Our stay at PH1 was so good, the condo was very clean & had everything that we could have wanted in the kitchen & even for the beach, plenty of beach towels, cooler, boogie board, beach chairs. The furniture was very clean & comfortable. We would definitely book this condo again if we weren't moving to Maui.

The location of this unit is so nice, easy access to EVERYTHING!! Sugar Beach Resort is awesome, you couldn't ask for a better beach & beautiful pool. To The Poole's, Thank you for sharing your condo!

The condo was great and the property is amazing. Sugar Beach is a great beach for swimming and walking and just a few steps from the property. Pool and hot tub were well maintained. Great Maui sunsets.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed your lovely condo on Maui. It had everything we needed, including beach towels, really nice beach chairs, etc. This was our 30th wedding anniversary, and nothing disappointed us, even though the weather ended up being kind of wonky toward the end of our stay. It was so relaxing to just walk down to the beach and take in the sites. I would totally recommend taking advantage of the Maui Canoe Club which is next door. What a great time we had paddling out and there were whales everywhere the entire time of our stay. We did check in after 5 pm, but it wasn't hard to figure out. The only suggestion I have is that when you are checking in after hours, it would be nice if the pool code was included in the paperwork. We didn't know we needed a different code to get into the pool and by the time we wanted to use it they were closed again. No big deal, as who wants to sit by the pool when you have the huge ocean to swim in. It certainly didn't keep us from having a fabulous time. Just a suggestion for the property management. Also, there is a wonderful Farmer's Market and Bakery across the street which is to die for. You should make that a must every morning. Fun to try new and different fruits and them to have fresh pastries is a bonus. There is also several great places to eat very close by. Oh and by the way, Kristi is wonderful to work with, so pleasant and very good at communicating. We will be back for sure.

Penthouse 1 Sugar Beach Resort is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

It was great to be met by someone after a quick call from the after hour’s check in phone. We appreciated the kindness and directions.

Open the door to this unit and everything is here, clean, fresh and good working order. No surprises. Walk out on the lanai and you will see the beach just as the photos show. The view and the air is amazing.

One of the best tourist information centers and some terrific little shops are right down stairs from this condo. The resort is clean and people are helpful and friendly. The items that make a home functional are all right there. The little red tea kettle, clocks on both sides of the king size bed were little touches that we really appreciated. Thanks for including the cable TV listing in your instructions information folder you thought of everything.

We were surprised how breezy the afternoons were, so watch your towel when you put it down. When renting a car think mid-size or compact, the streets and parking spaces are best suited for these cars.

We highly recommend Penthouse 1 and Sugar Beach Resort.

Comfortable, well equipped condo in a central location with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. We found it to be comfortable and well equipped. It was centrally located in Kihei and the views from the lanai were great.. both of the ocean and Haleakala. This is the best walking beach on Maui.. you can walk for miles... best to walk in the morning when it's cooler and there's some shade. The ocean out front is good for swimming (even though it's not the prettiest ocean water on the island and there are some rocks) and boogie boarding (& there are boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels in the condo). On a calm day you could even do some snorkeling and stand up paddling (again.. mornings are best). Take advantage of having 2 canoe clubs within walking distance... Kihei canoe club and Maui canoe club. Both take visitors. Check out their websites. Remember Kihei gets windy in the afternoon and plan your day around that. If the weather is calling for light and variable winds, it will be a good beach day. The trades, while cooling things off, get pretty blustery in the afternoon (we used to live in Kihei). Also, take advantage of the chicken and ribs for sale down the street (south on S. Kihei road)... look for the big truck that says "Huli- huli chicken & ribs". The ribs are the best anywhere. They're there on Wed. and Sat. till around 4pm. Ululani's shave ice is the best on the island... also down the street on S. Kihei Rd... next to the little farmers market (a good place to pick up a few things).

It was great having a washer/dryer in the condo... although a bit strange having the dryer vent into the shower. Make sure no one is taking a shower when running the dryer... haha.

The pool & Jacuzzi are nice.

Will definitely rent this place for our future stays on Maui.
