Best condos in Village Ekahi on Maui

Has anyone been to the Ekahi villages on Maui? There are so many condos! I would like a Lower Village condo with an oceanview, but does location really matter? I just wonder if it worth the extra $$ to be closer to the beach?
Thanks!

We stayed in the Upper Village of Ekahi and the >10 minute trek to the beach carrying beach chairs, etc. was too far and we subsequently ended up driving to lower village parking spots with our beach gear, so I agree the lower village would be better.

Also the ocean view was too remote from where we stayed in the upper village to see any unmagnified whale activity if you happen to be traveling in winter months, and suggest you inquire with owner(s) of the units you're considering about the quality of ocean view.

Do you remember the unit # you stayed in? We are going in March and staying middle village in unit 33-I am wondering if that is even too far back to lug beach gear etc. and a small child?

Reply to Nicolemp, We stayed in the low 40's so you are about 10 units closer to the beach than we were. If this turns out to be too far for you to walk with your gear, you can drive right to the public beach access parking lot for Keawakapu Beach and unload. We found we preferred the snorkeling better at the Ulua/Mokapu beach border better than the Keawakapu beach in front of the Ekahi, and frequently utilized the beach access drop off there, along with many other folks.

We stayed in uppper Ekahi, condo 24...and I thought it was perfect! You could see the ocean from our lanai and it was a 2 minute walk to the communal pool on the grounds and a few minutes more to the public beach. IMHO it's not worth the extra money to stay closer to the shore.

I have stayed for years in Ekahi, different units (11, 19, 34, 39, 42, 47), and have never found the walk a problem. And we have 3 kids (who have gone there since they were little); it hasn't been a problem for them, at any time. I actually like the views and breezes, and quieter units that are up the mild hill rather than those down near the ocean where more foot "traffic" goes by. It is a 5 minute, pleasant walk even from the "upper" village. My two cents.

Ekahi is wonderful! Check out www.mauiownercondos.com.
