“Beautiful Grounds with Sunset”
Reviewed August 3, 2008

We booked this for a week through Armed Forces Vacation Club./RCI last minute during Navy Space A trip Dallas-Hawaii. Condo in a great location. We were on third floor in middle. Looked like unit was recently updated, kitchen well equipped. Clean, spacious it had Master with bath and hall bath for other bed. Nice Lanai overlooking grounds that are like golf course grass. From balcony could see both sunrise and sunset and moon at night with palm trees in profile. Beach is not good swimming beach as other reviews confirmed, nice beaches to the South and nearby. Sundays beaches popular lots of locals and tourists hard to park then. Unit well equipped, Kihei is a great location for Lahaina and other Maui travel. We rented convertible for week from Advantage at 50% off-well worth it in Maui. We did Road to Hana tour lots of scenery and curves. Got up early to see sunrise on Haleakala volcano well worth it. Best restaurant in Kihei is Stella Blues. In Lahaina went to Kimo's three times for views, Mai Tai's and pupus. Enjoyed Quicksilver Molokai snorkeling trip and Royal Lahaina Luau.

Spent a wonderful week at the Maui Sunset in unit A409 which has a spectaculare ocean view. It has a fully equiped kitchen, washer dryer, one bedroom, two bathrooms and sleeps 5 people comfortably. The complex is on the ocean side of the street so its less than a three minute walk across the beautiful grounds to the shoreline, and about 4 blocks from various shopping. It has a large pool, tennis courts, BBQ's, workout room, putting green, manicured gardens, activity desk and other amenities that make vacationing easy. I would highly recommend this resort and unit to any body looking for a great place to stay in Maui.

We stayed in Maui for 12 days! This was our first visit to Maui/Hawaii. We spent 10 days of it here at the Maui Sunset. I must admit I was scared after reading some negative feedback/comments on the place. When we pulled into the parking lot I was really disappointed thinking I was going to really not like this place. We were too early so they wouldn't let us check in. So we drove around the area to find out what was around us, etc. We came back to check in and again, I was very a little skeptical after pulling into the parking lot--you just have to remember you are pulling into the BACK of the condos. It felt like we were pulling into the Days Inn at first. We checked and finally got to our room. We opened the door and we both were in complete shock! This places is absolutely gorgeous! WE LOVED IT!!!!!! Our condo was flawless! It was clean, well-maintained and decorated very nicely! It felt very homey and warm. Then to step out on the balcony and see the beautiful surroundings just topped off the stay. The grounds are manicured so perfect we called it the "Brady Bunch Grass". Theres so many fun things to do here. Tennis courts, shuffleboard and a well taken care of pool. I cannot say enough good things about this place. The closests were stacked with things for us to use, including swimming fins, pool toys, coolers and games and tons of other things. The kitchen had everything you would ever want to use. I would give this place 5 stars but there were just a few problems we encountered...The first one was the front desk & the activities desk. When we first got there they were actually not very nice at all! We then booked 3-4 activities through the activities desk. I got very ill during our vacation and had to rebook one of our activities and we literally were on the phone and bounced all over the place at the condo for a good hour. The activities woman was on vacation after we booked these things and had no one to fill in for her. They should really have someone filling in if someone goes away! It was very aggravating! But, it all worked out and we finally took care of it. The other bad thing was you CAN'T swim at the beach..I heard two different stories on why you cannot swim there...Also, we were told when we got there the elevator was out and the pool was closed 4 days out of our week stay. Both things were closed due to renovations. Now, when your staying on the 4th floor and theres no elevator..try bringing up your groceries..it really was exhausting! What a bummer, too to find out you can't go swimming in your own pool! It wouldn't have been that bad if you could swim in the ocean there but you can't. With those only being the few minor complaints I'll DEFINITELY being going back to this place! Its perfect! Next time, I'll make sure the elevator and pool are working and book all my activities myself! Thats just my point of view...You will not be disappointed with this place...We both were happily & pleasantly surprised on how gorgeous it really was!!

