Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our Maui vacation rental is a light and airy one-bedroom, two-bath condominium on the second floor of Ekahi's Upper Village. It comfortably sleeps four guests, with a lovely tropical garden view overlooking a quiet and peaceful swimming pool (Pool #3). You also enjoy a gorgeous partial ocean view from the pretty lanai and our well-stocked kitchen. Vaulted 15+ foot ceilings in the great room of our Maui rental create a feeling of spaciousness that belies its size.

Although the interior space and lanai are only 1090 square feet, the condominium is laid out in such a way as to more than accommodate four people. You will also find it equipped with beach chairs, towels, umbrella, boogie board, many videos and DVD's, books, WiFi, and everything else necessary for a delightful sojourn in Maui.

It is a five minute walk down a greenbelt to Keawakapu Beach and the ocean -- no roads to cross! You can snorkel or jump waves to your heart's content; it is a sandy white beach about a mile long. Our unit is quiet, not on the street, and you will hear the birdsongs as you enjoy all the bouganvillea, palm trees, bamboo and flowers that are within reach from our lanai. The snorkeling is fantastic right in front of Ekahi.

About Marilee

We have loved Maui and have been coming to Ekahi for over 25 years now. Our children (now in their early 20s and late teens) learned to surf, snorkel, and boogie board right at Ekahi with us. We are an active family, so some hike Haleakala crater (the volcano), some paraglide up at Kula, some surf or windsurf all over Maui, and others just soak the rays on our beach.

Marilee purchased this condo in 2005

Why Marilee chose Maui

Tom and I bought our second-story unit in Ekahi after renting for a number of years (and enjoying our parents' unit in the 1980s) -- we love the flowers, plumeria trees, and the beach most of all. It is so sunny in Wailea ~ always beautiful weather and clear waters for snorkeling.

What makes this condo unique

We always see turtles here when we snorkel, and the whales are sometimes right off the beach between November and April. Nothing is more relaxing than sitting on the lanai of our condo, 42E.

Amazing, private condo in tropical setting

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful vacation at Ekahi. The condo was perfect for us. The kitchen was well stocked. - our two girls have food allergies, so it was wonderful to be able to cook and then eat on the beautiful deck with a view of tropical gardens and the ocean! We enjoyed everything - the quiet pool, main pool and long beach walks to Kihei. The beautiful walk down the lawns to the beach was always relaxing. The two bathrooms were perfect to have to spread out in, and the Murphy bed was good for our teenage girls. The king bed is super comfortable, and the air conditioning throughout makes the unit very pleasant. The owner provided the use of boogie boards, snorkeling gear, day pack, and beach gear - more stocked than any unit we have ever stayed in. The stand up paddle boards, snorkeling and kayak rentals at the hotel a five minute walk down the beach - the Andaz- were a bonus too! We have stayed at seven different Ekahi 1 bedroom two bathroom units, and this unit was our favorite. Thank you for sharing!

Enjoyed very much, very private lanai

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this unit. The owner was very responsive and wonderful to work with. We found the king bed to be very comfortable, we did not use the murphy bed as it was just 2 of us. My favorite place was the lanai, so private and a beautiful view of the lovely grounds with the ocean down the hill. Every morning, a little gecko and his friend would visit on the lanai. We would give him a few drops of guava juice, which he loved. One of the quiet pools was right next to building 42 and a 5-10 minute walk down the hill took you to the main pool and beach. After a long day of sightseeing, it was always a pleasure to come back to our Maui "home." Thank you for your hospitality Marilee.

All the comforts of home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

42-e was absolutely perfect for our stay over spring break. The space was more than adequate for our family of four. The owners have done an excellent job of organizing a very comfortable spot that feels like home. Like other reviewers, we formed a friendship with a gecko who joined us daily for breakfast; our girls loved the hammock on the lanai; and we had plenty of room to spread out whenever we found ourselves taking a break from the pool or the beach. Great spot - thanks, Marilee!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Looks even better in person. Sitting on the back deck is like being in an episode of Wild Kingdom. Saw whales within 10 minutes of arriving and they put on a performance for almost an hour!!! A friendly gecko visited this morning...we had breakfast together on the back deck. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and I love the "beach toy" closet. That will save us alot on rentals

Couldn't be happier

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of staying twice at this beautiful condo--- once with my wife and once with my wife and 3 adult children. The Ekahi complex is in a quiet wonderfully landscaped lush environment with expansive lawns, palms and pathways and the feeling of openness. The lawns slope down to the pool and to a lovely white sand beach. The adjacent rocks provide a great place to snorkel—lots of fish and turtles. The owners provide snorkeling and beach gear which is a big plus.

The condo itself is very comfortable and well appointed with everything one would need. The balcony deck looks out over bougainvillea and the ocean and is especially relaxing. We had most of our meals there and used the gas BBQ often (sharing of course with the very friendly golden dust day gecko that is happy to lick syrup off your finger if offered). The beds are comfy, the linens fresh, the kitchen well supplied. We will stay here again. I wish I was there now.

Robin & Rob

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to experience Maui and Hawaiian paradise! Bright and cheery, clean and comfortable...ideal tropical setting and views, wonderful pools, ideally located to the best (and uncrowded) beaches, and close to a variety of dining and other conveniences. Unit feels very private with lush landscaping and well-stocked for island fun. We ventured other towns and beaches but always came back to Wailea Ekahi as the best place to relax and unwind. Highly-recommend!
