Getting Around

Fred’s Cab

My favorite airport transport. This recommended resource costs about $50 one way. 5% discount if you rent your car from Lourdes at Avis in Kihei (808-874-4077).  Please use AVIS ARC No. 0158045D (or better yet, the AVIS link below) to make your reservation.

Speedi Shuttle

Transportation to and from the airport. If you call in advance, they will meet your plane.


808-874-4077 (Avis in Kihei) or Toll Free: 800-962-1434 (Avis National)
Avis offers Airport pickup or local pickup in Kihei. With a large fleet, convenient service, competitive pricing and alliances with many airline frequent flyer clubs, this international company is a good bet to service your needs. Good pricing, too, if you use our ARC/IATA number & AWD Code when making any reservation. Click on AVIS to use their website to make your reservation. ATA/ARC No: 0158045D and AWD Code: H461412

The Maui Bus

$2 per ride or monthly pass. It’s getting more reliable, but it’s not quite like the mainland, so be sure you’re not on a tight schedule.


For those into the sharing economy, Uber is now on Island. I’ve used Uber across the USA and generally find it to be better than taxis. Uber offers a “rate checker” or estimator on their website. The Uber app works well, too. I estimated fare from Maui’s Airport (OGG) to Ekahi Village, and thought the range was rather high ($37 -$89).

Turtle Tracks

For short trips, a fun alternative to Uber is Turtle Tracks. Only $3 per ride, this is a great alternative and can be fun, too! Reservations are requested.

Kids’ Stuff

Equipment Rental

Lots of options selling similar items but each with their own feel. Take your pick!

      • BABY’S AWAY: 800-942-9030 or 808-875-9030 Baby and child supply rental service providing cribs, strollers, portable crib, car seats, high chairs, toys, swings & exersaucers.

Grocery Delivery & Stores

Grocery Delivery

    • CONCIERGE CONNECTION: 808-875-9366 Order ahead for pick up or delivery. Why spend time in the grocery store?

At the end of Pi’ilani Highway, the road curves toward the ocean – take a right on Ike Drive just before the stoplight at Wailea Alanui – small high-end deli too. Order ahead for your favorites. Some very good prices and friendly service from owners.

Ahhhh! Ekahi Village! Just saying this name takes us to our happy place!! We love Wailea on Maui! We love the condos at... Ekahi for amazing FAMILY vacations! We rent several condos and bring the whole family! We absolutely love the beaches in Wailea and walking along the beaches and visiting the amazing hotel properties close by! The pool and pavilion at Ekahi are perfect for larger family gatherings! Make sure you choose a condo that has been updated recently! It is an older property and not all units have been renovated! Book early because this beach front property books up early for holidays and peak season! We can’t wait to go back!read more

Matt was wonderful to communicate with and extremely accommodating. The unit we stayed in (2B) was AMAZING!!! It had... everything we needed. When I opened the front door, the first words that came out of my mouth were "OH MY!!". The view of the ocean from the lanai was breathtaking! We were able to watch the whales and admire the beautiful sunsets. Thank you again, Matt, for taking such good care of us. Mahalo!!read more

Ekahi village is beautiful and this condo is amazing! Stocked with everything you could possibly need. We have stayed... in many, many condos while travelling and this was one of, if not the, best. Great sleeping quarters for the kids. Beautifully appointed and the views from the deck and master bedroom are unreal. We hope to come back and get to stay at 11E again!read more

Just completed a week stay in Condo #20A for our first trip ever to Maui and it was amazing! Well maintained and... recently updated. The condo fit our group of 6 comfortably with room to spare. The pool for the Wailea Ekahi Village has stunning views and is connected to the ocean. Everything was top of the line and the friendliness of the owners couldn’t be beat. The location was ideal for all events on the island from visiting Lahaina and Kapalua to doing the Road to Hana and Haleakala. A walk to the beach is only 3 minutes away as it’s right across the street. In addition, a number of fabulous restaurants are less than 15 minutes away as it’s right off of S Kihei Rd. Highly recommend for all future visitors of Maui!read more

Really disappointed and frustrated that Matt will not refund our deposit for condo (17C) that we rented and couldn't... enjoy due to covid. Our flights were cancelled, every other business refunded us for everything, except this one. He kept our deposit. So frustrating and sadly, we will not go to Ekahi Village again. Matt--You refunding one night of our deposit and keeping the rest is the same difference. You're missing my point completely. It's a world-wide global pandemic. It would be a good time to possibly look outside of your cancellation policy. We didn't cancel because of rain or a change of mind.read more

We stayed in 17C early December and had a great time. We have made several trips to Maui and Wailea and really like... this unit. Has all the nice things you would expect even down to great quality linens and towels. Matt was great to work with, everything went very smooth. We will be back.read more
