“The Best!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We have never stayed in a condo-style accommodation before and was unsure of what to expect. From the moment we stepped inside the condo we were on cloud 9. The process was super easy, the unit was excellent, the location was great and we couldn't have been happier. The grounds were clean, the pool was perfect and we didn't even have to drive to enjoy the beach. It was definitely a "do-over", and we aren't easy to please.

The best thing about this condo would be the grounds and view. Groundskeepers are out early every morning cleaning the pool, raking, mowing. etc. The condo is very close to Kihei shops/restaurants by car - it's a long walk with no side walk.

The exercise room was small, The elliptical was broken, no (or ineffective) AC - they had two fans going. The door to the room wouldn't open all of the way. No outside light or window.

Parking was good and free! Small beach was nice and popular with some early morning surfers, but not good for swimming. Popular tennis courts.

The room had all the kitchen supplies you'd need, but was not well cleaned. Cupboards were grimy; shower door, light switches, etc., not cleaned well. The arms of the sofa were stained/dirty and faded - kinda gross. In serious need of updating - stove top was also all scratched up,

Would have expected better for the price we paid. Would stay at Maui Sunset again - but not in A-222

After reading some terrible reviews regarding this property I was a little worried about my stay at Maui Sunset, but that quickly changed when I got to the condo grounds. The room and the grounds were clean and really well maintained. Our room had everything we needed, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, and much more. The only thing I was not a big fan of is the beach, can't really swim there. As great of a deal that we got on the room, I didn't care about the beach. My husband and I rented scooters ( walking distance from condo ) and drove around stopping at any beach we wanted. I will be back next year!

May 2 - 9, 2013.

I was totally impressed with my stay at Maui Sunset. Had no idea what to expect since it was my 1st visit to Maui. Close proximity to grocery stores, drug stores, shopping etc.

Accommodations were immaculate! There wasn't one bit of trash to be found anywhere. The grounds are kept in pristine condition. Our condo was extremely clean. Our condo came with towels, extra sheets, hair dryer, beach chairs, beach towels, cooler, iron & iron board, some condiments. Perhaps we were fortunate. Two washrooms came in handy.

Highly recommend. For the price and location, you can't beat it. Would definitely book this place again.

The location is right in the heart of things. Lanai views on one side the volcano and the ocean on the other. Great value, our condo had everything! Love it and would recommend for anyone looking to spend their cash on other cool stuff like shopping and eating instead of just over priced dwellings.

Aloha, So glad you found condo such a great value. Not many vacation rental condos or even hotel properties can match the large rooms, quality of gardens, ocean views for the money. Look forward to you returning soon!

These condos are older, but have been kept in excellent condition.Check in and check out went simple and fast. Our room (414B) was very clean and well stocked. We had a one bedroom with a comfortable queen bed. This unit has two bathrooms, which came in handy since they are both small. We enjoyed the spacious lanai overlooking the pool with a view of the ocean. The pool was basic but very clean and the grounds beautifully manicured. The beach is narrow and not good for swimming, but must be good for kite-boarding. I enjoyed a windy afternoon watching the many kite-boarders jumping and flipping right behind this propery. They do need to update their keying system. They give you sets of keys with two keys on each. One key for your room and one key to enter and exit the pool area. Kihei doesn't have the glitz and glamor of some other parts of the island, but is centrally located and a great place if you intend to explore the whole island.

Aloha and Mahalo for your comments. As with most condominium resorts on the beach in Maui the Maui Sunset was built a few decades ago. I'm sure you'll agree would rather be on the water then in a newer building across the street. Your condo was a renovated timeshare condo, from the photo looks like it was in the "A" building. I found your comments very thoughtful and will make sure our general manager reviews them.

The Maui Sunset is a nice condo complex with beautiful grounds and a very friendly vibe. The complex itself has received many detailed and favorable reviews on TripAdvisor. You can rent suites through a variety of rental companies (including the Maui Sunset itself) or privately through VRBO. We rentend A107 through VRBO and were very happy with the process and accomodations. The owner was very helpful and provided us with a list of local attractions and restaurants. We sent an email to the owner reporting that the lanai screen was torn - she had a repairman there to fix it within hours.

Each suite is decorated differently. Our suite was exactly as advertised in the photos. It has one bedroom and two bathrooms. It was perfect for our family of 4 (with teenagers) in that there was a sofa bed and a futon bed in the living room area. We really liked the large kitchen bar (some suites have a much smaller kitchen counter). It was very handy for unpacking groceries and packing picnics for the beach.The other nice feature of this suite is that it is not overstuffed with furniture and personal items. Also, it has strategically placed mirrors that make the suite look much larger than it is.

We loved being on the ground floor. We did not have an ocean view, but it was easy to access the bbq area and pool, we could stretch out from the lanai onto the soft grass and it was a short walk to the beach area. If you check the internet you can find floor plans of the condo complex so that you can determine exactly where your suite is located. We knew that our suite was next to the elevator area. Consequently, the bedroom window looks into the elevator vestibule with a bright light and a humming pop machine (does it ever get used?). During our two week stay, we heard noise in the middle of the night on 2 or 3 occasions (tourists heading out for sunrise at Haleakala?). On balance this was a minor inconvenience for us but something you should know if you are a light sleeper. The only other minor problem with this suite is that it does not have wifi (it has a internet plug in - but that does not help if you travel with a tablet). Our teens managed to find unsecured wifi hotspots on the property so that they could upload their snorkel photos to facebook, instagram, etc...

Because of the bedroom window, I am giving this suite 4 rather than a 5. However, this was a minor concern for us. We were very happy with A107 and would rent it again without hesitation.
