Overview

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

Come share our dream home!

** Family Fun Summer Special! ** Thought you couldn't afford a trip to Maui! Now you can! Special rates for July - only $124/night or $859/week!!

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 on VRBO - it's property 507896.

About Ellen Whitney

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

Why Ellen Whitney chose Kihei

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).

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

(Via email)

Aloha! My holiday was absolutely perfect! It couldn't have been better especially when I found out most of my friends were staying right next door at Maui Coast! Thank you, hope I get a chance to stay at your place in Maui again, I'll definitely recommend your place to everyone that is planning a trip!

Great spot - Great time - We'd go back; no hesitation!!

  • 5 of 5

Quaint, cozy and has very nice charming feel to the Condo. Has a great view of the ocean from the patio to relax and enjoy your coffee, tea or a cocktail while relaxing either beginning or concluding your day. It's located within convenient walking distance to quite a variety of places to shop or eat if you want to head out for a stroll. The owners have the Condo well equipped for a wide variety of activities you might want to engage in. The kitchen area has plenty of items for you to utilize if you choose to dine in to any degree. Owners are very easy to work with and we would not hesitate at all to connect with them again for a future visit to the island.

Maui Vista #1402

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived back home from an 18 day stay in this condo unit. From what I understand from the owner, we are their first repeat customers since they took ownership and I would not hesitate to stay there again. She is a sweetheart to work with. The Condo has everything you need including 6 beach chairs, boogie boards, tennis rackets (There are 3 courts in the complex), umbrellas for on the beach. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of dishes, pots and pans. The Blender was used daily for our Pina Coladas. Our son and his Wife joined us for a week and with 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, we had plenty of room. It is very central and within walking distance to many restaurants, bars, grocery store. Charley Young Beach is directly across the road and is our favorite of the 3 beaches across from the condo. The Views of the sunset are amazing from the Lanai.

The complex itself is very well maintained. BBQ's are cleaned every day, pool is cleaned every morning and all chairs and tables around the pools are washed down. The complex is also very quiet. This condo is an end unit so it is extremely quiet and you don't get any late arrivals wheeling luggage past your window if you are a light sleeper. When we return again to Maui, we would definitely lease from these owners again

Great Kihei condo - we loved it!

  • 5 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.

Excellent

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 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!

  • Review Submitted: Jan 7, 2014
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2013
  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the awesome view and your stay! 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! ellen & Markus

Great condo and excellent location

  • 4 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!
