Rave Reviews From Our Satisfied Guests

Absolutely Amazing!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The sunset estate and bungalow is a stunning set of properties and worked perfectly for our family vacation (10 adults, 7 children). As the name suggests, you are treated to beautiful sunsets each evening that can be enjoyed on a huge patio complete with a pool. Being on the oceanfront, we were even lucky enough to have a couple sea turtles visit the beach in front of the house. The property managers were extremely helpful leading up to the trip and during our stay (offered to plan activities, help with rentals, etc.). The property managers also recommended a private chef (they provided a list; we selected Chef John) who prepared a fantastic surf & turf dinner for our group. We would highly recommend this property! The R Family, 07/2017

Staying here is like staying in a high end hotel - without all the people. We booked this bungalow to celebrate husband’s birthday and our anniversary. It’s the perfect home base for a Maui trip. We had the most amazing relaxing time here - the location made it hard to leave. We loved this home and I suspect we’ll be back! The L Family, 06/2017

Upscale hotel living in a private home...
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
What an amazing place to spend time in your own private paradise! The house is decorated beautifully and the pictures are almost accurate - it's actually cuter and cozier than it looks in the photos. The first day we were very alarmed as large pods were being "thrown" at the house. I decided that the house was infested with invisible monkeys. After a bit of research, we learned the invisible monkeys were actually a monkeypod tree. You'll see large pods littering the deck - break one open and smell it. It's a woodsy smell of mesquite and anise. We made a point to watch every sunset at the house. Even though there are houses on either side, it feels very private. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and there's fantastic snorkeling right in front of the house (assuming the water is clear). We enjoyed the house so much that we stayed in far more than we planned. If you're looking for a private, secluded ocean paradise, look no further. I would absolutely stay here again. The T Family, 05/2017

Aloha, This was our first stay at WSB and we enjoyed every minute of it! We really appreciate how well appointed the house is. We also want to thank Randy for all his help during our stay - Mahalo! We are looking forward to our next visit! The A Family, 05/2017

We came and were greeted by a breaching whale. Torrential rains for 2 days then the calm swimming/ snorkeling waters in front of the bungalow turned to a surfers dream where surfing normally doesn't exist. Enjoyed watching whales, dolphins and surfers from the deck. Great place & excellent adventure.
This time around was whole new experience from the last time we were here in October 2011.
Time to go home and start saving for the return trip back, someday. The A and P Families. 03/2017

Another great Christmas and New Years! The S Family, 01/2017

Yet another wonderful stay at WSB. We love it here! Mahalo and Hui Ho! The C Family, 12/2016

Another wonderful time at the bungalow! This time celebrating my 25th birthday, the weather was perfect and the water crystal clear! We always look forward to staying at this slice of paradise and it never disappoints. We'll be counting down the days until next October! Mahalo and cheers, the B Family, 11/2016

Fantastic 5 nights in the cottage, will definitely be back and for longer next time!!! The M Family, 09/2016

We had a great time in this house and can’t wait to come back soon. This is our second time here and we absolutly love it. The O Family, 08/2016

Had a fabulous & relaxing holiday in this beautiful cottage. Sea & sunsets perfect. H & R Families, New Zealand, 06/2016

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for all of your help with reservations during our stay in Maui at the Sunset Bungalow. The Bungalow was magical…great location, beautiful grounds, perfect size for the two of us and everything we could need supplied. A+++++ We had a wonderful time golfing at the Wailea Emerald Course and had a very yummy dinner at Mama’s Fish House. The early reservation time worked out perfectly! We look forward to coming back very soon! Mahalo! Ellen, 05/2016

What a magical "bungalow". Loved everything about it. Absolutely everything you need is provided! Can't wait to return! The D's, Sammish, WA 04/2016

Wailea Sunset Bungalow
★★★★★
My husband and I spent more than a week at WSB with our teenage daughter and her friend. While there is only one bath, there are three words to describe this place: location, location, location! Waterfront, in Wailea, but really a world away as it is so private. Perfectly equipped, attractively decorated, we only wish we could have stayed longer! The W Family, Woodside, CA. 04/2016

Perfect spot, adorable bungalow, whales, walks, bike rides, swims and rest. We'll be back! Mahalo, The M Family, 04/2016

Love this little bungalow. Wonderful relaxing trip and bonus - the turtles! This place is so great. The A's, 03/2016

Love the remodel Third time here, it is always great! Lewis & Cyndy, Vancouver, WA. 03/2016

Aloha Yvonne, (Tropical Villa Vacations Concierge) So sorry I missed you when you dropped by this afternoon. When we returned from our walk, my mom and dad said “we had the most delightful visit from Yvonne!”. They were so touched and charmed by your concern, as are Max and I. Thank you! My mom’s unfortunate accident/injury has not in any way diminished our devotion to this property (both bungalow and estate). We can only hope that we are able return again and again and again. Please convey our gratitude to the property owners, along with the hope that they continue to offer this amazing property on a rental basis. It is truly both singular and spectacular, and we love it. We will never again be able to enjoy Maui from a hotel room, no matter how grand. We are forever spoiled by the cherished time we’ve been able to spend here. Aloha nui, Dana,02/2016

Thanks. Mahalo for another great vacation! We really like the upgrade kitchen, etc. Love this place and looking forward to returning again. Mahalo & Aloha, The S Family 1/2016

So often the best locations are difficult or impractical for small parties. The Sunset Bungalow is the answer. An amazing property with a great little two bedroom bungalow nested in a group of beautiful homes you wonder why anyone would choose a condo or townhome. The back deck is fantastic for breakfast and dinner with unforgettable sunsets every night. A short walk to Polo Beach for the kids and easy enough to sneak back for lunch or snacks. Very private! The D Family, 05/2015

We love the house and had the best time!! Thank you for all the thoughtful touches - fully stocked kitchen, bathroom and beach items. We were here for 3 weeks and will miss the amazing sunsets and ocean view! The B Family, Lafayette, CA, 04/2015

Thank you for providing the perfect home for us to escape & relax before & after our wedding! This beautiful place kept us zen all week! Will recommend & will return! All the best, The B Family, Chicago. 03/2015

