Unit: Wailea Ekolu 507 | Maui Guidebook
Sweeping ocean and breathtaking neighbor island views from the living, dining, kitchen, bedroom and both lanais. Private ground floor corner location. Minutes from the very best beaches in Maui. Minutes from both luxury and down to earth shopping and dining. Clean, high quality, designer-styled and upscale furnishings. This unit is a rock solid value – you get Wailea location and quality for not much more than a Kihei price tag.
Wailea is the luxury end of South Maui for good reason – many of the very best beaches in the world are here. There are also four world-class golf courses, posh luxury resorts, upscale shopping and fine dining. Kihei, just a few minutes north of here has more down to earth options for shopping and dining as well, so you won’t have to break the bank every day of your visit.
The 18-acre property is centrally located just off of Wailea Ike Drive – with easy access to all of South Maui within minutes. The Piilani Highway starts less than a half mile from your door, so you’ll get moving fast when you leave Wailea for adventures around the island.
There are too many beaches to list – but these four beaches are within a 2-3 minute drive from your front door:
Wailea Beach – Consistently rated one of the world’s best beaches.
Ulua Beach – Quarter-mile long pocket of sandy beach; great for snorkeling & learning scuba.
Mokapu Beach – Good swimming, boogie boarding and excellent snorkeling. Often uncrowded.
Keawakapu Beach – A much loved long sandy beach; Uncrowded, rent ocean gear, snorkeling. A favorite.
The rest of South Maui’s wonderful beaches, including Big Beach are 3-15 minutes away.
Tip: Google mauiguidebook and the beach name to red more about these beaches.
Wailea Ekolu Village is an 18-acre park-like property with 17 garden-style buildings. The buildings are two-story and small in contrast to the property, with generous amounts of open-space everywhere. Unit 507 located in the area of the property that is closest to the ocean. While it’s fairly close and walking to the ocean is certainly an option for many, most guests will still choose to drive a couple minutes for the convenience.
The park-like rolling hills and lawns are landscaped with tropical flowering plants and trees and boast vast blue ocean views from virtually everywhere. You can see captivating sunsets, dramatic neighbor islands, and the West Maui Mountains punctuating the end of the South Maui coastline. The views are many, and all are spectacular.
It is a short stroll to one of two solar-heated pools and an entertainment pavilion. There is also a BBQ picnic area virtually right outside your back door.
The property sits on the Wailea Blue golf course – this unit is removed from the fairways, but it is an easy walk right from the condo to play a round.
507 is a private, ground-floor corner unit. It has been designer-styled and tastefully furnished with upscale furnishings. Fully equipped gourmet kitchen with glass-top stove and granite countertops. There is a pass-through window to the lanai and year-round perfect view of sunsets over the ocean from inside and out. There is free parking right out front of the unit.
There are a couple charcoal grills with picnic tables just 35 feet from your back lanai – and you will almost always have that all to yourself. There is an electric bbq on the lanai if you would prefer skipping lighting a fire.
The master bedroom has a top-quality King-sized bed with luxury linens. There is a queen sofa-sleeper in living room. The upscale tropical style living room furniture is centered around a luxuriously comfy down feather couch and chair.
There are two flat screen wall-mounted TVs with premium cable (47? in living room; 39? in bedroom.)
