About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Near Beach


Rent directly from a private local owner instead of a large management company.

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 location!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six adults unanimously agreed that our accommodations in Maui were truly awesome. Great view of the ocean and very close proximity to beaches, shopping and great restaurants. Also within 1/2 hour to the airport, Lahaina and Paia. Beds were comfortable and we lacked for nothing. My one and only negative was that the bathrooms could have better ventilation (maybe fans) as it could get quite steamy after showering in the hot weather we had during our visit. I would highly recommend Steve and Tamaras home in Wailea to anyone searching for vacation accommodations in Maui.

Wonderful Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 women (my mom, sister and two daughters). The home was immaculate and as described. Quiet, private, tropical. Amazing views. We loved hanging by the pool, then grabbing our beach towels and hitting the beach.

Thanks Steve and Tamara

Amazing rental home in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

Came to Maui for a week with 5 close girlfriends and absolutely loved our stay at Tamara and Steve's. From the beginning our hosts were great in providing us with any information we wanted about the rental home. The photos of the house displayed are completely accurate, we couldn't have asked for a more spacious, modern and beautiful living space for the week! The one thing the photos don't do justice is the incredible view of the mountains and water, we had the most incredible sunsets overlooking the gorgeous Hawaiian backdrop. Amenities including the pool and hot tub were perfect and we felt very safe in the neighborhood. A close drive to Wailea and Kihei for both food and beach options, this rental home is perfect for any family or friend group looking for a sanctuary in Maui!

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Steve and Tamara!! We had a wonderful stay in your home and would highly recommend to anyone interested in a trip to Maui!! We were celebrating our 10 year wedding Anniversary along with friends Birthday and could not complain about a single thing! The view was amazing, the pool and hot tub were used daily as well as the beach towels, chairs snorkel gear, & coolers etc. which were a huge bonus! The beds were comfy and the house had everything we needed! We were so thrilled to be so close to everything from beaches to restaurants to activities such as snorkel trips and zip lining! We are hoping to come back again one day with our kids to enjoy Hawaii once again. What a magical Place!

We stayed in the house for 10 days and enjoyed it tremendously. All of us looked forward to waking up, make coffee and spend the morning on the upper deck with the amazing view of the ocean.

The house is comfortable, well appointed and given a lot of attention to detail.

Close to the beaches, restaurants and most activities.

Steve and Tamara were always available and responded within minutes .

I called the house a mini resort, since one can easily spend a day without going anywhere.

I hope to be back one day.

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 one wants to use a pre-used dishcloth!

While we appreciated the lawn chairs and umbrellas....maybe gave the cleaning crew check them between 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. Although we do not agree with your assessment of our home (nor do others as from all the positive reviews), we hope you will consider returning to see that your concerns have been addressed and that we very much care about our guests experience. If you do have any issues, please let us know when you are here on Maui so we can take care of them promptly. Unfortunately, our new couches had 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 would have been happy to have my cleaners come back to detail the downstairs if you had let us known you were not satisfied. We take pride in the cleanliness of our rentals and realize how important that is to guests. As to the kitchen items mentioned, they have either been replaced or removed. 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 which will happen August 2016. 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
