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.

Time at the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Our group enjoyed this beach house with its close proximity to Sugar Beach. Walking the beach in the early morning with a stop at the Sugar Beach bakery started the days off on a great note. The location was great for day trips around the island.

The owner, Eddie, told us the 2nd bathroom would be done in April, it was not. Then he said he never said it would be and showed me his emails with me...well not all of them. When I got home, I resent him the email where he said the 2nd bathroom would be ready in April, as we were 2 senior couples that wanted our own separate bathrooms. (Eddie offered to give us our money back, but we arrived after 5, plus had never been to Maui before to know where else to go - thus were forced to stay there with just that 1 bathroom.)

We did like the Kiheil central location on the island with it's breezes. The house had comfortable king beds & nice furniture. The living room air conditioning is on a timer that you cannot control, so sometimes the house was too warm. The front porch was very nice, but you can't see the waves/beach nor sunsets from it. Nice having the ocean just across the busy road. Had a nice stone wall fence with plants. The washer/dryer are in the shed, but you need coins for the dryer. The outside cold water shower by the shed does not constitute a half-bath. Had some water toys, but never saw the kayaks.

Needed Improvements: air conditioning not on a timer, or additional bedroom air conditioning (as ceiling fans not enough) + tub bathmat with grab bar, as tub is very slippery + more than 1 TV set + have Kleenex tissue available & spare paper towels. The place was cleaner when we left than when we arrived + had to clean gas grill to use it + same story on washing machine. Last but not least, be HONEST with people!

Owner's Response: THIS HOUSE WAS ABSOLUTELY NOT MISREPRESENTED and the additional new bathroom is now complete and in use!!!! This visitor missed it by one week. The email did not at anytime "guarantee" or say that the new bathroom would be completed by a certain date. The kayak has always been available upon request. (you must sign a safety waiver) This visitor was not being honest with me on the day they departed, when she said that everything was wonderful and that she really enjoyed the house. I had checked with them periodically during their stay to make sure everything was great! I was very surprised to read the negative review.

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.

Owner's Response: "The completion date for the additional full bathroom was never assured or guaranteed to anyone." Plain and simple. The builders worked very hard to finish it asap. The visitors that checked in on 10/8/16 were the first to use the new bathroom. It is use now. When you build a additional bathroom (this close to the ocean) in the state of Hawaii , it takes time. You have to deal with FEMA etc. We would never be so naive to guarantee a time table for completion. . Additional a/c is in the works. The kayak has always been available upon request, just like the listing says. Many of our guests have used the kayaks.

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.

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.
