About Diane Smith

DJ & Diane Smith are from Napa, California. DJ is an energy & transportation consultant & Diane runs the family vineyard business. They travel to Maui 2-3 times per year, truly consider Polo Beach their 2nd home and care for it as such.

Diane Smith purchased this condo in 2011

Why Diane Smith chose Wailea

The weather in Southwest Maui is the most dependable, vacation friendly climate in all of Hawaii, It is eternally sunny. When we walked into this beautiful condo, we knew we had found our dream vacation home. You have breathtaking views and can hear the ocean from every room. Living is easy at the Polo Beach Club.

What makes this condo unique

Being so close to the water and up on the 8th floor, we feel a part of the ocean. You can hear and smell the sea from every room. Because we are so close to the ocean we find ourselves going for lots of spontaneous swims (early morning & sunset especially). I love the herb garden, I use it daily when I visit. The staff are very friendly & helpful. We can walk over to the Kea Lani if we don't want to cook, we don't have to even get in the car. There is complimentary concierge service available.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this condo. The location was perfect. Very relaxing and very close to the beach, easy access, beautiful views. We watched two whales from the balcony on our last day. The condo is very nice, everything you need in the kitchen, washer and dryer for your laundry or towels. Beach chairs and umbrellas were in one of the closets which was very handy. We recommend this condo! We hope to be back!

My husband and I were married at the Fairmont Kea Lani (next door) 20 years ago. We brought our two daughters with us to celebrate and share the beauty of the island we experienced 20 years ago. With two continuously eating teens, we decided to rent a condo with a kitchen to keep them fed and watered, less expensive than ordering food at a resort. My daughter found this listing for the Polo Beach Club right next door to the Kea Lani which we nabbed immediately.

Penthouse 801 was fabulous! The views, the space, the accoutrements all wonderful. We loved coming "home" to this condo. The best seat in the house is the lanai! The grounds are well kept. Kinda had a social gathering at the grills in the evening. People brought down a beverage of choice and their grillables and sat around and chatted while grilling. Very pleasant.

Highly recommended is Demming's Delivery Service!! Having your groceries for dinner and breakfast already in the fridge and nicely organized on the counter was a plus, especially after a long day of travel!! Demming is great to work with and very accommodating. There was one slight error with our order but was quickly and efficiently corrected. It is a little spendy but worth every penny! Take it from a mom!!

Destination Residences (the rental management co) was very accommodating. Concierge service was spot on! Very helpful. We enjoyed many activities booked by them. Even last minute the night before the 4th of July, the concierge got us 4 tickets on a boat to watch the fireworks in Lahaina with Maui Adventure Cruises (great fun). Shuttle service was excellent! My daughter had one of her bucket list items checked off when a Tesla arrived to pick us up!! I'm thinking a van, but no, a Tesla! Tesla "Ben"! Nice guy.

We recommend Fabiani's Italian restaurant! We went back three times. The owner was very accommodating. I ordered a sea breeze (vodka, cranberry and grapefruit juices). The bar didn't have any grapefruit juice so the manager ran to the local market to get some for my drink. And the food is fabulous!!

Words can't completely explain how wonderful our stay was! We surely didn't want to leave, but who wants to leave paradise?! We will return to Penthouse 801 if available. :)

The condo was excellent! The location was great because we were out of main traffic but very close to town for shopping and dining. The decorations and layout of the condo was very conducive to relaxation. The sunsets , well they were breathtaking, and the views of ocean activities were so interesting. The thing that made our stay so great was the rapid response to our reservations and answering all of our concerns in such a timely manner. We received everything that was promised and the condo met all our expectations. If we are fortunate to visit Maui again, we will definitely try to come to Polo Beach Condo 801!

Beware of the Owner Manager, NOT HAPPY

  • 1 of 5

My family has traveled many years to Maui, and i have always wanted to stay at the Polo Beach resort. This unit has been remodeled and the furnishings are very nice. The price is very high and i expect the unit to match.

My first concern is that the units are over 30 years old like most of Maui. This unit is on the top floor and gives you a excellent view. along with this the railings on the way up to the top floor are extrmely low, along with the outside Lanai. I never felt safe, and would never take kids in this unit.

My concern with the owners is that when we arrived the building was under construction the 14 total days we were here. 450 solar panels were installed directly above us, making noise. And the pool was being remodeled the complete stay and we never were able to use it for even one day. i called and asked for a discount of explanation as to why we were not told in advance. i would not trust these owners

Owner's Response: . I have had numerous comments from my guests raving about the incredible views from the 8th floor, I have never had anyone say they feel unsafe on the 8th floor. The lanai railings are all to code. . Whenever I have an inquiry stating there are children, I ALWAYS ask the ages of the children. I do not rent to parents with toddlers or very young children. . This guest booked during low season. Low season in Hawaii is when routine maintenance and any minor remodeling projects are performed. The rate this renter paid definitely reflected low season pricing. I explained this to the said renter. . This renter was NOT without the use of a swimming pool. The Fairmont property right next door offered Polo Beach guests not only the use of their pool, but also towel service and food and beverage service. All my other renters during this period very much enjoyed this perk. . MOST IMPORANT POINT IN MY RESPONSE TO THIS RENTER IS: You were traveling with your parents who are in their 80's and you stated that they are mobility impaired. BUT YOU TOLD ME THIS AFTER YOUR STAY, several weeks after your stay in fact. Your stay was in October of 2015 and you are writing this review in August of 2016. . While I of course do not ask the age of my guests (except for the children), had you shared with me the age of your parents and the fact that they are mobility impaired , I would have suggested a condo unit on the first floor. . I have excellent communication with my renters, I have many renters who have stayed at my condo 4 or more times.
