Sprawled on over 5 acres of prime oceanfront property in North Kihei, Maui Sunset is a two-building condo resort set in a lush tropical lawn that runs along Waipuilani Beach Reserve with a sand and coral shoreline protected by reef perfect for swimming, long walks and watching the stunning sunsets – all just a few steps away. Kahului Airport is less than 20 minutes drive from the resort while popular visitor destinations like Maalaea to the north and Wailea to the south are half an hour away.
Escape to a well-deserved island vacation and let Maui Sunset take you there with its 1, 2 and 3-bedroom condos that sleep up to six guests. Soak up the famed sunsets from the private lanai in a condominium with full ocean views, or get a glimpse of the sun streaking down the West Maui Mountains from a unit with partial ocean views. Lean out of your balcony and the sumptuously maintained lawn with a massive pool in the middle reminds you that you’re on holiday. Come in winter, and you’ll see humpback whales breaching just offshore from the front lawn of the resort or right from the private lanai of a full-oceanfront condo.
Open the double glass sliding doors and let the trade winds cool your living area, or turn on the air-conditioning for consistent temperature throughout, whether you’re in the bedroom, kitchen, or living room. Some condominium units are furnished with flat screen TVs in both the living room and the master bedroom so you can sink into the plush sofa or queen bed to catch up on your favorite programs. Stay in the loop with high-speed WiFi or use the condo’s telephone service to chat with family and friends back home.

Plenty of dining options are nearby but if you want your meals close at hand, take advantage of the vacation rentals full kitchen for piping hot coffee in the morning, crunchy toast, or a favorite meal from scratch. Spacious countertops and four-burner stoves make meal preparation a breeze so you can eat in as you often as you like! Dining areas in some units are designed looking out to the ocean, so you can either take your meals there or out on the balcony. Washing clothes is also made easier with washer/dryer in-unit.
Spacious South Maui Vacation Rentals
When you’re looking for a South Maui oceanfront vacation rental that provides ample space for the whole family, Maui Sunset has you covered. The open layout of the living area and the kitchen provides enough room to spread out and lends a spacious feel to each unit regardless of square footage. Open the clear glass sliding doors to further extend your living space. The island-style decor and furnishings inside blend well with swaying coconut palms, lush gardens, and views of the Pacific Ocean outside. The condominiums warm-color palette evokes a relaxing atmosphere while colored accents on the wall and on furniture lend a touch of style and understated tropical elegance.
Let the elevators take you downstairs for even more amenities to make this tropical holiday well-rounded. The huge 60-foot tile swimming pool and the pool furniture in the large deck area are a magnet to those who love to take a dip before venturing out. Practice your swing at the putting green or knock off pucks at the shuffleboard court near the pool. Sweat it out in the two oceanfront full-size tennis courts, workout room, or sauna, then soothe aching joints in the hot tub. The BBQ grills are found throughout the grounds, close to the pool and the courts, so the family can have a nice picnic after burning off calories.
For groceries and dining options, the Azeka Shopping Center is a few blocks down the road. Mexican, Asian and Hawaiian cuisine can be found within two- to three-mile radius. With the Paia Fish Market within 10 minutes drive of the resort, you can enjoy fresh seafood while getting a glimpse at the ocean view across the street!
Fringing the shallow waters of the beach in front of the property is a reef where sea turtles and colorful tropical fish abound. Put on your goggles for an underwater adventure, or make it more exciting and head north to Maalaea Harbor where snorkeling, diving, fishing, and whale watching cruises depart. Or if you want to stay close to land, Sugar Beach offers ideal snorkeling conditions just after the sun rises and before the day heats up and the waves start coming in. Learn to ride friendly waves, either on a surf board or a SUP board, at Cove Park about two miles down the coast.
Much closer, with calmer waters and none of the crowds, is Kalepolepo Beach where you can have your own slice of paradise while enjoying sunsets in solitude even as other Maui condo rentals are just across the road. The adjacent Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale Sanctuary Visitor Center has telescopes on their back deck for viewing the whales.
When you’re in South Maui, the Kamaole Beach Parks (I to III) are hard to overlook. Kamaole I is generally regarded as the first of those Hawaiian beaches that have an exotic look as you head down the coast from Kihei. The crescent-shaped white sand beach of Kamaole I is ideal for swimming in the mornings (as trade winds make the waters rough in the afternoons). Like Kamaole I, Kamaole II offers the same advantages, with snorkeling ideal at the tips of the crescent. Because of the calm conditions in the morning, Kamaole II is also a nice location for SUP boarding.
While still part of the Kamaole beach trio, Kamaole III is much smaller and more rugged in appearance than the other two, with a large grass area making up for its small beach size. For this reason, locals flock to Kamaole III for gatherings and picnics, so it offers a glimpse of local life and flavor that may be hard to come by in beaches geared for tourists.
