“Heaven in Maui”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

If you are looking for a beautiful setting for a picturesque vacation, complete with exceptional service, then this is the place for you. Our group included myself and my wife, and my brother and his wife. We booked penthouse 502 (2 bedrooms) in November of 2011. Two days before our departure from KC, DRH called to advise of problems with the elevator serving 502, so we were switched over to Penthouse 512 (3 bedrooms) for same price. We knew 502 to be an exceptional unit (we looked at everyplace in Maui before booking it), so we were a tiny bit concerned....until we opened the door to P512. It is a corner unit with a wrap around balcony offering 180 degree views of the ocean. We have seen a lot of the world, but WBV and both units, 502 and 512, are the nicest accomodations we have been fortunate to utilize. We were greated like royalty, and Tracy recommended the very best tour options, and the best prices also. We highly recommend the drive to the top of the dormant volcano on Maui for sunrise, as well as the trip to Hawaii to see the live volcano, and the trip to Oahu for Pearl Harbor, etc. Also, can't thank Tracy enough for hooking us up with Jonelle Littleton at Wailea Photography for a 1 hour shoot. My wife is easy on the eyes, and I am not, but...Jonelle did a masterfull job of minimizing my flaws, and we got the best pics ever. The cleaning crew was just great, and the nicest cleaning crew we have ever encountered. The shopping behind the Villas is wonderful, albeit unkind to wallets....except for Whalers, where we bought lots of sandwiches for lunches, beverages, and some of our other grocery items. Most groceries we bought 5 minutes away at the Safeway at Kihi. The grounds, pools, beaches, etc., at WBV are kept in primo condition of course. We were there for the first 11 days in May...and think thats a wonderful time.....Just before schools shut down for the summer, and the rush of the crowds. Be sure to eat at Kimo's in Lahaina (coconut crusted mahimahi is fantastic), and Humu's next door at the Grand Wailea. WBV must have some strong connections with the man upstairs because the weather was fantastic. I can only think of the most positive remarks about WBV, and can hardly wait to go back.

WOW! This place was everything we asked for and more. The only reason why I didn't give it the full 5 star rating was because the sink in the master bathroom was clogged and the beds in the second bedroom sounded like they were going to fall apart any minute. The pillows were not that comfortable either but overall a great experience and we will be back!
The kitchen was amazing as well as the barbecue. We had two refrigerators and plenty of room to cook and eat. We wanted to have a rehearsal dinner at the condo but management denied our request because of two many people which would have been 16 people. This place could have managed that but it was ok in the end we only had half the people which they OKed.
The place is locked down like Fort Knox though. You have to have a key to get out of the complex as well as back in. Which has its benefits but also was a pain if you forgot your room key. Be sure to stay here! You will not regret it!!

Room Tip: Stay Here! It is definitely worth the price!

Family of four that stayed in Penthouse 309 for 8 nights near the end of March. The staff could not have been more accomodating and the Penthouse was exceptional. The unit had an ocean view and was well equipped. Any minor issue we had was quickly resolved by the management team. Tracy was very helpful and prompt in arranging dinning, transportation and other activities. We utilized the two pools and beach location daily and found the walk from the beach to our unit to be very pleasant given the well maintained grounds. The complex itself was a nice oasis from the activity along the beach walk and around the large hotels boardering the units. We really enjoyed the proximity to the Shops at Wailea. We would highly recommend this location and look forward to returning.

Love this place, its awesome. Beautiful grounds that almost look like a movie set (in a good way). It is right by the beach, with a cool running trail from the pool along the coast - amazing. It is the most relaxing place, quiet and easy to get work done if needed.

This was my 3rd stay, and will be coming back for sure.

This property was SPOTLESS and very, very upscale. The owners thought of everything even down to laundry detergent, tea, coffee, condiments, hair dryers and very well stocked with upgrade cooking utensils. The rooms are all quite spacious. It was so nice not to have to drive to a beach and hassle with parking, but rather a 3-5 minute stroll through beautiful landscaped grounds to get there. Would recommend going to the beach around 8 a.m. if you want first row seating for unobstructed ocean view. The beach attendants have the chairs,towels and umbrellas all set up for you - first come, first served!

Our family will definitely stay there again and I would highly recommend this property.
