The condo is a 15-minute walk (about 1500 feet) from the beach; but most people drive their car as there is free public parking at the beaches.

About Lesli Brodbeck

Aloha! My name is Lesli Brodbeck; to my hula sisters I am Maluhia (actually Maluhia'oke'ahi'ahi, or 'Peaceful Evening'). Together with my husband Kelly I own Ekolu 107. Although I currently live in Santa Barbara, I continue to dance Hula with my local halau. In his free time my husband designs gardens, explores photograpy, and enjoys scuba diving. When I'm not dancing, swimming, or busy with an art project I can be found with our two teenagers at water polo or volleyball tournaments, as well as dive meets. Our family is completed by 3 kitties (Nani, Polo, & Hiwakea Kiko) and a pond full of koi.

Lesli Brodbeck purchased this condo in 2003

Why Lesli Brodbeck chose Wailea

My family moved to Maui in the 1970's, when there was only one stoplight on the island. I grew up visiting them, talking story and learning about their condo rentals. I earned pocket money during summer vacations by 'cleaning condo'. During the time that my family lived in Wailea I fell in love with Ekolu Village. I remember my Auntie telling time by the boats heading to Molokini and the United Airlines flights overhead ('It must be 11:15, that's the flight from San Francisco'). I dreamed that someday I would own my own Ekolu condo and follow in their footsteps. And now Ekolu 107 is my home away from home!

What makes this condo unique

When my family and I stay at Ekolu 107 we live local. I shop the farmer's markets and my husband shops the local nursery. We even went to Kihei Ace Hardware on our 20th anniversary! We spend as much time as possible with my family Upcountry. The kids love exploring the rainforest and diving into local lava pools. My husband and I enjoy a nice glass of wine and talking story with the adults. For special outings we go zip lining on Haleakala and snorkeling at La Perouse Bay. I'm just as happy to shop the container stores (local entrepreneurs travel to Indonesia, load a shipping container with items, & open their warehouse doors when the container arrives on Maui) with my cousin Liz or spend a leisurely morning at Maui Friends of the Library in Puunene (suggested donation: 10 cents per book). In the evenings you may find me at line dancing or a ballroom dance class with Liz, or we may go as a family to see Cousin Jimmy drumming with one of his bands (Uncle Dirty, Haiku Hillbillies, Benoit Jazz Works). There is so much to do on Maui and I never seem to have time for it all!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved spending our vacation at Ekolu 107. The condo is just lovely and well situated. We never tired of looking at the flowers and other landscaping. The view of Kaho'olawe and Molokini is wonderful and so are the colors of the sky at sunset. The lanai furniture is the nicest we have seen. We liked being within walking distance to several restaurants and the walk along the beach below is very nice. We had everything we needed to make our vacation comfortable and enjoyable

Outstanding View.

  • 4 of 5

The view of the ocean, sunsets, and beautiful landscapes was excellent. Maui weather was perfect every day as usual. The unit was comfortable, but needed some TLC maintenance. (Cold faucet in bedroom was coming apart, so we didn't use the cold water in that sink. The toilet in the bedroom bath had a bad flapper, so we used the toilet in the other bathroom. Unit needed more lighting in the living room, and bedroom.) All in all however, it was a pleasant place to stay, at a reasonable price.

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Lesli's condo could not have been more perfect. My husband and I spent 5 nights at Wailea Ekolu #107 and there was everything we needed for a most pleasant stay. The view was beautiful, the condo very clean, quiet and private, and the added convenience of a washer and dryer, most appreciated when trying to keep our packing to a minimum. A previous review mentioned an issue with the stove. Although I am use to cooking on a gas range, in my opinion, the stove worked as expected for electric. We enjoy cooking (even on vacation) and found the kitchen very well stocked for our needs.

The location was very convenient to several of Maui's finest beaches (our favorite was Ulua, great for swimming, body surfing and snorkeling) and many fine restaurants.

Lesli was very prompt in responding to our initial reservation as well as all inquiries prior to our arrival. We would definitely recommend staying here on your next visit to Maui!

Many thanks to Lesli for sharing her Maui home with us!

We had a wonderful stay at Lesli's condo. The views are spectacular and the location can't be beat - walking distance to shops & a 5 min drive to great eateries (Monkey Pod & Fabiani's). Safeways is approx. a 10-15 min drive too. The condo itself is decorated beautifully and has everything you need to enjoy & relax. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is you can hear some noise from the main road from the patio & the rain shower heads spread out so much that it's hard to rinse off. However, having a washer/dryer to use was a HUGE bonus.

My daughter stayed at the Grand Wailea and, yes, it's beautiful but she came to the condo and said she would have preferred to stay at Lesli's. I couldn't have agreed more. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Thank you for a wonderful home away from home.

Great view, great location

  • 4 of 5

Very nice. If you are unlike us and go to relax on the couch and watch TV, this isn't the place for you. It could use a little cash put into it, as we found the dishwasher didn't perform well, and the cooktop was hit n miss for functionality. If you're a cook, bring your own nonstick pan and sharp knife.

Thank you for the space we enjoyed it!!

Owner's Response: I truly appreciate hearing about my guest's experience. Since I don't live on the island I need to know when something needs to be addressed. I trust my guests to tell me what I need to know between my visits to the condo. When I'm next on Maui it looks like I'll be shopping for knives and pans! And I'll work with my property manager to have someone in to look at the dishwasher. Mahalo, L.

New Years Eve Stay

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at the newly updated Unit 107. The unit was clean and provided everything needed for our week long stay. The patio landscaping is beautiful and the central location to beaches, shopping and restaurants is perfect. The only issues were that the shower heads look designer but are not very good with water pressure. Being on the ground floor, there was also a small ant issue in the master vanity area. When we called management, they provided us messy ant traps that didn't work. Overall, we would stay here again and have no problem recommending this unit.

If you want to stay in a beautiful condo with a private lanai, unending views of Molokini, the Pacific Ocean and with gorgeous beaches. This condo has it all! It is so quiet and private yet close to so many places to eat, shop, play, explore and visit. The way that Leslie has decorated her unit is very lovely and inviting. As soon as we walked in we felt welcomed and right at home. We stayed there this last December for the first time and have already booked for December 2016! The community of Wailea is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. This is totally paradise!! We also want to thank Lesli for being such a pleasure to work with and helping us create a stress free, unforgettable vacation. We will always recommend this condo to anyone who is visiting Maui. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else ourselves. We have found our Maui "home away from home"!
