Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a wonderful stay. As usual the weather was great, but it was still nice to have a comfortable "Home Base" to return to. Our whole extended family will have many treasured moments from this vacation.

Thanks also for all the help in guiding us where & what to do. We alway found enough to do to tire us out each night.

The house was very comfortable and the view was great!

Thanks again - Go Buckeyes!!

Amazing family trip

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 5 kids under 5. This place was awesome. Jim had everything we needed, from cooking utensils and spices to Beach chairs and Beach toys for the kids. We just had to show up and enjoy the vacation. The fruit baskets and pastry deliveries are a great touch. We rented the whole house and it was so much room for us. Kids loved the pool, we loved sitting on the lanai with the ocean view, eating and drinking, definitely helped make the vacation that much better. The location is a nice and quiet area, but close enough to anything we needed, like Foodland, baby beach, other awesome beaches, great restaurants, no problems getting what we needed. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in staying here.

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Three families 12 people. This was our first visit to Maui. Us and two other families and kids. Owner Jim was very helpful in helping us get settled in and gave us a quick tour of the place to get familiar with it. It is close to shopping, golf, several beaches within a few minutes. Having the whole place to ourselves was very nice we could lounge around the pool use jacuzzi and grill out. Had beach toys and towels which was nice. Coming this time of year the whales were every where and can be seen from the deck although its a little ways away it was a nice sight to wake up to in the morning.

Over all experience was a A+ and would definatley rent this again if we return.

Retired and not looking back.

  • 5 of 5

Family of 14, ten days of bliss. Our three grown children and our six grand children had a fantastic time at this rental. It was perfect. We rented the entire place and it fit like a glove ("if it fits you must assist"). Our grand kids spent more time in the pool than out of it. Its spacious, in a very quiet neighborhood and close to down town Lahaina. My wife and I also celebrated are anniversary, we had a wonderful dinner at nearby Merriman's restaurant. Everybody was delighted. Life long memories were made by all. The owner was great and so was the property manager. Thank you Jim and Karen!

Our group LOVED WAIOLA!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home April 10, 2010 after spending 10 glorious days at WAIOLA. We rented the entire property as there was 6 adults, and 7 kids, ages 18mos-16 and we had such an AWESOME time. Your private paradise awaits you and the hosts, Kim and Jim, are there to offer their expertise on just about everything MAUI has to offer. The property was beautiful, clean, close to beaches, shopping, FRONT STREET, and had a beautiful ocean view from the LANAI!!!! We would recommend this private resort to anyone travelling to MAUI !!!!!!!!

Wedding Dreams

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just stayed at this location and we had a wonderful time. It was spacious and had places we could all be together but also privacy in our own rooms. The swimming pool and hot tub was a very nice plus. Kim and Jim were very helpful during out stay. The house was very well located on the island. I definately would stay there again.

Great home for family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 adults and 7 children (most of them toddlers) rented this property for our Thanksgiving week vacation- and it was absolutely perfect! There was a great separation of space to accommodate nap schedules, and enough privacy to allow folks to get away from the central action when necessary. Owners Jim and Kim were such friendly hosts- and though they were on-site in their attached apartment, we saw them only briefly during our stay. They were very helpful with answering questions about local activities, and provided us with guide book information and useful tips for planning outings. The pool and hot tub got a lot of use in between trips to the beaches to snorkel and swim.

Wai Ola is located in a neighborhood of Lahaina- walking distance to a beach, and a nice walk to a shopping center and restaurants. The local bus-line also has a stop within a block of this home- and costs about $1 per ride. The bus can take you to locations up and down the coast and runs frequently. There is also plenty of parking for rental cars. The neighborhood is quiet and secure- we felt very safe.

This property served very nicely as a home-base for our family vacation- and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for clean, comfortable accommodations for a family vacation. If you poke around online, you will find that for the price, this is an amazing option for your next trip to Maui. I recommend it highly, and I am so relieved that we decided to rent this property instead of a few condos or a hotel to house everyone. We saved a lot of $ renting the entire property, and had a great place to stay where everyone could be together. It was absolutely perfect.
