... for next time, paddle boards and golfing on the next visit.
Our last day was wonderful, my beach walk was beautiful we had our best weather day and were both very thankful to have a late checkout. No wind and 88F just perfect. We made our way to the Olowalu beach for a few hours to try snorkeling there again, last time it was rather rough. We went for an hour long snorkel and swam with a huge turtle it is a really great site.

Had three hour delay due to understaffing at Indy. Then passenger became ill and we returned to terminal for paramedics. Spent the night in Phoenix then flew Portland to Maui on Monday. Long flight but worth it. Condo had live Hawaiian music with hula dancers young and old at the pool yesterday. Life is ...
... nice as some we have stayed in on this trip, but at the end of the day we probably won't spend much time in it anyway. Feeling a bit deflated, we unpacked and got changed for dinner then went for a recce round the grounds. With all the tiki torches lit, the palm trees slowly blowing in the breeze and the crashing sound of the waves along the sea edge, this place was starting to grow on us! After a walk around the grounds, we made reservations for dinner and enjoyed a Mai ...
... Yellow, blue, red, pink, green, black, white, and silver. It was amazing to see sights like this that before I've only seen on movies or in aquariums. My two favorite fish were the Angel Fish, and also a long, really thin silvery fish that I can't remember the name of.
After snorkeling for a while, Stephanie and I decided to try out the slide attached to the boat. We went down, snorkel and flippers and all, and splashed down into the water. It ...

This day the town was full of cruise ship passengers. I love walking along Front Street and checking out all the shops. The most important stop for Heidi was to have her much dreamt about shaved ice. We decided to go to Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice. It was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Maui Sunset Condos Kihei
Loved the Maui Sunset.
We went there August 12 through the 20, 2004.
Although some areas in the condo (A306) could use some updating, the place was very clean. No creatures either! The grounds were kept really neat and trim. The BBQ grills were cleaned daily and every person that worked there was very friendly. Check in and check out was very quick and easy. Parking was free and plenty of parking spaces. Good location too. I hesitated about putting in a review because I didn't want everyone to book their vacations there! Got a great package deal through Hotels dot com. ---------------
You really can't beat it for the price.
Great for a honeymoon!!
My wife (fiance at the time)and I stayed here for about a week in April 04. We just loved the place, and got married on Maui when we were there. This place is excellent, clean rooms, helpful front desk, gorgeous golf course grass. The beach does have seaweed, but is cleaned daily. Awesome views in almost every direction. Nice social gatherings nightly around the grilles while your cooking. Good central location near everything you'll need...food stores, gas, strip malls. We're already planning a return for our 1st anniversary, and will probably return several times yearly. We highly recommend this place!
Just got back from a week at Maui Sunset April 3, 2004. Mostly agree with the other comments- great value, convenient location, great pool, beautiful well-kept grounds. Our condo, however, (1bd/2bath POV) was not as clean as one would like, getting a little old and worn out in places, and the bathrooms were small. After glancing at some surrounding units being cleaned, we determined that some units are in better shape than others. Also, be sure to get a condo that is away from both the stairway and elevator (noise). The location is great, with markets, beach gear rental locations, and fairly inexpenisve restaurants close by. For beaches as noted, one must drive to another location as the beach in front of the complex and in that area of Kihei is not good for swimming or sunbathing. Would definitely consider staying here again.
The 5 of us stayed at the Maui Sunset in Kihei. It was a rental condo and was perfect for our needs. It was located on the beach and our room had a view of the ocean. Activities we participated in were: Trip to Hana by 12 person coach. It went all the way to Hana and around the southern coast of Maui and back to Kihei. It was worth every penney. Two teenagers came back effusive with all that they learned from the driver. The snorkel trip by the Pacific Whale foundation was wonderful.. We saw breaching whales, sea turtles, and spinner whales which put on a show. The knowledgeable staff was outstanding. The helicopter ride to Hana and the volcano was o.k. but nothing compared to an earlier ride in Kauai. Don't miss shopping and eating in the town of Paia--back to the 60s type town which was really fun.
Love the Maui Sunset - Frequent Visitor!
We have been visiting the Maui Sunset for the last 6 years and truly love the experience. The complex is clean, quite, and offers a vacation "suite" at a fraction of the cost of a hotel!Maui Sunset is ocean front, so I windsurf can windsurf form the condo, and spend the evenings watching the sunset from the beach. What could be better!?
We have stayed at the Maui Sunset about 9 or 10 times over the past 15 years, using at least four different condos. Some were two week timeshares that friends loaned us, the others were rented from a private owner. Reservations are already made for July, 2004 for another 3 week vacation! The condos are clean, comfortable, well maintained, and furnished just like home. The lanai is a real plus, with views in every direction. The location is centrally located to everything. Yes, the beach is full of seaweed, but good swimming beaches are not far away. Azeka's shopping center is walking distance - about 2 blocks. The grounds are immaculately maintained by Sonny and his crew, who have been there as long as we have been going to the Sunset. The pool is one of the best on Maui. Barbecues are in use every day and are a popular gathering spot for good conversation. We can not think of another place we would want to stay besides the Maui Sunset. The affordable price makes it even more appealing, especially for families. Aloha!
It was a home away from home!
Me and my Fiance (whom has stayed in the condo preveously) vacationed here in September of 2002. It was my first time and it was just terrific. I loved the view and the cool hawaiian breeze from the private balcony. Hope to move there soon.
We stayed on the bottom floor which was great because we had kayaks, also the gas grill was a couple steps away. The Maui Sunset was a large, clean, comfortable condo (for 2 couples.) The kitchen was fully equipped- we lacked for nothing... they even had extra snorkeling gear in the room.The grounds of the Sunset are beautiful, full of flowers and sparkling clean (the lawn is like a beautiful soft carpet) - fun to eat outside on the terrace and just totally relax. The beach out front may have seaweed but the wind & kite surfing are stellar in the afternoon and the natural (old) fish pond is fascinating as are the locals that come to harvest seaweed and fish in the morning. I think it makes for more interesting place to be. We visited Maui to spend quality beach time at any of the amazing beaches that were 10 - 15 minutes away. If we forgot something, it was no big deal to come back. Just make sure you take the Piilani Highway (31) to avoid the slow part of south Kihei road if you want to hit the snorkeling spots early. Grocery stores, tons of shops and restaurants are right there. There are even several medical clinics (very handy when I needed 5 stitches.) For the great beaches and services the Maui Sunset is the place I will return to.
Stayed at Maui Sunset in April 2002. Nicely maintained grounds, large lawn, good pool, nice view, community feel, easy to connect with other families, clean, privately owned condo's rented through various agencies, most are good, some better than others, one, two and three bedrooms. Alot of repeat customers, we met some families that have been coming back annually for over ten years, we are going back for the second time in April 2003. Some permanent residents. I'd give it a 3.5 because of the above attributes. It's not even close to the Fairmont 'high end' (which is 3 times the cost) and the beach is not that great out front (the good Kamaole and Wailea beaches are less than a 10 minute drive away). But for someone with kids looking for a great getaway and value in a very nice friendly setting the Maui Sunset was perfect for us.
Our family stayed at the Maui Sunset Condo's over Christmas 2001. The condo's are privately owned and some have more furnishings than others. Ours was on the 4th floor and overlooking the lovely grounds. Clean, 1 bdrm. with ample pull out couch for our 2 teenage sons. Golf course grass, nice pool and hot tub. Property is right on the beach, but the beach is a 'rough jewel'. We travelled daily to different beaches. Beautiful views though. We would definately return here!
