About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

1200 square foot 2 level luxury townhouse unit 25A with quiet neighbor on only one side. Located in lushly landscaped mature complex directly above Keawakapu Beach which is a long sandy lightly used public beach featuring coral reef with excellent snorkeling. Beach is shared by neighboring multi-million dollar private homes and not heavily used because of very limited public parking. Many smaller nearby beaches fronting luxury hotels like the 4 Seasons are linked to it by a wooden walkway allowing car free access to spas, restaurants and other hotel based amenities.

Although the unit does not have an ocean view, the gentle walk to main ocean front swimming pool and adjacent beach is short (about 5 minutes). Unit has easy ground floor entry from ample free parking. Features 3 lanais--one very sunny with privacy wall, the upstairs lanai directly adjoins bedroom with lush tropical foliage screened view of West Maui Mountains.

Kitchen is unusually well equipped including blender, toaster oven, disposal, electric oven/range, dishwasher, glassware, serving trays etc. Beautifully decorated with custom photos of local sights.

Location of complex is unique in that it is between Wailea which features expensive/exclusive restaurants, shops, golf courses, beaches and Kihei which has less expensive restaurants, nightlife, recreational equipment rental etc. You can be as upscale or practical as you wish.

Main attraction is the beauty and tranquility of the unit and complex. Ekahi Village offers unique serenity with ideal beach location, low density of units and mature well maintained tropical grounds. Ekahi is Hawaiian for first and was first condominium complex sited in the exclusive, well planned Wailea community.

Once your rental is confirmed I'll connect you with a local manager on island

About james schwanke

Mature pediatrician living in San Francisco with wife and 2 teenage daughters.

james schwanke purchased this condo in 2008

Why james schwanke chose Wailea

I purchased this townhouse unit after more than 12 trips to Maui because it offers the most relaxed setting close to great snorkeling and has easy access to rest of island including airport, central Maui, roads to Hana and upcountry.(unlike west Maui which is cutoff by a long narrow drive to reach from airport/central Maui). I particularly enjoy the choice of walking to good snorkeling beach, driving a short distance to many other excellent South Maui beaches, or quick access to Wailea's high end shopping, restaurants, music, hotel spas and equally easy access to affordable groceries and restaurants in nearby Kihei.

What makes this condo unique

Tenants get discounts at nearby golf courses and walking access to my favorite beach (long, uncrowded with turtles and fishing swimming in the coral just offshore)

Convenient location, nice quiet complex, has everything needed for a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

If you don't mind the "not-modern-look", this unit is it. It's clean, spacious for a family of three (2 adults & 1 kid) and worths every penny. Another relative member who was going with us stopped by to check the unit out also said she will definitely want to rent this unit next time going to Maui. Internet was fast. TV had so many channels.Thanks James and Simone for very responsive to my inquries. We had a good time and didn't want to leave that soon! (We stayed a week).

Brilliant stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay here. Fantastic, very spacious condo over 2 levels, which has everything you need. The place keeps cool at night with air con, and although a very large centipede was encountered on our last evening inside, we had no issues with other bugs, including mosquitoes! There are three lovely outdoor spaces - front and back terraces and an upstairs balcony. One slightly disappointing thing, which doesnt seem to have been mentioned in previous reviews, is that the view from the outside areas aren't that great. The balcony overlooks a large tree and open green space, but then its onto a (pretty busy) road. You cant hear the road when doors are closed but it was a bit of a shame considering what other condos in this complex would have as views! Not something to put you off, but something to be aware of, and may explain why this condo is much better value than others on this complex.

This is in a great location - 5 minute walk to a brilliant beach for swimming and multiple snorkeling opportunities (20 minute walk along the beach to Ulua - especially fab snorkeling). The condo is also a good base for exploring Maui (will definitely need a car) - would recommend a day exploring Haleakala. Also spent a day just driving along the southwest coast and popping in and out of the sea - so many places to snorkel here! Unfortunately the surf was high when we were on Maui so the water not as calm as expected, but still had a great time and visibility good enough. Would thoroughly recommend this condo!

Ekahi Village, Hawaiian for "perfect vacation"

  • 5 of 5

Three-minute walk to arguably the best swimming/snorkeling/sunning beach on earth, five-minute drive to the Kihei strip, comfortable, quiet, and stocked with every possible thing you could need to have a carefree, relaxing vacation. Hands down the best place I've ever stayed in Maui.

Good Condo for Couple

  • 3 of 5

Good location and convenient to adult smaller pool. The main pool location is about

a 10 minute walk. Unfortunately, no hot tub.

The unit is roomy with an upstairs BR. Hasn't had any remodel but very clean

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay Hot Tub not a feature of Ekahi Village--more often a hotel option Main virtue of unit is spacious quiet comfort with short walk to the beach
