"Hoʻokipa" at Wailea Ekolu Reviews
Top notch location and place!
Michael, California, May 2021
Wonderful location, beautiful sunsets and close to shops and grocery stores. The kitchen has everything and Laurie put out all the smaller amenities that everyone seems to forget when traveling. Top notch location and place. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Maui.
Definitely worth a repeat visit!
Laura, Arizona, May 2021
Laurie's condo is situated beautifully for views and privacy. The condo is well equipped for your stay. I managed without a car very comfortably. I used uber to and from the airport, with a stop at Safeway for some supplies. A coffee shop for breakfast and lunch is just around the corner and Shops at Wailea had enough variety for anything else I needed. I walked to many different beaches from the condo, within 1/2 mile to 2 miles. It was very comfortable and clean with thoughtful touches. Definitely worth a repeat visit
Excellent location and the view is spectacular!

Excellent location and the view is spectacular! Wailea Ekolu #3 is located close to shopping, beaches and many restaurants. The condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay. I cook a lot on vacation due to dietary challenges and I had everything I needed to create a variety of meals. The condo complex is on beautiful mature grounds and I found this condo location to be private and peaceful. It's a quiet comfortable place to stay! We will return many times!
Location & View are Spectacular!

I loved staying at Laurie and Glenn's place so much that I want to keep it a secret so there's a better chance of it being available when I can come back. The location and view are spectacular, the condo itself is modern and clean, and the instructions provided answer any questions you may have while you're there. I've stayed at many rentals and this one may be the best.
I highly recommend this condo!

I have stayed at Wailea Ekolu #3 four separate times. It is updated, clean, comfortable and well-stocked with everything you need for your perfect vacation. The Owners are the perfect hosts, and are helpful, responsive and most of all - nice and friendly! They ensure you will have the best vacation possible. The view from the lanai is perfect for sunset-watching, too. There are a lot of places to stay on Maui, and I have stayed at many of them - and this is by far my favorite. It’s perfect if you want resort amenities without the crowds, with all the comforts of home. I highly recommend this condo!
No better place to stay!
Lori, Washington, November 2020
Excellent! Great communication, attentive, quick to address even the smallest item it question. Great location, beach is just steps away.
Bill, Canada, February 2020
We thank you for our stay in your wonderful unit. There are so many features that set it apart. Hard surface flooring throughout. Nice to have cleaning supplies. Extremely well fitted kitchen with lovely dishes and linens. Smart TV with excellent printed instructions, so we were able to connect into our Amazon Prime streaming. Condo manual with restaurant recommendations, etc. TV in the bedroom is a bonus. Very nice and effective woven drapes which control the heat. We did not use the A/C as we were able to cool off and control the breeze with the louvered windows. Outside sun blinds kept us cool.

