My husband and I spent five days in this lovely studio. It has everything we needed and more. The bathroom is large, the kitchenette works well and there is a full-sized washer and dryer. The decor is very homey and warm. The lanai is private with greenery all around. We loved that space for eating, reading or just enjoying the feel of Hawaii. The location is great; walking distance to the Shops at Wailea, with restaurants, a Whalers and ABC stores, and lots of high-end retail. It is also close to wonderful beaches and beach walks along the coastline. The owners provided everything necessary for beaching; comfortable chairs, an umbrella, lots of beach towels, cooler, etc. They even included a snorkel and mask! This studio is an amazing value!

The studio was immaculately clean and felt like a home away from home. The property and grounds were quiet and gardens well manicured, with one of the pools on the property 5 minutes across from the studio. The lanai was quiet and green and the studio very private. I was delighted on arrival after a long flight to find some items in the bathroom that I did not have time to buy prior! Everything I needed was supplied. This was the perfect getaway for me to have some complete quiet and relaxation! Furnishings stylish and bed comfortable. I was travelling on my own and this was perfect for me; I have the sense that noise would be frowned upon at the Grand Champions so would probably not recommend this for an exuberant family group :) Also, given the studio is overlooking a small valley/greenery it was not really bright inside during the day; this was perfectly fine for me but if you are after a bright space with views it's not for you. I would absolutely recommend this property and would most definitely go back. I was much happier staying here than I was during the rest of my trip staying at big hotels. A big thankyou to the owners for a fabulous stay and I'd love to visit again.

We had the opportunity to stay for a month at this studio condo and it was a great experience. The listing is so accurate, we actually felt that we had been in the place prior to arriving. Gail emailed us detailed instructions that were very helpful in finding the condo and figuring out some of the other details. We were there when a tropical storm was headed for Maui. Gail and Leon were very attentive in relaying information to us as well as delivering emergency supplies. It didn't turn out to be as bad as forecasters originally thought, but being prepared made all the difference. Gail passed on local knowledge we would not have otherwise had. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well night after night as a result. The back patio area made for a lovely spot to listen to the birds and eat meals. The security guard was very vigilant in patrolling the property and gave a nice sense of security. Wailea is an absolutely beautiful area in general and this condo complex was no exception. I would recommend this place to anyone interested in staying in a very well appointed condo for a reasonable price.

Owner response: Mahalo for taking the time to review the Secret Studio. We could not have asked for better or more helpful guests and it is a pleasure for us to know you enjoyed your time in the Studio. We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you and/or friends and family again in the future and, next time, have the opportunity to say hello in person.

We so enjoyed our 5 nite stay at the darling "secret garden condo"! We had a symphony of birds singing on the lanai that looks onto flowering trees & garden area. Private & quiet! Gail was a delight to work with and she has supplied everything you would need for your stay. Beach chairs, a small cooler,paperback books & we even found sunscreen. Gail, thanks for all the wonderful info on shopping, restaurants and beaches! It really helped alot! We had a memorable & delicious dinner (excellent service too) our last evening @ Sarento's in Kihei. Expensive but well worth it for a front table to watch a gorgeous sunset. We hope to return soon to this "steal of a deal " for a darling condo in an excellent location in Wailea. We would definitely recommend this condo to our friends & family.

Great unit and complex that is easy to get to and an under five minute drive to the nearby beach and shops. Very clean unit, well appointed with all that you need for a comfortable stay and fun including boogie boards. The complex was clean, secure and has nice pools for adults and kids as well as bbq's. Highlights for us were bodysurfing/snorkelling on Ulua beach nearby and snorkelling the incredible lava shoreline in the state/regional park just past McKenna..a 10 minute drive and a must do for anyone who likes good snorkeling or diving. Shop for groceries at Costco or Safeway on the way in as dining out options were limited.

Great for an on-the-go couple
This little studio worked perfectly for us on our non stop explore-the-island vacation. Because we planned to take in as much of the island as possible, we chose this as our home base to have a nice comfortable bed for good nights sleeping, a nice bathroom to shower, and a nice kitchenette to cut our morning fruit and make a cup of coffee. We really spent very little time at the studio, other than to sleep and shower, but it worked out great and the grounds are very nice. We give it a "thumbs up."

