The bathroom is completely tiled with double towel bars, towel hangars for after the beach, and plenty of room in the shower/tub with a custom curtain rod. Dim the lights for some ambiance, or to set the mood. The living room and dining area are spacious and the round glass table provides seating for four, plus you have the extra added factor of the peninsula, and additional seating for two. Enjoy the comfort of the queen sofa sleeper. Relax and put your feet up on the comfortable ottoman while you converse with your guests, or catch the latest sports on the 47' LCD tv.

My wife Kathy and I started coming to Kihei when our daughter was born in 1983, our son learned to walk on the sands of Maui in 1986. We lived in Alaska for around 30 years, and constantly vacationed in Kihei in order to have the other beautiful extreme. About two years ago we moved to Seattle to be closer to our daughter, her family, our new granddaughter and our family in the Pacific Northwest. Our son lives with his family on Maui, in Kahului, and we have two grandkids there. All the more reason to spend even more time on Maui. We chose Kihei for its beautiful weather, and the proximity to so many awesome beaches and things to do directly in the area. The location can't be beat!

Stephen purchased this condo in 2012

We chose Maui Vista because we have stayed there several times, and have completely enjoyed our experiences. Maui Vista is a great property, the buildings are small, not a huge complex, and each of the three buildings has its own pool, tennis courts, and barbeque areas. The grounds are well maintained, beautiful plants, flowers, and birds abound. The units are nice and quiet because they are located off the main road, and the parking is excellent. More importantly is the location. It's within walking distance to three major beaches, and an awesome park. It's a short walk either North or South to restaurants, shops, bars, and grocery stores. Within a short driving distance is the resort area of Wailea with world class shopping, resorts, beaches, and golf courses. Oh, and did I mention beaches? Snorkeling, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, surfing, wind-surfing, scuba diving, turtles, whale watching. This place is awesome!

Kihei, and Maui Vista have unique characteristics, one of the most important is the weather, it rarely rains here. The condo and the complete renovation allowed us to start from scratch, and to make it the way we wanted, modern, and welcoming, with total comfort in mind. The views are awesome, and the location is one of the best on Maui. So many things to do in either a two, five, or ten minute walk. Two minutes away there is beautiful Charley Young beach. Bring the beach chairs, mats, towels, and cooler, everything is provided, and enjoy! Five and ten minutes away are more awesome beaches, surfing, paddle boarding, beautiful parks, shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores, and that's just if you are walking. A short drive either way brings you to golf, horseback riding, galleries, restaurants, resorts, walking and jogging trails, and any other beach and sea-type activity you desire.

Exactly as pictured and advertised

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this condo for 8 days in June. We also got married during this time, at Charley Young Beach, across the road.

The condo is the second building from the road so there is very little noise from the road. The condo is well decorated and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The AC unit is located off the balcony, which is at the opposite end of the bedroom. We kept the bedroom door open (it was just the two of us) to ensure that the cold air would reach the bedroom. There is a ceiling fan in the bedroom and a stand-up fan that came in handy. Internet was fast and reliable.

There is a concierge for the resort who could make various arrangements from surf lessons to massage appointments. We did not make use of the concierge service though. We did not use the pool or tennis courts but they looked clean and well maintained. We preferred the ocean. We used the BBQ on a couple of nights. The kitchen was well equipped. The dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer were very convenient.

Booking of the condo went smoothly. We liked that there was no cleaning or resort fee, which many other resorts charge. Beach chairs, cooler, boogie boards, and umbrella made visits to the beach very comfortable.

Overall, we would recommend this unit to friends and family. We particularly liked that the unit was tiled, with no carpet anywhere.

First Vacation Withoout Kids!!

  • 5 of 5
Great condo, convenient location, extra amenities such as free laundry & bbq area, beach towels and lunchbox cooler were very useful. Enjoyed use of the tennis courts for a nominal fee as well. Condo is close to bus routes, groceries, shopping, entertainment and the nearby beach was fantastic. Boss Frogs is a great place to rent bikes (impressed with the island's designated bike lanes everywhere) & snorkels, Kihei Cafe has fabulous breakfasts(huge pancakes), many places walking distance for happy hour mai tais, Starbucks is walking distance. Excellent resource in the "Maui Revealed" book in the condo that traveled with us everywhere. This condo was a perfect place for our first vacation without kids! Highly recommended! We are already thinking of when we can return and stay at 432500! Thanks Steve & Kathy!

Good PLUS or Excellent-

  • 4 of 5
We have come to Maui for 9 years now - about once a year. We've lost count! We have stayed in various places but w/family & grandkids there, location is as important as comfort. This time, the location & comfort rates an A+. I liked where the unit was located, the closeness to family as well as the beaches & places to eat - w/or without a car (we had a car)!

I know they updated the unit & it showed! MUCH appreciated! It was CLEAN when we arrived. I trust we didn't bring in too much SAND!

