We just returned from a fabulous vacation in Hawaii. Our villa experience was a five star ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ experience beyond our wildest dreams! The four bedroom, 3 bathroom villa was beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable and incredibly spacious. Our large family ( 6 adults and 2 young children) were able to relax on two balconies, a gorgeous dining room, living room and state of the art kitchen. Excellent and personable service all along the way. Highly recommend them! The V Family, 02/2017
What a wonderful villa. Incredible views. We loved every minute of it. Thank you for providing everything a family needs. Our granddaughter turned 2 and my husband turned 60 while we were here. Best birthdays ever. Thank you. The M Party, 11/2016
Blue Horizons K 308 is absolutely stunning. The Villa is superbly appointed and more than adequately met the needs of the 7 people in my family. It has stunning views from the lania and the master bedroom. All 4 bedrooms are luxuriously furnished and have generous supplies of toiletries and linens. The large kitchen has every appliance you could possibly want. Having 2 refrigerators/ freezers was ideal. I think there were more utensils, crockery, cutlery, cooking aids etc. than I have in my own home. We highly recommend this Villa to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday on Maui in a beautiful tropical setting. The M Family, 11/2016
Awesome condo and great service from TVV
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had 6 adults and 2 small children staying here and it was perfect. Great Wailea location with a great beach. The side you are on is quiet and sparsely populated, which is awesome. Snorkeling right off the beach as well with a large amount of coral in the rocky area to the right. The setup is great, you can walk right onto the beach and get resort-quality service from the beach attendants. Back at the pool its the same, always very low amounts of people, ice cold lemon water, towels and plenty of chairs with umbrellas. Having the full kitchen (fully stocked!) and the beautiful BBQ Lanai setup is perfect for families like ours, grilling some mahi-mahi with a beer is so much nicer than trying to wrangle sun-tried toddlers at yet another restaurant. When you do want to get something to eat or buy a quick item, the Wailea shops are right next door (there is a specific gate just for these villas) and they recently opened a mini-grocery store as well, making it super convenient to grab stuff for dinner or a loaf of bread for sandwiches. The condo itself is exactly like the pictures, its beautifully appointed with comfy beds, nice linens and towels and is very spacious overall. We got a cleaning for free halfway through our stay, which was nice, and there is a bellman and concierge if you need them as well. Overall I would definitely stay here or in a similar condo at the same complex again, simply perfect! The H Family, 08/, 2016
Thank you for everything! We had a blast! The W Family, 08/2016
We loved our stay in beautiful K-308! Wailea is always fantastic and our 1st stay at WBV made the trip even more fantastic. We look forward to a return trip. The D Family, 08/2016
We enjoyed the view, accommodations and well appointed rooms. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Thank you for an amazing vacation! The N Family, 07/2016
Our first trip to Maui - We love this place it's wonderful. We are having a wonderful family get together vacation. The H Family. 05/2016
Simons family’s second time staying here. Always a wonderful time. Thank you! The S Family, 03/2016
Perfect Setup For Family Vacation
Family of seven, stayed over Christmas, and this was the perfect setup for us. Here are some notes:
* Four bedrooms... Three nice ones + one small den/office (no closet) with a queen bed in it - offers little privacy, but is fine for kids.
* Exquisite ocean views from master bedroom and main living area/lanai.
* Exceptionally convenient location, right in between the Grand Wailea resort and the Shops at Wailea outdoor mall.
* Shops at Wailea are super close and easy to walk to. They offer several restaurant options, as well as a few markets with snacks, groceries, and food-to-go.
* Completely outfitted kitchen with everything you could possibly need to cook your own meals, plus a BBQ grill on the lanai.
* The kids' pool is three floors below, right below the lanai. This could be a plus or minus, depending on your opinion. We had no issue with it.
* The sun is very strong/hot on the lanai, which faces west. Sunsets are beautiful, but the lanai is pretty unusable from about 1 to 5. Needs an awning.
* Decor could be updated in my opinion, but it is fine, comfortable, clean, spacious, and everything you need is there (toiletries, towels, etc.)
* Maid service daily. Beach towels replaced daily.
* Parking easy and free.
* No issues getting chairs at the pool or beach. Massages available beachside too! :)
* Lovely beachfront adult pool.
