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.

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

The condo was very comfortable, clean and spacious. It's well priced especially where it is located. It's close to Ulua, Mokapu and Keawakapu beaches. All very nice .

Most importantly was that Steve and Tamara are/were very accommodating. We could not have asked for a better place to stay.

Wonderful accomodation in Wailea

  • 5 of 5

Hi Tamara and Steve, Your accomodation was everything it said on the site. It was comfortable, clean and roomy and really made up feel we could set up as a home away from home for an extended time if need be. Very thoughtful little extras and start up items just smoothed the way to settle in. I know it is not advertised as having seaviews but what a lovely sight to get up in the morning and any other time of day and look down the property out over the water. We were walking distance from cafes and supermarkets. The one on the oustide of the shopping centre does prepared meals if you dont want to cook and had a good range of wines. Easy 10 min stroll to beach. Bit harder coming back the first couple of days as a bit uphill but we improved our fitness by doing the walking. We would recommend this property for a couple. Thanks for rescuing us when we locked ourselves out on the balconey - out fault as we didn't open latch properly I think. This was our first trip to Maui and we would stay here again.

Tropical and Peaceful Wailea Condo

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Steve and Tamara for providing a serene vacation home in Wailea. We just returned from an 8 day stay. and loved the ocean views looking out the front door and from the bedroom windows. Sunrise or sunset...we could see both! It was relaxing sitting on the patio looking out at the private jungle views and watching and hearing the colorful singing birds. Ladies...this unit includes a hair dryer, diffuser and curling iron plus has a separate bathtub from the shower. The bathroom is large and newly remodeled. The large closet with ice chests/ice cooler in the frig was fun for beach days along with the beach chairs and snorkel equipment out on the deck in the washer/dryer cabinet. Lots of closet space. Great starter kits for bathroom/kitchen supplies. It was so convenient having a designated parking spot too. Each day as we walked down the stairs, we were greeted by beautiful lime green geckos. We even saw a mongoose in the gardens. The landscape around the complex is beautiful with many tropical flowers. The BBQ's are quick and easy to use by the 2 pools. We walked to Andaz Maui and along the beach strand to the Grand Wailea resort. The condo is in a great serene location with easy access to any Wailea beaches and hotels and to the town of Kihei. The highway is up behind it and provides quick access to getting to other parts of Maui such as Haleakula and fun towns of Paia and Makawao.

Hope to visit again soon!

Lovely Unit! Fabulous view of the ocean from your bedroom

  • 4 of 5

Arrived to find this lovely unit just as pictured & described inside. Spotlessly clean, well appointed with every need considered. So nice to have an owner who thinks of their enough of their renters to provide a start up supply of paper products (& some others as well!) so you don't have to immediately drop your stuff & run to the store.

Comfy king bed, nice dining table works for both meals & computer activity, comfy sofa & great TVs (tvs a big deal for the hubby!). The only thing I could have wished for inside the unit would be another seating option beyond the sofa, even in the method of a single comfy chair. Dining chairs worked okay but got hard fast if you plan to sit for longer than a meal.

3 things to be aware of :

1) this is a 2nd floor unit and there are ONLY stairs. The stairs are a bit steep and open backed so if you're traveling with children, an elder or have challenges with stairs or carrying your bags/groceries, this could be a big deal for you. As we're both healthy & don't have little ones it worked just fine for us.

2) the lanai is not really very private. While the lanai appears private in the pictures, & the owner has done their best to make it so, it is actually shared with "unit" 22A. As a result, we were not entirely comfortable using it whenever we wanted and I think the folks staying in 22A probably felt the same. My first morning on the lanai I was enjoying my iced tea & book while soaking in the sun, the breeze & the trees. As this is a quiet activity, I'm sure the neighbors didn't have a clue that their argument which escalated as they came out and sat with their coffee was being overheard. I felt bad hearing it all, but felt it would be worse to announce my presence or embarrassing to us all were I to get up and go inside. The same thing happened the next day as they came out and placed a speakerphone call to a family member. This time I simply got up and went inside. Sad, as the use of a lanai is one of the absolute pleasures I enjoy on a beach vacation. Not really much the owners can do about this but it's something to be aware of if the lanai is a big draw/deal for you when on holiday.

3) currently construction is underway directly behind the unit through the trees. As a result, if you are using the outside space/lanai, you are going to hear construction vehicles & their backup warning beepers all day long from right at 8 a.m. until at least 5 p.m. every day.