What an amazing visit we had here at the Bungalow! Waking up to the sound of the waves and wind and watching a perfect sunset every evening - couldn't ask for anything more! The R Family, Santa Rosa, CA 03/2015

Everything is going really well and we just love the bungalow! Definitely seeing us come back here! Best place we have stayed in all of Hawaii. And we have stayed at the Kea Lani and the Hyatt in Kauaii and the Mauna Lona Bay in the Big Island. The M Family, 02/2015

Oh how we love staying at WSB. We made friends with the birds. Watched a turtle snooze on the beach. Saw whales spouting and breaching. We toasted every sunset. Mahalo and a hui ho Karoline & Gary, Delta, BC Canada, 12/2014

Mahalo! Such a lovely & memorable trip for our family. Our 3 year old has declared this her "beach shack" and has told us to remember to come back. We certainly will be back soon. Thank you very much! With the warmest of regards, The H Family, 11/2014

Another fantastic Maui vacay in the books! I look forward to coming here every year and it never disappoints! The perfect mid-semester recharge I needed! I absolutely adore this property and waking up to the birds chirping and the waves crashing! Until next time :-) Mahalo y'all!! Cheers! The B Party, Seattle, WA & San Antonio, TX, 10/2014

Thank you for providing a lovely place for us to celebrate our 25th anniversary! A little piece of paradise! The W Family, 08/2014

Our trip to Maui was fantastic, mostly due to the spectacular Wailea Sunset Bungalow. This home was stocked with absolutely everything a person or group could ever need for a week, even a month. We enjoyed the famous Maui sunsets each night from this oceanfront gem of a property. We enjoyed breakfast every morning outside on the private deck with hot tub, looking out onto the ocean from our own personal paradise. The booking was seamless, the people at Tropical Villa Vacations even called to alert us to possible weather and just to make sure everything was ok with the rental. We will definitely be back, the Wailea Sunset Bungalow made our trip perfect. The G Family, 08/2014

We had an amazing time in this perfect little bungalow! Best vacation ever! We will be back! Aloha, The O Family, 07/2014

Thank you, you have an amazing house! The O Family, 07/2014

We loved it all of it. Thanks for all the small things - fresh ground coffee, Hawaiian bath stuff, beach toys for the kids, etc. The G Family, 06/2014

When we were booking this Bungalow we read all of the glowing reviews. We wondered how accurate might they be? After spending 10 nights here, it is apparent that the previous reviewers understated how great this piece of heaven is. We shall return. The C Party, San Carlos, CA, 05/2014

Aloha, What a little piece of paradise! We feel so blessed to have the opportunity to stay in the Bungalow for our honeymoon. We were also extremely thankful to get to spend time with you (owners) during our wedding festivities in Dallas. I had a whole itinerary lined up for Maui and we seriously only left 2 times the entire week! We will absolutely be back to the Bungalow for an anniversary trip! Love you guys, Emily & Lance B, Dallas TX, 06/2014

We stayed for 12 nights at the Wailea Sunset Bungalow. It was a tremendous way to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The views were fabulous and the bungalow was everything we could have wanted and more. Due to dietary restrictions we needed to prepare our own meals, and the full kitchen allowed us to do so very comfortably. Being right on the water we saw breaching whales every single day we were there! We loved the separation from the usual crowds, yet we were close enough to resorts not to feel too isolated. Property manager and concierge were very responsive to our needs and helped to make everything perfect for our vacation. The bungalow was as advertised. There were no surprises. Everything was as we expected. We have stayed at many upscale hotels on several of the islands, but this by far was our best experience staying in Hawaii. Most importantly, we would stay here again in a heartbeat! We can't wait to come back. The M Family, 03/2014

What a wonderful place to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary! Best surroundings and location to enjoy Maui. We saw breaching whales every day and beautiful sunsets. We hate to leave but will be back to mark many more special occasions. Thank you for providing the perfect place to create so many lasting and treasured memories….this is truly a piece of paradise! The M Party, Indianapolis, IN, 03/2014

Love this traditional Hawaiian Bungalow. Yes it's older but wow what a killer location. That's all I'm saying so this hidden gem stays that way. Tropical Villa Vacations is a first class operation. Many Thanks Yvonne. You're the best. See y'all in April. Cheers, J&L, 01/2014

Aloha and mahalo for the opportunity to enjoy this very special place on earth. Look forward to return. Great service from Yvonne & staff. Mahalo for a great Christmas! -The S Party, 01/2014

This is an idyllic spot and our stay was pure bliss. Mahalo and a hui hou. The C Family, 12/2013

What an amazing bungalow! Our new favorite place. We love the charm of the place and the lawn in back was our hangout in the mornings and evenings. We enjoyed White Rock Beach with all the supplies this place provided! My daughter will never forget celebrating her 22nd birthday here. Thanks for letting us enjoy this wonderful place. We hope to be back soon. Shoots! Mahalo, The B Family, 11/2013

We have had the most amazing vacation and stay at Wailea Sunset Bungalow. We were greeted by a turtle basking on the shore and the first of many breathtaking sunsets. The house could not have been better, we were provided with all the necessities that we had back at home, and then some. Tropical Villa Vacation's staff were incredibly helpful in assisting us with our itentary while on the island. We miss waking to the ocean, having dinner at sunset, and living in paradise. We will definitely return to the bungalow. The C Family, 10/2013

We have enjoyed our stay here tremendously. Our kids have run around, amazed by turtles swimming on shore each night and awed of the breathtaking sunsets. We will be back! Thank you for sharing this piece of paradise with us. The staff at Tropical Villa Vacations were fabulous in helping us live up a truly wonderful week here in Maui. The H Family, Chicago, IL, 01/2013

Thank you for sharing your most comfortable and charming Wailea Sunset Bungalow! We loved every minute of our relaxing time here - spectacular setting, views and sunset. Excellent service from Tropical Villa Vacations! We shall return. The R Family, Carmel, CA , 08/2013

Amazing view with an awesome sunset. Great snorkeling and lots of sea life right out back door. Exciting to swim with turtles "for free"! Certainly a place we would be back to visit with great beaches, food and activities. Thank you (Mahalo) for the accommodations. The W Family, 06/2013

