This is a beautiful condo decorated with a tropical theme. Sleeps 2-4. It has a new A/C unit in the living room, quiet ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom, and drapes to prevent overheating in the afternoon.

It is equipped with a comfortable queen size bed in the bedroom and convertible sofa-double bed in the living room. It has a built in washer and drier so you can pack lightly for your vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and baking needs. Bathroom and bedroom linens are provided. The bathroom was fully remodeled in June 2014.

About Linda

Linda and Larry live in the college town of Davis, California. Linda is Associate Director of the newly formed Feminist Research Institute at the University of California at Davis.. Larry is retired and takes care of our Davis garden and pool. (Larry loves Maui Vista because he can enjoy the tropical gardens and pool without taking care of them!) We love the beach and we enjoy running in the Maui Oceanfront 15k race in January. After renting other condos at Maui Vista for 4 years, we decided to purchase this beautiful condo in 2013. We love to travel and we found this condo to be one of the most comfortable, relaxing places we have stayed. We will do our best to make certain you enjoy your stay here.

Linda purchased this condo in 2013

Why Linda chose Maui

Location! Tropical Comfort! Amenities!

This is a beautiful condo, freshly repainted throughout, fully equipped, with updated tropical decor, and new to the rental market. There are many reasons why you should seriously consider booking this unit.

1. It is located on the second floor in the highly desirable Building 3. This building is the quietest in the complex since it farthest from the traffic noise on South Kihei Road, yet is close enough to the ocean to enjoy cooling ocean breezes.

2. One of Maui's best beaches (Charley Young/Kamaole 1 beach) is just across the street within easy walking distance. (Google the live web cam for Charley Young Beach and make your friends envious when they see you enjoying the beach!)

3. This unit has a peaceful view of the beautifully landscaped tropical gardens of Maui Vista from the lanai and the living room/kitchen. New lanai furniture so you can Enjoy morning coffee on the lanai & listen to the birds.

4. Our photos are always updated. Last update was 8/24/2014

5. The unit is professionally cleaned and well-maintained by a local management company (Maui Condo and Home) who are always available to take care of our guest needs or emergencies.

6.We provide beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, body boards, and a cooler for your days on the beach. We also provide tools to use with the convenient outdoor gas grills on the property.

7. We respond quickly to inquiries and are very easy to work with.

8. The bedroom has a new bedroom set, a very comfortable bed and a ceiling fan.

9. The living room has a 40 inch LCD TV with cable, a cd player, I-touch dock, and DVD player.

10. Free, unlimited wireless internet and free long distance calling to anywhere in the US and Canada.

11. Overall, this is a GREAT value for the quiet tropical comfort and amenities we offer!

12. We have recently added a small printer for printing out your boarding passes and a wonderful leather recliner.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoying ocean breezes and the tropical garden view from the Lanai of this condo is very relaxing. Linda especially loves early morning barefoot running on the beach across the street and we both love running uphill from the condo and/or along the oceanfront path in Wailea which give us running routes of 6 to 10 miles of tropical beauty! The condo is an easy walk or short drive to some great restaurants, shopping, and places along the ocean to enjoy Mai Tais and tapas at sunset!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at your place was great! Very comfortable and clean. The only thing I would suggest is getting some board games or cards and movies to have for renters to use while there. That was the only thing we thought that was missing- otherwise the kitchen was well stocked! I can also say that it was great having beach chairs, towels and a cooler bag available to use. The location was excellent and we were able to walk get a latte, some breakfast and groceries. Whatever we needed was just a short walk away. The beach across the street was great to spend a day at or watch the sunset. Your kitchen had everything we needed to cook and the lanai was great to sit out on and eat and listen to the birds in the trees. Thank you.

A wonderful stay for our first visit.

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful location is a true gem. Usually when I travel, I try not to expect much as I personally think anything bad can happen. Upon entry, I was immediately impressed. The unit was clean, extremely neat and looked comfortable. Funny moment, it was so warm during our visit - I walked into the unit and the first thing I seen was the pleasant view beyond the balcony; so I walked eagerly towards the balcony - just knowing that the glass door was open -- NOPE! It was closed, and my forehead, nose and chin helped me learn bout it. I walked into the super clean class door and smashed my face flush into it. Props to the cleaning crew for embarrassing me. At that point and time, I was the only one in the unit so I didnt have to mention it to my wife LOL. With that in mind, the entire unit was clean. The kitchen was fully supplied with items that would enable me to cook anything. Both beds (bedroom and pullout couch) were comfortable. The bathroom was nice with a good shower (no bath). Linda did well to have some other fine details taken care of like directions on how to use the TV to the dishwasher and laundry. She left a well stocked closet full of items for the beach (towels, boogieboards and scuba gear). She answered any and every question that I had, promptly. I fully suggest this place to anyone. I fully plan to stay here again during my next visit (so much so that ill book this stay before my flight).

Thanks Linda...for everything.

The owners have really thought of everything from a fully stocked kitchen , to awesome beach equipment, and everything in between. The condo itself is extremely lovely. They put some thought into the new renovations. Both beds ( bedroom and pullout) were very comfortable.

Overall this was an awesome condo and everything went very smoothly.

Linda is very detailed , leaving no questions unanswered. She was truly lovely through out the the whole expierence.

I would recommend this condo again and again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your response. As Larry and this reviewer note, Linda is a very detail oriented scientist...like Sheldon on Big Bang, but with a much better sense of humor:-) We have remodeled the bath room and the kitchen and are very happy our guests enjoyed this remodeling. We also just purchased a new mattress for the pull out bed in the living room and are very happy to hear that it is comfortable since we have not used that. We hope these guests will return again soon. It is always fun to welcome back returning guests.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. These French Canadians really enjoyed their Maui experience and I look forward to welcoming them back in the future. Their trip included a "birthday present" of swimming with the Maui turtles. This is really fun. Occasionally you will also see a turtle on the beach closest to our condo. Our guests enjoy the close access to great beaches.

Great place in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy with the place. Linda went out of her way to accommodate me when my travel plans changed a bit. Location is good - 2nf floor, about 5 minute walk to beach and 15-20 minute walk to the main nightlife. Condo included lots of extras like snorkel gear, cooler, bottled water m, keyless entry (combo) that made things more convenient. Would stay here again.

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying in Linda & Larry's condo. The condo is beautiful, clean and convenient. We spent ten days there and the condo is quiet, modern, and has all the things you need to make your stay comfortable. It is located in a great part of S Kehei with plenty of beaches and activities close by. I only hope it is available the next time we go. This is by far our preferred place to stay.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The location is excellent. Quiet with a great garden and sunset view. Shopping and food outlets nearby and the beach across the street. The condo was well stocked, well ventilated, we never used AC, and had a friendly user atmosphere with minimum rules. Lots of closet space! Booking outings was easy with a very friendly concierge who promoted local business which we appreciated. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear your enjoyed your visit. We love to sit on the lanai in the morning to enjoy the tropical bird songs. We often eat dinner on the lanai after using the outdoor grill just steps from the condo to cook mahi mahi from Foodland or steaks from Costco. It is very relaxing and peaceful. We hope you will return soon.
