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.

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.

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented both houses for 10 days in Feb 2016. We stayed in this one and loved it! It isn't fancy but had everything we could have needed and was clean and well cared for. It is in the perfect location and was close to anywhere you wanted to get to on the island. It was great having a private home to come back to at the end of a busy day. Our boys enjoyed running around and throwing a football around in the yard while the adults enjoyed a beverage on the private lanai with ocean views.

The beach across the street exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful and not very busy like many of the other beaches we went to. We spent a lot of time there with the kids. The only (minor) downside was that the road you have to cross to get to the beach was quite busy (south Kihei road).

The bbq ran out of propane early on in our visit and the owner was very quick to reply to my message and was prompt to have it filled the next day.

All in all, a great trip, great location, great little home. We very likely might rent this home again in the future! Can't wait to come back to Maui...

Excellet location, spacious for families

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described and pictured. We stayed for 2 weeks, and had no concerns at all. Eddie was always quick to get back to us when we emailed him. There was plenty of space for my husband and I, and our 7, 5 and 1.5 year old as well as my parents. The gated yard is perfect for the kids to run around, as well as enjoy your coffee and breakfast on the lanai. The property and house is clean and well maintained. We had a few ant (mini mini ants) issues, but its to be expected in the heat, and dampness. I was nothing that a little raid couldn't handle and certainly wouldn't deter me from coming back.

The location to the beach is great. A hop skip and a jump across the road and you are at a quiet beach, no crowds, and perfect for kids to be able to walk out into, with no rocks, just sand for miles.

We would highly recommend staying here. Having the use of laundry, full kitchen, bbq, TV and DVD player made it easy for our vacation with 3 kids, while keeping the budget down on eating out every meal. You can hear the traffic from South Kihei Rd, but I honestly spent more time focused on how I could also hear the beauty of the waves crashing in the ocean steps outside of the window. And my parents stayed in the room near the back of the house and said they did not hear any traffic at night.

We enjoyed having the amenities near by grocery stores, restaurants, and markets a short drive away.We enjoyed the great food at Freds, Kihei Kaffe, fresh fish from the fish truck and lots of fresh fruit from the market! And the ABC and shaved ice store within walking distance for sure. If you enjoy a quiet getaway from the crowds this is the perfect place for you! Honestly its like having your own private beach right outside your door. We enjoy snorkelling, so we had to drive to different locations to do this, but its always nice to explore the island. There is a playground at the public beach just a short drive away.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Just steps from the ocean. Wear water socks as there are rocks in the shallows, great sunsets, pool is a bit cooler than the ocean, I don't think it's heated, but it is winter in Maui. Property is starting to show its age, but it is literally steps from the beach. Beds were comfortable, ac worked well, window crank broken, fought with screen door whole time there, older DVD player doesn't play all cd's or picture cd's from our outings. None of the fire alarms worked, need batteries changed, wall clock battery done too, even though there were 5 fleshlights, only one kinda worked, need kitchen towels, one blender leaked, the other blender handle was broken, like I said, if you can overlook a few minor imperfections, the location is awesome, just a couple blocks from a fresh fish market, 15 minutes from Lahaina, outdoor bbq, and did I mention, only 5 steps from balcony to the sany beach. Lots of whale sightings just from the balcony. Couple of sea turtles living nearby. Unfortunately no cleaning services were offered. But we survived with the apartment sized washer/dryer, a few cleaning supplies, however, a mop and bucket would have been nice.

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.
