Wailea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Polo Beach: Prime Luxury Oceanfront Penthouse Condo, 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 2 to 4

Why do the majority of this condo's guests keep returning year after year? Why such a loyal following for this penthouse? Answer: It's simply Polo's best in every way..and they, like us, prefer the condo's unequaled location, its finer furnishings, and being less than 40 STEPS to one of Maui's top ten sandy beaches.They love the well kept, beautifully planned, remodeled interiors, tall windows & luxury amenities plus the far reaching ocean views, all of which contribute to why they prefer this penthouse above any others for their island stay. They also appreciate the reasonable oceanfront rates for upscale oceanfront accommodations.

The multi directional views include vast horizon ocean vistas and three other islands! The best of designer furnishings makes it a favorite among Polo Beach Club devotees who want nicer things: Brown Jordan lanai furniture, Sub Zero, Bosch, Tommy Bahama's lavish furniture, hand carved glass panels and more. Everyone appreciates the condo's tropical decor with native Koa woods, imported faux stone tile floors, custom materials, marble accents and extra features such as island art, higher ceilings, electric blinds, new luxury back supporter mattresses, designer china, music & book library, and the top floor's exclusive filigreed accents that increase enjoyment of the lanai during the afternoon's brightest sunlight moments without blocking the views or restricting lanai use.

Location matters for a fully enjoyable vacation, so a few more details: This private condo sits in the resort's best location overlooking the beach below, the fresh water pool, Jacuzzi spa, lush landscaped gardens and SW Maui. Spectacular sunsets are the norm. Located on the bright sunny SW resort side, the penthouse provides convenient enjoyment of Polo's amenities, the free form pool, barbecue, herb garden, warm ocean, and golden beach...This is not a lower floor or back unit nor is it on the darker windy property side...the condo occupies a top floor premiere corner location so less foot traffic and no one looking in your windows. The condo's private location is considered the resort's best spot with endless ocean views that include other islands, Turtle Bay and beyond. The kitchen also features outstanding ocean views as well as viewing miles of uninterrupted island landscape from the windows. Good views from all vantage points! Unlike most units here, even the penthouse's second bedroom has a great overlooks majestic Mt. Haleakala. All this visual wonder while providing important protection from strong trade winds and less noise from the park and hotel side of the resort property.

Yes, you can wave to numerous whales in season, or dolphins and turtles year around. They frolic in the Polo waters. Swim, snorkel or simply wade in Hawaii's blue waters. The ease of direct beach access from the condo means convenient strolls at the water's edge or a quick dip before breakfast or dinner. Star gaze and fall asleep to the sound of waves, awaken to glorious morning skies and ocean waters all visible from the romantic master suites' king bed. (We are pleased that many of our thrilled honeymooners return for anniversary trips).

* You've discovered one of the few limited 'prime luxury oceanfront' condos for rent here. This is Polo's highest oceanfront rental category. Only a handful of Polo Beach units in this top category will rent . Ours is available to responsible non-smoking adults.

*Available as a 2 bedroom or 1 bedroom/2 bath condo, this exceptionally remodeled, fully furnished penthouse gives you two rate options and is priced accordingly. Complimentary Garage parking is also included.

* Because Penthouse 803 is recognized as a unique oceanfront gem it is one of the few condo's listed in BEST PLACES Hawaii...quite an honor!

If you seek spacious tropical beachfront living beyond normal rentals, then you'll appreciate this upscale luxury unit, its fabulous furnishings, serene ambiance, and stunning views. It's ocean views are so outstanding they were featured front page on resort brochures! By the way, our sandy beach is listed as one of Maui's top ten beaches and our small area is renown for the island's finest dry sunny weather!

* The condo's quiet top floor location, with no one above you, provides extra privacy and quiet without compromise to ocean views and island beauty. If you like waking up to ocean sounds. fresh air, and basking in relaxed island living while overlooking sparkling blue waters with a sandy beach and a quiet pool as well as majestic Mount Haleakala and green golf courses in your back yard..or simply napping on the lanai, then, like us, you'll love this condo.

