The Wailea Sunset House worked out perfectly for our two families. The floor plan, back yard, pool, amenities and location was terrific. The "rocky" beach access was not an issue for us and we would rent this home again without hesitation. The M Family, 11/2016

We were married in Hawaii 25 years ago. Spending our anniversary in this beautiful home in this perfect location was so special! Yvonne and Randy made sure everything was perfect.

A 30th Anniversary: A week just the two of us and then a week with all of our kids. A wonderful celebration in such a beautiful location. Maui, our home away from home.

Your home has made our celebration memorable in so many ways and we truly cannot thank you enough. With much appreciation, the A Family, Vancouver, BC, Canada, 6/2016

The Wailea Sunset Estate was the best!! I celebrated my 50th birthday in that house and it was an experience like no other. The house was fabulous and in stellar condition!! Yvonne did a great job with making us feel very special as we got closer to our visit. We plan on visiting Hawaii again and I definitely will be using Tropical Villa Vacations for booking our next family vacation in Hawaii. Much Aloha! The T Family, 07/2014

This house was amazing. It was beyond what we expected. We want to thank you so much for the fantastic opportunity of allowing us to live here for a week. The memories we developed here and in this house are ones that are going to stay with us always. Here, this house became like a home. We laughed and we celebrated. We had a great time. Thank for allowing us such great moments. P.S. It was the best way to celebrate a 50th birthday! The T Family, 06/2014

Paradise found! What a perfect home to spend our family vacation. Thank you for thinking of everything we would need. The F Family, Lake Oswego, Oregon, 07/2014

Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with our family. We came to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday and we had a blast. To the next family or group: enjoy the sunsets and morning sunrise. The O Family & Friends from California, Pennsylvania and Ireland, 06/2014

We came for a 50th birthday too! We also celebrated a 72nd birthday, 51st wedding anniversary and 55th birthday. There was also a college graduation! A good time was had by all - no complaints here!... AND MOTHER'S DAY. The F Party, Southern California, Northern New York, Orlando Florida, 05/2014

This house is nothing short of spectacular. We chose this home for a family get-together and it worked perfectly. The Master Suite gave my husband and me the privacy we wanted, while our children and grandchildren had their own privacy. Each bedroom has its own bath. Everything was provided and ready for us upon arrival. We had T-times for golf, paddle boards, sea kayaks, snorkeling gear, as well as high chairs and cribs. Nothing was overlooked. We even took the opportunity to have a private chef (highly recommend just for the experience) cook dinner four different evenings, as well as adding on some additional cleaning. The sunsets were beautiful, the whales were breeching and the turtles surfed up to the rocky beach every night. Because of a tropical storm, we were able to watch professional surfers from our chairs on the grass. The larger hotels are within walking distance, but other than using the Spa facility at the Four Seasons, we felt no reason to leave this beautiful property. The management of Tropical Villa Vacations were extremely professional and easy to work with. For a group I would highly recommend this home. Everyone in our family had such a relaxing get-away that we plan to make this a bi-annual vacation and can't wait for 2016. There is nothing better than spending quality time with family, and this is the house to spend it in...truly spectacular! The F Family, 03/2014

Thank you for the opportunity for a wonderful family vacation experience. Beautiful sunsets, turtles and whale watching. Look forward to returning. The C Family, 01/2014

6 great friends visited for our 50th birthday. We will take a part of Maui with us home - "Learn to live in the moment!" The V Party, 12/2013

The best place I've ever stayed while on vacation! Couldn't have been better. Outstanding! The C Family, 11/2013

I am so appreciative of my son in law Mike C. and his wife Jabreka C., for giving us the trip of a life time. This place is so gorgeous. Everything you need in a house is here. We have enjoyed the pool and spa, watching the sun rise and set, listening to the sound of the ocean. The weather is so pleasant. Well, it's time to go back to Georgia where as it stands the weather is pretty cold. The C Family, 11/2013

