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

Perfect Condo, Perfect location
What a beautiful condo! Well equipped in every way. 2 minute walk to the main pool and beach. Quiet pool within 50 yards for a quick dip. Thank you Dan!
We had a wonderful time at the condo. We had everything we needed. We barbecued for almost every dinner sitting in the lanai and watching the sunset was breath taking. There is a pool next to us but it was a quiet pool which it's impossible to use if you have small children but the big pool which was a 5 minute walk was heated and perfect for kids. The access door to the ocean from the big pool was the icing on the cake.
The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning unit helped us sleep for a long time. Fully equipped there was nothing we did not find in the condo. The location was close to the shopping center to Kihei where you can do a lot of exploring of the island. Walking distance to restaurants. Everything was excellent.
Love the Condo, Location, and Owners!
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.
We are so happy that you and your husband enjoyed the condo and Wailea Ekahi Village. It's nice to hear that our design and furnishing selections create a luxurious accommodation for our guests. We hope you will soon return to your Wailea Ekahi 1B condo. Aloha, Dan & Tere
Beautiful updated condo
The condo is a great place to stay
We are so happy that you enjoyed 1B and your stay on Maui. We hope you will return soon to your Wailea Ekahi condo. Mahalo, Dan & Tere
Quiet corner of Ekahi w nice view of ocean. Beautifully appointed, well stocked unit.
Ekahi 1B was exactly as described and well worth the price.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Wailea Ekahi 1B. We designed our remodel and used premium materials and workmanship so our guests would enjoy their condo. We look forward to your return visit to your Maui condo. Aloha, Dan & Tere
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.
Many thanks for letting us know that you enjoyed the condo and Ekahi. We look forward to your return to your Wailea Ekahi condo. Aloha & Mahalo, Dan & Tere
