Views, views and more views! Enjoy views of the ocean, West Maui mountains and Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge from this gorgeous updated Penthouse condo at Kealia Resort. Enjoy and relax in this fully air-conditioned unit, beautifully appointed and stocked with everything you will need during your stay. Equipped with a new Flat Screen Smart TV and Digital Cable in the living room and free High-Speed Wireless Internet access.

This 1 bedroom condo is bright and open. The bedroom has a king size bed, full-sized dresser, ample closet space, a flat screen TV and a sitting nook with amazing ocean and mountain views. This is new rental unit, hence why this unit does not have reviews yet. I have a studio rental in this same resort with glowing 5 star experience ratings (please see VRBO#91648). I hold both units to the same design, maintenance and hospitality standard, so you can book this unit with confidence.

I have stocked the condo with everything you would need to make your vacation enjoyable from the moment you arrive. The fully stocked kitchen not only comes equipped with plates, utensils, glassware, cooking supplies, coffee maker, and bullet blender, but also basic pantry items (salt, pepper, sugar, cooking oil, ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce, taco seasoning, soy sauce, and steak seasoning). The full bathroom is stocked with extra towels and the private washer and dryer in the unit comes with laundry soap for your convenience. A full Beach Gear Kit is available for your use (beach chairs, beach towels, boogie board, snorkel gear and ice chest) so all you need to do is unpack and get right to enjoying your vacation.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the lanai staring at the ocean. During Whale season (December-May) enjoy whale watching right from this lanai. Start your mornings and end your evenings with a gorgeous leisurely beach walk just steps from your room. Kealia Resort is a small complex located right on the ocean on Sugar Beach, South Maui's longest beach. The beachfront location is perfect for enjoying a BBQ dinner as you watch the evening waves at sunset. Or enjoy a book under one of the large shade trees. Kealia Resort is the last condo complex on Sugar Beach until you get to Maalaea giving it a feeling of privacy rarely found on a beach front property. Kealia Resort is a non-smoking complex.

Me and my wife honeymooned here. Could not recommend a better place. Especially if you want to stay away from the large resorts and have more privacy. Also a great central location on the island.

This condo was a really great space for two adults. Great location, right on the beach, and close to town for dinning. The space was very clean, had beach towels, beach chairs and a cooler which was very nice. Some of the towels smelt a bit like mildew, like maybe a previous tenant left them in the wash too long, but that won’t stop us from coming back. Book this place, you’ll be happy you did.

My wife and I spent a few days here for our wedding anniversary. It was a great place, the perfect size for two people. We were close to places in Kihei and the beach wasn't crowded at all. Stunning views! Highly recommended!

We had the best 10 days at Lydia’s place! It is conveniently located close to most big sights (Haleakala, the start of the road to Hana, etc) are only 20-30 minutes away. Lydia is so thoughtful, she has SO many little things at her condo that we hadn’t thought of bringing. She also has beach chairs, a beach umbrella and a cooler which was really useful since we couldn’t fly with all that stuff. The views from the balcony are exactly as pictured. We would absolutely stay at Lydia’s place again!

This one bedroom condo was exactly what we were looking for in a nine-day vacation rental. We enjoyed breakfasts and afternoon happy hour on the lanai with a beautiful view of the ocean and green foliage. The kitchen was a perfect size for our needs. We enjoyed lengthy beach walks going both directions of the beach from the building. We made plans to return to this condo before we even left! Note - a rental car is needed to get to the Kihei restaurants or grocery store.

Many times there is something to be desired when checking in to a property because the photos highlight the few best parts. However, walking in we were so happy it was exactly perfect and what we expected! Whale watching from the balcony was great and the comfort of the condo amazing! Location, location, location! Nice quaint quiet spot but near everything! Property so pretty and nice to hang out outside! We are very happy with everything here!

This unit was great for my husband and me. Beautiful location, view, great beach and delightfully decorated and supplied.. The only downside was if you wanted to invite friends: no guest parking or dining table and limited space inside for more than two people. We would stay here again and make other arrangements with friends.