  • Liked — The beautiful room & the gorgeous grounds and views of the ocean!
  • Disliked — The pool being closed and no warning of the elevator being shut down for renovations!

Vacationed at Mauii Sunset for a week in July 2007. we had a 2-bedroom 2 bath and it was perfect. less than $2000. for the week,. can't say enough for the location. The only downside, which we knew, was no beach. believe it when they say it, that line of grass you see is it, there is no beach, only slimey seaweed water with high waves. aloha.

My husband and I are always looking for value and we felt this was a very good value. The decor is dated, but who cares? We were only renting it for a week. We did not hear noise from neighboring units. The place was quiet with quiet hours between 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. Nice pool with free books available and lovely views. We never had a problem getting a chaise. Most of the units have an ocean view. We enjoyed our unit because it was not too close to the ocean/pool or street. Trash chute down the hall was very convenient. Well manicured grounds. We did not notice a strong seawood odor others have complained about and enjoyed sitting on the ledge near the water at sunset. Because the rooms are small most probably have queen size beds but do have a daybed in the living area. Our unit was well equipped. We liked having two TVs and a VCR, plus beach towels. Location was only 10 minutes to Wailea and convenient to all amenities one would need on a condo stay. Overall we enjoyed our stay enough to come back in the winter only. Note; air conditioning is window units and ours was on a four hour timer, which could be problematic in summer months. Bring earplugs if the noise from the AC will bother you while you are sleeping. Internet access available for a fee, but in our case was not reliable.

WE absolutely loved our condo. It was clean, tastefully decorated and well maintained. We had a partial view of the ocean from our lanai and from the beach viewed the most awesome sunsets and watched the whales play. We would definitely book with Elmer again and have no problem in recommending this particular unit.

Aloha...another beautiful 10 days in Paradise!
Booked our room via [--] #17278
Was lucky that unit b-421 was available. Some of the units in the Maui Sunset have not been updated. Be sure to ask if that's important to you, or ask to see pictures.
I know the owner a fellow kitesailer, but often this unit is booked so far in advance that I can't get it.
It is a direct ocean front. It's on the 4th floor of the B building. The B building does not get as much sun on the lanai and into the condo's as the A building. Doesn't get as hot...more pleasant in the afternoon. The direct ocean front units have huge lanai's. This one has a table with 6 chairs, a lounge chair and table. It is a wonderful place to be all day.
The unit itself is a 2 bedroom 2 bath. BOth baths have been redone since the last time we were here. Then master has a huge shower...the 2nd bath a smaller one. In the MBR there is a queen, the second bedroom has two twins, which worked for our kids.
The living/dining area is very large and comfortable. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room. We never ate at the dining rooom area table. We ate all our meals outside on the lanai.
The kitchen has also been redone....granite countertops and new cabinets. The whole unit has tile floors so no sandy, icky carpet! The pool is great, there's also shuffleboard, and a putting green. The gym is small but my wife used it daily. I like the location for kitesailing...my son took surfing lessons right in front. The beach was clean...I read about seaweed and the smell. In the times we've been here we have never experienced that. They have seaweed removal equipment that seemed to come by every other day or so...but there was almost always no seaweed to remove! The kids like to take the boogie boards out and go watch the tutles. The snorlking isn't as good here as the beaches in Wailea, but that's easy to get to. All the good things about this place ourweigh that little inconvience. Plus, you need to explore lots of different beaches in Wailea and Makena!
One of the things I like about the location of this property is that it's close to things in Kihei, but away from the noisy part of Kihei. The post office, McDonald's are about 2 blocks away. Star Market is about 4 blocks away. The drugstore, where they have a farmers market is 2 blocks away. There is a great restaurant, the Big Wave which is 2 blocks away. There is a flea market, a block and a half away. Other things are a short drive. This is great for my kids as they are old enough to walk to McDonalds or to the flea market on their own!
I always like to share a good experience or a good find...
