We have been coming to Hawaii since the 70’s and have stayed in many different places on most of the islands from time to time. So, it is with confidence and experience when I say, that our beautiful, two bedroom, two bath, Wailea condominium is a great place to vacation! We were one of the first to purchase a site when these were being built, and as a result of our early choice, this unit has one of the best panoramic views of the complex. As you gaze out into the blue Pacific, you see a spectacular view of the island of Kahoolawe, fronted by the snorkeling destination of the tiny island, Molokini. Spanning across the water, the distant island of Lanai comes into view, offering a silhouetted and nightly backdrop for awe-inspiring sunsets. As you follow the view to the north,there is a small view of the West Maui Mountains, rising up from the valley completing this wonderful panorama. Often, during whale season, multiple sightings are common even as you sit on the lanai, enjoying your breakfast, lunch or dinner relaxing in the warm tropical breezes of Maui. Speaking of the lanai,it is fronted by quite a nice area of lawn that adds to its generous feeling and is surrounded by tropical plantings of plumeria and palms and ferns .
Recently, we have just completed a remodel, adding tile floors, granite counter-tops, new cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, furniture, and a complete paint job! It is very accommodating and easy to live in for your stay in Maui.
The condominium is on the tee of the 16th hole of Wailea’s Blue Golf Course and is just a short drive of 5 minutes or less to play this classic course. Also, very near by are Wailea’s Gold and Emerald courses, and if that isn’t enough golfing options, just a short drive to Makena, brings two more beautiful golf courses to choose from. Wailea also boasts a wonderful tennis facility, again, just a short drive from our condominium.
The Shops at Wailea, a unique open and airy mall with many interesting shops, also features some upscale retailers such as Gucci, Coach, Guess, to name a few. The Shops at Wailea also has four terrific restaurants: Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Tommy Bahamas, Longis, and the casual and fun, Cheeseburger Island Style.
The condominium is close to both swimming pools on the complex, each of which are hidden in a wonderful tropical garden setting and are a welcome retreat to swim or just lay back and read while the day passes by. Located on the common grounds, there are charcoal grills for grilling up your barbeque favorites such as steak or perhaps a fillet of fresh local caught fish available in the nearby markets. There is also an electric grill for use at the condominium if you choose to grill on your own lanai. We are close within minutes to many beautiful beaches, including Polo, Wailea, Mokapu and Ulua beaches. Snorkeling around the lava out flows on these beaches is a common activity, as well as just enjoying the expanses of golden sand and beautiful blue surf. Wailea is located on the lea side of the island where it is less affected by inclement weather and is considered to be 'the dry side' of the island for more fun in the sun.
The condominium has one king-size bed and one cal-king size bed, and is ideal for no more than four people.
Should you decide to stay in our condominium, I know your visit will be filled with peaceful solitude and many wonderful tropical memories of Maui.

About: We really have always loved Hawaii. One adventure that comes to mind, was back in 1988 when we went to visit the Island of Molokai for the day. We took the Island Princess ferry over and while having a lunch down by the ocean, we were invited to a local style luau later that day. We followed the directions that led us down an old dirt road lined with Mango trees that opened up to the beach, with a little grass shack and the pig in the imu. We had a great time and missed the ferry back but went home with the hula dancers who graciously put us up for the night. When we got back to Maui the next day, Tad, wrote a song called 'Molokai Slide' that 8 years later, was recorded by Ehukai and became a huge hit in the islands and is still played today as an oldie but goodie.
No matter what adventure we have found ourselves in, it always felt good to return to the peace and solitude of our condo.
Why Wailea Ekolu: Our Family has been coming to Hawaii since the early 70's. I can remember when Kihei Road had very little on it except for a few local eating places and a few hotels. Then it happened. It just blew up in popularity and next thing you knew, your staring at a Denny's on Kihei Rd. and you wonder what happen!! We had stayed at many different locations up and down Kihei Rd. and some proved to be better than others, but my Father in Law, the late Glen Hicks, was fortunate enough to win a prime choice of locations when Ekolu was just in the design phase. I know I have mentioned this before but, I think the location we have is really a strategic choice. Because of the common area in front of us, we have a beautiful view, and the Blue golf course to the south, provides an ample buffer in that direction. The road into the parking area, beyond the landscaping, is another buffer zone as well as the parking area to the East. All in All, it really has an uncrowded feel and at times, I feel like I am the only one staying there. I also like the fact that we are very close to the beach, minutes away, with out being in the touristy overcrowded scene. I can go and enjoy the beach, and world class shopping, then get away just as easily when I want the peace and solitude of our place, just a little up the slope of Haleakala, perched above the blue Pacific.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo: I would just say that because of its close proximity to so many wonderful beaches, fun shopping, and all kinds of dining, it really is a great location. World class golfing, surfing, and so many adventures are easily reached. I like the fact that the Pi'ilani Highway is easily accessed to get by Kihei quickly for access to all the other points of the islands. You would think that staying on Maui would be pretty much the same where ever you stay but there are subtle differences between such areas as Ka'anapali or of course Hana. For one, the weather is really more consistently better in Wailea. More sun!!
Wailea is really an excellent area, and our condo is sitting nice.
