My husband and I spent 10 WONDERFUL days in this unit at Ekolu Village for our honeymoon! We LOVED our condo and felt it was a very good deal! The community was very quiet...As the sun rose on our first morning in Maui, I fell in love with the view of paradise from our very private lanai and private garden. We had a sliding glass door that walked out to a secluded patio off of the master suite and two full sliding glass doors off of the living room revealing a clear view of the Pacific Ocean and the grounds below.

The living room doors opened up to a lovely lanai with a table and chairs where we had breakfast and coffee each morning as well as a lounge chair for sunning and two more chairs in the corner that made a nice area for reading, talking, and reflecting.

The unit had an electric grill that worked great (we saved a little money by preparing a few meals at the condo). The kitchen had just about everything we needed (except spices, of course) including pots, pans, dishes, glasses, microwave, dishwasher, roomy refrigerator/freezer (with ice maker) coffee maker, blender, knives, cutting board, and all of the necessary gizmos and gadgetry such as can openers, spatulas, slotted spoons, garlic press, etc... The living room was roomy and comfortable with a large flat screen TV, DVD/VCR & IPOD charger/Player, cable TV and Netflix, High speed internet, couch chairs, etc., and a lovely dining room with the table nicely set.

The master suite was very nice with a comfortable king size bed. The two full baths were excellent. The entire condo was spotless and the grounds were immaculate! There were many other extra touches such as two fresh orchid leis and a nicely wrapped 'honeymooners' present left for us on the table which was a beautiful Maui 'coffee table' book that we will treasure as a souvenir from this fabulous trip. Beach towels and fresh bath towels were provided daily. The front desk personnel were very helpful with giving directions, suggestions, and helping to make arrangements.

Wailea is a great place to stay if you want peace and quiet. My husband and I would LOVE to return to this condo in the future. The owner was very easy to work with and extremely responsive. When we left, we made a commitment to not only come back to Wailea, but to the same unit as we felt nothing could have been better!

About Joe Frazzano

I live in the SF Bay Area and love to vacation in Maui. I think you will love the condo! The views are great and the unit is in excellent condition, all of my friends and family that have stayed in the unit always come back saying what a great location we have.

Joe Frazzano purchased this condo in 2005

Why Joe Frazzano chose Wailea

I especially like the Wailea area best due to the beautiful beaches (and in nearby Makena) as well as the shopping. You can walk to the Shops at Wailea and to the beaches from the condo. You also have access to 2 beautiful pools and BBQ's/ There is also a BBQ on the lanai. We have been coming to Maui each year in December, spending Christmas and New Years for the past 8 years. There is so much to do on Maui and yet there is also a feeling of peace and quietness. This is a perfect match of the best of both worlds!

I originally came to Maui on a Timeshare presentation and actually considered buying a timeshare. A friend of mine, a Realtor, showed me the alternatives and owning in Wailea was like a dream come true! I used to drive through Wailea all the time as I like the beaches here best, even when I was staying in Kanaapali, and used to think how gorgeous it was and how much nicer the weather here is as opposed to elsewhere on the island. I love the location of the condo too, it really has an amazing private feel to it and the views of the tops of palm trees and the ocean are awesome! You can see the Molikini Crater all the way to Molikini from Lanai!

What makes this condo unique

There is a large private flat patch of grass just outside of the lanai and it offers great views (with the ocean rising above the patch of grass) The unit is a single level condo on the lower floor but offers an view that is generally seen from the 2 story units. This is due the the fact the the condo is perched up on a bluff at the back of the community. There is easy access to the pools and BBQ's too. My favorite thing to do is to walk along the golf course in the morning when it is real quiet and no one else is outside. It is amazing to stare out at the ocean as the views are amazing. We are located on the Wailea Old Blue golf course, unobstructed view of the ocean from your lanai, 10 minute walk to the ocean, 5 minute drive, close to shopping, Maui municipal bus 5 minutes away, very quiet, ground floor unit, pool right outside our front door, parking 30 ft. from condo. We have a 40' plasma wall mounted TV and new bamboo flooring in the master bedroom. The unit is also very well maintained and is very peaceful!

Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW! We loved the location of the condo!!! We have stayed at others and they can not even compare. We loved staying so close to the beach and the amazing ocean views from the Lanai (and sunsets) were incredible. All for $149 per night in October! People are paying $600 per night at the big name hotels .5 mile away! We cooked a meal every night, the kitchen was updated and filled with every gadget I could want. We are booking another trip real soon! Thanks!

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this beautiful condo - it was very clean and comfortable. The lanai is lovely and the bed very comfortable. Our only issue was the noise. Mostly the traffic noise early in the morning- sounds like Indy 500! Crazy. Also guy sweeping sidewalks at 6:00 a.m. didn’t help. If it weren’t for the noisy location, it would be perfect.

Terrific Place to snow bird from midwest

  • 5 of 5

My hubby and I stayed in this unit for 2 weeks in February 2013. Everything was great. The unit is very clean, maintained and well equipped. We enjoyed the Lanai and the electric grill which I regularly used for many of our suppers. The 20 minute walk to the beach was great and helped us get exercise. We especially enjoyed seeing the whales during some of our beach walks. My only disappointment is the unit has already been booked for February 2014. My slowness to book is our loss. Hope to return in 2015--for at least a month. Thanks Joe! We enjoyed your home away from home.

Honeymoon Oct. 2011

Quiet. Private. Comfortable. Avoid the hub bub folks! Lanai is the perfect spot to begin and end the day. The king bed was ultra-comfy. The kitchen was just the right size. The solar heated pool was heavenly. We did not want for anything. Quite simply we loved it.We'll be back in a few years and would happily stay here again.

In summery all we can say is GO!!! you won't regret it.

Fantastic home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic fabulous place. Very quit clean and roomy. Loved the beautiful views of the sunset from the back yard. Absolutely loved the pool. Location was perfect from shopping eating and the beach. The pictures were complete accurate of the rentals appearance and amenities. The owner was extremely helpful and gave us great recommendation for local places to check out. There was a guest book in the room that was filled with notes and ideas from past guests that helped us on ideas for us while there. I recommend this beautiful place to all my friends and in fact my best friend stayed here for her honeymoon and loved it as well!!! I would and will be returing here many many more times.