Thank you for another wonderful vacation in a special little house. Nothing compares to a Wailea Sunset- or watching the waves from the hot tub. -The C Family, 06/2013

You've thought of everything! Thanks so much from Jeff and Fanya W and all the keikis! Los Angeles, CA and Cedar Falls, IA, 05/2013

A truly wonderful stay - the perfect location from which to enjoy all that Maui has to offer! We plan to be back! The L Family, United Kingdom, 04/2013

Absolute Paradise! What a gorgeous, relaxing and energizing place. We look forward to our next visit, which could never be soon enough. Thank you for sharing this amazing place! The R Family, 02/2013

Thanks again for a great week in paradise! See you again next year! The H Family, 02/2013

Another wonderful Christmas and a great way to start the New Year! We appreciate the opportunity to enjoy this piece of Paradise. Mahalo to all at Tropical Villa Vacations and Aloha! -The S Family, 01/2013

Our time at WSB has been wonderfully relaxing and so comfortable. There's no better place to experience the magic of Maui. Thanks again. A hui hou! The C Family, 12/2012

We are "loved rotten" by our aunt Ann!! Our second visit to this perfect paradise! We have "lived in the moment" for 10 glorious days with our most treasured loved ones! Today...life is perfect and for that, we are full of love, happiness and gratitude!! Kathy and Russ, 11/2012

A wonderful family time! Such a beautiful place to be together. The H Family, 11/2012

Thank you for sharing your lovely bungalow with us. We enjoyed our selves so much during our vacation.
The view is just amazing and we were graced with a lovely sunset every single day. We snorkeled right in front of the house, we watched sea turtles catching some waves and the monk seal came to rest several times. All great memories of our 10th wedding anniversary! Mahalo, The W-B Family, 09/2012

Thanks for providing such a wonderful and peaceful place. This was one of the best supplied, nicest rentals we've had in Hawaii or anywhere. Loved it. We will be back! The C Family, 09/2012

We had the best vacation ever. The view alone made our stay amazingly enjoyable. We watched beautiful sunsets every evening from the comfort of our own yard - no hotel hustle and bustle or picture taking tourists to worry about. We also loved watching the turtles play in the surf in the early evening just before sunset. We even snapped photos of them warming up on the rocks out front. We hope to be back next spring. Mahalo! The C Family 06/2012

What a beautiful location! We had such a fabulous time at your charming beach home. The weather was perfect! We both enjoyed just being able to watch the amazing sunsets and beautiful views. This is paradise!!! Mahalo, Elliot & Lynda A., Palm Springs, CA. 06/2012

We had a terrific time here in Maui with the real highlight being this wonderful place! We snorkeled with turtles and beautiful fish, surfed the waves and just enjoyed the house and garden. We wish to be back one day, and still find this place as it is now...Mahalo, The S Family, 05/2012

We had a great time in Maui. The bungalow met our every need. The kids loved it, great location. The house is stocked with everything you possibly would need. Great island, great house. Thanks, The M Family, 04/2012

What a wonderful place you have made here! Beautiful view, amazing sunsets and the whales were a daily show for us! We hate to leave our newly found "paradise" Thank you and Mahalo! Tim & Diane B, Ohio, 03/2012

Booked for twice as long next year! Sun, surf and whales, what more could you ask for? Leo and Cindy R., Vancouver, WA, 02/2012

The leaping whales, sea turtles up to shore feeding in the evening, a week of perfect sunny 80 degree weather, your comfortable, well-equipped bungalow in a convenient location near the shops and restaurants of luxurious resorts, the sound of surf and lovely shoreline view have set the scene for a spectacular vacation on Maui! The C Family, 01/2012

Another great Christmas and New Year at the Sunset Bungalow!! Can't wait to come back!! Mahalo, The S Family, 01/2012

We loved our stay in the bungalow. A location so idyllic, we hardly left the property. Mahalo and a hui hou! The C Family, 12/2011

What a beautiful location! It was worth every minute of traveling the long way from Germany. We enjoyed all the sun, snorkeling, body surfing, beaches and especially the nice house and garden. Mahalo! The G Family, 08/2011

Magical! The K Family, 08/2011

Such a beautiful bungalow and setting. We enjoyed every minute here and the sunsets were amazing. Everything was immaculate and we will definitely be back soon. The M Family, 08/2011

Thank you for sharing your beautiful bungalow. We enjoyed great dinners on the lanai, beautiful sunsets and best of all fires in the fire pitand S'mores! Although we bought firewood, the boys preferred using driftwood. We shared many challenging rounds of croquet. We loved the comfort of your vintage home with all the modern amenities and appreciate the well stocked kitchen. What a treat to be able to spread out and relax on this magical oceanfront property and create family memories that will last a lifetime! PS. For morning paper, a Latte or baked good - Cafe Ciao at the Fairmont Kea Lani opens at 6:30am. Mahalo The D Family, 07/2011

We couldn't have had a better vacation at Maui, the Bungalow is so lovely and the kids loved the grass lawn. We enjoyed so much sunset watching while having a barbecue dinner outside. It's a paradise away from home. Thank you for all the amenities provided and we will surely be back. The L Family, 07/2011

Thank you so much for making such a perfect place to stay in Maui! We felt so at home because you thought of everything! It was easy to be here, just the way Maui should feel! We will be back for sure! The F Family, 06/2011

We were here, in Maui, for my cousin's wedding & absolutely loved this bungalow. Everything was perfect and there was not a thing that you missed as far as extra amenities. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will be back! The S. Family, 05/2011

We all stayed here for a week to celebrate Chad and Kristine's wedding at the Olowalu Plantation House and to enjoy the beautiful weather. Our stay at the Wailea Sunset Bungalow exceeded our expectations ad we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Spent the majority of the time on the lanai, went snorkeling at Molokini and attended the Luau at the Marriott. We had a fantastic time and look forward to more trips in the future. The P. Family, 04/2011

Many thank you's for sharing your beautiful home with us! It was truly an oasis away from home - and we can't wait to visit again. The sunsets were breath taking - and seeing the whales will be something our family will always remember. Until we meet again! The P Family, 04/2011

