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!


Association Management Specialist (AMS)

Maui Vista’s General Manager began another level of training in January 2016 and after three association management courses, successfully passed a final exam awarding the additional designation of Association Management Specialist (AMS).  This professional designation is the second highest level of recognition awarded by Community Associations Institute (CAI) to members of the community management profession.

The AMS trademark is awarded only after completion of courses specializing in working with the board on budgets, financial reports, reserve interpretation, assessing structural needs, contractor negotiations, building assessments and maintaining association grounds and common elements.  Obtaining the AMS title follows completion of the Certified Manager of Community Associations, (CMCA) classification and demonstrates a commitment to uphold the highest ethical standards and strict rules of conduct by CAI’s Professional Manager Code of Ethics.
