Family Vacation

Mike M. from Alabny, OR
Get rental. All the amenities necessary to comfortably accommodate our family of 4. Great location, close to beach, shops, dinning and ocean front walking path.

Mahalo, so happy to hear. We hope to see you again!
Family stay with teenagers
Apr, 2023
A guest from LEDYARD, CT
We had a great stay. Rental was clean and beds comfortable. Enjoyed the provided beach chairs, beach towels and toys. Hotel pool was also nice and a short walk from the rental. Everything was as described. We cooked breakfast and a couple of dinners in the kitchen, which was fine. We had enough dishes, pots and pans for a family of six. I did wash some of the dishes before I used them just because they seemed to have sat in the cupboard unused, but not dirty. The nonstick fry pan could be replaced and some of the beach towels. Used the washer and dryer units, too. Everything worked well. We didn't use the AC. The weather was so nice during our stay, just having the fans on was lovely. The front door was tricky to open and my son who arrived earlier than the rest of the group, couldn't get it to open. It was after office hours so there was no one to reach with issues. He walked to the pizza place and when he came back later was able to open the door. Otherwise, check-in was very easy. I appreciated the email with clear instructions prior to our arrival. Rental was easy to find. Walked to the shops. The beach is a little far for walking, but we drove to many different beaches while on the island, so that didn't matter for our group. We wanted to stay somewhere quiet and beautiful and that's exactly what we enjoyed. Thank you.

We so appreciate you taking the time to reply and will look into the pans and beach towels! Happy to hear you enjoyed your time and hope you visit again. Mahalo!
Great location

This property is walking distance to Wailea beach and to the shop. The unit is equipped with all the essentials. It has a great view as well! Property is clean and pool onsite was warm. Great place to stay!

Joyce P. from San Diego, CA
Great location. Great view. Condo had everything you could possibly need. Furniture is a bit worn. Would be great if they updated & refreshed some items. As read in other rev, there is a bit of street/traffic noise as it’s right next to the main road.
Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. on 2023-02-21 18:13:26
Mahalo for taking the time to review your stay! Your feedback is much appreciated. We have completed an upholstery steam clean of all the furniture as well as a deep clean through out the condo. So glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. We hope to welcome you back in the future, mahalo nui!
Beautiful Ocean View
Dec, 2022
A guest from San Diego, CA
Loved our stay at this vacation rental. We loved relaxing on the lanai, but could also enjoy the beautiful ocean view from the living/dining room. You could enjoy sunset from the couch! Great location! Wailea beach is a 3 minute drive and has parking, but is also walkable if you wanted to. Highway is close by. Quick drive to Kihei, all South Maui beaches (loved Makena Beach), shopping and restaurants. Also, shopping and restaurants within a 5 minute walk.
Kitchen had everything we needed. My only disappointment was the pool wasn't heated, but kids had no problem jumping in and swimming. Totally recommend staying here.
Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. on 2022-12-27 14:26:53
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Wailea Ekolu #501 and hope your family made some wonderful memories while you were here. Mahalo for taking the time to write us a review. Aloha!

The view is incredible and we're so glad you enjoyed it! Mahalo for the review, a hui hou!
Amazing Views and Peaceful Stay
Oct, 2022
Krista K. from West End, Queensland
We unexpectedly had to change our travel plans and ended up booking Wailea Ekolu last-minute. Maui Rentals was so helpful; Michelle made the booking process so easy. And the condo itself was fantastic. Very clean and well stocked with kitchen supplies, towels, beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, etc. The sunset views from the Lanai were inspiring. The internet/phone line had a weird connection problem but Spectrum came out the next day and Maui Rentals offered to be present while the work was done. Again, so easy to deal with! If anything, the highway is a bit close and you'll hear some traffic noise, but it's easy access to the highway! A good trade-off in my mind. Thank you for allowing us to stay in this great property. We hope to come again some day.

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. The room was so convenient especially with the A/C throughout the condo. It was very spacious for our family and when guests came to visit.

vacation at Ekola 501

A guest from Portland, OR
The rental was lovely and very well equipped. Walking distance to the beach so no car needed! Also a lovely view and lanai for coffee in the morning. It is close to a major boulevard so traffic noise was noticeable, especially at the beginning and end of the day. There is also construction going on at nearby unit during the week- not sure how long that will be happening.