The only reason I don't give it 5-starts (4 & 3/4th**'s) just tweak the unit a bit. Heck, we come to Maui NOT to stick or stay around a place. You want it to sleep well, be efficient & effective with all the NEEDS like towels, washer/dryer, kitchen & stuff. But for a 5-start A+ rating, I would suggest:

*-Get a better corkscrew. Get "TWO!" I had ... no everyone had a problem opening bottles of wine unless they were twist tops!
*-I hated the TV! Finding channels & figuring it out (we were there almost 2 weeks) took a while. Double channels, one in HD & the other in some form of HD drove me crazy! I did figure it out - & I watched less TV, but we were NOT on Maui to watch TV! But still, make it easier! I'd pay an extra $5 a day for better & SIMPLER access to TV viewing.
*-The sleep couch, no one slept on it, but it & the chairs were not very comfy. Yet, after the investment in the things that REALLY matter (the bed & other cosmetic upgrades - one can understand why or how this will come later. (-: I am just saying or suggesting!) I do have back issues - so sitting is something I work on!
*-A better coffee maker (Cuisinart)? I'd suggest a carafe style that one doesn't have to worry about turning off! Saves energy & overly heated coffee! Maybe that is just ME!
*-Could the bathroom have more air flow so when it gets real warm the whole place is not so hot! (we were lucky during our visit it was the coolest I have every been on Maui!)

These are "MINOR" things. Who comes to Maui to sit in a unit to watch TV, drink wine, stay in the shower, or sit around on furniture! Again, we appreciated the fact the unit was CLEAN, upgraded, well positioned in the 2nd building, close to many things - if one can walk or likes to walk too), near our family, & a great/well done upgrade!

We are planing when we will return in 2015. Hopefully this unit will be available again. We'd want to rent it again!

Peace & Love,
Keys!

Would stay again as unit is very homey comfortable, chairs, couch bed etc, plus all the kitchen extras. The rental agency Paradise Vacations are the best to deal with.

Best Location!!!

We stayed in this condo for a month & loved it. It was exactly like the pictures, clean & modern. Charley Young Beach is just across the street & we spent plenty of time there. The building is quiet & well taken care of. The pool isn't that big but still cools you down when you need to go for a dip. Restaurants & shops are within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again & recommend it to anyone wanting to go to Maui. Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful condo.

Fair to Partly Cloudy

  • 3 of 5
We travel to Maui several times per year and always over Christmas. We've stayed at a handful of the condo complexes - Hale Kamaole, Maui Vista, Kihei Akahi and Shores of Maui. This was our second visit to Maui Vista, not the same unit as before. This condo is good for Maui standards, it's updated, a nice mattress and there is wifi; however the living room sofa is placed in front of the only Air Conditioning in the unit which makes it very difficult (i.e., impossible) to cool the bedroom. However, the area next to the sofa is igloo-like.
MY PROBLEM WITH THE CONDO??? It's advertised/marketed as partial ocean view. I inquired specifically about this in my communication with Paradise vacations prior to booking and was assured I could see the Pacific. BE WARNED: THERE IS NOT ANY OCEAN VIEW. Even if you hung off the second story balcony like a Cirque du Soleil acrobat you would be hard pressed to see any part of the ocean. The condo faces a tennis court and small complex pool only. No ocean. Repeat, no ocean.
If this would had been revealed to me as such, I would not have any issue. I do not appreciate being misled and falsely advertised.
Following my visit I followed up with the Paradise Vacation folks and shared this with them and they told me that the view is seasonal, depending on heights of trees, etc. Lies all lies.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review on our condo at Maui Vista. There is a tree located about two blocks down, towards the ocean from our condo. Depending on the season, and when the Maui County tree trimmers get to it (remember they are on Maui time) the view opens up to the ocean. We will, however, make the proper changes to the Paradise listing, and change it to a garden view. In no way would we like to have our property misrepresented. Regarding the AC, we are greatly pleased with the cross-ventilation in our condo when you open up one jealousy window in the living area, plus one in the bedroom. There are also two excellent ceiling fans to use, one in the bedroom, and one in the living area. We have found that with this setup AC is rarely needed, however if necessary, proper placement of the sofa away from the AC unit works tremendously. We have instructed our cleaners to make sure the sofa is positioned correctly in order to optimize the AC function. Periodically the furniture does get moved due to guests preferences, however we will make sure that all is positioned correctly before each vacationer arrives. Once again, thank you so much for your constructive comments.

Our Condo is centrally located for everything that makes Maui such an exciting destination. World-class beaches within minutes. Opportunities for surfing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, snorkeling and diving just minutes away. Short drives bring you to the Maalea Harbor for whale watching, snorkeling and scuba tours, plus a fantastic Ocean Center/Aquarium. Further North is the whaling village of Lahaina for shops, restaurants, galleries, and more, continuing North are the beautiful resort and golf areas of Kaanapali and Kapalua. There are awesome beaches in this area for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding,and turtle viewing.

To the South within a 5 minute drive is the resort area of Wailea, which has world-class golf, shops, restaurants, galleries, resorts, beaches, and a beautiful walking, jogging path that hugs the coastline. Further South is Makena beach, one of our favorites, Makena is just beautiful with pristine sands, and beautiful, tourqoise water. Great coves and bays for snorkeling, diving, turtling, and surfing are abundant if you continue on. For the adventurous this road winds all the way around the island to Hana.

Up Country on Haleakala is the quaint/cowboy town of Makawao, which has all kinds of great shops, galleries restaurants, and hosts its own July 4th rodeo. Pukalani, and Kula, where much of the islands fresh produce is grown, are equally fun to explore.

On the North side of the Island is the hip community of Paia, which has fantastic shops, excellent restaurants, and a great artist community. Lots of fun things to do and experience here. Further East is the world-class windsurfing of Hookipa, a must see, and experience. Continuing on the winding road leads to waterfalls, botanical parks, hiking, state parks, and the community of Hana, all in all, a wonderful experience.
