Whether you’re looking for a luxury resort and spa, or a luxury estate to call home, you will find only the best in luxury Maui vacation rentals here. Pamper yourself at the Palms at Wailea, Wailea Grand Champions, Wailea Ekahi, or any of our other incredible upscale South Maui vacation rentals.
Beaches along Wailea/Makena are some of the best. There are a handful of beaches to explore, all of which are great to soak up the warm tropical Maui sun. Makena Beach, aka ‘Big Beach’ is one of the largest beaches on Maui and is great for swimming, boogie boarding, or just lying out on the sand. Just to the right of Big Beach is Little Beach, which is known to be a nudist beach; ideal for those who hate tan lines, or looking to partake in a Sunday evening drum circle. Makena Cove is a very relaxing and quiet beach, great for swimming in the crystal clear blue water or a secluded Maui beach wedding. And for great snorkeling, check out La Perouse Bay located south of Wailea.
If you’re looking to get away from the beach for the day and do a little shopping, The Shops at Wailea is surrounded by luxury resorts and residential communities and offers over 60 different restaurants, local boutiques, internationally well-known luxury shops, and art galleries. Great for both visitors and residents, attend one of the free monthly events and enjoy a relaxing day at The Shops at Wailea.
