Maui Vista Condo
Maui Vista Condo
We've stayed at Maui Vista several times and have always enjoyed the convenience of it's location. It is close to the beach and with in walking distance to anything you need. This is the nicest unit we have ever been in at Maui Vista. It was clean and well appointed. Owners were responsive. I would not hesitate to stay again or recommend.

Condo rental met all our expectations plus
I have gone on line in the past to find rental holiday accommodations with mixed results, but our stay at Tropical Island Condo more then lived up to the description and our expectations. The interior was very nicely appointed; kitchen appliances and equipment top notch and the grounds were immaculate. Being right across the street from Kamaole1 Beach at the Charlie Young Park was so convenient. We checked out many other beaches on the Island but kept coming back to "our" beach. All of our questions and request where dealt with quickly Karen was so accommodating. A week before we left we received a pkg. of brochures and maps to help us plan some of our road trips; I was so impressed. The gentleman who looks after their unit stopped into introduce himself and was also very helpful. There is a decent selection within walking distance for shops, services and eating places it is very comfortable for two but would be a little too cosy for some people with four. A family with small children may be ok. It was an exceptional stay and would definitely return to this property and recommend it unconditionally.

Best condo we've stayed at
Best condo we've stayed at
This was the nicest condo I've seen (it looks just like the pictures) and I've seen quite a few. The 2nd building is far enough from the street that it's pretty quiet. The couches & bed were super comfortable. All the bedding/cookware/flatware were upscale and of excellent quality. Being so close to Charley Young Beach was awesome! I stayed in north Kihei before and the beaches that were walking distance were not as nice. We watched the sunset at the beach almost every night here. We also went boogie boarding (they have 1 provided in the unit). There are plenty of places that are easy to walk to (shopping, restaurants) and the main surfing beach is really close too (2 min drive). I would have given it 5 stars but when we arrived the apartment had not been cleaned. I called the local contact number and his wife, Linda, owns the cleaning company and came over that night to clean everything up. She also stopped by a few days later to drop off some flowers as an apology. The rest of our trip was great and everything in the condo was perfect. We're coming back over the summer and sad to see that it's not available for the time we'll be there.

Perfect locationGuest comment entered by owner
I could not end my vacation and not write a review on our rental ...which was amazing. First when booking Karen and Steve responded within hours to every email. What you see in the pics is what you get. I was fortunate to see many of the other rentals and ours hands down was the best. The kitchen is very well equipped, the closet is stocked with beach chairs, Matts, cooler, beach towels. The beach is across the street. Restaurants and stores all within walking distance both ways. This is a very central location and convenient to drive to any part of the island without wasting a whole day driving. Must sees are road to Hana, Willie K he plays at Mulligans every Wed and Thurs 10 min drive, sunsets are amazing at the Charlie young beach. This is a rental you will not regret. Mahalo Karen and Steve

Amazing condoGuest comment entered by owner
Steve & Karen, thanks for sharing your amazing condo. We met so many of the other residents, great group here at Maui Vista. Your condo is by far the nicest decor of all I visited. Snorkeling was amazing - the turtles...wow! Kihei Cafe was a regular stop almost daily. And great ice cream up by Denny's. One request - a land line. It would be very convenient to be able to call locally. We will definitely be back...hopefully sooner rather than later, haha! Thanks again :)

Gorgeous, comfortable, and well located
Dear Steve & Karen, Thank you for opening your condo to us, we had a beautiful vacation here in Maui and it was in no small part due to this gorgeous, comfortable, and well located condo. This was our second time to Hawaii and first time to Maui. As I was 31 weeks pregnant we had a very low-key trip filled with whale watching, sun bathing, bbqing, dining, and resting. We highly recommend Hawaii Ocean Project's Whale watching tour, a trip to the upcountry, sunset on Charley Young Beach, beaches at Makena-Wailea, and the Tiki Lounge. Mahalo!

Awesome Kihei Condo!
Awesome Kihei Condo!
The condo was perfect for us (2). It was nicely upgraded and well laid out. The kitchen was very well equipped and there was a cooler, beach chairs, mats, snorkeling gear, beach towels and everything we could possibly have needed for our 2 week stay. The unit was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The Lanai faced the parking lot but that didn't take away from the experience; it was fun to watch all the comings and goings of the complex.

My husband and I make annual vacations to Kihei and try to stay at the Maui Vista. We love the complex as it is generally very quiet, clean and well cared for. The location is perfect as you can walk almost any of the local resteraunts, watch the sunsets across the street and the beach is beautiful. This unit in paticular is one of my favourites for sure. It is as beautiful as the pictures show. It is also a very open configuration which we particuarly enjoyed. There is nothing you need to bring to enjoy the beach - coolers,chairs,mats and beach towels are provided. My husband and I slept both in the bedroom and on the Murphy bed. The bedroom matress is very comfortable and quiet. We tried the Murphy bed, again very comfortable but found that if you leave the sliding glass doors open you will hear a fair amount of noise from the parking area ( 5 am seems to be the start up time). This is easily remedied by shutting the door and turning on the efficient air conditioning or fan. I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants to visit Kihe. Karen and Steve are wonderful to deal with as is the property manager. The only reason I never gave this an excellent rating was due to there being no phone service in the unit. I am from Canada and even with a plan on my cell the calls and air time add up quickly.

Perfect Amenity-Filled Home Base!Guest comment entered by owner
Perfect Amenity-Filled Home Base!
What a fabulous week we spent in Kihei, the natural surroundings made even better by having such a great home base to operate from. Steve and Karen have thought of and supplied everything needed for the perfect vacation in their beautiful condo, from beach chairs to tennis supplies to a cooler for packing lunch along on your day trips. With Charley Young beach right across the street, we found it easy to pack up and make the very short walk to the sand multiple times daily. Great snorkeling with easy access on both ends of the beach as well. Shops and restaurants abound either way you turn from the condo, rendering driving nearly unnecessary if you plan to stick close to "home". The condo itself is beautifully and comfortably finished, allowing those who stay immediate relaxation. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and tools, making it easy to whip up a meal if the mood strikes. Grocery stores are nearby and easy to find, allowing some real money saving options if you don't wish to dine out every day. Parking at the condo is easy to come by - We could always peek out and see our car if we wanted to from the lanai. Posted "quiet hours" between 10pm and 8am keep the premises peaceful, and we were awaked every day with the sound of tropical birds rather than voices from neighbors. All-in-all, a wonderful place we would return to in a heartbeat, and fully plan on doing so!

Great stay!Guest comment entered by owner
Thanks - Ala-oi - that's Hawaii talk (made it up) means I had a great stay! I suspect I will be returning to Maui soon. You gave me a lot of help in seeing the island and I had a great stay. You've done a great job with the condo and no one could get a better deal with all you have to offer. Mahalo!

About the owner: Stephen and Karen have been together for 15 years, and are kindred sprits; we enjoy traveling and exploring the world. We currently make our home in the Seattle area and plan to soon move on island. Stephen is a native Washingtonian. He works as a Manufacturing Engineer and is also a Scuba Instructor (PADI certified IDC Staff Instructor). Karen was born in central New York and works as an accountant. We love to help people plan their trips and share their excitement in discovering Maui. We hope that you enjoy our 2nd home and your home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Maui Vista:
We love the Kihei area - it has great beaches, plenty of restaurants and shops, and is a convenient base from which to explore the rest of the island. We chose Maui Vista because its walking distance to the beach and everything else we need in Kihei, and it has beautiful, well-maintained grounds. The staff at Maui Vista is top notch!