Our family of seven - mom, 2 daughters and spouses and 2 grandchildren had a lovely time in your beautiful home. It truly was the vacation of a lifetime. We practically lived on the lanai and in the pool! You've thought of everything - I think we used every beach towel and still there were more. The staff was terrific, especially Yvonne and Donica. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday! The B & D Families, 10/2013

We had a great time in a perfect setting. We hope we can spend next year's vacation here too. Thank you! The P Family, 10/2013

We loved the Wailea Sunset Estate! This beautiful property was expertly maintained by Tropical Villa Vacations and was extremely comfortable. More importantly, it is positioned on one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet! The combination of service, location and quality is unbeatable. We will look forward to returning. The M Family, 08/2013

The title says it all. We had a great experience with this rental because of the oceanfront location, the well-furnished house, and the professional and friendly interaction we had with the people at Tropical Villa Vacations. We look forward to returning. Ken and Family, 07/2013

This was the best vacation ever! The waves are great and the sun is strong I loved it! Thank you I love the home. The B Family, 07/2013

Lamar S. celebrated his retirement from Shell by bringing all his kids and grandkids here to this beautiful place. I am one of the grandkids. I am Avian and I am 9 years old. I had a great time! Loved this place! Houston Texas Baby! 05/2013

Had such an amazing time with the comforts of this great home. 'Til next time...The H Family, 04/2013

What a wonderful home! We had such a great time! Hawaii is so magnificent. I just don't want to leave! Hopefully we will be back soon! The C family, 04/2013

This is our 4th year and we love it as much as ever. See you (and the whales & turtles) next year. The F Family, 02/2013

Three from Washington, 1 from Oregon and 1 from Alaska for great family relaxation, sun and warmth. Great house and location. When weather cooperated we snorkeled out front and saw turtles, eels and octopus. Lots of whale sightings. Enjoyed the open fire for special cooking. The F Family, 01/2013

Once again... a beautiful time was had by all! This year we were joined by our friends and it was truly lovely. The children played, explored and had many adventures. We will return soon. Mahalo! The M Family, 01/2013

Thank you again (3rd visit) for allowing us to share this beautiful location. Everything was perfect for our growing family - now 3 grandchildren on the vacation, and our children and spouses. The R Family, 05/2012

Our family had a wonderful stay in the lovely open home. The amenities, all the little extras that make this house like home, the flowers (loved them) and thoughtfulness and the impeccable cleanliness and organization of Wailea Estate. Alisa and housekeepers so friendly and helpful. Yvonne was fabulous. And the views and setting (even whales) is hard to leave. Thank you we love it here! The R family, 01/2012

We had a wonderful - wonderful family vacation in this beautiful home! The J Family, 11/2011

Great house, great views! Perfect pairing with great company and drinks! Oh so much fun! Had to get back to Boston. :( The T Family, 10/2011

We have been here for a week celebrating two 65th birthdays and one 40th. The house and grounds have been the perfect, spectacular place for a family celebration. We are going home (to British Columbia, Canada) with wonderful memories of this special place. The C Family, 10/2011

The house and service has been fantastic! Beyond expectations! We saw the turtles too - so cool! Thanks. The C Family, 10/2011

Aloha! Our family enjoyed our beautiful celebration of our parents "50th Anniversary" in this spectacular home. We appreciated all the wonderful amenities and beautiful sunrises, sunsets and most of all family time. Thank you for opening your house. We hope to come back soon. The B Family, 09/2011

You have a beautiful home! Thank you for allowing our family a chance to spend some well deserved time at the "Makena House". Wonderful weather, awesome waves and afternoon trade winds kept us cool. Mahalo and Aloha! The C Family, 09/2011

You will love this place so much! I know I did! We went to a Luau at the Grand Wailea, saw the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and loved it.

