A very private entry off South Kihei Rd. gives this unit unique seclusion and the ideal 2 minute walk to Keawakapu Beach. As a ground floor unit the lanai fronts on a perfectly manicured green belt, and looks out on the ocean to Molikini Crater and magnificent tropical sunsets. Enjoy the lanai's gas barbecue for private dinners with a sunset view, or take the short stroll to the large pool and pavilion to enjoy a social hour with friends or that evening walk on the beach.
23C is newly remodeled with Cherry cabinetry from DeWils, Corian countertops and sink, new tile floors, and appliances, updated Hawaii style furnishings, king bed in the master bedroom, pull out sofa in the living room, and 2 full baths. Plantation louvered shutters and cieling fans regulate airflow naturally and the ground floor location insulates the interior from tropical sun.
Our location makes access to that morning swim in the ocean or walk on the beach an absolute pleasure. Visit snorkel sites to the south, peruse the hotel scene via the scenic coastal walk, shop at local area boutiques, enjoy upscale restaurants, play golf, tennis, or sunbathe on the beach. Everything is within easy reach at Wailea. Here is where one can come and truly relax in paradise.

Steve Dupuis is the current owner and son of the original purchasers of 23C, Harlan and Adele Dupuis. Harlan and Adele bought at Wailea on the recommendation of their best friends and neighbors in Orinda, CA. in November of 1976. Over the course of many years the Dupuis family developed a close network of friends and acquaintances who vacationed at Wailea and formed a corp of renters who returned to 23C year after year. Today, many of those same families and their friends still return to take advantage of this fabulous location. Steve and his wife Shelley continue to carry on the tradition of cultivating long term relations with the people who love to come back again and again to Wailea.
Harlan Dupuis grew up in Santa Barbara, CA and was a sea scout and beach life guard as a young man. When WWII came along he was an officer in the U.S. Navy and served aboard the U.S.S. Crescent City in the South Pacific. Selecting Wailea Ekahi was a perfectly natural choice for he and his wife given his years of living on and around the Pacific Ocean. As the parents passed that legacy on to their children, Steve and Shelley look forward to many years of enjoyment at Wailea.
As 23C is so close to both the large pool and the beach, morning and evening walks by the water are a daily regimen for us. When the kids were young we would all grab snorkelling gear and walk south along the hotel pathway until we found the snorkel site we wanted to explore that morning and in we'd go. On Fourth of July we were within walking distance of the most magnificent fireworks display right at the beach. Even a fancy restaurant at one of the local hotels was within walking distance. The peace and serenity at Wailea makes one hardly want to leave.