Excellent location, very clean, organized with all items necessary to make our stay comfortable.
Beautiful Wailea Condo!
Mary, California, October 2019 (Vrbo)
Great views. Incredibly well-equipped kitchen and very comfortable bed-what more do you need?
A beautiful place with beautiful ocean views!
Patti & Bob, California, Sept. 2019 (Vrbo)
A beautiful place, nicely furnished, with beautiful ocean views and sunsets. Close to shopping and restaurants. Laurie added nice touches to personalize the visit and had detailed instructions for check-in/check-out and for working the appliances, TVs, A/C, fans, etc. Very clean. Ample parking and easy access. Laurie's communication was top notch. Would we stay there again? Definitely!
Would highly recommend!
Robert, Illinois, Sept. 2019 (Vrbo)
Our stay was a very enjoyable two weeks. The condo was as stated. Comfortable seating and bed. The views from the lanai of sunsets were spectacular. Everything we needed had provided by Laurie, the owner. Shopping and restaurants just minutes away. Would highly recommend for a stay here.
Fantastic home base for wedding/honeymoon!
Elly, Minnesota, August 2019 (Airbnb)
Laurie's place was a FANTASTIC home base for our Hawaiian wedding and honeymoon. Laurie is thorough and thoughtful and a helpful host. We ate breakfast every morning on the lanai and had a gorgeous view of the sunset over the ocean every night. We hope to stay again!
Adrian, California, July 2019 (Vrbo)
What an amazing condo! We had the pleasure of renting this place and were not disappointed. The views are to die for. Although the place was perfectly appointed and large enough for my wife and our toddler, we spent most of our time on the lanai taking in the views and enjoying the trade winds. The location is also perfect given its close proximity to the shops, restaurants, resorts and beaches. Laurie is a wonderful host and a prompt and transparent communicator. We are planning to be back.
Nicole, California, June 2019 (Airbnb)
Laurie's place was perfect. The cleanliness, attention to detail and proximity to beach, shops, restaurants can't be beat. We'd definitely recommend not only tis unit, but also Laurie for being such a fantastic host. Mahalo!
Our happy place!
Diane, Alberta, November 2018 (Vrbo)
The condo is in a wonderful location; amazing view, close to shops, restaurants and quiet in the evening. The owners are wonderful to deal with and the unit is well appointed.
We will absolutely return to this condo!
Tamia, Los Angeles, October 2018 (Airbnb)
Do not hesitate to book Laurie's beautiful condo! We loved that the surrounding area is upscale and posh, and not overcrowded. The condo is within walking distance to the best beaches, shops and restaurants-far from the more touristy parts of the island. The ocean view is far more expansive than the pictures illustrate, and not only from the lanai, but from the living, dining area and kitchen too. The condo itself was exceptionally clean and stocked with amenities far and beyond what we expected. Laurie was stellar prior to booking, happily answering all questions we had and she was very quick to respond when we had a couple questions just after arrival. Having two full bathrooms was a real treat and super convenient. As were the washer/dryer. You can't go wrong with this place. We will absolutely return. Mahalo!
Wonderful location in a quiet complex!
Kelsi, Seattle, January 2018
We loved our stay here. Well appointed, clean and spacious. And you can't beat the location. Thank you!
Another great stay at Laurie & Glenn's!
Collin & Patti, December 2017
This was our second stay at Laurie & Glenn's condo! Our three weeks in November were great again thanks to the many features this condo offers. The comfy new seating on the lanai made the fabulous sunsets even more perfect. The kitchen remains well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. Little extras like a wireless speaker and a new full sized washer/dryer (and a drying rack for delicates) make longer stays feel more like home. The ceiling fans and cross breeze really made the unit cool without having to rely on sir conditioning all the time. We especially love the location and the quick walk down the Street to the Shops at Wailea. Most mornings, we kept walking past the shops to the path that runs all along the beachfront hotels and condos. Great exercise with amazing views. We also really enjoyed having two full bathrooms even though it was just the two of us. We're already looking forward to our third stay, Thanks Laurie & Glenn!
Lisa, Washington, August 2017
The condo is updated, clean and comfortable. Especially comfortable. Great patio furniture, soft sofas, and good mattress-these things are very important to me and this condo has all of that and more. Also, Laurie & Glenn were great in working with me over some issues I have having while in their condo. All-in-all, a great experience and we plan to stay here again. Thanks, Laurie & Glenn!
Beautiful condo in fabulous location!
Maira, Canada, June 2017
Thank you Laurie & Glenn, for a fantastic stay in your beautiful Wailea condo. The place was even more lovely than the photos, with beautiful and comfortable furniture and amazing amenities provided. You can see gorgeous sunsets from the lanai! Never got tired of beautiful ocean views. Beds were super comfortable and air conditioning was great. We enjoyed preparing some meals at home (dish wear, appliances provided) and also the excellent restaurants in the area (thank you for great recommendations). We appreciated the beach chairs and towels being available to us. We were given loads of information on the best beaches to check out, local tourist attractions and things to do. This is a prime location to access the south Maui beaches, shopping and restaurants of Kihei, and a reasonable drive to both Lahaina and upcountry Maui. Amazing snorkeling at several beaches 10 minutes drive away (sea turtles galore!) Snorkel Bob's is just steps away if you need to rent equipment. The condo complex has a very nice pool that was pretty much empty every time we went for a swim. Loved listening to the sounds of birds in the a.m. Laurie was super helpful and responsive when there was a minor maintenance issue when we first check in. Highly recommend this vacation rental and would come back in a heartbeat :)
Clean, convenient and quiet.
Jeffrey, California, June 2017
Perfect for a couple. Easy access for Wailea attractions. Unit was clean, well equipped and everything worked. Very well managed. All as advertised.
Condo is one of the best we've stayed in!
Sue, California, May 2017
Condo is one of the best we've stayed in during our ten visits to Hawaii.
Dianne, Alberta, November 2016
We have stayed at Wailea Ekolu for the past 6 years and this is one of the best one bedroom units on the property we have stayed in. Beautiful view from the lanai, easy walking distance to the shops of Wailea and oceanfront. Condo is in a very quiet location and very well appointed with everything one needs for their stay. Owner provided excellent communication from the time we booked the property in April to after check out. Manoli's, which is down the street, was excellent for lunch. Since we have been coming to Maui for many years, we tend not to run around doing many activities, but this time I checked off learning to paddle board from my bucket list. Highly recommend private lessons from Paddle on. Lessons off of Polo Beach in front of Kea Lani hotel. We also drove down south of La Perouse Bay, where there is a beautiful hike on the lava fields along the coast - do this hike early in the day, pack lots of water and proper footwear is a must. Mahalo Laurie & Glenn, for sharing your beautiful island home, and we look forward to staying there again one day!
