What makes this studio unique

The Cabana has its own entrance and private bathroom. The shower is private but open to the stars and palm trees.

It is very quiet and peaceful.

Kihei is small enough that you are just minutes away from beaches, shopping, etc.

Our property is completely fenced and private. Very safe and in a good neighborhood. We've owned the property for over 20 years.

Great little place!

  • 5 of 5

Fit my needs perfectly. I was there alone for a week long job interview. It was the perfect size for one or two people. The outdoor shower was interesting but there was enough privacy to feel comfortable. It was always quiet. The owners live on site and are very friendly. I highly recommend staying here. PS: I got the job!

Quaint and Private

  • 5 of 5

Loved this! Perfect for one, especially as I spent most days away. The unique use of spaces was fantastic. I wanted for nothing. Attention to detail and amenities is amazing. My favorite may have been the outdoor shower below the palm tree. Exquisite in the moonlight! Jeffery was both kind and helpful. Close to beaches, restaurants, shopping and everything you wish to explore. Experience living in Maui rather than visiting Maui.

My second stay was wonderful again

  • 5 of 5

This was my second extended stay here. It was as delightful as the last visit. If you're looking for super privacy and your own mini-home, this is the place for you.

Great cozy place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this place for a week and it was a wonderful experience, absolutely perfect for a single person traveler and I think it would be plenty big for a couple. The place is quite and cozy and separated from the remainder of the property by beautiful vegetation. The outdoor shower is great and the sink/toilet is plenty sufficient and clean. The amenities provided (pots, pan, tv, fridge, single burner cooktop, etc.) were more than I actually needed but came in very handy. The room does not have AC, but even with living in a cold weather climate (MN) and not being used to the heat of HI I found that the wind through the windows and fan was enough to keep it plenty cool at night.

Awesome place at a really great price

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 3 months - one week with my girlfriend. The place is much bigger than I needed. I've been staying in Maui every winter in condo's, but it was much more fun to have my own house in a real neighborhood. It's super private and quiet. The room was plenty big enough for two, at least for a week.

I worked out of the cabana during the day (laptop + external monitor), biked to the beach every night for sunset, Venus (and mercury/mars when visible). I often biked to the beach for a quick lunchtime snorkel. Weekends I did my normal Maui hikes and it was great to come home to the wonderful private outdoor shower. The first question my GF asked was "how is the toilet?" - It's private and behind the Cabana. She loved the place too. Jeff (owner) and his wife are very nice people.
