This gated 30-acre condo property is a series of buildings in three terraced rows on a hillside across the road from the Grand Wailea. (Their numbering scheme is so strange, it can’t be explained.) The views range from garden view at the front to full ocean view at the back of the property (though it is over the rooftops). Some of those back row views are quite spectacular from the huge lanais, which open up entirely into the living space via a sliding wall of glass (with optional sliding srreen) and Sub-Zero fridge.

The units are all enormous, 2-story three-bedroom units with 596–705 sq. ft. of lanais and their own internal elevator from the private garage level. The kitchens are huge and have top-of-line appliances and everything you need to cook up a gourmet meal. Each bedroom has its own ensuite bath. The master baths have deep infinity tubs that fill all the way to the top in a unique way—from the ceiling. (Some people mistake it for a plumbing leak.) The separate showers are either rainshower or full-body showers. All units are expensively furnished with luxury bedding. The master bedroom even has its own fridge. There is a mid-week housekeeping service for stays of five or more days.

The grounds are not much to speak of, but the pool is lovely with a large waterfall and two spas. There is also an outdoor kitchen there for the guests. They have an on-site concierge to get you anything you want (for a fee), including pre-stocking your unit with groceries. They will shuttle you to the Grand Wailea so you can enjoy the pool, beach, day spa, restaurants, etc., at which you have full signing privileges, if you book directly through the resort.

The main downside to this property is its location across the road from the Grand Wailea. You’ll almost always use the shuttle to go to the beach. The rates can jump a lot from garden to oceanview, so only spring for those if you really care about the view. Rates 3/4s (2,563–3,301 sq. ft.) are $1,245–$4,695. 3-, 5- or 7-night minimum depending on time of year.

What Readers Have to Say

“Our family just returned from 11 days on the Big Island during which I used your book extensively. I had found your guides to be an excellent reference source on a previous trip, and bought the updated version for this one. Like before, I really appreciated the sound advice on activities as well as places to stay and eat…we had a truly memorable trip that we will talk about for years to come…Thank you for doing such a superior job of reviewing and explaining all the facets of the Big Island. I don’t know when I’ll be going again, but I do know I’ll be buying another copy of your book when I do.”
