So airy, spacious and super clean ~ April 2023
My husband, daughter and I had a great 8 days in this condo. The place is so airy, spacious and super clean. Seems like the home was renovated for the owner and therefore everything especially the kitchen gears were chosen with good brand name (e.g. Mikasa dining set, chef knives, electric wine opener). The pantry had basic starters like salt, pepper and other spices. We loved the spice rack w complete variety for every cuisine dishes. We were surprised to see even fish sauce in the pantry. We felt like home immediately and took care of the home just like ours. Love to be back again in the future when we return to Maui. Thx Cara for having us over her place.
Maui no ka oi ~ October 2022
We loved it ~ June 2022
Definitely recommend ~ April 2022
This is the second time we have stayed in this condo and we have thoroughly enjoyed both times. It is very clean and well kept with beach chairs, beach towels , etc provided for the days we explored several other beaches besides the one that is very close to the condo. Cara was most accommodating when we had questions as well as coming to help us out when we accidentally locked the safe! We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone wanting a great visit to this beautiful island!
Really nice property ~ March 2022
Mahalo For A Wonderful Stay! ~ January 2022
Fantastic Getaway ~ November 2021
So I had travelled to Maui for a conference that was at the Grand Wailea and staying at this location was really convenient as the conference hotel was only 5 minutes away. The condo is located in a fantastic community about 10 minutes walk to the beach. The neighbors were really friendly always stopping us in the parking lot to chat or see if we were doing ok. The pictures do not do it justice. We loved every minute of our stay in Maui and to be big extent due to the unit that we stayed at. We plan on coming back and hopefully can get this unit again.
Awesome stay ~ July 2021
First time in Maui and loved our stay here in 503. Cara was very helpful throughout the entire process. Condo was well stocked and I truly appreciated the ac units in every room.
Great place to stay ~ June 2021
We were very impressed with everything about this property and the owners. Communication before leaving was great; Cara would get back to us quickly and gave us updated Hawaii info related to Covid. She was prompt with questions we had while we were there and was also so kind as to leave us delicious apple bananas!! This condo is in a beautiful location-we would go back in a heartbeat. We all felt relaxed and comfortable with plenty of space to spread out. We loved that it was equipped with chairs and boogie boards! Also loved having our own grill; there were lots of nice touches and amenities throughout the condo. This is a wonderful place to stay!
Home away from Home for month long stay ~ May 2021
This Condo was an ideal place to call home for a month in Maui. It is located in a less busy part of the Island, but central enough to reach any destination within a reasonable amount of time. The Condo has a very comfortable king size bed in the master bedroom and the bathroom is great. All furniture is relatively new and clean. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances, pots & pans, cooking utensils and some key consumables. Cara is a great host. She kept us abreast of the Maui Covid19 situation and was prompt to answer any questions. She had the Condo completely prepared for us and there were no issues during our stay. I would stay at this property again.
Just what we needed with Covid ~ April 2021
Was just perfect for our family of 2 adultsand 2 teens. It was very clean, comfortable, quiet and spacious. It had everything we needed and Cara was such a great host with great communication and tips. Highly recommend!
Happy month-long guest ~ March 2021
This unit is amazing! Spacious, clean, and well-located, and Cara is a great host.
~ Due to Covid-19 our condo sat mainly empty April-October 2020 ~

Palms at Wailea 503 ~ April 2019
The Palms at Wailea #503 was perfect for our 1-week stay on Maui. The condo was very clean, updated, and had all the amenities one could ask for. We enjoyed the grill on the lanai and the relaxing atmosphere away from the busyness of Kihei. We would love to come back and stay again. This is a perfect rental!
Beautifully kept property ~ December 2018
The condo was immaculately kept stocked with everything that you would need to make it a wonderful stay! Everything from beach supplies, to a drying rack for those hang to dry items. We have stayed at the Palms several times and I have to say that this would definitely be a unit that we would rent again! Cara was super helpful and great with communicating- not that we needed her at all during our stay because we had no issues! The Palms has a beautiful sunset view from the pool every evening!
