Home Disclosures

  • Neighboring properties have swimming pools that are built into the ground without a fence or cover. Use of the neighboring pools and hot tubs is not allowed. The properties in this area share one large common lawn. It is imperative that guests of Wailea Sunset Bungalow self-monitor any and all outdoor activity, particularly for young children. Please keep young children from straying off the property and please keep anyone who does not swim away from the neighboring pools and hot tubs.
  • Another private home known as the Wailea Sunset Estate is immediately adjacent to the Wailea Sunset Bungalow. The two dwellings are in close proximity to one another and we cannot say they are exclusively private from each other. A modest amount of landscaping will provide some fairly good separation. Guests of the Bungalow do not have use of the pool or spa at the adjacent Wailea Sunset Estate property. They are separate properties rented to separate guests.
  • Although recently refurbished this is not new construction. This is a vintage cottage. We make every effort to provide comfortable furniture, abundant electronics, and useful amenities within the setting of an original 1960 era beach cottage.
  • On-site maintenance for interior plant care is performed weekly.
  • Please expect ambient audible living noises. From time to time a neighbor may host a party or the voices of children playing or some music may be audible from a nearby residence.
  • This home is located in a quiet residential area. Quiet hours are from 9pm to 8am.
  • The grass lawns surrounding the property are trimmed and mowed with a motorized machine once each week. The mower may be audible.
  • The shoreline in front of the property is pebbly. It may be most comfortable to use foot protection when entering the water. Ocean access may not always be safe due to varied ocean conditions.
  • Over towards the Polo Beach area an off-shore undertow has been reported a few times in the past. Always swim with a buddy and never turn your back to the ocean. Guests agree to use caution and common sense and to always enter the ocean when the conditions are calm, and to enjoy all sports and activities at their own risk.
