Nestled in the foothills of the West Maui Mountains, Wai Ola Vacation Paradise is the perfect location for family reunions, retreats and group gatherings. Located 2 1/2 blocks from the ocean on a sloping hillside, Wai Ola is an elegant 5000 square foot home with stunning ocean views from a 55' lanai (deck). The pool, spa and lush landscaping give the feel of a very private, "mini-resort".

Each of the bedrooms have a separate outdoor entrance and offer top of the line furnishings (King beds in all) and Hawaiian artwork to create the most comfortable & relaxing home away from home. All of the bedrooms are air-conditioned with ceiling fans. Each has a refrigerator, TV with DVD and a coffee bar with fresh Hawaiian Beans. The entire property has FREE wireless broadband internet access.

Choose your sport, whether it is golfing, snorkeling, sailing, hiking, fishing, surfing, or swimming. After a hard day of vacationing, retreat to the privacy of your room or meet the rest of your group on the lanai for a gorgeous West Maui Sunset!

We're here to assist you in any way we can... from local dining hotspots to jumping a canyon, and everything in between! See rates below.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a wonderful stay. As usual the weather was great, but it was still nice to have a comfortable "Home Base" to return to. Our whole extended family will have many treasured moments from this vacation.

Thanks also for all the help in guiding us where & what to do. We alway found enough to do to tire us out each night.

The house was very comfortable and the view was great!

Thanks again - Go Buckeyes!!

Family of 14, ten days of bliss. Our three grown children and our six grand children had a fantastic time at this rental. It was perfect. We rented the entire place and it fit like a glove ("if it fits you must assist"). Our grand kids spent more time in the pool than out of it. Its spacious, in a very quiet neighborhood and close to down town Lahaina. My wife and I also celebrated are anniversary, we had a wonderful dinner at nearby Merriman's restaurant. Everybody was delighted. Life long memories were made by all. The owner was great and so was the property manager. Thank you Jim and Karen!

Our group LOVED WAIOLA!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home April 10, 2010 after spending 10 glorious days at WAIOLA. We rented the entire property as there was 6 adults, and 7 kids, ages 18mos-16 and we had such an AWESOME time. Your private paradise awaits you and the hosts, Kim and Jim, are there to offer their expertise on just about everything MAUI has to offer. The property was beautiful, clean, close to beaches, shopping, FRONT STREET, and had a beautiful ocean view from the LANAI!!!! We would recommend this private resort to anyone travelling to MAUI !!!!!!!!

Wedding Dreams

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just stayed at this location and we had a wonderful time. It was spacious and had places we could all be together but also privacy in our own rooms. The swimming pool and hot tub was a very nice plus. Kim and Jim were very helpful during out stay. The house was very well located on the island. I definately would stay there again.

Great home for family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 adults and 7 children (most of them toddlers) rented this property for our Thanksgiving week vacation- and it was absolutely perfect! There was a great separation of space to accommodate nap schedules, and enough privacy to allow folks to get away from the central action when necessary. Owners Jim and Kim were such friendly hosts- and though they were on-site in their attached apartment, we saw them only briefly during our stay. They were very helpful with answering questions about local activities, and provided us with guide book information and useful tips for planning outings. The pool and hot tub got a lot of use in between trips to the beaches to snorkel and swim.

Wai Ola is located in a neighborhood of Lahaina- walking distance to a beach, and a nice walk to a shopping center and restaurants. The local bus-line also has a stop within a block of this home- and costs about $1 per ride. The bus can take you to locations up and down the coast and runs frequently. There is also plenty of parking for rental cars. The neighborhood is quiet and secure- we felt very safe.

This property served very nicely as a home-base for our family vacation- and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for clean, comfortable accommodations for a family vacation. If you poke around online, you will find that for the price, this is an amazing option for your next trip to Maui. I recommend it highly, and I am so relieved that we decided to rent this property instead of a few condos or a hotel to house everyone. We saved a lot of $ renting the entire property, and had a great place to stay where everyone could be together. It was absolutely perfect.

We just stayed at Wai Ola...

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Wai Ola in Feb. We came from cold, icy Ohio. It was wonderful. We had our entire family with us - 3 grandsons -ages 8, 8, & 5 and 10 adults. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. Kim & Jim made us feel very welcome and at ease. There were fresh flowers in each of the units, fresh fruit in the kitchen and fresh coffee beans for all the coffee makers. They provided plenty of beach towels, beach mats, chairs, boogie boards, coolers, etc for us to take to the beach. The pictures don't do Wai Ola justice. It's much better. You can't sit out on your own private lanai eating breakfast and watching whales in Ohio. For us it was the perfect place. The 5 year old expressed it best when we got back to Columbus and he had tears streaming down his face and said, "I want to go back there!"

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed at Wai Ola in Dec, and the experience could not have been better. This was actually my husband’s and my third time at Wai Ola but the first time to rent the entire property. The attention to detail provided to us by Jim and Kim as single-room renters in the past was just as exceptional, if not more so, as whole-house guests. The main house and rooms were spotlessly clean and ready upon our arrival to start our vacation. As we have experienced in the past, Jim and Kim were waiting to greet us and welcomed us as if we were members of their own family. The location is ideal and so close to every dining, shopping or beach adventure imaginable but admittedly, it’s hard to tear yourself away from the Wai Ola property since everything you could ever need is right there. The kitchen is fully appointed, and we really took advantage of the barbecue grills pool-side. Nothing quite beats enjoying a cocktail, eating fresh grilled seafood and watching the sunset from the spacious lanai – unless maybe it’s taking a dip in your own private pool, relaxing in the hot tub or even watching the big game on the giant TV in the main living room. As always, Jim and Kim are available to offer a local’s perspective on where to go and what to experience on Maui – something you don’t get from the tourist magazines. As if escaping the frigid mid-west winter wasn’t reason enough for a vacation, Jim and Kim made it especially hard to leave their beautiful home. This rental property has something for everyone and is sure to please even the most discerning traveler. Once again, Wai Ola gets our highest praise.
