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

Please note, due to a change in the Maui County Fire Code, individual lanai BBQs are no longer allowed at Elua Village. However, community BBQs are available at the two pool areas, as well as other locations throughout the property.

In October 2019, we completed a 6-month, top-to-bottom, remodel of our condo! All the windows and sliding lanai doors were replaced, and we even added another sliding door in the living room to expand the ocean view! All the flooring was replaced with beautiful porcelain plank tile (inside as well as out on the lanai). Both shower enclosures were also renovated with the porcelain tile. We basically took the condo "down to the studs", rebuilt it, and the result is amazing! Please check out all the updated photos of the "new" Elua 701. Our condo is now even more beautiful than our existing 155, five-star Traveler Reviews indicate!

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 book our condo, or send an email to ask a question, you will interact directly with us, not a management company. After all, isn’t VRBO supposed to be Vacation Rental “BY OWNER”?

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 58-inch Samsung Smart 4K UHD television and a Sonos soundbar system 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, 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, 40-inch Vizio Smart 4K television, and over-sized spa bath towels. The large, ocean view, second bedroom also has new 'California King' with high-thread-count sheets, 40-inch Vizio Smart 4K television, 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, and we do not offer daily maid service.

Our home has all the usual amenities that you would expect... and more!
- 3 Smart 4K TVs, and Sonus soundbar system

Wailea Elua Village, Unit 701 Reviews

We loved the great care that the owners have taken in decorating this home with such special items. We cooked a few times for dinner and ate breakfast on the lanai every morning. The kitchen is fabulous and they have thought of everything that a cook needs. The beds are also very comfortable, and it is such a quiet, peaceful location. The closets are also roomy and thoughtfully laid out and the bathrooms are well designed. The main pool is perfectly located by the beach, and I snorkeled at the beach almost every morning. Lots of turtles! We also snorkeled at Ahihi Nature Preserve and that was special. The people volunteering there were great. The hidden gem is definitely the private overlook down the path from the condo and we spent almost every evening there watching the sunset. Check in was very easy and clear. The crew who run the condo are just first rate all the way around. We've been going to Maui since 2000 and this was our first time to rent a condo. Our last two trips we stayed in Wailea but at hotels including the Hotel Wailea, the Four Seasons and the Andaz. Frankly, you get so much more bang for your buck at your wonderful condo. And you have laundry facilities handy! I visited Iao Valley State Monument for the first time and that was neat and a nice drive. On the way back, we stopped at the Maui Plantation, which was unexpectedly delightful. We ate at Hali'imaile General Store three times -- it's my favorite place to eat in Maui!

This is a beautifully designed condo.My wife and I appreciated the island style furnishings, the artwork and the well-stocked kitchen and wine area. We had our breakfast every morning on the lanai and took in the ocean views. At night we sat out and watched the stars. I really enjoyed having the beach so close. We left feeing refreshed.

We had the good fortune to spend the second half of our vacation at this property in the Wailea area. The landlord was responsive to the ultimate degree. He had restaurant suggestions, along with suggestions for local guides for things like going on a snorkeling trip. By the way, that turned out great, it was the great snorkeling experience of our lifetime and all thanks to Randy. The unit was well appointed, the project in which it is located looks like a four or five star resort, and the snorkeling right off the beach is excellent. We are from Florida and have been snorkeling on a number of occasions in the Florida Keys, and the snorkeling right off the beach at his unit, exceeded anything that we have done anywhere in the country. This comes with our highest recommendation.

The condo was amazingly beautiful and comfortable. The location was excellent, close to the beach and facilities. The check in process was seamless with check in details provided well in advance. Everything was thought of to make for a perfect vacation. Randy and Julie were perfect hosts, Randy was very proactive in communicating and responding. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us and making our vacation such a memorable one.

It is wonderful there are hosts out there willing to share their art collections with us guests. The art in this condo was amazing. From the raw edge dining table to the prints in the guest room there was so much to look at. It’s a great place to stay for adults that appreciate the finer things in life.

Our experience with Randy and Julie through VRBO was seamless. We felt well informed and had all that we needed. Well appointed and lovely home! Beautiful view from the lanai and great location. Immaculate home! Pride of ownership and attention to detail shine.

