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

We still have a few days open in October, and I want to book them! :) We are offering a great deal if you are interested! Only $127/night in Nov for 2 bedroom, Ocean view!!

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 360 with 2 controllers, iPod docking stations, Keurig coffee maker, custom artwork, as well as a new queen sleeper couch, new bar-height lanai furniture 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 Maui

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

My husband and I were in Hawaii for our honeymoon a few weeks ago, and we had a great experience staying at Ellen's condo in Kihei! The listing was exactly as described - the apartment was clean, beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed. The overall location was perfect as well, with a beautiful view of the ocean and the ability to get around the island easily. I definitely recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a living accommodation away from the resort area, but central enough to visit any part of Maui. Overall, we had an excellent trip and will consider staying at the condo again the next time we are in town :)

Ellen is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how responsive Ellen has been to all our questions and concerns. She replied to every inquiry right away, and was very flexible and understanding of our needs.

The unit was very clean and accommodating, with lots of little extras like beach chairs, boogie boards, and beach towels. The complex itself is very quiet, a good place for those who are looking for a calm vacation. There is a mix of vacationers and full-time residents, and the management attempts to meet the needs of all.

The beach is literally across the street, and we snorkeled there several times and saw sea turtles up close. The north part of the beach offers some shade.

We had a great vacation and enjoyed our time at Maui Vista.

Very nice place, host very responsive

  • 5 of 5

Place was quite nice and clean, bed comfortable, has everything you would want if you want to make a meal but we opted to eat out instead. Host was responsive to email and questions. We didn't know if we could make the Road to Hana trip from this location, but if you get up early enough (7am start for us) should be able to cover most of the great places in one day. Beach is a walk across the street.

Owner's Response: Aloha Khanh - I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo! Yes, the Road to Hana is definitely a journey, but can be done in one day if you get an early start! Charley Young Beach (the one directly across the street from our condo) is also one of our favorites on the whole island - we often stop and the grocery store, pick up some sushi & poke and have a sunset picnic dinner there - spectacular! I hope you can visit again soon! Ellen

Very nice condo and location

  • 5 of 5

The property was great to stay in. It was a convenient location for us and felt very safe. There were 2 occasions that I needed to send documents for work and the staff at the condo was able to help me. The owner was attentive and helpful when we needed anything as well.

You can't beat the location. We wouldn't change a thing.

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Maui Vista and the first stay in unit 1402. The listing is accurate, the owners very helpful in advance and we had a very special family vacation.

I wish I could give a unique insight. Just know that the collective reviews paint a great picture is this property. We wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Great centrally located and comfortable accomodation

  • 5 of 5

The condominium was perfectly described. The beds were comfortable. The unit was very clean and comfortable. Perfect size for my husband, young son and me. Plenty of television stations, so my European born husband could watch the UEFA Euro Cup soccer matches. Loved the fact that it is located directly across from Charley Young beach, which we enjoyed nearly every day. Many fantastic restaurants a short drive or walk away. Ellen was very good at responding quickly to any questions from me and was very accommodating in allowing us to check in early as we had an early arrival time. We enjoyed our visit very much and would stay here again.
