Great view, but that's where it ends.
If it's an ocean view you're after then this would be a great property, however travelling with a 3 month old baby made this a terrible ending to what would have been a great vacation. I recently visited Maui for 10 days, first renting a house in Lahaina for 5 days, which was an absolutely amazing experience, zero problems with the house and great owners/management company. The second half of my stay was at this unit in Wailea, my overall first impressions were pretty good, the condo was clean but very hot inside. The air conditioning took some time to cool the place down, and with the requirement of turning off the air conditioner when you're not in the unit it became a little challenging cooling down the place. The condo was quite well stocked, with the exception of dishwasher soap which we had to purchase ourselves. I also had to wrestle two rather large cockroaches, which the owner later explained to me is a problem everyone is dealing with due to the large amounts of rain the island has received, for the record, neither of these two points were an issue in the first half of my stay in Lahaina. What really made this an awful experience was the fact that I had a 10pm flight on my last day, and because of that I had made prior arrangements with the owner, Cliff, to have a late checkout, for an additional cost which I was more than happy to pay. Cliff never communicated these arrangements with his wife, and as a result I had two very rude voice messages from her demanding that I get back to the unit as soon as possible because I was supposed to have checked out at 11am. Once I arrived at the unit she again was quite rude and told me that I had to get out as soon as possible because she has another couple arriving at 3pm. I told her that I had made arrangements for a late checkout and she insisted that I did not, again telling me that they would never do such a thing. After I finally forwarded my emails to her regarding this late checkout things changed, she was a little more apologetic, however still demanding we leave. After calling her husband we were offered accommodation at a hotel near the airport free of charge, however I did not want to check in to a hotel at 3pm, haul my 3 month old daughter around all day, just to sit and wait for our 10pm flight, that was not my idea of spending my last day in Hawaii. I still have not received any sort of apology from Cliff himself. Save yourself the trouble...
