Ekahi Village 40A


Given the pandemic, we feel it is important we lead with health and safety information. In brief, our team has spent days reviewing the guidance and facts and we have added several practices to ensure the health and safety of our guests, our employees, and ourselves. These practices include full day gaps between stays, enhanced deep-cleaning procedures, and full unit disinfection of all hard services using a non-toxic cleaner. More details are below…thank you for considering sharing our properly-licensed and legal home! Welcome to our little piece of paradise in a completely remodeled, fully furnished, ground floor unit! Our home is located in Wailea Ekahi, one of the few Kihei and Wailea properties located directly on the beach; no need to cross a road or even sidewalk! Our private corner unit is in immaculate condition, tastefully appointed, and looks out upon a lush, well-maintained rolling green lawn. It is surrounded by fragrant plantings and hedges which add to our unit's privacy. 40A is removed from the street, looks out onto an open space, and is undoubtedly one of the most quiet units in Ekahi. Island-style comfort awaits inside with cooling fans in every room, tasteful decorations, a king bed in the master, sheltered back lanai for relaxing, and a beautiful, spacious kitchen. We have installed brand-new appliances and high-end fixtures throughout. To smooth check-in and ensure you relax after a long flight, we have keyless access and ensure the unit is squeaky clean before your arrival. Should you desire to leave 40A, stroll around the corner and down the Ekahi greenbelt. Walking past beautiful plantings and fruit trees, in five minutes you will come to the oceanfront family pool. Walk through the pool and out the private exit to Keawakapu Beach (one of the best on Maui) without crossing any roads. The sheltered water is perfect for littles but also provides great boogie and body surfing when the breeze comes up in the afternoon. Build sand castles, run/walk the mile of beach, or snorkel around the lava outcroppings. If you ever get enough beach and sunshine, retire to the pool and brand-new shaded pavilion, featuring a full kitchen and BBQ area in addition to restrooms and showers. The pavilion also provides an amazing perch over Keawakapu beach to watch the sunset and whales frolicking offshore between November and March. End your day with a walk back up the greenspace to your unit, which we keep scrupulously cleaned and maintained. We spend a few weeks a year here and stay on top of all maintenance items; if something breaks or goes missing between visits, we will schedule it to be fixed as soon as you notify us. 40A is stocked with everything you need for a comfy stay including boogie boards, beach towels and chairs, linens, utensils and cooking equipment, gas BBQ, TVs, and WiFi. 40A accommodates up to 4 guests with a sleeper sofa and twin Murphy bed in the living room. Should your interests fall elsewhere, Ekahi also offers tennis, shuffleboard, paddle tennis, and three quiet lounging pools (one just steps away). The high-end shops, hotels, and restaurants of Wailea are within walking distance along the beach or main road, and the funky shops, eateries, and grocery stores of Kihei are less than a 10 minute drive away. Protecting health and safety is our primary concern at this time. We have worked with our cleaning and maintenance crews as well as local community officials and other hosts to identify the best practices to protect the health of everyone who has a stake in 40A. These practices include: - Implementing 24-hour minimum gaps between stays to protect the cleaning personnel and subsequent guests - Removing non-essential porous items (apologies if the shelves and beds look a little bare :) - Identifying an environmentally- and human-friendly disinfection agent with superior effectiveness against COVID - Enhancing cleaning protocols to include disinfecting all tableware and linens in the unit between guests - Disinfecting all hard surfaces in the unit between guests Our cleaning team has worked hard to identify and implement all applicable best practices identified by the County of Maui, the CDC, VRBO/Airbnb, and the local hospitality industry. We think you will recognize and appreciate the superior efforts they have made and cleanliness that they have achieved. Registration Number: GE-157-716-5824-01, TA-15
