My family and I enjoyed the stay at this beautiful and fully equipped unit. The location of this unit was close to the pool and is walking distance to the Wailea mall and beach. I would definitely give 5 stars, but I was disappointed to find the floors and kitchen counter top weren’t the cleanest upon arrival. The counter had sand or something of that texture on it and the floors were dirty. We had a problem with the cable box and/or router, but since it was our last evening there, we just let customer service know before future guests arrive. Also, as a suggestion, it would be nice if a map of the area, like the pool and beach, and outside trash bins was provided.

We loved this condo. We had a group of 9, aged 6-71 and it worked perfectly for us. The location is so close to everything we wanted to do and see, and the complex is awesome - quick walk to the pool which is gorgeous, never crowded has had REALLY long daily hours, water dispenser etc. it’s a short walk across the street to the resort beach, and the unit has beach chairs, umbrellas, and some pool toys for use. The unit is gorgeous - upscale, lots of space, comfy furniture/beds, huge kitchen. The laundry is a huge help with beach towels, of which there are also plenty. We had some really minor issues (cooling in half the fridge went out which wasn’t a big problem since the fridge is enormous and the other side was working, some Burt out lightbulbs etc). The cleaning crew does a spectacular job and was also super accommodating when we asked to drop off groceries ahead of our check-in time. Highly recommend this property for anyone visiting the area.

This property is beautiful. Property managers are so nice. The condo is by far the nicest we have ever stay in. It is well appointed and the kitchen is stocked with everything a cook could possibly need. I would give this stay a “10” if there were more stars. We had a wonderful time in Wailea. Highly recommend

Walking distance to wailea beach and shops, comfortably fit 10 people. Walkable to fantastic pool as well. Only issue was a couple things were broken from tennants before us, but property manager remedied critical items.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Beautiful, spacious and extremely clean home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The only negative would be the pull out bed. Clearly, for 2 adults this is not sufficient. The mattress falls through slats and should only be recommended for children. Needed to put mattress on the floor the following nights, which was just ok. Other than that would highly recommend this place.

This was our third trip to Maui in the past three years. We stayed at the same vacation rental our first two times there. While we loved it, it was in upcountry and took almost an hour to drive to Wailea Beach. We decided that if we ever went back to Maui we would have to find a place closer to the beach and other things to do. I was worried that we wouldn’t find a place that we liked as much, however, this place was everything we could have wanted and more! We went to celebrate my oldest daughter’s high school graduation, and it was a perfect trip of relaxation with beautiful views from the home and convenient access to everything you could want to do in the area. The house is beautifully decorated and a perfect layout. We just loved opening the sliding doors as soon as we woke up in the morning so that we could enjoy the outdoors and beautiful view of the beach while we were drinking our coffee and eating breakfast. The house is so well stocked and there’s nothing we needed outside of food. we appreciated having so many beach towels and accessories as well and a garage for the car. The beds and couches were extremely comfortable! Really can’t say enough wonderful things about the place and the hosts were very responsive to my questions before and during our stay. I would highly recommend this home!

This is a great location and is very roomy. It’s very clean and has a great view. Great for friends and family. Everything you need for the beach and is just a .5 walk to the beach. Property host was very nice and attentive. We did have a slight issue with a couple of things. The first night the smoke detector kept beeping.. haha. No problem just removed the battery. Then the bbq wouldn’t stay lit, the dishwasher broke (wouldn’t drain), and one of the stovetops kept going out. This was just a slight annoyance, but overall it was great. The gym is incredible and the pool and spa is really nice too.

We had a beautiful time. The property fit all 10 of us, six adults and four children, well. The pool was a hit with the kids. Location was great with accessibility to restaurants and beaches. The kids are already asking when we can go back, and we would definitely stay here again.

The unit was beautiful and it was exactly has advertised on the website. The photos accurately showed the unit, the pool and anemities. We enjoyed the spaciousness, the lanai, the pool and the close proximity to the pool. We all agreed that it was the nicest place we had ever stayed in. There were a few minor things in the unit that were broken or not working well. I emailed Derek and he replied immediately thanking me for letting him know. We asked that no one come in to do repairs during our stay and it was honoured. Text messages to the building manager were answered immediately. That was really nice. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would recommend it

This property is stunning. What was really fantastic, in addition to the quality of the property, is the location. We were able to walk to multiple local sites, including one of the prettiest beaches, multiple stores and outstanding restaurants. And the property is centrally located so everything that you want to do on the island is easily accomplished.

