Maui Villa Inspections

Exotic Estates Villa Specialists are required to visit the company’s core destinations and tour its vacation homes and villas a regular basis. When travelers call Exotic Estates about a Maui villa in Hawaii, Colorado vacation rental or Cabo villa, they will have access to a collective pool of destination and specific home knowledge.

On a recent site inspection of our homes across the Hawaiian Islands, the team toured through some of Exotic Estates’ most popular villa rentals and even brought some new ones to the collection.

The team hails from diverse time zones to better serve our guests from the East and West Coasts and come with an incredible knowledge of destinations.

Maui was the first stop on a three-island tour. The team started in and around Lahaina, touring beachfront Maui villas and luxurious condo residences on Kapalua resorts.

Lahaina Vacation Rentals

The team started with visits to several gorgeous luxury vacation rentals in Lahaina, where many beachfront and hillside homes are located. The properties are in highest demand by Maui villa renters, who often return year after year to the island.

Truuli Maui Villa

Truuli Maui is an all-time favorite villa. This home is typical in the photos cannot give its size and beauty justice. It's set in a gorgeous and private location. The team loved it for the views, quiet and general creature comforts that it affords guests. For those who are looking for the best, this home is a winner.

Maui Royal Shores Villa

A standout home that the team found particularly special was the Maui Royal Shores Villa, located in a quiet area in Olowalu. This home is new, but has a wonderfully classic feel to it, and would fit in perfectly in the Hamptons or a refined New England beach town.

There is a formal living area with a soaring ceiling, along with comfy bedrooms, a stunning pool and separate cottage with gym.

Lahaina Oceanfront Estate

Another favorite home is the Lahaina Oceanfront Estate. This property is spacious and capable of hosting large groups. As its name suggests, it sits on the ocean in Lahaina, with incredible views of the water, the island of Lanai and the boats swaying in the harbor.

It’s more a family-friendly home than glamourous villa, but it has a wonderful old-school charm, with a sweeping staircase that creates a standout feature in the living room and a way to make a grand entrance on a special night!

Lahaina Palms Villa

Lahaina Palms is a unique Maui vacation home because it offers guests so much land and privacy. The house itself is family-friendly, which means it's a nice, comfortable vacation home that invites families and friends to kick back, turn on the watefall and soak in the green swaying palms and pretty mountain and ocean views. It's not too fancy, but it's a perfect oasis for a rambling family that needs lots of grass for games and a private pool and spa tub for soaking up Maui's famous stary nights.

Kapalua Luxury Condos

Up the coast about twenty minutes from Lahaina is the storied golfer destination of Kapalua. This beautiful resort community boasts a PGA golf course and several 5-star spas.

Napili Cove Villa

The Napili Cove Villa was a standout for the team, with its charming interior design, quite location and unobstructed views of Hawaiian green sea turtles feeding in clear waters of the bay below.

The views from this home are stunning from all levels. Walking into the home, you are struck by the view outside of the wall of windows and the deck that wraps around. The upstairs adds another great perspective and the two bedrooms upstairs each feature the same stunning vistas.

Maui Surf Villa

Another standout was a fabulous home in the hills overlooking the beaches of the West Maui, near Lahaina.

The Maui Surf Villa is a newly constructed home with a contemporary surf-culture interior design motif that incorporates beachy colors and imagery.

The home’s unobstructed views of the outer island of Lanai blew away our touring Villa Specialists, as did its spacious rooms, clean surfaces and the indoor-outdoor living.

Kihei Vacation Home and Bungalow

The team made their way down to Kihei and Wailea to tour some of the company’s homes there. Kihei is less of a tourist mecca as Lahaina, however, it’s got a fun local flavor, with lots of fun restaurants and bars. Kihei and Wailea are also home to some of Maui’s favorite beaches.

Of course there is the beach at the Wailea Beach Villas but then there are all the Kamaole or “Kam” beaches by Kihei.

Here's Shanon on one of the famous Kam beaches, with the gorgeous views of the West Maui Mouintains behind.

A great house is the South Maui Park Side Villa, which is family friendly and sits adjacent to a large oceanfront park with tennis courts and plenty of room for kids to play.

The home also has a private pool area in the backyard, so there is lots of fun to be had in and around the property. A favorite feature is the large living space upstairs with the billiards room, which is perfect for family fun in the evening.

While these homes and bungalows are on quiet streets, they are also walking distance from stores, restaurants and bars. You have the best of private Hawaiian vacation home living and being a “local” in one of Maui’s most authentic towns.

The long day of touring was capped off with a favorite Hawaiian treats – shave ice. Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice serves up the best on the islands many say, and the team agrees!
