About the property

Perfect Hawaiian-decor Condo With Large Lanai, Only 2 Minute walk to beach

Ekahi 1Bd/2Ba 20b is a spacious, professionally decorated condo in the LOWER VILLAGE of Ekahi, at the bottom of the hill and closest to the beach. In fact it's only a 2 minute walk to world renowned Keawakapu beach! And because the walk path is nearly level, you avoid hiking up the hill after being at the beach all day -- as you might in other locations in Ekahi.

One of the largest 1 bd/2 ba condos (1180 sq. Ft. In ekahi), it's fully furnished and completely remodeled with beautiful hardwood floors, Hawaiian-styled furniture and colorful local art. Enjoy two, connected lanais that face a private garden, and peek-boo ocean views through swaying palms.

Being so close to the beach, you'll be lulled to sleep at night by the sound of waves and fall asleep in our comfortable new king sized bed. In addition, the new queen sofabed provides extra room for children or guests. And the second bath means plenty of privacy for everyone. The unit accommodates 4. There are no additional charges for extra guests or cleaning fees that some owners charge.

The condo's ground floor location provides easy access for unpacking the car or stocking up on groceries. We even offer Hawaiian cds for your listening pleasure to set the perfect tone.

Freshly painted, the unit sports recessed lighting and new hardwood and tile floors. Our condo is outfitted with a new propane gas BBQ w/ 5 burners, two large air conditioners and ceiling fans, internet access and free wi-fi, two new LED tvs, free Netfix, a new queen sofa bed, remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances, large washer/dryer and a desk and chair if you need to do a little work. The bathrooms are completely remodeled with granite counter tops, Italian tile, a rainforest shower in the master for a tropical treat, plus large closets and changing rooms. In addition, we have lots of beach equipment (chairs and umbrella, boogie board, snorkeling equipment, toys) and cushioned lounge furniture.

Ekahi village is one of only four oceanfront condo complexes in Wailea, Maui. The pool and pavilion are on the beach so you get a front row seat to breaching whales in the winter and breath-taking sunsets any time of the year. Ekahi is a low rise condo complex of 54 buildings, covering 34 acres on a sloped hill , with walking paths, and lush, tropical flowers and foliage throughout. Besides the main pool, there are 3 quiet pools in the complex (one of them just behind 20b).

Our guests qualify for Wailea resort guest golf discounts at all the Wailea golf courses. Plus, you'll enjoy a discount at Elleair golf course in Kihei (just tell them you're staying at Wailea Ekahi)

About Kathi Wahed, Hawaii Tax ID: W30305160-01

I'm a military brat (Air Force) who grew up living in many places around the world, including going to a DOD high school in Germany. I now live in Moraga, CA, a small hamlet in the East Bay of San Francisco. I'm retired and play lots of tennis, hike, swim, travel, read, write and enjoy my 4 granddaughters and cat, Josie!

Kathi Wahed, Hawaii Tax ID: W30305160-01 purchased this condo in 1999

Why Kathi Wahed, Hawaii Tax ID: W30305160-01 chose South Maui

My husband and I had been visiting Hawaii for many years. In fact, we were married in Poipui Beach, Kuaui. We discovered Wailea in Maui and returned every winter because of the reliable weather and fantastic golf. When we discovered Ekahi 20B was for sale we decided to buy our piece of paradise. It was a dream come true. I love swimming in the ocean, playing tennis with a great group of Maui locals, and walking the oceanfront promenade in Wailea. I never tire of the sound of the waves, the steady hum of bird chatter and the gentle Maui breeze.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the open, roomy feeling of the condo, the large double lanai, the lush lawn and bougainvillea hedge, the sound of the waves at night, the short walk to the beach and pool and the scent of plumeria from the trees nearby. What's not to love!

Guestbook comments from the owner

4 of 5 stars

My wife and I had the most enjoyable vacation. The condo had everything we needed to live very comfortably for 10 days. We appreciated the beach chairs, coolers and umbrella, we were close enough to the beach to be able to carry all that stuff easily. We explored other beaches and by the end of our stay decided that 'our' beach was as good as any. I would highly recommend this condo.

