About Alan & Laurie McCann

Aloha!

Alan and Laurie both grew up in California, and we LOVE the ocean & beaches. It had always been a dream of Alan's to retire in Hawaii. As an avid bicyclist, ocean swimmer, scuba diver, golfer, and outdoors man; Maui is perfect for him. Laurie enjoys reading under the palms, walking on the beach, snorkeling, open water aerobics, yoga and recently took up a life long passion to paint outdoors with other artists. Having our own piece of paradise that we call 'Home' is awesome! Sharing Maui with our family (5 grown kids and 2 grandchildren) as well as good friends has been some of our fondest memories! We hope that you will enjoy exploring Maui as much as we do and will want to keep coming back.

Laurie and Alan, (San Francisco Bay Area)

Alan & Laurie McCann purchased this condo in 2004

Why Alan & Laurie McCann chose Kihei

Kihei is still an Hawaiian beach town. We wanted it ALL- a safe neighborhood, walk to Maui's best beaches, diving and snorkeling, palm trees and nightly ocean sunsets. Maui Vista Resort is centrally located within walking distance to shops, dining, surf lessons, groceries, beach rentals, public transportation and more. You can choose to play on numerous local golf courses. Kihei is located minutes from Wailea (shopping and resorts). We wanted to own a condo that we could allow the teens to walk (on their own) to various locations, safe for little ones to play on the grounds, but quiet enough for total relaxation. Our condo is truly a retreat home away from home!

What makes this condo unique

Our Maui Vista condo is located in QUIET building 3 on the top 4th floor away from the main street. Two air conditioners, two king sized beds and more! Every morning you can look out at the ocean and watch the tropical birds in the palm trees (one almost within an arms reach!) or look out over beautiful Plumaria trees and tropical gardens. And, most of the year there is an unbelievable sunset visible from out Lanai. Three sets of Championship Tennis Courts and a barbecue/picnic area are just downstairs. One of the three Maui Vista's gated pools is located minutes from the door! Our gardens have beautiful tropical flowers and a variety of trees, grassy areas and paved walking trails to the main road and beach. While staying in the condo you will have all the conveniences of home.

Home away from Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, the Love Birds who visited us often ~ swaying in the Palm Trees. Everything you need for your holiday, is right there in home. Most of All, the Aloha Spirit which fills this home with comfort. A PERFECT place to spend the Gift of Time, make Memories, with the ones you Love! Mahalo Laurie & Allen xoxo

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

When we visit Maui we always stay in the Maui Vista. We like the location as Charley Young beach across the street is one our favourite places to hang out and with a 15min walk in either direction you have stores and restaurants. The complex is well kept with 3 BBQ areas, 3 small pools and lots of tennis courts. For our family it is a perfect fit and we have rented abut 10 different condos here over the years.

This property is one of the nicest we have stayed at as far as the interior layout and furnishing. The interior is decorated in fun fashion with lots of cool Hawaiian touches (I love the Hula lamp). It also had unique renovation to make the loft larger and enclosed it with shutters. Add in King Size beds, a day and fold out bed and you have lots of sleeping room. We just had 4 of us there, but it work easily for more people. You can tell the owners love their unit.

The upstairs shower is great for getting clean from the beach as it is a multi head unit and you can sit down in it. EVERYthing you need is in the condo including beach gear (we left an boogie board and rod to add to the gear), also the kitchen has everything including unexpected things like a blender, waffle maker, spices etc. Everything is labelled so you know where to find it or where to put it back. Like I say the condo is up there with the best units in the vista - if not the best unit. As it is in the third building it is very quit at night, but still a short stroll down to the beach.

