Pros: walking distance to the beach, stores, restaurants - clean - well equipped with everything we needed - quick response to any problems that arose
Cons: noises amplified by bedroom window so it was a little bit loud when people walked by or were talking nearby - a couple items like the drapes and beach chairs are on their last leg of life but they still worked and that's just getting picky at this point.
Overall it was a great experience and we look forward to going back.

We stayed in 1114 for 21 days on this trip, this was our 2nd stay at Maui Vista and will not be our last! I found that we had most everything that we needed in this unit. The walk way in located in front of this unit so if you dont want to be on display this may not be for you, we didnt spend much time inside so for us this was not an issue. The unit is also very quite considering its location. I was on the 4th floor last trip and did miss the view that we had, however this was very easy to access rather then up and down floors.

Pretty much as expected. Great location! We lived on Maui 30 yrs ago just around the corner when Maui Vista was being built. Charley Young Beach, one of the best snorkeling places on the island is close by. This unit needs some updating and TLC. Torn drapes, stained carpet, shower curtain needs a scrub and kitchen needs some lights over the sink. Checked with front office about torn curtain. They said I needed to contact my agent or the owner. Not sure what the on-site people do. A little noisy being by the road and people going to and from the pool have a nice view of the interior. Everything worked and we were satisfied. I understand owners are hands-on and would be doing some work when they visit in June. We are not picky people. The stay was comfortable and with some attention this is a great bargain.
Long Term stay GREAT time excellent place
Reviewed on Monday, April 4, 2016
we stay here from Jan. 18th to March 12th and enjoyed every day. The unit is exactly as advertised. The location could not be better. under 5 minute walk to the beach and 10 to 15 minute walk to many stores and restaurants.On arriving even thought our flight was very late everything went smoothly. The unit was clean and ready.During our stay we did have a couple of problems, a coffee maker and beach umbrella that were worn out. But when Mauii Car and Condo were contacted new items arrived with in 24 hours no problems.Curtains and the screen door required small repair and again with in 24 hours a man was sent to correct this. Small things do happen over such a long period the fact they were taken care of immediately is what counts. If there is any down side to this unit it is that it is getting old and an update would really make it spectacular. Also as stated in a previous review being on the ground floor is great but sometimes a little noise is a small problem If you are use to cities as we are it did not bother us , but if you come from a quiet environment it could be a problem. Overall 5 stars we had a great time and the people in this complex were very friendly. I would stay here again.
Perfect for tennis tournament trip
Reviewed on Wednesday, January 20, 2016
We needed a place in Kihei when our son played in a tennis tournament with site locations mostly in Kihei, but also in Kahului. This was perfect for our needs.
- Location within 10 min of Kihei courts, 25 min from Kahului courts. Close to market, restaurants, beach.
- Clean, well appointed unit. living area furnishings dated, but clean and in good shape. Adequate linens for our party of 4.
- W/D small, but worked well. Need better instructions for cleaning lint screen (it's in the back of dryer drum).
- Ground floor unit was easy to access and felt safe (secure locks, right across hall from security office which has night coverage).
- Bedroom very nice, well lit. No AC, but has ceiling fan + table fan.
- Bathroom small, but clean.
- Extras in closet: beach chairs, small cooler, beach toys, extra blankets, vacuum, ironing board
- Pools small, but one was very close & clean.
- Unit CLOSE to tennis courts, which were open from 8:00 to dusk.
-Salvador, the night security guard was GREAT! Very helpful esp since some procedures were unclear.
-Lighting in living area poor.
-One living room table lamp didn't work. Curtain by sliding door needs repair. Didn't call about it b/c we were out most of the time.
-Sofa bed uncomfortable for me, but okay for the teenagers.
-Ceiling fan in bedroom rather loud.
-Instructions for getting parking permit and tennis court key, and for returning the tennis court key, unclear, especially since we arrived late Friday and left on a Monday holiday. Fortunately, security guard was able to assist. Get security ph # if you arrive on or plan to be staying after hours/weekends.
- Returned tennis court key to unmarked mail drop at office. Will have to wait to see if they can identify it and return the deposit.

The location was great. We were right across the street from a nice sandy beach that was never crowded. That alone was worth it. The bed was a little hard and the back room was a little warm for my liking but it was still comfortable enough all things considered. The kitchen had all the necessary tools to cook dinner and having the washer/dryer in unit was nice as well. I would stay here again no problem. Parking was free and right in front of unit. There was no noise from street and next to shops and bars as well.

