Good location but details matter

  • 2 of 5

Positives-1.Wailea location..close to nice hotels and public beach. 2.Bathrooms nicely updated,

low flow toilets could use a better plunger as these type toilets can block up easily. One there was marginal3.Quiet older condo complex, not gated but seemed safe to me. 4.Landscaping was well maintained. 5. Pool is small but maintained well-can not expect a resort pool 6. Lots of beach supplies-chairs, boards, towels, etc

Negatives-1. Lack of central air..It was in the 90's the days we were there and the winds were

almost not there. Thus opening the sliding doors and windows got no air movement. Even with fans full blast --hot and miserable. Window units in bedrooms barely able to keep up.

2. Wife and daughter found mouse scat on couch and in kitchen cabinet..after that they never

tusted anything in the kitchen. Colored their entire view of the place. 3. Used food in the frig

--expired eggs, used mayo jar in frig, open cherrios box in box in cabinet..A few sealed waters and sodas beers..OK. Maybe unopened is safe but still a little too much sharing economy.

4.Freezer full of stuff..not sure if we were supposed to use but gave my wife impression someone was living there and left in a hurry as we came--again maybe a little to much sharing. 5. Open supplies in master bathroom vanity..no scripts I grant you but probably better stored in owner's closet, 6. Called cleaning person a couple of times. never got a callback. Granted unit phone occasionally lost dial tone but with everyone cellular these days

should not be a issue for callbacks. 7. Furniture except for wall flat screen seems dated and tired. Access to Netflix was a positive but cable box not real useful. Wife felt bedding was subpar-granted an opinion. 8. Insects are probably a given on a ground floor unit in Hawaii and you do have those lizards there as natural predators. Had to kill a few small roaches but this bothered the females in the group more, after the mouse scat finding they were hyper vigilant

In retrospect the lack of AC was critical in living areas and the mouse scat colored the view of the place cleaning wise

which left me as the one who made the choice in hot water. A little too much of the sharing

economy in the frig/freezer and bathroom. This sadly made the vacation in a argument instead of a enjoyable experience.

Owner's Response: 1 We spend four months a year there for the last seven years and have not needed air conditioning once. The fans in the rooms have always been fine. 2 The strata tries to control insects and rodents and we have set traps but when the temperature goes up they seem to come down from the hill. We do what we can to prevent this but I agree it is not 100% possible. 3 We have had nothing but thank yous for the things left in the fridge. People do not want to buy condiments when they are there for a week and we find no reason to throw out perfectly good food. 4 Freezer is full and you can use what you like. You booked VRBO Vacation Rental By Owner. would you like everything thrown out everytime we leave the place. 5 Once again this is a vacation home. I do not think there is anything in the medicine cabinet that would be offensive and some of it people use items such as tylenol, bandaids, q tips and soaps. 6 I am sorry you could not get a hold of our cleaner this has never been a problem, and it may be why you had these issues. It was to bad you never tried to contact us, we may have been able to help you. 7 There is cable and netflix. We just bought new bedding for one of the bedrooms three month ago and if you think the other bedroom needs upgrading we will take a look at it. There is also lots of sheets in the bedrooms. 8 There are insects in Hawaii and most places tropical people vacation. We do have all the units in the complex sprayed every month. I am sorry you had problems. I think our unit is a wonderful place and so do a lot of other people as you can see from our past reviews. We are very reasonable on our price and have many guest return multiple times. This is a home and we try to make it feel that way. If you do not like the food we offer and the small pool there are other hotel in Wailea for a 1000.00 a night for a two bedroom. I will take your suggestions and look at ways of improving but some of them I get to much compliments for to change. Aloha

Great Wailea Location

  • 4 of 5

Having my Father own property less than five minutes away, we needed a comfortable, clean, centrally located property, close to all that Wailea and Kihei has to offer. You are walking distance from the "Shops at Wailea", where there are restaurants, and every kind of shop, ranging from the very high end, to a couple of surf shops. You are a couple minutes drive to the beach, or a nice 15 minute walk. Each night when we stayed in, usually bbq'ing, we would watch the sunset from our lanai. There are two pools to choose from in the Ekolu complex, one literally outside your back door. When a minor problem arose, Rick was on it, and I never gave it a second thought. We were thankful to find a condo that fit our family of four so well!

Our little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for fantastic views and relaxing location then this is the place.

A short walking distance to beaches, shopping and restaurants this condo has all the amenities of a home away from home. This will most definitely become our "go to place" when in Maui. We will be back

Best Ekolu Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this Condo and will definitely be the first on our list when we come back to Maui.

One of the best views you could ask for the fantastic Lanai is where you want to spend a lot of time. The pictures are great but much nicer in person. The Condo is fully stocked and we really appreciate all the beach equipment . Had relatives stay at another Ekolu unit and they had almost no beach gear as they had to rent chairs. Super location as right by one of the pools and the Wifi even reached there. Really quiet location as you will enjoy the comfortable beds. Within walking distance of many really good restaurants and amazing nearby beaches just a few minutes away. Many thanks to the owners and special thanks to their daughter who makes the process super easy and is always quick to respond to e-mails. Always sad to leave but can't wait to get back. Thanks for sharing your Condo.

Wonderful condo - we'll be back!!

  • 5 of 5

We are fortunate that we have stayed in many vacation rentals. This condo will stay on our "must come back to" list. Since you have to start somewhere, we would start with the view from the lanai! Whether you are sitting around the comfortable high table having dinner, a beverage or reading - or you are relaxing on the lounge chair, you will spend a lot of time on the lanai soaking up the great view. The unit is well furnished and very well stocked. We thoroughly enjoyed working with owners on payment schedule, questions that we had, etc. They are not only professional, courteous and quick to respond, they are nice people. They make the process so easy and comfortable for you. The listing photos were accurate, the property is well maintained and clean. Without hesitation, we would recommend this unit, this location to anyone. We will be back!

Found Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Condo exceeded our expectations as did Wailea! We haven't done much travelling and were sceptical in using VRBO. We found paradise and can't wait to return! The condo was just as advertized and more. We really appreciated ALL the beach equipment that was there for us to use. My husband used the electric grill on the lanai to cook all our dinners. The nearby beaches were amazing and easy to get to. The refreshing island breezes allowed us to enjoy ourselves without turning on the AC. We are grateful to the owners for sharing their condo. We hope to to return again next year!
