Sandcastles Suite L509 is a top floor 4 bedroom 3 bath luxury villa residence featuring all new decor, paint, carpets, furnishings, art, and living amenities. In 2014, we recently upgraded L509 again, with additional new original wall art in the entry and living room areas by Hawaii artists Suzie Papanikolas and Nadine, along with crystal pendants over the kitchen island, more colorful decor in the kitchen and great room, and new colorful basket weave linen down-filled pillows on the living room sofa. In all of Hawaii, Sandcastles Suite L509 is one of the most spectacular private residences available for visitor accommodations in a resort setting. Certainly, L509 Sandcastles Suite is one of the very best of the "Wailea Beach Villas", with a guaranteed TOP FLOOR (5th) location, exceptionally attractive decor, complimentary daily housekeeping, original elegant oil paintings, and other vintage hand-crafted art. For entertainment, this newly updated and upgraded villa provides five state of art super-thin televisions with HDTV digital cable programming, and five CD/DVD players, iPod docks, and unlimited NETFLIX and PANDORA downloads. There is also a XBOX 360 with KINECT for youngsters to enjoy after a day at the beach. There is also a fully stocked laundry room with an array of complimentary laundry supplies, a Stainless Viking gas BBQ grill on a spacious covered alfresco veranda, and high thread-count sumptuous pure cotton bed and bath linens. There is seating for eight guests at both the indoor and outdoor dining tables. The photos of the outdoor dining area show just six seats, however please know that this table can be enlarged to comfortably seat eight to ten guests for romantic ocean view dining. The living room was created so that eight guests may sit together in comfort to enjoy conversation or to watch a movie together. You are guaranteed the specific residence, decor, location, and view as represented on this individual property display, including the priceless panoramic ocean seascape that makes staying at Sandcastles Suite an extraordinary experience. Situated on the top floor, this is a true "Penthouse" villa with expansive and superlative panoramic Pacific Ocean and Wailea Beach views. This elegantly contemporary residence boasts over 3,300 square feet of indoor and outdoor prime living space with 4 bedrooms with new ultra-lux mattresses (King, California King, Queen, Queen). One of the four bedrooms doubles as a private office space that can be closed off from the great room by mahogany paneled french doors. L509 has 3 full bathrooms. The color palette in the great room, master bedroom and third bedroom all share a variety of warm seaside tones including gold, sand, creme, light and dark browns, vanilla, yellow, light green, silver and copper. Off the great room is a large ocean view outdoor alfresco veranda with lounge chairs, a dining table that is instantly adjustable to seat six or eight guests, and a Viking stainless gas grill. The ocean views from the veranda are stunning - enjoy a broad panorama of the big blue Pacific Ocean including Maui's famous sunsets! We created Sandcastles Suite to rival the elegant but subdued ambiance of the Club Floor Lounge of the nearby Four Seasons Wailea. The travertine great room floors were recently polished to a high shine to help reflect Maui's golden sunshine inside the villa. The furnishings are an exceptional and eclectic blend of tropical touches with contemporary and traditional pieces artfully blended to create an exceptional environment for discerning travelers. Eight guests can dine in elegant surroundings indoors at the hand-carved outrigger canoe shape dining table. Inside the canoe table, and viewable through the oversized beveled glass table top is an artful array of polished sea shells! An additional 4 guests can dine at the kitchen island on comfortable padded swivel bar stools. Along the wall in the dining room is a set of four sea shell designs each hand-embroidered on silk and set in mirrored frames. The frames and the droplet crystal chandelier set over the dining table reflect an abundance of light. All of the design elements work together to create a bright and sunny living space. All of the decor in L509 is unique and the best possible quality available in the islands. The kitchen is one of our favorite rooms to talk about. There is an espresso machine, 2 traditional drip coffee makers with thermal carafes, two refrigerators, 2 beverage drawers, double freezer, built-in microwave, convection range, Bosch dishwasher, and a ceramic glass Ceran cooktop. For those who enjoy cooking fresh food, the kitchen offers every type of small appliance one can think of, including an array of quality crystal glassware, plate-ware, and service ware. You are invited to make use of the waffle-maker, juicer, blender, toaster oven, mixer, rice cooker, popcorn popper, spices/herbs and other conveniences stocked in L509.
