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 Kihei

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 place and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The condo was walking distance from the beach! That beach was great for our little ones and also for snorkeling. We saw lots of sea turtles there! We were also very pleased with the cleanliness of the condo. They have lots of beach supplies including: towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, beach toys, cooler and even some snorkeling equipment!

Fantastic view and wonderful amenities

  • 4 of 5

The location and facilities of Maui Vista can't be beat. Maui Vista's property is well maintained, the pool was always clean, the outdoor grills spotless, and there were always people tending to the grounds. Our unit was comfortably furnished and had everything we needed, including boogie boards, beach towels, and chairs. We even had a cooler. This particular unit could have been cleaned better prior to our coming and the knives were so dull they were pretty much useless, but these things were not a major concern for us. The biggest problem we had was on our last day. We had an late evening flight with an 11 am check-out, and there was no place available to store our luggage; so, this pretty much prevented us from fully enjoying our last day on the island.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you for your review and feedback. I am so pleased that the condo provided you the location and the amenities to make your Maui vacation a memorable experience! I will be sure to have the knives sharpened or replaced as needed. I have passed on to my cleaner your comment that the condo could have been cleaner prior to your arrival. I do accommodate late check out requests when possible, however I had another guest checking in the same day as your departure, so I am sorry I was not able to extend to you that courtesy. I hope you will be able to return to Maui soon!! George .

Great Condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Maui Vista! The condo was a short walk to the beach and in a great central Kihei location which made enjoyment of the island easy. The condo was comfortable and clean with access to great amenities in the complex. All the beach supplies which were provided with the condo really helped us enjoy our holiday on the island.

We felt very welcome and I would be more than happy to stay at the condo again.

Nice condo, Great location

  • 4 of 5

George's condo has a nice view of the ocean. So relaxing to sit on the veranda and have coffee in the am. The condo is located close (5 min walk) to one of the nicest beaches in the area - Charlie Young Beach. It was great to have beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and a cooler available for use.

George provided helpful recommendations and was very accommodating.

The condo is a bit older and the beds quite soft but still ok. There were many tiny ants in kitchen and bathroom.

We enjoyed our stay in Maui.

Thanks George!

Maui Vista Review

  • 4 of 5

HI George,

We did enjoy our stay. Thank you. Just a point of awareness. There were tiny ants in the kitchen and downstairs bathroom. Also, it would be very handy to have more than one key for the pool. As I was there with my children, at times it was challenging as we went to different pools but had only one key.

Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Aloha, and thank you for your review. I've called an exterminator about the ants, and will have a second pool key made. I hope you will be able to come to Maui again soon!! George
