The property was excellent, clean place, the AC worked in all rooms. You walk out on the patio and it is like 25 yards to the beach. You can hear the waves crashing at night from the TV room, but not the bedroom, so didn't keep us up at night.
The property host was very responsive, which was a big plus. Nothing went wrong but had a few questions and they get right back to you.
The location is great, a few minute walk and you are at a farmers market picking up the best tasting food ever!! If you are visiting Maui for the first time this is the best location if you want to try and do various things around the island.
The harbor is a quick 6–7-minute drive for all those boat tours.
Glad I found this place, it hit the spot.
Such a beautiful location and property. Jim was very responsive and helpful any time I had a question. Check in and out was perfect . Everything one could want on vacation was available in the condo. And the snacks , wow!! We felt so comfortable and happy, truly did not want to leave. The sunrises and sunsets are stunning. I love Sugar Beach and now I love #131 at SBR too.
The VRBO is amazing! It was extremely clean and well kept! It is so nice to stay at a place that people care about what they own. This location is a walk out with ocean view which was so beautiful to just walk right out the patio door and right to the ocean. The kitchen and amenities is fantastic. All the details of what they have is so nice instead of looking and trying to find all the stuff. Also having a washer and dryer in the VRBO is a huge seller for me! We will be back to this spot again! I highly recommend it.
Property was extremely well stocked. Hosts were very responsive. Could not ask for a better place to spend our honeymoon at!
My wife and I had a most enjoyable though briefed 5 night stay at #131. Jim’s and Carol’s #131 was so well stocked and appointed, was on the 1st floor, was near parking, and was - compared to our time share in Ka’anapali - quiet. And again compared to the highly congested road to and from Ka’anapali, the roads in the Kihei and Wailea areas were much easier to traverse. We were gratified with Jim’s and Carol’s attentiveness in answering our inquiries quickly and graciously. We will definitely plan on returning to #131. So high praises to the McCauleys!
Condo was very nice, clean, and we loved the central location in Kihei. It was right on the water, with the beach access just a few steps away, including a shower to rinse off. Very well appointed, including beach equipment, washer/dryer, everything you could imagine in the kitchen, and plenty of supplies (paper products, ziplock bags, trash bags, etc), including incredible welcome baskets and treats in the refrigerator. Owners were very responsive and kind. We were provided with a full list of everything in the condo so that we knew what we needed to bring or buy. Owners also provided restaurant recommendations for the area. We would definitely stay here again!
Simply the best
This condo is beautiful and more well-stocked than any property I've ever stayed at. The water on the beach outside isn't the most blue (I was told due to a recent storm) but the sand was lovely and it was centrally located to be a great launching pad for everything else to do on the island. The hosts were amazing. I hope to stay here again!
Jim and Carol’s place was perfect. It’s right on the water where you can watch the sunset, take walks on the beach and see the whales. They were incredibly attentive and welcoming. They had a lovely note for my husband’s birthday and amazing gift baskets. The only bad thing is we only spent two nights there. It’s a great central location to get all over the island. We would love to come back here!
We had a great time, the property was just as described (well a bit better actually) and the hosts could not have been better.
The condo was comfortable, spotless, and very welcoming. Our hosts were easy to communicate with and very helpful. Thanks!
This condo is definitely a home away from home! Jim and Carol are the most accommodating, responsive, thoughtful and gracious hosts. They made us feel very welcome as soon as we walked in! Everything that a guest could need is provided…we’ve never experienced such a well-stocked unit. And it is very clean. The beach is just steps away and the view from the lanai is amazing! The location is perfect and convenient to shopping, restaurants and fun! You will not regret staying at this condo and we will definitely be returning!
10 stars! A lovely condo that is so well-equipped, it feels a home away from home. Although close to an important road and with a parking spot just yards from our door, it is soooo quiet! I very much appreciated how meticulously clean it is. And the view from the wall of windows and lanai! Especially at sunset. Wow. To top it off, you're steps from the long sands of the beach. The location is perfect for Kihei fun (we loved the beaches) and conveniences, as well as reasonable drives to West Maui, Up Country, the airport, and even the Road to Hana and the summit of Haleakala. (We experienced them all.) The hosts are among the most thoughtful we've encountered. We recommend this stay! Have fun! (And mahalo.)
