We own a beautiful, charming, very spacious, 3-bedroom Polynesian Pole Home conveniently located above Wailea/Kihei, in the residential subdivision, Maui Meadows, with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, the Wailea/Kihei coastline, the Maalaeaa Bay, West Maui Mountains, and the neighboring islands of Lanai, Molokai, Molokini and Kahoolawie.

Unfortunately the current photo's we have on our website do not do it justice at all, but our Hidden Hawaiian Gem property, is perfect, for your self catering Maui vacation away from the crowds, which are found in hotels & condo's, but situated within two to three minutes of all amenities of South Maui, including all of the top beaches, shops, restaurants, and the stunning facilities of Wailea & Makena. Which include, world class golf at it's finest !

This spacious, modern home is highlighted by its gorgeous open beam, full wood character, all naturally finished, open wood ceiling throughout, giant structural beams and poles, large, panoramic viewing windows, with sliding glass doors in all rooms, which open onto a very large wrap around patio/deck with seating, sunbathing, barbacueing, and Jaccuzzi. The entire patio/deck has a very large roof overhang for afternoon shade, and over looks the Wailea/Kihei bay, creating a warm, welcoming, homely, atmosphere.

Our home has recently undergone a complete remodel/modernization of the bathrooms and kitchen and has been very tastefully decorated with Hawaiian island theme décor, very comfortable furniture, and various floral arrangements.

Kitchen/Living Area

The kitchen is built entirely of Maui Koa wood. The wood was harvested from Kaupo Ranch on Maui, and the cabinets and bar top, were hand crafted and custom made right here on Maui. You will only find this Maui Koa wood in our home and, one other home on Maui, no one else has it.

The unique features of this Koa wood (compared with other Koa woods grown elsewhere) is it's combination of dark & blond streaks, giving it's, beautiful character only found in Maui Koa wood.

The kitchen is FULLY appointed & equipped with everything you will need for cooking and entertaining during your vacation.

The Kitchen is very spacious, and the facilities include side by side, full size, refrigerator and freezer with ice maker, a gorgeous Italian, 5 burner gas cooktop & gas oven, full size dishwasher, trash compactor and all pots, pans, dishes, and cutlery you will need.

We have been told by guests our kitchen is well stocked compared with other places they have stayed, with everything a person needs for cooking and entertaining. We encourage our guests to let us know if there is something missing from the kitchen, they may need during their stay, this way we can equip our home to be as comfortable as possible while our guest's are "Home Away" from home.

For formal dining, there is a huge Travertine stone Italian dining table with a very heavy/thick 4' x 8' sollid glass surface top which seats eight.

Overlooking the kitchen, there is a Maui Koa wood bar top, which seats three.

The living area is furnished with a, very comfortable, L shaped sectional sofa, and numerous other comfortable individual seats and a recliner electric massage chair. The main floor has polished, solid oak wood floors, while the bedrooms have plush white carpeting. There is a 54 inch flat screen TV with cable, DVD player, and wireless internet. The home has a washer and gas dryer.

Bedrooms/Bath Area

The VERY comfy bedrooms are equipped with plush king size beds & bed linen, night stands, and mirrored closets. Each bedroom is kept cool with their own air-conditioning units and TV. We have had many guest's comment on how comfortable our beds are, and ask what brand, so they can buy one themselves.

Our large master bedroom has a raised wooden platform for the Cal King bed, which adds its own unique character.

The master bathroom is appointed with beautiful neutral colored, Travertine Stone tile, with contrasting black & white stone marble counter tops. It has huge open shower, with a glass block window to let natural light in and, accommodates, two, "his & her's" shower heads. There and two wash sinks, a toilet, and European bidet. The bathroom also has a mirrored "one way" glass window, so you can see out, at the gorgeous view, while people on the patio/deck can't see in.

The second bathroom is gorgeous too, it has very large single shower, a toilet, two sinks with a beautiful rose colored, stone marble countertop.

Outside Deck Area:

Relax & enjoy sunset cocktails as the sun slowly makes it's way over the horizon of the Pacific Ocean, dine outside under the stars, over looking the Pacific Ocean & the night lights of Wailea, Kihei & Maalaea Bay, all on the very spacious, open wooden patio/deck, equipped with Gas Tiki Torches, a 4 burner, propane BBQ with rotisserie, there is a casual dining table with seating for 6, all, perfect for entertaining or relaxing & soaking in the gorgeous view.

