Overview

About the property

Ekahi 53d is a 1-bedroom luxury condo with a stunning ocean view from the lanai.

Encase yourself in luxurious comfort while you soak up the sights, sounds and sunshine of beautiful Wailea, Maui.

From the moment you walk in to your contemporary ocean-view condo, you’ll know you’ve chosen a wonderful home base from which to rejuvenate between excursions into the island paradise that surrounds you.

While in your condo, you’ll feel completely comfortable. Recently renovated by an award-winning architectural design team, Ekahi 53D features a state-of-the-art kitchen, a designer bedroom with king-sized bed, marble bathroom and elegant furnishings throughout. The lanai faces an ocean view, along with splashing humpback whales, when in season.

53D also features countless amenities designed to make you feel at home, including brand new multi-unit air conditioning system, outdoor Weber barbecue, flat screen HDTV, wireless internet access and DVD/CD players. Plus, you'll find ample beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, and coolers in the unit for your convenience. You may never want to go home.

Step outside, and Wailea’s inviting Keawakapu Beach stands ready and waiting, just a short stroll from your front door. Additionally, four pools, each unique and immaculately maintained are scattered around the property, including a large oceanfront pool and family dining area. Indulge in the floral scents, the breathtaking sunsets, the soothing feel of the perfectly refreshing temperature of the Pacific Ocean.

Venture off in the other direction and discover the luxury spas, fine dining and world class shopping that make Wailea one of the world’s most spectacular resorts--and all within walking distance.

This wonderful rental condo is ideal for honeymooners or couples just looking to get away from it all. There are also two twin-sized futons that can be provided to accommodate two extra guests.

Ekahi 53D sells out quickly. So stop dreaming about it and make your perfect Maui vacation a reality today.

Q & A

What are some fun things to do at your vacation rental?

The Ekahi Village has four unique pools scattered throughout, including a “quiet pool” that is just a minute walk from the unit, as well as a large ocean-front pool that is about a four minute walk away. The large pool has a picnic area, cooking area, refrigeration facilities, barbecues, showers, rest rooms and shuffleboard. Beyond the property, you are in the heart of one of the nicest resorts in the world—award-winning beaches, countless outstanding restaurants, world-class shopping and all the best Maui has to offer in terms of water sports, hiking and golf.

What are some fun things to do beyond the property?

The south side of Maui features a wide variety of sun-drenched, outdoor options. For golfers, there are several world-class golf courses, all within a few minutes drive. For those who love the water, the string of beaches throughout Wailea is unmatched in the world—each with its own unique personality. To the north, you’ll find world-class surfing waves. To the south, you’ll find waves that are ideal for swimming & boogie boarding, as well as calm coves where the snorkeling is beyond description.

How is the beach at Ekahi Village?

Constantly recognized as one of the top beaches on Maui, Keawakapu Beach was recently described by New York Times as “South Maui’s hidden jewel”. The ultra clear waters of Keawakapu are ideal for snorkeling, swimming and safe boogie boarding. And the occasional afternoon trek of sea turtles just off-shore is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

What can you tell me about Wailea in terms of shopping & dining?

Just south of Ekahi 53D, you’ll find some of the world’s finest shopping and dining experiences. The Shops At Wailea is just a short walk away. Considered the most unique shopping experience in Hawaii, this elegant outdoor mall has it all—top fashion retailers, artisan gift shops and a wide range of dining options. In terms of restaurants, you’d be hard pressed to match the density of fantastic dining in Wailea anywhere in the world. Local favorites, such as Longhi’s, Gannon’s, Duo and Ko mix with big names such as Spago, Ruth’s Chris & Tommy Bahama. You can literally walk to a different amazing restaurant every day for several weeks without eating at the same place twice.

What makes unit 53D special?

That’s easy—53D is in fabulous condition. Recently renovated by an award-winning architectural design team, Ekahi 53D is contemporary, comfortable and full of great amenities. Inside the unit, you’ll find a state-of-the-art kitchen, designer master bedroom and spacious bathroom all kept at your ideal temperature with brand new multi-unit air conditioning. The living room includes ultra-comfy furniture and a flat-screen TV. Outside on the lanai, you’ll find a beautiful straight-on view of the blue Pacific, comfortable furniture and a personal BBQ unit. If you’re looking for a spacious, comfortable place to set up camp and enjoy Maui, 53D is the ideal spot. Ekahi 53D sells out quickly, so book it today!

Why Craig & Andrea Jacobin chose South Maui

We acquired Wailea Ekahi 53D because it is one of the most beautiful properties in the village and the ocean view from the lanai is amazing. But most importantly, it is perfectly located within Wailea--which is easily one of the most amazing resorts on earth. Ekahi 53D is a luxury condo that is lovingly cared for with state-of-the art air-conditioning recently installed to ensure your comfort. The unit is always well kept and extremely clean.

What makes this condo unique

Ekahi 53D is just a short 4 minute walk to a world-class beach, perfect for sunbathing, taking a dip or snorkeling. The unit offers straight-ahead views of the ocean, as well as nightly stunning sunsets from the lanai. It is also conveniently located within a short walk of all that Wailea has to offer--world-class spas, shopping, golf and dining.

Relaxing Wailea Maui

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed 12 nights at this picturesque Maui condo. Beautiful views from the Lanai. Very good layout of the condominium supplied with everything to enjoy the holiday. Nicely furnished and decorated. The grounds offered various pools with lots of places to enjoy the sun. Good beach access. Great location to enjoy Wailea and Kihei areas. A few extra rules regarding air conditioning and general use of the premises with financial consequences which could have been included in the initial booking. Overall a very enjoyable holiday.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Ekahi is a great condo complex, that has the advantages of the beauty and beach access of Wailea, without the cost of staying in expensive luxury hotels. We stayed at 53D for a week before Christmas and really enjoyed the accommodation. Fairly basic condo, but was clean and had everything we needed. The flowers and view from the lanai were especially memorable. Easy walk to the beach and pool. Would recommend it and would stay there again.

Lovely property, quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Easy walking distance to shops at Wailea and beach. Unit well equipped at arrival.

Parking pass hard to get if you arrive on a weekend. Office open weekdays from 8am, closed for lunch. As we had day trips planned, we never got the pass.

Wailea is a stunning, world-famous resort that still has an island feel on the lovely, sunny, south side of Maui.

Wailea is famous for its miles of pristine beaches that vary in personality from quiet coves ideal for swimming, paddleboarding and snorkeling, to those for the more adventurous who may want to boogie board or surf.

Wailea features several 5-star resorts within a 2 mile stretch (Fairmont Kea Lani, Four Seasons, Grand Wailea, Marriott Outrigger, Andaz), each with a variety of amazing dining and shopping options.

There are also several world-class golf courses and two tennis clubs with lights and available instruction.

At Ekahi 53D, you won't need your car to walk to the beach, dine ocean front, shop snorkel, paddleboard and more.

If you have never been, Wailea is a place you'll fall in love with immediately. And if this is a return visit, we're definitely not surprised.
