Ali'i Resorts welcome you when you arrive at the condo. They are gracious and informative. This is one of the cleanest and beautiful condos on the island. The view from the lanai looks over the golf course and out to the water. The sunsets from the lanai are stunning. It is in walking distance to the shops at Wailea and the beach. The pool is very nice. We have stayed here a few times and the owners are always improving something in the unit. We have not found a downside to this condo. Highly recommend staying here!!!

The staff at ali'i Resorts were very helpful and great to work with. Ekolu 312 gives you a great view of the water, especially since its on the 2nd floor. You can also see the islands off the coast and plenty of palm trees. Ekolu is within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the beach but far enough away to still be removed from traffic and street noise.
Be prepared to hear some morning sounds, about 3 days a week, of the golf course gardeners since this location is on the 15th hole of Old Blue. But the upside is you're not looking at rooftops or parking lots so it was worth it.
This condo was perfect for the two of us and had everything we needed including a closet washer/dryer.
We would definitely recommend Ekolu 312 as a great place to stay for your Maui vacation. Read more
We truly appreciate having such a nice review. Thank you for staying with us, we are so pleased to know your stay at Ekolu #312 was well worth it! Have a great year and we will see you again soon. Mahalo from Ali'i Resorts

What a great trip! Our first time on Maui and it was all we expected and more. And, this rental was perfect. Clean, comfortable with a great view of the Pacific as well as Molikini. It just felt like home. Ali'i Resorts provided top notch service from the start with Jessica meeting us at the property and filling us in on the accommodations as well as local attractions. How good was it? Well, we will be back and will be renting through ali'i Resorts once again. Read more

The pictures viewed on the web site captured the condo interior & exterior well. The condo was well appointed and lacked nothing that one would need. The
resort staff was very friendly and very helpful in making our stay enjoyable.
The view was fantastic and we loved waking up to it every morning. We liked
not being in a busy highly commercial area. The Shops at Wailea were
wonderful! It was sad to leave such a wonderful area.

This was our second time staying in this unit and using alii resorts. First, Alii resorts is great to deal with and very responsive to any requests. One of the best! As for the unit it is everything you could ask for. There are great views of the golf course and ocean, bbq on balcony, has been updated enough to be very comfortable with everything you need, and a 5 to 10 minute walk to Shops at Wailea. What could be better. Suggested upgrades - new mattress and new wifi router. We have been to Maui about 20 times and stayed all over the island. Will for sure be back to this unit again. Read more

We have stayed in a few of the Ekolu condos in the past so we have a pretty good perspective. We love the location: it is quiet, has a great view and is handy to all the beaches etc. We also cycle every day and can ride from the condo to Wailuku, Lahina, lava fields etc. or drive to Paia to ride the Hana road etc. We have never used the pools so we won't comment. We had a major problem with the internet during our entire stay which is essential these days when people have to keep in touch for personal or work reasons. We had pre-arranged to have long distance phone service as well but that was a disaster - thanks to ali'i resorts for providing a cell phone for us to use. The condo was well equipped and we liked the high chairs and table on the lanai which made enjoying the view much easier. The BBQ worked fine. The stereo speakers were shot with allot of distortion,but great to have a docking system for iPhone/etc. The aC sometimes popped the breaker. The kitchen was well equipped - we prepare most of our meals (3 week + stay). The unit had 2 beach chairs and could use 2 more. The only upgrades that could be made would be tile in the living room/dining area and replacing the original kitchen cupboards. Otherwise the bathroom was great and the laundry worked well. The condo was very well decorated overall. Read more

I have been visiting Maui two to three times a year and always rent a condo. I would say my last stay at this unit was memorable, and this is the first review I have ever written. The unit was perfect and the most impresive thing was the costomer service of the property managment. It was just that extra touch tha I have not witnessed with other condo rentals that made my vacation perfect. The unit has everything that you would need and then some. Great Job and thank you

Staff at alii Resorts were great. Very helpful and all requests/questions were handled promptly. The condo had some upgrades done which were very nice and ahd all the supplies you could possibly want. The view from the deck with no buildings in front of you was incredible for watching sunsets. Walk to the Shops at Wailea in about 5 to 10 minutes. Countless greast restaurants, five golf courses, and half a dozen great beaches within 5 to 10 minutes drive. Would absolutely return again.

We received the service we expected. Good response from your office to a minor problem wit an understanding of the TV. Housekeeping was there only once and cleaned it up in 20 minutes. Location was "fantastic". Ameneties were excellent. We liked the electric grill the best.
We thought that there would be a phone that would leave us messages from our family as well as friends from Oahu as well as the mainland.

We've stayed at many condos on the island of Maui. This was one of the nicest. It is not on the water, but it has a wonderful view of the ocean and is right on a beautiful fairway of a golf course. There are no buildings in front of the view. We sat on the deck morning, noon and night. We were there in March so we saw many whales in the distance. A pair of binoculars would have been nice to see the whales a little closer.
The condo is well stocked with kitchen necessities, bath towels and beach chairs. It needs more blankets. There is a heavy bedspread/comforter that is too hot. The only other blanket was one thin blanket. We never opened the sofa bed to see if there was another blanket there. Two or three additional blankets in the closet are needed.
Both bathrooms are quite large so it would be fine for renters who had someone sleeping on the sofabed in the living room.
When we reserved the condo we were told normal check-in time is 4:00 but we could check in earlier if it was ready. When we called ali'i Resorts from the car rental agency, as we were instructed to do, there was confusion as to whether the condo was ready for occupancy. We were told it hadn't been cleaned yet and it would be at least as late as 4:00, even though they knew we were arriving at 10:30. Turned out it was already ready since it had not been used for several days. We received a call back around noon and were told the greeter would be there to meet us at 1:00. We arrived at 12:45 and the greeter was there. It was very nice to be handed the keys and to have questions answered on the spot.
Other than the mix-up about our check-in time ali'i Resorts was very easy to work with during the booking and payment process. They called the night before we left to make sure everything had gone well and to give us check-out instructions.

If you are looking for the perfect South Maui quiet serene setting, with an awesome ocean view with nightly multicolored sunsets with all the comforts of home then #312 in Wailea Ekolu is the ideal for you & your squeeze.
Best snorkling on the island by car is minutes away. The best fish tacos on earth at "Coconuts", Sushi at "Sanai" (sushi) & a new place called "Three's Bar & Grill" (awsome burger, sushi or steak) all in Kihei are awesome. Leave the treadmill on the mainland and enjoy.

We had an absolutely great time in Maui! The condo was the best that we have stayed in. Very clean and comfortable. You really felt at home in this condo. There was not one thing that we did not like about it.
Great location and great view. Easy walk to the shops at Wailea and the walk along the beach in front ot the hotels. Sitting on the Lanai after a day on the beach was the perfect ending to our day!

We have stayed in the same unit in the past - its location and amenities are the reason we returned, aside from it being a good value. We enjoyed the restful quiet at the unit, its proximity to the Wailea restaurants and beaches, and the beauty of the area. We look forward to returning to this unit in the future.