Great stay for our family ~ April 2018
This was a great spot for us and our 20 month old! I was attending a conference being held at a resort just down the street and it was a very convenient location. The condo had everything we needed and the setup was perfect for us. Thanks for everything!
Review from our Airbnb guests ~ November 2017
Wow! So glad we chose your condo. Well stocked and very comfortable.
Beach chairs/umbrella/cooler was much appreciated.
Can’t wait to return to paradise.
Restaurant recommendations ~
Sansei – go early for discount – Kihei
3s – casual but delicious – Kihei
Mama’s Fish House – Paia
Flatbread – Paia (went for lunch on the Road to Hana) Monkey pod – Wailea, reservations required.
Wonderful ~ August 2017
What an amazing condo…great location, beautiful lanai and spotless! The kitchen appliances were very good quality and even a vita-mix was provided. We stayed in a lot in the evening and so it was great to have a dependable, working kitchen. The beds were so comfortable and the linens on the bed were also excellent quality..breathable cotton. It was wonderful to have a washer and dryer and the bathrooms seemed to be just newly renovated. We absolutely loved the air conditioner throughout! A must have when visiting Maui in the summer. The condo faces a grassy area and so is very private, quiet..wonderful for us to sit out with a glass of wine or with a home-made chi-chi ( made with the vita-mix). Overall an amazing experience! I would highly recommend this condo. We will be back!! Thanks Cara! 🙂
This is the Place to Stay in Maui! ~ July 2017
VRBO Property #339546 (our Palms at Wailea #503 condo) is as nice as it looks in the photos! Cara responds to all emails promptly and the property itself is in prime condition – extra clean, spacious, comfortable and modern. All details (instructions) related to the property and the surrounding area were left for us! Cara is very organized.
The pool and Jacuzzi were quite nice. The neighborhood offered a selection of places to eat and shop. Cara is easily accessible, if you need anything. The property was air conditioned and offered beach chairs, coolers and boogie boards, all handy items needed for a great beach experience.
We visited the Haleakala Crater, Road to Hana, and toured the island of Maui. It was great to come back each day to a beautiful place, in such a prime location. I highly recommend this property and would stay here again.
Thank you Cara for helping to make our experience in Maui, a great one.
Roseann, Miguel & Tyler
This 2 bedroom condo is beautiful and huge! You will not be disappointed! ~ June 2017
Lots of amenities such as beach chairs, beach mats, towels, mats, boogie boards provided for use. Very roomy master suite and great 2nd room with bathroom and twin beds. The lanai with table and chairs opens to a beautiful grass area for frisbee and playing catch. Great location and close to beaches! Definitely the best we have ever stayed at!!
Wonderful Condo for our Family ~ April 2017
Our family (two adults and two kids) stayed at Palms #503 in April 2017. This condo is very clean, well decorated, spacious, and has every amenity you require. There is a fully stocked kitchen and various beach items to borrow. The parking stall is very close to the unit. The kids loved the pool, which in close proximity to the condo. It is a short walk down the hill to the beach, and the shops of Wailea is a short drive away. We enjoyed the main floor unit. Sat on the lanai and watched the various birds and geckos. The kids enjoyed the grassy area just off the lanai. The owner is responsive and takes good care of this condo. Would definitely recommend this unit.
Palms at Wailea 503 ~ April 2017
Hi Cara thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. Truthfully, your condo was so pristine. It felt like home from the minute we walked in. We can’t wait to come back!
Amazing! ~ November 2016
This place was amazing and so are the owners! It is beautiful inside and out and has a beautiful lanai. It was perfect for us and our two kids while in Maui. The owners are wonderful – very helpful and accommodating. It was also really great they had stocked beach essentials (chairs, umbrella, etc). The location within the resort is great – it’s a close walk to the beach (10 minutes) and the view is beautiful. Highly recommended!
