"Dear Yvonne, This is long overdue! Thank you for ALL you did to make our family visit to Maui so perfect! You went out of your way to make boat reservations at the last minute, golfing tee times for many at the various places and even aranging for the beds to be changed and roll-aways to be delivered. Everything was done so effeciently and promptly. Needless to say we had a vacation of a life time! We will be talking about it for years." 01/2010
"I can't thank you enough for all you did for us. I hope our paths cross again sometime - you are very special to making a trip so successful!" Ann H. and Family. 01/2010
Recent Wailea Resort-Area Villa Guest: "Excellent service. Someone was available to assist in any way possible. Perfect. Better then staying at a hotel any time. If we return to Maui we will contact your agency first. Thank you." The M Family. 06/2009
"What a beautiful condo! Everything was better than expected. We had wonderful weather, the swimming pools, grounds and beach were magnificent. Tropical Villa Vacations and Yvonne are a class act! Leaving your property in their hands - no one could ask for anything more! Their attention to detail prior to renting was just as outstanding as during our stay. We celebrated a 50th birthday, our 23 year old niece's return to her birth place, our son's sr. trip with a friend and our grandchildren's 1st trip to the beach. What a lovely time. Thank you for sharing!" The B Family. 06/2009
It was awesome here! It was my first time to Hawaii. The sunsets were great, the water was warm. (I enjoyed the pool too though.) I love Hawaii! The J Family Denver, CO, 03/2018
This was a very memorable time for our family as we celebrated our granddaughter’s 1st year and grandpa’s 70th birthday. This place is beautiful and we enjoyed the fantastic view and the comfort inside. Looking forward to many more trips to Hawaii in the next few years. The Clarkson Family, 12/2017
Aloha and Mahalo! Maui was a perfect getaway for our family. The amenities of the villa are top-notch. The decor looks like the folks from HGTV have stopped by villa 508. We made so many wonderful memories this past week. The beauty of the island is breathtaking. We will miss our morning coffee and breakfasts on the lanai. We wish time off from work could be longer. Until next time… The S Family Lancaster, PA, 11/2017
Thank you so much for opening up your beautiful home for others to enjoy. The views are spectacular, the location is very convenient and your villa was loaded with all the comforts of home. We have been to Maui a few times and this was definitely our best experience. We will be returning on our next trip to Maui in June and look forward to staying here again. Thanks. The M Family from Prosper, TX, 12/2016
Would definitely go back

Beautiful condo. Pictures represented very well. Beautiful grounds and friendly staff. Condo is very well stocked...kitchen, baths. Some construction going on but really didn't notice much. Workers friendly and courteous. The Y Family, 10/2016
Sandy surf 508
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Had an absolutely fabulous family vacation at Sandy Surf. It is a beautiful, clean condominium. The view is to die for. The property is also beautiful. The only complaint I have about the property is lack of a restroom by the adult pool/ beach. We will be back! The D Family, 09/2016
We are so sad to have to leave this beautiful place. The condo and property are beautiful. We have been to Maui several times, but always stayed in hotels. From now on, we will be coming here. Thank you for opening your home to others. It is absolutely fabulous! The B Family, San Antonio, TX, 09/2016
One of our Favorite Vacations!

