Paradise in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. Had the space and privacy of a well-appointed condo (with great views) yet all the access to the lovely Grand Wailea hotel. Staff incredibly friendly and helpful too. Could not ask for more

Quiet, convenient, modern and very spacious living in Wailea!

  • 5 of 5

Vacationing with kids (ages 6 and 4) can be hectic, especially at busy resorts like the Grand Wailea where vacationing in a crowded resort with crowded pools only to go back to your cramped living space adds to the stress. The Ho'Olei unit we stayed in (17-4) was top notch with a large lanai with amazing ocean views.

You can call the front desk to have them usher you to the nearby Shops at Wailea or the Grand Wailea across the street. Or if you prefer less of a crowd, I'd suggest using the more private pool at the Ho'Olei. It doesn't have the slides the GW does, but our kids enjoyed every day in the Ho'Olei pool. Many of the other guests we interacted with had nothing but good things to say about the Ho'Olei.

The staff at the Ho'Olei are very knowledgeable, friendly and the best we've met in all our trips. Special thanks go out to Chuck Virtue and Vinny for making our trip so memorable.

My only gripe with this unit were the mattresses which weren't very comfortable, but because these are individually owned units, you get what you get. However, it's something I would suggest the owner consider replacing.

Overall - the Ho'Olei was a wonderful experience, truly giving you the relaxed feeling Maui has to offer.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review, Vick. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we are also very proud of the Grand Wailea staff - they provide wonderful service to our guests. We've just ordered new, resort-quality mattresses for the home. We feel that they provide the perfect combination of plush and supportive comfort. We will look forward to your return visit! Ken

The property we stayed at was great

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed a full 31 days at this property villa. We had company come to stay with us during the month for a few days. The staff at the villa were awesome people to work with. They did everything possible to keep us happy, confrontable and well informed. Any activities we wanted to do like helicopter ride, horse back riding, the submarine experience, golfing and scheduling us an Luau was done effortlessly. The cleaning staff at the villa also did an outstanding job. The villa itself had an overview of the ocean and we could set on the back deck enjoying it. There was plenty of room in the villa to accommodate six people very comfortable. The only thing that I would like to see where we stayed is an update on the furniture that was provided. Other than that everything was great. I would even consider going back and using the same owner to rent from. By the way, the connection to the Grand Wailea is a big plus for the villa. I would give the staff five stars, the villa four stars, and the owner who I dealt with five stars.

Thank You,

Terry Newbegin

Amazing Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 adults -15, 14 ,12 yr old kids) just returned from our vacation in Hawaii. We stayed in a few different places on 2 islands and had the pleasure of staying at this rental property for 3 nights while in Wailea. Right from our initial impression upon entering the beautiful grounds and the greeting from the hotel concierge and staff, we knew we selected the perfect place to stay!

We were escorted to the unit by Samantha who gave us a complete walk through/orientation.

The bell staff also came & brought in our luggage from our vehicle!

What a stunning entrance/view! Everyone was so impressed with their rooms, the cleanliness of the unit and the beautiful decor. Everything we could possibly need to make our vacation "homey" was found at 17-4. The only issue we had was no remote for the DVD in the main family room so when we only watched 1/2 a movie one night, we couldn't skip forward to where we left off the next day. Very small inconvenience but awesome that you can rent free DVD's from the concierge.

The view is spectacular and each night we watched the sunset from our balcony. We also decided to grill our dinner one evening on the outdoor patio and enjoyed a delicious meal on the outside table. That was something we have never done before on vacation so was a fun "first" and well worth the little bit of clean-up afterwards (Safeway is a 7 minute drive and has a very nice meat/seafood counter as well as prepared salads, veggies, etc). Lots of wine too!

Having access to the Grand Wailea facilities was a huge bonus for our family. This was the end of our 2 week vacation so we were definitely looking forward to relaxing by the beach/pool and using all the facilities at the hotel. We had no problem finding chairs & umbrellas (no cabana rentals necessary and there was 95-100% capacity when we were there). We walked over as well as took the shuttle. There was no problem doing either and sometimes just the kids would take the shuttle. The staff were always willing to accommodate whatever needs we had.

The beach of Wailea was so beautiful, easy for everyone to swim in and clean. My husband loved the 3-mile path that spanned through the area for jogging.

I cannot say enough about the customer service before and during our stay. We travel a lot and this was definitely one of the best in terms of making us feel special and that they were always willing to help. Would 100% recommend and would go back in a heartbeat.

Great House in Wailea

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is everything it was described as! The owner, Ken was very easy to reach and communicate with. When, at the last minute, our original unit was not available due to some patio furniture cushions that did not come in as scheduled, he called me and asked if we could move to another unit right next door. It was beautiful and we so appreciated his wanting us to have the full experience of the entire house - inside and out. The interior decor was spectacular, only to be outdone by the views and sunsets from the lanai. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. It's near proximity (5 minute walk or on-demand shuttle) to the Grand Walailea Waldorf Astoria Hotel and Resort, plus access to all the Hotel's amenities was a bonus, not to mention the pool, workout room, daily coffee and access to poolside massage therapists within the neighborhood. Wonderful place to stay with family or group. Everything from check-in, walk through and explanation of various workings of the house, and friendliness of the staff was top-notch. Would definitely rent this place again!

Beautiful luxurious property, a wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a week in a 3brm 3bathroom deluxe ocean view villa (second from top row) 17-4, which we booked via the owner on VRBO but is run by the Grand Wailea- this means that your nightly rate is lower than if you book through the hotel, and you are guaranteed this spacious villa, which is beautifully and tastefully decorated with luxurious furnishings, art and bedding. You have access to the Grand wailea pools, beach chairs and umbrellas and the complimentary shuttle to the hotel and the shops. The Ho'olei pool and gym is lovely and quiet and the grounds of the entire complex are immaculate. This villa is to the far left of the property looking out to sea, and thus furthest from the entrance and pool (and road) so is quiet and private. It is the left middle of a block of 6 (2 middle ones are largest, with much larger lanai and most private) and therefore gets a lovely sunset and view out to the golf course from the left (open)side of the lanai. I have never seen such a well stocked kitchen- enough glassware for a cocktail party for 20, and every utensil from lime zester to pizza cutter, great cookware and blender etc. Top end appliances including 2 fridge/freezers, and a fridge on the lanai and in the master suite. Extras like surfboards, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas, picnic tupperware and chilly bins make it like a home away from home. Dish detergent and tablets, laundry liquid, all toiletries, robes, hair straighteners!, S&P and a welcome basket of ground coffee, cereal and chocolates all provided. The staff are wonderful and the shuttle service is extremely prompt. There is a new gourmet food market at the shops at Wailea which is very well stocked. We found the best snorkelling was at Ulua beach a 2min drive with a public car park. No issues with access to loungers at beach, wailea or Ho'olei pool (Sep27-Oct 4)- in fact the Ho'olei was incredibly quiet. Staff very obliging with late checkout, if not available you can use all facilities and then the showers at the pool where all toiletries and hairdryer etc are supplied. A perfect week in Wailea- if you like cooking great food with family and friends in a top notch kitchen with a lovely view, and enjoying a luxurious home rather than a hotel room and eating out every night then this is the place for you!
