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.
Hoku means “Star” in Hawaiian and our guests immediately see why Hoku is appropriately named as soon as they walk through the front door. Professionally designed with furnishings sourced from the finest makers around the world and wall colors that have been custom blended to this design pallet to enrich the senses, Hoku is by far one of the best residences in Ho’olei.
Hoku is situated just above the fabulous pool area, the serene sounds of the waterfalls below along with the nightly torch lighting add to the visual ambiance. Open the large Fleetwood sliding glass doors and turn on the fans as you enjoy the over- sized, well equipped lanai while watching the sunset over the ocean. The large granite table is perfect for enjoying an outdoor barbeque meal, prepared by you on your Wolf grill, complete with rotisserie and a small Sub-Zero refrigerator.
We’ve included complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access throughout the home and free local telephone service. Each room has a flat screen television, digital cable and high definition cable channels. The living room is a top favorite with guest and includes an amazing Bose entertainment system with DVD and surround sound. We’ve even included board games and a DVR with the cable box so that you can record your favorite shows for later viewing after a long day on the beach.
There’s a one-car garage with an additional parking space just steps from the garage. From the garage entrance you may go directly to the elevator to load your groceries and luggage. This ultimate convenience is perfect for those who may have trouble with stairs. The laundry room includes a full sized Whirlpool washer and dryer, so you may pack light and avoid those pesky airline baggage charges! Don’t worry about renting beach gear, as we’ve got you covered with umbrellas, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels, bags and coolers.
Each of the three bedrooms includes a flat panel television and en-suite bath. Thick carpeting, dual glazed Fleetwood sliding glass doors and extra insulation ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. Bose Wave Radios with iPod connections are included. The master bedroom includes an amazing Vera Wang mattress along with 1000 thread-count sheets. The water for the oversized tub comes from the ceiling! The master bedroom is actually bigger than an entire standard hotel room and is connected to a private lanai. Enjoy your coffee or read a book on this very comfortable Brown Jordan outdoor living space. Feel the Zen like energy of this special area with Buddha’s who sit with you in this gorgeous space. Our guests have defined this bedroom as a sanctuary.
The professionally equipped kitchen will take your breath away. We’ve thought of everything, from the waffle iron to the popcorn popper, you will have what you need to create a fabulous meal. Top of the line appliances including two Sub-Zero refrigerators and a gas range surrounded by beautiful granite counter tops and Snaidero cabinetry will inspire you to create the perfect meal. Don’t feel like cooking and want to stay home? No problem – our concierge staff will arrange a personal chef to do the shopping and prepare your gourmet meal in the privacy of your Maui villa. If you'd like, we’ll also do the grocery shopping for you prior to your arrival.
Why You Should Consider Our Home:
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, you need to understand (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.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Hoku at Ho'Olei
LOVE LOVE LOVE Hoku at Ho'Olei
This was our 2nd stay in Hoku at Ho'Olei and we are going back twice next year! Amenities in the unit are spectacular! The staff is so professional and helpful and housekeeping did an amazing job. Including the Grand Wailea access is completely worth it. Most days we would head over to the Grand in the morning (make sure to go by 9am to get good chairs) and then the later afternoons and evenings we would spend at the Ho'Olei pool which is less crowded, beautiful and perfect for relaxing. There is also a sand area in the Ho'Olei pool for the kiddos. If you don't feel like making the short walk across the street to the Grand there is a shuttle at Hol'Olei that will drop you off and pick you up right away (from your doorstep to the entrance at the Grand). They are just a phone call away. We would highly recommend Hoku at Ho'Olei and wish there was a better way to get the word out about this fabulous Villa. Plenty of room for large families or two smaller families. This is truly a home away from home but BETTER! It is so nice to have all of the amenities and extra room while on vacation. It was also my birthday while we were at Hoku and the staff helped my husband in coordinating a surprise cake to be delivered to our villa and when we came back from dinner there it was... and it was delicious! We have stayed at other resorts when visiting Maui in the past and this is by far the BEST! (There is also an elevator in the unit for people who aren't good with stairs or to carry all the groceries from the garage to the upper level) :)

Gorgeous Wailea Villa
Gorgeous Wailea Villa
We are lucky enough to visit Maui/Wailea once per year and have found the most amazing villa to stay in with our family. This particular property is absolutely stunning. Beautifully decorated, perfectly cleaned, high-end art work, full-stocked gourmet kitchen, and attention to every detail throughout the house, make this the perfect home away from home. With a young family, we are after comfort and ease when traveling, and this particular villa provides everything we need...and then some! I highly recommend this unit, and we can't wait to visit again.