Fabulous 2 weeks ~ June 2016
This is the second time we rented from Cara at the Palms. Both experiences were fabulous! This time we chose to stay for two weeks. The condo is spacious, clean, and comfortable. It is close to the beach and shopping. We found a couple of food trucks near the beach and tried some local food at a few hole in the wall paces up country. Cara was available to answer any questions. Check in and out procedure is easy and has always ran smooth for us. Love the renovations Cara. The condo also has A/C in the whole house, which we found out is not very common. It was cool and relaxing during the hot sunny days on on Maui. Thanks Cara! We will be back!
Great Family Condo ~ April 2016
Our family of four – 2 adults and 2 teens had a great stay in Maui. The condo was incredibly well maintained and organized. Both our daughters now think their bathroom at our home needs to have a rain shower installed just like the condo’s clean, modern bathrooms! We appreciate the owner’s blog and also they had a copy of a Maui guidebook available to look up last minute ideas. We appreciated all the extras from beach towels to boogie boards, cooler and beach chairs. We only ate breakfast in the condo and felt a bit guilty not taking advantage of the bbq and the well stocked kitchen. Each room has A/C – but the ceiling fans and big patio doors offered up a wonderful breeze and we didn’t find the need to use the air conditioning at all. The pool area is an easy 2 minute walk and offers a bit of shade and plenty of sunshine too. This is our favorite area to stay in Maui (we hadn’t been for 7 years) and Wailea/Kihei still rate number one with us. Excellent restaurants from fancy to casual, not so crazy as the Lahaina area and perfect beaches from large to small little beach coves. It is about a 15 minute walk to the shops of Wailea and cocktail hour at all the area’s hotels. Driving plus free parking was never an issue. Favorite meals include: Monkeypod Kitchen, Pita Paradise (both for lunch and dinner) and fish tacos at Paia Fish Market in Kihei. We also enjoyed the all day catamaran Trilogy tour to Lanai and the half day snorkeling tour with Maui Magic (kids especially enjoyed the boat, staff and slide off the boat into the water), we didn’t get up for sunrise, but took the small group bike tour down the volcano with Maui Easy Riders beginning at 9:00 am and coasted down the volcano road to the smell of fresh flowers, cow fields, ocean breezes and ended in the cute town of Paia to explore and lunch at Hana Provisions. A great vacation in Maui – book it 🙂
Fantastic property, wonderful beach ~ March 2016
Our family had a great time at The Palms in Wailea rented by Cara and Sig Birkholtz through Maui Oceanview Condos. There was plenty of room for us and the condo was great and complete with top appliances and utensils. It also had laundry in-suite which was very useful for those sandy beach days. Free wi-fi was very helpful in planning our daily outings. Sitting out on the lanai in the mornings was wonderful and the bird songs were amazing. The Keawakapu beach was only a 5 minute walk away with soft sand and light surf, great for the kids to play. We used the pool at the condo almost daily as well and were pleased with its size. The employees were always busy making the grounds beautiful and well-kept. I would recommend this property to family and friends.
Great Return Visit! ~ February 2016
Stayed in this condo for the month of February for the second consecutive year and have already booked it for the next year. What can I say … very comfortable, very well equipped, quiet, great location and very attentive owners. We ran into a small problem with the air conditioner (our fault), contacted Cara, and she and Sig were there to deal with it less than 15 minutes later. Amazing!
A little corner of Paradise – Clean, comfortable and everything you need ~ December 2015
My husband, 2 teenage girls and I stayed in in this condo over Christmas and New Years. We had never used VRBO before and were a little nervous. What a treat! The condo is even better than the pictures, brighter, bigger and very comfortable (especially the beds) and VERY clean which was a relief. The owner’s exemplary service start from the moment you inquire about the unit and continue right through to the prompt return of your damage deposit. They certainly want you to feel at home and even set up a Christmas tree for us prior to our arrival (after asking if we wanted one).heck in was smooth and efficient, check out was just as easy. Cara was readily available if needed and left you alone if not. It was an easy 5 min walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The area is gorgeous and we felt very safe.
