• This is one of the very few Maui Vista units with air conditioning in BOTH the bedroom and living/dining/kitchen area. An 18,000 BTU a/c was installed in the living area and a 12,000 BTU a/c was installed in the bedroom recently. No other unit has this much cooling power. Ceiling fans disperse the cool air and add to the romantic atmosphere which is Maui.
• Upgraded ground floor Maui Vista Resort one bedroom condo #3104 is located in 'the quiet building'. . . the third building back from any Kihei Rd. noise. The very private ceramic tiled 10' x 13' lanai patio (only available with ground floor units) features a glass top table with 4 chairs and a lush tropical garden view.
• The solid maple cabinetry is custom made. The new, tiled bathroom has the same Hansgrohe wallbar shower found in many 5-star hotels; the tub is slip resistant and has a grab rail for your safety. The kitchen is complete with a full size refrigerator and oven, microwave, dishwasher ~ plus all the utensils, cookery and dishes you'll ever want. The stacked washer/dryer is closeted neatly away. There's also a coffee maker - even a hair dryer. Newly carpeted throughout, it also has a ceramic tiled kitchen, bath and lanai.
• A 32' Vizio HDTV as well as a DVD/CD player were recently installed • High speed WiFi internet access is provided at no cost • There's even a TEAC stereo FM that has an iPod dock.
• Famed, sandy, swimming, Kamaole Beach I (known locally as Charlie Young Beach) is directly across Kihei Rd. opposite building #1. There is a slight walk after crossing the road (maybe 100 yards to a staircase down to the beach.) Beach towels, beach chairs and a 7' Tommy Bahama beach umbrella are provided. In fact there are two boogie boards and 3 snorkel sets in the hall closet. There are even some trashy paperbacks in the closet above the water heater.
• Going out for dinner? The gas-fired BBQ, scrupulously cleaned each morning, is within 100 ft. of your entryway.
• One of three swimming pools on the property is within 75 ft. of the lanai. For tennis, six individually enclosed Plexipave® championship courts (two per building) are just footsteps away. Racquet and ball rentals are available at the front desk. For golfers, 3 world class courses at Wailea are minutes away.
• Parking? It's on site and it's free.

Since retiring from his advertising and graphic design career, Jim has been promoting his three Maui condo rentals through this and his own website.
To satisfy his creative appetite, he joined the Honolulu Printmakers. In a workshop environment Jim has learned printmaking techniques including engraving, etching, aquatint, embossing and photogravure. Jim's efforts in these areas have resulted in his works being included in the juried Honolulu Printmakers Annual shows since 2005. In the '05 Annual Show, he was awarded the HonBlue purchase award.
In March 2007, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT held their Sixth Annual Miniature Print Biennial in which Jim was awarded third prize. 130 works were displayed out of 548 entries from 180 artists living in 18 countries. The judge was the esteemed David Kiehl, curator of prints at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. The show got an upbeat review in the Arts and Entertainment section of the April 29, 2007 Sunday New York Times. The reviewer described the print 'Fantasy Hibiscus,' as a 'lush, colored photogravure of a flower by Jim Egan from Hawaii, striking a balance between mastery of technique and innovation.'
My golf game? That's a whole other story!
My first introduction to Maui Vista Resort was when I was retained by the Board to prepare a national advertising campaign promoting the property. The objective was to create a positive image and reach travel agents as well as the public at large. If successful, the campaign would no doubt raise the value of the property. So I decided to 'put my money where my mouth is' and proceeded to buy my unit. Apparently I've been good for the property. And clearly the property has been good for me.
Now that the new kitchen and bath have been installed, I take great pride in my unit. Also, the lanai is very private, so I eat breakfast out there quite a bit when I'm making use of the condo. Just listening to the birds and enjoying the quiet away from the bustle of Honolulu. Of course I love the proximity to the beach, so I sometimes stroll down late in the day and join some Maui friends to take a swim. Then maybe get together for BBQ right on the property.