Our stay was fantastic. We stayed from 09Sep-28Sep2022. The unit is perfectly located in the village to access not only the ocean path and beach but also all of the great amenities in the Elua Village. You can walk to the Island Gourmet and Akamai Coffee. The Condo was incredibly elegant but comfortable and we felt so at home. I would absolutely recommend to anyone. We of course enjoyed the lanai every morning and evening. Not only is the view fabulous but you can hear and see the ocean waves breaking on the beach. We cooked dinner almost every night and the kitchen provided all top of the line items needed as if we were in our own home. The check-in was seamless. The parking is perfect as the spaces are shaded by beautiful Bougainvillea vines covering the parking structure. I am so happy we scheduled 2 condo cleanings during our stay. Not only did I feel like we were caring for this home but eliminated one less worry to ensure we completely enjoyed our stay. There are instruction cards located throughout the space which were perfect. We all appreciated the guidance in ensuring we were safely operating all of the high end mechanics in the condo correctly. And of course, Randy and Julie are the Best Hosts in my book. Knowing that I could communicate easily with Randy was an absolute plus. Also, remember to arrange a late checkout with Randy. I played a round of golf before leaving for the airport at 6pm! You will love this condo. Don't wait....or it will be gone! Barb, Salt Lake City, UT Your Happy Renter Barb

Home away from home! Great amenities both with the property and surrounding area / neighborhood. Property was well equipped - owners were quite thoughtful to ensure all potential needs were met. Randy and Julie were proactive and communicative ….overall process was seamless and contributed to a restful and memorable vacation!

I was super impressed with every aspect of this stay. Randy was easy to communicate with and always prompt to respond. You can really tell he's poured his heart and soul into this home. The finishes are all of the highest quality and they have somehow thought of everything you might need and supplied it here so that you can focus on enjoying your vacation. There are easy to follow instructions/labels posted throughout the condo. The casually elegant decor was both comfortable and beautiful. I can see why this unit is booked up so far in advance. I would not hesitate to book with Randy again!

Randy and Julie’s property is amazing! The location was great and the condo included all amenities needed for an incredible stay. The view from the condo was breathtaking it was only a 3 minute walk to the beach. The grounds are immaculate and gorgeous. Their communication was great and were extremely responsive. We will most certainly be back! Thanks Randy and Julie!

This condo was the best place we have ever stayed! It is exactly as pictured and described on VRBO. It was extremely clean, well stocked, and provided everything we needed for our vacation (beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, a cooler, etc.). The location is excellent too! I will definitely return to this condo in the future and would recommend it to anyone!

Beautifully decorated 2 bedroom condo with all the amenities for a great stay. It was probably one of the best equipped VRBO kitchens I have ever seen. Elua Village itself provided two pavilions with pools and barbecues. If we head this way again, I would definitely see if 701 was available.

The condo was spacious, clean, well laid out, well equipped, and nicely furnished. You can usually tell when the owners stay at their own rentals, and it was clear that this was a well loved, well maintained property. The location was ideal. Most of what we did and saw was within an easy drive. The snorkeling spot to the right of the property was great, and the beach itself was calm and lovely. The overall property was well kept and beautiful. Security was nice and efficient. No complaints. We would happily return!

This is the Best rental we have stayed in. We have been in constant contact with the owner before arriving. The best equipped, maintained, cleanest, decor. The location is perfect for our needs, the complex amenities the best. Thank you. We will be booking again and have told our family and friends.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay in this unit over the winter holiday. This is our third stay in Elua Village, and by far our favorite unit on the property. The place has been beautifully updated from the kitchen to the living space, the bathrooms, and the large lanai where we enjoyed many sunsets and even saw a few whales. We also appreciated how quiet the unit was, while still being only a short walk down to the beach. Randy and Julie are incredibly professional to work with from booking to making certain we were will taken care of during our stay. In fact we have already planned our return visit. Mahalo for a beautiful stay!

Our stay exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at ~ 15 condos in Maui over the years and this unit was one of the nicest that we have stayed in. Everything was well stocked, the upgrades to the unit were very nice, and the location was fantastic. The owner was extremely helpful in providing suggestions for dinner, etc… and especially providing guidance regarding the COVID restrictions that were in place during our trip. We are looking forward to staying in this same unit in 2022.

