Area description
Along Maui's spectacularly scenic southern coastline, Wailea stands out like an oasis. Lush, green and meticulously manicured, Wailea is the premier resort area on Maui, consistently voted the "Best Island in the World," by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler Magazine. With splendid weather, five heavenly beaches, clear water and outstanding views of Molokini and Kaho'olawe, Wailea is the perfect destination for a Hawaii beach vacation. This affluent resort is home to the finest Maui golf courses, high-end boutiques, spas, art galleries and celebrity restaurants. The 1.5-mile Wailea Beach Walk is the best way to explore Wailea's resort coast and watch humpback whales during the winter season. Just 4 miles south of Wailea, the manicured coast changes over to the natural, untouched landscape of Makena with Oneloa Big Beach, Ahihi Kinau Nature Preserve and La Perouse Bay.

Mostly good, Awful customer service

We enjoyed the view from the windows and the convenient location. However, their utility is dysfunctional. Laundry dryer was old and we had to turn 4 timed to dry one load. The most unfortunate thing was that a refrigerator in the kitchen was broken on the second day. They had to change motherboard next day. Meanwhile, food we stored inside of the refrigerator was going bad and my husband got a food poisoning. He was very sick for several days and that changed our plans to say the least. We talked to the office but they treated us with scorn saying "we can't do anything for that". If their response was sincere we could have felt better and we would have recommended this place to our friends.

The sun rise at Haleakala was beautiful. You'll see a different world if you hike around on top of the mountain. It is very cold, so taking warm clothes is a good idea.

Very big and spacious!

The location is right around the corner from the shops and Wailea. Beautiful panoramic view of the ocean and the garden. We were comp'd a larger condo than we had requested :) Location has 2 pools, however, no hot tub. Minutes away from golfing venues, shopping, groceries, dining and beaches! We were a little lost with regards to checking in, you need to check in at the Destination Resorts shop located on the bottom floor of the shops at wailea.

My best vacation yet

The condominium that I received was actually a two-story townhouse with two bedrooms. I was blown away by the view and the value. The place was fully furnished and stocked with dishes. It was slightly dated, but for what I paid I can't complain at all. The only bad thing was the small hawaiian ants that kept showing up. If you want an amazing condo in the best part of Maui (Wailea) then Ekolu Village is for you. Don't expect great service though. They clean once every three days and the staff is actually not on the property. You are renting someone's second home. It is a wonderful retreat, but without room service. I want to give them 4.5 stars.

If you are going to get a condo, go to Safeway and get groceries. You will save a lot of money because entrees at the nice restaraunts (Lahaina Grill is amazing) are aound $40. The Fish Market in Kaanapali has the best fresh fish on the island.

Wailea Ekolu Village is great!

The room we had was so nice. The balcony overlooked a golf course with the ocean behind it. At Wailea Ekolu Village you are staying in a condo, so parking is better and the experience is more private. No crowds or elevators to deal with at a hotel. It was better than we could off ever expected.

Go to the Safeway and stock up on some breakfast food so you can enjoy waking up and cooking a pot of coffee and some breakfast.
