This beautiful beach home made our Maui experience fabulous!
This was my first visit to Hawaii and my first time using VRBO. Our group consisted of my wife and I from Vancouver, our friends (another husband and wife) from Seattle, and my friend from Oakville - all of us are in our late 20's to mid 30's. We also brought along my 63-year old dad. So, needless to say, we had a lot of different people with different needs.
The house suited us almost perfectly. On one side, the 2-bed, 2-bath suite slept 3 of us very comfortably and had a kitchen table that all 6 of us could squeeze around. On the other side, the 1-bed, 1-bath suite accommodated the other 3 just fine with a huge bed in the bedroom and a pull-out sofa in the living room area. Both sides were very well stocked with lots of clean towels. We kept the suites joined the whole time by opening up the adjoining doors. It was actually nice to have 2 kitchens at our disposal because it made it easier to prepare dinner for 6 in a timely fashion.
Outside, there was a very nice BBQ available to us. At first, we tried to start it and there was no propane in the tank. However, the next morning, we let Michael and Cecelia know and they filled it up right away. We cooked lots of great meals at the house and saved a lot of $$$ while having lots of fun doing it! Also, there was a couple of outdoor cabinets that contained a few sporting goods like body boards, snorkel gear, beach mats, bocce set, beach chairs, etc. That really helped us to enjoy the beach even more.
The grounds are beautiful and the location was great. You wouldn't stay here without a rental car, but I think it's pretty much a given that anyone who visits Maui needs a car anyway. If there was one thing we could request to change, it would be to have better wi-fi internet access (it was only accessible from outside the house) but next time we visit, we might bring more people and "upgrade" to one of the other 2 homes on the property.
Overall, VRBO and staying at Michael and Cecelia's home was awesome. I would highly recommend it.
