We had a great time staying in the house. It was a very convenient location, and we were able to get to the things we wanted to do easily. It was comfortable and perfect for our family of 2 adults and a teenager. Sleeping at night was really a treat, you could hear the waves from across the street and smell the sweet mango tree right outside of the bedroom window.

We stayed in and cooked most nights, the grill was so nice to have, we even had our friend that lives in Maui over for a couple of meals.

Would love to come again.

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay in Maui, the owner was very helpful. It would have been easier having a second bathroom (This was under construction and looks to be finished soon). We stayed during the hot weather season in Maui so not having AC in all the rooms would have been nice in the evenings, having AC in the main area was helpful even though most our time was spent on the beaches. Overall for the price I thought this was a good value for a busy on the go family.

Very nice place, but some "truth in advertising" issues.

  • 4 of 5

Quaint little home with plenty of room for a medium size group 5-8. "Air Conditioning" is a single wall unit in the living room that runs off of solar panels and a timer. It ran from about 10AM to 10 PM. On a hot, humid day it is only capable of lowering the temperature in the living room...that's all. Fans are present in all three bedrooms. There is only one bathroom. There is an outdoor shower head nozzle that's connected to a garden hose...this should hardly be considered a bathroom. Four months ago we were assured that the second bathroom (under construction) would be ready. It is not, nor does it look close. So, this is a one bathroom facility. There is a washer and dryer available for use, but the dryer is coin-operated so bring quarters. Nicely stocked with pots, pans, dishes, blender, towels, etc. Good location. Across the street from the beach. A wall and sand dune separates the house from the ocean, so don't get the impression that you can view the sunset from the lanai. Barbecue available for use, fire pit, and a variety of chairs, beach/snorkel equipment are available for use. There's a picture of a kayak on the VRBO site, but there is no kayak on site. Nicely private from neighbors because of the wall. Very safe for families with young children. I would use this facility again.

This is a comfortable beach house in a wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this home, which is across the street from a beautiful beach where we enjoyed sunsets and swimming. The house is walkable to wonderful shaved ice and a great little bakery. It is a good location to get around the island - only 20 minutes to the airport - convenient to go to Lahaina, downtown Kihei, upcountry and southern beaches. The house is simple and well maintained.

We were surprised that the air conditioning only runs during the daytime and evening hours. Sometimes, we had trouble reaching the owner or hearing back from him.

Our overall experience was great! The location made it very accommodating with children.

  • 4 of 5

This was our first vacation renting a private home in Maui. The house is cozy with all the amenities. Mostly the location was great! With beach access across the street and short driving distance to nearby attractions. Small set backs we ran out of hot water on our 2nd day, owner was very pleasant and quick to resolve. Also air conditioner is on a timer which you have no control to adjust temperature. Bedrooms have ceiling fans so that helped.

Overall we had a great experience and enjoyed our stay at this location. The sound of the beach waves was very soothing to wake up to. We would definitely come back during this time of the year.

Ocean view house, located approximately 30 steps to sugar beach, where you can enjoy a 6 mile beach walk, and all of the water sports and beach activities. You can even paddle a Hawaiian outrigger cannoe. We also have a second 3 bedroom house on another house lot next door. Good for small groups, family, etc. This is a great Kihei location on a private street next to the beach.
