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!!

Home accommodated our large group of 12 nicely. Enough space for sharing and privacy.

  • 4 of 5

All of our needs were met. A little warm in the main living area of the home but AC in other areas. Good central location.

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 women traveling to Hawaii for the first time. We could not have asked for a better host or better place to stay. Jim was always so kind and helpful and our accommodations were lovely. We rented the entire place so we had access to everything, including the big kitchen, barbecue pits, and wonderful pool. This was a huge place and very easy to get to. We actually walked to the Walgreens and one of the beaches going through the neighborhood. Great place to stay!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I recently returned from a wonderful week at Wai Ola Vacation Paradise. The property was absolutely perfect for us as we each had our own suite for privacy, plus the great kitchen area to get together when we wanted. There are only four of us but the property can easily accommodate 10 more.

As an added bonus, the owner lives on the property, which is nice when you’re a group of women. Jim was always available to answer questions and even helped us arrange some of the outings that we went on. He has thought of everything to make a vacation perfect, right down to the beach chairs, beach towels and ice chests. Each suite is equipped with a coffee maker and even the coffee beans are furnished. The house, and grounds are very well maintained and the pool area, complete with outside grilling area is a great place to relax and enjoy the Maui atmosphere. I highly recommend Wai Ola Vacation Paradise for anyone planning to visit Maui.

Great Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a family trip at the house and it worked out perfectly for us. We each had privacy and the ability to use the pool and shared spaces. The location was very convenient for travel to Lahaina and around the island. We had a great time.

wonderful week in Maui

  • 4 of 5

Family of 10, including an infant, enjoyed the whole house. It fit well into our plans, affording everyone privacy, yet a central couple of social areas. Everyone enjoyed it. The kitchen got quite a workout, lots of meals cooked there. Big enough to handle the task. The owner was on site but not intrusive at all. Very friendly and eager to provide advise and local knowledge.

Easy walk to downtown Lahina, parking on site not a problem. Quiet location, but do expect the unofficial state bird, the Rooster, to begin calling to you very early. Close the window if this bothers you.

The house is a bit on the older side, and there are certainly a few fix up, spruce up items that would improve the overall appearance/appeal of the property. The pool deck could use a refurbish, the deck a coat of paint, and the steps that welcome you from the pool deck to the main level of the house are weather worn for example. But the house was functional and clean, and well worth the price.

Owner's Response: This was an awesome group. Pool deck, steps and main level deck (lanai) are all scheduled for replacement/repair and painting starting May 01. I agree with Scott they are needed fix up, spruce up items. I hope he can return in the near future to see those and other property improvements made this year.
