This listing is a combination of listings 491236 (studio) and 491137 (one bedroom). PLEASE SEE THOSE 2 LISTINGS FOR ADDITIONAL TRAVELER REVIEWS.

This spacious, quiet, bright second floor condo (which is also the top floor) was remodeled in 2013. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and consists of new kitchen cabinets, new granite kitchen counter tops, new carpet, new paint, new sinks, bathroom counters, bathtubs and bathtub tile, new air conditioners, new furniture, and much more! This second story condo has high vaulted ceilings and a large living/dining area that creates a large, bright, and airy feel.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the beautiful lanai overlooking the tropical canyon consisting of palm trees (one of which my father-in-law planted!) and flowers, all the while listening to the song birds.

About Helene Sherman

This Grand Champions condo has been in the family for 25 years. Sylvia Sherman, our mother, relocated back to San Diego to spend time with family. We renovated the condo in November 2013. We would like to retain this family legacy on Maui for our children, grandchildren, and all to enjoy.

Sylvia, Bruce, and Helene Sherman

Why Helene Sherman chose Wailea

After my husband and I enjoyed a marvelous vacation in Maui in 1989, we encouraged our parents to travel to this beautiful island. To help the reluctant travelers, we planned the itinerary, down to the best beaches for swimming and snorkeling. At an early morning breakfast, looking out over the calm Pacific waters, our parents decided to move from the 'cold ocean and bitter San Diego winters' to swim and snorkel year round in the 'warm waters of paradise'. That was 25 years ago!

What makes this condo unique

Having visited and lived in Maui over 25 years, and loving to plan itineraries as described above in 'Why this Property' section, we are more than happy to provide you with recommendations on restaurants (we love to eat!!!), beaches, snorkeling spots, and much more. We hope you will ask us any questions that you might have about the Island.

This place was absolutely lovely. The suite is huge, vaulted ceilings add to its airy feel. The rooms are both large and accommodating; kitchen is completely stocked and everything is new and clean. Two lanais, ample light, and cold AC round out this perfect place. Wailea is gorgeous, the pool (we only used the one with the hot tub) is warm and clean and peaceful, and the other guests and residents were friendly and cheerful

We have not one thing we would add to enhance the experience.

We will DEFINITELY be back. 😊☀️

Family of 4 adults enjoyed cooking, shopping, sightseeing and beaching. Mornings and evenings were special times on the lanai. We took a bit of searching to find washer/dryer but they served us perfectly!

Only little complaint is that some of the light bulbs needed to be replaced. Everything else was wonderful!

Our first trip to Maui with our 17 year old twins & we absolutely loved being there ten days! This condo was perfect & had everything we needed. The location is perfect too. We traveled all around the island and found Wailea to be the most picturesque. We also found that Ulua Beach, which is just a few minutes away in a car or a 15 minute walk, was our favorite because it wasn't crowded, had great snorkeling, showers, & some shade trees that you could sit under if you got there soon enough.

Back to the condo review...we loved all the upgrades & beautiful furnishings. We thought the back patio was breathtaking. The view & privacy are unheard of with bright pink bougainvilleas, tons of plumeria, & more. We were surprised to see colorful parakeets among many other beautiful birds. From our room, we could open the shade curtains, open the huge door first thing in the morning, without anyone being able to see in while getting ready for our morning walk, start the coffee in our own kitchen, & sneak out without waking grumpy teens. Then we drove down to Ulua & took the beautiful walking path. If you go right you walk on a long beach lined with amazing houses with kind neighbors playing with their adorable puppies (Mokapu I think). One day we went all the way to Kamaole III Beach following the Eddie Pu Trail. Along the shoreline we could see dolphins playing in the ocean. If you take the trail from Ulua Beach to the left, you will follow a well designed path that is stunning but is loaded with many runners. It was beautiful, but not as relaxing watching people run, listening to people huff & puff, & feeling the sweat fall on you from time to time lol.

The two pools are very close to the condo & were also very beautiful. Both had two very nice barbeques. The closest pool is one that accommodates children while the one not much further away is reserved for adults who like it more quite, but I guess some people there couldn't read...gosh I hate using a pool with a 2 year old wearing a swim diaper...oh well...why be at the pool when you can be at the beach.

I'd recommend this condo for anyone. Very thoughtfully stocked, beautiful, & Helene was a sweetheart to work with. I'm just worried when we want to come back, this one will be booked up. Great price & perfect!

1/2 mile from the most beautiful beaches in Maui. Walk or drive to the beach, then walk 3 1/2 miles along beaches and beachfront paths.
