E komo mai meke aloha kakou! Welcome to Maui Vista 1225.

For the sixteen years we have been associated with vrbo, we have used this space to tell you about the features and benefits of our condo. We have wanted you to know what others have said about staying with us and about the care and love we have lavished on the unit. And so we are going to offer you one recent review here:

Another AMAZING Maui visit
In past reviews, I have raved about Stafford and Nancy's place. This one continues that pattern. It's hard to honestly describe how nice this condo is, how well located, how EXTREMELLY well stocked, and how AMAZING the owners are. We had a wonderful time (except we had to leave and come home). Nancy checked in with us on our first day to make sure everything was great, and gave us a farewell call on our last day. I have rented from VRBO probably 30 times, and this couple are hands down the best owners to work with. If you get an opportunity, book this condo - you will be thrilled. But dont book in January - we plan to come back every year.

And, by the way, this guest did return in 2023 and is booked for 2024!

We are very much hands-on owners and regularly update and maintain the unit - the closet sliding doors were replaced in 2018 as was the stove (or is it an oven?) The living room air conditioner was replaced in 2023 and the tables in 2020. And in August of 2023, the bathroom will be remodeled (the second time since we bought the condo). The condo has been updated but still has the feel of the tropics in the furniture, art work, and color scheme.

If you have read the reviews, you know that we supply everything we can think of to make your vacation easy and stress-free. We have herbs and spices, sugar, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, storage bags, shampoo and conditioner, laundry detergent, lots of bath tissue, paper towels, and Kleenex. And, of course, pots and pans, cooking utensils, dishes, glasses, etc. There are lots of pillows - we regularly toss older ones and buy new - beach towels, regular towels, and sheet sets. Oh yes, and beach chairs, boogie boards, beach bags, coolers and blue ice. Please know that we make every effort to keep the condo well-stocked; forgive us if we are temporarily low on some items.

We suggest that you check in to the condo before you buy anything but your personal food and drinks to avoid spending vacation money on things already in the unit (this note was a suggestion of a recent guest).

We are at the condo at least three times a year to deep clean (as in on hands-and-knees scrubbing the tile, cleaning and polishing the Pergo, and cleaning the area rugs) and restock all of the supplies we provide for you. It is important to us that the condo and its contents are clean and well-arranged. And Maggie, our housekeeper, is outstanding. We are so lucky to have her. We all do our best to keep the unit clean and you safe and healthy. But still, in this age of covid, when you decide to travel, whether to Hawaii or elsewhere, there is the risk that you might contract this virus or another illness. It’s a risk that you need to think about and decide if you want to assume.

The location of the Maui Vista is across the street from Charlie Young Beach, the north end of Kamaole One Beach Park. It’s a short two-to-three-minute walk to the beach. There are many shops and stores within walking distance on South Kihei Road and a grocery store (Foodland) about a half a mile north of the condo.

We hope that you will decide to travel to Maui and that you will seriously consider staying in Maui Vista 1225.

A hui hou, (until we "talk" again),

Three legal issues: we must provide our tax registration number(s) - they are GE 014-590-3616-01 and TA 014-590-3616-01; our management company information: Maui Condo and Home, phone number 808-8789-5445; and our tax map key/parcel ID: RP 2-3-9-018-003-0048-000

Information on taxes:

As on Feb.. 1, 2021, vrbo has added THE GENERAL EXCISE TAX OF 4.167% TO ITS SERVICE FEE (not their idea - the state required it). Vrbo shows that tax separately.

However, vrbo now is co-mingling (with the accommodations taxes) the tax you are charged on the management fee from Maui Condo and Home (our on-island managers, required by law). The fee of $50 is shown separately but the Transient Accommodations Tax and the General Excise Tax on the $50 are co-mingled with those taxes on accommodations.. Hawaii requires that you are told what taxes you are paying - taxes that are "visibly passed through" to you, so that's why this note. You will be paying $8.71 on the $50 Maui Condo fee.

THERE IS ONE MORE TAX ADDITION: The State of Hawaii has decided to take from the counties the part of the Transient Accommodations Tax that has traditionally been given to the counties. As you might imagine, that change has a significant effect on the budgets in all the counties. This change was effective Nov. 1, 2021 for new reservations.
The state legislature then voted to allow the counties themselves to levy the amount of tax the state took away. Consequently, on Maui, the TA tax that used to be 10.25% has increased to 13.25% for a total tax of 17.42% on accommodations and anything related, such as cleaning, resort fees, or parking.

