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!

Great Location

November 17, 2013

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.

Owner's reply:

Thanks Greg! Just getting around to finding this....

Great condo in a great location

March 8, 2013

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!

Adequate

March 31, 2012

We have rented numerous properties around the world and this is one of the one's that has most disappointed. It is not that the ad is fully inaccurate it is simply that it is only `just' what is stated. For example it is true that there is a bedroom with a king size bed and a double bed upstairs however the sofa in the living room is not a fold out bed and is in fact simply a covered foamie. The ensuite is with the bedroom upstairs, which is an open loft and thus has no privacy. The downstairs bedroom has privacy and very noisy air conditioning; although this helps lessen the sounds from the public breezeway. This was particularly an issue because we had construction going on in the public breezeway; which the owner had been informed about weeks earlier and yet said nothing to us, and caused both noise and dust. The kitchen is small and has adequate facilities however there was absolutely nothing else beyond the bare basics. Normally we would expect a fridge that had a few condiments, kitchen garbage bags, soap for the dishwasher and washer and at least a tea pot. The beach is spectacular however the reality is that there is a very busy road between you and the beach plus a block of houses. The beach access is great however this property is not beachfront. There are three pools in the facility but all three do not equal the size of a regular pool. There is parking available but no allocated parking and thus you often parked well away from your building. Finally the promised internet and phone were non-existent, intermittent and then gone. Though the owner was made aware of that, and seemed to attempt to fix it, we basically lived without. This impacted our kids recreation and being able to speak to their other parent,plus the fact that I work online and had no access. Adequate and only just. Our bottom line is that we would never rent this property again. Let me also state that at this point we have not only not recieved our damage deposit back we have been given no information about when we will recieve it back. What is our next step if this owner continues to not contact us regarding the damage deposit?

Wonderful stay in Kihei

March 5, 2012

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.

Owner's reply:

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for being so thoughtful and leaving a comment.

Neat and homy...

April 15, 2011

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.

Great Location

January 28, 2011

We recently stayed in this condo for our holiday. We were given the wrong number for our key so getting in was a little hectic at first. Upon arrival we were a little disappointed in the up keep. It needs some remodelling as things are getting worn out and dated. The owner was very accomodating and so was the housekeeper. The unit was very well located just across from one of the nicest beaches in Maui. We had a spectacular ocean view without being right on the ocean. If you expect new and extremely clean this is not the place for you. A little more TLC by the housekeeper would have made our stay a lot more enjoyable.

PERFECTION

November 17, 2010

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

October 23, 2010

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

October 15, 2010

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.

Would not go back

June 7, 2010

Not a bad location but the place could use a lot of T.L.C. The bedroom carpets had not been vacumed since the last people left and were very dirty. The pans were in such bad shape that no matter what you tried everything stuck to them. The bathtub could use a good scubing. This is our third time in Maui and this is the only time I would not stay at this location again.

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.
