This light, spacious and airy studio is located in sunny Kihei, just two blocks from a 5 mile long serene white sand beach. Minutes away are many more of Maui’s most beautiful swimming and snorkeling beaches.
The 12 foot ceilings, cool tile floors and plumeria scented tropical breezes make this studio a fresh and relaxing getaway. It is decorated with fine prints from local artists, teak and wicker furniture. Sliding glass doors open onto a garden area in the back, a perfect place for a quiet breakfast. The kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs. There is a king-sized bed in an alcove off the main room, and a fold-out sofa in the living room for additional guests. For larger groups there is also a house available.
We have many recreational extras, like boogie boards, snorkel equipment, ocean kayak, tennis racquets, you fix 'em bikes, beach umbrella, coolers, chairs and other beach gear.
Ann started her first vacation rental in 1993 the small town of Arcata, in Northern California. Over the years she expanded to her home on Maui, and another studio in Arcata.
Her daughters, Elly and Mary, have helped her design, furnish, decorate and manage her vacation homes. When not working on their vacation homes they enjoy traveling, hiking, backpacking, and rafting.
Sharing their vacation homes has been a rewarding experience, with interesting and lively guests from all over the world.
Ann purchased this studio in 1999
We started traveling to Maui around 1990 and discovered for ourselves the amazing, clear turquoise water that was so often calm and tranquil on the south shore. Swimming with turtles, snorkeling and ocean kayaking along the coastline wasn't something we wanted to miss out on. We explored almost every winter, until we found the perfect house in 1999. North Kihei is close to all the great beaches on the South Shore, but also close to get around to Lahaina, Kahului and Iao Valley.
This studio is in a prime location, close to the beach, but tucked back at the end of a long driveway. It feels private, but is only a short walk down to the beach. It has lots of beach gear for you to enjoy!
Ive been meaning to email to THANKYOU for everything- we had a WONDERFUL time and ABSOLUTELY LOVED the house and studio. It was perfect. Everything you need, lots of dishes, utensils, stuff to cook with, lots of towels, bedding, equipment- it was really great. Great location, quiet, convenient! Ive stayed in alot of other places and they have so little which makes having a normal 2 weeks at home tougher. I will most definately will be back and will pass on your wonderful accomodation to whoever asks me about where to stay.
thanks again for all your help and all your communication throughout the last few months.
Many blessings, Mahalo! xx
This is a great base to explore the whole island - close to major crossroads but quietly off in residential neighborhood. Nice walking beach nearby. We were lucky to meet Ann (so nice) during our time there. Thanks!
Maui and AEM Rentals go hand in hand for us. We've rented both the larger upstairs suite and the smaller studio on a number of occassions. Of all our travel accomodations, we've found this rental the most comfortable, the owners genuinely friendly and helpful, and the best value.
Ann and her daughters Elly and Mary have an ideal location in Maui- only 2 blocks from an uncrowded beach, away from the traffic and buisiness of Central Kihei, yet a short drive away to the restaurants and night life. Every evening we walked the beach while the sun went down before returning to our suite to make supper.
Both units are immaculately kept. Its obvious the love and care that have gone into this house. The upper suite has a large veranda that made eating meals with a view to the ocean an absolute pleasure. Its tiled step and foyer and overall design give it a unique style of its own. The kitchen is very well laid out and each bedroom has its own bathroom.
The studio downstairs has a tiled floor and lots of light.The outside washer, dryer and clothesline made beach towels and clothes easy to manage. Ann and the girls have left beach toys for their guests ...I even spotted a pail with sand shovels.
Being able to rent the whole house is also a great option. Last year we went to Maui with friends. They stayed upstairs, we stayed downstairs and we got together for evening meals...perfect.
I have chemical sensitivity and I found this home to be environmentally stable and the owners quite willing to accomodate my cleaning needs. Its been a treasure and has made our visits to Maui in the middle of those 30 below Canadian winters even more memorable. When we have to leave Maui, we are refreshed and relaxed. While a large part of that is the beauty of Maui, the other is this wonderful house and its great owners. We recommend it highly.
