Wailea 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.

We had a wonderful time, but too short. The villa was immaculate and the Wailea beaches and amenities create the best experience. A+

Incredible Property

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous time. The property is incredible. The place had everything. The property is located directly across the street from the Wailea Shopping Mall and right next to the Grand Wailea. The "Maui Escape" is just that. We will definitely refer our friends, and will definitely be back. Thank you Camille and Eric for allowing us to stay in your incredible place. 7/18/2016 - 7/24/2016 Jan, Lisa, Jill, A.J., Shane and Hannah

Chillin in Walea

  • 5 of 5

We spent another post 4th of July week at the Maui Escape in Walea....our second in a row. The Villa was not only spotless, but well equipped from shower amenities to boogie boards. The service at the location from check in through taking care of your needs at the beach were equally excellent. Eric and Camille were very easy to work with and responsive. We will be back again!

Amazing villa!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much at the Maui Escape! From the initial inquiry to a week after our stay, we have received excellent communication from Eric and Camille. They have been so flexible and accommodating to our requests. The villa is kept in immaculate condition (and I rent quite a few VRBO properties annually). Their bed linen and beds are comparable to the Westin Heavenly beds, so comfortable! The villa is well stocked and so convenient to all the amenities, literally less than 10 minute walk to the Shops at Wailea. And a short stroll down to the beach walk where you can walk to other hotels along Wailea for their restaurants, or just a scenic running path.

We went over summer and never felt it was busy at Wailea Beach Villas, we didn't have to fight for beach chairs or felt the pool was overcrowded. While other neighbor hotels looked overwhelmed with guests.

To top it off, their storage is stocked with beach chairs, boogie boards and coolers for you to use if you want to visit other beaches that require driving to.

We cannot find anything negative to stay about our trip. We will definitely be returning to the Maui Escape.

Incredible stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an incredible time staying here. The villa was beautiful and spacious and the location phenomenal - and we loved being on Wailea Beach. Camille and Eric were so accommodating with every little thing and hooked us up with Matt Morris, their concierge, who couldn't have been more helpful! We had a wonderful time and would definitely try to stay here again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

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!
