everything was perfect, great room for one or two people. Amazing Beach location, would stay there again..

Jean was wonderful to work with, and answered all questions and inquiries about the property, as well as providing maps from the airport to the unit and check-in instructions. Upon entering the unit, I was struck of course by the view, it is fabulous! The kitchen is well equipped for all types of meals, although a bit enclosed for more than one chef. We enjoyed the privacy of the two-wing configuration of the bedrooms, which were nicely furnished, each with their own private bath. The living and dining rooms are large and also nicely furnished. If you come during whale season, be sure to bring binoculars as these wonderful creatures created a beautiful show for us from our private balcony viewpoint! I should also note that the resort grounds are beautiful, the pool is perfect and offers sunning location either pool or beach side. My only critique would be a more thorough cleaning of air vents and mildew around the bathroom window. The kitchen appliances are on the older side, while functioning fine, they looked a little grimy. Regardless, I would happily come to this unit again.

We loved this place! You just open your sliding class doors and walk right onto the beach and steps away from the pool! That convenience alone was so nice! There were also beach towels and chairs to use which was so nice. Everything in the condo was as described! A+++++

This was an amazing condo in the best location on Maui. Sugar Beach 504 was a perfect home away from home. Everything was as described (or better) in the listing. The binoculars came in handy and we were able to do some whale watching! The lanai had a perfect view of the pool and beach. Megan is a great host and provides everything you need, in both amenities and a detailed guide to the island. She reached out after we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed (which we did). We took several of her tips that made our stay even better. I highly recommend Sugar Beach 504!

Great location. Great views, right on the beach. We are location first people and this has a great one. Right on the beach. The condo inside is comfortable, but could use a little updating. But was as expected for the price range. Pool was nice and jacuzzi was great that it had one..many in the area don’t. Central located to plenty of grocery stores and super close to the harbor. Would definitely stay here again. Mahalo.

We loved our time here, the management thought of everything. They welcomed us with an anniversary gift, arranged grocery delivery and communicated great tips for the area. Quiet and clean condo in a nice low key location. Just a few steps to the beach and amazing sunsets from the patio! Highly recommended

We had a crunch move from Lahaina after being booked there for Daughters Wedding and Mike & Brenda were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING...! We felt that hold-your-breath- panic but they stepped right in, pitched in a perfect room, removed "Every" worry & Need to the dotted line, we needed nothing! And when a few things hit us unexpectedly with Rental Car, Late Flights, They stepped in to soothe those paths too! Such an incredible couple, and nice place, helped find close places to eat, shop etc. Just out of their way Helpful Hosts. My sister stayed at same Resort , different Room, different Host, and had "None" of the same services we had, tho' their room was nice enough, all the XTRA Touches we had from our Hosts made ALL the difference in the world in making a choice of returning!! Not a second thought will be given! Grateful from Oregon

Our family has spent a few vacations at Sugar Beach Resort, in various condo rental units. This condo was more nicely updated than some of the other units, it was clean, comfortable, and convenient. We enjoyed our 5th floor view of the resort overlooking the beach and ocean from the lanai. Communication with the owner was easy and friendly. We hope to return to this condo again on a future trip.

PH 40 at the Sugar Beach Resort was everything we'd hoped for. The unit was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. What sets it far and above other accommodations is the incredible double lanai. This was our living area for the week - all of our "at home" meals were enjoyed here and it felt like we were sitting on the beach without the threat of sunburn. Sunsets were spectacular. Sugar Beach is a wonderful, uncrowded place to lounge and swim in the calm waters. The best shave ice on the island is just a walk down the beach and across South Kihei Road. It's also the most central location to all of the high points on the island. Jean provided excellent communication and helpful information for our stay. We would love to stay here again in the future; it was the perfect home away from home in paradise.

We had a wonderful time at Sugar Beach Resort. My wife and I used to travel to Molly for the last 25 years of her life. It was her favorite place to go. I took my three daughters my daughter-in-law and my two granddaughters to go and see what we used to do. When they first walked in to the condo they came to me and said wow it's right there! I think I'm in heaven. The lanai has a wonderful View of the ocean and you can hear you're the waves as they lap on the shore. The condo was so cozy and the decor was perfect for our gatherings to discuss the adventures of the day each night. God willing my family will be back. Aloha

It was a very nice relaxing time at Sugar Beach Resort. Would definitely come again.

Overall stay was great! We really enjoyed this property. Only downside was the bugs that came out in the evening and swarmed the area and were drawn to lights inside. Even a brief opening of a door drew in so many bugs into the unit. I he bugs didn’t bite or anything but kids didn’t like to see them swarming the lights and ceiling. This isn’t the properties fault as they were all along the beach too. But would have helped to have some kind of bug spray to deal with them:) Overall this unit was perfect. Beds were comfortable and included everything we needed for a wonderful vacation!

