Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Relax, enjoy the gentle breeze, take a deep breath and enjoy the birds, flowers and scents of Maui that surround you.

Our quiet location is surrounded by the Wailea Old Blue Golf Course & adjacent to the Wailea Tennis Club & Wailea Town Center; minutes away from the most beautiful beaches, luxurious shopping and fine restaurants of South Maui.

This 1 bedroom condo is roomy and light with soaring cathedral ceilings. The bedroom has its own air conditioner & can be shut off from the rest of the living area for privacy. There is a full kitchen with granite countertops, electric range & oven, large refrigerator, new dishwasher, microwave and all the cooking utensils you will need. Just off the kitchen is a dining area which adjoins the living room with sofa & love seat. In July, 2014 all tile was replaced, new cabinets installed with granite countertops and a large shower with rainfull showerhead was installed in the bathroom. New stainless steel refrigerator and range were installed, and new washer and dryer installed. A new 46' flat screen TV was added along with new TV cabinet. The lanai also was retiled.

In January, 2016, we replaced all of the living and dining area furniture with Hawaiian motif furniture.

Lush flowering tropical foliage surrounds us. One of Grand Champions' two pools is across the parking area where there is a hot tub and gas grills & tables for your cooking pleasure

Dine on our spacious lanai and enjoy the wind whistling through the bamboo woods. Or sit on the front Lanai and enjoy the beauty of Maui's sunsets and our partial ocean view.

About The Owner

Ralph is a retired pastor who is now Director of Development for a humanitarian aid organization. Janice formerly worked in nursing and insurance; she now cares for their home and Cavalier King Charles puppy, Cromwell. We both enjoy golf and ballroom dancing. Also, Janice volunteers at a local yoga school and is passionate about knitting.

We have visited most of the major islands and feel Maui offers everything we want in a vacation home. We always enjoy the road to Hana, trips around the north and south sides of the island and people-watching in Lahaina. Most mornings we take the shore walk behind the Wailea resorts and look for whales. On our first trip to Maui, we discovered Big Beach and that is still our favorite.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Wailea

We had been looking at units in the Kihei area around the Kameole beaches where we had stayed many times in the past. When our real estate agent convinced us to look at this condo, we were sold immediately! We knew the beautiful Wailea development was worth the extra expense. The ability to manage our own rentals via the internet and a great price brought it within our reach, so we mortgaged our rental properties on the mainland & jumped!

What makes this condo unique

The grills and one of the pools are right across the parking lot from our unit, so our food is still hot when we get back to the condo. We love sitting out on the lanai listening to the breeze rustle the bamboo leaves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ralph and Jan, your beautiful condo could not have been better. So welcoming, comfortable, cozy, after the first night it felt completely like home to us

Perfect Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo in Grand Champions Wailea. We had stayed in a different Grand Champions studio condo during our last trip to Maui two years ago, and really appreciated having the full kitchen and living room available for this trip. Everything was clean and in good condition. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed, including coffee filters, BBQ tools, common spices and seasonings. The bathroom towels were wonderfully soft and fluffy, and we were relieved to find that previous renters had left some of their extra sunscreen and aloe vera when ours ran out with one day left on our vacation. The bed was quite comfortable, and the room was cool enough to sleep in at night with the A/C on. We had expected some noise (being close to the main entrance), but there was never any issue (this actually worked in our favour when we accidentally locked ourselves out on the lanai). We also appreciated having laundry machines available to dry our towels from frequent beach trips. The location was perfect, as we could enjoy the idyllic Wailea weather, and we were able to do day trips to Lahaina, Hana, and Haleakala. We were also close to the Kihei Boat Ramp for our SCUBA trips and a short walk to Wailea Beach and the jogging path. The condo area has two warm saltwater pools with changerooms and BBQs. We liked having a code for the door as we didn't have to worry about forgetting our keys or losing them at the beach. Great value for the price we paid, and the owners were easy to reach and work with. We would definitely stay here again. Mahalo!

Comfortable furniture, quality linens and towels. Good A/C. Great variety of beach supplies and equipment. Full-sized, new washer/dryer. Highly recommend this rental.

Cute, comfortable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I were on Maui for a wedding this past December and stayed here. It was a great place for two people. It was very comfortable and clean, as well as having a well-equipped kitchen. We didn't hear noise from any of the other units and the parking was very convenient, too. It was a great value for the price. The owners were great to work with. I always got a very quick response with any questions that I had. I would definitely stay here again!

All the Comforts of Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property was a great place to stay in Maui, close to everything, gorgeous sunset views steps from the condo, lovely pools with BBQ area. The condo is very well equipped with cooking utensils and appliances for those who like to make some meals at home. The kitchen is kept stocked with staples like olive oil, spices, coffee, sugar, and non-perishable fridge items like mustard and ketchup. The rule is use and replace which is both environmentally responsible and cost effective for guests. Use the last olive oil, buy a new one but no need to replace the 3/4 full ketchup. Brilliant idea and much appreciated. The closet is stocked with beach chairs and towels, boogie boards, snorkel gear, coolers and everything else you need for a great day at the beach. We would highly recommend this place and we hope to be back sooner rather than later.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We have tried to equip our condo the way we would like to find it if we were renters. Since we rented for ten years before we bought our condo, we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to do. Furnishing the kitchen with a full set of high quality pots and pans and providing the basic staples for cooking simply seemed the sensible thing to do. Likewise supplying all the beach gear that people normally use means guests don't need to go out and find those things in shops, taking valuable time away from their vacation.
