About the property

One bedroom ocean front condo on Sugar Beach

At the apex and the heart of Maalaea Bay is Sugar Beach. Sugar Beach is a 5 mile, pristine stretch of sand and surf. In the center of Sugar Beach is Sugar Beach Resort. On the oceanfront, beach front side of Sugar Beach Resort is the Maui Ocean Dream Condo #417! The condo is named Maui Ocean Dream because when you have the good fortune to stay in or visit this condo, you will feel like you are living a beautiful dream.

The grounds at Sugar Beach Resort are well maintained and offer a great outdoor swimming pool & jacuzzi, a putting green, nice barbecue area by the beach, some small shops and a cute sandwich place/bar, Dina's Sand Witch!

Condo 417 offers everything to make your beautiful dream a reality. Stroll the beach. Swim in the surf. Sit on the lanai (balcony), watch the ocean, listen to the incredible sound of the waves cresting against the shore. Enjoy watching the birds that like to hang out in the palm tree near the lanai, but please don't feed them!

Condo 417 is a lovely, well equipped, one bedroom, one bath condo with everything you might need to instantly make you feel that you have all of the comforts of home...with none of the worries. The washer and dryer in 417, makes it easy if you must do laundry while you are on vacation!

After some time on the beach (beach chairs and beach towels are in the condo for your use), you can come back to your AIR-CONDITIONED condo and enjoy the cable TV, high speed internet, or call friends and family in the US or Canada for free from the cordless phone! If you like to cook, this kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to create a fabulous meal. Fix yourself a blended drink, a cup of tea or coffee, or open a bottle of your favorite wine to enjoy the beautiful sunset on the lanai.

In addition to all of the activities offered on the island of Maui, Maalaea Bay, which condo 417 overlooks, is the top gathering, breeding and birthing ground for the amazing, beautiful, humpback whales during the months of mid-November to mid-April.

Reserve your time today and make your

Maui Ocean Dream a reality!

About Rhonda Strunk, owner Janna Thomas/Darren Henry, contacts for bookings

I am a nurse practitioner in a busy dermatology clinic in Reno, Nevada. I moved away from Maui more than 25 years ago and I have always felt like this beautiful island has been calling me back! As the new owner of Sugar Beach #417, I have been working on adding my own touches to this wonderful place, so that vacationers can make their Maui dream come true. My condo is family run so I know people that love and care about my condo are taking care of it for me. My sister, Janna, and my nephew, Darren, are my managers (Maui Menehune Aloha,LLC) !

If you need anything while you are here, they are happy to help!

Rhonda Strunk, owner Janna Thomas/Darren Henry, contacts for bookings purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rhonda Strunk, owner Janna Thomas/Darren Henry, contacts for bookings chose South Maui

The sound of the ocean here from the lanai is refreshing and inspiring. The view is beautiful. I love the bay. The whale watching during whale season (Dec-March) is amazing! The babies are born in this bay! Sugar Beach is away from the hubbub of the town, but close enough to everything to be convenient. Sugar Beach is a fantastic

walking/running/playing beach! This property offers everything I want for my much needed Maui holidays!

What makes this condo unique

Ocean front, beach front, beauty!!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This unit is lovely - the location on the beach and the fact it is well supplied with kitchen needs, binoculars, beach needs, etc.

I would recommend upgrading the televisions (the TV in the main room HAS BEEN UPGRADED since this comment :)

We hope to be back again

Great Condo - excellent location and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at other condos and arrived to find it lacking basic supplies so we brought several things with us. Turns out they were not needed. There were plenty of spices for cooking and adequate pots and pans and plenty of dishwashing soap. We brought our own laundry detergent so that was nice to use the washer and dryer in the condo.

The location is great, right on the beach with awesome views. It's about a 10 minute drive to the marina so easy to catch a Molokini snorkel cruise or sunset dinner cruise.

No major complaints except there were 3 or 4 days where the AC unit was not working. It took a few days but finally it was fixed. Given the nightly trade winds, it's not that hot at night so opening the windows provided a nice breeze.

We'd stay here again.

Paradise is exactly what you expect in Maui and this is it!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Thursday and the condo was immaculate clean and ready for our stay. After long flights, we needed a good nights rest and the bed was very comfortable. The pillows need upgrading but we sleep very well regardless. The condo has everything one would need for a vacation. Coffee maker, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, washer/ made the stay perfect. Now for the lanai' view - it was gorgeous, picture perfect in the mornings listening to the waves with coffee/breakfast as the sun rose. We thoroughly enjoyed this. The location of the condo is actually pretty good spot with a 30 minute ride west to Lahaina and Kaanapali and 20 mins east Wailea. Kihei was 5-10 mins down the road with plenty of restaurants, shopping, etc. The condo has several stores in front that are separate from the Resort, one being Dina's Sandwich Shop. We had lunch there once but stopped in many times for the best Mai Tai's on Maui. Having tried restaurants in Lahaina, Kihei and Wailea, we have to rate Dina's Mai Tai's as the best on the island. She can't be beat for her Mai Tai's. We were extremely pleased with the condo, the location, the views, and the relaxation needed for a wonderful vacation/honeymoon on Maui. Thank you Rhonda and Janna for a wonderful stay.

Relaxing in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the very beginning with all the questions we had until the final day everything was perfect! The owners were so helpful and even found two other units for our friends and Father in law. We arrived to our room and it was just as advertised. Updated,clean and the kitchen well stocked with everything you need to cook with. The bed was comfortable, shower strong and hot and furniture all in excellent shape. Whether you want to stay in the room and enjoy the view and sunset or walk on the long white sand beaches you can't go wrong. This is the place to go and forget your worries from home. The pool and hot tub were always clean and warm, the grounds were kept up like a golf course. Laying in bed with the screen doors letting the sound of the waves coming in was the perfect way to fall asleep. The AC worked great as well. We honestly have no complaints about this unit or the owners and if we return to Sugar Beach will defiantly stay here again. The gals at Dino's were a hoot along with the locals that frequented Dino's Sandwitch shop. Food was good and the Mai Tai's perfect! Grocery stores are near by and two local places we recommend to eat is Beach Bums and Cafe' O'Lei in Kihei. Average prices and great food!

Can't wait to to get back!

Great location and place to stay while visiting Maui

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 8 wonderful nights on Maui enjoying the comforts of Sugar Beach #417. Very clean, quiet and well equipped unit, parking was convenient and the resort grounds are immaculate. The view is really fantastic for sunsets, whale watching and enjoying the magnificent Pacific Ocean. Sugar Beach is great for walks in both directions towards Maalaea and Kihei. Location is great for exploring Maui - 15 minutes from the airport & Kahuluhi, great starting point for the Road to Hana and Upcounty - easy access to Wailea and Makena for beach hopping & 30 minutes to Lahaina. Lots of places to pick up good eats and multiple grocery stores within a 10-15 minute drive. This is a great place to stay, we highly recommend Sugar Beach #417.

Beach and view was great

  • 3 of 5

Unit was clean but not as well stocked as other condos we've stayed in. Had a few maintenance issues that had to be addressed but property manager went above and beyond to communicate with us and were prompt to fix problems. Not able to walk to restaurants or stores but driving distance was doable.

My husband and I visited Maui in January of 2017 for our honeymoon! We absolutely loved this unit. The deck looked right out over the ocean and we whale watched from it every day! We caught every sunset from the deck, too! The pool was great! The beach was great! Absolutely no complaints! Close to everything! Great location. Great hospitality!
