Overview

Wailea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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. This is our personal condominium, and when we are not on the property one of our neighbors will be available to take care of any problems. Please check our rental calendar before putting in an inquiry, as this will save us both time; we keep it up to the minute.

The studio features a large bedroom/sitting area with a comfortable queen size bed and a full size futon, a kitchenette, full bathroom 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 is 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, luxury condominium in one of the finest resorts in the world. It is like staying at the world famous Grand Wailea resort (which you can walk to) for less than a third of the price. While this is a quiet complex in general, this condominium is one of the best as it is an end unit.

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. Absent that pre-agreement, if you are not out of the unit by 11:00, you will be charged an additional days rental. Please note that if there are back-to-back, or in and out on the same day, situations created by your reservation, this may cause my cleaner to be overbooked, and you may be asked to accept a later check in time, such as 6:00. If this is necessary, a $50 credit will be given.

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 number (GE and TAT) is W81461332-01.

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

Thank you for letting us stay in your condo. It was very pleasant stay. You keep your condo very nice and clean. We hope to come back and stay here again in the future.

A Lovely Nest in Wailea

  • 5 of 5
We had the privilege of staying here for three nights, and we were very happy with everything. The owners were excellent with communications and always responded promptly to our questions. While our friends payed over $300/night to stay in the resort hotel nearby, we paid a third of what they did and we were only a ten minute walk away from them. Upon arrival, we were pleased to discover that the studio was clean and fully stocked with towels, soap, beach gear, etc., as well as a box of Hawaiian chocolates to welcome us! We liked having the option of grilling our own dinner, since the restaurants in the area are quite pricey. The pool and the hot tub on property are mellow and relaxing. We loved hearing the tropical birds chirping in the mornings, and appreciated that the lanai feels very private. We would definitely recommend this place as an affordable home base for travelers enjoy exploring the surrounding beaches, shops, and natural beauty!

Best Option for the Price

  • of 5
Very cute little studio in Wailea with a small terrace, and packed with plenty of towels and beach equipment. The key phrase here is "best option for the price". It's only $100/night, so you can't expect high-end furnishings. The sink was a little small, so you pretty much have to do dishes immediately after eating. The unit could also benefit from better wifi and an updated coffee machine. I think the small investment in some better utilities/household products would pay off in returning customers, but some may see the outdated equipment and decide to just spend a little extra next time on a hotel or a more modern condo.

Otherwise location is phenomenal. Close drive to Kihei, to many beaches and trails. The apartment is very small so you're encouraged to get out of it every day and do stuff, haha. Gym heads--don't miss The Gym Maui in Kihei. The best gym staff I've ever encountered in the whole world, and only $10/person per day.

We never had a problem finding a Guest parking spot for our rental car. Only other irk about this unit was that there seem to be 100 rules and regulations posted all over the unit and the condo instruction book. It's a little overwhelming. Owners might want to look into simplifying the experience or changing the condo so that it's not so prone to issues like a black bag scuffing the white walls if positioned on a luggage stand. Why put the stand there in the first place? No one wants to check into a vacation rental and be greeted by "don't touch this! Don't touch that! Don't do this!" It creates almost as invasive feel from the get-go.

Still giving this 5 stars because of the value. Hopefully my candid feedback will result in some great changes to the property that will make it even more spectacular!

From Yukon, Canada - Stayed for a week!

  • 5 of 5
Starting from the beginning of this experience:

I was very weary about booking with a person rather than with a hotel. I was afraid I would deposit my money and it would disappear never to be seen again and that I would land in Maui looking for a place that did not exist. I expressed this concern and was reassured that I would not be ripped off. I made the leap of faith and booked using my Visa and it turned out to be the best decision ever! This place is perfectly located, close to shops, restaurants, and the best under-advertised "little" beach on Maui! When we arrived after a long day of travelling, my lover and I really appreciated the two bottles of cold water waiting in the fridge and the stack of ice in the freezer. The place was clean and never got too hot, but there was the AC for the odd night. The sun sets early here, so we were able to enjoy the pools right down and around the corner after the kind security guard smiled at our plastic cups of drink and pointed out the way.

The night before we went golfing (my first time ever) we snuggled in the queen sized comfy bed after using the (provided) blender to make a Yukon-strength batch of Margaritas and watched "Tin Cup." That same night we read through the stack of pamphlets we found on an end table and lined up our activities for the rest of our vacation.

There was always ample parking right outside our general area regardless of what time we made it back to the room. One night we traveled to Kihei and explored "The Triangle." It was fun, but not too crazy.

Most of our time was spent at the beach! Big Beach is great, but don't miss the chance to go to Little Beach for Sunday sunset. Because of the time difference, we were up at about 6:00 am and we passed almost every early morning by filling up the coolers with cold drinks and ice, loading the beach chairs and umbrella into the trunk of the car, smearing on the SPF and making sure our bathing suits and towels were ready for another sunny day. After making some bacon, eggs, toast, and coffee, we would sit on the lani and enjoy the singing birds while eating. After breakfast we would make our sandwiches and store away some fruit for later and then be on our way for the day.

My next trip to Maui will be booked here!

Our only regret is that we didn't book our entire vacation at this spot. We stayed at the Aston Kaanapali Villas for a week :-( there were so many hidden fees: Resort fees, cleaning fees, parking fees, coin laundry

A clean, cozy studio at an affordable price

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the studio for 5 nights. Our stay was really pleasant and comfortable. The property owner was a kind, amicable person and was prompt in replying to our queries. The studio had almost everything we needed - utensils, towels, washer and dryer, beach chairs, umbrella and even snorkelling gear. The place was really clean. The patio is wonderful to sit and relax after a swim in the beach. Plenty of parking spaces, two great swimming pools and in all we enjoyed our stay and had no trouble at all.