* The friendliest, most helpful concierge I've ever encountered.
* We were so much happier staying here than at one of the big resorts. The only thing it lacks that the resorts have is room service and poolside food/drink service. Otherwise, it has everything you could possibly need. Plus, it is not nightmarishly crowded like all the resorts are, especially at holiday time.
Overall, an excellent choice, and we would choose to stay here again. (Previously, we have stayed at the Fairmont in Wailea, the Hyatt in Kaanapali, and the Ritz-Carlton in Kapalua.)
The C Family, Oregon, 12/2016
Perfect! Thank you. Loved everything about staying here. Couldn't find one thing that we needed that wasn't provided. First time our small family gathered for a family vacation in a long time. Some dreams came true. The R and S Families, 11/2015
A Little bit of Heaven. One of the Best vacations our Family has had, we did not want to leave, the condo was very well appointed with so many amenities. We definitely will come back. Location is perfect for beach activities and shopping. The M Family, 08/2015
Thank you for letting us use your place. This was a great 50th wedding anniversary for my parents and and family. The C & F Families, 08/2015
Loved spending a week in Wailea at this beautiful villa! Great view and a wonderful place to relax with family in between the fun beach activities! Aloha, The M Family, Austin Texas. 08/2015
We had a wonderful family vacation. This place was truly beautiful. Hope to come back. The J Family, 05/2015
Mahalo for a relaxing, fun-filled and memorable stay. Beautiful villa that was perfect for gathering our family. After 30+ years of visiting Wailea, we never get tired of it! Aloha The S Family, 04/2015
Everything at Blue Horizons was fantastic! Upon arrival we were blown away by the villa, the views, the linens, the kitchen (which was stocked with everything!), the decor, and everything else. We traveled with a total of 4 adult couples and the villa worked out perfectly. Each couple had plenty of room and privacy. We've been to Maui a few times and had never stayed somewhere like this before. We would definitely return to Blue Horizons during our next visit. The L Family, 03/2015
Thank you for hosting us in your amazing home! We had a fabulous week! Everything we needed! We love Maui! The B Family, 01/2015
Amazing Place!!! Loved the balcony doors that tucked all the way into the walls! We absolutely loved it here. Can’t wait to be back. The D Family, 12/2014
Maui offered us a beautiful & relaxing, yet fun & adventurous family vacation. We took a helicopter tour, swam with turtles, saw the sunrise @ 10,000 ft., survived the road to Hana, jumped 40 ft. into Venus Pool, relaxed on the beach, visited red & black sand, enjoyed Nick's Fish Market & Kimo's, floated in the pool, marveled at the sunset, visited the Feast at Lele, and fell in love with life in Hawaii. We will never forget our time in Maui. The H Family, 07/2014
We had an amazing week we really don't want to leave! This place is fantastic - we are really thankful we had our vacation here! Aloha & Mahalo, the C Family, 07/2014
This villa was the perfect place to stay! The grounds are beautiful and the villa itself is so spacious and has an amazing view of the bay! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here celebrating two anniversaries (25 years for Steve & Denise and 2 years for Eric & Bre) and a birthday (29 for Chad). We couldn't have picked a better place to stay and we hope we can come back again! The S Family, California, 06/14
This is our second time staying here. We had a wonderful family vacation. This condo is a great place to stay. We will be back. The S & E Families, Austin, TX 01/2014
The online photos do not do this villa justice. The furnishing, the view, everything was a 20 on a scale from 1 to 10. The staff was just as wonderful. We will be back. The A Family, 08/2013
We had an awesome time! Great place. Molokini was our favorite. Everything was fabulous! The M Family, 08/2013
Sydney was great. She even "baby-proofed" the villa. Concierge was extremely friendly and helpful. Beach workers spoiled us with attention. Quality of construction was perfect. We had nine family members in our four bedroom villa and it was perfect. We have already recommended it to three friends. We will return. Bob and Judy, 08/2013
Love Maui SO much! Best vaca ever. Great people also. It was totally awesome. The N Party, 07/2013
It has been a joy to spend these past 8 days with my best friend, (of 28 years), here in this tropical paradise! We have had the joy of our husbands & all our children with us! We will do this again… a new tradition! The S Family, 06/2013
We are friends of above and had a magical time with them in this place. We look forward to our return in the future. The B Family, 06/2013
It was FABOOSH! Great vacation! The G Family, 06/2013

What an amazing place to enjoy the tranquility of Maui. I have been to Maui numerous times and this place is on the top of my list! Thanks for attending to all the details in your gorgeous place! The R Family, 03/2012
