We love this building and have stayed in several different units. The layout is excellent. The unit was clean and well appointed with everything we needed. I would absolutely rent this condo again. You’ll love the convenience of the market and bakery across the street. This is truly a wonderful rental!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The condo was the ideal size and location for our vacation. Located right on Sugar Beach with miles of beach walks in either direction with hardly any people (especially compared to Waikiki). Just across the street is an ABC C-Store and a local farmer market. Condo was clean, the balcony was a perfect size for sunset/whale watching and the bed was comfortable. Highly recommended

The grounds were well maintained and the condo staff were great.This unit was on the end near the canoe club so it could get a Little noisy early in the morning. The only thing that was a draw back were the transients who were hanging out at the beach later in the evenings.

Excellent location in Kihei. Condo is clean and very nicely remodeled. Have stayed on sugar beach many times and would choose this condo again.

This was a great condo, with ocean views and super comfy king bed (I have never slept better on vacation!). It is right in front of a more sheltered stretch of beach (not super wavy) and across the street from a great little bakery and fresh produced market. If you want to be a bit away from the busier parts of Kihei, this place is great!

We stayed here for five days at the end of February. When we entered the condo and looked out the balcony, we were immediately aghast at what was sitting on the beach right in front of us -- a huge, rusted, decommissioned military boat. The view was not what we paid for and workers on the boat made it impossible to have privacy or quiet. However, I wrote to the management company requesting some financial remuneration, since we would never have stayed here had we known we would be confronted with the rust heap. Fortunately they gave us back $500, about 10 percent of what we paid for five days. The boat was also later towed away, and even though it was in our sight on the side, at least it wasn't blocking our view. However, the boat had been there at least a month before we arrived and they should have warned us ahead of time. Otherwise, we enjoyed the condo. We were grateful for the ample towel supply, toilet paper and the few supplies in the kitchen such as plastic wrap, salt, pepper, etc. The location was great and made for easy drives everywhere. The washer/dryer were convenient. Although it was clean, the cleaning fluids used before we got there were so strong, it took us the entire five days of airing the condo to diminish the smell. Also, although it's modern and nicely furnished, don't expect a luxury, up-to-date condo. It has outdated popcorn ceilings, and kitchen cabinets that were difficult to open in a couple of cases, for instance, because there were no knobs.

This was a perfect location for our family trip to Maui. The view was outstanding, watching whales almost every morning, walks on the beach were awesome and quick access to farmers market and ABC stores were super helpful for breakfast and snacks. The room was very clean and provided several items that are helpful when traveling like soaps, towels, and beach gear. Our family of 4 loved our stay!

Comfortable interior with plenty of seating. The coffee maker needs replacement. The bathroom hot water takes 5 minutes to get there. The bed mattress should be replaced. But overall none of these items detered our stay. We have already booked for next year. Aloha.

The property was lovely...just as pictured. Clean, updated and very comfortable. The boats next store were fun to watch but they start early..6:30ish and their voices woke us up. Great beach walks with a bakery and ABC Store accross the street! The condo is very centrally located.

The location of the property left us pretty far from just about anything. There was very little within walking distance. Unfortunately for us the Chaparral boat wreck was directly in front of our condo unit. That's nobody's fault but made for an eyesore of a view. The unit was well equipped and comfortable. All things considered I would not stay in that part of Kihei again.

Enjoyed our stay in the condo - kitchen a little tight, and the condo could use an up-date, but worked well for us. The view---not so great with the beached boat out in front, but otherwise good area - loved the convenience of the mini mall across the street.

The view was fabulous. AC worked great! I think the condo should have a few more towels and warning on not running two many appliances/ blow dryers at one time. We lost power because we were using a blow dryer and dishwasher at the same time. We found the breaker box (in kitchen) , reset it and all was good.

Property was a nice location right on the beach. Sorry to say there was also a stranded 85 foot boat in front of us. Not the condos responsibility though. Condo was adequate and clean could use some updating but so could I at home. Barbecue is inconvenient and next to the garbage.. would have been nice to have a representative. Explain the workings of the condo but nothing too hard Here to figure out except the television! Susan was a great help

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The condo felt like it needed some personal attention. When we arrived we couldn’t open the slider or screen doors. Mgmt company (Sherrie) came to our rescue. Everything was comfortable just didn’t feel any love put into it. Absolutely fabulous view. We just didn’t feel like it was worth the price charged. Would stay at the resort again, but probably not that unit.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: No issues at all with this property. All booking correspondence was prompt and efficient and the property was as described. We arrived on a late flight (2am) but had no issue checking in thanks to a pre arrival text with maps and a door code. The condo was well equipped with everything needed for a two week stay. We have read several reviews that mentioned an issue with ants but we didn’t see any. Great location right on the beach and central on the island. Having an amazing bakery across the street was a welcome surprise. We will definitely be back.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We LOVE this location! Second time staying there!! The boat was a HUGE distraction from the "ocean view" and the noise from dealing with the boat- pumps etc.was very very loud. Hard to sit outside and have conversations. So that was not relaxing for us- until the evening then quite but there was the BOS U in our view of the ocean. NOT that serene ocean view we paid for or came for.Wondering if would be some compensation for that whole endeavor??? We know you had no control over the circumstances but seems like anyone staying at Kihei Beach should not be charged the full amount for an ocean view/relaxing grounds and our vacation. We felt like a small recliner and another comfortable chair in the living room would be helpful. Chairs not very comf- couch was great! And the above tenants seem to move their deck chairs alot and could hear them very clearly- usually when we were heading to bed. Maybe same was happening to whoever was below us??? Maybe better patio furniture. Again love this place and your services were great! But THE BOAT sure put a dampper on our expensive vacation- absolutely no beach to even walk on. And as we watched other try to walk on beach- many fell and was not safe. Apprehending back on any compensation for this BOAT that was not part of our stay!!! Paid top dollar for not a top spot 😕🤔

