About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)



Experience island life in our luxury, spacious, one bedroom condo. Unit #22 is on the top floor and feels extra spacious because of the vaulted ceilings. This rental is offered to you directly from a local couple intent on providing you with the ultimate vacation rental experience - clean, comfortable, beautiful tropical atmosphere and décor, but most importantly - incredible value.

Steve and Tamara Farwig personally own and manage their condos to ensure your much anticipated Maui adventure has a restful and peaceful space to call home - morning Kona coffee on the tropical sundeck, cool afternoon siestas or evening drinks, sunset, and barbecue by the pool.

The award-winning Grand Champions is a highly regarded tennis and golf resort in the heart of Wailea with a laid back and private atmosphere that busy hotels cannot offer. We understand potential guests may have reservations booking accommodations on the basis of internet advertising only, but we can assure that you will not be disappointed.

This luxury, one-bedroom condominium is located walking distance to many of Maui's most pristine, white sand beaches - Keawakapu, Mokapu, Ulua, Wailea Beach, and Polo Beach. There is a three and one-half mile, paved, beach path that fronts five-star hotels for morning exercise or evening sunset strolls. If your heart desires to just lounge about, there are two gorgeous pool and whirlpool spa areas that also have gas barbecues and shaded tables for pool-side dining.

The condominium is located two minutes away from the Shops of Wailea. There you will find terrific restaurants in all price ranges, Hawaiiana stores as well as casual wear such as The Gap and Banana Republic. Three renowned championship golf courses and 11 tennis courts surround the Grand Champions Villas providing preferential rates to our guests.


'As frequent visitors to Maui, we have always stayed in various Wailea resorts. This was our first condo rental experience and I have only two words to say - 'Absolutely perfect!!' We were impressed by many things, among them the fact that the unit was spotlessly clean and beautifully maintained. We were also pleased with how quiet the building was. We are on east coast time, so we are usually asleep by 6PM and up by 3AM. We will be returning to Maui later this year and we'll be in touch to check availability.'

Shelley and Craig Rogers

'Thank you for letting us share your beautiful condo. This is our third time here in Maui, but the first time I felt so at ease. The little extra's you provided made it feel a little like I was at home. Location, location, location. What a perfect spot to be, near the shops, beaches, great restaurants and also a late night dip in the pool. We will always keep you in mind for ourselves, family and friends.'

Larry and Juanita Pudelek

'Thank you so much for your wonderful condo with so many 'extras'. We had many friends and family with us and they rented their own condos. None were as well equipped. Mahalo for a wonderful, easy stay!'

Jillian and Jeff Elkun

'This is absolutely the best place to stay we have ever been. We appreciate especially your great attention to small things - absolutely everything one needs is here, works properly, has it's place. Wonderful organization! I have a sad impression that you might be the last landlords on Earth who care about their guests.'

Alexander and Olga Volberg

'It has been a pleasure staying at your lovely condo from the lovely furnishings and beautiful grounds to the birds singing each morning. All of this has made our honeymoon very special. We hope to return'

Juanita and Ken Rodriguez

'.....this place added a hominess that made our time relaxing and easygoing. Thank you for the little extra things which were a joyful surprise.'

Anthony and Jennifer Arocha

'Thank you again for the lovely accommodations - what a beautiful location to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The birds and the 'little jungle' out on the lanai were precious. We hope to be back very soon.'

Sue and Keith Johnson

'Beautiful setting - spacious, well-equipped and deliciously laid back.'

About Steve and Tamara Farwig

Tamara and I have lived on Maui since 1994 and our two young children were born and raised here. I am a Firefighter for Maui county and I am stationed in Kihei. We have enjoyed owning at the Grand Champions Villas due to its lovely grounds, pool areas, and proximity to the wonderful beaches in Wailea. We live five minutes from our properties and take great care to ensure our guests are happy. If you need anything while you are staying in our condos we are here to help you.

We hope to have you as our guests,

The Farwig Family

Steve and Tamara Farwig purchased this condo in 2003

Why Steve and Tamara Farwig chose South Maui

We chose to own at the Grand Champions because it is located in such a beautiful place above the beach in Wailea. It is close to everything you need but still has a feeling of space and privacy.

What makes this condo unique

The condos are adjacent to the Wailea tennis club, Reps Gym at the Wailea town center and just a few minutes drive to seven beautiful white sand swimming beaches. There are also many great restaurants within a five minute drive or walk to Joe's Bar and Grill(one of our favorite restaurants) right next to the complex. There is a 3.5 mile oceanfront path great for morning exercise or sunset strolls.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our Maui experience was awesome! The condo well exceeded our expectations .... it included anything and everything that we might have needed. Everyday we experienced a new beach...the snorkling, beaches and waves were amazing. We look forward to booking/renting with Steve and Tamara on our next trip to Maui.

Optimal Location.

  • 5 of 5

Embedded and buffered in a Wailea golf/tennis course simulated the privacy of a single family home, through a 2nd story 2 unit complex. Not the cubicle type existence of a high-density resort. Walk-able, across the Drive to the posh/grand Wailea shops, restaurants and Path. Principally our jumping point for the seclusion and relatively unspoiled adjacent Makena beaches.

This unit was as advertised. It felt spacious for three and all the amenities available and well appointed. Especially appreciated the water/ice dispenser. May consider, some of the heavy use cookware/plate ware to be rotated out.

The owners were very friendly and accessible.

This is an amazing condo Unit. The pictures doesn't give it justice.

Beach accessories are very convenient! The kitchen has everything to cook any meal. There's also 2 different pools with BBQ. I definitly recommend this unit. The Wailea area is also very nice and quiet.

Property was great, our whole family lived the place and the proximity to everywhere.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great, we just wished the trees at the balcony were trimmed so we can see the ocean. The place had everything we needed including beach supplies, internet kitchen utensils and towels. We felt like we were home away from home. Thanks for the great place!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Just to clarify the advertised ocean view is from the master bedroom window. You can sip coffee in the morning in bed and see the ocean. The balcony/lanai off the living room is at tree top level facing a bamboo forest. This area fills with birds in the morning and at sunset and it is a very peaceful place to hang out if you like the sounds of nature.

Great place to stay. Well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in this unit at Grand Champions Wailea. The owners were very helpful with booking and making sure we had the arrival instructions. It was a great location - an easy drive (3 minutes) or walk to the beach (about 10 minutes on a hill). The unit has a nice ocean view from the master bedroom and we even watched the fireworks over the ocean from the bedroom. The unit is really well equiped with lawn chairs, other beach items, beach towels, and kitchen items (including a few pantry items), which made cooking a few items very convenient. It was clean and well maintained with no bugs. Very comfortable king bed. Would highly recommend this place for 2 adults. We did not try the sofa bed as we were only 2 people - but there would be enough space to accommodate 4.

Awesome condo

  • 5 of 5

Love staying with theses guys. This was our third stay but first in Unit 22. Clean, spacious with all amenities both for the condo and beach. A short walk to many yummy places to eat and fun places to shop. Shops at Wailea and The Gateway. The beach was a pleasant walk. Can't recommend enough. Hope to stay with you on our next trip to Maui. Cheers