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon. I truly never wanted to leave! It was the perfect place to stay on Maui. The condo was filled with things we needed and then some! The beach chairs were helpful as the beach was just a few steps away! It was quiet and peaceful. We hope to stay here again! Lydia was super helpful and very responsive! If you are thinking about staying here--Do it! You won't regret it!

Good experience but appears we paid a bit too much for extra fees compared to others at same local.

This condo was very clean and comfortable. The view from the deck was amazing. We even saw whales from the deck with our binoculars (don't forget to bring yours) and the sunsets were beautiful. Loved the condo and location. Would definitely stay again.

Nice, cozy condo with direct beach access that has everything you need. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the water is magic. We were lucky enough to arrive to two cans of Maui brewing ginger beer in the fridge which we spiced up with some local coconut rum and pineapple! The stay was amazing and really wonderful. Snorkeling out front of the condo and saw fish and turtles! Definitely would stay here again!

We loved everything about this property. Eating on the balcony overlooking the ocean and mountains. Beautiful quiet beach away from the crowds. The condo has everything you will ever need including beach gear. Lydia was an amazing host. We have already recommended this property to family. We will definately be back.

Upon arrival at the building, we were displeased with the dated look of the building. However the condo itself is updated and is pleasant. It is a decent size for 2 people and since we weren’t in the condo much it really didn't matter. The bed was not comfortable. The couch was also not comfortable but the property manager was quickly responsive to replace it. The beach view was gorgeous and access to the beach was perfect. We walked on the beach every morning. The surrounding town was not to our standards but it is locals town. Overall, this is a decent quality place to stay with great beach location.

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo. We were happy to have A/C and would definitely stay here again. The condo was well appointed, the bed was comfortable and the location was great! The property manager, Justin, was helpful after we locked ourselves out without our phones and the access code.

Great location, complete with all your needs.

The Condo was immaculate and very nicely decorated. The view from the patio was spectacular and Sugar Beach was a only a few steps away. Awesome vacation getaway. We would recommend it to everyone! Thanks for everything Lydia!

WOW, WOW, WOW!! Lydia has to be the best host on the island!! Her Condo was just as advertised, if not better! Waking up to the sound of crashing waves, leaves you feeling energized for the day ahead. She has you prepared for any adventures you get yourself into. From towels, beach chairs, coolers, even sunscreen if you forget yours. The patio furniture is very comfortable to relax the day away with a view from the Top floor. Very centrally located to everything in Maui, made coming home to a treat. Walk the beach, snorkel, swim or just relax on the powder sands of Sugar Beach. We can't wait to return not only to the island, but to this Beauty on Sugar Beach. Lydia had great communication as well, she really knows what she doing! This was my first experience using Vrbo and I was Blown away by the experience. All because of you Lydia!!! Thank you so very much for allowing us to experience your home and for the hospitality!!!!! Cant wait to be back...

We had the best time!’ Lydia was the best host. The property is central to great food and great fun! Or if you want to just chill at the pool or take in the awesome view from a private balcony. We will be coming back soo

A wonderful condo and location except for the traffic noise, soft bed and tiny bathroom. But the condo is wonderfully decorated and appointed. It was very clean. The pool was also very clean. Beach is awesome! Landlord was very helpful and responsive. We were told we could have removed the pillow top portion of the bed to make it firmer. Next time!

Clean and well appointed. It would have helped to have a welcome book with info on condo and local restaurants etc.

This was a great place to rent! Exactly as described in the listing. The view from the condo was stunning. Being right next to the beach, it has everything we wanted for our vacation! Great communication with the host as well to make the whole rental an awesome experience.

The condo was nicely decorated and clean and had all the amenities needed. The location was centrally located and had parking, making it perfect for day trips to see the sights all over the island. Great beach right outside and the view was great from our balcony. Lydia was very responsive to any needs we may have had.

