The short of it:

Bottom line: If you are looking to stay at a QUIET, non-smoking resort in a beautiful, well appointed and spacious condo literally steps from the ocean teeming with turtles – this place is heaven.

If you are looking for a huge resort with multiple pools, lots of noise, restaurants, shops, and bars with a party atmosphere – look elsewhere.

The long of it:

I'm a skeptic. I have trouble believing reviews that are almost all superior. But I can give this condo nothing less. This three bedroom condo exceeded our expectations. It is ultra modern, roomy, very clean and beautifully decorated. Marilyn, the owner, is awesome. She responded immediately to all my emails. She provided us with clear directions, valuable local information and travel hints. She has gone above and beyond to make our stay amazing. From the welcome pineapple and box of chocolates to comfortable beds and crisp linens, she has thought of everything. The kitchen is ultra modern with soft closing drawers, dimmer switches to adjust lighting and has every appliance and utensil you can think of. There are also double and triple sets of dishes and glasses (including plastic ones to use at the pool), so you don’t have to wash after every meal. We travel quite a bit and I have never stayed at a condo that had so many things supplied from dishwashing detergent and cleaning supplies to paper products. There are also “left behinds” (by other guests) such as tea and spices, even aluminum foil if you choose to use them so as not to have to buy full sizes. I’d recommend you first check what’s in the condo before you make a shopping trip. There is an extensive list on the website of things provided in the condo. Read it carefully before you pack. You'll be surprised how many things are there for you. In addition, there were things like water shoes, fins, a mask/snorkel, and even insect repellant. Perhaps they are also “left behinds,” but great to discover!

Read and BELIEVE the other reviews, descriptions and pictures on their website – they are accurate. This condo is fabulous. And of course, there is the spectacular, breath taking view.

Nota bene: Sunset Shores condo is located in a place that is NOT your typical “vacation resort.” In order to love it as much as the rest of us did, it has to be a good fit for what you have in mind. The following can be “negatives” for some, perfection for others. This resort is small, only two stories tall, and very, very quiet. In fact there are quiet hours from 10 PM to 8AM. There is no smoking allowed anywhere on the property (that includes the common areas and parking lot) not just in your unit. This is wonderful if you hate smoke drifting into your “non-smoking unit,” but it’s not your resort if you are a smoker. The condo is located on the second floor so you have to be able to climb stairs. The access to the small, but really nice secluded beach may be a challenge for some with mobility issues. It is just a small switchback toe path on a sandy embankment which is at about a 30 degree angle – no stairs. But people go up and down just fine. And even if you don’t climb down, you are so close that sitting on the lanai is like sitting on the beach. The beach area (as depicted in the pictures) is rocky as is most of the shallow area. Bring water shoes. Swimming and climbing rocks to watch the turtles will be a lot more fun! Don't worry that the unit is not air-conditioned. We found that keeping the curtains drawn during late afternoon and the cool breezes off the water after sunset made it very pleasant. There are also multiple fans (ceiling and stand alone) for the really warm days. Finally, the birds WILL wake you up. The south side of the unit has beautiful, jungle-like foliage that abuts the property that’s home to many birds. I loved their morning cacophony, but if that’s not your thing, bring ear plugs.

Can't believe I found this gem. We are a family of 6 with young adult kids. The 2 King and 1 Queen bed suited us just fine. Extremely clean, well maintained and well equipped with lots of extras. The owners thought of everything and then some, and were very accommodating and flexible. Stunning location. Better for those who don't like the crowds on the hotel strip. Lots of great stuff nearby (restaurants, shopping etc.) Great snorkeling with sea turtles right outside your door and a glorious pool - small but well suited to the property and lovely in the evenings. I highly recommend this property for your Maui vacation.

Liked best: Fabulous location on a fabulous property in a great area of Maui. So well provisioned!
Liked least: People in the loft means extra quiet mornings. Not a problem for me but worth noting for others.

“Perfect Place to Stay”

I looked at lots of possibilities before deciding on this condo for the 6 of us (3 couples) to stay for our week in Maui. From the moment we walked in the door, we were not disappointed. The view alone was worth it all!! There was plenty of space for all of us and I have to say that this is the most organized, well equipped rental in which I have ever stayed. Marilyn has thought of everything you might need for activities, comfort, cooking, etc.

We did several meals on the grill and ate while watching gorgeous sunsets...different every night. There are numerous places in the vacinity to shop for food, inlcuding fresh fish. We hated to leave because we were so comfortable watching and listening to the surf on the lanai. There is a small sandy beach just down the hill which is a good starting point for snorkeling. Turtles are abundant up and down the rocky area and one of our ladies had fun swimming with them. We also spotted some seals one day in the distance as well.

The tropical breezes were normally cool enough that we didn't care that there was no air conditioning (except for the middle room downstairs, which was hotter than most). Fortunately, being on the 2nd level we were able to keep windows open all the time. And, at night, the sound of the surf just lulls you to sleep (I will miss that).

The complex itself, Polynesian Shores, is very nice. The landscaping is beautiful, the pool was perfect, grills extremely modern and clean, and the people staying there (transient and local) are very friendly.

I just want to say "Mahalo" for the most restful stay I have experienced in all my trips to Hawaii (and my husband and I have been to all the main islands on numerous occasions). This was a first time visit for the rest of our group and they are ready to plan their next trip. We would all return to this location in a heartbeat!

The condo size was perfect for our adult family of five. So many little amenities were provided by the owner, we were quite comfortable. But the proximity and view of the ocean is spectacular! We saw sea turtles every day from the lanai, but we could be even closer on the beach in 1-2 minutes! Shops and restaurants were within walking distance nearby. We think we preferred the cozy community setting better than if we had stayed at one of the big resorts. We would love to come back again.

The views, condo, water, weather, and sight seeing were wonderful.
To snorkel with 5 large turtles at the same time was awesome, and only 300 feet from the condo. We all did this for 3 days straight. They were everywhere. The condo had everything we needed for stay. Everyone had a great vacation. I would recommend this condo to everyone. You will not be disappointed. AAA+

Greg: Your comments echo our feelings as well. We have a terrific location, a fabulous view, and because our condo is in a low-rise resort, it is peaceful, uncrowded, and easy to relax. Our new kitchen is great for entertaining. We look forward to your next visit. Mahalo, Marilyn
