Loved the location. Loved the property. Loved the lanai!
This house had a great location-close walk to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Location was a 5. Quiet community with a nice pool area. The house itself was clean and had some great amenities particularly in the kitchen, which is great. The lanai had a good amount of space, but we had rain. And while the lanai was covered it didn’t offer a great deal of protection. The condo itself was dated - carpets in particular and window air conditioning which was annoying to sleep with-so rate place a 3. But overall based on both location and place we rated it a 4.
Devin made sure we knew he was available at any time if we needed anything at all. Check-in was easy. They thought of every little detail...even a full pitcher of filtered water in the fridge! Condo was spacious with a beautiful tropical view that felt very secluded and private. We will definitely be back again!! Thank you for the wonderful home away from home! ❤️
Devin's condo exceeded our expectations! He has thought of everything we might need and more! It is beautiful and spacious, in a great location near to the beach and with 2 pools in the complex. We cant think of anything we would have changed and would definitely go back!
We enjoyed this property so much! It had everything we needed for our family. The location is perfect and so close to the Shops at Wailea, town of Kihei and the beach. Devin was very helpful and responsive. I highly recommend.
The condo was beautiful, fully stocked, touching arrival goodies, great communication w/owner, and perfectly located. We would stay at this property again for sure. Mahalo
Regarding the VRBO space at Grand Champions I'd say the positives were:
Beach Stuff: 2 beach umbrellas, 2 beach chairs and that cool insulated back pack were available for taking to the beach.
Kitchen filled w/ plates, utensils, pots and pans, etc.
Appreciated Ice packs for trip to the beach
Beds: super comfortable
Split AC unit in each bedroom and living room. My travel buddy likes it warmer and I prefer it cooler. This was great so we all had our perfect temp.
Easy to get to streaming stations
We enjoyed the comfy couch for evening TV watching
Parking was very close to the condo
Close to Island Market for quick meals
Close to Monkey Pod Restaurant, a nice restaurant with a fun HAPPY Hour
Walking path part of the way (part of it walking in street or on grass)
really only negative was:
Not much of a breeze through condo with windows and doors open
We really enjoyed our stay
I have been thinking about this review for 2 weeks now and I am down to the final day. The condo property is top notch. They have two (heated!!!) pools. One for kids and one for adults (not nude, just quiet). The property is very nice. Parking is directly out front. The condo was extremely well taken care of. A couple of quirks. Toilets do not flush great. AC’s are on a 4 hour timer. The AC’s are basically 3 window units installed in the condo. Kitchen was a 10. Full spices and everything you would want. Never seen a condo so well stocked. Blenders, coffee marker, everything - except disposal. We even ran out of creamer and they had the instant stuff in the cabinet for the last day. Huge balcony - lanai. I do want to mention that this 2 bed unit had couches for 5 people - unusual. Security guard was very nice. The property Host was responsive which leads us to the one issue. Cleanliness. We did arrive a little bit early. This poor girl was sweating her ass off (don’t care if that offends people because she was working really hard). I opened the door about 30 minutes early to be met this poor girl trying to clean up after the last renters. I literally asked her if she needed anything. Anywho. Our friends were coming in the next day. Everything was perfect except carpet and tile. My wife and I decided that it would be easier if we would spend 15 minutes to clean instead of having the cleaner come back the next day. Again, the Host said he would send someone over. One reason I like condos is because there is no one coming into the place so I can do whatever I want, whenever I want and not have to leave for housekeeping. But first impressions are first impressions. Otherwise, this place is 5 stars across the board. And it was not the housekeepers fault. Again, she was working her ass off to allow us into the place. It was the prior renters. I wanted to write this because the place is so nice. I might return. But it is still managements job to make sure everything is good. Management failed as my wife moped the floors while I vacuumed to make the place they it should have been when we arrived. And I will say one more time… this poor house cleaner was upset, embarrassed and sweaty - we could not blame her. She was a 5 star plus.
