About the property

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

Be sure to check out the many, many reviews below.

This Grand Champions - One bedroom condominium 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 ground floor unit features easy access and a reserved parking space in front of the unit. It features a large bedroom with a comfortable, king-size bed, a living room with a large futon, a full kitchen, dining area, full bathroom with a two person shower and a tub, 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). Floor space is approximately 900 square feet. See below for other details. This is one of the best units in the complex, quiet because it is 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, one bedroom condominium in one of the finest resorts in the world. The unit has not been updated, 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. Easily sleeps four.

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 and& 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.

This condo is Non Smoking, including the lanai area.

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.

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.

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

The memories from our first trip to Hawaii will be everlasting!! The comfort and convenience of he condo have made our trip even better, The bed is comfy, and I have enjoyed my morning coffee on the lanai wile watching and listening to all of the birds! If we are ever this way again we will look this pace up first.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to stay in Mark's condo. We absolutely love it! Just pack some clothes, and after a quick stop at the grocery your all set. The condo is very spacious and comfortable. We love being able to cook our own meals. My husband loves walking across the street to grill. This condo seems very private. We love spending most of our day at the beach and having all the essentials included is perfect. Love the beach chairs and new beach towels. I can't say anything negative about the place. Looking forward to going back!! Thanks Mark!!

Great Condo, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The condo is roomy and includes all you need for a day at the beach or snorkeling or playing tennis. I especially appreciated that the kitchen was stocked with condiments and non-perishable items because shopping for them really increases costs. My favorite part of the condo, though, was the lanai. Every morning and every evening around 6 the birds seranaded us with surround-sound birdsong. So lovely. Took a few days to find our favorite nearby walking beach but enjoyed seeing the sunrise each morning with toes in the sand. All in all, a great place.

Excellent place, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Wailea is a great place to stay - near the best beach in Maui (Makena - Big Beach, and the Little Beach - nude, over the cliffs), but also near the restaurants and stores in Kihei. But Wailea is much more upscale. The condo is has a full kitchen, a great bathroom, and a big living room. Great place, very clean, they do have an adult pool, easy shopping at Safeway. But most wonderfully, the patio overlooks a virtual botanical garden I could have stared as it all day long, but there was too much more to do. Wailea is a quick drive over to Kahului - don't speed - the police station is hidden there in Kihei - and to Lahaina, if you find the short cut at the north end of Kihei, which will cut off 20 minutes from the drive. Lahaina has simply become a tourist trap. It does have an outlet mall. If you are looking for real fish platters, the only place I found is Paia Fish - there is one is Kihei, Lahaina and Paia. Other than that, it is fish tacos. I strongly recommend the sunrise on top of the volcano, Haleakala, your first morning, when you are still on EST or whatever = a mystical experience.Bring your national park pass. And the dormant volcano is very interesting, and the drive down is the best views of the Valley Island. Beautiful. Also, escape from the tourists at Lahaina and Kaanapali, and drive around the West Maui mountains, all to way back to Kahului. Beautiful. A long and winding road. But the best treat is Hana, and the Road to Hana. You'll leave in the morning. Rainforest, one-land bridges, one-lane roads, waterfalls, natural pools - the 30 most beautiful miles in the US. YIELD means STOP - you can't magically go through another car. At the end you'll go the the black sand beach and black lava coast at Wainanapa State Park. Unbelievable. The town of Hana is small and quaint. There is a secret red sand nude beach. You'll stop for lunch, There are many places - two official, and many roadside. 15 miles beyond is Oheo Gutch, a difficult hike (600 ft incline) up a rainforest, with waterfalls, natural pools, bamboo forest. If you're not in shape, there are interesting pools and sites at the bottom. It's part of the Haleakala National Park, so bring your park pass. You'll need to return to Kahului before nightfall. The second and every other time you come, you'll spend an entire week in Hana. Do the Heavenly Hana Paradise studio. A tropical fruit farm outside your French doors. Heaven.

Excellent place, excellent locale

  • 5 of 5

Been to Maui many times over the years. Stayed at various hotels. This is vastly nicer. Great living room, large bedroom and bathroom, good kitchen and supplies, beach supplies, incredibly view off the balcony - basically a botanical gardens - and close to the restaurants in Wailea and Kihei, not too far from Lahaina and the airport, and very close to Makena Beach, the best beach in all of Maui. Washer/dryer, coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher, etc.. A/C and king sized bed, which are very hard to find in a condo on Maui. Adult pool. Never meet the owner or property manager, but the latter was in the complex if we needed it. The perfect place, if you don't want room service, and you want to be on your own, deciding which direction to travel each morning.

Wonderful condo in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

For our first time in Maui, with two toddlers in tow, we knew we needed a place more like home that has a washer/dryer (less clothes to pack), spacious bathroom, and a kitchen. We are so thankful to have found this place! Mark always responded quickly and helped us with figuring where to start looking in terms of what places we can go to that the kids can also enjoy. The information packet that is provided prior to your arrival is well detailed. The condo itself is located in a wonderful area, within walking distance for us (we love taking walks), to the Shops at Wailea, and our favorite Wailea Beach! Safeway was also within 10 mins drive. In the condo, our favorite area was the lanai where you are treated to lots of shady trees and flowers - our kids loved hearing the birds sing and the daily visits from geckos. Overall, we definitely want to come back to Maui soon, and will be using this condo again (if available, hopefully!)
