About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Welcome to Sugar Beach #228. We invite you to enjoy one of the world's finest beaches - Sugar Beach, with its 5 miles of golden soft sand, warm water and beautiful sunsets. This direct oceanfront condominium has been completely remodeled with all of the high end finishes you deserve for your Maui vacation.

When you open the front door you are greeted to a breathtaking and endless ocean view. Open the wall to wall sliding glass doors, step onto your private lanai and you are captivated by the soothing sound of the waves and the gorgeous sandy beach that is just feet from the tips of your barefoot toes. This is truly everything you dreamed Maui to be.

Sugar Beach #228 has been completely remodeled. In the kitchen you will find beautiful bamboo cabinets and gorgeous granite countertops, including a large eat-at island. There's lots of cookware and bakeware, mixing bowls and food storage containers, a coffee pot, toaster and a powerful blender for making perfect tropical smoothies.

In the bathroom there is a full-sized tiled shower with pebbled flooring. We also provide a hair dryer (so you have more room in your suitcase for taking home macadamia nuts!) and we make sure you have soap, shampoo and other essentials to get you started.

The lanai and the unit are covered throughout with 18 inch porcelain tiles. Cool on your feet and it won't leave you wondering what the last guy left behind in the carpet you've been walking on with your bare feet!

Sugar Beach #228 is a direct oceanfront unit located on the second floor. When you are inside you feel like you are sitting directly on the ocean. The second floor is ideal because you have the option of just going up and down one flight of stairs if you don't want to wait for an elevator. Unit #228 is also one of a few select units that does not have a side wall blocking your view of the beach from the lanai, allowing for unobstructed views up and down glorious Sugar Beach.

Sugar Beach Resort is centrally located on Maui making it the ideal place to stay for all of your adventures. You can book a whale watching or snorkeling cruise, a helicopter ride, a bike trip down a volcano or just get some local restaurant recommendations - all on site! Check it out at the Maui Sights and Treasures website. If you just want to relax and get a tan, Sugar Beach offers miles of sandy beach perfect for swimming and snorkeling, a hot tub and heated swimming pool, a putting green, and lots of poolside and oceanfront lounge chairs.

Sugar Beach #228 is simply the perfect place to stay for your time in paradise. To top it off, there are no annoying resort fees and the parking is free. We also provide you with complimentary Netflix in case you feel like an oceanfront movie night! Sugar Beach #228 - You're going to love it!

10% discount on stays 21 days or more !! Condo sleeps 2 people max. There is no sleeper sofa.

About Karen Wielick

We purchased this condo in 2013 after years of dreaming of living on Maui. We currently spend 2 months of our time at Sugar Beach and the remainder of the year in Phoenix, Arizona.

Why Karen Wielick chose Central Maui

The first time we came to Sugar Beach was for our honeymoon 27 years ago. We walked through the door that very first time and it felt like home. Every time we returned to Maui we always stayed at Sugar Beach. There is a serenity here that is like no other. It is now our half home, and we are delighted to share it with you and hope you make as many amazing memories as we have made.

Karen and Glen were the best owners to work with! So helpful, kind and friendly. Calling to talk personally and provide helpful tips about the island prior to arriving and providing a book of information about the resort, condo and surrounding area when we walked in the door. The condo had everything we needed and more, very well stocked! The condo is on a perfect beach that we walked every morning, close to downtown Kihei, but far enough to have peace and quiet. We loved everything about this condo and hated to leave! Thank you Karen and Glen for sharing your condo with us, it was heaven and just what we dreamed of for our 25th anniversary.

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great place and experience for us! Don't look any further, just grab your dates and lock in Sugar Beach 228 before someone else does. This was our 4th visit to Maui and first time staying at Sugar Beach Resorts. The unit is absolutely gorgeous, with a million dollar view of the ocean just feet away. You get a front row, unobstructed view of each and every sunset, and you can see from Haleakala to West Maui. Watch the fishing boats on the bay, walkers on the beach, children playing in the surf...We could (and did) enjoy the lanai for hours. Or, be right on the beach within seconds. A short walk down the beach and you find an ABC store for grocery staples, along with a local bakery and the best Hawaiian shave Ice we've ever tasted - don't miss it! Safeway, CVS, etc. are about 3 miles away...just a short drive. The doors to the lanai open up to completely invite the ocean sounds and breezes into the unit. Of course there's AC if you get too warm. Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need, and it's good quality, not cheap stuff. The washer and dryer worked flawlessly, and were so handy to have right in the unit. Lots of closet space available, as well as a large dresser with 3 drawers. TV and WIFI also worked flawlessly. The office staff were very friendly and helpful, and gave us some great recommendations. One of the very best aspects of the unit is interaction with Karen, the owner, who's thoughtful and considerate, and clearly communicates everything. Stop reading and get it hooked! You will not be disappointed!! Highly recommend!!

Fantastic VRBO with wonderful view and great location!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were there for a delayed honeymoon, and it was exactly what we hoped it would be. The finishes in this VRBO were of high quality, especially the kitchen and the bathroom. The view from our balcony was beautiful, looking directly out over the ocean. The beach was just steps away from our room. We had plenty of utensils and cook ware, supplies were more than sufficient, they had snorkeling gear, beach chairs, beach umbrella, just great things we could utilize. The location was central for everything we wanted to do in Maui, and the major roadways were easily accessible. The owners of the VRBO were very nice to work with and always answered all of our questions and were always available and accessible. If and when we return to Maui (and my wife would like to go back tomorrow!), we would definitely try to stay here again. Kudos to the owners for living up to what they advertised, fantastic place to stay in Maui!!!

Beautiful and modern!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon. When we first arrived we were very impressed by how modern and updated everything was. The place is very nice with a spectacular view right out to the beach. I think one of the best things about sugar beach resort is that it's just enough off the beaten path that it feels more private than the places right in Kihei. The location gives you great access to a lower traffic beach area that you can see from the condo. Our main point of contact was Karen. She was great to work with and very prompt in contacting us following our intitial inquiry. We had a late flight and she made herself available via cell phone just in case we needed any assistance. Amazing service! It was just a wonderful place to stay!

We can't say enough about our vacation and working with Karen. From ease of booking, to the communications after we booked, Karen was friendly and a pleasure to work with. As far as the condo...It was fantastic! The condo was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay at Sugar Beach. Beach chairs, boogey boards, snorkel gear....they had it all. Kelly and I can't wait to go back and would recommend this location to all our friends and family!!!!!!
