Description of the Kihei vacation condo rental

Penthouse living - great ocean view, sunset side. Maui Vista complex, first building, top floor (elevator). Complex has three pools, six tennis courts and a hospitality desk for tours and trips. The unit is two bedroom, 1.75 bath. Downstairs bedroom is a king (pillow top Sealy), room has its own air conditioner (and ceiling fan. Upstairs loft bedroom has a Sealy Posturpedic queen bed (ceiling fan) and portable air conditioner - as well as the main air conditioner downstairs. Travertine flooring on the main floor, laminate flooring on stairs and upstairs area (cleaner and cooler). There is a couch downstairs in the front room with 6" bottom cushion, only sleeps one, and a single roll-a-way for a 6th. We changed out the futon for a more comfortable couch and added a couple of chairs to the living area...as well as a 37" flat screen to replace the older television. Maytag washer 8-cycle,and a separate dryer. Now a brand new kitchen, Dec 15, 2013!! New stove, dishwasher, light, cupboards, and a few additional cupboards -- solid granite countertops, extended for additional eating area. All the amenities: beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, mats, even beach toys. We do not keep boogie boards or snorkel gear for quests because of the insurance laws. There are a couple of bikes in storage, but waivers need to be signed and prearrangement for storage key. There are plenty of dishes (not just four plates, etc.) blender for your tropical drinks, coffee maker, toaster, microwave. There are outside gas bar-b-ques on the main floor. We have hair dryer(s), ironing board, iron -- even a first aid kit. There are two televisions, DVD/VCR combo and a small collection of DVDs and videos, and books people leave. There is high-speed internet, and a computer and access for MagicJack (computer phoning). I have a lot of nice art work on the walls and, of course, the brass mermaid who resides in the front room. You can make a wish and kiss the wooden mermaid on the wall where she holds the pearl - I am told it brings good luck!

Area Information

We are directly up from Charley Young Beach. There are steps to walk down to the beach (and a shower at the top). Very light surf and a more secluded beach since you can't see it from the street. It becomes Kamaole Beach 1 (and the other side of the rock outcropping would be Kamaole 2 and 3). There is some great snorkeling at our local beach - around the Kamaole 1 where three turtles seem to reside, but my favorite is Ulua Beach, which is 10 minutes by car by the Grand Wailea. There is a little sign on the road that says Ulua Beach (just past the Rennaisance) and has two parking lots. Go early. Wind will pick up around 1:00 p.m. everyday and your snorkeling will be churned up. The Kihei Canoe Club is very close to Maui Vista - across from the grocery store and shopping center (6 blocks) as well as places to learn to surf (I took lessons there). Kihei is known as the "desert" side of Maui - although it looks green because of the watering. The good news if you want sun, this is the best place. Average rainfall is 5 inches. Southern California is 11 inches (I live in Hermosa Beach) - so even though there is occasional rain in Kihei, you have the highest likelihood of no rain!

Your front yard is the ocean, but you also have the pool on the ground floor if you don't like the sand. Great food places to go all up and down the beach and lots of activities to do either for free or low cost.

Great Location

Had a great time. Owner is in the process of redoing everything, even though it is very comfortable now. Ocean view, across the street from beach. Owner is very nice and her Agent is close by if you have any problems. Has internet, refer, microwave, coffee maker, lots of towels and kitchen stuff. Would definitely recommend.

Great condo in a great location

We stayed in Unit 1402 at the Maui Vista for 2 weeks and had a great experience there. The complex is clean, well managed and quiet and the unit is in a great spot near the end of the building where you aren't woken up by people walking past for their early morning tours and late night arrivals. Janice provided us with lots of great information and assistance both before and during our visit and was there to greet us when we arrived. The condo was clean and well stocked with beachy items and food stuffs and the ocean view was great! The king size bed was so comfortable - we slept like babies. Amenities are close by and within walking distance and the beach across the road is wonderful and uncrowded. The pool was nice too if you wanted a little change. All in all - a great experience! Thanks, Ellen & Marcus!

Wonderful stay in Kihei

Comfortable, well appointed condo, across the street from beautiful Charley Young beach. Convenient location to all Kihei has to offer. Includes (at no charge) activities desk coordinator with information about anything you need on the island of Maui. We enjoyed our visit and would rent again.

Great vacation!

Nice place to stay, good location, clean!!!!

Neat and homy...

It was very clean and neat. The arrangement made the space seem larger than it was. Easy access to the beach and close to the parking space!!! The only downside was that the dishwasher was broken and could not be repaired during our stay there, but the guy who manages this property was super nice and helpful! We wanted the hot water temperature to be increased and he took care of it the very next day. Since there was minimal breeze going through the unit, it would have helped to have AC window unit in bedrooms as it stayed pretty warm throughout the night.

Nice place!

We enjoyed staying at the Maui Vista. We loved the location and the condo complex was very nice.

PERFECTION

Our stay was perfect. The artwork around the condo was beautiful. Lots of lovely Maui books, and two televisions. (No time for T.V. in Maui) We had an amazing view of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. The condo was well equipped and the down stairs bed was total comfort. The owner was very helpful and we will reccomend this unit to everyone. The only problem was that the elevator was broken but the extra exercise was probably needed. We walked everywhere especially great walks on the beach. Mahalo Nanci - we can't wait for our next Hawaiian adventure and hopefully another stay in your condo.

Great Condo in Maui

I went with 3 other girls and found the condo beautifully decorated with all the conveniences of home. The patio looks out over the ocean and the complex pool to the left. Our stay was wonderful with a small block walk to the beach. We barbequed on the complex grills downstairs (elevator) and swam in the pool. But the walks on the beach were the greatest and sitting under one of the many Banyon trees with a book was really relaxing. The closeness to eating, shopping and snorkeling spots is perfect. I highly recommend a stay at this Condo.

Thank you for a bit of paradise

We can't say enough about our accomodations. Beyond PERFECT and the owner was so gracious about working with us and making sure the arrival instructions were very detailed, leaving nothing to worry about. The unit had all of the comforts of home away from home, but in paradise! Comfortable, well maintained, helpful staff, well-equipped and steps away from the best beach ever. We're suffering Maui withdrawals right now, so much so that we are already making plans to return as soon as possible. Mahalo again and again and again.

The view was to die for.
The bed was fantastic.
The amenities were everything we could ask for.

Fabulous!

Thanks Nanci and Travis.

We have many return visitors that love our place and we try to keep it nice for everyone and have our personal house cleaner to watch over things and will do special tasks for us - if you want to prestock the frig or have champagne waiting, or fruit, et cetera.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:What are the most fun things to do at your vacation rental?
A:Go to the beach. Mild waves, great temperature and rocks to look for fish and turtles. Watching the sunset from the beach with a glass of wine, or maitai. Also surf lessons are just about six blocks away. International Market Place for those shoppers
Q:What makes your vacation rental special?
A:I have got to say the view from the lanai. We are the top floor, so no one is "tromping" on you, plus we have lots of extra goodies, more than four plates, and even bikes to use (waiver has to be signed) coolers, beach toys, mats, and a toiletries basket so you have available shampoos and lotions so you reduce your weight and liquids coming over.
Q:What's the coolest nearby activity?
A:There are tennis courts on the property and swimming pools, but, come on...the ocean is right there. I like to go the Ulua Beach for snorkeling, though, and I like Makena's landing for divingand Turtle Town. La Perouse Bay is where I have seen porpoise...but then I have seen that 50 yards from our shore once.
