Perfect house with an amazing garden!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and me spent 4 months in the house, together with our two kids (at age 2 and 4). The house, the garden and the whole place is absolutely outstanding! The shoreline is just 50 meters away, it's perfect for Windsurf, Kite oder SUP, but you can also just take a walk and enjoy the scenery. To Paia it's just a 5 minutes drive...

The house is nice and clean, I recommend it highly for families, but also for couples or just some friends. We and our kids especially loved the garden with all the fruits, I never saw such a garden before.

If you like watersports, you are in heaven: Kanaha is really close and when you are an advanced surfer or sailor, you shouldn't miss Hookipa which is pretty close too.

Last but not least the housekeeper is extremely friendly!

Too bad, that it is so far away from Switzerland... :-)

Perfect beach to wind/kitesurf

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for a week this summer. Large house with a large yard and garden area. The house has everything you need including numerous large beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, board games and a tandem bicycle. Second row house with beach access via an easement, 60 steps from back corner of yard to the sand! Close to the bike path to Kanaha Beach Park and Kitebeach, you can walk to Kanaha Beach about as quickly as you can drive it. All the homes in this area are subject to jet noise, we got used to it but it is loud when the jets takeoff. The single 3:00am departure every night was tough, but the others we got used to. Big house, great beach and perfect location for our vacation, we loved it!

Perfect spot for the sports lover

  • 4 of 5

Really nice beach house. Laid back feel and a great place to relax. We were a group of cyclists and windsurfers so it suited us fine. Windsurfing right out the front meant never having to load gear in and out of a car. And Spreckelsville is a great location to start many of the nice bike rides around Maui.

The house is located very close to the airport so does suffer from noise. We never let it bother us as most of the day we weren't there or were too tired to care. But the occasional overnight flight will almost certainly wake you. For us the location outweighed the inconvenience of the noise. Aside from the air traffic noise, the house is located is a very peaceful, quiet neighbourhood.

A car is necessary staying here as there are no shops nearby. Plenty of nice restaurants 4km down the road in Paia. And a nearby bike path offers a short ride into Kahului.

Overall, a great place to relax, enjoy the beach and everything else north shore Maui has to offer. I'd definitely stay here again.

Family (Reunion) Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at the Banana Plantation for this summer's Family Vacation: my husband & I, along with two grown children, two high-school aged children and my husband's mother, who celebrated her 75th birthday. We had a fantastic time. The pictures give an accurate view of the beautiful lush gardens. The house is spacious; everyone had a bed and there was plenty of space for us all to spread out. The VRBO "ad" mentioned mild noise from airport traffic. It's true - you are near the airport. You will notice some planes take off on the first day or two, but then you quickly do not notice it. If the photos of the Banana Plantation "speak" to you, follow your gut instinct. We did and are so happy we made that decision. January was an excellent hostess and made us feel right at home. We will definitely stay here any time we revisit Maui.

We recommend this site to anyone. Old and young. Couples, large groups. It makes a great home base as you take day trips to explore the island. But also take advantage of the nearly private beach you have access to each day. We enjoyed that as well, in between our adventures exploring the island.

Wonderful Maui vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our New Zealand family stayed at the lovely "Banana Plantation" for a week, and had a wonderful time! The cute house and yard were set up perfectly for our pre and post wedding party activities, with heaps of space and amenities. The whole setting is truly charming, and we of course loved the beautiful private beach. We had some ripping surf sessions, with the big waves all to ourselves! We highly recommend staying here, especially since it's tucked into the best part of Maui (away from tourists), with the rest of Maui so conveniently accessible. Overall, staying here really drew us closer together and we hope to return someday!

Great for a combined (wind)surf family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We visited the Banana Plantation Beach House for a Christmas New Years family vacation; 3 adults, a 12 and 5 year old. The house is very spacious, has a genuine nostalgic feel to it, and is excellently suited for families who enjoy (or like to experience) the life at Maui's North Shore. The kids enjoyed playing in the spacious yard.

A wind/kitesurf beach is directly accessible from the property. It allowed me to go windsurfing and SUPping, while the rest of my family was enjoying the beach, which was also great for longer walks.

Paia city center is a 10 minute drive away, while all the North Shore (wind)surf beaches are within a 20 minute drive.

The host is very friendly and thoughtful. She surprised us with Christmas lights and fresh fruit on several occasions.

We hope to visit this house again!
