Recent The Palms at Wailea Reviews


This unit blew us away. Everything we needed for a perfect Hawaiian vacation. The Palms is quiet and beautiful. Super location, quick walks to the beach or over to the Wailea shops. 10/10 recommend and will definitely stay here again. Sure wish the pool had umbrellas but now I’m just getting picky!

We have stayed at several units at the Palms over many years and this unit is the best yet. Newly renovated with a beautifully designed kitchen and baths. The owner and property manager were great and attentive. Stay here. You will not be disappointed.

Great location. Great condo setup with lots of room. Well equipped for cooking. Does feel somewhat dated compared to other condos in the Palms. Also very noisy because of traffic. And a bit of a trek uphill to the pool compared to the 1000 units. But overall nice stay.

Great stay in Maui. Spotless condo that was extremely well stocked and nicely appointed. Rose thought of everything you’d need during your stay and ensured she had it at the condo. Great location in Wailea with beaches, shopping and restaurants all within walking distance.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was more than happy with the location. I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: If you're paying for a nice condo at The Palms, 1105 should be priced at a major discount. This owner needs to spend time and money improving this property. It's tired and in need of repairs to make it nice for guests on vacation.This unit needs repairs to leaking pipes under sinks, sliders inside and out that go off tracks, AC in the guest room, cleaner linens (don't look at the stained bed pillows from drool), old and torn beach towels, and the general condition of an old, unremodeled unit. Lots of fake flowers don't hide the flaws.On top of all of that, the owner has their own personal stuff in the closets and cabinets, so good luck with having a place to put your own stuff. Rentals Maui was responsive to our multiple calls to fix items during our stay, but this place needs a makeover!

Overall the place was very clean, well stocked. View was excellent, got to see many whales from the Lanai. It is very nice to have a BBQ at your unit. Pool, hot tub and grounds are well taken care of, very quiet. Communicating with the host was good because there was a glitch with the code to get into the unit and the lock box was not really secured.

Our family of 5 loved staying here! It was so clean and had everything we needed for our week long stay. Jillian has done a great job ensuring the comfort of her guests; it really felt like we were staying at a friends house. We loved the area, so relaxing and quiet, but just a short 5-10 minute drive to dining and shops. It was perfect for our family!

Great location and view from patio. Unit is very dated and somewhat in disrepair. Carpet not flat on floor, stained and no baseboards. Kitchen cabinets did not all close or work properly. Bathrooms were a little disgusting. No paint behind toilet, stickers on wall in toilet room, chipped tiles and rusted metal on walls where plaster is missing. Couch was very dirty.

A most relaxed and enjoyable holiday. We were busy the first week with whale watching and road to Hana. But enjoyed just lounging in the unit, and at the pool. Hoping to make this an annual trip. Great times. Thanks

While it is an older property it is well maintained and has all the amenities you would need for a great vacation. It was clean and the location was fantastic - calm and relaxing with close proximity to restaurants and activities. The property managers should increase their recycling options (bottles and cans only), but otherwise we really enjoyed our stay.

Although there were positives there were a lot of negatives. We rented this condo for a week as it offered a foldaway couch-I thought we would be 2 more people that week. We rented another condo the week before, from the owners and it had much better views and owners were very friendly and available. That second condo had beach chairs and boogie boards, which was great. However we got there at 3:45 but the manager would not let us in early (they had at the first condo). She said the other people had left late and were more important than us as they had been renting for a longer period so we had to wait until 4. The manger was very rude to us. The maid was still there (on the patio) at 7:00 pm! There were no surface cleaning supplies at all and my wife had to use dish soap to wipe the counters! Last when I tried the BBQ there was no gas left! There was another tank but under a combination padlock and I didn't have the number! I sent a voicemail which was answered the next day-too late for that night! I called emergency service and she did answer and give me the combination but was also extremely rude. I hadn't open a combination lock and decades and kind of forgot how to turn the dial. The lady told me but was screaming at me like I was bothering her! Get another condo if you can!

We’ve stayed in this unit many times over the past 15 years. This unit is in dire need of TLC. Almost everything is worn out couches, beds, chipped paint by the window. We paid a very high nightly rate for 2 weeks and are so disappointed in the condition of the unit. The sink is split in the main bath and almost falling off the wall, the tub was clogged, no propane tank, electric kettle broken, difficult to open kitchen window and patio doors, broken beach chairs, we just felt nickeled and dimed with the minimal and cheap items supplied in the unit for a premium price. We complained to the main property manager as well and won’t stay here again.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The complex at Palms at Wailea was perfect for our family getaway. The grounds are beautiful,the buildings perfectly laid out and the pool area stunning. Very quiet both inside and outside the unit. The several minor maintenance items needed were quickly and professionally attended to.

This unit is a huge 1-bedroom with all the extras you could want in a vacation rental - very well stocked kitchen, grill, beach equipment, pool, and with a great location. We will be back!

