About Cynthia

This incredible unit is owned by a family that loves enjoying the Maui sun. We are scattered from California to Montana and Colorado and love taking our families and children to the island. We love the gentle waves of Ulua and Keawakapu beaches which are minutes from the front door. Or watching the older kids braving the waves at Big Makena (Big Beach). The unit overlooks the pool which is great for families. We look forward to sharing our slice of paradise with YOU!

Cynthia purchased this condo in 2003

Why Cynthia chose Maui

Wailea is ideally located in South Maui where the weather is nearly perfect every day. Great whale watching from January through April from the nearby beaches or even the lanai at times. Walking distance to world class beaches, resorts, shopping, and dining. The Palms at Wailea offers colorful and beautifully manicured grounds and atmosphere.

What makes this condo unique

We love morning walks or runs along the beach path that snakes along the waterfront. Then a breakfast on the lanai before heading to our favorite beaches for a day of reading, swimming, walking in the surf, and basking in the warm Maui rays! Then coming home for an afternoon nap on the lanai and then out to dinner at our favorite restaurants or grilling on the lanai while watching the famous Maui sunsets. Listening to the neighbor blow the conch shell at the moment the sun drops below the horizon is a tradition.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely beautiful...great escape from the winter in Colorado...Your unit is wonderful, comfortable and we love the close proximity to the pool. Explored several new beaches all within a few minutes drive. I'll be contacting you to schedule next year's visit. Thanks.

Great place to stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th stay at this condo and we are already booked for's like our second home! The location is ideal with its ground floor walk-out to the lanai (all new lanai furniture this year) and the pool only steps away. Well-equipped kitchen and great for entertaining. We had 12 for dinner on the lanai last year with place settings and seating for everyone.

We highly recommend this condo for both couples and families.

As advertised, Cynthia's unit at Palms is fabulous. The complex is situated just south of Kihei with all its beaches and shopping, yet is super quiet with a view of the ocean and is close to the beautiful Wailea beaches. #1305 is in the first cluster immediately after entering the condo complex with a reserved parking spot right in front.. The ground level 2-bdrm. unit is huge and the patio so spacious! The warm pool (immaculate) is steps away and lush gardens surround the patio for privacy.

pros: well-maintained grounds, unit is well-appointed with numerous upgrades and maintained by a very responsive on-island contact (Mike), strict pool rules ensure an enjoyable time for everyone, excellent AC system throughout, superior quality beds and linens, high-end furnishings, plentiful and quality dishware, kitchen is stocked with spices, food storage containers and more, the washer/dryer are large capacity, no problems with wi-fi and satellite TV

tip: no cleaning fee for stays of 5+ days

This condo definitely shows pride of ownership and is a gem. Cynthia was a pleasure to work with and provided excellent check-in information.

My family stayed at The Palms (Cynthia's Unit 1305) and it was a fabulous experience. As so many others have mentioned before, it was spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable (including AC in every room), convenient (well-equipped kitchen and in-suite laundry which is perfect for families and allows for light packing - important given the extra baggage fees charged by most airlines these days). However, the thing my family appreciated most about this unit was the large, wrap-around lanai (accessible from wrap-around sliding doors off the beautifully-bright family room) which afforded us tropical, outdoor, poolside dining (such a treat for us Canadians who have to eat most of our meals inside). Eating our meals poolside on the beautiful lanai was so wonderful, that we actually opted to cook/BBQ the majority of our meals ourselves (even though my husband and I detest cooking), and this saved us a tremendous amount of money (given the cost of eating out). Another thing while on the topic of the poolside lanai - from our convenient vantage point, we could see when the pool was busy with people, when it was not busy, and when it was literally empty (we always grabbed our swim suits and headed for the pool - a 15 second walk - when we saw it empty, as this afforded us the luxury of having the entire pool to ourselves!).

Our favourite memories - playing bridge w/ Nana on the lanai; late-afternoon lime marguaritas and tortilla chips w/ salsa on the lanai; my morning coffee on the lanai (with my big bowl of branflakes and blueberries); our family dinners on the lanai (with each family member taking a turn being the 'cook' for the night - lots of laughs as everyone in our party - except perhaps Nana - is a terrible cook). As for Maui itself, our favourite activities were 'the Old Lahaina Luau'; watching the surfers at Big Beach; playing in the waves on Polo Beach; driving to the Crater; seeing the Art Work at 'The Wailea Shops' and in the big hotels (e.g., The Grand Wailea); the snorkel trip with Blue Water Adventures to Molokini Crater; and just spending quality time together as a family.

This condo gets 6 Stars from us - and we definitely hope to come back! Thanks so much Cynthia for renting to us.

Our family loves coming to Maui and particularly this wonderful, spacious condo. The owners have taken care of everything you could possibly need. Boogie boards, beach towels, beach chairs, washer/dryer, dishwasher and plenty of dishes and cutlery for a family to enjoy. The condo is well organized and sparkling clean. Being close to the pool and hot tub made it easy for people to pop in and out of the water. The lovely large lanai allowed us to enjoy those perfect Maui evenings sitting outside. Walking the Wailea beach walk was a highlight for me in the morning to get some of that Kona coffee. Thank you Cynthia for making it so relaxing and fun for our family.

Fun in Wailea

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay in this condo, and we enjoyed ourselves again. Location of the complex works great for us. Location of the unit is also great as it is close to the pool with a large lanai situated nicely with a corner view of the ocean in the distance. The unit is very clean and has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. We look forward to staying there again on our next visit to Wailea.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

This Place could not have been any better, Very Clean, Very open floor plan, Nice View and relaxing Lanai, very well equipped kitchen, living and beach equipment. and steps to the pool and either short walk or drive to the beach. We had a great time staying here and would recommend to anyone and I don't think we would stay anywhere else when we return.

Owner provided all needed information and answered all our questions and helped us above and beyond.

Best located Condo at the Palms.
