"With the magnificent Pacific views and elegant Maui condos along the beach, our stay here was magical."
Although you may be enjoying your Maui vacation in the lap of luxury, gazing off the edge of a beachfront infinity pool at stunning vistas, venture beyond the paved roads lined with rolling green golf courses and get a glimpse of Maui in its natural state.
“Perfect family spot”
We stayed here as a family and really enjoyed our stay. There were 3 adults, 2 teenagers and our son (10 yrs old at the time) and we fit into Unit 134 just fine. The place was spacious and clean, the beds were comfy (even the roll away they brought for our son) and everything we needed in the kitchen was provided.
These condos are situated between the tennis club and a golf course. We had number 142 with a partial ocean view on the tennis club side of the development. Our 1 bed condo had two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and spacious living area. It was nicely furnished and we had everything we could ask for including beach towels, boogie boards and beach chairs!
We have rented one of these condos for a week every February for the past 15 years so obviously we have been extremely satisfied overall. Wailea Elua Village is a verdant oasis of peace and tranquility surrounded by huge crowded noisy 4 star hotels. The units are strategically positioned for maximum privacy and are surrounded by perfectly manicured lawns on rolling acres punctuated by vibrant bougainvillea, flowering Hibiscus and ginger.
“Beautiful units and grounds”
Good: very nice units Bad: none Location Tip: wailea/kihei is sunnier than other maui locations. Our unit was close to a busy road so when the doors/windows were open on that side of unit, you can hear it. It was not disruptive for us but may be a problem for others. Otherwise, it's a great place.
“STAY HERE if you go to Maui”
We recently stayed in #1604, a 2 bd 2 shower beachfront upper floor condo with renovated kitchen and loved the view of the "point". The kitchen was well equipped with good dishes, flatware, glasses, utensils etc. We spoke to Destination Resorts about one scratched and slightly warped frying pan and a new replacement arrived immediately.
“Wailea Elua #2104”
Stayed in unit 2104 last week during a stay in Wailea. This 2br/2bath unit is newly remodeled has everything you'll need for your stay. While the location of the unit is further back from the beach, it is really a quick walk and still has beautiful views of the water. All of the appliances were brand new and the unit also has a large gas grill. The unit also has two coolers and four new beach chairs. We rented through Destination Resorts and had a really terrific experience.
You will not be disappointed with this unit.
“Wailea Ekolu Village”
Close to beaches, quiet, and beautiful condo. Will book again
“Loved it! Total luxury!”
Basically I can say nothing bad at all!! It was beautiful, luxurious, roomy and perfect! Loved the villa, the grounds, the beach, the pools, the view, everything!!!!! The Shops at Wailea, which are right there, are a major plus too!!! It was perfect! We had a wonderful time!! I wouldnt stay anywhere else in maui!
PURE LUXURY and staff is like family. Thank you for a great vacation.
“Wailea Beach Villas”
Good: Penthouse apartments large and very well furnished Excellent staff - concierge well connected locally and very helpful An ideal spot - very quiet, right on the beach, but plenty of activities and hotel facilties (bars, restuarants) nearby if desired Good shops on door step Can watch the humpback whales play from the pool or the room Daily house keeping excellent Bad: Nothing to dislike
“Great Vacation Spot”
Family of 5 (3 small children). Loved this hotel, spacious 2 bedroom penthouse, great kitchen with quality appliances, nice view, friendly staff, close to the beach, beautifully maintained landscaping, nice workout room, close to the shops at Wailea, quiet, not over crowded, looking forward to visit again.
“Private Place on Maui”
We own a place on the North Shore of Maui but stayed here at Christmas for a week to change things up. it was an excellent choice. You have your own kitchen and separate rooms for the kids and adults. Right on the beach and the whale watching from the balcony is unsurpassed! We left our stand up paddle boards on the grass behind the property all week and they were totally safe. Great place...we're going back soon.
“Wonderful family vacation spot”
Just returned from Ekahi in Wailea. Spotless, great family oriented condo, upper level with great lanai and great views of the ocean. Two minute walk to beach and pool. Convenient location. We were in 51D: 2 bedroom, 2 bath. Updated kitchen. Great gas grill. Highly recommended. Grounds are well kept. Large lawn area on the walk down to the pool and ocean. We saw whales spouting from the lanai. Enjoyed snorkeling at nearby beaches, stand up paddle boarding, swimming in ocean, whale watching, golf, dining out. Keep the Aloha spirit!
“10 F for our first visit to Maui”
Wow, what an amazing, beautifully renovated and decorated condo! We spent a week here and loved it. The condo offers a partial ocean view and a full view of the stunning grounds. The beach was 3 minutes walk away, the quiet pool just steps away.
“Makena Surf F208 - Blown Away”
Our family of four rented the Makena Surf unit F208 through Destination Resorts for two weeks in March 2013, and we were blown away. The unit has been recently renovated (travertine floors, conrcrete counters in the kitchen, granite in the bath rooms). Electronic dimming system throughout with indirect lighting in all the ceilings and even on the lanai. Sliding glass doors on the ocean side of the unit collapse together and disappear into the wall - so you really feel that you are outside when in the kitchen and living area.
“Wailea Ekahi Village”
Very welcoming and great service. Quiet and tastefully decorated apartment with lovely views of the gardens. Access to beautiful beach - make sure you don't miss the sunsets. Close to lots of activities and attractions.
Maui is well known for its great snorkeling where honu (Hawaiian sea turtles) can be viewed in their natural environment. But if you don't want to get wet there are a few secluded spots where honus can be seen onshore bathing under the Hawaiian sun. If you happen upon one, don’t get too close. When photographing, use a zoom lens and remember that it is unlawful to touch or disturb them.

It was a sunny Maui morning when Destination Resorts Hawaii paid tribute to Joachim Atadoutin, an employee who recently passed away. Pastor Alika from the nearby historic Keawala’i Church conducted a tender service in Hawaiian and English, bringing a beautiful makana (gift) of rose petals, wrapped in ti leaves, and adorned with ferns and foliage harvested from the church grounds. Along the shoreline of sandy Po’olenalena Beach near our Makena Surf, we tossed our flowers into the ocean as we remembered a gentle man with a brilliant smile, a hard worker with a big heart and a big appetite. Aloha ‘Oe Joachim.
