POOL CLOSURE NOTICE (ONE WEEK IN SEPTEMBER): The ENTIRE POOL AND DECK AREA will be CLOSED for ONE WEEK beginning on the SECOND MONDAY of EVERY SEPTEMBER. Travelers, please make a note of this for future stays with us!
Hello 1st time Guests and Repeaters!!
Aloha and welcome to our beautiful, centrally air-conditioned OCEANFRONT 4th Floor condo (6 floors total) located in sunny Kihei (Maui). To determine your condo cost: (Daily Rate x number of nights) + cleaning fee + Hawaii State Sales Tax. That is it! There are no other hidden fees or charges (parking and secured wireless internet are free) for the rental of this unit.
YOUR CONDO---Your non-smoking, elevator accessible condo is full of amenities including a washer and dryer, stove, cook top, microwave, 46” LCD TV with cable, DVD player, free hi-speed wireless internet service, blender, free landline local phone service, and all of the usual kitchen appliances, coffee maker, toaster, dishes and silverware that you may need. There are fresh linens and soft bath towels, a couple of beach towels (see the front desk for beach chairs), a California King sized bed to relax in along with stone top nightstands, and plenty of closet space (with a small safe) for all of your luggage. There is a pull-out ‘double-sized’ sofa in the living room that sleeps two people (not as comfortable as a mattress, but ok). The bathroom includes a shower/tub, a blow dryer (probably not as nice as yours but works well) and the bathroom is accessible from the main living room without disturbing the master bedroom (sliding door partition). Make your way to your own private lanai/balcony and listen to waves crashing against the beach just below as you sip your favorite beverage. Enjoy!
SUGAR BEACH RESORT---Located less than 10 miles from the airport, Kihei is centrally located to all of your destinations on Maui. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by a front office professional who will answer any questions you may have about Sugar Beach. Check-in is after 3 pm and check out is at 11 am. Arriving late? No problem. Pick up the courtesy phone, give the operator your reservation number and a lockbox will dispense your access key right there. Next door is an activity center (and a fully stocked general store) where island guides will introduce you to snorkeling, horseback riding, golf, hiking, luaus, Harley rentals (our fav), romantic cruises, and sport fishing to name a few. The grocery stores are close by and Maui even has a COSTCO and a WALMART (great prices). Stop by the on-site bar and sandwich shop and try one of their margaritas or order from their complete menus. There is also an on-site spa/salon that offers relaxing massages by a licensed professional.
The grounds are beautiful, full of vegetation, flowers and palm trees. There are plenty of lounge chairs on the property, covered parking (free to guests), and tennis courts. The centrally located pool is cleaned every night and includes a built-in Jacuzzi, sauna and wading pool for the kids. The beach is the longest uninterrupted beach in all of Hawaii!! The sand is a golden-yellow, soft, and is excellent for romantic walks at night or an early morning jog. The waves make excellent body surfing with your boogie board too (see front desk for snorkeling equipment and boogie boards rentals). At night, the light sounds of the waves will hypnotically send you into a deep and tranquil sleep and you will wake up with a renewed energy ready to seize the day!
CANCELLATION AND RESERVATION POLICY---
1.) Your reservation is 100% refundable (less a 3% cancellation fee) for all cancellations GREATER than 90 days prior to your date of arrival.
2.) ALL SALES ARE FINAL LESS THAN 90 DAYS FROM YOUR ARRIVAL DATE.
3.) There are NO REFUNDS for bad weather (or other acts of nature, man-made or otherwise). This includes, but not limited too, the loud talking guests next door, the fact that you "never saw a whale" while you were in Hawaii, you found some seaweed on the beach and it looked gross, you didn't know it would be this 'sunny and hot', the sudden announcement that your daughter is expecting (congrats by the way!), missing your flight, your spouse is driving you nuts, or if you suddenly become ill and cannot come to (or stay in) Hawaii. These are the top reasons we have received over the years but our policy is clear. Please see rule #1 and rule # 2 if you have any questions.
PLEASE NOTE: In another part of this ad for our unit, it states there are "NO REFUNDS". That is NOT TRUE. VRBO made us choose one policy and none of their choices fit our custom policy. We have called VRBO and so far the wording has not been 'fixed' to reflect our true cancellation policy. We are very sorry. As owners, we promise to be upfront, transparent, honest and to the point. Our repeat clients are like family to us and we have worked very hard to be straight and true with everyone. We hope this sets the record straight.
Full payment is required at the time the reservation is booked and we require a (5) night minimum stay (slightly higher rates for less than 7 days). All guests 17 and under stay free for a maximum occupancy of (4) people per condo. For all adult persons (3) and (4) there is a $12 per day charge for each person.
RENTER'S INSURANCE---Please consider getting renter's insurance. We cannot stress this enough. Most people book our units months in advance and sometimes life throws you a curveball. Do not be caught paying for a condo that you cannot use due to illness, the birth of a loved one or because of economic hardship. For a small amount of money, it is worth the piece if mind. Did we convince you?
CHECKOUT TIME IS AT 10AM--NO EXCEPTIONS (SORRY!): The management of the complex informed the owners that they are mandating a 10 am (Hawaii time obviously) checkout. There are no late checkouts available at this time. MOST travelers rent a car and spend the day touring the island before their flight OR they may lounge at our pool, order food and drinks, etc (or do both!). There are public bathrooms to change in and you are welcome to use them even though you have officially checked out. Still, others pay for an extra day in the unit for late evening flights if you choose to spend time in the condo. Which option works best for you?
HOW TO BOOK THIS UNIT---1. Please email me and request our unit WITH SPECIFIC DATES in the date boxes provided to you. 2. We will call the booking agent on Maui and make the reservation under your name for the dates you gave us. 3. Once we receive a reservation # we will accept your payment and email you check-in instructions and the actual reservation itself. PLEASE CHECK THE DATES AND THE SPELLING(S) ON THE RESERVATION!! Look good? Ok, you are all set!!
