Surrounding the three championship Wailea golf courses is a distinctive community of condominium villages and luxury hotels. Eleven courts help make the Wailea Tennis Club Hawaii's most complete facility. Wailea also offers a series of five crescent white sand beaches which are strung along a mile and a half of coastline. A myriad of water activities are available including swimming, snorkeling, wind-surfing, sailing and excursions to Molokini, a submerged volcano that is home to thousands of tropical fish. The resort's dining spots range from sun-drenched snack bars to award-winning fine dining restaurants.

About Lynn Bensinger

We purchased this Wailea townhouse in the Ekolu complex 4 years ago. We are both professionals and our main residence is in Seattle on the shore of Lake Washington. We enjoy aviation, boating, swimming, scuba diving, travel, reading and just bobbing in the warm blue waters off of our favorite Wailea beaches! We have been in love with Maui for over 25 years.

Lynn Bensinger purchased this condo in 2012

Why Lynn Bensinger chose South Maui

We have explored pretty much every beach on Maui and choose Wailea because we consider the beaches the best on the Island. We like to scuba dive Molokini Crater and appreciate seeing it in the distance from our balcony. Wailea is beautiful and manicured with beautiful trees, tropical landscapes, expanses of green and several golf courses. Wailea is up-scale and less dense in terms of buildings/crowds and commercialism, than other areas.

What makes this condo unique

The lovely panoramic view of the ocean and the proximity/accessability of Maui's best beaches, restaurants and shopping is what we love about our Wailea condo. The privacy, ample front door parking and the wonderful swimming pool are other perks. We have stayed in many Maui condomeniums over the years. This townhouse is unique in that it is unusually spacious and airy with lovely vaulted ceilings and huge lanais. This is a great place for families with children or extended families. Guests who are golfers get discounts at adjacent golf course.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing your condo! It is very comfortable and met our needs. We had a great time! We’ve gone to Kona the last five years and decided to come back to Maui this year. All of our previous visits to Maui have been at the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach so staying in Wailea was a big change. We spent some happy hours at Five Palms at the very south end of Kihei. Very nice and on the beach. Also had a fabulous dinner at Sarento’s. Ate at Monkeypod & would skip. Had great lunches at Tommy Bahamas and Longis.

Great location, view and lovely, spacious place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Wailea is arguably the best spot on Maui; great beaches, shops and restaurants. The Ekolu complex is centrally located in Wailea. 710 is spacious and well appointed. The kitchen has all the amenities we needed Great view from the Lanai. Owners were easy to deal with and very straightforward. Looking forward to coming back next year

Great location but needs some updating

  • 3 of 5

Loved the proximity to Wailea beach, the Shops at Wailea and having the spacious lanai for dining. The bit of ocean view was a nice bonus. Air conditioning made for comfortable sleeping. Bathrooms are very dated and in need of renovating. A few updates and this could be a fabulous property.

Owner's Response: Aloha, We are pleased you had a good Maui vacation and that features of our condo enhanced your stay. We are committed to keeping our rental rates within 'bargain range' to assure families with children and those with modest incomes can enjoy the upscale Wailea area with its lovely landscape and proximity to the best Maui beaches. We are in the process of rennovating our unit on a schedule of priorities and have made many upgrades to date. Of course, our guests' feedback is taken into account. We consider our Maui condo to be our home in paradise as we have extended stays 2-4 times per year. Having searched for 5 years to find a place to suit our tastes, We love the relaxed local 'Aloha' feel of our abode and prefer it to the modern, granite-encrusted spaces one can find anywhere in the world. We have a number of repeat guests who are fans of our conveniently located, clean, spacious & well appointed, ecologically friendly Maui home. Mahalo for your input

Perfect quiet location, Spacious townhouse- perfect for 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

What a great accommodation! The owners were so helpful in answering all of our questions before arrival. The rooms were huge and great for set up of cribs and playpens. The AC in the rooms helped so much also! The living area upstairs was a great size and the view from the lanai was breathtaking! Overall we would definitely stay here again!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special unit. We are a young family travelling with a baby and the two levels of the town home were perfect to be able to have the baby sleep soundly during naps and early bedtime. It was also perfect considering the unit is right by the pool making it easy to get to and from with all the gear that comes with a baby!

We have stayed at Ekolu before so we were familiar with the location but our friends who stayed in another unit close by were blown away. Close to the great beaches, hotels and Wailea boardwalk without any of the crowds. There were days that we were the only people at the pool! No need to go down at 8am to reserve a chair like you have to do at many of the hotels.

Lynn & Bill were awesome to deal with. They gave us an extended check out on the house as they did not have people checking in the next day which was so appreciated. The condo has everything you need from beach umbrellas, to coolers, to boogie boards and snorkel gear. For the baby, it had sand toys, a play gym and a pack and play.

In regards to restaurants, Happy Hour at Gannons and Monkeypod were highlights and dinner at The Mill Plantation was amazing.

Would definitely stay here again!
