About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Charming ground floor unit at the Maui Vista, a very clean and well groomed condo complex in central Kihei. Newly remodeled with upgraded furnishings. Large lanai faces the pool and is literally steps to Charley Young beach. Very central location, can walk to grocery stores, bars/pubs, restaurants, beaches, parks but is located in a quiet neighborhood. You do not need to rent a car to enjoy this condo. Unit has two A/C, one in the bedroom one in living room which isn't common in other Maui Vista condos (most have only one in the living room). The A/C units are both new and the bedroom unit is quiet. The new queen bed is spacious and comfortable.

Please ask us about our monthly rates.

About Val & Dianne Smyth

We have been coming to Maui for about 20 years and staying at a friends condo in the Kihei area. A few years ago we decided to get our own unit.

Val & Dianne Smyth purchased this condo in 2014

Why Val & Dianne Smyth chose Kihei

Having spent all those years in Maui and seeing all of Maui we felt most comfortable with what Kihei has to offer. We looked at all the major condo complexes in Kihei. Maui Vista offered an affordable, central and close to beach location that fit our needs.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I stayed at this condo for our trip. It was a wonderful place, that was clean, had all of the amenities advertised (including beach chairs and boogie boards), and was well located on Maui both for hanging out at the beach (only one block away) and also exploring other areas such as Hana and Haleakala. I would very strongly recommend this property to anyone, and would stay there again if we plan a trip to Maui.

Perfect place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased to see that the condo was what you might expect if this were your own home. If staying in, you had access to basic cable and a Blu ray player. Catch up on red box offerings after dinner or on a rare rainy day. Wifi was great. AC was noisy, but use the natural cross flow of air to keep the condo comfortable. Traffic noise from South Kihei rd can be a nuisance (weekends), but the bedroom faces the rear of the complex and is nearly imperceptible. The bed was good - firm but not stiff. Massive fridge and dishwasher was a plus. The one things that stood out was that this was a ground floor unit - huge plus. if something was forgotten - change of clothing or sunglasses. Coming and going could be a chore if on the upper floors of the buildings. .

Maui Vista amenities were ok. Popularity and limited hours for the BBQ (plan accordingly). A smallish pool fills up quickly. Tennis courts were good. The site itself has some beautiful landscaping and monkey pod trees - take a walk.

When going out, beach access is walking minutes away to Charley Young and Kamaole I for sand, surf, and sunsets. Amenities for various dining is walking minutes away. The condo is further away (walking) from Foodland and Longs, should you need groceries or pharma. However, if you are looking for a healthy start, Hawaiian Moons Natural Foods is close by. Try their Deli and juice bar. Kihei is not necessarily walking friendly, but if you didn't rent a car, this is the place I might choose. If you rent a car, it's a great base to plan your daily adventures on the island.

Great overall

  • 5 of 5

Clean, great size, all the kitchen supplies you could need. Owners were lovely to deal with. Right across from the beach, lots of parking, central location and easy access without having to carry around a key. Bed is uncomfortable which made it hard to sleep, but that was the only issue. Otherwise a lovely and perfect stay.
