Wailea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps only 2)

TRAVELERS: I WILL ACCEPT SHORTER RESERVATIONS!!

You will see that there is a 14 day minimum in High Season and a 7 night minimum in Regular Season. HOWEVER: I will accept shorter rentals IF they are between two existing reservations. For example, if you want to book 5 nights during Regular Season, and there are 5 nights between 2 EXISTING reservations, I CAN book your visit. If you want 10 nights in High Season, and there are 10 nights between EXISTING reservations, I can book you. BUT: The system requires that you choose 'FLEXIBLE DATES'' when you send the inquiry. Otherwise, the VRBO system will automatically exclude you from even reaching me). I hope I have made this clear but don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions! No worries!! Richard Andrews

Please check out our 'Guest Comments' and see what our guests have written in the Guest Book. For some reason, VRBO has guest reviews in 2 different places: 1) On the first page of my listing (where the bamboo forest picture is shown): look directly under the pictures and you will see boxes (Overview, Reviews, etc.) Click on "Reviews" to read 22 Guest Reviews. 2) There are also 128 other Guest Reviews that I transcribed from the Guest Books in the condo. To read them, go back to the boxes I just mentioned, and the 6th box from the right is "Owner Info". Click on that and you will see my picture, travel down the page past "Links to more information" and you will come across "Guestbook comments from owner." The first one is the most recent. VRBO omitted the dates on these comments and I am requesting that they replace the dates, dating back to 2001. These remarks are our best advertisement and if you stay with us you'll see them right there in the condo )

Here are just a few of the Guest Comments::

'Hi Richard, Your place surpassed our expectations! The layout is really open and spacious with lots of light. Very neat and clean. We enjoyed the extra little touches. Beach equipment and kitchen appliances made it fell like home. We appreciated all your help by email prior to our arrival. We truly had a great time and found it very relaxing.

You have helped to make our first trip to Maui memorable. Hope to come back soon. Cheers, A & D, Vancouver, BC, Cananda'

'Superb! We have been coming to Hawaii for many years, staying in houses, hotels, and condos. As far as condos are concerned, this is the best, bar none! Thank you for sharing Olu Olu with us, Richard. Beautifully appointed, well-equipped, great layout and location. Hawaii and Maui are still the best. We'll be back, hopefully in your condo. Mahalo!'

- Ev and Audrey V., Victoria, BC, Canada

'Can it get any better than this? I don't think so! Our initial impression was one of awe. Emily's first words were 'Can we rent this place next year?' Your set up for the condo immediately made us feel at home. While we did many activities here in paradise, I think our favorite one was just sitting on the lanai and drinking coffee while the sun rose. Thank you for sharing your condo with us!'

-Jim and Emily W, Tahlequah, Oklahoma

'We knew the minute we pulled into our own parking space at the condo that it was going to be GREAT! Everything was just as you described it and the pictures you have don't do it justice. The condo was clean and welcoming and what a wonderful location! Quiet and relaxing, we loved the golf course view, the birds and the wonderful Maui sounds. We thought the people in Maui were so nice and we really enjoyed talking with them. We went to a different beach everyday, walked to the shops and were very appreciative to have your VERY comfy bed! We returned home relaxed and can't wait to return. We will of course, come stay at your wonderful condo again. Thanks for sharing it with us.'

- William and Lisa B, Colorado

'Our 2nd visit inside 10 months - so good last time, we had to come back to Olu Olu; it's just like coing home again! You really do have a special place here and made all the more so with its relaxing decor and furnishings....All in all, another relaxing time spent in a very enjoyable, peaceful surroundings. Sure hope we can manage many more visits in time to come. All our regards.'

-M & J B., Auckland, New Zealand

'Richard, your home in Maui is superb. Our first visit to Maui was more than we could have imagined. It truly is 'Paradise'. We felt comfortable and 'at home' in the condo and it was wonderful to return to after 'hours on the beach.' Life doesn't get much better. And in the immortal words of A.S. (your Governor of California) 'I'll be back.' Mahalo'

-Daniel and Robin B, Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada

'Richard, we have just returned from Maui and I wanted to drop you a quick note just to say how much we enjoyed staying at your condo. It had absolutely everything we needed and more. We loved Maui so much that my husband is trying to convince me to return next March and if we do, we would love to stay at Olu Olu once again. I now underdstand what you mean by 'relax in Wailea', it was probably the most relaxing vacation we have taken in a long time (except for the trip along the west Maui mountain road which scared the #%@ out of us!). Anyway, we are considering what our travel plans will be for next year and if we do decide to return, I will be back in touch with you to check on the availability of Olu Olu. Mahalo'

- Gloria M, M, Ontario, Canada

DESCRPITION:

Imagine yourself sitting on the living room sofa or on the private lanai, overlooking the emerald green expanse of the beautiful Wailea Blue Golf Course, and beyond, the sunset, West Maui mountains and a bit of the ocean. Even though you are in the center of Wailea, you will neither hear nor see traffic.

