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 rate table. We start what VRBO calls a "monthly" rate at 22 nights, not 30 or 31. Please contact us for a quote.

Now that I've got that 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

About Stafford or Nancy Lombard

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

Why Stafford or Nancy Lombard chose Kihei

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

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.

THE BEST

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from Maui Vista for 10 weeks. We absolutely love this condo, we have been coming to it for the last 5 years, and it feels like home. We have been coming to Maui for close to 30 years, and stayed at a lot of condos, but this condo and the owners, who make us feel like family our THE BEST! As you can tell from the other reviews, they provide everything that you would need for your stay! Great location, great beaches and close to restaurants.

Best Condo in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Condo was perfect and felt like home the minute we arrived. We stayed for 9 weeks. The owner's called to welcome us and made it clear, if we needed anything to call them. The kitchen was better stocked than ours at home. Free parking for one car, great WiFi, cable TV, long distance calling to US and a washer/dryer. All our paper products and cleaning supplies were provided. There was even three pounds of coffee. The location was great, easy walking to restaurants, shopping and the beach. All our beach going needs were met, ex. chairs, umbrella, coolers, carry bag for beach towels, towels and even a boogie board. For a long stay such as ours, all these amenities were very much appreciated. The condo is fairly priced and we will definitely stay again on our next visit.

Feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely stunning. It is right across the beach. Walk-able distance to shops, restaurants and grocery stores. It's very clean and has everything you can possibly need. Beach gear, tons of towels, cooking spices and ample cooking utensils/pots&pants dishes etc. Free parking for one car, Wifi and long distance calls to US/Canada. We spend every morning eating breakfast on the balcony to take advantage of the warm weather. The condo even has a washer/dryer. Like I said anything and everything you need, this condo has it all.

The booking process was very professional. There's even an app for your phone to check in. Nancy even called me to say hi and to check if everything is ok.

We loved this condo, it's well priced and we will definitely come back here again and stay at the Maui Vista.

Oh and another thing, go fuel up at Costco, its like 50cents cheaper than the regular gas station.

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.
