WHAT A FIND!
This nicely renovated condominium has a view over the resort's beautiful grounds to the ocean. Good architecture and concrete construction keep the units in this well managed resort quiet and private. Free internet service through Time Warner. Great new 55' LG Smart TV.
Ideally located in sunny Kihei and is perfect for a couple or small family.
Photos show the most recent renovations.
Relax at the resort or try some of the many great places and things to do nearby.
There are so many fun things to do but here are a few of our favorites:
* While still on mainland time (the first couple of days) when you wake up in the dark, take WARM clothes and drive up to the top of Haleakala (allow 50 minutes) to see the sunrise from the top of this extinct volcano. You can even arrange in advance to bike down the volcano.
* Good beaches, snorkeling, and other ocean activities, the Ocean Centre, golf, groceries, shopping, and restaurants are all close by.
* There is a beautiful oceanfront municipal golf course at Waehu (good value) and also some good restaurants and shopping on the airport (north) side of the island, as well as a Swap Meet on Saturday mornings (great place to get fresh produce and souvenirs). A drive to shop down Front Street in historic Lahaina (on the West side) and see the pageant (Ulalena) at the Arts Centre is well worth while (each of these is about 40 minutes drive).
* Get out on the water with a charter catamaran snorkel trip to Molikini and Turtle Town and (in winter months) watch the whales along the way.

I am a Calgary Mom with children who love Maui.
Kyra Hanson purchased this condo in 2002
This unit became available from a lady we had met at the pool over the years.
It is well located so that we are not bothered by traffic noise and we can see kids running on the soft grass,
coming from the pool or barbequing down below. It is on the B side, so it does not get too hot in the afternoon. We have always liked the layout and when we renovated, we extended the breakfast bar and added other personal touches that our guests appreciate.
Our unit is very well equipped beach themed holiday home. The floors are Pergo and easy to keep clean. We just installed a beautiful new tile shower and pebble tile entrance flooring,
We have nice new covers for the beds and the appliances are quite new. There is a new 55 ' Smart TV.
The complex has the biggest private pool in Kihei, weight room, outdoor shuffle board,
croquet, putting green, tennis court and excellent seaside park for watching sunsets.
It is close to good beaches, shopping and restaurants.
The people staying at the Maui Sunset always seem to be friendly and in holiday mood.
This was a perfect family holiday. The condo was equipped with everything we could need.
Our kids loved playing barefoot on the on the soft grass and watching the Disney videos when they
had a little too much sun. The floors were easy to keep clean. The decoration in the condo matches
the Maui holiday feeling we had. After a week it felt likehome and noone wanted to leave. We will be back.
My friends were looking for great weather in a Hawaiian resort,oceanview,close to beach, big pool, nicely decorated with Big screen TV,wifi,clean and in a great location this Maui Sunset condo fits the bill and was even more . The location was great to venture out for restaurants, golf ,farmers markets & Lahaina. Pictures are very accurate Great owners to work with. Highly recommended!
We loved the Maui Sunset resort, and this unit in particular. The 3 futons were great for our teen boys, who don't like sharing beds. Having two bathrooms was a must, but the one-bedroom pricing made it affordable. The ocean view is somewhat distant and angled, but we enjoyed watching the kids playing on the putting green below. Noise was not a problem except in the bedroom when loud neighbors were talking on their way to the elevator. The additional sink in the bedroom made getting ready very convenient while my husband was in the shower. It was helpful to have the washer and dryer right in the unit. Everything was very clean and in good repair; the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our Costco meals, avoiding the overpriced restaurants. We enjoyed playing tennis at the resort, though the workout room left much to be desired. The location made exploring the entire island very convenient. Each evening we walked out to the beach to watch the sunset and chat with other friendly folks.
We have stayed at Maui Sunset twice before and really like the place. Not this unit. The owners themselves were great as far as the rental process went. The unit presents itself as a family condo, not a rental condo. The furnishings appear to be mostly garage/estate sale finds so there is no unity in the furnishings. The lanai table is old and beat up, however the chairs are new. Sadly, the chairs don't fit the table size-wise so it we couldn't eat outside comfortably. The linens are cheap and mis-matched. Two closet shelves in the master bedroom are taken up with stained pillows. So glad that we brought our own! The curtain in the bedroom is sheer so the outside light shines right through, making it difficult to sleep. The ceiling fan in the front room either doesn't work or needs a battery. There is a nice tv, however the rest of the electronics are junk - not what I would expect in a rental unit. There was an array of mis-matched dishes, glasses, and silverware. The dishwasher did a very poor job cleaning the dishes and needs replacing. Cleanliness is absolutely lacking in this unit, evidenced by ants all around the microwave. I would not recommend renting this unit to anyone.
The location was in the middle of Maui, could travel anywhere in a short time. Condo had everything you needed and up-to-date. Would definitely return next year.
My husband and I have been to Maui numerous times and this is the first time that we have been there in January. We have been there during the summer and fall months. We went there to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. We were fortunate enough to find this lovely and comfortable one bedroom, two bath condo. It had everything we needed to make our stay quite enjoyable. It was our home away from home for six days. The owners have done a great job in maintaining their condo. We would love to stay there again. Also, the grounds and the pool at the Maui Sunset are also well-maintained and the location is perfect to view the wonderful sunsets. We can't wait to return!
We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at the Hanson’s condo during our first visit to Maui in early March. Great condo - good facilities - wonderful location and great view! Truly all the comforts of home. The condo was clean, very nicely decorated, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. We especially enjoyed the convenience of the in-house washer and dryer. The setting is truly beautiful. We were able to watch spectacular sunsets and the whales from our balcony. Wow! The grounds were immaculate with ample parking, a nice pool and excellent BBQ facilities (plus a host of other amenities) - a great place to meet people.
The owner and his family are super nice and a pleasure to deal with and we would recommend this unit unreservedly. Five stars for value! Thanks again for a wonderful stay
