If you have ever stayed in Wailea you know why this particular area on the island of Maui is described as a Tropical Paradise...if not, you are about to!
CONDE NAST TRAVELER MAGAZINE'S READER'S FIRST CHOICE AWARD again goes to Maui (20th time): The 'Best Island in the World,' as well as 'Best U.S. Island' for the 22ND consecutive year, stating that readers rave about this “veritable paradise.”
Mark Twain and Robert Louis Stevenson were among the first famous tourists to publicly marvel over Maui. Repeat visitors often return to Maui's sunny South Coast...where the peaceful atmosphere, tropical landscaping and sweeping vistas, pleasant weather, and palm-fringed golden sand beaches are unrivaled!
A warm Aloha greets you at our family’s spacious 1-bedroom, 2-bath, 1022 sq ft condominium (an upper level end unit) plus a spacious double lanai at The Palms at Wailea. With vaulted ceilings, attractive updated Hawaiian decor, situated in a neighborhood of upscale private homes and low-rise condos, amid the tropical grounds of The Palms at Wailea in the scenic world-class resort of Wailea, you can be sure of a classic Hawaiian setting for your stay........not a High Rise in view!
The Palms at Wailea resort is located 16 miles from Kahului Airport. Scenic Keawakapu Beach is a pleasant 10 minute walk, partly along The Palms at Wailea tropical waterfall path. Or, in less than 5 minutes from our door-to-sand, you may drive and park in one of two lots adjacent to, but hidden from, scenic palm-fringed Keawakapu Beach. Shopping for groceries or whatever your needs may be in Kihei Town, or taking in The Shops at Wailea... each is a very short drive, or you may choose to walk to The Shops at Wailea either along the beach or along the golf course.
Imagine awakening to the soothing sounds of tropical songbirds... viewing the bluest of oceans through the palms...with breakfast on the lanai...also a perfect spot to relax after the beach, to read, to contemplate...in sun or in shade...and to enjoy dinner at sunset.....always a spectacular view from our lanai as it sets behind the island of Lana'i. Our second (top) floor, end unit location allows us more privacy and the ability to leave the doors wide open to welcome tropical breezes.
Ours is one of the few condos at The Palms at Wailea that is fully air conditioned...and on our lanai is a Weber gas BBQ, both at no extra charge to you. (In contrast, The Palms On-Site Management charges $15/day for A/C, and $10/day for a portable BBQ). We have free Internet access and all calls to the US and Canada are free. We invite you to share our family's comfortable 'Tropical Getaway' for your stay and we wish you Aloha and Hana Hou...
Repeat guests have enthusiastically compared their stay at our Palms at Wailea Condo with a stay at a high-rise luxury hotel: our roomy floor plan and spacious lanai, convenient dedicated parking place just steps from our private entry, attractive and comfortable tropical decor, The Palms at Wailea grounds with sweeping ocean views, inviting pool and Jacuzzi: 'Comparable luxury....incomparable privacy for a fraction of the cost!' Stroll down the hill to famous 'Wailea Beach Walk' which ambles by Andaz Resort, The Marriott, The Grand Wailea, The Four Seasons, and The Fairmount Kea Lani, where you may jog or walk several miles in each direction in the sand or on a paved walkway, or both!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005
The location! Lushly landscaped, non-commercial Wailea on the sunny south side of Maui......has beautiful golden sand, palm-fringed beaches with views of the islands of Lana'i and Kaho'olawe, Molokini crater, the West Maui Mountains and Haleakala.... With four Championship seaside golf links: Blue, Emerald, Gold, and Makena.
We absolutely love our tropical 'home away from home'...our well-cared-for, well stocked condo has many comforts to make everyone's stay more pleasant.
From our door to the sand of lovely Keawakapu Beach it is less than a 10 minute walk; or, a 2 minute drive to several parking lots close to, but not visible from, the beach. Walking south Keawakapu Beach continues with lovely Wailea Beach Walk and ambles along Mökapu, Ulua, Wailea, and Polo Beaches: unrivaled beaches for every activity, including tidepooling and excellent snorkelling and scuba diving.
In addition to our world-class location, our nicely appointed condo offers the comforts of home in an upscale tropical setting. From The Palms salt water pool and jacuzzi are expansive ocean/island/mountain views. Awaken to the sounds of tropical songbirds...the soft rustle of palm fronds...and watch the day come alive as the sun rises over Haleakala. The day is yours to enjoy...and Maui has a broad variety of temptations. At dinner on our lanai you can watch the sun set on the island of Lana'i.
