Come and enjoy the Maui sun....and lifestyle. Stay in our cmpletely furnished 1 bedroom condo that is clean, comfortable and decorated Island style. The Maui Vista complex is surrounded by 10 acres of lush, tropical gardens.
Our Vacation Condo is located in South Kihei, across the street from Charlie Young/Kamaole I Beach, that is a gorgeous white sand beach. It's perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or just relaxing.
Our unit is quiet and private, one of the best in the Maui Vista complex. It's in the 2nd Building, so it's away from the traffic of Kihei Road, yet still very close to the beach. The ground floor unit is easily accesi...ble without having to use stairs/elevators. Because we are on the end unit, it is very private.

Last minute trip...unforgettable trip. The location is perfect. You are in walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. We had a relaxing getaway and did not want to leave. We will be back. Thanks so much for everything. Read more

Aloha Trisha, I'm so glad we could accommodate u and u enjoyed ur getaway. Come back soon. Happy New Year, Tricia
very nice fully stocked condo close to beach shopping and restur
condo had a completely stocked kitchen great location.every thing needed for beaches and pool.close to great resturants and shops.The complex is clean and quiet.Hope to go back again
This was our second stay at this condo in Kihei. Again, it was a perfect experience. The location is excellent, walking distance to restaurants and shops and across the street from Charlie Young beach.
The condo has everything you could possibly need from cork-screw to boogey boards. It is on a quiet corner but near one of the pools and the lanai looks out into the well-kept green gardens. We have made this an annual trip before fall classes start. Thank you Tricia and Ralph. See you next year!
We stayed Vista 2112 for 3 nights. The location is excellent in south Maui, close to good beaches and snorkeling sites. Good grocery store and restaurant nearby. Also it is not far from airport and Haleakala. This unit is on the first floor which helps us to commute to our car. The room condition is ok, considering the deal we got from Tricia. It also includes beach towels and snorkeling in case you forgot to bring your own. We didn't use the pool and tennis court and they look in good condition too. Overall enjoyed the stay and it beats the hotel which on average double the cost of this condo.
The sofa is ok for my sun to sleep. It would be nice to include roller bed.

Overall experience was awesome!
Condo was well furnished and had all necessary amenities. I would definitely recommend to friends and family. The only thing that surprised me was that the bed sheets were stained and was kind of a turn off, but other than that everything else was great! Read more

Hi Ulysses, so glad u enjoyed our condo. I recently hired a new cleaner, so I will have to let her know about the sheets, sorry about that. The good news is Ralph and I are MOVING TO MAUI in 3 weeks, and will live right down the street from our condo, so we will be able to keep a close eye on everything. Aloha Tricia
First of all, Tricia's communication and help was great and very appreciated. The unit was just want we needed a great base to relax in after a full day of sight seeing, snorkeling, and fun! The first thing I always check when I go into a place is the bed. Surprise - brand new bed! The location of this unit is perfect. You can walk to just about everything you need. Great little shops and affordable restaurants.
Great condo and great access made for a great experience!
This was our first trip to Maui and we loved the condo. We will most definitly return. It was great to be able to walk across the street for awesome snorkeling, paddleboarding and swimming. The ground floor, corner until had great ventilation so we didn't need the air conditioner. It also offered privacy and easy access coupled with all of the comforts of home. Read more

Return Visit (it was that good!)
We first stayed at this condo March of 2012, and we liked it so much, we stayed there, again, in 2013.
Great location, nice and quiet and well-maintained. Highly recommended!

