OCEAN VIEW, ROMANTIC JACUZZI, A/C, WORLD CLASS BEACH! ONLY - $124/NIGHT!

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Kihei - Maui Vista - #1402

2 BR/2 BA, Private 2-Story, Top Floor, Ocean View #1402 at Charley Young Beach

** August Special! ** We have a few nights open in August and want to fill them! Only $124/night Hurry - at this price it won't last long!

Come share our dream home!

This condo is not an investment property, we live in this condo part time. We chose this condo for its location right across from Charley Young Beach (next to Kama'ole 1), our favorite Maui beach. Our condo has an ocean view from our lanai, living room and kitchen. Charley Young Beach is directly across the street.

Our condo (#1402) is on the top (4th) floor in building #1 and is one of the biggest and nicest units in the Maui Vista complex. Since it's in the first building, it provides the best ocean and pool view in the complex, as well as plenty of privacy since the condo is located near the end cap. Enjoy the sunset from the Lanai balcony before you take a soak in our romantic Jacuzzi tub. The condo is air conditioned, has all the usual amenities, PLUS free Internet, free Hawaii, mainland and Canadian phone calls and more (see details). Includes a new flat panel TV, xBox with 2 controllers, iPod docking stations, Keurig coffee maker, custom artwork, as well as a new queen sleeper couch, new bar-height lanai furniture, a zero gravity lounge chair and Tommy Bahama beach chairs! In May 2014 we remodeled the kitchen - all new granite counter tops, new stainless range, sink and dishwasher!

We chose a Kihei location because Kihei gets more sun than most of Maui (some parts of Maui can be quite wet!). Kihei is also centrally located, making it easy to take a quick trip to Lahaina (west side) or the North shore (which is great for sports... one of the reasons we are on Maui). Kahului (where the airport is) is only 15-20 minutes away. This is also where you would start your trip to Hana if you want to explore the wilder east side of the island. Or of course, just stay in Kihei and enjoy all its amenities. Supermarkets, restaurants, bars, golf courses, and more, are all within walking distance. And the beach is directly across the street - only a 2 minute walk away!

We believe being fully booked is more important than maximizing our rates, so our rates are priced slightly lower than other condos of the same caliber. We have a lot of repeat guests who absolutely love our condo - just read our reviews! :)

Are you looking for a nice one bedroom? The other unit we own is on the second floor (#1219). You can check it out here www.vrbo.com/507896.

Aloha! We are Markus and Ellen, the owners of the condo you are considering. We live on Maui part time, and we split our time between Maui, Houston, and Austria (near the city of Salzburg right smack dab in the middle of the Alps). I know: It's a tough life, but someone has to do it ;-)

But it's not all fun and games of course. We are business owners who happen to be lucky enough to be able to work from anywhere there is internet. The good news is we travel - a lot! The bad news is we always bring work with us, but we love it! Our core business revolves around custom software development. We specialize in consulting, custom software development, training, conferences, and more. We also publish one of the leading software developer magazines (CODE Magazine).

Ellen Whitney purchased this condo in 2012

When we bought our condo, we first and foremost looked for a great location. We wanted something that provided the “tropical island feeling”. We wanted to be near or on a beach, and not just any beach, but on a beach we really liked and felt at home at. We also wanted a nice location that would provide access to the things we liked, and we wanted a location that would give us easy access to other cool locations, such as the North Shore and Lahaina. We wanted grocery stores, restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. We wanted a great location that we could bring our friends to. With all that, it quickly became clear we wanted to be in the southern part of Kihei, near our favorite beach on the island - Charley Young Beach (the north end of Kama'ole 1).

Our favorite Maui beach is directly across the street, less than 100 yards away. We have tons of restaurants, bars and shops, including a grocery store, within walking distance. Other Maui attractions (such as the North Shore, which we visit a lot, or Lahaina, and many others) are not far, since Kihei is centrally located. The airport is nearby. Kihei is also sunnier than other parts of Maui - it actually rains a lot in some parts of Maui!

GREAT KIHEI CONDO - WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 out of 5
We were lucky enough to book this condo at the last minute for a quick getaway to Maui. It was a real gem of a find! We got an excellent rate and the place was well worth it. There were 4 of us staying (not couples) and it had plenty of room. The photos we took didn't seem to do the view justice. It's an excellent view, the ocean is right across the street! When we weren't out at the beach or off exploring the island, we were on the lanai admiring the view. The beach across the street was fantastic. Also, the owner was EXCELLENT to deal with. Very quick to reply to emails, very easy going and pleasant. That was really the icing on the cake to an already excellent experience. I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to stay here again or recommend it to anyone.

Great and clean. Our family had such a wonderful time. Everything is near by, and beach across the street is so clean and beatiful. It's all about waking up in paradise, and this is a great place to do it. Thanks again

NICE CONDO

  • 3 out of 5
For the most part, it was a nice condo. Would have preferred two showers in lieu of a jacuzzi tub. There were some pesky water ants even though all food items were either sealed shut or refrigerated. Only drawback.... Absolutely beautiful view!

Yes, the ants can be bothersome sometimes. The condo brings in an exterminator who sprays each unit once a month and we also provide additional ant spray under the kitchen sink.

One of the improvements we are looking at making in the future is a shower upstairs - we understand that would be more convenient for many of our guests.

Thank you again for staying with us!

GREAT CONDO AND EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 4 out of 5
Kihei is our favorite base while in Maui - it's central, walking-friendly, and reasonably priced.

The condo has a beautiful beach across the street (with amazing sunsets), plus plenty of restaurants, shopping, and a grocery store all within walking distance. It also offered handy items such as boogie boards, coolers, beach chairs, and even tennis rackets. The room was spotless, appliances all worked well, and the grounds were well-kept.

A tip for those new to tropical destinations: be sure food is well sealed and clean counters/empty the garbage often!

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS... LOVE, LOVE, LOVED IT!

  • 5 out of 5
This condo has it all... exceptional location, killer sunsets, and all of the necessary amenities! We loved walking across the street to Charley Young beach or down the street for a cup of Lava Java, the park, surf lessons and fun restaurants. We really appreciated having beach chairs, towels and a boogie board to use. The condo is tastefully appointed with just about every kitchen utensil you might want, including both a Keurig and a regular coffee maker. We were very comfortable and really impressed with the with overall maintenance of the entire complex!

If you or anyone you know are interested, we are in the process of purchasing another condo (a 1 Bedroom/Garden View) in the same building of Maui Vista (#1219). It should be available for rental starting in January.

We hope you'll come back and stay in one of our places soon! :)

MAUI IS ALWAYS A GOOD VACATION

  • 4 out of 5
This condo worked well for our purposes. The location right across from Charlie Young beach makes it perfect. The only thing that would have made it better, would have been better AC units. It was quite warm while we were there. The owners were pleasant to deal with and accommodating. Janice, the point of contact in Kihei, was more than accommodating. She really made our stay very nice.

Owner's Response: Hi Adam -

I'm so glad you had a great vacation!

We agree that the A/C unit wasn't large enough and we just replaced it with a new unit about three weeks ago.

I'll pass your kind words on to Janice. She'll be thrilled to know that she improved your stay! :)
