Luxurious stay in Wailea
Reviewed on Thursday, September 29, 2016
I have stayed in total 7 hotels and condos in Maui in last three years and this was the best. Everything was equipped and the condo was located in peace and quiet environment. It was all comfortable throughout the day time, but in the evening it was too hot with just one air conditioning in master bedroom so wanted another in the second bedroom.
It's not of room experience but the swimming pool had too strict rules, such as no floating device and no alcohol so couldn't enjoy it so much because I love to enjoy poolside cocktail and beer.
Excellent vacation location

View and weather condition is excellent for vacation. But the house needs more air condition for each room.

We just got home from Maui and our stay was great, the condo is a little dated and could definatly use some blackout blinds in the bedrooms as we have little kids who were up with the sun at 6 am everyday because it was so bright in the bedrooms. The pool area is great and the beach is very close. We are already thinking about our return to Maui!
5 days in Wailea

The unit is spacious and as presented in the photographs. Pros - well located, very large unit (great for a family of 4), enjoyed the use of the beach chairs and umbrella, lovely development, well appointed (pots and pans, blender, toaster, rice cooker, etc). Cons - carpet not well vacuumed on arrival (shag seems to keep things), screen door somewhat broken, street noise at night in master bedroom (with windows open).

Worked well for family of 5. Lots of great beaches nearby. Onsite swimming pool very pleasant. Only has air con in main bedroom. Fans in other bedroom and living area.
Reasonable condo, great location
Reviewed on Sunday, February 21, 2016
The condo itself is reasonable, clean and with basic amenities. Entire place is carpeted, aside from kitchen, which does not seem ideal given sand issue and in the bathrooms, but I suppose helps buffer sounds. Bare minimum of items provided (i.e. Exactly 4 toilet paper rolls, 4 dishwasher tablets, 3 garbage bags), which seems a little excessive in restraint. Such a contrast to other places we have rented, as many provide soap/shampoo, some condiments in fridge, salt pepper. We also were disappointed it was not closer to beach- which is about 10 minute walk accross busy road and maps we had looked at were decprive there. Lastly groundskeepers do operate loudly some mornings but we pretty much only slept and made occasional meals at the place. Overall, it was serviceable and in Wailea, for the price, reasonable.
Pros- we love staying in this part of Wailea as it is close enough to finer things when you want them, yet also only 2 minute drive to south Kihei and more reasonable restaurants, groceries. Close to great beaches and snorkeling at the Reserve in Makena. Also I will say the pool is nice and grounds very well kept up.
Again, the price matches the experience given the location. All relative to your choice of location on island.
What a great place!

We initially had an issue as the condo was not actually available at check-in. There were workmen repairing the air conditioning and also the cleaning crew was still working. This resulted in getting check-in about 3 hours late. Kudos to the management company for making it right. I wouldn't hesitate to use Maui Condo and Car again for a rental.

condo clean and large enough for 5 persons in the same family. big lanai with bbq was great. dishwasher was usefull. dish towels would need to be bleached. there is no partial ocean view in my opinion. ac in the master room only which is not always enough. pool is good too. I would recommend that place. please repair the net in the patio door. Also the TV support is not strong enough for the tv weight.

We enjoyed the rental very much. It felt like home and the room with the optional a/c worked wonders for one person. The wifi was most welcomed. The location is perfect for getting to shops and the beach. There were enough windows to allow the tradewinds to blow through the rooms. I really liked that most of the time it was quiet, even being close to a nearby busy road. Great overall stay!

Our stay in Wailea was wonderful. The condo was spacious and close to all amenities. The condo was clean the pull out couch was very comfortable. We were provided with a cooler,beach umbrella, beach chairs and two boogie boards which we used every day. It would have been nice to have had heavier blankets on the bed. The microwave in the kitchen often would stop and we would have to use the breaker box to get it going again. Other than those small issues, we would definitely recommend staying at this condo.