We have rented several condos over the years in the Wailea Beach Villas. The view from this condo is absolutely breathtaking! My husband and I and three college age guys had plenty of space to relax and enjoy the amazing view. We cooked most of our meals in the condo and the owners have done a great job of supplying everything needed. Love the proximity to the mall to get ice cream and shop in the evenings. And the staff at the front desk, conceirge desk, and beachside were accomodating and friendly. We plan on going back! Mahalo. The R Family, 08/2016
Our family vacation of 6 people, whole heartedly agree that Maui is the most amazingly beautiful and fun place we have EVER visited! Well worth the LONG distance air travel! We also agree that your Penthouse K-508 Sandy Surf exceeds all expectations in every way possible! Stunning views, gorgeous layout, top notch concierge services and greeters ~ so friendly and accommodating! We leave with smiles on our faces and happy hearts! We will be returning! Hopefully many times over the years. Thank you, Mahalo, from our family! Perfection! Heaven! Glorious! The B Family, 06/2016
Please pass along our many thanks to to everyone that made our trip to Maui a perfect family vacation!! Yvonne, Marsha, Randy - everyone was so accommodating and please let the owners know how beautiful their home is!! We are on our way to the airport now and are sad to leave but are absolutely 100% happy with our vacation - Mahalo! The O Family, Ohio. 05/2016
I've rented several nice properties over the years, but I've never seen my family so impressed as they were with this one. "How did you find this?" They kept asking. Bring your binoculars to watch the whales from the patio. If you don't want to use their incredible, very well-stocked kitchen, don't go out to eat. Order takeout and enjoy it from the balcony. This is one of the finest properties I've ever rented. Most importantly, though, is the attention to the needs of a traveler, and the "extras" around the house: batteries; games; movies; umbrellas; towels for the beach; extra towels for the Road to Hana; several coolers to pack a picnic; six robes (we took a family picture to prove it); bidets with heated toilet seats (that one never seems to get marketed!); better grill and grilling equipment than I own myself; private elevator; extremely convenient parking spot; laundry stuff; office equipment. 05/2016
Wailea Beach Villas is beautifully maintained and centrally located in the Wailea section of Maui. Sandy Surf (K508) was particularly beautiful with absolutely stunning views. The villa is exceptionally well equipped with anything you could need or want. The D Family, 04/2016
Our family has been to Hawaii before, but it was another amazing adventure. I’ve found myself spending half the the day just looking out the balcony! The B Family, 03/2016
It's in a wonderful location. I've rented probably over twenty different properties over the years for family vacations. Usually high end stuff, as the family can only rarely take off together. This is easily one of the two best I've ever been in. And easily the greatest deck and living room I've ever rented.The C Family, 03/2016
Exceptional! We appreciate the orientation. Definitely saved us time in searching for things. The villa is beautiful and everything was more than we expected. Comfortable and beautiful location. We would consider coming back and stay again. The L Family, 01/206
We want to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our entire family. We are so fortunate to have this be our 5th year in your condo. Each year has been so very special thanks to both of you. Opening the door always gives us feelings of comfort, warmth and complete joy! We spend a lot of time on the lanai - enjoying the amazing view, the sunsets and one of the family favorites, whale watching! We have left you a little gift that will add to the whale watching. Thank you from all of us and for all of the wonderful memories! The F & K Families, 03/2015
Aloha! Thank you for the use of your beautiful home. Your place made our holiday first class! Thank you! The K Family, 01/2015
Thank you so much for this wonderful villa. Everything was perfect. Beautiful furnishings - every detail attended to, your place made our Maui trip truly spectacular. We loved the view both day and night! Wailea Beach is right here. We never left Wailea Beach for any other place. Aloha Oe! The W, M and P Families. 01/2015
Wow!! We really set the bar high on our first trip to Maui - for Christmas! Your villa is gorgeous and we could not have asked for anything more comfortable. Of course we started and ended each day on the lanai where the ocean and sunset views are spectacular! Thank you for letting us be the stewards of your home for the last 10 days. Maui has grown on us!! We’ll be back!! The L Family, Arlington Heights, Illinois. 12/2014
Wonderful place to stay! Memories of a lifetime. The O Family. 09/2014
