COMFY DELUXE CONDO WITH GREAT AMENITIES RIGHT ACROSS FROM BEACH

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 3-4)

Condo, 1 Bedroom with Queen bed + Queen sofa bed + twin murphy bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4+)

You'll feel the luxury, love and detail we put into our condo when you first open the door. If you want to pamper yourself while in Maui -- you'll love our unit. Too many little extras to list here.

Our completely remodeled end unit located on the 2nd floor of building 2 in Maui Vista Resort was renovated in October 2011. Our one bedroom, one bath, condo was remodeled from top-to-bottom. New ceilings, new paint, new tile flooring throughout, new en suite washer and dryer, new Cherry wood kitchen cabinets, and granite counter tops.

We have tried to think of everything that you'll need in order to feel at home and have the best vacation while in Maui. The condo is equipped with a full size refrigerator with an ice and water dispenser in the door, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, plenty of cooking utensils, ice coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards for your use during your stay, tennis rackets, a coffee maker, Kerig machine and a hair dryer (so you don't have to pack one). In the event you have an unexpected guest we have also included an aerobed for your use.

The unit will accommodate 2-4+ guests, with a queen size bed fitted with an Island Dreams Waialea luxury mattress, a queen size sofa/sleeper and a twin size Murphy bed. Also included are flat screen televisions in both the living area and bedroom with cable TV and DVD players, telephone service (local and long distance to the US & Canada), high speed internet access (Wi-Fi or ethernet connections) at no additional cost. Air conditioning units and ceiling fans are included in both the main living area and bedroom for your comfort.

Just a 1-2 minute walk across the street to the beach. The resort is located across the street from the famous Kamaole Beach I (locally known as Charley Young Beach). There are three swimming pools on the property, six individually enclosed tennis courts (two per building), and gas-fired grills for each building. You will find that our unit is conveniently located to the building's pool (a view from the lanai), 2 tennis courts, and gas-fired grill. Elevators in each building so no stairs to navigate. Parking is also available on site and free!

For golfers, courses like Wailea Golf Club, Makena and Ka'anapali make for plenty of world class golf on this island.

***This property is owner operated and doing business as Maui Vista Escape and is licensed and permitted to collect applicable taxes and do business under State of Hawaii Department of Taxation #W21971397-01***

We live in the State of Washington on the Eastside. We both work in the public sector when we aren't in Maui. Between us we have six children and two beautiful grandchildren. Most of our children have left the roost and half are college students (here and elsewhere). Our family is our greatest gift and sense of pride. We spend most weekends with our children in the area and our young grandchildren, Lola & Sheldon.

Randal Sitton and Diane Grecco purchased this condo in 2011

We started traveling to Hawaii in 2004. We have been to all the islands, and when we married in 2005, we married in Poipu, Kauai. We then cruised the islands for our honeymoon (including Maui). We continued to return to Hawaii and Maui for family vacations and special occasions. Maui is one of our favorite islands. We decided to purchased a condo in Maui because we hope that one day it will be our retirement haven. We really love Maui and the relaxing pace, as well as, the lovely beaches and activities. So when we were trying to decide where we'd like to purchase a condo -- the decision wasn't that hard.

We had a few things we wanted in our condo, and we weren't willing to compromise. We wanted to be in Kihei, where the weather is absolutely gorgeous year round. We wanted the complex to have elevators so people with disabilities or limitations could enjoy our home without restriction or inconvenience. We wanted the property to have a tropical resort feel. We wanted to be nearby one of our favorite beaches, Charley Young, and Kam II as well. Maui Vista Resort was the perfect fit for us.

In Maui Vista Resort, we found everything we wanted and then some. We are just a 1-2 minute walk from the beach, the tropical grounds with the lush vegetation are maintained to the highest level, parking is a breeze, the location is central to everything, and yes, we have an en suite washer/dryer (not something available in many complexes).

It was not our original plan to offer our condo as a vacation rental but we wanted to share what we had with others. In doing this, it has been a lot of work but definately a labor of love. Hearing how much our guests have enjoyed our condo and recognizing our 'attention to detail' has been most gratifying.

What a beautiful condo. It is close to the Charley Young Beach, one of the nicest beaches in Maui. The condo is close to food stores, drugstores and many places to eat. The free long distance came in handy as our son in law got a collapsed lung back home. We were able to keep in good contact with the way things were going Thank You. Fridge, stove, dishwasher, clothes washer & dryer came in real handy. Lots of dishes, utensils, BBQ utensils ect. We are already looking at next year. We even cleaned the condo before we left because we treated as if was our own home. The beach chairs and the beach umbrella could be updated. We really enjoyed our three week stay and wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be getting in touch with Randy & Diane About our next stay

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the Maui Vista a number of times and this condo has so far been our favorite. It was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and had everything a person could want. The Vista is situated close to the beach, restaurants and grocery stores. If I had to ask for one thing - it would be that the beach chairs are upgraded - other than that we can't wait to go back!

