These exclusive privileges are ONLY available to you if you rent from an owner that has been accepted by The Grand Wailea's rental program. You no longer have to choose between a luxury home or a resort, as this villa combines the best features of both!
When searching for a nice place to stay in Wailea on Maui's sunny south side, you'll have many great choices. There are very nice beach front resorts, such as the iconic Grand Wailea Resort, and some very nice privately owned residences. In most cases, you'll need to choose between the two options. Fortunately, you've just found the best of both! We've combined all of the services and amenities of the fabulous Grand Wailea Resort with a professionally designed and spacious three bedroom home. You'll experience the best home at Ho'olei while enjoying all of the benefits of being a guest at The Grand Wailea Resort.
Once you’ve decided that one of the homes at Ho’olei would be the perfect venue for your vacation, you need to decide which of the Ho’olei residences are for you. First and foremost, please be advised (that unlike at a resort), all Ho’olei residences are NOT the same. These are not hotel rooms created equally. Each of these properties are individually owned and the owners have the final choice on how the interiors are designed and furnished. Some of the homes have what we call “investor standard” furnishings. In an effort to make it more convenient for cost-conscious investors on the mainland, the investor selected and installed furniture that was cost effective for them.
Unfortunately, this cost constrained approach represents the majority of the homes at Ho’olei. While they are still nice (from a location and architectural viewpoint) the walls are generally not painted, all light switches are not on dimmers, the kitchens have the bare minimum equipment, and items are not replaced as quickly as we would prefer to see them replaced. Let’s face it…if you are a real estate investor, your returns will be higher if you spend less on the interior. As someone who has worked hard to earn your vacation and spent a lot of money to travel to Maui, you deserve better. Be sure to ask to see photos of the home you will be staying in before you commit to a reservation.
Many homes listed on VRBO do NOT qualify for the amazing amenities of the Grand Wailea Resort - ours does! We are able to offer FULL access and use of the Resort along with complimentary on-demand transportation to and from your home, the resort and beach. You and your family will be treated as if you were staying at the Grand Wailea Resort!

See our rates page to see the difference between the regular rate and our discounted rate. Bookings are handled as owner referrals - your deposit is held by the Grand Wailea Resort.
