Laurie Walz purchased this Condo in 2018
Why Laurie Walz chose Kihei
We stayed at Maui Vista while we were in Maui and felt very comfortable with the accommodations and were impressed by how beautiful and well-kept the grounds were. The fact that it is just steps from such a beautiful beach is also a plus!
What makes this Condo unique
When we walked into the condo to take a look at it for the first time, we were impressed by how cool it felt compared to others. There was a nice breeze flowing through the windows, which made it comfortable even when the air conditioner was not on. We loved the way the condo was furnished, and loved the way it had recently been remodeled. It had that great balance of feeling like home but was tropical enough to also feel like we were on vacation.

Perfect place next to Charlie Young beach
Really lovely condo in building 3 of Maui Vista condos. Perfect for our family of four. Great assortment of pots and pans. All the beach accessories needed and lovely patio with beautiful view of ocean. Pool is sweet and great for our two boys. Very easy walk about one block ish (just across street to beat beach in my opinion in Kihei) Charlie Young beach. Will definitely be back and would be great fun to stay here again. Comfortable beds as well, we all slept well!
A Perfect Location!
Our stay here was SO great! It's an older condo, but kept up really well, cozy, grounds are beautifully maintained, right across the street from the beach, and they supply you with towels, snorkel gear, boogie boards AND a surfboard, as well as other pool toys and water 'stuff'. There's even a peek-a-boo view of the ocean from the balcony!
The location is truly amazing, as you are within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, markets, and more.
Be sure to have some fish tacos at Fred's, and go check out what's called "the triangle" area...shops, pubs, restaurants, etc.
Such a cool area!
I had a few emails with the property manager, Laurie, before our vacation and she was so pleasant and very quick to respond to my questions. And super helpful!
Oh, and be sure to spend at least a day at the beach across the street...we were able to swim with a turtle there!
As I'm sure you can guess, we would stay there again anytime!
Just as Promised
We really enjoyed our stay on Maui and at the Maui Vista. The location was convenient and easy to find. We're already talking about our next trip and would definitely stay here again!
Enjoyed our stay. Easy access to property. Owners got back to me immediately with answers to any questions. TV service needs updating and place could be somewhat cleaner.
Just as advertised. Older condo but clean and comfortable. Kids (2) were comfortable on the pull out bed and it was really nice to have all the beach gear to use. Pool at the condo is small, but beach is about a 6 minute walk so that was not an issue for us. We explored a couple other beaches on the island, but found that this one right down the street was the best for families/kids who want to swim in the ocean.
Within walking distance there are many restaurants, touristy shopping areas, and of course gorgeous beaches. Further away we recommend using the Shaka Maui app, which you can download on your cell phone. This allows the user to purchase a audio tour of either the Road to Hana or the trip to the top of Haleakala. If you are planning to do the Road to Hana, leave early and make sure you bring a cell phone car charger. Take advantage of the short hikes to waterfalls, and plan on spending a couple hours at the end at the Seven Sacred Pools. Make sure to bring your swim suit and towel! Don't miss the lava tubes along the way.
We also recommend checking out the Lavender Farm, which you can go to on the way back from Haleakala. If you want to eat lunch there, be sure to call ahead for a reservation.