Time has slipped by quickly, but we wanted to let you know that we had a really nice time at your condo again this year. Your place is great and we would like to come back next year for two weeks hopefully.
John and Barb, North Vancouver BC
This was our 3rd visit and we love returning to stay at this delightful condo. The location is in a quiet neighborhood, but close to great restaurants, golf courses, good shopping and of course the beach. The lanai faces the ocean and is the perfect place to watch the beautiful sunsets while grilling dinner. The owner, Jane, is very helpful and responds quickly to all questions. She recently updated the furnishings and we love the new look. She also has stocked the kitchen with appliances and dishes and she has most of the beach equipment you need. She also has provide guide books as to activities and adventures, recommendations for restaurants and directions for local attractions. We love to play golf and the 3 courses close by are beautiful and fun to play. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you for sharing your Maui home! Aloha.
At this private 2nd floor condo, you literally wake up every morning with a view of the ocean in bed. One of our favorite things was to drink our coffee on the lanai every morning in front of the ocean. Then open the windows and get the best breeze throughout the cozy condo. Safe and gorgeous area of the city as well. We ate in almost every night and watched the stars above either in the lanai or down in the complex hot tub. They supply all the kitchen equipment and beach equipment you need so our days at the beaches were perfect without spending an extra dime. Your reserved parking spot is right next to your private stairwell. Our honeymoon was not long enough and we would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you guys so much!!!
I don't normally write reviews unless a vacation experience is extra special. Well, this one was! For those of you who may be looking for the ideal spot on Maui, this is it. This place is immaculate, comfortable and accessible to everything we had hoped to do during our stay. The owners provided all the comforts of home and then some. There were directions where to find, as well as how too operate, everything. Books, CD's, and portfolios of local attractions and eateries! We had no idea there was an award winning winery and a local brewery so near. The lanai is extra special and we ate many of our meals there - where a super gas grill is available. The walls are adorned with touches of the island charm. The ocean view and the sunsets from the lanai will fill up your camera card. There are 2 of Maui's finest beaches within walking distance, and the Beach Walk itself gives you access to several up-scale resorts, and a shopping mall, where one may enjoy a cocktail, a meal, or even a musical performance or an art display. I think my favorite experience was watching the beautiful sea turtles as they swam so near. Booking with Jane was a breeze. She responded promptly, answered all our questions, and offered many suggestions. We will definitely return to this charming condo in paradise. S&G, Denver
This condo was the perfect spot for our family to spend our summer holiday. Jane answered all of our questions prior to arrival. She is very kind and made planning our vacation easy. This very clean condo exceeded our expectations. It was beautifully furnished and also very comfortable for our family of four. It included a fully stocked kitchen, beach chairs, boogie boards, tasteful artwork/decor and a quiet, private location. The Palms is a great home base for exploring Maui, and we can't imagine there could be a better unit in the complex. We look forward to returning.
We've enjoyed several family vacations at various locations on Maui... This most recent is now our favorite! The lush landscaping around the Palms complex and pool, along with special touches apparent in the care of this condo, made this feel like a home rather than a rental. The location in Wailea is perfect as it is close to beaches we think are the best, and there are many restaurants close by in Wailea and Kihei. Surprisingly, breakfast and the BBQs on the lanai were some of our favorite meals during the week!
This was our first vacation to Maui where it was just the two of us. We've had past fabulous family vacations in Maui and at the Palms and therefore had high expectations for our stay. This condo left nothing wanting to make the vacation one would hope for. The condo was very clean, spacious and inviting, ideally located within the complex, and included all the amenities one would expect in ones own home. Nothing was missing. The Owner was excellent to deal with and responded very quickly in confirming all arrangements. It was obvious the Owner ensured everything was in place to ensure a memorable stay; which it was. We will be back!
Whale Watching Season on Maui: December through April. Maui is world renowned for the large whale population that returns to island waters from Alaska each year and can be seen from the shore or viewed up close on commercial whale watching tours. Excellent tidepools at nearby Keawakapu Beach and Ulua Beaches. Excellent snorkelling at Ulua Beach, where Pacific Whale Foundation docents staff an information station to answer your questions and offer guidance about the sea creatures seen at the reef.
