Had a great time
We recently celebrated our 50th anniversary with family in Maui. We loved the house and furnishings, everything is so beautiful. The short walk to the beach is fabulous, and our lanai overlooked the swimming pool and waterfall, so had a gorgeous view in distance as well as the pool area, especially enjoyed listening to the waterfall. We slept well, comfortable beds, and the room had curtains that kept out the light. The kitchen was well appointed once we found the knives. (Secret drawer). Loved the built in double frigs and freezers. Gila sent out great suggestions which we followed for snorkeling, food etc. Her best suggestion of all was to use Matt, the concierge to do our bookings. He was FANTASTIC, made life so much simpler for me. (Patient, thorough, and gave great suggestions and made all the arrangements for party boat, horseback riding, zip lining, restaurants, and scuba diving). Truly a trip of a lifetime. Only drawbacks: Elevator did not work, we couldn't get living room TV to work (for long), and there is not a large family table inside, so ate meals and played games outside. Even though no one was around, we were busted by security after 10:00 PM for being too loud. Although the house sleeps ten, she charges extra for more than 8 people. It is a great location, the teenagers and adults would come back from the beach, grab refreshments, and head to the pool. The teenagers would go to Big Beach most days to boogie board (6 1/2 min by car, and a COOL drive), we loved going to the nearby shops and restaurants for happy hour and browsing and even a $6:00 breakfast special. I forget the name, but great service open to outdoor eating. So....hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.judith r.

Our family of 8 and an infant spent a week in this beautiful townhome. The accommodations were outstanding. Extremely clean and very well maintained. Beautifully decorated. Great shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Of course the sunset on the lanai was the very best! We saw whales while sitting out there. So exciting!! All the bedrooms were great sizes with each private bathrooms. Just a fantastic home in every way. Thank you Gila for sharing your home and memories with us.Teresa L.

Above and Beyond!
My boyfriend, daughter and son in law and myself had the pleasure of staying in this amazing townhouse for a week in November 2016. This unit is truly amazing! From all the high end appliances, abundance of glassware and dishes to the beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, you will not find a better home to enjoy in Wailea. It is directly across from the Grand Wailea and the Shops. The concierge met us upon our arrival and provided us with any information we may need during our stay. It was so nice to completely open the glass wall to the lanai and enjoy being able to bring the outside in, especially during morning coffee and evening sunsets. There is a beautiful pool with a soothing water fall adjacent to this home which also added an incredible experience. We will definitely return!!Paula M.

In a word, our stay in Maui was FABULOUS! We’ve rented other VRBOs, but this was the very best! Our family of 10 – including our 2 sons, their wives, and our 4 Grands – appreciated everything about this stunning villa. The accommodations could not have been better. The kitchen is amazing, the grill on the lanai offers a nice option, the bedrooms/baths are beautiful and spacious, and the washer/dryer was in use often with 4 kids. Also, nice to have the large plasma TVs, iPod docks, reliable Wi-Fi, and private garage. The view of the ocean from the kitchen, living room, and lanai is SPECTACULAR – even better than the photos! The location is wonderfully convenient – a short walk thru the Grand Wailea to the ocean or to the Wailea Shops. We began each morning with a yoga class on the beach or a walk/run along the lovely beach path. The fitness center by the pool helped us work off delicious meals and desserts. The guys liked the driving range and golf course. Our Grands LOVED the beach and the fun, but not congested, Ho’Olei pool with waterfalls and hot tubs. The luau at the Grand Wailea was awesome! Gila was very helpful, offering good recommendations. She has thought of every need, including complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas. Everything was better than expected! Thanks, Gila, for the precious memories our family will long cherish. We highly recommend this villa!Kathleen G.
