Wonderful Holiday and Family Catch Up! The R Family 04/2017
What a gorgeous place. We had a wonderful time. Beautiful modern decor. Thank you for sharing your home. This was a vacation we will remember forever. The view was majestic! The C Party, 02/2017
Wow! What a vacation! So much to do but yet such a great place to just sit and relax. The villa is spectacular and so comfortable. I have not relaxed like this in a long time. Thank you for the memories we will have for a lifetime. The M Family, 02/2017
An amazing place to bring my 3 children and spouses for a “fabulous” family vacation. The home and patio were incredible and we so enjoyed it all; cocktails and a barbeque dinner on the deck and a special treat; seranading by the luau singers and dancers on the Marriott deck. Such fun!!! Snorkeling, paddle boarding, swimming in the ocean and of course, enjoying the pool. Thank you for letting us enjoy this glorious home! The D Family, 10/2016
Thank you for sharing your beautiful Hale with us. We had a wonderful time. This place is beautifully appointed and I love the artwork. Spectacular view as well. Walking everyday and spending the day at the beach and pool makes this stay a true vacation and not a trip. We are very appreciative of your generosity. The P Family, 08/2016
Paradise at it's Best
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
So far we have rented homes in Laguna Beach, CA, La Jolla, CA and now our second time at Wailea Beach Villas. All were gorgeous, but Mer Et Soleil K408 was beyond what we expected!
As you first walk in, you will notice that the Villa looks exactly like the pictures, and all the furnishings appear brand new. All the bedrooms were as described, and our family of 7 adults were extremely comfortable. The bathrooms were gorgeous, and they had everything you would need which included beautiful toiletries. You can tell a lot of thought went into all the little extras.
Mer Et Soleil was also absolutely immaculate! I have never stayed in a home as ultra clean as this Villa, and I am a clean freak. Throughout the entire home everything was pristine.
The location is perfect, just a quick walk down to the beach where the helpful staff are waiting to set out lounge chair and umbrellas. Just down the elevator from the K408, a few steps will take you to the gym and family pool. There is also an infinity adult pool by the beach, where you will be able to take gorgeous sunset pictures.
Just down the elevator and across the street are the Shops at Wailea. What a fun place to shop or eat, with many stores and boutiques from luxury to mainstream. There is also a grocery store which has fresh produce and ready-made meals. The best part of the shops were the Wednesday free concerts. While we were there, we were lucky enough to see HAPA! That was a nice surprise to add to our already perfect vacation.
At the end of our stay, there was a potentially large storm coming to Maui. The staff with Wailea Beach Villa and Tropical Villa Vacation was wonderful alerting us to the potential dangers and giving us instructions in case we should need them. They even brought up to our Villa a case of 2 liter bottles of water. I really appreciated how they gave us personal attention. Luckily the storm went around Maui, and we had beautiful days all week. Hopefully one day we will be able to stay in this beautiful Villas again! The G Family,08/2016
We all have had the best time together in your beautiful home! Thanks so much for letting us share it together, many fond memories. The P Family, 08/2016
We had the best time. Love, The D Family, 04/2016
Thank you so much! Your house was absolutely amazing, comfortable penthouse to stay while visiting on Maui. We had a wonderful time, everything in your home was so beautiful and comfortable, the staff was so accommodating and nice. We hope you enjoy the small gift as a token of our appreciation. Mahalo! The P and A Families, 06/2015
Thank you for sharing your beautiful penthouse with us. What impeccable attention to detail and comfort! We loved the lanai for breakfast and sunsets. We snorkeled every day at one of the many nearby and accessible beaches. Mahalo! The H Family, 04/2015
Loved your beautiful home! Fabulous! Hope to return! The S Family, 03/2015
We loved our stay in Mer et Soleil. It was a great experience in the resort and the villa was lovely. Access to everything and a great, quiet spot to relax. A view to remember always. The M Family, 02/2015
Mer et Soleil - Sun and Sea - No Ka Oi! Thank you for sharing your perfect place in the Valley Isle! We have spent much time in the Wailea area including pre-Wailea Beach Villas, Four Season and Grand Wailea. Wailea Beach Villas are such a wonderful addition and K408 is so special... beautiful inside and out. What a view! Mahalo and much Aloha! The L Family, 12/2014
Thanks for an amazing vacation location. Had a great time...lots of great memories. The O Family, 11/2013.
Thanks for all the memories Hawaii! We'll be back soon. The P Ohana, 08/2013.
Can't complain. A flawless vacation for me and my best friend. Always does the trick when in need of some R & R. The K Party, 04/2013.
This truly was an OMG vacation! From watching whales from the balcony in the morning to spectacular sunsets in the evening, it was a never-ending display of nature at its finest! The "Road to Hana" is a must. Be prepared for a full day of driving nail-biting roads, but well worth the effort. Spectacular views enhanced with planning lunch while on the road. Stop at the "Halfway to Hana" stop for a picnic. The banana bread is excellent and well worth the $6.50. The lunch and dinners supplied us with ample fish selections, including Mama's Fish House, Nick's Lahaina Grill and Lonhgi's. A casual stroll down to the pools and beaches can be extended to a morning walk or run to work off the delicious food! But the best part was spending time together and providing life time memories! The C, K and S Families, 02/2013.
