Great house and host!
The house was perfect for our family. It was fully stocked in the kitchen and bathrooms. The pizza oven was an added bonus! Jon is a wonderful host. He made sure we had everything we needed to ensure we had a wonderful vacation! Thank you!
A Rare Find
We had an amazing stay at Jon's beautiful vacation rental. Having rented many homes through VRBO for over 20 years, we have never found a place as well equipped, clean, & organized as this one. Jon is also the most gracious and generous host we ever met. Jon's place is perfect for us because it is not part of a resort. His home is in a quiet residential neighborhood in North Kihei and centrally located to all activities, beaches and restaurants. We had initially rented only the main house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bath because we were party of 6. However, our7th friend joined us last minute and Jon graciously accommodated us by opening up the lovely cottage located in the upper part of the house with a private entry. We cooked most of our meals in the spacious and extremely well equipped kitchen. Jon had just about every spices you may need, almost brand new pots and pans perfectly organized in the cabinets. We also used the excellent BBQ grill and baked homemade pizzas with the pizza oven that Jon provided in the backyard. Our pizzas came out perfectly thanks to Jon's help. We enjoyed our meals in his beautiful backyard which is nicely lit up with tiki torches and mood lighting. The house is very tastefully and comfortably furnished. The cottage would be a perfect romantic stay for two with the plush King bed and Jacuzzi tub. The whole place is impeccably clean. We could go on but we can't say enough about Jon's meticulous and thoughtful attention to details that makes his place such a special stay for his guests. We highly recommend Jon's place and look forward to our next stay here when we return to Maui.
Beautiful, comfortable oasis- close to everything!
Jonathan was the consummate host. We loved our stay at your place - mahalo! The house is well appointed with everything you could need and more. The backyard was peaceful and inviting and we enjoyed morning coffee, afternoons after the beach, and dinners outside. (We loved our afternoon pizza making session with Jonathan and his pizza oven!) The kitchen (both indoor and out) had everything you could need. Comfortable indoors and nice soft towels and sheets, as well.
The location of this house is perfect, very convenient jump off point to exploring Maui, especially all the S Maui beaches! Can't say enough nice things. We loved our stay at Jonathan's! My husband and I are already figuring out when we can come stay in the "honeymoon" suite. Mahalo for all Jonathan!
Thank you for a great review on our freshly updated Licensed Kihei Vacation Home.Your whole family were great guests and by including our cottage in your reservation it made it easy for everyone to be comfortable. The Pizza Oven is becoming a great new amenity for our families to enjoy. Happy that we got to do it together. Come see us again !
Exactly the spot we were looking for our family vacation
Jonathan is a great host. He is very friendly and met us as we arrived to show us around the house. He gave a us a bunch of great tips about which beaches and events to check out during our stay. Also, gifted us a fresh apple pie and gave us some excellent shampoo to try : )
The house was well kept, well equipt, and very clean. We had everything we needed to prepare meals (including an air popper for popcorn, which the kids loved). He warned us about tenacious ants, but we followed his housekeeping guidelines and had no problems.
Our favorite part was the hot tub. Just the right temp and ready to go when we arrived. There was also a grill and a sweet pizza oven, but we didn't have a chance to use either. Maybe next time.
Plenty of gear for beach-sitting and snorkeling. Provided clean towels and coolers, too. There were also bikes and boogie boards.
We followed his guidelines for keeping the place cool. Worked perfectly. Even though temps crossed into the 80s, we never had to turn on the AC.
Was a huge bonus for us, as a family with small children, to have access to the washer/dryer. So necessary!
The front bedroom worked well for the kids, even for our 2-year old, who is just getting used to sleeping outside of a crib. Our 6-year old crashed on the couch without effort.
It was a little awkward for us was not having a proper table inside for meals. We like to face each other, and out kids like to watch TV as they eat. Not a big deal, but took some time to get used to. There is a great table outside, but the mosquitos really like my wife. There weren't huge clouds of them, but they were around, as you might expect at that latitude (I didn't get a single bite, but she had quite a few).
Also, the streaming (Roku and Fire TV) were a little flaky. We chalked this up to island life and adapted.
There were enough blu-rays, games and a big lawn in the back yard to keep the kids busy as we prepared meals and got everything together for our day trips.
All-and-all, a cozy spot to HQ for our first trip to Maui. We had a great week. Thank you, Jon!
Thank you for a great review and it was nice to have met your family. This year has been extremely super rainy and it did generate some mosquitoes this winter , now that it has dried out, seems like guests are back to enjoying "dining outside" . Thanks for letting me know about the streaming, I've ordered Google's Router Booster it will increase our router 4X and keep those Netflix flowing.Thank you so much for being great guests, say hi to alice and sammy. !!
Perfect home away from home
If you're looking for a space that allows you to feel like you're home, this is it. The house is immaculately clean, wonderfully decorated, and amazingly comfortable inside and out. The kitchen is well stocked with more than the basic necessities for any cooking you may like to do during your stay. Having a stocked spice cabinet was a nice plus. The grill outside was perfect for cooking up the fresh catch of the day. The large inside open concept living space made for a comfortable space to lounge at the beginning and end of the day. The well-manicured outside space had plenty of outside seating to enjoy an afternoon nap or quiet time to reflect on the beauty of the island.
Having spent many days during our stay outside adventuring, it was nice to be able to do a load of laundry or two during our stay with facilities right on sight, detergent included. Jonathan was kind enough to pop his head in to make sure we used his machine correctly to make sure our clothes came out sparkling clean.
This house is located in a quiet neighboorhood away from the hustle and bustle of the tourism of the island, to make you feel like you truly have a home on Maui. Jonathan is a wonderful host and fully embodies the spirit of aloha. He is genuinely interested in making sure you not only enjoy your stay at his house but also on the island. He would check in with us to make sure we had all we needed, quick to offer a recommendation when asked and even brought us a fresh apple pie from Maui Pie. What a treat!
I can't say enough things about this property and Jonathan. They are both absolute gems!
You were our very First Guest since we've reopened our property. Its was great to hear that you appreciated the effort that we put into making things perfect for our guests. We sincerely thank you for the first FIVE STAR RATING of our newly Licensed Maui Rental. Come see us again .
Marvelous holiday home
This property is very well cared for - every detail was beautifully handled and available for our use. We really appreciated the snorkeling gear, the comfortable beds, the hot tub and the outdoor picnic table so that we could enjoy our breakfast outside. Jonathan is a great host and was available for questions that we had. We enjoyed the walk to the beach and morning swim. I would definitely recommend this home and look forward to staying here again in the future.
