About Tara and Bruce Wells

Bruce and Tara Wells live in Vancouver, B.C.,

Bruce is retired and Tara is the principal of a large Interior Design firm. Her company is one of the top 10 Interior Design firms in Greater Vancouver.

Tara and Bruce Wells purchased this condo in 2006

Why Tara and Bruce Wells chose South Maui

We bought in Maui Vista for several reasons. We loved the amenities. With three pools, three sets of tennis courts and three barbeque areas, there's ample amenities for all guests, even in high season. Other complexes often share only one common amenity with several buildings.

We also love how well kept the grounds are. Lovely flowering hibiscus, oleander and plumeria abound the property. This is complemented with fan, coconut and date palms - a true tropical resort.

What makes this condo unique

Our home is very popular, as it is newly updated with a fun mix of tropical salsa and key lime. We are always keeping it current.

The kitchen is very well equipped, as Tara loves to cook. We like our comfort, so there are several types of beach chairs, beach umbrellas and a cooler for your use.

We've had many comments from guests how comfortable our beds are. We felt good mattresses were a good investment for our comfort, as well as our guests' comfort.

Maui Vista, in general, is very quiet and cool, as the buildings are formed with concrete blocks.

We chose a garden view with a peak-a-boo view of the ocean, as the lanai on this side of the building is a much nicer temperature. We can sit comfortably on our lanai in the afternoon, where many facing west cannot, due to the intense heat.

Guestbook comments from the manager

(From Guestbook) Captains Log - June 2, 2008

As we prepare for departure from our quarters, which we so briefly called "home" for 10 days, we sit back and reminisce of our time here on this strange tropical world called "Maui" ...I must say this mission was a memorable one and worthy of data banks. I shall forward all of the intel I have gathered, to other captains, who are planning to travel to this side of the universe and recommend starting at this bunker. Transmission over....

Return to paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to return to this wonderful condo in paradise. Kihei is our favorite place to stay on Maui, it's just so laid back and has the best swimming beaches. The Wells condo is a 5 minute walk to Charley Young beach. Close the condo door and 5 minutes later you have your toes in the sand. The condos kitchen was remodeled since our last visit and what a pleasant surprise it was. We love to cook and the new layout was fantastic for two cooks! The budgies in the palm trees in the morning were great entertainment as we sipped coffee and ate papaya with lime juice. The pictures on VRBO do not lie, this condo is as wonderful as it appears.

Can't wait to come back again soon. Aloha.

Return to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Since this was our second stay in this condo we felt right at home as soon as we drove onto the Maui Vista property. Tara and Bruce have made some wonderful updates to the kitchen, we couldn't believe how much work space there was. Our biggest concern each day as we ate papaya with lime on the lanai was what beach to swim or snorkel at. Not much of a concern when one of Maui's best beaches is a five minute walk from your front door.

Being in building 3 is a plus for the privacy and quiet evenings away from the street noise. Kehei truly has the aloha spirit this town is so relaxed and easy going. If you want something casual turn right out of the parking lot, something upscale turn left toward Wailea. We hope to return soon. Aloha.

Amazing apartment - even more then expected!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am very impressed by the apartment and grateful to my hosts. I have NEVER seen such a level or organization, which made me feel right at home with my 2 y son during our 3 week stay. The apartment is beautifully and thoughtfully decorated, situated in the prime location (partial view of the water through the palm trees!) at the end of the 3 hours complex with birds singing everything morning and no street noise. Amazing views of the mountains from the bedroom. Highly recommend to anyone. Rare find!

Hosts were very helpful with the advice on the local shopping, etc., I used every bit of the advice, which again made it very easy for me to get around with a 2y son!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Maui and we couldn’t be happier with Maui Vista Resort and this beautifully appointed unit. We thoroughly enjoyed the quiet location of this unit within the complex, away from the road and elevator. This very comfortable condo was well equipped with everything you could need and then some! We prefer to eat in, so we were thankful to have such a well-equipped, nicely laid-out kitchen. Our first week here, we explored the beaches in South Maui. Charley Young Beach, right across the street, was hands down our favourite with lovely clean sand, beautiful views and rocky points at either end for snorkeling. We also found it to be less crowded than other beaches in the area. We were so happy to have beach chairs, beach towels and large cooler bag available for our use! Shops, restaurants and other beaches were within an easy walk and the bus stop is at the next corner. Bruce and Tara, you were so wonderful to deal with, fully answering our questions without delay. Thank you for your hospitality!! We will definitely return to your lovely home in paradise on our next trip to Maui!

Wow! This condo is beautiful and cozy feeling. We are repeat guests and would only stay in this Maui condo . The walk in glass shower is amazing. We love the quiet on the lanai where we look over the garden and watch the parrots in the trees in the morning with our coffee. The location is perfect, quiet, and close to everything you will need. It is obvious the owners take great pride in their condo. All you will need is available to you in the condo including towels, chairs, and a cooler for your beach time. The renovation just done is beautiful and you can tell it' s done by a professional. Being the woman, I get to do the laundry (!) and appreciate the washer and dryer in the condo as well. We just love this well decorated and functional condo. 🌴

Beautiful Condo in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully decorated condo that is so different from the typical, wicker furniture type places I've seen. It has all the amenities you need for a long-term stay, including a washer and dryer. The location was great as well. Walking distance to Charley Young beach, which is so much quieter and calmer than the resort beaches. I would definitely stay here again!