Week in Kihei
Reviewed on Monday, May 18, 2015
Extremely satisfying. Granted this was my first trip to Hawaii ever so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I'd do it all over again the same way. Kihei condo is so much better than some fancy shmancy resort in Wailaia. Everything worked just fine without complaint. A centipede did get in one night even though we had the door closed, but that's just a hazard of being in Hawaii. I really have no complaint about anything. The lanai was fantastic and being on the ground floor was really great except I guess we didn't get quite the sunsets everyone above us did. But all it's only a hop and skip to the beach 50yds away and you've got a better beach sunset. I'm super happy I booked here.
Our 50th wedding anniversary celebration & neice's wedding
Reviewed on Thursday, April 23, 2015
My husband & I just came back from a 2 week stay in Maui Vista #1114; we found it to be very suitable for our needs. After a bit of confusion reserving the unit, which was finally resolved with the aid of Maui Condo & Car, airbnb and Jeff, we arrived & were pleasantly surprised to find it to be exactly as advertised as far as the location; both the convenience to amenities & the beach as well as the overall appearance. It was quite clean, although could use a bit of updating; nothing major. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, travelling most of the Island with a trip to Hana, visiting the aquarium, enjoying the Elvis impersonator, Darren Lee in Lahaina, dining at various close-by restaurants when not using the handy bbq's close by, lazing on the beautiful beach just a short walk away, as well as our pool, and of course our niece's lovely wedding in Makena -on the beach; Considering we are not spring chickens anymore being on a ground floor was a plus!
I would most definitely recommend this property to anyone interested in an affordable, appealing, though not fancy or elaborate, place to stay. I will keep this place in mind for sure if we're able to return to Maui, in fact I want to go back right now!!!!!

GREAT LOCATION--which trumps everything else, in my opinion--with access to Charley Young Beach just across the street (but therefore street noise when one would like to sit out on the lanai & meditate).
IMMACULATELY CLEAN and with everything one could possibly need for a vacation (except a functioning bedroom ceiling fan). Be sure to bring 1) earplugs for sleeping on the comfortable queen bed in order not to be disturbed by conversations outside the window from people passing by, and 2) your own, thinner beach towels, as the white ones provided were so thick as to be impractical. My friend who slept on the living room hide-a-bed declared it comfortable, as well.
Unlike in other Hawaiian properties I have rented, unfortunately, nothing was left behind in this kitchen except salt, pepper, coffeemaker filters, and a starter kit of sugar & creamer; but there's a small Natural Foods grocery store within walking distance about 5 blocks farther south on S. Kihei Road.

Maui Vist #1114
Reviewed on Saturday, May 24, 2014
The staff at Maui Condo and Car were great. I will be using their services again. With that being said I would choose a different condo to rent. Prospective customers should be very aware of the condo location within the complex. Condo #1114 at Maui Vista is about fourty feet from Kihei Road which generages a large amount of traffic noise. The front door is locate about ten feet from the vending machine and security office. It was very loud at night with people buying candy and sodas from the machine along with security coming and going. The main walk path to access Kihei Rd is directly next to this condo. You will hear alot of noise with people going in and out of the condo complex. Don't forget about all the loud drunks coming and going late at night due to the walk path also being next to the bedroom. All I can say is the location is very, very, very loud. Expect to be awake every night. Pass on this condo if you want any serenity on your vacation. I cannot stress this enough.

We were very satisified with the stay at Maui Vista condos. It was very close to the beach and all amenities. The only issues I had was the carpet was very dirty in the living room, the rest of the condo was very clean, and the windows were not very sound proof...you could hear everything outside if people were walking by and when people are leaving at all hours of the night to catch flights, it does keep you awake. Other than that, it was a great place to stay and we would look at staying there again if we return to Maui.

Our stay here was exactly what we were looking for. We were there for 4 nights and wanted to maximize our experience in Hawaii. This condo is very comfortable with a very comfortable bed and pillows, nice furniture and all the details one might need in an apartment during a vacation. They offered beach chairs, towels, ice chest, laundry and dish soap along with all your basic cooking utensils.
This room #1114 is probably the closest possible one to the beach which is only about a 200 yrd walk. And it's a very nice beach at that - very soft clean sand with small waves...great for snorkeling and or for kids/families.
We were very pleased with the whole experience. The Maui Vista property is very pleasant, and despite being maybe 15 years old or more, it's very clean, beautiful and the rooms are obviously recently updated. Our transaction with Maui Condo and Car was a very smooth, easy procedure.
I recommend grocery shopping at FoodLand which is about 2 blocks north on the main road in order to save money and all your breakfasts/lunches etc. Also although this apartment include coffee pot, toaster etc, it does not include any type of salt, pepper, cooking oil etc, so you'll need to keep that in mind when you do your shopping.
To sum it all up, this is a very nice, centrally located comfortable condo to stay at. I recommend it.
