About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6 MAX)

Come stay in the most beautiful home in the Maui Sunset Resort. You will have a breathtaking, unobstructed, view of the ocean; the West Maui mountains, & the island of Lanai. You will experience the whales breaching during the day & the on-fire sunsets by night, all from your huge private lanai.

Our 3 bedroom unit is the ocean facing end unit on the top floor. There is only one other unit in the whole complex that is this spacious. The location & layout make it very quiet & private. The huge master suite has surround, ocean view, windows; a private vanity, with 'Rain Forest Green' marble; a roomy queen size bed, & includes a true ''corner office with a view''. The other master bedroom has it's own private bath,& luxurious king bed; & a beautiful view of Haleakala, The third bedroom, we call the ''Tropical Green Room'', is very spacious with twin beds, full bath across the hall; and a view of Haleakala as well.

UPGRADES: We spent an entire summer turning our place into a home, instead of a typical vacation rental. Everything has been upgraded. We have a beautiful kitchen with custom maple cabinets,''Ariel Green'' granite counters; new appliances, and creative artistic lighting. Fully equipped with all your kitchen needs.

Our theme of ''Pacific Rim'' decor includes highlights such as; crushed-bamboo tables and chairs from Bali, solid teak and mahogany from Indonesia, and custom cherry built-ins from the good old USA. All the different woods make the rooms warm and inviting. The living room has comfortable all-leather seating, that has a front row seat every night for the sunset. We put in new floors, doors, lighting, fans, paint, stain, marble vanities, and all the other details that make it a home .It is now very upscale, yet very comfortable.

LOCATION/AMMENITIES: Our home is the perfect central location for all of your Maui activities; whether it be a luau in Lahaina, hiking in Haleakala or a sunset dinner cruise. We have whale watching, windsurfing, kiting, and beach walking right outside your front door; as well as tennis, a putting green, shuffleboard, and barbecues. We have one of the nicest pools in Kihei to work on your tan and read a good book, or go for a refreshing swim. The pool and hot tub are beautiful at night with the stars out and the torches lit.

Our home comes fully equipped and ready for your vacation. You should find everything you need to make your stay perfect. There is a full size washer/dryer in the unit for your convenience. We even have a ''toy closet'' with boogie boards, tennis rackets, snorkel masks, coolers, beach chairs, and beach toys for all ages. We supply beach towels, shampoo/conditioner & hair dryers.

You are only a couple of blocks away from grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and Starbucks.

If you like to walk, you can walk along the beach, or a quiet back road, that take you to the nearby stores. For multiple activities in your group, there is now a public bus that stops at the entrance to the Maui Sunset Resort, that services most of Maui.

If you are searching for the perfect place to stay for you and your family, you have found it in our home. We would love to have you come visit.

We look forward to hearing from you. Feel free to write or call with any questions you might have and we will do our best to answer, or refer you to people who have the answers you are seeking.

Maui is calling, you should answer the call....Aloha Janet and John

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful home here at Maui Sunset! We as a family enjoyed the beautiful area. Your home is so wonderfully appointed, from the bedroom comforts, generous towels, bath accessories, children's coloring books & crayons, to all of the required kitchen items and appropriate reading literature. Every evening we enjoyed the property's, "Maui Sunset" namesake by watching the sunsets. Grandpa is recovering from rotator cuff surgery, so swimming in the pool & finishing with the jacuzzi was totally therapeutic. We're golfers & it was Masters weekend, so your entertainment setup was marvelous. We also played the King Kamehameha Course which was fantastic. Your every attention to detail is what makes your home offering so wonderful. Our little granddaughters loved all the children's items you've provided. So much different than other rentals we have experienced. We look forward to returning to your home. Thank you for sharing your home. Mahalo

Absolutely beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

Janet & John have a fantastic place with absolutely everything you need to make your vacation so relaxing and perfect. We walked in to be greeted with a wonderful fruit basket and a full pound of Maui coffee!!!! The location is close to shopping, activities and is without the noise of anything except the sound of the ocean crashing against the shore. We stayed here for 10 nights with 4 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for everyone!! There were plenty of beach chairs, tennis rackets and balls, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, beach towels, coolers and much more. Our grandkids (age 9 and 11) loved every bit of this place and although they had never played tennis before this soon became a daily event for all of us. They also loved the pool and spent many hours swimming there as well as the ocean. All the kitchen facilities were up to date and there was also a full size washer/dryer inside the suite. All the beds were very comfortable and the bedding and towels were in excellent condition. Janet and John have provided so many extras: laundry soap, shampoo, body wash, toilet paper, paper towels, a great selection of spices, just to name a few. Janet has explanatory notes all over their suite and they even trust their guests enough to have a priceless piece of art on display from Japan. We spent lots of time on the very spacious lanai overlooking the ocean, having coffee, playing cards and just enjoying the beautiful sunsets. We didn't have to use the air conditioning units very much (except in the kids room) as the trade winds kept us fairly cool in this place. We would highly recommend this unit for anyone wanting to visit Maui. Janet and John have been the most pleasant and accommodating people and we would have no hesitation at all in renting their place again!!! Thank you very much Janet & John!!

Perfect Christmas!!

  • 5 of 5


We spent Christmas at the Maui Sunset and stayed in this AMAZING condo!! Our stay was fabulous. The condo was immaculate and had everything we needed to make our holiday absolutely perfect. The pictures Janet has posted are exactly the way the condo looks. They have thought of everything to make anybody's stay comfortable and eliminate the need for overpacking. They had full size washer and dryer, along with everything you would possibly need for any activity. They had boogie boards, coolers of all different sizes, water jugs, tennis rackets and balls, snorkel gear and flippers, beach sand toys, beach chairs and LOTS of awesome towels to take to the beach. The view is beautiful we were able to see the whales with the binoculars they had available as well and the Lanai is a fabulous place to watch the beautiful sunset and look over the pool and tennis courts. Everyone is very friendly at this Maui Sunset and our children met some new friends at the pool. The grounds are kept in absolute perfect condition and made for perfect conditions for Bocce Ball. This is a great place for families and John and Janet are so accommodating and pleasant to deal with. I am so grateful that they were willing to open their home to us and allow us to have a wonderful holiday with family, we would definitely stay here again! I would for sure recommend this place to anyone, its PERFECT!

Still raving about it SIX MONTHS LATER!!

  • 5 of 5

Janet - This review is long overdue! I left a note in the guestbook at the condo but it didn't dawn on me that you wouldn't know how much we enjoyed your home until you returned back to it when the seasons changed and you left Colorado for the islands!

It's been six months since we stayed in your lovely home and we STILL rave about it to everyone we know. The watercolors I made while sitting on the lanai are hanging over my desk at work and remind me everyday, that even on a dreary gloomy Monday in Seattle there's still a glorious Maui Sunset just over the horizon!

Your home is MUCH more beautiful, welcoming, comfortable, user friendly, accessible, safe, fun, convenient, and thoughtful, than any other place we have ever stayed while on vacation or for any type of extended stay. You seem to have thought of everything! I kept smiling when I saw all the notes and labels giving the details on how to use items (or not use them incorrectly) and so appreciate that you'd gone to all the effort to ensure that as guests in your home you were providing a gentle, gracious touch at every turn.

Thank you again for making our stay in Maui the BEST! We will definitely be contacting you when we return to your island.

Kind regards, JoAnn and Don

Week in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time - everything we needed was in the condo and it was just as promised. Great location for getting to all activities in Maui. The condo was nice and quiet in the evening and we loved sitting on the lanai in the mornings and evening watching for whales and sunsets, respectively.
