Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This is what a vacation in Maui is all about! Wailea's Ekahi Village is a 33-acre luxury "low rise" condominium complex. Unit #6-A is a ground-floor, corner unit in Ekahi's lower village that was recently and totally renovated (Nov 2014) - from top to bottom!

Location is key in Ekahi, and #6-A is in truly prime; extremely close to the main pool and beach, on the flatest part of the property. (Buildings located in the upper village require a walk up a fairly healthy hill - made more difficult with kids and beach/pool gear.) The unit is an easy 50 yard, flat walk to the heated, oceanfront pool and sandy Keawakapu Beach - one of the most beautiful on Maui. In this rental you will be as far away as possible from any traffic noise, and the pool, beachfront and local boardwalk are right outside your door.

Unit 6A is a privately owned unit - we've had a full calendar since we bought in 2006, and we're proud to welcome many repeat guests. We recently completed a total remodel project (Nov 2014) that included all new kitchen and bathroom alder cabinetry, beautiful granite countertops and tile flooring in the kitchen and both bathrooms, gorgeous walk-in showers with glass doors and pebble tile shower floors, kitchen appliances, new A/C units in both the Master bedroom and LR, updated lighting throughout the condo, comfortable and durable furniture and beautiful tropical window coverings, new linens throughout and updated decor. The condo also features updated electronics (HD flat screens & BlueRay players) and an iPod stereo connection. For extra sleeping space we have a new double-size sleeper sofa as well as a double-size Murphy Bed, plus an extra large private lanai perfect for grilling your dinner and enjoying a cocktail - it opens to flat grassy area - perfect for kids to stretch their legs. The kitchen is open, fully-equipped and boasts partial ocean views; enjoy casual meals at the large serving/eating island or on our new dining table. The open kitchen is stocked with everything you will need, whether you're cooking for 2 or a crowd. If you must keep in touch with the "real world" enjoy FREE high-speed wireless internet access.

The comfortable master suite has a king bed with full-bathroom, private lanai, large, organized closet with plenty of extra towels and linens, and full-size HE washer/dryer in another closet. The condo features 2 full-bathrooms with walk-in showers and lots of comfortable living & dining space.

We've tried to think of everything to help make your stay more enjoyable. When you start packing, save some money and don't pay the airline's extra baggage fees -- just pack your swimsuit and use some of the great "bonus gear" we have waiting for you:

Little Kid’s gear; "Pack & Play" crib & sheets, booster seat/high chair, baby monitor, buckets, shovels, float toys for the pool, life jackets.

Kids’ and Grown-up Kids’ gear: beach toys, rolling cooler, beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, football, frisbee.

Specialty gear: two sets of new golf clubs - Ben Hogan Apex irons Callaway X-18s, and four sets of snorkeling equipment.

About Kelley Kane

We live in Seattle and dream about spending more time in the Maui sun - someday! We co-own this condo with another Seattle family, and some of our best family times have been spent on the beach and in the Ekahi pool!

Kelley Kane purchased this condo in 2006

Why Kelley Kane chose Wailea

We chose to buy this property after several trips to Maui and staying each time at Ekahi Village. It is the perfect spot for families, couples, really anyone who is looking for a relaxing Maui vacation. Ekahi is the perfect blend of quiet and enough activities nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

2014 was filled with hard work and a focus for business. When my better half decided we needed a vacation, we quickly decided Maui. We had stayed at Ekahi before.

We arrived and the condo was spotless. The recently remodeled unit with two flat screens was perfect. It had all the creature comforts of home with a slightly better weather forecast (for December) than our home in the Seattle area.

The condo is perfectly located near the pool and a few steps to the ocean. Several mornings we had coffee on the lanai outside the living room. After doing so, we would head to one of the more popular snorkeling sights to swim with incredible sea life. One morning we hit the jackpot as we snorkeled among a pod of dolphins (I quit counting at 47). They swam with us for nearly 45 minutes.

We went to Lahaina on several times as it was close to Ekahi – so many great things to do there.

Needless to say, it was a fantastic vacation which was enhanced by your outstanding place. The location was perfect, the price was fair and if you’ll have us next year, we will be in contact soon. I know your place is in high demand.

