Lovely place for a small family

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to judge accommodation on the Internet but I can reassure you that this is a lovely place to stay. We had 5 people so used all 3 bedrooms (it can also be separated into one 2-bedroom and one 1-bedroom). All 3 bedrooms have their own bathroom and there are 2 kitchens and eating areas as well as a BBQ and sitting area out the back. The owners are very friendly and responded quickly to all of our requests. (Not that there were many and they were only small things). It was a really comfortable place and right across the road from the beach and great views!

Great location, clean, and well kept property.

  • 5 of 5

The house's location near the beach is its best feature and what we miss most about our stay! Sugar Beach is about 100ft. from the front door and we were able to enjoy our morning coffee on the very clean and peaceful shoreline, and also spent hours swimming and snorkeling once the sun came up. The waves at this section of Sugar Beach are very gentle and there are some fish and urchins to see in the water, although this isn't a great location for seeing marine life up close. We were able to see whales breaching several miles offshore, which was very exciting for our family. The property owners also keep a set of beach chairs for guest’s use, which is a nice amenity.

We chose this property because of its central location in south Maui, its proximity to a beach, good food in nearby Kihei, and our need to sleep six people. The house had three good-sized bedrooms with attached baths (was actually two units connected by a door), was clean on arrival, the kitchen was well equipped, and air conditioning units were in each bedroom. Parking was off-street and near the entrance to the house, the backyard was landscaped and well maintained, and each unit had a private gas BBQ grill. There is a community laundry room on site with a good-sized washing machine and dryer. This is a multi-unit property, but our neighbors were quiet and friendly. We saw the owners a couple times (they do not live on site) and they were friendly and responsive to our requests.

We were pleasantly surprised by how private and quiet the property felt despite the nearby S. Kihei Road, which runs along the beach and has some traffic during the day. There is an ABC store and Ululani shaved ice store within walking distance, as well as the boutique Sugar Beach Bake Shop which serves amazing pies. A Safeway and Target are a short drive from the house, and there are many excellent restaurants within 5-10 minutes of driving.

It would have been nice if the dining area was larger, as it was a challenge to fit five adults and a child around the table. There was also no AC in the room with the dining table, and this area warmed up when we cooked at home. Be aware that the walls are also thin and noise travels easily between rooms and echoes on the tile floor, so you might be able to hear the other occupants.

However, these inconveniences seem minor when you consider the house’s great location and other features. We would be very likely to stay at this house again on our next trip to Maui.

Great place, right across from the beach.

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with several friends. We loved the location of the house, it was right across from the beach and walking distance from a abc store and bakery/coffee shop. As far as the house itself, it was wonderful to have 3 bathrooms for getting ready and having privacy. The bedrooms were a king bed, a queen and a full. The one downside was that there isn't a ton of general gathering space inside, but the backyard made up for it. There was a large deck with outdoor couches, chairs, chaise lounges and a table for eating. We spent a lot of time back there. Overall a great place that we would love to return to.

Wonderful TIme

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Maui for Christmas thanks to Mike and Ceceila and the great accommodations they provided. This property is beautiful and well maintained. The house is located right across the street from the beach. It was great to be able to sit outside on the deck and enjoy the weather and the stars at night. Mike and Ceceila are wonderful people and made sure everything was perfect. Thank for a great vacation.

This place was exactly what we were looking for. Very clean, quiet, lots of room we had both suites available thus we had a 3 bedroom with 2 stocked kitchens which was perfect. We enjoyed the back deck and loved visiting with other residents in the adjoining rental homes. It is across the street from the beach which we enjoyed everyday for walking, watching sunsets and sunbathing. Swimming however not as great as water very murky and rocky, we would just drive up to Kapalua bay or down to the Big beach for swimming as everything is within a 1/2 hour drive. Not much if you are from Canada where driving is a constant.

Cecila and Mike are great and look after all your needs! Thank you for a great vacation! If we decide to come back to Maui this place is on our to stay list for sure!!!

Great place to spend a week on MAUI.

  • 4 of 5

Property was clean and well maintained. Just a couple of suggestions for a better stay..... make sure each unit has a coffee maker, larger pots and pans for cooking, and maybe hampers for towels. Both Mike & Cecelia were so nice and helpful. Looking forward to coming back. MAHOLO

Perfect for those who enjoy majestic sunsets from your front door or the privacy of your bedroom. Wake up to a stroll on the beach as the sun rises over Haleakala, another treasured sight.
