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).

This was our first time in Maui and we had a fabulous time on the island but most importantly we were very comfortable at Wailea Ekahi Village. The one minor irritation was the construction but that couldn’t be helped.

grounds are beautiful. Access to beach is problematic. More information should be provided to guests regarding access to amenities. Our Condo was very nice, but a little bit of upkeep is needed. New rugs, and and new cook top would be advisable

We were pleasantly surprised by how close it was to the beach, pools, restaurants and shopping. The accommodations were more than adequate and we were quite comfortable in our room. We loved the gas grill on the private lanai and the full size refrigerator to keep groceries. We recently stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua and this was a way better deal and just as comfortable. The beach here is stunning and a joy to walk on barefoot after a cup of coffee early in the morning.

Beautiful gardens. Love the Wailea area, but missed not having a bar and restaurant within close proximity for breakfast, lunch, and cocktails. Beach is great for sunsets and wading. Pools are a little small and there are no directions/maps as to how to get to them if they are not within your sight. I'm sure condo's are all furnished and decorated differently. Ours was very "minimalist".

Just know beach view can be very very far away!!! That being said David and Destination Residence was amazing to work with and he seriously went above and beyond what he had to do!

We were not expecting to be so far away from the beach. Beach view was there, but a very long way from the beach. We contacted Destination Residence the following morning and David went to work to find us a better beach location. We then moved to Wailea Elua Village and were beyond pleased! A fabulous condo beach front! David went above and beyond our expections! I cannot tell you how much time and effort he put into finding the right condo for us. Thank you David, you recued our vacation and we will diffently work with him again when planning our next vacation!

Nice condo, very quiet and spacious, but the kitchen and bathroom are outdated. The place was clean. A short walk to the beach. Staffs were very friendly and helpful.

Ekahi Village was the best choice we could have make! At first we were welcomed by the staff with tropical juice. They were all very nice and helpful. They were ready to solve all of our problems and answered all questions. The place was quiet and peaceful. The apartment itself was very big. Our building was located nearby the street but we did not hear any noises. The pool and beach were about 5 min walk, the resort has a private access so it's safe and not so crowded. As we were walking around, I think that Ekahi Village was the most beautiful place in that area. The gardens were spectacular and if you are looking for some luxurious place without a hotel vibe, it is the best place.