The owner didn’t do a very good job giving check-in instructions and we had an old door code so spent our first night in another hotel until we could get in touch with their handyman, who got us into the unit the next morning. They said they sent it two weeks in advance, but we never received it! Then we had numerous issues with a bad BBQ that they finally replaced, a loose kitchen sink faucet and the batteries in the front door code went out and it took them a week to get it fixed for us! All these issues should have been taken care of before we arrived. The condo was pleasant, but the stress made our stay less enjoyable!

The condo was perfect! Spotless, well furnished, accurately described, and communication with Lawrence was prompt and pleasant. This was the perfect set up for my girlfriend and I to enjoy and experience all that Maui and the Wailea area have to offer. Would absolutely book this condo for future visits!

We have stayed at many places in Wailea over the years. Most of the available rentals are dated and are not well appointed. This property, 503 Palms Wailea, was amazing in every way...any questions or requests we had we taken care of in a very short time! Next time we go back to Wailea, we will definitely be checking with Cara to see if this property is available!

Unfortunately we were dissatisfied with our stay here. No working AC, it was extremely hot at night and uncomfortable sleeping. It was right on a busy road as well so opening the windows up was not as appealing. The TV also did not work and the remotes did not have batteries in them. We provided the feedback during our stay but the communication. With the management properly was not great.

With our binoculars at the ready we observed the humpbacks spouting, jumping and showing off their tails. Maalaea Harbor is an entertaining view. We enjoyed morning coffee and our meals at the table on the lanai. The bed was super comfy. The unit is at a prime location at the resort. Very quiet.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The Palms at Wailea is a fantastic place to stay in Maui. The location is very convenient and the surrounding property is beautiful and well maintained. When you book the condo you are provided with an app with complete information about check in/out, wifi, contact info, lots of useful information, etc etc. The only reason I lowered the rating was due to the condition of the unit where we stayed (1803). Is really outdated. Needs ro be renovated. I would 100% stay at the Palms again, just not in that unit.

704 at the palms was a beautiful condo for our family of four! The kitchen had everything needed to make amazing meals and a bbq. We even used the crockpot for making some aloha pork! Yummy! Jillian was wonderful when we needed something! This condo has amazing views as does the property! Rana

This was our sixth return in seven years to Wailea and our first stay at Palms of Wailea. This was a spacious, quiet, air conditioned second floor unit with one of the biggest and nicest outdoor spaces we’ve had in Wailea offering covered space for eating and open air space to catch some sun. The location was super convenient to the Shops at Wailea, near our favorite beaches and a 10-minute drive to the great breakfast spots in Kihei.

This condo was the best for our family visiting Maui for a week long stay. It had everything we could possibly need for our kids and for the beach etc. The hosts were very responsive and helped us out when we accidentally locked ourselves out. There is a nice pool just steps away from the condo and we were able to walk to the beach in 15 minutes.

The stay was great. We enjoyed 5 nights for our wedding week. The size of condo was perfect and the layout was lovely. Peek a boo ocean view from the lanai. Newly updated unit was well done. Enjoyed the spacious kitchen with new appliances.

Comfortable place to stay. A couple of nits: Watch out for the unmarked “trip” step going into the laundry. All four of us stumbled more than once. Easy fix would be a marking on the floor to warn you. Also, pack shampoo. Not provided. It’s so basic at most rental accommodations and a hassle to have to buy before you shower after a long flight. Traffic noise is considerable if you want to enjoy the lanai but not so bothersome at night. Otherwise, the beach gear was really welcomed and communication was great. Would stay there again.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a great time and our unit perfect in terms of locations and amenities. Lots of towels, beach equipment was all there - boogie board , chairs, umbrellas and snorkel gear. the kitchen had supplies and I love when people leave behind the spices, oils and vinegars so we didn’t have to buy and we also left behind what we didn’t use. Pay it forward kinda thing. I would stay at this condo over and over again. Clean. Modern, and made for a perfect holiday vacation.

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: We absolutely loved staying in this condo. It was roomy and very comfortable. It was very well equipped with everything we needed and more. The lanai was fantastic and only added to the spaciousness of the condo and our enjoyment of it.If there was anything that would improve our stay, it would be new pillows. That's a difficult request, I know, because it so objective. And it was certainly not a deal-breaker. There were 4 adults and one pre-teen staying here, and we all agreed we would gladly stay here again (and again!).

The condo’s location was perfect. The layout and space worked well for my family of 4. However, we were put off by how filthy the condo was when we arrived. There wasn’t a surface, wall, cupboard, drape or piece of carpet that was clean. The property manager offered to send in cleaners while we were there, but we didn’t want to be inconvenienced by either having to leave or being awkward by being there when a cleaning company came through.

Property more than lived up to its description. Very roomy, well stocked kitchen and a great patio/lanai. We used the barbeque most evenings. Complex is very quiet. Greatly appreciated the patio chairs and umbrellas that we were able to take to the beach. Highly recommend this property and would love to return.

Our first time staying at The Palms at Wailea and it did not disappoint. The grounds were well manicured and the condominium was updated and clean. Plenty of room for my family vacation and the lanai was especially nice. Having a bbq and beach chairs was also a bonus as they both got plenty of use. We would definitely choose this location again for future stays!
