Maui Villa Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Rates as low as $700 per night! Our villa offers an incredible location with a view of the pool and beautiful surroundings from the lanai and a staircase that leads directly down to the pool area and the path to the beach.

The Wailea Beach Villas nest in a sea of colorful plumerias and hibiscus, cascading waterfalls, two inviting pools, and beautiful tropical paths that lead to Wailea Beach and Hawaii's most incredible oceanside boardwalk.

'The Maui Escape', also referred to as 'Penthouse 110' is located with views of the upper pool and the spectacular garden surroundings. It provides the perfect combination of being close enough to view the pool but far enough for privacy. At night the ambiance from the lanai is breathtaking with incredible landscape lighting and tiki-torches scattered throughout the myriad of walking paths around the pool and spa area.

The Wailea Beach Villas are situated on 11 unparalleled and beautiful acres of lush, tropical landscaping while nestled between the Grand Wailea to the south, the Marriott Resort to the north, the 'Shops at Wailea' (which is considered to be the finest and most exclusive shopping location on the islands) to the east, and of course, the world renowned Wailea Beach and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

Take a short stroll and visit the elegant 50,000 square foot spa at the Grand Wailea, recognized as one of the top 10 spas in North America. Also visit one of the many fine restaurants at the 'Shops' including Longhi's, Ruth's Chris Steak House or Tommy Bahama's Tropical Café.

Our three bedroom, two bathroom luxurious unit, with more than 2,200 square feet of well-planned living space that includes over 280 square feet of lanai, offers an array of unique appointments such as custom wood shutters, granite and hard wood finishes, eye-catching art, elegant bath and bed linens, and honed marble floors with well-chosen decorative carpets.

The Living Room has a Samsung HD 60" Flat Screen Television with a DVD/CD player and multiple movies to choose from. There's also a RedBox video outlet a short walk away at the Shop's of Wailea for more movies to choose from.

We have a beautiful cherry wood queen size Murphy bed in den. The room includes 6 louvered sliding doors for privacy or for an open study area.

A Cordon Bleu chef would be delighted with the accoutrements provided in the well-equipped kitchen…a Gaggenau range top, two Sub-Zero refrigerators complete with beverage and freezer drawers, Thermador stainless steel convection oven with microwave, and a Viking gas grill on the lanai just to name a few. A private chef and shopping service is also available by request.

Complete with security personnel, this gated vacation paradise also offers two outdoor whirlpool spas and a fitness center with locker rooms and showers. With 'aloha' spirit the friendly staff provides towels, beach umbrellas, and lounges at pool side or on the beach.

Assistance or any personal needs can be directed to your concierge in any of the following venues -sightseeing tours, including helicopter, jet, and private boat charter; golf tee-times; sailing, scuba diving, kayaking and snorkeling excursions; in-house massage; baby sitting services; dinner reservations; a family photographer to record your memories and so much more.

About Eric and Camille Peterson

I was born and raised on Oahu and several times a year we would take the 'long' 30 minute flight to Maui to visit my grandparents who lived in Kula. My husband grew up spending much of his vacation time snow skiing in the mountains, from Tahoe to Yosemite. We spent our honeymoon in our cottage in Makena and love spending time in the mountains and in Maui...but mostly Maui! I've convinced my husband that traveling up to the top of Haleakala crater is like going to the mountains:) We live in San Diego where we raised our two kids. Stephen (20) and Katelin (19) have spent summer vacations in Maui ever since they were born. We know you'll love 'The Maui Escape' at the Wailea Beach Villas as it truly is a piece of Heaven on Earth!!

Camille and Eric Peterson, San Diego, CA

Eric and Camille Peterson purchased this villa in 2007

Why Eric and Camille Peterson chose Maui

We chose to purchase one of the Wailea Beach Villas because it is the most beautiful resort in Maui! We love sunny South Maui and Wailea Beach. We also love the fact you are within walking distance of many incredible restaurants and the Shops at Wailea, yet the Beach Villas provide much more privacy and living space than a resort hotel...not to mention a gormet kitchen for those times you want to barbeque on the lanai or simply have a family meal in the villa.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa overlooks the pool and beautiful tiki torch lit surroundings. We have a staircase that leads directly to the pool's a two minute walk to Wailea Beach and a two minute walk to the Shops of Wailea. There are five world class golf courses within a few miles of the villa and two tennis clubs. We are next door to the Grand Wailea which offers one of the finest spas and terme facilities in the world!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife Lori and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary during this stay. This was our second time staying with you in your beautiful place. If it is even possible, we had an even better time on this stay. After 35 years with me - my wife has earned it. :-)

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy such a wonderful time together. We hope to stay with you again in the future.

