From the lanai enjoy sights of turtles, whales (in season), canoes, and the West Maui Mountains. Snorkel, bodysurf, boogie board, swim, and canoe right out in front of the condo.

Sugar Beach Resort has its own webcam!

Sugar Beach Resort has lush, well-maintained grounds and one of the nicer swimming pools & BBQ areas in Kihei, along with a Jacuzzi, wading pool, sauna, sundeck and putting green, all in full view of the ocean. Many guests choose to use the oceanside BBQs and dine at the outdoor tables, meeting old & new friends.

Book activities and rent snorkel gear and boogie boards at Maui Sights & Treasures which is located on the premises. Dina's Sand Witch Shop serves great food & drinks.

About The Owner

We live on an island in the Puget Sound, and so we feel right at home in Maui's island setting. The peaceful pace and friendly atmosphere really appeal to us. For many years we had been staying at Sugar Beach Resort and are thrilled to own a condo there. Our goal is to make it your favorite home away from home.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Kihei

You just can't find a place closer to the water than a Sugar Beach oceanfront unit. The view is unparalleled and you have front row seating for whale watching much of the year, and turtles all year.

What makes this condo unique

Sugar Beach is nearly 6 miles of white sand, and wonderful for walking, jogging or beachcombing. The north end is never crowded, so you really feel like you have your own piece of paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guestbook in the condo:

"What a wonderful condo! We loved your care & attention to detail. Incredible sunsets, unforgettable whale watching from the lanai, wonderful beach doesn't get much better.

Thank you for your accurate description & it was even better than described."

Thank you-thank you,

John & Eileen

What an amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

Where do we begin. We have been to a few other VRBO places that were not like the pictures. This is what you see and more. The place has everything you need. The bed is comfortable and the shower has pressure that is awesome. Having the washer and dryer lets you pack lighter. The central location allows you to hit multiple locations in a day. Safeway and Costco are close. The BBQ facilities are great. The beach and pool rock. Remember their are grocery carts available to unload your groceries and bags when you get there (base of the stairwell). April is a great owner. She is communicating with you right away if you have questions (as stupid as we had). Thanks guys for a great place

Gorgeous view, comfortable and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. The location is direct ocean front, with just the right amount of privacy, and we appreciated the recent improvements made by the owners to give guests a happy vacation experience. Excellent aloha vibe!

Great beach and nice sunsets. Needs some attention inside.

  • 2 of 5

It's hard to find beachfront condos and we really enjoyed the location. The beach is very swimmer friendly with hardly any shorebreak. But inside the condo was sad and neglected, with a worn out sofa and a single wicker chair that isn't comfortable for even the smaller adults. We had stormy weather for several days but we could not ride out the bad weather in the condo.

But other than the uncomfortable furniture the condo was well supplied with all you could need for your stay. The pool and grounds are nice and very well attended to.

Great value! Central location and home base for exploring Maui

  • 5 of 5

Private balcony with great views. Comfortable king bed. Kitchen has all your essentials and bathroom has hot water and good water pressure. Not sure what else you need for a Hawaiian adventure. Get out of your room and off the resort and go see the island. This place is centrally located and a great value.

Great ocean view

  • 3 of 5

I have to be honest in writing this review. There were pros and cons to the property. The location was good, close by to about everything. The view was awesome and there is a beach and pool area. The lanai furniture was good. The air conditioning was effective. The cons, depending on your expectations and preferences-- Sugar Beach condos are older, as many in Maui probably are. The layout of the units are such that the bedroom window is so high you have no view, plus they needed washing. Some units may be more updated then others. Ours was not. I would not describe it as "Deluxe." Sugar Beach is rather narrow, good for hiking and one can hike a long ways, but we went to other beaches to sunbath and there are lots fairly close. We did have an enjoyable stay.

Owner's Response: Marsha, thanks so much for your review! In our experience, Sugar Beach Resort is an excellent value for direct ocean front condos. One can find high-end accommodations elsewhere on Maui without even a view of the ocean, and pay up to 4 times as much per night, or a studio with a Murphy bed which has a parking lot view and the beach located across the street, for nearly our nightly rate. When you find the perfect Maui accommodations that meet all of your criteria at a comparable nightly rate, please do let us know.
