Overview

About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Now even better with new king size bed and more food prep space!

Be sure and check out all of the reviews from previous guests.

This Grand Champions hotel suite/studio is just a short walk to the ocean. The studio features a large bedroom/sitting area with a comfortable brand new king size bed and a full size futon, a kitchenette, full bathroom, washer/dryer and a lanai featuring tropical garden views - with a waterfall and stream in the winter months. While it is a ground floor unit, the lanai is raised about six feet off ground level (no outside access). There are several guest parking spaces available right in front of the condominium. Floor space is approximately 500 square feet. See below for other details. This is one of the best units in the complex, quiet because it is an end unit and on also on the edge of the property, and shaded for most of the day so it is cool even in the summer.

This is the most affordable studio condominium in one of the finest resorts in the world. The unit has not been updated very much, but that is part of why you pay 1/4 of what the hotel down the street charges. You get a clean place to rest or hang out by the pool and you can walk to all of the other great stuff.

The Grand Champions property features two pools with whirlpool spas, barbecue facilities and lush gardens. It is surrounded by Wailea's award winning Blue Golf Course and Tennis Club. Ranked in the top 50 best resort tennis facilities, the club boasts 11 plexi-pave courts, three lit courts for night play, a stadium court, and a full service pro shop. Guests will receive preferential golf and tennis rates/reservations at the Wailea and Makena Resorts.

Located in the heart of the Wailea Resort area, on Maui's sunny south shore, Grand Champions is just a short walk to the Shops at Wailea, and minutes from Ulua Beach (ranked eighth in the nation - world class snorkeling & diving too), Keawakapu, Mokapu, Ulua, Wailea Beach, and Polo Beaches, spa facilities, and award winning restaurants.

Grand Champions is a private enclave in the midst of Wailea that offers its guests all the wealth of this world-class resort's environment and a touch of seclusion that sets it quietly apart. The architecture is classic, the environment peaceful, the landscaping lush, and the views are exceptional - including the world's largest dormant volcano, Haleakala.

Kihei is a few minutes to the north. This is much more of a busy, touristy town. You can find lots of stores there to get groceries and other stuff; and some good, inexpensive restaurants. There is also mainland style shopping center a few miles up the Piilani Highway, with and Outback Steakhouse, a Blockbuster Video and other name brand stores; including a Safeway for food supplies.

Discover Hawaii's fascinating undersea world on a snorkel or dive trip. Explore the beautiful Hawaiian waters aboard a private yacht charter or observe nature on a whale watching tour. For those who would like to remain on land, Hawaii offers adventurous bike tours and eco-tourism hikes. Visit Ahihi-Kina'u Natural Area Reserve, Kealia Pond Wildlife Refuge, or the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale Sanctuary. Maui is a treasure of cultural and natural sights just waiting to be explored.

Check in time is 3:00; check out time is 11:00. You MUST be out of the condo by 11:00 so it can be cleaned for the next occupant unless we have agreed to a late checkout in advance.

This condo is Non Smoking, including the lanai area.

There are no pets allowed in the condo complex.

Cancellations and refunds:

A $300 Deposit is required to hold the condo for all reservations. For rentals longer than three weeks, a larger deposit may be required. This deposit will not be refunded for cancellations within 2 months of arrival. If you just shift a booking in the same general timeframe we can carryover the deposit. If you just cancel, you can apply half of the deposit to a future rental. The balance is due one month before arrival. If the balance is not paid at that time, the reservation may be canceled. Once full payment is made, and if you have to cancel up to 2 weeks before arrival, we will refund one half of the total payment. After that, no refund of any kind.

Hawaii tax numbers are TA-032-821-2480-01 and GE-032-821-2480-01

About The Owner

----

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Wailea

We purchased this condo, which is part of a 2 BR lockout unit, as our retirement home. Of course that hasn't happened as soon as we were expecting. We stayed in a similar unit one summer and fell in love with the area. We were looking for a place that would be great for vacations but also someplace that we could see ourselves living some day.

What makes this condo unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time! We're actually sitting on the runway about to head back to the main land (we went to Honolulu for a few days) and are very sad that our vacation has come to an end. The condo was fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay. Again, we had a terrific stay and all the information provided in advance and in the unit was very helpful. I will definitely recommend the location to friends (and we'll be checking for availability the next time we are in Maui, I'm sure).

Great location in beautiful Maui

  • 5 of 5

This place is just perfect for a nice get away. Our first impression was that the bathroom is huge. Then you walk through the room and see the view of the gardens out the back patio and we knew we picked the right spot. A side note on that, if you sleep with the patio door open at night, expect to hear birds all night. That being said, we loved hanging out on the patio in the morning drinking our coffee and taking it all in. The bed is pretty comfy and definitely roomy. Plenty of places to loung around in the room. The owner has left beach towels, chairs, umbrella, cooler and semi functional snorkeling gear. This stuff really came in handy. The facility, resort, is well manicured and very quite. I didn’t use the pools but they looked nice from an outside perspective. There are several nice beaches, stores and restaurants within a short drive or walk. Overall the place is exceptional. If and when we go back to Maui, we would definitely consider staying here again. The only thing that may prevent us from doing so, is if we decided to stay on another side of the island. That being said, the quality and relaxation of this room may very well influence tat decision and bring us back

Little gem!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful! Two pools, and awesome tennis courts! Short walks to shops, dining and some of the best snorkeling beaches in Wailea! The condo was a pleasant surprise! CLEAN, bright and cheerful, with a nice peaceful lanai that gave you a peek into Hawaiian jungles.

A perfect fit for a couple who loves to live simply but functionally! Excellent price for what you get!!! Will stay again!!!

Thank you Mark!

Lovely, Upscale Studio

  • 4 of 5

We loved the studio...like an upscale hotel room at a fraction of the cost. The bed was great and we had everything we needed. Would stay again and recommend it to others.

Quiet studio right in Wailea. Close to lots of the good beaches and further away from the busy areas of south Maui. Lovely porch and all the basics for a great few days in Wailea!