We are most fortunate with the exact location and placement of this unit. If you come back to the unit in the heat of the day, the bedroom will be cool and shaded from the sun. Because our view is not directly west, in the living room/dining room/ kitchen, and on the lanai, you won't have the sunset glaring directly in your eyes, and yet you will be able to see some ocean, West Maui Mountains, etc. You can also leave the front door open all the time, for more air and light (there is a screen door) but maintain privacy because no one else walks by the front door.

This individually decorated and tropically appointed condo has two air-conditioners but because this is an end unit, every room (including both baths) has at least one (if not many) windows so you can enjoy the pure tropical breezes and hear the birds sing. [I believe the importance of good air circulation is often ignored, until you're stuck without it!.] If you want a comfortable, romantic, elegant, and private retreat, then this is the place for you.

We call our place Olu Olu, which means 'cool and comfortable' in Hawaiian. The Aloha Spirit is alive, palpable, and unforgettable. Come to Olu Olu, be our guests, and experience Paradise for yourself!

About Richard Andrews

I am a retired psychiatrist who lived in San Francisco for 35 years, until moving to Maui in 2008. San Francisco is still my favorite city in the world, but 'Maui no ka oi' (Maui is the best!). According to the stats, we have the best weather, year around, of any place on earth, and Kihei/Wailea/Makena have the best weather on Maui.

Richard Andrews purchased this condo in 2000

Why Richard Andrews chose Maui

I chose this condo in the Grand Champions in Wailea because the floor plan makes the unit seem much more spacious, especially for a one bedroom. - with 2 baths! The condo has beautiful views - of the golf course, West Maui mountains, and there is a partial ocean view. The Grand Champions is in the center of Wailea, and The Shops of Wailea, the big luxury hotels, superb restuarants, and most importantly, the fabulous beaches are all less then a 5 minute drive or a leisurely walk.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is called 'Olu Olu' which in Hawaiian means cool, refreshing, satisfied, happy, cordial, and gracious. These are the feelings that come to mind when staying here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Richard for a wonderful stay. Very comfortable and the kitchen was great. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants and beach visits. Mahalo!

Dear Richard,

We knew the minute we pulled into our own parking space at the condo that it was going to be GREAT! Everything was just as you described it and the pictures you have don't do it justice. The condo was clean and welcoming and what a wonderful location! Quiet and relaxing, we loved the golf course view, the birds and the wonderful Maui sounds. We thought the people in Maui were so nice and we really enjoyed talking with them. We went to a different beach everyday, walked to the shops and were very apprecitive to have your VERY comfy bed! We returned home relaxed and can't wait to return. We will of course, come stay at your wonderful condo again. Thanks for sharing it with us. William and Lisa Bosch

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo. It fit all of our needs. We enjoyed sunsets from the patio nightly and grilled by the pool a couple times. There is a security guard on-site in the evenings so, we felt extremely safe going for a night swim and relaxing in the hot tub. The condo was spotless when we arrived and was stocked with all of the necessities (i.e. pots, pans, plates, etc.). We highly recommend this rental and can't wait to come back!

Absolutely wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from this awesome condo after a 20 day vacation. What a great find! It is the best condo we have stayed at in our travels to the islands. Everything that you need is supplied by the owner. It is a very comfortable condo for 2 people. The bed is very comfortable. There is no need to use the AC as the breeze cools the condo off during the early evening. The highlight for us was the lanai. We had breakfast everyday on the lanai and really enjoyed our dinner and drinks on the lanai. There is no punishing sun to worry about with the north east exposure. It is a very quiet unit as well. The location is perfect as well. You are close to shopping, restaurants, the beaches and golf. We will definitely stay here again.

Excellent

Excellent location, clean and well maintained. Great base for Wailea area stay. Well equipped with everything needed for a fun stay. The owner is conscientious and even made a trip to replace a lightbulb quickly. We would come back here and stay again!
