"With the magnificent Pacific views and elegant Maui condos along the beach, our stay here was magical."
“Great Location - Right on the Beach”
This is a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with ocean view. We stayed for 12 nights. It was our first time staying in a condo/vacation rental vs a resort or hotel. We were a little worried at first, but it turned out great. We were so much closer to the beach than we would've been had we stayed at a resort. We could watch the kids (teenagers) on the beach from our lanai. It was great to have separate bedrooms and bathrooms. There was a king bed in 1 room and 2 twins in the other so the kids each had their own bed. The kitchen came fully equipped with everything we might need. It was so helpful to have a washer and dryer in the unit! There is underground parking which was very convenient.
They have very nice outdoor grills that we used a couple times during our stay. It was nice to have dinner (and breakfast) out on our lanai - there was a table and 4 chairs as well as a small sofaseat. We had beautiful ocean views from our lanai (also over looked pool).
Overall the building is quiet and well maintained. The daily housekeeping did a great job.
It was so nice to be able to just walk downstairs and out onto the beach. You can walk along the Wailea beach walk for some more beautiful views and to some of the local resorts/restaurants. Polo beach was very nice. When the tide is low there are a bunch of tidal pools that form in the rocky area and you can see all kinds of urchins and small fish.
We did have a couple issues - small roaches in the condo - management came and sprayed right away. Although I find cockroaches disgusting, I realize they are a common issue in tropical areas. And I had read many reviews of the various resorts and every one had at least one recent review that mentioned them. The other issue was that they were doing some serious construction/remodeling in the unit above ours. We were not notified of this when we booked or even at check in. They were only allowed to work during certain hours, but it's not very fun to be awoken by saws and drills and hammering when you are trying to relax on vacation (they were working on the flooring so it sounded like it was going to come through the ceiling at any moment)
Each unit is different and you can see pictures online to help you decide which unit you might prefer (some units are more updated than others) and check to be sure you are aware of any potential construction/remodeling work.
We would definitely stay here again!
