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 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!

Thumbs up!!! Great accommodations and happy we chose this condo!

  • 5 of 5

I recently got married and my husband and I decided to spend our honey moon in Maui and stayed two glorious weeks in the lovely condo owned by George Bement. Because this was our honeymoon, our goal was to relax, spend quality time with each other, and to see the beautiful sights of Maui. It was an easy drive to get to the condo from the airport. The condo was perfect and met all of our goals. The process in terms of check in was very easy and organized. The condo was well equipped with everything you need to include plenty​ of kitchen items, to coolers, boogie boards umbrella's, extra beddings etc. The grounds are well kept and very peaceful. George took the time to put a folder together with a listing of great advice in terms of recommended restaurants, excursions, beaches, grocery shopping, etc. I enjoyed going to yoga a few mornings ( only $10.00 for one hour with a great instructor with a view of the beach) which was just a couple of blocks away (in walking distance). The beach which you can see from the Lanai is also in walking distance ( in front of condo) and took seconds to drive. We had a beautiful view from the Lanai and enjoyed a couple of our homemade dinners and breakfast

There were also a couple of restaurants as well which we enjoyed ie. Cafe O lait. My fiance and I highly recommend George's condo if you are looking to escape from the hustle bustle of life, to relax and rejuvinate. I slept like a baby, was so happy to see some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen, and spend some much needed quality time with my husband. We we're so busy planning for the wedding and a bit stressed but our vacation along with the great accommodations helped us to decompress and was perfect for our honeymoon. We plan to come back soon! Thank you so much George.

Excellent Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Maui Vista condos several times in the past, and this was by far the best unit we've rented thus far! The view is spectacular, the location is central, and the accommodations in the condo are superior. We would most definitely stay at this location again in the future.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Would stay again!! Thank you for a wonderful stay. We would recommend this condo! Fully stocked with everything we needed. The beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas and cooler made beach trips fun and easy. The view from the Lanai was just beautiful. Charlie Young Beach was such a short walk and easily became our favorite place to spend our evenings. My husband and I took our four kids. Two slept upstairs in the second bedroom and two slept comfortably on the pull out sofa bed. The complex was clean and secure. The area had plenty of stores and restaurants within walking distance. The only suggestions I would make would be to add a bit more silverware for larger families. I would also echo someone else's review of the Master bed. We stayed 13 nights. The Master bed is a little hard for my taste. Maybe just a thin mattress cover that had a bit of cushion would help. Thank you, George, for opening your home. We had such a magical time.