Wow...best get-away vacation ever!
Perfect location for the two of us. Unfortunately, we arrived later than expected but security was at the entrance and assisted us on where to park. Beach accessories were at our fingertips in the condo with beach across the street. Compared to Lahaina and Kaanapali, if your looking for a less busy and congested location, this place is for you. Great place to relax and unwind. One week was way to short to explore and do all the things we wanted to. Would advise anyone traveling here to plan on staying at least 2 weeks. We do plan on returning to this very spot.
Our anniversary "quick" getaway
All in all it was a quick trip for our anniversary and it turned out to be one of the best. The condo was perfect siae location and Maui couldn't have been more perfect this time of year. I lived on Ohau for a short period when I was a teenager, and have never been to Maui. It is the best. The beach access was a short walk across the street and perfect for morning swims. Grocery stores and little knick knack stores also close for walking. Really couldn't ask for a nicer condo for privacy and quiet. Our anniversary was a hit and we'll be celebrating other improtant dates at Maui Vista. Thanks Tricia for all your help too.
Excellent place in an excellent place to visit. Mahalo!
This condo was an excellent choice for us. 1 Bdrm 1 Bath, nicely decorated with an Island feel. Everything we needed was there from bedding and towels to everything you could want in the kitchen. Books, snorkel gear and boogie boards, tennis equipment, wine glasses and a corkscrew and much more. It was very comfortable, inclusive and being an end unit with a nice lanai, it also felt secluded. The grounds are well cared for including 3 swimming pools and tennis courts. The location is ideal, right across the street from a great beach with soft sand and lots of space. Walking distance to some great shopping and a whole lot of restaurants (try the Tiki Lounge)as well as grocery store and service stations nearby. This was the ideal condo for my husband and I on a relaxing getaway. The only drawback being that our stay was too short.
A great condo in a great location
We really had a great time in this condo. It's in a great location... close to beaches, shopping and restaurants. We really enjoyed all the tennis available on courts that are in great shape. Tennis clinics are available many days and there are residents that run drop-in tennis that were happy to have us join them. There are really nice pools and the grounds were beautiful and were maintained. It was a very relaxing place to stay and very quiet. The interior could do with a little updating but all in all it was very good.
Well located with Charlie Young beach nearby.Pleasnt stroll to restaurants and shops.Private lanai.Kitchen appliances up-dated and very clean.Would like bed-room carpet switched out for the wood flooring that is in the rest of the condo. Read more
Response from Tricia Chiariello - 05/30/2012
U r so right about the carpet in the bedroom, we have it sked to be replaced after our mid-June guests checks out. Our high season was extremely busy this year, and we had no open time till now. The bamboo will be so nice in there!
Lisa and Curt
Great place to stay
The set up of this condo was perfect for us. Location was central to the island and all of the sightseeing/beach exploring we did. There is a grocery store within walking distance. The condo is on the first floor--can't get too much closer for move in and quick escapes to the beach! There are personal touches such as a cooler and cold pack for day trips, grocery bags, beach chairs, "floating tubes"--anything you need to make your vacation in paradise stress free. Great place to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary!
Perfect location, great amenities
We were so happy with this condo. Great location, easy parking, easy beach access, quiet. Close to the pool and tennis courts and we appreciated the beach accessories and tennis rackets/balls. Well-equipped kitchen. Overall I can't think of a thing we lacked.
Great Condo! Great Location!
We stayed for a week in this condo. We have stayed in several complexes in Maui over the years and this one may be our favorite. The complex is well kept, is quiet, has plenty of parking, and is in a great location in Kihei. And this condo was in the perfect location: tucked away in a corner on the main floor, close to the beach, the pool, close to everything! Grocery stores and restaurants are a short walk away. WiFi worked great and was greatly appreciated. So was the large lanai and comfortable patio set. The condo is well equipped and has a new washer/dryer. And there are great cross breezes to keep the place cool. We would definitely recommend it to others and hope to stay here again!
Beautiful, quiet, tastefully decorated condo
This condo is in a perfect location in a quiet corner. No traffic noise, no one walking by the lanai. Just a few feet away is the swimming pool. It's a short walk to the beach and shopping as well. The unit is bright, tastefully decorated and well equipped. Brand new washer and dryer! Loved staying there. Read more

