Overview

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This recently upgraded unit is a Sugar Beach rare gem with true Hawaiian flavor. The architecturally designed condo unit features maple cabinets, granite counters, beautiful floor tiles, ambiance lighting, island-style woodwork and built-in casework in the traditional Hawaiian plantation style. See the 'Live Aloha Suite' videos on Youtube for a tour of this tastefully built condominium.

Cast open the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors and take in Maui at it’s best. The soothing ocean waves and marvelous sunrises and sunsets remind you that you are in a very special place. Your Hawaiian experience is enhanced by the tropical décor offset by the palm trees’ gentle sway from the trade winds. This is a prime location condominium unit. It does not have the extended lanai wall, as do so many SBR condos. No extended wall means the unobstructed view is beautiful (see the video). The classically beautiful floor tile extends from the living area through the lanai for the feeling of an expanded living area. You are truly on the beach on Maui with all of the sights and smells you expect. Sit on your 4th floor private lanai and watch the Hawaiian lifestyle unfold before you. Enjoy the outrigger club races, snorkelers, beach walkers, swimmers, kite boarders, stand up paddlers and during the season, breaching whales. Or, sit in the living room to enjoy the same scene! This unit is truly “front and center”, yet amazingly private. One feels as if in a beach house without neighbors, owing in part to the hypnotic waves, tranquil setting and beautiful interiors.

Kihei is known for enjoying Maui’s better weather. Sugar Beach Resort (SBR) is located north of Kihei Town for that “get away from it all” feeling. Yet, it is close enough to Kihei and Wailea to sample their fares—entertainment and restaurants. West Maui with Lahaina is a picturesque, scenic, twenty-minute drive away. Neighboring Kealia Pond is a national refuge, which exhibits native flora and fauna. SBR is situated in a unique and rare setting.

THE LIVE ALOHA SUITE is tastefully designed and appointed, fresh, clean and lovingly cared for by the owners. The island artwork is authentic and the unit has more than sufficient necessities. Come stay in the best apartment in Sugar Beach Resort, on the loveliest and longest sandy beach on Maui. Your stay will be memorable. (managed on island by Maui Condo & Home, LLC)

About Douglas Sage

Doug and Starla Sage live in Edmonds Wa. For a time, in our early twenties, we lived on Maui and fell in love with the place. Doug owns a construction management firm in Seattle and Starla is retired due to a successful double lung transplant in 2011. We love to travel, and spend time in Pismo Beach, CA, La Conner and the San Juan Islands, WA, as well as Sugar Beach. We are looking forward to Doug's retirement when we can spend more time in our lovely Maui condo.

In the meantime, I volunteer at the UW Lung Transplant Center helping others cope with transplant issues. I also volunteer at my local food bank, and when on Maui, at a homeless soup kitchen, Hale Kau Kau. It is great to get to know the locals through my volunteering.

We have one grown son who has written and produced songs for the recording artist, Macklemore. Life is Good and we are very thankful!

Douglas Sage purchased this condo in 2006

Why Douglas Sage chose Kihei

We spent a lot of time deciding where to buy on Maui. We love West Maui, but felt it had become too crowded. South Maui, and specifically north Kihei, is much more relaxed. We love to walk and swim and have access to the many Maui amenities. Sugar Beach is 5 miles long, a tranquil swimming beach and centrally located. It met all our needs. Sugar Beach has air conditioning in the units, whereas most places do not. It is nice to have that option, at times it can get pretty hot. I also liked that it has a hot tub and lovely grounds. Many guests return year after year. So much to do, so little time. You have to come back!

What makes this condo unique

Doug wanted to upgrade the condo, and while I was waiting for my transplant, he hired a well known Seattle architect to add something special to the place. I was a bit worried as I didn't have the energy to give any input. So, when I saw it after the remodel, I was blown away! Isn't it nice to walk into something you didn't expect and be thrilled?! We're sure you'll be thrilled too!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Doug and Starla, Thank you for the fruit and goodie basket, what a nice surprise and welcome to your beautiful condo. You have certainly done a wonderful job of updating and decorating. We are sure that it is the nicest condo at Sugar Beach and feel spoiled.