Our trip was great! It was beautiful like always and the whales were amazing! The reefs were alive and full of color. The house was in perfect shape and had (like always) everything needed for a perfect get away! We can't wait for next years trip! The H Family, 02/2011

My husband and I just spent 6 nights at the cottage and it was magical. The pictures are very accurate, the lawn is huge and the view is spectacular. We felt like we were all alone. At night we'd leave the windows open and the breeze came through the house beautifully- all you could hear was birds and waves. No traffic, garbage trucks, or people. The little cottage is so well equipped, they've thought of everything!!! As an example, there are 3 coffee makers so you have one that suits you! It's really amazing how well this place has been maintained. It is really worth the money. The beach in front of the cottage is rough with lava rocks everywhere and it is difficult to entry the water- but not impossible. About 50 yards to the right is beautiful Polo Beach. You can walk on the rocks or on the road- it's about a 2-3 min walk. On Polo beach you can swim and even rent chairs, kayaks, surf boards, etc. on the beach from the Kea Lani. You can also enter the Wailea Beach Walk at this point- which is a great morning stroll. We walked to the Kea Lani one night (3 mins tops) to pick up a pizza and bring it back to the beach house...If you have a big group the adjacent house is also for rent from TVV and is BEAUTIFUL, new, and has a pool. The J Family, 02/2011

We had a great time here with our friends and we hope you do to. We went surfing, found shells, hung out and lots more! Have a good time! The N Family, 11/2010

Wow, what a great hide-a-way! Home is very private with great scenery and awesome snorkeling with the turtles out front. Sunsets were spectacular every night. There are many memories to take home with us. Our favorite part of the house is the bed; so, very comfortable! Suggestions for everyone book an in-villa massage through Trudy. It was great to have side-by-side massages in the living room with the windows open and hearing the ocean! The E Family, 10/2010

We just loved this place. It was everything and more than we had hoped. The internet pictures do not do it justice. The snorkeling at the lovely Palauea Beach just down the road was amazing, so many turtles and fish and even a mantra ray one day. Thank you for all the Maui guidebooks and the books on the history of Hawaii which we loved reading, they inspired us to take our 4 y.o.s to see Ulalena which was a great show. We hope to be back soon, and until then we have many amazing photos of the sunsets right outside the window at which to gaze and remember this lovely time. The B Family 10/2010

This really is a little piece of paradise. We were here for a wedding at the Grand and as beautiful as it is there, were were always happy to come back here. Very well equipped for cooking and entertaining. Enjoyed the turtles right here in our own backyard. Horseback riding at Mendez Ranch was the best we have ever done and of course, Spagos, is our favorite restaurant. We will be back. Mahalo, The G Family 06/2010

Mahalo! Maui is pretty neat! We enjoyed living in the cottage! Got many great photos. The most Aloha Place! Used the grill all but one night. Went to Mamas the one night we ate out. Our table here beats any dining establishment on the island (view, sunsets, noise all wonderful). Unforgettable. The B Family 06/2010

We enjoyed 8 beautiful nights in this sweet Bungalow. Everyone asked us why we were bringing our 4 and 5 year olds with us to Maui, but we wouldn't have had it any other way. They especially liked the huge yard and hammock. The view is breathtaking and we feel blessed to have stayed in such a well equipped, pretty place nestled between two min-mansions! The B Family 05/2010

This is our second time staying at the bungalow and it was just as great as the first time. Enjoyed kayaking with the whales, a huge pod of dolphins and turtles. Went to the Boo Boo Zoo this year... a must for animal lovers. Survived the tsunami from the Chilean earthquake which fortunately turned out to be very minor. Hope to return very soon. Mahalo! P.S. For bird-lovers, check out upcountry (Kula) to find Pueo, the Hawaiian short eared owl. Absolutely adorable. Jon and Andrea L. 03/2010

Had a great holiday. We all agree that this location is the best we had the pleasure to stay at. A true Hawaiian experience! Thank you for making this available to us. We look forward to returning. Aloha. The S. Family 01/2010

We started this year off as a celebration of my husbands retirement. We could not have picked a more beautiful spot. We ate dinner on our deck 9 out of 10 nights, because we could not find a better setting. The cottage is so well equipped and comfortable. Thank you for sharing with us. We look forward to returning. Special thanks to Yvonne at Tropical Villa Vacations for looking after our needs. Mahalo! The O Family. 01/2010

Wailea Sunset Bungalow is a well appointed guest house that comes with everything you need. The sunset views from the oceanfront lawn are spectacular but equally nice in the morning when surfers enjoy the break just offshore. Easily walk to Polo Beach for sandy water fun in the ocean or down to the resorts for dinner or cocktails. Tropical Villa Vacations service is fantastic--checking in to checking out, they want guests to be comfortable and happy. The only reservation about this property is that nearby house construction is persistent and annoying at times, but this is fully disclosed in the property write up and should end when the "mother of all waterfront palaces" is completed (seriously it is a huge home)! 01/2010

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by this beautiful bungalow. We have never stayed anywhere that was so well equipped. This bungalow had every amenity you could think of. The service provided by Tropical Villa Vacations was excellent. Someone was there to greet us, and they checked in regularly to see how things were going. The concierge service is five star. We enjoyed the experience so much, we booked again for next January. Until then, we have our great memories to hold us over. We would not hesitate to use Tropical Villa Vacations in the future and highly recommend them to anyone who is considering a vacation in Hawaii. Sincerely, The Olearys 01/2010

We thoroughly enjoyed this little slice of heaven! The water was so lovely at all the surrounding beaches. Sunset took our breath away. And the stars! Just a perfect getaway. We will be back. Many thanks for a lovely stay. The H Family 11/2009

We came here to celebrate Andy's 50th Birthday and what a sweet surprise indeed. Your home is just warm and wonderful - couldn't imagine a more special place. We snorkeled every morning, surfed right out front, kite-boarding and came back each night to your home which felt like home. Thank you very much for sharing your home and making Andy's 50th so special. We will be back. Andy & Becky 11/2009

My daughter and I had a wonderful time here in Wailea! We came to plan Mischa's wedding that will be next year at the Fairmont right down the street. The bungalow is perfect and was a very restful spot for us. Many fond memories of sunsets and fabulous restaurants nearby too. Alison & Mischa, Novato CA. 09/2009

