About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Hello and Welcome to Maui. We're here to help make your stay on Maui the best. This Non-Smoking condo has been completely remodeled. This condo has been in the family since 1981. We've tried to include everything you'll need to be comfortable. My sister Terri cleans the condo and has a reputation for being the best. She's been cleaning at Maui Vista since it was built in 1980. Everything is clean and in order. Linens, Towels, New washer and dryer, new quiet Bosch dish washer. The kitchen is well equiped. Air conditioner, ceiling fans and high speed internet. Plus Digital Phone that allows you unlimited long distance calls anywhere in the US and Canada.

Maui Vista has 3 buildings. Our condo is in the front building facing the ocean on the bottom floor in the middle of the building. Charley Young ' beach is right across the street. We're a block away from ' The Cove ' where you can rent surf or paddle boards and snorkel gear and you can take surfing lessons right there. The ' Maui MarketPlace ' is a block away from The Cove where you can eat local food and shop for local crafts. There's lots of places to eat and shop within walking distance from the condo. Maui Vista Resort is centrally located in the heart of Kihei and is surrounded by sandy beaches. Great for little kids. Maui Vista Resort has one of three pools right in front of our condo, barbecues and tennis courts are right in back of the condo. This is a popular condominium. The landscaping is beautiful. We're close to Wailea, and Maui is the place to be if you golf, surf, windsurf, fish or dive. Mahalo and Enjoy. Greg and Janet Jones

Why Greg Jones chose Maui

Maui Vista Resort is right in the middle of Kihei. It's a beautiful property. It has all the amenities you'll need right on the property. Pools, BBQ's and Tennis courts and free parking.

What makes this condo unique

Well, our condo is a little different. It's fun! The pool is right out the door and across the grass. We're on the bottom floor so you don't have to take an elevator or stairs to get to your unit. Suitcases and groceries can be heavy. So no going up and down to get back to the pool, BBQ's or Tennis Courts. Their right outside the door. It's great because when you want to BBQ, it's easy to carry your food and dishes right out the door. Very easy.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

On the positive side Maui Vista is a great location. Close to the beach, restaurants and shopping within walking distance from our room. All the beach gear needed was provided and neatly stored in a closet. The kitchen was adequately stocked with dishes and cooking necessities. Plenty of towels and linens provided. Patio was sunny and we enjoyed breakfasts out there.

The condo itself was not sunny. The renovated bathroom had a great shower but the lighting was dismal. The lighting was inadequate in most of the rooms except the kitchen. No light over the dining room table made it hard for playing games at night with our friends. The bed was too soft, the carpet needed cleaning and as pointed out in other reviews there was considerable road. noise.

It may be okay for a few nights but I would not book this condo again for the three week stay we enjoyed on the island.

Owner's Response: Oh well, You can't please them all. I did end up with a broken tile in the hallway. It was not mentioned. I will use your comment to look for ways to address those areas. Mahalo.

The property was in good condition. It is bigger and has more room than the internet shows.

  • 4 of 5

The unit was easy to find. We arrived on a Sunday. The office is closed on the weekends but a polite and knowledgeable guard was on site to help everyone with questions. We stay in Bldg 1 of three buildings. We were on the ground floor, a short walking distance to the pool. The pool is kept clean but it is very small. It is oval shaped and for my wife, who likes to swim laps, was not acceptable. There is no ocean view from the property, but by walking a short distance to the sidewalk, there is a crosswalk, which takes you down a block. You are higher than the ocean at this point and then must walk down stairs and out on the sand until you get to the water. It is nice long, clean beach. The property has a number of pieces of equipment supplied by the owner. These range from sports equipment to beach towels, to many other accessories which made our visit more enjoyable. The property is close to shopping, food stores and quite a number of restaurants. The property is a relative short drive from the airport. Kehie is about a 15 minute drive down to the Wailea hotels, golf courses and snorkeling beaches. There is a good selection of TV channels and CD player. We brought a number of DVDs but the unit did not have a DVD player. It is a very functional unit and my wife and I enjoyed our stay. We would definitely consider staying at this property again. The owner was very accessible and responsive to the few issues we encountered.

The best I've experienced

  • 5 of 5

Greg, what a wonderful stay we had at your unit at Maui Vista. We have stayed there 5 times now and yours was the nicest unit we have stayed in. The uniqueness of the finishes from the curved walls and openings to the awesome shower and the comfortable bed made this a most pleasant stay. The in house washer/ dryer are most convenient. Greg even has a coffee grinder so can enjoy Hawaii's fine coffees from whole beans. Greg was most accessible and able to answer any questions we had.

Outside the lanai it was 30 feet to the swimming pool and just a few more steps to exit the property to walk the short distance to Charley Young Beach. The water was clear and the waves great to play in. We saw 8 turtles over 2 days not 150 feet along the shore in the rocks and reef while snorkeling right there at the beach. Now that is an experience!

We also got to watch a world class sculptor while he continued his work on a mermaid 6 feet tall with fish and turtles and coral and crabs all carved out of wood right there at the north end of the beach. And any day you happen to be there at sunset you get to watch the sun sink into the sea. It draws a crowd!

You can try surfing just 2 blocks north at The Cove and dine and shop at the Kalama Beach shopping area a block further up. Maui Vista is just in the right place. There is so much to do around here.

Needless to say we highly recommend this unit and Maui Vista and will try to stay at Greg's unit the next time we visit Maui. Mahalo!

Quaint condo across from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time in Maui, and our condo gave us everything that we needed and then some. We had plenty of clean towels, beach gear, and a great location in the heart of South Kihei. The only issue we faced was the A/C was a window unit, and it struggled a bit to cool the bedroom down (opposite end of the condo). This wasn't a big deal for us, and otherwise the unit was great. One thing to be ready for is that the unit is on the first floor, which we loved. However, that does mean we kept the curtain pulled across the living room most of the time so we didn't have people peering in at us. Again, not an issue for us, but just something to be aware of. The owner was great to work with, and they gave us a great deal of flexibility with check-in and check-out. He was also very prompt with responses to questions we had about the unit. We highly recommend this unit, and will definitely look to Greg again for our next trip to Maui.
