Our studio has been renovated with modern tropical furnishings, new bathroom, private washer/dryer, private lanai and upgraded kitchenette facilities to include a larger size fridge (with dedicated freezer), and kitchenette sink. Most striking about this unit is it's affordability considering the Wailea location and the amenities included.

This rental is located walking distance to many of Maui's most pristine white sand beaches. 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.

We also own one other studio unit and two one bedroom units at Grand Champions. These beautiful accommodations are only two minutes away from the Shops of Wailea. Three renowned championship golf courses and 11 tennis courts surround the Grand Champions Villas providing preferential rates to our guests.

Perfect week in Maui

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay here. Everything was as described. Very quiet, except for the birds chirping at sunset. Condo has everything you need for making breakfast. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance, but if you want more affordable Kihea is a short drive. Maui Pies has a fantastic chicken pot pie. Fantastic beaches are a short drive away. There are free shows at the shops at 5:30. Took in the sunrise at the top of the volcano while I was here. Definitely worth the experience.

Good Location Convenient and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Communication: Steve and Tamara are owners/managers and replied promptly.

Location: Wailea is one of the best areas on Maui. Sunny, not as busy and dry. Three good restaurants, tennis and golf within short walking distance. Top Maui snorkeling/beaches within 10 minutes drive. Shopping too! 2 minutes walk to two pools in complex.

Unit: Studio second (top) floor end - dense vegetation behind with shaded patio. Quiet!

All necessities included, even beach towels, toys and chairs. Good free wifi.

Great for one or two people. Kitchenette fully supplied for basic cooking. We usually had breakfast and lunch in and went out for dinner.

Can't go wrong here. And it's Maui! Excellent birding and turtles everywhere.

Great Value

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a perfect location 5 minutes from the beach and restaurants. The unit was furnished with everything we needed. There are two pools one is a quiet pool area which is nice for couples it is small but most days we had it all to ourselves. The owner Steve is very responsive, we had an issue where we got locked out and were stuck on the balcony and he was available immediately and was able to get us in.

The only negative is finding available guest parking in the evening because studios do not have reserved spots. We will definitely book this unit in the future when traveling to the Wailea area.

Pleasant and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

We (hubby and myself, mid 40s) stayed for 8 nights in the property and are very pleased with the choice we made for our first visit to Maui.

The Grand Champions complex is a wonderful location in beautiful Wailea. Conveniently, we enjoyed walking down the hill to the shops and for walks along the beach (note: uphill on the way back). We also enjoyed the short walk uphill to the wonderful Monkeypod restaurant where you can find the BEST Mai Tai. It was also easy to get in and out of the complex with our rental vehicle and park close to the unit. The entire complex was always very quiet, which was perfect as that enabled us to have a peaceful night of sleep after very active and busy days on the island. Studio #22A, in particular, was tucked away on the corner of the top floor and backed up to lovely greenery, which made it feel even more private and secluded. The unit was a short walk to one of the private and quiet pools, which we enjoyed a few times during our visit.

The amenities within the condo were very helpful in making our stay enjoyable and convenient. Specifically: the air conditioning worked well to keep us cool at night; the washer/dryer was SO helpful to have within the unit (located in the bathroom closet); the mini-kitchen enabled us to keep items on hand to pack lunches and snacks for our day packs; snorkels, beach towels, lunch cooler tote, beach chairs, hair dryer….everything we needed on-island that we couldn’t bring ourselves was available to us within the unit.

Steve and Tamara communicated well throughout the process and made sure we had all necessary information about payments, the unit, entry instructions, driving directions, etc. They made sure we had their contact information should we need anything during our stay.

The property itself was bright and comfortable, though I do prefer wood or laminate flooring over carpet in warmer climates.

I can easily recommend #22A to others and would consider staying there again if we make a return visit to Maui.
