About The Owner

Retired from a medical profession 10 years ago, spouse retired teacher. We enjoy our active Maui lifestyle...Leon with tennis and golf and myself with the outrigger canoe culture of the islands.

Wailea was our choice to be near beautiful beaches and ocean activites, but in a more quiet and less dense area than Kihei or the West side highrise resorts. We also like the ease of accessing all parts of the island from here.

Our condos were chosen for their location in the resort of Wailea, away from all roads and their location within the complex of GCV. They offer maximum privacy with their lanais facing a private garden area of beautiful flowering trees and plants filled with birdsong. No golfers passing and no mowers and sprayers in the early morning, also not looking over the parking lot or noisy pool area.

That is a personal preference and many of our guests really appreciate and enjoy the same features.

Come have a unique experience and paddle with our canoe club on a Tu or Thur morning for a $30 donation. For many, it is a highlight of their trip. A unique experience for all ages and abilities. Must be 10 yrs or older. Ask'll find a welcoming and encouraging 'ohana' (family) on our beach.

Why The Owner chose Maui

Also, very spacious units located on 12 lushly landscaped acres. It is hard to explain the difference between Kihei and Wailea, but you will feel it as soon as you enter. Low rise, architecturally pleasing plantation style buildings, not cement cinder block, in a beautiful, tropical setting.

Walk to the beautiful and exclusive Shops of Wailea, a number of restaurants and cocktail lounges, the 3 mile round trip Wailea Oceanfront Path (STUNNING).

What makes this condo unique

This is a unique studio offering with large, legal kitchenette and private, covered lanai. You will feel like you have your own little guesthouse rather than just a condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gail & Leon, Sorry we didn't get to meet Leon, but Gail, great to meet you! Big thank you for everything. It was perfect. If I could remember the chant before the canoe paddle, I'd write it now to you!

Mahalo and muchas gracias!

Convenient location and great amenities in Secret Studio

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Secret Studio in Wailea. The condo was walking distance to the Shops of Wailea where there were restaurants and shops that we visited and didn't need our rental car. The condo was clean and had everything we needed during our stay including bath towels and beach towels. My one recommendation for improvement would be to get better fitting sheets for the bed. The bed was really comfortable, but every morning, we woke up with the fitted sheet in a pile in the center of the bed. This was because the sheets were too small for this thick mattress. Current fitted sheets come in extra deep sizes now to accommodate mattresses with thermal padding. We would recommend this studio to family and friends vacationing in Maui. It was great.

We really enjoyed our stay in Wailea. The studio was exactly as described on VRBO. It was very private, clean, and had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed having lunch on the lanai which is very private and has beautiful trees and lots of birds around it. It was really nice being able to walk to the restaurants that were close. Thank you Gail for sharing your studio with us! We hope to return someday and will stay here again!

Beautiful secret garden studio

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 8 nights in the secret garden studio. We love the location both in Wailea and within the property. It is very easy to walk down to the beachwalk as well as to the beach. The owner is very helpful with suggestions for activities as well as restaurants. We especially enjoyed Matteo's. This is our second stay here and we hope to return soon.

Great property to base your Maui vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The secret studio is all it is claimed to be. Location is

exceptional and the evenings upon daily outings so quiet. The bed was superb. Gail was prompt and very helpful. Perfect!

Mamas Fish House and Kula Lodge both were Maui Waui dining experiences!

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the secret studio, everything was great!! Nice location, very clean, and a comfy bed. We have no complaints. We would love to return to Maui and would want to stay here again. The recommendations for eating places and etc. were also very helpful. ( We loved Monkeypods!) This was our first experience with a VRBO and we could not have been more pleased.

Thank you!