Details matter...Need a few more? Conveniences abound; such as three new large HD TV Blu-ray systems, regular DVD & VCR, CD stereo systems, i-home docks, wireless and high speed computer connections at the granite topped computer station, gourmet lover's carefree kitchen complete with 3 sets of china. (This translates to round the clock oceanfront dining options where soft morning skies and brilliant evening sunsets are the norm--or take advantage of catered meals--or walk next door or to one of the nearby neighboring award winning restaurants).

Many say 803 is 'the best of the best--and by going owner direct you not only get optimum value but you know exactly what you are getting. You are involved with longtime owners who greatly care for this condo, your comfort and your enjoyment of this cherished vacation home. Because its our personal island home, we've filled it with exceptionally lovely things. (That's why its not in the regular rental pool or automatic booking program--its only available owner direct to responsible adults who seek and appreciate especially nice accommodations).

We are pleased that optional car rental discounts from several island companies are also available to guests who stay in this condo. They provide penthouse guests with good discounts and service.

If this sounds like the type of condo you've been searching for, please feel welcome to CALL (or email, if you prefer). The penthouse is the perfect place to experience life on the island's gold coast while greatly enjoying the blended perfection of luxury and relaxation his 'sunsational' condo offers.

No worries about condo credibility and legitimate zoning-- our state approved Hawaii Tax# W30261066-01 and the penthouse photos shown here are of the condo interiors.

About SL Boswell

We are Maui-fans! Selected as the world's number one best island & we agree.Our entire family loves Maui's diversity and eagerly looks forward to the many activities and warmth that it offers from our cold winters...and surprise, we also found Maui's moderate soothing temperatures exist year round. It's an amazing island with an abundant choice of great dining experiences and many unique activities.

We are professional business people who like Maui's healthy lifestyle and its wide range of activities. We discover something new every time we visit.The native beauty, fresh air, azure waters, friendly people, and sunshine impart rejuvenation and aloha into our busy lives. Mt. Haleakala continually captures our interest, whether for star gazing or hiking into the crater. The ocean outside our door teems with colorful sea life. This is our favorite get-away! Pacific Rim dining experiences are numerous. We enjoy sharing this wonderful condo with others, who like us, want to be surrounded by Hawaii's refreshing charm, clear blue water, fine food, many activities, and swaying palms in an unforgettable setting.

SL Boswell purchased this condo in 1994

Why SL Boswell chose Maui

Here, just steps away from one of Maui's top ten beaches, we enjoy the island’s best, dry, sunny weather year round! Sunny Wailea Makena on the gold coast proved irresistible! So did Polo Beach with its serene top floor oceanfront penthouse condo. We chose this over many others for its stunning ocean views, unequaled location, weather, remarkable neighborhood, and a quiet beach outside our door with incredible easy access-- The scenic oceanfront walk and Polo’s ocean side Jacuzzi spa on starrlit nights also pulled heavy on our heartstrings. Leisurely barbecued hamburger,steak, or fish simply taste better on the lanai by the ocean. We wanted "untouristy" Hawaii and this is quiet resort, while close to shopping, dining, and activities, gives us a charming island lifestyle without the crowds.

It's an oceanfront haven of relaxation that reflects and respects Hawaii’s environment--and a great base from which to explore the island. The quiet non-touristy atmosphere hides the fact that there’s so much to do and see. Golf and tennis are up the street—-world class in both directions. Nice shops as well as a wide selection of dining options are within walking distance. Art and music thrive here. Three of our neighbors hold titles in the world’s Top Ten Resorts--their luaus, restaurants, and spas provide unforgettable experiences.

Island magazine named Polo Beach as Maui’s best for watching sunsets and we agree. It’s also excellent for snorkeling and swimming. The beach is gentle, without much slope--a great spot for making sand castles, whale watching, or simply leaving our footprints in the soft sand. Year after year, for our family, the tropical charm remains refreshing and irresistible. We are pleased this penthouse condo is included in Best Places Hawaii!

What makes this condo unique

Wow! where to start? This condo ranks as Polo's premiere unit for many reasons...Overlooking an outstanding sandy beach and no one above us! Stunning top floor ocean views--in every direction! The condo sits on the property's light bright southwest side with less wind and less noise. Maui's best weather! Gentle ocean sounds! Sunny pool side. The penthouse's sheltered lanai gives shade and offers unique full time enjoyment regardless of trade winds-- something many other condos don't have. Serene privacy! We can sleep safe and secure with our windows open.(fewer insects and bugs on the top floor).

