“Truly Spectacular”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2014

This house is nothing short of spectacular. We chose this home for a family get-together and it worked perfectly. The Master Suite gave my husband and me the privacy we wanted, while our children and grandchildren had their own privacy. Each bedroom has its own bath. Everything was provided and ready for us upon arrival. We had T-times for golf, paddle boards, sea kayaks, snorkeling gear, as well as high chairs and cribs. Nothing was overlooked. We even took the opportunity to have a private chef (highly recommend just for the experience) cook dinner four different evenings, as well as adding on some additional cleaning. The sunsets were beautiful, the whales were breeching and the turtles surfed up to the rocky beach every night. Because of a tropical storm, we were able to watch professional surfers from our chairs on the grass. The larger hotels are within walking distance, but other than using the Spa facility at the Four Seasons, we felt no reason to leave this beautiful property. The management of Tropical Villa Vacations were extremely professional and easy to work with. For a group I would highly recommend this home. Everyone in our family had such a relaxing get-away that we plan to make this a bi-annual vacation and can't wait for 2016. There is nothing better than spending quality time with family, and this is the house to spend it in...truly spectacular!

The title says it all. We had a great experience with this rental because of the oceanfront location, the well-furnished house, and the professional and friendly interaction we had with the people at Tropical Villa Vacations. We look forward to returning.

“Beautiful estate!”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2013

We loved the Wailea Sunset Estate! This beautiful property was expertly maintained by Tropical Villa Vacations and was extremely comfortable. More importantly, it is positioned on one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet! The combination of service, location and quality is unbeatable. We will look forward to returning.

“Frustrating Exprience”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2012

We have worked with Tropical Villa Vacations for 7 years in a row...and our relationship with them is now over. We typically rent a different home in Kihei but it was not available this year, so we had to go with a different property and we decided on Wailea Sunset Estate because it was the only other property on Maui that had a pool cover. Having a pool cover was our #1 priority...so much so that we gave up having a sandy beach front and took on the home with the rocky water front. We were just excited to have a place where we felt a little safer with children around. There were 3 families staying in the home (5 kids total - all under age 5). The house is beautiful although we ended up not liking the layout as much as other homes we've rented but that was not the problem. The problem was...the pool cover did not work and it had been broken for months. You can imagine the feeling we had - it felt like we'd been totally duped. At the point at which we found out that the pool cover did not work -- we had no recourse. We could have rented any home with a pool had we known the cover didn't work anyway. It ruined our vacation because Tropical Villa ended up putting up construction fence around the pool for us so that we had some protection from the open water -- and it looked terrible. The Tropical Villa team should have verified that the cover worked...they knew it was a top priority for us. To this day, the website listing for Wailea Sunset Estate on the Tropical Villa website still refers to the working pool cover. In my opinion, when you a paying a premium for luxury homes...this type of thing should not happen. I used to recommend Tropical Villa Vacations to all of my friends but I no longer trust them and will seek a more professional and honest company for our future trips.

