We stayed in the #801 condo in April 2016. In general, the Wailea Elua Village is a unique site. It is extremely well maintained, the surrounding park is beautiful, we had the impression to stay in a botanical garden. And it is located directly at one of the most exclusive beaches of Maui. So we enjoyed to go swimming in the Pacific and then went back a few steps to the private greens of Wailea Elua with sun loungers and parasols under palm trees. It also has a very nice pool, our son spent days there, as the waves sometimes were to scary for him.
The condos are all owned by individuals, mostly retirees from the North American mainland. As a tourist, you rent a condo from these individuals, who use local agencies for the rental management.
The condo itself was also excellent, very spacious, with two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, we had a great ocean view from the terrace. What really impressed us was the fact that the condo had a perfect system of natural air conditioning - there are ventilation windows everywhere, and it allows the cooler air from the gardens to stream, so we did not had to use the electric AC. In total (although not being brand new), the condo was in a perfect shape, everything worked, there was nothing to complain about.
We had booked our condo through Ali'i Resorts, they also provided the daily service. We had a towel exchange and garbage pickup service every day, and a complete cleaning and bedsheets exchange every 3rd day. The service was excellent - very friendly and dedicated to provide a great customer experience. When the gas container of the outdoor barbecue went empty, it was replaced immediately. They are always available and we had the feeling that they cared about us - although they obviously have a large number of condos to manage. Really great service!
So, for us (family with a kid) it was a wonderful experience to stay in the Wailea Elua Village! However, our feeling is that this location might not be suitable for all type of tourists. This is due to the fact that the owners of the village are not hotel hosts - they actually live there. And the owners have set very strict rules for the complete village. So in general, it is very quite there - which we enjoyed very much, but it can create problems with tourists who might plan to have barbecue parties on their terraces, especially when staying as a larger group.
Excellent condo, Excellent resort
This was a fantastic stay. The accommodation was booked through mauivacationadvisors.com. The agency represents many properties. They were a huge help, offering suggestions regarding location, activities, and restaurants. They showed care from beginning, during and following our stay.
This condo resort was great (Elua Village), quiet, on a calm, snorkel beach, walking distance to shops and restaurants, and all the comforts of home with housekeeping. The property was immaculate, tennis, pools and yard was well tended to. the property managers were responsive and accommodating with anything we asked. Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay immensely
beautiful grounds, amenities,condos, and service
We have stayed at the Wailea Elua for the past three years. We first rented a one-bedroom for two weeks,then a two-bedroom/two bath for three weeks for the next two years. The units were nicely decorated and had ocean views. Daily maid service was great. The grounds are beautiful and the location of the complex on the beach can't be beaten. You can spend time one the beach or by one of the two pools. The larger pool overlooks the ocean/beach and is very relaxing, with all the lounge chairs and umbrellas. An ali'i Resort representative meet us on arrival and helped us settle in. Can't say enough good things about this place or the mangagement.
Great week relaxing in comfort and watching the sunset over the
This is the second time we have relied on ali'i Resorts to find us the perfect rental for our annual Thanksgiving trip to Maui. Ali'i staff helped me pick this Unit, communicated with me throughout the months, greeted us warmly and the Unit was spotless and comfortable. We were easy walking distance to the beach and the putting green and tennis courts were across from our Unit. The kitchen and bathrooms had been updated and the beds and living room furniture were very comfortable. The lanai was generous and afforded a great view of the sunset. We will definitely be back next year.
This is the third time we stayed at Wailea Elua #801. It is like living in your own botanical garden. The views are awesome. The snorkeling is great. The property and condo are well-maintained. If you never wanted to drive you wouldn't have to as hotel restaurants and the mall are within walking distance. I like everything about this area. Ali'i Resorts is great to work with!
Everything about our stay here was wonderful. The property was very clean and certainly spacious. Very well stocked with all the essentials needed for our stay. The view was spectacular - sitting out on the lanai in the am having coffee or watching the sunset was wonderful. Having your own grill is certainly a plus here as most places have one for the buildings to share. I would certainly recommend this unit without hesitation.
