This oceanfront property at the northernmost end of Kihei isn’t a resort, but it is worth a second look. From the outside, the older building might seem shabby, but on the inside the privately owned units shine—and rates are good, even with all the fees. Avoid the lower-priced studios facing noisy Kihei Road. Instead, go for one of the oceanfront units (such as no. 203, which hangs over the pool). All have full kitchens, washer/dryers, and private lanais with truly spectacular views of 3- plus-mile-long Sugar Beach. Twice a week the management hosts social events for guests to mingle: Wednesday pupu parties and Friday morning coffee-and-doughnut get-togethers. Tip: Ask for some leeway with the 10am checkout time.