We liked the way the lanai is situated, it was quiet and off of the beaten path opening to a very nice greenspace. The kitchen was very well stocked with all we needed including a sufficient selection of spices, we just had to pick up our groceries which was an easy task with a few options available. We liked the selection at Safeway.
The girls had a blast taking a surf lesson with Kyle at the Maui Surf Shack and loved snorkeling right at the beach down from the condo where they saw many different fish and BIG turtles. We certainly put the beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and coolers to good use and didn’t have to go far to enjoy ourselves. Although, we loved our road trip to Hana. A must do with much to see… waterfalls, black sand beach, blow holes, lava tubes and breathtaking scenery.
We enjoyed having the opportunity to cook our own meals and put our feet up after exploring but If you’re not up for using the BBQ at the condo there are some great places to eat close by. Hubby and I took in Happy Hour and ate fresh sushi at the 5 Palms on more than one occasion. We had fun at Longhis, a fantastic meal at the Monleypod and don’t miss Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop on the way to Lahaina. On New Year’s Eve we took in the The Grand Luau at Honua’ula at the Grand Wailea and really enjoyed the entertainment while the food was surprisingly fresh and tasty.
We are already looking at the calendar trying to figure out when we can go back and we’ll definitely be contacting Cara and Sig. We wouldn’t hesitate to rent this condo again they have set the bar high.
Very Nice Condo; No Complaints ~ December 2015
The condo is very nice. Tile throughout; quiet, conveniently-located, with a great pool area. I would recommend to a friend for sure. Everything inside was beautiful and well-provisioned. The beds were super comfortable and the walk-in shower bathrooms very nice. All in all, a 10.
Quiet, Comfortable & Clean Condo ~ October 2015
We have stayed here for three years in a row now. The recent renovations were done very well, updating both bathrooms, floor coverings, wall coverings, furniture and the Lani complete with a new BBQ. The owners are very good to deal with. This year the vacuum cleaner hose broke and a brand new vacuum was provided immediately, as well a good sized cooler for shopping trips. The Condo has always been very clean and very well maintained. We appreciate having a well cared for property that we can visit each year knowing that it is always in great shape. We highly recommend this property, and we will be returning here for many more vacations.
Perfect Maui Condo! ~ September 2015
This condo is beautiful inside and out. We loved sitting on the lanai for breakfast each day. Easy access and close to one of the best beaches on Maui plus great shopping and dining. The condo itself is perfect….the owner thinks of all you can want or need and makes your stay perfect. We highly recommend.
Great Location and Owner ~ August 2015
We stayed here for a wedding/vacation for about a week. Cara was so informative and answered all our questions. She also accommodated for last minute changes regarding guests. The location is fantastic. Everything and anything you need is within a 5 minute drive. Lots of places to eat and things to do. A trip out to Lahaina is only like half an hour and a trip to the beginning of the road to Hana is also another 30 min. The condo itself is really clean and well kept. The best part for us was the beach chairs and accessories included. They came in really handy. Beds are comfortable and all the amenities feel brand new. Would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
Stop looking around…this is the one! ~ August 2015
What a great place…so much room for the family to lounge around. Went to Hawaii for the first time and Maui and Cara’s condo was bang on. Will definitely come back. The kitchen was more than well equipped, the 2nd bedroom with 2 beds and it’s own washroom/shower was a big hit. The main bedroom with the vanity counter, private toilet and bath was larger than the one I live in. Having your own washer dryer, BBQ, Netflix and a land line to call long distance US or Canada is something that you don’t get in other accommodations in Maui. The parking stall is only 15 steps away, if that, and being on ground floor was a bonus when bringing in groceries and your heavy suitcases. The swimming pool facility is again a minute away from your door. it is well stocked with lounge chairs and the pool temp. was always never cold. My 7 yr old son