Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 Adults + child)

UPDATE DECEMBER 2017 - New SPLIT AirConditioner with one head in the bedroom and one in the living room. Other refreshes including 200MBS internet, new living room furniture, desk, and kitchen items.

Maui Vista Condos are among the most beautiful on the island and this one surpasses them all. Refurbished, the décor is modern, comfortable and friendly. A ground floor condo it would be suitable for two adults and a school-aged or younger child. You only step away from the famous pristine white sands of Kamaole I and Charley Young beaches. You are mere feet away from a barbecue, as well as several swimming pools. The condo is modern, beautifully furnished and will very comfortably sleep up to four people. The bedroom includes a spacious king-sized bed featuring a Dormia Memory-Foam mattress, a 32' flat panel LED television, and ceiling fans to supplement the air conditioning when the nights are warm. In the living room, you will also find a 50 inch LCD television to entertain you along with a BlueTooth speaker system. The full kitchen features all the small appliances you could wish for. Make a Mai Tai using the blender, or pop some finger food into the microwave.

The lounges and chairs on the private lanai will give you plenty of seating if you choose to simply enjoy the sunshine and sip a drink, or a quiet place to relax after a day spent sightseeing or shopping in some of the many fabulous stores and shops. Plus, the many amenities you're going to enjoy will have you returning year after year to this perfect island retreat. You're never far from an amazing view, a beautiful sunset, a fabulous golf course or a wonderful restaurant. Why spend your time in a costly hotel when you could enjoy your vacation your way, with all the comfort and the convenience of home. Your kitchen is modern and convenient and holds all that you need to whip up your own masterpieces of culinary delight, while the dining room features seating for four, or you may choose to eat al fresco, using the table for four on the lanai. Complete with a Bosch washer and dryer, a hairdryer as well as lounge chairs for the beach, all you really need to bring to Maui when you rent this little gem, is your bathing suit, your suntan lotion and you.

No vacation could be more perfect than a vacation on Maui, with the wonderful activities such as para-sailing, snorkeling, diving, Zipline, sailing, watching the whales, hiking or riding the volcano or the marine preserve. The only thing that could make it more perfect is this condo at Maui Vista, a central location to nearly anything you can find to do on Maui.

You will not find a higher quality unit in the price range.

What makes this condo unique

One of only three condos in Maui Vista that uses a Split AC instead of window units.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Second time to stay at this comfortable condo and will be staying again in a couple of months for a longer time. The condo is well equipped with an amazing kitchen, not the normal Walmart items.



The only issue I thought I had was with the Dryer. It looked like it did not work. When I brought it up to the owner, he assured me that it was just cosmetic and the dryer did work. He was replacing it and the washer before my next trip.



The main reasons I stay at this unit is the Memory Foam bed (I wake up totally rested), the modern Air Conditioner (not window units) and the location a short walk to my favorite beach, Charley Young Beach.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 10 month old daughter recently stayed at the condo and we absolutely loved it. Donald had everything we needed for the week including chairs, umbrellas and beach towels. The air conditioning worked great which my husband was very thankful for and the place was nice and clean when we arrived. We had other friends in the complex staying in other units and we by far had the nicest one. Our daughter had a great time playing on the grass and it was super easy to get to the beach for water time and sunsets. The parking in comparison to the first unit is great. Those staying in the first unit had a lot of cars in their area while we never had a hard time finding parking in the upper lot.

Overall we had a great stay, we would definitely recommend this condo to anyone and we hope to return on our next Maui vacation!!

Unit not as described. Owner didn't contact us ahead of time with known issues.

  • 1 of 5

The condo itself isn't bad. Nice layout and the location is great. The biggest issue we had is with the owner and his constant excuses and lack of follow up.

• The original listing indicate FULL A/C in both living room and bedroom. Upon arrival, the A/C wasn't working and there was a portable unit in the bedroom only.

• It appears that the A/C unit went out in August based on another review on VRBO. In that review, owner acknowledged the outside A/C unit was out and a new one was on order from the mainland. Owner stated in an email to me that the unit has been fixed and failed a few times since Aug. I find it hard to believe that a new outside A/C central until would fail. Also the outside until was not new leaving me wondering if the unit was ever ordered.

• August review stated a movable A/C unit has been put in temporarily; however, the unit is not movable from room to room since it has to be vented to the outside. So the bedroom was cool, but the living room was like an oven since the days were over 90 degrees.

• Owner stated that he found the last unit on the island and was searching for additional units but since it was the end of the season none were available. However, we had friends who send a pic of a display of portable units on 11/3 from the local Walmart

• Owner had 2 months to contact us prior to our arrival that there was an issue with the condo as described. He CHOOSE not to notify us of an issue. In addition, there was no information in the condo that there was a problem with the unit and we spent 45 minutes trying to figure out how to cool down the living room condo.

• Owner agreed to a partial refund and I’m still waiting for the refund despite several emails from him where he said he would send it.

As soon as I notified the owner I was filing a formal complaint, he ask for my mailing address. I had asked him almost a month ago if he had everything to process the refund. We do understand things go wrong with condo's, but it how an owner handles the issues that makes all the difference in the world. If the owner had been upfront and honest about things, and followed through with a timely refund I wouldn't have filed the complaint. Owner has a lot of excuses, but no action.

Owner's Response: Your feedback is well received. Going forward the cleaner will cool down the condo for new arrivals. A temporary portable AC unit was installed in the condo until the split system could be delivered and installed.  This portable unit was a higher BTU than a window unit and provided more cold air than the standard in Maui Vista condos. Unfortunately, it does take approximately 20 minutes for the condo to cool down when a new tenant arrival using any AC.   Please note because repairs to the old split AC system kept failing, in December 2017 the entire AC split system was replaced.  As you can see from the reviews before and after Lori’s stay, guests with the same temporary AC unit gave 4-5-star reviews. Other than her concern regarding the AC, Lori liked the unit as most everyone does.

a/c not working bed no good

a/c did not work and bed was not good old

  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: I am sorry you had an issue with the bed, it has been one of the things other guests have raved about. It is very comfortable. You just may not like memory foam beds. It is actually a very expensive bed. As far as the AC is concerned, it did fail and a movable one was put in temporarily. One has been ordered though it has to come from the mainland. I wish you would have contacted me instead of just writing such a review that does not match all the other great reviews we receive. Another one of my guests just requested the manufacture and model of the bed since they had the best nights sleep in a long time and want to buy the same bed for their home,.