A garden paradise close to the ocean & pool

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated condo was comfortable yet beach-elegant. It definitely had a feel of being someone's home vs. a perpetual rental. There were notes about taking off shoes and being careful not to stain area rugs. Remember to bring some socks to walk around in. I'd say it's not a place to have young children and spills. The location in the development is really desirable. It is one of the closest units to the ocean (altho' you get just a peek thru' the trees the grounds are very beautifully maintained). The quiet pools in the development were not heated but a great place for adults to lay out and read. The community pool allows children, is heated, and overlooks the beach. There is lots of shade and fabulous breezes around the pool. The location in Kehei is so convenient to the Wailea Shops & restaurants and hotel/resorts to the south and to a more neighborhood vibe just to the north. The pop up cabana, chairs, goggles, and boogie boards in the closet were terrific and helped make our beach experience complete. Tip: get to the beach early in the day as the wind picks up around noon...or at least it did in mid October every day. Thank you Kathi for offering your beautiful piece of paradise and being so easy to work with.

Beautiful condo and property!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully decorated and maintained. Staying in this condo was a great value versus staying at a resort with hefty resort fees. The location is convenient to many areas on the island. Waliea is a beautiful part of the island. The condo property is peaceful, quiet and lush with gorgeous rolling grounds, and beautiful pools. The first floor entrance and close parking made it very easy to get in and out of the condo, run out for food, etc. This condo would be great for a couple, or family with 1-2 young kids or teenagers. If you have rambunctious children, it may be stressful to stay here and worry about any of the beautiful Hawaiian decorations getting broken. It is a walk to the main pool and beach, so we found ourselves driving our 5 year old and all her beach stuff to the beach parking that is very nearby so we didn't have to carry things on the long walk. The bed is very comfortable and the bathrooms are large and beautiful as well. It was very helpful having in-unit laundry and access to the beach gear stored on the patio - which we would have had to rent. The beach is a great beach to walk along and snorkel in. We saw a turtle swimming along the beach there as well.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm happy you enjoyed my condo. I love it! I find the 2 minute walk to beach and pool pretty easy but with a 5 year old in tow and beach paraphernalia to carry, it is convenient to have the public parking lot so close. Until your next visit -- Aloha, Kathi

Peaceful, relaxing with easy access to shopping, dining and the beach

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed and sparkling clean! Private lanai was amazing for morning coffee. It was great to be able to do laundry mid-trip! We used the provided beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and toys daily--what an added bonus!! Kathi was always easy to work with, super helpful and provided us with a ton of useful information. We would LOVE to to stay here again and would highly recommend it.

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We had absolutely fantastic time. The whole residence is lovely, well maintained, clean and just minutes walk from the beach. The condo itself is extremely nice, clean, functional and decorated with taste.

The closest beach is one of the most beautiful beaches that we have seen. You feel like in the blessed spot of the world! We highly recommend and certainly we will be back there.

South Maui is known for its beauty and reliable weather. Unlike other parts of the island, your vacation isn't likely to be ruined by rain in the winter if you stay in south Maui.

Wailea is a luxury resort community with 3 top-rated golf courses, a large tennis complex, a wide range of gourmet restaurants, a high end shopping center and miles and miles of gorgeous white sand beaches. The town of Kihei is just next door with larger grocery stores, shopping centers, local music, ethnic restaurants and a fun, down home beach town feel.

You can relax and do nothing, or swim, snorkel, surf or paddle board. Treat yourself to 5 star restaurants or pick up a fish taco at a local take-out. Sit by the pool at night and star gaze or go dancing at a nearby hot spot. Go sightseeing around the island or take a nap on the lanai. It's your vacation. Do what suits you. Just rest assured Maui has everything a vacation-goer could want.

Wailea is approximately 30 minutes from Kahului airport.
