Overview

About the property

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

The BlueRock BeachHouse with private pool and gardens, 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 broad shoulders .

Keywords: Traditional beach house renovated by renown architect and interior designer as a green model of solar living in town .

About Nicole

I am the owner,architect, and interior designer.

Nicole purchased this house in 2004

Why Nicole chose Kihei

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 overpriced for the tourists in Wailea.

Nonetheless, I have remodelled the property with the same materials, and furnishings I use at the exclusive wailea Beach Villas, that command more than 4 times the cost.

I live in a wonderful, professional and local neighborhood where we all have lived for over 10 years.

What makes this house unique

Driving up to your own house with parking, pool, and freedom...is 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 .

The property has potential but needs maintenance

  • 1 of 5

We didn't review initially to give Nicole a chance to address our complaints. But she did not do this and she will probably respond defensively to this review, but we want other potential vacationers to know the truth. If you read other reviews posted, you will find a common theme: The water in the house is a huge issue. As reported by other guests before and after us: The water is either scalding hot or barely warm. The first day we arrived, the washer malfunctioned. The owner immediately ordered a new washer and dryer to be delivered. Should have been done prior to as the machines were ancient and the door on the washer was broken. Later, she blamed us for stopping up the washer. The circuit breaker kept malfunctioning (don't think the electrical can handle the current load on the house) and the owner again blamed that we were using too many appliances at a time. We couldn't regulate the house temperature, constantly too warm... Come to find out, it was being controlled from a nest system and when we tried to cool the house, it got reset. She again tried to blame us for setting the thermostat too low. The pool water was murky and the pool maintenance never got it right. The adults weren't as brave as the kids to swim in it and the kids couldn't use the pool the last day because he shocked it again trying to fix it. Overall, the house needed quite a bit of maintenance...nonfunctioning lights throughout the house...also a light hanging loose in the pool, the yard has potential but needs work. The surrounding neighborhood is very run down, but there were no incidents that we were aware of..it's a bit shocking when you first look around. And finally, a huge disappointment to find that the bedroom layout was misrepresented on the website. We were 2 families, so wanted a house with 2 master bedrooms. She has since changed the pictures, but when we viewed the pictures, it appeared that there were 2 large bedrooms and 2 smaller ones. In fact, there is 1 large master suite and the other ensuite bedroom is so tiny, it doesn't even have room for a chest of drawers or anywhere to store even a suitcase. Suitcases had to store in the room with the green couch. It was disappointing to have planned so long for and traveled so far for a very expensive Hawaiian vacation only to spend so much of it dealing with house issues, allowing maintenance people in and out and then the owner isn't willing to make any concessions for the inconvenience.

Older we’ll kept home that has all you need!

  • 4 of 5

Our over all experience was good here with our family of nine ! The outside of the place took us aback but the inside and yard and pool was great! Nicole was very helpful in proving us with extras that we requested such as high chairs and baby beds! Her place provided beach chairs and toys and floaties for the kids and adults and having a private pool was such a hit with the family, we spent most afternoons playing in it with “Swanee”! Beds were comfortable and towels and bedding very nice, the house is well equipped! Kitchen sink is very high, which was a problem for us shorter folk but the taller ones took that duty over. Not Nicole’s fault but when we first came into her home the house looked clean , but within the hour of being there our socks were dirty and one of the bathrooms had a full garbage container and our little 4 year old had climbed up on the couch and it had shards of glass on it and she cut her foot and knee on it. But after cleaning those things up we really enjoyed the space and property !

Relaxing & Amazing

  • 4 of 5

This property was very suited to our family. It has 4 bedrooms which includes a HUGE master bedroom, bathroom and closet where we were able to set up our granddaughter's bed with ample room. It fit our family of 8 adults *4 couples, one child wonderfully! Nicole was super friendly and helpful, and went out of her way to add extra touches for our stay. The pool was refreshing and we loved the natural look and feel of the backyard. The location was great as it was walking distance to a beach, shops and restaurants. The wifi was an issue as it consistently cut in and out, Nicole did everything possible to help us with this as well, and it did not prove to be a big problem and we worked around it. The house needs some paint and a few touch ups, but overall was quaint, natural, and a well laid out home which had everything we needed for a great stay. We loved it and would recommend Blue Rock Beach House and would definitely return there.

Thank you Nicole!

Beautiful, comfortable, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Nicole’s house was perfect for our travels. We were a party of 8, 3 of those kids. Everyone had fun. The kitchen is perfect for making meals if you’re into that on vacation. The rooms were well lit, had plenty of room, and the bathrooms were conveniently placed. Everything was clean. The backyard and pool were beautiful. The location is within walking distance of Kihei restaurants, a grocery store, the beach, a beautiful beachfront Park, Starbucks, etc.

Some things to be aware of, although entirely doable for the stay:

The water is solar heated so expect very hot showers during the day and cooler ones at night.

The couch is very low. Elderly may have trouble getting up and may need a hand.

The pool is not heated. Many of us thought that was just fine and swam anyway, but we had two kids that didn’t want to swim in the pool. Their loss. 😉

Nicole was very accommodating and helpful. Her office attaches to the main house but is completely private. If we come back to Maui, we will be using this property if it is available.

Owner's Response: You couldn't ask for nicer, or more organized, and iteresting guests to rent your property! Her husband told me they have there own ranchon HomeAway as well, so they were sympathetic extremely pleasant , when I needed to reboot Spectrum quite often during the line upgrade that occurred last week. Luckily during the winter Olympics and flash floods we are unchareacertistically feeling in South Maui, there have been no problems with the internet, and the speed has increased. I look forward to the return of M. family! a hui hou Nicole
