This page contains answers to common questions, along with some tips and tricks that we have found useful and presented here as questions.


How to get from the airport to Sugar Beach Resort?

Sugar Beach Resort is very easy to get to from the airport.  It's just under 11 miles and there are only a few turns you have to make.  Take a look at the Mapquest directions here (or google maps here).  If youíre not driving yourself, you can easily catch a cab at the airport and tell them to take you to Sugar Beach Resort.

Do I need to rent a car?

Most people do rent a car so they can explore the island.  But thereís so much to do at Sugar Beach Resort that you really donít have to.  You can swim in the ocean; take long walks on the beach; fish in the ocean; snorkel on the reef in front of the resort; sunbathe on the beach, pool or grassy lawn; have lunch or dinner at the Sand Witch; grill by the ocean and have dinner on your lanai; and go out for drinks at the Sand Witch.

Are there any good restaurants nearby?

Yes, the only problem youíre going to have is which one to choose.  There are a bunch of restaurants in Kiheióno more than a five- to ten-minute drive awayóranging from high-end haute cuisine to more casual and affordable places where locals go.  And there are two nice restaurants a couple miles up the beach in the small port of Maalaea: Buzzís Wharf and The Maalaea Waterfront Restaurant.  And Lahaina is a fifteen- to twenty-minute drive up the coast; youíll probably want to go to dinner there one night and stroll down Main Street among the crowd after dinner and look at the shops and maybe have an ice cream cone for dessert.

We keep a list of our favorite restaurants in the condo.  We like good food, and we think our recommendations, which cover a range of restaurants, are excellent.

Why should we choose your condo?

Because itís close to the perfect place to stay: first of all, itís right on the beach.  Itís not near the beach, itís not across the street from the beach; itís not even overlooking the pool by the beach; itís on the beach.  All you see is ocean and another island in the Pacific.  Second: Sugar Beach Resort is the perfect balance of a resort and a relaxing local place.  Thereís a beautiful heated pool and a store and restaurant on site.  You can even get a massage right at Sugar Beach.  And Elaine and Cindy at Maui Sights and treasures can help you plan activities if you want.  But thereís a local feel as well.  You wonít just be interacting with other tourists.  A lot of people staying at Sugar Beach own condos and live there for a certain amount of time every year.  And the bar is actually a local bar that all kinds of people go to; itís really one of the best local bars in Kihei.  And finally, Sugar Beach is not in one of the more touristy areas like South Kihei or Kaanapali. Itís by a protected bird sanctuary and right next to a couple miles of completely undeveloped beach, and thereís nothing but open land across the street.

What's provided in the condo?

Hairdryer, ironing board, bath towels and beach towels, enough pillows for the sleeper sofa, a coffee pot, all the pots, pans and utensils you need to cook, a land line phone to make calls, a TV (with basic cable) and a DVD player; a radio with a CD player. 

We also have a folder with our recommended restaurants and directions to various snorkeling spots.  And our amazing Mai Tai recipe is included for your enjoyment.  If you make these Mai Tais, theyíll be the best ones you have on the island.

Where exactly is your condo located in the Sugar Beach Resort?

Our condo is located on the 4th floor of the Plantation building. It is an end unit so there is an extra window looking south at Haleakala, Mauiís famed volcano. There is an elevator in the building.
