About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . WELCOME TO SUNSET CENTRAL! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
At Sunset Central YOU ARE SO CLOSE YOU CAN FEEL THE OCEAN! As soon as you walk into SUNSET CENTRAL you take a deep breath and start to smile. You are seeing the incredible ocean view and hearing the waves. SUNSET CENTRAL IS as nice as you hoped for. Why?
The old Cliché, "VIEW, VIEW, VIEW". We have of one of the BEST OCEAN VIEWS in Maui. You don't think about it but "NOT" having a pool, or condo complex lounge chair seating, or tall lanai rails, or anything in your ocean view makes it that much better. The view from inside the condo is great and the view from our lanai is almost 180 degrees with no obstructions. We have the perfect combination for a ROMANTIC stay. A quiet and quaint location off the main road, stunning views, and soothing Pacific Ocean surround sound. There is NO EQUAL to being GROUND FLOOR directly on the ocean. No walking around your building(s), or down stairs and through hallways, or across streets to get to the ocean. Carry your chair 25 feet to the ocean edge and watch a 180 degree sunset. Does the drink you brought with you need a refill or you forgot your camera? No problem. Ten steps back to get it. Don't want to move 25 feet to the ocean edge? Just watch a sunset, sunrise, or simply the ocean from your very large lanai. The lanai has a ceiling fan for added comfort. Do you want your condo to be on a beach for sunbathing, snorkeling or just plain walking on it? We have a new upgraded stair access to our little semi-private “Rainbow Beach”. All this while still being minutes from all of the great things to do on the famous West Maui coast.
SUNSET CENTRAL faces directly West providing WONDERFUL SUNSET shows. During the year the sunsets move back and forth from the islands of Lanai and Molokai. What a sight. Words can’t describe what it is like watching sunsets from your condo right on the beautiful West Maui OCEAN EDGE and with the sounds of the ocean. It is fun even when the sunsets are not spectacular.
The PICTURES, VIDEO, and 250+ RENTER COMMENTS tell it all. I suggest you go to our Owner's website and click on the guest comments. The owners website button is right above the photos at the towards the end of this ad.
DECOR: Our goal was to make the family/dining room feel as large as possible even though it is larger than usual for Maui. Our tv/stereo and our dining table set are on one wall. The sofa sleeper and recliner are set up on the other wall. The result is a large open area in the middle of the room. We think we accomplished our goal. We also added mirrors on one wall. These make the room feel larger as well as providing an ocean view from almost any direction you are facing.
SERVICE: We only have one condo to manage so we give 100% of our attention to you and no amount of attention is too much. Even though we can easily accommodate 4 people in our large condo we only allow a max. of 2. This is to minimize the wear and to help make sure our condo is in good shape when you arrive. We have a large separate bedroom with a CA king size bed. A separate bedroom is nice compared to a studio that has that hotel type feeling. We do have a queen size sofa sleeper.
IMPROVEMENTS: Bathroom remodel in completed 08/14 changing from tub to walk in shower etc. New TV in the bedroom. Changed phone service that allows calls out to anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. We added a FAN on our LANAI. This adds hours per day and night that are comfortable on the lanai. We also vented our washer/dryer unit to outside. Major feature! Less heating inside your condo. When you have a washer and dryer you are not spending part of your vacation watching your clothes in a community facility.
POOL: Our pool is small and it is not oceanfront. See our photo. The pool would not be the reason for renting our condo.
A/C: As of 9/15 we have the option A/C in the bedroom. There is an additional cost but it is an option.
To view other nice videos click on the 'OWNERS WEBSITE' link above the photos towards the end of this ad. Some of our website videos are “Breakfast on our Lanai”, “View from our Beach Stairs”, a view from our semi-private “Rainbow Beach”, and 'Sunset Stages'.
SUNSET CENTRAL is conveniently located between KAANAPALI and KAHANA, just 5 miles North of LAHAINA, and on the renown West Side of Maui.
SHORT STAY SPECIALS: Only available when 7 days of renting are not available. We may discount the price. Total is for 2 people and does not include HI tax.
06/13/17, 4 night special including weekend, $160/nt plus tax, cleaning fee waived if all nights reserved
Please note that our 3 night or more minimum stay requirement is subject to various conditions, including but not limited to only 3 nights being available or whether the dates deny the potential for a longer rental option, etc. We prefer stays of 7 nights or longer to reduce the turnover times for our condo.

We are located 5 miles North of Lahaina in a quiet compex, close to everthing. We have over 200 guest comments that tell of events each of the guests enjoyed while staying at our condo. It is like a travel guide specific to our location here in West Maui
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We (Ray and Connie) are from California. We love the outdoors and we especially love water and the sound of water on rivers, waterfalls, the ocean and even when it rains. When we like something we tend to keep coming back. Having a condo in West Maui is an example. Not a bad routine. We know you will love Maui too.
Why the Owner Chose Lahaina, HI, USA:
Connie and I (Ray) visited Maui from California for the first time about 15 years ago. Every time we came back we spent some time looking at condos. The question was, Where to buy? South Maui (Kihei), or West Maui? The first requirement was to be right on the ocean. We preferred the famous West Maui side but there were very few available in our range due to its popularity. Finally after several trips to Maui we came upon one in West Maui that was so close to the ocean and romantic that it would not let us go. The rest is history. Now we have a nice home away from home that we get to visit a few times a year. Sharing our condo and hearing how much our guests like it is a benefit we did not know would come with our purchase. See for yourself by reading our 200 plus renters comments.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo is unique due to having one of the best views in Maui, our proximity to the ocean, our beach access, the small size of complex, being off the main road, and the quaint, quiet feel you get when staying there. The view right out to the ocean is almost 180 degrees with no pool or complex lounge seating in the way is unmatched. Although we have a large condo, over 600 square feet and could easily sleep 4 people, we only allow 3 as a maximum. The result is less wear and tear on the condo and greater assurance that it will be in great shape when you arrive.
