Categorized as Maui Vacation Information

Royal Ilima at Wailea Beach Villa
Beyond luxury, this villa elevates the good life to a lavish one. It’s likely a millennium version of a palatial estate akin to Hawaiian royalty’s summer escapes centuries ago. Located on Maui’s South Shore in Wailea, the home is suited for the traveler seeking romance, comfort, luxury and a dream respite. The view of the ocean is magnificent, just beyond your own oasis; the daybreak, sunset and times in between are unbelievable, with soft, sunshine mornings and candy-colored evenings. The South Shore’s sun teams with blue skies during the day so lounging by the infinity pool will be a frequent activity. A private veranda for cocktails, cozy living and sleeping areas will entice you to spend most or all of your time at home, but the sights and eateries nearby are plentiful.

Kapalua Manor
Maui’s West Side offers plenty to do for the sports enthusiast, with golf, surfing and snorkeling nearby. The Kapalua Manor is a place to unwind after an active day or a restful one and, either way, it is a luxurious retreat. The views of the ocean and mountains in the distance are peaceful and you’ll enjoy them indoors and throughout the home. The light, airy interior makes this elegant home inviting and cozy all at once. Spend time in the Jacuzzi, make the one minute walk to the beach and enjoy gourmet meals on nights you want to spend at home. Kapalua Manor is ideal for an extended family or group of friends.

Bella Mare Estate
A dreamy estate, this luxury vacation rental is in Lahaina and beautifully manages to be grand while intimate. Both inside and outdoors, you’ll enjoy sumptuous meals with cocktails. The pool is large enough for laps, lounging on the lanai and enjoying gourmet meals. The master outdoor shower, cozy suites, striking sunsets, koi pond and spacious family room are highlights to make this a vacation home perfect for a couple or small family. Lahaina’s duality of New England charm by the harbor and sunny shoreline makes it a fantastic part of Maui to explore. The town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, so take advantage of the close proximity to heritage sites, art galleries, boutiques and a variety of eateries. Sitting on the lanai at night for stargazing and ultimate relaxation is one of the popular guest activities.

A warm, inviting home, Azure is like living in a Zen garden, with just about every view from inside and outdoors offering a serene glimpse of the landscapes, sky and sea. The openness of the home makes the pool an outdoor focal point and spacious lounging areas inside serve as interior focal points, perfect for entertaining and enjoying each other’s company.

Located in the Kaanapali resort area, Azure provides easy access to beaches, golf, sailing, diving and Whalers Village. You’ll likely want to spend most of your time at home, with the infinity edge pool and Jacuzzi, but when you want to venture beyond the home, Kaanapali offers plenty to do, including spas and upscale restaurants. The privacy will make you feel safe and secure, but also allow you to fully relax in Azure’s splendor.

Malukai O Makena
An unreal find, this luxury sanctuary is every traveler’s dream. Located in Makena on the South Shore, this Maui find is in the historic NARS district of Maui. The infinity pool, ingenious architecture, indoor/outdoor lounging areas and waterfalls exude the ultimate in relaxation. This is the honeymooning pair’s indulgent escape or anniversary couple’s surreal paradise.

Almost 360° views of the ocean enhance the essence of a tranquil island vacation experience and the home is simply an island within the island. The gourmet kitchen, Balinese décor and multiple places within the home for cozy curling up will warm you to Malukai O Makena. Watch the sunrise with a steaming hot cup of coffee and pastries in the morning, laze around in the sun by the pool or in it and enjoy cocktails and tapas early evening before a leisurely gourmet dinner.
