About the property

4-Bedrooms , 3.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8 -12)

The BlueRock Beach House with private pool and , was designed for the modern professional family. The home was a model of green construction, utilizing,traditional Hawaiian materials in innovative new ways. The striking gourmet bamboo kitchen was fabricated from recycled material. The solid 2 1/2 lava countertops make reference to the iconic Volcanoes. The coral stone used in the central island and bath rooms is filled with the islands fossils and shells. The stunning hand scraped ipe, or iron wood floors are also reclamed wood. etc. These indigenous materials are juxtaposed with the latest plumbing and applliances to produce a minimal, high tech, yet warm framework to observe the beautiful gardens and nature in the backyard surrounding the pool, with some of the oldest trees, and luscious flowers remaining in South Maui.

Eight people can stay in full size beds with luxury hotel mattresses.

For an additional fee you may add up to 4 more guests with an extra person fee. They can sleep in the italian pull out sofa sleeper located in the master suite or one of the two queen air mattresses that are often placed in the large master closet.

Also there is a folding single nova foam sleeper that is divine, but not recommended for an extra large guests because it is narrow.

About Nicole

I am the owner, architect, and interior designer.

Initially I designed this vacation rental a green model home for traditional Hawaiian homes that required a modern green remodel!

Nicole purchased this house in 2004

Why Nicole chose Maui

This property is so popular because of it's unique location.

It is the only vacation rental property available in the sacred centrally located local neighborhood, where you can walk best places, that are not over priced for the tourists in Wailea. Yet, Nicole has provide the interior style and amenities she uses for her resort clientele who pay considerably more to stay in Wailea, but do not experience the rich culture of her neighborhood!

What makes this house unique

Driving up to your own house with virtually unlimited parking, pool, and so much more relaxed then a resort, or gated property where must constantly show security your clearance, to go back an forth from the same beaches as this house. Also, having the same luxuries as home, like a gourmet kitchen, laundry, in addition to your own pool and BBQ, WIFI, HBO/showtime/IPad docks etcs, make this house a dream without the huge bill at the end of vacation that you dread!

Great time at the Maui beachhouse

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 12 that had a wonderful time for 9 days at Nicole's house. Nicole couldn't be there herself but had assigned a neighbor to help us and he was very responsive and friendly. The house itself is in the best location in a quiet part of Kihei, close to beaches, grocery stores and restaurants. The pool is great but not heated, so perfect for a hot day. We spent a lot of time outside the house anyway, so it didn't matter to us. The house has everything you will need, extra beds, linens, all the towels and beach towels you could need, a well stocked kitchen, parking for 3-4 cars and plenty of space for a large group to hang out. It was a bit tight for 12 people, but we are flexible group. All in all we loved our stay at Nicole's property!

Owner's Response: Sumier was a wonderful and organized guest who could not have been nicer. I am sorry I did not get to meet her on this trip to Maui. I hope she will come back. My housekeeping staff and Jamal my told me that she was extremely clean and neat, which always makes the my team happy as they are paid by the job , not the hour. I like to know that my guests cared for my home, and let me know .

Our Oasis in Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

We are back from our family vacation in Maui, we had a wonderful time and a huge part of the success of our trip was this house and it's incredible location in Kihei. The beds were very comfortable in all 4 bedrooms. The pool was incredible we used it everyday. The BBQ was awesome. The kitchen was well stocked and even had a vitamix blender!! We were walking distance to Starbucks, Boss Frogs, Foodland, restaurants, souvenir shops, and the Beach!!!! The house had a red wagon that my niece loved to ride in to the beach and we used for groceries. Being able to walk everywhere made our vacation even more relaxing. Nicole was great to deal with, she was very friendly and responded to our texts very promptly. I would recommend this place and would love to go back.

Fantastic! We love the BlueRock BeachHouse

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful 10 days at the BlueRock BeachHouse. Pool and yard were lovely, beds so comfy and kitchen well equipped. We had everything we could possibly need. Bbq, beach chairs, & endless beach towels. Three generations of my family had a fantastic time. Beautiful home. We will return. *Nicole you are lovely & fantastic too! Mahalo.

Fabulous home close to everything Kihei has to offer!

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic! Our party of 7 was here for 2 weeks and this place had more than enough room to accommodate everyone comfortably.

The house was very well maintained. The kitchen and appliances were top notch and included everything you could possibly imagine (pots, pans, cutlery, glassware, high end smaller appliances, etc.). There were also a lot of "extras" left behind from prior guests (like spices, plastic bags, etc.) which kept us from having to buy a bunch of extra stuff when we arrived.

The master bedroom was HUGE! Our infant son slept in a playpen (provided by Nicole) in the walk-in closet, while everyone else in our party had their own rooms. We could have easily had 3-4 more people stay in the house with us if need be.