Beautiful Paradise! The C Family, 07/2011

Thank you again for another great Maui vacation in your home. Everything was perfect. Again celebrating our Anniversary with our family! The R. Family 05/2011

It was fabulous returning to this beautiful home again - our 5th visit here. This is the best place to spend time with our family & friends. Once again we would like to thank the owners for sharing your home with us. We would have loved to stay a little longer; it's always hard to leave. We are already talking about our return trip next year - until then...aloha and mahalo! The R.Family, 05/2011

Everything was perfect! Beautiful house in a beautiful setting, absolutely couldn't ask for anything nicer.

What a unbelievable time we had. Wonderful people and beautiful home. Thank you so so much for all you did - unforgettable. The K Family, 11/2010

Truly a dream vacation for our family. Love your home and the beautiful view of the ocean and sunsets. "Mahalo". The H Family 11/2010

We made the trip to honor my grandfather and it has truly been incredible. Lahaina is a true must visit for shopping and dinners. Bubba Gumps and Cheeseburger in Paradise were great. Save Mama's Fish House for the last dinner. It was the best food we had on the island. The shopping in Kihei, down by Foodland is the best and cheapest for local souvenirs. Full scuba gear in the garage so don't rent! Enjoy your stay! The K Family, 10/2010

Amazing home -amazing island. We had a super family time. I do not know who you are (owner), but you have a wonderful spirit of Aloha to open up to share this lovely home and land so that others can build incredible, life-long memories with their loved ones. And, that is just what we did! You thought of everything. This house lacks nothing. Thank you and Aloha. God Bless you and yours! The M Family, 10/2010

One of my favorite moments of this trip - and there are so many - was walking into this house for the first time. Holy-smokes its lovely!!! It is the perfect house to house all these wonderful memories with family and friends. I am so sad to be writing this goodbye now... But we will be back - my daughter, Harper, woke up at 3 in the morning crying, saying "I don't want to leave Hawai'i!". She will insist on our return. Mahalo! The H Family 09/2010

The Masterson's clan had a fabulous time in Wailea. The house is a joy between the pool and fabulous sunsets! I hope someday we can come back! The M Family 07/2010

This has been the most spectacular awesome trip, sharing this lovely home with our two sons, their wives, and four little grand-daughters will be in our memories forever. The quiet of mornings, winds in the afternoon, returning to quiet of living left us all spellbound, this home has it all, a perfect fit for our family of 10. The B Family 06/2010

We are celebrating our "60th" Wedding Anniversary here with our family! What a lovely home and surrounding area to celebrate and enjoy. Beautiful! Aloha! The D Family, 06/2010

We greatly appreciate the ability to share this beautiful place on Maui. This was the second week of two week (1st week on Hawaii) vacations/celebration of our morning. Our children, spouses and grandchildren we all able to share this great experience and look forward to a return visit. The R Family 05/2010

Thank you very much for the rental of your beautiful home. It has been amazing. When you built this home, you must have put a lot of thought in it. I cannot say much. I am at a loss for words. All we know is we do not want to leave. If you ever think of selling, call us. We will be back. The M Family 05/2010

This is a beautiful house, and amazing views. Thank you for letting us spend our vacation at your house. Aloha and Mahalo. The C Family 05/2010

Miranda and Randy of Vancouver had a great stay in both houses with 10 other family members. A wonderful place to share time with family, watching the whales and turtles, and the evening falling stars. Thanks!!! Hope to come again. 04/2010

The Makena House is beautiful and close to everything. Each night by the rocks, we would see sea turtles popping their heads up. At night we would sit by the fire, play guitar, and sing. Our vacation was wonderful!!! The P Family 04/2010

Wonderful time, great house and location. Snorkeling was outstanding. All our children cam over and all the grandchildren. Whales, dolphins, turtles, deer, fish, sunsets, stars! The R and R Families 04/2010

Mahalo for the incredible week in paradise! We had a fantastic time enjoying this beautiful property. The ocean, the pool and the breathtaking views made this our most memorable family vacation. We met the local deer and Steve the monk seal paid us a visit on Friday afternoon. The weather was perfect all week. Just sitting by the sea in the ocean breeze was so relaxing. Thanks again for the use of this wonderful home, we hope to return to Maui as soon as possible! The P and A Families 03/2010

