Endless Options with a Carefree Spirit

My boyfriend and I wanted to experience local Maui without any of the tourist fluff. We initially booked a week, but loved this property so much that we ended up returning multiple times throughout our month-long island stay. The owner, Tammi, offers various options and will work with you to determine what will suite you best. Initially, we were interested in communal living, where we could connect with travelers from all over the world and get recommendations for must-see places. Once we got our bearings (and after we became engaged!), we preferred greater privacy and were provided a more secluded spot. My recommendation is that visitors decide what they wish to get out of their stay – do you always stay at hotels or are you open to a laid-back environment and shared amenities that a hostel would provide. Either way, let Tammi know so she can make appropriate recommendations.
Bonuses of the property: Tammi has a GREAT stash of communal beach equipment such as body-boards and bamboo beach mats (saved us a bundle); the hot tub is very well maintained – great after a long day of walking or surfing; barbeque grill is nice for searing up fresh fish and provides an opportunity to invite other guests to join you; communal internet/computer (although we hardly used it with all there was to do); the location feels remote in that it’s so near the Haleakala mountain but is only a short drive (maybe 15min) to the beach. If you want to wake up and see the mountain from your bed, ask the Tammi about the mountain-view room!
As a side note, I appreciated that the owner is energy conscience and line-dries her towels and sheets, giving them a fresh island scent.
