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.

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.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, the experience was good. Although, when we arrived the front desk didn't have our names, however, after showing our contract confirmation, there was no problem no enter the house. The microwave broke one day, but maintenance was quick to come by and gave us a spare one to use. The proximity to the beach, pool,shopping mall, makes this place a great place to stay if visiting Maui. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

Just Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

It really could not have been any better. The condo (Penthouse 110) and overall resort (Wailea Beach Villas) exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at the Four Seasons several times and wanted to try the WBVs for the benefit of more space, a full kitchen, and a washer/dryer. We will not be returning to a hotel after experiencing The Maui Escape. The location provides access to all the amenities of the area, matches the quality and visual beauty of any other resort, with the benefit of a more peaceful experience. Given many owners don't rent out their units, the total occupancy at WBVs during our stay was around 60%. We had easy access to great spots on Wailea Beach (with umbrellas, chairs and towels provided by the beach concierge) and often had the pool to ourselves.

Camillie and Eric have furnished the condo with everything we needed and were available to answer questions as we were settling in.

We hope to come back to visit The Maui Escape again next year!
