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.

Great location in Kihei
Stayed for 3 weeks with family. It was great having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms so everyone had their own private space. Beautiful grounds at Maui Vista, easy parking and easy walk to restaurants, shops, surf lessons within blocks and the best beaches right across the street. Well equiped condo, lovely decor. TV in bedrooms and Netflix a bonus. Very positive interactions with the owners who always answered our questions prompltly. Would recommend this condo to friends.
We loved it.
We really enjoyed our condo in Kihei. Great location to walk to beach, coffee shops and local restaurants. Easy access to do day trips to all the tourist locations. Would definitely come back.
Mahalo for your review! We are pleased that you loved your Maui vacation and that our condo provided a location for you all to enjoy Kihei and Maui! We look forward to you coming back, soon. Mahalo, Alan and Laurie
All the comforts of home in paradise!
We had the most wonderful family vacation in this amazing condo. So comfortable and so well equipped for all our needs!
We cooked nearly all our meals and the kitchen had everything from a waffle iron to a hand mixer and a coffee grinder. It was so nice not to worry about having enough plates, glasses and cutlery as well as pots and containers for left overs.
We made good use of the beach equipment - chairs, and sand castle building gear!
With two little toddlers the portable crib, baby seat and toddler extras were much appreciated!!
The condo itself was comfortable and cozy. With the overhead fans, we didn't need to use the air conditioning. The location - across the street from our favorite beach was another plus.
It is in walking distance from any where in the main Kehei area.
Laurie was most approachable and accommodating.
Guess this must be a 5 star plus!
Mahalo for the 4 star review. We are so happy that you and your whole family were comfortable in our home and made use of all the amenities. We have made every effort to provide all the conveniences of home away from home! We hope you will come back again!
A convenient, comfortable, and charming condo with the added bonus of feral lovebirds out the lanai!
We had such a lovely stay. The condo was perfect for our family. Right across from Charlie Young Beach, which is perfect for small kids, and a short walk in either direction for basic groceries (Foodland) or organic produce (Hawaiian Moons). We saw turtles several times down at Charlie Young Beach, and when we snorkelled at Ulua Beach my husband spotted an octopus! The Lovebirds out the lanai were a major bonus for us, and provided endless entertainment as they played in the tree and on the roof. The condo had everything we could need, including sand toys, a float jacket for my toddler, and a wide range of kitchen things (hurray for waffle irons!).
Thanks to our hosts for a lovely vacation!
Perfect Island Paradise Vacation
This place was perfect. We were 2 adults with an 18, 16 & 9 year old. The upstairs was completely boy town. Tons of room and space and bedding for 3 boys plus a full bathroom upstairs so they did not have to take up our bathroom space. Beds were all comfy. Linens more than adequate. Kitchen had absolutely everything we needed in it to cook/BBQ any meal we wanted. All the little added touches made this unit feel like a home for us. Walking distance to the beach, grocery store, cafes, and shopping. Complex is very quiet with no noise disturbances whatsoever during our stay. People were all friendly that we encountered in the BBQ/patio area. Info binder in condo to help plan activities etc. We are Canadian so did find it quite warm the first day that we arrived so did rely on the air conditioner but after a couple of days the condo was very comfortable temperature wise as we had acclimatized to the warmer than we are used to temperatures so we found the numerous fans in the unit more than adequate. Washer and dryer in the kitchen are super convenient as one can visit in front room, start preparing supper and do laundry all at the same time. The other family that we travelled with lucked out as well and rented a condo only 2 doors down. We could not have asked for more perfect accommodation arrangements. Laurie & Alan were super accommodating and fantastic to deal with. We did an amazing snorkel tour with a small company (Maui Snorkel Tours) while in Maui and just received fabulous pictures in my email from Ed, the owner/guide, with all the turtles and fish life that we saw making us want to return to island paradise. We are definitely saving this condo for hopefully some future visits and have recommended it to anyone we know looking at going to Maui.
It's not everyday that you get to review your own condo!
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