Our stay at #131 was SO GREAT! Jim and Carol go above and beyond in every aspect! They provide literally everything you will ever need on your vacation. Upon booking, they send you a welcome email with an inventory list of everything that’s in their condo and location of each item. A map of the resort is also provided. Upon arrival you are greeted with a beautiful view and snacks set up in baskets. Jim and Carol are available within minutes in the case you need to contact them. Prior to our vacation I reached out to them for dinner suggestions and they provided a great list of options!The condo itself is beautifully decorated and nicely kept. It looks directly out to the ocean and just a few steps away from the beach! Each morning was so beautiful having breakfast looking out to the ocean. We even had a few roosters pay us a visit right in front of the lanai. Even with other families staying next door, we never had a noise issue. Everyone was very friendly.Boogie boards, towels, beach chairs, and a small cooler are provided. I forgot my hairspray at home and was so excited to find that Jim and Carol had even that under the bathroom sink! They have extra everything! Extra towels, extra blankets, comforter, extra Dove shampoo/conditioner/body wash.The condo is pretty centrally located to food/stores/gas stations. You won’t regret staying here! Do it!!!Thanks again Jim and Carol, we look forward to coming back one day
Just To Say My Wife And I Loved This Rental Feels Like An Understatement!
This Property Was Everything & More. Location Was Perfect. Centrally Located With Few Minute Drive To Anywhere.
No Touristy Issues That You’d Seem To Get Everywhere Else.
Private Beach Was Beautiful & Locals Were Super Nice. Resort Had Clean Private Pool & Hot Tub For Days We Wanted To Relax There.
Sitting On The Back Patio Watching The Island Wake Up And Go To Sleep Was A Peacefulness Like We Haven’t Experienced Before.
The Rental Was Super Clean And Could Tell Is Well Taken Care Of!
Jim & Carol Were Probably The Most Accommodating Hosts That We’ve Ever Rented From! Also Very Easy To Communicate With! We Loved Our Welcome Package 🙌
Definitely Would Rent Again!
You Will Not Regret Renting Here! Just Do It!
The owners thoughtfully and carefully provided everything that a guest could possibly need including sunscreen, bandaids, umbrella, rain ponchos…etc, etc, etc. In particular, we enjoyed ice cream bars stocked in the freezer, along with welcome baskets filled with bottles of water, individual snack bars, Hawaiian cookies and more….
We were told we could use anything there because it was to feel like our home. The refrigerator had catsup, mayonnaise and mustard and other assorted items, things we didn’t need to buy and would never consume even in a month. (We stayed 10 days.).
We thank the owners…for our 10 days in Hawaii, we felt at home…this was a pleasant experience.
Unit was in a great location, the beach was 20 feet from the lanai. Groceries etc were not far away in central Kihei. Supplies were very well stocked with all the basics and more. Unit was very clean and well kept. Received very clear instructions on how to check in, contact owners etc. We arrived about 11pm and had no problems finding the unit and getting in.
And we will definitely stay here again just simply amazing.
Kellie & Colin P.
We had a wonderful experience here at Sugar Beach! Our host was very warm and welcoming. She welcomed us with a welcome pack of essentials (e.g. coffee, snack foods & water), which we found very helpful because we couldn’t get groceries until the day after we arrived. She also had a well-stocked supply of things like Q-tips, toilet paper, laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, beach towels, and anything needed to make us feel right at home! We loved watching the sunset each evening on the lanai and we appreciated having our own laundry machines, AC, and a king size bed to help us relax and for convenience. The pool and beach were used almost daily; having them at our finger tips was so convenient to cool off after a day of hiking/sightseeing. The unit was very clean. We liked the updated appliances and decor. Carol & Jim left instructions for everything, which made it super easy to find things and to problem-solve. The only disappointment was the wifi in the evening - it was very slow most of the time. Overall, we loved our Maui vacation and we would definitely stay here again!
don medrano t.
Will stay again
We had a fantastic stay. The owners are so very nice and helpful! The condo was beautiful and extremely well equipped. We would recommend this unit to anyone who wants to visit Maui! We would stay here again if we return to Maui.
