Welcome to our home away from home on the beautiful island of Maui. As residents of Seattle, we are a short six hours away and come to Maui as often as we can. We take pride in keeping our home clean and welcoming and hope that you find it inviting.

Scott Humanek purchased this condo in 2012

Having traveled to over 100 countries, we have had a chance to see the world and experience a lot that it has to offer. But something about Maui is special and always beckons you back. South Kihei is a laid back community enjoyed by all and the Maui Vista is in the heart of it - close to shops, restaurants, bars and beaches and a great 'home base' for all that Maui and the surrounding islands have to offer.

The views, location and the architectural 'bones' sold us on the home and we have invested to have updated luxury feel - and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. We have also added a number of touches including some of our own photos around Maui and other art from local artists.

We completed phase 1 of the renovations in the summer of 2013 (new flooring in the loft, an added ceiling fan and other improvements). We've also refreshed nearly all the furniture including a new queen-sized sofa sleeper to make it more comfortable for parties of 6, towels, linens, kitchen gadgets and more. The 2014 renovation underway includes new flooring on the main level, a new master closet, complete redesign of BOTH bathrooms and a completely redesigned kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, granite and bamboo (we'll post the new photos once work is complete in early August). There is also a photo of the new stainless dishwasher (in the pre-renovation kitchen) to give a preview of the future kitchen, but this is more than just a refresh it is a whole new design - including an island - very unique for Maui Vista!

GREAT PLACE TO BRING THE FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 12 days for my husband's 40th birthday and it was great! We own a smaller unit in Maui Vista Building 1 and what a nice change to be away from the road in Building 3...normally we have a lot of traffic noise but in this unit all you hear is the birds singing! Everything was stocked and ready for us, and there was plenty of room for our family of four. The kids loved having their own room and bathroom upstairs, and we got some great sunsets from the 4th floor lanai. We love Kihei, and we would definitely stay here again! Owners are wonderful, and the property management company was also friendly and helpful. Thank you for letting us share your home away from home...Aloha!

10 DAYS IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We spent 10 days at this condo. We had a great visit. The Master bedroom was very comfortable, the mattress was excellent. The Brita pitcher of fresh water was great to see when we got there and very useful during our stay. Cable, phone and internet services were top of the line. The unit is beautifully furnished. Access to the beaches, dining and everything else we wanted to do was excellent. Being away from the street, it was so pleasantly quirt, all we heard in the morning was the birds singing/ We definitely plan on returning to this wonderful condo.

PERFECT LOCATION AND WONDERFUL ACCOMMODATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
We spent over a week in Maui at this rental. It was myself, my husband, and our two sons ages 7 and 10. The little things made a big difference in our enjoyment of the condo. For example, we had a long day flying to Maui, stopped at Costco to get food for the week, and were pleasantly surprised that there was a cart to haul our stuff in and up the elevator to the place....making that part much easier than we expected. I was so thirsty when we finally got there, and I opened the fridge and discovered a full Brita pitcher of water to quench my thirst! Not to mention beach towels in the hall closet so we didn't have to bring those from home, or buy any there. There were also beach mats, an umbrella and an ice chest (with ice packs in freezer) which made our beach days fun and easy. (There is now a boogie board as well, my donation to future renters!)

The condo is decorated so nicely--beautiful Hawaiian bedding on comfortable beds, great photographs and Hawaiian art and other decor. The dishes were also very Hawaiian-themed, and there were plenty of everything so we didn't have to constantly be washing dishes. The view from the lanai was amazing! We were able to wash our clothes easily which kept our baggage to a minimum, a washer and dryer is so appreciated!

It was great having the free WiFi and BlueRay (we had brought movies from home). The unit was really airy and had enough fans so that we didn't ever have to turn on the air conditioning. We loved Maui Vista so much that we went to an open house on a lower floor, but it felt much smaller due to not having the lofty ceilings and the loft bedroom. The one we stayed in was so nice!

Location location location! In this trip and prior trips to Maui we have visited a lot of beaches, but I have to say that the beach closest (5-minute walk) from the unit is the best one on the island as far as I am concerned. Charlie Young beach had nice waves but not so big that I was worried about the kids all the time (like Makena Beach), it had showers to clean off, and on our last day we saw a huge sea turtle swimming along with us while we were playing in the waves. The building is set back from the main road, so there isn't any road noise, which made it really pleasant and upped the relaxing potential.

The owners and management company were great, as well. I recommend this place and will be back!

GREAT CONDO TO MAXIMIZE YOUR MAUI EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have enjoyed Maui on several occasions and stayed on various parts of the Island, most often staying in the Wailea area. This time we decided to go with a condo versus a hotel and to stay in Kihei. The location of Maui Vista Condos is really ideal, as it is across the street from Charley Young beach and you can walk either direction for other beaches, parks, restaurants, etc. We went for beach walks almost every morning and every night, with spectacular sunset (and moonset!) views. The unit itself is well done, very clean, had great furniture, very good beds and bedding, and overall made us feel welcome and comfortable. We didn't use the tennis courts or pools, but they were very close and the grill area is clean and a great option. We used the dishwasher, refrigerator, washer/dryer and all worked great and a definite advantage over hotels. From Kihei, we made several trips down past Makena for snorkeling, journeyed to Hana, visited the Tedeschi winery (would not recommend that winery trip), and up to the North shore area. This unit is a great place to make these day trips and then come back for a beach afternoon and sunset. One note: the office is closed over the weekend and the pools require a key which you need from the office, so if arriving on Sat. and you believe you will want to access a pool, you may want to check out your options. We skipped the pools for the short walk to the beach instead - so it didn't affect us. Overall, we were thrilled with selecting this condo and had an awesome trip to Maui/Kihei. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

Maui Vista is a few short steps away from the popular Charley Young Beach in sunny South Kihei. A short drive or 15 minute walk gets you to the best of Kihei shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment. The complex has an activity desk/concierge, but there are a variety of other activity desks along South Kihei Road to schedule popular excursions (snorkeling, paddle boarding, whale watching, etc.) The unit is in the highly desireable building 3 facing West/Northwest - views without the noise of South Kihei Road.

If you get a car (highly recommended) you can also access all the rest that the island has to offer - the road to Hana, the Bamboo forest, Old Town Lahaina, many world-class beaches and golfing and the crater at Haleakala just to name a few!
