Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5


This was a great location and great place, right across the street from the beach, a short drive to the stores but down a quiet dead end, all of which was great for us. The fenced in yard (w bbq) was perfect for our young kids (3 and 1) and the 3 rooms allowed everyone to have their own room. Ed the owner is just a few doors down, is there if you need him and really nice. We just loved it.

Amazing location! Steps from the beach & open air market! Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family reunion. The backyard was big with a nice grill & patio....perfect for relaxing and cooking out after fun afternoons at the beach just across the road. The street the house is on was surprisingly quiet for being so close to Kihei road and the beach......And there were no crowing roosters like many places we've stayed before. :-) We had a fantastic stay and would definitely stay here again.

Great Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The house is very cute. Small but comfortable enough for all six of us. Very close to the beach with beautiful sunsets. The only down side was that there was only one bathroom which proved challenging with 5 women in the home! But, there was an outside shower which was great for controlling the sand being tracked in the home.

The beds were comfy and the decor and amenities were perfect. The neighborhood was peaceful and inviting.

If I had any suggestions or constructive criticism, it would be better lighting in the living room and possibly replace the sofa, (little tired looking).

Other than that, we spent a lot of time in the back yard, I loved having a fire pit for s'mores after the beach, but we all crashed! The yard would be great for kids or animals, with lots of space to play.

I would visit again. We all had a great time.

Thank you Eddie! Aloha!!

If you're looking for a no frills no thrills some where to hang your hat and lay your head kind of place. Then this is it. But don't expect there to be Wi-fi as advertised, I have an idea what the step up is all about. Yes you can wash your cloths If need but you will have to pay 1.75 to dry them, was not happy that I had to pay in order to have enough towels for the week. Air only cooled the dinning room/ living room, lucky it cooled of some what at night. Yea and when you leave don't forget to load the dishwasher. Wait a minute, you are the dishwasher. Never could find that dishwasher. Not sure why I had to pay for cleaning because time we was doing everything on the list all he had to do was wash the sheets.

The Beds was the best part of the house, very comfortable and very nice sheet.

It really was not what I had expected. It took him over 24 hours to respond after we checked in, but only after I called him and he might of thought I was a new customer. After that he did not answer my calls until the wiring in the living room started C sparking and we was afraid the house might burn down. He offered to refund our money so we could go some where else. But who travels over 3500 miles and 16hrs to have to find another place to stay. So we made the best of it. Some decided to head back a day ealier then expected. It just really put a huge damper on my mom's 75 th Bitthday holiday.

I know that you was concerned about a bad review and that is why you offered the refund, but instead of fixing the issues you tried to blame us for the air, wi-fi and accused our children ( only adults over 50 was there) of stripping your wiring. I simply could not in good conscience let someone else walk into what we did.

Owner's Response: This review 90% false! This house was inspected several times (for the Maui County Vacation Rental Permit). There was nothing wrong with wiring etc. These guest only paid $179. per night. It's funny that "the ones that pay the least, complain the most" We now have 2 full bathrooms, a better a/c, and dedicated wi-fi.

This private beach house is a short walk (30 seconds) to Sugar Beach. You can hear the waves breaking, and feel the ocean breezes from this 3 bedroom, 2 bath house. This property is priced below other beach houses in the area. 3 bedrooms include: 2 king beds, 2 twin beds, and a fold out queen bed in the living room. Located on the sunny side of Maui, in Kihei. Very convenient location. Less than 30 minutes to Lahaina, Wailea, and of course the airport.

Don't book a vacation without a Maui County Permit! Our permit number is: #STKM-2014/0003
