Overview

About the property

Unit: Wailea Ekolu 507 | Maui Guidebook

SUMMARY

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.

LOCATION

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.

COMPLEX

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.

UNIT SPECIFICS

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.)

(Rates are for 2 guests. Add $25/nt. fee per person up to 4)

Guestbook comments from the manager

If there weren't guests scheduled to arrive Dec 1, we would have extended our stay. This condo had everything we needed and then some. We loved our beach time, our sunsets, our Maui Zumba, and our retail therapy. Three weeks was just not enough!

Wonderful! Condo has everything you need. View is outstanding, walking distance to everything

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view from the condo, the lanai is fantastic to seat in and enjoy the view. Walking distance to beaches, shops, restaurants. Condo was clean and comfortable. It has everything you need for cooking, and everything for the beach: towels, umbrella, chairs, boogie board etc... close to main road but still surprisingly quiet, did not hear cars from the lanai, or the bedroom. There is a big construction site not far away that we could sometimes hear. It was however not too disturbing (and I am sensitive to noise pollution). Overall very happy with our stay. Would come back!

Nice property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Maui and first to South Maui, and have been to Kaui, Oahu, and the Big Island previously. The unit is in a great location in Wailea and closer to the beach than most of the other units in the complex. It is adjacent to a walking path, but was quiet with light traffic at times. Privacy not an issue unless you were on the lanai, but not a significant concern. We enjoyed breakfast and late afternoon cocktails on the lanai every day!

The photos represent well, although we usually had some of the blinds down, making it a little darker. Well stocked with appliances, utensils, and the beach bin of chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards was great. The toaster did not work for us but we worked around it and reported at checkout. Everything else was in good condition and clean when we arrived. A community gas grill was steps from the lanai and we used it once - it was clean and worked well. We did not use the pool.

The only issue was finding the unit - the address of the office leads one to the street above 507 and there was no signage guiding us to buildings 1-5 (there were signs for buildings on the street above the office). The office had closed when we arrived (5 pm) but some locals directed us.

The Shops at Wailea are an 8 minute walk and the Wailea beach path provides great morning walking. We drove to Makena and Po'olenalena Beaches to get away from the resort crowds and enjoy a more local feel.

I would not hesitate to rent this unit again and potentially others on the property. Avoid units close to Wailea Ike Drive as there is a lot of traffic on that road and the noise was an issue for people staying in those units. Noise was not an issue at all for unit 507.

Thank you for the great stay in Wailea!

Wailea Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly outstanding. The views are to die for. The furnishings are first class, all the way down to kitchen amenities. The "beach chest" has everything you could want or need to enjoy Maui. The owner, Ross, and the on-island contact, Louise, are phenomenal to work with and are dedicated to making you feel at home.

My wife and I have been going to the islands for the past 25 years and this property is the best!

Great location and view - but needs a good cleaning

  • 3 of 5

The pictures are correct - this is a prime location walking distance to everything. The views were great! Although everything was "tidy" - the place could use a good cleaning. Upon arrival and fussing with an old lockbox we noticed the front entrance could have been cleaned and swept. The indoors has everything you need and is decorated nicely and comfy. The place could use a good cleaning - - i even washed the sheets because they didn't seem fresh - they might have been in a cabinet for some time. We had a hot water problem, but the owner was "Extremely" fast in getting the problem solved!!! He was actually great! Paying $165.00 cleaning fee when the place wasn't that clean was disappointing.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you thought the place wasn't as clean as it could have been - our cleaner spends a minimum of 4-5 hours on every single turnover to attend to every detail; cleanliness is very important to us! This is our first non 5-star review (out of 41 so far) and I really wish you would have called us during your stay, we would have sent someone right over to attend to any issues you may have had! We're happy you enjoyed the rest of your stay and hope you will give us the opportunity to host you on your next visit :)