Nancy was great to work with! She contacted us when we arrived to make sure everything was ok and once again the day before we left to thank us for coming. Condo was well supplied with nearly anything you might need. The condo is centrally located with easy access to numerous beaches and also within walking distance of shopping and dining. We had a great time. The two weeks went by very quickly. Mahalo Nancy and Stafford for letting us stay at your condo.

My husband and I stayed in Nancy’s condo for our anniversary. The condo has everything we need for the stay. We were surprised to find out that it also has beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, etc. we had a great time there. We will return in the future.

This condo is well equipped and perfectly located to visit all the different attractions and a block from the beach. Nancy provided lots of tips and ensured our stay went smooth. I would highly recommend!

We've enjoyed staying at Nancy and Stafford's Maui Vista condo several times now, because their care of the condo and concern for their guests is superb! So much of what we could want or need during our stay is already provided. From the kitchen to the bathroom to DVDs and books to just about anything we need for a day at the beach or a drive around the island, it seems all we have to do is open a closet, cabinet or drawer and there it is! Over the years, Nancy and Stafford have made us feel like 'ohana even more than guests. And for these reasons and more we'll keep returning to this welcoming, beautiful and relaxing condo in paradise.

Nancy was a great host. We had a few questions about the area and choosing activities and her opinions were very helpful. She also accommodated our request too check in a little bit early. Thank you! The condo is clean and has everything you'd need for a family, including boogie boards in the closet and plenty of dishes/supplies. The location is nice, across the street from Charlie Young beach. Our family really enjoys snorkeling and if you walk across the street to the beach and walk to the right , there are some snorkeling opportunities. I do like kamaole II beach a little bit better , and it's a short 1/2 mile walk from the property. Thank you Nancy for your kind hospitality!

This condo was perfect and had everything we need (and more!!) for our vacation. This is not our first time at Maui Vista and this condo is by far the best we rent. Thank you again for your hospitality. I hope we will return soon.

This was our second trip to Maui, and this was also our second stay at this amazing property! It has everything you need for an awesome beach day, and it is within walking distance of a ton of amazing restaurants! We will absolutely recommend this property to all our friends!

The pictures and description weren't completely accurate - Nancy and Stafford's place was even more than we could have imagined! We could tell from her fully stocked condo that she goes all the way in making her guests feel at home. The beach towels, boogie boards, beach umbrella, and coolers were super useful at Charley Young Beach, which was just a 5-minute skip and a hop away. Our daughter who's into cooking was awed by just how stocked the kitchen was: modern electric range and full oven; microwave; full-size refrigerator; every cooking utensil imaginable; plastic food containers; and my favorite - Keurig coffee maker. Plus, the location in Kihei was close to some of the best beaches (Maluaka, Makena, Wailea), markets (ABC Mart, Foodland, Safeway), and restaurants (Kihei Caffe, Maui Brewing Co) in Maui, and just 30 minutes to Costco and the airport. One more thing: The pool seems heated! We loved the condo so much, sometimes it was hard to spend time outside! But don't abuse the condo's amenities - treat Nancy and Stafford with the same love and respect they give their condo and guests!

Lovely owners, very responsive. Many, many items available for use in the condo. This was my third time staying at a condo in the Maui Vista complex and by far the most stocked one. Had a great time!

Clean & cute. Great location for walking to shops and restaurants. Love the keypad for entry so you dont have to worry about keys when going to the beach. Beach access right across the street. Snorkeled and seen turtles every morning. Nancy was absolutely amazing and made sure we were all good to go. Thank again for a great stay!

The host was very nice and informative throughout the whole experience. Was super easy to check in, and we had everything we needed in the condo. Great location in Kihei and was able to walk to many good places to eat. Would definitely stay there again. Aloha!

This condo is everything to make your stay perfect. I have been coming here for 20 plus years and never seen a more well stocked condo than this one! Clean comfortable and owner is the best I ever dealt with. This is what renting should be. Thank you, Nancy!

This condo have everything you needed to feel like you home , feel comfortable. I personally like to cook and I had everything I needed and more . Owner, Nancy , is very detail oriented so if you forget something at home you most likely find it here anyway which is nice. Condo is clean, good location - as building 1 is the closest to the beach. We would like to return !

This place is best for anyone who want to enjoy Maui without missing out anything . Towels, utensils, beach chairs, umbrella almost everything you need is available . Beach and food is just around the corner and it’s connected to all attractions.

Communication with the owner was very good. And the condo did have beach towels and beach chairs, ice chests aplenty. It also had plenty of kitchen equipment. Fantastic to have all that available.

