Maalaea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our condo is ideally located with the best view of Molikini and Kaho'olawe. In the winter, there isn't a better place to see the humpback whales and their babies. They come close to shore for birthing. There are always trade winds blowing to ensure a pleasant climate, even in the summertime.

We pride ourselves on having an A+ condo, featuring a king sized bed. We only allow 1 couple per stay. Our furniture is comfortable with reclining sofa and chair.

We have free internet service and free long distance phone service to the mainland and Canada.

We have 'Smart TVs,' so bring your username and password to Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, Vudu, etc, for those evenings that you just want to relax in the condo.

Hope to see you soon in Paradise! Aloha! John and Kathy

About John and Kathy Willis

My wife, Kathy, and I retired to Maui and lived at Sugar Beach Resort. In 2008 we purchased our home, very close by. We still spend time at Sugar Beach, visiting with friends and enjoying the beach front.

John and Kathy Willis purchased this condo in 1994

Why John and Kathy Willis chose Maui

We chose Sugar Beach Resort after visiting other properties on vacation while windsurfing. We found Sugar Beach Resort to be perfect for my sport, now kite boarding and my wife's sport, tennis. There are lovely courts in Wailea and new public courts, 10 minutes away. My wife is also Queen of her own chapter of the Red Hat Society.

What makes this condo unique

You will find everything that you need, while at Sugar Beach Resort. We have a Sandwich Shop with full bar, putting green, pool and hot tub, not to mention the sauna. There is an ABC Store nearby. We are close to all the fun spots, such as miniature golf, Aquarium, and golf courses. Everything you need is right here!

Mahalo John & Kathy,

Another great month spent in your wonderful condo! The whales have been amazing. Having family staying in the resort as well is terrific. We have met so many new friends, as well around the barbecue & pool area. Can hardly wait for next year! Thanks so much for the banana loaf & bananas. Hope to see Red Hatters next year for sure.

Take care & all the best in 2013!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

"What a view!", the 1st thing we said when walking in the door, amazed at the blue of the ocean & the white sandy beach that stretched for miles. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch & supper on the balcony as we scanned the ocean, protected from occasional wind & a bit of rain. No whales at this time of year, but saw the sea turtle's head popping up occasionally as it swam in the waters near the condo! We loved having beach chairs, noodles & a cooler provided - a definite plus for us as we prefer to be on the beach & playing in the waves. Very well equipped condo & lovely décor. Excellent contact with owner pre-trip & for a query during our stay. Would love to stay there again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo! It's very comfortable and the view is amazing. Lots of spectacular sunsets! We didn't have to use the A/C; just the fans. The ocean breezes and sounds of the waves were very relaxing. The kitchen was well equipped, and the bed was quite comfortable! We had lots of nice long walks on the beach. I would definitely come back again; John the owner was very helpful and nice. There was even a small loaf of banana bread when we arrived!

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything I hoped for. The unit was immaculate, up-to-date, and all in perfect working order. The owners took great care to leave contact information, and even to call to make sure all was well. Every conceivable amenity was provided, including the world's most comfortable bed. There were no surprises: the photo shown is exactly the view from the condo's balcony.

It was lovely to spend evenings on the balcony over dinner and wine, with great conversation and the sound of waves crashing. That same sound lulled us to sleep each night.

For disabled visitors such as I, there were temporary ramps available for the 3 steps up to the unit's doorway. I found it easiest to leave my wheelchair in the car and use canes in the condo and around the complex. While swimming pool and spa were easily accessible, even I had no problem hobbling down to the surf, parking the canes, and swimming out into the glassy Pacific Ocean.

Sugar Beach Resort has a great, unspoiled location near canoeing, camping, and other activities. It's just 10 minutes away from a marina for snorkeling and diving tours. I took 2 "snuba" dives (a modified form of scuba) and found myself at arm's length from a sea turtle!

I would enthusiastically recommend this stay to a friend, and I hope to return again very soon.

Fabulous Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very clean and well maintained. The view is fabulous! Though the condo is designated for 2 people, the owners were generous to allow the three of us to stay. They provided a futon for our son to sleep on. We appreciated the wi-fi, extra towels, safe, and even homemade banana bread. The central location is a good for exploring Maui. We highly recommend it.
