About John Russell & Mike Imler

Ekahi 1C is one of three Ekahi condos 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, 1C in December of 2013 and most recently 5D in December 2015. We are especially committed to having the most well stocked units 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.

Great place in an amazing location on Maui

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time visiting Maui, Hawaii and we could not have selected a better place to stay for our vacation. When we arrived we found the condo was easy to access, very clean, well stocked, and provided more than enough room and a relaxing and comfortable environment for our family of four (my wife and our two boys aged 5 and 7). Mike and John and the local team provided an amazing level of response and service from start to end that definitely enhanced our experience, and we also found the VRBO experience simple and easy to use. Ekahi Village is also an immaculate, tropical and lush property which I'm certain you will not regret and thoroughly enjoy. We spent 10 nights here and it really felt like our home on the island, we recall every day we spent here fondly and without hesitation recommend this unit and we look forward to coming back again.

Enjoyable stay at this well-equipped condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful trip to Maui and especially appreciated the convenience and amenities that this unit offered. We traveled with our 2 boys, ages 5 and 8, and had ample room to spread out. I wanted a ground floor unit for its accessibility (for hauling luggage, gear, kids, groceries) and I didn't have to worry that the boys would make too much overhead noise. The building itself is older, but this particular unit has been remodeled and updated. The kitchen had all of the basic supplies (enough dishes, utensils, pots and pans) and we were able to eat several meals in. The twin air mattress and fold out ottoman were perfect for the kids. We were able to put the kids to bed in the master bedroom and then hang out in the main living area. The bathroom is between the master and living area and has the vanity outside the toilet/bath area. The toilet/shower area is nicely remodeled but a little tight. We could have used an additional towel bar as there is only enough room to accommodate 2 towels. We were able to hang extra towels and clothes in the nearby closet. We also appreciated the safe for storing valuables while out and about. The unit is well stocked with beach equipment and we made good use of the chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie boards, and snorkel fins. With the warm weather and frequent swimming, it was so convenient to have a washer and dryer at our disposal. You can pack lighter and always have a dry swimsuit ready. Some notes about the swimming: there are (I think) 4 pools at the Ekahi, 3 of which are designated quiet pools and discourage kid use. One of these is a very short walk from the unit. The 4th pool, located down a hill near the beach, is the main one and allows kids. Our kids were a little disappointed with this pool. The pool shape can make it seem small if it gets crowded. The main complaint from the kids was that the workers are very strict about not allowing any toys in the pool-- float toys (except life vests and water wings), balls, rings. Fortunately, there is beach access from the pool area and we were able to enjoy boogie boarding, body surfing, and building sand castles. The water was relatively calm and we were able to do some snorkeling a little ways down in front of the Andaz resort. Overall, we definitely recommend this unit. The owners were easy to contact and all transactions were handled professionally and promptly.

Relaxing in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how lovely it was to stay in this condo! The upgrades, with granite countertops and tile are very well done. Everything was sparkling clean. The location is close to the beach and steps away from a very pleasant "quiet pool." The grounds here are so well kept and lush. The beach nearby is large and uncrowded. In addition, the owners were super helpful when we left an item behind, and mailed it to us promptly. That's going above and beyond!

Condo in good shape overall, upgrades raise its appeal

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this unit for 10 nights, and had the opportunity to see other units nearby because some family stayed in Ekahi Village as well. We really appreciated the quick responses from the owners who were very professional, yet down to earth. We had a great time on the island and staying at this property was a nice compliment to this. The kitchen seems to be the highlight, as it appeared newly remodeled. The layout is nice and open while the bedroom has some privacy from the rest of the condo. The kids slept soundly on the pull out couch. We really liked the ease of using the lanai and exiting out the lanai to the pool/beach, which is a 5 minute walk. In terms of family (children), the unit is mostly kid friendly, except for the all glass dining table. Our only concern worth noting is the bed, which was not very comfortable. Some other minor things we would change but nothing to deter us, and would not prevent us from renting this property again. Thanks to Mike and John.

Great location and fully equipped unit

  • 5 of 5

Wailea is one of the best places for families on Maui and you can't go wrong pretty much anywhere in the Ekahi-Village. My family and I stayed in this unit for almost two weeks (two adults, two children under 5) over Christmas/New Years. It is a great unit for couples and families just like ours. The unit is very well equipped with everything you would need for your stay (from extra towels, to cooking, to sleeping, to having fun at the beach). Location is close to one of the pools and a short walk to the Ekahi beach. There's also easy walking access to the shops and other local beaches. Owners were very responsive as well which was appreciated. Again, I highly recommend this unit and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again for a vacation!
