SUDS in 1ST FLOOR UNIT
Please remind your guests to use “only” LOW SUDS LAUNDRY SOAP in your washing machines. Recently, we’ve had a number of guests either using regular detergent OR too much of the low suds soap resulting in 1st floor unit toilets to bubble and soap suds developing.
The office has 2 low suds pods available for $1.00 for your guests to use.
An owner offered this photo sample showing suds do surface in the 1st floor units when the wrong detergent is used:
As this is an ongoing problem, please take steps to remind all guests of this problem and to be aware that unit washing machines are technically smaller than their machines at home so less soap is advised.
Mahalo from all 1st floor owners!
MOISTURE ALARMS – A SOLUTION?
Many owners, cleaners and agents have found wet sheetrock and/or wet spots on their walls resulting in finding leaks. An owner purchased a moisture alarm and has recommended that we share this information with you and a potential early detection of leaks.
Moisture alarms placed in strategic areas such as under your kitchen and bathroom sinks, refrigerator, hot water tank area, and under dishwashers may 1) detect leaks before they cause costly water damage; 2) detects moisture before mold can grow; and 3) is an inexpensive safeguard where water or moisture can collect.
There are a number of moisture alarms available on the market (see website link) and they can be found on Home Depot, Lowe’s, or online at Amazon. Some have alarms that sound when moisture is detected, some more expensive high tech systems can text the owner to notify you when moisture is detected.
Note: Keep in mind that although a water alarm will save you the chore of looking for leaks under sinks and in out of the way places you’ll still need to check on the leak detector(s) periodically to be sure they are working properly.

Maui Vista Parking Lot Management Policy
|Maui Vista’s main lot has approximately 280 parking spaces.
Maui Vista has 280 condos, therefore the policy of one condo, one parking space.
Owners, who have renters/guests who bring a vehicle and occupy their condos, must remove their personal vehicle from the main lot prior to their tenant/visitor/guest taking residency*.
There are approximately 35 additional parking spaces in the back, and these spaces are available for rent to owners and long-term tenants/guests (residing at MV for >6months a year) who have an additional vehicles.
Guests with a 2nd vehicle or tenants with visitors and/or sleep over guests will receive temporary parking documentation from the front office for a fee of $20 up to 7 days. A 2nd vehicle on property longer than 7 days will be charged $35.00 for parking.
Owners and Long Term Tenant’s authorization to park (stickers available at the front office)
|Green||Free main lot parking for active cars only. Owners who leave their condos vacant while away from Maui Vista, and/or cover their vehicle for storage, must be parked at the north facing east end of the main lot.|
|Red||For reserved parking in the back lot only.
The few numbered spaces in the back may be reserved by owners/tenants on a first-come, as-available basis for a $35.00 monthly fee or a $360.00 per calendar year fee paid by 31 January for the entire year.
Owners who use only a portion of the year are to be charged the regular rate of $35.00 per month.
|Both Red and Green||Owners who pay for a reserved space, have one vehicle and do not rent their units, may park in either the reserved or main parking lot in either high or low season.|
|Red or Green||Owners who live here part time and rent their condo when they are not here, must rent a reserve space for their vehicle when they leave.
Their green sticker needs to be exchanged for a red one (and they will be billed monthly for the reserved space rental).
Owners with more than one vehicle: a green sticker will be issued to one vehicle for the main parking area, and a red sticker issued for any additional vehicle(s) (which must be parked in a reserved space during high season). Owners will decide which car/s will have the red sticker and they will pay for a reserved parking space for each. During low season (April 16 to October 15) vehicles with red tags that would normally be parked in the back may use the main lot. The “extra vehicle fee” of $35.00 per month must still be paid.
Hierarchy of renting a reserved parking space:
- Owners’ first vehicle (top priority, space is reserved for as long as the owner pays for and maintains it).
- Owners’ second vehicle (second priority, space is reserved for as long as the owner pays for and maintains it).
- Tenants’ second vehicle (third priority, space is reserved for as long as the tenant pays for and maintains it).
- Owners’ third vehicle (space is rented month to month, meaning this vehicle can be removed after a 2 week notice) but not before a number 5 priority vehicle
- Tenants’ third vehicle (space is rented month to month meaning this vehicle can be removed after a two week notice)
If the reserved lot is full, and an owner or tenant needs to rent a space for his second vehicle, the most recent rental to a number 5 level rental will need to surrender his space after a two week notification.
If there is no number 5 candidate, move up to number four. Once these number 4 and 5 priority rentals have been cycled out, candidate renters may sign a waiting list for the next available space.
Maui Vista Parking Lot Access
|Maui Fire Department requires 20’ of roadway to access our property. On occasion, Maui Vista has contractors, plumbers, carpet cleaners and delivery vendors parking in various locations protruding into the parking lot area.
Our parking lot access width measures over the required 20 feet. Large or long vehicles belonging to the various contractors are recognized to be temporary and on property a minimal amount of time. These vehicles will be allowed to park on property between the hours of 8am to 6pm.
Should an owner or guest have a large/long vehicle that will be on property permanently, the office will direct them to park at the East end of the parking lot facing North.
