"My friend and I took our first trip together with our 4 teenage boys. (Before that, for over 10 years, our family trips always included our husbands.) I had spent many hours researching and reading information and reviews about condos before deciding to stay at this one in Maui Vista. Fortunately, all of the time and effort I put in paid off. The location of the condo was great! We felt very safe in the neighborhood. Also, the grocery store, snorkel rental place, restaurants and shops were nearby. Inside the condo, it was very clean and neat. The remodeling that had been done throughout had been done very nicely. The kitchen and bathrooms were wonderful. There were plenty of things that were provided inside the condo to make our stay comfortable and fun. We were able to cook (and save money) when we wanted to, and we used the beach chairs, towels, cooler, and boogie boards as well as a large beach bag when we left. Additionally, I was relieved to find a vacuum cleaner, broom and dust pan as well as other supplies, so we could do light housekeeping as needed. I had concerns about having 6 of us together for 11 days, and I had forgotten to ask Dorli if there would be those items available for us to use. On Wednesday nights, there is free entertainment at the mall in Wailea. When we were there, a saleswoman in one of the stores said that the mall parking lot had been free, but they started charging for parking. Since many people were upset, they stopped charging people to park again, but I don't know what the situation was after our stay in Maui. Hopefully, parking is still free. In Kihei, we went to Shaka for garlic and spinach pizza, Eskimo Candy for Poki Bowls, and Ami Ami for "fancier" meals. If you want to drive outside of Kihei, there is a great swap meet on Saturdays in Kahului (only 50 cents admission), Leoda's (a small place with delicious pies) on the side of the highway in Lahaina and Stillwell's Bakery and Café in Wailuku. At Stillwell's, the crab cake sandwich was delicious. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone wanting to stay in Maui. Dorli is also very friendly and helpful, and she promptly responded to my e-mails. Also, the security deposit was credited back to our account in less than a week!
Thank you, Dorli, for your kindness and helpfulness and for letting us stay in your condo! I hope to be back before long!
