Wailea Elua Village Complex is amazing the condo unit...not so much!
This property complex had many positive things about it such as beautiful beaches, perfect location and the actual set up of the complex was great. The pool and beach are steps away from each other and there are plenty of green space for kids to run around on. The owner of the unit was very quick to respond and easy to deal with. The unit itself however was just average in our opinion. This is our third time staying at the Elua Village and we weren't as impressed with this condo as the others we have rented previously. Although the condo was clean, it was VERY dated. It needed a lot of upkeep such as light switches were falling off and the shower head was grimy, the smoke detector was not up to code etc, just to state a few. The kitchen was NOT renovated as the description states - the countertops were, that's all. The cupboards were old and the appliances were ancient. The owners description stated that the unit was completely renovated inside and we did not find that to be the case at all. There is a reason there is only one picture of the unit on this posting. I was naive and just assumed this unit would be renovated like the others we stayed at previously, but that was not the case. Lesson learned and we will always ask for extra pictures of the condo we will be renting in the future. As well, the description stated the condo had all the amenities of home. We found this condo to be pretty bare bones with amenities - we had no dishwasher detergent, no laundry detergent and very minimal spices/condiments for cooking. I understand this is the luck of the draw when renting a condo, but it was very disappointing to arrive into a bare kitchen for cooking our meals. It becomes an expensive trip to the grocery store. The barbecue took forever to cook the food and the propane was low. The actual unit is at the very top of the complex and we honestly heard traffic and saw headlights of vehicles all night long. Lastly, the owner only had one key available for us. This made it highly annoying if my husband and I wanted to leave separately for the day. We were constantly trying to hide the key outside the unit so we could get back into the condo if the other wasn't there. Not ideal. That being said, we still had an amazing time in Maui, the sunsets on the Lanai were beautiful and the blue canopy chairs located by the ocean were amazing to sit in!
I am sorry my vacation home did not meet your expectations. I have had over several hundred guests that because of my price point was able to enjoy a wonderful vacation in Wailea Elua Village in an oceanfront property, who otherwise could not afford the location. The appliances were replaced about 3 years ago. Only the refrigerator has not been replaced but it works so I don't see a need to buy a new one yet. The brand new BBQ grill on the lanai was purchased just last September 2016. Most condo rentals only provide salt and pepper, not all spices required for cooking. The amount and type of kitchen condiments and alcoholic beverages within the condo are available based on what guests leave each other to use, as well as beach toys and boogie boards. We provide laundry detergent and dishwasher soap and detergent sufficient for a one week stay, not longer as your stay was. Unfortunately, the guest before you lost one of the two keys we usually provide our condo guests at check in, and we had to ask the HOA to provide replacement keys as these are special keys that are unable to be duplicated by just anyone. The VRBO listing provides a link to my personal website at www.waileaoceanviewcondos.com for more photos and information about the condo.
I at least hope that you were able to find time to see and feel the beauty and magic of the surroundings.
Our Favorite Spot!
This was our second visit to this unit. Our first was with our daughter and that's when we decided we loved the comfort of staying in a condo vs a hotel. We returned for our 15 year anniversary. The condo is still great! It is clean, comfortable and has everything you need to settle in, including a full kitchen. The breeze and the view from the lanai are amazing. It's so peaceful, everyone is so friendly and the grounds are immaculate. I LOVE having a washer and dryer and being able to wash my clothes and towels. Having the kitchen is great! We feel like we've mastered our visit (and future visits) by stopping at Costco/grocery store on our way in to stock up for our stay so we are not constantly having to eat out. We love being able to park for FREE right in front of the condo and walk right up the stairs to our unit. Its a short walk down to our favorite spot on the blue chairs where we spent the majority of our vacation. I grabbed a book from the book shelf and packed the cooler that's provided on the patio and our days were set to relax and take in the beauty. We stayed 15 days and it was hard to leave as the condo makes you feel at home. The condo is lovely and priced great! We miss it already and can't wait to get back!
Already ready to go back to Wailea Elua!!
This property is amazing, and a great value considering the hotel rates on either side of Wailea Elua. The grounds are beautifully maintained, and the beach and pool areas were just perfect for a fun filled family vacation (you can't find a more kid-friendly beach on the island!). The Owner was excellent in follow-up and communication, and was extremely flexible and responsive when we decided we wanted to extend our stay at the last minute.
A perfect 1 bedroom with everything we needed (kitchen full of supplies, great dishwasher and washer/dryer), and a view from the deck that I will continue to dream about.
Thank you for the great stay!
