Why James & Lori Warden chose Maui

The purchase of this property was just the next natural step in our adventures. We were married on Maui many moons ago and this is our favorite island. We had to have this penthouse at Sugar Beach after sitting on the lanai, the views are amazing!

What makes this condo unique

There are very few Maui Condo Resorts where you are literally 50' from the ocean with a 5 mile stretch of sandy beach. The views range from Makenna to Maalaea Bay with Molok'i and Lanai islands in the distance.

Perfect for what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to spend a few days exploring the island so we really just wanted a place to sleep and eat breakfast. The Good: condo was stocked with just about anything you needed, very well organized, everything was labeled, everything worked, bed was comfortable, decorated nicely, very clean, sunset's were beautiful, owners responsive. The not so good: pool area was not what we expected, no umbrella's, no cushions on chairs around pool, not very inviting but we really didn't spend much time outside. Overall I would definitely go back there and spend the days out exploring the area. The little local bar/sandwich shop was really good, located on the property.

Most amazing condo ever!

  • 5 of 5

Sugar Beach Resort PH19 is the most amazing condo we have ever stayed in! The view is incredible! We spent most evenings on the lanai. It is located centrally to everything we wanted to see and do on Maui. I have never seen a condo as well equipped as this one! The only things we really needed to buy were perishable grocery items. The condo is absolutely private and the complex is very quiet, just what we were looking for. We had several really nice walks on the beach in front of Sugar Beach Resort and it wasn't crowded at all. Dina's Sandwitch shop is extremely convenient for a quick sandwich or drink and the shop next door (Maui Sights and Treasures) arranged a Road to Hana Tour and a Whale Watching tour. They were amazing and I think we got the best of both. We ate at Café O Lei in Kihei and at the Dunes Golf Resort in Lahaina and both meals were excellent. I wouldn't change a thing about this rental and we will definitely be going back.

Beautiful view, charming condo

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a condo on the beach with a wonderful view and we got it! We loved getting up and seeing the beautiful ocean every morning, watching the whales and their pups, seeing the effect of the sun coming up on Lanai and the Molokini Crater and listening to the sounds of the ocean.

The condo itself was icing on the cake, so tastefully decorated, very clean and cozy, and a bed that we would have loved to take home with us, it was so comfortable.

The kitchen was well appointed with anything you could need, including a cooler and ice packs for a picnic lunch that we took advantage of on our drive on the Hana Highway, a must do while on Maui and the highlight of our time there in our opinion. We saw so much there, beautiful seascapes, waterfalls, lush valleys, an ancient temple, Rainbow Eucalyptus trees and so much more!

It was very handy to have a washer dryer in the condo and allowed us to be able to pack lighter. Another plus was having the bathroom vanity outside of the shower/toilet area that gave privacy and saved time while getting ready every day. We were very impressed with the luscious beach towels that were available for our use instead of some tiny, cheap towels being provided (or none at all). Everything about the condo was quality and thoughtfully done and everything we needed was there.

Sugar Beach Resort was very peaceful, and although we didn't get the chance to take advantage of all the amenities during our short stay there, we saw many people enjoying the lovely pool and hot tub, walks on the nice stretch of beach there, and simply relaxing on the grounds which were very well kept.

The location is perfect for getting around the island. We spent time at Lahaina, (the Old Lahaina Luau is so well done and very entertaining), we went on a whale watch/snorkeling tour out of the Maalea Marina, and visited the Wailea and Kihei area, all very convenient from the condo as was the airport and Haleakala.

Everything about our stay was a pleasure, from planning to checkout and we highly recommend this as a great, relaxing place to stay, a very laid back atmosphere.

Mahalo, James and Lori for your hospitality and for a lovely place to stay and also for the welcome gift that we enjoyed very much!

Our one regret was that we couldn't stay longer, but we certainly hope to visit again and stay longer when we do.

