What Past Guests Are Saying
My husband and I enjoyed 10 days in this lovely studio. It is absolutely quiet (no street or neighbor noise) and peaceful. The location is perfect...minutes from the best beaches, shopping and restaurants. The weather in this part of Maui is great...little to no wind, clear skies, perfect temperature. A great experience.
This studio is in a great location, close to hotels, beaches, and the Shops at wailea. It was beautifully decorated and appears larger than most studios, given the large bathroom and spacious lanai. There were many extra amenities,including Tommy Bahama beach chairs! Although there is no stove, we did not want to eat out every night, as we were there for a month. The studio was equipped with microwave, electric fry pan, toaster oven, and rice cooker. It was also equipped with a dishwasher, which was unusual for a studio in this complex. Gail and Leon are wonderful people, who live nearby, and want to ensure you have a good time. Can't say enough about it, except we are already signed up for next year!
We certainly found a jewel here! We loved our place, the area and the beaches and shopping here. We will definitely come back again!
Gail was very pleasant and helped us out with some questions.

My husband and I recently went to Maui for our honeymoon. It was my first time there and I was really excited. After landing in Maui we took in the sights as we headed towards Wailea. When we walked into this lovely studio I immediately felt at home. It is quaint, comfortable and very clean. The bathroom is really cute and a very good size. We were able to enjoy some downtime in between activities the beach and the pool and everything is pretty close. The shops re within walking distance and if you aren't bringing too much to the beach you can walk there as well (we drove to some beaches further away from the studio). Loved this place and Gail was so easy to work with!
Excellent Location, Perfect accomodations for Two
We loved our stay at Wailea Escape. Gail had everything organized for us so it went very smoothly. The studio is perfectly decorated, very clean and even has beach chairs and umbrella, and a little cooler for our convenience. We enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai every morning and also appreciated what a short walk it was to the little mall. Gail also provides recommendations for where to eat which we used and were so thankful for. We will definitely return for our next trip to Maui. Our only negative was the bed was not comfortable. We told Gail about this and she is purchasing a new one so we'll be back!

Julie, Thank you for taking the time to post your review of Secret Studio. Yes, indeed, a new bed is arriving this week and we have upgraded to a king from a queen....New "Island Dreams" pillowtop mattress. No more worries about a comfortable bed.
Just a note that the current mattress, queen, was only 2 yrs old and we expected it to last and hold it's comfort level for a few more years, but we appreciate you letting us know so we can make the studio as comfortable as possible.

Quiet, Clean, Convenient, Comfortable and Excellent Value
The studio is exactly as Gail describes it! Gail helped out with great restaurant recommendations and was able to save the day (and dollars) by recommending a local rental car broker when the brand names were booked. Breakfast on the lanai was private and cozy. All appliances were it great working order and the washer/dryer were a real bonus. Gail keeps all the little extras you need stocked; cooler, masks/snorkels, beach mats & umbrellas. Pools and hotubs on the property were great. This was a great find!

Paradise at its best!
We always choose Gail's studio. For the price it is probably one of the best values of pricey Wailea. Always clean and inviting. We love hearing the birds wake us in the morning while we are have coffee on the lovely lanai. Since this is the best why look for anywhere else to stay? Gail is always available for questions and is also quite knowledgeable regarding Maui for places to eat as well as places to see. You can't beat it!
Quiet Maui Getaway
This condo was perfect. There was everything you could ever need in the kitchen, and beautiful, large bathroom and a gorgeous lanai to relax on. Gail was superb and right on in her directions and local advice. I couldn't have asked for a better placet to stay, close to the beach and away from the crowds.
Earthly accomodation in Paradise Lost
Clean comfortble place, fully equiped (I mean beach gear and kitchen appliances), with beautifull lanai overlooking lush garden, quiet, close to beaches, snorkeling places, shopping centers and retaurants. Wailea is the most enchanting part of Maui. Worth for money.