Mahalo for allowing our family to enjoy your beautiful home. The perfect location for a perfect holiday. The S Family 03/2010

You could not ask for a better location than this! The home is beautifully decorated and well equipped and the views truly spectacular. We loved that we could walk to the beaches in just minutes and the huge grass lawn was a hit with the kids who still needed to burn off energy after swimming all day in the pool. The rental agency (Tropical Villa Vacations) made our trip a breeze to book and the introduction to the house easy. All the staff that entered the home to either clean or work on the grounds were extremely friendly and professional. Thanks for taking care of us! There are so many restaurants to choose from in the Wailea area: Nick's Fishmarket next door at the Fairmont is amazing and so was Spago at the Four Seasons. Matteo's Pizzeria was a delicious meal in a family friendly environment - you must try their cheesecake with mango sauce. Mahalo to the owner of this home who allows families like ours the opportunity to spend a bit of time in heaven. S Family 03/2010

What an amazing home and view! We had a wonderful time at the estate. Who would ever want to go home? Thank you for allowing us into your home allowing us into your home and providing everything we needed to make it ours for the week!

Joe and I had a fabulous honeymoon here! You guys have everything we could possibly need. Thank you for the beautiful week in Maui. We loved all the special touches.

We have had a wonderful time in your beautiful house - 4 grandchildren all under 4 years. The pool and spa a hoot! The staff at TVV super. We are all sad to leave Paradise. The J. Family, Langley B.C. 11/2009

Thank you so much. Crying as I write this. Such an amazing house in a truly spectacular place. Mahalo! 11/2009

Absolutely a stunning place. The Wailea Sunset Estate had absolutely everything you can think of. We had a wonderful relaxing stay here. Being close to the other resorts is great for going to dinner. Had exceptional meal at Spago's (Four Season). Look forward to coming back to Maui again. Thanks, S & L Family 10/2009

To all the staff and Tropical Villa Vacations, Thank you so much for making our Maui vacation so special. The house was amazing, nothing beats the spectacular views and sound of the waves. Our two young children loved the pool and picking rocks out on beach. To top it off, Chef Dan caught a live lobster and fish for our final meal (out back right before dinner) Amazing! Thanks again, Mahalo Cory, Heidi, Brooke and Brady, Edmonton AB Canada. 10/2009

Hey Ya`ll, Our Louisiana Family vacation was awesome. We had a wonderful time. The scenery was beautiful and the house was superb.

This is our third trip to Maui, and we loved this location the most. Your home is so beautiful and tropically furnished we get the full feeling of the islands! Could not keep our eyes off the ocean for fear of missing a whale spout or flipper! The pool was well used and enjoyed. Tropical birds visited daily. Paradise!! So glad you built this place and we got to come and enjoy! 10 days of peace and contentment!! Thank you for sharing! The W family. 04/2009

To Concierge Yvonne, I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay and appreciated your services. Our holiday could not have been better. Thanks again. H Family 03/2009

Words cannot begin to describe the beauty of your home. Our vacation was awesome from the moment we stepped into the house. We immediately know that this was going to be the vacation we were looking for. The kids loved the pool, the beach and just relaxing on the lanai. The kids have tears in their eyes as they want to stay longer. Thanks so much for sharing your awesome home and we can`t wait to return. Your home is heaven on EARTH!! Mahalo! The R Family 12/2008

The Wailea Sunset Estate far exceeded our expectations and we had a fabulous time there. The house, the setting and the furnishings could not have been better and greatly contributed to our enjoyment of our vacation. When you plan so far in advance for something and look forward to it (not to mention spend a great deal of money), your hope is that it will be everything that you anticipated and it was even better than that! Thank you so much for helping to make our once-in-a-lifetime occasion so special for all of us. C Family 11/2008

