Maui Vista Condos are among the most beautiful on the island and this one surpasses them all. Newly refurbished, the décor is modern, comfortable and friendly. A ground floor condo it would be suitable for four adults or two adults and two school aged children. You are only steps way from the famous pristine white sands of Kamaole I and Charley Young beaches. You are mere feet away from a barbecue, as well as several swimming pools. The condo is modern, beautifully furnished and will very comfortably sleep four people. The bedroom includes a spacious king sized bed featuring a Dormia Memory-Foam mattress, a 37' flat panel LCD television, a dock for your iPod, and ceiling fans to supplement the air conditioning when the nights are warm. In the living room you will also find a 47 inch LCD television to entertain you. The full kitchen features all the small appliances you could wish for. Make a Mai Tai using the blender, or pop some finger food into the microwave.
The lounges and chairs on the private lanai will give you plenty of seating if you choose to simply enjoy the sunshine and sip a drink, or a quiet place to relax after a day spent sightseeing or shopping in some of the many fabulous stores and shops. Plus, the many amenities you're going to enjoy will have you returning year after year to this perfect island retreat. You're never far from an amazing view, a beautiful sunset, a fabulous golf course or a wonderful restaurant. Why spend your time in a costly hotel when you could enjoy your vacation your way, with all the comfort and the convenience of home. Your kitchen is modern and convenient, and holds all that you need to whip up your own masterpieces of culinary delight, while the dining room features seating for four, or you may choose to eat al fresco, using the table for four on the lanai. Complete with a Bosch washer and dryer, a hair dryer as well as lounge chairs for the beach, all you really need to bring to Maui when you rent this little gem, is your bathing suit, your suntan lotion and you.
No vacation could be more perfect than a vacation on Maui, with the wonderful activities such as para-sailing, snorkeling, diving, Zipline, sailing, watching the whales, hiking or riding the volcano or the marine preserve.

Second time to stay at this comfortable condo and will be staying again in a couple of months for a longer time. The condo is well equipped with an amazing kitchen, not the normal Walmart items.
The only issue I thought I had was with the Dryer. It looked like it did not work. When I brought it up to the owner, he assured me that it was just cosmetic and the dryer did work. He was replacing it and the washer before my next trip.
The main reasons I stay at this unit is the Memory Foam bed (I wake up totally rested), the modern Air Conditioner (not window units) and the location a short walk to my favorite beach, Charley Young Beach.
the apartment has everything we needed to enjoy the beach, chairs, boogie boards, towels, snorkel, frisbee. the kitchen had all the things we needed too. huge fridge, ice packs and a cold bag.
nice big King bed. was an easy 5 min walk to the beach and food town was only a 10 min walk.
We stayed at the Maui Vista on reccommendation from other family members also staying there for a small family reunion. We loved the ground floor location of the unit and the owners were very generous in outftting the unit with nice quality beach chairs, umbrellas, tennis rackets etc. - which was very much appreciated. However, we had a few issues in the unit itself:
1. Cleanliness was lacking. Not sure what the routine is with the housekeeping team that cleans after every stay, but the floors in the unit were swept but not clean. Wiping up water off the floors in the bathroom left the towel very black /dirty unfortunately. We had to wash the glassware and plates / bowls before using as the wine glasses had lipstick marks and there was old food particles on plates and bowls. The fry pans also had old grease on them as well - All of this was very disappointing.
2. There is an issue with the Dishwasher - after a few plates of soapy tasting food and wine / water glasses of soapy tasting drinks, we had to rinse all the plates and glasses / cookware before using. The rinse cycle may not be working properly and there is a very strong soapy smell from the dishwasher after it supposedly finishes its cycle. You could smell strong soap odor on the dishes/ cutlery etc.
3. Air Conditioning was not working. There was a handyman in the unit after we arrived to repair a broken shower head and we mentioned the air conditioning was not blowing very strong or very cold air. He looked at the unit and said it appeared there was definitley a problem(not something he could fix) and would let the owner know. He returned the next day to finish his bathroom repair and said he let the owner know but we never had anyone out to deal with the air conditioning. This was the most serious issue as late afternoons in the unit and overnight were not very comfortable. It was difficult to use the stove top to cook as the living room become very hot. Also, there is no vent fan for the stove top which was unusual.
As owners of rental properties ourselves, its very important to ensure your guests are comfortable and the amenities that are promised in the unit are working. We paid for a unit with air conditioning and a working dishwasher. We do not feel that we received what was advertised/offered and we are asking for a partial reimbursement of our stay.
Poor communication with owner
Condo has everything for the beach including beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards. We would definitely stay here again.
Condo was great for the 2 of us, like the tile floors as they are always cleaner. Kitchen and cupboards well-stocked - made good use of the good quality beach chairs, umbrellas and cooler. Also nice to have an ice maker in the fridge.
The Maui Vista is easy walking distant the beach, although we mostly drove and explored the many beautiful beaches of Maui.
The owner was accommodating and easy to deal with.
The only thing I would suggest to improve is the Lanai furniture. Big heavy wrought iron chairs and table. The table was not in good shape, but there was a fresh new table cloth put on when we arrived. However, the birds quickly made a mess of it. A glass table could at least be cleaned. Consequently, we rarely sat or ate there - unfortunate as we do try to eat outdoors whenever we can.
We took a one month break from our snowy Canadian home and stayed at Maui Vista in Donald Frenchs great condo. There were many pluses in this condo. GreT top end appliances. The full size Bosch washer and dryer were a bonus. It was like doing laundry at home. We were able to cook our meals using an oven that didn't heat the entire condo up. The kitchen was very well equipped. We were even able to make some frosty tropical drinks with a supplied blender.
The air conditioning in the condo was far superior than other condos. It was not your run of the mill conditioner in the window. These were fitted on the ceiling in the bedroom and living area. Very quiet and efficient.
Being on the ground floor facing the parking lot (which you can't see because of the beautiful hibiscus shrubs bordering) was a bonus. We had a large grassy area to use for play when our little Grand daughter came over from their condo. It is also very quiet. Coffee on the Lanai became a morning ritual.
We had a couple of little hiccups which the owner promptly took care of. Donald was very easy to work with before our trip and during.
We will return to Kihei soon and would stay at this condo in a heartbeat.
