About the property

Directly across the street from beautiful Kamaole Beach I. Relax on the lanai (patio) and feel the cool island breezes as you gaze over the turquoise water to the islands of Molokini and Kahoolawe. Enjoy one of our 3 pools, 6 tennis courts, 4 outdoor gas barbecues, or claim your own section of beach to relax, swim, snorkel, read a good book, and soak up the sun and views. We provide beach chairs, boogy boards, umbrellas, towels and a cooler; everything you need for a fun day at the beach. Just a short stroll up the beach will take you to Charley Young Cove where you can take surfing lessons or rent surfboards, paddleboards, or kayaks. Enjoy world class snorkeling and diving at local places like Ulua Beach, Five Graves, and Turtle Town. At the nearby Kihei boat ramp you can hop on a boat for exciting snorkel or SCUBA trips, sightseeing, or whale watch cruises (December – March). Take the short drive to Wailea where you will find some of Maui's best golf courses, shopping, and great nightlife. No need to eat out every night, as local markets offer fresh island fish and local produce for some of the best home cooked meals you will ever eat. If you do feel like going out to eat, you will not have to go far to find dining ranging from 5 star restaurants to fast food.

You will appreciate all of the amenities you would have at home including a full kitchen, washer and dryer, TV, DVD, internet, wifi and telephone with free calls to the mainland US and Canada. The master bedroom has a queen bed, the loft bedroom has 2 twin beds, and there is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room area to comfortably accommodate 6 guest.

We know you will enjoy staying at our hale (home) and will come back again and again.

Aloha Nui Loa from our family to yours.

Why George Bement chose South Maui

George lived in Kihei for 8 years, in a house immediately mauka (toward the mountain) of Maui Vista. He and his family used to walk through the parking lot of Maui Vista to get to their favorite beach, Kamaole I, known also to the locals as Charley Young Beach. After having spent a considerable amount of time on the island and visiting the numerous beautiful beaches Maui has to offer, George considers Kamaole I to be the best.

What makes this condo unique

Maui Vista has everything a visitor to Maui could want. Great ocean and sunset views, short walks to incredible beaches, and close proximity to shops and restaurants leaves one with nothing more to desire in a vacation destination.

Great vacation spent in Maui Vista with a fantastic view.

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from another fantastic vacation on Maui. This condo was great for what we needed. It was well stocked from kitchen items to everything you could need for a day at the beach (chairs, mats, umbrellas, snorkel gear, etc.) It could not be in a better location! Very easy to walk and pick up items from ABC, restaurants and my favourite food truck. It truly does have the best view in the complex! Enjoyed my morning coffee looking out at the ocean. Also, a very quiet, well maintained complex.

George was very accommodating, responsive to emails, and provided a great information package for the area. The only reason I am giving this a 4 instead of a 5 star rating is although the towels were clean they smelled very musty and need to be replaced. Nothing major and I wouldn't hesitate to rent this condo again, I just wanted to provide honest feedback. This was my first time using VRBO and overall it was a great experience.

It truly is a fantastic view! The owner could not have been nicer and communicated with us at every step of our reservation. There are beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, coolers - all provided for the guests. That means a lot when you are coming from a great distance. The location is perfect and you can walk to restaurants and parks. It was a memorable stay for us. Thank you George.
