The next few posts are going to be pictures from a recent trip to Maui, starting with shots from The Grand Wailea: A Waldorf Astoria Resort. No, I never stay at one of the huge resort hotels on the island, but rather in a rented condo via VRBO or Home Away. This recent trip I actually rented via Maui Rentals, Inc. and stayed in a condo with the best view to have ever had at this particular condo property. My first visit to Maui was in 1989. I had previously been to the island of Oahu (where Honolulu is situated) in 1978. Here was the balcony view from this recent visit:
And now, on to The Grand Wailea. Did I mention that my brother has worked at this hotel for a very long time? He started working at the Grand Wailea after working at a Renaissance property and after he was a windsurfing instructor for 15 years. As much as I love many of the other properties on the island, The Grand is perhaps my favorite ;-).
