  • Fantastic penthouse oceanfront condo. Great bang for your buck!

    "My group of 4 lifetime friends and colleagues enjoyed this picturesque oceanfront condo in Ma'alaea. Having breakfast on the lanai while watching huge turtles and WHALES was priceless! The condo was spotless, stocked with clean linens and was equipped snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, beach chairs and snorkeling equipment. The condo community is within a 5 minute walk to great restaurants, bars and whale watching cruises just steps from your door. Centrally located on Maui and almost everything is located with a 15-30 drive to all that Maui has to offer. Todd and Stefani were very attentive and responsive. It was like crashing at a family member's house. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We shall return."

  • Enjoyed my vacation

    "I recently returned from my Maui vacation of 2 weeks at the Royal Mauian. This is the 7th time I've stayed at the Royal Mauian out of the 9 times I've visited Maui in the last 16 years. I keep returning to this property because I find it to be the perfect place for a wonderful Mauian vacation. It is just steps away from two beautiful beaches. Good snorkeling right in front of condo. This time we saw a family of 4-5 turtles! The roof top garden is great for BBQs and to watch the sunset while eating. The property continues to be very well maintained. The swimming pool area is clean and quiet. You have everything you need just around the condo: stores, restaurants, water sports rentals, shaved ice, etc. The one thing that was different with this trip is that it was my first time dealing directly with the condo owner and it proved to be a very good experience. It was great to be able to initially communicate directly with Paul, who really helped me make this vacation possible. He was very kind and understanding. And then, the local property management people he uses to deal with while in Maui are also very pleasant and helpful. Upon arrival to the unit, we found a bottle of wine, a box of chocolates and 2 bottles of water awaiting for us on the dining table. They had gone in prior and turned the lights and the music on to ensure a welcoming ambience. They also offered me their computer, copier, fax machine and their help with anything I needed while in the island. It felt very personal and comfortable to deal with Paul-the owner and with Don and Ken from 5Star Maui Resorts, Inc (their office is across the street from the condo building!). My elderly mother, teenager niece, a friend myself were all very happy with our vacation and truly enjoyed our stay this unit of the Royal Mauian. I would definitely return to this unit and recommend it to friends and family."

  • Condo in a great location

    "This was our second time at Maui Vista but our first in Lily and Tuan's unit. It was true to the description. Clean, spacious, nicely decorated and pretty much all the comforts of home you need while away. Nice touches like the beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, towels etc), binoculars for watching the whales from the balcony and stocked soap and amenities on hand to get you through the first day until you have time to go shopping. The location is excellent with or without a car. You can walk to anything you would need - beaches, shopping, restaurants - and also there is a large parking lot available if you rent a car for your stay. You don't have to worry about searching for parking like in some condo's. The only thing I would point out is there is not a lot of cupboard space to store food if you do a big grocery shop, so keep that in mind if you head to Costco! Kitchen was stocked with appliances - dishwasher, full size fridge, full oven, microwave and washer/dryer. I think they had A/C as well but I go to Hawaii for the heat so we didn't use it. Large ceiling fans in all the rooms move the awesome Hawaii air through the unit as if you were outside. Wonderful. All in all an excellent choice in the Kihei area. We will most definitely return for another visit to this unit!"

  • Best Value!

    "My hubby & I stayed at this perfect condo for our 8yr anniversary. So perfect! It's literally across the street from a beautiful beach with plush white sand. There are multiple walking distant grocery stores to choose from! Restaurants galore! The kitchen has everything u need! No need to stop at Costco, Safeway is maybe a 5 min drive away from the spot. The condo is equipped with 2 sized coolers (big & small) that are great to take for a picnic while exploring the Island. It seemed that every place we ventured to was only a 20 min drive away. Plenty of parking & their unit is right in front, near the convenient elevator. It's a very spacious layout. Plenty of room to comfortably fit 6 adults. In addition to the pullout coach, there's also a provided blowup mattress. Granted there is only one bathroom. We will be returning with our children! Kerry was a joy to work with. Always provided quick responses & even honored a lower price that was listed for the month prior. So very accommodating! The AA Oceanfront staff ( on-site management team) was also very quick to respond to questions & super polite & helpful. The AC unit is only provided in the front room however, we slept with the windows & sliding doors open & were very comfortable during September. My husband's temperature generally escalates pretty quickly but he didn't complain once. The temp was very comfortable! I highly recommend this location. As the heading states, best value! My cousins stayed directly across the street & their condo was $150 extra a night. Not worth the 100 yard walk, I promise! It feels like home & they truly make u feel like welcomed guest! Thank you Kerry!"

Keep an eye out, you just might see a humpback whale while you're lounging. There's birdwatching and hiking spots for nature lovers as well.
