A nice, clean oceanfront unit. Unit 610 is on the penthouse floor, and the ocean and sunset views from the living room and bedroom are spectacular. A really great value for the location, quality and price – in fact this unit is our 2014 top pick for a 1BR 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.
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.
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.
