Great View, Perfect Location!
"Thank you Carol for making our stay here at the Palms such a great experience! The Lanai was our favourite place to hang out, any time of the day! Very spacious for our family of 4 and so many access points to the outdoors with light from every angle. This unit was well stocked and clean. Having the pool right outside our lanai worked great for our 11 year old who swam constantly while we were here. So sad to be going back to winter in Calgary tomorrow..."

"This condo is well appointed, clean and has everything you need. the views are breathtaking, the condo is quiet and private. The kitchen is well equipped with decent wine glasses and good knives-we like to cook so these are important for us! used the bbq at the pool most nights. updated bathroom and kitchen, very comfortable furnishings. this is our 6th visit to Grand Champion villas, and this unit is our favourite."

Another wonderful visit - Five stars for this price range
"Ekolu is the best compromise location in all of Wailea. Price versus location are the key - here you get all the best views, views and views, along with easy access to the best beaches at a very fair price. You can spend double or triple but still need to schlep all your stuff a few hundred yards to the beach - why not just do it from your car rather than your condo?
This unit is well equipped, centrally located in the complex and near the clubhouse and a nice pool. The pictures of the view don't do the view justice, simply amazing.
Some traffic noise was noted with the windows open (who needs a/c when you have those wonderful trade winds!) The hotel construction across the street was also heard but only during daylight hours and should end soon. I'm sensitive to noise and would come back to this unit as the noise was minimal.
The owners were great to work with and have a very well equipped unit including all the beach toys you could hope for. Easy access to Ulua beach for those long beach walks. Don't hesitate to rent this unit."

"As soon as we arrived we were surprised by a welcome basket of local goodies. (Thank you Kanako!) Just like Maui, the unit is more impressive than photos - the ceiling in the living/dining room is nice and high and the view from the balcony at sunset is breath-taking, especially with the beautifully kept golf course in the foreground and mountain and ocean in the background.
Our family of 6 adults stayed here. The master bedroom is nice and spacious with a generous bathroom. There is a door separating the toilet from the sink and shower, however there is no door separating the sink/shower from the master bedroom. The third bedroom with 2 twin beds were pushed together to form a king sized bed (as requested) and worked nicely for us. The rooms were comfortable and clean. As other reviews have noted, there were plenty of bath towels and beach towels to use.
We really liked the convenience of the kitchen - it allowed us to prepare breakfast and midnight snacks at our leisure. This was much better for us than having to wait for everyone to be ready in the morning before going out for breakfast. We saved a lot of money that way. The kitchen has everything you need, including pots/pans, dishes, cutlery, spices, soap, and dish cloths. You might just have to get more paper towel if you use up the roll provided, depending on the length of your stay. (Same goes with toilet paper!)
Having access to a washer and dryer on the balcony was also really convenient. The machines looked brand new. We purposely packed less clothing knowing that we could do a quick load of laundry there.
The internet and cable was very adequate. Keep in mind that the wireless internet does not have a password. A/C window units quickly cooled the condo. Note, there is no A/C in the 3rd bedroom, but every bdrm has a ceiling fan.
The condo included fun for the beach - boogie boards and 8 beach chairs. The chairs were really useful when we went up to watch the sunset at Haleakala.
Grounds of the Grand Champions are beautifully and constantly maintained. There is a security guard who walks around at night. There is a car-washing station that allowed us to rinse off sand from trips to the beach.
Communicating with the owner was easy. Kanako always answered my emails and was very kind to mail us our toiletry bag when we discovered that we left it behind. (THANKS AGAIN KANAKO!)
Overall, we were very happy that we stayed here and would recommend it to anyone!"
