The view was great. Great location. Plenty of places to shop.
The weather was so perfect and the view was the most relaxing and beautiful. Maui will always be a special place. No place no earth is as great! Love the sunsets, beaches, and so many places to see. Everyone should go to Maui while they can still enjoy the Crater, great dining, and total enjoyment. Going on a Whale watch and seeing the look on a young person's face when they see a whale. Pure joy!!
This particular unit is in need of work. AC unit in bedroom does not work at all. Maint. man said there was nothing they could do. Wood on front of cabinets splitting in two. Countertop starting to buckle, very old. Electrical outlet in bathroom doesn't work. Thought headboard on bed might hit me in head during the night, not affixed to bed. Rollers on sliding glass door stripped making it difficult to go in and out. The view was great! Pool and grounds were well maintained.
The unit was fine for size, but felt we had stepped back in time. Dirty Shag Carpet and very old beds and furniture. Had a musty smell which affected our sinus. Should have asked to be relocated to another unit.
Wailea is a great place to relax and a great base for exploring Maui. There is a great variety of beaches, shops and restaurants that are close and easy to get to. Pros: Our condo was very comfortable and the view was better than we expected. It was well situated, in close proximity to beaches, shops, restaurants, etc. Cons: There was no housekeeping during our 6 day visit, although it was advertized. My wife and I slept very comfortably, but our children found the beds in the second bedroom rather uncomfortable. There were a few minor issues with items that have not been maintained - loose door hinge, entry light not working, misaligned door on washer/dryer closet, dishwasher latch.
Large, Clean, spaceious, with views of ocean. Just sat on porch and watch the whales, talked and watch the sun sets. Central to most activities and good dining. Great value for the price.
Our check-in at the Ekolu Village was very easy. Unfortunately, we received an upgraded room that was a little larger and also dingy. The view was great and there was a lot of space, but the decor was dated and not what we expected. Luckily, they accomodaed us the next day and moved us into a smaller unit, still a very good view--but nicely decorated and much more to our liking and a better internet connection. The village is not close to the beach, but we like to drive to different beaches, so this isn't a problem for us. Overall, we had a great time thanks to the different room.
Very nice facilities in great location on Maui. As advertised. Accommodating staff.
EXCEPTIONAL IN EVERY WAY. ESPECIALLY ENJOYED THE PEACE AND SERENITY OF THE EARLY MORNING HRS ON THE DECK. ALL IN ALL A PERFECT SETTING. THE PURPOSE OF OUR TRIP WAS TO ATTEND A WEDDING. WOULD CONSIDER A RETURN TRIP FOR A MORE IN DEPTH SIGHT SEEING. WOULD LIKE TO SEE A MOP IN THE CONDO SO THAT WE MAY CLEAN UP A LITTLE MORE AFTER OURSELVES.
Well equipped condo with excellent view of golf course and ocean. Private lanai and two bathrooms, lots of room!
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 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.
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.
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.
Good location and accessible to many beaches and restaurants.
