Wailea Condo Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom, One Bathroom with Ocean Views

Totally remodeled in 2010, Ekahi 17C (with updates and enhancements added each year) offers an ocean view with great amenities. Kitchen countertops are all slab granite with stainless appliances. Other features include a drip coffeemaker, coffee grinder, blender, electric tea kettle and rice cooker. All dinnerware, glassware (including wine glasses), pots & pans, kitchen towels, dishwasher detergent are included.

In the living room you have a flat screen TV with cable, free wireless internet, DVD player and iPod docking station/player. A wall of sliding glass doors leads out to the lanai and yard.

There is a new ductless split vent air conditioning system in the living room/dining room areas and a separate one in the bedroom to keep you plenty cool if needed. These are quiet, unobtrusive and not like the 'motel-type' a/c units found in some condominiums. The dining room, living room & bedroom all have ceiling fans.

You can walk directly from either the kitchen or the living room to our large lanai that offers an ocean view as well as a small yard enclosed by a hedge of Hibiscus and Sea Grapes plantings. An overhead pergola with Lanai furniture and a stainless gas grill make the lanai a very inviting place to relax, have morning coffee and meals. A second lanai is secluded off the bedroom.

The floors in the kitchen, dining room, hallways and bath areas are all tile. There is carpet in the bedroom.

We provide a new Bosch stacked washer and dryer for your use along with detergent.

The bathroom & dressing areas have slab granite counter top, a separate shower and a large closet.

In the bedroom, you'll find a king bed, large dresser, desk and an adjoining secluded lanai.

We also provide a beach umbrella, towels, chairs and cooler. An iron & ironing board are also provided.

About John & Sandy Gilfillan

We are semi-retired professionals who have developed several condominium & suites projects and a B&B in the mountains of Colorado. Originally from the midwest, we now live in Boulder, Colorado.

John & Sandy Gilfillan purchased this condo in 2010

Why John & Sandy Gilfillan chose Maui

We started coming to Hawaii in 1984 and after first staying on Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island...we fell in love with Maui. We first stayed at Ekahi Village in 1986 and have vacationed here continually since that time. After FINALLY raising 5 children we purchased Ekhai 17C and completely renovated the condo which included the total demolition of the old kitchen and creating one which includes everything that a cook could want to prepare meals to be shared in the dining room...or better yet on the lanai.

We love the location in Wailea. Wailea has been carefully developed to provide all the amenities visitors want in a more relaxed and uncrowded atmosphere than what you'll find in the other parts of Maui.

This sunny side of Maui offers quick access to beaches, snorkeling, golf, tennis and the finest shopping on Maui at The Shops at Wailea.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy being able to wander the 35 acres of manicured grounds at Ekahi Village. The grounds keeping staff maintain the most beautiful landscaping of any condominium complex. You have four pools to choose from, but we usually go to the Beach Pavilion pool located adjacent to Keawakapu Beach. This lets us go to the beach whenever we like and it's only a one minute walk back through the Ekahi property gate to return to the pool! For snorkeling we go to Ulua beach also just a minute or two walk from the Beach Pavilion and its pool.

Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us and all it has to offer. It was perfect! We came to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and are very much looking forward to coming back again.

Wonderful stay- the property is everything could hope to find

  • 5 of 5

The listing was understated- it was even better than expected. The interior is tastefully furnished and well maintained. The living area is spacious and the kitchen had everything we needed. There was even a welcome basket waiting for us with some treats to start our stay. We were only a few minutes walk along a green space to get to a beach that stretched for miles. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a holiday in Maui.

Beautiful property, Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

John and Sandy have created a beautifully remodeled, comfortable place to enjoy Maui from. Their attention to detail is apparent in how it is taken care of. The location in Wailea is convenient to most of the island, and sunny when other areas are not. We appreciated a wonderful stay.

Perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5

We can't praise this lovely condo enough! It was everything one could desire -- ocean view, beautiful kitchen with top notch brand new appliances, well appointed and comfortable living room furniture, and a super terrific king bed. The trade winds were gently blowing during our stay and due to the way the condo is situated (amidst tropical foliage) we never had to run the AC, the ceiling fans and open windows at night were all we needed. The kitchen and tile shower were pristine clean and we will definitely rent this unit again! Thank you John and Sandy, for our stay and the handy little cooler with snacks!

Clean and updated. Great location!

  • 3 of 5

Unfortunately, this is a bottom floor unit with little insulation in the ceiling. There were 4 adults and a two year old above us in a 1 bedroom unit. The two year old started crying at 5 a.m. everyday and then we heard clomping , running, crying, chairs moving and general noise whenever they were there, including continued sliding of the deck screen door and banging of the screen front door.

We were sorry we experienced this problem, because otherwise this was a great place! If the unit above had been empty this would have been a 5 star.

Owner's Response: We’re sorry this happened during your stay Although in our 6 years of renting our condominium on VRBO we have had few problems with people staying in the condo above us, in a resort environment a crying child can be a problem. We had a child once in our condo whose crying caused a problem for the people staying in the unit above ours. The units are close together and with people having their doors and windows open noise can travel easily.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at Ekahi Village, and was definitely the nicest condo so far! Beautifully renovated, clean and organized with a lot of thoughtful touches and everything we needed. (except snorkel gear, which I'm guessing just gets wrecked, and is easy to rent) The lanai is nicely shaded for a lot of the day and private with a partial ocean view. The king bed is comfortable and the AC great when needed; fans keep a nice coolness most of the time though. The complex itself is among the nicest we've stayed at - it is not 'Wailea fancy', and has a really nice community feel with many guests who return every year. The grounds are beautiful, with tropical flowers everywhere. The beach is among the best of Maui and you can walk for miles between beaches connected by paths. The beach side pool and pavilion are fantastic and toasting the sunset from there seems to be a daily ritual welcomed by all. John and Sandy were great to deal with -you won't go wrong staying here and I hope we'll be back!

Ekahi 17C in beautiful Wailea, is a wonderful place to vacation. Located on the sunny south side of Maui, it offers some of the finest beaches in the world, world- class shopping at The Shops at Wailea & a wide variety of restaurants...all within walking distance of our condominium.

We especially enjoy the great beaches in the Wailea area. You can walk to Keawakapu beach directly adjacent to Ekahi Village's Beach Pavilion pool. Ulua beach which is about a two minute walk from the Beach Pavilion offers some of the finest snorkeling and scuba diving in Hawaii. Big Beach, one of Hawaii's largest beaches is a 10-15 minute drive.

Wailea offers 5 major golf courses, all with great views of the ocean. For tennis fans, the Wailea Tennis Club's 'Wimbeldon of the West' courts are less than a 5 minute drive.