Thor M. from Tsawwassen, BRC
We spent 3 weeks in Ekolu 501 - it is an exceptional location with a great view from the lanai!The property has everything you need and is perfect for 4 people - lots of room. The fridge is in need of some repair( water on demand & ice maker) which we reported and the management company was very responsive. Also low on wine glasses so we bought a set of 4 and left them.
Beautiful View and private patio with lawn
Oct, 2021
A guest from Aurora, OR
Overall the condo was great. It was very well equipped in the kitchen and bathrooms. Plenty of towels and beach towels . Lots of beach equipment but 2 of the beach were very worn and straps were broken .The view is amazing and the private patio with a small lawn area was very nice.
We had a few maintenance issues. The master bathtub was plugged for most of our stay. The ice maker on the fridge didn’t work and there were numerous pests inside the house , maybe time for an exterminator.
The beds were comfortable and soft sheets. Everything was clean when we arrived. The pool was nice and not too far. It is a bit of a walk to the beach especially if hauling chairs and such.
5 Days and 4 Nights
Oct, 2021
Nicholas M. from Castro Valley, CA
We stayed here with a group of 5 in September. It was a bit tricky finding the property with our GPS but we eventually found it. Tip: if you’re coming from the Wailea Shops shopping center you turn right on Wailea Ike Pl after the entrance to the Wailea Village shopping center. You will see a sign leading to Buildings 1-5. Our stay was wonderful. The view from the back patio is pretty amazing and the pictures from the website didn’t really do it justice. There is A/C in all the bedrooms that gets the job done and there is a washer and dryer in the unit for dirty/wet clothes. Parking is also just outside the unit. It was a great stay and I would definitely come back.
Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. on 2021-10-15 18:50:25
They say pictures are worth a thousand words, but the truth is that in-person is always better! Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, and hope you made some amazing memories. Mahalo
Would Stay Again (Happily)
Sep, 2021
Alfonza H. from Mary Esther, FL
I thoroughly enjoyed this destination and would re-book for a future visit to Maui. The unit shows some wear, but it is clearly evident it has been modernized across many areas/fixtures/technology, adding to a pleasant and comfortable stay. The view out back from the unit cannot be matched. There is a nice and natural alarm clock around 6:30a or 7:00a with the local wildlife singing and welcoming you into your day.

For the beachgoing, there is a healthy amount of gear left behind by the owner/property management company and/or a nice guest paying it forward (also some detergents, insect repellants, etc.).

Could not figure out the ice maker for the fridge/freezer, but the kitchen overall was beyond well stocked with supplies if needed.

I did have a few issues with response times for a few questions I had during the stay and am still awaiting a follow-up about something I left behind, but this unit was great and I will hopefully return.
Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. on 2021-09-23 18:59:10
Aloha, So glad you enjoyed your stay at Wailea Ekolu! It really is beautiful and Maui cannot be matched. We'll double check on those lost items for you and get back to you right away. Mahalo for taking the time to write a thorough review. We'd happily have you again in the future!

Great Ocean View Condo
Aug, 2021
A guest from SAN GABRIEL, CA
The Condo was in a great location, near the Wailea Shops and resorts with many food and shopping options. There is a grocery store that is just 2 min away by car. We enjoyed the Wailea golf course which is walking distance from the condo. The view of the ocean and Molokini from the lanai is unbeatable!

Pro - Good sized rooms, dual suites with a bathroom in each room for privacy. Spacious living area and fully-stocked kitchen. We cooked everyday and hardly had to buy anything besides the food itself. Outdoor BBQ was very easy to use and Lanai area attached to an open grassy area. AC in living room was useful and cooled effectively. TV and internet worked great.

Areas of Improvement: Consider using keyless entry as the single key for the front door was hard to keep track of/could be lost easily resulting in an additional charge for guests. Found a few roaches (which is normal for a ground-level unit in Hawaii) and could've used some indoor insect spray to keep them away. AC in the bedroom facing the ocean didn't work that well to cool the room. Since we stayed for a week, could use more than 2 trash bags for a smallish trash can in the kitchen. Overall, these are just minor things that can hopefully make the experience even more enjoyable for others.
Great location, unit and amenities

A guest from REDMOND, WA
This is a great location in the quieter, relaxing part of Maui while still walking distance to The Shops at Wailea and nearby beaches. The unit had more amenities than we expected (fully stocked kitchen, beach toys and gear, etc.)
Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. on 2021-08-17 20:26:25
Wailea is a beautiful area. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay.