Easy and enjoyable from start to finish.
This rental was an enjoyable experience from start to finish. The owner communicated clearly, and worked diligently to accommodate our early arrival. The condo was decorated in a subdued island theme, and the first-floor location invited us to sit on the lanai and take in the ocean breezes. Highly recommended! Read more
Response from Tricia Chiariello - 03/15/2012
I know this was ur first time staying with us, and glad to see u booked again for next year, Scott.
Nice and clean condo
We enjoyed our stay at Maui Vista, Kithen was well furnished will all essential items. The condo was clean.
Los Gatos, Ca
This condo is in an outstanding location-a bottom corner unit across the street from a world class beach and has convenient parking nearby. The beach is wonderful for swimming, paddle boarding, and boogie boarding. Kihei is a nice town with local flavor and excellent restaurants within walking distance. We enjoyed crossing the street each evening to watch unbelievably beautiful sunsets with Molokini, Kahoolawe, and Lanai in the background. Fabulous scuba diving nearby. The condo is basic but comes with starter products like soap and dish soap and having a washer and dryer is a great asset as well as the hose outside for rinsing off from the beach. The kitchen met our needs and we saved a considerable amount eating in part of the time. There is WiFi and cable TV there as well. Every morning we enjoyed playing tennis and did not have any trouble getting on a court. Checking in and out was simple. Enjoy your stay!

A Lovely Week
We enjoyed the condo very much. You can't beat Kihei's location and weather, and our group rented four condos on the bottom floor at Maui Vista so it was a great family vacation. Our condo was clean, well equipped (although it could use a decent, sharp knife) and nicely decorated. Since it is an end unit, it gets nice breezes and we didn't need to turn on the air conditioner. The downside of its location is you hear a lot of slamming car doors since it is close to the parking lot and smell cigarette smoke since the parking lot is where smoking is allowed but those were minor issues. Read more
Response from Tricia Chiariello - 01/06/2012
Glad u enjoyed ur family reunion. Last year the condo association banned smoking in all units, so to accomodate smokers, they did set up a remote area in the parking lot, we've never had any other guests bothered by that,sorry it disturbed u, aloha Tricia
So much more than we expected!!!
We never want a hotel again! We loved the full kitchen, washing machine and dryer right in our condo. all the recreational equipment was great to have available. Renting was efficient and easy.

Best location and value in Kihei
We loved our stay at Maui Vista! This condo has the best location in Kihei - just steps away from the pool, tennis and a great beach, and is strolling distance to shops and restaurants. The complex is beautifully landscaped and feels like an upscale resort; we also enjoyed meeting the friendly neighbor/owners. It was great having a washer/dryer in the unit and WiFi too - along with the beach and tennis gear. We will definitely be back! Mahalo Tricia for your helpful suggestions and letting us stay in our new Maui vacation home!
We really enjoyed our stay. Great Condo. Great Location. Would stay here again!
Golden, BC, Canada
Convenient, Good Value and all the amenities
We had a most enjoyable stay at Maui Vista in august 2011. It is comfortable, well organised and good value for the rate.
There are quite a few extras included which helped make things easier (towels, snorkels, tennis racquets).
The beach across the way is nice and you are well positioned to explore other parts of the island.
The accommodations are comfortable, clean and the location within the complex is more provate than others.
Our host was most helpful in organizing for both our arrival and departure which all helped to make it a great holiday for us.
Well appointed, very pleasant surroundings, fully equipped
When we arrived at Maui Vista, my wife and I were very impressed with the tropical splendour surrounding the complex. As we entered the condo we were equaly impressed with the brightness and cleanliness of the unit. Ralph and Patricia have done a wonderful job with the furnishings. The unit is bright and clean and fully equipped with everything you may need. I spent several pleasant afternoons reading on the private patio at the rear of the unit. We are going to miss Maui Vista and the Chiariello's condo in particular. Maui is one of our favourite vacation spots, and the Maui Vista, now one of our favourite vacation stops. Ed H.

