LOVELY TROPICAL RETREAT! SPOTLESS AND AMAZINGLY WELL EQUIPPED. FROM $595 A WEEK

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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. But first, I need to say something about the new rate table. It's confusing. I was unable, even with lots of help from VRBO, to show rates the way we charge. It seems simple to me: we have high season and low season, and different rates for under a week, a week to 20 nights, and over 21 nights. But we can't show the way we charge with the new rate tables. Please write and ask us for a quote.

Now that I've got that little rant out of the way, here's information about our condo:

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.

We do take very good care of the condo and keep it updated. Here's what's new as of June 2014: we removed the popcorn ceiling - it looks so nice! We replaced the interior doors with raised six-panel ones and new hardware. We replaced the bedroom dresser and night stands (now we have night chests - more drawers for storage, helpful for guests who stay longer), and we bought a new living room air conditioner.

In addition to the June 2014 upgrades, in 2013 we added new tile flooring; a new vanity, vanity top, faucet, and towel bars; solid thermal pane windows that replaced the drafty louvered ones (and help keep the unit very quiet); and a new mattress, springs and bed (headboard and frame); and in 2012, replaced the carpet. 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!)

As you can tell from the reviews, you will have every supply that we can think of; 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. You will also 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.

People do ask us why we keep our rates so reasonable. It's 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!

Try us, you won’t be disappointed.

A hui hou,

Nancy and Stafford

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Stafford & Nancy,



I just wanted you to know how much David & I enjoyed our stay at your condo in Kihei. You forgot absolutely nothing which made our stay carefree. We especially enjoyed the chairs and umbrella for the beach since we are no longer tanning bunnies. The location was great and when we didn't feel like driving, it was so nice to just walk across the street to the beach. We will certainly recommend your place to others and I'm so happy Dawn made the recommendation to us. I'm not sure we'll return to Kihei next time as I think I have David convinced to try Kauii next time. He had only been to Honolulu (4 times) before venturing to Maui this time!



Thanks again. We had a wonderful time.

Aloha!

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 managing an acre of yard, fruit trees, and pineapples in Hawaii. Nancy works part time on a suicide prevention grant funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration through the Research Corporation of the University of Hawaii and occasionally teaches professional development classes (It feels like more than occasionally lately!).

We love Maui, it's our favorite vacation spot. We bought this condo to enjoy ourselves and to share with friends, ohana, and you.

Stafford or Nancy Lombard purchased this condo in 2002

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.

GREAT LOCATION, SUPER CLEAN!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is in a great location - easy across the street access to Charlie Young Beach, which is a great beach for swimming, walking, and relaxing. The condo was very clean, and the kitchen was well supplied with all the accouterments one could need (including spices) to whip up dinner, etc. The condo also has all the beach gear one needs to make a tropical vacation easy. My husband loved the vast selection of pillows for sleeping! The owners were very nice and helpful, and answered any questions we had promptly.

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Nancy and Stafford, for your very comfortable condo. The location was just superb - across the street from the beach - a 2 min walk and with all the stores and restaurants you need! It is also a good central location in Maui to drive and see the rest of the island. The condo contained EVERYTHING you would ever need. We really appreciated the beach towels, chairs and snorkeling equipment. We highly recommend your place to anyone.

THE BEST!!!

  • 5 of 5
Nancy and Stafford,
Thank you for making our 20th wedding anniversary so special at Maui Vista! Everything you could think of is provided for from snorkeling, beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels...The list goes on. We love the location right next to the beach, shopping and a variety of restaurants when we chose not to cook at the condo. We love Kihei! Such a cool town. During our stay we went to a friend's wedding in Kaanapali. While it is nice with big hotels it just felt much more 'touristy' then Kihei.
Loved your place, the location and Maui.
We'll be scheduling next year's trip at your place soon!

GREAT UNIT!

  • 5 of 5
This unit was by far the best we have stayed in.It is extremey well stocked,quiet,loved
fact it was on second floor so we didn't need the elevator.A quick walk to the lovely beach.
The free phone service to Canada was great as I was able to check on my elderly mother
a couple of times.All in all can't think of anything that could be improved upon.

BEST CONDO IN KIHIE

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in one other unit in Maui Vista, but this one is really great!! The location is very convenient to parking, nice balcony view of lawn, gardens flowers and Palm trees.We were most pleasantly surprised to find a totally upgraded, newly renovated suite with all new
modern, top quality appliances, new granite counter tops, new ceramic floor tile, living room carpet and all areas repainted. Top quality cabinet, large spacious closets. A very good queen bed and linens .Bath and beach towels, carry bags etc. We especially appreciated the keyless entry system!! Great idea!! All closets were very well stocked with 4 beach chairs and a new "body board. Large new TV in living room and smaller one in bedroom, both with DVD players, and an excellent stereo system. Were always comfortable day and night, with only once using the A/C for an hour at 6pm, on an 84 degree day!!Kitchen cabinets were extremely well equipped with all our needs.
The convenience to the very BEST beach anywhere!! We just love Charley Young Beach.

Thank you Nancy and Stafford --we just love your condo and hope some day to return!!
Aloha - K & C
