About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

Condo, 1 Bedroom with Queen bed + Queen sofa bed + twin murphy bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

You'll feel the luxury, love and detail we put into our condo when you first open the door. If you want to pamper yourself while in Maui -- you'll love our unit. Too many little extras to list here.

Our one bedroom, one bath, end unit located on the 2nd floor of building 2 in Maui Vista Resort was renovated from top-to-bottom in October 2011. New ceilings, new paint, new tile flooring throughout, new en suite washer and dryer, new soft close Cherry wood kitchen cabinets, and granite counter tops.

We have tried to think of everything that you'll need in order to feel at home and have the best vacation while in Maui. The condo is equipped with a full size refrigerator with an ice and water dispenser in the door, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, plenty of cooking utensils, ice cooler, beach chairs, boogie boards for your use during your stay, tennis rackets, a coffee maker, Kerig machine and a hair dryer (so you don't have to pack one). In the event you have a little one, we have a playpen/crib and counter seat for your use.

The unit will accommodate 2-3 guests comfortably, with a queen size bed fitted with an Island Dreams Waialea luxury mattress, a queen size sofa/sleeper and a twin size Murphy bed. Also included are flat screen televisions in both the living area and bedroom with cable TV and DVD players, telephone service (local and long distance to the US & Canada), internet access (Wi-Fi or ethernet connections) at no additional cost. Air conditioning units and ceiling fans are included in both the main living area and bedroom for your comfort.

Just a 1-2 minute walk across the street to the beach. The resort is located across the street from the famous Kamaole Beach I (locally known as Charley Young Beach). There are three swimming pools on the property, six individually enclosed tennis courts (two per building), and gas-fired grills for each building. You will find that our unit is conveniently located to the building's pool (a view from the lanai), 2 tennis courts, and gas-fired grill. Elevators in each building so no stairs to navigate. Open parking is also available on site and free!

For golfers, courses like Wailea Golf Club, Makena and Ka'anapali make for plenty of world class golf on this island.

About Randal Sitton and Diane Grecco

We live in the State of Washington on the Westside. We have both worked in the public sector and appreciate a good value but are pretty much retired now. Between us we have six children and three beautiful grandchildren. Our children have left the roost and half are college students (here and elsewhere). Our family is our greatest gift and sense of pride. We spend most weekends with our children in the area and our young grandchildren, Lola, Sheldon, and Penelope.

Randal Sitton and Diane Grecco purchased this condo in 2011

Why Randal Sitton and Diane Grecco chose Kihei

We started traveling to Hawaii in 2004. We have been to all the islands, and when we married in 2005, we married in Poipu, Kauai. We then cruised the islands for our honeymoon (including Maui). We continued to return to Hawaii and Maui for family vacations and special occasions. Maui is one of our favorite islands. We decided to purchased a condo in Maui because we hope that one day it will be our retirement haven. We really love Maui and the relaxing pace, as well as, the lovely beaches and activities. So when we were trying to decide where we'd like to purchase a condo -- the decision wasn't that hard.

What makes this condo unique

We had a few things we wanted in our condo, and we weren't willing to compromise. We wanted to be in Kihei, where the weather is absolutely gorgeous year round. We wanted the complex to have elevators so people with disabilities or limitations could enjoy our home without restriction or inconvenience. We wanted the property to have a tropical resort feel. We wanted to be nearby one of our favorite beaches, Charley Young, and Kam II as well. Maui Vista Resort was the perfect fit for us.

In Maui Vista Resort, we found everything we wanted and then some. We are just a 1-2 minute walk from the beach, the tropical grounds with the lush vegetation are maintained to the highest level, parking is a breeze, the location is central to everything, and yes, we have an en suite washer/dryer (not something available in many complexes).

It was not our original plan to offer our condo as a vacation rental but we wanted to share what we had with others. In doing this, it has been a lot of work but definately a labor of love. Hearing how much our guests have enjoyed our condo and recognizing our 'attention to detail' has been most gratifying.

This was the perfect place to stay! Great location, with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the condo, we immediately felt like we were at home away from home. It had a nice, homey feel, complete with many movies to watch and games to play. The kitchen appliances and laundry amenities were awesomely helpful, and the fun beach and tennis stuff provided were extra exciting and added so much to our overall trip! Our only complaint would be the air conditioning unit in the bedroom was noisy and sometimes made it hard to fall asleep. However, we were very grateful to have air conditioning at all! Overall, would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay. It was close to most everything we wanted to experience (restaurants, beautiful beaches, surfing and snorkeling, etc). We would love to stay here again! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Our 2nd stay was just as amazing as the 1st!

