Please tell us about your experience
Well, sadly we had to leave paradise and return to reality. I just wanted to say again how impressed we were with the home. It was amazing! Everything was just perfect. And the service from you, Daisy, Eric, and Lolita was superb! I really hope we can stay again sometime in the future.
Thanks again for everything,
What a wonderful place to spend a vacation, even nicer than the pictures. Beautiful townhouse with many upscale amenities. Just sit back and enjoy! The pool area was very nice, even more inviting after sunset as the area is lit up with torches. You'll be just a short walk to the Wailea beach area. This is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The townhouse had several beach chairs and towels that you could use as well. There are many places to shop and eat within a short walking distance. Would I recommend this as a vacation place, an easy "yes". Cheers!
I just want to thank you all for making my stay at your beautiful home a very memorable one. Eric was very helpful and made sure everything went smoothly. Thank you! We wish we could have stayed in Maui longer so we can relax at the lanai and use the kitchen and grill. Anyhow, I hope everything was okay upon our departure and hopefully I'll be able to stay at one of your many beautiful homes again.
You Must Stay Here
We arrived at the "Maui House", as my son still calls it, in Jan 2010. We walked into this fabulous townhouse with our jaws hitting the floor. The place is more beautiful than the pictures could ever portray. The house was spotless from floor to ceiling. All 3 of the bedrooms had their own bathrooms which was so nice since we were traveling with extended family. We could have our own privacy. The kitchen is to.die.for! There is an elevator for people who would need it. They had a pack n' play and strollers, along with beach toys all ready for us to use since we were traveling with our 2 small children. The pool at ho'olei is perfect for EVERYONE, including our 9 month old. The beach is across the street and everything seems to be so conveniently located. I wish we could live here year round. These are town houses, but when you are inside, you do not even notice (or hear) the neighbors. The layout is perfect.
Our Home Away from Home
We have been to Maui every year since about 1990. This home in the Ho'olei is so well equipped and comfortable that we actually spent more time at home than out exploring. Family meals on the lanai, time around the pool and just hanging out in the unit made this our most relaxing vacation ever. We will definitely be back. Tim and Nancy
This Was Paradise
At age 73, I was finally getting to step foot on the Hawaiin Islands - Maui most particularly - and thanks to our lovely accomodations at Ho'olei, it was worth the wait! We were celebrating our 5th anniversary (one of those sweet "second time around" kind) and I'd secretly arranged for Lolita to have strawberries and champagne waiting for us. We were greeted us with fresh flowers, fresh fruit and the biggest, sweetest strawberries we've ever put our mouths around. Every room took our breath away....the livingroom with exquisite furniture, the huge lanai disappearing doors brought the palms, sky and water into the room...the huge tasteful master surrounded by outdoor tropical plants and trees had the grandest bathroom and oh so convenient dressing room. Enough room (and hangers!) to empty the suitcases. My husband has a somewhat difficult time negotiating stairs, but the cute, tiny elevator made him feel decadent, not disabled! And the kitchen! The cabinets were gorgeous and so finely constructed, you barely needed to close them yourself - the doors and drawers slid silently back to position with merely a touch. Lovely dishes, glassware, and silver made even bagels and juice feel like a banquet! Daisy, Eric and Lolita were wonderful and so helpful - especially when our convertible top wouldn't lower! I don't know if we will return, but if the fates allow, it will be to Ho'olei in a heartbeat. There should be a 10-star category - it was that perfect for us. The location, while not "on" the water couldn't have been lovlier - it felt as if we were in our own treehouse with the blue Pacific just a few hundred yards away reflecting glorious sunsets (we certainly used up a lot of digital space camera space from that balcony!) Sara has thought of everything for your comfort and pleasure, and Chrissy is an absolute delight in making the experience happen. What a nice family - we truly felt like cherished guests in their private home. It doesn't get that much better than that in Paradise.
What a Nice Place
Truly a spectacular home with wonderful amenities. I can't say enough about the property and surrounding area. Close to pool and workout room. First class. Very convenient to have a connected garage.
We just got done renting your place on Maui, unit 12-6. I just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful, wonderful time. My wife and I and my family really, really enjoyed your place. It was beautiful and better than we expected. The accommodations were great. The location was awesome and the unit itself was beautiful. I just wanted to let you know that we really, really enjoyed it. I even had some family members come down for my birthday and they all commented how beautiful the place was too. Great time! We really appreciated all the hospitality that you did for us. We will be renting your place for next time!
