Personal touches for your enjoyment and convenience. This unit is a 2,000-square-foot townhouse, occupying both the lower and upper floors of a two-story building. The bedrooms and laundry are on the lower level and the living area occupies the upper level which also provides a spectacular ocean view.

The condominium is about 1500 feet from the beach, a 15-minute walk. Private parking is located right at the condominium entrance and there is adequate public parking at all five of the great Wailea Beach areas if you prefer to drive and take beach chairs, beach toys, snorkel equipment, and towels (all provided) and a picnic rather than walk to the beach. Want a boogie board too? They are available at the condo. Wailea, located on the South and lee side of Maui, is 1,450 acres of relaxed and uncrowded beaches, shops, restaurants, tennis and golf snuggled into Maui's greenery. 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. There is more entertainment at Wailea Shopping Village, an open, airy setting for shops and restaurants. Keywords: Condominium

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 Wailea

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.

Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay! The location was absolutely perfect with access to all activities....shopping, beaches, snorkeling, pool, views, restaurants.....We felt so at home as Lynn has thought of EVERY possible need and detail! The condo is very spacious with an incredible view on the lanai, my new favorite coffee spot. I didn't want to leave I was so relaxed.

The kitchen was very well equipped and we made good use of it with preparing meals like we were home. The bedrooms were huge with great closet space and a delightfully serene patio. Having a washer/ dryer was quite convenient. Lynn and Bill are gracious and made the transaction easy. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home in paradise!

A Classic Hawaiian Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I was charmed the moment I arrived at this cozy, spacious condo! My first impression was that the feel and finishes hearkened back to classic vintage Hawaii, with the vaulted ceilings and breezy open rooms. I felt perfectly at home with the comfortable and unpretentious decor and loved the artistic touches!

The condo is HUGE and felt in size more like my home than a vacation accommodation. There is more than enough room for two couples or a good sized family, and the price is VERY reasonable.

We easily walked from the condo to the gorgeous nearby beaches and shopping. And after a long day, I enjoyed the pool--which was steps from the condo and so under-utilized by others in the complex that it felt private.

I plan to pass the word among my friends. It was perfect for us.

Wonderul Family Retreat

  • 4 of 5

A perfect get away for us all. A linen closet with an abundance of towels, comfortable beds and a kitchen well stocked for cooking. Close to one of the complex's beautiful pools and easy parking to access the unit. Filled with books, games and a beach bag full of toys for our grandsons. Boogie boards, masks and fins and beach chairs for the grown-ups and kids too. Beautiful view off the lanai and close to a wonderful market place for dinning and shopping and a dive shop in close proximity. A wonderful personal book that provided super beach locations and other suggestions for dinning. A Safeway market within a short driving distance was very convenient. Truly enjoyed our vacation in Maui.

Already planning our return viait

  • 5 of 5

This stay exceeded all of our expectations. From the grill, the snorkeling equipment to the decks off each floor this place was reasonaably priced, in a great location and within hours it felt like home. Don't normally gush like this but my wife and I are recommending it to our friends. The owners answered all of our questions and we're easy to work with.

Great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved this townhouse. Our family traveled to Maui with a 8-month old baby and this was the only townhouse we found that had amenities for a baby. The view from the second floor lanai was awesome -- we had breakfast on the lanai every morning because of the clear view of Molokini. We could sit out on the lanai for hours just enjoying this incredible view. The location was perfect -- this is an end unit which was very private and we never heard the neighbors. The Shops at Wailea are a ~10 minute walk down the street (so convenient). The pool is just around the corner from this unit. The kitchen had all the amenities we needed (coffeemaker, toaster, blender, various sizes of pots and pans, and much more). The living room upstairs had plenty of room for all of us. The two bedrooms downstairs were spacious and we had plenty of room to "hang out" there as well. Overall we had a wonderful vacation at a beautiful location in Wailea.

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
