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 excellent. 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.