My husband is Maui born and raised, we had to stay at a property this year since my brother in law is staying at my inlaws while building a home so for the first time we had to stay at a condo and we have a large family and needed space. We have now concluded after our great accomodations, that we no longer want to stay at the inlaws and either buy or stay in this unit! We highly recommend Hoolei, we know Maui probabaly better than any other all its back areas, hiking, places to eat and stay and overall you are never going to find a place better than this!!! The pool has no congestion, the extra amenities for beach items provided and all other items it is vacation turnkey do not miss out! Maui No Ka Oi is the saying for the island but truly Hoolei No Ka Oi is our feeling.

Date: 09-10-2010What a great vacation we had! I've been meaning to write you and thank you for allowing us to rent your beautiful property. My sister and I had so much fun reconnecting and sharing our experiences on being moms. The children loved the pool and our husbands loved the outdoor grill. The location was fabulaous and all of the staff were amazing. It was the best family vacation we have ever taken. Thank you for making it possible. Warmest Regards, Nhat
On a scale of 1 to 10, this home was a 10+++. If there was ever a doubt, Ho’olei was a perfect choice for our family to visit Maui. We truly enjoyed our stay. The staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating
Again, thanks. Peter Niederman | Chief Executive Officer Kentwood Real Estate
Magnificient Home in Wailea, Maui
Beautiful home in Ho'olei, Wailea Maui. Home is as advertised. Photos do not do this home enough justice. Home was in perfect condition upon arrival. Local staff is fantastic. All my pre-booking questions were answered to my satisfaction. I plan to rent from owners again! And, have already recommended owners and property to friends and co-workers. This is a great home in a great locale!
Hey Chrissy and Sarah
I had a great time at your Kaanapali Condo. What a dream it is to wake up early in the morning, walk to the beach and go for long swim or surf. Kaanapali is so unique for surfing. I can surf the south swells right out front, or drive up the coast ten minutes and surf the north swells . . . clean warm water . . . great trails for biking and running . . . for an outdoor lover like me Maui is great! Thanks for a wonderful AND affordable vacation!
Eric & Ann
All Your Hard Work
Thank you for all of your hard work and for championing me with your sister. You have been a delight to work with and hope that our paths will cross some time when we can actually meet in person. You seem like a fun and caring person to know.
Mahalo and Aloha
We had a great time in Maui made all the better by your beautiful townhome and the service we received by your staff. We will surely recommend your home to any of our friends heading to Wailea.
Mahalo and aloha,
We had a wonderfull time in Maui. Our daughter will have a lifetime of wedding memories. The Ho'olie unit far exceeded our expectations, a spectacular unit. We invited the wedding party over for brunch on Sunday morning and the unit was a big hit. There was plenty of room for everyone. Our son used the golf cart to shuttle us to and from the beach every day. He was very happy we included it, so are we. Our kids recommend that we rent it next year, same days, to celebrate their first anniversity.
Lee and Marlynn
You know, you are very lucky to have someone like Daisy helping with all the repetitive details involved in taking care of all your visitors! I am impressed with her attitude and cheerful outlook! Take good care of her; she is a rare treasure!
Well, sadly we had to leave paradise and return to reality. I just wanted to say again how impressed we were with the home. It was amazing! Everything was just perfect. And the service from you, Daisy, Eric, and Lolita was superb! I really hope we can stay again sometime in the future.
Thanks again for everything,
I have been meaning to sit down and write this email since we got home last week. We had such a wonderful time at your family's condo at the Ho'olei. It is a beautiful home in a glorious location. Thank you so much for all your attention to detail -- from supplying the high chairs (better than the ones we have at home!) to the playpens to gettting a baby gate on a moment's notice and, of course, to the early check-in which was so wonderful since the GW reservations failed to get us in before 4:00pm!
Most of all, though, I want to thank you for the generosity and care that you showed our family on the day of the tsunami alert. You don't even know us and yet welcomed and encouraged us to enjoy your beautiful home (mansion!) in the mountains, far away from any potential danger. It was a wonderful day and a special memory from our vacation. We are so grateful and feel so blessed to have connected with your family. You are truly special people, the likes of which it is easy to begin to believe do not exist in today's hustle and bustle world where even neighbors remain strangers. Your act of kindness to our family, and the others you rescued that day, is a treasured gift that we will never forget.