Recent remodel and constant upgrades add to the carefree tropical ambiance...Peaceful and spacious! Room to relax without tripping over suitcases or feeling cramped. High ceilings! Breath taking sunsets. Two spa like baths (yes, one complete with soaking TUB). Upscale ambiance...and the constant embrace of carefree relaxation! Island beauty fills each day spent here. Time slows down. Again: Views--every direction. The penthouse is one of the few units here with excellent views from EVERY main room.

Like most people, our spare time is limited so full time enjoyment of Maui’s splendor & island activities matter. We carefully remodeled this top floor condo to take advantage of its premiere beachfront location and views. Designed to maximize the tropical ocean experience, each moment is savored with endless vistas, birds singing, lush garden foliage and quality furnishings. The condo is filled with artwork & furniture that mirror Hawaii. The condo's lanai is a favorite spot, overlooking the pool, beach, other islands, &Turtle Bay. Dawn’s colors and sparkling waters take morning coffee & tea to new heights. Hula moons & starry night skies are spectacular from the romantic master king bed

With the beach, pool and oceanfront walk just steps away, we can easily come and go as often as we please. We couldn’t ask for a more wonderful place in a more perfect spot

A Perfect Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo is one of our favorite places in the world. We have stayed here at least 4 times and always are in awe of the impeccably appointed and well thought out home.The owners are thoughtful and attentive and so easy and pleasant to work with. Everything you need is in the condo including a spectacular view. From the lanai you can see the beach, mountains, palm trees and whales. The location of Polo Beach is excellent. It is close to fine restaurants and activities but very private. 803 is a true paradise.

This is a beautiful home, not a rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 sons stayed in this beautiful condo last week. It is quite a place! Every attention to detail is incredible from the beginning correspondence from the owner until you set foot in this penthouse condo and realize every word and detail are true! Steps to the beach or pool, you will encounter only smiles and a well kept, extremely clean property. Just a walkway away from the Four Seasons, Grand Wailea and other top notch properties you can get to in just minutes. The condo is spacious and comfortable and the upgrades are fabulous. You can really tell the difference between just a rental and a home that is rented privately. You definitely won't be sorry! In fact, you'll be thinking when can we go back - just like my husband and I are trying to figure out!

Wonderful time at Polo Beach Club!

  • 5 of 5

We joined our best friends from TX and stayed a week in Condo 803. It is a wonderful penthouse condo with a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. The newly renovated condo is very well furnished and has top name appliances and granite in the kitchen. We loved it and all it had to offer. We spent hours on the lanai having breakfast, lunch or dinner, enjoying the views and protection from the trade winds, and just relaxing. The condo is jut steps from beautiful Polo Beach and we enjoyed the pool too. The condo location is excellent and we enjoyed daily walks along the beach walkway. You can walk to the Fairmont, Four Seasons and Grand Wailea which offer many options for delicious lunches or dinners. We had a fantastic week with our friends and would highly recommend this beautiful condo.

Beautiful condo in a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Polo Beach Club #803 for a week with dear friends. We found it so convenient to everything that was available in Wailea and yet was at the quiet end of the beach walk. The beach was really beautiful. We did not cook much but everything was there had we decided to do so. The people in the office were grand. Would definitely consider renting here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed the condo and its great quiet location! Isn't being right on a beautiful beach wonderful..So enjoyable to walk only a few steps to soft sand! We love the numerous choices of nearby dining options, although we enjoy the oceanfront lanai for morning coffee with island fruit and sunset dinners off the grill. Glad you think you would like to come back...we will have the welcome mat out for you. Everyone thought you were such nice guests--me too! Mahalo, Sandra

We just returned from a week at Polo 803 and it truly is a lovely vacation home. The condo is immaculate, well furnished, comfortable and the Wailea location can't be beat. Nice pool, well maintained beach and grounds, and quiet. We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay and do not hesitate to recommend.