had no problem with the depth as I think 4′ was the deepest. in the morning it was just very quiet and in the evening, there was max. 10 people in the pool. it’s a nice break from always going to a beach, but we did that daily as well. The location was perfect for my family. Very quiet condo complex, away from the busy S. Kihea road and close to 6 or more beaches within a 5-10 min drive. some older families even walked. my kids loved Ulua beach. lots of water sports within your grasp but for my family just crashing in the waves was more than enough. The last day there we saw 5 big turtles just swim across the shore line which is always a photo op and fun for the kids to walk beside them and admire their size and beauty. Near the condo there are great golf courses in Wailea and doing the Marriott Luau (2 min drive) or nice walk with the free drinks is a must. The shops in Wailea had the high and middle end shopping stores or you could walk along the s. kihea rd to find everything else. With all these amenities near the condo we hardly used our gas in our rental car. The place was clean clean clean and none of these resort fees to worry about. Cara is a great owner and truly accommodating. she is only a call away and she even provided beach chairs and boards for the family to use. Maybe the other condos are built the same, but you can’t compare quality, friendliness and the care that Cara provides. what a waste shopping around for other accommodations when this is the one that has it all. we will definitely be back again. thanks again Cara for making this trip the best we’ve had 🙂
Very Enjoyable ~ July 2015
My family including 2 pre teen girls had a great time at Cara’s condo. It is well located between Wailea and Kihea, and very near Ulua beach which has a very nice reef and was a fantastic place for the kids to snorkel. Having access to the beach chairs and cooler made it easy to pack up and head to the beach for the morning. The snorkeling is much better in the morning prior to the afternoon winds picking up. We really enjoyed our stay!
Cara’s condo at Palms Wailea ~ June 2015
Cara’s condo is fantastic. It is immaculately clean, has everything you need AND has netflix for the late evenings after a day at the beach. I highly recommend her condo and will definitely stay here again. Our two teen boys had ample room to lounge around and wished we hadn’t stayed anywhere else on the island!
Good Value ~ February 2015
We (two adult couples) spent a very enjoyable three weeks in this lovely condo. When we arrived, we were surprised to find that, unlike other condos we have rented, it was every bit as nice as the photos had indicated. It is located in a newer, quiet complex; the complex itself is centrally located in a very nice area; the unit is well ventilated, spacious, equipped inside and out with comfortable furniture, and has a wonderful large lanai that by mid-day gets plenty of both sun and shade. It simply suited our needs very well, and as a result raised the bar for what we look for in a vacation condo. This is good value for the price.
A home away from home ~ November 2014
As usual, our experience with Maui Oceanview Condos was fantastic. A beautiful condo, situated in beautiful Wailea. Very clean, well maintained, and has all the amenities that we needed to make our family vacation feel like we were still at home!
Outstanding! ~ October 2014
This condo was fabulous! It is located on the side of the island where there is very little rain. The view from the condo is great. You can sit by the pool and watch the sunset. Cara was very attentive but not intrusive. The condo is exactly as described! The beaches in Kihei are only a five minute drive away and the sand is great and the water is warm and clear. We will return but for two weeks next time! Thanks Cara for a wonderful experience. Elizabeth and Vicki.
Family Holiday ~ August 2014
Thank you Cara for another great stay! This was our second time at your place and we can’t say enough good things about your condo and your hospitality. The place is very spacious; we were there with our two big teenage boys and never felt cramped. Lots of time was spent on the lanai which is large, open, and yet private with a view of the ocean. Keawakapu Beach is beautiful and great for snorkelling; we saw turtles every day. I woke up early at sunrise( while my teenagers were still sleeping!) and walked to Keawakapu Beach which connects to a glorious beachside path between Mokapu and Polo Beach. I almost forgot…the bed in the master bedroom was a very comfortable bed. Thanks again!
