About Gurukar S Khalsa

My wife and I live an hour north of San Francisco near the coast on a family farm. We have 4 grown children and 2 grandchildren so far (our son and grandson are pictured on the surfboard just off Kamaole Beach across the street from the condo). I am a general contractor and my wife works at our local community clinic. She also grows a variety of fruit which she makes into jam and sells to local stores. We make it down to Kihei 1 to 3 times a year and have had some great family vacations there.

Gurukar S Khalsa purchased this condo in 2003

Why Gurukar S Khalsa chose Kihei

We first visited Maui on our honeymoon in 1974 and have enjoyed going back over the years. When looking to buy a condo we found Maui Vista to have all the things we were looking for - convenient access to a family-friendly beach, beautiful grounds, tennis courts, and walking distance to great restaurants and shopping.

Look for another place. This condo wasn't very good.

  • 1 of 5

The toilet and bath tub stopped working on the Saturday evening we stayed in this unit, and the property manager couldn't get a plumber in until mid-morning the next day. As a result, we had to drive to a public restroom at McDonalds before we went to bed, and then again in the morning. I recognize these things happen, but when you're on vacation and you've paid to rent a condo, it seems like it's fair to expect the bathroom to work, and if a major problem arises you might expect the landlord to offer some form of compensation -- or at least an apology for the inconvenience. We checked out of the unit 11 days ago and haven't heard anything back from them. I emailed earlier this week to ask them to consider refunding one night of our stay, and they haven't bothered to respond to my email. At least acknowledge our family's inconvenience while in the condo and tell me you're not going to do anything to make up for the problems we had with the place. I'm not very impressed, and I wouldn't recommend this place at all.

Owner's Response: This was an unfortunate situation in which the plumbing in our unit was impacted by a larger building issue. Our property manager was available and did everything she could at the time to address the situation. Since the issue could not be resolved immediately, we decided to refund the guests for their last night. For some reason the refund and message to the guest did not go through the first time, which prompted the renter to write this negative review. He has since been refunded, but has not responded to our messages.

Way too dirty

  • 1 of 5

I normally dont complain but.....

This is Not the place I will like to come back to, after letting the homeowner know of a few problems and lack of cleanlliness, it was sad not to get an answer from homeowner. Tv is to old and DVD and remote didnt even work.

Visiting Maui was great but I would not recommend staying where that deyer vent its not conected right so you got fuzz all over the place dont waist your $ because this place its not something worth it!

Great Spot for the Family

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here. The condo itself is not super fancy, but the Murphy bed makes it feel spacious. We appreciated that it was well stocked- including snorkel gear & boogie board, umbrella & chairs. (I hate when you rent a condo and there isn't even salt and pepper) There were plenty of towels & extra sheets. The condo complex is a tennis players dream, but the pool is rather small. This unit is at the end of the hall which was very nice (so you don't hear every person coming & going) It was in the 3rd building, which is farther from the road, but I imagine quieter. We (family of 4, including a 5 & 6 year old) walked to the beach across the street, not far at all, but we did prefer driving to other beaches. I would highly recommend this condo, well stocked & you can not beat the price.

Great Condo to take the family

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo for our family of 4. Both beds were very comfortable, second bed was a Murphy bed. Condo had everything we needed and more. Great to have little things like salt and pepper, sugar and paper towels also laundry soap all provided. Everything needed to cook at the condo and entertain friends. Great location, nice and quiet, close to everything you would need to walk to, beach or stores. This condo was a perfect fit for our families vacation.

I would defiantly recommend this condo and I will book this condo again next year.

It was also very easy working with the owner and he was very quick to respond to my questions.

Good unit

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed at the Maui Vista six times and would rent this unit again for the following reasons: 1. It was very clean 2. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. 3. The Murphy bed was so convenient. 4. The beach gear was awesome, including fins, snorkels, good quality boogie boards, and chairs and umbrella. 5. The kitchen was well stocked. Although, the DVD player tray would not open, this wasn't an issue because there were so many other things to do at this location. Be sure to check out Bistro 808 during your stay in Kihei.

Awesome time in Maui with great accomodations to boot

  • 5 of 5

Easy to work with owner on booking. The condo is exactly as pictured. The unit has a nice and quiet location being second to last unit at the end of the hallway. No noise from parking lot either due to being set back far enough. Liked the included paper towels, laundry detergent and just what we needed as far as small appliances and the well stocked kitchen. Used the cooler for our picnic trip up to Haleakala, beach towels for Molikini snorkel trip.

Lanai has nice private view due to tall Areca palms that block adjacent parking area. Nice green lawn view. Washer/dryer was great for washing our clothes after a day out and about. Plenty of parking for the rental car. Could actually take city bus to location from airport and get by with no car at all due to everything within walking distance. Can book trips and activities at the condo office if needed. Saw security cruising the parking lot at night on a golfcart. Not sure if it is 24/7 though.

The pull down bed for the kids worked out perfect. The wifi was a plus with all of our cell phones and laptop to connect to and keep track of emails and the kids to watch their videos and play games. Cable TV with DVD player worked great. Had alot of channels. The condo location in Kihei made it easy to walk over to Charley Young beach, the Cove Park as well as numerous bars, resturaunts and grocery. Had some good meals at Coconut's, Moose's, Cafe O'Lei. Good drinks at the Triangle area and shopped at Foodland, Long's Drugs.

Defintely recommend this condo for familly with two, maybe even three kids. Big couch could be used for the third kid or smaller adult. Not ocean view/oceanfront but the money we saved was used for fun activities and some great food experiences on Maui and around Kihei.
