- The unit was nice, but the owners should step it up a bit. It felt like the place was outfitted at a garage sale. Nothing matched, and everything was purchased as cheaply as possible. The new kitchen is fine but the all the utensils are dated, and not even non-stick. Spend a few hundred dollars to bring the pot, pans, flatware, dishes, etc into the 2010's. The 2 baths were fine, but the towels were clearly hand-me-downs from their primary residence and none of them matched. $100 at spent Macy's Home sale this weekend would help. Same thing with the bedding, When were those pillow cases made? 1970? We've stayed at Ekahi and Ekolu many times, and this unit showed the least pride of ownership we've seen. 48C is not on our list of places to return to.

Comment by Owner/Manager:
I appreciate the guest comments as it appears the condo needs some cosmetic upgrading. We will go to the condo and look at the linens, bedding and kitchenware and replace what is needed. I thought that the pots and pans were in good condition when we last checked in the fall. Since the condo is in Wailea Ekahi and in the high rent district, these types of items should be matching and of high quality. It is not a large expense for the owner to purchase these items and update the condo. Our housekeepers should be advising us when these types of things need replacement so we will remind them.
