It will be hard to leave
Submitted: July 7, 2012
Stayed: June 2012
We have visited Maui and other islands many times over the past 30 years and stayed at a variety of hotels and condos in Wailea and elsewhere on the island - this is truly one of the nicest developments and an outstanding unit. It is not ocean front so you will not hear the waves but there is a narrow view of Mollokini. Wailea Beach and the ocean front walkway is about a 10 minute walk down steps - my husband had a torn ACL so those with mobility issues will find the walk to and from the beach takes more time.
The unit is very nice with a spacious and well stocked kitchen, living area and master suite (large separate shower/tub, separate dressing room ) large Tvs, fantastic grill on the lanai, full size washer/
dryer in a separate washroom (instead of a bathroom or other area). The second bedroom has a
queen size bed with adjacent bathroom with a combo shower tub good for a teen or other couple. There is Murphy bed in a library area but there is little privacy or soundproofing so not for lite
The locatio is perfect for being able to walk to beautiful beaches, snorkeling sites, other hotels, shops
and restaurants in Wailea. The fitness center was good size and located directly below the unit.
My only complaints: (1) the unit is located right above the family pool and there were a number of
times you could hear the kids yelling and Marco polo playing even with the glass doors shut, (2) the unit has an assigned underground parking space which is the smallest in the development with both
sides being cinder block - a Mini Cooper may fit but still may be tight to get out. There are other "open" parking spaces but during busier months those may be more difficult to obtain.
The owner was very helpful and responsive to any questions and all aspects of the unit were very
nice. The front desk was exceptionally helpful with move in and move out, scheduling tours/activities/reservations and the property and grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. I
would certainly return and have already recommended the unit and location to others.
It truly was hard to leave this beautiful setting!

Owner's Response: Hi Lynn, glad you enjoyed your stay. You must have had an exceptionally noisy group in right after school let out...we're here now (July) and it's quiet with the doors closed, and still pleasant with them open! And the condo is actually about 800 feet to the beach (with three flights of steps) - next time you are here check with the concierge/front desk staff and they will be happy to run you down in the golf cart rather than navigate steps with a bad knee. We walk it in three minutes.
