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 location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 day stay. The condo is conveniently located directly across from the beach. Met the owner who is friendly and accommodating. He supplied us with helpful information about the area, activities and restaurants. Condo is supplied with plenty of beach gear including chairs, umbrellas, towels, boogie boards and a cooler. There were 5 of us (2 adults and 3 older kids) and we were comfortable in the condo. I would highly recommend and I would stay again.

Best view & location for Maui

  • 5 of 5

LOVE LOVE LOVE this condo. Exactly what we expected. We have stayed at Maui Vista 3 other times in different units, and this one has the Best View of the Ocean & the Pool. Tons of Beach supplies. Kitchen well stocked. Love coming back to the pool after day at the beach. Pool is small, but there was hardly every anyone there. Guess they are all across the street at the Charley Young Beach, which is a very short walk. Or down the road south at any of the other great beaches, which are not crowded like the fancy resorts up north. We like the relaxed Local atmosphere of Kihei. Tons of great restaurants nearby Maui Taco, Coconuts, Stews Burgers, Fat Danny's, Da Kitchen. All reasonably priced. And don't forget Shave Ice, with ice cream on the bottom. George was great with communication and instructions. We will try and make it back very soon.

Best location in Maui! Great view, close to beaches, snorkeling, restaurants and shopping.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Maui and having George's place as home base made it all possible. On days we didn't want to travel, the pool or beach is right outside the door. We could walk to top rated restaurants or cook for ourselves in the well equipped kichen. Our boys appreciated having their own beds and bathroom in the loft, while my wife and I had complete privacy in the main bedroom. George is very responsive when we had questions, both prior and during our stay. Beach chairs, towels, and boogie boards are supplied, unexpected amenities that we were happy to have. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Maui!

Great location and comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

The location is fantastic - walking distance to a very nice beach. The condo was comfortable for our family of four and had everything we needed. The kids loved the loft with twin beds and their own bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped, and it was great to have a washer and dryer in the condo. It’s not super luxurious but it’s very homey and was just what we were looking for. We’d definitely stay here again!

5 STAR Property.

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding property. First and foremost, George Bement is a super person. He is really easy to communicate with and he quickly responds to any questions or issues. His condo is very comfortable and well kept. Everything you need is already in there. The air conditioners and fans keep the condo cool and comfortable. It is very convenient to have the washer and dryer in the condo. The beach accessories (chairs, umbrellas, boards and towels) are a great plus. The beds are comfortable and my boys really enjoyed sleeping in the mezzanine (upper level) with their own private bathroom. The condo has more than adequate living space and the lanai is a great place to relax and enjoy the view. The location is fantastic right across the street from Carlie Young Beach. It is also a few short miles to shopping and good restaurants. My family and I will definitely rent George's condo again when we come back to Maui.