Excellent Value in Kihei
If you're looking for value for your dollar, this is the condo for you. The photos and description given by Tricia are accurate. This clean condo is very conveniently located in terms of access to the pool, the onsite barbecues, the tennis court, the beach, shops, Foodland, and restaurants. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked with a full sized fridge, cookware, dishes, and utensils, and the combination of louvered windows and the two ceiling fans makes using the air conditioner unnecessary. Also, there are plenty of useful items for the beach: towels, beach chairs, mats, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, water noodles, and a small picnic cooler. There are also tennis rackets. Being in the corner unit is great since nobody needs to walk past your lanai - it's very private. Tricia was always quick to get back to us via email whenever we had questions, both before and during our stay.
Relax at Maui Vista Condo
This has been the 3rd time I stay at Maui Vista Condo. I keep returning to this place because you get value for your buck.You are very close to a nice beach across the street, and you have the ammenities of a condo, so if you don't feel like going out to eat you can make dinner with the cooking ware the condo provides. And if you have guests you can always pull out the sofa-bed.
Great place to vacation
This condo is exactly as described in the listing. It was clean, quiet, and close to everything (walking close)! Tricia was easy to deal with and very responsive to emails and phone calls. I highly recommend this rental!
Los Angeles, CA
Comfortable condo near excellent beach
Our family of 4 (2 boys aged 5 and 8 years) really enjoyed out stay in this condo. I liked Kihei because it had affordable and yummy restaurants and affordable stores nearby. The condo was comfortable with a lot of breezes from the Tradewinds. Right across the street is the best beach (in my opinion) in Kihei - Charley Young Beach. From the entrance to Maui Vista it takes 2 minutes to walk to. The beach is beautifully set with stunning views on all sides. The beach is sandy and roomy enough that it doesn't feel crowded. This condo is a ground floor unit so it was convenient to the car and so convenient to the building's pool. We really enjoyed the patio. Read more
Response from Tricia Chiariello - 08/02/2011
U are so right about the good tradewinds in our condo Charlien! We have never in 6 years used either of our A/C units, due to the fact we are a end unit, we get excellent cross-ventilation! Mahalo for the review!
The Condo was nice and tidy with all the equipment we needed to play tennis, go snorkeling or just lay on the beach. And the short distance to the beach was nice. Looking forward to coming back here!!
Return to Maui Vista 2112
We enjoyed our stay here so much last year that we choose the same condo for our vacation this year. Maui Vista is convenient to everything we wanted to do which was sit and read on the beach, take walks, and sit around and watch movies. We did not keep a car this year, only renting to travel between the condo and airport, stopping at Safeway to pickup groceries. The bus system is excellent so don't even need a car if you're going to stick around Kihei. Trisha has the condo equipped for a very comfortable stay. We'll return for our next Maui visit.
Wonderful Kihei condo experience
We spent 10 wonderful days in Kihei and this very comfortable condo "home away from home" served as our base. The location is excellent - convenient access to the best beaches that you would want to relax at, snorkel, etc. Restaurants and other shopping is convenient. The condo complex is inviting with amenities, including pool, barbecue, even a daily welcome and information sharing session for visitors. The patio area is private and relaxing. Thanks Tricia, we look forward to returning to Maui soon!
Best Vacation of our Lives
As parents of 5 we don't have much opportunity to vacation...without the kids...actually never have. We were nervous from the start...we wanted this to be perfect...and it was! We had the best time ever in Maui this year. From the beginning of the planning to the end everything was perfect. We rented a beautiful, convenient, reasonably priced condo from Tricia Chiariello, in Kihei directly across from Charley Young Beach via www.gonetomaui.com. Tricia made everything so simple from the start. We had everything we needed in the condo, cooking utensils, beach gear, linens, she even provided suntan lotion and shampoo! We were especially thrilled with the convenience of being able to walk across the street and see the sunset everynight, beachside - we didn't miss one! It was fabulous and we will no doubt go back to Maui again. I will definetly contact Tricia first!

