These exclusive privileges are ONLY available to you if you rent from an owner that has been accepted by The Grand Wailea's rental program. You no longer have to choose between a luxury home or a resort, as this villa combines the best features of both!

When searching for a nice place to stay in Wailea on Maui's sunny south side, you'll have many great choices. There are very nice beach front resorts, such as the iconic Grand Wailea Resort, and some very nice privately owned residences. In most cases, you'll need to choose between the two options. Fortunately, you've just found the best of both! We've combined all of the services and amenities of the fabulous Grand Wailea Resort with a professionally designed and spacious three bedroom home. You'll experience the best home at Ho'olei while enjoying all of the benefits of being a guest at The Grand Wailea Resort.

This spectacular three bedroom, three and a half bath, 3,500 square foot, two level home is nestled on the South side of Ho’olei, in a very private, quiet cul-de-sac bordered by the Wailea Blue Golf Course and a lush green belt. The location is special - free of noise and rooflines in your view scape. As you gaze across green belt, the view of the deep blue Pacific Ocean view is breathtaking. Between the palms, waves gently break on one of the best beaches in the world. From either your upper or lower lanai, seated comfortably on one of the chaise lounge chairs, watch the sun set below on the water. Twinkling lights and dramatic cloud formations constantly change the view over the West Maui Mountains and Lanai in the distance.

After dinner, enjoy a movie while lounging on the comfortable living room furniture. Cove lighting glows in the high ceilings while the brilliant 52” LCD entertainment center with powerful surround sound system playing your favorite Blu-Ray DVD movie. This is absolutely better than a movie theatre! Still up for a little TV after the movie? Play your favorite show that you recorded on the high definition DVR while you were at the beach. After all that high tech entertainment, how about an old-fashioned board or card game – we’ve included it all in your villa!

Dinner with friends and family as you watch the Maui sunset, a fabulous Blu- ray high-def movie and a lively card game, you must be tired! Ride downstairs in your private elevator and retire to one of the master suites. A super plush, California king, Vera Wang pillow top bed awaits you. Connect your iPod to the Bose Wave Radio and play some soothing music. Thick carpeting, dimmed lighting and climate control for the bedrooms create the ambiance for slumber. Our guests have commented that they've never slept better.

When you awake to begin your next day in paradise, enjoy the dual, rain shower or soaking tub in the spacious master bath. Before going upstairs to greet your guests, enjoy a cup of coffee on the lower lanai and watch the birds play on the grassy preserve.

If you must connect with work, go right ahead and log onto the Internet via your complimentary in-Villa wireless network. Free local and toll free landline service is provided complete with wireless telephones. The Wailea community has excellent cell phone reception as well.

Time to experience one of Maui’s fabulous beaches? Your Modern Maui villa contains everything you need; boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, beach towels, and a cooler are ready for your crew. Load your vehicle in the convenient attached garage or call the Ho’olei front desk and a complimentary shuttle will take you across the street to the beach. If a spectacular pool is more to your liking, Ho’olei has one of the best. The stunning pool includes lava rock formations, an amazing 19-foot waterfall and two whirlpools. Kids will enjoy the sandy splash pool and will probably talk you into bringing them under the dramatic waterfall! Ample umbrella covered lounge chairs and private sitting areas are all over the spacious pool area. Even during busy times, the Ho’olei pool area is always peaceful. Complimentary coffee, iced tea and newspapers, towel service, a fully equipped gym and sauna complete the experience.

Time for a nice dinner in a five star restaurant? Wailea is known for it’s excellent restaurants. Many are within walking distance of your Ho’olei villa. Our concierge will be happy to make the arrangements for you. Need some retail therapy? The Shops at Wailea are just across the street and offer an impressive selection of international and local specialty retailers and restaurants.

We’ve arranged a great discount for those seeking a day of golf on one of the best courses in the world. Spa Grande at The Grand Wailea is a quick shuttle ride away and will provide you and your guests with soothing therapy in an ideal setting. You may charge your Spa Grande or restaurant purchases to your villa account if you wish.

When shopping for a vacation rental home at Ho'olei, please keep in mind that each home is individually owned. This means that there will be differences in the furnishings, amenities, kitchen equipment and design. Photos are important - look for the details in furniture quality, tasteful wall colors, dimmed lighting and entertainment systems. Also, ask if your family is allowed to join in on the fun and amenities at the Grand Wailea Resort. This access is important, as the Grand Wailea staff serves as Ho'olei's concierge, maintenance and transportation provider. If the Ho'olei unit you are considering is not in the rental program, as ours is, you will not be able to experience these important benefits.

About Ken Hawkins

We own an interior design firm in Southern California and see this home as an extension of our business. We believe that 'everything speaks' and are constantly working to improve the home, so that our valued guests will want to return year after year.

We are original Ho'olei owners and fell in love with this property well before the first building was completed. Being able to offer our guests access and use of a beautiful beach front resort while staying in our home is what 'sealed the deal' for us. Sharing this the experience of beautiful design and impeccable service from our resort partner makes us very happy. Aloha!

Ken Hawkins purchased this villa in 2009

Why Ken Hawkins chose Wailea

Ho'olei is the newest development in Wailea, the master planned community in sunny South Maui. Surrounded by impeccable golf courses, great restaurants, shopping and the best beaches in the world, the location cannot be beat. In addition to the great location, our home is built with the best materials with a fantastic interior design. The gated Ho'olei community includes an amazing pool complete with a 19 foot waterfall for our guests.

