My first trip to Maui was to attend a friends wedding and have been back at least two or 3 times a year for the past 30 years managing my vacation rentals in Maui. Having graduated from law school at Tulsa University, obtaining a masters in labor law at NYU and a Real Estate Broker's license in CA, I decided to put all these skills to work in real estate investing.
Gil Van Valkenburg purchased this condo in 2014
Location, location, location is the criteria I use when chosing a property and this unit has that and more. The views are the best in the complex, it is totally private where no other units face you and is situated away from all roads and the associated road noise. The high vaulted ceilings in this upper level unit afford the best views possible and an open, airy, tropical feeling. Did I mention the VIEWS?! Oh yes, they are unobstructed from the living room, master bedroom, kitchen and lanais and capture the nightly blaze of color as the sun sets over the breaching whales during whale season.
As soon as we pulled into the Ekolu Condo community we knew we had chosen the right place. Then when we entered Gil's condo and we were thrilled. What a beautiful classy place. We loved it. Could not be happier. Gill was a pleasure to communicate with and his condo was the best equipped place we have ever visited. Thank you Gill for doing such a great job to make sure your vacation renters have a vacation home that is so nicely decorated and equipped. We highly recommend this place if you want a place that is away from the noise and crowds yet close enough that you can take a comfortable stroll to a world class beach, Wailea Blue golf course, world class shops at Wailea and world class restaurants at Grand Wailea Ekolu is a short direct easy drive from Kuhului airport, and the many sights that we wanted to visit during our 12 night stay.
Having stayed at this condo complex before we knew the location would be perfect. The condo is beautiful, well kept, clean and very private. Gil supplies everything. We were pleasantly surprised at the nice beach chairs, and snorkel equipment. The view is awesome from the living room, kitchen and master bedroom. We stayed for 16 nights and never had a single issue. It was a pleasure dealing with Gil and we hope to be back again next year.
I wrote the previous review, and went back to read it, spellcheck had changed a word, I tried to go back to fix it, but it did not allow me to. So what it should say near the end is, 'It felt like home' (not hike) all the comforts of home, were provided for us by the owners. Oh, yes and may I add, there is air conditioners in all rooms, if you need, but all the windows and doors have screens, if you keep them open, the air flows freely and you wont need to turn on the air conditioned most of the time. It's truly the place to be!
The very first time we walked in, my husband said "WOW". This place is immaculate, it's clean, it shows pride of ownership by how well it's kept. Its furnished comfortable, great quality furniture, the rooms are spacious. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, which it great for privacy. The view is breathtaking. We stayed here for 10 days, during which time our daughter got married in Maui. There were 5 other condos rented in Wailea by family and friends who came to the wedding, our condo was the 'talk of the town' , it was the best, the others wished they had rented it. The condo is so well equipped and add to that the view. My favorite place to sit was on the balcony looking out to the ocean, so serene and beautiful. The condo is placed far into the golf course which makes it farthest from the road, such a peaceful quiet place, no road noises can be heard. The owner Gil, was easy to deal with, he answered all our questions promptly and was really friendly and helpful. We would definately stay here again and recommend this place to anyone going to Maui. As when we first walked in and my husband said 'wow', that word about sums it up, it truly felt like hike, our stay was fantastic. It
Our family of 5 had the pleasure of staying at this great property and we loved it!! The condo itself is immaculately clean, modern and the beds were extremely comfortable. The view is incredible and everything you could want or need is supplied. Gil was incredibly accommodating and wonderful to work with. He was always available to answer any questions we had. We will definitely be back!!! Thanks again Gil.
We knew instantly when we walked into this condo, we would have difficulty leaving it, even for day trips! It was beautiful, comfortable, well decorated, quality furnishings and the views magnificent. Certainly beyond our expectations and truly became our home away from home. There were three of us but I would say, perfect for 2 couples. Both bedrooms/bathrooms can be closed off if needed and beds are extremely comfortable, with a sizable living room, dining area and entry way. The kitchen just perfect, everything in good working order and well maintained with every gadget known to man that one would need in a kitchen. Our family's personal favorite was the main lanai specifically for the beautiful view but also comfortable outdoor furniture. Easy access and handy to have an Urgent Care Clinic nearby, shopping one block away, beach, Grand Wailea in all it's style, amazing restaurants within walking distance, good parking, great pool, snorkling gear, etc. Just amazing. Mahalo to Gil (owner) who was always quickly responsive and easy to communicate with. Excellent instruction in closing blinds, turning off aircon when leaving for a while as this most definitely helps with keeping rooms cooler. Enjoy those who stay in the future and steer clear when its our turn to stay again!!!
