Why Sarah & Dan chose Maui

What makes our vacation studio 'Iki Hale' so special and unique? It's located on the sunny bay side city of Kihei. Our rental lies at the base of the majestic Haleakala volcano, the world's largest dormant volcano, and on the shores of the white sandy beaches of the blue pacific waters. Kihei is a fast growing small island community in the pacific. It lays on the seashore of a large bay (Ma'alaea). The Hawaiian islands are the furthest islands from any land mass in the world. Maui has been voted the best island in the world year after year! All this and being surrounded by 'aloha' makes this place 'Maui...No ka 'oi' (Maui is the best)

What makes this studio unique

We will share our knowledge and 'local insider secrets' about Maui with you! Ask us about where to eat, where to shop, and what is the best things to do!

Simply Perfect...

  • 5 of 5

...for us. My husband and I had such a lovely time staying at Sarah's place for 5 nights. She supplies everything you could possibly need, snorkeling gear, cooler, beach supplies, and the little "home" of ours was comfortable with a great air conditioner, comfortable bed(my husband slept like a baby, which he rarely does), all the supplies we needed for cooking, basically any want we had was covered. I even found tweezers, and an already threaded needle in a darling wood box. Bug spray-check! Sunscreen-check! Lint roller, and on and on and on. Seriously. I always come prepared, but if you find you forgot something... Sarah truly goes above and beyond the call of any other place I've stayed. It is truly an amazing value.

I really like that she has little signs clearly and kindly stating how things work. I'm not clueless, yet I liked knowing how things worked at their place. We washed our clothes, and hung them to dry on a line in the backyard. I like that it was like being at home. I like having everything I need, and I like doing my own thing. Sarah was available if we needed her, in person or by phone. She is such a kind, engaging, and generous woman. Best of all, I always felt safe, and the neighbors were friendly, and waved at us. It was cool to feel like a "local". We also could walk to the beach and watch the sunset. A truly magical thing, and different every night.

Now, if you're someone who likes a big fancy hotel, or a boutique setting, this may not be your cup of tea. If you want a great deal, in a clean, safe place that has everything you could possibly need to have a great time in Maui, that is centrally located, this is for you! I'm snow staying at a fancy hotel for a conference in Wailea, and I miss my little place at Sarah's. Thank you !

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Sarah & Dan's studio rental. The location was perfect and just minutes away from many beautiful beaches to choose from. We stayed in the studio, which was super clean and has a perfect size kitchen for two. Sarah and Dan are so nice and accommodating. The common backyard area is perfect for BBQing or just hanging out in the mornings while watching the little lizards run around the grass in the yard. The studio also offers a washing machine, everything you need to cook in the kitchen and beach accessories for guest to use, so you don't have to buy any. We definitely would recommend staying here, plus the price is so affordable, how could you go wrong.
