Great condo! It was only a few minutes from shops and the beach. Nice and quiet. I'd recommend staying here.
We have had the good fortune to travel directly to Maui four times. (Mahalo Alaska Airlines!!!) As far as accommodations go, "four" was the magic number. Originally, we had stayed in a few of the beachside hotel resorts in Wailea which were very nice. However, you never quite feel at home at the resorts, always the uber tourist. And the resort rooms offered often do not deliver in terms of value. Not the case with this trip. Our stay at Kim's condominium struck the proper balance. The beautiful beaches near the aforementioned resorts are literally a 5 to 10 minute walk away. The condo is exactly as advertised: spacious and comfortable, a perfect size for two (possibly three) persons. The full kitchen is well-equipped for meal preparation. The patio is relaxing. The living room couches are comfy. Conveniently, there's a washer and dryer for use. There are two clean bathrooms with separate showers. Additionally, Kim is a gracious host who respects privacy. She kindly checked in on us via airbnb messaging to make sure everything was going well and our answer to her was a resounding YES. My wife and I experienced true island living at it's best. We would unequivocally book with Kim in the future. Aloha and Mahalo...Webb and Dina
The condo was gorgeous! It was great having the beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and so much more available to us while on vacation. Kim checked in on us to see that everything was going well and that we had everything we needed. Overall a great experience!
Great place in Wailea. Lovely apartment which has everything you need and even more. Lots of stuff available for the beach snorkel, beach chairs, towels etc. Really handy having a laundry an kitchen for our stay. Kim was super easy to deal with, had no problem finding he place and great instructions for everything. Best place in Wailea. Thanks Kim
As far as the listing is concerned, what you see is exactly what you get: this is by far and away the best value for its location in the Wailea area, and is a stellar spot to set up camp for a few days, a week, or a month.
The apartment itself is spacious, low-key in its decor (My wife and I noted that it had quite a resemblance to our grandparents' own beachfront properties in Pismo and Long Beach Island, respectively: "seaside austere" might be a good term for it). The balcony doesn't provide much of a view, but is enclosed with lovely foliage, and makes for a gorgeous backdrop for an outside breakfast before the heat and humidity pick up. The air conditioning does its job admirably, and the amenities are all there: comfy bed, extra everything, a full kitchen and every appliance in good working order.
The area itself is central, though--as other posters have noted--you're a bit off the main drag, and reaching Wailea and the beach requires a poke down the hill and across the golf course in order to get to food and shopping. This isn't really a problem logistically, though we did have at least one weird conversation with the security guard on the club grounds: he stopped us for walking down the path which runs alongside the street, warned us to stay off of the green, and shrugged when we asked him if there was another way to get from the Grand Champion complex to the Marriott property. Naturally, this has nothing to do with the quality of the apartment itself, but it is worth noting for anybody who's making that particular trek, either coming or going.
All-in-all, however, this was an absolutely golden experience. Great space, great location, great time, and a five-star recommendation for anybody looking for an affordable high-end stay in an chic area of the island.
(PS: Be sure to look in the closets and under the counters in the bathrooms! There's an absolutely fantastic collection of what I assume are "leftovers" from previous guests, ranging from scuba gear and a cooler to sunblocks in every SPF from 15 to 50. I wish we'd thought to check it out prior to stocking up on our own "beach kits" down at the Whaler Retail shop!)
This was our 4th visit to Hawaii and our first time making reservations through airbnb. The booking process went smoothly however, 48 hours before our flight realized we never received the email with directions and key code entry info. We emailed Kim and she promptly responded and had the information to us within 24 hours. So overall, the customer service was great!
The condo was nicely decorated, roomy and very cozy! We appreciated all the extras Kim provided beach chairs, umbrella, towels, boogie board, water shoes, snorkel gear and more. The convenience of having these items available for our use was great! We did end up renting custom snorkel gear at Boss Frog and we got the “best gear available and that was well worth it!! We loved waking up to all the bird sounds and sitting on the Lanai eating our breakfast. Also, the fruit and goody basket was a great surprise, a thoughtful touch and very much appreciated!!