We had an extremely pleasant experience at Nancy and Stafford’s condo. We originally booked for 2020 and rescheduled due to Covid. Nancy was so kind and accommodating and completely understood us rescheduling. I was so happy with her that we decided to extend our stay at their condo. Communication was excellent from not only her but the condo management. We were warmly welcomed. The condo itself has everything you could possibly need from beach gear (umbrella, chairs, coolers, towels and more), to spices, games, extra toiletries if you forget something, and more. The beach is a quick three minute walk across the street on an amazing beach. We explored all parts of the island and we agreed this location was amazing being walkable to food, beach, and stores. We had an amazing time in Maui and would definitely stay here again. Great rates for all you get. Thank you so much!

We loved staying at Maui Vista! The location was awesome, being roughly 100 yards from an awesome beach. The condo was exactly what we needed, and we would definitely recommend this property to anyone traveling to Maui!

The owners are wonderful to rent from. Great communication and they go out of their way to make sure you are prepared for travel and comfortable when you get there. Wonderful location, just across the road from Charlie Young Beach. Lanai is peaceful and lovely view of the beautiful grounds. Easy access to condo from parking lot. Easy walk to Kihei Caffe. Condo is completely well stocked with everything you need for the beach. Highly recommend!

The owner was great to work with! Contacted us when we arrived and again the day before we left to thank us for coming. This place is perfect for a couple. Kihei is a nice place to stay on the Island. The condo is across the street from Charlie Young Beach which was excellent, you can't see the ocean from the patio if it matters. There is a Boogie Board in the Condo and that beach is perfect for it in the afternoons. Everything you need for a day at the beach will be there for you. Places to eat are only a short walk away as well. 10/10 recommend staying here.

Loved this condo! The owners are so thoughtful and easy to access. The condo has absolutely everything you need, minus groceries of course. Fully stocked with everything for the beach, everything in the bathroom and kitchen. The lanai is so relaxing. And proximity to the beach is incredible! For the price of this condo, we come out of the condo, walk across the street and maybe a half a block to the access to a beautiful beach. Fantastic snorkeling right at the beach, saw so many turtles! I will definitely stay here again. It was clean and we only used the pool once because the beach was so close and so nice.

We have been to Maui eight times and have stayed at Maui Vista six times in various condos. This time, we spent seven nights at Nancy and Stafford's condo. Of all the condos we've stayed in, this one is stocked the best. We never ran out of paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, beach towels, dish or laundry detergent, or anything else because they keep the place stocked just like you would stock your home. They simply get everything from Costco in big lots, and it avoids the wasteful, time-consuming process of running to the store for enough detergent for the last two days. This condo also has the best supply of cooking utensils and other kitchen supplies, just like we would have at home. They leave you a key for the in-room safe, in case you are concerned about valuables. (We have never had anything stolen at Maui Vista.) It has two air conditioners, which is unusual for Maui Vista. That makes it much easier to cool the bedroom. The condo was clean and welcoming, with Stafford's tips posted on how to make everything work. I wondered about going through Maui Condo and Home for the final arrangements, but they were very efficient, very helpful over the phone, and they made it easy to decline the extra insurance they sell. They also make it easy to change the lock-box code for the door, and you don't need to carry a key. Be aware there is an extra fee ($40) from Maui Condo and Home, and they will try to sell you trip insurance which you can decline. The $40 fee is less than the cleaning fee charged for many condos, so I thought it was quite reasonable. We had a great trip, and we were completely happy with the condo. We will definitely stay there again. Nancy and Stafford have done everything they can to make it a great place to stay.

Nancy and Stafford keep the condo so well stocked with so many items,from beach chairs,cooler, plush white bath towels ,down pillows,Hawaiian CDs, Ziplock bags and containers, UNO cards to Q Tips. Our 10days stay were too short.. We like Kihei being quieter part of Maui,close to lots of beautiful beaches and coves but at the same time only 10 mins walk to restaurants and supermarket. My daughter likes the queen size air mattress which only takes a couple minutes to set up. My son likes the free WiFi and free phone call to Canada so that he can chat with and Skype his girlfriend. My husband is a early riser,he enjoys walking to Charley Young beach to watch the sunrise.He also like the safe in the master bedroom. Me! I like everything.Iz's CD,I love his music. I devoured the Maui Reveal book.It took us to alot of beautiful sites and it even tells you the locations of public washrooms on the Road to Hana. Looking at the availability calender for next year,you know this is the right choice. I just hope there will be vacancy for us when we return!

Loved the condo. Just as pictures showed. Owners were great to deal with. End unit very nice and easy to access stairs. Would stay here again.