Hopefully the next time we go to Maui, it will be available. Again, Thank you, Dick and Susan (this response from a repeat guest)

What a location!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to wind down on the end of our vacation. I probably sat on the lanai half my time just listening to waves crashing. The kitchen had everything you would need. I loved the time at the pool which had a shady spot most of the day. The beach was quiet with very few visitors other than those staying in the resort (which really sold me). The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. I wish we could have stayed longer because it was so relaxing.

Perfect getaway location for a Babymoon!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of August/early September 2014 and absolutely loved every moment of our vacation. The resort is on a beautiful, quiet beach, has a nice clean pool as well, and is only a 5-10 minute drive from delicious beach side restaurants. Being 7 months pregnant made me nervous about how well I would be sleeping, but with air conditioning and a very comfortable king bed I had no issues. The condo is beautifully decorated, with a very nice kitchen space which makes cooking meals "at home" all that more easy. We usually ate breakfast at the condo, and then ate out for either lunch or dinner. My husband enjoyed the communal BBQ pit where he grilled us some local fish while making friends with others also enjoying the sugar beach experience. The condo came equipped with more than we even needed, including boogie boards, snorkel masks, beach chairs and tons of extra kitchen gadgets if you're into fancy cooking. We would definitely stay here again, and recommend this well-kept, beautiful, and clean suite to anyone looking to get away for a relaxing and refreshing vacation in the sun.

Perfect Vacation Memories!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Doug and Starla,
We have been a guest in your condo many times and we just wanted to say thank you again. We felt so fortunate to find such a wonderful place to stay and we have returned ever since. Your condo now brings memories of many perfect vacations. We love the spectacular view and listening to the sound of the ocean. The updates you continue to make to your condo have made our stays very special. Your unit has always been comfortable, clean, and well appointed. Sugar Beach Resort has so much to offer. We love the swimming pool, hot tub, beach, and location. We look forward to making our next trip. Thank you again.

Lovely oceanfront condo

Doug & Starla,
Thank you for letting us stay in this very nice,centrally located condo in Sugar beach resort.The kitchen and bathroom sink updates are very well done and the view is just like the pictures show.Cleanliness of the unit needs attention as well as the shower stall/toilet area.The sleeper couch and rug in the living area are grubby and need a good clean.The shower was disgusting with loads of mildew at the base of the shower,we wore flip-flops to shower!!!.The toilet handle was almost coming of,but Doug did have that taken care of right away,thank you.
The bed was hard as a rock and some new pillows might be advised.
Had a good stay none the less.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Anita, for your candid review. We take negative comments very seriously. We do have problems getting good cleaning people on Maui, unfortunately. Our management company tells us it is a high turnover job. We have gone through three different cleaners in the past year, so my apologies on the shower. The sofa is cleaned very regularly, the problem lies in the heavy use of suntan lotion, I will call our furniture cleaner to take care of it. The small area rug you mentioned has a recent application of Scotchguard, so that does make it feel different from what you have at home. We purchased the bed a couple of years ago and have never had any complaints. We have several return guests who stay for months at time and like the bed. So, I think it depends on what you are used to. Thank you on the heads up on the pillows, we will have them replaced pronto. Mahalo for your review, as we cannot be there on a regular basis, we appreciate feedback from our guests.

Tranquil, Peaceful, A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Doug & Starla for sharing your home away from home at Sugar Beach Resort. Our 10 night stay was wonderful. Your Condo was exceptional from the cleanliness to the most awesome view ever! Very central to all areas of Maui. The groundskeepers do a fantastic job as well keeping the grounds immaculate. Pool was great. Walking along the quiet beach with its soft, silky sand in the mornings was therapeutic. So much to see from the lanai every day too. The upgrades in the Condo you have done make it very "homey". It was a pleasure completing the arrangements through VRBO with you. No hassles or problems whatsoever. Thank you again. I sincerely hope we can come to Maui and stay at your Condo again.

Perfect place for a week on Maui. The location, layout & furnishings were exceptional, & the beach was right there. Our only complaints were: the surf was so close that the door had to be closed to hear much else, & that we got tired of saying "Wow" every time we walked in the door.
