Located about four blocks from the beach in a quiet residential area of Kihei you are approximately 20 minutes South of Lahaina and 5 minutes North of Wailea. Lodgings are very clean and well stocked for anything you might need i.e. cooking utensils, towels, iron, hairdryer, TV's (not sure why you need a TV in Maui but there anyway), mp3 player. The backyard is meticulously well maintained with seating, tables and hot tub. Beach toys were new and plenty, no need to rent at the beach. Jonathan was excellent with many suggestions and available almost anytime. I would stay here again without question.

Great Place, Great People

  • 5 of 5

It was my wife's birthday and I wanted to surprise her. Since we only live on Kauai I thought it would be fun to escape to Maui for the weekend. Well our weekend ;) Since we are both in the hospitality industry we rarely get to feel like tourists in the place we call home. So it was a total treat to enjoy all that Maui has to offer with no stress of real life.

It was a whim decision on my part to plan this trip. I started looking 4 days before I planned for us to leave. It was difficult to find a place that would accept last minute bookings and even harder to find a quality place that was available with only 4 days of notice. I feel like I found a diamond in the rough!

Since I was planning this surprise trip on my own I was really nervous. The owner calmed all my nerves and assured me we would have a great time in Kihei. The owners even helped me out with dinner reservations for my wife's birthday dinner! They have a wealth of knowledge about the island. Getting their advice on things such as where to get a cheap rent a car, to what fun hikes are on the island to the best place for local grinds was such a treat. It made this trip like visiting good friends... knowing they will show you the best of the best.

Once we got to the house all my jitters faded away especially when I saw the smile on my wife's face! Each of my kids had their own room and we had a master suite. It was just like being at home instead of cramming us all into a hotel, there is no romance in that! The owner of the house has thought of everything. I mean everything. The kitchen is stocked with every gadget you could need as well as spices.

The backyard is beautifully maintained with a gazebo covered hot tub. We spent our first night in there drinking champagne and watching the stars... Feeling a million miles away from the stress of home. Once again you can't get this kind of privacy in a hotel.

There is also a shed filled with all the toys you need for a great beach day. Being from a neighbor island we are used to going to the beach with a certain amount of gear. It was so nice to have everything we were used to and more... Wonderful beach chairs, coolers, snorkels and even boogie boards for the kids!

Mahalo for the great time and welcoming us into your Ohana! I hope the next time we come to Maui we can stay at your house again. It really did feel like home.

Well-stocked and comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Jonathan's home was even more beautifully decorated than the photos in the listing suggest, as other guests have noted. The backyard was a slice of paradise in the larger slice of paradise that is Maui. The home was furnished with everything we needed and more. The kitchen utilities were modern, clean, and well-maintained. We had paper towels, local coffee, etc. There were a ton of bikes to choose from, and Jonathan was always available if you needed him. The location was perfect for us to explore the whole island. Oh, and if Jonathan recommends a restaurant, you are stupid not to go. Also, if you find that you are addicted to AC on the mainland, go ahead and break the habit and open the windows as Jonathan suggests. It really is cooler. Thanks, Jonathan, for a wonderful stay! You are an awesome host.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

John's place is exactly as advertised. Safe. Comfortable. Well equipped. Well located. He has all the toys, beach chairs, coolers, towels, bikes, boogie boards. There's off street parking, air conditioning (we didn't use it) fans, ice, even a coffee grinder and pop corn machine. He leaves spices in the cabinets and the kitchen has all the necessary stuff. A tv in every room. Huge yard with jacuzzi, bbq, big lawn. What more can you possibly asked for?

we loved this place

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 8 guys renting the house and the cottage for about a week in January. Jonathan was the owner and he was great and reply fast with our questions.

Initially, we had concerns with the size of the place to fit all 8 of us for the house + cottage, but it all worked out fine. The photo here isn't very good. The living room/kitchen has a open floor plan and it has a very high ceiling so it didn't feel crowded for us. The cottage is nice and private. The place is nicely updated thru out.

The house is located in the residential area of north Kihei, so it is very quiet after 8pm. The house has 3 living quarters: 3 bed/2 baths main level, owner's area (converted garage, main level) and upstairs cottage (above the owner's area). The owner is very friendly and helpful, we see him working on the house, doing yard work and checking on our toilet paper/paper towel supplies daily.

The house comes with beach stuff so that was really nice. The bikes are on the older side, but no problem for just a short riding around Kihei. The back yard is very cute, especially at night when all the lights goes on, the owner would light up the tiki lights for us, too. The BBQ grill was awesome, the hot tub was clean and warm. There is a passion fruit tree in the front and Jonathan picked couple fruits for us, so we made a passion fruit egg tart out of it :)

Owner's Response: david thanks so much for writing a review of your stay at our property. i think you and your friends enjoyed the property more than any other guests that i can recall. the hot tub was always in use, dining and barbecuing in the backyard was an almost nightly thing, yoga and sunbathing in the privacy of our fenced yard, in the end it really was a pleasure to see a group of guests enjoying all the toys and amenities but more than that to know that the experience we provide for guests can't be found in most vacation rentals and that you had a home to call your own for a week on Maui. David, you are absolutely correct, our photos just don't do justice to the real life experience of staying at our property. thank everyone for leaving the property in perfect condition, you're all welcome back at anytime. mahalo jonathan

Great place to stay for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this house for over a week. We had a wide range of kid ages from 5 to 20 plus 4 adults and a total of 8 people in the house and the apartment over the garage. There was plenty of space - everyone had things to do, they could get away from each other if necessary, and the little kids were entertained while the big kids slept in, and big kids were entertained while the little kids went to bed. It was great to be so close to the beach, yet far enough away from the usual tourist traps. Restaurants were close, the grocery store was nearby, and we cooked and went out to dinner - either way the house was very convenient. The backyard was wonderful, the bbq was great and the kitchen was very well equipped. The house was extremely clean and the owner was very attentive, caring, and helpful. The use of the beach stuff, including umbrellas, chairs, beach towels, snorkeling equipment and boogie boards was really convenient especially for a big family. Use of the laundry was also really helpful since we packed light! I would definitely highly recommend the house and would stay here again - hopefully soon because Maui is so great! Thank you for everything!

Great house near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Jonathan's house in Kihei. This was our first trip to Maui and this location was perfect. Kihei is central to the airport, Lahaina, and Wailea and the house is just a few blocks from a peaceful beach. We traveled with two sets of parents and there was plenty of space for all of us. The backyard quickly became a favorite spot for lounging around after days at the beach and site-seeing. The house has been updated. Furniture is comfortable and modern. The kitchen has everything you need to cook in or use the grill out back. We're definitely looking forward to coming back. Thanks Jonathan!
