How to Ensure You Enjoy Your Time in Wailea

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 at 12:33 am

Wailea continues to have one of the lowest crime rates of any resort community in the state, especially considering our density of residential, commercial and hotel properties along with 5 of the busiest beaches on the island.  This can be attributed to our Wailea Patrol, various resort securities, and the resort communications network of the WCA Safety & Risk Committee.

However, occasionally there may be some determined criminals in the area that can cause harm to property and possibly persons.  Here are some tips for keeping you and your property safe.


Most criminals seek out unoccupied homes, but they will also go for the easy access like unlocked doors.

  •  Make sure you close and lock all doors and sliding lanai doors.
  • Lock your windows.
    • If you have a multi-position windows make sure they are secured in the smallest open position.
    • Don’t forget to close your louvers/jalousies
    • Install motion sensors for your outdoor lights.
    • Do not  open your door if you hear sounds outside
    • Do not leave any valuables (purses, computers, cameras, etc.) in plain view from windows.
    • Call 911 immediately to alert police.
    • If leaving your home for any period of time close and lock all windows and doors.


Generally when there is crime at the Beach Parks it occurs in the parking lots.

  •  Make sure you or your guests lock all car doors.
  • Do not leave items exposed in the back seat.
  • Do not move items into the trunk of their car in plain view.
  • Do not place car keys in a magnetic “hide-a-key” under a wheel well while in plain view.
  • Do not assume that you are not being watched, look around and double check to make sure that all the car doors are locked before you walk away.  If you have expensive items, or items you just don’t want to lose, move them into the trunk before you leave for the beach OR DON’T BRING THEMDo not load these items into your trunk while parked at the beach parking lot.
  • If you see someone sitting in their vehicle and they look suspicious:
    • Let them know that you see them.  Look at them straight in the eyes, smile and wave.
    • Then casually make a note of their vehicle description and license plate number before heading to the beach.


If you feel that someone may be committing a crime

Call the Maui Police at 244-6400.

Andaz Maui Set to Open Summer 2013 Throughout high season, one of the most popular questions among visitors of the Wailea resort has been: “When is the new Andaz going to open?” And according to a spokesperson representing the luxury resort, the objective is to open in July. As the Andaz brand of Hyatt luxury resorts continues to grow, the Andaz Maui at Wailea will be one its crown jewels. The new resort is to encompass 297 rooms and 19 luxury villas – 12 of which are offered for sale, with speculation that the remaining 7 will either be kept by the resort for accommodating visiting dignitaries/high-profile guests or will be sold on a secondary phase – across 15 acres of the most sought-after real estate in Wailea. According to the announcement: “From the design features and superior service, to the stunning ocean views and relationships in the community, the Hawaiian spirit will be infused throughout the resort, inviting guests to arrive as vacationers and leave as ‘ohana,’ or family.” And from the looks of it, this Andaz property will be in a league of its own – all within a resort that is dedicated to hosting some of the best resorts in the world, including the Grand Wailea and the Four Seasons Maui at Wailea

Maui Auto Club

Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 12:08 am


We’re inviting you to become members of an exciting new service here on Maui. As you know, there is no service tailor made to the needs of people with vehicles here on Maui. How do you get from the airport to your car? Is the car ready to be driven when you arrive? Is it washed and detailed with all the proper legal documentation? Do the tires have air? Is the battery charged? Is the gas tank full? Does the vehicle need to be serviced? Do any repairs need to be done? In almost all cases we have come across, customers are left to fend for themselves in taking care of these items. Well, “NO MORE” is the collective cry from the Maui Auto Club.

We will meet you at the airport with your own car when you arrive on Maui. The vehicle will be washed, detailed, new oil and filter, gassed up, battery charged, tires filled with air, and completely legal. All access to your vehicle will be handled through your property or resident manager or in a way that you, the customer, feel safe and secure. When you are ready to leave the island, your Maui Auto Club rep will follow you to the airport and return your vehicle back to its Maui home. With 24 hour roadside assistance included with any package, we feel secure that we have the services to help you with all of your transportation needs.

Please, call or email us for any questions you may have.

Thank You for your consideration,

Maui Auto Club LLC