Thank you again so much. I will be recommending you all to all my friends as the "go-to" people for a rental on Maui!
Our Stay in the Vineyard
Sara and Chrissy,
Our stay in the Vineyard last week was absolutely wonderful! What an incredible house you have - it couldn't have been more perfect. Great
location, quiet yet not far from the action, etc. Al and Myrna were so sweet and helpful. Gail came one afternoon and cooked us an unbelievable clambake -
everyone was raving and she couldn't have been more accommodating. Please contact us should you ever need a referral.
Thank you again for all of your help in creating such an enjoyable environment for us, for answering the multiple questions we had beforehand, we really
Denise has said it all. Your home is priceless and our only regret is that our stay was so short. I will spread the word among our closest friends if You let me. I hope we have a chance to meet some day.
We are preparing to leave tomorrow. We had a great time, and all members of my family want to convey to you, Sara, and Scott that we had a really outstanding vacation at this wonderful property.
We would like to reserve a week next summer.
Once again, I want to emphasize that there were so many nice touches, both large and small, in the design of the property that made our vacation delightful. At times, it seemed that the place was designed exactly for our family!
Thank you so much. I will look forward to hearing further from you about finalizing a week for next summer.
Nathan O. calling, we just got done renting your place on Maui, unit 12-6. I just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful, wonderful time. My wife and I and my family really, really enjoyed your place. It was beautiful and better than we expected. The accommodations were great. The location was awesome and the unit itself was beautiful. I just wanted to let you know that we really, really enjoyed it. I even had some family members come down for my birthday and they all commented how beautiful the place was too. Great time! We really appreciated all the hospitality that you did for us. We will be renting your place for next time!
Well, this vacation is over. Although it was way too short, but is this not the case with all vacations? We all had a very memorable trip to Maui.
My birthday trip and vacation would not have been the same without your help and assistance-thank you very much. Please thank Daisy for me too! I want to make a special point of thanking Eric and Lolita for the wonderful airport greeting and very warm Aloha assistance they provided my parents. Scott and Sarah are very fortunate to have Eric and Lolita working for them! Please pass along my warmest Mahalo's to both Eric and Lolita.
The home (Ho'olei S-6) was fantastic and enjoyed by all members of my family. Please keep my contact info and should you ever need a referral for the homes offered by your family, I would be very happy to assist. I will return to work tomorrow, but my thoughts will still be of Ho'olei S-6 and Maui. I am already thinking of my next trip to Maui.
Great Get Away
Just got back on Nov. 29, 2010.
The house was amazing as was the pool.
Spent a lot of time there. House was very private and QUIET.
Would definitely recommend this property to anyone.
Hey Sara and Chirssy,
Fabulous!!! We had the most wonderful time, and staying in your lovely place(s) was one of the main reasons that everything went so smoothy. The wedding was "almost perfect", and both bride and groom are still in a state of bliss - and that's the best thing.
The units were both gorgeous, and so clean and well-appointed - we cooked several meals during our stay, and so enjoyed the easy access to everything in the kitchen. I want those cabinets!!!
Our guests were amazed and delighted with their accomodations, and we all enjoyed the lanais, and especially so in S-6, where the sliding doors disappeared into the walls and brought the lanai right into the great room . . . so beautiful.
The children involved (two babies, one four months and the other three months) were comfortable and happy, as were their parents. The pool was lovely, and both babies "swam" for the first time with their mothers. Everyone at the complex was polite and friendly, and the pool staff in particular was warm and helpful - each and every one.
I didn't have the opportunity to meet anyone there on site except Eric, who was most hospitable and kind while showing us around on our arrival. I'd like you to know that after our long plane trip, and a few anxious moments when my wallet disappeared temporarily at the car rental agency in Kahalui, Eric's calm presence, friendly smile, and helpful service was much appreciated.
Thank you again for all of your help, and for helping to make our "destination wedding" the best! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and so did our guests.
Great Condo in Great Location
I stayed here with my son, his fiance, and my daughter while making wedding arrangements. The condo is great. It's very spacious, clean and in a great location. The kitchen has everything you'd need if you want to stay in and cook. The patio has a great BBQ and nice table, we had our coffee out there every morning and watched the sun come up. You can walk to Whaler's Village and the beach. The pool area at the condo is very nice and was not very crowded while we were there and we were there in August. The owner was very nice and very helpful and her staff is very friendly. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this condo to anyone. We plan on returning to Maui and will definitely stay here again.