The N Family think this pad is the real bomb! Many mahalos! The N Family, 11/2012
This was the best time ever in Maui. My three and a half week stay was not long enough. Many friends and family were able to enjoy this magnificent place. We even used the Baby Grand! It is truly paradise to enjoy. Thank you for having this to share with others. Always Maui, The P Family, 10/2012
Our expectations were exceeded! We had a wonderful time relaxing with family and enjoying your lovely home. You have thought of everything. The only downside is that it is so wonderful here that we were reluctant to leave to explore elsewhere. We were so lucky to have found this beautiful place. Thanks for sharing. The C Family, 06/2012.
Thanks so much for having us at your beautiful home. Wonderful condo to spend with family and friends. We enjoyed the area, sightseeing and golf. Would to return someday. The C Family, 05/2012
What a view! I couldn't stop looking at it. Fabulous condo, so well-furnished and appointed. A terrific spot for a relaxing week with good friends. The A Party, 05/2012.
We had a wonderful time watching for whales and enjoying the beautiful view. Thank you for sharing your Hawaii home with us. We love Maui and this condo was a wonderful place to call home during our two weeks. The W Family, 04/2012
Lovely home, lovely view. The lanai was our favorite cocktail lounge with the finest view. Great location. Lots of whales this time of year. Beautiful sunsets! Mahalo! The M Family, 01/2012
We are most grateful for an incredible place to call home for 3 weeks. The staff at Tropical Villa Vacations have been absolutely superb. We look forward to returning. Mahalo! The M Family, 01/2012.
From the moment we began working with Deborah (Reservations Manager) over one year ago, your people have been absolutely outstanding. We own a Company and know full well how challenging it can be to have staff who truly understand and emulate your vision on a day-to-day vision. I can promise you, our experience with everyone at Tropical Villa Vacations has exceeded our expectations. (Yes, we are rather fussy...!!). We now feel like we are speaking with friends - people who really care about assisting with our vacation. We commend you on your hiring of such caring, passionate, kind and knowledgeable people. We have other choices we could make for our vacation - but rest assured, those choices will only involve working with Tropical Villa Vacations. I thank you very much for allowing us this opportunity to express our sincere "Thanks" to you, and to your (Tropical Villa Vacations) Team.T & B (M Family) 01/2012
It's been magical - an absolute fantasy come true! Beautiful accommodations, every need taken care of and Yvonne was incredible. Thanks (or should I say Mahalo) for the best Thanksgiving ever. I look forward to next year and I will always use Tropical Villa Vacations. You guys Rock! The T Family, 11/2011
The accommodation was represented to us was even better than expected upon arrival! It was incredible from start to finish thank you all! The unit is absolutely amazing! We will rave about to everyone and look forward to returning. The B Family, 09/2011
May I take this opportunity to thank you for a wonderfully presented, pristine clean, completely equipped beautiful condo. We had the most beautiful time at K408! Memories that will be cherished forever. Kindest regards to you and your time for the fabulous work you do at Wailea Beach Villas. The B Family, 09/2011
Thank you for an absolutely fabulous time in paradise. K408 was a perfect reunion spot for our two families, one from Austin, Texas and one from Sydney, Australia. What a magical place to reconnect with dear friends after not seeing each other for 5 years. The villa was immaculate, the view breathtaking, the beach an amazing playground for all of us. Memories of a lifetime were made. Will look forward to reconvening here again! The B and S Famiies, 09/2011.
Thank you for a wonderful week in paradise. Our family of 5 celebrated our twins 18th birthday here. The condo was great! So many things to enjoy and plenty of space to relax. The beach was beautiful! We also ziplined, took a bike ride down Haleakala, drove the Road to Hana and beyond! The B Family, 07/2011
Thank you for sharing your villa with us. It was awesome. We had family in K508 and K308 for a total of 20 people. We all had a wonderful time! We will be back, can't wait. The A Family, 06/2011
The villas are fantastic! K408 is gorgeous and stocked with loads of fun stuff! The bedrooms and bathrooms were luxurious, the kitchen was spectacular and we loved having breakfast and coffee on the lanai. We did so many fun activities (like biking down a volcano and ziplining) and had some great meals. The best part though...the beach! Beautiful! Thanks for a great family vacation. My Dad would have loved it! The B Family, 06/2011.
Mahalo! We came to celebrate our dad's 60th bday and had the most amazing time! The attention to detail in this condo is magnificent...We had everything we needed. We hope our good times out on the lanai are infectious and will be felt by all future visitors. We are already talking about making this a tradition. Love, The M. Family, 05/2011
What a beautiful view and amazing house! My mother, sister, husband, son and myself really enjoyed it. We celebrated Mother's Day and our 3rd wedding anniversary! We will definitely come back. The K Family, 05/2011

