Frequently Asked Questions

    What do I need to pack?


    Most of our guests always over-pack for their stays on Maui. We are a casual resort island and all restaurants welcome guests in beach wear during the day and ‘aloha wear’ in the evenings. Unless you are going to the Haleakala Crater for sunrise (where it is very cold at 10,000 feet), you can get by with a swimsuit, flip-flop sandals, shorts, t-shirt, aloha shirt/blouse and a big smile. DO NOT OVER-PACK with beach gear. We lend out (at no cost) to our guests beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and ice for you to take to the beach or out sightseeing (Road to Hana, etc). We only ask that you help us keep our room rates down by returning them when you are finished using them.

    How far are you from little beach?

    We are in North Kihei and located 11 miles (15 minute drive) from Little Beach (Makena). Please visit our interactive direction map to see how easy it is to get there.

    Will I feel comfortable staying there as a non LGBT person?

    Absolutely! While we cater primarily to the discerning LGBT traveler, we welcome ALL awesome adults. (We are an adults only property). Our demographic is about 50% gay men, 30% lesbian women and now 20% heterosexual/bisexual/transgender. As we reject discrimination of any form we warmly welcome people from all walks of life.

    Is the whole property clothing optional?

    No, not the whole property, only the rooftop sundeck, pool and hot tub area are clothing optional. While the entire complex is gated, there are areas that can be viewed from outside, hence, we do ask guests to cover up when traversing to/from the room.

    Can you allow children?

    Because we have clothing optional areas of the resort, we are an adults only property. If there is a group booking of guests that take over the entire resort or buildings (for weddings, etc) we do make exceptions for the time they are booked on property. Upon occasion, we will make exception for guests with infants, provided they do not disrupt the peace and tranquility of other guests in common areas.

    Do you allow pets?

    Generally this is not an issue as there are strict pet travel restrictions to the State of Hawaii. Please visit the State of Hawaii website (that requires pretty onerous quarantine of animals prior to arrival) . http://hawaii.gov/hnl/baggage-claim/bringing-your-pet-to-hawaii Service dogs in all guest rooms, but we reserve the right to charge extra for deposit/deep cleaning. We also have a handful of rooms (100 building) that we allow pets to stay in, but charge a deposit and deep cleaning fee to cover the cost of removing all allergens for subsequent guests (extra sanitization, washing of all draperies, shampooing of rugs, etc.)

    Do you offer day passes?

    No, not at this time. Because we do not have a retail restaurant space permit just yet, our insurance coverage is limited to hotel guests and their visitors. We may revisit this policy in the future.

    Are there any gay bars or lesbian bars on Maui?

    There are no full time gay/lesbian bars on Maui at this time. Most of the LGBT social scene takes place in the daytime at Little Beach, Maui’s clothing optional beach with a large LGBT section. Maui Sunseeker guests also head up to the rooftop deck with their own cocktails or bottles of wine just before sunset for the breathtaking view and sharing stories of their day’s adventures. This is one of the best ways to meet other guests and have a small and comfortable social hour. All Maui establishments are very gay friendly and many establishments will hold ‘gay nights’, such as Moose McGillycuddy’s in Kihei or at Kono’s On the Green and Ambrosia Martini Bar.

    Are there any all gay activities?

    We are strong supporters of Maui Pride who host a monthly dine out group or a monthly LGBT hike that are both open to all. Maui Pride also arranges a monthly event, such as WhaleWatching tours (in season). Please visit www.mauipride.org for more information on these events.

    Do you have any rooms for guests in wheelchairs?

    As these buildings were built in the 1970’s and beach bungalow style, there are no elevators on property. While many of the ground floor rooms are accessible by wheelchair, we only have one guest room (#311) that is retrofitted for ADA compliance with shower and toilet handrails, etc. We also are compliant with an ADA compliant pool chair lift for our pool.

    What is the difference between your ocean view rooms and your ocean front rooms?

    Oceanfront rooms open directly out to the ocean with no obstruction of their view. Those rooms are primarily 111, 112, 113, 211, 212 and Penthouse Suite 221. Our ocean view rooms have a view of the ocean from their lanais or a window in the room. The ocean view rooms are mostly located on the second floor of the 300 building and have views of the ocean over the top of the 100 building (a one-story building). Both rooms in the 400 building (Penthouse Suite 421 and adjoining 422) have ocean views. So our ocean view rooms are 321, 322, 323, 324, 325, 326, 421 and 422.

    How do the room numbers work?

    All of our rooms have three digits. The first digit is the building number. The second digit is the floor of the building it is located on. The third digit is the room number located in that building and on that floor. All of our numbers (buildings and rooms) ascend as they are located further away from Wailana Place and the ocean. For example, room 111 would be in the building closest to the ocean and Wailana Place and located on the ground floor. 112 is in the building closest to the ocean and one unit away from Wailana Place but also located on the ground floor.
