Guestbook comments from the owner

I took my girlfriend and her daughter to spend her birthday in Maui.

Bruce's condo really was a true gem in making it very easy to enjoy: close to

the beach, all the amenities you need, the all around A-C units is a true

blessing as some days the trade winds were non existent and it was very warm.

We sat in the Lanai one evening watching the gorgeous sunset and had a

spectacular view. The reason why I chose this condo was Bruce's fast responses.

I knew that if anything were to go wrong, he would try to alleviate the

situation. There was a very minor problem with the AC remote control and I

placed a call to the property management. I didn't hear back for awhile and

emailed Bruce. Within minutes, he called me to fix it. We had a great time

and would not hesitate to stay again. The only downside was that we didn't

stay longer.

We absolutely loved our stay here. Great accommodation in a great location. We visited many many beaches during our week stay and Charlie Young Beach opposite the apartment was voted the favourite in our family. With four kids from 9-18 there was plenty to keep them happy. The beach chairs and snorkel equipment, etc that were there to use was a real bonus. A short 5 minute walk to restaurants and shops/markets meant we could go out for dinner or breakfast without having to take the car. Loved the view of the ocean from the balcony.Will we go back to Maui? Yes! Will we stay in this apartment? 100% yes

You have to stay here.

First time in Maui

Good location, near beaches. Interesting décor, very Hawaiian. Condo was clean and well equipped, except that we were unable to use coffee machine lid successfully! We very much enjoy our stay in Maui, the weather was superb.

Above and beyond!

  • 5 of 5

I seriously cannot even begin to use words that would describe how I feel about my experience with this condo. If I had to pick one, I guess I would have to settle on amazing. My family and I have been vacationing at Maui vista for many many years, and have rented multiple different units there. The amenities in the unit, and personal attention from the owner cannot be beat. Hands-down, the best rental experience at any Maui vista condo we have rented, and that says a lot. We have rented from Bruce a few years in a row now, and will NOT go back to The other units and the mediocre management. I recommend for anyone who wants a worry free vacation experience for themselves and family.

Kihei Paradise is Right!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to Maui made all the better by our stay in Bruce's lovely condo! The space is beautifully designed in lush tropical decor and very well equiped with everything we needed in the kitchen and for the beach. I saw whales from the balcony a couple of times! Our toddler loved the pool, the grounds are all well maintained and the location across the street from a great beach, and a short walk to shops and restaurants, was perfect. Bruce went out of his way to make sure we were having fun and had everything we needed. I hope to return to Maui someday, and will rent this place again. Mahalo!

Great condo, great service

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in the perfect spot! A very short walk (2 minutes at most) to one of the best beaches on the island, and shops and restaurants are just mere minutes away too! The condo itself is comfortable for 4 adults, with all the amenities of home. The ocean view from the lanai (balcony) is great. You do have to look over the houses across the street, but after a while you don't even notice them.... just the ocean. And we DID see whales from the lanai!! So have your camera ready!

Bruce was very easy to contact, and often responded to emails within minutes. We had an issue with a defective toaster, and it was replaced the same morning. Great service. Mahalo Bruce! I would certainly stay here again, and I would highly recommend it to any one who asked. Aloha!
