About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

Come and enjoy the Maui sun..and lifestyle. Stay in our completely furnished 1 bedroom condo that is clean, comfortable and decorated Island Style. The Maui Vista complex is surrounded by 10 acres of lush, tropical gardens. Our vacation condo is located in South Kihei, right across the street from Charlie Young/Kamaole I Beach, that is a gorgeous white sand beach. It's perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or just relaxing.

Our unit is quiet and private, one of the most desirable at Maui Vista. In's in the 2nd building, so it's away from the traffic noise of Kihei Road, yet still very close to the beach. This ground floor unit is easily accessible without having to use stairs/elevator, and since we're on the very end, it's very private. Most units here only provide A/C in the living room, but we also offer it in the bedroom, in addition to 2 ceiling fans. Our condo features a lanai, living/dining area, plus full kitchen. We have a Queen bed in bedroom, plus a very comfortable sofa bed, so we can accommodate up to 4 guests.

Take a Virtual Tour right now! Just below our Calendar is a link to our tour, you can clearly view our unit, and grounds.

We've been coming to Maui for more than 20 years, love it because it offers the best of all the Hawaiian Islands. Don't miss the road to Hana with the beautiful tropical rainforests and waterfalls. We recommend the snorkel trip to Molokini, or taking a whale watching boat out of Ma'alaea Harbor. Make sure to visit the shops and art galleries on Front Street in Lahaina, not to mention the Shops at Wailea for world class shopping.

On a typical day in our condo, you'll wake to to the tropical birds in the garden, enjoy some delicious Hawaiian coffee and fresh local fruit on the lanai, while you plan your day. It's hard to a set of tennis, or walk across the street for an early morning swim, or maybe start out with a round of golf at Wailea...or maybe just relax by the pool.

Local markets, restaurants, parks, and shops are just a short walk, and we are also just a few miles from the exclusive Wailea resorts, famous for golf, shopping and celebrity vacations!

Maui has consistently been voted #1 Island in the world. Kihei is conveniently located 12 miles from the airport, on the sunniest part of the Island. We are close to all the best beaches, shopping and restaurants. Hotels in the area start at approx. $200+ a night, but you can enjoy our condo, and feel totally at home for a lot less!

Ask about our returning guest discounts, and special rates for Airline Employees!

We're looking forward to helping you plan you Maui vacation, please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions...Aloha

About tricia chiariello

Ralph and I have been coming to Maui for more than 20 a flight attendant I see lots of beautiful places in the world, but I have to agree with local Hawaiian who say 'Maui No Ka Oi' which means 'Maui is the Best' After renting for so long, I finally convinced my husband we needed to buy a little piece of Island paradise..We are both so glad we did. Come visit our Island, and enjoy our condo, when you are looking for a relaxing, affordable getaway. Ralph and Tricia Chiariello

tricia chiariello purchased this condo in 2005

Why tricia chiariello chose Kihei

I did some homework when we decided to buy, Kihei is the sunniest part of Maui, and South Kihei is the most desirable area. In order to find something affordable, we aren't directly on the beach, but a 2 minute walk from it...Right accross from Kamaole I and the famous Charley Young Beach. It's nice to have a car here, but not necessary, since there are so many shops, restaurants, 24 hour grocery within walking distance.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is one of the best in the Maui Vista complex, we are in Bldg 2, so away from the traffic of Kihei Road, yet still so close to the beach. An end unit is nice to have, cause it includes AC in the bedroom as well as living room, the other properties dont have that. I think one of the best features of our condo is the privacy we enjoy being at the bottom/end unit. You don't see other guests walking by, only the gardener on Tuesdays!! Aloha, Tricia

Maui Vista no ka oi! "Maui Vista is the best!"

  • 5 of 5

Location!!! Conveniently close to all Kihei - shopping, rentals, restaurants and most importantly the beach! Very quick walk across the street to Charley Young. Clean comfortable and stocked with beach toys & supplies! Located in the 2nd of 3 buildings, you are away from the foot and street traffic of S. Kihei (the main street through town). You must stay here to understand why this end unit is one of the more desirable ones. Very quiet and private lanai. Close to parking. Not much to complain about. My family of 4 had an awesome time & the owners are more than accommodating! Easy communication. Can't wait to come back!

Beautiful place,lots of privacy.

  • 4 of 5

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Chiariello,

My family and I enjoyed our visit at Maui Vista. The condo was perfect with plenty of privacy. We like the open kitchen , living room and lanai. The trade winds in the afternoon was nice with the windows and sliding glass door open , no need to use the air conditioner. I liked looking at the chart on the wall.

The landscaping with the plants , trees and flowers is so beautiful. It was nice to hear the birds chirping. It was hard to leave. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful condo.

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Kihei and easy parking next to the unit with security patrolling at night. The place is walking distance to the beach, Foodland, restaurants/shops, ABC, and tour companies will also pick up from this location. We enjoyed the tennis courts and all the beach gear that was supplied. Thanks for a great week!

Almost 4 stars...

  • 3 of 5

The location of this unit was great! It's across the street from good snorkeling and is walking distance to lots of good restaurants. It was well stocked with kitchen and beach stuff. It was quiet, the walls are concrete so you can't hear neighbors above or next-door.

We couldn't give it the 4th star because of the lack of attention to maintenance and upkeep detail.

Examples: the toilet leaked and the seat didn't stay up, the corner of the bedroom where the old AC unit was looked dirty and grimy, 2 light-bulbs were out, the headboard was broken/detached from the bed etc.

Lots of small things that added up to a less comfortable stay.

Also, the unit had a lot of cockroaches. It's a ground floor unit and we don't blame the owners for this, but it really added to our discomfort.

We did enjoy the back patio which felt private because it was on the end of the building where people don't pass by.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate feedback from guests and come over 3-4 times a year and try to stay on top of any maintenance issues. We have been here all week and haven’t seen any roaches. However we also have quarterly pest control. It’s also helpful to keep the condo clean, to prevent this problem. Unfortunately I remember this particular guest since my cleaner reported they left the unit very dirty.

Super Cozy

Cozy condo to stay in. Plenty of room and all the necessities for the beach. Cute little back porch perfect for breakfast or just relaxing when the sun goes down. Quick walk to the beach or any shops near by. Easy checkin and check out. Would definitely stay again!

The condo was a nice place to stay. There are plenty of dishes and cooking utensils to prepare your own food, if you want. The bed was very comfortable. There are beach chairs, an umbrella, towels and snorkeling gear for fun at the beach which is just across the road. There is also a small ice chest for a picnic lunch. There are tennis rackets, as well. The unit is close to the parking lot. The condo complex is near several very good restaurants. There is only a couple things that could use some attention. One is the window blinds and the other is the drawers on the kitchen cabinets. All in all a comfortable place to relax. I would stay here again.