We had a great time. The location of the property was even better that what we expected from the description. The host was very helpful. The condo had everything we needed and more. We needed a small cooler for a day trip and could not find one. We called the Jim to see if there was one... and within few hour Jim dropped one at the door. Also Jim was very considerate to extend the checkout time since our flight was later in the day.
We loved it. We couldn't have asked for a better place as far as location and everything! All the amenities. They really out did themselves. Great hosts all the way around. Would definately stay here again.
This condo is gorgeous! We loved how beautifully decorated it was and it was 50 ft from the beach. This is truly an upscale condo. The owners are wonderful and caring people. We truly loved our stay and appreciated all the sweet touches to make guests feel at home. We had snacks, water and candy provided for us. Everything we could have needed was there. Also there was a possibility of high waves and not only did they bring sandbags over but they also had another place lined up for us if the waves flooded the condo. You can't beat this place if you tried!! Thank you to the McCauley's!
Place was awesome and loaded with amenities and very clean. We had no complaints and it made my stay and birthday worthwhile. Much mahalo to everyone involved. Much mahalos!
Great condo right on the beach. Great location. Wonderful Hosts! Gave great local recommendations. Thank you!
When you stay at the This property, the owners, Jim and Carol, say their home is your home. They really meant well. The home is clean and very well organized. It is fully stocked with all the things you need, with the extra goodies! You’re getting to the island and it’s hot, you really appreciate the well stocked refrigerator with water and some other drinks. You cannot beat the location as it is just literally few steps to the beach once you’re out of your patio. Parking is infront of the building and locker is fully stocked with whatever you need outdoor, chairs, fishing stuff, boogie boards, anything you need! Will come back again! Couldn’t thank the owners enough💕
Beautiful condo that offers everything you could think of and more. Owners were very easy to get ahold of if we needed anything, great communication! The location of this condo was perfect, just a quick drive to most places we went.
This was just a wonderful stay!!! We got to meet Carol on our way out and she was just lovely! So thoughtful, kind, and intentional about making sure we enjoyed our stay. We had a great time! It's a great central location to the rest of the island and there's yummy shave ice just up the street!
Having breakfast each morning on the patio 20 yards from the ocean after a 3 mile walk on a pure sand beach, what can be better! This unit is beautiful. The owners are local and take excellent care of the unit. It's hard to believe it is a rental. They have a storage locker full of beach items for anyone from 1 to 100. They have wonderful baskets with hawaiian treats, crackers and granola bars and a fridge with water cheese and condiments and some ice cream treats in the freezer waiting for your arrival. The unit is beautifully decorated and bed very comfortable. We enjoyed many meals on the patio enjoying that view. The pool area is very large although we spent much more time on the beach. Our best meals were nights we grilled and enjoyed dinner on the patio. I have been to Maui many times staying in very nice resorts and condos but for location and owner care this is at the top of the list.
We had our whole family staying in properties at sugar beach and our unit was the base for all get togethers as it was so well stocked ! Jim and Carol have thought of everything to make your vacation a home away from home ! Thank you for a perfect Christmas getaway !
The condo is exactly as described. It is next the beach, great views, quiet, very clean and comfortable. Hosts even provided cookies, chocolates, ice creams and drinks. We had a great time.
Great, clean, nicely remodeled ocean front condo in a nice resort. We had a great time.
The condo is on the first floor of the building, making it extremely convenient if you are looking to spend as much time on the beach as possible. You literally walk across the grass and a lovely, smooth, sandy beach stretches a good ways in both directions. Jim and Carol were quite friendly and kind and their unit is clearly stocked with the guests comfort in mind. Location is great, I’ve found Kihei to be a great spot on Maui as it’s easy to get food and groceries, but not as crowded as Lahaina or Wailea. Would definitely stay again!!
We love our vacation. So enjoyable once you checked in. We did a quick dip in the water right after we landed. It was a great place to stay. All the details in this place showed how considerate Jim and Carol are. Loved the waters and juice already in the refrigerator upon arrival and beach chair, little cooler for picnic available for us to use. Would love to come back to this place.
