About Scott Humanek

Welcome to our home away from home on the beautiful island of Maui. As residents of Seattle, we are a short six hours away and come to Maui as often as we can. We take pride in keeping our home clean and welcoming and hope that you find it inviting.

Scott Humanek purchased this condo in 2012

Why Scott Humanek chose Maui

Having traveled to over 100 countries, we have had a chance to see the world and experience a lot that it has to offer. But something about Maui is special and always beckons you back. South Kihei is a laid back community enjoyed by all and the Maui Vista is in the heart of it - close to shops, restaurants, bars and beaches and a great 'home base' for all that Maui and the surrounding islands have to offer.

What makes this condo unique

The views, location and the architectural 'bones' sold us on the home and we have invested significantly to upgrade every aspect to have an updated luxury beach feel. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. We have also added a number of touches including some of our own photos from around Maui and other art from local artists.

We completed substantial renovations in late 2014 taking it to the bare studs and concrete walls to make it new and fresh. We've refreshed nearly everything in the condo including the furniture including a queen-sized sofa sleeper to make it more comfortable for parties of 6, towels, linens, kitchen gadgets and more. We have replaced the flooring throughout, added a ceiling fan in the living room, a new master closet, complete redesign of BOTH bathrooms and a completely redesigned kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and bamboo cabinets. The kitchen was more than just a refresh, it is a whole new design - including an island - very open and unique for Maui Vista! The floor plan photo reflects this redesign.

Amazing Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for constructive feedback about how we feel you can improve the service and accommodation on offer, I’m afraid you’re out of luck. Our experience from start to finish has been perfect.

The booking process was straight forward, swift and reassuring. The mobile application was clear, easy to use and meant we had the check in procedure, codes and instructions on arrival at Maui Vista. There were no delays and we went straight into the condo.

The information supplied in the condo for services and appliances was extensive and very useful, the island guide books and the DVD are a great touch.

The location in Kihei was spot on, we loved the beach and snorkelling directly opposite the complex, both Kelly and I were lucky enough to snorkel with turtles on more than one occasion at this beach. The Condo itself was packed with everything we needed during the trip. We used the beach chairs and the snorkel gear regularly and everything was good quality and clean.

This is a trend that extended to much more than just the beach accessories, ‘clean and good quality’ applied to everything in the condo. Without exaggeration I can say the mattress was the best we’ve ever slept on – I still miss it now, our own is a poor replacement. The condo was our home for two weeks and it was extremely comfortable.

The staff at Maui Vista were informative, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. The concierge, RW, helped us decide which activities to try and where the key places to visit were on the island. He’d add hints and tips that really paid off and everything he recommended turned out to be as good as described.

I’m pretty sure we covered every accessible inch of the island and it was worth it! The activities, locations and views on offer catered to all of our moods. When we wanted to be adrenaline junkies, nature lovers, historians or shopaholics we were kept busy and entertained. When we wanted a relaxing and quite day, there were plenty of secluded beaches to choose from.

It was a honeymoon to remember and we couldn’t have been happier with it. We hope to return in the future and we’ll be sure to contact you.

Beautiful condo in the heart of Kihei

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing spring break in Maui, and this condo was the perfect home base. The unit is beautifully decorated, and it is stocked with all of the beach toys you could possibly need. We loved getting up in the morning to drink coffee on the lanai and listen to the birds. Charley Young beach was just a short walk away where we could enjoy the waves, watch the whales playing off shore and even see a couple of turtles. The grounds of this complex are well kept, and everyone we met was incredibly friendly. We had zero complaints. All in all, a great place to spend your vacation!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great first vacation to Maui. We travelled with three children (9,7,4) and found this condo to be a perfect fit. The condo is well stocked- kitchen has everything to cook comfortably. The washer and dryer was a great convenience for a longer stay and with kids. The condo also had well stocked beach gear in terms of chairs, mat, towels etc. Charlie Young beach is an easy walk across the street and we found it to be the best beach for our crew ( had an other family with smaller children), the waves were manageable for the younger kids. The location is easy acess to shopping, grocery stores and restaurants. The condo air conditioner isn't super powerfully but once the evenings cooled off and with the screen door and fans it was comfortable for sleeping. Highly recommend this unit and look forward to returning!!

Highlights: whale watching with Boss Frogs, Paia- Flatbread Co., Paia Fish Market, Charlie Young Beach, Pizza Madness Maui, Aquarium

Had a wonderful time at the Maui vista, this unit was the best location and setup we have had ever at the vista. Very relaxing. Maui is our favorite travel spot and we will be back. Thank you for such a great home for our family to enjoy. We really had a special trip.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had to book a somewhat last minute trip to Kihei for my daughter's swim meet. Having stayed only in Kaanapali previously, didn't know much about Kihei. We found this condo and the pictures looked great so we booked through the website. The owner was incredibly responsive and answered all of my questions right away--so nice and easy to work with. We had to make a last minute request for late checkout and he got in touch with the property managers right away and had us set up without a hitch. In short, the owner was very accommodating and made the whole process so easy and enjoyable.

The condo was as depicted in the pictures. Newly remodeled and clean. We had a family of 5 and it fit us just fine. The new washer and dryers were a great bonus. Location is close to local beaches and restaurants. Close to Wailea as well. It could get a little warm but the owner has installed ceiling fans and provided portable fans throughout which helped beat the heat. There is also a standalone AC unit in the family room area so really wasn't bad. Finally, the owner also provided beach towels, sand toys, boogie boards and beach chairs, which was awesome for our trips to the beach. Parking was plentiful as well. Though we didn't use it, there is also a unity BBQ area open to the residents of the Maui Vista. It looked clean and we saw several families using the area throughout our stay.

Overall, we had a wonderful trip, made that much better by the owner. Looking forward to our next trip to Kihei!

Very Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

Very nice stay at the condo. A/C was limited to family room, but it worked very well. Bedroom got a bit hot and everyone slept in the living room.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. We're glad that you had a nice stay in our condo. We realize that this summer has been particularly warm and the trade winds not as strong as normal. We have some limitations on air conditioning placement but are exploring options that will allow more thorough coverage on those rare hot days when the fans and breeze aren't enough. We hope to welcome you back again on your next trip to Maui!

Charley Young Beach
Car: recommended

Maui Vista is a few short steps away (across the street) from the popular Charley Young Beach in sunny South Kihei. A short drive or 15 minute walk gets you to the best of Kihei shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment. The complex has an activity desk/concierge, but there are a variety of other activity desks along South Kihei Road to schedule popular excursions (snorkeling, paddle boarding, whale watching, etc.) The unit is in the highly desirable building 3 facing West/Northwest - views without the noise of South Kihei Road.

If you get a car (highly recommended) you can also access all the rest that the island has to offer - the road to Hana, the Bamboo forest, Old Town Lahaina, many world-class beaches and golfing and the crater at Haleakala just to name a few!
