Outdated and not up to code
Unfortunately we cannot recommend this unit - the dryer vents into the bathroom which is out of code and a fire hazard. I don't know if all units are like this, but be warned! There is a sign on the dryer saying that when using it you should turn on the vent fan in the bathroom and close the door - when we did this it made the walls drip with condensation and made the dry towels in the cabinet damp - encouraging mildew! Aside from this, the unit is very outdated and not well appointed - no beach items or other things that other condos on Maui we've rented have provided. The kitchen was well stocked but tiny and needs updating. Even though the check-in sheet says we'd be provided facial tissue, we were not, and when I asked at the amenities desk, they said they don't provide it. We were a family of four staying for four nights and they only provided 3 small rolls of toilet paper, and when I went to the desk to ask for more they said it would be $2/roll! Thankfully my on-island family felt pity for me and gave us 2 rolls of a toilet paper and a box of tissue. When I complained about not being supplied enough toilet paper, one of the ladies at the amenities desk, while never rude, tried to explain the deal I was getting because a hotel room in Wailea costs $900/night --- there is no way one can compare the two! And I know there are much better condo units for the same price throughout Kihei and Wailea. In fact I rented a condo for my brother just a few minutes away and it was exponentially nicer than this unit and that VRBO owner was so much more accommodating and available. (We checked in on New Years Day so we had to call an after-hours number to check in over the phone; I had called earlier in the day to see if we could check in before 3pm but never got a call back; in contrast, the owner of the unit i rented for my brother OFFERED him an early check in because he knew we were coming from Oahu and would probably get to Maui earlier in the day than most.) The SBR pool was nice and it's centrally located for beach, Kihei, Kahului, and the best shave ice and bake shop. But due to the dryer vent issue and the not-so-great service, I would not recommend renting this unit or any other Sugar Beach Resort unit unless you can confirm that they don't have the same dryer issue.
