Summary
A nice, clean oceanfront unit. Unit 311 is on the third floor, and the ocean and sunset views from the living room and bedrooms are spectacular. A really great value for the location, quality and price – in fact this unit is our 2015 top pick for a 2BR beachfront in Kihei – you simply won’t find a better value on the beach.

The floorplan layout of Village By The Sea rooms are not long rectangles like most Kihei condos – much, much better in terms of feeling like you’re in a home and not a box. You’re oceanfront on a sand beach also.

Owners live in the building, and are friendly and knowledgable. More importantly, they’re on top of maintaining the condo, and it really has a feel of home-away-from home.

Location
One reason the price stays in line is that the location isn’t sitting inside one of the posh resort areas in Wailea – but folks who’ve been to Maui know that actually matters very little because Maui is very small. You can be at any part of South Maui from here within minutes. All beaches in Maui are public, so in ten minutes you can be sitting at the same beach Paris Hilton lounges on (that would be Wailea Beach, by the way) but without the “on Wailea Beach” price tag.

The Beach
Village By The Sea sits beachfront on Waipu’ilani Beach, a long sand and coral beach protected by reef. Another local beach a short walk is Kalepolepo Beach Park, home to culturally significant and the most accessible ancient Hawaiian fishpond in Maui. Both are great beaches of convenience for when you want to escape touristy crowds, have dinner or drinks while you watch the sunset, or strike up a down-to-earth conversation with a local family.

    We stayed in this Unit in late October 2016. My wife and I and our two teenage daughters. This unit is EXCELLENT and probably one of the best values on Maui, in my opinion. While the Village By The Sea, might not be the most modern of condo complexes (it is still nice though), Unit #311 is outstanding. The Unit is well equipped with everything that you will need, it is decorated very nicely, it is very clean, and the views are outstanding. The pool area is nice. The grill area is excellent. The beach while so so for swimming (rocky and lots of coral) is almost devoid of people and makes for nice morning walks and sunset views. There are so many other awesome beaches just a few minute drive south, that we found it nice to spend the mornings on other beaches and come back to our condo beach for quiet sunsets. I would recommend this condo for those who like a quiet environment with a less “touristy” feel to their vacation. We had an excellent time!