The patio/deck also has a wooden porch swing which, seats 3 and numerous sun loungers. A private Hot Springs Grande hot tub/Jacuzzi is also on the deck, which seats 8 people for you to enjoy under the stars. And all over look the Pacific Ocean :)

(Holiday - Undecorated artificial Christmas tree available upon request)

We allow smoking on the property, but, NO SMOKING INDOORS....smoking is ONLY permitted outside.

FYI ... This is not our only vacation rental home on Maui and we allow smoking on our other property too. In 4 years of renting vacation properties to, "outside only smokers" we have never had an issue, or complaint from a "non smoker" guest, about smoke residue inside our house's or on the furniture. We are non smokers ourselves, so we would be the first to spot any issue's with "smoke residue" ... If there ever were an issue, we would not allow smoking on our property. We can assure you; If you are a "non smoker" and would like to rent our property, you will have no issue with previous "smoking guest's"

About Stewart & Andrea

Aloha we are Stewart & Andrea,

Welcome to our "Beautiful Maui Home"

Our Hidden Hawaiian Gem property, is our home, and our Maui "Pride & Joy". We are opening it up to you, our guest, to enjoy too; We believe you will truly, love our property, and it's gorgeous location.

We purchased our property in 1988 and built this beautiful home in 1989. With many years of hard work and perseverance, we have finally been able build and create this beautiful vacation rental property, which we share with other folks like you, who appreciate the finer things in life.

Our property was originally designed and built by Maui's own, Polynesian Pole Homes Inc. The conceptional design of Polynesian Pole Homes, was created to fit the steep hillside properties found on Maui, minimizing the need for extensive, expensive, grading and earth moving.

Although our Polynesian Pole Home is built on a flat lot, (not a hillside) it retains the structural character, and beautiful exposed natural woods it's designer intended for these homes, all coupled with an extensive open floor plan and gorgeous Ocean views from every room, truly makes it, "Our Paradise" and our "Beautiful Maui Home".

No matter where you choose to stay on Maui; We sincerely, hope you will enjoy your Maui vacation and the place you choose to stay; But especially, if you choose to stay in our "Beautiful Maui Home" !

Aloha, Stewart & Andrea :=)

Stewart & Andrea purchased this house in 1989

Why Stewart & Andrea chose Maui

This high quality, very well appointed home, is located in a very quiet neighborhood and is perfect for the vacationing family or couples that like to get a way from the crowds, have the ability to be able to provide their own dining, but also like to be close world class restaurant's, best beaches all the shops, golf & many more vacationing amenities the Island has to offer. The home is extremely spacious and is full of character and Hawaiian charm, all accompanied by the absolutely, stunning vista's of the Pacific Ocean and gorgeous, evening sunsets. It is truly a perfect "Home-Away-From-Home" location, for your Maui vacation :)

The property is located 20 mins from the airport in the southern part of Kihei, in a quiet residential subdivision bordering Wailea and 2-3 minutes drive, (approx 3/4 mile) from the beautiful white sandy beach of Keawakapu, considered (by locals) one of Maui’s best & safest swimming beaches on Maui.

From December thru April, you will be able to whale-watch from the beach and with binoculars (provided) from our patio, grocery stores & much more are a 3-5min drive from the house.

The property is located 600ft above sea level, well above the tsunami zone - There are no midnight evacuations here due to tsunami flood warnings, as you would find at the lower elevations closer to sea level .. A tsunami warning may or may not occur during your stay on Maui, but if it does, they are not much fun if you get evacuated at midnight out of your hotel or condo because you are staying within the coastal tsunami zone ?

The property gets a gentle trade wind breeze in the late morning/afternoon, unlike properties closer to the ocean, which catch the full brunt of the daily winds & can make the day, quite uncomfortable.

The glass doors lead to the sun deck & Jacuzzi , with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean to greet you. The sun deck is surrounded by, Hawaiian gas Tiki Torches , has a beautiful round glass table, seats 6, porch swing, & barbecue.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of this home abound you as you walk thru the front door, you are immediately greeted with the stunning panaramic view of the Pacific Ocean ahead, every room in this home has an ocean view, including the bathrooms.

The entire home is constructed with a combination of naturally finished woods including, pine, douglas fir, spruce, oak and our favorite; The Maui Koa, which is only found in our home and one other on Maui.

The bathrooms are beautifully appointed, with a combination of natural stones and marble.

All bedrooms in the house have an ocean view and are appointed with very comfortable Cal King beds. The Master bedroom has its own bathroom, bedrooms 2&3 share their own bathroom.