We are so sad to depart today! This house is truly amazing and a perfect place to relax and party! The view is spectacular and we enjoyed star-gazing from the pool. This was a perfect place to celebrate recent weddings, anniversaries, and just being together! It was hard to tear ourselves away in the evening to go to dinner, because we loved it here so much. Thanks for opening your home to us! D Family 09/2008

Wow! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cozy, relaxing, and fun home with my family and I. Our family vacation was all about spending time with my parents, husband, brother, and his fiance, and this was the perfect setting. We loved the pool and the bonfire down by the beach. The woodwork and design of the house is exceptional. And every time we needed something we found it. Oh, and the tiki torches outside are awesome! We will never forget this special time we all had together. We were able to enjoy the beauty and culture of Hawaii without any crowds. We hope to come back one year with a lot of grandkids! B Family 07/2008

I am writing these comments laying in one of the pool lounges. I am looking at this magnificent view in front of me one last time, so I can always remember the great time our family had here. From the early morning birds singing and beautiful low tides to the afternoon winds and the spectacular daily sunsets, this property has everything you can possibly imagine - (oops, I forgot the relaxing nightly bonfires at the beach pit). As General MacArthur said, "we will be back with more people". One last note to thank the Tropical Villa Vacations staff. From my first contact with them to Irene's welcome last week, a truly professional experience. Special Thanks to Yvonne, "The tours were great". M Family 07/2008

Upon our departure, we reminisce about the amazing week we've had. What a great place to spend time with family. The memories we have will be long lasting and forever....We are grateful for the opportunity to make your home our own - if only for a week! B Family 07/2008

We would once again like to thank the owners for sharing your home with us. We are planning to return again next June; which would be our 4th year! Rethman Family 07/2008

The pictures don't do it justice. Everyone at Tropical Villa (Vacations) were always very responsive, courteous, and helpful. We will definitely recommend to anyone we know going to Hawaii. Our accommodation (Wailea Sunset Estate) was truly amazing! This house helped make this a vacation of a lifetime! B & P Families 06/2008

This house provided the perfect backdrop for our family to share the wonderful experience of how much we love our children and their loving spouses, and the best grandkids we could hope for. May each one who experiences this house be as happy as we were this week. You have thought of everything. The C Family 05/2008

A fantastic experience at an amazing property. We found that no escape anywhere else in Maui could provide us with the pleasures of this house. Thank you for sharing this amazing property with us. We all hope to do it again! J Family 06/2008

The C, N, and C families enjoyed the most amazing time celebrating life, love, and laughter! From sunset this place was awesome! Thank you for opening your home to us! It was a vacation of a lifetime! 05/2008

(The Wailea Sunset Estate) It's incredible. The most beautiful place we've ever seen. The golden setting sun, sound of crashing waves at night, and birds chirping in the morning is amazing! A wonderful place to be! C Family 05/2008

We loved the pool and the cottage was cool & quiet. We had a fabulous time; beautiful whales, turtles near the shore. Magnifico! The K Family 04/2008.

We had a marvelous vacation in Paradise! We ate every meal in your home - the kitchen was supplied with everything our chefs (family) could want. Loved every minute of our time in your beautiful home. As an ASID Interior Designer - I appreciated the minute details in each room! Lawn, pool, spa, beach etc., was enjoyed by all. The Y. Family 12/2007.

From the gorgeous carvings in every room, to the professional grade cooking tools in the kitchen to the bedroom balconies with pineapples in them - this is a fabulous AND highly functional vacation home! The details in the woodwork in every corner are truly exquisite. Having a croquet set in the backyard on the rolling lawn was a blast! The instructions for all of the remotes and electrical equipment were thoughtfully clear. Thank you for making our family vacation fantastic, relaxing and luxurious. You have created a simply stunning vacation home! The V Family 11/2007

Thank you so much. Your house is not only gorgeous, well-situated, and luxurious but so well-stocked with everything we could possibly desire. We have decided this was our most fun vacation. Thank you for making it so comfortable. The B Family, Emily, Sara, Adan, Franklin, Cathy, Sheldon and Emma. 09/2007