Now the best part - the yard and pool! I always forget that most pools in Maui aren't heated (my parents stayed at a condo complex down the road and their pool wasn't heated either), but once you get over the initial shock of jumping in, we had a blast playing with the kids and floating around in the sun all afternoon. I also didn't realize how rare it was to find a private house with a pool in Maui - and this pool and yard was fantastic for us and the kids to run around and play. The outdoor shower was also a nice treat after a long swim at the house or to come home after spending a day at the beach - we were able to wash everyone off (with warm water) and keep the kids from tracking sand throughout the house.

Nicole was a real pleasure to deal with. Anytime we had questions, she was very quick to respond and/or stop in to help us out. She also had a lot of great suggestions for us for what beaches to check out and where we could get a good deal on rental gear before venturing into the ocean. Thank you Nicole!

Maalea Harbor was a 15 minute drive north; Wailea was a 15 minute drive south; and there were numerous beaches, restaurants and shopping centers within 5-10 minutes of the house that made it easy to get out for a quick trip or an all-day adventure. The grocery store was literally a block away which was nice since we cooked most meals at the house, and there were also a number of restaurants along S. Kihei Road (either walking distance or a short drive) that were top notch.

Overall this was one of the best trips we have ever taken as a family and we can't wait to bring more of the family back in a couple years!

Thanks again Nicole. Mahalo!

Curiouser and Curiouser

  • 3 of 5

We stayed I'm the house for a week and I have to admit it was nicer than expected. It was near the beaches and have us a quiet place to be

That being said, it was uncomfortable having three owner right there. I felt as though we were being chaperoned. You could hear her doing stuff through the walls. I also spent my vacation making sure rules were enforced which meant I didn't get much of a vacation. The shower didn't work correctly which she admitted when we were leaving, water comes in the front door when the sprinklers are on, and I almost hurt myself a couple times thanks to a broken floorboard.

I bought the insurance and am thankful I did. A water bottle leaked creating done bubbles in the dining room table which was discovered before we left and I had no problems paying for. However, when the CSA agent called me to confirm the owner claimed we had done damage to a mattress pad also which I thought odd since no damage was claimed on any sheets. How did we manage to spill something on just the mattress pad? When she contacted me about the damage and asked why I denied the damage she began making derogatory remarks about "gunky band people" and insisted that we had to have done the damage. When I confronted her about it she back-pedaled. I had intended on renting the house again and even suggested it to others but since have decided it's not worth the effort.

My suggestion for anyone renting this house is to take pictures of the house before and after to avoid paying for any damage that you did not do. I wish I had thought to do it so I would be able to provide proof that would have saved me both the hassle and the insults.

Owner's Response: I learned a big lesson about CSA insurance with this guest. I am upset to read this review. As April stated, she told me how much she loved the house when she was checking out late because here entire group were busy smoking in a line up out side my house when I pulled up to prepare the linens for checkout in my office. AT THIS LATE HOUR ,she asked me if she could check out late? APPARENTLY HOUSE RULES LISTED IN THE CONTRACT SHE SIGNED WERE IRRELEVANT TO HER,INCLUDING THE CHECK OUT TIME My cleaning crew was arriving very soon to prepare the house for the next family arriving at 4:00pm the same day. I knew this would be difficult on the cleaning staff and I was shocked to see a line up of 3 smokers against the BlueRock wall chatting and smoking ,when guests are normally packing to be out by check out time. While completing packing, after check out time, April returned to the house to retrieve something in the kitchen, I showed her the pooled water on the dining room table that had blistered the laminate. She said was completely unaware of it, and I told her I would make a claim with CSA insurance that I required at booking.She said “ok”,relieved. Later when she was gone we discovered a large dark pink stain on the mattress pad in bedroom 2. I attempted three times to bleach it, but it did not come out. When filling out the claim for the dining room table I added the mattress pad that had to be replaced.The CSA clams adjuster called me and told me that April admitted she ruined the table but not the mattress pad. So they would not pay for it. I was shocked that CSA said this “the insurance I required was to protect the guest and not me.” So I am not protected at all. When I contacted April to ask here what happened she said I did not do it, and nobody had used the bedroom where the mattress pad was ruined.However, the bedroom was dirty. We certainly had to clean the room and change the linens.April believes I was insulting her instead by calling the band “gunky.” I never used this word, and she won't explain. I do have my office next to the house, but normally sleep at my home in Maui Meadows.When April was at the house for 7 days I was in Oahu at the Pro Bowl for 4 days. I have no idea what occurred in the house, I can only quantify the damages a. I am not sure why she feels “chaperoned”, because she said she had to “police “ the house. Perhaps she should rent a property designated for smokers, and travel with people who don't need to be" policed".
