It’s not easy to find a vacation home that offers all of the benefits that Kanani at Ho’olei provides her guests. In Hawaiian, the meaning of Kanani is sea and sky. As you walk up the steps to her front door and walk into the living area, you are greeted by the majestic Pacific ocean along with the ever changing blue sky over the West Maui and Lanai landscapes. The view is what draws Kanani’s guests…once they arrive, her impeccable design and features are what keep them coming back.
Kanani is located on the third row of town homes, up the hill at Ho’olei, one of the most unique and perfectly designed gated residential communities on Maui. Ho’olei is located directly across the street from the iconic Grand Wailea Resort, on Wailea beach, one of the top-rated beaches in the world. This wonderful combination of location, features and space provide our guests with a vacation experience that is simply unparalleled.
Ho’olei is a community of two level town homes, each with a garage and three bedrooms. Spacious, well built, and full of modern luxury features, this development is very un-like many of the classic condominium develops in the area. One of the the most important features of Ho’olei is it’s relationship to the Grand Wailea Resort, not only from a proximity standpoint, but from a service standpoint. A limited number of Ho’olei homeowners have been selected to provide their guests access and use of the Grand Wailea’s facilities. We are proud to be included in the Grand Wailea’s rental program, giving you the service, access and amenities of this fabulous resort.
When you stay at Kanani at Ho’olei, you are also a Grand Wailea Resort guest, meaning you and your family may utilize the Grand Wailea’s eight pools, water water slides, beach chairs, services and amenities. You even have charging privileges! Just pick up the phone and within minutes, Grand Wailea staff members whisk you over to the resort, which is just across the street. When it’s time to come home to Kanani, resort staff will bring you to the front door of your home away from home. It doesn’t get easier….or better than that! On a five night or longer stay, Grand Wailea staff will do a complete housekeeping visit, and we never charge an out-cleaning fee. All of this resort service, facility access, transportation and assistance is included in your nightly rate.
When you arrive at Ho’olei, Grand Wailea staff members will greet you and provide a tour of the many features of the home. You’ll learn how to operate the entertainment systems, connect to the high-speed wireless Internet, and adjust the climate control systems. Our concierge will be happy to arrange your dinner reservations and daily activities. Your kids may sign up for Camp Grande, the resort’s child and teen day camp. Spa services at Spa Grande, the Grand Wailea’s award winning spa may also be arranged. Our staff will provide you with beach and pool towels each day at the resort and at the Ho’olei pool.
Once you’ve settled into your new Wailea home, you’ll start to notice the details. We believe that “everything speaks” and have professionally furnished the home with top rated furniture, custom bedding, luxurious mattresses, and original works of art. Lighting on dimmers, flat panel televisions, and an incredibly fast wireless Internet system are there for you as well. Enjoy the fabulous ocean view from the living, dining or kitchen areas or open the Fleetwood sliding glass doors and enjoy indoor/outdoor living on the large lanai.
The chef’s kitchen includes two Sub-Zero refrigerators, four freezer drawers, granite counter tops, a Dacor gas range, microwave, and convection oven. We’ve thought of everything….from a wok to a waffle iron. There are more than enough settings for eight guests. For a celebration dinner, consider having our concierge arrange a private chef and watch a professional prepare your meal in the comfort of your own home. On the upper lanai, a six burner Wolf gas grill with an additional refrigerator is there for your BBQ meal while enjoying the ocean view.
The comfortable, contemporary design of Kanani lends itself to peaceful contemplation as you watch the amazing sunsets or a lively dinner with friends and family. We wanted the home to be visually impressive while remaining completely comfortable. It’s not easy to find a vacation rental home that is this thoughtfully done. When you include the Grand Wailea Resort’s service and facilities, you’ve just found the best of both!
In addition to staying in the best home at Ho'olei, our guests receive:
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!
We offer a discount from the Grand Wailea's regular rates at Ho'olei for those that find us on VRBO/HomeAway or at MyMauiVillas.com.
