Our Condo is well equipped and gets frequent updates. The owners typically come and use the Condo two times per year, so we get to manage the updates and improvements by personally seeing and using the condo. We like the condo to be well maintained, clean, operational, and very comfortable.

Staying in a ground floor unit allows you to simply slide your lanai door open and extend your living space out on to the grass. This is so convenient, especially when traveling with kids who love to get out doors and play without being confined to a balcony. Our units prime location allows you the flexibility to pull the lounge chair out on the grass or sink the beach chair and your toes into the warm sand. Located just steps away from the 'heart' of the Sugar Beach Resort, you will find the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, putting green and 6 BBQ grills right at your disposal!

It is easy to see why the Sugar Beach Resort is a top rated property to spend your Hawaiian Vacation.

The Sugar Beach Resort is situated right in the center of the Island on the outskirts of Kihei. Located on the longest stretch of sandy beach on the Island of Maui (approx. 5 miles long) and just a quick 10 mile drive south of the Maui Airport will have you at the ocean's doorstep in no time flat. Being centrally located allows quick and easy access to other parts of the Island. Just a 5 minute drive to Maalaea Harbor. About 25 minutes west to Lahaina and 30 minutes west to Kaanapali. Head east, the other direction and in just 5 minutes you will be in the heart of Kihei and 15 minutes will have you in the resort area of Wailea.

Although our family enjoys the evening sunsets and dinners cooked at the BBQ grill there are many great restaurants on the Island to choose from along with many great activities to fill your vacation with wonderful Hawaiian memories.

About Gary & Kara Moore

My wife and I first met in Waikiki while on vacation. This immediately made Hawaii a special place for us. Our family lives in Littleton, Colorado just on the outskirts of Denver. We are lucky to have some great travel benefits due to my employment as an Airline Pilot, which allow our family to go to Maui several times a year. We normally take 2 annual vacations over in Maui spending typically 2 weeks at a time (1 month per year) over in Maui, and rent our condo out the rest of the time. We have 3 boys who consider Maui their second home. It is always a joy for our family to relax on the beach, play at the pool and to enjoy the many sights and activities that Maui has to offer. We hope that we are able to share our little corner of the world with you and your family. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance to you on planning your next vacation to Maui. Aloha - Gary & Kara, Littleton, CO.

Gary & Kara Moore purchased this condo in 2001

Why Gary & Kara Moore chose Maui

Maui is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Working as an Airline Pilot I have had the unique chance to travel and stay at many places in the world, and have always found the Hawaiian Islands and Maui in particular to be a great place to go. Maui offers some of the nicest beaches of all of the Islands. They frequently say 'Maui No Ka 'Oi' which simple means Maui is the best! We had stayed several times at the Sugar Beach Resort and really liked the location and the friendly atmosphere we found there. You can't get any closer to the beach and water! It is only 15 steps from the Lanai of our ground floor Unit to the white sands of Sugar Beach! Imagine having your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail just a few steps from the beachfront. Our beachfront is sandy and is great for sunbathing, swimming, boogie boarding, snorkeling, building sand castles or simply walking the shoreline. We have 5-miles of soft white sand for walking or jogging right in front of our Resort. Our Family goes to Maui 2 to 3 times per year, which allows us to make sure our Condo is 1st Class. We are constantly upgrading and updating our Condo to make sure it would be rated as an A+ Unit We receive from feedback from our guests who compare our Unit with others at the Sugar Beach Resort, and it is very common for guests to write us and comment that our Unit was the “best equipped and the nicest unit they have stayed at while vacationing at the Sugar Beach Resort”.

What a beautiful condo. Everything you need right at your fingertips.

Our family loved it. Thank you Moore Family!! The beach is just steps away, the view is glorious. Snorkeling sites were close by, shopping was easy to get to as well as restaurants and of course shaved ice. What a perfect place to spend a vacation.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

I can't think of any criticisms. The beach was within steps of the back doo and the condo is very well stocked (boogie boards, beach chairs, big spray, sunscreen, reading materials, small cooler, etc). The sunset from the grassy area just off the Lanai is breathtaking. Convenience is an understatement. Less thsn 20 minute drive to get to Costco/WalMart, Mama's Fish House, the airport, Maui Ocean Center and the Ma'alaea Harbos Shops (gifts, dining, drinks). I would not hesitate one minute to stay here again or recommend it to a friend....in fact, I have already recommended this resort and this specific room to two friends and a family member.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the Moore's for sharing your condo with us. The view is breathtaking and being able to sit a listen to the waves was so relaxing. The kitchen was fully stocked. We enjoyed the beach chairs and boogie boards. The condo was conveniently located and there were so many activities nearby. We are so happy that we stayed at Sugar Beach. We are already talking about next time, and we definitely plan on staying in this condo again. Thank you again!

Fantastic location, literally steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to Maui for our combined 5th Wedding Anniversary & Baby-moon, and we decided to stay at the Sugar Beach resort. The condo is located in Kihei, which in our estimation is on the quieter southern coast of Maui. The unit was very clean and spacious when we arrived, and the key code on the door was a nice touch, as we didn't need to worry about remembering to bring keys with us, or key cards to get into the room. There is a nice sized pool and jacuzzi right near the room, which was very nice for the days that we didn't feel like sitting on the beach (which weren't many). Speaking of the beach, by far the best feature of this condo is that it is literally steps from the beach. It is a ground floor unit, so right off the lanai is a very small grass area, then the small dunes, then the beach. Every morning, my wife and I would wake up extra early and watch the early morning skies over the ocean from the lanai while eating our breakfast. It was also extremely convenient having the condo be accessible directly from the beach, as it allowed us to make quick stops back in the room for snacks, drinks, etc., without having to walk around the building to access the stairs/front door.

Despite being more low key, there was still plenty to do within a short drive (shopping, Road to Hana, Haleakala Sunrise/Sunset tour, Ocean Vodka Distillery, etc.). There is also a fantastic new Safeway right down the road with everything (along with other little shops for the odds and ends that you may have forgotten at home). There are also a number of great snorkeling tours with a few great destinations right off the southern shore.

I would HIGHLY recommend this unit to anyone looking for a more low-key relaxing stay while on Maui, rather than the hustle and bustle of West Maui. This will be our first stop next time we come back.

Sugar Beach condo

  • 5 of 5

My family members stayed in this great 1st floor condo. It was in a great location, close enough to Kihei for a quick run to the stores or restaurants. The beach is wonderful for swimming & walking, and just a few steps from the front door of the condo. The pool, hot tub and grills are right around the corner from the unit. The kitchen had good quality of everything needed. This unit was definitely the better of the 2 I rented.

Ground floor is the way to go!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful unit to stay in. Walking right out the slider to the grass with the water just beyond was a great treat. The unit was stocked with all the necessities, including boogie boards and beach towels. The bathroom has been updated and is so pleasant and comfortable. The appliances are in good shape. Washer and dryer are welcome appliances! The ambiance is definitely family oriented and very comfortable.
