The Maui Escape - Spectacular 2.5 Bdr Penthouse - Owner Direct!

Bedrooms 2
Space 2,200 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 5 - 10 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our villa offers an incredible location with a view of the pool and beautiful surroundings from the lanai and a staircase that leads directly down to the pool area and the path to the beach.

The Wailea Beach Villas nest in a sea of colorful plumerias and hibiscus, cascading waterfalls, two inviting pools, and beautiful tropical paths that lead to Wailea Beach and Hawaii's most incredible oceanside boardwalk.

'The Maui Escape', also referred to as 'Penthouse 110' is located with views of the upper pool and the spectacular garden surroundings. It provides the perfect combination of being close enough to view the pool but far enough for privacy. At night the ambiance from the lanai is breathtaking with incredible landscape lighting and tiki-torches scattered throughout the myriad of walking paths around the pool and spa area.

The Wailea Beach Villas are situated on 11 unparalleled and beautiful acres of lush, tropical landscaping while nestled between the Grand Wailea to the south, the Marriott Resort to the north, the 'Shops at Wailea' (which is considered to be the finest and most exclusive shopping location on the islands) to the east, and of course, the world renowned Wailea Beach and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

Take a short stroll and visit the elegant 50,000 square foot spa at the Grand Wailea, recognized as one of the top 10 spas in North America. Also visit one of the many fine restaurants at the 'Shops' including Longhi's, Ruth's Chris Steak House or Tommy Bahama's Tropical Café.

Our three bedroom, two bathroom luxurious unit, with more than 2,200 square feet of well-planned living space that includes over 280 square feet of lanai, offers an array of unique appointments such as custom wood shutters, granite and hard wood finishes, eye-catching art, elegant bath and bed linens, and honed marble floors with well-chosen decorative carpets.

The Living Room has a Samsung HD 60" Flat Screen Television with a DVD/CD player and multiple movies to choose from. There's also a RedBox video outlet a short walk away at the Shop's of Wailea for more movies to choose from.

We have a beautiful cherry wood queen size Murphy bed in den. The room includes 6 louvered sliding doors for privacy or for an open study area.

A Cordon Bleu chef would be delighted with the accoutrements provided in the well-equipped kitchen…a Gaggenau range top, two Sub-Zero refrigerators complete with beverage and freezer drawers, Thermador stainless steel convection oven with microwave, and a Viking gas grill on the lanai just to name a few. A private chef and shopping service is also available by request.

Complete with security personnel, this gated vacation paradise also offers two outdoor whirlpool spas and a fitness center with locker rooms and showers. With 'aloha' spirit the friendly staff provides towels, beach umbrellas, and lounges at pool side or on the beach.

Assistance or any personal needs can be directed to your concierge in any of the following venues -sightseeing tours, including helicopter, jet, and private boat charter; golf tee-times; sailing, scuba diving, kayaking and snorkeling excursions; in-house massage; baby sitting services; dinner reservations; a family photographer to record your memories and so much more.

About Eric and Camille Peterson

I was born and raised on Oahu and several times a year we would take the 'long' 30 minute flight to Maui to visit my grandparents who lived in Kula. My husband grew up spending much of his vacation time snow skiing in the mountains, from Tahoe to Yosemite. We spent our honeymoon in our cottage in Makena and love spending time in the mountains and in Maui...but mostly Maui! I've convinced my husband that traveling up to the top of Haleakala crater is like going to the mountains:) We live in San Diego where we raised our two kids. Stephen (20) and Katelin (19) have spent summer vacations in Maui ever since they were born. We know you'll love 'The Maui Escape' at the Wailea Beach Villas as it truly is a piece of Heaven on Earth!!

Camille and Eric Peterson, San Diego, CA

Eric and Camille Peterson purchased this villa in 2007

Why Eric and Camille Peterson chose Wailea

We chose to purchase one of the Wailea Beach Villas because it is the most beautiful resort in Maui! We love sunny South Maui and Wailea Beach. We also love the fact you are within walking distance of many incredible restaurants and the Shops at Wailea, yet the Beach Villas provide much more privacy and living space than a resort hotel...not to mention a gormet kitchen for those times you want to barbeque on the lanai or simply have a family meal in the villa.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa overlooks the pool and beautiful tiki torch lit surroundings. We have a staircase that leads directly to the pool's a two minute walk to Wailea Beach and a two minute walk to the Shops of Wailea. There are five world class golf courses within a few miles of the villa and two tennis clubs. We are next door to the Grand Wailea which offers one of the finest spas and terme facilities in the world!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife Lori and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary during this stay. This was our second time staying with you in your beautiful place. If it is even possible, we had an even better time on this stay. After 35 years with me - my wife has earned it. :-)

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy such a wonderful time together. We hope to stay with you again in the future.