When we drove in the driveway - it felt like we were coming home. Our second stay here was just as nice as before and we hope to come back again. It was snowing when we left CO to come here so we really enjoyed the beach, snorkeling, and of course those boogie boards. Thanks for keeping WSB so nice and so comfortable! Scott & Helen Clark, Longmont, CO. 10/2009

WSB is an enchanting, laid-back oasis. This is our 1st visit to Hawaii and now that I've seen the other spots I considered, I am SO HAPPY we decided on WSB. I researched a lot, and it paid off!!! We feel so blessed to have shared this little piece of heaven. P.s. please don't tear down and build a mansion -keep it simple. Linda & Don Ahlberg, Altamonte Springs, FL. 10/2009

"What you see is what you get". Very well represented. Overwhelmingly good service. Paradise, great value for money, unique location, would not want to stay in a hotel any more. The concierge service was invisible and highly effective. It was an unforgettable experience. Thank you for everything. We plan to return to Maui! H Family 07/2009

What a cozy, quaint, peaceful, and beautiful place! We stayed next door in February with our 5 kids, this time it is just the two of us and this place couldn`t be more perfect! Thank you for making this an amazing place to stay, everything you could want or need is here! We will be back!! The H family 06/2009

This place is absolutely beautiful. We really enjoyed our time here. It is quiet, very close to the beach and had everything we could want. (Washer and dryer, outside shower, Jacuzzi, etc.). We are off to Kaua`i, but I doubt our stay there will be as wonderful. The A family. 05/2009

We had a wonderful time! So close to nice beaches, snorkeling, kayaking, we enjoyed being able to relax at the end of the day, so peaceful! The campfire at sunset was amazing! Mahalo! The S family 05/2009

What a truly lovely spot on earth close to paradise! Thankfully far from the crowds. The evening breezes and fabulous sunsets were a joy to behold. On our last night here we had the whole place to ourselves - such a luxury! And the outside shower was truly a treat. Mahalo The T family 05/2009

Such a beautiful place. A must to get a kayak. Perfect beach for launching. We saw turtles and even manta rays. They swam under our kayak and one even breached completely! Awesome sight. South pacific kayak will bring kayaks to the bungalow for you and pick it up when you`re done. Great snorkeling and diving. Just being secluded from the resorts was great. Had the beach to ourselves. We'll be back! The L family 04/2009

We had a wonderful time and look forward to coming again. We especially loved Na Alii massage. Having it here was s real treat! The S family 04/2009

Aloha, Thank you for sharing your beautiful bungalow with us, this is our second year here and it keeps getting better. We loved snorkeling. Surfing, swimming, going to the aquarium, and we especially loved the view! We had a wonderful breakfast right next to the ocean, hearing the waves and construction. We also woke up by the birds chirping and the waves. It was so great. Thank you so much we were able to spend 10 days with the whole family. Wonderful memories stayed at this house. We all just love it. Mahalo, gracias, merci, THANK YOU! The E family 04/2009

Everything was perfect! The weather, the view, the bungalow, it was all so beautiful. Hawaii is truly a paradise. We watched whales and sea turtles off the beach and went snorkeling. We loved our little spa with the tiki torches. How sad it is to be leaving so soon! My wife and I honeymooned in Tahiti and coming here to Hawaii was such a reminder of that trip. We cannot wait to come back! Aloha and Mahalo. The G family 03/2009

Thank you for opening this home to guests. We greatly enjoyed our stay here. We were very appreciate of our proximity to the ocean. We just enjoyed listening to the waves and birds. Seeing turtles out front was delightful. We were very fortunate to have the best sunset our last evening here which just made it that much more special. To more sunsets and to all those who stay here.... Cheers! V Family 09/2008

This is the third year in a row that my sister-in-law and I have stayed in your quintessential tropical paradise. Each year we appreciate the ability/opportunity to be your guests more. Thank you for providing/sharing this luxurious yet simple island paradise. My husband and I are frequent visitors to Maui, and we can't imagine staying anywhere else, as this is "Hawaii". We cannot wait to come back. Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo, T Family 10/2008

Thank you for letting us experience Maui in your lovely home. We have been truly blessed to have had the opportunity to stay in your slice of heaven. Your home had a wonderful charm and was more than we expected. We hope our girls and our family will treasure our experience forever. B Family 07/2008

We had an incredible three weeks in your bungalow. What an incredible location. Beautiful sunsets away from the crowds & fabulous views. The kids loved all the grass to play and of course the hot tub. Thank you for the wonderful memories. C Family 07/2008

We loved our magical time here at the cottage. Apart from the obvious (location, sunsets, ocean) we appreciated the little touches of the management company. The water (bottles) bed side, the coffee beans in the fridge, the bathrobes and all those towels! But mostly we appreciate the opportunity to create many wonderful memories among three girlfriends in a tropical paradise. Many thanks! G Family 06/2008

Such a wonderful little place, we feel like we have a secret place. While the construction noise was annoying at first, we just felt lucky that we were not sharing our place with the hordes of people just up the coast. White Rock Beach was perfect and close. Actually, sailing to Molokini on a catamaran was a treat and very relaxing. We took our time and will be back to see what we missed. Darn, I just heard it is snowing at home. We will definitely be back!

For the two of us we like the smaller size and being away from the crowds - great place. Nice extras - coffee, flowers. Please thank the owners for sharing such a jewel - it is just what we needed to break the "cold-drums" of Colorado. C Family 03/2008

We had an amazing week here and the accommodations exceeded our expectations by far. The service was also very good and responsive. We will be back for more as soon as we can. T,R,J of Cambridge, England 02/2008

Aloha! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your two beautiful homes! I had so much fun! You are such great friends to let us stay here. Love you lots! Mahalo again! Emily S. 08/2007

Thank you so much for letting us stay in this amazing house/bungalow with you again!! I had so much fun just like I do every year!! Staying with you is the highlight of my summer and what I look forward to all year. Hopefully we'll get to keep our tradition and come back next year!! Thanks you again! Xoxo love Katie S. 08/2007

Dear Mr. & Mrs. McCoy, Thank you so much for letting me stay in this gorgeous house again! Wow! This year was great! I have to leave soon. Hope to see this house again soon! Love, Charlotte H.