Details, Comfort, and Customer Service
Longing to return to your beautiful Kaanapali condo is the best endorsement you can receive from your guests. That is how I’ve been feeling since returning from my two week stay. I can’t wait to come back. It’s not just about the wonderful accommodations you offer. It’s the way you care and treat each of your guests and all the special things you do to make them feel welcome. Lolita was awaiting our arrival, warmly greeted us at the door and showed us around the condo (making sure we knew how to work the front door key and the TV remote). On the entrance table was a handwritten note from Chrissy wishing us a lovely Maui vacation, along with toiletries from L’Occitane, a vase of white lilies on the kitchen counter and a Maui Gold pineapple – such a nice way to begin your stay! The location is perfect. Being able to walk to the Whaler’s Village and enjoy all the free activities it offers throughout the week was fantastic. And you can’t ask for a better beach than the Kaanapali Beach. What a joy it was to watch my grandson ride the waves on his boogie board and see a sea turtle leisurely swimming past him. Most evenings we enjoyed sitting on the lanai and waiting to view the spectacular Maui sunsets. Thank you so much for providing such a comfortable place for your guests to enjoy. It has truly been a memorable vacation and a pleasure working with each of you.
Bachelorette Weekend Success!
14 women from around the country met at this beautiful home to celebrate one lovely lady and her upcoming nuptials! We enjoyed the spacious great room/ kitchen combination with a beautiful view- Eating lobsters at the LONG table where all were comfortable was a delight! The beds were heavenly! Lots of little spaces to sit with close friends and reconnect! Everything was perfect!
Thank you Chrissy & Sara
LOVED unit 12-2
Hi Chrissy, we LOVED unit 12-2 so close to the pool and gate. It was so gorgeously furnished and so comfortable. We are SO sad to leave, thank you and we'll be in touch.
The Place is Gorgeous
I just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to let you know we had a wonderful time staying at your place in Wailea. It was perfect in every way for our family – and we will come back... perhaps as early as next year (and stay longer!). Seriously, we couldn’t imagine any improvements to our accommodation, location, etc. Thanks so much!
Hope you don’t mind if we contact you again when it’s time to return – you’re at the top of our list!!!
Sincerely, Ian and Jen
Thank You Again
I can't say enough good things about our stay at Ho'olei this past Memorial Day. Everything was absolutely perfect. Both units were gorgeous and accommodated us in every way. All of our family and guests felt right at home and pampered at the same time! We entertained others on two occasions using the grill both times. We stopped at Costco to buy a whole rib-eye which one of our family, being an ex butcher, cut into about 25 steaks. What a feast in such beautiful surroundings! We all languished by the pool on a few afternoons and evenings, even ordering pizza and Italian hoagies from Shaka once. Our son's wedding at the Grand Wailea Chapel with dinner and reception at The Four Seasons Spago was the highlight of our trip. I can go on and on!!
I want to thank you and yours for all you did to make our stay an "experience of a lifetime" and something we will remember forever. Please forward this and extend our sincere appreciation to all involved.
I look forward to a day when we can do business together again!
Mary Ann and Jay
Thank you all for your assistance in making our family get together a success. We all had a great time. Besides just relaxing on the balcony, we thoroughly enjoyed our family dinners at your beautiful townhomes. It is a lot easier to talk and tell family stories in a private environment. Having two homes, so that we could all have our own space, was a wonderful suggestion.
Your group was great to work with, and I will recommend you to anyone who asks me about planning a Hawaiian vacation!
Tim Hill and Family
Nothing beats the opulence of Ho'olei!!
This was our third timing staying at Ho'olei through Chrissy and Sara (we stayed at two other Ho'olei units and finally this unit). The unit was fabulous and nothing short of opulent. We had friends staying at the Wailea Beach Villas and after visiting them, my wife and I agreed that our unit was better! This unit was equipped with everything under the sun and felt so much larger than the two other Ho'olei units we had stayed at previously (although those units did have a bedroom with two queens which has worked to our advantage in the past). One thing I have noticed is that the plant foliage has matured significantly to the point where each unit is given ample privacy despite being next to one another. The grounds are so immaculate and the tone carries throughout the entire complex. Eric and Daisy were always available for anything that we needed (basically making us feel like royalty). We hope to be back next year! (if, of course, you'll have us :-)) Thanks again for another wonderful and memorable vacation!!

