About John Russell & Mike Imler

Ekahi 5A is one of three Ekahi units owned by two families from the Seattle area. The Russell and Imler families both have been visiting Wailea Ekahi Village for more than a decade. Over the years our families have explored many resort areas on Maui, as well as those on other Islands. In the end, we always found ourselves coming back to Ekahi. We purchased Ekahi 5A in October 2010, Ekahi 1C in December of 2013, and Ekahi 5D in December 2015. We are especially committed to having the most well stocked unit at Ekahi. Our guests will enjoy nothing but top quality when it comes to linens, kitchen supplies, beach gear, baby gear, electronics etc.. We’ve tried to think of everything so that you can focus on relaxing and enjoying your time in paradise. Our goal is to offer an experience that will encourage you to return and stay with us again. Please contact us with any questions you might have.

The unit had more amenities than listed- we were wont for nothing

The unit was immaculate, well maintained and everything worked properly

Information was available regarding the community

Russell was available immediately when I called

The Wailea shops were near, poolside was great and beach access divine

I would recommend this property and owners to all- and I will book again

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very comfortable and a great change from the resort hotel rooms we booked for the rest of our 4-island trip. We loved the in-house laundry, the roominess, the modern kitchen and the pool and beach. The bath areas (two full baths) are a little on the small side but fine. Well kept up, tiled, etc., as was the rest of the condo. The bedroom was plenty roomy and the king bed very comfortable. We didn't use the pool but if we had stayed longer we would have. The poolside accommodations were great for lounging and visiting. Unit 5A is just 2-3 minutes from the beach and a direct run, no streets to cross. We did walk the beach several times. We liked the numeric key pad for entering - no key to keep track of.

We would book the unit again.

Quiet, comfortable and room enough for 5

  • 5 of 5

Starting with location, set in a beautiful area of Wailea near to high end resorts this unit is quiet and spacious and has a very private feel looking out on the meticulous tropical gardens from the lanai. We are a family of 5, with three young children we found the space to be ample. The convenience of having a full kitchen, laundry and two bathrooms suited our needs. The distance to pool and beach is a short walk, amazing ocean views and plenty of tables and lounge chairs poolside. We visited several beaches during our stay and would have to say ours was the favourite. Enough surf in the afternoons to boogie board, yet calm enough to swim and snorkel. Super clean beach, few shells just soft sand. We would like to visit again and stay at this unit.

Fabulous, nicely stocked with a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 8 night stay in this unit early Dec. 2015. We've stayed in the Ekahi many times and this is our favorite unit so far. First of all, the location is awesome. Unlike so many Ekahi- units it's a pretty flat , quick walk to the pool and beach. Second, is a very well equipt unit with great beach stuff (snorkel sets, boogie boards, Tommy Bahama chairs, beach toys, and my favorite: a wagon!) Third, the inside is updated- nothing too fancy, but nice enough. We loved the new A/C units that actually work! Most of the lights have dimmers. There's baby stuff too (pack and play, toddler booster seat). It also has keyless entry using a keypad on both doors- which makes it sp easy to come and go. The first floor it is very easy to get in and out of. We loved sitting on the lanai eating a meal an seeing the beautiful plumeria tree as well as the nice lush vegetation all around. The king bed is firm and comfortable. They have a foam mattress topper for the pull out couch that helps. We will definitely return!

Couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

Having travelled the world and stayed at many VRBOs, we can say this was the best equipped unit we've stayed at. Wailea is beautiful, the Ekahi an excellent location and John and Mike the perfect hosts. This unit is a convenient 2 min walk to pool and beach, has beautiful view of green belt and very private. I originally wanted a beachfront/view condo but I can honestly say that I didn't miss not being waterfront with the convenience and other benefits of this unit. It was perfect for two people wanting space and the comforts of home. Lots of supplies and beach toys and the condition and cleanliness top-notch. Owners were responsive and extremely easy to deal with. I have no complaints except county of Maui doesn't permit alcohol sales after 11pm. Take that into consideration when your flight arrives :)

Great stay at a well equipped, very well located, larger than normal 1 bedroom unit

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting the Hawaiian Islands for more than 35 years and have stayed at many condo units. This unit was among the very best we have encountered and certainly a great value. It is well located in the best part of southern Maui and very well located within the condo complex itself. It was a very short walk out the back door to the main pool and Keawakapu Beach. It is far enough from the main road that we did not hear any road noise the whole time we were there. The unit is quite large for a one bedroom. The frosting on the cake, though, is how super well-equipped the unit is with boogie boards, beach umbrellas, beach towels, golf clubs, snorkel equipment, and kid's beach toys. Leave all that stuff at home - this place has it all. Highly recommended.