Amazing honeymoon surrounding!! We snorkeled, night dived, BBQ'd and hot tubbed!! The view is spectacular and the sounds are soothing. We married here 07/2007. Nick and Sarah C., Tri Cities, WA. 07/2007

We had an awesome time! Snorkeling out here was fantastic, tons on turtles! Bache Ball and Croquet are perfect games to play while sipping cocktails. As we recommended on the previous page Makena Coast Charters is the best for diving. They are very personable and make you feel well taken cared of. We're going to miss it here!! The T. and C. Family

We`ve been dreaming about a trip like this for a long, long time. It was a dream come true and we can`t imagine a better setting for it. The weather was perfect. (Thanks!) The wildlife was good company. Especially enjoyed the ukulele trees! Thanks for everything! We`ll be back! Ted & Carrie N. Nashville, TN May 18-24, 2007

We had a very wonderful time. We will all definitely be back. We got married here and will be back for our anniversary. What a wonderful place. Thank You!!! John & Tammy Wilson, Kennewick, WA Frankie & Tim Ashby, Dunmore, KY. May 12-19, 2007

Wow! Turtles, Whales, a beautiful bungalow, and PARADISE. I`m dizzy. Who could ask for anything more. I mean, an outdoor shower, Jacuzzi, a beautiful view, and a huge play area. Now that is what I call paradise. We enjoyed this beautiful house for 8 days and never got tired of it. After we finished one thing we were off to the next! We`ll be back! The R. family, San Diego, CA April 13-21, 2007

We are here! We had a ball and love you guys!! Aloha y'all! Psalm 37:4. Mike and Mae B. 04/2007

Just a beautiful spot. Mai Tais on the lawn each evening. Watching the turtles bob up and down with whales breaching behind them. Ridiculous!! Sandy beach just down the path is worth spending a few afternoons relaxing. You`d be hard pressed not to enjoy this place. The B. Family SF, CA

An absolute delight. This piece of paradise. We`re not ready to leave. We enjoyed watching the geckos feed by the porch light at night and found that the birds prefer whole grain bread. We saw whales everyday and the turtles most days. We hardly needed to go else where because it was so beautiful here. Mahalo, K&G C. delta, BC, Canada 02/2007

Thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful ocean front house with us once again. I can't wait till next time! With love, Katie S. Glendale CA. 08/2007

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had a great time. We hope to come back soon!! Charlotte H./Katie S., Glendale GA, 08/2006.

Thanks for allowing us to stay in this relaxing bungalow. The view is spectacular, great sea kayaking with plenty of green turtles, water so clean and warm. Thanks for the memories. Debra and Joel H., Prescott, AZ 07/2006

Our family is having a reunion here and the 12 of us are staying in the Wailea Sunset Estate and Bungalow. This is the 5th year vacationing in Maui for some of us, and it is truly a "paradise", especially at this property. How could any home be more grand and so liveable. R. Family 06/2006

I had a great time in Maui. The one thing I need to tell you about is the tide pools outside are awesome. I also had a great time surfing with my mom. We went to Maui Surfer Girls. It was so fun we even saw a turtle ride behind my board, it was so cool. Speaking of turtles the snorkeling here is so cool. I saw so many turtles, fish, dolphins, and whales it was awesome. Hawaii (Maui) has some weird animals too like cardinals and mongoose, it was really weird to see them in Maui. Well that was my awesome vacation. Aloha. S. Shaffer, 04/2006

This place is one rare jewel! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. We had a wonderful time. Thanks again for everything! D. & J. Boysen, 04/2006

I wanted to let you know that the Sunset Bungalow has to be the nicest rental home we have ever occupied on vacation! We alway use the internet to find a house because they are much more comfortable than a hotel room with kids. I know you asked if the house was adequately portrayed in your advertisements. Its even better than you advertise. Especially the kitchen. Since we do this a lot, I am familiar with encountering an empty kitchen and having to buy things like napkins, dish soap, spices etc. and wasting a lot of them on a short trip. I brought a weeks supply of these things with me to Maui and didn't need a single item. I also was amazed at the number of towels and chuckled that no one could use that many... but we did! The midweek housecleaning was also a very nice touch. One rarely encountered. Also, I would like to thank your staff who were very professional and accommodating from the point of reservation till our departure. I was especially surprised to get a call from your staff welcoming us to Maui and letting us know the house was ready for us. I really felt like your staff was on par with everything that was happening to us and ready to help at a moments notice. Lastly, we took you up on your advice to enjoy the Maui Magic and Ali Nui snorkel trips. The Maui Magic was very enjoyable and I liked the "rough" trip down the coast to La Perouse Bay......but I must tell you, the Ali Nui trip was unparalleled! The ship was stunning and the amenities top notch. The snorkeling site they took us to was a thousand times better than Molokini! Thanks for the great recommendation. I hope we have to opportunity to return to Hawaii again. I will definitely look up your company again for accommodations. Mahalo! Sue S. 04/2006

Thank you for everything! You found us the perfect place. We swam, shopped, looked for shells, shopped, visited all the pretty little towns and shopped some more. Every day we watched the whales, and some were so near we felt we could touch them. We swam with turtles right here in the bay and found a suitcase full of shells. Missed the sunsets this time but sat under a sky full of stars every night. And so much more. I loved our little cottage here. It has everything we needed and more. I really don't want to leave. We hope to be back in a year or two and hope this little gem is available. R. Turcott, Canada, 03/2006

This Bungalow is so cool! I had a great time and a great birthday (13) here. For everyone that is reading this and visiting the bungalow this next part is for you. Go in the hot tub! It is really nice ! Watch the sunset at night, during that look to your slight right in very shallow water. Turtles! They come and play around poking there heads up to breathe. It's very cool! So I had a great time at the Bungalow! Thank you for everything! Emily M., California. 10/2005

The pre-arrival service was very friendly and professional. The Bungalow was even better than the pictures! Stay in business! M. Family 10/2005