Great Maui Vista Condo
Great first floor location,Centrally located,includes cooler, snorkels and flippers, beach chair. Very nice patio with table and chairs.
Great place if you plan to do diving in Maui
The Kihei small boat dock is 3 minutes away so for those early morning boat dives (5:45am!) this is a definite plus. The back porch has a hose to rise off your equipment plus the unit has a washer/dryer. Two boogie boards, beach chairs/umbrella, bamboo mats, cooler, and snorkle equipment were provided for days on the beach. One beach park is pretty much across the street and two more are very close by. Shops and restaurants are close by and it's easy access to the highway.

10 days in Paradise
This was our first time staying in Maui Vista and we have already decided we will return. The location is prime, walking distance to many bars, restaurants, shops and the amazing gorgeous beaches of Kamaole I,II, and III. The best beaches in Kihei. The condo was clean, quiet and secure. The kitchen is well equipped with most everything you need, the only thing lacking would be some spices etc. that would keep. We appreciated all the beach toys ( chairs, snorkel gear, noodles, cooler, beach mats, towels, and even a hat if you forgot yours!) We had a wonderful relaxing 10 days. Mahalo Tricia, can't wait to return.

Great location and fantastic beach
Recently stayed at Maui Vista suite 2112. Tricia was great to deal with and the property itself a great location and clean equipped with everything you need for the beach. Great corner unity so very private. The beach itself was fantasticv and connected with severl others and was a 2 minute walk away. Maui Vista is located in the center of Kihie and could walk to shops, greocery store and restaurants. Will defineity be back and would stay in this unit again. Thanks Tricia and Ralph. Read more

Maui dream holiday
This condo was very close to the beach and to shopping.
We found it to be quiet and private. The kitchen had ever-
thing we needed for cooking and barbecuing too.The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. We'd love to
return to Maui and would definately stay in this condo again.
Our vacation at Maui Vista #2112
Our wonderful vacation staying at Maui Vista #2112
We had a wonderful stay at Maui Vista #2112. Being on the end of the building, it has alot of privacy without blocking out the scenery. It is centrally located so you are close to a fabulous beach and many shops and fine restaurants. Water activities, e.g., scuba, snorkeling and paddle boarding are close by and there are several golf courses just a short drive away providing great views during your round. This was our second stay at #2112 and we plan on another next year.
Feels like home
Nice .clean condo with a great location near the beach
Great time in Maui!
Tricia and Ralph's condo was a good home base for visiting Maui. It's comfortable and nicely decorated and has everything you would want, and some things you might not expect, i.e snorkel gear, tennis racket, beach towels and chairs, and 2 books on Maui (most helpful). Unlike most, this condo's patio was private. The condo is right across the street from a nice beach, and not far from restaurants and shops, including a supermarket. I loved being able to walk to some places, especially the beach. It's also easy to access main roads for visiting the rest of the island. There's also a tourist kiosk near the condo office, usually staffed by someone who can book trips, help with directions, and answer questions. All in all a very good place to stay, and I would definitely recommend it to people.