Irene, Thank you for your help. It was just what we needed under the circumstances (outbound flight cancelled by airline)! Please let everyone know how happy we were with all your help and services and with the Wailea Sunset Estate. We are hoping to be able to do this again. Regards, The B. Family 09/2007

I cannot tell you how much we love staying at the Estate, it is truly a little slice of Heaven for our family. It is also such a pleasure to work with (Tropical Villa Vacations) and your crew; you all certainly make this a wonderful experience for your guests, and we do appreciate everything! This is our second visit to this beautiful home and just as last year, we had a fabulous time. We will all be counting down the days until we return again next summer. Thank you Irene, Yvonne, Deborah (Sonny-we really missed seeing you), and thanks to the owner of this home for sharing it with our family. Until next summer. The R.

Day 2 We want to buy the house! This is the most beautiful home, a great way to reconnect with family! We stayed from 3/11 to 3/22 and the only reason I want to go home is because I miss my animals! Thank you! Aloha! We had a wonderful family vacation! Spring break was never this good before! The F. Y. and M Family 03/2007

Thanks for all of your assistance with setting up our vacation. In addition, please express our appreciation to Sonny for all of his help. We had a fantastic time. The house and grounds were absolutely beautiful. Hopefully, we can make it back sometime in the near future. Thanks again. Michael B. 11/2006

Aloha, if you are reading this then you might be the luckiest people in the world!! Trust us the pool is a blast!! This Thanksgiving was the most thanks worthy. Wailea Sunset Estate Rules! I'm so sad that we are leaving. Have fun! Laura, Joe, Mike, David, Dan and Dot B. 11/2006

The Wailea Sunset Estate is a dream come true. We felt right at home as honeymooners. It was a priceless experience on sharing our beautiful and special day. Mahalo! Melissa and Kenny G 09/2006

Great house and wonderful views, very charming and comfortable. Thanks to Yvonne and Sonny. The O. Family 09/2006

Our family has stayed at the Kealani Villas for the past 5 summers. We thought we might miss staying there, but this is so much nicer! Thank you for opening your home up to renters. It's been a fabulous 2 weeks and we are already reserved to return for 2 weeks next summer! Thank you to the staff at Tropical Villa Vacations as you have all been such a pleasure to work with and have made us feel so welcome. Just a short note. As my wife stated, we've been to Maui many times. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us - we had a great time and loved every minute here. Sonny, you're the greatest! Rethman Family 07/2006

We spent a fun-filled, sun-soaked week in this Maui paradise! In our group we had 1st, 2nd, and 3rd timers to Hawaii. It is always a pleasure to visit the islands! We will always remember the times we had with our friends and family. Everything was super. 06/2006

Thank you for letting our family stay in your house. We had a wonderful BBQ. The beds were really comfortable too! The fire was really warm when we sat there. Came for a day, stayed for seven. Thought we'd died and gone to heaven!! Thank you. Wish we could stay. We loved the house!! Its very nice to stay in. We had a blast. The fire pit rules! Loved the pool. Sidney, BC, Canada. 05/2006

The home was stocked with pretty much everything we needed except our food products, which of course we expect to buy while there. We loved having the beautiful big kitchen to cook it (we cooked most meals there), and it was so nice. And of course the BBQ got lots of use as well. It was great having the kitchen at the Kea Lani villa, but it was SO small, and the patio area was tiny also, because the splash pool takes up most of the space. The Estate although very beautiful, is also very livable and comfortable; just like being at home, and that is what we loved about it. We all enjoyed the space and the privacy. We do not like crowds, so our entire experience at the Estate could not have been better. You really run a first class business and all of your employees are so professional, caring and friendly. I could see us vacationing at the Estate every summer, and hopefully the owners will continue to open up their home to renters in the years to come. Susan R. 07/2006

