The Palms At Wailea, the most desired location in Wailea, is a refreshing oasis in beautiful Wailea Resort.

New granite, new stainless steel appliances and fixtures. Large pantry. We have supplied you with everything you will need to enjoy your wonderful Aloha vacation. Beach towels and beach chairs provided. Everything you will need.

From one of our Guest. This condo is nothing short of fabulous. The work and care that the owners have invested into the property is obvious and their attention to detail makes it as stunning on the inside as the ocean views on the outside. We felt like we were home, with all the amenities one could possibly need. From beach toys to towels to every kitchen item one could imagine, it was all there! What a gem! Lastly, I just want to mention that we had a few questions prior to arrival and during our stay and the owners could not have been more pleasant and helpful. How fortunate they are to have this piece of paradise and how lucky we are that they are willing to share it with us! A stay here is highly recommended!

The spacious master bedroom has king size bed and entertainment center - master bath features a huge designer shower with 5 shower heads and mother of pearl floor and accents. The large private lanai includes table with 6 chairs for outside dining, sunning and a gas grill for cooking. The unit is across from the free-form pool and relaxing jacuzzi featuring additional covered space for entertaining. Located near Wailea's gorgeous golf courses, the Shops at Wailea and walking distance to all major Wailea hotels.

This is an upscale neighborhood and the unit is beautifully merchandised and tastefully appointed to please the most discerning vacationers. Concierge services. Every convenience is available.

Ours is one of the few condos at The Palms at Wailea that is fully air conditioned...and on our lanai is a Weber gas BBQ, both at no extra charge to you. (In contrast, The Palms On-Site Management charges $20/day for A/C, and $10/day for a portable BBQ). We invite you to share our family's comfortable 'Tropical Getaway' for your stay and we wish you Aloha and Hana Hou...

Repeat guests have enthusiastically compared their stay at our Palms at Wailea Condo with a stay at a high-rise luxury hotel: our roomy floor plan and spacious lanai, convenient dedicated parking place just steps from our private entry, attractive and comfortable tropical decor and art work,

The Palms at Wailea grounds with sweeping ocean views, inviting pool and Jacuzzi: 'Comparable luxury....incomparable privacy for a fraction of the cost!' Stroll down the hill to famous 'Wailea Beach Walk' which ambles by The Grand Wailea, The Four Seasons, and The Fairmont Kea Lani, where you may jog or walk several miles in each direction in the sand or on a paved walkway, or both!

Keywords: Largest 2 bedroom Condominium with vaulted ceilings - total remodel throughout, ocean views in the world famous Palms at Wailea. This is our home away from home and can be ours as well.

About Bonnie Alfriend, Owner

Terry and Bonnie Alfriend live in Pebble Beach, CA. We have 2 grown children, Kyle and Kim and 4 grandchildren. The entire family dives and Maui is wonderful for family scuba trips.

Terry is a professor and research scientist. Bonnie enjoys managing their vacation rental properties in Maui and Florida.

Bonnie Alfriend, Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why Bonnie Alfriend, Owner chose Wailea

We are a family of divers and nothing is better than the waters of beautiful Maui. Terry is a research Professor and spends time with students at the Tech Park in Maui. This is our second home, thus the incredible design, amenities and furnishings. Certainly far from your typical vacation rental.

What makes this condo unique

The Palms of Wailea is the most popular resort in Wailea, home to Maui's most beautiful beaches championship golf courses and tennis courts. We have taken a dated condo and completely re-built and re-modeled the interior to breathtaking design and decor. We added central air conditioning - very hard to find in Maui and all the upgrades and appointments plus supplies necessary for your most enjoyable Aloha vacation. Renting direct from an owner affords you the knowledge of knowing the exact condo and location you will have. Outrigger or another management company you are taking a big change. We hear so many complaints from people that renting from these situations - holidays in Maui are too precious to take that chance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bonnie,

Thanx again for allowing us to use your fabulous condo at the Plams. It was a perfect set-up for us; especially with our son and his wife, and our beautiful grand-daughter, who spent ten days with us.

The weather was terrific, and we had a great time. Hopefully we can do it again some time. We just got home late last nite, so vacation plans have yet to be formed for next year.

Nicely appointed condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared this condo with my cousin from Japan, her husband, and their daughter. We loved the ocean view, as well as the convenience of a nearby pool. The whole place was well-stocked, from kitchen supplies to beach chairs, towels, and even boards. There was even a Styrofoam cooler for our picnic lunch on our trip to Hana. Appliances were new and easy to use. Free WiFi and phone were so helpful. We found a good walk to the beach, but my husband loves McKenna Beach, which is not too far. The Shops at Wailea had a free hula show on Thursdays. It's minutes to Kihei (for a cool beach vibe and good sunset) and only 20-30 minutes to Lahaina and Kaanapali. Tons of good restaurants nearby. Bonnie, the owner, checked in with us often, but she left us such great instructions she didn't really need to. We'd come back in a heartbeat.

Can't Wait to Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

Love the Palms and love this condo! Went with a group of 4 friends, 2 who had previously been to Maui and 2 who had not. We had things we wanted to do as a group and separately. This suited us perfectly as we were close to the beach, golf courses, a boat landing for scuba/snorkeling trips, and the Shops at Wailea.

The condo was exquisite, especially the master bedroom and bath. The unit is very open and spacious so we could all comfortably hang out together to eat, drink or just socialize. On a couple of nights we chose to take advantage of the grill and enjoyed some local seafood and dishes on the lanai. The view from the lanai and from inside the condo is gorgeous.

We all loved having the pool so close, just on the back side of the unit. It was very easy to come and go between the condo and the pool. You can watch the sun do down while relaxing in the hot tub! A couple of us also discovered it was a nice walk over to Ulua Beach and along the ocean by the Grand Wailea.

The owners, Bonnie and Terry, were a pleasure to deal with , and couldn't have been nicer. They've furnished and stocked the condo with plenty of amenities that made our stay very easy and comfortable. Not only do we recommend this unit, a couple of us are planning a return trip and will definitely rent from Bonnie and Terry again.

Affordable and beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

The booking and renting experience was easy - well-organized and no issues whatsoever.

The pictures of the unit and location are accurate. The exception is that the map link on VRBO to show location of complex is not accurate.

Pluses: Affordable - across the street beach side you can expect to double the price. Nice location - easy to hop over to Ulua Beach and do the ocean front 1 mile walk. Easy to jump on the Pilani Highway. Everything is only minutes away by car. View - very nice ocean view from the living room. Well-appointed kitchen.

Minuses: A few ants - but hey it's the tropics. Put your stuff in the refrigerator and you're fine. 2nd bedroom gets pretty hot in the morning as the sun comes up - the AC not as strong in there. This is partially an Outrigger owned complex and private owned. The desk caters only to Outrigger people - so if you need something printed you need to go over to the Marriott business center for example. No reclining lounge chairs on the lanai.

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

We booked our very first Maui trip in September after the kids are back in school hoping to avoid the crowds. We couldn't have chosen a better place than this condo in Wailea Maui! During our 8 night stay we had the pool most mornings to ourselves. Our favorite beach was within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully landscaped grounds. So many beautiful flowers and lush tropical plants. The inside of the condo exceeded our expectations. Beautiful view from the Lanai and living room and all the rooms were large. We will return! Thank you Bonnie and Alfredo for sharing your condo!