Our family took a much needed vacation and this condo couldn't have been better! Devin was very responsive and great to work with - his communication was great and check-in/check-out were super easy. You instantly feel the care he puts in to this property. The condo itself was very clean, plenty big and the location was fantastic. Both bathrooms and bedrooms were very nice and comfortable to stay in - we loved how updated everything was. The large lanai was also fantastic - it was great being able to wake up to that beautiful jungle view every morning. It was also very quiet. Kitchen was very well stocked with every tool and appliance you would need - having a rental with actual nice cookware and appliances is a plus. The condo complex itself is beautiful as well, with a real "Hawaii" feel. Pool and BBQ's were right across the parking lot and easy to get to so we could cook up a couple meals. Location wise, obviously it's not right on the beach but with a family and all the beach gear we would be driving anyway. A 3 minute drive puts you right at Wailea Beach. Devin has all the beach gear you would need as well - towels, umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards, snorkels, fins, water shoes for the kids, and beach toys. What else could you need! Don't hesitate! Book this one if you're thinking about it.
Devin was accommodating in every way! The condo was just what we could have hoped for in a property. Parking was easy, and the condo is right next to the pool and BBQ. The Lanai out back was perfect for a relaxing breakfast. very close to the beach and the condo provided pretty much everything we would want for the beach as well. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!!
We were happy to find a comfortable clean unit in a safe quiet area. The pictures in the listing were accurate. The condo has a spacious shaded lanai with a tropical view. We went to the beach when we wanted to see the sunset. The two bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms are at different ends of the condo which makes them feel private. It's also helpful when you have individuals with different sleep schedules. The beds were comfortable (on the soft side, which I like, but also tolerable to my family members who prefer firm mattresses). The main door has a key pad access. There is also another door nearby that provides an exit from the 2nd bedroom. These doors also have screen doors that allow you to get a breeze thru the unit if the lanai screens are also in place. We often preferred the breeze to using the a/c during the day. The nearby pool and hot tub areas are well-kept and close promptly at 10pm. It's about a 3/4 mile walk to the closest public beach access at Ulua Beach (no sidewalk for part of the walk but you can walk on the grassy edge, and there's one intersection with traffic lights). It's definitely easier to drive to the beach if you have lots of gear. One day we took along three of the beach chairs from the storage closet on our drive to the beach. The chairs were comfortable and kept us out of the sand. However, one of the striped chairs had a malfunctioning articulating piece which made it quite problematic to fold when we were ready to store it in the trunk of our car.
The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, pans, utensils, spices, etc. It allowed us to easily prepare two meals a day at the unit. We also appreciated that there was a water pitcher with a filter in the fridge for better tasting tap water to fill our water bottles. Some groceries can be found in the expensive "Shops at Wailea" complex by walking down the hill. Foodland, Safeway, and Costco are farther-away options if you have a car.
The host was responsive to our questions. We had difficulty getting the TVs to work... fortunately, we eventually got one operational. It would be helpful to have troubleshooting guidelines handy for such occasions.
We enjoyed our stay on Maui-- thanks for the hospitality!
We will pla to stay there in the next vacation
This was a wonderful property in the heart of Wailea. It was clean, spacious and had all the necessities. We appreciated the beach chairs, towels and coolers. We spent a lot of time at the beach and this came in handy.
We enjoyed the pool in the late afternoons after a day of exploring Maui and found the adult pool on the other side of the complex.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful rental with us!! We had an amazing time.
We chose this unit for its location, its size, its large lanai and its value. It was exactly as its pictured. Its has two large private bedrooms each with its own private bathrooms, a sleek new granite kitchen with modern conveniences, a very large lanai, beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards and snorkeling gear. We enjoyed eating our breakfast outside on the Lanai early each morning. In the evening after returning from dinner, we enjoyed quiet time on the lanai looking up at the stars - no people noises, no kids yelling from the pool, no sounds of road traffic. Although tucked away from the road , this unit is central to all the local beaches, shopping and fine restaurants - less than 8 minutes away. This unit was by far a much better value compared to the ocean-front options that were looked at. I highly recommend this unit to anyone seeking a convenient location in Wailea-Mekaena area, a quiet Villa for peaceful sleep at night and an excellent value in terms of overall cost. Come enjoy your Aloha in this VRBO unit, you will enjoy it!
We had a great vacation at this condo. It is comfortable, very clean, well supplied with the necessities and has terrific beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, and other beach gear. It is beautifully decorated too. The lanai is large with sun and shade and looks out on beautiful trees. The location is close to beaches, restaurants, and shopping. Devin was easy to reach by email.
We had everything we needed here and look forward to visiting again.
