My wife and I recently returned from a 5 night stay at the Wailea Beach Villas (WBV). Our travel party included a mother in law and three children ages 1,3, and 12. We booked through the property itself as opposed to the online brokers for two reasons. 1. Daily maid service, and 2. Many of their garden view class rooms are in the penthouse building on the 2nd floor, and actually offer a nice ocean view.
Their website has pictures of all the interiors (and their lanai views) for the units they manage. We chose 210 since it had twin beds in the second bedroom, and a den that could be closed off at night for our 12 year old.
This property is a superior alternative to a hotel stay, and actually is less expensive than renting the necessary 2 rooms at a similarly appointed property. Prior to finding WBV, we have avoided a condo stay on Maui due to the lack of amenities and presence of only a motel style pool.
This is a spectacular property. The Landscaping is unreal, and the services rival many hotels on the island. The units are large enough that even our party of 6 never felt like we were bumping into each other. The furnishings were comfortable, and luckily the owners of our unit spared no expense in outfitting the gourmet kitchen.
The shops at Wailea are directly across from the WBV and there is a secure gate to access them. Essentially, this becomes the ‘onsite ‘ food source and mini mart that are found in a comparable hotel. To go orders are easily managed and Longhi’s delivers to your suite if required.
Great beach for small children
Beach valet to set up chairs
High end accommodations (based on our unit)
No overcrowded pool area.
The hike from the beach to the penthouse building can be tiresome. It is a long uphill walk so take everything you need to the beach. Note: There are occasions when the staff is close by with a golf cart and offers rides.
Constantly reaching into pocket to use key card (security has its price)
No food/beverage service at the pools.
No resort style pool with slides, etc.
If you can do without the “scene” at a large hotel property, this is an outstanding place for a Hawaiian getaway.
