Maalaea Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

This is a beachfront upgraded unit--a Sugar Beach gem--with true Hawaiian flavor. The architecturally designed condo unit features maple cabinets, granite counters, beautiful Italian floor tiles, ambiance lighting, island-style woodwork, built-in casework in the traditional Hawaiian plantation style and a comforting small pebble tile shower. 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.

Sugar Beach Resort is a "green minded" community. A significant portion of our electrical is generated from rooftop solar panels. Our beautiful grounds are watered from an on-site well to conserve the precious water. Our pools are heated by solar thermal energy. You might not notice the differences, but they are there because we love the wonder of natural Hawaii and strive to keep it that way!

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 Grammy winning recording artist, Macklemore. Life is Good and we are very thankful!

Douglas Sage purchased this condo in 2006

Why Douglas Sage chose Maui

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)

Loved this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. It had everything you need, home away from home. Comfortable bed, nice decor, full service kitchen, washer and dryer plus anything you need for the beach. The view of the beach off the lanai is outstanding. The grounds are pretty and well maintained.

The owner was quickly available for questions we had and made everything very easy for us. Would love to stay here again.

Live Aloha Suite, No Ka Oi

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 2 weeks in the Live Aloha Suite. Condo was very clean, nicely decorated and furnished. The bed was very comfortable and location provided a spectacular view of the beach and grounds-picture taking from the condo was awesome ! This is my 8th rental at Sugar Beach Resort and this condo rates in the top 2. Since my last stay, services have improved -you can rent water sports equipment (i.e. paddle boards) on site at the office, as well as, book other activities. Beach is not crowded like other beaches on the island and one can enjoy running, walking, casually strolling on 5 miles of beach morning, noon, and early evening. It is relatively quiet property overall and grounds are immaculate. There is a small sandwich (Dina's Sand Witch) on site where you can have lunch or dinner, as well as, adult drinks. Customers are both visitors and locals with fun conversations and great service. Doug Sage is very responsive to inquiries and provides basic needs for renters. Live Aloha Suite and Sugar Beach is a great place for a relaxing vacation!

Beautiful condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Two of us stayed here for a week and truly loved the place! There was nothing lacking and we had everything we needed for a week in paradise. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking which we did quite a bit, and really enjoyed our meals and drinks on the lanai with a gorgeous view of the ocean and beach. The king sized bed was super comfortable, so much that I wanted to bring it home with us! Love the mattress. We also really loved this location. I have been to Maui once and stayed in Ka'anapali. I really preferred Kihei for the location and the vibe. The concierge down near the office was very helpful in booking some activities for us. Her recommendations were spot on. Thanks Mary! And thank you to the Sage's for providing such a warm and comfortable home!!

Ocean paradise

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 2 weeks in August 2015 and it was a tropical home away from home. To be right on the water, listening to the waves every night and day, with gorgeous sunsets was incredible. The unit is nicely updated with everything one would need for a Maui getaway. I have stayed in Lahaina, Kihei and Kaanapali before, but I much prefer this location - especially to be on a long, walkable beach (probably one of the best in Maui) in a quiet area with easy access to everything was really convenient. The bed was super, super comfortable and Doug, the owner was friendly, helpful and accommodating. I will definitely be back to Sugarbeach! :)
