The intimate, gated community of vacation homes takes full advantage of its location in Wailea, a former fishing village between Kihei and Makena on the southwest coast of Maui. The area is known for beautiful sunshine, clean crescent-shaped beaches, high-end shopping and championship-caliber golf courses. Wailea Beach Villas match the environment in elevated fashion, blurring the lines between private ownership and resort-style living. The arrangement combines extravagance with ease and accessibility in a tropical paradise.

This exclusive enclave curates 98 units among nine buildings on nearly 11 acres. The grounds are a spectacular, but serene collection of palm trees, water features and walkways with immaculate garden landscaping.

Prices generally run from $3 million to $12 million. Nearly 70 units are in the Penthouse Building, a name inspired by the private elevators that travel between front-door entrances and an underground parking garage. Five different floor plans are available (up to 3,400 square feet) with sweeping views of Wailea Beach, mostly unobstructed from the third floor up.

You’re even closer to the water with a choice of two or three-story villas (up to 4,200 square feet) near the beachfront. Each home has its own parking garage with plunge pools on the ground level. The location offers immediate access via private gate to sand, water and the paved Wailea Beach Path, which connects beaches, parks and resorts within a two-mile stretch. You’ll soon see why morning strolls are part of the culture. Wake up early and catch the sunrise for memories to cherish forever.

Owners can live in paradise all year long or rent out units through a revenue sharing plan with Destination Residencies Wailea/Destination by Hyatt. It’s not uncommon for condos to fetch more than $2,000 per night.

Anyone staying on property can maximize their stay with front desk, concierge and housekeeping services. Spend time at the fitness center or take a dip in one of two swimming pools, including an adults-only lagoon. Stretch out with a private yoga session and book a massage inside your residence or the oceanside hale. Arrangements are possible to snorkel among the reef or paddle a canoe in the same blue waters that sea turtles and manta rays call home.

The Shops at Wailea is a neighboring outdoor plaza with 80 businesses composed of boutiques, restaurants, bars and art galleries. Browse casual gift shops or luxury brands like Gucci and Louis Vuitton. It’s easy to absorb the social energy, whether sipping on a beer at the Waikiki Brewing Company, enjoying a cocktail at Tommy Bahama or sitting down for dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about a ride home. Just walk back and return to your residence through a private gate.
