About the property

Spacious and beautifully designed 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath luxury villa in Wailea


It’s not easy to find a vacation home that offers all of the benefits that Kanani at Ho’olei provides her guests. In Hawaiian, the meaning of Kanani is sea and sky. As you walk up the steps to her front door and walk into the living area, you are greeted by the majestic Pacific ocean along with the ever changing blue sky over the West Maui and Lanai landscapes. The view is what draws Kanani’s guests…once they arrive, her impeccable design and features are what keep them coming back.

Kanani is located on the third row of town homes, up the hill at Ho’olei, one of the most unique and perfectly designed gated residential communities on Maui. Ho’olei is located directly across the street from the iconic Grand Wailea Resort, on Wailea beach, one of the top-rated beaches in the world. This wonderful combination of location, features and space provide our guests with a vacation experience that is simply unparalleled.

Ho’olei is a community of two level town homes, each with a garage and three bedrooms. Spacious, well built, and full of modern luxury features, this development is very un-like many of the classic condominium develops in the area. One of the the most important features of Ho’olei is it’s relationship to the Grand Wailea Resort, not only from a proximity standpoint, but from a service standpoint. A limited number of Ho’olei homeowners have been selected to provide their guests access and use of the Grand Wailea’s facilities. We are proud to be included in the Grand Wailea’s rental program, giving you the service, access and amenities of this fabulous resort.

When you stay at Kanani at Ho’olei, you are also a Grand Wailea Resort guest, meaning you and your family may utilize the Grand Wailea’s eight pools, water water slides, beach chairs, services and amenities. You even have charging privileges! Just pick up the phone and within minutes, Grand Wailea staff members whisk you over to the resort, which is just across the street. When it’s time to come home to Kanani, resort staff will bring you to the front door of your home away from home. It doesn’t get easier….or better than that! On a five night or longer stay, Grand Wailea staff will do a complete housekeeping visit, and we never charge an out-cleaning fee. All of this resort service, facility access, transportation and assistance is included in your nightly rate.

When you arrive at Ho’olei, Grand Wailea staff members will greet you and provide a tour of the many features of the home. You’ll learn how to operate the entertainment systems, connect to the high-speed wireless Internet, and adjust the climate control systems. Our concierge will be happy to arrange your dinner reservations and daily activities. Your kids may sign up for Camp Grande, the resort’s child and teen day camp. Spa services at Spa Grande, the Grand Wailea’s award winning spa may also be arranged. Our staff will provide you with beach and pool towels each day at the resort and at the Ho’olei pool.

Once you’ve settled into your new Wailea home, you’ll start to notice the details. We believe that “everything speaks” and have professionally furnished the home with top rated furniture, custom bedding, luxurious mattresses, and original works of art. Lighting on dimmers, flat panel televisions, and an incredibly fast wireless Internet system are there for you as well. Enjoy the fabulous ocean view from the living, dining or kitchen areas or open the Fleetwood sliding glass doors and enjoy indoor/outdoor living on the large lanai.

The chef’s kitchen includes two Sub-Zero refrigerators, four freezer drawers, granite counter tops, a Dacor gas range, microwave, and convection oven. We’ve thought of everything….from a wok to a waffle iron. There are more than enough settings for eight guests. For a celebration dinner, consider having our concierge arrange a private chef and watch a professional prepare your meal in the comfort of your own home. On the upper lanai, a six burner Wolf gas grill with an additional refrigerator is there for your BBQ meal while enjoying the ocean view.

The comfortable, contemporary design of Kanani lends itself to peaceful contemplation as you watch the amazing sunsets or a lively dinner with friends and family. We wanted the home to be visually impressive while remaining completely comfortable. It’s not easy to find a vacation rental home that is this thoughtfully done. When you include the Grand Wailea Resort’s service and facilities, you’ve just found the best of both!

