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 over 400 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.

Please note the Wailea Elua Village Homeowner’s Association requires a minimum stay of 5 nights for all vacation rentals. We do not offer daily maid service. All bookings are subject to a check-out cleaning fee of $203.14. For stays of 14 nights or more, mid-stay cleanings will be conducted on a nominal 7-day interval. The cost of a mid-stay cleaning service is $130.22. All bookings are also subject to the Wailea Elua HOA guest check-in fee of $104.17.

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

- Free secure, wireless high-speed internet (Bring your laptop or iPad!)

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!)

Wonderful accommodations in a beautiful location!!

  • 5 of 5

We look forward to returning to this condominium because we didn't want to ever leave! You can tell the owners take great pride in their unit at Wailea Elua. The accommodations were perfect for our family; comfortable beds, plenty of quality towels, air conditioning, wifi, and a gas BBQ on a spacious lanai. It is a clean, artfully decorated vacation home situated in a fantastic location that exceeded our expectations.

From my first inquiry regarding dates and prices all the way through to the return of our security deposit, I received clear and quick responses from Greg to all my questions. In addition, Greg shared recommendations for places to eat and things to do in the area.

I have only very positive things to say about our experience renting from Greg and Julie!! We can't wait to rent from them again!! Aloha!

Perfection in Wailea

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 just returned from a week vacation in Elua Village. We have been to Wailea 6 times over the past 20 years and have always stayed at either the Marriott or Grand Wailea. Never again! The condo was absolutely perfect. Elua Village is conveniently located to both Wailea beach and Shops (walking distance) and Kehei. The grounds and beach are beautiful and so much less crowded than Wailea hotels/beach. The Unit was spacious and beautifully appointed and, importantly, just a 2 minute walk to the beach and main pool. The condo had everything we needed and made for a perfect vacation. I strongly suggest anyone interesting in visiting south Maui consider this unit versus a hotel.

Great location! Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find. Randy was helpful and informative. Check in was easy. The grounds are immaculate and the beach is literally a minute walk from the condo, and it's probably the most beautiful beach in Maui. The Marriott luau is a short walk away. So is a larger beach at the Grand Wailea. I was there with my four children, and the condominium was more than sufficiently spacious for everyone's comfort. We'll definitely be back. A+++!

Maui's Elua Village 701

  • 5 of 5

We've vacationed quite a few times in Hawaii in the past 23 years, but have never stayed in the same property twice. Our next trip Maui will end that streak when we book Elua Village 701 again.

From our initial property inquiry with owners to check-out, all went well with Elua Village 701. Positives included ease of booking, advisories from owners prior to check-in, activity recommendations (Willie K. at Mulligans on the Blue was a hit), immaculately kept and well stocked accommodations, functional/roomy layout and large deck, ocean view, and washer/dryer. The proximity of unit 701 to Village pools (equipped with community grills, sink, and kitchen), ocean front pathway, ocean, shopping, quick care (our son stepped on a sea urchin at kiter's beach near airport), and restaurants was wonderful. There was even a car wash station so we could drive to an amazing dinner at Hali’imaile General Store our last night on Maui in a clean car.

Our only vacation negatives were non-accommodation related...Sea urchin quick care visit, keys locked in rental car, and walking to gate at airport only seven days after arrival.

You'll enjoy Elua Village 701.
