Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so sad to leave today, we had such a fantastic time in Maui and it was greatly due to the comfort at Pau 'ole Makai. We enjoyed the house so much, we only left to eat lunch and dinner! Also, I can't even begin to tell you how much our daughter loved seeing Drummer everyday...he made the stay that much more special. It was so hard to leave! Thank you so much, Erin. You have been a such a pleasure to work with.

Perfect Anniversary trip!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay, house was amazing! Gorgeous views, well stocked kitchen and perfect outside pool/spa area! Beds were comfortable, huge plus! 5 am or earlier rooster wake up call was rough every morning but we were warned and you get used to it. Lol!

I don't have anything bad to say about the property or our stay at all. We felt like we were on our honeymoon the entire time!

We had an amazing time at your lovely home! 4 Generations stayed and there was something for all of us! The hot tub was perfect for us, and no need for lights in the pool, the tiki torches were magical. Loved feeding the chickens and rooster, made us feel right at home. We will look forward to a longer stay next time!

Your Own Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (two adults and three teens) stayed here for 10 days over New Year's and we could not have been happier. The house was exactly as we expected it to be based on the description and other reviews. As others have said it is the outdoor space that makes this house so special. The large covered lanai has multiple seating areas for taking in the ocean views. The pool is heated only by the sun and was a couple degrees cooler than we would've liked but we enjoyed it anyway and the hot tub was fabulous. The waterfall and tiki torches around the pool at night give the whole scene a very exotic feel. Excellent views of the Pacific and the island of Lanai'i not to mention beautiful sunsets every night. Needless to say, we spent several hours each day enjoying the outdoor space.

The house itself is quite nice and has absolutely everything you need. We cooked a few meals ourselves and found the kitchen to be well stocked. Good views from inside the house too. As mentioned by other reviewers the master suite is separate from the rest of the house (i.e. attached only by the outdoor lanai) so this could be an issue if you have small children. It is also nicer (bigger) than the other two bedrooms and contains the laundry facilities which is important to know if traveling with other couples. The small bedroom right off the kitchen is not as bad as some have made it seem but is definitely not as desirable as the other two bedrooms.

Finally the house is located in a nice residential area away from the crowds/tourists yet very convenient to most other places on the island. Launiupoko is a nice beach just at the bottom of the hill and there are others a short drive south (Olowalu and Ukemahame good for snorkeling and beginner surfing respectively). Less than a 10 min drive to downtown Lahaina. Foodland Farms on Keawe Street is a terrific grocery store in Lahaina.

Erin and Mara were very easy to work with and we had no issues. This was a perfect house for us and a good experience overall.

Beautiful view, nice home, but needs some work

  • 4 of 5

The view and location are the outstanding features of this home. It’s a nice 2 full bedroom home with an additional, very small sleeping room off the kitchen. The kitchen is spacious with very nice appliances. It’s the little details that detract from this house. The garbage disposal wasn’t working, the master shower didn’t drain, there are no pool lights, the outdoor sound system is in but not working. There is a “hot” tub that gets warm, but no lights or jets. The master bed and pillows were lumpy and uncomfortable. Putting a bit of time and effort into this home could make it outstanding.

Owner's Response: Aloha Kim, Thank you for the review and we're glad to hear you enjoyed the fantastic ocean views and the home's central, yet private, location in West Maui. The garbage disposal has a switch underneath - something we would have gladly helped you with, had you mentioned anything during your stay. Same goes for the shower. We try to prepare the home and make sure everything is in working order, but occasionally things do go out or act up once guests are there. We are readily available to help fix any issues that may come up. There are no pool lights nor are there outdoor speakers. We do try to advertise the home as accurate as possible, so these are never listed as amenities on our property. The tiki torches provide a great relaxing vibe around the pool. I hope you and your husband enjoyed celebrating your 10th anniversary at our home and we hope to have you back again soon. Mahalo, Erin

Very pretty

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home. And very private! We had a lovely time. My grandson who is 3 loved the pool. It is shallow to walk right into for him. The sunsets were so pretty. The jets didn't work in the hot tub but it was still hot. It would of been nice to have the pool lights working.

Owner's Response: Aloha Ann, we're glad to hear you enjoyed the home and that your grandson had a blast in the pool. The sloped beach-like entrances into the pool are definitely a favorite feature for all ages. The single pool light is permanently broken but we do have the tiki torches surrounding the pool and ample overhead lighting on the lanai. The spa is not a Jacuzzi in which there are no major bubbles and air flow but hot and relaxing none the less with such amazing views- particularly at sunset, as you mentioned. Thank you the great review and we hope to have you and your family back again soon! Many mahalos, Erin Alii Destinations

Wonderful family getaway home

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our Maui family vacation at Villa Malia. The views from this home are stunning and so accessible from the lovely outdoor living area. The kitchen was spotless and well appointed, the beds were comfy with abundant storage to unpack clothes and belongings. Everything we needed was available. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful pool with the pretty waterfall. Beach chairs and an umbrella were provided for our afternoon excursions to several nearby gorgeous beaches. Loved loved loved the outdoor stone shower with the view of the Pacific Ocean - a truly unique experience! So grateful to Erin for her prompt responses and to Mara for welcoming us to the home. Lahaina is a great location for all the fun activities to do on Maui. Only regret - wish we had stayed longer!
