As soon as we arrived we were surprised by a welcome basket of local goodies. (Thank you Kanako!) Just like Maui, the unit is more impressive than photos - the ceiling in the living/dining room is nice and high and the view from the balcony at sunset is breath-taking, especially with the beautifully kept golf course in the foreground and mountain and ocean in the background.
Our family of 6 adults stayed here. The master bedroom is nice and spacious with a generous bathroom. There is a door separating the toilet from the sink and shower, however there is no door separating the sink/shower from the master bedroom. The third bedroom with 2 twin beds were pushed together to form a king sized bed (as requested) and worked nicely for us. The rooms were comfortable and clean. As other reviews have noted, there were plenty of bath towels and beach towels to use.
We really liked the convenience of the kitchen - it allowed us to prepare breakfast and midnight snacks at our leisure. This was much better for us than having to wait for everyone to be ready in the morning before going out for breakfast. We saved a lot of money that way. The kitchen has everything you need, including pots/pans, dishes, cutlery, spices, soap, and dish cloths. You might just have to get more paper towel if you use up the roll provided, depending on the length of your stay. (Same goes with toilet paper!)
Having access to a washer and dryer on the balcony was also really convenient. The machines looked brand new. We purposely packed less clothing knowing that we could do a quick load of laundry there.
The internet and cable was very adequate. Keep in mind that the wireless internet does not have a password. A/C window units quickly cooled the condo. Note, there is no A/C in the 3rd bedroom, but every bdrm has a ceiling fan.
The condo included fun for the beach - boogie boards and 8 beach chairs. The chairs were really useful when we went up to watch the sunset at Haleakala.
Grounds of the Grand Champions are beautifully and constantly maintained. There is a security guard who walks around at night. There is a car-washing station that allowed us to rinse off sand from trips to the beach.
Communicating with the owner was easy. Kanako always answered my emails and was very kind to mail us our toiletry bag when we discovered that we left it behind. (THANKS AGAIN KANAKO!)
Overall, we were very happy that we stayed here and would recommend it to anyone!