We had a lovely stay at this Maui Vista condo. The owners were great to deal with, very quick to respond to my emails. Condo is well stocked with everything you need and just a short trip to supermarket, starbucks and the recycling centre. They even have a pack & play for the little ones. You aren't allowed to hang towels or swim suits over the railing (building rules) to dry but we found some clips in the drawers (good thinking!) and got creative with the outdoor furniture. We appreciate that the owners offer their property at a reasonable price. Given the location so close to a really beautiful beach, it's a great arrangement. Environmentally friendly tip: save your mixed paper, cardboard, cans & glass as there is a recycling depot just off the highway. Nice to be able to visit Maui and keep our recycling lifestyle!

We had a wonderful stay in Stafford & Nancy's condo. They made us feel so very welcomed and they were always easily accessible to answer any questions or concerns. The condo was comfortable, fully equipped (right down to extra toothbrushes) with many extras that you would not find in other condos...they should really open their own hotel, it would be a 5 Star Accomodation. Mahalo Nancy and Stafford for going above and beyond to make our stay so memorable....we'll be back for many years to come.

Stafford and Nancy, We really enjoyed our stay at your home. Thank you for being personable with all our questions and we were taken back by how well supplied your home was with all of the various amenities. In addition, your place was clean, well maintained, quiet, and centrally located near the beaches in Kihei that we liked the best. It was so easy to take the beach chairs and walk a couple blocks to do one of favorite activities which was to watch a different sunset every night and walk the surf in perfect evening temperature. This was our first visit to Maui and it is difficult to explain in writing, the sense of what being on the island is really like. It is a relaxing, tropical, friendly, laid-back, feeling that makes you want to stay longer and come back sooner. Your place added to that desire to return to Kihei and we plan to come back next year in addition to having already recommended your home to some of our friends. Thank you again for providing such a nice place for us. Observing many of the vacation rental choices on VRBO is a daunting task when you're looking for the just-right place because there are so many to choose from. But we could see by your writing that you were very invested in your home and that you cared about the people who rented from you. Talking with you on the phone confirmed that and we are happy to say that your place was everything described and a little more. It was our pleasure to be your guest.

We spent 12 days here in April 2010, we were extremely happy when we arrived. The condo is spotless and has EVERYTHNG you could imagine: coolers, beach chairs, towels and all the kitchen necessities you need. Having the washer and dryer in the condo was great. Charley Young beach right across the road was one of our stops daily. We utilized the on site BBQ's quite allot When we come back, we definitely plan on staying here again. Thank-you Nancy and Stafford for a great vacation !!

Aloha Nancy and Stafford, We wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful Kihea condo with us. To anyone who is in the process of doing what I did ie. looking at the huge number of available rentals in the Kihea area let me make this easy. We found the Maui Vista complex extremely well looked after including the tennis courts, pools, and BBQs. The location is perfect, right across the street from a gorgeous beach and close to everything. This condo is meticulously maintained and the owners have provided you with everything you would need for your holiday. This includes kitchen essentials, movies, books, suntan lotion, beach accessories and toys,stereo, a great guidebook and anything else you think you might need. Absolutely loved it and will return.

Hi Nancy and Stafford, I had a great time at your place. It was very clean, and comfortable. I felt right at home. I was overwhelmed with all the resources you provided at the Condo. You have everything from A to Z. Bathroom equipped with tootpaste, toothbrushes, soaps and even beauty supplies. Washing machine in good working order and clean. The Condo is in walking distance to beaches and, stores. I love your place and will highly recommend to my family and friends. I will be back!! Aloha Charmaine

We spent 12/17-1/01 at this wonderful condo and really enjoyed our time there. The pictures don't do it justice (much nicer in person) and so clean. We travel quite a bit and this is the first time we have used VRBO and to say the least, this experience met and exceeded our expectations. There are so many "extras" here. Wonderful beach chairs, great umbrella, beach blanket, beach towels, five various types of ice chests as well as paper plates and plastic eating utensils to use on a picnic. Unbelievable rental price for all that is included in this condo. Our son was stayng down the road in a 2-bdrm paying $200+ a night and he couldn't believe the price we were paying for what we had and said that he was getting "ripped off". Would definitely recommend this condo to anyone going to Maui. Looking forward to returning in the future and staying here. James and Betty Watts

We came to Maui to visit our daughter who lived in Kihei. She recommended we stay at the Maui Vista since it is only 5 blocks from your apartment. After looking at the different rental units, we selected Nancy & Stafford's. Their unit was perfect. It had everything we needed to enjoy a day at the beach and make dinner. Next time we visit her we'll will stay here again. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.