An absolutely gorgeous suite loaded and equipped with more than we could have imagined. Thank you for sharing your home with us and thank you for all the thoughtfulness... board games, beach chairs and umbrellas, walkie-talkies, iPod sound system!

Wow! Thank you so much. It was divine! The G and F Families, 10/2010
Fantastic - We will probably return. The stay was everything that we had hoped for, and more. We have stayed in the area previously, and so were somewhat familiar with the property when we found the listing on-line. However, the accomodations service far exceeded our expections. I have already higly recommended this rental to a colleague.

Amazing! I loved it here and it's only been the first day. Being a kid, I usually sleep on the couch but I got my own bed! Great place for a family vacation. Kia, 07/2010

What an unbeleiveable property. Great views, a great project, convenient location. If you have a family and want to have all the conveniences of home in a beatiful setting- this is the spot for you! Only downside I can think of is that they don't deliver mai tais to the beach. I can' think of anything else... Hillsborough, CA, 08/2009
Absolutely perfect! Even the "little ambient noise" from the pool would not spoil this heavenly place. Whales were every where - weather fine. Every detail handled. Aloha! The Y Family 03/2009

Just thought I would share with all of you (Tropical Villa Vacations employees)that the E. Family (arrived 08/05/07) thinks we are FABULOUS!! He commented how great our team is and really appreciates everything we have done in preparing for their visit. They love K408 Mer Et Soleil and are now ready to fully unpack and enjoy their Maui vacation! He wanted me to make sure to thank everyone.
I want you to know how much we appreciated your attention to detail when we were in Maui. The Wailea Beach Villa Mer Et Soleil K408 was fantastic beyond our expectations. We loved our stay. We were so comfortable and pampered by every amenity. The piano was great fun. We appreciated the grounds and pools as well as the central location for activities and dining. We had so much fun. I am happy to report that our vacation was spectacular in every way!!! The condo was amazing. It accommodated us perfectly with every amenity attended to. We couldn't have been happier with the home. The unit manager, Marsha was most accommodating with every need. Mer Et Soleil is fantastic - roomy and comfortable. Our son did fine on the sofa bed. We would love to come again. B. Family 06/2007.