We had a wonderful vacation in Maui and loved this Wailea Elua condo. Randy was so helpful with our booking. The condo location is so great, about 100 yards from the beach. We didn’t use our rental car for several days with many activities (beach, restaurants, watersports) walkable from the condo. The condo is beautiful. The floorplan and the furnishings are so lovely. The recent upgrades made the place feel brand new. The place is so well-equipped, with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. All items are new and working, which was a pleasant change from other VRBO properties we have visited. The views from the patio and the front room & bedroom are exquisite.

Our recent stay in Elua Village was beyond our expectations. Randy and Julie went above and beyond to make sure our stay was exceptional. The condo was more beautiful in person! It was immaculate, spacious and stocked with everything you could ever need. We loved the fact that we could walk every morning along the ocean path. Spending morning and evenings on the deck looking at the ocean was spectacular. Hoping to be able to spend some more vacation time in Maui, and there is no where else I would rather stay. This was a 5 star condo!!! Becky ~ Rhode Island

This was our first time staying at the Eula Village and this property is exquisite!! We will certainly return to stay at this property again. It was perfect for 4 adults with equal size beds and bath space which is very important to us when traveling with other adults.

This condo is amazing! Randy and Julie are wonderful and friendly hosts who have thought of everything to make your stay fun, relaxing and 5 star worthy. The condo is beautifully decorated and has a well appointed kitchen with any and everything you need. The beds are super comfortable. The large lanai, living area and a bedroom have ocean views. It is about a 90 second walk to the beach - which is a cove with 2 points to snorkel - which we did every morning! The condo complex is lovely and is on a walking path that connects all the coves and resorts - great for morning and evening walks. Thank you Randy and Julie for an amazing stay - for sharing your lovely home, for activity and dining suggestions, for clear communication and checking in to make sure all was going well - we hope to be back for another vacation at Elua 701!

This is a fantastic location, coupled with superb features & style in the condo’s fit and finishes, supported by an attentive and very responsive owner. It doesn’t get any better than Wailea Elua 701 ! This unit is completely and tastefully furnished with tremendous attention to detail. Very top-end in all aspects. Wailea and Maui do the rest for an exceptional vacation. What a great 2 weeks we spent here with our family; we look forward to returning ! We travel often, and rent extensively through VRBO. This might be the very best accommodation/set-up we’ve ever encountered. Mahalo to Randy & Julie ! May 2021

Randy and Julie's condo in Elua Village is like being in your own home--except you are on Maui with an ocean view. This condo is well maintained, very clean with every imaginable amenity provided and the location in Wailea is the best. Even the closets are outfitted with beautiful wooden organizers to make your unpacking a breeze. All of us in our three generational family enjoyed our week stay in this condo. Beach access, snorkeling area, walking path, tennis court and two pools are just steps away--and, The Shops at Wailea are minutes away. There was something for everyone. Randy communicates well before and after your visit too. Trust me--you won't be disappointed if you stay in this Elua Village condo--we certainly weren't. I highly recommend it!

Our family of 4 was very impressed with the condo at Elua. Everything shown and stated in the description was accurate. Our children enjoyed the two beautiful pools, the Elua Beach only seconds away, and the serene floral grounds with pathways to explore. This particular condo has all the amenities anyone could ask for and fit our family of four extremely comfortably. The owners made sure our time in Elua was worry-free. We took advantage of their many recommendations to restaurants, snorkeling sites, activities, and local attractions. I would definitely recommend this property if you are looking for a great condo in which to stay - Elua is your spot!

June 2012
Our family of 4 adults, enjoyed our time in your beautiful condo. Randy, the owner was super easy to work with. Very timely on his response, discribe the condo unit perfectly. As previous owners of a Elua village unit, we found this unit very clean, the kitchen had everything you could think of! And the view was spectacular, large deck, TV's in each room, with large Flat screen in the living room. Easy access to the pool and beach, and the condo was very quiet. We look forward to renting this condo again in the near future and thanks again Randy and Julie for sharing your awesome Elua condo.

