star is because there were some condo supplies a little unorganized and a few staple items not offered and we had to go out and buy them which was a little inconvenient. For example, large zip locks, condiments, etc. However, the owner did ask for feedback after which I told him about this so hopefully in the future this won't be the case.

Overall we had a wonderful stay and 100% recommend this place to anyone looking for a stay in Maui!