We had an amazing time in Maui 🐳 We checked in Saturday with no problems got settled and explored the beautiful grounds ! We set up on the beach for the most beautiful sunset we’ve ever seen ❤️ The views from the balcony are incredible, we saw whales every morning (whale season) The condo was very well equipped and had so many extras not expected! The location was centralized and so convenient to all of the attractions and beautiful beaches ! The bed was so soft and comfortable! Lydia,the host, was super responsive about any and all questions or concerns! I’m sure we will try our hardest to get back here soon !

If you are looking for immaculate and fully appointed place with a beautiful view just feet away from the longest stretch of undeveloped beach on West Maui, don't come here! lol! We completely enjoyed our stay here and will be back!

This unit is freshly furnished and is stocked with essentials to enjoy the sun and sand on beautiful Sugar Beach. We appreciated the sunsets from the balcony are beautiful. We especially liked that the unit has no other buildings adjacent to it, and is the last complex on the beach, great if you love long walks on a soft sandy beach. Highly recommend if you want direct access to the beach .

We had such a great time visiting Maui and staying in Lydia's condo, in Kiehi. Kehei is a perfect location for seeing everything Maui has to offer and Lydia's condo is situated on beautiful Sugar Beach, where we enjoyed amazing sunsets, quick drives to great restaurants, and being in the middle of all the best things about Maui. The condo was well-equipped and I especially appreciated the ability to do laundry when we needed to. It was an amazing stay and we will definitely hope to stay here again the next time we're in Maui.

Being able to sleep with the sound of the waves was a highlight of a our first visit to Maui. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy our time and is beautifully decorated. Clean, comfortable, and just a short drive to many delicious food trucks and restaurants.

This condo was everything it was advertised to be plus more. The views are absolutely amazing! Pics don’t do it justice. Kitchen is fully stocked as well as plenty of towels/wash cloths. Property has a nice pool and grilling area and is located on a nice quiet beach. Best part was sitting on the balcony watching the waves hit the beach while the sun sets. It doesn’t get any better. If we ever go back to Hawaii, we will book this condo again without hesitation!!

This property is great. The view of the ocean is perfect. We watch the sunset everything evening. The couch was great for relaxing. The bed was very comfortable. Slept great each night. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. We would definitely stay here again. Lydia was a great host.

Even with a rainy time in Maui, this property was perfect! We spent time playing cards, listening to the crashing waves, and watching the storms cross the mountains. This property is in a perfect location and provided easy access all the way around the island. The host is fantastic. She keeps you updated and well informed about the property.

We spent several nights here as part of our honeymoon in Hawaii! We enjoyed the view and loved the lounge chairs overlooking the beach and ocean to sit and relax. We also loved walking along the beach to Sugar Beach Bake Shop each morning for coffee! Potential negatives: The condo isn’t walkable to many other things but we had a car and didn’t find it to be an issue. Also the bed is quite soft so depending on preference it may not be the most comfortable. Overall Lydia was flexible for check in and out and we had a great stay!

We had a wonderful vacation experience at this property. The condo is very well appointed. There are two air conditioners which made for very comfortable sleeping. The lanai has exceptional view of the ocean especially at sunset. Our goal was to hike on Maui as much as possible. We came back to the condo very dirty. It is wonderful to have laundry on site. The bedding is very comfortable and the property is quiet. The Pacific Whale Foundation Wild Side Snorkel tour is wonderful. It is a non-profit and the harbor is just 10 minutes from condo. Highly recommend!! We communicated with Lydia several times during our stay. She is excellent to deal with. The condo is on the nicest beach(in our opinion) on Maui. We highly recommend the property and Lydia !! Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with us! We will be back.

Kealia Resort condo 605 was a real gem. We really enjoyed our stay. It’s only 20 minutes from the airport and a great central location for touring destinations like the road to Hana and Haleakala national Park. Also very close to Maalaea Harbor for any water excursions. There are many great restaurants in Kihei and Wailea just a short drive away. The photos of the condo do not lie. The view is gorgeous anytime of day but especially for beautiful sunsets. The condo was equipped with everything we needed and more. It was very clean. Having a washer and dryer was a plus. We loved swimming in the ocean each day and relaxing on the beach and on windy days the lawn area. We Also enjoyed the pool. Lydia was very accessible and responsive to our inquiries about the area and went out of her way to have a missing TV remote delivered. If we’re blessed to return to Maui we would stay here again! Aloha!