Randy and Julie's condo is in a perfect location. It takes just a few minutes to walk to the beach and it's a short drive to some excellent restaurants and shops. The unit is completely furnished and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed, and there are plenty of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and 2 boogie boards to take to the beach. It was very easy and a pleasure to work with Randy. When our flight to Maui was cancelled and our vacation was cut short a day, Randy had already refunded my credit card for that missed night by the time we arrived home. He also provided us with a list of his and Julie's favorite restaurants that was very helpful. My husband, two sons and I would really like to return here in the near future and we would definitely recommend it to anyone planning a visit to Maui.

I would rate this property as very good, but there is only "excellent" or "good" to choose from. The property was as described and reflected in the photos. While the condos in Elua are getting old, this one was well maintained and clean. It has excellent amenities and was well provisioned. The location of the condo and the public areas are superb. Elua is a special place with a first rate Maui location, a wonderful beach and beautiful grounds. The vistas are also outstanding. The only drawback to our visit was the hotel construction next door. It was very dusty and while the noise level was minimal in our condo, the level at the pool was very loud on occasion. This was fully addressed by the owners prior to our rental, but it did detract from our stay at times. Speaking of the owners...they were candid, helpful, and a pleasure to deal with. In fact, in 40 years of renting, I can say that they were by far the best in communicating with us. What a pleasure the rental process was! All in all, aside from the temporary construction project, it was a relaxing stay at a marvelous location that is owned and operated by caring and very helpful people. I would recommend this unit to everyone!

We recently returned from two weeks in Maui. We have been to Wailea many times, but this is the first time we have stayed in this unit. We were so happy with our experience that we have aleady booked to return next year. A lot of thought has gone into making the condo accomodating and comfortable. Small touches were appreciated. We arrived late, os it was nice to find packets of coffee, soap, shampoo, toilet paper, and more before we coould ge to the store. This was greatly appreciated. For those of us who like to cook, the well stocked kitchen was great. Every item needed was provided. The kitchen as well as the barbacue grill were immaculate. The view from the lanai was great in the morning and the fact that it is covered from the sun made it perfect for morning coffee and paper, .The arrangement of the bedrooms is very nice. The master bath and bedroom can be closed off from the other bedroom and bath which makes it great for privacy and noise if some guests are earlier risers than others. The proximity to the pool, the foorpath and aparking are pluses. In summery, the condo is comfortable, well appointed, and immaculate. We were veryh pleased with our stay.

We have no regrets at all with our choice of this unit. It exceeded our expectations. We could see whales through the living room window. "Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc?" Yes. "Was the property clean, was it well-maintained, etc?" Yes. "Did the owner provide good customer service?" Yes, exceptional. "Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative?" Yes. "What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike?" Walking along the beach walk. Boogie boarding. Snorkeling. Whale watching. Driving up Mount Haleakala to see the sunset. Restaurants we ate at (they all were good): Within walking distance (a mile?): Matteo's, Monkeypods, Pita Paradise, Subway, Cheeseburger's. Kihei: Joy's, Antonio's, MacDonald's, Subway, Maui Tacos. Ma'alea: Beach Bum's Lahaina: Cool Cats. Pa'ia: Momma's Fish House--very good, but very, very expensive.

Our thanks to Randy and Julie for sharing their wonderful vacation spot with us. Wailea Elua Village is beautiful...very meticulously maintained. The condo itself was equipped with everything we needed for a great vacation. We ate out, we cooked in, we swam, we read, we walked, we talked, we watched the sun set, and we enjoyed ourselves beyond words. We circled the entire island, and didn't find a prettier spot than Wailea! Randy did a great job of contacting us in a timely manner, keeping in touch, and supplying us with information to make our trip even better. We'd recommend this spot to anyone making a trip to Maui!

This was our 2nd visit to this property. This time for 3 weeks. Settling in was automatic. This condo has the feel of a well kept home, with close proximity to the club house, pool and beach. Correspondence with owners is immediate and professional. Their activity recommendations were helpful (especially the snorkel with Suzie @ Turtle Town). So many daily moments with family (representing 3 generations) were enhanced by the accomodations and Elua village. By the end of our stay this experience will be hard to repeat... but we'll be back to try! Highly recommended.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
