This Grand Champions - One bedroom condominium is just a short walk to the ocean. 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 and a "fainting couch", a living room with a full size futon and a couch, 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. 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. Be sure to check out the many, many reviews below. Also, if you are looking for something for larger groups, or closer to the water please check out our new listing VRBO 1858451.

Please be advised that the building roofs in the complex are being re-done from May 2023 through September 2024. There is a break in the work between 12/7/23-4/1/24. Almost all of the buildings to be done in 2023 are on the opposite side and end of the complex, and away from the complex entrance. Our building is scheduled for 7/19/24-8/9/24, and the one right next door for 6/28/24-7/22/24. I will not be renting the condo during those two periods. In general, the condo association has promised to limit the impact to pool use and parking, but I expect there will be some. Please consider this when making a reservation in this timeframe. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Also, we now have two 2018 low mileage Honda Pilots that can be rented for $50/day each. This includes all taxes and fees on my end. Turo may charge additional fees. Rental is separate through the Turo app. If you are interested in this please ask for more info after booking.

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 rates/reservations at the Wailea and Makena courses.

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.

We Maui often to visit family and have stayed in many different places on the island. This condo stands out for many reasons. It is as described - large, well-maintained and in one of the nicer parts of the island. It's in a very nice complex, near amenities and the beach. We were just two, but this unit could comfortably sleep another two on a futon in the large living room. The kitchen worked for breakfast and you could have prepared all meals as it is fully equipped. The owner/manager was great. In short, we'll rent again.

The condo was great for 2 of us. We didn’t cook but the kitchen appeared to be well stocked. The bathroom was spacious as was the bedroom. The balcony was great to sit outside and enjoy the greenery and birds.

Within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, and with a swimming pool two minutes away, all at a good price compared to most condos in the area. And the owner/manager responds quickly to all inquiries.

This year was our fourth stay at this condo and it never fails. We tried other condos -good and not so good but we always come back to this one. There beds are very comfortable and for our family of three that doesn’t stay inside the house very often, this was the perfect place to stay. It is also great in the way that you are within walking distance of beaches, and shopping centres, with a variety of restaurants in the area. This condo is right in the middle of a beautiful golf course with tennis courts and pools nearby. The perfect ingredient for a perfect vacation!

Mark’s place was beautiful. Set back far from the parking lot, it was quiet with only the Myba birds making noise (very fun to hear!). The view of palm tree, plumeria, bouganveilla and other flowering shrubs from the lanai was gorgeous. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom spacious and all very clean and well appointed. The coconut lamp in the bedroom was my favorite. There was hand soap, shampoo, hairdryers (3), dishwashing soap, plenty of towels and comfortable couch and futon couch in living room. We ate meals on the lanai, which was the only time we heard our neighbors at all. Did not use tvs, but there are 2 nice flat screen tvs. Kitchen has everything you need and also very clean! We walked to Ulua and Wailea Beaches, rode our rental bikes (Boss Frog’s in south Kihei-3.5 miles away) to Kameole Park Beaches I, II and III and had yummy fish tacos at Coconuts (2nd floor branch across from Kameole Park Beach I). Highly recommend Pita Paradise in Waile Gateway Center-lamb kabobs, hummus & grilled pita appetizer and baklava ice cream cake were terrific, as was the service and live music (acoustic guitar w/singer) on Sunday evening. Fun riding bike but wear helmet. Lots of tourists driving looking at the pretty flowers, not for bicyclists. Would give this place a 10/10 and planning on coming back in a year or two!!

I had a great experience staying here! I had no issues during my 6 night stay. The place was clean and the photos were accurate. I found this place to be quite spacious which was nice. It is a bit outdated but everything worked and we were usually outside anyway. The location was also convenient because it was within walking distance of things.

Clean and close to Wailea and ulua beach! I would drive so you can bring gear more easily, like chairs, coolers, and umbrellas. 4min drive vs 15 min walk, 45min-1hr walk at toddler pace. The place was exactly as described and shown in pictures. Would stay again! Thanks!

The locations and amenities are fine --- the major issue is the fact that the master bedroom is rented out as a separate unit and the walls are super thin within the same unit. The tenant staying there that weekend woke up our family on BOTH nights we were there. The first time was around 10pm, which wasn't too bad though our daughter had just fallen asleep, but the second night it was at 4AM in the morning. I had to knock on the adjoining master bedroom door to ask them to be quiet, which was terrible and awkward and kept us all awake for some time. DO NOT stay here until you are a night owl yourself. Furthermore, the pillows have seen better days and our bedroom door has slats (like for a closet door) and therefore did not block out light or sound from the living room (where our child was up at all hours due to the fact that the futon she was sleeping on was right against the master bedroom wall where the other tenant was staying).

It was just what was advertised!

The place looked clean and well maintained. The location is decent, but all the food places nearby are a bit expensive. But a 3-4 mile drive takes you to the best beaches and food places. It’s important to read the directions for finding the unit, and parking very carefully. Otherwise you can be lost in the property. The owner isn’t very prompt to replying to messages.

We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. It was really well located next to the shops and quick drive to many beaches. It is right next to the tennis club, where we played multiple days. The condo was well stocked with chairs, umbrella, and cooler for the beach. Has everything you need!

This property is exactly as advertised. Full kitchen, laundry machines on the lanai, parking right out front. It's about a 15 minute walk to the Wailea beach walk, although they no longer charge for parking at the shops there, which is a 2 minute drive. Highly recommend, would stay again!

What a sweet condo! We stayed for four nights and enjoyed them thoroughly. The unit was quiet and clean with a deck off that back opening to a bird infested ;-) tropical garden. We spent every morning, after a swim at Ulua Beach, drinking coffee and listening to the avian chatter. Totally pleased.

Loved the ability to walk to coffee shop, places to eat, places to shop and even a couple beaches. Great location. Condo has everything you need!!!

The spacious condo is clean and in an excellent neighbourhood. Backing onto a small ravine means it is cooler than many condos in the area.

My fiancée and I stayed at this property and we absolutely LOVED the place. Perfect location with beautiful beaches, restaurants and high end shops all in walking distance. Highly recommend!

Mark, We enjoyed the stay overall. However, there was a problem with ants and the bed was super hard. You may want to consider getting a mattress topper and spraying for ants. In addition we were not pleased with the difficulty locking and unlocking the door. The water took extra long to get hot and there was no hand soap. It was very difficult to pull out the futon it was getting stuck and we felt uncomfortable like it was going to break. The trip was a success for my birthday and you have a convenient place near a lot of places. Thank you for your hospitality.

Our stay in your condo was great! Everything was so clean and tidy and so much space for just the two of us. The grounds of the condo property were beautiful and we loved that it was actually within walking distance of a lot of great spots (we walked to a lovely coffee shop just across the main thoroughfare everyday, actually). We had everything we needed and we only wished that we were staying the area longer. Communication with the owner, Mark, was easy and very fast. It was nice staying in a place with such reliable assistance when needed. Would stay again!