Awesome Maui Condo!
Our condo was great and exactly as described! It had everything we needed: fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, etc.), and most importantly...it was immaculate. The unit is on the ground floor, at the end of the building so is has a larger lanai surrounded by beautiful landscaping and was very private. A short distance away was one of the three swimming pools, which was never crowded. And around the corner were three Bbq's - we had some great cookouts!! I've stayed in other areas of Maui but think Kiehei is the best. Great beaches within walking distance and just a short drive away are beaches in Wailea and Makena - for a little variety! Maui Vista is centrally located; with many nearby restaurants and shops. In the afternoons the trade winds were refreshing and the evenings were quiet with a cool ocean breeze. Mahalo to the owners who provided a wonderful tropical retreat. We loved the condo and are already planning to return!
Great condo close to it all with everything you need!
We had a great stay here in January. It was the perfect home base for an amazing vacation. Much more room than what we would have gotten at a similarly priced hotel room, plus they had all the beach equipment we needed (towels, chairs, snorkel stuff, etc). We had a rental car but didn't need it much cause its an easy walk to the beach, great restaurants and shopping. Loved being able to jump in the pool right outside the back door too!
Very nice place to stay.
Easy check in with key easily accessible. Condo was located on very quiet corner ground floor. Easy walk to good beach. Condo had all necessary things to make the stay comfortable. Close to shopping and dining. I would stay here again next trip to Maui.
Convenient, comfortable, and clean
Great place and an incredible value. I always travel on a budget and appreciated the reasonable rates. The condo is located across the street from the beach. We found everything we needed there.
Great value for money
Excellent location. Found the place to be very neat. Lots of towels and blankets (very useful for beaches and Halekela sunrise visit). Found other useful stuff like beach chairs, nice silverware (ended up buying basic groceries at safeway and cooking ourselves).
Only note of caution: Keep all food items in the fridge. Or spend your time fighting ants. Read more

Thanks Arjun for the tip about keeping food secure. Since Maui is such a tropical Island it's necessary to take those precautions, Aloha Tricia
Nice pleasant restful stay
We have camped on Maui and chose Maui Vista to stay. We loved how close it was to a nice beach; it was a comfortable stay. Just what we wanted. A quiet place to relax after beach time or driving around.
Everything was as advertized
We had a wounderful time on Maui the condo is in a great spot to do and visit all the island has to offer.
My husband and I stayed at Maui Vista for only 2 nights - our effort to slightly extend our Maui vacation. Loved Kihei. Maui Vista is right across from Charley Young Beach, a very nice beach for relaxing and swimming. The condo is easy walking distance to restaurants and bars. No beach view, but comfortably appointed.

Awesom Place to stay
Maui Vista is an awesome place to stay. It is located acrossed the street from the beach which we went to everyday. The property was kept very clean. A great place for a romantic getaway or for families.

This ground floor unit was ideal for us in regard to location in Kihei and the island and amenities provided by the owner.
The owner was very accommodating and answered our "ton" of questions promptly. The unit is tastefully decorated but not cluttered. There is an ample supply of linens and kitchen needs. Though we did not use any, there seemed to be lots of beach "toys" including sand mats and chairs.
We mainly ate in the condo as the few eateries we tried were not able to , or didn't care to, accommodate for a gluten free diet. Seascapes at the aquarium was an exception and provided a wonderful meal.
We were one week without a vehicle and were able to walk to the nearby grocery store and of course the beach was literally across the street. This unit is second in from busy S Kihei Road so we avoided the traffic noise as well.
We rented a car for our second week and explored the island from sunrise on the crater to the rain forest to Lahaina and a cocktail sunset cruise where we observed three humpback whales. We enjoyed the birds - the nesting wedge-tailed shearwaters by Kamaole III beach were special.