The stretch of beach it is on is very nice as well. Not a huge beach but very nice. Good section for snorkeling.
The pool area was also very nice - was never crowded.
We had been to Maui one other time and stayed in the Kaanapali area. Wailea doesn't have a town in the same sense as Lahaina but that was OK. Lots of smaller "strip" mall type settings for restaurants and shopping. But, we found plenty of great restaurants while we were there (enjoyed Coconuts fish tacos in particular! Also a great meal at Cafe O'Lei).
The Wailea area is the best spot to be in Maui during December. We had fantastic weather, especially since our other option was staying in Kaanapali, where the weather wasn't as nice in late December.
One after another beautiful day in paradise ...
Loved being greeted by Pat upon our arrival. She's awesome. We also really appreciated having daily maid service (especially since we had three kids with us). The last time we visited Maui we stayed at Wailea Ekahi and we didn't have maid service at all.
The condo/unit was very nice and very comfortable. Plenty of room for the six of us. The only warning I'll give is that they advertised that the sofa in the living room was a sofa bed but it's not. Also, there are no window coverings on one of the windows in the living/dining area, which we found to be a little strange.
We loved the location and really appreciated the fact that we had a very short walk to the beach every day. Very nice not to have to get into the car and drive to the beach. Also, the kids loved the "big pool". The "little pool" was too small and too warm for them. The spa at the "little pool" was out of order the entire time we were there but that didn't bother me because kids aren't supposed to use the spa at all.
I liked the fact that it's a gated community and the security staff was amazing. They always seemed to be around checking things out to make sure nothing was amiss. We had a great experience and wouldn't hesitate for a moment recommending this location/unit to our friends.
Thanks, Alii Resorts!!!
Wailea Elua--the best on Maui
Wailea Elua #801 condo was spacious, well-maintained, with modern furniture and well-equiped kitchen. The location was the incredible. Ocean views from condo, walk to the beach, 2 pools, one with pavilion overlooking the Pacific ocean!! The grounds were maticulously maintained by expert gardeners. Beautiful. We are not rich folks...Wailea Elua #801 was affordable considering the location, accomodations, and service...every convenience and more than 5-star resorts next door to us. The resort is gated with 24 hr. security--private. The only drawback were the mattresses in both bedrooms--they were uncomfortable, not pillowtop.
We will recommend this resort to others without hesitation. Management & staff exceeded our expectations--professional with a focus on excellent customer service. Daily housekeeping, which was included in the cost of rental added to the value of our vacation experience. We rented the condo for 15 days, housekeeping was essential and very much appreciated.
Wailea is the best location on Maui. Wailea Elua, although it is not a new resort, is 5-star. We have stayed at other high-end resorts in Lahaina and on the north shore. September is off-season thus more affordable. The weather was perfect with a day or two of overcast in morning with light rain showers. Absolutely beautiful.
We don't travel to Hawaii all that often with busy work schedules at home. So, we demand the best for our money. We were not disappointed.
We stayed about a block from the beach, a short comfortable 5 minute walk. The grounds were immaculate. The condo was cleaned daily, over and above what we expected. The area as a whole was very quiet, the pool area is well maintained and out of sight except to guests.
Some guests are permanent residents, all very friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or to recommend it to families. Nightlife for the younger set is a short 15-20 minute walk on the beachwalk.
perfect location, perfect vacation
Excellent location, expensive but definitely worth it. Would rather stay here than in the Four Seasons down the beach.
Wailea elua villages is a tropical beauty with lots of amenities
Our stay in 801 was a wonderful experience. We traveled there with 3 other couples renting a total of 3 condos. We enjoyed our trip very much.
We had a fantastic time. We are returning in2011
We loved 801 and are returning for the 3rd time to that condo. The service from ali'i is excellent, if we needed anything ,it was done promptly without question. The location of the condo 801 is right in the middle of all the amenties, pool,beach and paddle tennis court, fitness center. One couldn't ask for a better spot. We have been coming to EluaVillage for more than 10 years and we wouldn't go anywhere else. We love it there.