We are so thankful that you open your home. It enabled us to spend this time with our entire family. The morning coffees with us all together were a lot of fun, and I was impressed by the well equipped and well stocked kitchen. What a pleasant surprise, because our family loves to cook and this enabled us to do just that without having to run out and purchase every little spice. Thank you. I also must say we really enjoyed the great design of your home, it works very well, and the location is so wonderful. Thank you and God Bless You. S Family 03/2006

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family. It was as comfortable as home with the benefits of watching whales, spending time together as a family and enjoying the beauty of Maui. Thank you again. H Family 03/2006

What a beautiful house and wonderful vacation. The whales out front were so nice to watch (all day long). The house was more than I ever dreamed. Thanks so much. D Family 03/2006

We will always remember this vacation! You have a beautiful house and location and we felt right at home. We also saw more whales (and breaches!) than all our other times here combined. Thank you for everything - mahalo! L Family 02/2006

Whales, Whales, Whales! Wonderful to see them right up close from the comfort of your deck! Gorgeous views! Peace and quiet (mostly). Great to have a place large enough for the whole family. C Family 02/2006

What a wonderful way to end 2005, and such a positive way to start off 2006. You have a home to be cherished and we feel blessed to have been here. Mahalo! F, R, & R Families 12/2005

Our daughter and son-in-law gave us a wonderful gift of bringing us to your fantastic home for a vacation. Your home has every convenience imaginable and we enjoyed it so much! The view out to the ocean is "picture post card" perfect! Maui is so beautiful and we have been so blessed to be here. The weather was perfect and we hate to leave. Mahalo! F Family 10/2005

We loved your lovely home, all the appointments & special things to see and enjoy. It was memorable for our family and we will treasure the memories forever. T Family 10/2005

We came as 2 families not sure what to expect,what we found here was beyond our greatest expectations! We had a fabulous time and we hardly left the premises .This is certainly one of the most amazing homes and location anywhere.We will be sure to return in the near future.The pool was fantastic and the hot tub was a special treat for the grown ups at night.We roasted marshmallows with the kids in the evening and collected sea shells in the day time. Each room in the house was better than the last and the bathrooms are beautiful! Thank you for helping us achieve the best for our first vacation as a family of 4. Mahalo! The G Family, 9/2005

We were amazed by the beauty of the house and views. We were here to celebrate a wedding,60th birthday, 40th anniversary. This is the perfect place for a family to be together. We enjoyed the pool,sunsets,and meals that we made. Our favorite thing at night was to get into the hot tub,it was the best way to end our day. Our family came from Omaha and Kansas City and we did not want to leave. We hope to come back and enjoy this house again! Great place! The D. Family 09/2005

Thank you for this lovely home. It has such a welcoming feel that we just loved. It was a perfect week. H Family 07/2005.

Thank you so much for such a lovely home. Our family thoroughly enjoyed what a beautiful home and location that it is. We had a wonderful time and hope to stay at your home on future returns. S Family 07/2005

The Wailea Sunset Estate was better than I imagined. Everyone (at Tropical Villa Vacations) was very helpful and fantastic to deal with during the entire (reservations) process. We all loved the location of the Wailea Sunset Estate and look forward to returning soon. D. Family 06/2005 (Visit Hawaii at least two to four times each year!).

There are not enough words to express how we have felt looking at the views from your house, they are beautiful. We are so happy to have been guest of our families at your home, it was wonderful chance to spend time with my daughter and grand daughters. B family 05/2005.

I just loved the ocean view everyday. C Family 04/2005.

It was a very nice house and enjoyed the great view from upstairs. G Family 04/2005.

