Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so sad to leave today, we had such a fantastic time in Maui and it was greatly due to the comfort at Pau 'ole Makai. We enjoyed the house so much, we only left to eat lunch and dinner! Also, I can't even begin to tell you how much our daughter loved seeing Drummer everyday...he made the stay that much more special. It was so hard to leave! Thank you so much, Erin. You have been a such a pleasure to work with.

Fabulous stay at an amazing home

  • 5 of 5

You are never sure what to expect the first time you actually see the home you've rented, but I can say with all honesty that Pau 'ole Makai exceeded all my expectations. The moment we entered the gate, we were struck by the beauty, peacefulness and luxurious details of the property. Everything is perfectly situated for indoor/outdoor living and the house accommodated our diverse group (2 teenage girls, a toddler boy, and 2 adult couples) expertly. My husband and toddler and I occupied the master suite...and the King bed is very comfortable and was big enough for all 3 of us (you could also fit a pack n' play or toddler bed, if needed). My sister's family with the teenagers shared the main house with 2 bedrooms that were spaced at opposite ends for complete privacy.The kitchen is lovely and well-appointed with hi-end appliances...and the BBQ/bar area is just steps away outside and with a view of the ocean. We cooked at home and dined on the lanai almost every night. Also, the access to the laundry facilities in the master suite was a necessity for our group.

We spent a lot of time in the pool...the temperature was perfect and the hot tub heated really quickly when we wanted to warm up and relax. My senior parents were staying at a very nice beachfront hotel in Napili and I think they were surprised by the wonderful privacy and luxury that the home provided. They often came by in the afternoon to enjoy our pool and stayed for cocktails and dinner outside. The view from the property is amazing and we were even able to catch a whale breaching and many more spouting water from their blow holes as they went by...and the sunsets were spectacular! The location was perfect too, very close to Old Lahaina and a short drive to other attractions beyond. I totally recommend this property to anyone who enjoys the comforts and privacy of a home (with many added perks like the pool/spa and gorgeous view) while they are on a vacation. It made the whole experience of Maui that much better.

If you want an amazing view, fabulous house and great location - this is the place for you!

  • 5 of 5

Sadly, we just returned today from an eight night stay at this amazing house. Everything was great from start to finish. We were greeted by Alex who was very easy going and let it be known you could contact him for anything. At one point I called just to say we were low on some simple house supplies and they were there that afternoon.

Why stay here? There are a lot of reasons, but the number one is the view! The whale watching from the lanai is unmatched! All day you can sit and watch the activity. Bring binoculars if you have them. It never gets old. Seeing two breach right next to each other was the highlight.

It was my senior parents, boyfriend and myself staying at the house. The master bedroom is set apart front the main house giving a couple extra privacy. All three bedrooms have great views. Both bathrooms are more than what you will need. There are plenty of towels for both showers and pool / beach.

The kitchen has everything you will need. Six burner gas stove, pans, grill, coffee maker, lots of glasses and spices. We stopped at Costco near the airport to stock up on main supplies (coffee, orange juice, bacon, nuts, cheese, ham, crackers, bagels, butter, milk, water, steaks etc.) There are left over spices so don't waste your money on slat and pepper.

I am an animal lover so it was great to have the neighbors dog visit (Drummer). The puppy Mojo was not allowed free reign. My favorite was there little bunny Ping. I would be up early and he would visit around 6:15am and take lettuce from me.

I also enjoyed being up early (not a problem coming from Minnesota to be up around 5:30 - 6:00am) to take a walk each morning. Once you exit the drive way and go right go down the hill, about a half a mile, you will find two path options. Or you can go straight down to the beach. If you take this route it is about a 3 mile round trip route, but you climb about 900 feet back up.

We used the beach chairs to visit local beaches. We did not use the cooler, but it was in great shape. They have a nice TV if you are into that on vacation. We turned it on once.

The location is great. Very close to Lahaina for expeditions, shopping and dining. It was also easy to navigate part of the north loop up to the blow hole. We also easily went to Wailia for golf and dinner. Close to Ka' anapoli for dinner and shopping too.

If you are considering this house - DO IT - you will not be disappointed!

Let me start out by saying, this place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to celebrate my wife’s 50th birthday. With our son and daughter in law coming as well, the space was perfect. The Master bedroom is separate from the house, which was great as my wife and I like getting up early to have our coffee without bothering the kids. Every morning was spent sitting out on the lanai, as well as every evening. The sunsets here are beyond spectacular as well as the ocean views and watching the whales. The kitchen was well stocked and had all the utensils you needed, including everything for the outside barbeque, which we used a lot. With the sliding door in the living room opening up to the beautiful ocean view, we really could have stayed at the house the entire 7 days and would have loved it. Did I also mention there are a pool and a hot tub? The hot tub was very nice after 4 days of golf!

With Lahaina only 4 miles away, it was easy to either drive or catch a cab to some of the best restaurants or shopping on the island. As avid golfers, this house is a perfect retreat to stay and play some of the top courses in the U.S. with Kapalua and Wailea both within 30 miles. The house has everything we needed for the beach, beach towels, beach chairs and even 2 boogie boards. It even has its own pet rabbit who loves carrots, he will take them right out of your hand!

I would highly recommend this house and we will definitely be visiting again. After all of our rentals over the years in the U.S. and our kids even renting abroad, we all agreed, this was the best rental we have ever stayed in.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this beautiful home. The outdoor area was fantastic. Nice hot tub, small pool, plenty of comfortable outdoor furniture to relax on, great grill and a spectacular view. The inside was perfect for our needs. Great kitchen with all the amenities. My only complaint for the kitchen is the dishwasher sucked so we hand washed all dishes and they could use a new coffee pot! Both bedrooms inside the "kitchen/living room" area were good size and the bathroom was nice. The master bedroom was in a separate area away from the "kitchen/living room" space. It was lovely, nice bathroom and washer/dryer. The air conditioning worked great in all areas of the house which was nice cause it was hot! The owner supplied awesome beach chairs, towels, some snorkel gear and a cooler. There were also 2 dogs who stopped by and a cat. We loved having the pets stop in. The caretaker brought us fresh papayas which were delicious. I'd go back to this home if I travel to Maui again.

Beautiful Home in an Exceptional Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family in late March 2014 (4 adults and 2 small children). We have visited Hawaii over 10 times, and stayed in private homes rented through VRBO on almost all of those visits. And I have to say that this is one of our favorite homes. The view is absolutely spectacular, and the layout is ideal for a family with children. The master bedroom, which is removed from the rest of the house, is ideal for privacy. But it is the large lanai that is the selling point of this home. You can truly live both inside and outside here, and there is a beautiful outdoor cooking area. The pool is also perfect for families with kids, as you can easily monitor them from inside the house.

Finally, the location is just outside Lahaina, close enough for town amenities, but far enough away to feel like you are getting away. The neighborhood is clearly one of the best in the area. I only wish we could afford our own vacation home in the area!

I also appreciated the professional rental experience. Everything about the booking and arrival process was just perfect.
