We stayed at the Elua Village in Wailea March of 2012. We're just booking, for March 2013, so I reminded me that I hadn't written a review for this property! It was our 9th trip to Maui, but our 1st stay at the Elua.
Excellent, I repeat EXCELLENT location! Walk through the property, to the beach, about 5 mins from any point.
Beautiful grounds! Each cluster of condos are really quite far apart, giving a very spacious feeling. Also, the mature plumeria trees, bird's of paradise, etc are breath-taking! The grounds are meticulously maintained. Just beautiful!
Ulua Beach- IS THE BEST! one of the most calm sections of water, with great snorkeling, but the waves can pick up nicely in the afternoons, so great boogie boarding, or just playilng in the waves! I'm not super brave in the water, and this is my favourite beach for playing! There are other beaches, that should really be seen on the island, but this one is super family friendly and has everything to offer! Also… a public bathroom (not a port a potty!), is just genius!
The long beach front path that takes you everywhere in Wailea, starts right out in front of this complex! So if you want to walk/jog for exercise, or zip down to starbucks without the car, or just take a stroll right at the ocean's edge, this is simply great!
You can also walk over to the Shops at Wailea (mall) in about 10 mins. This is super handy, not to have to get in the car, everytime you want to go somewhere.
THE SUNSETS. Oh my gosh. From our lanai, we had an unobstructed view of the sunset! We were in UNIT 2009, which I highly recommend! The renovation is lovely, the decor is very nice, and the patio furniture is way above average!
THE NOT SO GOOD
Unit 2009 is near the back of the complex, so a bit of a walk to the beach, compared to the units down front. (but with the layout of the buildings, still a beautiful view!)
A little noisy. This being said, MOST of the condo buildings that we've stayed at in Maui, are a little noisy! There's many louvered windows, that let noise in. The birds start singing VERY early! Also, the building is not new, and sound-proofing was not that great back when these were built. We had people above us, that let their little one's thunder around starting about 5:30 am every morning. We should have talked to them about it, or called the management company, but well… we were in Maui, so it's hard to be too grouchy!
AND, to repeat myself, we haven't found one single condo unit that doesn't have noise issues. Maybe some of the very new ones are much better? But I would hope so, based on the prices of the new complexes!
And well, really… that's about it for negatives comments!
I wish we could have rented this unit again for 2013, but we need a 3 bedroom this time.
The Elua Village has just an amazing location! Close to everything!
