About The Owner

Ralph is a retired pastor who is now Director of Development for a humanitarian aid organization. Janice formerly worked in nursing and insurance; she now cares for their home and their Cavalier King Charles puppy named Cromwell. We both enjoy golf and dancing in our leisure time, Janice also is active in yoga and is a passionate knitter.

We have visited most of the major islands and feel Maui offers everything we want in a vacation home. We always enjoy the road to Hana, drives around the north and south sides of the island and people-watching in Lahaina. Most mornings we take the shore walk behind the Wailea resorts and look for whales. On our first trip to Maui we discovered Big Beach and that is still our favorite.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Wailea

We had been looking at units in the Kihei area around the Kameole beaches where we had stayed many times in the past. When our real estate agent convinced us to look at this condo, we were sold immediately! We knew the beautiful Wailea development was worth the extra expense. The ability to manage our own rentals via the internet, and a great price brought it within our reach, so we mortgaged our rental properties on the mainland and jumped. We haven't regretted it!! Now when we come to Maui, we feel we are coming home.

What makes this condo unique

Although our ocean view is small, we can still view whale activity from our front lanai and the studio window. The grills & one of the pools are right across the parking lot from our unit, so our food is still hot when we get back to the condo. We love sitting out on the lanai listening to the breeze rustle the bamboo leaves, and sleeping with the doorwall open to the lanai at night. The cathedral ceiling makes the room light and seem bigger than it actually is.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the use of your condo. I found it very comfortable and a beautiful complex. It's hard to be back on the mainland!

We had a lovely time and enjoyed our stay. We felt comfortable and the condo was quiet and relaxing. Would highly recommend. The owners were easy to work with, polite and accommodating — all an extra bonus! Thanks for a wonderful time!

Nice little studio!

  • 5 of 5

I own a 2 BR 2BA condo at Grand Champions, but needed an extra room for my 20 year old son. I found this gem on VRBO and it was perfect for him. He loved the privacy and was very comfortable for 2 weeks. Thank you!

lovely and bright studio. Very comfortable bed with a large bathroom. Adequate kitchenette

  • 3 of 5

The resort grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The resort itself was just a short walk or drive to shopping/restaurants or Kihei. Our favourite beach was a 7 minute car ride away. The two complex pools were very close to the studio. And after a day at the beach we could rinse off the sand from everything at a tap just across from the studio. Nice touch. We barbecued a lot so the 5 or 6 bbq's were nice to have at the two pools. The studio is located just at the entrance near the guardhouse but that didn't seem to bother us as we quite often had lights out between 9 and 10 pm and slept soundly. It was very convenient having the use of the washer and dryer. The ceiling fans were nice to have and they seemed to keep the room cool throughout the evening. We felt very secure and safe at all times. For a studio with small kitchenette, it was very well equipped with most dishes/appliances you would need. We didn't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing meals so it was adequate for breakfast and a light dinner. It was handy to have all the beach gear there in the studio. We made good use of the chairs; snorkel equipment; beach towels;cooler etc. All things considered we had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed our stay immensely.

Wonderful spot for a vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Studio for 3 nights. It was a very close walk to the Marriott and the beach from there.

The studio is perfect and larger then the hotel rooms at the Marriott. Plus there are beach chairs, snorkel gear, and boogey boards that you can take advantage of. Just watch out if you leave anything sweet outside. My wife left some fruit out on the lanai and the ants found it quite quickly.

The mall across the street also has a great selection. The general store in the mall had 10 different kinds of fresh poki... it was heaven! Otherwise there is another market area in the mall parking lot that was also good, but I think the general store has better products.

I definitely recommend staying here. You will need a car if you want to go beyond the Marriott beach but this is a great place to come back to when you are done.

Great Studio in Wailea

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here March 2016. I'm not sure why the previous renter was so disappointed. The listing clearly states (with photos) that the unit is a studio with a kitchenette. Not too noisy, it is a condo, not a private residence. It was great to be able to have breakfast daily and a few simple meals. BBQ is close. Bathroom is large and the new bed was really comfortable! Great to have access to laundry. Air conditioner is a bonus-we didn't use. Well kept property, close to everything in Wailea, can walk from condo to shops, beach and restaurants, although it's nice to have a car to explore Maui.

If you want full 5 star, book a room without kitchenette at the Four Seasons for $600/night. This condo is, as described and the best deal for anywhere in Wailea. With the money we saved, we were able to go out for a few very nice meals!