Very nice condo with a great view

  • 5 of 5

All the amenities and very well stocked condo. Sugar Beach is ocean front and the views go on forever. We watched whales from the lanai and listened to the surf. Very relaxing. The bed is super comfy and the kitchen is well stocked with anything you need to cook at home. Would highly recommend this home

Awesome condo with a view

  • 5 of 5

Aloha. Where do you start? Views from the Penthouse are amazing with spacious balcony to watch the sunsets, whale watching and turtle watching. An excellent set of binoculars are provided to increase the experience. The condo is nicely decorated with excellent amenities such as TV, CD player, movies, wi fi, local & international phone calling, wireless printer, abundance of suite & beach towels, breach chairs/umbrella to amazing bedroom with lots of space for hanging clothes and dresser space. The bed is amazingly comfortable and great sleeps. The owners have thought and provided everything from soap,shampoo,conditioner, med's, medical kit, hair dryers, laundry supplies,towels,etc. The kitchen is spacious with cooking oils, spices, dishes, cooking utensils, paper towels,soap, garbage bags, easily to prepare three meals a day if you want. The owners have you covered basically everything from A to Z. The condo is well labelled to help you find anything and lots of info on the island and sights to take in. The condo is located on a beautiful uncrowded endless beach for long uninterrupted walks, runs,etc. Water activities are endless from swimming, snorkelling, kayak, outrigger clubs, canoeing to fishing. The condo is located close to well priced restaurants in south Kihei with lots of choices. Costco is a great start, ABC stores and farmers market close for fresh fruit and veggies. Every Wednesday n Saturday south of condo is Huli Huli chicken n ribs.....plater is 10 bucks....delicious...you will be able to see and smell from the beach.

The condo grounds are well maintained with pool, hot tub, covered cabana and dry sauna. Washrooms clean and well maintained.

No complaints. Happy with everything.


Maxine n Kirk.

Loved the View. Loved the Beach. Loved the Location. No Better Place to Stay on Maui.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have visited Maui on several occasions and we normally shy away from vacation rentals in favor of hotels. We definitely have changed our minds about condo vacationing for the better after our pleasant stay at Sugar Beach PH19. The absolute best features about this place are the ocean view and beachfront location. We started and ended every day of our stay out on the lanai watching the waves crash onto the sandy shoreline. Sliding glass doors make up the entire back wall, which makes it possible to see the view from the couch while inside the condo. We would leave the sliding doors open at night (with the screens drawn to keep a few, bitey bugs out) so that we could fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves, which we could hear all the way in the bedroom at the front of the unit. The ocean sounds masked any noises coming from around the condo complex, which made for an incredibly, relaxing and peaceful stay despite being there during the week of Christmas. It was amazing to be only steps from Sugar Beach, with its pretty shoreline, (mostly) sandy ocean floor, and warmer water than we found anywhere else on the island. There's an expanse of green lawn that separates the resort from the beach, with chaise lounges for sunbathing without getting covered in sand. We didn't care to use the pool or hot tub because they were crowded with kids, but we really didn't care because, well....THE OCEAN WAS RIGHT THERE! We loved the ease and convenience of the activities desk at the resort, which has snorkel gear and SUP paddleboards available for rental. We had our paddleboards over to the beach in a matter of minutes. Plenty of food options are available close by. Dina's SandWitch (with full bar!!!) is right at the resort and Sugar Beach Bakery (croissants, banana bread, coffee) is just a short walk down the beach. The grocery stores and restaurants of Kihei are all within a 5-10 minutes drive, with Wailea just a few more minutes past that. The only downside for us was the bed, which while King-sized was a bit too squishy and soft for our tastes. But that paled in comparison to everything else... Loved the location, the beach, the condo furnishings, and THE VIEW. We were also pleased to receive our full security deposit back via credit card within 7 days of checking out. We will plan future trips to Maui around this condo's availability, just so we can stay here again.