A belated thank you for providing a fabulous vacation property. The Wailea Sunset Bungalow is my favorite vacation location to date. We split our vacation between a hotel and the Bungalow and 4 nights was not enough. I could have stayed for months. We usually stay at resort hotels, but the hotel experience could not compare to the beautiful location of this peaceful property. It was perfect for our family of four. I hope to be able to return in the future. I am hesitant to sing the praises of the Bungalow as I am afraid it will be snapped up by other renters!! My 10 year old daughter loved exploring the shore. Thanks so much. M Family 08/2005

This beach house is very calm & relaxing. The view is amazing which made some great photos. My younger sister had fun on the hammock, that's for sure. The artwork around the house is amazing. The beach right out front is a great place to go if you are looking for cool shells. The outdoor shower was a great utility. I expected it just to have regular temperature water but it actually heated up! My mom definitely wants to come back. Ally M. Orange County, CA. 08/2005

Your website of the bungalow was awesome and your staff was just great. Your concierge was awesome and tremendously helpful. This was the best vacation we have ever had and just can't wait to return for another visit. M Family 07/2005

Wow! This trip has been wonderful! The view, simply impeccable! I enjoyed looking at all the beautiful fish, exploring the tide pools and of course spending some time in the hammock. A nice beach is just a short distance away and it's a great place to body surf! Spend some time roasting marshmallows by the fire pit! (It's very relaxing!) Maui is a beautiful island with so much to explore! I hope you enjoy your trip as much as I did. Kelsey M. Phoenix, AZ. 07/2005

This trip and bungalow was just wonderful. I enjoyed exploring the tide pools and just relaxing in the hammock. Having the beach just steps away was perfect, I was even able to go body surfing. Our family spent time by the fire pit roasting marshmallows, it was fun being together as a family. M Family 07/2005.

We attended a wedding at the Grand Wailea. It was convenient to get to the dress rehearsal, etc. and still have a comfy home for Savanna. We snorkeled several mornings and saw green sea turtles! Loved the sunsets, views, location and the trip! Thanks Maui! Ray Family, Greensboro, N.C. 05/2005

Our family is greatfull for being able to stay at this gorgeous beach bungalow. The views were just amazing, along with being within walking distance to the tide pools, and the beach. After a long day, being able to relax in the hot tub or just lay in the hammock was awesome! Your staff helped book us many different activities for us that we just loved. we had a great hawaiian experience. M Family 07/2005.

We loved being at the bungalow, our 13 month old daughter had a great time. It made her feel like she was still at home. We spent some of our time watching green sea turtles and others just enjoying the sun set each night. This bungalow is located in a great location with lots to see. R family 05/2005.

We are returning guests to the bungalow, and each time we have come has been better than the last.This place is just magical and we cannot see going anywhere else. M Family 05/2005.

We spent a week at a hotel before spending the best week here at this bungalow. This bungalow was just outstanding and rate it the best ever. G Family 02/2005.

We spent our 23rd anniversary here and fell in love all over again. The sunsets are so romantic and the location is just perfect, how could we not fall in love all over again. The bungalow was very comfortable and made our stay complete, we hope to stay here again. O Family 01/2005.

We spent 8 great days here just enjoying ourselves and having a very nice time. We spent our many afternoon hours just watching the whales go spouting by. It was a very good time. A Family 11/2004

I write this on our final morning in glorious Maui, a large mug of Kona coffee in my hand and another picture perfect morning view in front of me. Even after extending our stay by 2 nights, 12 days here wasn't enough!! The past 18 months have been hectic and stressful and my husband's gift to me on my 45th birthday was this vacation. Truly a second honeymoon for us. We will return to the real world tomorrow morning, complete with a teenager, dog, momma cat and 4 kittens spoiled by Grandpa and Grandma. Relaxed and content and hopefully prepared to tackle the ordinary (by comparison) day-to-day struggles better than when we left home. We hope to return on our 10th anniversary in 2006! K.H. and C.H.,Illinois. 11/2004

Makena in the summer - warm, not hot, with Kona winds...not so typical to have so many days of 90 degree + weather. Coming to the rescue, the team at Tropical Villa...a portable air conditioner and an extra umbrella stand softened the afternoon heat! Mahalo to Anne, Yvonne and Mike for your TLC. The accommodations were terrific. Great beds, anything you need in kitchen or bath supplies. Obviously the setting is breathtaking. Right down to our friends the sea critter family, who came for dinner each evening off to the right. Aloha and Mahalo - The G Family. 08/2004

We came from California and Texas for Opas 80th birthday. This place is truly a joy and a piece of paradise. The H Family. 11/2004

Thanks to you and your staff, my wife and myself had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at the Wailea Sunset Bungalow. Everything that your company represented about the property was accurate, there were only pleasant surprises. Yvonne was very attentive to the couple of requests that we had. We had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to future visits to Hawaii through Tropical Villa Vacations. Mark A./Family 08/2004

We LOVED staying at your adorable bungalow! We definitely will be back! The accommodations were perfect...with a perfect location. F. Family 03/2004. We love the bungalow. It has such a beautiful setting. We hope to return next year. A&B 04/2004.

What a great place. We had a wonderful time and everyone was so nice and helpful. The house is just the perfect vacation place, with the beach so close and also so quiet. We loved every minute. H. Family 04/2004.

Jennifer and I are still trying to get over the greatness of the island and the bungalow. We were both really sad to have to leave such an awesome place. I'm not sure I could have pick a better honeymoon location. I wanted to thank you and Sheree both, The Wailea Sunset Bungalow, as you once said, IS A PERFECT PLACE. Thank you! Jared F. Pleased guest of the Wailea Sunset Bungalow! 02/2004

I wanted to say how happy we were to stay at such a nice place and how professional your company was. I hope we left everything in good order. Thank you again for everything. We enjoyed ourselves very much. William O. 02/2004

Everything was great, and it was exactly what we were looking for. It definitely made our Maui vacation a one of a kind! 01/2004

We have enjoyed our vacation on Maui. The house was great for us. the view is so beautiful, morning and night. 01/2004

This is truly an amazing place! All the amenities mixed with the beautiful location. A real beach bungalow. We brought our 3 teenage daughters here to celebrate Christmas. It was so wonderful to not have been in the traditional hustle bustle of Christmas. We feel so blessed to have spent our Christmas here. This has been a trip of a life-time for our family. I am surfing the net sitting by the ocean (wireless network)12/2003

