About the property

condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Aloha! We are Julie and Randy and welcome to our home! We want you to enjoy the fantastic ocean views and luxury of our remodeled 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo in Wailea Elua Village - a gated, 24-acre, oceanfront community on beautiful Ulua Beach in Maui.

You should also know that our listing is one of the few truly “by owner” Wailea Elua Village properties on VRBO and HomeAway. Believe it or not 85% of the Elua Village listings on these sites are managed and operated by vacation rental management companies on Maui, where a guest will have no interaction with the actual owner of the condo. In contrast, Julie and I personally handle and manage every single VRBO and HomeAway inquiry and booking for Elua 701. If you call the phone number on this listing or send an email, I guarantee either Julie or I will respond. You will interact directly with us, not a management company. After all, isn’t VRBO supposed to be Vacation Rental “BY OWNER”?

In order to allow us to interact more easily, please click the “Send Email” button BEFORE you click the “Request to Book” button. Clicking “Request to Book” will start a timer imposed by VRBO/HomeAway, that only allows me 24 hours to either “accept” or “decline” your booking request! Often this is not enough time for you to ask questions, me to answer them, you to say “OK, let’s do it”, me to prepare the contract documents and email them to you, you to review, sign, and then email/fax the documents back to me, and for me to process your deposit payment. All this needs to occur within the 24-hour window or the VRBO/HomeAway system forces me to decline your request! By emailing me first, we can interact with each other without the 24-hour clock hanging over our heads. After all, booking a condo should be a relaxed and enjoyable experience, right?

Our home (Elua 701) is perfectly situated in the center of the Wailea Elua Village property. We are only 150 yards from Ulua beach -- just a 90 second walk to the sand and the world famous 2-mile Wailea Beach Walk that connects all the beachfront resorts along the stunning South Maui shoreline. Our condo is centrally located to the upper pool and Jacuzzi area, tennis court and putting green, as well as the newly remodeled and absolutely beautiful lower pool and pavilion area (which is right next to the beach). Additionally, since our condo is in the middle of the village we are far away from all the road noise of Wailea Alanui Drive which runs along the back of the property. Thus, whether you are relaxing inside our home or outside on the large lanai all you can hear is the surf, the birds, and the breeze in the palms.

From the moment you walk in the door of Elua 701, you will feel at home in our remodeled condo. You will see the quality touches from the granite counter tops to the cool tile flooring. The open floor plan of the main living area includes the well-stocked gourmet kitchen, the dining area with a bar and chilled wine locker, the expansive living room with an additional sitting area, and an entertainment center with a 46-inch Sony LCD wide-screen TV and a CD/DVD home theater system -- all with a fantastic ocean view.

The lanai off of the living room is huge, adding 500 square feet of outdoor space to the already spacious 1260 square feet interior area of our condo. This outdoor space is partially covered so there is always sun or shade available. The lanai also provides two lounges, a BBQ grill, and a comfortable outdoor dining area for six people. Additionally, there is an intimate bar-height table for two that is truly a special place for morning coffee and evening drinks at sunset.

The Master Suite features a new extra-large 'California King' bed, high-thread-count sheets and bedding, 26-inch LCD flat-screen television, DVD player, and over-sized spa bath towels. The large, ocean view, second bedroom has new Queen and Twin beds with high-thread-count sheets, 26-inch LCD flat-screen television, DVD player, and over-sized spa bath towels in the adjacent bathroom.

Since this is truly a 'by owner' property, you will receive owner-direct pricing. You will also find our home is lovingly cared for with the greatest attention to detail. Our guests also receive exceptional personal attention throughout the entire inquiry and booking process as well as during their stay in our home, which is something they might not receive from a property that is not directly managed and cared for by the owner. We invite you to read through the Traveler Reviews attached to this listing to see what our guests have to say about the quality of our home and the level of service we provide. We are passionate about Elua 701, not only because it is our second home, but because it is our guest’s home during their vacation on Maui. The quality of your vacation experience in Elua 701 is very important to us, because we know that it is very important to you.

While Julie and I personally handle and manage all details of your booking, we also have the support of a guest services company on Maui that provides the cleaning and maintenance services required to maintain the high standards we insist upon. The support of this company is available to our guests during their stay in Elua 701 should there be a question or issue that Julie and I cannot immediately answer or resolve from our home in California.

We provide the check-in and check-out cleanings, as well as mid-stay cleaning services at 6 to 7-day intervals for longer bookings. Our home does not include daily maid service. Also, please note the Wailea Elua Village Homeowner’s Association requires a minimum stay of 5 nights for all vacation rentals.