Beautiful Condo Steps Away From The Beach

  • 4 of 5
Our visit to Maui wouldn't have been as wonderful if it weren't for this beautiful condo! As stated in just about every review, Diane and Randy definitely thought of EVERYTHING someone visiting the island will need during their stay. From the beach gear, fishing rods, full appliances, and much more, the small details made this condo feel like a home away from home. During our stay, we had a small problem with ghost ants due to the dry Maui weather, but other than that everything about the condo was great. There are 3 beaches within walking distance of the condo, and the pools onsite are always empty. There are also many restaurants and small shops within walking distance of the condo. Overall, we were very satisfied and will definitely consider this condo for our next visit.

Good vacation stay, but with a slight catch

  • 4 of 5
This vacation rental is definitely in an excellent location. The most northern side entrance to Kamaole I Beach is just across the street and then a very short block over. The amenities and extras such as the washer/dryer, filtered water from the fridge, beach umbrella etc. made our vacation super comfortable. We were awed by how beautiful the condo looked when we walked in. However, we were disappointed near the end of that first night when we were getting ready for bed. It appears that the bedsheets and pillowcases were unwashed; they smelled dirty/slept in. Likely, the guests who stayed before us did not take the bedsheets off at the end of their stay, so the person who came in to tidy the apartment probably just made the bed and left it at that. When staying at this rental, there is no maid service, so during your stay, you are required to wash your own towels, wash your own bedding, etc. We did not trust whether things were actually clean or whether they were just re-folded and put away. So we stayed up an two extra hours that night doing a load of bedding and towels. And then even cleaning the bathroom a little just in case because there was a slight smell. Although I do recommend this property, I do it while also recommending to the owners to invest in another cleaning arrangement for their guests, since they do not live on the island, and have to entrust the cleaning of the condo to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice comments you shared.

We are working with our cleaning professional about the concern you had when you arrived. We have used the same cleaning professional for over the past year without a single concern being reported regarding the quality, in fact we have heard multiple comments regarding the cleanliness of service she provides. We do understand that glitches may happen or problems may develop, so we are looking into what may have caused your concern. We appreciate your bringing this concern to our attention so we may promptly review it and provide the best service we can for our guests.

Kihei's central location makes it easy to get to other parts of the island and Kihei is known to be one of the hottest places to stay on Maui (temperature-wise) because it doesn't get the breezes that other parts of the island get (perfect for that winter getaway). During the winter months, whales can sometimes be spotted from the shore.

Kihei is a sprawly place, strung out along the coast for several miles but never more than a mile wide. The main road north-south along the ocean is South Kihei Road and it contains almost all the hotels, condos, restaurants, shops and beaches. So if you don't mind a bit of walking, you can probably get to most things you need without needing a car. If you do drive, the strip malls have their usual adequate free parking although individual restaurants and beaches may not.

Most of Kihei's restaurants and grocery stores are strung out along South Kihei Road (the main drag). There are both supermarkets and smaller food shops along South Kihei Road. Some of the supermarkets can also serve as a restaurant as they sell warm cooked food that is cheaper (and sometimes tastier) than what you find in restaurants. With your own kitchen and the BBQ grill outside your door -- you can enjoy home cooking.

Maui Vista Resort is an affordable vacation condo resort located in Kihei. A beautiful 10-acre resort, lush gardens, well-maintained property with 3 pools, 6 tennis courts, BBQ & picnic areas. Kamaole I Beach is across the street (a short 2-3 minute walk). Kam I (also known as Charley Young)is known as the best swimming beach, crystal clear water & gentle waves. Outside showers are also provided at Kam I. The condo itself is fully equipped including washer/dryer, TVs/DVDs & air-conditioners.

Lots to do: Go sailing, Kai Kanani Sailing Charters, 34 Wailea Gateway Pl Ste A105, 808-879-7218. Go snorkeling. There is some nice coral around Kamaole Beach Park III or take one of the snorkel cruises that depart from the Kihei Boat Ramp. You can rent or buy snorkel gear a local shops like Snorkel Bob's and Maui Dive Shop but we also provide some snorkel gear in our condo. Go swimming at one of the many beaches. The trio of Kamaole Beaches - Kamaole Beach Park I, II and II - are probably the nicest of the Kihei beaches. They each have their own changing rooms although parking is limited if you bring a car. When in Hawaii, a luau is always a nice excursion which features Polynesian music and dancing. Several resorts host them on various nights of the week. Most also feature a buffet dinner.

Visit Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, this is a good place observe Hawaii's endangered wetland birds, along with a diversity of feathered visitors from as far away as Alaska and Canada, and occasionally from Asia. Best season to visit is the winter. Best time of day is in the morning. Of course, a walk along the beach, morning, noon, at sunset, or at night, is always relaxing and beautiful. For those early birds, don't forget to catch the sunrise from the top of Haleakala. Maui isn't a large island, so you can go anywhere from Kihei as a day trip.

Nearby, heading south on the Pi'ilani Highway, is the resort community of Wailea and the beautiful beaches of Makena. Further south, with snorkeling and hiking opportunities, is Ahihi Reserve and La Perouse Bay.

Heading out of town on North Kihei Road will provide access to the old whaling town of Lahaina and the resort areas of West Maui.

Heading north on the Mokulele Highway will bring you into the central part of the island, where you can hike or catch the sunrise (or sunset) in Haleakala National Park, drive the Road to Hana, hit the beaches on Maui's north shore or head upcountry and visit Maui's only winery.