Thank you for everything. Your attention to detail in maintaining your condo made really made our stay. Also, thanks for the hot tip on a great happy hour at Five Palms. We LOVED your place. It was just the R and R needed to start the new year off right.

Best,
Nov 2014

Perfect Family Getaway in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I sought the perfect family vacation with our two little ones (ages 4yrs and 2yrs...with a third child on the way) in Hawaii and felt extremely fortunate to find unit #6a in Ekahi Villlage in Wailea, Maui! This spacious unit comfortably accommodated us and we are already planning on returning next year. The owners are extremely communicative and hospitable. After booking, they told me about all the children's toys, beach gear, etc in the condo already. My girls were in heaven. In fact we packed a blow-up tube floaty device for our 2yr old to use in the pool and didn't even need to unpack it since the condo already had it. The location in Wailea is ideal for a family that wants to relax in comfort and have access to several pools, and a beautiful un-crowded and pristine beach. The community that stays in this complex were extremely friendly too. In fact the guests renting next door to us told us they are regulars and rent every year because there are no other condos that can compare in Wailea.

Honestly, we have no complaints, only praise and wish we stayed longer! We will definitely be repeat customers!

Comfortable stay, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great stay in Ekahi 6A! The location above all was perfect -- a 2 minute stroll to the pool, and 3 minutes to the beach. And it was a perfect beach for sand, snorkeling and swimming every day we were there. The pool was comfortably warm... nothing fancy, but a nice amenity for the kids, and rarely crowded.

The interior of the condo was designed thoughtfully, with everything we needed provided, from linens to kitchen supplies, etc. A/C units in both rooms made naps more tolerable for the kids. Boogie boards, some kid sand toys as well as snorkel gear was available too. A beautiful, and mostly private lanai for dining was used daily. All we had to do was bring food -- in terms of prices and produce quality we had the best luck at Foodland in Kihei as opposed to Safeway, but YMMV.

Wailea is pretty compact. We visited the Shops at Wailea (~3 minute drive) a couple times for dining, occasional groceries, souvenirs, and even a free show. Public beach parking was a similar distance and useful for accessing the coastal beach walk for sunset strolls (we were also able to take in the Luau show at the Marriott from along this walkway).

All in all, a great place to stay. Hope we'll have a chance to come back.

Super!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Ekahi 6A ! The condo is beautifully renovated with all amenities you could need. Kitchen is well supplied with all necessary appliances and equipment. We especially liked the fact that a generous supply of condiments were left by previous visitors, which of course saves money on the grocery bill. The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. Lots of beach toys and a great bar bq! Location was perfect. Will definitely stay here again! Thank You Kelley!

A little bit of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Ekahi 6a was ideal for the us. Being on the ground floor, the lanai abutting a large lawn over looking lust flowering vegetation was so serene. Also, with our daughter, husband and grand children in a near by unit the kids had easy access between units. The short walk to the pool and beach were ideal. Also enjoyed the great snorkeling adjacent to the beach ( turtles, fish, etc). Do it again in a minute.

A Great Find for South Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We normally go to Maui in April when a/c isn't necessary. For this trip, it was definitely nice to have! This unit is especially well located. Being downstairs, with a lovely garden view, allowed us to come in and out for easy pool and beach access. This would be an especially great unit for families with small children, as it is just a short, almost flat, walk to the pavillion and beach...I'm sure some of the parents staying at the "top" of the village wished they could drive up and down the hill will all of their beach equipment!

The two bathrooms made it easy to share the space with our adult daughter. And the washer and dryer in the unit were way more convenient than having to go back and forth to a laundry room like many of the condo rentals in the Kihei area.

The recent renovation was nicely done, and we really enjoyed having a well-stocked kitchen, and nice gas grill, as dinner on the patio was our favorite spot in Maui!

There was a good supply of beach and snorkeling gear, which saved on the rental fees. We left a couple of boogie boards to add to the collection.

We really enjoy the beach and snorkeling right off the property. We've checked out lots of beaches on the island, and always feel lucky to be staying right off the best one.

I would highly recommend this property!