  • 5 of 5

The condo felt just like home and the location was perfect! The condo is tucked away in a very quiet relaxing part of the complex and extremely close to the beach. We did not have to worry about parking, which was really nice, and we were able to walk to nearby stores and restaurants in a matter of minutes.

You will not be disappointed with this property!

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 2 weeks in November and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is well located, quiet and equipped with high quality kitchen, table ware and appliances. Pride in ownership is evident throughout. The property is across the beach from the best beaches in Maui - great for beaching or morning and sunset walks. Lots of excellent restaurants within walking distance along with a large grocery store a few blocks away. Randy and Diane were prompt and easy to work with and we highly recommend this property.

The condo is beautifully and perfectly appointed. The location is simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Maui Vista Escape was magical! Not one detail is overlooked. Diane and Randy should author a book on how to be the perfect hosts! The information provided both prior and during our stay has been so helpful and greatly appreciated. We have fallen in love with Maui and have been able to explore the island with the perfect home base. We witnessed the most extraordinary sunsets just across the street at the Charlie Young Park beach each evening. We have snorkled almost daily with memorable sightings! The entire staff at the Maui Vista Property are committed to excellence. Clean, quiet, safe and so convenient, there is not a thing I would or could say that requires enhancement. We are hopeful to return again some day! With heartfelt gratitude always.

Kihei's central location makes it easy to get to other parts of the island and Kihei is known to be one of the hottest places to stay on Maui (temperature-wise) because it doesn't get the breezes that other parts of the island get (perfect for that winter getaway). During the winter months, whales can sometimes be spotted from the shore.

Kihei is a sprawly place, strung out along the coast for several miles but never more than a mile wide. The main road north-south along the ocean is South Kihei Road and it contains almost all the hotels, condos, restaurants, shops and beaches. So if you don't mind a bit of walking, you can probably get to most things you need without needing a car. If you do drive, the strip malls have their usual adequate free parking although individual restaurants and beaches may not.

Most of Kihei's restaurants and grocery stores are strung out along South Kihei Road (the main drag). There are both supermarkets and smaller food shops along South Kihei Road. Some of the supermarkets can also serve as a restaurant as they sell warm cooked food that is cheaper (and sometimes tastier) than what you find in restaurants. With your own kitchen and the BBQ grill outside your door -- you can enjoy home cooking.

Maui Vista Resort is an affordable vacation condo resort located in Kihei. A beautiful 10-acre resort, lush gardens, well-maintained property with 3 buildings, 3 pools, 6 tennis courts, BBQ & picnic areas. We are located in the 2nd building, 2nd floor, near the pool, tennis court, and outdoor grill. Kamaole I Beach is across the street (a short 2-3 minute walk). Kam I (also known as Charley Young)is known as the best swimming beach, crystal clear water & gentle waves. Outside showers are also provided at Kam I. The condo itself is fully equipped including washer/dryer, TVs/DVDs & air-conditioners.

Lots to do: Go sailing, Kai Kanani Sailing Charters, 34 Wailea Gateway Pl Ste A105, 808-879-7218. Go snorkeling. There is some nice coral around Kamaole Beach Park III or take one of the snorkel cruises that depart from the Kihei Boat Ramp. You can rent or buy snorkel gear a local shops like Snorkel Bob's and Maui Dive Shop but we also provide some snorkel gear in our condo. Go swimming at one of the many beaches. The trio of Kamaole Beaches - Kamaole Beach Park I, II and Iil - are probably the nicest of the Kihei beaches. They each have their own changing rooms although parking is limited if you bring a car. When in Hawaii, a luau is always a nice excursion which features Polynesian music and dancing. Several resorts host them on various nights of the week. Most also feature a buffet dinner.

Visit Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, this is a good place observe Hawaii's endangered wetland birds, along with a diversity of feathered visitors from as far away as Alaska and Canada, and occasionally from Asia. Best season to visit is the winter. Best time of day is in the morning. Of course, a walk along the beach, morning, noon, at sunset, or at night, is always relaxing and beautiful. For those early birds, don't forget to catch the sunrise from the top of Haleakala. Maui isn't a large island, so you can go anywhere from Kihei as a day trip.

Nearby, heading south on the Pi'ilani Highway, is the resort community of Wailea and the beautiful beaches of Makena. Further south, with snorkeling and hiking opportunities, is Ahihi Reserve and La Perouse Bay.

Heading out of town on North Kihei Road will provide access to the old whaling town of Lahaina and the resort areas of West Maui.

Heading north on the Mokulele Highway will bring you into the central part of the island, where you can hike or catch the sunrise (or sunset) in Haleakala National Park, drive the Road to Hana, hit the beaches on Maui's north shore or head upcountry and visit Maui's only winery.