The Palms is a beautiful property. Our unit was very clean upon our arrival. Our party consisted of 4 adults and two children (7 & 9). The living room is very comfortable for larger groups and the over sized lanai is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast and dinner. The pictures give you a perfect feel for the place. I wouldn't do 6 adults, but it was great for our party.
They provide 4 Tommy Bahama Beach chairs which we probably wore out!
The location is perfect for day trips to all the great South Maui and Makena beaches. We loved it and highly recommend it to anyone.

Maui Condo and car was our booking agent and they were first class. Available, professional and everything was ready when we arrived. Accommodations were excellent. Walk to the beach is about 2 blocks. Two nice TVs, great BBQ etc. The contract requests that you wash and dry your towels before you leave to assist the cleaning ladies. I disagree with that. You also are to put dishes in dishwasher, pick up garbage, all of which is fine. Laundry? I don't think so. My bill reflected $150 to pay for cleaning. They can do their own load of towels. Other than that, an awesome place. I would stay there again.
Palms at Wailea 1904
Reviewed on Tuesday, December 2, 2014
Nice place, pictures are accurate good for 4 people-2of which should be children due to the single beds in the second bedroom. The second bedroom is just off the living room with slat-like doors so it's a little loud if anyone is trying to sleep.
The place was clean as you'd expect. But it's 10 to 15 minutes to walk downhill to the beach, not 5 as mentioned to me. Of course when you've cooled off it's back uphill, in the heat. There is very limited parking at the closest beach. There is a shower. The condo's pool and hot tub are a two minute walk though.
Couple of gripes though 1) the place fronts a large expanse of lawn with a 4 lane road on the other side of a hedge. It isn't quiet when there are cars. To be fair the road goes from 2 lanes to 4 right across from the condo. Since there is only a/c in the master bedroom the windows and doors are open..... 2) the 1 mattress pad over an old mattress is a joke-it bunches up under you and makes an annoying crinkle sound. For the price of this place a cheap mattress pad is lame. 3) the bathroom fan makes you feel like you're at the airport--headphones ARE required. The fan is so loud it will give you a headache not to mention wake anyone who is sleeping in the master bedroom. I have a gasoline chainsaw that's quieter! And I'm not kidding. A new shower head with a less harsh spray would make life easier for anyone who sunburned their shoulders.
Check the wind forecast before you arrive. One small a/c unit only cools the bedroom. The week we were there there was no wind, not even a breeze so the place was stifling. Lastly, the grounds were in meticulous shape, because the guys were at it wether it needed it or not. However, I didn't appreciate the smell of herbicide sprayed from a golf cart roving all around.

Great place to stay for a family

Our family had a very nice stay at Palms at Wailea 1904. The unit is walking distance from a very nice beach and includes umbrella and chairs for renters to use. The grill on the private balcony was nice to have, we used it a lot. Tip; If you have a late flight out put your things in the car and spend the day at the pool. There are showers a fridge and a place to change. It made the last day much more enjoyable to have those amenities available.

We loved this condo. It was so easy to rent the front desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. The place was very clean. I really liked that we didn't have to carry a key. One less thing to worry about when you are at the beach or traveling around. The location was great. We could walk to the beach and the shops of Wailea was close. If you plan to rent a car ask for the code it made a huge difference in prices.

The layout of the condo was excellent. Kitchen and appliances as well as washer/dryer should be replaced. The furniture and flooring excellent. Patio doors were damaged and should be properly maintained. The fan in ensuite was disturbingly loud. Snorkel and masks should be thrown out and replaced, or just not provided. I suggest a better system for thebbq, having lost our dinner upon first bbq as we ran out of gas... Maybe a spare? Lovely location and convenient. Common property including pool were excellent.

A pleasant stay overall. One adult and three teenagers. The property met all our needs and the location had easy access. When not at the beach or site seeing, we spent our time at the pool. I suggest that given the times, flat screen TVs that accommodate widescreen movies, games, and programs be swapped in for the old style tube TVs.