Maui Vista great location and comfortable condo
Our holiday experience at Maui Vista was awesome right from booking the condo through to getting back on the plane.
Tricia treated us like family and introduced us to her brother who lives on the island. He cleans the condo and was excellent in helping us to replace a broken toaster, provide additional sheets and suggesting things to do, like particular fishing charters etc.
The condo was very comfortable, especially the bed, we slept with the bedroom window open and did not need the air conditioning on as the trade winds and over head fan kept us very comfortable. It was nice to wake up to the birds singing in the morning and we totally enjoyed our meals out on the Lani.
The condo is well stocked with towels, cookware and all of the utensils you would need. The coffee thermos came in handy.
We were happy to see beach and sports gear in the closet, tennis rackets, chairs, cooler, umbrella, boogie boards and snorkel gear even though we had brought our own.
The Maui Vista is close to all amenities and we enjoyed our walks on Charlie Beach which is only a 3 min walk away.
We liked being on the ground floor as the Lani's are larger and we could walk out about 20 or so steps to the pool. The barbecues were clean and worked well when we used them.
The flat screen TV and stereo worked well including the wireless internet which allowed me to browse the web in checking out all of the fun things to do in Maui.
There were many hi-lights for us on this trip but the one that sticks out more so was our snorkel trip to Molokini on the Quicksilver, double deck catamaran. Highly recommend you go with them as they take good care of you, lifeguards in the water and you snorkel at Molokini and Turtle Town. Then after lunch they cruise checking out some Celebrity homes, Makena Beach, then whale watch on the way back. Nothing negative about this trip and I can hardly wait to come back again, thank you Trica!
What is another word for paradise?
My two daughters and I enjoyed every amenity offered at Maui Vista. We played tennis every morning at 8 a.m., followed by a leisurely breakfast on the private lanai. The condo kitchen was better equipped than my own! The beach across the street is the best we found - not a pebble, not a string of seaweed, just beautiful sand and clear water. All in all, a perfect vacation, and we will return. Thanks Tricia!
Vacation in Maui
I had a great time in Maui and your condo was excellent, clean, comfortable and very quiet. The other thing was that it was close to all the malls. We did not get to use the pool but we walked around the grounds and saw that everything was very clean and the people were very friendly. If I should every go back to Maui I would definitely give you a call to use your condo again.
Nice condo, very clean and nice decor. A short walk across the street to the beach. Very nice beach. Quiet area. Condo is fully furnished with snorkel equipment and beach chairs. Very nice. Excellent location near restaurants, beautiful sunsets, easy access to all ends of the island. Loved staying here.
Why Stay Anywhere Else?
Keith and I stay at Maui Vista condo 2112 from 3/3 to 3/11 2010. We
thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is an end unit, secluded and
quiet. No elevators or stairs needed to access the unit. You are steps
away from everything. The pool is just off the lanai and the beach,
Charlie Young, is right across the street. You are just a short walk
away from a morning cup of coffee, local farmers markets, shops and
dining. We also found that all of the major attractions are very close
either in Kahului or Lahaina. Would recommend that you stop at Wal-Mart
or Kmart on your drive from the airport and purchase your
non-perishables and frozen foods. The groceries on Maui are quite
pricy. Consider the Blue Water Rafting excursion and the Feast at Lele,
you will thoroughly enjoy them. The excursion takes you to the volcanic
caves and some of the best snorkeling on the island while also swimming
with the dolphins and the turtles. You can also see the Whales, if you
visit during whale season. The Luau offers several Polynesian cuisines
(Hawaiian, Tahiti, New Zealand and Samoa) all while watching a beautiful
sunset. The Feast also offers an open bar with a general selection of
alcohol and non-alcoholic tropical drinks, wine, and beer. We found
Tricia and Ralph to be very accomodating, responded to any inquiry
quickly, and bent over backwards to meet our needs. We highly recommend
them and their condo ammentities will be sure to please.

Maui Vista #2112
Great location within the complex and within Kihei. Easy and pleasant walking to restaurants, shops and the beach.

We had a wonderful time in Maui this year. This is our 6th time to Maui and
this was one of our best years yet. The condo was great. Everything that we
could have asked for. It was very clean, updated and stocked with everything
from kitchen items to beach supplies. We love the bottom unit. It was so nice
walk out onto the patio and across the grass to the pool. No one is on the
right side of you so it was very private. Charlie Young beach which is directly
across the street is one of the nicest beaches in Maui. It is walking distance
to restaurants as well as shopping I would highly recommend this unit to
anyone who is looking to have the perfect place to stay. We will surely stay
again. We stay at the Maui Vista every year. We love everything about it and I
don't think you can find any better for the great price. I honestly can't say
anything bad about it. We love it!!!
Great to do business with!
Tricia is great to do business with! I had to cancel my reservation due to unforeseen circumstances and it was a smooth transaction. She’s good at communication details about the condo and responds in an appropriate amount of time. I’m really sad I had to cancel but Tricia’s condo is on my short list for my next Maui vacation – I highly recommend her.
Quite Retreat in Paridise!
I stayed at unit 2112, Maui Vista for a week in September 2009. This is a nicely furnished and fully equiped unit including everthing you could need including beach supplies - toys, chairs, unbrella, towells, cooler, etc. The unit is a clean, well maintained, ground floor unit on the end and very private the way the building is laid- out. It's close to the pooland very relaxing yet within walking distance of all the action -- beach, eateries, shopping and all the fun stuff. The owners are very accomodating and the whole rental experiance is very fast and convenient. You won't go wrong staying here no matter what's you pleasure.