Fantastic Family Reunion
We had a wonderful vacation at this gorgeous rental home in Katama, and I would like to recommend this home highly. Definitely one of our favorite places we have stayed as a family, and the location of the home was ideal for us, as it is a short walk to south beach, or a fun, easy bike ride into Edgartown. One of our favorite things to start our day with was just that, a bike ride into Edgartown for coffee and/or breakfast, and some exercise (many many bikes to choose from, as they were provided with the house). My wife and I loved riding the beach cruisers, although we did give the tandem bike a try too. The home is quite spacious, nicely appointed, and very comfortable, and it accommodated our big group of families, for our mini-reunion of sorts. Plenty of comfortable rooms upstairs and downstairs for adults, with privacy and separation when you needed quiet time (there is a cottage as well, with two more rooms available). At the end of the day, we all ended up in the kitchen/large family room upstairs (which we called the Great Room), which has a very beautiful, and large wooden dining table that could seat us all, and we much appreciated being able to do that without dividing our crew up at dinner time. This is the largest, brightest room in the house and where we all seemed to congregate and had lots of laughs, meals, wine, and even impromptu dance parties that the kids put on! great memories created, although I think I pulled something trying to do an old dance move from long ago. There is a deck just off of this room which was a good place to relax, or read in the sun, and made it easy for us to watch the kids swim in the pool just below as we prepared meals. The Great Room was our favorite room, although I think my wife's favorite might have been the sauna! Everything we needed was provided with the house, and the owners were very friendly and helpful with the whole process. Great stay, beautiful home, we all definitely want to make a return stay here in summers to come!
Best trip ever (written by 8 year old)
Are you looking for a place to go on vacation? Well, Martha's Vineyard is the place for you. There are many great houses, hotels, restaurants, beaches, stores, towns and bike paths but one house stands out: this one! You, your family and friends will flip out when they get here! There is a volleyball court, soccer field, croquet set, pool, open space for wiffle ball, kick ball, pickle and other fun yard games, bunk bed room and more! The best thing is that the place is fenced off so if you have a little kid they can't go anywhere unless you open the gate. It's a short walk to South Beach and you can ride your bike everywhere. We rode our bikes to the best breakfast place at the airport and saw a plane take off. There are rock driveway and paths around the house so wear shoes so you don't hurt your feet. (My mom says the rocks are cool and that it's called crushed gravel.) Despite that, the house is perfect because if you have more than one kid there is a bunk bed room and a bunk bed in the guest house. My brother and I slept in the guest house - it was our own private suite! The property is very clean and the landlords are kid friendly. If you come here you will have the time of your life.

Dream Vacation Estate
I couldn't believe my eyes when we drove up! Green lawns, white fencing, flower boxes and a gorgeous home and guest house. This home couldn't have been more perfect for our party of six adults and four children. We had comfortable suites that gave us so much privacy. The upstairs living room, dining room and kitchen area couldn't have been more perfect. I loved the fact that this area opened onto huge decks. We loved being able to eat outside so easily. And the barbeque was conveniently located right beside the kitchen. The sun room ended up being a favorite reading spot for everyone. The pool and sun deck were a huge hit and the jacuzzi was a pleasant surprise! I have to say, I didn't expect the beach to be so close. What a bonus...just a short walk. It was a toss up everyday...a bike ride into Edgartown? Or a day at the beach? Or just lounge by the pool? Or a game of sand volleyball? This was truly a dream vacation. The home is very elegant but at the same time you feel right "at home". It was so clean and well appointed. My only regret was our stay was far too short. Well, we'll just have to return next year!!! Thank you so much!!!
Jan Bryan, Paia, Maui. HI
What an incredible vacation we had! Like no other rental!
We had a family reunion here in August - 17 of us. The house, property and location couldn't have been better. The owners have spent a significant amount of time and money in decorating and equipping this house to make it feel luxurious (yet homey and comfortable) and include every amenity you could imagine. This is like no other house we have ever rented before - you would never think you were at a rental property. Even extras like the multiple bicycles and helmets, beach towels, clamming equipment, etc. were a huge plus. At one point we even asked if they could provide more beach chairs and there were 4 more there that afternoon! The staff is there every day to clean and to be of any assistance to you. They were incredibly sweet and helpful.
