We enjoyed our stay in the Golden Mandarin Villa. Having everything available was wonderful.The T Family, 08/2015
The Golden Mandarin is the perfect setting for a spectacular vacation! We were expecting a lot and wow, got so much more than we imagined. Well-appointed, beautiful view, and exceptionally gracious staff. We are taking home many wonderful memories. Thank you for sharing your paradise! Some of us preferred hanging here rather than the Grand Wailea. The G Family, 03/2015
Beautiful home! Best prepared place we've ever had. Thanks and Mahalo! The R Family, 03/2015
We have been coming to Wailea for the past 15 years and the Golden Mandarin was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The Villa was exquisite and was stocked with every amenity imaginable. The service from Tropical Villa Vacations was top notch and they were always responsive in assisting with reservations and stocking our Villa with food before our arrival. The Golden Mandarin was large enough for our group of 6 with plenty of privacy for 3 couples. This Villa is walking distance to all of the major hotels, shopping, restaurants and the best snorkeling beach on Wailea. We can't wait to return! The B Family, Mahanattan Beach, CA. 2/2015
We had such an incredible time on our Thanksgiving vacation! You have a beautiful home and we appreciate all of the wonderful accommodations! Mahalo, The M Family,11/2014

We spent a wonderful week in paradise. The villa was magnificent and Maui was incredible, one of the most beautiful places in the world! It's a long trip from Washington, D.C. but it's worth every minute of it, with good fortune and time, we will return. It was a special holiday for our son's, their wives and the babies that are on the way. The B Family, 10/2012
Thank you for sharing your lovely home! This is our second stay at the Wailea Beach Villas and we are always impressed with everything it offers. An incredible two weeks! The M Family, 07/2012.

We enjoyed every aspect of your beautiful property. Thank you for all of the amenities. It made it so much easier to slip into vacation mode. Mahalo! The F Family, 12/2011

We have visited Maui many times, none as enjoyable as this one. The Ritz, Grand Wailea or the Four Seasons cannot compare. What an awesome family quality time we have enjoyed. We are returning in two weeks with the family members who could not join us this trip. Thank you for sharing you beautiful home. Mahalo with Love, The M Family, 07/2011
Aloha, Everything was perfect! Mahalo! The S Family, 07/2011
Heaven on earth! We enjoyed every minute of our week long stay here at the Golden Mandarin. This was our 4th visit to Maui but our first time at the Wailea Beach Villas. We've stayed at both the Four Seasons and the Ritz Carlton but this was by far our favorite! What a comfortable space and such a perfect location. We are so sad to leave but can't wait to return next year. We will definitely be making this an annual family vacation tradition. The K Family, 05/2011.
We did the math. This was our 9th trip to Maui. Four stays here at Wailea Beach Villas and our 2nd at Golden Mandarin. This week has been awesome. The weather could not have been more perfect. This condo is as good as it gets here on this island. Happy Easter! The C Family, 04/2011.
What a wonderful vacation we have had staying in your beautiful villa. The month's stay flew by because we were so comfortable and pleased with the surroundings inside and out. While here we celebrated two birthdays, once being our daughter's Sweet 16! Mahalo for letting us enjoy your beautiful home in paradise We love it here! THe C Family, 04/2011
Back again, second year in a row! We all agree that D102 is the most fabulous! The kids could spend all day in the plunge pool. The grown ups could spend all day on the lanai watching whales. A perfect vacation, returning home rested and sun-kissed. Can't wait to visit Paradise again next year! The D Family, 02/2011.
We have found paradise! Our families traveled from Southern California, Kansas City and Indianapolis to enjoy a week together in Maui and now we don't want to leave! We had considered staying at the Grand Wailea and are so happy that we found the Golden Mandarin Villa instead. The home is gorgeous and the details, down to beach toys for our 18-month old, are exceptional. As we sit out on the veranda to enjoy our last evening here, we all agreed that 5 days in this beautiful place is simply not enough. We hope to return soon! Mahalo for sharing your home with us. The N Family, 02/2011.
Wow! What a magical place! I have loved cooking in the well-equipped kitchen, having my morning coffee on the lanai and watching the stand-up paddleboarders, sleeping in the amazing bed and showering in the beautiful outdoor shower to name only a few delights! Please don't make me leave! Would you let me live here in the third bedroom and I could cook and clean for your guests, lol! The M Family, 09/2010
As I tend to be rather wordy and some say "long-winded", I will attempt to restrain myself from becoming too poetic, whimsical or even dramatic. If you could find a ring large enough to fit around this entire villa, I would marry it! As Ann of Green Gables once said to her best friend "You are truly a kindred spirit". Mahalo! The S Family, 09/2010.
This villa is beautiful. I never want to leave. The view is fantastic. From the moment I arrived, I thought WOW! This is a wonderful memory. I will never forget. The F Family, August 2010.
Thank you so much. We had such a fun trip here. Wonderful family time in this peaceful sanctuary. The S Family, 05/2010.

