    Don’t rent unit 1212!

    We’ve stayed at Maui Vista a lot and always have had nice condos in the past. BUT this time we are in #1212 and it is the pits! Poorly appointed, stuff broken or not working, very noisy... This is an OK facility but not this unit.

    We booked a stay at this place through booking.com, but we didn't actually get to stay there. 2 days before we were supposed to arrive, I got an email saying that they weren't able to run our credit card and that I needed to re-enter the information, so I did. 1 day before we were to arrive I got a text message saying that they had to cancel our reservation, because the unit had water damage. So the problem wasn't with our credit card, the problem was with the condo. That should have been communicated before I got an email about a problem with our reservation, instead of afterwards and making me concerned that there's a problem with our credit card right before we go on a trip. Also, I don't know why the email didn't say just say that there was a problem with the condo. Why the misinformation that there's a problem with our credit card? I get that pipes burst and water damage happens (I actually don't know the cause of the water damage), but I was really put off by how it was handled. There was no apology, there was next to no identifying information in the text exchange (I hadn't gotten a text from them before, so I had no idea who the sender was), there was very little explanation of what happened, and there was absolutely no attempt in helping us make other accommodations. Here's the text exchange - Maui Vista Resort (MVR): Hello MVR: Please note unfortunately we will have to cancel your reservation Unit had a water damage and is being fixed Me: Can you confirm who this is? MVR: I'm the owner Me: Of what exactly? We have several reservations for an upcoming trip. MVR: Maui condo Me: Are there no other units available? MVR: No That was it. No apology, no trying to make it right, just curt responses treating me like I was an inconvenience. Since this went down the day before we were supposed to arrive, we had to scramble at the last minute to find a place and ended up spending almost 4 times as much as we had budgeted, because that's all that was available.

    Had a great stay at this place. We were in the second building back and on the top floor facing the ocean. Can’t recall the room number we were in. Was a bit dated but it didn’t matter as it was clean and who cares? Your in Maui! Facility’s were well manicured and cleaned. BBQ areas were clean. Pools are on the smaller side but we’re just fine. Water was warm. The best part about staying here is you can walk across the road to the excellent charley young beach. Good snorkelling here. Usually see some turtles. Would stay here again.

    We really enjoyed our stay here, but I remember wishing there were more reviews, so time to pay it back! PROS: Building 1 is literally across the street from the beach, has excellent views, and took 2 minutes to get to the sand. There is a great sidewalk in Kihei to walk/run for exercise in the morning, or one can walk from Kam 1 to 2 to 3 and beyond on the beach and trails. Each building had a small book swap; I traded out books several times. The landscaping is beautiful. Parking was always available and usually right by the path to our condo. Elevators worked and stairs to get to upper floors was a nice option. Plenty of restaurants and shopping within a 10-15 minutes walk in either direction. Kids enjoyed snorkeling at the Cove, I believe it's called, also within walking distance. CONS: Not much to mention. The buildings look dated, but each condo is individually furnished/updated by the owner. The pools are small, and, when we were there, had lots of kids in the afternoon (not a problem for us but may be for others seeking tranquility). The lanais seem to be on the smaller side, compared to other properties. We would stay here again and felt we had an excellent value for the price paid.

    I love the Maui Vista! Stayed there plenty of times but this time there were 6 of us staying in the condo at the Maui Vista. Still had plenty of room to be very comfortable and the condo had been remodeled with beautiful fixtures. It was so nice staying there and had a great time.