We came to this beautiful house to celebrate my 50th birthday. This was a perfect beginning as I enter a new decade. My family came - parents, children and grandchildren. A perfect house and being with my family made it more perfect. The only problem was that we never wanted to leave to explore Maui! Each day we became more and more relaxed. We are leaving sadly, but with wonderful memories. The house is exquisite, and the family is ready to book again. Thanks to Pam and Yvonne for all their help. We are already planning next year's return. DG. 03/2005

Our experience of your concierge, Yvonne, assisting us was wonderful and very informative. She answered all our responses and gave us full detail on all tours. It was of great help! Pam greeted us at the estates, she was very friendly and informative. She had the house described right, it was all we expected and very efficient for our vacation. All services we received were wonderful, including the housekeeping, pre-delivered groceries and greeting. All day trips that we scheduled were quite top-notch. We really enjoyed all. The kids loved snorkeling, going to Lanai and the luau, which was a lot of fun and the food was great. We also had some very good dinners out at local restaurants. The L. Family, 03/2005

Arrived Feb. 19th, leaving Feb. 26th. Weather was fantastic, no rain in the entire week. Came here to celebrate 30th anniversary & Karen's birthday. The house was beyond our expectations. We were active all week and the view from this house was breathless. Randy and Karen are from upstate New York, where we are returning to snow and below freezing weather (not good). Colleen, Cory & Eva are from Boston area and made our vacation complete by joining us. We usually plan a family vacation every 2 years and, for the first time, think we want to return to a place we have been. Thank you for a chance to enjoy life at this little piece of heaven. Luther Family 02/2005

We arrived on the 8th and are leaving today the 18th. We can't say just how much we enjoyed the house. Watching the whales spout and the sun set has been a solid foundation for a relaxing week. We are sad to have to leave. B Family 02/2005.

I'm sorry it has taken me this long to write to you. I've wanted to write and thank you; and your wonderful staff for making our family belated Christmas holidays magical.We had the best time. And I believe it was due in a big way to you and your staff. Matteo was wonderful. His wife a delight. In fact we have invited them to come and visit us in Scottsdale. Again, thanks for everything. We look forward to renting again from you. Many blessing to you and your wonderful staff. Anyone who rents from you or has an occasion to know your firm is lucky. B.D. Family 01/2005

I am very happy, happy, happy. Your house is really nice.

My family and I so enjoyed our stay this summer at the Wailea Estate. It was a gorgeous home and an unforgettable trip. We would like to return to Hawaii next summer! My 40th is in June - dum, dum, dum! - and we'd like to try Oahu this time. We so loved the home we stayed in on Maui. It was gorgeous and similarly outfitted as ours in Raleigh. The services provided by you and your co-workers were professional, timely - again, wonderful! Our experience could not have been any better. We were so pleased with our experience with Tropical Villas that we wished you had locations on all the islands! S. Williamson 10/2004

Our accommodation was absolutely fairly represented. The reservation process was very professional, knowledgeable, and prompt. The Wailea Sunset Estate is a gorgeous home, very much worth the rental payment. We do not have any suggested improvements. The owners have a beautiful home, full of every possible amenity. Yvonne the Concierge is awesome. We thank the homeowners for sharing their lovely home with us! The W. Family 06/2004.

The B. family of Inveshaugh arrived 05/2004, from Ontario Canada! We swam, ate local foods, road trips, soaked up the sun, and all the other fun vacation stuff! What a wonderful house this is. Great stone work, and the tile mosaics are fabulous. I hope we can come back some day. The B. Family 05/2004.

What an incredibly beautiful house in Paradise! We enjoyed our vacation and are very sad to leave. E Family 03/2004.

We can't thank you enough for creating such a perfect place and choosing to share it with others. It is such a big house...you won't mind if we stay will you? B Family 03/2004.

DD & MH (back again for a 2nd visit in 4 months!) Thanks again for a perfect vacation. Every day was a treat and the whale watching couldn't have been better. 02/2004.

Your home is a perfect joy! T & P Craft 11/2003.

This is our 8th visit to Maui, and none have compared to this wonderful visit. Your home is perfect and blessed is how we feel for getting to stay here. We look forward to our next (repeat) visit in 02/2004 (to your home). Thank you! DD & MH, 10/2003.