We felt right at home. This property is so conveniently located with easy access to attractions in the North, South and East. If we could give more than 5 stars we would. The property exceeded the listing. So many small touches allowed us to settle right in. Towels and Linens were nice home quality. The kitchen was well equipped. We has a chance to meet owner Lydia and she is all about the spirit of Aloha. We would come back.

This was overall a great stay, we loved the view (though it’s a bit of a partial view) and loved that we could walk right down to the beach. We didn’t get to take advantage of the pool since it wasn’t heated and felt a bit too cold throughout, but on hotter days I’m sure it’s great to just walk down to it. It’s just a couple of minutes to drive to several amenities in Kihei and we appreciated having use of beach chairs throughout our stay. Only things we didn’t love is that the WiFi didn’t work beyond the first day. We even rebooted the router and everything and no luck. Not ideal as we didn’t want to use data the whole time and couldn’t really watch movies or anything. Not sure what the issue was there but it was frustrating. The other thing to note is that the back patio door didn’t lock, it’s several floors up so we felt safe and fine but something to make sure is fixed if you plan to stay with kids.

This condo was a perfect find for us! The location is central to Maui and right on Sugar Beach at the end so it feels really private! Close to the marina where charters leave for snorkeling and 30 minutes away from Lahaina! We loved it. The WiFi wasn’t working when we got there but the owner was quick to get it fixed!

I can not say enough about the view, day and night it was to die for! So close to the beach and a number of shops and restaurants were an easy drive away!

September 2021
The location of this condo is perfect for a quiet relaxing stay. Right on the beach, there is also a shaded tree covered lawn as a respite from the sun. The beach is never crowded and is the perfect area for a long morning walk. The canoe club next door provides some entertaining sights in the early morning. Beyond the club is a nature preserve and no buildings which gives the impression of being all on your own. The condo itself is clean and well decorated. Previous renters put away some of the dishes with food on them which needed to be washed. This problem would easily be missed by the cleaners and was the only flaw in an otherwise sparkling clean space. Kihei is centrally located for shopping, restaurants, beaches, etc. We couldn't have asked for more.

Everything about our stay here was positive. The view from our balcony was wonderful. The beach was nice and the condo is well stocked. The owner was quick to respond and has done a spectacular job with this place. I highly recommend this condo for your stay in Maui.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this property! The interior of the unit was very very clean and well equipped. The view from the lanai was incredible. Even more stunning in person. The location of the condo was great, it's the last unit on a long stretch of public beach so it gave it the feel of some exclusivity because there wasn't a neighboring complex next to it. Kihei in general is a great location to visit south west Maui with the resorts and restaurants, NW Maui, and is a relatively short drive to drive to the up country or east Maui. The complex is pretty dated but the pool was nice and never very crowded. If we went again, we would probably want to stay within walking distance of some restaurants but that's totally just personal preference. Again, this place was as advertised and had major pluses being on the end of the strip and super clean and well equipped! Great value.

We selected this condo because of the view - and it was perfect! Loved sitting on the couch or the balcony, relaxing and looking out at the ocean and the mountain. Just west of the building is a grassy park area and then no other buildings for miles. So the beach is almost deserted. So quiet and private. Also up the beach is the Maui canoe club, so you can watch the outriggers depart and paddle away in the early morning. We really enjoyed the easy access to all other parts of Maui with the central location. A grocery store is just minutes away and lots of great restaurants in the many upscale resort in Wailea (15 minutes down the road). Lydia is the most friendly and accommodating host. We couldn't have been happier with our stay for 10 days. Aloha!

We had the best stay at Lydia’s property in Kihei. We went for our honeymoon and it couldn’t have been more perfect. It’s in a great location and has a beautiful view of the ocean! You can hear the waves from the bedroom which is amazing. It was super clean and the communication with Lydia was great. We highly recommend this place and would love to come back in the future!!
