E komo mai meke aloha kakou!
Here’s a little “talk story” about our condo in the Maui Vista. We hope it will give you an accurate picture of our Maui home and help you make the best decision for your vacation.
We recently had guests who split their Maui vacation between our condo and another in the Maui Vista complex. When our guests returned home, they wrote us to say that, even though the other unit had just been remodeled and everything was brand new, they wished that they had been able to spend their entire vacation in our unit. He wrote “There is something magical about your condo. We loved it! We were comfortable and relaxed and had everything we needed and then some. We will be back!”
That seems to sum it up pretty well.
This condo is a magical place. It has good vibes, I think because it seems to draw exceptionally wonderful guests who leave the imprint of their happy memories and love of the islands for everyone who follows.
It’s true that you will have every supply that we can think of; the reviews wax eloquently about that feature, but I still need to tell you that the pillows are really good – and there are two down ones for those like me who use down pillows. It’s true that you will find an exceptionally clean condo; our managers send a re-inspector before each guest arrives to be certain that the housekeepers have done their usual outstanding job. It’s also true that we are continually upgrading the unit: new tile flooring; new vanity, vanity top, faucet, and towel bars; solid thermal pane windows replacing the drafty louvered ones; and new carpet are the most recent upgrades. We personally “visit” at least three times a year to restock and replace items that need replacing, clean the carpets and every little corner in the unit, touch up the paint, and organize cupboards and linens to our standards. (Some people think we are on vacation! Not so!)
What is also true is that our rates are very reasonable. Why? Because we very much want you to have a wonderful vacation that doesn’t break your personal bank. We used to live on the mainland and struggled every vacation to find a balance between the money we spent and the value we received on our Maui vacations. We found that we were able to have a wonderful vacation and manage our resources if we prepared many of our own meals (we brought many of our own supplies and kitchen gadgets and consequently learned to supply this condo with those items) and stayed at condos where we didn’t have to pay $15 or $20 a night for parking. We became hooked on condo vacationing, especially in wonderful Kihei.
Other information you might want to know: We are located on the second floor of building one, unit 1225. It’s an end unit and consequently is a little larger than most one bedroom units and has air conditioners in the living room and the bedroom. We have both a hide-a-bed and a queen Aerobed, the two layer kind with a headboard. We have electronic locks, the combination of which is changed for each new guest. We don’t charge you a fee if you pay by credit card and we don’t charge a cleaning fee if you stay four nights or longer. We also don’t require that you purchase damage insurance because we have never had guests who have damaged the unit. The Maui Vista does not have a resort fee or a check in fee. We do have professional managers, Maui Condo and Home, 800-822-4409, available 24/7 to handle issues that you might have. (Hawaii law requires that we have an on-island representative and we live on the Big Island) Maui Condo also handles all financial transactions for us. They do charge a $40 booking fee to our guests.
Of course you have access to the pools, barbecues, and the tennis courts at the Maui Vista, and are just steps from Charlie Young Beach, one of the best beaches on the island. Just grab the beach chairs, the umbrella, beach towels and cooler and, in fewer than five minutes, you're on the beach!
We purchased this condo in 2002. We have upgraded it, maintain and supply it in what we think is an exceptional manner, and offer it to you for your vacation on the wonderful island of Maui.
Try us, you won’t be disappointed.
A hui hou,

We're Hawaii residents - we live in Keaau, Big Island, just south of Hilo Town. We moved here from the Seattle area (go Mariners!) a few years ago. Stafford is retired, or as retired as one can be when building a house in Hawaii. Nancy works part time on a grant for the Research Corporation of the University of Hawaii and occasionally teaches professional development classes.
We love Maui, it's our favorite vacation spot. We bought this condo to enjoy ourselves and to share with friends, ohana, and you.
We bought at the Vista because we love sunny Kihei, the grounds are beautiful, the cost to buy and consequently to rent to you was reasonable, and the beaches are oh so close. We are lucky to have an excellent AOAO manager, security is very good (and very quiet at night), and there's plenty of free parking.
Unique benefits? We are welcoming you into our home and provide for your comfort with this in mind. You will be comfortable and feel like you are coming home at the end of your glorious Maui day.
