This was an interesting experience due to the construction project on the next property. We stayed here 2 years ago in #1510; a bit dated, but very comfortable, and we loved the location of that unit and the Elua property. This time we were farther up the hill in #307, which is a beautiful unit with a gorgeous, large lanai. Unfortunately, you could not consistently enjoy the lanai because the construction noise next door would drive you back inside or away from the area entirely. There was blasting one day, water off another day, and jack hammers too many days. We liked the unit, and being up on the hill was not the problem we thought it might be: gave us exercise going back and forth to the beach/pool; the street noise was somewhat noticeable when outside, but barely so when inside. Being ground floor, people were occasionally on the path close to the windows, and they only have very sheer coverings for some reason (no sleeping late and minimal privacy). They have an outdoor sunshade that can be partially lowered over the main living area window, but it was still quite bright, and not pleasant if anyone has to sleep on the sofa bed (the bed itself was comfortable). Why not just put up some real window coverings, which would also help with cooling costs?
We were lucky that no one was in the unit above us, so no noise there. However, the neighboring construction project is just not something you want to deal with on your expensive and hopefully restful, relaxing vacation. We love Elua Village: the grounds are exquisite and meticulously cared for...the beach area is lovely and has nice snorkeling at either end, it's right on the Wailea path convenient to the shopping village, restaurants, hotels, and you can catch parts of the luau shows in the evening from the path. BUT, is the high density, massive project next door going to destroy the tranquility of low density Elua Village and charming Ulua Beach? We hope not, but fear it might, which is a shame, because it was our favorite place to stay on Maui. We will be checking the reviews carefully before staying here again. If you are looking to stay at Elua Village, this is a nice unit, but closer to the construction side of the property. Be sure to ask the wonderful Ali'i staff about the construction before you reserve; maybe the heavy outside work will be done. If not, try for a unit on the other side of the property until things settle down. PS: the Ali'i staff is just fabulous and very responsive to all of your concerns and needs!
