Experience the luxury of indoor-outdoor living while watching the whales from your lanai as you sip your morning coffee, or while you catch the sunset from the comfort of your living room, or as you let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep.
What’s “indoor-outdoor” living? It’s what you get when doors that slide out of sight replace the original 12-foot wall between living room and lanai, resulting in a single expansive open living area.
Extensively remodeled in 2007, this sparkling oceanfront property boasts dual-zone air conditioning, coffered ceilings, ceiling fans throughout, stone kitchen counters, original artwork and quality McGuire furnishings. The dining table seats six—or eat at the kitchen island or on the lanai with its Weber gas grill. The big-screen TV rotates 90 degrees, so you can watch from any of those spots-- if you can keep your eyes off the panoramic view.
And “panoramic” here means watching the sunset from your lanai virtually any time of year, or savoring vistas that stretch from Pu'u Olai in the south to the West Maui Mountains in the north, with the islands of Kaho'olawe and Lana'i in between. In season, spot whales from your lanai—or from the dining table or couch, since you’ll be enjoying expansive ocean views from bedroom, living and dining rooms, and kitchen.
Located in beautiful Wailea, this gorgeous 1-bedroom, 2 bath unit can sleep 2 to 4 with its king size bed in the master suite and queen size wall bed in the living room. Its location in lower Ekahi Village means no long climbs up the hill after a day at the beach. Forgot your sunscreen? It’s a three-minute walk back home to retrieve it—two if you’re in a hurry. The Ekahi beach pavilion and main swimming pool are a minute away. A smaller “adult” pool and paddle tennis court are a half-minute walk the other direction—not far from the herb garden. Two additional swimming pools dot the 35 spacious acres of mature and lush tropical landscaping in this complex.
Take advantage of the private beach entrance from this exclusive Wailea property, just next to the main pool, that drops you right onto the sand—no streets to cross, just an easy garden path right to the water. Then turn right for a half-mile of beautiful Keawakapu beach, one of the more secluded beaches in South Maui, since it lies in front of beautiful private homes, with only one hotel at the far north end and one condo complex (Wailea Ekahi Village) at the south. Or from your private Ekahi beach entrance you can turn left, where a few steps past the tide pools will take you the world-famous Wailea beach walk. There you can stroll another mile and a half to the south, if you like, past the waterside resorts and restaurants of Wailea and to three more beaches, with all the beachside activities you’d expect from a five-star resort property.
A five-minute drive south gets you to the Shops at Wailea where you can indulge your cravings, whether it’s Gucci you crave—or just ice cream and a T shirt. And five minutes north lands you in the excitement of Kihei, the other center for shopping, food and activities of South Maui.
Come on. What are you waiting for? Come listen to the waves from this secluded little gem—make it your vacation retreat in paradise. Once you’re here, it’s only three minutes till you’ve got your toes in the sand.
