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!

Nicely decorated condo
Ekolu 107 is a great place to stay. The condo has been tastefully decorated in Hawaiian bark clothe and quilts. The newly redone kitchen has beautiful and plentiful cabinets------nice dishes, pots and pans, and small appliances------everything works! The king size bed is very comfortable. The trundle in the living room would be good for children. I would not recommend this condo for two couples, however. Although construction (building more shopping) is going on nearby, it starts around 8am and is over by 5pm. The view is not impacted.
Very nice. Great location. Seems isolated but just off the main road.
Very quaint and comfortable. The only issue was the construction going on just below our condo. Nothing is nicer than having some good Kona coffee in the morning on your lanai and watching the whales. Looking past that we had a great time.
Great Ocean View Condo!
Owner was wonderful to work with. We loved the condo and would stay here again.
Great view, great location, perfect size
This was a great condo: quiet, clean, and the right size for my wife and me. It's walking distance to a high end mall and a short drive or medium walk to the beach and fancy hotel lobbies and shops. If you're looking to relax and watch the sunset from your lanai with a view of a couple of islands and the north part of Maui, look no further. We had no problems getting in, parking, paying--everything was easy. A great find without breaking the bank.
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.
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!
Ekolu 107 is within walking distance (or a short drive) to Wailea's 5 famous beaches. Enjoy boogie boarding, swimming with sea turtles, snorkeling, or lounging on the sand with a good book. Surfing lessons are available in nearby Kihei.
