About the property

Beautiful remodel, 1bdrm/1bath. Swimming pool, tennis courts steps to the beach.

It's all about your vacation! Our condo is strategically located on the Southwest coast of Maui. This area has statistically less rainfall, and more sunny days than anywhere else on the island. The location is optimum for all of your vacation activities. We are a two minute walk from beautiful Charley Young Beach, and within quick walking distance to restaurants, shops, and a great place to learn paddle boarding or surfing at Cove Park. We've designed and furnished this condo for comfort, relaxation, and entertaining in mind. All tile floors to keep you cool, leading to the lanai, which has great seating, views of the pool, tennis courts, and the grounds to the ocean, excellent for pupus and drinks. The Kitchen has a large granite peninsula for conversations while cooking and entertaining. The kitchen is well equipped for all of your cooking and entertaining needs, and is equipped with all new stainless steel appliances. It even has a separate butlers pantry for the microwave. The entire condo has great ventilation, and includes ceiling fans in the bedroom, and living room, plus A/C too. The bedroom is nicely arranged with a large dresser and mirror for all of your storage needs. The queen bed has an extremely comfortable memory foam mattress, and memory foam pillows too. There is plenty of closet space to hang up all of your clothes, including an iron, and ironing board for your convenience.

The bathroom is completely tiled with double towel bars, towel hangars for after the beach, and plenty of room in the shower/tub with a custom curtain rod. Dim the lights for some ambiance, or to set the mood. The living room and dining area are spacious and the round glass table provides seating for four, plus you have the extra added factor of the peninsula, and additional seating for two. Enjoy the comfort of the queen sofa sleeper which has a brand new memory foam mattress, very comfortable, and can't even feel the bars! Relax and put your feet up on the comfortable ottoman while you converse with your guests, or catch the latest sports on the 47' LCD tv. The entertainment center includes wireless internet, cable tv, a digital phone which includes free calling to the US and Canada, and more than 60 countries. Enjoy your music on the Sony stereo which is configured for iPod, android phones and contains a cd player too. Watch movies on the Sony DVD player also provided. Extra seating is provided in the living room with two super-comfortable IKEA Poang chairs.

Down the elevator to the grounds reveals a great swimming pool with tables, chairs and lounges. Multiple tennis courts are at your feet. The barbecue area is right around the corner, it includes gas barbecues, a seating area, and is always clean and maintained.

The grounds are well maintained, and have nice walking paths that lead through the beautiful gardens to the other two buildings, additional swimming pools, tennis courts, and barbecue areas. Beautiful birds abound. All in all, staying at our condo is a delightful experience. Our unit is located in the second building, so there is no road noise whatsoever, very relaxing. Enjoy!

About Stephen

My wife Kathy and I started coming to Kihei when our daughter was born in 1983, our son learned to walk on the sands of Maui in 1986. We lived in Alaska for around 30 years, and constantly vacationed in Kihei in order to have the other beautiful extreme. About two years ago we moved to Seattle to be closer to our daughter, her family, our new granddaughter and our family in the Pacific Northwest. Our son lives with his family on Maui, in Kahului, and we have two grandkids there. All the more reason to spend even more time on Maui. We chose Kihei for its beautiful weather, and the proximity to so many awesome beaches and things to do directly in the area. The location can't be beat!

Stephen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Stephen chose Maui

We chose Maui Vista because we have stayed there several times, and have completely enjoyed our experiences. Maui Vista is a great property, the buildings are small, not a huge complex, and each of the three buildings has its own pool, tennis courts, and barbeque areas. The grounds are well maintained, beautiful plants, flowers, and birds abound. The units are nice and quiet because they are located off the main road, and the parking is excellent. More importantly is the location. It's within walking distance to three major beaches, and an awesome park. It's a short walk either North or South to restaurants, shops, bars, and grocery stores. Within a short driving distance is the resort area of Wailea with world class shopping, resorts, beaches, and golf courses. Oh, and did I mention beaches? Snorkeling, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, surfing, wind-surfing, scuba diving, turtles, whale watching. This place is awesome!

What makes this condo unique

Kihei, and Maui Vista have unique characteristics, one of the most important is the weather, it rarely rains here. The condo and the complete renovation allowed us to start from scratch, and to make it the way we wanted, modern, and welcoming, with total comfort in mind. The views are awesome, and the location is one of the best on Maui. So many things to do in either a two, five, or ten minute walk. Two minutes away there is beautiful Charley Young beach. Bring the beach chairs, mats, towels, and cooler, everything is provided, and enjoy! Five and ten minutes away are more awesome beaches, surfing, paddle boarding, beautiful parks, shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores, and that's just if you are walking. A short drive either way brings you to golf, horseback riding, galleries, restaurants, resorts, walking and jogging trails, and any other beach and sea-type activity you desire.

