• full-size washer and dryer

• personal safe large enough to hold a 17-inch laptop

• free cable TV, movies and Netflix

• free wireless high-speed Internet access

• complimentary long-distance calling anywhere in the U.S. and Canada

• fully equipped kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and everything you need, whether you’re mixing a Mai Tai or cooking a gourmet dinner.

The very large wraparound lanai facilitates outdoor living, especially with your own private BBQ included!

Additional features:

• new high-quality linens and towels

• ocean-view hot tub and saltwater swimming pool

• seven-minute walk to Keawakapu beach park (we provide beach towels, chairs, boogie boards and a cooler)

This condo is located close to Ulua and Keawakapu beaches. The property spans a gently sloping hillside, and our unit is about 150 feet above sea level. Beautiful water features accent the garden and lead to the central area with great pool, hot tub and lounge. There is a tour desk to assist you with sightseeing and activities.

Head out and enjoy the numerous Wailea golf courses, tennis facilities, restaurants, and the Shops at Wailea only minutes away, or stay in and enjoy a breathtaking Maui sunset at dinner on the lanai!

About Cara

Our family has vacationed in Kihei every January since 2004. We moved to sunny Kihei in 2010. The next logical step for us was to buy a vacation rental that our friends and family can come visit us! We hope to welcome you at Palms at Wailea 503 soon! We are sure you will enjoy your stay!

Cara purchased this condo in 2011

Why Cara chose Maui

We have often admired the beautiful Mediterranean-like Palms at Wailea complex, wishing we could stay in its beautiful park-like setting with huge lanais. When #503 came up for sale, we jumped at the opportunity! We hope you will enjoy this location as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

As local Kihei resident owners, we take pride in providing you with your home away from home! You may contact us directly during your stay, rather than dealing with a busy rental agency! We live closeby and are available to handle any concerns.

This place was amazing and so are the owners! It is beautiful inside and out and has a beautiful lanai. It was perfect for us and our two kids while in Maui. The owners are wonderful - very helpful and accommodating. It was also really great they had stocked beach essentials (chairs, umbrella, etc). The location within the resort is great - it's a close walk to the beach (10 minutes) and the view is beautiful.. Highly recommended!

The most perfect Maui condo at a great price!!!

  • 5 of 5

Palms at Wailea was so perfect I am not sure my review will do it justice. First off, Cara and Sig are wonderful people who are honest and trustworthy. Their description of the property is right on and may even be underestimating the beauty of the condo. It's clean, clean, clean and very well maintained. The location is perfect and easy to get to as well as being close to the beach, stores, restaurants and attractions. Cara was also so very helpful with any questions I had before and during our trip. It felt really good to know we were renting from such great people!

We stayed in November along with two friends who joined us for a short time at the beginning of our stay. They were very impressed with the condo, just as much as we were. The condo is much bigger than the pictures show and it gets a wonderful breeze with the patio doors and windows open. It is also very quiet on the property and the outside is just as beautiful as the inside. Our stay couldn't have been more perfect, I regret not booking the condo for a longer period of time.

We will definitely rent from Cara and Sig again when we are in Maui. We've already passed on their information to family and friends. I would highly recommend booking with them! Everything was truly perfect!

Very nice condo!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this condo. The condo is big and very nice with an awesome lanai. This condo served us excellently and the only thing I was slightly disappointed about was how long of a walk it was to the beach. We ended up driving most of the time since it was quite a walk and we usually wanted to bring a collection of things with us.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay at our beautifully renovated condo. The large wrap-around lanai overlooking a large lawn with an oceanview in the distance is one of our favorite features at this condo, a perfect place to relax or enjoy an evening bbq. As mentioned in the condo description, our condo is about a 7 minute walk from Keawakapu beach. While it is walkable and we provide backpack beach chairs with built-in cooler bags, many guests (if going for a beach day) will choose to drive to one of Wailea or Kihei's wonderful beaches - all beaches have free parking.

Fabulous 2 weeks

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we rented from Cara at the Palms. Both experiences were fabulous! This time we chose to stay for two weeks. The condo is spacious, clean, and comfortable. It is close to the beach and shopping. We found a couple of food trucks near the beach and tried some local food at a few hole in the wall paces up country. Cara was available to answer any questions. Check in and out procedure is easy and has always ran smooth for us. Love the renovations Cara. The condo also has A/C in the whole house, which we found out is not very common. It was cool and relaxing during the hot sunny days on on Maui. Thanks Cara! We will be back!

Great Family Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four - 2 adults and 2 teens had a great stay in Maui. The condo was incredibly well maintained and organized. Both our daughters now think their bathroom at our home needs to have a rain shower installed just like the condo's clean, modern bathrooms! We appreciate the owner's blog and also they had a copy of a Maui guidebook available to look up last minute ideas.

We appreciated all the extras from beach towels to boogie boards, cooler and beach chairs. We only ate breakfast in the condo and felt a bit guilty not taking advantage of the bbq and the well stocked kitchen. Each room has A/C - but the ceiling fans and big patio doors offered up a wonderful breeze and we didn't find the need to use the air conditioning at all. The pool area is an easy 2 minute walk and offers a bit of shade and plenty of sunshine too.

This is our favorite area to stay in Maui (we hadn't been for 7 years) and Wailea/Kihei still rate number one with us. Excellent restaurants from fancy to casual, not so crazy as the Lahaina area and perfect beaches from large to small little beach coves. It is about a 15 minute walk to the shops of Wailea and cocktail hour at all the area's hotels. Driving plus free parking was never an issue.

Favorite meals include: Monkeypod Kitchen, Pita Paradise (both for lunch and dinner) and fish tacos at Paia Fish Market in Kihei. We also enjoyed the all day catamaran Trilogy tour to Lanai and the half day snorkeling tour with Maui Magic (kids especially enjoyed the boat, staff and slide off the boat into the water), we didn't get up for sunrise, but took the small group bike tour down the volcano with Maui Easy Riders beginning at 9:00 am and coasted down the volcano road to the smell of fresh flowers, cow fields, ocean breezes and ended in the cute town of Paia to explore and lunch at Hana Provisions.

A great vacation in Maui - book it :)

Fantastic property, wonderful beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great time at The Palms in Wailea rented by Cara and Sig Birkholtz through Maui Oceanview Condos. There was plenty of room for us and the condo was great and complete with top appliances and utensils. It also had laundry in-suite which was very useful for those sandy beach days. Free wi-fi was very helpful in planning our daily outings. Sitting out on the lanai in the mornings was wonderful and the bird songs were amazing. The Keawakapu beach was only a 5 minute walk away with soft sand and light surf, great for the kids to play. We used the pool at the condo almost daily as well and were pleased with its size. The employees were always busy making the grounds beautiful and well-kept. I would recommend this property to family and friends.
