Wailea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)



Our luxurious home-away-from home is most desirable, as it is located on the UPPER level of a two-story building in Wailea Ekolu Village. Our high vaulted ceilings are appreciated as allowing a much more open and spacious feeling than the lower levels that have a more closed-in look. This prime location is one of the closest of Ekolu's units to the ocean, situated directly adjacent to Wailea's magnificent Old Blue golf course.

We have panoramic ocean views of the islands of Kahoolawe, Lanai, and Molokini, and the West Maui Mountains from both the master bedroom and living room lanais, as well as from the kitchen, bedroom and living room windows. You will enjoy dining and relaxing on the ocean-facing lanais during the day, and watching magnificent sunsets at night. During the winter/early spring months one can enjoy watching whales frolicking in the distance. The third lanai overlooks the foothills of Mt. Haleakala.

Our spacious 1,400 square-foot condominium (including the three lanais) has a separate entryway, kitchen and bar area, living/dining room, and two master bedroom suites, each with its own private bathroom. Air-conditioners are in each bedroom and the living room. We have added high-speed internet with WiFi at no additional cost to our guests. Our vacation home is decorated with specifically selected fine artwork, decor, and comfortable furnishings for an aesthetically beautiful tropical theme. Our second story advantage allows us tall vaulted ceilings that give our condo a very open and spacious feeling, as well as allowing for wonderful ocean views. Upper level units rent a little higher than lower because of this additional open space and ocean views.

Our remodeling includes solid granite slabs in the kitchen and both bathrooms, travertine floors in the entryway, kitchen, and bathrooms, travertine tile in both showers, and hard-surfaced floors in the living room and both bedrooms. Our favorite shower is in the guest bathroom where we have artistically inset small granite Honu (turtles) throughout the shower walls. Both bedrooms, as well as the living room, have separately controlled air-conditioners. There is a TV in each bedroom, with a large LCD flat panel in the living room. The kitchen is fully stocked with all amenities. There is a large front loading washer and dryer next to the master bedroom/bath suite for your convenience. We purchase new plush towels and linens each year to update our unit. Extra beach towels and equipment are stored for our guest's use.

For your enjoyment, Ekolu Village has two beautiful tiled swimming pools that overlook the ocean. Our guests have access to free parking and several outside barbecues amidst the 17 beautifully maintained acres of tropical landscaped grounds.

A short walking distance away is the Old Blue golf course clubhouse and the prestigious Shops At Wailea, an upscale center with fine restaurants, art galleries, clothing and jewelry outlets, coffee emporium, general store, and sundries shops as well as 5-star hotels. One can indulge in sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving at the nearby award-winning beaches of Wailea, Ulua, Mokapu, Keawakapu, Polo, and Big Beach, among others. Close by, for hiking and exercise enthusiasts, is a two-mile-long paved promenade that winds its way along the ocean and the Wailea luxury 5-star resort hotels.

The rental rate depends on the season (the Christmas/New Year's period being the most expensive) and length of stay. Maximum occupancy is five, including all children. Complete details can be found by visiting our webpage or contacting us by email.

This is a NON-SMOKING, non-pet unit. We have REDUCED RATES for stays of 11 nights or more.

We have several guest reviews, if interested.

Why Connie & Jim Samuelson chose Maui

Wailea is one of the most prestigious areas on the island of Maui, with several 5-star hotels and highly rated golf courses and top beaches . Ekolu Village has over 17 acres of tropical landscaped areas with wonderful ocean views in all units. Our unit is upstairs with high vaulted ceilings which afford wonderful ocean views as well as a much more open feeling inside our condo.

What makes this condo unique

Ekolu Village condos look directly onto the three islands adjacent to Maui with great views from the lanais of whales breaching during the winter/spring season. We have easy access to many of the island tropical activities, great snorkeling beaches, wonderful restaurants and spas, tennis and golf, high-end shopping as well as last-minute economical stores at the Wailea Village Shopping center.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at your home in Wailea. We really enjoyed our visit during those first days of December and our granddaughter remembered so much from the year before. My hushand refers to your place as Maui (smiling face).

Lovely condo! Walk to shops & restaurants

  • 5 of 5

This condo is one of the nicest I've stayed in. Kitchen has everything you want for a few day or few week stay. Plenty of towels and linens. Tidy, well decorated and comfortable. Condos are situated so each unit is very quiet. You can easily walk to the restaurants nearby as well as the Shops at Wailea. The beach is a longer walk or quick car ride. Would definitely stay here again!

Lovely Vacation in Maui

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO and we were very pleased. The condo had everything we needed- stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, beach equipment and was very spacious for our group of 3. The condo was very clean and comfortable. We visited many of the nearby beaches- which were so easy to drive to and never too crowded. Jim and Connie were very responsive and made our experience top-notch.

Superb condo with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Our group of three was very pleased with our stay here. Jim and Connie's place has all the amenities to make you feel at home. Ekolu village is a beautiful and peaceful property on a golf course, where you will find stunning views of three islands around the grounds and from you own balconies. The location is perfect for its proximity to great shopping, dining, and beaches in Wailea, or in nearby Kihei. The condo was immaculate and well-equipped with beach toys, chairs and towels. We will definitely recommend this property to others, and look forward to visiting again!

Lovely condo in beautiful Wailea

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a condo and we could not be more pleased with our stay. With a total of 3 guests, the unit was more than spacious - it really felt like home. The unit is equipped with everything you could need during your stay. Owners are very responsive and provide detailed instructions for check in and check out procedures as well as helpful tips on what to do in the area for those that are new to Maui. Within a few minutes walk to Shops at Wailea and great beaches.