This is our fourth year! We love our stay in this amazing place. Time to enjoy family and friends. We feel like this is our home away from home. The staff from Tropical Villa Vacations are the best in the world and have every detailed item for Maui at our disposal. We look forward to many more visits. The C Family, 02/2012
December on Maui! Not much else to say. The Suite is sweet. Nice place! Enjoying our stay with the gang. The T Family, 12/2011
This is our 4th stay in K308. Always fantastic, always can't wait to come back. The J Family, 11/2011
A beautiful, tranquil and adventurous spot to get away from the daily grind with people you love. I feel rejuvenated and reminded of what's most important in life. Am thankful for the opportunity to stay here for the first time and the wonderful memories. Can't wait to come back! The J Family, 11/2011
This condo is amazing. The beach is perfect and the views are breathtaking. This was our dream vacation, from sunsets on the deck, to snorkeling with the turtles, it had it all. Looking forward to coming back soon! The L Family, 10/2011
Our days were not blue in the Blue Horizon. Our days were full of sunshine! The F Family, 09/2011
Thank you so much for our fabulous stay here at the villa. We didn't want to leave. Just perfect! The P Family, 05/2011.
Our stay here at your lovely villa was absolutely wonderful. Thank you for making our stay perfect! Mahalo, The Y Family, 04/2011.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful home. We enjoyed our time with family and friends. The C Family,02/2011
We had such a great time that we don't want to go back home just yet. Wish we could stay another week. The C Family, 02/2011
Had a great time with the entire family! Thank you! The H Family, 12/2010
This was our first family vacation. And our girls had a blast! From the first moment we stepped into this amazing condo and saw the view - it was love at first sight! We have had a great time and we definitely spoiled ourselves a little by coming here. It was worth it. The girls enjoyed the beach, pool and surrounding grounds and we were able to enjoy ourselves without any worry that they would hurt themselves. Great location! Great place! Great time! The M Family, 12/2010.
The entire staff was very professional, prompt, friendly, most particularly Yvonne. She went out of her way to make our trip very memorable. Unit is beautiful. Comfortable. Worth every dime. I would definitely come back! The R Family, 11/2010
When we entered the condominium from our private elevator the first thing you saw was the beautiful view of the ocean and mountain. Our family ate most of our meals on the spacious outdoor patio which was equipped with a Viking gas grill. The unit was comfortable yet elegant. The kitchen was equipped with two refrigerators, many appliances, dishes, silverware, pots, spices, two coffee pots, plenty of coffee, and much more. We did a lot of cooking over our stay and the only downfall was the unit had an electric stove top. There were plenty of bath towels as well as beach umbrellas, chairs, and beach towels. The beds were very comfortable and the master bath had a beautiful soaking tub. The view from the master bath was also spectacular. When you walked on the property grounds you were surrounded by colorful native plants and there was a little man-made stream that meandered through the property. K 308 at Wailea Beach Villas exceeded our expectations and made our family vacation one to remember. We hope we can return someday soon! The S Family, 10/2010
We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and our son was married while in Maui. The villa was incredible. We had a villa that was furnished and stocked beyond our expectations. We loved the family pool since we had our granddaughters with us. The beach was perfect and and lounge chair service the best! We were able to host small dinner parties and used the barbecue often. We had so much space we never felt crowded! We had groceries delivered for our arrival and could start our vacation the minute we arrived! We loved everything and the only thing we didn't like was leaving! Marysville, Washington, 10/2010
This was our first stay in Wailea. Everything was wonderful with lots of room to accommodate for our a family of eight (8). We had a wedding and the bride and groom had their privacy with a bedroom and bath secluded from everyone else. We love Maui! and absolutely plan on returning. S Family 10/2010
This place is so FABULOUS! We just had the best time cooking, watching sunsets, swimming with sea turtles. We hope everyone has as splendid a time as we did. Live it up! The S Family, 08/2010
What a wonderful stay! The condo is beautiful and we felt right at home. The view is breathtaking and the vacation was such a treat. Thank you for sharing your getaway home with our family. The M Family, July 2010
We have been to Maui many times including last year and stayed at the Grand Wailea. Staying here in K308 was such a nice, relaxing treat! The condo was set up so nicely, every needed amenity was provided for us. We would love to come back on another trip! The N Family, 07/2010
What a beautiful way to vacation. Couldn't think of one more thing we could have needed, other than another week or two! We'll be back. The V Family, 06/2010.
