Property description

Welcome to paradise. A private, two bedroom, non-smoking condo at the Palms at Wailea with sweeping ocean views from Molokini to West Maui. It is not only one of the best views at The Palms but also in Wailea. The unit is located a leisurely 10-minute stroll from exclusive Keawakapu Beach (the 'Malibu of Maui') and The Shops At Wailea. It features ocean views from all rooms, with a large private lanai for discrete sunning, dining and relaxing.

Our unit has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen and approximately 1,200 square feet of interior space. The living room has an attached dining room and a large 300 square foot lanai with a fabulous panoramic ocean view. The kitchen has a retractable window that opens to a breakfast bar on the lanai. The master suite has a queen bed, private tiled shower and an ocean view from bed. The second bedroom also has a queen bed and a separate private bathroom with shower. The wall to this bedroom can be retracted to open it into the living area for additional space and ocean views. Only the master bedroom has air conditioning, but there are ceiling fans in every room, and ample floor fans to keep things comfortable.

This unit is our private retreat from the mainland. We bought it in 2013 and have been methodically updating it to suit us and our guests. We bought new furnishings for the living room and dining area in August 2014 -- a dining room table and chairs that seat six and the living room set includes a queen sleeper sofa with a very comfortable 8 inch thick mattress and pillow top and two large comfy chairs. In fall 2014, we added UV blocking blinds and replaced all of the carpeting with new tile floors. In spring 2015, we replaced the master bathroom shower/tub with a new walk-in tiled shower featuring a turtle motif in honor of the Hawaii's honu. In spring 2016, we plan to renovate the kitchen.

Unlike many other units, ours has never been in a rental pool, there is no road noise, and there are no obstructed views. A whole house (six-speaker) stereo music system and light dimmers in each room allow you to set the perfect atmosphere throughout the unit. This unit is great for honeymooners or those seeking a memorable island getaway. If you leave the windows open at night, you can wake to the sound of the ocean waves crashing on the shore.

Feel free to leave the solar blinds and windows open day and night to enjoy remarkable privacy and the natural sights, sounds and fresh island breezes. Bring your laptop for a wireless internet connection in any room. Awake in bed to the light of a Maui morning and possibly spot a whale breaching on the horizon during whale season. Toast the end of a perfect day with a panoramic Maui sunset from your private table on the lanai. This is a unit that would be classified as a superior-deluxe, ocean view unit at any major resort.

The unit is meticulously maintained to a high level of detail, cleanliness and ambience. This assures no negative surprises each time you visit. Welcome to The Palms. Your escape to paradise!

Car: Recommended

Our property is located in beautiful Wailea in South Maui. South Maui is known for the best weather on Maui with much less rain than in West Maui. We are a short walk or even a shorter drive to Keawakapu Beach, which is the northern end of a three-mile stretch of beaches spanning from Polo Beach in the south, through Wailea Beach and Ulua Beach, to end with Keawakapu Beach. It is a great beach for small children who are trying the ocean for the first time, and the afternoons often bring bigger waves for boogie boarding and ocean play for the bigger kids.

We have boogie boards in our unit, but for those wanting to try other water sports, you can rent paddle boards, snorkeling equipment, and kayaks throughout South Maui. There are beachside rentals at Polo Beach and Wailea Beach. South of Polo Beach are the beaches of Makena, featuring the famous Big Beach--known for its big waves. Ulua is well-known for its snorkeling if you go early in the morning, but there are lots of colorful fish and some turtles around the coral and rocks at the south end of Keawakapu Beach.

The Shops at Wailea are located less than a mile south of our unit, with multiple restaurants and lots of shopping. There are more restauarants just up the hill from the shops and at all of the resorts south of us. Most of them have amazing sunet views.

Just a couple of miles north of our unit is the start of the town of Kihei, with a variety of shops and restaurants and multiple beaches.
