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.

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.

Great Return Visit

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this condo for the month of February for the second consecutive year and have already booked it for the next year. What can I say ... very comfortable, very well equipped, quiet, great location and very attentive owners. We ran into a small problem air conditioner (our fault), contacted Cara, and she and Sig were there to deal with it less than 15 minutes later. Amazing!

A little corner of Paradise - Clean, comfortable and everything you need

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 teenage girls and I stayed in in this condo over Christmas and New Years. We had never used VRBO before and were a little nervous. What a treat! The condo is even better than the pictures, brighter, bigger and very comfortable (especially the beds) and VERY clean which was a releif. The owner's exemplorary service start from the moment you inquire about the unit and continue right through to the prompt return of your damage deposit. They certainly want you to feel at home and even set up a Christmas tree for us prior to our arrival (after asking if we wanted one).

Check in was smooth and efficient, check out was just as easy. Cara was readily available if needed and left you alone if not. It was an easy 5 min walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The area is gorgeous and we felt very safe.

We liked the way the lanai is situated, it was quiet and off of the beaten path opening to a very nice greenspace. The kitchen was very well stocked with all we needed including a sufficient selection of spices, we just had to pick up our groceries which was an easy task with a few options available. We liked the selection at Safeway.

The girls had a blast taking a surf lesson with Kyle at the Maui Surf Shack and loved snorkling right at the beach down from the condo where they saw many different fish and BIG turtles. We cetainly put the beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and coolers to good use and didn't have to go far to enjoy ourselves. Although, we loved our road trip to Hana. A must do with much to see... waterfalls, black sand beach, blow holes, lava tubes and breathtaking scenery.

We enjoyed having the opportunity to cook our own meals and put our feet up after exploring but If you're not up for using the BBQ at the condo there are some great places to eat close by. Hubby and I took in Happy Hour and ate fresh sushi at the 5 Palms on more than one occasion. We had fun at Longhis, a fantastic meat at the Monleypod and don't miss Leoda's Kitchen and Pie Shop on the way to Lahaina. On New Year's Eve we took in the The Grand Luau at Honua'ula at the Grand Wailea and really enjoyed the entertainment while the food was surprisingly fresh and tasty.

We are already looking at the calendar trying to figure out when we can go back and we'll definitely be contacting Cara and Sig. We wouldn't hesitate to rent this condo again they have set the bar high.

Very Nice Condo; No Complaints

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice. Tile throughout; quiet, conveniently-located, with a great pool area. I would recommend to a friend for sure. Everything inside was beautiful and well-provisioned. The beds were super comfortable and the walk-in shower bathrooms very nice. All in all, a 10.
