About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Closest of three buildings in Maui Vista to the beach. This larger top floor end unit means you'll only have a three minute walk to the beach. You'll never miss a sunset or have to carry beach gear farther than you have to. End units are also the most private with a neighboring unit only on one side and no one walks by your bedroom at night.

We provide Free internet, Free cable TV, Free local and long distance calling to Canada and the USA. All our recent upgrades are comfort oriented. Bamboo floor downstairs, New main bathroom , new kitchen cabinets, new washer and dryer etc. This is an updated condo that has retained it's cozy feel.

We think this location beats anywhere else on Maui for convenience. Maui vista is walking distance to stores, restaurants, local super markets and Maui's best beaches including The Cove south Maui's surf beach. It's also only a 25 min. drive to the airport. Unbeatable!

Awesome. Beautiful view of the ocean. Corner unit kept it cool with the Trade winds.

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth or fifth time staying in the unit. We love staying here - the ocean view, the short jaunt across the street to our fave beach (Charley Young), very clean, well equipped unit. Beach usually quite quiet (I understand it's a 'local's beach') - only day it was busy was our last Saturday there, but then again, the Trades had died down and it was 36 C with the humidex! Love that unit has everything you could want (except perhaps measuring spoons - hint, hint) 😊? and that it is very close to everything. We'll be back next year!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Quiet unit, good sunset watching from the Lanai. Spent lots of time at Charley Young beach just a short walk away. I would stay here again.

This condo was better then staying in the rental car, but not much better. From the pictures we could tell that it was old & dated and that was reflected in the price. We figured we were spending most of the time outside so it wouldn't matter. The condo was incredibly grubby. We doubt it has EVER had a thorough cleaning!! The lights switches & cupboard handles were sticky. Some of the plastic containers had been put away wet and had mould growing in them!!! The small appliances (coffee maker, toaster etc.) must be 30 years old and show every bit of being used. Most of the towels were threadbare & stained. In the loft, a phone charger fell between the bed & wall. The mattress slide off the box spring which was covered in sand!! Even the tools to clean (broom & dustpan) were filthy, covered in other people's hair & stained with who knows what.

The only thing that made it manageable was the weather was fantastic and we weren't in the unit very much. The condo complex is exactly opposite to the unit. The grounds are immaculate, the vegatation is garden-like and pools beautiful.

Totally gross!!!

Owner's Response: While I am always ready for constructive criticism this is a very unusual and exaggerated review. For example, the coffee machine and toaster are both less than two years old. The comment of " must be 30 years old" is way off base. Dated " as was reflected in the price " ? I lowered prices to help my Canadian customers with the dollar difference. The towels etc. are replaced regularly by my managers as needed. My wife and I personally cleaned the unit last December 13th. It was immaculate. Lastly this guest contacted me only after her stay!!!! As a result I had the unit inspected. As it was not fully up to the usual standards the cleaner was changed. She did receive an apology and thanked me for it. We followed up as best we could after the fact. As my other reviews reflect this is a very good unit. To any guest whom is dissatisfied with anything contact the managers immediately !!!!! Let us DO SOMETHING!! Calling me weeks later is simply unproductive. Yours Paul Mirko

Awesome Holiday As Always

  • 5 of 5

Another great holiday at Paul and Kayoko's Maui Vista condo.

Rightly situated on top floor and corner of building 1 facing the ocean, you can't get any better than that.

Not to mention all of the amenities, supplies and beach items in the condo, it's like a home away from home in the best location in Kihei as for as we are concerned.

I believed this past June was at or 6th time in this condo and we always love it.

Access to the best beach in Kihei, Charley Young Beach, is literally a 3 minute walk from the condo.

Best beach for snorkeling around and offers shaded area before joining Kam 1.

Close walk to shopping, groceries and restaurants and with a fully equipped kitchen in the condo, what else do you want for your holidays.

Always clean and tidy with ceiling fans in every room and 2 A/Cs, its always been a comfortable place that we call our home away from home most years in May or June.

Affordable, clean, quiet and definitely coming back again next year.

Nice place...

  • 4 of 5

It was our tenth year anniversary when I first heard of VRBO condos. The wife wanted to go to Maui and we found this gem of a condo built in the 1980's right accross the street from the beach. It was kind of big for just the two of us, and thought it perfect for a party of four - possibly more. It's located in the perfect spot in Kihei. It has its own swimming pools and tennis court, barbecue pit, and close to all amenities to gather your goods to stay put at the complex and beach. The unit is totally self contained on the top floor and is an end unit of the complex. we found the privacy as perfect as the view from the patio overlooks a pool, the street, and the beach - with well landscaped grounds. there are no nosy/noisy neighbors that can peer in as there are no units directly across from your view - perfect for our romantic getaway.

We found the washer and dryer exceptionally useful as we travel light and are able to avoid those costly laundry charges that you find at most resorts/hotels. I would recommend renting a car if you wanted to see all the sites of Maui, but if you and your family just wanted beach and complex activities there is no need for it.

My wife and I would surely look to book this VRBO again if we were to return to Maui.

A good to excellent stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks Steve I love the privacy too. I always thought that the corner unit positions are the best at Maui Vista for that. It took you to bring to my attention that people can't see in the front either!!!! Glad you had a great stay. Paul
