About Linda and/or Terry

We purchased our Wailea Ekolu #705 because of the great way the complex is laid out with beautiful landscaping, fantastic climate (lots of sun)and quiet area. There are 148 properties that are stepped down to the ocean with great ocean views.

Linda and/or Terry purchased this condo in 2005

Why Linda and/or Terry chose Wailea

We really like the location of our condo as it is close to some very nice top beaches; Kamaole Beach Park, Keawakapu Beach Park, Mokapu Beach, Ulua Beach, Wailea Beach, Polo beach,Makena Beach and a natural Area Reserve Ahihi-Kinau that are all just minutes away by car fro our condo. There is great snorkeling and swimming.

What makes this condo unique

During whale season you can see them from our Lanai spouting water and rising. Our ocean view is fantastic! We can see Molokini from our Lanai and watch the boats heading out to the crater. We have a wonderful walking trail that goes from our condo to the 'Wailea Shops' and from there you can use the walking path along the front of the hotels along the beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Terry & Linda,



Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us. The view is so amazing—early morning, afternoon and evening. Our kids loved being so close to the pool and they thank you for providing the body boards! We spent many mornings on the Ulua Beach and Wailea beaches using the boards and building sand castles.



We look forward to returning to your beautiful condo very soon. Next time we will just need to stay longer

Great condo with a terrific location

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at this condo in Wailea. The condo itself is beautiful and very well maintained. It's up on a hillside with a lovely view of the ocean and amazing Maui sunsets right from the lanai. It is situated within the Shops at Wailea and, more importantly to us, close to Snorkel Bob's, where we rented snorkel gear, and Lappert's, one of my favorite indulgences. The Ekolu property is covered in flowering plants and had a lovely, clean pool just steps from the condo. Linda has outfitted the place with boogie boards and some snorkel gear. The beds were super comfortable, the neighbors were quiet, the WiFi was good and the few feline visitors were polite and friendly.

I would stay here again in an instant and want to go back already!

The Cons Outweigh the Pros

  • 1 of 5

The view from the lanai is better “in person” than in the photos. The furniture is comfortable, there is lots of greenery, and you are just steps away from the pool (but it never interferes with your privacy or peacefulness). Being a ground floor unit is so nice for transferring your things from the car and the parking is close by. The downside is that you don’t always get quiet people above you.

There are comfortable recliners in the living room and in a hodge podge way, it has all that you need. The fry pans need replacing as the non-stick is gone, the knives need sharpening, and there are some things that match but mostly not.

It does have chairs, umbrellas, coolers and adult boogie boards. In my history of renting through VRBO, all units in Maui provide these.

There is usually a thoughtful welcome basket as well, but not with this unit.

The owners have done a decent job of refreshing the unit with paint and new carpet, but it could use updating. Many of the other units in this complex have been updated and aren’t that much more money. We know, we had to move during our stay.

The unit is on first sight clean, but we had to clean the overfilled moldy vacuum, a light fixture (the rest also needed cleaning) and under a rarely used window. And don’t look under the bed.

There is a mold issue in the second bedroom. Linda took immediate action to replace that AC (source of the mold, which should have been replaced years ago) and although it lessened the mold dramatically, there is still mold. And, the back beds are hard like the ones you get in Mexico.

After a week of trying to make it work out (I am allergic to mold), I was offered a refund for the remaining nights. I gladly accepted and we moved to a unit in the same complex. For $25.00 more per night, we had a better view and everything was brand new and tastefully decorated and supplied.

The already stressed vacation was made worse by the rude treatment that I received. How dare I expect an apology or compensation or consideration. I spoke politely and calmly, but Linda apparently knows how to run her business and doesn’t care what her clients think.

Owner's Response: She was the worst client. Once we found out the air conditioner had a problem we sprang into action and it was fixed within that day with the handy man working until 10:30 at night to complete the job ASAP. Brenda complained about virtually everything the entire duration of her stay, not only to us, but to the Ekolu manager too. After several days and 21 complaining texts, we asked her to leave – it was clear she would never be happy no matter what effort we made. Unfortunately for the Ekolu manager, she moved to another Ekolu unit and continued to complain to him at her new location. Our misery stopped once she left, but his torture continued. Brenda appears to be the type of person who complains about most everything, and appears to hope that she will gain some financial compensation for her “distress”. Perhaps she goes to restaurants, complains about her meal, and gets it for free. She clearly was looking for some kind of compensation or deal from us and we finally had to ask her to leave for our own sanity and paid her for the days she had coming to her. We’ve rented our condo through VRBO for 12 years and she is our first negative review and by far our worst tenant. We were never rude to her, but also refused to engage in her voluminous texts and complaints, each time responding that we had received her message and would address it. We would never rent to her again under any circumstance and feel sorry for anybody who falls into her trap and rents to her. We work hard to keep our place in good repair, as it is a second home for us. We’ve had many good experiences through the years renting to VRBO customers and almost everyone enjoys our condo and appreciates the work we put into it. Some folks come again and again. If we had more customers like her, we would sell the condo and get out of it, because she made being a landlord a complete and total miserable experience. Fortunately for us and VRBO, she is the exception instead of the rule.

GREAT CONDO

  • 5 of 5

Great family condo. Wonderful view, nice location on the first floor. Perfect for families with smaller kids. Within steps of the pool and large lawn out back for kids to play on. Only 5 min walk to shops. Lots of space with everything you could need for your stay.

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the perfect location for a Maui vacation. We stayed here for a week while our son was getting married. We shared it with another couple and had plenty of space and privacy. It was well stocked, the view from the lanai was unbelievable, and we were close to several beautiful beaches. We saw whales several times through out the week. The condo is very affordable and the owners extremely helpful and kind. They even gave us a list of activities to do in and around the area. We would definitely rent this condo again!!! LOVED this place.
