Maui House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Near Beach

Come stay with us here in sunny south Maui at our beautiful, lovingly remodeled ocean view home with private pool. There are amazing ocean views from almost all rooms in the house and the wrap around covered deck is perfect for indoor/outdoor style island living. The crystal clear all tiled pool is for your private use with no other rentals on the property (most Maui Meadows homes have a cottage). Several beautiful white sand beaches are a short two minute drive away.

This home is one of five legal private home rentals in the desired island neighborhood of Maui Meadows. We passed all county regulations and now can share our lovely property with visitors to this special island we call home (Permit #STKM 2013/0005). There are no other buildings on our 1/2 acre land - the private use of our 3 bedroom, 2 bath fully renovated home and pool makes for a memorable vacation. This home even has it's own elliptical trainer with an unparalleled view and pool table for evening entertainment. We are a short two minute drive to the beach, several restaurants and shopping.

About Steve and Tamara Farwig

We have lived on Maui for the last 18 years. Steve is a firefighter with the county of Maui and Tamara now runs our vacation rental business. Our two children were born here on Maui but have roots in Canada where Tamara grew up, Steve lived for years and grandparents reside. We also have studios and one bedroom condos in Kihei and Wailea that we rent to vacationers.

Steve and Tamara Farwig purchased this house in 2000

Why Steve and Tamara Farwig chose Maui

This is a legal, permitted vacation rental home in a unique residential neighborhood that has been known for renting to visitors in the past but was previously mainly illegal to do so. There are no other buildings on this property like most Maui Meadows homes so it is completely private.

What makes this house unique

We currently live just a few minutes away and personally take care of all our guests needs. The advantage of an on-island owner who self manages is a property you can be sure is well taken care of.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We LOVED your home! our kids swam in the pool each day and we loved eating dinner out on your patio deck. Your home is beautiful and our stay here was perfect. Thank for opening up your home! We had an amazing trip we will cherish forever! Mahalo!

Great view....needs some updating...

  • 3 of 5

The neighborhood was nice and quiet & we were not bothered by the the neighbors at all. The view was great and the pool was well kept. It was our understanding from the description that the upstairs was airconditioned and the downstairs was not....turns out it was only the upstairs bedrooms that were air conditioned. Things that need improvement:

The utensils and kitchen equipment were HEAVILY used and need replacing. The cutting boards, especially were unusable. Pans....a close second. When Cephalon is shredded ...just replace it.

Lots of ants and roaches ...need to make sure your extermination is current.

The entire downstairs needs a good cleaning and updating. The bed skirt has multiple black stains on it and the bathroom fixtures were dirty upon arrival. Not sure if you need to replace your cleaning company, but the hygiene downstairs was severely lacking.

The furniture all throughout the house is worn, specifically the leather couches in the family room. The brown one had worn spots at least 12 inches across! The pictures are not a true representation of this room.

You should also leave at least one new dishcloth or sponge for each new renter.....no one wants to use a pre-used dishcloth!

While we appreciated the lawn chairs and umbrellas....maybe gave the cleaning crew check them between guest....it took 15-20 minutes to clean the sand off of them where the sat folks dumped them.

When we arrived (at 3pm) there was a dryer going in the carport....and when we left and came back it was STILL running. Finally when night fell, we took it upon ourselves to stop it. Then someone came in the middle of the night and took things out....slightly sketchy.

With a few updates and some closer attention to derail by the owners this property can live up to its advertisement.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I apologize for your poor experience and we sincerely hope you will consider returning to see that all of your concerns have been addressed. And if you do have any additional issues, please let us know when you are here so we can take care of them promptly. Unfortunately, our new couches have not arrived yet - shipping to Maui for large items can often take several weeks. Although both couches were brand new only 2 years ago, repeated wet bottoms on leather does not wear well. I'm not sure what other furniture you felt was not acceptable. I did replace a broken headboard recently but that was before your arrival. Unfortunately, when you arrived on the 25th, we were still on vacation and did not return until the 29th so I did not have a chance to personally inspect the home like I usually do. I would have been happy to have my cleaners come back to detail the downstairs. We take pride in the cleanliness of our rentals and know how important that is to guests. As to the kitchen items, they have either been replaced or removed. We actually had two sets of pots and pans because some previous guests wanted aluminum but I have removed the one's you mentioned. It is also important in the tropics to always store your food in the fridge and carefully close any dried goods. Keeping the screen doors closed at all times is also super important in controlling any insects or bugs from entering the home. We do have quarterly service for pest control which includes coming to spray anytime bugs are present. I just needed to know you saw some so I could schedule Terminex. We are also very clear in all our advertising regarding air conditioning only in the two upstairs bedrooms. We do not want our guests to have any surprises. We actually just scheduled the installation of an a/c system for the upstairs living room area (not a window unit like the bedrooms). which will happen this coming August. At any rate, hope to have you back again someday for a chance to prove our desire that all our guests have a positive experience and to show that we take our guests comments seriously. With Aloha Tamara and Steve

Amazing view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and fell in love with everything about this property!!! The most amazing views!

Beds were super comfortable and room for everyone to spread out. The pool was nice and warm and plenty of lounge chairs as well as a great outdoor seating area on the main floor!!! Close proximity to everything. Steve and Tamara were great from the day we booked all the way up until we left. You will not be sorry when booking this property!!!

Great Family Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful vacation at this beautiful home. The views were fantastic and the pool was amazing. Much of our time was spent outside enjoying the beauty of this house. The kitchen was equipped with all that we needed. The pool was great, but could use a few more floaty toys for the kids to play with. The sand toys and beach stuff was just enough for our trips to the many beaches, just a short drive away.

We definitely hope to return one day.

Unforgettable holiday in Sunny Maui

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to have a 12 day stay at this beautiful, comfortable house that started to feel like our own home. It was perfect for our family of two teenagers, my parents & me & my husband. Everyone had a special place to relax, either on one of the lanai's, next to the pool or in the window seat in the living room. We've used the hot tub & pool everyday! Prepared many wonderful meals in the well equipped kitchen & enjoyed eating it outside with the beautiful view! Thank you Steve & Tamara for being prompt & efficient with the booking & heplful & friendly during our stay & also being accommodating for arranging a late check out because of our flight schedule! We loved every moment staying here & I would recommend staying at your house to all my friends & family!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Steve & Tamara's rental for 10 days and couldn't of asked for a better home. Everything was perfect! They were very quick to respond with any questions we had with booking. The views from the deck were incredible, and the beaches are a few minutes away. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed.

We would definitely stay here again- Thanks Steve & Tamara!

Exceptional Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing ten day trip to Maui and staying in this home was the icing on the cake. We went on many day trips and it was always so nice to come back to the house and relax in the pool. The house was extremely clean and had pretty much everything that we needed. The neighborhood was very peaceful and quiet. We have rented many properties, and this one was one of the greatest.