Our time in Maui was wonderful! The condo was clean, comfortable, well maintained and in a great location in the heart of Kihei. Everything we needed inside the condo was provided and all of the beach towels, chairs and boogie boards were an added bonus. The owner, Steve was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was very timely in responding to our emails.

We would definitely recommend this unit and will look to book it for our future visits to Maui! Mahalo!

We had a great time! Convenient location and lots off extras

  • 5 of 5

This was our trip of a lifetime! We loved the condo and all the extras that were provided.... beach chairs, boards, beach coolers, towels etc. These were all mentioned in the reviews and the description but once we got there we're realize how important they were to the trip. Each day we'd pack a lunch and it was just so convenient to have these things provided for us. There were extra towels, linen!!! it was just like being at home where we could cook a meal, put the dishes in the dish washer and do laundry when we wanted. It was just an awesome experience and I'd recommend this as a place to stay for sure. Close to the beach by foot or by car. Close to shops for groceries and souvenirs.

Wonderful accommodation, amenities, and location

  • 5 of 5

First off the owner was incredibly outgoing and approachable! The unit was very clean and had all kitchen items needed to cook meals and bedding to sleep four perfectly. The condo grounds were very well maintained, great bbq's, lovely pools, tennis courts, and plenty of parking. The beach is literally across the street and the unit has four boogie boards! The snorkel items were limited but we rented several pieces from Bob's Snorkle down the road. Loved that business too! We cooked most of our meals (Costco in the town you land in) but there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Hands down the best beaches are in Kihei and you truly don't have to leave the town but we explored the whole island and can't wait to return! My only gripe is the Maui Vista office employee, Tish, was very unfriendly and not inviting whatsoever but lucky you don't need much contact with the office staff. Thank you for the wonderful family vacation! Mahalo

Owner's Response: Thank you for your awesome review! So sorry to hear about the front office staff, I will have a bit of a chat with her because I want everyone to have an enjoyable experience. You are correct about the limited bead to interact with this office, just for your parking permit, and if you would like to access the tennis courts. All else is through me and my on island property management team. Happy New Year! Steve

Clean, quiet, expertly maintained.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was out of this world amazing. It is nicely updated so it always felt cozy. I would definitely come back here again without hesitation. "Partial ocean view" is honestly a bit of a stretch. You can partially see the ocean through the trees, however it doesn't take anything away from the visit. The beach is seriously a 5 minute stroll across the street from the condo. We had 2 MASSIVE turtles swim up right next to us in waist deep water. Definitely an amazing place. Plus, Steve was amazing to us. He always responded fairly quickly and we felt as though he was incredibly accommodating. He really takes customer service to the next level. Do yourself a favor and book this place asap!

Our Condo is centrally located for everything that makes Maui such an exciting destination. World-class beaches within minutes. Opportunities for surfing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, snorkeling and diving just minutes away. Short drives bring you to the Maalea Harbor for whale watching, snorkeling and scuba tours, plus a fantastic Ocean Center/Aquarium. Further North is the whaling village of Lahaina for shops, restaurants, galleries, and more, continuing North are the beautiful resort and golf areas of Kaanapali and Kapalua. There are awesome beaches in this area for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding,and turtle viewing.

To the South within a 5 minute drive is the resort area of Wailea, which has world-class golf, shops, restaurants, galleries, resorts, beaches, and a beautiful walking, jogging path that hugs the coastline. Further South is Makena beach, one of our favorites, Makena is just beautiful with pristine sands, and beautiful, tourqoise water. Great coves and bays for snorkeling, diving, turtling, and surfing are abundant if you continue on. For the adventurous this road winds all the way around the island to Hana.

Up Country on Haleakala is the quaint/cowboy town of Makawao, which has all kinds of great shops, galleries restaurants, and hosts its own July 4th rodeo. Pukalani, and Kula, where much of the islands fresh produce is grown, are equally fun to explore.

On the North side of the Island is the hip community of Paia, which has fantastic shops, excellent restaurants, and a great artist community. Lots of fun things to do and experience here. Further East is the world-class windsurfing of Hookipa, a must see, and experience. Continuing on the winding road leads to waterfalls, botanical parks, hiking, state parks, and the community of Hana, all in all, a wonderful experience.