Response from the manager We thank Carol and her family for their candid remarks. The pool cover at Wailea Sunset Estate had been in operation at the time we took their reservation. A few months prior to their arrival, the pool cover developed a significant problem. We were hopeful to be able to organize a repair, but after a series of various professional reviews and evaluations, we learned after their visit that the only process to repair the pool cover will be to permanently remove it and to essentially re-build the entire pool, or, to leave it installed but inoperable. One of the difficulties of maintaining a property on Maui is seaside corrosion and other environmental conditions that are beyond the control of the property owner or our firm. The fact that the Wailea Sunset Estate was one of possibly only 2 properties on the sunnier side of the island that made any attempt to ever install and maintain a pool cover, is a clear and solid indication that doing so is extremely challenging. There are only a handful of private homes on the ocean on the island of Maui. There are not a lot of other rental choices. The Wailea Sunset Estate is one of the nicest options in both South and West Maui, with a very large lawn that flows right down to the Pacific. Unfortunately, it was not possible to re-locate the family to another property with a pool cover, or we would have offered to do so. The few other oceanfront homes in South and West Maui were already pre-reserved at the time we received their reservation request, as noted by the guest herself in this comment. We granted the family a size-able cash refund equal to several nights stay - for their inconvenience. We were not insensitive to the effect the lack of a pool cover had on their vacation. We did offer a partial cash refund, that from my own past experience as a rental agent on Maui for 17 years, was something that not all other property owners would have offered. It is important to point out that one of the few other options on Maui with a pool cover is a great deal more expensive than the Wailea Sunset Estate. The Estate is by Maui rental market standards, a very affordable home for up to 10 guests, given it's size, waterfront location, and the value/cost of maintaining it. When we learned that the pool cover may not be put back into service, we requested our web services firm to update our sites. If they haven't yet completed that work, we apologize, but the final word on this matter was received not long ago. We will endeavor to update our sites in the next week - to remove references to the pool cover if any still remain on-line. I'd like to point out that the family does mention that we provided very good service for many, many years before this one glitch soured their opinion of our service. Since the Wailea Sunset Estate was first launched approximately 10+ years back, it has successfully hosted hundreds of very happy families. Please see the abundant real testimonials for the Wailea Sunset Estate at our website: www.TropicalVillaVacations.com. With the exception of a non-working pool cover, the Wailea Sunset Estate is as lovely as always. It just went through a full month of maintenance, including new plaster siding, paint, re-upholstery, tile and stone care, and some new guest-use inventory inside. We regret that Carol and her family had a less than ideal vacation. We hope that Carol will inquire with us again in the future so we have an opportunity to restore her confidence in our services.

“Beautiful House and Beautiful Location”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2012

Our second time staying at this wonderful house. We absolutely love the location, and the house is gorgeous. The owner spared no expense in construction - very nice materials, appliances, fittings, even the wood trim is excellent. The view is to die for, and the yard is lovely and large. Great location close to Wailea's restaurants and the polo beach. The folks at Tropical Villa Vacations are a delight too and provide excellent service before, during and after the stay.

“A paradise for our family vacation”

Reviewed 29 May 2012

We have rented this house for our family vacation for the past 3 years and it is truly perfect. The location is great...close to lots of restaurants and easy base to explore all of Maui. Wonderful house, terrific layout, lovely and comfortable furnishings and the beautiful waterfront yard is great for our grandkids. We love kayaking with the whales and turtles and then relaxing in the pool or on the lanai for stunning sunsets. House and kitchen are well extremely equipped and everyone at Tropical Villa Vacations makes sure that your vacation is trouble free. We will be back next year!

“Best Family Vacation Home Ever”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2012

This was the most amazing house at the most amazing location! Everything you ever wanted was here! It is so beautifully decorated and was so clean with all the amenities you could ever want! Top of the line in every respect. The pool, jacuzzi, lounge chairs, towels, everything you could ask for! We loved the tiki torches at night and the kitchen was amazing to cook in (what little cooking we did). We loved that there were spices and lots of basic pantry items at your disposal, even coffee! Tropical Villa was there when you needed them, they were awesome. It is so nice to be able to rent such a beautiful home to spend time with family. Way nicer than staying in a hotel. Total privacy! The only negative I can think of was that the guest rooms upstairs had to share the air conditioning unit. You had to have the same temperature in both rooms. One couple liked it cooler than the other. We all loved loved this home!

“A very memorable and fun stay, second time we have stayed here.”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2010

We loved the house, location, and the weather of Wailea. This house is good size. We sometimes stay at Polo Beach Condos just a short walk away when it's just a few people. If you have a family get together - this is the place. Pool, Hot Tub, walk to Polo Beach. This house has everything you need. Nice kitchen, bedrooms, etc. Check out the pictures on the web. Snorkel with the turtles just a few hundred feet away, watch the whales swim right past the back yard during whale watching season. We've been there twice and would go back again.