Denise, Reading, MA
We had a fabulousss vacation at the Ho'olei villa! The condo was amazing. I thought the pictures on the website were beautiful but then when I got into the condo we were even more amazed. The location, the interior decorating and everything inside the condo was top quality. The pool at the Ho'olei was also very beautiful and relaxing. It is in a great location to walk to the other hotels for great restaraunts. I would highly recommend staying here!
Sunny, Martinez, CA
Amazing home + location
We're just back from a week at the Ho'Olei villa. The unit is well-appointed and very clean. We had the perfect amount of space for my husband and I, our son and our nanny. And the location is very close to the Grand Wailea and the shops. I highly recommend this villa because it's SO close to the beach, as compared to other villas. We walked down to watch the sunset every night! It was perfect.
Condo in Paradise
Wow. What a great place to stay while in Maui! The photos & description of the condo were spot on -- it was clean & stocked with the basics plus every necessary utensil to cook, if so desired. The location of the condo was perfect -- within walking distance to major hotels & shopping. Many great restaurants in the vicinity. Short walk to the beach -- we used the beach at the Grand Wailea Hotel which is the closest hotel to the condo. Lovely beach. All beaches are public in Hawaii so everyone is welcome. Speaking of the Grand Wailea, we ate at a delicious restaurant there -- Amasia. There are so many restaurants within walking distance -- Migrant at Wailea Marriott (Sheldon Simeon's restaurant -- he was a finalist on the tv show Top Chef), Morimoto and Ka'Ana (both at Andaz). Andaz is one of the most amazing hotels we've ever seen -- modern with Asian touches. Numerous golf courses are minutes away by car. Tennis courts, too. Some in our family rented paddle boards right on the beach. We did a whale-watching boat tour & saw many whales & dolphins. We got onto the boat on the Grand Wailea beach -- so easy & convenient. Our time in Maui at Ho'olei condo was perfect. We had our adult sons & wives with us -- we were 6 adults & the condo was ideal. Separate bedrooms all with their own bathroom. We would very much recommend staying there -- we would love to go back again soon!

Tired of winter
This is an incredible property. It was everything it was billed to be and more. The location is just about perfect, a short walk to the beach but still very private and quiet. The unit was beautifully furnished with fascinating artwork. The kitchen was perfectly outfitted with more than enough dishes, glasses etc. We enjoyed visiting all of the beaches from those at the south end of the island to Ulua Beach just north of Wailea. We enjoyed an incredible snorkel trip out to Molokini that we booked through Snorkel Bob's. Our favorite dinner out was at the Halimali General Store. The owners were great about answering questions. We found that the grocery service was wonderful for the start of our vacation. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and family.
Spectacular Vacation Rental!
This past winter was our first experience with the Innovar Team and the T2 unit at the Ho’olei. Due to our children’s severe food allergies, I joke to my husband our usual vacations are just a “change of location”, since I cook every meal. Not at the Ho‘olei. The magnificent, well equipped, kitchen inspired me to not only prepare the basics, but to bake cookies and muffins as well. For our 3 weeks I aspired to be a culinary artist and have fond memories of BBQing on the lanai, (wine glass in hand of course), while our children played in the adjacent living room. The convenience of the outdoor fridge and open concept architecture made my efforts more enjoyable.
A Serene Holiday on the Exotic Beaches of Wialea
Our holiday at the Hoolei Resort in Wialea was one of serenity. Upon our booking we were directed to the website for the location and listing of the property. We spoke with Daisy and Chrissy who were both wonderful and extremely helpful in setting up the reservations and answering any pertinent questions we had. Upon opening the photos, we could not believe the beauty and amenities that the home had to offer. Upon our arrival we realized that the home was even more gorgeous than could ever be reflected in the photographs. It was immaculately maintained, cleaned and the grounds surrounding were unbelievably well groomed. The purpose of our trip to Maui was for a family wedding. The accommodations were luxurious for the 9 individuals that shared the home for our weeklong stay. We would highly recommend this property for a friend or relative. The Hotel Wailea is across the street and beachfront, meaning that it was only a 3 minute walk to one of the nicest beaches on the island. We were also able to utilize some of the activities offered at the Hotel Wailea such as their introductory scuba diving course. The resort was also a short walk to the shops of Wailea, numerous golf courses and first class eating establishments. If you are planning a holiday in Maui, this listing should definitely be your first choice!!