We were exhausted after a long trip and the detailed instructions that were provided ahead of time to us made it very easy to find the condo complex and our specific unit. The only negative we had was that we didn't have assigned parking and guest parking spots were limited. The unit itself was clean, comfortable and cozy. We totally enjoyed our stay. Would recommend this complex and this unit as a great place to vacation. It wasn't as large as some of the other units but it was okay for us and it was priced appropriately.
Response from Gail D - 03/24/2011
Thank you for taking the time to review our studio. We explain to our guests that parking is unassigned and let them know that sometimes they will be able to park at their front door and sometimes they may have to walk a bit to an available parking space. It is always fine to pull up to the front of your unit to load and unload.
This studio is the exact same size as all other studios in the complex. The larger units are one bedroom units. The studio size is a comfortable 400 + sq ft with 9 ft ceilings, full bath and private lanai. We allowed this reviewer to have a 3rd party in the studio so they could be close to their friends in another nearby unit. It is crowded with 3 people in a studio. But, it is very comfortable and accommodates 2 very well as our many returning couples have testified to.
If offers a larger kitchenette than many units and comes very well equipped. Many couples stay for weeks and months at a time and return again and again because it has all they need for an amazing price within Wailea.
What a wonderful place
A great place to stay in a beautiful location.
The studio has everything you would need for the perfect break.
It is a comfortable space with great amenities. The location is fantastic - just a short walk to the beach, the shops at Wailea and many nice restaurants. There is lots of parking as well, so you can hire a car and venture further a field.
We also enjoyed using the pool, there is a choice of two (one for children, one for adults) which is very convenient.
Gail was very helpful when planning and booking our trip, and made us very welcome. She was very prompt in responding to emails, and we got the deposit back very quickly.
I would love to go back again, and would recommend the secret studio to anybody.
Frequent Traveler from Seattle
Fabulous location and value
I have stayed three times in the studio units - twice alone and once with my sister. All 3 visits were wonderful. The Wailea location is great and the studio units are beautifully appointed. I will definitely be back.
This place is wonderful. The back patio is charming, full of beautiful flowers and wild bird sounds that can make it feel like you have a private house even though it is a condo. There are a number of nice touches like beach chairs, umbrellas, and a cooler, that makes this such a perfect home base. The grills by the pool are great if you don't want to always go out to eat, and you are near some amazing beaches! Gail is also a wonderful breath of fresh Aloha spirit for those of us coming from the mainland. She was very hospitable, leaving little surprises and gifts for her guests. She is very easy to work with, and the whole rental process was a breeze. The one thing you should know is that walking to the beach from this place is not super-easy or pleasant due to the Hawaii lack of sidewalks and poor urban planning. But, if you have a rental car, you are literally less than 5 minutes from some of the true Maui gems. At this price, I think it would be hard to do any better.
Great experience, very peaceful!
Great service. Everything was exactly as I expected. Excellent location in a
quiet community. I would love to get back as soon as possible!
Clean updated unit in a great location
I had an excellent stay and enjoyed the unit. It was very clean and updated. I would syay again.
Clean and cozy!
This little studio is within walking distance to shops and beaches, but hides away in a very well maintained and quiet area.
The studio itself is well maintained and super clean. Bed is very comfortable. The lanai is very private, surrounded by flowers and trees. We made great use of the cooler, beach chairs and beach towels included in the studio. Gail's tips on local attractions, restaurants are extremely useful! All in all, a great place to stay on Maui!
Secret Studio perfect getaway
We stayed in the Secret Studio last January and fell in love with Maui. We enjoyed the proximity to local beaches, dining and other attractions. After a day at the beach, there are many a short walk or drive away, the hot tub was always a hit. The property has BBQ's available for use, a great way to make dinner. With the amenities in the studio we were able to have coffee out on the deck at the table and listen to the wonderful bird songs all around. With the large glass door open you could hear the birds while the coffee was brewing. There are beach towels, cooler and a must for my girlfriend an umbrella for any trip you want to take. A quick walk to Matteo's across the street was a wonderful place to dine. There are so many great things about the Secret Studio, we can't wait to get back soon!!

Great Place to Relax in Wailea!
This little place in paradise is a find! It is in a quiet location in Grand Champions, one of the most beautiful properties in Wailea. The owners take pride in all of their units, which are nicely decorated and have every amenity that one may need. This studio is a bargain and makes for a great home base for all of your site seeing and adventure! My wife and I highly recommend this unit, as well as all of Gail's units at Grand Champions. All of the five star restaurants at the resorts are just a short walk away. And the sunsets in South Maui are nothing short of amazing.
Response from Gail D - 07/19/2009
Mahalo for taking the time to review Secret Studio and for your kind words. It has been such a pleasure welcoming the two of you year after year.... I look forward to seeing you soon.
