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.

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.

About The Owner

----

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Maui

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).

Not my favorite Grand Champions confo

  • 3 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at the Grand Champions and I have to say this was our least favorite condo. In the pictures it looks very bright and clean, but in person it is very dark and somewhat dingy. The property at Grand Champions is amazing though, and the location is supreme in my opinion. We will definitely stay at these condos again, just not this one.

Owner's Response: Condo is on the ground floor on the shady side and looks out into a wooded area. Most people like the fact that it is cool and quite. There are lots of windows and no one else has every described it as "dark and dingy".

Pretty little King Bed Studio Perfect for Two

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful and economical garden lanai with palm trees, blooming yellow and white plumeria, fushia pink bougainvillea, cute little geckos, singing birds, and much more. Lovely landscaping. Comfy king bed. Great location. Would definitely Recommend!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three stayed at the studio March 14-20, 2017. We were very happy with our rental. The condo was clean, had comfortable beds, plenty of towels, and all necessary kitchen appliances. The lanai was stunning with beautiful view of trees and flowers. We loved the nature and enjoyed the birds chirping every morning. The location was perfect- close to the beaches, shops and restaurants, however quite and private. We are hoping coming back for a longer stay. Thank you Mark!

Love It !!!!

  • 5 of 5

To arrive there after an 11-1/2 hour flight and 2 hours waiting for a rental car, we were very happy to settle into this lovely studio. Because the owner did not thing that the place was 100% ready he refunded our cleaning fee. It was a great location with easy access to the highways, yet very quite with a tropical view.

Thanks Mark

Great location and wonderful privacy

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best deals in Wailea, which can be pricey! It's a large studio with a lovely deck completely surrounded by dense vegetation and gorgeous flowers. Even though it is in a condo complex, visually you feel like you're there alone (you can sometimes hear your neighbors, as in any complex). The room is large and open with wood floors and calm colors for the art and furniture. There's a small kitchen with a frig, microwave, coffee maker, toaster. Not really for cooking, but enough to do the basics (there's a hot plate, but we didn't try it). The bathroom is large and clean, and the location is easy walking distance to stores, restaurants, beaches, etc. A great set-up to enjoy this end of the island without blowing your whole budget. A side note -- often condos are stocked with the basics (salt, pepper, oil, first day's coffee, etc) -- didn't see any of that here. It's not a big deal, just wanted to give you a heads up if you're going to the grocery store before arriving. There was chocolate, however, as well as a range of flippers and snorkel gear, mats for the beach, beach chairs, etc. So nice not to have to rent gear!
