“Winter getaway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Stayed in building B, you should know that in this building your Lanai faces north and gets no sun. Overall a good location, close to beach and shopping, restaurants etc. Was really windy when we were there so didn't afford any opportunity to spend much time on beach. The grounds are very well kept and it seems to have a timeshare vacationer atmosphere.

Room Tip: Line up for breakfast at the Kihei Café. Quite good, and a lot of locals eat there

Maui Sunset was easy to check into and we were thrilled to see how nice our condo was. The beach, pool and grounds are wonderful. We will definately be spending more time at this location in the future. This was our first trip to Maui, and this property was recommended by a friend.
The unit we stayed in was A306.

This is a very nice place to stay! The unit that we stayed in had a great view of the ocean. On one of the last days that we were staying on Maui we saw some whales playing in the ocean at sunset! What a sight! Whenever the whales are playing in the area you can see them from the porch! If we were given the chance we would stay here again! The pool is very nice and it is close enough to walk to most stores. It is also not very far from a beach!

Aloha, Thank you for your review! Next time rent one of the paddle boards in the morning and go out about 1/4 mile...you'll find the Turtles there and the whales jumping further out in the bay. Amazing.
Mahalo,

Avoid this unit and Maui Holiday as your booking group. We are regular visitors to Maui and this the the only time I could not wait to get back home. Unit 302a is disgusting:
- filthy carpets, walls, linens
- everything says cheap about this place from dishes, knives to linens or should I say Rags!
- once Maui Holiday has your $$ they don't want anything to do with you and have limited knowledge of this unit
- mystery stains, mystery smells plus a bright light right outside the bedroom windkw that is on 24/7
Go somewhere else so you don't spend part of your vacation washing blankets and walls like I
had to
- open drug use on the beach outside just an added bonus
Maui Holiday and ow ers here should be ashamed - this place is an unpleasant experience all around.

Room Tip: Do NOT book with Maui Holiday and defs not Maui Sunset 302a

Aloha, Your experience is not typical of the Maui Sunset, and I thank you for taking the time to post a review. Even though I don't manage the condo you mentioned I reached out to the booking agent and the management company that rented the condo to see what more I could learn.
Here is there abbrievated response "(The guest) called...18 days prior to arrival date, and no one else had accommodations available – It was not a unit within our rental program, and I distinctly remember not hyping or over-selling what the unit was: a standard unit that had not been upgraded by the owner. I even sent photos of the condo. If we had been given notice about any of the items addressed we would have made every effort to rectify the situation – or refunded money..." ~ Maui Holiday
I do hope you decide to return to Maui Sunset and try out one of the other vacation rentals. Perhaps by booking directly through a management company that specializes in Maui Sunset you will have a better experience .
Again, Mahalo for your review.
Steve







Vacation rentals at Maui Sunset remain the best option for beach front accommodation. During the winter months the property is 100% full. There is not better place to enjoy the manicured lawns and watch the whales in the bay.

Mahalo,
Steve

We stayed here for three days before getting married in Kauai last summer. We went through VRBO to book our room which was very easy. The condo we stayed in was nothing fancy and not particularly modern, but we didn't need any more than what we had since we didn't spend much time in it. We loved the lanai and took advantage of the pool and hot tub. The grounds were beautiful and were extremely well manicured. Our power went out one afternoon/evening after using the hair dryer, and since it was the weekend and later in the day, the front office was not open. We went down to try to call maintenance, and after awhile someone showed up and we were able to correct the problem. We couldn't find the electrical box, otherwise we would have fixed it ourselves. We found out that it was hidden behind a small portrait in the living room (the one place we didn't look). We received a phone call first thing on Monday morning from the local rental agency that the owners use and they were very kind and apologetic.

We enjoyed visiting with the people who lived there full-time, who stayed a few weeks as a timeshare, and with other vacationers like us. You obviously don't receive the same service as you would at a hotel, but we enjoyed our time here very much.

We love Maui Sunset! Very peaceful, wonderful Sunsets! Upper floors are better if you don't want a lot of kid noise. They do book kids so next time we will request a room on 4th floor or 5th floor (if available).

Room Tip: I would rather of had B side and 4th floor or above. Not as much sun on B and the higher the better...

Staying in Maui, we made sure to not spend so much money, so instead we found these condos. The room we got was OK. Though if we left bread crumbs on the table for about an hour, out of no-where the ants came? That was strange! But overall the service and the sleeping was great!