We LOVED our time at this property! It is spacious with beautiful furnishings and decor, and the layout is conducive to family meals and movies. It is close to the beach and we loved our daily walks along the beachwalk and daily dips in the gorgeous water. It is convenient to everything! We would stay again -- this was a great springboard for a memorable family vacation.

Huge kitchen and living spaces, comfortable lanai, and three bedrooms with own bathrooms. Everyone loved this location. Perhaps expensive when compared to a crowded hotel room, but a bargain when one realizes how much space and beauty you’re getting. Daily evening sunsets added to the pleasure of our stay. Thank you.

We've stayed in different villas within Ho'olei and none of them have disappointed. They're wonderful places to stay, this particular unit suited us well because it had 4 bedrooms which was great! My only real complaints were one major and one minor: 1. The price - this isn't a fault of this particular unit or owner or anything, Maui has just gotten completely out of hand with the cost of everything - property, rent, groceries, gas, everything! 2. Couldn't find a can opener. :) Another note from our experience in Maui - Wailea and Ho'olei are awesome. However, once we left the area there was quite a lot of hostility towards tourists. There seems to be a division we felt between the locals who want/need tourism and those that do not. Unfortunately the tourists themselves are caught in the middle and it can be a rather uncomfortable experience (Tourists Not Wanted signs and things like that). We had a park ranger say that some rental vehicles are being vandalized if they are left in the "wrong" area and we were cautioned several times about areas to avoid. A final example to illustrate, we went to Twin Falls and when we arrived, there were two pick up trucks parked diagonally and a man sitting on a bucket staring down any tourists who slowed down or parked to view the falls. There aren't many spots to begin with and this person was intentionally blocking about half of them. That's the kind of awkward and uncomfortable vibe we had. Just a note to those planning.

Accommodations were perfect and views were incredible. Home is equipped with everything you need and then some. Property manager ensures your arrival is as expected and is available if needed during your stay. We could not have asked for more except additional days in this setting. Perfect vacation!

Check-in was very easy and directions to property were great. Unit was as described for the most part. For the price paid I expected it to be better kept. There were multiple places where you could see drywall patches, baseboards with peeling paint, trim pieces throughout kitchen needed attention, drawer handles in kitchen felt sticky with kitchen grease/grime, mildew around master bedroom ceiling vent, shower handle off and laying aside. The dishwasher & garbage disposal really need attention. Had to prewash the dishes by hand prior to putting in dishwasher or they wouldn't come clean. There was an ironing board, but we could not find an iron. Who irons on vacation - we needed to for family photos. Many batteries in remotes needed replaced & several light bulbs were burned out. It was great to have a pack-n-play (sheets would have been nice) & highchair. The washer & dryer were great! The arrival supplies were ample to get us started. The outdoor kitchen & lanai were wonderful although two of the four chairs were wobbly & unsafe. It would have been great to be able to use the lanai sunshade in the evenings. It had been broken for a while as the wall switch had been replaced with a blank cover. Could not get the sliding doors to lock which could be a safety issue; especially with a very young toddler. The lounge chair cushions off of the master bedroom need attention. Great pool area. Texted phone # in book twice for assistance with no reply at all. Janae was quick to respond

The pictures don't even do it justice. We had a perfect stay at the Blair Household. Everything we could possibly need. Enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and eating all our meals on the fabulous balcony overlooking whales and spectacular sunsets. Don't hesitate to book for one minute. Thank you for the memories.

The pictures can't possibly capture how great the view is in real life. We could've spent the entire trip on the deck and been completely satisfied. Very relaxing and serene property. Very easy to get in and out. Never had such convenient parking before as an added bonus. If you think this property might be the right one for you, then you are correct. It is!

My family of 4 enjoyed our New Year’s week at this beautiful property! It was clean, well appointed, spacious, and in a great location! The host was responsive to our challenges getting the grill to work and sent someone to assist the next day. The only things lacking were beach bags and food storage items for picnics but we improvised. We will be back!

January 2024

I rented this place for a month for my family and we were not disappointed. Really one of the best places to stay in Ho'olei. The view from the Lanai is incredible and the place comes with 8 beach chairs, 2 umbrellas, and plenty of beach towels great for going to any beach. The pool area in the community is great with a gym and two big jacuzzis and waterfalls. The only thing I would improve is the downstairs bedroom's bathroom's water pressure and shower. The water pressure is too weak and the shower is awkward in my opinion. If the unit is available when I come back for my next trip I will be booking it again.

