Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-4)

Our Wailea, Maui condo #1304 has lovely ocean views from the lanai that will captivate you as you have your morning coffee or tea; or catch the sunset in the evening after a day of sightseeing, golf or a relaxing day at the beach or pool. The condo is very spacious (1022 square feet inside, plus 2 covered fully tiled lanais with 374 square feet outside) and faces an expansive lush garden area lined with lovely palm trees stretching out to the ocean. This is considered one of the most desirable one bedroom villas at the Palms because of it's beautiful ocean views, 2 lanais, and close proximity to the pool and clubhouse.

The villa was remodeled in August/September of 2008, and offers our guests a truly tropical haven. Furnishings are 'Tommy Bahama' style. A new king size Saatva luxury mattress was added in 2017. New larger capacity washer/dryer was added in late 2014, as well as a new pass through slide window in kitchen that opens to the dining lanai, and larger recessed lighting in kitchen. In June 2015 all new Stainless Steel appliances were installed in the kitchen. There is 20 inch porcelain tile throughout the villa, with ceiling fans in master bedroom and living room and dining area. There are also two separate air conditioners for those that want to stay even cooler in the master bedroom and living room. There is a 42' plasma television in living area, and a 36' television in the bedroom. DVD/VCR player and CD player and ipod dock with stereo in living area. Portable telephone with free calls to U.S. and Canada included. Wi Fi is included in the villa, as well as at the pool area. Also added is our special guest cabinet stocked with spices, foil wrap, plastic wrap, napkins, tea, coffee filters, condiments (small packets) and a cooler for the beach. There are also boogie boards and beach chairs for use at the beach. Beach towels are provided at the front desk, and can be used at the pool or beach. We have two outdoor lanai's. A lounging lanai with two new lounge chairs and a table, and a dining lanai with a table for four that has counter height chairs to take in the breathtaking views of the ocean. There is also a gas BBQ grill on the lanai if you want to cook your meals at home.

The whale shaped pool with jacuzzi is surrounded by palms, and has stunning views of the ocean. Just a two minutes drive away are the Shops at Wailea, featuring Gucci, Coach, Longhi's Restaurant, Tommy Bahama's store and restaurant, and Ruth's Chris Steak House.

Also, only two minutes away by car (5-6 min. walk), is Keawakapu Beach with one-half mile of soft white sand, two entrances and three free parking lots. This is a great swimming and snorkeling family beach complete with bars and restaurants at the end of the beach. We love the snorkeling at Ulua/Mokapu Beach - very close to our villa in Wailea. The entrance is right next to the parking lot at the new Andaz Hotel. (It is where the old Renaissance Hotel used to be.) If you go to the Andaz, try their grilled lobster sandwich on sourdough bread - it is amazing. It's served at the Bumbye Beach bar/restaurant outside by the pool. In the evening by the upper pool they have live music, and it is a very romantic setting with the infinity pools stretching out to the ocean from the bar patio.

Wailea is a planned community, and is Maui's treasure on the south end of the island. It has the best climate in Maui with annual rainfall of 10 inches, compared to Kaanapali's 29 inches. The average high temperatures range from 80 degrees to 89 degrees.

Golfing in the Wailea area is spectacular. Wailea boasts 3 golf courses, one of which has hosted the Wendy's Senior Skins game. Or, try the Maui Nui Golf Course in Kihei - very reasonable rates! Nearby, Makena is the home of Big Beach. It is famous for its body surfing and boogie boarding. Pack a picnic lunch, a beach umbrella and make an afternoon of it at Big Beach!

Check with the activity desk in the lobby, and book any of the many activities offered on the island. The activity desk offers golf discounts in Wailea. We provide you with a list of very good restaurants as options to go to when you book - as well as some of our guest's favorites.

There is lots to do in Wailea, so you don't have too go far for great food and world renown spas. Treat yourself to an afternoon at the spa at the Grand Wailea, dinner at Nick's Fishmarket restaurant at the Fairmont Hotel, Wolfgang Puck Spago's restaurant at the Four Seasons or for fun and live music - go to the Monkeypod - it's a Merriman's restaurant. These are a few of our favorite places.

About Lynn Prakash

We had traveled to Hawaii nearly every year for the past 25 years and found that Wailea was our haven, so in 2007 we bought our little piece of paradise to visit each year, and we fall more in love with the islands each time we do. We have lived in Northern California for the past 30 years, but Wailea is our home away from home and we extend our warm aloha welcome to you. May you enjoy the Palms and Wailea as much as we do. Lynn & Norval

Lynn Prakash purchased this condo in 2007

Why Lynn Prakash chose Wailea

Year after year we have our guests come back to our unit because of our hospitality and desire to offer our guests the ultimate Hawaiian experience.

What makes this condo unique

Mornings and evenings on the lanai are the perfect way to start and end the day. We love sitting on the lanai in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee and gazing at the calm ocean, listening to the birds, and enjoying the aroma of the flowers in paradise. In the evening, we love to sit out with a drink and watch the sunset. It is spectacular. Later, we enjoy an evening of barbecuing on the lanai, and having a peaceful dinner with island music in the background - then a dip in the pool or spa.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at this condo for several years now. The location, the view, the amenities are all great. The condo meets our needs perfectly....directly over the pool and near the office. We enjoyed many meals on the lanai with the ocean view. The Palms is a fantastic location with many beaches nearby. The owners go out of their way to make sure everything you need is there. We are already looking forward to next year.

Perfect condo for a perfect vacation. Jul 2018.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th visit to Maui and the last 5 times we stayed in this condo. Every year we try to book this particular unit as it has one of the best locations in the entire complex. The condo was beautifully renovated since our last visit. The villa is located next to the pool and the view from the lanai was spectacular to enjoy a cup of coffee with breakfast or a glass of wine with a steak prepared on the BBQ grill located right on the lanai. The condo has a full kitchen (with dishes, cookware, glassware, dishwasher, refrigerator and small appliances). Both rooms have A/C units. The bedroom had a very comfortable king size bed and a flat screen TV. The living room had a big flat screen TV (with Chromecast), audio system, big sofa and a comfortable chair. The condo was very clean, the Outrigger staff was very friendly, the check-in/check-out procedures were fast and easy. We definitely will come back.

Wonderful Condo

The condo was absolutely wonderful. We especially enjoyed being so close to the pool. The overall condo location made it easy to get to the other Wailea attractions.

Amazing stay at most magical location

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't believe how huge this place was, and it felt like home right away. Nice 2 patios with great views, two full bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, most comfortable bed were just a few of my favorite things. The neighborhood is very residential with some upscale resorts peppered along the coast to come and enjoy for dining experiences and happy hour options. The surrounding area is well manicured, beautiful golf course and Big beach was the best I've seen on the island is just a few minutes away. Other activities are relatively close by as well. We can't wait to go back and just wish we stayed longer.

Fabulous vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome place! Thank you, Lynn & Norval for making this such a pleasurable experience from the beginning. The unit is terrific-- great location, beautifully decorated, and all the amenities you could need. Communication was prompt and courteous, arrival easy (even at 11 pm), and the condo was even better than described. It was plenty large for our family of 3 and had all the conveniences of home. We had a beautiful view of the sunset every night and easy access to the pool. Our friends who also stayed in the complex were envious of our ocean view and balconies! I was surprised by and appreciated the availability of the front desk and concierge to answer any immediate questions. We are already planning our return next year and we will definitely be staying here again! Mahalo!