Thank you very much for such an opportunity to stay at your luxury, Modern Maui home. Upon arrival to the Ho’Holei complex we were whisked away to the unit. What a first impression! Walking upstairs and seeing the view get better with each step was an unexpected joy. Once I got over the view of the ocean and pool area I started to look around at the furnishings and décor. WOW! You have put together an exceptional property. I love the Koi Paintings and the Pablo Picasso print. Before I could get around seeing the entire home the staff had our bags in our bedroom and all the grocery bogs in the kitchen. With all the top-of-the line appliance and the fully stocked pantry with small appliances, dishes and cutlery it was easy to make any meal. The Italian cook book was an inspiration. A few meals were conjured up with a number of its recipes in mind. The Ho’Holei was able to provide a child safety gate for the stairs and a high chair for our little guy, a very helpful touch. They provided an excellent welcome and represent you and the Ho’Holei very professionally. Our stay over the ten days consisted of lounging around the Grand Wailea pool in the mornings and then transferring up to the pool at Ho’Holei for the afternoon. We were traveling with our one year old so we had lots of opportunity during nap time to walk up and down the ocean front paths. I have been to Maui probably ten times but mostly stayed at hotels and typical condo complexes, going forward I will only stay at the Ho’Holei. Next time we will bring family and friends to share your home.

THE BEST HOME TO STAY AT IN WAILEA!
THE BEST HOME TO STAY AT IN WAILEA!
The pictures of this home are beautiful but just wait until you walk in... BREATHTAKING! Staying here is like staying at your own personal Four Seasons. This is a perfect place for a family or a few couples. The bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious and comfortable. The kitchen has everything state of the art that you would want and more. The dining area and lanai off the kitchen are perfect for entertaining or just enjoying a casual meal. We had a private chef prepare a dinner party and it was a highlight of the trip. There are flat screen TV's and Bose CD players in every bedroom (and the living room of course). There are games to play and books to read. The shuttle service is so convenient - they are at the door to take you to the pool or beach within a couple of minutes of calling them - but the walk to either beach or pool is short. We have little kids and they did the walk multiple times a day. The staff are friendly and helpful. We can't wait to come back!

WOW! That was my first impression when we pulled into Ho'Olei and checked in, which is located right by the amazing pool/jacuzzi/waterfall! Super friendly associate greeted us and our kids. Offered refreshments. Kids were in awe of everything, how beautiful everything was. As we have traveled and stayed at many resort type places throughout the US, this place truly was an experience, and we have not even gotten to our condo yet! Upon arriving there, we were all truly speechless. The pictures and descriptions that you see online completely represent what we encountered, and maybe they do not show how great this place is. The kitchen itself has more small appliances and utensils than our own home has. There is not anything missing as we hired a private chef one night and he did not even have to use any of his equipment that he brought! Getting back to our initial speechlessness, when you walk up the stairs or take the elevator, the view you see at the top of the steps is exactly what the pictures look like. Every morning I could not wait to walk up those steps to see this view. Let alone the original artwork throughout, the top of the line furniture, amazing linens and other appointments that make you feel like you are in a five star hotel, but in the comforts of what feels like your own home. The Lanai is inspirational, huge BBQ, lounge chairs and a dining table, let alone the great scenic view of the ocean, and yet you can see down to the pool and check on the kids. There is also a very nice gym by the pool, morning coffee and tea, and you can also get a massage by pool. If you want to go to the beach, just call the front desk and they will pick you up and take you to the Grand Wailea where you can get a guest pass for everyday to their huge pool/waterslide or an umbrella on the beach or both. We rented paddle boards, took the kids on a traditional Hawaiian canoe ride and on both occasions saw giant turtles and dolphins. Call again and then you will get picked up to go back. Very convenient to be driven to and back to your condo after a day at the beach with all of our gear. This area offers a quite of bit of places to go out to eat also as everything is located quite near to Ho'Olei, including the Shops at Wailea. We shopped for groceries so we made breakfast every morning and took lunch to the beach which the kids really enjoyed versus doing all of this confined in a large hotel standing in line at the breakfast buffet or waiting for lunch. Awesome place

Great stayGuest comment entered by manager
Thank you for allowing our family to share in your beautiful home. We have been coming to Maui for many years, always staying at The Grand Wailea. Now that our kids are adults, we decided to stay in a home. We appreciated the many comforts of your home. As we say in Hawaii, Mahalo!

First time to Maui
“This was the first trip to the islands for my husband and I. Maui is beautiful! We came with my daughter, Kristie, her husband Matt and my daughter Lauren. We’ve had the time of our lives and we couldn’t have hoped to stay in a more beautiful setting or home. This is one of the most beautiful homes I’ve every stayed in. I’ve felt like a “queen for a day”…actually, ten days. Thank you for sharing your home with us!"

We had a wonderful week long stay in August 2011. Three generations stayed at this beautiful unit and everyone was comfortable and happy. As parents of young children, we loved the proximity to the Ho'olei pool and the easy door-to-door shuttle to the Grand Wailea Hotel. The Ho'olei pool never had more than a few families in it at any visit and was a welcome respite from the awesome chaos of the activity pool at the hotel. It was a happy accident for us that we rented a unit with user privileges at the Grand Wailea. Apparently not all units come with this perk, which you need to use the Grand Wailea pools and have signing privileges at the hotel restaurants and spa, etc. This unit is beautifully decorated and outfitted with plentiful kitchenware for cooking at home. The mattresses are super comfortable, every light is on dimmer and the bedrooms are quiet as can be. We were also very pleased with the Ho'olei staff, who booked us a snorkeling charter, gave us restaurant recommendations and reservations, and suggested small day trips. They were attentive and responsive. We would definitely come back to Ho'olei and specifically to this unit. It's fantastic!
