About the property

1 Bedroom + convertible bed in Living Room, 2 Full Bathrooms (Sleeps 2-5)

Perfect Wailea Ekahi condominium, tastefully renovated! Ground floor center unit, #13B. Bamboo hardwood floors recently installed in the living area. New air conditioning in the living room and bedroom. Wireless Internet in the unit if you just have to stay connected! (What kind of vacation is that?) Ipod player, so bring your favorite music. Sleeps 4 in comfort (5 with a kid's blow-up bed). 2 full bathrooms. Center lower unit in building 13, so no stairs to deal with, and a short, level walk from the parking lot. Large lanai (with 2 chaise lounges, a loveseat, a new gas barbeque, table and 4 chairs) which opens directly onto a lawn. Quiet and secluded adult pool close by, with the Ekahi family pool, rentable pavilion, and Keawakapu beach just a few steps beyond.

Ekahi is probably Wailea's best condominium development - conveniently located, beautifully kept, with excellent on-site management, and friendly (but very alert) security. It is less than 18 miles or 30 minutes from Kahului airport (OGG), which has many non-stop flights from the US & Canada. You'll find yourself driving slowly from the airport, just to soak in the feeling of being on the island!

About David Parry

Lauren and I live in San Francisco and work full time there in residential real estate.

We bought this unit from delightful, long-term, original resident owners.

Lauren personally supervised a major remodel of it, adding exquisite furnishings and air conditioning! She updates it every 6 months, recently installing bamboo hardwood floors in the living area and new cabinet facings in the kitchen and bathrooms.

I was delighted when I found out that Ekahi had been designed by the highly-respected San Francisco architectural firm of Esherick, Homsey, Dodge and Davis. As an architectural researcher, I wrote an article several years ago on their founder Joe Esherick. I'll e-mail that article to you upon request.

David Parry purchased this condo in 2008

Why David Parry chose South Maui

Ekahi attracts many full-time residents as well as vacationers. It is a mature, peaceful, well-managed condominium complex in Wailea, with beautifully-maintained grounds. Facing west, you'll enjoy fabulous sunsets at all times of the year! Staying in our unit at Ekahi, you'll understand why the locals say 'Maui No Ka Oi' ('Maui is the Best').

What makes this condo unique

13B is a quiet center lower unit, so it has no stairs, the largest private lanai in Ekahi, and every room enjoys the ocean view! It is just steps to the nearest, quiet, adult-only pool and 300 yards or a 3 minute walk to lovely Keawakapu beach and the beachfront walking/jogging trail that leads to the Shops at Wailea and the major hotels. You'll just love it! Take advantage of the slower summer months to kick back and enjoy a long vacation here!

Beautiful picturesque condo

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It had everything you could ask for, so much better than an overcrowded hotel. Best part was being on the first level; we loved grilling on the lanai which was our favorite hangout (besides the beaches and ocean!). It was extremely clean and beautifully decorated and updated as advertised. It was paradise and made our first trip to Hawaii perfect. The complex was beautifully maintained and the adult pool was just a few steps away. Larger pool had accommodations for everyone, no rushing to "claim" beach lounges. Also a large beautiful shaded patio area to relax and enjoy the views. Communication with the owners was A++++ and prompt. Would highly recommend this vacation condo and we will definitely be back!

This property was exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed for our time spent at Ekahi Village! Since I was doing some cooking, it was so nice to have spices & condiments there.

The furniture was very comfortable & very nicely decorated. The grocery store was nearby as was other shopping & restaurants. If we come back to Maui we would rent this place again. The owner responded quickly if we had questions.

Perfect in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you already think 'Paradise' when you think of Maui, then staying in this unit will take your vacation to the next level. Everything in this condo, from the furnishings to the kitchen supplies and appliances, is top-notch. You will feel like you are staying in the home of a good friend who really wants to pamper you. The expansive lanai boasts two loungers, a Weber gas grill, a table and chairs, extra seating and a 'to die for' view of the ocean. The well-manicured grounds are lush with vegetation, pools and a superb beach area for swimmers and snorkelers alike. If it's paradise you are seeking, look no further than this lovely condo.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife was opposed to renting a condo, that is, until she arrived at the Parry's unit. Now I don't think she'll ever go back to a hotel! What they failed to tell you about the recent updating is that they put in nothing but FIRST CLASS everything, from the sheets to the appliances. Everything you need to make your vacation memorable is there for your use. And the owners are very accommodating to your every need, from an early check in to a late check out. We can honestly give this property the highest of recommendations.

We found the unit very nice, everything worked. We liked being up from the beach because we had a ocean view. The swimming pool was very nice. The complex is also very nice and very well kept up. Very good restaurants close by.

Quick little get away

  • 5 of 5

I booked this trip for a surprise 10 year anniversary for my wife and I. this was the first trip without our children in 8 years and we only had 5 days.

We rented a car from the airport but we never used it except to and from the airport. If you like to walk you are only 1-2 km's from shops at Wailea and the fancy hotels so you can find all sort of food and shopping. The beach is great and has snorkelling area nearby.

The complex is very nice ... lots of grass and gardens. Very few of the units are close enough to the beach to hear the waves, but the sound of birds chirping in the morning was a great way to wake up. The gardens and pools were well kept.

As far as unit, it was ideally situated ... one of the few with a view of the ocean from the Lanai (although partially blocked by greenery ... which was nice for the privacy). After a walk around of the village we thought we had the best Lanai (larger, private + view)

The interior of the unit was clean and modern, and the bed was very comfortable. the kitchen was well stocked with appliances, glassware, etc. nice BBQ as well (but we never used it).

They have beach towels, beach bag, beach coolers, beach chairs, 2 sets of snorkelling mask, large and small boogie boards ... so well stocked. They also have paddle tennis racquets (courts at resort looked very nice). We would have played but no ball was found. Apparently you need a regular tennis ball (and first puncture it with a needle to take out air pressure).

Perfect place for a couple (old or young). I should have inspected the hide-a-bed to see if it was comfortable. I assume it is, and if so it would be fine to bring the kids back to.

Happy hour at Tommy's in Wailea shops is great. Lot's of fine dining around, but more expensive.

All in all, we were very pleased with both the complex and our choice of unit. we hope to be back soon.