What a great vacation! Three years running and it gets better and better! The L Family, March 2010
Three years and still outstanding! "Love" this place! Health, hair and happiness everyone. The L Family, 03/2010
Three years and still fantastic! The L Family, 03/2010
Third year here and it never gets tiring. Thank you again for your hospitality. The L Family, 03/2010
So relaxing, I forgot what year it was! We loved the villa. Kids had a blast going to the beach, watching the luau, plunging in the pool, going for walks, etc. We'll miss the beautiful ocean view and warm winds. The G Family, 02/2010.
Our stay in Maui was perfect. The weather was the best we have ever experienced here. Our accommodations at D102 Golden Mandarin far exceeded our expectations. Only problem is that it is over. We had a wonderfu vacation and looking forward to our next visit! The W Family, Dec 2009
Amazing house. Amazing views. We love Maui! Wonderful vacation! The M Family, Nov 2009
Beautiful, beautiful place you have here! Absolutely loved the beds, might have to invest in some of those! We had a wonderful time, wish it didn't have to send so soon. P.S. Really liked the fireknife dancer that comes from deep within the Pacific! (at the luau that is visible from D102 Golden Mandarin) 08/09
We had a wonderful month here. The villa D102 is beautiful! The J Family, June 2009
This vacation has been so cool! We went to the Molokini snorkel, zipline, horseback riding. The J Family children, June 2009
From the moment we arrived and were toured through your beautiful home here in Maui, we have all had a fabulous vacation. Our families have created many, many wonderful memories here and much laughter as well. Tropical Villa Vacationshas been exceptional in handling all details and requests. Thank you for the use of your home to give us all a vacation of a lifetime. G Family, 03/2009
The Love's were back...another great vacation in paradise...thanks again, great two weeks...another great vacation in Hawaii...Hotel and staff were awesome. Great Hawaiian vacation. L Family, April 2009
We stayed in D102 and M311 from Feb 26 to March 7, 2009. Pre-arrival assistance from Tropical Villa Vacationswas very helpful and responsive. Excellent communication and excellent follow up. Both units exceeded our expectations. The beach accessories are a great touch. Concierge Yvonne is wonderful. Yes I plan to return to Maui and definitely will stay in a unit available through this agency. We are delighted with all of the aspects of the service and amenities your company and staff provided from initial contact for information right through to check out. Wonderful service. Excellent accommodation! R Family
Such a great place and such a great time. A week in Maui we will never forget. P Family, 01/2009
We had a marvelous time - the weather was perfect and this unit can't be beat. Back to Oregon weather (sigh...). W Family, 12/2008
Four generations spent Mother's Day here at this awesome place. The youngest was 3 1/2 and oldest was 86 1/2. A gift from my 36 year old daughter. I know now why they call this place paradise, the beach, the view, the flowers are exquisite. The villa could not be more perfect. We are sad to be returning to Oklahoma. Thank you for making a dream come true. B Family 5/2008
We were blessed to bring our mom here for Mother's Day! We had a fantastic time. Thanks for sharing your home to us. We will be back! B/R Family 5/2008
The Love Family from Canada were back! We are addicted. What a fabulous place. Many more great memories. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Thank you so much for getting us a great place. I never want to leave. These few days have been fantastic. we have gotten such great service. I don't want to go home. Wow, what an awesome place. I enjoyed it so much! L Family 03/2008
We celebrated our dad's 60th here and enjoyed a week of bliss - Aloha style! The villa is top notch - fully appointed and we never wanted for a thing! We loved your kitchen and had a beautiful breakfast on the lanai every morning. What a spectacular place! Thank you for allowing us to spend a week in paradise here - we made wonderful family memories here. We can't wait to be back. The S Family 12/2007
Thank you so much for your suggestion of the most lovely condo (villa apartment), it was the best condo we have ever stayed in. Tropical Villa Vacations staff are truly a nice group of women, and offered us much comfort in knowing we were taken care of. Just wanted to thank you and your company (Tropical Villa Vacations) for a great holiday. Dr. W. 08/2007
Our expectations were surpassed. The K family 07/07.
We usually stay at the Kea Lani when we come to Maui. We thought we would try these new villas. We're hooked! What a beautiful home! I'm sure we will be back. The S Family 4/07.
Overheard in the port-cochere at the Wailea Beach Villas 04/2007...."The Four Seasons isn't as nice now that we've stayed here"!
The service was awesome! Thank you! Absolutely gorgeous!! The amenities were fantastic. Everything we needed in the unit. It was one of the best trips we have had. We now have to go back to snow! Thank you for opening your house to us. P.S. Yvonne and the staff here were great. The L Family 3/07
From the minute we walked into this beautiful villa we knew it was going to be a week in paradise! Thank you so much! Lots of wonderful family memories were made. The J Gang 3/2007
Of the many years (25) and the many different islands, hotels, resorts, condos...we can honestly say this was our best trip, our most excellent "accommodations". Bob & Donna have done a great job on their condo...We thought we would think about changing religion (love the Buddhas!). How often can you experience 4 luau's in one week free? The R. Family 2/2007
A special trip to celebrate for our family. A 40th wedding anniversary, an 8 year old birthday and a break from freezing temperatures back home. Our weather was a little windy and we had some rain but your home made riding out the weather a pleasure. Great whale watching! We look forward to making our way back again soon. The L Family 1/2007
Our first trip to Maui. What an experience! Your lovely home made this an unbelievable time. We are headed back to ice and snow in Wichita, KS what a dread that is. Thank you for sharing your home. The T Family 1/2007
Of the 15 plus times we have been to Maui, we liked staying here at the Wailea Beach Villas best. We thoroughly enjoyed your beautifully appointed home. Many thanks to Yvonne for fabulous recommendations (turtle project), breakfast luau, etc. We had a terrific time. Thank you! S. Family 12/2006
This was the first trip to Maui for my husband and I, and we will be back in February for the whales. This has been the most fabulous trip we've ever been on. The Golden Mandarin made our trip that much more special. It's definitely PARADISE! The G Family 09/2006.
Restful, quite comfortable listening to the ocean's surf from the open wall vista provided by your beautiful home. This is a terrific place. The J Family 08/2006.
The villa was comfortable. We loved opening the doors and enjoying the outside. The walk along the beach is refreshing. Everyone has been helpful and friendly. Our stay has been wonderful. The C Family 07/2006.