- 3 flat screen TVs, 3 DVD players, and entertainment center

About Randy Smith


We were married on the beach in Maui, in a wonderful little ceremony attended by just ourselves and our parents. That was back in 1990 and over the years we have absolutely fallen in love with Maui, especially the south (Kihei/Wailea) side. While we are currently still 'tied to our jobs' on the mainland, our plan is to 'someday' retire to Maui. In the meantime, we would love to share our home with you.

Mahalo and aloha,

Julie and Randy

Randy Smith purchased this condo in 2008

Why Randy Smith chose South Maui

We chose the Wailea Elua Village for many reasons. Elua is a gated, oceanfront complex situated on a gorgeous, white sand beach called Ulua Beach. Additionally, the grounds at Elua are absolutely spectacular with orchids growing on almost every tree. Also, we love SCUBA diving, and Elua Village is less than 1-1/2 miles from the Kihei Boat Ramp where all the dive and snorkle boats depart for Molokini Crater and all the other great South Maui dive sites! Finally... that beach we were married on... was Ulua!!

What makes this condo unique

The location of our unit (#701) in the Elua Village is perfect! It is marked by the green pin on the map to the right. Click on the 'satellite' button and then zoom in to see our exact location in the village. We are centrally located, less than 150 yards from the sand of Ulua Beach, as well as the newly remodeled main pool and pavilion area for the Elua Village complex. We are even closer to the mid-village pool and jacuzzi area (which is hardly ever crowded because everyone goes to the new pool/pavilion that is on the beach!) Our location in the village very quiet because we are far away from the road noise of Wailea Alanui Road at the back of the complex. Finally, we have a wonderful ocean view from our huge lanai (which is over 500 square feet!)

Fantastic Place and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Maui and this condo was perfect for us. We've rented a number of homes for vacations over the years and this was one of the best. We felt like we were staying in someone's primary residence in terms of how nice it was furnished and having everything you could possibly need in a kitchen. The location and grounds at the condo were first rate too. I enjoyed eating breakfast every morning on the patio with the ocean view. We also enjoyed snorkeling off the beach and were impressed with how many fish we saw around the reef there. The rental experience went very smooth including check-in and check-out. This was a great trip. Thanks Randy!

My husband and I with our daughter and son-in-law just spent a glorious vacation in Maui. What made this vacation so wonderful was Wailea Elua #701 owned by Randy and Julie Smith. This condo is immaculate, the kitchen is complete, and the beach gear was well used. The thought that went to providing for their guest comfort is evident throughout this condo. Artwork, Hawaiian quilts, and island touches give an aura of paradise. The grounds are beautiful and just steps away from the beach and path. Wailea Elua is quite and secure, gate staff so friendly, and pool areas are well maintained. Gardner’s are constantly working on the beautiful grounds and willing to share their knowledge. Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your home - we will be back everything was perfect.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were top notch. Check in and access to property was very smooth. Great views from the lanai. Direct beach access with a good swimming pool and pavilion area. You can see whales from the property. The beach is great for all age groups - and is very swim able. The grounds are immaculate. Randy and Julie were very responsive and provided great insights to the island. Elua Village is my favorite vacation spot as it provides so many options for dining, shopping, relaxing, and is a short drive / long walk to Mulligan's to watch my Packers and get breakfast! Many things to do within walking distance. Wailea is always the sunniest part of the island. I would recommend this place to anyone - it is paradise.

We loved Randy and Julie's condo! The location is amazing - close to the beach and pool, and walking distance to a great little shopping centre. The unit is clean and organized and has everything you could possibly need. Randy and Julie are a wealth of information and provided us with lots of helpful suggestions that made our trip even more memorable. Thank you for being such wonderful hosts! We hope to come back again next year. :)

Hidden Gem within Elua!!

  • 5 of 5

We have previously stayed in a few different units in Elua, and this unit is by far one of the most comfortable. It is well stocked and organized, with new appliances and beautiful upgrades and furnishings. The large deck is great for entertaining, and gets morning and afternoon sun, (views of the sunset were fabulous!), with cover for shade if needed. This unit is just a short walk to the beach and beach front walkways to the hotels.

Randy and Julie have given invaluable information on the do's and don'ts, what to see and where to eat on Maui. They responded immediately when booking and kept in touch the whole time if we needed anything.

This unit is definitely well thought out for the total enjoyment of their guests. We can hardly wait to return!

We had the BEST time in Hawaii, our little family of 5. The condo is beautiful! It is a home away from home and Randy and Julie are so wonderful to work with. Elua is a special place and staying in such a beautiful condo made it even better. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will be back soon!
