Linda and Larry live in the college town of Davis, California. Linda is Associate Director of the newly formed Feminist Research Institute at the University of California at Davis.. Larry is retired and takes care of our Davis garden and pool. (Larry loves Maui Vista because he can enjoy the tropical gardens and pool without taking care of them!) We love the beach and we enjoy running in the Maui Oceanfront 15k race in January. After renting other condos at Maui Vista for 4 years, we decided to purchase this beautiful condo in 2013. We love to travel and we found this condo to be one of the most comfortable, relaxing places we have stayed. We will do our best to make certain you enjoy your stay here.
Linda purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Linda chose Kihei
Location! Tropical Comfort! Amenities! This is a beautiful condo, freshly repainted throughout, fully equipped, with updated tropical decor, and new to the rental market. There are many reasons why you should seriously consider booking this unit. 1. It is located on the second floor in the highly desirable Building 3. This building is the quietest in the complex since it farthest from the traffic noise on South Kihei Road, yet is close enough to the ocean to enjoy cooling ocean breezes. 2. One of Maui's best beaches (Charley Young/Kamaole 1 beach) is just across the street within easy walking distance. (Google the live web cam for Charley Young Beach and make your friends envious when they see you enjoying the beach!) 3. This unit has a peaceful view of the beautifully landscaped tropical gardens of Maui Vista from the lanai and the living room/kitchen. New lanai furniture so you can Enjoy morning coffee on the lanai & listen to the birds. 4. Our photos are always updated. Last update was 8/24/2014 5. The unit is professionally cleaned and well-maintained by a local management company (Maui Condo and Home) who are always available to take care of our guest needs or emergencies. 6.We provide beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, body boards, and a cooler for your days on the beach. We also provide tools to use with the convenient outdoor gas grills on the property. 7. We respond quickly to inquiries and are very easy to work with. 8. The bedroom has a new bedroom set, a very comfortable bed and a ceiling fan. 9. The living room has a 40 inch LCD TV with cable, a cd player, I-touch dock, and DVD player. 10. Free, unlimited wireless internet and free long distance calling to anywhere in the US and Canada. 11. Overall, this is a GREAT value for the quiet tropical comfort and amenities we offer! 12. We have recently added a small printer for printing out your boarding passes and a wonderful leather recliner.
What makes this Condo unique
Enjoying ocean breezes and the tropical garden view from the Lanai of this condo is very relaxing. Linda especially loves early morning barefoot running on the beach across the street and we both love running uphill from the condo and/or along the oceanfront path in Wailea which give us running routes of 6 to 10 miles of tropical beauty! The condo is an easy walk or short drive to some great restaurants, shopping, and places along the ocean to enjoy Mai Tais and tapas at sunset!

We spent 3 weeks at this wonderful condo which had everything! It was quiet and close to our favorite beach. The owners were wonderful to work with, would most definitely stay here again.
Accommodation and contact with the owner = Perfect!
After booking this, we received a lot of helpful information from the owner (thank you Linda!). The apartment had everything that you could possibly want, for cooking, for going to the beach, for daytrips around Maui (maps, guide books, walking trail books, torches....just to mention a few things). Spotlessly clean. We stayed one week and could have happily stayed here much longer. Maui Vista is a beautifully maintained property. Nice and quiet, but near to beach, shops and restaurants. Easy parking.
Very clean condo and great location
Owner provided great communication throughout the time of booking. Condo well maintained and has everything you need for an enjoyable vacation in Maui. Definitely recommend.
everything you need is provided
Good communication with owner at every step of the process. The condo is in a great location in south Maui. Everything you need is provided by the owner and/or left behind by other guests. The kitchen is well-stocked.We were pleased to find a small cooler and ice packs to take a lunch to the beach. Snorkel equipment was also in the unit, (except the fins weren't usable) so that was a nice surprise. The low beach chairs will need to be replaced soon, but were perfectly usable, as was the umbrella, beach towels, etc. Everything was modern and in good condition. Comfy bed. We did a lot of tourist-y things all over the island and it was an easy drive to get everywhere, never more than an hour., but add extra time if traveling in rush hour (Well, the Hana trip was a full day with a great guide!) We enjoyed Charley Young beach directly across the street from the complex, but also enjoyed Kamoale III because we could set up our beach chairs on the grass under the shade trees overlooking the beach and then just go down the beach access ramp to get into the ocean to cool off. Overall, a great experience and the owners go the extra mile!
Thank you very much for your review. You do a great job of summarizing some of the different beach opportunities within easy walking (or in our case jogging) distance from the condo. Thank you also for the heads up about the beach chairs and the fins. We will be sure to replace them during our next visit in early 2018. We take that time to upgrade and replace worn items and always appreciate feedback from our guests. We are glad you made such good use of your time in Maui. We do provide guests with a list of things we like to do in Maui along with information about how to get more advice from an on island expert. We hope you will return again soon.
Very nice condo
I enjoyed my time at Linda's condo in October 2017, very well equipped and clean. good location with walking distance to the beach and groceries. short drive to Wailea.
check in was easy and instructions were clear.
Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay at our Maui Vista condo in Kihei and hope you will return again soon. You mention Wailea which "starts" about one mile from our condo. It is a lovely area, but is very expensive. Larry and I often run in Wailea. We also occasionally will drive to a music event at one of the golf courses or to happy hour on a beach in Wailea. However, we prefer to stay in Kihei because of its easy access to beaches, shopping, and many restaurants (all of which are easy walking distance from Maui Vista).
So comfortable and clean!!! Would for sure stay here again!!!
We loved staying at this condo!!! Great location and super clean and comfortable!!!
Thank you very much for your review. We hope to welcome you back again soon.