As for the downsides, the list is short and minimal. As another reviewer pointed out the beach chairs are comically uncomfortable. We found them to be basically unusable. We rented some Tommy Bahama chairs for our stay. If we are were staying a bit longer we would have bought TB chairs and left them there as they are $29 at costco. Another potential downside is the bedrooms have TV's but I think you can only get netflix on them. This didn't effect us at all, but if you like to watch the news in bed you would be out of luck. The last downside is the most significant one for us. The view from the lanai is not as nice as many of the other 4 floor condo's in the Vista. You can see bits of Ocean but for the most part you will see buildings, parking lot and trees. If you compare this to the view to other units that overlook the pool you can see allot of Ocean and even watch whales. Still the lanai was quit and you could see the sunset.

The owners are great people, and I recommend this unit.

Owner's Response: We really appreciate guests like Jeff and his family staying in our condo home. Mahalo for the very nice review. We do love our Maui condo and try to think of 'everything' you might need for a comfortable time in Paradise! In June, two 'Tommy' backpack chairs were added to our 4 sand chairs! We recently added the wall mounted TV's and DVD's to the bedrooms. Unfortunately, we are unable to get Cable TV in the bedrooms, so the addition of the 'Smart' TV's or DVD players give additional viewing options. Regarding the view; we choose our condo because it DID NOT face due West (full ocean view). Thus avoiding the hot, direct afternoon sun beating on the lanai and living room window, like some of the other 4th floor MV condos, which results in a very warm condo in the evenings. The tree in the parking lot has grown quite tall and is obstructing some of our distant ocean view. However, we especially love to see the Spring and Summer sunsets from the lanai as well as the night lights of Ma'alea Bay and the West Maui Mountains. Mahalo and we look forward to you being guests at our condo again!

It's not everyday that you get to review your own condo!

  • 5 of 5

Alan and I were privileged to be able to spend a little over a month in our condo this trip. September/October is one of our favorite times of year on Maui.

Laurie- Most mornings I went down to Kamaole Beach Park I (in front of the Lifeguard tower) to swim with my friends; the "Maui Mermaids". Tuesday, Thursday and Sundays (8am) I went to Ocean front yoga with Johanna Waters at Kamaole Nalu. Doing yoga while watching the turtles play in the water is amazing and it the perfect way to start the day.

Alan- he enjoyed his daily 1/2 mile swim at Charley Young/Kamaole Beach Park I. He snorkeled at the north end of Charley Young beach with large groups of Sea Turtles (Honu) and fish. The water was wonderful this past month. Most afternoons he rode his 'beach' bike to Makena and back, and squeezing in a few games of golf. We visited several of our favorite local restaurants- Sansei, Nalus South Shore Grill, Nutcharee's Authentic Thai Food, Fabiani's Bakery and Pizzeria, Maui Pie, Tommy Bahama's & Maui Tacos. Two very unique places to visit are Home Maid- @ Azeka Shopping Center for fresh hot morning Malasadas (donuts), and the ABC Store @ Kamaole I for Prime Rib Dinner on Thursdays and Sundays, delicious!!

While in Maui we experienced some amazing sunsets of all colors and very warm weather.

So, what did we do the rest of the time.... We updated and deep cleaned the condo! We now have an additional air conditioner in the downstairs bedroom, we installed a 50 inch Smart flat screen TV in the living room and moved the beautiful 'entertainment' center into the downstairs bedroom (we call it 'The Queen's Closet'). The living room and the bedroom feel much more spacious! The new TV is very nice to watch (especially the Baseball Playoffs!).

We are glad to have been in the condo when the kitchen tile started to fail. We will have all new tile in the kitchen, bathroom, hall, pantry and utility storage closet by the end of this week!

We hope that our guests will enjoy the changes. It is our family's goal to provide an upscale, comfortable and clean condo for all of our guests at a reasonable price.

Much Aloha and please enjoy our home in Paradise!

Mahalo, Laurie and Alan McCann

Family condo good for six.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this condo. It was everything we were told it would be. There were six of us, two grandchildren ages 9 and 6, two parents and two grandparents. There was adequate sleeping accommodation and the kitchen was everything we could have asked for. Access to the beach was a five minute walk and the beach was perfect. Not having room in our luggage, we left a boogy board in the hall closet for future guests. Overall rating - great.
