    Wailea Beach Villas

    Meet The Team

    When you stay at Wailea Beach Villas, you are welcomed into our 'ohana (family). Our hallmark aloha and ho'okipa (Hawaiian hospitality) will ensure that your time with us is unlike anywhere else. 

    Lisa Carson

    Director of Villa Operations

    Lisa's first memories of Wailea predate any of the resorts that line the golden sand beaches that define Maui's popular resort area. "My father would bring me fishing here, right where Wailea Beach Villas now stands. We would follow the stream down between the kiawe trees and fish all day off the beach." Years later, Lisa still finds herself following that same path along the stream, where cascading waterfalls now pay homage to the land's historical feature. Lisa's favorite moment of each guest's stay is that first moment when they walk into the lobby and they realize that they can finally let go. She greets them with a fresh flower lei and genuine aloha, welcoming them home. 

    Christy Laird

    Owner Liaison

    Originally from the south east US, Christy was drawn to Maui via Colorado by the island's sheer beauty. "No where else in the world can I go from hiking in a volcano crater at 10,000' above sea level to playing in waterfalls and catch sunset on the beach! Maui is completely unique and an incredibly special place to spend time." And for the owners and guests at Wailea Beach Villas, Christy loves sharing the beautiful residences, grounds and the overall feeling of peace that this property evokes in each person who visits. 

    Brandt Bennett

    Guest Services Manager

    As Wailea Beach Villas' Guest Experience Manager, Brandt is at the heart of the guest's journey throughout their stay. "I love the spacious, private residential accommodations and the proximity to world class activities. We are right in the heart of everything that Wailea offers, from championship golf courses to great culinary offerings and beautiful Wailea Beach." For adventure seeking guests, Brandt loves to share his list of favorite Maui adventures, including snorkeling at La Perouse Bay with their pods of resident spinner Dolphins and hiking Waimoku Falls in Hana, just past the famous Bamboo Forest.