Wailea Ekolu 501
Jun, 2021
Chester T. from Los Angeles, CA
Whenever we travel to Maui, we always stay at Wailea Ekolu Village due to its close proximity to beaches, resorts, restaurants and shopping. Though this unit may not be the most updated, it was very clean, comfortable, and well appointed with all the amenities you will need for your stay. Not to mention, the view is phenomenal. There was a little bit of road noise, especially in the second bedroom, but otherwise very quite and private. We felt this unit is a great value and would definitely stay there again.
What a great place to enjoy Wailea
May, 2021
Carole E. from Plymouth, MN
Ekolu 501 was beautiful and the complex well maintained and landscaped, giving the entire area a welcoming and peaceful feeling. The location was outstanding. We could walk to shops, bars and restaurants. I especially enjoyed the variety of birds that visited. The only drawback was that the tenant upstairs could be heard walking about.
Lovely home

A guest from SACRAMENTO, CA
The business aspects went as easily as possible, check-in was via a lock box. The unit is well supplied and beautifully furnished. It has the feel of a well loved family home. We had a pretty tabby cat join us for most of the time.

Great location a couple blocks from the beach and Shops at Wailea. Comfortably slept 3 and 4 would have been comfortable too. Nice kitchen and electric grill. Great ocean view. Check-in/out was a breeze. The condo is nicely finished and clean. Is it finished 'over the top', no but definitely nice enough for most. Would definitely look at renting it again next year.

Great stay in Wailea
Aug, 2018
Melinda L. from Palm Desert, CA
This was a nice, spacious and well kept condo in a convenient location. The beds were comfortable and there was enough space and furniture for our family of four to hang out together and watch movies and play games in the evening. Although we had neighbors around us, this condo felt very private. Overall it was a good stay. The only two negatives were we could hear the road noise from our co do. We weren’t around during the day so it didn’t matter but at night it got pretty loud. Also prepare to buy everything because there is literally nothing in the kitchen. When we stay in condos there will often be things like olive oil and a few basic spices. There wasn’t even salt and pepper. It would be nice to have a basic supply of those things so you don’t have to buy everything if you want to cook at home. I worked with the property management company prior to our arrival and they were incredibly helpful. Really nice staff!

Walking distance to the shops at Wailea, 5 minutes. Longer walk to the beach, drove most mornings with so much to carry. Also less than 5 minutes to one of the best beaches on the island with excellent snorkeling.

Unit was clean and in good condition.
Wonderful family trip!

Damon L. from Mukilteo, WA
I was very impressed with this condo. You can look out and see the water from virtually all the rooms (except the 2nd bedroom) and it appears much closer in person than what the pictured depict. The bathrooms have been updated and they have thought of every amenity you might need. I love to cook and the kitchen is extremely well equipped! There are 3 air conditioners so one in every room. It was very hot during our stay and we were very comfortable with the A/C. We walked to the Shops at Wailea (there's a nice general store there to get freshly made poke!) and also to the beaches. Getting to Kihei was a breeze. Very clean condo and would definitely return and request this specific unit....especially for the price!
Just the Best!

Ken J. from headingley, MB
Rental was fantastic although we felt like it could have been a little better maintained, during our stay no one came to maintain the outside property thus leaving fallen leaves and grass uncut and picked up. The propert itself was great, it had everything we needed and more! The views from the lanai were remarkable and it was so nice and quiet.

Peter S. from Piermont, NY
The property was as advertised. It's quiet and the views are excellent. It great sitting on the lanai eating breakfast and watching the tour boats travelling to Molokini and also watching the spectacular sunsets. The only glitch we had was the keypad was missing and we had to call the rental agent who came promptly we a set of keys.
Maui rental, perfect location and amazing view!

Genevieve M. from Wellington, Wellington
Fantastic! The location was ideal only a short walk to the beach and shops. If we didn't feel like going to the beach the pool was close and usually always empty. The outdoor area was great, got heaps of sun.
What a great view and a great place!!!!

Marina B. from San Jose, California
This is a very nice property with an amazing view. Everything you need away from home was available. The place was clean, comfortable, well stocked. We would love to come back.
The management company was a pleasure to deal with. We will for sure recommend this place and would love to stay there again.
Thank you.

Christina V. from Watertown, WI
What a treat! The condo was perfect. It was stocked with everything you could want in a vacation getaway! Kitchen utensils and appliances, beach gear, tons of towels. The unit looked just like the pictures. Very clean with an amazing view. Quiet neighborhood. The only complaint would be the road noise in the one bedroom. There was construction going on and the main road is well traveled. We closed the windows and ran the AC at night and that was fine. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