We are here celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect trip, except it could have been longer! The house is beautiful with a perfect view. The sunsets from the deck were wonderful! This is our first trip to Hawaii and we have learned so much about this beautiful state. The rain forests, volcano, and drive to Hana are all things not to be missed.10/2003

We decided to surprise our 13 year old daughter and my 12 year old niece with this trip. We told them we were going to hot Indiana for 10 days. They didn't find out abut Hawaii until we boarded with plane in L.A.!! The surprise was grand... the vacation home was the icing on the cake. The view and grounds are absolutely amazing! I thought it would be hard to enjoy myself on this trip while leaving our 2-month old home with Grandma and Grandpa, but in all actuality it was great to have such a peaceful visit without the demands of our newborn. Thank You! K.S. 08/2003
PS: We were able to bond with the children on such a peaceful piece of property.

I am Jessica. I am here with my Aunt, Uncle and Cousin. Well, got to go, bye. ps:This place is BEAUTIFUL! 06/2003

This place is wonderful. I love it here. This has been the best vacation ever. The beach is wonderful. My sister and I loved going out and playing in the yard. This is paradise. I have enjoyed this trip so much. The view from the house is great!!!! This is a great place. The sunset was wonderful. We all loved snorkeling. I'm going to miss seeing the ocean and the smell of the saltwater. I enjoyed every minute of being here. I loved getting to sit on the log, roast marshmallows and listening to the ocean. I can't imagine a better vacation. I love being here at Maui. A.M. Age 10. 06/2003

We are truly sad to leave this amazing place. Everything is so peaceful and beautiful. I can't imagine a better view to see each morning and evening. We loved playing croquet while the sun went down. Our whole family had a magical relaxing vacation here and couldn't want for anything more. Thank you for this beautiful spot in the world. The M. Family

This place is wonderful! Hopefully we will be back next year. It is like living on a piece of heaven!! 11/2000

This property made our vacation especially delightful. We found the snorkeling right in front of the property to be the best! Not only is this location ideal, but this house had everything we needed. 10/2000

Watch as many sunsets as you can - absolutely amazing! Fall asleep listening to the waves, spend mornings in the ocean, and visit the colorful fish as you snorkel. Don't take for granted any of the beautiful gifts Maui has to offer. Enjoy each day to the absolute fullest! 09/2000

Wow! We just watched our last sunset on Maui. This view can't be beat, phenomenal. We love the sound of the ocean, the warm breezes, and the sway of the palms. I hope we are lucky enough to return to this very spot. Enjoy!! 09/2000

Wonderful peace!! We enjoyed every minute - beautiful sunsets! Hope to return soon. Mahalo. 08/2000

My best friend and my family stayed here at the bungalow. My friend asked me how are we going to describe the sunsets to out friends back home? I said WOW! Wonderful, relaxing and stress free at the Sunset Bungalow. Love being on the ocean...early morning coffee on the deck listening to the many birds. Woke up every morning with sunshine! 08/2000

Thanks for an exceptional holiday. We have been to Greece, France, the South Pacific, Bali, spent 3 years in a bungalow on the beaches of the Sunda Straits, but Wailea Sunset Bungalow is right up there with the rest. We appreciated the simplicity, the good taste in decoration, the thoughtful details, but most of all we appreciated an opportunity to live (for a week only!) a lifestyle that must come somewhat close to the original Hawaiian life. This is so much better than the luxury hotels. Hope to be here again. 07/2000

Thank you for the perfect start to our family vacation. We have all enjoyed ourselves in the bungalow, loved the kitchen, stocked nicely. Also, the use of the boogie boards, grill, spa and adorable sitting room. It is sad to leave such a beautiful home. 07/2000

We can't thank you enough for your assistance with providing this hideaway. The cottage was very equipped to meet all of our needs. We certainly enjoyed the BBQ and the spa. Even though we have been to Maui many times, nothing compares to this. The view is breathtaking, relaxing and beautiful. We'll be back next year.0 7/2000

Deer, turtles, dolphin, geckos, birds, beautiful plant life, shooting stars, and cosmic sunsets. Life is good here - we will be back! 07/2000

In our nine days, we saw good surf, surfers, turtles, geckos, a variety of birds, great sunsets and every once in a while, the inside of the bungalow. We had a wonderful time and hope to be back. 07/2000

This house on the beach gave us wonderful sunset views and fast easy access to the water. Loved the beach access, being able to walk north along hotel row or climb cliffs south. We spent the mornings swimming, sunning & walking, the afternoon's drives exploring and the evenings at nice restaurants - all followed by a game of croquet! Oh yeah, loved the outdoor shower, rinsing in the sun. 06/2000

This is just the place we needed after a busy school year. Great bungalow, it had everything we needed and more. We'll never forget our ten-day stay in Paradise! 06/2000

I thank God that I found this place on the Internet. There were so many places to consider, then there on the screen was the spectacular view from the Bungalow. We have never visited Hawaii before and we all feel that we have enjoyed a little of paradise on earth. We can't wait to return and will always recommend the lovely Sunset Bungalow. 05/2000

We will never forget this wonderful house with the Jacuzzi under the stars and breathtaking views. 05/1/00

Our visit in this bungalow has been heavenly. We leave reluctantly, but filled with fine memories: whale watching, dolphins leaping, trade winds cooling, stars shining, birds singing. We stared at the ocean, lots of walking, snorkeling and a trek to Hana. It's exactly what the doctor ordered. I needed peace, relaxation and found them here. Watching the whales, the sea and the sunsets was wonderful. I hope we can come back. 03/08/00

You couldn't ask for a better setting! You've got everything you need right here, excellent stocked kitchen. 02/2000

We loved the Bungalow and the incredible views. You have everything one could possibly need or want. We enjoyed visits to Paia, Makawao, and other small remote areas. Both of us had a massage here at the Bungalow. It was fantastic! 01/2000

Absolutely Amazing! The views, hot tub, patio, and tasty beverages made our trip very memorable. The sound of the waves and the warm ocean breezes allowed out spirits to roam and our souls to rest. 01/2000
