Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Wailea Ekahi 1B for eight nights, celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary, and I can't say enough good things about the condo. The previous reviews are spot on, everything you need is right there, and it is a short walk to the beach, 300 yards, which took us less than five minutes to go from our condo to the water.

Everything that we needed, in terms of cooking utensils, the outdoor grill, the beach chairs, the cooler on wheels and the beach bag made the trip memorable. Having two full baths was a huge plus, since it gave my wife her own bath, I had mine as well. While we never used the Murphy Bed, we did pull it down to check out, and it was a full mattress and looked very comfortable. We had breakfast every day on the patio over looking the ocean, and it was wonderful. We didn't have any problems with bugs or ants like you may read in other reviews, the condo was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The booklet for the house is very helpful (wish I had read it before calling about how to lock the doors). The AC and fans were great and we had a fantastic time.

Next time we go to Maui, I can only hope this condo is available again. We'd book it in a second. One thing I would recommend would be to put a simple password on the WiFi, since it is totally open I didn't feel secure doing anything important on the wireless, not knowing who else might have been using it at the time. Again, very minor point, but overall it was fantastic!

Thanks for making our 10th wedding anniversary a complete success.

Love the Condo, Location, and Owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this Condo and location.

The condo is impressive. The custom cabinets throughout the condo are beautiful. Dan & Tere’s efforts to provide a luxury vacation experience is evident, from the well supplied Kitchen to the comfortable bed and variety of pillows. Dan's response was always quick and courteous anytime I had a question.

The property is stunningly beautiful with trees and flowers. The pool area is designed for relaxation and fun and the view of the ocean from the pool in the evening is wonderful. We’d grab our chairs from our condo every evening and sit on the beach and watch the sunset then take a dip in the pool. This location provides a long stretch of gorgeous sandy beaches to swim, snorkel or relax for the day.

Shopping at Costco on our way to the Condo was a great recommendation from Dan.

This location is perfect for exploring the gorgeous southern beaches.

We enjoyed snorkeling at Ahihi kinau natural area reserve and the CD that Dan & Tere provided in the condo was very helpful on our all day adventure to the Road to Hana.

We look forward to staying here again.

Thank you Dan & Tere.

Great property - close to the beach; we'd recommend - 4.5 stars!

  • 4 of 5

Great location – the pics don’t do the proximity to the beach justice – maybe 3 minutes, with a cooler. (it’s an easier walk TO the beach than from – the condo is up a little hill, FYI) The condo had quite a lot of amenities to make it feel like home – beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, coffeemaker, even kabob sticks for grilling shrimp, for example. The condo inside is nice -the living room furnishings could use a bit of updating (it's probably one of the only things keeping it from a 5 stars- I'd give 4.5 if I could!) but honestly it could’ve had a couch from heaven and we won’t have been on it much - if we weren’t sleeping we were outside. We even watched Sunday football on an iPad on the lanai, ha! (A small thing I’d recommend is bring a Roku or Amazon fire stick, in case you do want to watch specific TV/movies on your own time - we wished we’d brought ours or they had one available.) The condo was clean and the two ACs worked well to keep the place cool.

Parking is convenient, the landscaping is beautiful and well maintained, and the pools are nice – we used the small “quiet” pool right next to us and the main pool (which is large and has refrigerators, ice, and cold water available to fill up your bottles with!).

The beach – not a specific review of the condo itself, but good to have info nonetheless. It’s a nice beach – not all that busy. There’s both a place to walk in barefoot AND a little jut out of rocks for snorkeling (we saw turtles several days) so it feels like it's the best of both worlds. Mornings are def best. The location was good - we felt pretty close to everything we wanted to do. It’s next to some nice resorts, but if you want a tad cheaper than $18/drink, about a half a mile each way is something to eat or drink – we went north to 5 Palms for sushi happy hour and went south to the shopping area/dining (recommend MonkeyPod for happy hour too!) There’s a couple little gourmet markets as well, but upon arriving we went to Costco by the airport to stock the condo for the week – you’ll be glad you did so you have stuff stocked for the week but it's nice to know the Shops have at least kinda decent pricing for stuff you missed or if you don't want a 24 pack of something. ;)

The owners were great – communicated quickly and thoroughly. We had no problems, but there was a local person’s number available to call if we had. All in all, if we came back to the area we’d certainly stay there again – we recommend!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your Maui Wailea Ekahi 1B vacation. The living room couch is on the schedule for replacement. We will look into providing a Roku or Amazon Fire Stick. We hope your good memories will bring you back to your Ekahi 1B condo in the future. Thanks for the good review. We will try to earn the additional 1/2 star before your return so we can maintain our 5 star rating. Aloha & mahalo, Dan & Tere

About Dan & Tere McKenna

We have been traveling to Maui since the mid-90's and since retiring in 2007 we have spent a lot of time enjoying Maui. We bought 1B in 1999 and 1A next door (VRBO# 622244) in 2005. We know a lot about Maui and hope to share our suggestions to make your visit a most enjoyable one. We have hosted groups of our family in 1A & 1B and found places and activities for a wide variety of interests and ages.

Dan & Tere McKenna purchased this condo in 1999

Why Dan & Tere McKenna chose Wailea

We think Wailea is the best location on Maui and that Ekahi Village provides the best oceanfront facilities for the price. The ocean front pool and pavilion provides refrigerators, microwaves, stoves and ovens, an industrial ice maker, ice and chilled water dispenser and large charcoal grill. Ekahi is a friendly property and the sunset cocktail banter among guests is about best beaches, restaurants and golf.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is across the driveway from a 'Quiet' pool, ideal for reading. Building 1 is away from the streets and enjoys the sound of the ocean - not traffic. The 1st floor makes it easier to bring in luggage. beach gear or shopping bags and provides a larger lanai area for whale, boat or ocean watching. Having our Unit 1A (VRBO# 622244) next door makes them ideal for family get aways in paradise
