New Tommy Bahama bedroom furniture with Cal King Ultra Pillow top mattress, 600 thread count sheets and bedding, plush bath towels, new 47 inch HD LED TV in living room and new sofa sleeper couch with a 7” mattress.

In the kitchen we stock spices, foil, plastic wrap, zip lock bags, trash bags, and dish soap among others. We provide vases for those beautiful Hawaiian flowers purchased roadside.

The view across the ocean and down the south Maui coast is phenomenal. Sunsets are just amazing. Watch the water change from blue to pink even while you are cooking. It fills the room.

Sugar Beach is in an ideal spot. It is centrally located in the middle of Maui allowing for equal drive times to Wailea in south Maui or Lahaina in west Maui. It is the perfect location for somebody who wants to be on the water but wants to see all of Maui. Rest, Relax and enjoy Sugar Beach or wake up and head off to Hana or Haleakala National Park, the quaint town of Lahaina, or the Nakalele Blow Hole. You can see all of Maui with Sugar Beach as your starting point.

Sugar Beach Resort consists of two buildings, the Mill Building and Plantation Building. Sugar Beach #PH19 is located in the Mill Building. All condos are privately owned although there is a check in office on property with a receptionist for your convenience.

Dina's Sandwich Shoppe is located on the grounds and is a great excuse to not cook. There is a gift shop, a Massage Therapist on site and Concierge/Activities Desk, as well.

We are located at the North end of Kihei on 5 miles of white sandy beach. Sugar Beach Resort is located at the base of the West Maui Mountains, right on the shore of beautiful Maalaea Bay. The resort is somewhat secluded, situated in between Kihei and the village of Maalaea. The location of the resort provides a perfect balance, offering oceanfront activities and atmosphere, as well as stunning views of both Haleakala and the West Maui Mountains.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped with a pool, Jacuzzi, dry sauna, putting green and gas BBQ's.

The Sugar Beach Resort grounds occupy about 3 acres of oceanfront real-estate in the middle of a long crescent of sandy beach on Maui's south shore. #PH19 has an ocean front view, with stunning vistas of the Pacific Ocean sunsets every evening.

In-room free high-speed internet and printer!

Free parking!

About James & Lori Warden

Listing Number #496480 and enjoy water sports with our teenage daughters in tow. We also like to scuba dive, off road, cycle, wakeboard, surf, motocross and Auto Racing to name a few hobbies. We plan on saving Golf for when we retire...

James & Lori Warden purchased this condo in 2013

Why James & Lori Warden chose Maui

The purchase of this property was just the next natural step in our adventures. We were married on Maui many moons ago and this is our favorite island. We had to have this penthouse at Sugar Beach after sitting on the lanai, the views are amazing!

What makes this condo unique

There are very few Maui Condo Resorts where you are literally 50' from the ocean with a 5 mile stretch of sandy beach. The views range from Makenna to Maalaea Bay with Molok'i and Lanai islands in the distance.

Amazing Condo Amazing View !

  • 5 of 5

The owners went out of the way to provide every conceivable amenities a traveler could need. The bathroom even has q-tips, cough medicine and Advil. The kitchen was stocked better then my own home with spices, zip locks and sweeteners . We loved the condo and the view was breath taking. The unit was nicely decorated and very clean and organised. We love Sugar Beach Resort and has now become our favorite place to stay. The resort being centrally located made our day trips perfect. ! The info we received before leaving for our trip was of great value and very much appreciated. We really appreciated the phone call during our stay to make sure everything was great ! We will be back and cant thank you enough for making this visit our best ever.

Best Condo at Sugar Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stay at Sugar Beach Resort each time we come to Maui .This is the first time we have used VRBO. PH19 was the best condo by far. It was beautifully decorated and the furnishings very comfortable. It was well stocked and everything looked new. We really appreciated the box of candy that was left for us when we arrived. Since we didn't rent a car we loved that the Farmer's Market and the ABC store was within walking distance. And be sure to check out the Sugar Beach Bakery next to the market.!! We ordered from the Sand Witch at Sugar beach every day, We will be sure to rent PH19 when we come back.

We wouldn't have changed a thing!

  • 5 of 5

My new husband and I were lucky enough to enjoy James and Lori's condo for almost a week, and it was a little slice of heaven. We first booked our stay in April after reading all of the fantastic reviews, and I have to say, yes, they were all true! The kitchen really is that well-stocked, and the bed really is that comfortable! Also, the view off of the lanai is practically indescribable. It was beautiful. We loved the location of the condo in Kihei, because it was central to pretty much everything we wanted to explore on the island. James and Lori were fantastic to work with, and checked in with us a few times before we left and while we were there to make sure we were taken care of.

For those future travelers out there, we recommend heading down to the Sugar Beach rental office and renting snorkel equipment. It fit really well and was reasonably priced. Then head to Black Rock in Kaanapali, and snorkel with sea turtles! Definitely one of our favorite adventures. Other great things to check out that are near by: The beach right in front of the condo is great for body surfing, Coconut's Fish Café had the best fish tacos I've ever had, Maui Brewing Company was fantastic and has about 30 different beers on tap. They also have food trucks everyday. Wailea Beach was the most beautiful beach with the whitest stand. Also, Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice was really good and just a walk down the beach. Wow, I think I could go on forever and this is making me really miss our time there...

We wouldn't have changed a thing about our experience, and we would absolutely recommend this place. We certainly hope to be back there ourselves someday (hopefully soon!).

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay for our honeymoon. The condo is perfectly equipped and beautifully decorated, comfortable, and clean. James and Lori have provided just about everything you could possibly need. The bed, as described, is the absolute most comfortable. We used to love coming home to our own bed but I honestly miss the bed in this condo.

The location is unbeatable. Centrally located if you plan to check out both sides of the island. We found it to be extremely convenient. Pretty quiet and way less populated than other areas. We did quite a bit of research before booking this condo and did so because of its proximity to the ocean. Best decision ever.

We will definitely be back and cannot wait for the next adventure. Many thanks to James and Lori for sharing their amazing condo!

Amazing Condo At An Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quiet and romantic getaway and that is exactly what we got! This condo was perfect and the view was breathtaking! It was extremely clean, comfortable, well decorated and fully equipped with everything needed and I mean everything! The kitchen was fully stocked and had extras like foil for barbequing and spices for your meats and veggies. The bathroom was equipped with plenty of supplies and had large soft towels (which is hard to find at some resorts) lol! The in-unit washer and dryer are so convenient and they even supply you with laundry soap and dryer sheets! We saved a lot by not having to go and buy all the extras and it's always nice to save while you're on vacation! The King size bed was heaven. Ridiculously comfortable and soft! My husband and I found it very difficult to ever want to leave it. Haha.. The view was amazing and could not be beat. Most of our time spent in the condo was on the Lanai listening to the waves and relaxing. This location is perfect if you love long walks on the beach or snorkeling. We were able to snorkel right in front of our room and we even saw turtles! How great is that?!?! It was an amazing experience and even though it was at a resort it still felt secluded and very private. We absolutely loved our stay at Sugar Beach! James and Lori you both are a delight to speak with and rent from. We will definitely be returning to your condo in the near future! Mahalo!
