Home last night from another amazing stay at the Wailea Beach Villas. We first visited this property 5 years ago, and it was just as spectacular the second time around. The villas are gorgeous, comfortable, extremely well appointed, and ideally located on Wailea Beach, right in the heart of the resort area and a quick walk to the Shops at Wailea. With 3 young kids, having the ability to eat and prepare some meals in the villa, have laundry in the unit, and plenty of space to spread out really made the vacation even more enjoyable. Traveling from the east coast, the kids were each up at different times as they got adjusted to the time difference. Being able to prepare breakfast as the kids got up, and sit with coffee on the lanai as the sun came up was so stress-free...I can't imagine how stressful it would have been if we had to get everyone up and out at the same time to wait in line at a resort restaurant for an expensive breakfast. I used the fitness center every day and although small, it was well appointed and quite nice, overlooking the family pool.
Tracy, the resort concierge, was super nice, knowledgeable, and a tremendous help, suggesting interesting activities and dining options, and making the needed reservations for us. A highlight of the trip was the outrigger canoe whale watch that he suggested--we took a canoe right out onto the open ocean as whales blew and breached around us. Amazing! Something that can only be done in Maui.
The family pool near the penthouses was lovely, convenient, and never ever crowded (same for the adult pool on the ocean). What a contrast to the neighboring resorts where people are fighting for chairs! Towels were always available, as was water and sunscreen provided for guests free of charge. Beach toys were available as well. The beach attendants were always quickly available to set up chairs and umbrellas but the ocean, and walked around with water for resort guests--a very nice touch. Additionally, we met many nice people and families during our stay, which made it feel like a little community.
We booked a 10PM flight out and were able to use the beach and pools all day, and shower in the locker room by the fitness center before we left for dinner and our flight. We really felt like we got a "bonus day" as a result, and the resort staff was more than happy to accommodate us, even though we had checked out at 11AM.
We absolutely love this property and are already planning our return trip! Having stayed at many high end resorts, we are extremely picky about our vacation accommodations, but the WBV are at the very top of our list. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Maui.