I have stayed at Sugar Beach Resort before. The grounds are very clean and maintained. The unit was clean and had a good supply of cleaning products and paper products. During the third load of laundry the pump broke. I called the customer service desk and it was fixed by the next day. I shared the room with a friend/coworker. Since she had never been to Maui before I told her to take the bedroom and I would sleep on the sofa bed. The comfort of the sofa bed was just as expected, not comfortable at all. These are all minor things. We loved the unit and had a great trip.

LOTS of mosquitos on the balcony. I’m not sure if this place is worth the money. I feel it could use some updates on the inside and outside. Love that they gave you a small cooler bag with snacks! The kitchen has everything you need!

My wife and I had a very fun and relaxing stay at unit #504. The room was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The view from the deck and listening to the waves hit the beach at night were wonderful! The pool area, lounges situated in the grass among the palm trees, and easy beach access were a highlight to our stay. There is a sandwich shop located near the main office that had great food and very friendly staff, "Earl" was one of our favorites! This Condo is located in a great place to base all of our day trips being centralized to most of the places we went.

Comfortable and clean…unfortunately lots of little bugs…couldn’t be helped…so couldn’t sit on lanai. Otherwise all good!

Loved this condo! Everything was clean and functional, view was amazing, thoughtful arrival gifts and location was perfect for exploring all parts of the island. Our favorite part was coffee on the lanai in the mornings and walks on the easily accessible beach in the evenings. We hope to come back and stay again some day!

Our first trip to Maui was amazing. Our stay at Sugar Beach Resort was perfect. The resort grounds and pool area were maintained everyday and kept very clean.Being a beachfront resort it was great for taking morning walks on the beach. Our hosts were great with providing ease of access to condo and checking in to ensure our needs were met. Providing us with everything we needed for a perfect beach vacation. There information package they provided with there favourite places and things to see and do was perfect for our first time to Maui. I would definitely recommend Sugar Beach Resort 208.

All went well during our stay. We wound up driving 45 mins or so up to Whaler’s Village a couple times during our stay, which is more of a ‘hot’ area for tourists, but being able to return to the calm of the condo was great. Plenty of shopping opptys in the area, and being able to cook at ‘home’ was a great advantage. Was disappointed with the lack of basic condiments available, as stocking all of that is an expensive endeavor, and I assume all are either taken or pitched after our stay. I’m guessing it may be an aftermath of Covid, but we actually had to buy salt, which was rather disappointing. That said, we would surely stay here again, but would pack in more basic supplies.

My friend and I had a great time staying at Condo 424 at Sugar Beach. Was a wonderful place. We sat on the deck for many hours and enjoyed the sun and the view. Many wonderful walks down the beach looking for shells, dipping in the ocean and just absorbing all the positive vibes of nature. Great central location for heading out in all directions. I have stayed at Sugar Beach many years ago and will come back and stay here again in the future. It just feels like the perfect home away from home! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

This is our 2nd time at this condo although we have been in different ones at Sugar Beach and we enjoy this one the most. Amy and Larisa are very easy to get in touch with to help with any questions or problems. Well stocked and clean. Lovely beach to walk and close to everything.

This condo it lovely. You can't beat the location right on the beach. We loved waking up and having coffee on the lanai. It was clean, kitchen was well stocked and the bed was comfortable. Karen has a cooler, beach towels etc.

This was our 5th trip to Hawaii and 3rd to Maui. We loved the condo. Clean, great view and a great location that is quiet but still close to everything you want. Wonderful beach right down stairs. Was happy to find beach chairs in the closet. Thank you!

We liked this property and it suited our needs. The only thing was the bugs! We thought they were mosquitoes but were told by locals gnats. But seriously like hundreds of them on the external lanai doors, floor, walls. Clean when we showed up but the next morning so many bugs. The second night we were really careful with the lights, and my ocd husband even vacuumed the bugs outside…but they were back. So for us made the lanai not useable. Otherwise good!

This condo was overall good. Our family enjoys Sugar Beach and we have stayed their several times. The condo itself was clean, but very dated. In particular the carpets need to be replaced, they are probably original and are stained very badly. We did encounter some uncleanliness when it came to the pull out couch mattress protector and the management dealt with it EXTREMELY well. We told them and almost immediately a brand new one was delivered to us with no hassle. I think for the location the condo is a good value, but please give some consideration to making some cosmetic updates.
