We are new Owners of our lovely Wailea townhouse in the Ekolu complex. 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 20 years.

Lynn Bensinger purchased this condo in 2012

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.

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.

OMG...Wenhave waited 20 years to come to Hawaii...We would recommend coming to Wailea Ekolu 710 in Maui. This roomy, comfortable, pristine Hawaiian style unit we would recommend for a romantic getaway or to bring a family. In our opinion, this home is located in the best part of Maui: best weather & close to any water sport you would like to take part in. There are lots of wonderful quaint shops or fancy malls very close by...every girls dream!

We have never slept better in the very comfortable bed, and I must admit that I have to do some improvement to my own bed! You have modern conveniences such as a washer/dryer.You can also hang you your items on a clothes line inside.

I loved the ability to prepare meals in the well equipped kitchen...or grill out on the lanai. Fixing Butterfish on the grill was most excellent.

The view of the ocean from inside or from the lanai is breathtaking! It just soothes the soul. Stargazing from the lanai was awesome as well. The pool is beautiful & peaceful.

I can't neglect to mention Dallas, who was such a good resource for activities and so eager to help in any way.

I don't want to leave ... Can't wait to come back. I will definitely come back to Wailea and to this unit!

Aloha!!

Fantastic value

We absolutely loved our stay in Maui! The condo was perfect for us. The weather was fantastic, the view of the ocean was gorgeous. We even saw a pod of whales from the balcony! The beds were very comfortable so we woke up refreshed and ready to take on the day. The place was clean and neat with lots of room to relax, the kitchen was just right for preparing meals to enjoy inside or out on the balcony. The new refrigerator was great. We were able to save money dining in or taking food to the beach or wherever we went. Overall I found the condo an exceptional value allowing us to do more on the island and get the most out of our vacation. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely home! We will definitely be back!

Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
The Pros...... Nice pool and lounge area. The view from the balcony of the ocean and the crater is nice and we did see a couple of whales. The view area is small and the main view is a parking lot. Wailea beaches are fabulous and a short drive from the condo. The condo grounds are well maintained and very pretty.
The Cons..... The unit is past due for a total renovation. The fridge is terrible, broken shelves, poor working condition, the door around the edges worn dirty and rusted. Over all the fridge is recycle material. Dishwasher upper rack broken and falls out of the unit.
Counters and cupboards worn and dirty. Living room furniture suitable for the "Spanish inquisition" a torture to sit in! Bedroom with double beds the sheets would not stay on the bed both mattresses need replacing. neither of the lamps worked. The window AC blows air directly into the side of one of the beds. All bathrooms so dated! Brown fixtures circa 1970's.... Breakers constantly tripped. Both front doors need to be replaced as the upper door's original lock and the door handle are broken and covered with duct tap, while the downstairs door had a gap under it so large you can see daylight.
The dryer vents right into the hall so the bedrooms were humid and hot.
In Conclusion...... The area is very nice and we would stay in the condo development again but not in this unit. We stayed two weeks and dealt with the issues just not again
Owner's Response: We are accustomed to great reviews and happy guests, many of whom return. We are truly sorry you felt disappointed.
Since acquiring our Maui home (May of ’12), we've made major upgrades and enhancements while striving to keep our rental prices low.
Some items you mentioned were already being handled. The refrigerator, which had some minor rust spots ran well and we sold it. It’s been replaced with a new quality stainless steel one. People who live in tropical marine environments know too well about the harmful effect salt air has on metal. The dishwasher rack had a tiny broken part and it has been replaced. Our cabinets are original & made of Hawaiian hardwoods & the wooden bar top was crafted by a local artisan. We won’t replace them, because WE LIKE THEM. We clean and oil quarterly w/ wipe downs between guests. We also like the earth toned ceramic bathroom tiles & fixtures. The Kohler ensuite “lua” is quite new, so know the “café au lait” color is still being produced. The front door lock was replaced and the doors are just fine.
We are determined to minimize our impact on the planet & mindful of Maui’s fragile ecology, so are not eager to indiscriminately feed landfills. We also use earth-friendly cleaning supplies.
Our living room furniture is coordinated and in good shape. We and other guests find them suitable & comfy. The 2nd bedroom has brand new queen-sized (hotel quality, pillow top) mattress sets outfitted with soft Egyptian cotton sheets. We’ve actually had guests comment on the comfort of the beds!
The AC units are optimally placed in the bedrooms and the breaker issue was a simple fix. We offered electrician service; you declined.
Re: Dryer: We are exploring alternate venting. We prefer air-drying laundry and have added retractable lines to foster energy conservation. If the dryer is needed, the solution is to run it during the cooler parts of the day w/ bedroom doors shut & cracking the lower door for breeze.
We looked long & hard for an abode with good karma, cozy charm, plenty space & a privacy facilitating layout. A VINTAGE HAWAIIAN VIBE is what we wanted…harkening back to the Pan Am Airways era; a simpler time. We toured a few modern, granite-encrusted condos…fancy GENERIC units that exist EVERYWHERE on the planet. We wanted character, retro ambiance & a nod to the Hawaiian culture we love.
We wholeheartedly understand & respect that your taste is different than ours. Our beloved Maui ohana kauhale was simply not a fit for you.

This townhouse is in the perfect area. Shops of Wailea and the resorts are all so close.
Lots of space and the views are great! The Wailea area has way less traffic than Lahaina and the grounds of the complex are meticulous.

We loved this place. It is very clean and comfortable. The beds have great mattresses. The sunsets from the lani where awesome. It was very homey for us and we would stay there again. The owners were always easy to contact and they were very helpful and accommodating.