Our kitchen is built for Maui Koa wood and is very well appointed, it is suitable for any gourmet chef to use. A Kitchen this well appointed, is very rare to find in a vacation rental property.

Our dining table seats 8 spaciously, but we have had 12 guests dine comfortable around it.

Whether you prefer to sit & relax on the porch swing watching the sun slip away over the horizon of the Pacific Ocean, or like to be the gourmet cook in the kitchen, and watch the sun slip away over the horizon of the Pacific Ocean, this home is perfect for all tastes, and for the perfect for any Maui vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stewart & Andrea

You were such gracious hosts, thank you !! Staying at your Maui Paradise is by far the best experience we have ever had, and we have been to quite a few. We regularly rent vacation homes via HomeAway or VRBO so we feel we are good "comparison judges".

The accommodations you have at your Hidden Hawaiian Gem property were 1st class, extremely clean, comfortable, and spacious along with a great kitchen, which amazed us, to be fully stocked (as our home is) with pots, pans, silverware, dishes & glassware. Having a multiple variety of great beaches to choose from within minutes from the house and all local amenities such as, grocery stores, restaurant's golf, and visitor attractions are equally accessible, your property is in such a great island location for everything. And, wow, the gorgeous views from your property of the coastline & bay ; Ever changing as the day passes to beautiful evening sunsets , it just took our breath away, and provides you with the true spirit of Hawaii, we are so glad we found your property.

Again thank you, for providing such a beautiful Hawaiian experience, we are already planning for vacation dates for 2016 and we will definitely be back again !!

Hidden Hawaiian Island Gem
average rating of 4.8 based on 31 reviews

Beautiful, peaceful, comfortable - perfect for a family or couples getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Hidden Gem in Maui for my parents 40th anniversary. Our party included my parents, myself and my husband, and my brother. The property delivers as promised plus more and felt like we were in our own private paradise with gorgeous ocean views and beautiful as well as comfortable amenities. This rental is perfect for multiple couples / families who want to rent a car and explore the island, while having a quiet, comfortable, and gorgeous place to relax in the mornings and evenings. Eating on the wrap around patio while watching the sunset, or enjoying coffee with the morning birds was definitely a highlight. We were a close drive to everything we wanted to see / do and enjoyed relaxing at the house as much as we did the exploring. We will be back and definitely give it full marks! Thanks Stewart and Andrea!

The house was huge, with plenty of room for everyone and had a spectacular view.

  • 5 of 5

The house was huge, the deck was amazingly large with a spectacular view. There were a few minor issues that the owner quickly set to right. The house was clean, the beds, especially the master were very comfortable. Lots of shopping and restaurants near by and if your up for a drive lots to see and do all along the coast line.

  • 5 of 5

We visited this home with our two adult children and their spouses. The home was beautifully furnished with everything three adult couples could possibly need. All three bedrooms had plenty of room, closet space, and accommodations. Bathrooms were big enough - kitchen had all the necessities - and then some. We were visiting over Thanksgiving and even found a gravy boat! The deck provided excellent relaxation time - both for breakfast watching the water and at sunset for a quiet cocktail. The hot tub was a nice extra to have. We were a quick 10 minutes from the beach with all the chairs, coolers, boogie boards and other fun items available as part of the rental.

Stewart and Andrea were ultra responsive - providing anything we needed for the house as well as recommendations on the luau we should go to, best beaches, and other local knowledge.

We couldn't have asked for a better location, property or owners to make our Maui vacation unforgettable.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Despite raining every day of our stay, we still had a great time in this house. Could use some minor updates, but all things considered, a great place in a great location. Loved the porch, grill, and open air vibe. Will definitely return again!

“Wow” is the comment used to best describe this vacation beauty upon entering the main door. It has been two years since we were last here, and this spacious pole house located in a quiet residential neighborhood is even more lovely than remembered. Many new additions, including living room furniture, spacious dining room table, smart TV’s in all the rooms, gas stove and patio grill, which got plenty of use. There were six adults and this house easily accommodated our group. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking and serving pieces. All beds were very comfortable. Lots of beach chairs, umbrellas, noodles and boogie boards for use at the beach. Mother Nature provided great weather, beautiful stars at night and birds to awaken us each day. The sunsets, simply put, were spectacular. After a day at of activities, we always looked forward to returning for our private Happy Hour on the patio. A big thank you to owners Stewart and Andrea for taking care of the many details that make for a special vacation. We look forward to returning again when possible.
