These exclusive privileges are ONLY available to you if you rent from an owner that has been accepted by The Grand Wailea's rental program. You no longer have to choose between a luxury home or a resort, as this villa combines the best features of both!

When searching for a nice place to stay in Wailea on Maui's sunny south side, you'll have many great choices. There are very nice beach front resorts, such as the iconic Grand Wailea Resort, and some very nice privately owned residences. In most cases, you'll need to choose between the two options. Fortunately, you've just found the best of both! We've combined all of the services and amenities of the fabulous Grand Wailea Resort with a professionally designed and spacious three bedroom OCEAN VIEW home.

Akela at Ho'olei is perfectly situated in the middle of Ho'olei, a gated, private community of three bedroom, two level town homes in Wailea, Maui. The location affords fabulous ocean views across Wailea beach towards Lanai and West Maui. Easily walk to the Ho'olei pool and recreation area or across the street to the Grand Wailea Resort. Even better, a quick phone call to our Grand Wailea staff members will quickly summon a vehicle to pick you up at your front door and drive you to either the lower or upper entrance of the Grand Wailea Resort, which you may enjoy the pools, water slides, spa, restaurants. When you are ready, our staff will take you back to Akela. The transportation service is included in your nightly rate!

Akela has been professionally designed with furnishings sourced from the finest makers around the world and wall colors that have been custom blended to this design pallet to enrich the senses, Akela is by far one of the best residences in Ho’olei. Open the large Fleetwood sliding glass doors and turn on the fans as you enjoy the over- sized, well equipped lanai while watching the sunset over the ocean. The large granite table is perfect for enjoying an outdoor barbeque meal, prepared by you on your Wolf grill, complete with rotisserie and a small Sub-Zero refrigerator.

There’s a one-car garage with an additional parking space just steps from the garage. From the garage entrance you may go directly to the elevator to load your groceries and luggage. This ultimate convenience is perfect for those who may have trouble with stairs. The laundry room includes a full sized Whirlpool washer and dryer, so you may pack light and avoid those pesky airline baggage charges! Don’t worry about renting beach gear, as we’ve got you covered with umbrellas, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels, bags and coolers.

Each of the three bedrooms includes a flat panel television and en-suite bath. Thick carpeting, dual glazed Fleetwood sliding glass doors and extra insulation ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. The master bedroom is actually larger than most hotel suites and included a comfortable seating area, deluxe king sized bed with custom bedding, a serene lanai with lounge chairs to enjoy the ocean views. The master bath suite include dual vanities, a deep soaking tub and separate shower area and large walk-in closet.

The professionally equipped kitchen will take your breath away. We’ve thought of everything, from the waffle iron to the wok, you will have what you need to create a fabulous meal. Top of the line appliances including two Sub-Zero refrigerators and a gas range surrounded by beautiful granite counter tops and Snaidero cabinetry will inspire you to create the perfect meal. Don’t feel like cooking and want to stay home? No problem – our concierge staff will arrange a personal chef to do the shopping and prepare your gourmet meal in the privacy of your Maui villa. If you'd like, we’ll also do the grocery shopping for you prior to your arrival.

Why You Should Consider Our Home:

Once you’ve decided that one of the homes at Ho’olei would be the perfect venue for your vacation, you need to decide which of the Ho’olei residences are for you. First and foremost, please be advised (that unlike at a resort), all Ho’olei residences are NOT the same. These are not hotel rooms created equally. Each of these properties are individually owned and the owners have the final choice on how the interiors are designed and furnished. Some of the homes have what we call “investor standard” furnishings. In an effort to make it more convenient for cost-conscious investors on the mainland, the investor selected and installed furniture that was cost effective for them. Ours was done with the goal being to create all of the feelings of a luxury residence. You will feel, smell and appreciate the difference!

Many homes listed on VRBO do NOT qualify for the amazing amenities of the Grand Wailea Resort - ours does! We are able to offer FULL access and use of the Resort along with complimentary on-demand transportation to and from your home, the resort and beach. You and your family will be treated as if you were staying at the Grand Wailea Resort!

We offer a discount from the Grand Wailea's regular rates at Ho'olei for those that find us on VRBO/HomeAway. See our rates page to see the difference between the regular rate and our discounted rate. Bookings are handled as owner referrals - your deposit is held by the Grand Wailea Resort. You will receive a confirmation document indicating our home as the one you'll be checked into. As an added bonus, you'll also receive credit to your Hilton Honors frequent guest account!

So, call or e-mail today to speak with the owner directly, and to reserve your spot in paradise. You deserve it!

The Best

  • 5 of 5

We always enjoy staying at Ho'olei. The condos are impeccable. The office staff is so helpful and amazing. The access to the Grand Wailea and all it has to offer is perfect when you have children with you. And you get plenty of exercise with all the hills around the property and getting to the beach and back.

One of our favorite Ho'olei villas!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's 6th visit to the villas at Ho'olei and it might have been our best yet. The villas are all great, but Akela had some of the most comfortable furnishings of any of the villas in which we've stayed. Everything was spotless and in great working order. Plenty of room for our family to spend time together but also to have some privacy, peace and quiet. The concierge services at Ho'olei are fantastic. They ensure all of your reservations, either through Grand Wailea or elsewhere in Maui, are taken care of and they can provide recommendations for activities, restaurants and sightseeing. Access to the full range of amenities at Grand Wailea makes this the perfect beach vacation.

Ho olei ...Dream Come True

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. We had a wonderful view of the ocean from the living area and lanai.

The whole house was beautifully decorated. Everything a person would need to cook was supplied in the kitchen. The pool was warm and very nice for family time. Being able to use the facilities at the Grand Wailea was perfect. That facility was great for action in the pools.

We also used their photographer, who was fantastic. I would stay again and again and again.!

The perfect place for our group of 3 couples to spend our week in Maui.

  • 5 of 5

Akela is beautifully appointed and maintained, and we found the team at Ho'olei extremely helpful, welcoming and efficient. The location of the property is fantastic, and we loved the convenience of the car spaces and easy access to the beach and Grand Wailea amenities just across the road. We loved our stay there and look forward to returning.