This condo was in a great location with a short walk to the beach. The grounds and pool were beautiful and we loved having the beach chairs, beach umbrella and boogie boards at our disposal. We only recommend this condo for four people as the foldout sofa was broken and really uncomfortable. This condo has a few maintenance issues that if addressed would bring it up to the standards of the rest of the condo group. Mainly it needed a really good thorough cleaning and a screen door on the lanai. I think a good quality air mattress would be better than the sofa bed option.

We really enjoyed our vacation but it was sooooooooo HOT in the condo. Only the MB is air conditioned. They did bring in a portable unit but didn't help much. We also had a prob. with the refrigerator and needed a repairman. Loved the large deck and new BBQ grill and the location was nice. The pool area is beautiful and you are close to several nice beaches. The staff was real friendly and tried their hardest to please us. All in all it was a good stay for 7 of us with plenty of room. They just really, really need to air cond. the whole unit!

The Palms at Wailea is in a great location. Very convenient distance to shops, beaches, etc. The pool is great and well maintained. We stayed in #1904. It was fairly clean but needed upgrades as far as decor and amenities. Some utilities were not present,e.g. extra trash bags, iron was absent. We stayed during the weekend so there was no one available for assistance (e.g. normal maintenance) except emergencies only. That being said, it was a pleasant stay overall.

The Palms of Wailea are gorgeous as far as an overall property and the location is ideal. However, our individual condo was a bit run down. The beds were uncomfortable so we slept on the couch a lot. The kitchen was lacking basics...even some salt and pepper to cook with would have been nice. The stove was barely working. We are a family that is pretty easy going and can make do anywhere but for the money the unit was disappointing. However, I would definitely recommend the Palms as the place to stay in Maui.
Palms at Wailea- Quiet and Classy

We enjoyed our stay at the Palms at Wailea, Unit #1904. The place is well located and the unit is a good size. It was quiet, clean and well stocked with most items. We made good use of the quality beach chairs, mats, towels and umbrella provided.
There are 2 issues that should be addressed, however. There is a problem with the electrical outlets in the kitchen as the toaster and the microwave oven kept blowing the breakers and we constantly had to keep resetting it.
We also were unhappy with the lack of blankets. There is only 1 thin cotton blanket on each bed. My husband was sick for part of our stay and needed to stay warm at night. We had to use the 2 small twin sized cotton blankets in the 2nd bedroom along with the one in the master bedroom to be comfortable. Luckily there was only the two of us staying there at the time. Had we had other family members with us, as we sometimes like to do, that would have been a bigger problem.
If the 2 issues above could be addressed, we would be more than happy to recommend this condo to others and stay there again ourselves.

This was the second time we have stayed at the Palms in Wailea and we love it- it is walking distance to the ocean, great beach and snorkling and far enough to feel private without the hustle and bustle of the resort town.

Had a wonderful time in this large and well kept 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom condo on the 2nd floor. It has a nice large patio with a gas grill. Nice amenities including beach chairs. The pool is really nice with a beautiful view of the ocean and sunsets. The only issue we had was that the unit got very warm in the afternoon - one air conditioner in the master bedroom so it stayed cool but the living room and other bedroom would get very warm in the afternoons.
Overall the Palms at Wailea are like paradise and we had a wonderful time. Also, Maui Condo and Car were extremely helpful.

I hope they left it in there, we baught it there and decided to leave it for others to use if needed. There were beach towels and packable beach chairs to use in the condo.

Our ten day stay at the The Palms #1904 was wonderfull. Starting with the great location of the property on the Wailea/Kihei border, only a short distance to many restaurants, shopping and of course the beaches. The unit itself was on the second level providing a wonderfully sunny south facing view of the greenspace and ocean beyond, although some traffic noise from the adjacent road. The grounds at the Palms were well manicured and the pools area was fantastic with a stunning ocean view. The unit itself could use a few more supplies, such as kitchen towels and beach gear, but was otherwise well equiped. The furniture was a little old and outdated but comfortable. Only a few minor maintanance issues encountered, but nothing requiring imediate attention. Overall a great stay, we would definetely stay at The Palms again.
