Kihei Bay Vista

Reviewed 28 April 2017

We rented the 1 bedroom condo for 3 days and except for the co-existence with micro-ants living everywhere, even in the micowave, this proved to be a very agreeable place to stay. The unit included all the necessities and conveniences a visitor might need (and want) including extras such as beach boards, pool toys and back-packs for hiking. The washer and dryer made it really unnecessary to have more than one set of clothing; we were careful get rid of the fine sand from the beach before using these appliances.

The complex was right across the street from the Whaling Foundation, and a beach park, where one might see fish jumping out of the water during the morning and witness the sunset in the evening.

The walk to the shopping centers takes about 20 minutes along the two-lane highway which is quite busy with traffic going both ways. The sidewalk ends half of the way to the first, Azeka center, so one should be careful.

The condo we rented was at the edge of the complex with the bedroom facing an empty lot, away from the road. Nice not to be facing another unit. It was on the 2nd floor, at the top of the stairs, easy access if one has minimal luggage like we did.

Parking is available on an open basis with a visitor's sign you need to hang on the visor.

Room Tip: Choose a unit like ours, facing the open lot on the 2nd floor. Park close to the pool to have bette...

This property is located at a good location on S.Kihei Rd near Kalepolepo beach park.
The be was NOT comfortable as its very high. We had to climb. It would have been better if the NORMAL height beds are kept. Other wise Kitchen,living Room are good.We can view Ocean from our Balcony as ours A205 was close to the ocean front.
We spent 5 nights here.

We had a nice stay at the Kihei Bay Vista. It was a return visit and as always we found the unit clean and comfortable. It was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare light meals. The location is great, right across from the ocean and close to shops and restaurants. The pool and hot tub are a big plus for this affordable vacation spot.

Room Tip: The units away from the street are the most quiet.

Stayed in unit B103 and it was perfect for a fair price. We booked 3 nights through Airbnb and everything was as described. The unit was clean, had a full kitchen, and comfy bed and couch. Three beach chairs, 2 boogy boards, and a cooler were in the closet for our use! Woot! Washer and dryer were nice to have. While it is right across the road from a beach, it's not really a selling point. The beach is mediocre compared to the rest of Maui. Location was awesome. A short drive to great beaches, shopping, and dining. My only complaint is that the A/C is a window unit in the living room, so the bedroom was pretty warm. The drain in the tub could use some draino as well. I would definitely stay here again.

Seemed like a good option but after actually staying here I wouldn't recommend it, don't make the same mistake we did! The beach here is crappy compared to other beaches, especially if you want to snorkel. The condo was dirt, sheets were gross, there was body fluid on the top sheet in a very conspicuous region of the comforter. There was black hair all on our pillows we had to pick off ( had me wondering if they even washed the bedding). The bathroom is molded, the water backs up in the tub, kinda gross. Also there is only an air conditioning unit in the main room so the bedroom can get hot at night. There was a full kitchen, nice patio and it had boogy boards, lounge chairs and other supplies for the beach so that was nice. Also there's a washer/dryer so that's nice. But overall we did not like it.
