looking for luxury vacation rental near Wailea

Hi -

We are a three-generation family of five people looking for a very nice vacation rental somewhere around Wailea for at least a week, maybe two, next July.

We'd like to be on or very near the beach and have access to a pool. We need three bedroom and at least two bathrooms, full kitchen with all the mod cons, covered lanai, etc..

Snorkeling and walking are important to us, but not golf or tennis. A kiddie pool would be much appreciated.

Can anyone suggest a nice complex with the facilities we want? Last year we stayed in the Kolea complex in the Waikoloa Beach Resort on the Kona Coast of the Big Island and loved it. We'd go back, but thought it would be nice to try something different.

Thanks.

You can checkout the Ho'olei at Grand Wailea.

They are very upscale 3 bedroom condos behind the Grand Wailea resort. It is not on the beach, but it is supposed to be VERY nice, with nice pools. Plus I think it comes with access to the Grand Wailea pools. I think it is worth while for you to look into.

Remember too, the best most consistent ocean conditions during the summer months will be on the west/north side of the island. You may want to look for places there also if you are going to snorkel a lot. You may have some days of good snorkeling in the Wailea area but west Maui will be better.

Hey Elizabeth, fancy meetin' you here.

I'd check out the Wailea Beach Villas next door to the Grand Wailea.

But why Wailea? I wouldn't overlook West Maui. My family stayed at Kahana Village a few years ago, we took up about four of the villas and it was a great place.

If Kapalua had 3 bedroom units, I'd mention them too, but they don't so I won't. :)

Honua Kai is great too, but I think they are a bit overpriced, but you never know what kind of deal you might be able to get there.

Thank you so much everyone for your advice. I hadn't thought about West Maui, but I did some reading and it sounds perfect for us. At the moment we're holding a 3-bedroom villa at Kapalua Villas. Anyone have any comments on that spot? Pro or con equally welcome. Better we know now that after arrival :)

Cheers,

Kapalua Villas and Kapalua Bay are beautiful -- West Maui at that time of year will be great!

There is no where I'd rather be on Maui in July than Kapalua, except for maybe Hana!!

Wailea Beach Villas are fantastic. It must be one of the nicest places on Maui. They have 3 bedroom units. Wailea Beach is very nice.Family pool and adult pool. Just returned yesterday.