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great location with easy drive to Wailea and Kahului as well as tour companies for snorkeling and whale watching. Good food also nearby and Excellent shaved ice at walking distance. Great view for sunset. Very clean and well supplied but expected condition for furniture for ocean front property.From there went to Westin in Kaanapali for my conference and I preferred this apartment for its flexibility, location and closeness to much tastier food (less luxurious but better). The pool at Westin was much better of course).I would definitely stay there again if not near Hana.

This is our third time staying in this complex. Nothing fancy, just the best views of the ocean and the beach 20 seconds away. This unit was really nice and having 2 bathrooms was terrific.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The unit was nicely appointed. We cook a lot and found that there were enough pots, pans and dishes. The condo was clean and the decor was in keeping with the Maui vibe. Only criticism would be the location of the BBQ's. They are situated next to the garbage and thought that there were other locations that would have been better suited. NOTE: Not a reflection on the individual unit/owner. Decision was made by the condo board.

This condo was perfect for our family of 4 for 6 nights. As soon as we walked through the door, we were completely awed by the view out two directions from the main living area. Beach access is connected and easy to use, wifi works great, and listening to the waves crash every night while you sleep is priceless! The condo has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. Looks very much like the photos. The furniture is a little dated and the condo is located in an older building, but still very cute and comfortable and easy to use and enjoy. Also, beach towels, beach umbrellas, sand toys and Tommy Bahama beach loungers were all included. They were a complete lifesaver and we used them our entire vacation! Pool was great and very clean although we didn't use it (the beach is right there!) but we did wish we had access to a hot tub after dark. No hot tub on site.

We really enjoyed staying at this property. We heard the ocean all day, was right next to the canoe club and watched the canoes go out every morning, beach every day, Ululani's shaved ice and ABC Store across the street. Property staff were super responsive and friendly. We will definitely come back!

The view is most definitely the best asset of this property. Sitting on the deck watching the sunset and seeing the ocean with the beach literally within 50 steps is amazing. The beach is small but there is plenty of room for an umbrella and chairs and you can swim in the ocean without stepping on rocks really easily. The two boogie boards, snorkels and umbrellas were also handy. Cooler was small but it did the trick. However, this isn’t your 5 star rental. We asked for another bar of soap on the 3rd day and were told the 2x2 square in the bathroom was only meant ti be a “starter soap”. It was suggested we hit ABC storefor additional soap. This was the same for the shampoo, toilet paper and dishwasher soap. So if you want to wash dishes more than four times during your stay, I’d suggest you bring your own. I’d also suggest short showers if there is more than one person. The water heater will not provide two hot showers in a row. The kitchen coffee grinder was amazing but I would think a rubber spatula is a staple in most kitchens? Apparently not. Bring your own binoculars. I asked if they had a spare and was told I could procure them at ABC store. The bed here is uncomfortable and lumpy. The worst part is even with the blinds closed there is a bright light in the walkway outside that doesn’t turn off at night which means the light shines in your face. Also, blinds need to be closed at all times for privacy. Keep scrolling if you want the view. It has to be better

The property was great, right on the beach with an amazing view. Nice little hang out spot on the grass overlooking the water. Spacious deck as well which was perfect for morning coffee and wine at sunset. The location is great because it’s in a non-congested area but close to anywhere you need to drive to.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The views at this condo were the absolute best part of this spot! The window to the right as you walk into the unit makes the whole condo feel so open. It's right on Sugar Beach so you walk down and you can take a walk on the beach for a nice morning or sunset walk. Down the beach we were able to see sea turtles and so many beautiful views. The condo has a more updated kitchen which was nice. It was easy to get in and out of the condo and the main bedroom view of the beach and sea was so nice to wake up to. The patio furniture had a good quality and so nice to sit on as you eat any meals. Another thing we liked is having a washer/dryer unit as well. There's everything you need for cooking meals and also gear for little adventures like snorkeling and boogie boarding. Overall we would recommend this spot to anyone who wants easy access to the beach and close places like the ABC store for general items and Ululani's Hawaiian shave ice which we frequented. Thank you for the amazing stay!

An easy place to spend time and relax. Sunset views. Easy beach access. The kitchen has a view too. I enjoyed it as I cooked and baked. It does require a drive to big grocery stores and restaurants.

After visiting several sites that had vacation rentals, I found My Perfect Stays to be the best. They have a large selection of units at so many different properties. If you find a place on a different site I recomend going to My Perfect Stays site to see if they have the same property. The reservation process was very simple and the communication was perfect. I would use them again for my next Maui trip