Maui Paradise Holiday
The south Kihei beach location made getting to beaches (Ulua, Big Beach, or Kihei parks), kayaking, snorkeling, eateries, and sunsets quick and easy - which gave us more time to do the things we really wanted to do. Don't miss the walk along Wailea from Ulua Beach to the south end of Wailea - just follow the concrete path - it's a great evening stroll!
Pay attention to RW (yes, that's his name) - the concierge - excellent recommendations and reviews!! While nothing is truly very far away, it was also nice to be close to Haleakala where we could readily go to cooler up-country weather to enjoy hiking and the view from various places around the volcano (including sunrise at the summit - bring your jacket!). The small artsy towns of Makawao (the hot-shop and glass work at Hot Island Glass in Makawao is incredible) and Paia, as well as the road to Hana and its many waterfalls were equally accessible (if you like plants, flowers, and nice views, check out the Garden of Eden - bring your lunch). And still, it was not too far to the Swap Meet in Kahalui on Saturday (neat stuff, fresh fruits and veggies, souvenirs, and even some real bargains), climbing through the historic Iao Valley, or even driving up to Lahaina for an evening show.
The apartment was very comfortable and we found extremely convenient and private on the ground floor level. Being able to cook (and grill), eat small quiet meals or the ability to make quick changes to plans without having to worry about finding a restaurant (and save some money) made the Maui Vista choice even more appealing. Also - didn't have to worry the crowds and parking of a big hotel. Quiet evenings alone, sunsets across the street - What's not to like?! We'll be back! THANK YOU!
Home Sweet Home
I loved the feeling of being home while I was on vacation at the Maui Vista. While the beaches were great, the people kind, and the adventures amazing, going home each night to a hot shower and a soft blanket was the best!
I especially enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen. Once I hit the grocery store, I had everything I needed to make yummy meals, and refreshing blended drinks. There was a small learning curve to vacationing on an island, that being to never leave even a crumb of food out. The tiniest little ants would fine even the smallest of crumbs missed during clean up the night before. After the first night, we learned to really wipe everything down, and put all the non-canned food away in the fridge. That solved that problem!
It was wonderful to just walk across the street and be at the beach, with the beach chairs and boogie boards provided by the condo owners.
I loved that we felt as though we were staying in a friends' home, rather than a hotel. We felt so welcome from the beginning of our vacation to the very last day. Thank you Tricia and Ralph.
getting away from the battlezone
I live on Maui, but desperately wanted to get away from Makawao for 4th of July. It's likle being on the front lines here durning July 4th. I booked a room at this particular condo and was relieved to see how nice and clean it was. Great location and nice enviorment. Would stay there again. Definitely would recommend it.Aloha.
Maui Vista Condo
A few months back my wife and I traveled to Hawaii and stayed at Maui Vista. Boy was I surprised when I arrived. The complex is very nice and tropical. And gee, this condo was very clean and well taken care of. So very quite but yet it's across from some nice beaches. Plus the restaurants, markets, and nightclubs were within walking distance.
I'd highly recommend staying at Maui Vista. The owner, Tricia, was very helpful. we had a great stay and met some very nice people.

Maui Vista stay
We've stayed in this particular condo for the last 2 years and absolutely love it
and would highly recommend it. It's always clean and very convenient to
everything and the beach especially. Always a great pleasure to stay at.
