“Loving the Maui Sunset”
Reviewed August 6, 2007

As I am writing this, the sun is rising over Haleakala and is illuminating the West Maui mountains in the distance. We are staying in unit B120 [--], rates are extremely reasonable. The unit is slightly outdated, however, it is clean and well kept. This only makes it a bargain, as the renovated units cost more. This is a ground unit, so it easy for the kids to go the pool and for myself to keep my windsurfing equipment and head on the water at a moments notice. The area gets very windy in the afternoon. As you probably have read from other reviews, the beach is not really a swimming beach, as it is exposed to the wind and does smell of rotten seaweed (the beach cleaner has not been to the beach yet), but you do not smell it 50 feet away from the beach. You are however, only a 5-10 minute drive to best beaches on Maui. There is a wonderful pool which is right in front of our lanai and it is very large and clean.

If it were not for the beach, I would have ranked it excellent.

As part of our wedding gift, a family member booked our stay at Maui Sunset. These condos are both owner-occupied and time shares. Our unit was an ocean view. It was a very nice room decorated with floral wicker furniture.


There is an activities desk on site that helps you plan your stay and book activities. They have an informal information session every morning and serve juice, coffee and pastries. There are also tennis courts on site.

The outdoor grounds at Maui Sunset are lovely, with manicured grass courtyard, pool and activities. I booked the reservation based on it being advertised as ocean front condo, altho our room did not have an ocean view, so that was a little disappointing. Our room
(I think it was B-204) had laminate peeling off the bathroom door and a couple other similar things in need of maintenance. I think it depends what room you get. I would stay there again if I book a different room through and individual and know what I'm getting.
Maui is beautiful and I had to almost pinch myself to realize I was really in Hawaii! We also enjoyed the van tour to Hana.

  • Liked — over looking court yard grounds and close to ocean
  • Disliked — the unit we had needs some repair and maintenance

My husband and I went to Maui to get married and at the last minute decided to extend our stay on the front side -- therefore we needed a place to stay for those extra days. We were VERY lucky to have gotten unit A314 at the Maui Sunset. This one bedroom condo is beautiful. The kitchen has been updated and it is bright and cheerful inside. There were many extras left in the closet for us to use -- i.e. boogie boards, tennis equipment, beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels. These owners definately take pride in their unit. Since the condos at the Maui Sunset are privately owned, if you have never stayed in a particular unit before or do not have a good referral, you may not get a clean, updated unit. This one definately ranks at the top of the list! We plan to stay in this unit next time we visit Maui!

We stayed at the Maui Sunset Condo from April 3-11 2007. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is nice and the staff are all very helpful. You can play bochi ball, shuffle board, put for golf, play tennis. So much to do. It is very child friendly. Very close to great shops and restaurants. The beach is not a swimming beach, but a great place to sit to watch the sun set while drinking a mai tai. We rented a 2 bedroom condo and it was huge! Saw a lot of whales from our lanai also. Will stay again.

My Wife and I stayed at the Sunset in the first week in April, 2007. My sister got married on the Maui Sunset grounds near the beach. There is no doubt that the Maui Sunset is in an absolutely beautiful setting. However the condos are hit or miss. We missed on this trip.
Over 40 people came to Maui for my sisters wedding and all of them stayed at the Maui Sunset. The range of condos went from very nice to total dumps. We had B121. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ROOM!!!!! It is in such bad shape. I don't even know where to start. How about the dead bugs we found in the cups in the cupboards? How about the stained carpet? Or even better the second bedroom that smelled like cat [--]. The beds were like sleeping on the floor! Hard as a rock! The furnature was old and out dated. The walls were dirty. Even the cupboards were sticky. The grime on the shower was just disgusting. I just can not say enough bad thigs about this dump. DO NOT STAY IN THIS ROOM!!!! B121, remember that number.

I have been the owner of this unit for many years. This review is an anomaly. Over the reviews this unit has been very popular. There are people who stay here on a regular basis returning year after year. I also stay there once a year. That being said, I will contact the vacation rental agency and ask them to talk to their cleaning crew.

We recently returned from a quite pleasant nine-day visit to the Maui
Sunset and are very happy to have stayed there. The grounds are beautiful, the place was friendly and it was very kid-friendly without being overrun with little ones.

We stayed in A106 and think the ground floor is the way to go. One caveat, the "06" unit's bedroom is under the elevator covering, so you don't get any light in the bedroom. We didn't find that to be a problem since we didn't spend a lot of time there, but if you want to wake up and see a great view, you won't have one.

There was a putting green just outside of our lanai, they had croquet and shuffleboard areas and a nice pool.:) The grill area is great and very hoppin' at night. The beach isn't a swimming beach, but the sunsets are beautful and the kids enjoyed playing in the sand as we watched the sun dip below the horizon. There's a good run along the beach, if you don't mind running around coral and seaweed, since it's a peaceful stretch.

The people were very friendly and we will definitely stay here again. Two thumbs up!
