About Kristin Holmes

Our family; my brothers and their wives own this delightful property together. Each of us appreciates the quality, character and the sense of place that is evoked from this property.

Kristin Holmes purchased this house in 2011

Why Kristin Holmes chose Kihei

Our family has roots on Maui dating to 1883. This home and the setting captures an era that speaks to us in a way that you can only experience. It reminds us of the carefree lifestyle associated with the islands.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite comment is that you'll feel like you live here...even it if is just for a short time. We love it when our guests share how much they appreciate staying in a home rather than a condo. We like to think of it as "your home on Maui."

Guestbook comments from the manager

I had the pleasure of spending four days at this lovely home in Kihei. Beautifully furnished and decorated, it was also very clean, comfortable and relaxing. It was close to the beach and to tons of restaurants, grocery stores and shops. I stayed in the blue bedroom with twin beds, which were very comfortable. It had a huge closet, and a private outdoor area for relaxing and unwinding. My only regretis that I didn't have time to use the hot tub! I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends who are interested in visiting Maui. It would be a great option for a group of friends or a family to stay at.

Amazing Facility, Average On-Site Management

  • 3 of 5

I rented the main house and cottage for my stay in Kihei (my friends rented the studio). The entire facility was nothing short but amazing! It was perfect for a large group. Everything was close together and intimate. The only thing I wish was different was the lack of main house air conditioning. There were only ceiling fans and it got very warm throughout the entire house. I can only imagine what it's like in the dead of summer.

Rating for the facility: 4 out of 5 stars

On-Site management.

I was locked out of the cottage because the ONLY unlockable door's keylock was low on battery. I called Kristen who sent someone to let us in.

This is where my major complaints occur.

While waiting for the on-site manager to arrive, I observed a young female adult walk into the detached garage. Unsure of who she was I walked to the garage to investigate. As I approached the garage, the young female walked out of the garage and past me without saying a single word.

I then saw another female adult (later identified as the on-site manager) walk around the garage. Unsure of who was who I asked her who just walked out of the garage. Her attitude filled response was, "That's my daughter. Do you have a problem with that?" I introduced myself to the on-site manager who advised me she was there to let us into the cottage. She unlocked the door and changed the keylock battery.

EVERYDAY after that random people would show up at the house and they would NEVER introduce themselves. We were also never advised that someone would be arriving at the house.

On the last day at the house at approximately 9am, my 11 year old niece ran up to me scared. She advised me she was looking for her volleyball and saw a man in the garage. I walked to the garage to investigate. I asked him if he was supposed to be there. I was advised that he worked for The rental property and was told to fix the bicycles for the next guests.

I did not like how many people would freely walk in and out of the facility without advising me. If they had to fix something or whatever, it's common courtesy to advise the renters that someone would be arriving on site. Instead I was constantly looking over my shoulder for someone to walk in or out of the facility. I felt my privacy was invaded constantly. The majority of my family had made similar comments and dislike.

On-Site management: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Plantation Bungalows

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Plantation Bungalows. There were nine of us (6 adults, 3 children) in the main cottage and studio and were very comfortable. The nearby beaches gave us great access to the warm Hawaii surf especially with the use of the equipment supplied by our hosts. We hope to be take advantage of the accommodation again in the near future and highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing visit to Maui.

Exceptional Find!

  • 5 of 5

What a quaint amazing rental in Kihei! This property is perfect for families or a group of friends, the three bedrooms easily accommodate up to 6 adults easily. The kitchen is full size, which we enjoyed and were able to save $$ by preparing the majority of meals at the house. The property manager was delightful to work with and was very responsive to any questions or concerns we may have had, and even checked with us to make sure everything was just perfect, which it was!!
