Aloha Guests, After flying around the world, staying in first-class hotels, teaching first class service and being in the customer service industry for many years, The MauiJOY Villa received 100% unanimous approval vote at a Public Hearing in front of the Maui Planning Commission. I am looking forward to extending the Island of Maui's 'Aloha' to you. I am MauiJOY because I live on Maui and have been called 'JOY' in many of the Happiness classes I have taken. I am MauiJOY on backgammon sites as it is one of my favorite games to play. I am MauiJOY on Facebook and Twitter too. I am the owner and State of Hawaii licensed broker of my own small company in real estate called, International Real Estate Services, LLC. Traveling on my own, I have gone around the world visiting many places including Japan, Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, India, (Burma), Nepal, Myanmar, Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, South America, Europe and South America. So much to see and do yet Maui is my home sweet home and I would love to share it with you.
MauiJOY purchased this House in 1994
Why MauiJOY chose Kihei
I purchased this home because of it's ocean views and location away from everything yet close enough to get to it all (Resorts, golf, restaurants, shopping including the best beaches in the world in about 3 minutes by car. We are up a hill so that is why I say "car".) The views are probably the best in the area as the location is on the edge of the neighborhood with thousands of acres of vacant land adjacent to the lower gardens. It's quiet, with peaceful tranquility and a place to truly relax and let go. Maui County noise ordinances are very strict. No noise after 9PM to 8AM.
What makes this House unique
Would you like to pamper yourselves with a private chef, massages poolside, aromatherapy, 10-day detoxing, private consierge services? Happy to arrange for a private boat (whale watch), concert tickets and will do our best to help to create the vacation you have painted in your mind and heart. You may not want to leave the MauiJOY Villa as the large swimming pool overlooks the vast ocean from the West Maui Mountains, across to the island of Lana'i, Molokini Crater, Kahoolawe and up to Haleakala. There are few street lights in this area providing the most amazing views of the vast night sky. We have a green uplight just above the driveway so you will know where to pull in at night. The views of the Milky Way are brilliant! I use "Sky Guide" app as we can see and learn so much about our universe. I also have a telescope! The full moon reflecting in the pool provides romantic lighting while the fragrant flowers fill the air with their perfume. Yes, this is paradise and it can be yours. I look forward to your visit, Mahalo Nui Loa, MauiJOY Teri

Amazing Romantic Getaway
Two things make this property amazing: the view and the communication with the Owner. While we understand from other reviews that families like this property too we must say that as a newly married couple seeking some alone time this was a magnificent stay. The pool overlooks a private backyard and there are no neighbors on either side who have visibility into the property - so it is like you are on your own little island on an island. The grounds are beautiful and private. There is A/C which is great for the warm afternoons and a fully stocked kitchen with all tools needed. We will gladly stay here again.
Mahalo for your compliments!
I am so happy to hear that you will be returning! You left the place almost as if no one had stayed here. I didn't even hear your music at the pool and you had your own speaker too! Glad you enjoyed the privacy. I too love it that no one can really see into the property as the Arica palms and banana trees hide the pool area from the uphill neighbors. Happy to have had fresh bananas and tangerines right off the tree for you while you were here.
Mahalo also for the addition to the chair and beach umbrella collection. I hope your relaxing vacation has recharged you both and that the island "Aloha" will stay with you until we meet again.
Great location. Beautiful interior. Owner stays on property.
The County of Maui requires that the owner live on property. Most guests are not bothered by that fact as they rarely see me, and I am here in case anything goes amiss or if they need some assistance rather than properties where no one is around and things go wrong and you can't get help.
Communication is key, and I think we got off to a wrong start when you did not communicate before your arrival to me that you have two mentally challanged very active young boys. In the future it would be great to know by any owner so we can have the opportunity to remove fragile or valuable antiques etc. I was around a little more as I wanted to be available in case you needed help of any kind. Regardless, I believe you all had a very good time, or at least that is what you said and said also that you would return. The boys hugged me with tears in their eyes, saying they would miss me too and my heart broke open even further. I think this 3 star rating is a low but that is how some people respond to a place that is not the Four Seasons. This week, the new indoor/outdoor carpeting will be installed and I am excited for this long overdue upgrade too.
Mahalo for your taking the time out of your very busy schedule to write this review. MauiJOY
Maui Joy Villa made our vacation absolutely perfect! When we weren't out exploring the island, shopping, or snorkeling, This beautiful house was a relaxing respite from all our activities. It was exceptionally clean and well appointed with everything we could possibly have needed. The lushness of the gardens were truly a wonderful and constant background to this gem of an oasis. And the views? All I can say is, how can you beat views of the mountains behind, and the ocean in front?!?! Teri was always there, answering any questions we had, quickly and thoroughly. And all the little daily things she did, such as leaving fresh mangos for us, meant a lot! Teri's home is a true oasis. My husband, 16 year old daughter and her cousin stayed. The girls absolutely loved it at Maui Joy and on the island of Maui. We all enjoyed ten days of pure bliss, staying at the Maui Joy Villa!
Wow! Mahalo (Thank you) for this fantastic review! The mangoes were perfectly ripe for your visit and the girls had their first taste of bananas cut from the tree too. No more cardboard bananas for you! LOL
So happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return visit. <3
Loved this place!
Never had such an experience like waking up to birds and cows along with fresh mangoes and bananas picked daily from the property. Great pool and seclusion from neighbors. Would gladly stay again!
Aloha and Mahalo for your review. The cows are not here all the time and have been brought in by the adjacent neighbor property to control the tall grasses. I love hearing them mooooo. You were here at the perfect time as bananas and mangoes were ready to be picked. We have a variety of organic non-sprayed, no chemical fertilizer fruits of mango, papaya, guava, strawberry guava, tangerines, oranges, and bananas that are available for our guests. I am guessing that the 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the indoor/outdoor carpet that is worn and will soon be replaced. Mahalo and I look forward to seeing you all again at The MauiJOY Villa,
We booked a last minute vacation to Maui and were very fortunate that this property was available. Luckily for us a previous booking had to be cancelled and we were able to scoop up this place before anyone else could. We were traveling with small children and the layout of the house, the pool, and the location of the property really drew us in. We fell in love with the property the very minute we arrived. Teri greeted us with the warmest of welcomes. She showed us everything we needed to know and also gave us local insights to beaches, activities, and restaurants. We now feel like she is a part of our family and my children continue to talk about her and miss her dearly. We hope to get back to Maui again one day and we will contact Teri directly about staying here again! Fabulous experience!
Five little ones under 7 years of age and all so precious. They were so generous with lot of hugs, laughter and delight! I was so impressed with everyone as you, the parents were easy going, yet all was in order. Kids in car, off to the beach, or in the pool, you had it handled so well. I am so happy that it worked out for you all and I too miss them...give them all BIG HUGS from Miss Teri. Mahalo for leaving the place is such good condition too!
We have an information book here on property and a guest book filled with all of the special places around for your best vacation ever.
