ekahi & beyond
We have lots of Maui island info available for you in our condos. Did you know Maui is known as the “Valley Isle” because it was formed by two volcanoes, Puu Kukui (elev. 5,788 feet) in the northwest and Haleakala (elev. 10,023 feet) in the southeast, which are connected by a narrow isthmus of farming land.
Most activities are available right in Wailea but seeing the entire island is fun. Take the day and drive to Hana (Don’t miss the black sand beaches and famous wind surfing areas past Paia). There are great hikes to waterfalls on the way.
Or take a tour and bike down Haleakala Volcano (Haleakala means “house of the sun” in Hawaiian). The sunrises are almost always spectacular. Bring a jacket, the temperature can easily be in the 30’s at sun rise even in August.
On your way back, stop at the local winery (pineapple wine) or visit the flower and vegetable growing areas “UpCountry” near Kula or the artists colony in Makawao.
West Maui offers some wonderful hikes in the West Maui Mountains – the oldest mountains on Maui. Io is one of the wettest spots on earth so it’s no wonder through the years rain
has etched the face of these mountains making for some wonderful wrinkles and valleys.
But it’s the water and beaches that call us. Our beaches are rated among the best in the world and boast soft, white sand and gentle rolling surf. You can ocean kayak for miles, build a sand castle or read a book
You can walk to some of the best scuba and snorkeling in the world or take a boat to Molokini.
Wailea is located in Maui’s sun belt, on its south shore in the lee of Haleakala, protected from most of Maui’s normal rain and winds (averaging 10″ of rain per year).
If you want a tropical island feel in a calm, peaceful setting, Wailea is the place to be. You can stay in our condo, walk the 2 miles of Wailea’s ocean front “boardwalk” to various hotels and the Shops of Wailea. Snorkel, scuba, ocean kayak or swim and sun without ever seeing a car.
Any condo in Ekahi Village is closer to the beach than a room in the lovely resort hotels of Wailea. The kitchen, changing rooms, library, seating cabana and BBQ facilities at the ocean front pool make it a favorite destination.
Widely known & appreciated for our extensive and beautifully landscaped gardens full of tropical color and exotic bird life, Ekahi Village residents also enjoy exclusive use of shuffle board and paddle tennis courts, 4 swimming pools, and our ocean front recreation pavilion. Discounts for Wailea’s golf and tennis facilities are also available.