About Ken Hawkins

We own an interior design firm in Southern California and see this home as an extension of our business. We believe that 'everything speaks' and are constantly working to improve the home, so that our valued guests will want to return year after year.

We are original Ho'olei owners and fell in love with this property well before the first building was completed. Being able to offer our guests access and use of a beautiful beach front resort while staying in our home is what 'sealed the deal' for us. Sharing this the experience of beautiful design and impeccable service from our resort partner makes us very happy. Aloha!

Blessed by the beauty

  • 5 of 5

Our family, along with another one with whom we travel each year, were greeted upon arrival with smiles, fresh leis and friendly alohas! The staff was very accommodating and showed us around the Ho'olei property and then to the villa itself. The villa has amazing views of the ocean and Grand Wailea property, is conveniently located near the pool and workout facility, and was large enough to accommodate our party of 9! We are already looking forward to booking again next year! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality! Mahalo!

Fantastic rental for family!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was fantastic. Felt quite new and the best part was the very short walk to the pool/hot tub and work out facility on premises. Across the street was the Grand Wailea with full amenities. Our family loved the amount of space in the condo, everything available in kitchen we needed and housekeeping mid-week. The views were fantastic and the close proximity to everywhere we wanted to go in Wailea and Makena was perfect! Would definitely rent it again.

Spectacular town home

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a week in Kanani and it was absolutely amazing. The pictures were an accurate representation and I was impressed with the quality of the furnishings, appliances, and decorations. The kitchen is fully stocked. We had purchased coffee beans and forgot to grind the coffee. The conceirge was able to find a coffee grinder and had that delivered to our unit The lanai is one of the best features of the unit. We spent every morning on the lanai having breakfast and cocktails in the evening. The concierge escorted us to the unit and as you walk up the stairs you see the amazing view of the ocean through the lanai. it was absolutely breathtaking. They unloaded the car, unpacked our groceries, and gave us a tour of the home. I admit I was not sure when I heard about the shuttle service to the Grand Wailea. I thought it would be your typical shuttle that you had to wait for a set time that runs on a set route. The shuttle was like a personal car service. A driver picked us up within 5 minutes of calling for it. They also had a virtual concierge that you could text. The unit and service were exceptional.

Ken was very helpful when I was researching a home to rent. He responded quickly and helped me understand the differences in the units that he had available and recommended Kanani to fit my needs. We had 6 adults and I wanted a larger common area where we could all hang out and spend time together.

Overall Ho'olei provided the best of both worlds - the privacy of a home with access to resort amenities. The Grand Wailea is a large resort and it was nice to be able to have access to the pools, spa, beach chairs, and the ability to charge to the room. When we would head back to Ho'olei after a day at the beach it was nice to return to a more private home setting. There is also a lovely pool and workout facility at Ho'olei which is not crowded like the pools at the Grand Wailea. I really do not have anything negative to say about my experience. I would absolutely return to Ho'olei and rent from Ken again. Thank you for making our vacation such a wonderful experience.

Love Kanani @ Ho'olei

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most delightful time staying at the Kanani Villa. This villa is in a perfect location for a quick walk to both the pools at Ho’olei and the Grand Wailea. The villa has a gorgeous view of the ocean, is exceptionally equipped and decorated, and provided us with all the superior amenities for a perfect stay. There are so many reasons to love this villa from grilling on the balcony while watching the sunset, to the easy access to the Grand Wailea Resort. We choose one of Ken Hawkins units because they all have Grand Wailea pool privileges and easy access to Wailea Beach, both of which were important to our family. The Ho’olei staff were delightful, helpful, and prompt with any request. They exude the Aloha spirit. A bonus was that as this villa has Grand Wailea privileges, you also get Hilton points for Hilton members. From my initial reservation request to check-out, our vacation stay at this property was exceptional and we can’t wait to go back. Thanks to Ken, Chuck and all the staff that made our stay easy and the most wonderful family vacation ever.
