Just returned from an 8 day stay at this beautiful condo. We had a great view from the large balcony. The kitchen had new appliances ,a granite countertop and all the dishes, cookware, glasses, mugs and bar wear you could possible need. There is a large, spa like master bath along with a new, shower only second bath. There is a new dishwasher and large washer and dryer. It's not like "Woo hoo ....I get to cook and do laundry in Maui" but my point is that you will feel at home in this unit. It will have everything you need.
The owners provide beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, boogie boards, a cooler and ice packs...everything you need to spend the day on the beach. If you prefer a pool, the unit is a minuet walk away.
The complex is very quiet. I enjoyed laying on the lounge chair at night looking at the stars and listening to the tropical night sounds. I woke up early and had coffee on the balcony listening to and watching the many different birds as the sun rose.
With regards to location, it is a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive to Keawakapu Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. From the beach access parking lot you can walk south 2 1/2 miles along the beach and the Wailea beach walk. Or you can walk north along the beach and hiking path all the way to Kamaole Beach Park II. One morning, just north of Five Palms Restaurant we spotted 6 sea turtles eating algae from the rocks a few feet from shore.
The unit is a short drive or a 20 minute evening walk to some of Wailea's best restaurants. The shops at Wailea are a 5 minute drive away.
Since the apartment is rented out by the owner, it's not part of the Outrigger management. However, the unit owners local manager, Carol, is a phone call away. She was a pleasure to deal with and made the rental process went very simple.
There is an on sight concierge, MK, who arranged a snorkeling, zip line and Hana tour for us. Just a bit of advice...you can drive up to Haleakalā fairly easily, but do yourself a favor and let someone else drive the Hana trip.
We were very happy with our stay. The pictures don't lie.
