Our family (2 teens + 2 adults) had a lovely stay at Maui Vista for a week in June. The condo far exceeded our expectations. Each unit is privately rented, so likely will vary quite a bit on the inside (ours was just great); however, the complex itself was wonderful - very well maintained, clean, tropical-resort feel, and very much felt like a vacation destination rather than a complex were locals lived. On arrival we were greeted by a very professional, accommodating and friendly office staff to register and orient us; the grounds are meticulously cleaned and maintained; and there is on-site security at night (not that that is really needed). The 3 pool areas were lovely to relax at and very clean. Pools and BBQ's were cleaned every morning. Charlie Young beach, just across the street, was a very short walk even from the back building (bldg 3) and a lovely white sand beach with good swimming and regular sea turtle sightings. Many restaurants and shops within 15 min walk, as well as Foodland, which is the best place for groceries (way better than Safeway). Makena and it's great snorkeling was only 15 min away. Insider tip - although a bit farther of a walk to the beach, we loved being in bldg 3 as it was quiet and peaceful. Building 1 definitely had a lot of road noise both at the building and pool, much less relaxing!

Our friend paid for us to stay in this condo. It’s walking distance from the beach and several different restaurants. No need for a rental car if you don’t plan to travel around the island. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You have all the amenities you need if you plan to cook your meals. We enjoyed the use of the beach chairs and umbrella. This spot is perfect for your Maui trip.
Maui Vista Unit 1315 or 1-315

Stayed there 4 weeks in Feb. of 2021. This unit has a nice fresh remodel with higher end finishes along with great views!This building is close to the road, so there is some traffic noise till 6:30 PM ,then it subsides .The Maui Vista grounds are kept nicely. Warning ,the gas grills are lousy if you like to grill. In years past this complex always had decent grills,though it seems they have went cheap on the grill stations.
This unit has a Terrible bed (the worst), literally slept on the couch better! Very slow WIFI @ around 1-2mbbs if that is important to you.The stove kept blowing the breaker every time the cooktop and oven were on at the same time .On a positive note, this unit has ac in both the living room and the bedroom. Dual ac units are hard to find in Maui Vista, and are nice after a day at the beach.
In short, if a comfortable bed is important skip this one!
Beware of Renting
Mar 23, 2021
I booked a room at the Maui Vista (Building 1) for a short work trip through the Maui Vista website. Two days beforehand I received a text from the property manager that building 1 was booked and they were moving me to another location. Unfortunately my pre-travel COVID test came back as inconclusive/contaminated and I would need to test again to get the proper documents to enter Hawaii. I did not have time to retest so I had to cancel my reservation. The property manager would not answer the phone but he texted back almost immediately after I hung up. After several texts back and forth he gave me a 50% refund on my pre-paid room. I told him I had no choice due to the COVID testing protocols but he didn't care. Unfortunately I expected a full refund given everything going on with COVID right now and given people are not traveling. This was not the case with Will and he didn't even have the decency to talk to me directly. I was not able to rebook so Maui Vista is enjoying 50% of my money. I told the company I was going to visit on Maui never to recommend this place to anyone visiting Maui unless you are 100% certain you can make it.
Beware of renting through Beach Pros LLC via Booking.com

We cancelled before arrival. My reason for writing this is to warn others about the business practices of Beach Pros LLC, the company managing the unit we reserved. When we rented through Booking.com, the advertisement was very clear: Free cancellation until a certain date, and no prepayment required. But Beach Pros LLC contacted me about a month before arrival saying that if I didn't pay, they wouldn't guarantee my reservation. My mistake for not cancelling then. I paid, then we needed to cancel later, but still within the time allowed. After not receiving a refund for many weeks, I contacted the property managers who demanded to know why we cancelled before they would issue a refund. Since stating a reason for cancellation is not part of "free cancellation", I contacted Booking.com directly, and they were able to get all the funds returned except for a $55 "credit card fee". And since a missing $55 is also not "free cancellation", I continued to work with Booking.com to recover all the funds. Today, about two months after the cancellation, Booking.com issued a credit themselves. The management company never paid.