R&V, Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Canada
This place was great! Beautiful, modern, immaculately clean, every amenity. There were 7 of us and we all enjoyed our stay very much. Close to beach and a great pool. One very minor drawback was that the lanai faced a busy road and while we couldn't really see the road due to lovely backyard plantings, it was a bit noisy. But we would definitely stay here again if we are ever lucky enough to return to Maui!
Deanna B, Wisconsin
Amazing place with amazing service!
We had the fortune of staying at this luxurious unit at Ho'olei. This has been our second time to Ho'olei and our second time renting from Sara. The unit is huge and has all the luxuries one could ever wish for. The decadence spills over to the pool which is great for young children (our three kids had a blast). Chrissy, Daisy, and Eric took excellent care of us while we were there. The unit is equipped with every beach toy imaginable (with tommy bahamas chairs and umbrella). Thanks for a memorable vacation and we hope to be back next year!!

We had an incredible vacation at Chrissy's place in Maui.
This is an amazing house with over the top amenities and an unsurpassed attention to detail. The Kitchen is quite breathtaking, and we took notes back on what our remodel should look like. It is incredibly spacious, and our group of 4 adults and 4 kids were very comfortable in it. We were often tempted to spend the entire day in the spacious patio. Chrissy and her staff were very helpful and made the process of renting the place very easy and painless.
The proximity to the amazing wailea beach (2 min walk) and the Grand Wailea hotel is a big plus. There are great restaurants close by (we recommend monkeypod).
This is a fabulous place and Chrissy is awesome. We will definitely be back!

I was put in charge of organizing a family trip to Maui. With 6 adult couples to please, this was going to be tough. And then .... this listing! It looked ideal and this owner also owned the unit next door. But could experience be as good as the pictures? The experience was even better. What a perfect setting! In short, the things the whole family loved were:
The Location - We toured a unit for sale further up the hill and the view was better but that walk to the beach everyday would not have been fun. This unit was right by the pool and the closest walk in Ho'olei to the beach.
Clean - Very clean! Well equipped - we ate in several times and had everything we needed. The chairs for the beach were great.
The rental team - they were very organized, professional and extremely helpful.
Beautifully decorated 4 bathroom per unit - this was HUGE for privacy.
Fruit basket upon arrival - such a classy touch
Enclosed garage - great place to leave an open car, golf clubs, etc.
Spacious living areas --- inside, outside and with the doors wide open for the combination. Awesome.
The pool was very nice too and there is a refridgerator there for your drinks.

Exceeded our expectations
We stayed at this property in April 2014 with our family including our 2 boys aged 8 and 10.
Eric met us at the airport and could not have been more helpful, he is a real asset! The unit was in perfect condition when we arrived and really felt like a 5 star hotel. We all enjoyed the lovely balcony and gas BBQ as well as the pool and close proximity to the beach.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a stress free vacation.

A Fabulous Home Away from Home
We rented this property for two weeks in December 2014 and our family of 5 met up from all parts of the globe to spend the holiday season together. It was everything we had hoped for and more! Eric checked us in and ensured that all our queries were answered before we kicked off what was an amazing vacation in an amazing home and location. Our days started with early morning gym visits, followed by energizing walks all through Wailea with a stop off at Honolulu Coffee before we went back home to get ready for the day. The beach was just across the street so it was easy to pack a cooler and head out for the day. Days ended with a dip in the pool and a soak in the jacuzzi. The villa itself is beautiful. Well equipped and beautifully decorated- we lived in luxury while there. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped and we always cooked a meal together at the end of the day and enjoyed dinner on the balcony. Beach chairs, cooler, snorkel gear,picnic basket, beach toys and towels...everything was there. We are a family of 5 adults and the home was more than spacious enough for us all. It truly is a beautiful home away from home. We really enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend this home.
“A multi generation family vacation”
This trip was a special birthday with our adult children. We loved our home in Maui, it was beautiful, well appointed and perfect in every single way possible. Extremely comfortable, and allowed all to have their own space while also sharing space. We loved it and were sad to leave. We felt well taken care of and upon our arrival we were met by staff to make sure we were comfortable. We were 3 adult couples the space worked perfectly, and we loved the pool and the staff at the pool was helpful as well. The beach was totally close and wonderful too. We would go back in a heartbeat. We could not recommend anything better!
