About Tara and Bruce Wells

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

Bruce is retired and Tara is the owner 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....

Outstanding Condo!

  • 5 of 5

What a GREAT condo! It was nestled perfectly in the middle of everything Maui. Literally just a 2-3 minute walk to the beach or a quick 3-4 minute drive to some awesome restaurants near by. Tara and Bruce were awesome hosts! They provided more that we needed, the condo was well stocked with every amenity one could think of, and they also provided a super cool book with things to do on Maui from shopping to eating!

The condo was extremely quiet and everyone within the condo community were respectful and super friendly. Whenever we were just relaxing in the condo (morning, noon or night) it was as if no one else was around. The condo grounds were beautifully manicured and maintained with breathtaking flowers and trees native to the island.

If you're considering securing this amazing unit, just do it! You will not regret it at all! In addition Tara and Bruce are incredibly friendly and helpful hosts. They deserve 5+ stars!

Comfortable, clean and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Great little condo! The room was cool, with just the fans on, when we arrived. It was clean

and nicely updated. There was more than enough room for my mother to relax in. Her only

complaint, initially was she felt the sheets on the bed were "scratchy." I felt them, and they

seemed fine, just maybe not what she is use to. There was some work being done installing solar panels on the building, but it didn't seem to impact her stay. Overall, a nice condo at a reasonable price.

Fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed two weeks in this beautifully decorated and comfy condo. We like to cook and eat in and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need. We walked to the beach every day which is across the street. The hosts Bruce and Tara include chairs and beach towels for your use. You can walk to nearby restaurants for happy hour and music. The grocery store is also within walking distance. Tennis courts and pools are a part of their complex. This is well worth a visit clean comfortable and modernly designed.
