We rented the Leilei Penthouse and Ohana Hale for the last week of June. It was amazing and Chelsea was very helpful. The pictures do the reality justice. There were 11 of us, half of whom were teens - so we needed lots of space. each room has a newly remodeled bathroom and is spacious and airy. Just be mindful that the two loft rooms upstairs in the penthouse are open to the living room and kitchen (respectively) below. though my nephew was upstairs and didn't seem to mind.Lots of beach toys - and there is a small secluded beach literally right across the beach. And the surfing beach is just one rock outcropping over. the big beach (with turtles) is half a block away. It is walking distance to shops and restaurants. It's very nice to be in Kihei, which has more of a family feel, than in the true resort hotel areas.
Our stay at the LeLe penthouse of the Wailea Inn was what Hawaiian vacations are meant to be. We were 15 in our group including 6 kids. The penthouse was huge with 4 bedrooms (all with bathrooms) and a large lovely loft area (with bathroom) for sleeping and visiting. The kitchen was fully equipped. Only steps away to beautiful Charley Young beach. Terrific pool area with a free standing hot tub. Manager Chelsea was fantastic...so sweet and accommodating and concierge Matthew was so helpful in planning our stay. Our every need was met with a smile. Wish we were there right now.
