Grand Champions Villa #42

Upper floor and easy access to the pool...

Our condo is the upper right corner end unit in the picture. Because we're on the second floor, we've got really nice ocean views. One of the pool umbrellas is in the center of the picture, so you can see how close we are to the pool.







Nearby Golf and Tennis, and Ocean Views...

This is an arial view of the Grand Champions complex. The condos are located on the right in the photo, the Wailea Tennis club to the left, and the Wailea Blue Golf Course is to the front and right of the Grand Champions complex. Dave is an avid tennis player and can always find someone to play tennis with during our stays on Maui.

It's about a 15-minute walk to the Beach from our condo. We oftentimes walk down to catch the sunset or get coffee or ice cream. However, if we plan to go to the beach for the day, we drive to one of the many beaches that are about a 5-10 minute drive.


Steps to the Pool, Jacuzzi, and BBQ...

There are 2 pools in the Grand Champions Complex-each with a Jacuzzi. Our condo is located to the right in this photo and overlooks the pool.

You can see the community BBQ set up in the front of this picture. It's great fun to bring your dinner to the BBQ area in the evenings, and chat with folks from all over the world as you grill your dinner. We have met so many wonderful people this way. Being so close makes this almost as easy as grilling on your lanai.

Our living room is furnished with a sleeper sofa, a brand new flat panel TV, and two comfortable dark brown leather chairs. We have a DVD player and a few movies for relaxing after a day at the beach. There is also a stereo with a CD player, and a place to hook up your MP3 player, so bring your CDs or iPod along...

The closet is stocked with plenty of board games and a deck of cards. There are also many books left behind by both us and our past guests.


Our dining table has 4 chairs, but if you have more than 4 in your party, you can bring in the chairs from the Master Bedroom and the table will seat 6 comfortably.

There is also a teak dining table on the lanai with 6 chairs. Dave loves to BBQ so we spend many evenings dining on the lanai and watching the spectacular sunsets.

The kitchen BEFORE our remodel....

We've done a complete kitchen remodel and added solid wood cabinets, granite countertops with decorative tile backspashes, a new sink and faucet, and new stainless appliances (dishwasher, stove, refrigerator and microwave). The large refrigerator and professional grade stove have really made a difference to us as we LOVE to cook. The kitchen is even stocked with lots of spices, so you don't have to buy a whole jar of spices just to add a little oregano or garlic salt to your pasta.

The kitchen is fully furnished with new dishes, a nice set of hard-iononized pots and pans, coffee maker, rice cooker, blender, toaster, crock pot, henckel knives, bakeware, etc. Since we have a small child, we eat most of our dinners at home on our lanai, so the kitchen upgrade is our favorite.

While facing the kitchen sink, you have a view of the ocean - nice view as you're preparing dinner!

This is the view from the Master Bedroom. It's wonderful to wake up in the morning with a nice ocean breeze, and look out over the ocean. You can also watch the sunset in the evenings from bed. When there is a full moon, you can see the reflection of the water at night which is just beautiful! One of our recent guests told us that there was a huge lightening storm over the ocean one night, and they watched it from bed and it was just spectacular.....  



Comfortable Bedding....

Our Master Bedroom has a brand new California King mattress and new teak bedroom furniture. The sheets are 500 threadcount Pima cotton, and there is a fluffy white down comforter on the bed.....not that you need a down comforter in Maui, but it's wonderfully soft and looks great on the bed! Very very comfortable! In fact, one of our guests commented that the bed was so comfortable that they often overslept, and another asked us what brand the mattress was so that they could purchase the same bed for their home!



The Master has a look-off door for added privacy if desired. In this room is a flat panel TV with a DVD player, and a chair and footstool that is perfect for reading your favorite book.




We have provided an extendable table for a private breakfast, coffee, or an area to work on your computer if you would like to use our wireless high-speed internet.


The Master Bathroom BEFORE our remodel....


We have also remodeled the Master Bathroom. We've installed installed new cabinets, granite countertops with travertine backspashes, as well as new sinks and faucets. New wrap-around full height mirrors have also been installed.

There are lots of new fluffy towels, and a hair dryer is provided in each bathroom so no need to pack one!

There is a kitchenette off the Master bedroom with a small refrigerator, coffee pot, microwave, and an extra set of dishes. This is nice if there are people using the sleeper sofa in the living room- you can wake up, brew your coffee and walk out to the lanai off the Master Bedroom without having to walk to the Kitchen and disturb others in your party.  

...A Second Master or Room for the Kids

The Second bedroom has a brand new queen-sized bed and also a twin-sized daybed, which our 3-year old loves! The bedroom furniture is also new and is a dark seagrass. There are also 500 count Pima cotton sheets for this bedroom and another fluffy down comforter for the bed. There is a chair for reading, and a TV with a DVD player for this room.


In the Second Bathroom we've also installed installed new cabinets, granite countertops with travertine backspashes, as well as new sinks and faucets. New wrap-around full height mirrors have also been installed. There is a walk-in shower and also a separate bathtub in this bathroom.



You Don't Have to Buy It or Pack It!

In the Lanai closet we've provided beach chairs and beach towels, a cooler, and other supplies for a fun-filled day at the beach or pool. There is also a washer and dryer for your convenience. We even provide your laundry detergent!

Don't forget to catch sunrise at Haleakala, just breath-taking. But the cold and wind are just as breath-taking so we've provided some coats, gloves, and hats (believe us, you'll need them!) so you don't have to pack your own. Go the first day before you switch over to Hawaii time as you need to leave by 3AM to make it in time!


And the icing on the cake.....spectacular sunsets! They are different every evening and nothing short of spectacular. There isn't a better way to end your fun-filled day than with a cold drink watching the sun disappear over the Pacific from the lanai.

We invite you to be our guest and share our lovely piece of paradise with us!
