Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Aloha! We are Julie and Randy and welcome to our home! We want you to enjoy the fantastic ocean views and luxury of our remodeled 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo in Wailea Elua Village - a gated, 24-acre, oceanfront community on beautiful Ulua Beach in Maui.

Our home (Elua 701) is perfectly situated in the center of the Wailea Elua Village property. We are only 150 yards from Ulua beach -- just a 90 second walk to the sand and the world famous 2-mile Wailea Beach Walk that connects all the beachfront resorts along the stunning South Maui shoreline. Our condo is centrally located to the upper pool and Jacuzzi area, tennis court and putting green, as well as the newly remodeled and absolutely beautiful lower pool and pavilion area (which is right next to the beach). Additionally, since our condo is in the middle of the village we are far away from all the road noise of Wailea Alanui Drive which runs along the back of the property. Thus, whether you are relaxing inside our home or outside on the large lanai all you can hear is the surf, the birds, and the breeze in the palms.

From the moment you walk in the door of Elua 701, you will feel at home in our remodeled condo. You will see the quality touches from the granite counter tops to the cool tile flooring. The open floor plan of the main living area includes the well-stocked gourmet kitchen, the dining area with a bar and chilled wine locker, the expansive living room with an additional sitting area, and an entertainment center with a 46-inch Sony LCD wide-screen TV and a CD/DVD home theater system -- all with a fantastic ocean view.

The lanai off of the living room is huge, adding 500 square feet of outdoor space to the already spacious 1260 square feet interior area of our condo. This outdoor space is partially covered so there is always sun or shade available. The lanai also provides two lounges, a BBQ grill, and a comfortable outdoor dining area for six people. Additionally, there is an intimate bar-height table for two that is truly a special place for morning coffee and evening drinks at sunset.

The Master Suite features a new extra-large 'California King' bed, high-thread-count sheets and bedding, 26-inch LCD flat-screen television, DVD player, and over-sized spa bath towels. The large, ocean view, second bedroom has new Queen and Twin beds with high-thread-count sheets, 26-inch LCD flat-screen television, DVD player, and over-sized spa bath towels in the adjacent bathroom.

You should also know that our listing is one of the few truly “by owner” Wailea Elua Village properties on VRBO and HomeAway. Believe it or not 80% of the Elua Village listings on these sites are managed and operated by vacation rental management companies on Maui, where a guest will have no interaction with the actual owner of the condo. In contrast, Julie and I personally handle and manage every single VRBO and HomeAway inquiry and booking for Elua 701. If you call the phone number on this listing or send an email, I guarantee either Julie or I will respond. You will interact directly with us, not a management company. After all, isn’t VRBO supposed to be Vacation Rental “BY OWNER”?

Since this is truly a 'by owner' property, you will receive owner-direct pricing. You will also find our home is lovingly cared for with the greatest attention to detail. Our guests also receive exceptional personal attention throughout the entire inquiry and booking process as well as during their stay in our home, which is something they might not receive from a property that is not directly managed and cared for by the owner. We invite you to read through the Traveler Reviews attached to this listing to see what our guests have to say about the quality of our home and the level of service we provide. We are passionate about Elua 701, not only because it is our second home, but because it is our guest’s home during their vacation on Maui. The quality of your vacation experience in Elua 701 is very important to us, because we know that it is very important to you.

While Julie and I personally handle and manage all details of your booking, we also have the support of a guest services company on Maui that provides the cleaning and maintenance services required to maintain the high standards we insist upon. The support of this company is available to our guests during their stay in Elua 701 should there be a question or issue that Julie and I cannot immediately answer or resolve from our home in California.

We provide the check-in and check-out cleanings, as well as mid-stay cleaning services at 6 to 7-day intervals for longer bookings. Our home does not include daily maid service. However, if this is something you are interested in, daily maid service can be provided at an additional charge. Just ask us. Also, please note the Wailea Elua Village Homeowner’s Association requires a minimum stay of 5 nights for all vacation rentals.

Our home has all the usual amenities that you would expect... and more!

- 3 flat screen TVs, 3 DVD players, and entertainment center

- Free secure, wireless high-speed internet (Bring your laptop or iPad!)

- Central air conditioning

- Ceiling fans throughout

About Randy Smith

Aloha!

We were married on the beach in Maui, in a wonderful little ceremony attended by just ourselves and our parents. That was back in 1990 and over the years we have absolutely fallen in love with Maui, especially the south (Kihei/Wailea) side. While we are currently still 'tied to our jobs' on the mainland, our plan is to 'someday' retire to Maui. In the meantime, we would love to share our home with you.

Mahalo and aloha,

Julie and Randy

Randy Smith purchased this condo in 2008

Why Randy Smith chose Maui

We chose the Wailea Elua Village for many reasons. Elua is a gated, oceanfront complex situated on a gorgeous, white sand beach called Ulua Beach. Additionally, the grounds at Elua are absolutely spectacular with orchids growing on almost every tree. Also, we love SCUBA diving, and Elua Village is less than 1-1/2 miles from the Kihei Boat Ramp where all the dive and snorkle boats depart for Molokini Crater and all the other great South Maui dive sites! Finally... that beach we were married on... was Ulua!!