The location of this studio was excellent, within walking distance to beaches and hotels of Wailea, as well as the Shops at Wailea. The studio was beautifully appointed, with many amenities. We especially appreciated the dishwasher, the electric fry pan, toaster oven and rice cooker, so it was not necessary to eat out every night as we were there for one full month. Lanai was spacious and washer and dryer were conveniently located in a closet off the lanai. Beach chairs were Tommy Bahama! and far exceeded the beach chairs we were provided with any other rental. Gail and Leon are wonderful people and wanted to ensure we had a good time. Would highly recommend this studio to others. Matter of fact, we are already signed up for next year!

Owner response: Mahalo, Donna, for sharing your experience with our possible future guests. I know a lot of people read these reviews to try and make decisions between hundreds, if not thousands of rental units. Your effort to let future renters (and us) know that your experience in the Secret Studio was positive is a great help and lets us know that we are doing what we hope to do; spread aloha and make our guests feel they have a home away from home while on Maui. We are so pleased to welcome you back next year. May your spring be early, your summer balmy and your fall the time you begin to look forward to your return to Maui. A hui hou, Gail

The property was just as shown in the photos.We were very pleased with the accommodations.We especially loved the private luana when the pair of cardinals visited in the morning.Gail, you gave us so much great information regarding the rental and the surrounding area we felt at home .The Condo was clean and comfortable .The Condo is in a great location to shops, restaurants,and of course a multitude of fabulous beaches. We would stay in this complex again ,very quiet and secure. Our daughters wedding was beautiful on the Makena Beach at sunset with the sound of the ocean ,family and friends.We spent 2 weeks in this paradise not wanting to leave,but we have hundreds of pictures to capture the memories of our time spent here. Come stay, you won't be disappointed.

Owner response: Mahalo Richard and Theresa for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay and that the Makena wedding was splendid. We truly appreciate your feedback and hope we may have the opportunity to welcome you and/or family and friends again in the future. We appreciate the great care you took with the studio and hope spring has 'sprung' in Canada by now. Mahalo nui loa, Gail
Our stay at the Wailea Studio was perfect from the moment we entered, starting with the macadamia chocolates. Perfectly located and spotlessly clean, we appreciated the owners' attention to detail, including the sunblock, the condiments in the fridge, and the wireless access. They did an excellent job of anticipating traveler needs. Although Grand Champions is in a populated resort area, the lanai is private and secluded...a respite from the world. We enjoyed starting each day in this relaxing area. The beach walk and nearby beaches are beautiful. If we are lucky enough to return to Maui, we would definitely hope to return to this unit.

About the owner: Retired from a medical profession 8 years ago, spouse retired teacher. We enjoy our active Maui lifestyle...Leon with tennis and golf and myself with the outrigger canoe culture of the islands. Wailea was our choice to be near beautiful beaches and ocean activites, but in a more quiet and less dense area than Kihei or the West side highrise resorts. We also like the ease of accessing all parts of the island from here. All of our condos were chosen for their location in the resort of Wailea, away from all roads and their location within the complex of GCV. They offer maximum privacy with their lanais facing a private garden area of beautiful flowering trees and plants filled with birdsong. No golfers passing and no mowers and sprayers in the early morning, also not looking over the parking lot or noisy pool area. That is a personal preference and many of our guests really appreciate and enjoy the same featureS. Come have a unique experience and paddle with our canoe club on a Tu or Thur morning for a $30 donation. For many, it is a highlight of their trip. A unique experience for all ages and abilities. Must be 10 yrs or older. Ask me...you'll find a welcoming and encouraging 'ohana' (family) on our beach.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Champions:
Also, very spacious units located on 12 lushly landscaped acres. It is hard to explain the difference between Kihei and Wailea, but you will feel it as soon as you enter. Low rise, architecturally pleasing buildings in a beautiful, tropical setting. Walk to the beautiful and exclusive Shops of Wailea, a number of restaurants and cocktail lounges, the 3 mile round trip Wailea Oceanfront Path (STUNNING).
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This is a unique studio offering with large, legal kitchenette and private, covered lanai. You will feel like you have your own little guesthouse rather than just a condo.