We cannot thank you enough for the magical time we had in your piece of paradise. We are forever grateful to you all. We had such an amazing, relaxing, incredible adventure. Your home was so comfortable and beautiful, just perfect. We so enjoyed the beach below and exploring the entire island. From Hana to Honokohau Bay, to surfing at Ho’okipa, the boys rode some fun waves and the waterfalls on the road to Hana were breathtaking. Thank you so much. Our love and gratitude, The S Family, 09/2014
Thank you for allowing our family to enjoy your spectacular condo for a wonderful 2 week family vacation. We love the breezeway that occurs when both sets of sliding doors are open. We adore the view out front and out back. The set up in the main room is perfect… Had a wonderful dinner at the inside table and many spectacular dinners at the outside table on the balcony. Maui is a special place and was made that much better with these accommodations. The G Family, 01/2014
Fabulous condo, stunning setting, fun filled activities - loved every second! Mahalo, the A Family. 04/2013
Magnificent, peaceful, beautiful decor and unbelievable views! The perfect place to vacations with three generations of fabulous women (Grandma+Mother+Daughterx2). The trip of a life time for 6 special women! Thank you! The W Family, 10/2012
What a lovely home away from home! Gorgeous scener from every window. Lavish but comfortable. We'll be back! Aloha to Tropical Villa Vacations and to the owners of the Sandy Surf for the lovely ambience of this villa. The C Family, 10/2012
We have enjoyed a bit of heaven in this lovely home. Six lucky women were able to enjoy each other's company in a stress-free enviroment. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. We hope to return soon and often! The C Family, 10/2012
What a beautiful place! We all came to Maui to celebrate a 60th birthday and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful condo with such spectacular views. Many thanks to Yvonne for all her help organizing our day trips. Having a concierge was the icing on the cake. She was fabulous! Our children and grandchildren will remember this trip for a very long time! The P Family, 05/2012
Our second year in this wonderful condo. Both years we felt as if we came home! Enjoyed our view, our spacious rooms, our entire experience! We were fortunate to be able to share this time with our children and grandchildren - what amazing memories. The F Family, 02/2012
We had an amazing time on our first family vacation! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and the beautiful accommodations. The villas location on the top level allowed us to have a beautiful view of the sunset each day and front row seats for the outstanding New Year and Fireworks show! Thank you once again, this place truly is heaven on earth! The F Family, 01/2012.
"I am easily satisfied with the very best!" Mahalo and Mele Kalikimaka, The S Party, 12/2011. P.S. Most excellent snorkeling/whale watching with Captain Steve (Lahaina).
Awesome place! Wish we didn't have to go back to real life. Would totally stay here again! The L Family, 07/2011
We enjoyed our stay in this fabulous unit. The view and decor is perfect. Hope to be back. The M Family, 06/2011
Wow! Best unit in the whole place! Every minute was unbelievable! Thank you! The F Family, 04/2011
Coming from Ft. Lauderdale, Fl and Bend, Or, we had a great time visiting this wonderful condo! The view and weather was spectacular, and we enjoyed surfing, windsurfing and snorkeling the reef off to the right of the beach was the best one we saw! We all had a great vacation and enjoyed our family visit to Hawaii! The W Family, 04/2011.
As it was our family's second time staying at the villas, we had very high expectations for this year. And this place went above an beyond those expectations! K508 is tastefully decorated but yet very comfortable and low maintenance. Due to being at the top and centre of the building, we had a phenomenal view and seeing the whales every morning became practically routine, which is outstanding! The service was also incredible and that made us feel very much at home, even though it's 30 degrees colder in our real home! Thank you, The B Family, 04/2011
Thank you so much. We loved our visit here. Place is beautiful. We had an amazing time. The F Family, 02/2011
Thank you for the lovely stay! And the loveliest view in all of Maui! The L Family, 01/2011.
Great place, tastefully decorated and a wonderful view! We all had a splendid time and hope to come back soon. The D Family, 12/2010.
First of all, to gather the family from London, Singapore, Boca and Oahu is no easy feat. Finding this place made it all worthwhile. We had a fabulous time and we will never forget it. The B Family 06/2010.
The pictures did not due the villa justice, much nicer. The 20 ft wall of glass disappears into the wall making the outdoor kitchen and deck part of the house. Great for cocktails and meals. Plenty of room for our family of 6 to relax and enjoy. Easy walk to several snorkeling spots every morning before breakfast. Would definitely return. Charlie 05/2010
Had a fantastic time here. What beautiful sights of whales, the surf, the other islands. The decor was perfect, classy and yet comfortable. We've left some books here that we enjoyed on the beach. Thank you for a great memory! A Family 02/09
