About Rachel Christopher

Our family has lived on Maui for over 30 years, and we love it!!! We own & manage our condo & live just 5 minutes from Maui Vista, and are happy to help our guests in anyway we can!

Rachel Christopher purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rachel Christopher chose Maui

We love the location of our condo! It's located in the quiet 2nd building, and the view is not of the parking lot, but of the pool & tennis courts. It's very comfortable and clean! We are renovating our unit in July/August of 2016 and will be adding an AC in the bedroom (AC already in the living room).

What makes this condo unique

The Maui Vista complex is located just across the street from one of my favorite beaches: Charlie Young Beach. And, it is within walking distance of restaurants & shops!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for your help with our trip! We had a lovely stay on Maui! Your place is so organized and well equipped, and we truly appreciated it!

I'd love to come back and stay again! There is a lot we didn't get to see on our short stay. Maybe I'll even invite my hubby next time!

Walk to the beach

  • 4 of 5

This Kihei condo is within walking distance to the beach! We had a wonderful stay here for five days in June of 2016. There are many restaurants and shopping close as well. The condo has most anything you would need for beach fun, including boogie boards and chairs, plenty of towels, etc. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking. The only reason I gave it a 4 and not a 5 is due to the high temps and no air in the bedroom, however the owner is renovating and adding air conditioning. Rachel is a wonderful hostess and even called to see if we were settled in or needed anything. We will definitely stay here on our next stay to Maui-- the only thing I would do differently next time is extend our stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review Kelley! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo! You were the last guest to stay in our unit before we started our full renovation, so I apologize for the lack of AC in the bedroom. I am happy to announce that along with a new kitchen & bathroom, we now have AC in the bedroom as well as the living room. I'll be posting photos when it is fully completed. We hope to see you again soon! Aloha, Rachel :)

A very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a 2 week holiday in April 2016. The condo is lovely and well equipt for a comfortable stay. We particularly liked the front door locking system and and the safe is modern and easy to use. Charley Young's Beach is just a 2 minute walk across the road, it's a gorgeous beach, we enjoyed to walk along early in the morning. There are so many great beaches in the area you can't go wrong. We watched many a sunset from picturesk, deserted beaches. We think you really need a car to discover the area, and around this wonderful island. The road to Hana is something else with fantastic waterfalls, idillic beaches and stop off points, give yourself plenty of time it takes a few hours to take it all in. Half an hours drive takes you to Lahina a lovely little town with it's famous Baninon tree and harbour. I had to call Rachel a couple of times due to loosing my bank card, otherwise I may not have spoken to her, but she was very pleasant and helpful and offered lots of information whilst we chatted. Overall a great holiday which we hope to repeat next year. We found the local people very friendly there are plenty of bars and places to eat, (although vegetarian choice for us was limited) We liked the Irish bar 'The Dog & Duck' which does food too, and liked The Hawiian Moon for take away wholefoods. the nearby Foodland will give you discount if you let them know you're staying at the Maui Vista.

Nice week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Maui. Rachel was great to work with and left us a surprise welcome/anniversary basket filled with goodies. The place is conveniently located across from the beach and near many strip malls and eateries. The condo had everything needed for the beach, plenty of towels, sand chairs, boogie boards, snorkels, mats, umbrella, ice chest, etc. The condo overlooks the swimming pool and tennis courts. The sunset from the balcony was fantastic in the evening.

Birds chirped early in the morning, so if you want to sleep in it may be a little challenging but we got use to it during the week. The grounds were well manicured. The condo has easy access to the elevator. Thee was plenty of parking spaces.

We will definitely recommend this condo and will book this place in the future.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The condo is clean and in a great location near the beach. The unit was well equipped with everything you can think of, for sitting around inside or playing at the beach. The orientation was helpful to prepare for the cold weather for the sunrise experience. Rachel was very sweet, helpful and left a package of goodies for our arrival. She called to check if everything was OK. The washer and dryer in unit was very convenient. Would come back again in future.

Perfectly Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at this property. Everything was clean and comfortable. Lots of supplies in the kitchen and handy items for the beach. The property is nice with 3 small pools, so it was easy to find a free lounge chair. The location was very convenient to Charlie Young beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants to the north or south on Kihei Rd. Thanks Rachel!

Convenient, well stocked and good location

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a great location located near the beach, and a public park/beach a block down with running water bathrooms. Under normal weather conditions I am sure this place is a gem, however we came at the end of a hot spell, which from the looks of it most of the units in this complex were not prepared for. Several people reassured us the weather was extremely warm for this time of year. The unit was well equipped with everything you can think of, for sitting around inside or playing at the beach. Rachel was very sweet, helpful and left a package of goodies for our arrival.

Owner's Response: Aloha Lucy! Thanks for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! And, yes, it was a scorching summer this year! (In the 30+ years I've lived here it has never been so hot!) We did purchase a standing AC in the living room, and bought a a standing fan so that the cold air could flow into the bedroom. Hopefully that helped a bit.
