Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6), Oceanviews
You’re invited to stay in our Kihei Kai Vista, Unit 2406 at Maui Vista. Please, come, relax and enjoy. The ocean view from our 4th floor, building 2 unit we think is one of the best in the complex. Enjoy rainbows, whales, the morning song of tropical birds, the occasional gecko and of course, the magnificent sunsets while relaxing on our lanai.
In December 2012 we purchased our condo and came in January 2013 to add some personal touches, with more to come on future trips. We’ve put a Cal. King bedroom set in the master bedroom and for the flexibility of our guests, XL twin beds that can be converted to a King in the loft. The upstairs bathroom has been expanded with a larger walk-in shower and private lavatory. There are new granite counter tops throughout the unit along with a full complement of kitchen accessories and appliances. Beach chairs, towels, an umbrella and cooler are there for your use. After a long day at the beach or sightseeing, we have provided new flat screen TV’s in the living room and master bedroom along with cable, a DVR and a variety of movies, as well as complimentary WiFi, local and long distance phone to the Mainland U.S. and Canada.
Over the years we’ve stayed at a variety of places in Maui, but feel that Maui Vista had the most to offer. The complex is right across the street from famous Charley Young Beach, within walking distance of several other beaches that run along the Kihei coast as well as many shops, restaurants and a grocery store. Maui Vista is an over eight-acre property with well-maintained grounds with a variety of tropical vegetation, three swimming pools, six tennis courts, three gas barbeque grill stations and an onsite concierge who offers a orientation with continental breakfast every weekday morning.
We believe you won't be disappointed with awesome ocean view, the centralized location near the beach, many restaurants and shopping opportunities, the well-appointed accommodations at a reasonable price all with easy access to the wide-variety of activities available on Maui.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Owner chose Kihei
We've been hooked on Maui ever since our first visit. Over the years, we stayed several places, but kept coming back to Maui Vista for its great centralized location to the beach, restaurants and shopping.
What makes this Condo unique
We love the ocean view, especially during whale season! It is in the second building of the complex...away from the street noise, but still an easy walk to the beach. It has been updated with an expanded second bathroom. Our unit was new to the rental pool when purchased it.

The accommodations were good,lovely view,especially each evening for the sunset,situated close to all amenities.
Very Well Appointed and Convenient to Everything in Kihei
This condo had everything we could ever want - Beach chairs, bags, blankets, kitchenware, dishes, plenty of pillows, blankets, etc. We didn't have to buy a thing to enjoy our stay. Maui was going through a bit of a heat wave when we were there, however, and the single A/C unit worked hard to try and keep up. Thankfully, once the sun went down things cooled off. Plenty of ceiling fans and tower fans helped keep things tolerable. Immediate responses from the owners when we contacted them. The front desk was helpful, as well. We'd stay there again. :D
Great condo, great location, even better owners!
My family just returned from 11 days in Kihei, where we met up with some other family. We had an absolutely great time in this condo! It was just perfect for our family of 4, and could definitely have accommodated a couple more by making use of the pull out couch had we needed it. The location is excellent, right in the heart of Kihei, central to everything that it has to offer. And the Charley Young beach right across the street was awesome. We took advantage of the provided beach amenities (chairs, umbrellas, snorkel sets, etc) almost everyday.
While we were there, we did encounter a couple of slight issues, but Dave & Cindie, as well as their on-island property management company, were fabulous with their response. They went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of, which I appreciated more than I can say. Their level of customer service to us was more than we could have hoped for, and not commonly found in my experience.
We likely won't be making it back to the island for at least a couple years, but when we do, you can be sure we will most definitely look this place up first! We would come back in a heartbeat, and would highly recommend to anybody looking for a great place to call home for their time in paradise!
The Whittlesey family
Thank you so much for your positive comments. We are happy that we were able to share our home with you and to have an opportunity to make amends for the issues that occurred during your stay. We are also grateful to have a management team just a phone call away and ready to step up and show all of our guests aloha.
Looking forward to having you back again!
Nice place. Small, but convenient location
Very clean and well cared for. Plenty of beach amenities. Decent ocean view over the roofs of the condo in front - one of the better located units.
Was warm but tolerable to just leave windows open (June). Just a single window AC that couldn't really reach bedrooms, but managed well without it, as there was a nice breeze to keep airflow, and lots of ceiling fans really helped. Location was quite good in terms of things to walk to. We learned to surf with Maui Wave Riders - highly recommended.
Perfect for our family of 4!
Our stay was wonderful. The place felt just like home. The sunset view from the balcony was breathtaking. The kids loved the loft because they had their own beds, own bathroom, and it was very convenient for all of us. The location was perfect for the activities we did (restaurants, shopping, snorkeling at Molokini, etc.). We're already planning to come back, and hopefully we can stay here again.
So pleased that you enjoyed staying in our condo. You are welcome back anytime!
Lovely quiet condo near the oceam
This condo was clean and pleasant. The upstairs loft was quite warm without AC, but there were just two of us so the downstairs worked well. The ocean view is distant but pretty. The condo association enforces quiet hours at night which we greatly appreciated. Also, the complimentary Concierage orientation was very helpful--- not at all a pushy sales pitch. The area has lots of shops and restaurants and is a short walk from several lovely beaches.
Located in the heart of Kihei, Maui Vista provides easy access to all activities on Maui. Whether you enjoy walking or driving you will find a wide variety of things to do and places to go in a very short amount of time. Restaurants, shopping, even a grocery store and other convenience/sundry stores as well as many beach activities are all within a few blocks of the complex. By car, your options are endless. You can literally shop 'til you drop and there are endless choices for ono grinds (good food). From locally owned to Mainland chains, Maui has it all. Our local favorites are Blue Moon Café in the Kihei Gateway Center for breakfast, Eskimo Candy just off of Halekuai St. for great fish and chips, Peggy's Sue in the Azeka Place II for delicious hamburgers and malts or shakes, Moose McGillycuddy's for nightly specials including Taco Tuesdays and Mulligan's on the Blue in Wailea for great Irish fare and music. Maui's beaches are all public accessible from which you can choose to 'catch some rays or catch the waves', by basking on the warm white sand, snorkeling, boogie boards, paddle board, surf, windsurf, or kite surf. There are over a dozen golf courses on Maui and club rental is available. For a taste of the Hawaiian culture, be sure to take in a luau or see the theatrical production of 'Ulalena. Also, be sure to check out free Whaling Museum at Whalers Village in Ka'anapali. For adventure, sign up for sunrise from the top of Haleakala, then bicycle down the volcano. Of course, everyone should experience the Drive to Hana, visit the Maui Tropical Planation and 'Iao Needle and there are several reputable companies offering snorkel and whale watching (in season) cruises. Our favorite is Kai Kanani from Makena Beach Resort. Remember, Maui Vista offers a free on-site concierge (not a timeshare) to help plan all of your Maui activities. There's much to do if you choose or one can always just relax and enjoy putting your toes in the sand with drink in hand, just across the street at Charley Young Beach.