A blessing in disguise

  • 5 of 5

We had booked another place for our trip to Maui and due to unforeseen circumstances ended up needing to find another place a week before our trip. Eric and Camille were wonderful to work with and Eric said he thought the whole process would end up being a blessing in disguise - and it was! The location of this condo is ideal. This was our 5th trip to Maui and we had noticed the WBV from The Shops at Wailea and wondered what it was. Now we know and we will be returning for future trips. We loved being able to walk to The Shops, resorts, restaurants, and the beach. We were traveling with our 4 year old and 1 year old and the location of this unit to the family pool was perfect. The family pool area is so nice and our kids loved it. The condo was also safe to let our 1 year toddle around in without having to worry too much. The 2.5 bedrooms were great for us - our 4 year old slept in the murphy bed and we were able to close the doors to that room to let him sleep in. The second bedroom and bath has a pocket door so the entire suite can be closed off which was great for our family while getting ready. The bathroom set up is great for a family as well. There is plenty of room in the condo and it is even more beautiful in person! It had everything we needed stocked there. The place is well appointed and the furniture is comfortable. The beds are comfortable - even the murphy bed. The staff at the WBV are great and ready to help make your stay fabulous. As others have mentioned, the parking spot is tight if you have a minivan, as we did. But there are plenty of other near by parking options available so it's no big deal. The resort itself is lovely with beautiful landscaping and views. Thank you, Eric and Camille. We had a great stay and are already planning our next trip!

This was a great property and perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The apartment was well kept and convenient to everything. The owners and concierge were very responsive to any needs or issues that arose. We would definitely rent again.

The nicest place I have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

About me:

-Never used air bnb or VRBO before

-Usually prefer nice, elegant, high quality hotels

-Stayed with: my partner and baby in one bedroom, with another family (two adults one baby) in the next bedroom

Overall, this was the nicest place I have ever stayed

-It had everything I love about nice hotels: great concierge, included services such as valet parking (they brought all our luggage from the car to our room), optional super convenient services such as baby item rental (our crib just appeared in our room and disappeared from our room), luxury linens, comfortable mattresses, bathrobes, plenty of high quality towels, pillows, shampoo, etc.

-It also had many awesome features I would not have found in a hotel: personal check in phone call from the owner, very responsive owner thoroughly answering questions by email in advance, HUGE amount of living space (the pics don’t do it justice), thick walls (I assume) where even two babies were able to sleep separately and barely disturb each other, amazing kitchen with everything you could want including two fridges and dishwasher, laundry facilities in the unit, BBQ, appliances were all top of the line

Other pros:

-Incredibly beautiful complex and unit down to every little detail

-there were several items that previous tenants had left behind (floaties, snorkels) free to use

-great family pool, which was very close, with shallow end for kids, and hot tub, plenty of available chairs and umbrellas and towels (definitely no one “reserving”)

-despite being high season it did not feel at all crowded

-we didn’t try the adult pool, but liked that it was separated from the family pool

-reliable internet in most of the unit (not on the lanai)

-Cleaning service mid-stay did a great job, and arranged a convenient time and date with us

-Spotless when we arrived

-Beach was lovely, sandy, beautiful, great for swimming, with amazing service included (they set up your chairs, umbrella, towels). About five minute walk from our door.

-Close by (10 min drive) was turtle town, with another beach with great snorkelling and plenty of sea turtles (the adjacent beach was lovely but not great snorkelling)

-Bonus murphy bed room was great for napping

If I return to Maui, I will be disappointed if I have to stay anywhere else!

Beautiful Condo and Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui and I am so glad we picked this location! The condo is beautiful. The owners could not have been better. They were not at all obtrusive but were very responsive to any question.

The grounds of the Villa are beautiful, not at all crowded, and well maintained. The walk from the condo down to the beach was enjoyable and beautiful. The location was perfect for me. Three other resorts are adjacent to this location and they have very nice Spas and restaurants that you can walk to in minutes. The beach was nice and I loved the fact that an attendant was waiting to set up as many umbrellas and chairs as you want at any time of the day. We went to a Luau one evening that was great and was at the resort next to us so we walked there in just a few minutes! We enjoyed this location and the beautiful condo and hope to return to it in the future! Thank you Eric and Camille

Amazing property, fabulous owners

  • 5 of 5

Wailea Beach villas are a 5 star experience - the property itself is impeccably maintained, the staff is very accommodating, and the location is well-situated along the coast. Very conveniently located to the Shops at Wailea, which we did not fully appreciate until we arrived and had a convenience store, gourmet shop, lunch spot, gastro pub, and shopping just steps away. As many of the owners do not rent out their individual condos. even at Christmas peak it still feels very relaxed at the villas (in contrast to the hotels on either side, where visitors are swarming like ants for beach chairs).

This particular condo is in excellent shape, with beautiful linens and every conceivable item needed in the kitchen. While not high up (1st floor), so view of ocean is limited, the deck is still a very pleasant place for meals.

However, one of the most important standout features of this particular VRBO option is the owners, who were very accommodating and welcoming, and did their utmost to ensure we had a good vacation. A pleasure to work with.

Strong recommendation.
