We just stayed at Wai Ola in Feb. We came from cold, icy Ohio. It was wonderful. We had our entire family with us - 3 grandsons -ages 8, 8, & 5 and 10 adults. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. Kim & Jim made us feel very welcome and at ease. There were fresh flowers in each of the units, fresh fruit in the kitchen and fresh coffee beans for all the coffee makers. They provided plenty of beach towels, beach mats, chairs, boogie boards, coolers, etc for us to take to the beach. The pictures don't do Wai Ola justice. It's much better. You can't sit out on your own private lanai eating breakfast and watching whales in Ohio. For us it was the perfect place. The 5 year old expressed it best when we got back to Columbus and he had tears streaming down his face and said, "I want to go back there!"

Our group stayed at Wai Ola in Dec, and the experience could not have been better. This was actually my husband's and my third time at Wai Ola but the first time to rent the entire property. The attention to detail provided to us by Jim and Kim as single-room renters in the past was just as exceptional, if not more so, as whole-house guests. The main house and rooms were spotlessly clean and ready upon our arrival to start our vacation. As we have experienced in the past, Jim and Kim were waiting to greet us and welcomed us as if we were members of their own family.

Thanks for a wonderful stay. As usual the weather was great but it was still nice to have a comfortable "Home Base" to return to. Our whole extended family will have many treasured moments from this vacation. Thanks also for all the help in guiding us where & what to do. We always found enough to do to tire us out each night. The house was very comfortable and the view was great. Thanks again - Go Buckeyes!!
The next time we go back to Wai Ola, it will seem like visiting dear friends. This impression is the direct result of how Jim and Kim make you feel when renting their home.
My favorite part of the day was coming back to this property, sitting with a refreshment by the amazing pool / patio area, sharing adventures that everyone had that day. Hands down, everybody's favorite part of the property were the outdoor spaces. In the morning, everyone would meet on the upstairs lanai to have coffee and watch the whales breach in the ocean. That's right, ocean views while having coffee. The rest of the time, everyone would hang by the pool where we would BBQ, lounge on the comfortable loungers, sit around one of two tables to visit, or unwind in the hot tub. There were nine in our group, and there was ample room for everybody.
My wife and I have stayed at Wai Ola twice and are going back again in January 09. There is no better place to stay in Maui. You are centrally located to everything, and i do mean everything, beaches, golf courses, restaurants...etc. The owners, Kim & Jim are great people who will gladly answer any questions that you may have. They know all the best places to go, and Kim's baked goods are soon to be the talk of Maui! Wai Ola offers you all the comforts of home, everything you need is there, from all the beach gear, to a portable cooler, boogie boards, at no extra cost. There is a reason that Wai Ola is rated # 1 on Trip Advisor, look no further if you are going to Maui, Wai Ola is the place to be.
