About Michael or Marlene

Michael and I grew up in Northern Calif. as did our parents. We have been living in Danville Cal for over 35 years and love it here, but we missed the ocean and the water sports that go along with it.

Michael or Marlene purchased this condo in 1999

Why Michael or Marlene chose Maui

We chose Wailea because we love this side of the island It is dryer in the winter and the beaches are safe and easy to get into. Conde Nast rated Elua beach as the best in Hawaii, and is only a few minutes away. We started coming to Maui about 30 years ago, and soon found that we much preferred the quieter, less touristy area of Wailea, and returned each year for our Hawaiian vacation. We love the slower pace of the area and the natural beauty and beautiful grounds that surround our condo. We have our own little yard and its great to just sit outside and enjoy the ocean, and the garden. The weather is wonderful with less wind and rain than the North shore. We love the pool area which is never crowded.

What makes this condo unique

I love the high ceilings in the living room with the large deck off of the living area and the kitchen. The dinette area is comfortable and the view from the deck just had us fall in love with our home The two story seems to have a lot more privacy and space for everyone. The bedrooms are so nice and large. We even have two queen sized beds in the second bedroom so we have plenty of space for family and friends. We love the grounds and even have our own banana tree in the front. The pool is beautiful and usually has only two three people there.

A Great Value

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. I feel that the owner has responded to past reviews and made an effort to upgrade. There were new towels, it felt clean and freshly painted. The kitchen is well equipped, actually better than other condos where we have stayed. The view from the upper lanai is wonderful and the pools at the complex provided afternoon relaxation. The beds were really comfortable, and we appreciated the larger beds in the guest room. For the price, it was above our expectations. A very good, adequate rental. I have already recommended it to a friend!

Mediocre Accommodations in Excellent Location

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in this condo over the holiday season of 2015. The condo is in a fabulous location with easy access to shops, restaurants, beaches and the Kihei strip . The pool in the development is adequate, and the grounds are exquisite. The family room furniture appears to have been upgraded recently, the bedroom closet space is excellent and the kitchen is well appointed.

That ends the positive about this condo. This condo needs updating, cleaning and repairs. The carpet from the downstairs bedroom area to the upstairs living is filthy and should have been cleaned if not replaced a long time ago. The lanai/patio furniture was so dirty when we arrived that we could not sit on it without getting our clothes dirty(the rental agency did have someone come out to clean it right away though). The upstairs toilet never worked from the day we arrived until the day we left although a plumber was sent twice to fix it. The towels were pathetic with holes, stains, and shredding, and the linens were paper thin. The bathroom tile is so worn it looks dirty. On one day of our stay, I woke up to a cockroach in the master bath and came home to ants in the master bath. An exterminator was available and sent out on the second to last day of our stay.

I would definitely recommend this condo development, but I would not recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Gayle, I am very sorry that you had plumbing issues. That upstairs toilet is the newest one in the condo and is a high efficiency unit was that just replaced in 2011. It must not have been a good season for plumbers. I have taken you other comments as suggestions and reviewed the policies for towel replacement and final inspections with my cleaning company.

Convenient comfortable and private

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous large well appointed condo in a convenient private location. The views are stuning and the gardens enjoyable. We especially enjoyed the pool.

The owner is friendly easy to deal with and responds in a timely fashion.

We would happily revisit.

Decent budget accommodations

  • 3 of 5

This is a budget-friendly condo rental in otherwise expensive Wailea, Maui. Location is great, close to the Wailea shops and less than a mile to nice beaches. I'd rate the physical condition of the condo as fair. It's older and perhaps in need of updating, but it's ok. It needs new linens throughout, towels are old and many have holes and tears. The condo has three window A/C units; the one in the master bedroom works poorly and doesn't keep the room cool. This is probably a non-issue for most of the year, but we were there in the dead of summer and it was HOT! There were also bugs in the condo. We saw a few very large cockroaches, fortunately dead. I know this is part of life in Hawaii, but I didn't expect to see them inside the condo. There was also a constant flow of ants in the master bathroom. The beach equipment that is there also needs to be replaced. The boogie board is so delapidated that it's unusable. Chairs are worn. It was nice to have washer and dryer in the unit. Lots of closet space and drawers for your clothes. The pool was well kept. If we had it to do all over again, we would have spent a little more money for a nicer place. But if you're on a very tight budget, give this condo your consideration.

Perfect Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

My family and I (6 of us including to small children ) stayed at this TWO level condo. It was perfect! We actally traveled to Maui for a reunion so we had lots of family staying at the Ekolu Village. Condo was clean and had pretty much everything we needed. Could have used some dish towels and a bbq but that's minor. The only other issue was that we had no phone to keep in touch with our family and the internet was not always working. We had someone come out but had to go to the rental office to do so. They promptly tried to fix the problem with no luck. None the less we had a fantastic time and the owner was very quick to respond to emails or any concerns you had. Would definitely stay at #1002 again! Mahalo to Michael, and all the staff at AA Oceanfront Rentals. Next time we'll definitely stay longer. One week is too short!

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our two week stay at this property and can highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic place to stay in Maui. We had such a wonderful time here and have memories that will last a lifetime! The townhouse is large and beautifully decorated. The layout was perfect for our family and it was great to have two stories. The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything you would need. There are many thoughtful details that the owners have considered (like providing coolers, beach chairs and much more). The townhouse is in a very private location and surrounded by the beautiful grounds. Best of all are the amazing views!

We have stayed at many condos in Wailea (Grand Champions, the Palms, etc) and this one was by far our favorite. The owners are extremely friendly, reliable, and easy to deal with. We wished we could stay forever and hope to return many times in the future!