Words cannot describe what a wonderful time we had here on Maui. It was absolutely amazing and we will hold the memories made here close to our hearts forever. The villas are like a palace on the beach! The B Family, 06/2010.
Wow...what an amazing place to call home for a week. We had such a wonderful time playing in the ocean, watching the sunset, swimming with the sea turtles and just relaxing with the family. It is hard to leave but the memories are forever. The P Family, 06/2010
An amazing time was had by all whether it was sitting by the pool with adult beverages, hiking the volcano, swimming with the turtles or enjoying the view, K308 made it all the better. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to returning soon, The S Party, 04/2010.
We had a fabulous time here in paradise! Hope to return someday. The Z Family, 04/2010
Where else can you swim with sea turtles, watch whales and lounge on a beautiful beach, all before noon! We had an amazing vacation and hope to return to Maui and K308 soon! THe F Family, 04/2010.
We had an awesome time between the whales, site seeing and the beach, it was amazing! The H Family, March 2010
Wonderful family holiday. Awesome accommodations. Best vacation ever! Lots of memories made! The C Family, 03/2010.

This place is absolutely awesome! It's beautiful and we loved it! H & S Family 05/2009
The accommodations were outstanding! We loved the view, location and convenience of it all. It was the perfect location for our family vacation. We can't thank you enough. S Family 04/2009.
This was a family trip for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. My parents do not travel often and typically do not enjoy staying away from home. Although, they were excited for the trip and the opportunity to see Hawaii, they were skeptical. We were all awed by these accomodations. The pictures on the website are lovely but the villa is truly exceptional and the views are magnificent! Everything from the fully stocked kitchen, beautiful linens, lawn chairs and cooler and toys for the kids were available for us. We also loved the location - so close to the beach, pools, shops and restaurants. The Tropical Villa Vacationsstaff was amazing. They were with us every step of the way - helping us select the right accomodations and activities, greeting us at the villa and following up throughout our stay to ensure the trip was perfect. My parents mention monthly how much they loved this trip and the accomodations. It was truly the trip of the lifetime for them. Montana, 04/2009
"Was your accommodation fairly represented to you during the reservation process?" Yes, but you could do an even better job depicting how lovely it is. "Do you have any comments about the assistance you received during the reservation process or prior to arrival?" It was very thorough- Fabulous! "Was our Concierge Service helpful and do you have any suggestions?" Yes- VERY HELPFUL! Thank you! "Do you plan to return to Maui?" Yes! soon! We have so many good things to say about our trip to Maui, especially our condo! Thank you so much for making it such a wonderful place to stay. The fully stocked condo - towels, soap, shampoo, ziplock bags, coffee, etc. You thought of EVERYTHING! It made getting settled so much easier. The nice quality items like the towels, the heavy silverware, the lovely plates, etc. Thanks for sparing no expense on those. The well-thought out supply cabinet. Who knew we would desperately need batteries for a computer mouse? That saved the day. The flashlights were also great, along with all the soap for all our cleaning needs. What a help that was when we have 4 kids in tow. The excellent service when we had a question about nannies, snorkeling, etc. Thanks, Marsha and Yvonne! It was so helpful to have you to call. The greeter. What a nice introduction that made that transition so much smoother. Pretty much everything! It was just a great condo, perfect for our size group, and wonderfully located. We can`t wait to come back to these condos. You`ll see us again soon! And probably many of our friends! We can`t stop singing the praises of this place. Thanks Again!

This was our first family vacation and we all had a great time! We enjoyed cooking fresh meals every night and enjoying them with our wonderful view!