Clean, well appointed, and a killer ocean view made this property an amazing place for our 6 day family getaway. Nice resort pool and short walk to the beach and shops, yet private and quiet so no dealing with normal hotel crowds. Big kitchen with patio bbq added to making this the perfect place for our stay.

What an amazing property to stay at in Maui…accommodations were comfortable and luxurious and the view was unbelievable. Our extended family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Kitchen had everything needed to prepare a home cooked meal and the living room and open balcony provided an amazing way to enjoy New Year’s Day while watching the Rose Bowl. We would not hesitate to stay here again if available on our return to Maui. Thank you for making your home available for others to use. GO BLUE !!!

Maui is our favourite destination and we have been several times over the last twenty years. The property is the nicest I have stayed at in Wailea. It was absolutely stunning and had an abundance of space for our family -both to have our own space as well as to hang out together on the lanai or in the main living area. . We particularly enjoyed the location as it is closed to the wailea walking path. As well, our adult children liked the pool and spent lots of time enjoying it. We hope to have the opportunity to visit again. So blessed!!

Our stay at Ho’olei Villa 12-4 was VERY comfortable all-round, from start to finish! Each of the 3 bedrooms (all master-suites w/ensuite baths) were spacious & private for my husband & I, my parents & our two older sons to share. Our adult daughter claimed the pullout sofa in the family room & had her own use of the main floor half-bath as well as sharing our shower. Her only comment was that she was up with the sunshine every morning as the expansive wall-to-wall lanai doors did not have blinds. The shared spaces, particularly the kitchen/family room worked wonderfully for the whole family to gather, whether it be for morning coffee/breakfast or for the group to visit & join in on preparing/tidying up the meals we were easily able to prep within the well-appointed kitchen. The lanai & bbq/grill were enjoyed for both morning/evening relaxation & the open-air meals we cooked. Even though the location of the villa does back onto a bit of a busy roadway, it didn’t phase us too much as any opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in paradise was welcomed. The location did prove beneficial as it was closer for us to visit the beautiful Ho’olei pool or easily trek just across the street to the beach/ocean via the pristine Grand Wailea Resort or the enjoy a nice walk to the shops. The peek-a-boo ocean view was framed nicely from the lanai & we knew we were fortunate to get that on top of a fabulous place to stay. Keyless entry was great & contact w/management was simple & very helpful!

This house fulfilled the needs of all 9 of our family who gathered to celebrate our 50th. The location was perfect. We were able to walk to the luau we chose for the anniversary evening. The swimming pool was spectacular, and really beautiful (and deserted) at night, and just a short walk from the house. The owners provided a wagon we used to haul our stuff and the 2-year-old to the pool. The beach was close. We cooked some big dinners (Christmas for one) and the kitchen accommodated everything well. We couldn't find a hot pad which would be a good addition. But the kitchen as a whole was very well-equipped, with a really large refrigerator/freezer. The bedrooms fit our families perfectly, and were located such that we could each have a quiet place to get away to when needed. The beds were comfortable. There were plenty of towels, and a full-size washer and dryer so we never ran out. The way the glass doors/screens/shades completely opened out to the lanai was really wonderful. Each bedroom had its own full bathroom and there was a guest bathroom besides. There was room for the little ones to do crafts and dance and have a wonderful time. We bought a few Christmas lights to make it more festive. Having a garage for one car and a place to park the 2nd car nearby was convenient. I loved being able to recycle. The owners responded promptly when we contacted them. We really enjoyed the holiday/anniversary celebrations we had here. Thank you for hosting us.

This was the first trip to Maui with the kids and grandkids.The location was great and was within walking distance of the beach at the Grand Wailea, restaurants, and shopping. We couldn’t be happier with our accommodations. The condo was spacious, clean and nicely maintained. It was perfect for our group of eight.We were amazed the kitchen was so well stocked with dishes, glassware, pots and pans, utensils, etc. The onsite barbecue was a nice feature. The table on the lanai was large enough for all of us to fit comfortably and have a nice meal together. The view of the ocean and the amenities were also nice. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time and would come back again.

Enjoyed staying at this spacious 3 bedroom 3.5 bath condo in Wailea across from the Grand Wailea Hotel. 5 minutes from the beach from a private secured development. Excellent gym & pool facilities and within walking distances of shops, restaurants and coffee! Great appliances and, importantly, an in-condo lanai grill - no longer allowed for Maui condos without fire suppression systems. One car garage and a covered carport are also included. Will stay here again!

Great view, perfect location. Stayed with my parents and daughter and niece and nephew. More than enough room for everyone.
