About Lynn Bensinger
We purchased this Wailea townhouse in the Ekolu complex 6 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 condominiums 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. For golfers there are 3 courses within 5 minutes.
Pool / Spa
The shower in the 2nd bathroom has no water pressure at all. It’s a nice place to stay.
We are glad you found our unit to be “convenient and a nice place to stay”.
Your comment about the water pressure in the 2nd bathroom is the first we’ve heard in the 5 and a half years of owning and renting our Maui home.
We were actually there the week before your stay and didn’t notice a problem. I checked with our current guests who followed your stay and they, too did not have an issue with water pressure in either shower. The only thing I can think of that might have caused a temporary water pressure problem is if the dishwasher, washing machine, the lower deck hose and the master shower were all in use simultaneously.
At any rate, we wish you had contacted us at the time. We have a very capable manager who would have promptly checked it out.
We take great pride in keeping our guests happy!
We hope you took some aloha and lovely memories home with you!
With every aloha,🌺
Lynn & Bill 🌴
Everything we could have imagined times ten. The condo is spacious with two levels of incredible space. Fully stocked kitchen, snorkeling gear, pool with view steps away, big lanai with remarkable view, lovely remodeled bathroom downstairs and three in total, etc....The location is ideal with so many things to do so close by. A short walk from the Shops at Waleia and beaches.
We really had the time of our lives and have already booked our next trip here! Thank you so much Lynn and Bill for sharing your paradise. You made all of this trip so easy. Can’t wait to come back next year.
We are very pleased you enjoyed our unit! and are honored to have you come again! Aloha! 🐚🥥🍍
Wonderful location, thoughtfully appointed, clean!
Lovely townhouse--so relaxing and easy to get everywhere--we appreciated how convenient it was to stay--everything we needed was there, was clean, was fun! The views are wonderful, the townhouse has plenty of space, and the owners are very responsive. The beds are comfortable, the lanai has an amazing view (and we could eat every meal there and sit for hours...), there's a pool, an easy walk or drive to shops, it was just perfect. We even made use of the washer/dryer! It has everything.
We are pleased you found our place to be comfortable, convenient and enjoyable! We love repeat guests, so do plan to come back! Thank you for your lovely review!
Lynn & Bill, Owners
Very nice place !
Property was as described, great ocean view and we enjoyed our 5 days stay very much. It was close to many beaches (especially big beach !). Very well equipped, the BBQ, washer/dryer were very much appreciated. A big thank you to the owners who allowed us to have a free late check-out ! The only suggestion we would have is to replace the 2 air conditioning units that were in the downstairs bedrooms, they are very noisy, we had trouble falling asleep, and are not placed in an ideal location (in the master bedroom closet for the first room and right next to a bed in the second room…). Overall, we would recommend this condo with no hesitation!
Glad you enjoyed our condo! We are always happy to offer early check-in and/or late check-out when it is feasible.
As for the sound & placement of the bedroom air conditioning units...you are the first to mention this. The units are very efficient at cooling the rooms and the condominium association limits where the units can be placed. Nonetheless, we are arriving soon for an extended stay in our Maui home and will have the ac units examined & serviced if needed.
Just a few concerns
The property was in a perfect location for us,view was great from top lani. The beds were very comfortable. We had everything we needed from the kitchen,except a kettle, we are tea drinkers, boiling on the stove heated up the condo. The biggest concern we had was that the air conditioning was not effective in cooling the place. The blinds in the dining room were broken and could not be closed against the sun during the day. The sliders upstairs and down were very hard to open/close, as they kept falling off the sliders. The cleaners should probably be managed a little better because we found broken shells and a broken piece of glass under the sofa.
The condo was not bad just needed a little bit more TLC.
Aloha Richard and Carol,
We appreciate your feedback and assure you each issue you brought up is being promptly and fully addressed.
This is the first concern we’ve received regarding the air conditioning. July and August reliably bring Maui’s highest temperatures. In order for the A/C to run efficiently, it is imperative that the vents below all the windows and by the upper door be securely closed.
We are in the process of ordering new dining room blinds. The current blinds aren't broken, but they can be tricky for those not accustomed to the mechanism.
We are always quick to respond to any concerns as soon as we are made aware of them. This is one reason why our ratings are so good and why we have so many repeat guests.
We have an excellent housekeeping team and a super conscientious Manager, “Dallas” who lives just a few minutes away and would’ve immediately coordinated solutions.
Once again, we do appreciate your feedback as we sincerely want things to be as comfortable as possible for our valued guests. ☺️
With every Aloha,
Lynn & Bill
Fantastic location, tons of space and amenities too numerous to describe.
We began each morning with coffee on the upper lanai and watched whales for an hour or so before heading out. Unbelievable amount of space for the price, and every conceivable beach/ water activity item you could possibly need. Bill and Lynn provided all the information we needed to prepare for our stay. Located close to the beaches, restaurants and shopping. We are looking forward to a return visit next year.
Were so glad you had a good time at our place.
We really appreciate your flexibility and patience with our guest bathroom remodel.
We would love to have you back as guests.
Mahalo for your review!
Condo village has charcoal BBQ sites overlooking the ocean and golf course. Propane BBQ on lanai
