Remember to bring your own shampoo, conditioner and soap. There is soap in the kitchen and bathrooms but not for the showers. The washer and dryer will take awhile to finish so remember to allow for enough time. Overall a very pleasant stay and we loved it!!

The place is very nice, and we had a great time staying there. It is newly remodeled and has everything you need from kitchen amenities to beach chairs and an umbrella; all in good condition. The location is excellent – you can watch the sunset and whales on the horizon. You can easily walk to the Wailea Shops area, and it is a pleasant walk. Communication with the unit manager Laurie was very easy and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. Mahalo.

This property has everything you need to enjoy yourselves in Maui. DJ was a pleasure to work with. The view is spectacular! A bit of road noise from time to time however, after a while it turns into white noise. Sometimes the birds singing are louder than the traffic. Property was clean and instructions were spot on. The new split A/C worked like a charm. Closet storage is abundant and there are plenty of built ins and shelving units for all your stuff.

Fifth stay at this property with plans to continue annual visits. This unit contains everything to make the stay comfortable and relaxing. Always well stocked with kitchenware beach equipment and supplies. Lanai provides fantastic views of the ocean and West Maui. Great whale watching. The resort is exceptionally well set up with amenities such as the swimming, pool, and the barbeque areas. We have stayed at several resorts in Maui but this resort and this unit will continue to be our favorite.

Great unit at a nice location in Wailea, easy access to the highway and shopping/restaurants. The listing undersold the view, in my opinion - we watched several groups of whales during every meal on the lanai, and the sunsets were amazing. We only had a brief interaction with the host about a minor issue, and they were responsive and professional.

A very nice unit with spectacular views. Kitchen was extremely well stocked. Location is great, easy walking distance to the Shops at Wailea. We had no issues during our stay. As other reviewers have mentioned, there can be some noise from the shopping area below, particularly the garbage truck at 3 or 4 a.m., but overall this is a wonderful spot. The one time we needed to contact the host they were very responsive. We would stay here again.

The unit is very comfortable (plenty of space, outdoor space very usable, kitchen is really stocked, comfortable beds with lots of pillows and extra blankets) and nicely located for walking to shops and restaurants but still feels secluded and quiet.

We loved our stay in Wailea at Hien’s condo! We loved sitting out on the large patio in the morning taking in the gorgeous view of the ocean. It was whale season and we could see them jumping out of the water! Coffee shops, restaurants and beaches are a 1-10 min walk away which was very convenient. Hien provided great lists of restaurants and things to do in the area and was always quick to respond with any questions we had. The king beds in the bedrooms worked out great and were comfy. We used the beach chairs, toys and towels provided, and the kitchen was well stocked. There was a big Kleenex box in every bathroom along with plenty of toilet paper which I always appreciate! We would definitely stay at this condo again!

Private full views of ocean from living room, dining area, kitchen, master bedroom, master bathroom! All the comforts of home, with terrific TVs and very fully equipped kitchen. Wailea Shops, Beach down the hill a short walk. Even closer coffee, Farmers' Market (Tuesday Mornings), golf, restaurants and more. Top it off with Raquel who manages the condo and takes great care of everything. Happily, we will be back next year!

Wailea Ekolu is the perfect place to spend a Maui vacation. Close to all Maui has to offer but in a very peaceful environment. It’s so relaxing to sit on the lanai to watch whales and enjoy amazing sunsets. Easy walking to beaches, coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping centers. Great and helpful communication from the host. We just left and can’t wait to come back!

This is a nicely decorated and superbly supplied condo in a great location and we would stay there again. We did notice a few items that need attention: The fan/light over the dining table did not work, the lanai door track needs lubrication and cleaning, the sunshades on the lanai are inoperable, the chest of drawers in the bedroom are not useable as the drawers cannot be opened and closed easily, the dining room chair seats are sprung and uncomfortable to sit in, the bathroom mats are worn and a color that makes it impossible to tell if dirty. We chose to remove them.

Having a closet stocked with beach towels, toys, and bogie boards was a nice bonus for our kids. If we are lucky enough to return to south Maui in the future we will definitely seek out 503.

Wailea is fantastic, but expensive, and this complex and condo represent an outstanding value for families! The owner is fantastic and ultra-quick to respond to any question and the unit is clean, comfortable and the deck outside has a wonderful ocean view, great for whale watching (with binoculars), and the location is walkable to Wailea Village (great coffee shop, Italian restaurant and others great shops), The Shops at Wailea, as well as the adjacent, fantastic, grocery store and of course, Wailea beach.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We decided after the tragic event in Lahaina that we wanted to go back to support Maui. While looking for a place to stay we came acroos this rental that mentioned they support the Lahaina too. The condo is as the pictures represent. Beautifully remodel and very comfortable to stay in. The view is just what we were looking for! We were able to whale watch for the lanai. Perfect time of year to do so. The company that represents this unit is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. We would gladly stay here again. Prayers to Lahaina and Maui for a hopeful recovery!! In regards to giving stars..5 for everything accept the amenities like toiletry products, paper goods and spices. Bare minimum.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We highly recommend this gem in Wailea. The location couldn’t be better - it felt quite private and we had a beautiful sweeping view across the golf course to the ocean. Close to restaurants, shops, amenities, golf courses and the beautiful ocean walk. Spectacular sunsets every night from the lanai. The unit was very clean and well-stocked - there really wasn’t anything we lacked. The beds were comfortable and we so enjoyed being able to leave the patio doors open to our bedroom each night so we could hear the ocean and birds and enjoy the beautiful smells of Hawaii. The unit was very clean and well cared for. The furnishings are tastefully Hawaiian. The management company and owner were great to deal with. We loved our 18 day stay and were sad to leave. We will definitely come back next year.

Outstanding condo in a great location. Overlooking the first green of Waileas old blue golf course, beyond that great views of the ocean and Molokini, featuring nightly sunsets from the lanais. It’s a super afternoon tanning spot, bring sunscreen along with binoculars while watching the boats and whales. The nearby pool area was clean with a good mix of shade and sun. Inside, the condo is extremely comfortable and provided lots of room for the two of us. Appliances all seemed to be brand new and worked great. Like the photos show, it’s nicely furnished and decorated. A good bed and two roomy bathrooms. Strong wifi, lots of tv options including Netflix. Ekolu village itself is well maintained and landscaped. Short drive to the tremendous wailea boardwalk and many good but pricey shops and restaurants. Ten great days for us!

My family and I had an absolutely wonderful stay in this condo over the holidays. The condo is immaculately clean and has been beautifully redone. Mornings on the lanai are so peaceful with stunning views over the ocean as the sun comes up. The complex is walkable to the resorts, shops and local farmers market on Tuesday mornings. Beth is a fantastic host and has clearly poured a lot of care into this condo. We will definitely plan to book again in the future!!

We were very impressed with this condo. It had nice furniture, great A/C, beautiful kitchen and the appliances, dishes and utensils were all top of the line. The lanai was our favorite as it had a beautiful view including sunsets and nice furniture. The owners also provide beach chairs, umbrella and cooler for the beach which we used a lot. They also had nice touches such as a bluetooth speaker, extra pillows, and a nice TV which was also great. Be sure to bring a pair of binoculars for whale watching. We will definitely book this again.

Unfortunately this unit is very tired. Minimal kitchen equipment and what was there has been there for 30 years. You will be gifted 3 rolls of TP, 1 roll of paper towels. For what they charge the owner should be ashamed of the amenities they provide. On a positive note the property mgr was on all our correspondents and request in a very timely manner.
