About Mark Emoto

Mark is from Hawaii, Cheryl from Michigan and we reside in southern California and we love Maui! We want to share our Little Piece of Paradise and warm Aloha with our guests!

Mark Emoto purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mark Emoto chose Maui

Hawaii is a magical place. We love the sun and the water but don’t want the crowds of Waikiki. Maui seems to be that perfect island with beaches, mountains, great weather, great golfing, a National Park, a lazy drive to Hana, shopping, dining…you will find all this and much more on Maui.

And why choose to stay in Kihei? Kihei is centrally located in Maui making it easier to get to wherever you want to go; it has great beaches, local charm, and is more affordable than some other Maui locations. Most importantly, the people here are full of aloha – friendly and caring.

Maui Vista Resort in Kihei is just that perfect spot to stay while vacationing on Maui. It is a well-maintained, clean and safe resort that makes for a relaxing vacation. This particular unit has been kept and maintained to the highest standards, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated and furnished. We fell in love with it at first sight; it is the perfect match for our tastes and lifestyle. As the owners of this Maui Vista condo, we are excited to make this lovely unit available to share with you, our guests. This is the place to come to RELAX and put aside the stresses of work (or school) and create lasting memories.

What makes this condo unique

Three minutes! That’s all it takes to walk to Charley Young beach. The condo is the perfect size for your vacation, with all the amenities you need including an in-unit washer/dryer, which means you can pack light and still have everything you need! Walk over to the beach in the morning; come back to the unit for lunch; then return for a beautiful sunset! Tennis courts, pools, and gas BBQ grills are available on the resort grounds! We are within walking distance to grocery stores, shops, open markets, and restaurants. It's the PERFECT vacation site!

Loved Maui! Wish we stayed longer. Mark was great to work with & very accommodating.

  • 4 of 5

This property was very clean & had everything you would find in your home. The kitchen is well stocked with everything, even spices, cooking oil, baggies, foil, etc... All we needed to get was our food. Mark also left us a gift basket with coffee, cookies, & a bottle of wine! Lots of beach gear. Cooler, umbrella, beach towels, chairs, but no boogie boards if that's something you'd want to use. The air conditioner cooled the property very quickly on those hot days. The lanai was great for relaxing. Even tho the unit is on the end where the cars drive by, it was pretty quiet. The king size bed was too firm so we opted to sleep on the sofa sleeper which was very comfortable. The location is great! Beautiful beaches are right across the street & restaurants & stores are within walking distance. Mark responded to any questions we had immediately & made sure to check in to see how things were going. He's a great host!

What a gem, in the perfect location in, fantastic condo with everything you need, and amazing owners

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Cheryl's place provided us more than we could have ever expected as our home away from home. We stayed from March 03 thru March 24 and every day we were so thankful we chose this condo over all others. From our first contact with the owners we felt that this was the place for us. We were not even in Maui yet and Mark was always available to answer any question and assist in any way he could. The bag tags Cheryl made us before departure were beautiful and such a kind gesture.

The arrival instructions came well in advance of our flights and were very clear and easy to follow. Upon arrival we were not only greeted by an amazing condo but a loaded gift basket, bottle of local wine, and then a phone call from Mark welcoming us and letting us know if we need assistance he is available 24 hours a day. WOW! That is the personal touch. The condo was perfect. My favorite place was the Lanai. Tiled and clean, nice furniture and picturesque grounds to enjoy. The unit is tastefully appointed with everything you need. A comfortable bed and pull out couch, linens, utensils, and the cookware was exceptional. There were enough spices and other needs that were could hold off on shopping for a few days, some items like laundry soap etc. lasted beyond our stay. Our son was so happy and made himself at home at the desk to keep up with his homework, and the WIFI, which was trouble free, was also high on his list.

The beach chairs, coolers, towels, and umbrella were much appreciated and used every day. The location of the unit is close enough to South Kihei road to make walking to the beach quick and easy, but set back enough that you don't hear traffic noise. The condo is decorated just right and there is a nice selection of books on local topics to enjoy. The one item that really came in handy was the safe. Thanks for that! The condo itself is steps away from the barbecues. The ability to call home unrestricted to Canada to keep in touch with our family was very important to us. Thanks Mark and Cheryl for thinking of that for your guests. It gave us much comfort talking with our parents while so far away.

The location is the best, right in the middle of everything. A short walk left or right gets you to where you need to go. We would come back and stay here in a heartbeat and hope to rebook in two years. Thanks Mark and Cheryl for providing us with the perfect family vacation. And thanks Mark for taking time to visit with us on our last night. Mahalo!

BEST 50th birthday present ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks at Mark and Cheryl's condo and loved the accessability. We played tennis every morning, and then we would go for a dip at Charlie young beach to cool off. The beach was literally across the street and we loved watching the sunset each evening. Everything you need is close by and in walking distance. Mark And Cheryl don't miss a thing. Everything you would want is available in the unit, beach umbrella and chairs, towels are plentiful and the little things you might think you need in the actual condo are a huge bonus. They got it covered. The king size bed in the master bed room is very comfortable, and the unit is an end unit, so its very quiet and private. We felt very taken care of and would definitely return to this rental in the future and we continue to tell our friends too! Thanks Mark and Cheryl.

Another great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February as guests of Mark and Cheryl in their lovely condo. It was the second time we stayed with them and we had a wonderful stay. The new tiled floors and remodeled kitchen were really impressive! Lots of new cabinet space and counter top work space! We liked how the microwave oven was in a wall rack and not taking up counter space, like before. It was a pleasure preparing meals in such a well designed and well equipped kitchen! It was nice to have breakfast on the lanai and be surrounded by the beautiful and well maintained landscaping on the grounds. The landscaping crews spend a lot of time making the area look nice for guests. The home was well equipped and very clean. We would certainly stay here again, and we always recommend it to any friends planning a Maui vacation. As past owners, we are pleased to return and see how our former condo has been enhanced. We are also pleased to know that many of our former guests have continued to vacation here as guests of Mark and Cheryl. They are excellent hosts with a fine condo!
