About Mike Hawksworth

Mike Hawksworth resides and works in Phoenix, Arizona. He and wife Hope have enjoyed Hawaii vacations since their first trip in 1985. After spending many years renting a summer place in Maui, they were fortunate enough in 2007 to find our incredible Wailea home which had just been listed the week we arrived on the island. We knew it was special when we walked in the first time and had it under contract before they returned home. Hope passed away in the late summer of 2011 but the family continues to gather in Maui where many memories of Hope are relished.

Mike Hawksworth purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mike Hawksworth chose Wailea

Over the years we have had the privilege of staying at various locations on many of the Hawaiian Islands. We have found the South Maui area provides access to shopping, restaurants and beaches that never appear crowded. With those amenities close, the Wailea Resort Area brings the tropical resort feel to every property. The Wailea Association insures that the properties are upkept and all landscaping and public areas contribute to the tropical resort environment.

What makes this condo unique

Our home is steps away from Keawakapu Beach, which is fronted by private homes versus large hotel or condominium complexes, eliminating large beach crowds. We call the home our Polynesian Villa, since it is the only building on the Palms property in the Polynesian architecture. The home is a tri-level, with access through a private entrance midway between the lower bedroom suites and the upper living areas. The large lanais both upstairs and downstairs provide ocean views over Keawakapu beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly enjoyed our 10 night stay inthis Villa! We've stay at the Palms properties before but wanted a different experience this time. The owners have done a fabulous job of making this condo family friendly yet having the latest amenities. We used the towels, chairs, toys (for our 2 year old Granddaughter) and the bar-b-que. The view from the lanai's was fabulous and calming in the evening. it's close to the beach, shopping in Wailea or Kehei. This is a perfect place for families to stay with plenty of room. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Maui.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I travelled with my wife and three kids ( 18, 16, 14) in August 2018.

This condo was well located on the island. About 25 minutes from the airport and all areas of Maui were accessible.

We were a 10 m walk to the beach which didn't matter as we would often grab gear and head to other beaches on the island. The condo had a good stock of boogie boards/snorkels etc.. As I mentioned we sampled many beaches but my favorite was the beach closest to our condo.

The condo has a great lanai, a fully functional and beautiful kitchen and we spent lots of time in the living room area as a family.

The pool at the Palms was clean and cared for and we enjoyed a quick dip almost every day.

The sunsets from the beach or the pool are beautiful as you face west.

The bedrooms are as advertised and well maintained.

A small warning there is some road noise at times during the day but it wasn't bothersome to us

I'd certainly recommend this condo to any of my friends.

Thank you for the wonderful visit!

Wailea Hale Trip 2018

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the Palms at Wailea unit for our stay on Maui. We were 6 adults and there was plenty of room for all of us. The condo is stocked with all the beach stuff you'll need. Lots of beach chairs, towels, floaty noodles, umbrellas & coolers. The location was perfect with a 2 minute drive to the beach or a 5 minute walk. Also really close to the Shops at Wailea.

Excellent accomodation for Maui visit!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui, so we decided to stay at a couple of different rental properties. The first one was average, and not exactly as advertised, but Mike's place was perfect and exactly as described. The home was comfortable, with good AC when you wanted it, and lot's of beach gear readily available. There is good beach access for a short walk, but actually we found there were also many public beaches only a few minutes away by car. The public beaches there are every bit as nice as the resort beaches, and actually give you a better flavor of local Hawaiian culture. We saw a family of sea turtles at one of the public beaches, and the beaches were never very crowded. The home is in excellent condition and it all works great. You have nice views (partial ocean) from the large lanai. This unit comfortably sleeps 6 people. The location is also great proximity to good shopping and restaurants. Overall, could not have been more pleased with the experience.

Beautiful spacious home with lovely outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in Maui with my parents . The house was spacious, comfortable and had all the amenities we wanted. Was close to shopping , restaurants and the beach. My parents particularly enjoyed relaxing on the lanai, enjoying the warm breeze and the beautiful scenery. Would love to go back sometime soon.

The pool is beautiful

Will definitely stay here again.