What makes this condo unique

The location of our unit (#701) in the Elua Village is perfect! It is marked by the green pin on the map to the right. Click on the 'satellite' button and then zoom in to see our exact location in the village. We are centrally located, less than 150 yards from the sand of Ulua Beach, as well as the newly remodeled main pool and pavilion area for the Elua Village complex. We are even closer to the mid-village pool and jacuzzi area (which is hardly ever crowded because everyone goes to the new pool/pavilion that is on the beach!) Our location in the village very quiet because we are far away from the road noise of Wailea Alanui Road at the back of the complex. Finally, we have a wonderful ocean view from our huge lanai (which is over 500 square feet!)

Great home in perfect development

  • 5 of 5

Clean and modern home with personable owners in the perfect Maui location. What's not to like? The house has everything you'll need for a couple or a family. The Elua Viillage complex is maintained like a Country Club but without any pretensions. The location right on Ulua beach couldn't be better. Really the Hawaii condo experience the way it should be. The rates are very fair for this expensive stretch of Wailea one of the finest stretches of coast in Hawaii if not the world.

A beautiful condo with a gorgeous ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying Maui is one of my very favorite Hawaiian island and this visit confirmed that sentiment even further. We stayed in this lovely condo (#701) . We stayed in this lovely condo (#701) at Wailea Elua Villege from Sunday May 15- Saturday May 21. I have my kids with me 2 sons( 27 and 23) and one daughter(18). The entire family had such a great time. The condo is well located in Wailea and so close to the lovely sandy beach( 2 minutes’ walk max). It is well equipped with everything a modern family will need or come to expect. The rooms are well-furnished and with a TV practically in every room. It has a very handy washer and dryer! The kitchen has all the amenities for those who love to cook. also, we had such a gorgeous ocean view from the living room as well as from the roomy balcony. Snorkeling was spectacular at the beach in front of the condo and other beaches around the island.

Randy and his wife Julie ( the owners) have gone out of their way to be accommodating and have been very helpful before, during and after our stay. We would love to come back soon and stay in this condo. We will give it a superb endorsement and we'll recommend it very highly. Thanks.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 7 month old in April/May. We were more than happy with the condo. It has everything you need....well stocked kitchen tools, beach towels, bbq, wifi, etc. It is also very well organized and clean. The proximity to the beach is great..about a minute walk to both beach and pool! The lanai is large and has both sun and shade during the day, so there is always a great spot to chill. It's also just a short walk to shops and coffee...

Some highlights and tips...

- the beach walk is very close to condo and will take you past all the resorts. Did this most mornings with baby.

- the Grand Wailea spa is world class...I highly recommend this.

- Maui baby rentals was wonderful...no need to bring pack n' play or high chairs, etc, ...they can drop off and pick up.

- Ulua beach is fabulous! I suggest renting a beach umbrella if you love shade or have a little one. There is not a lot of shade on the beach.

- Randy and Julie are very responsive and easy to deal with.

Overall this place is wonderful! It's always a bit risky to book online...you never know if the advertising properly represents the place...in this case the pictures don't do it justice! You won't be disappointed.

Hated to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Randy & Julie's condo and would definitely go back. There were 5 in our party (2 couples and one pre-teen), and all were very comfortable. Our bed was firm (I need FIRM), but somehow also managed to be soft and drew no complaints from my husband who prefers to sleep on a marshmallow. There were enough well-placed louvered windows to capture the breeze that we rarely turned on the A/C. This unit just has a garage beneath it so it's one less adjacent unit to have to worry about with noise (there is another unit above). A couple of things we really appreciated: ample seating for 6 at both the indoor & outdoor tables, having our own gas BBQ on the deck, both sun and shade on the deck throughout the day, decent kitchen utensils, plenty of beach towels in the unit, very short walk to a fantastic beach (we found no need to go to any others). The complex itself is beautifully maintained, although this is the result of constant work, so be prepared to hear plenty of landscaping equipment buzzing throughout the day (didn't bother us so much because we were at the beach anyway!). The owners do not stock the place with any sporting goods, so if you want to take advantage of the tennis courts, you'll have to find your own rackets. We went to the trouble of packing 4 only to find the courts were being used as a staging are for some construction work. There are some beach chairs and coolers in the unit. The owners are super responsive and very interested in ensuring you are comfortable and happy with your stay. I received an email just before our trip with a list of suggested places and services in the area and another email after we arrived asking if everything was ok. The gate staff at the security entrance were super nice. We have been spoiled now and would definitely look to this unit again when we return to Maui.

The best--year in, year out

  • 5 of 5

We've now stayed at Randy and Julie's condo five times, sometimes with family, and sometimes on our own as a couple. It's got everything we need; it's extremely well maintained; it's stocked with what useful supplies (including beach chairs); and it has convenient access to a great pool right next to the beach. On the few occasions when an issue has arisen, Randy or his management team have resolved it quickly with a phone call or an email. Beyond all of that, we love the serenity, beauty, and convenience of the place. We love getting up early for a walk along the beach . . . and then coffee on the patio with a view down to the ocean. We love being able to walk to great restaurants along the beach. This year we spent three days at the beginning of our trip in Kapalua and then drove down to Wailea for a week at Randy and Julie's place. As we arrived at Elua, it felt very much like we were coming home.

Excellent, as good as it gets for a two bedroom co

  • 5 of 5

This is really a wonderful condo in a wonderful complex/village. When you notice the primary plant for landscaping is the orchid,

you realize you are in a very special place. It is quiet, peaceful, well appointed,comfortable, and for us just heaven on Earth. The owners are very nice people, very easy to work with and responsive by email to any questions we had. Their suggestions for where to go, what to do, and restaurants, are all great, much better than "best of Maui." We will go back here .
