About the property

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 "sunsational" penthouse? Answer: It's simply Polo's best in every way; and they, like us, prefer having the resort's perfect private location, the condo's far reaching ocean views, finer furnishings, new remodel, and being just a few easy steps to one of Maui's top ten sandy beaches.

They appreciate the condo's quality design that provides beautifully remodeled tropical interiors, luxury amenities, distinct architectural features, and the top floor’s taller windows & lanai with huge ocean views plus the competitive "prime luxury oceanfront" owner direct rates without additional fees added by rental companies.

The multi directional views include vast ocean horizon vistas, Turtle Bay, and three other islands! 803’s ocean views are so outstanding they were featured front page on resort brochures! Unlike most units here, even the penthouse's second bedroom has a great overlooks majestic Mt. Haleakala. All this visual wonder from the penthouse while its unequaled location provides important protection from strong trade winds plus less noise from the park and hotel side of the resort property.

Location makes a difference:. This private oceanfront condo has the resort's best location for privacy, views, easy access, & sunshine. 803 overlooks the beach below, the fresh water pool, Jacuzzi spa, lush landscaped gardens, ocean, and SW Maui. The barbecue & fresh herb garden are on 803’s side. Spectacular sunsets are the norm....This is not a lower floor or back unit nor on the darker windy property side...the condo occupies a top floor premiere corner location for expansive views, less foot traffic with no one walking by your windows. (Also fewer insects on the top floor). The condo's private quiet location is considered unrivaled as Polo's best spot.

You can wave to numerous whales in season, or dolphins and turtles year around. They frequently frolic in the Polo waters in front of 803's living room and lanai. 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 happy honeymooners return for anniversary trips).

* Quality comfort with designer furnishings that makes the penthouse a favorite among Polo Beach Club devotees who enjoy nicer things: Brown Jordan lanai furniture, Sub Zero, Bosch, Tommy Bahama's lavish furniture, hand carved glass panels and more. The condo's tropical decor has native Koa woods, imported faux stone tile floors, marble accents and extra features such as island art, higher ceilings, electric blinds, new luxury back supporter mattresses, designer china provide beauty, relaxation and comfort. Music & book library, too. The top floor's exclusive filigreed overhangs increase enjoyment of the lanai during the afternoon's brightest sunlight moments without blocking the views or restricting lanai use.

*The easy care gourmet lover's kitchen also provides outstanding ocean views as well as viewing miles of uninterrupted island landscape from its windows. Good views from all vantage points! The fully equipped kitchen’s comes with 3 sets of china & stemware plus some staples to get you started. (This translates to relaxed round the clock oceanfront dining options where soft morning skies and brilliant evening sunsets are the norm--or take advantage of delivered or catered meals--or stroll next door to one of the nearby neighboring award winning restaurants). An added option is your refrigerator stocked on arrival.

* Three Large screen HDTV systems, sound system, cable, wi-fi,high speed computer connections at the granite topped computer station,& even i-pod docks and more.

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

* We love this condo and its upscale contents so its not in the regular rental pool or automatic booking program but is available to non-smoking adults, owner direct as a 2 bedroom or 1 bedroom/2 bath condo...You've discovered one of Polo’s few 'prime luxury oceanfront' condos for rent here. Only a handful of Polo ‘s units in this top category will rent. We share 803 with responsible non-smoking adults who seek and appreciate quality accommodations

* Complimentary covered garage parking is also included.

If this sounds like the type of well maintained & cherished 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 found in this 'sunsational' condo.

No worries about illegal zoning with arrival problems or shutdowns-The penthouse's Hawaii approved Tax# is W 001-626-3168-011.

We are pleased that optional car rental discounts from several island companies are also available to guests who stay in this condo as well as trip insurance.

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

Our Polo Beach winter vacation was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was great because of many reasons. This beautiful condo located beachfront on Polo Beach was a big part of our exciting and fun vacation. This condo is beautifully furnished, and extremely well kept and clean. The views from this unit are fantastic! We had our morning coffee on the Lanai, and every morning without fail, we would see passing whales break surface and provide a wonderful show. We also rented Kayaks and were able to store them for the week in the racks located in the parking garage. That was a huge bonus! The owner is wonderfully helpful and available when you need her help or advice. Thank you for helping our stay become one of, if not the best vacation we have had on Maui.

Owner's Response: Aloha...I'm glad to hear from you and that you had a such a awesome & relaxing stay in the penthouse. It's a gem! Thank you for taking time from your busy life to share your experience and good comments. You were delightful guests! I always enjoy hearing how much guests enjoy the condo...Not all condos sit so close to the ocean and beach or have taller windows like this penthouse, so it always exceeds the first time guest's expectations when they walk in, and are greeted by expansive ocean views with the whales swimming by right in front of them. I love the "wow" responses. The whales usually arrive November for the winter to birth their babies. We affectionately call new born whales " Polo babies"... Seeing one is a special thrill..I'm so happy for you! (The year around turtles and dolphins that swim by are amazing and fun to see, too). Thank you for being such wonderful guests and for taking such loving care of our cherished island home. You were a pleasure and I'm glad I had dates that worked for you....Yes, come back soon...803's welcome mat will be out for you- Mahalo! Sandra

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!

(PS I checked out your are talented!) Again, thank you for taking time to share your comments. Mahalo, Sandra

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.

Owner's Response: Good to hear from you! What an ideal place for your special get-together. Sounds like you had a great time. The condo is so ideal for four people with its private bedrooms and space. Thank you for your nice comments. We, like you, love the condos tropical decor, its quiet lanai, its amazing location, its fabulous views, the wonderful neighbors, and the oceanfront path. Come see us again when Maui tugs at your heartstrings. We enjoyed sharing the condo with you. Mahalo, Sandra

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