Amazing property and perfect view! Owners very attentive to every detail and condo was as stated and beautifully updated! The owners kept in touch via text to ensure check-in was easy, had guide books available if you needed them, and a wonderful welcoming basket of water and snacks. We look forward to staying here again in the future!
Real nice and right on the beach.
The location of this property was perfect: it was convenient to lots of great food options, shopping, Costco, airport, amazing views of the beach and access to a long beach for walks and swimming. The unit itself was VERY clean, perfect for a couple, great working central air, comfortable king bed, had almost everything you could need on a trip, body boards, lots of beach towels, beach chairs, kitchen and bathroom were fully stocked. They even provided delicious snacks and ice cream - we appreciate these kinds of things. Resort access to a pool, hot tub and BBQ. The hosts were very pleasant, responsive, helpful and provided all info needed for a smooth and very easy check-in and check out. Thank you so much Jim & Carol. We LOVED and really appreciated your home and will definitely stay here again.
If we are in Maui there is no other place we would ever consider staying. After changing islands twice we were a little tired when we pulled into Carol and Jim’s place at sugar beach and it was perfect. You are on the beach in a protected cove with turtles swimming yards away from your back door. Throughout their condo you can hear the soft sounds of the ocean while every amenity you could ever want or ask for is at your disposal. Jim and Carol have constant communication with you from the time of booking until your arrival and will even provide advice and help while you are on the island. Their property is spotless, the bed is comfortable and the location is perfect. Easy access to nearby towns, minutes from the Harbour if you take an excursions and convenient access to all roads to take you anywhere on the island but importantly enough far enough away that you felt as through the beach was yours. Each morning waking up making a cup of coffee and hot tea and saying hello to all the turtles swimming in the bay. Although there is a pool and hot tub on sight I must say we only used the ocean but they seemed like nice areas with grills and entertaining area. I haven’t even mentioned the sunsets which were landing straight out the back door right of the point. Jim and Carol have these great welcome baskets with snacks and water upon your arrival and truly make you feel welcome and that it is your home for your stay. Great place wonderful people just make yourself happy and book it before me or someone else who has been there before beats you to it.
Beautiful location and a very nice and cozy welcoming house. Very well stocked, very comfortable house. Has everything we could need and more for our stay.
Nice and cozy master bedroom. Very well stocked kitchen. Has AC. Newly renovated house. Very clean and well kept. And the highlight is the amazing sunset views and how close the beach is.
Beach is just steps away. I never grew tired of the sound of crashing waves. Sugar Beach is a gorgeous long stretch of white sand perfect for all ages. The condo rental has tasteful island-style furnishings and was so well - appointed with all the things that make you feel like you’re at home: snacks, toiletries. Along with all the beach gear they provide, you barely need to bring any luggage. The owners were very warm, friendly and hospitable. Love this place!
I would definitely come back again ! Thank you guys for the amazing experience.
Great location, right on the beach. Jim and Carol went out of their way to make our stay fantastic. The apartment has everything you need and was very well organized and of high quality. So many extras it was amazing.
We had the most amazing time at the condo. Waking up and drinking coffee while steps from the ocean was a dream. Can’t recommend this place enough!
Extremely well stocked condo with a lovely view. We liked staying in Kihei since we did a lot of day trips (road to Hana, Haleakala) and this reduced driving time. Was great to be able to do laundry and enjoy some snacks when we arrived. Quick email communication with hosts.
My husband and I would highly recommend staying here! The hosts were so helpful in getting us here and checked in and we’ve been blown away since with how amazing this space is! Steps from the prettiest quiet beach, stocked with the most thoughtful treats and drinks, and incredibly clean and cozy! We are already planning out next trip to Maui and we will absolutely stay here again!
For our 30th wedding anniversary we decided to go to Maui. Looking for a location "on the beach" we found Carol and Jims wonderful condo in Kihei on Sugar Beach. This awesome location will make you feel that your have your own private porch and beach front in Maui. Listening to the ocean, walking 30 steps to the beach and watching the sunrise/sunset were daily occurrences. The condominium was super clean modernized kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
Additionally, the location in Kihei makes access to all parts of the island really easy. Thank you Carol and Jim for making our 30th feel super special :-)