What makes this villa unique

Grand Wailea Resort access and use of all facilities! This unique benefit means that you and your family will be treated just as if you are staying at the Grand Wailea Resort during your stay in our home. Only a limited number of Ho'olei owners may offer this exclusive benefit to their guests. No other development on Maui has this unique benefit.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home. We loved everything – the views, the location, the accommodations simply do not compare (spectacular) and the hospitality of the staff here at Ho’olei is wonderful. It will be hard to ever stay anywhere else. Visiting Maui…the best vacation yet!”

Excellent Experience- Villa Distinguished by Premium/Custom Furnishings, Supplied Amenities+Location

  • 5 of 5

We just had a great stay at this villa. It is distinguished from other villas by several factors: (1) location, (2) outstanding custom furnishings, and (3) very well stocked kitchen supplies and beach goods. Of course, it comes with access to all of the Grand Wailea activities, which is critical. Location is great- quiet but yet walkable to community pool + the hotel pool-- up one street on one side, with a clear view of water/mountains, and the hotel only on the side; large lawn area (part of golf course) provides convenient spot for kids and serene setting (instead of other villas). Furnishings are clearly heads-and-shoulders better than what official Grand Wailea/Ho'olei photo gallery shows of other villas -- besides better aesthetics, furniture is clearly much better quality than the typical wicker featured elsewhere-- especially the chairs and couches. Kitchen-- comes with every possible kitchen utensil/tool imaginable, very convenient. Having the 3 boogie boards and 3 beach umbrellas and 4 or 5 beach chairs provided by the owners was also immensely helpful when we went out.

The Ho'olei staff is also excellent-- attentive, flexible and prompt. We had a very personalized experience with great service both before our stay and during our stay with the excellent staff. The Ho'olei pool w/waterfall and gym facilities, while certainly smaller than the Grand Wailea's, provided a nice respite and tranquil retreat away from the craziness of the other side (so we often came here at the end of each day during twilight hours). The convenience of the drive-in garage and elevator was critical to us (my dad gets around slowly with a walker), and made for a great vacation for us. It was nice to be able to run over to the Grand Wailea for the activities (note the lazy river, slides and fishpipe for the kids; the art/photo lessons for the adults, beautiful sunrise and sunsets from the beach) but yet also have the privacy and personal service of the villa (and Hoolei staff) even in the middle of peak season. Lastly, I should note that the owner was a pleasure to deal with.

Incredible time on Maui--and you will not find a nicer place to stay. Spacious, beautifully decorated, every detail considered. Kitchen is particularly well supplied.

Having the Grand Wailea a very short walk away is a bonus, although it's perfect to come "home" to Ho'Olei--it feels so secluded and quiet at the end of the day. The views from the lanai are breathtaking. We will be back!

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo/townhouse was just beautiful. We were two families who travelled from Australia for our family vacation. The is a lovely five star property with every luxury you will need. We just loved it.

The condo was ready when we arrived, after a long flight with children this was important to us. The condo was clean and the furnishing and appliances were the best quality you can get. My husband loved the kitchen.

We had 4 children ages 4, 5, 6 & 10, so the space was perfect, plenty of room for the children. It was great having there own room with 2 double beds and own bathroom with flat screen TV. The children loved using both pools, especially the water slides.

We really enjoyed coming back at the end of day and sitting on the patio admiring the fabulous views. After Modern Maui we went to Waikiki and we wished we had stayed here on our second week to just relax. We also enjoyed Waikiki but found it very very busy. Nothing can compare to staying at Modern Maui, just amazing.

We are looking forward to coming back next year and would recommend this property to others.

An amazing Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible vacation we had. Our family just returned from 9 nights at the Modern Maui Ho'Olei. After reading the other reviews and looking at the pictures I wasnt sure the Modern Maui would live up to our expectations....and it didnt - it was even better. The condo/townhouse was beautiful. The space was perfect, plenty of room and ammenities for a true 5 star stay. Our children, ages 13, 10 and 6 loved the elevator and having their own rooms with private bath and flat screen tv's. The views from the main level were majestic, sitting on the patio watching the sunset was always the perfect end to a perfect day.

The Ho'olei resort is a perfect location on Maui. The kids enjoyed the short walk to the Ho'olei pool and to the waterslides at the Grand Waleia resort. We spent most of our vacation touring the island, taking surf lessons and enjoying incredible snorkeling spots. After a busy day we loved returning to the Ho'olei to relax by the pool or venture across the street for a sunset cocktail on the beach.

Our favorite restaurant in Waliea was the MonkeyPod - excellent atmoshpere with great food. We also spent a few nights dining in nearby Paia - Flatbreads was our favorite restaurant in this adorable cool surf town.

Overall Maui was a perfect family vacation destination and staying at the Modern Maui at the Ho'olei was worth every dollar. We have been home for 3 days and the kids are already asking when are we going back! For anyone considering a vacation in Maui i wouldnt look any further. Perfect island and perfect upscale accomodations to relax in.

Modern Ho'olei is spectacular!! Beyond our expectations. Each of us "oooo'ed and aaahhh'd" as we toured the unit. The view is the best of the complex and the unit is decorated to perfection. I hope to return and would not stay at any other unit.
