Tucked into the lush sloping hillside above Keawakapu Beach (which translates to "forbidden cove") sits the Wailea Ekahi Village condo resort. The property spans across 34 acres overlooking the shore, with most units a five- to 10-minute walk from the resort's private, gated entrance to the beach.

“This sparkling stretch of sand is a showstopper” (Lonely Planet) and the name suits Keawakapu well -- the cove is a hidden gem buried amid Maui’s miles upon miles of coastline. It is less crowded and quieter than the area’s main beaches, with the “perfect angle” (Travel + Leisure) for spectacular sunset views.

Each condo is one of a kind, but all come completely furnished with a private lanai, in-unit washer/dryer and a fully equipped kitchen stocked with home-away-from-home essentials: cookware, utensils, paper towels and even laundry detergent. A complimentary concierge service is available seven days a week to help guests maximize their island time by arranging pre-arrival grocery delivery or scheduling whale-watching trips, scuba gear rentals and surfing lessons.

Hotel-style amenities are plentiful, with four outdoor swimming pools, complimentary beach towels and a beachfront pavilion that has barbecue grills, restrooms and a full kitchen (including a microwave, stove and refrigerator so you never have to leave the sand). Each condo includes complimentary Wi-Fi, and parking and phone calls are also free.

We liked the Wailea Ekahi Village. Nice beach, pool and attractive landscaping. We will be more picky about the unit location next time.
Other Comments
Unit 35D was a disappointment. We paid extra for ocean-view and it was at the back of the property far from the beach. Too much road noise and no comfortable seating. Living room had two uncomfortable sofa beds. I can see the need for one but they were at an angle to one another so only one could be used at a time. One of them should be replaced with two lounge chairs for watching TV.

We enjoyed the wonderful landscaping, the private beach, the new towels offered each day, the quiet and privacy. Beautifully appointed condo.
Other Comments
There were tiny little bugs infesting the condominium they were on the walls around the light switches and especially seem to congregate in the sinks. They did have Bates out but apparently that isn’t working, therefore we recommend a professional exterminator be brought in. Also it would be helpful to note for anyone staying there that there is virtually nothing left behind from the people before, such as space is condiments oil and such. Also we were given to believe that we would get $50 off for a spa experience and six Five dollars for Ruth Chris. That turned out to be several small vouchers for several different places.

Amazing - everything. From the moment we got there, the service, the interaction with the staff, the unit was impecable, the view, unexpectedly outstanding..... the location was the best, what else? If we could lock in the price I would come every year. Absolutely loved it. Thank you so very much!!

Good location, grounds well-kept. Loved pool/covered pavilion area next to the beach.
Other Comments
Unit 9A needs remodeling: carpet was stained and worn; Drapes in living room were sagging and worn; old Formica countertops in kitchen; old tile and icky grout in bathroom. Had noisy neighbors above the first 3 nights. Fortunately, they left, so four days/nights of quiet.
