My in-laws own 3 time shares here and my wife and I have stayed here twice for 2 weeks each during the last two summers. It's really a nice place. It has everything you would need, except quick access to a nice beach. That's really the only drawback. If you place a high priority on quick (walking distance) beach access, this isn't your place. But it's very relaxing, there is lots of open space between the two buildings. Each unit has at least a partial ocean view. The units themselves come quite well stocked with just about eveything you need. There are 6 gas grills on the grounds for everyone to use. We stayed in a one bedroom and it was perfectly clean and everything worked well.
A couple minor problems should be noted. On our first stay here the AC didn't work. But the service people did a good job of replacing it within a day or two.
During our most recent stay from July 23-Aug 4 2005, one of the elevators (closest to our unit) didn't work and apparently hadn't been working for some time. Also, all the trash shutes were closed so we had to carry all our trash down 4 floors.
Also, I don't understand why so many of these time shares and condos haven't upgraded from a VCR to a DVD player. Seems like such an easy and inexpensive upgrade. This is common in many places like this that we've stayed. We brought along our own portable DVD player so it was ok, but they could at least put in a DVD/VCR combo unit for those that still watch VHS (does anyone still do that?)
These minor inconveniences aside, the Maui Sunset is great. Very quiet, plenty of ammenities, a nice pool, a putting green, shuffle board, and 2 tennis courts (as long as you don't mind the gusty winds in the afternoon). There are some great beaches and snorkeling spots close by and plenty of awesome golf courses as well. Also very quick access to several shopping centers.
One side note, there is an awesome farmers market just down Kihei road (to the north). It's open MWF from about 1-5. Big Wave Cafe had great food as well and very close by. Great fish market at Eskimo's and (believe it or not) great local meat selection (from Maui Cattle) at Long's Drugs! Who would have guessed?