First-Class Five-Star Penthouse with Outstanding Owners!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! What a fantastic property with the most gracious, warm and accommodating owners ever! From our first inquiry through all our planning, unexpected weather delay, late arrival and entire stay, Eric and Camille were easily accessible and responsive to all of our questions, requests, and needs. They were great at communicating with us and making sure we had all the necessary information before we left on our trip. Eric and Camille have done a fabulous job of creating a very detailed welcome packet that made it very easy to use and fully enjoy everything the penthouse and the Wailea Beach Villas property has to offer. The onsite staff members were also very kind and helpful.

The penthouse is gorgeous, well maintained, super clean, spacious, has excellent linens, comfortable beds and is located in an ideal location on Maui. The kitchen is well-stocked and appointed with great appliances. We stayed during Spring break and all the adjoining resorts were packed and seemed a bit chaotic and noisy. We did not experience any noise or chaos at The Maui Escape. We were always able to get lounge chairs easily at the beautiful beach or pool anytime of the day. The grounds of the entire property are absolutely beautiful...everything you expect when going to Hawaii.

Our two boys (ages 9 and 12) also had a great time here. The villa is well-stocked with lots of kid/beach paraphernalia...boogie boards, sand toys, snorkeling gear, etc. They loved watching the fire dancers at the Marriott which is located just north of the property. And, as an added bonus, we got to see whales migrating as we walked along the beach path one evening. We even saw one whale do a full breach out of the water...very cool!

We were very impressed by the locals genuine hospitality everywhere we went. There are many wonderful local restaurants across the entire island both near and more distant to check out. We especially liked Paia Fish Market in Kehei, Mama's Fish House and Ululani's Shaved Ice. The boys also loved Lappert's Ice Cream at the Wailea Shops next door. There were many more great places we didn't have time to try. So, we will have to try them next time!

I could continue to go on and on about what a great trip and experience we had while staying at The Maui Escape. I will end this review by summarizing: EXCEPTIONAL PROPERTY, GREAT OWNERS, PERFECT LOCATION, LOTS OF FUN AND QUIET RELAXATION. The Maui Escape was everything we hoped it would be and much more!

Great family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa for 5 nights with our two children aged 13 and 9. We arrived late in the evening and the gate house had our keys so we were able to go straight to the villa. The villa is on the ground floor, but still elevated above the pool. It is spacious and in great condition overall. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen, laundry and great bedrooms. Pretty much everything you need from groceries, to restaurants to shopping is within easy walking distance. We enjoyed walking on the path along the coast at night and our children had a blast on the beach during the day. The gym and the pool are not very big, but were never crowded and were well maintained. Highly recommended for families that want/need more living space, but still want to stay in a high-end luxury development with direct access to the beach.

An incredible vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Maui Escape! The property is beautiful with beachfront access, swimming pools and well landscaped grounds. It is also across the street from the Shops of Wailea with many different excellent restaurants to choose from. The villa itself is well maintained, beautifully decorated, and in great condition. It was well stocked with different spices, condiments, dishes, cooking utensils, and top of the line appliances. We also really appreciated the personal touches of a welcome phone call from the owner, and the owner making special arrangements to allow a later checkout due to our flight being delayed. Their flexibility turned a bad situation into a bonus day in paradise! We would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking to book a memorable and relaxing vacation.

This Villa was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed every minute of our vacation time spent in this property. The "staff" was also very co-operative. We are hoping to return to the amazing Wailea Beach Villa's and this one in particular one day soon. Thanks to the Peterson's for having us.

A true slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we entered the grounds, we loved it. The unit is spectacular. Pristinely kept, it was better than we had anticipated. The photos really don't do it justice. The colors are soothing and all the touches are subtly Hawaiian. Everything you could want was there. The kitchen is so well set up. We loved the adult pool and beach and how kind and helpful the attendants were...always chairs and umbrellas, ice water and sunscreen. We felt very pampered. We are anxious to return.

This was our second time staying here and once again it did not disappoint. Beautiful large condo in a fantastic resort. The grounds are amazing with lush plants and trees. Short walk to the beach and the beachside adult pool. Condo itself it very clean and very well appointed with all the amenities you might need. Also directly across the street from Shops at Wailea with plenty of very good restaurants near by. This property is hard to beat and when we return to Maui we will definitely come back here.
