This was an amazing little place on a quiet cul-de-sac. We were with our daughter, daughter-in-law, and our baby grandson. There was lots of room for all of us in the house. It was so incredibly close to baby beach that we went several times a day around our grandson's naps! We loved the outdoor shower at the house to rinse off after the many beach visits! The sunsets from the beach were awe-inspiring and the photographers among us walked down and waited every evening. The town was a lovely close walk so we strolled there and back every day as well. Grocery stores were also within walking distance and that was great since we had only one car. I can't imagine a better place for families! We feel very fortunate to have found this wonderful piece of paradise. Thank-you, Robert and Denise, for sharing your home with us!

Great home close to the ocean and the entertainment of Front Street. A personal pool was great!

  • 4 of 5

Torn between 3 stars. The House was great especially for 3 couples. Very close to the beach without the beachfront price. We were frustrated for a $300 cleaning fee yet when we arrived we don’t feel like a $300 cleaning job had been done prior. Also you are asked to wash the towels which we feel should be included. The fridge was difficult to get COLD, The coffee maker is stained heavily, the master didn’t have a shower curtain which made difficult to keep Water off the ground. A/C in every room was wonderful yet the master was noisey compared to others. The outside shower was a hit with everyone but the head is clogged and leaks. There were some beach toys/chairs/cooler yet they were all heavily worn or very dirty making us having to rent our own (almost bought some and left them for the next guests) We were asked to leave $100 for a late checkout which was disappointing. at any resort they usually have a courtesy room/shower to hold your bags and clean up before a late flight for free. The sink outside next to the washer and dryer was completely destroyed. The gas grill was VERY dirty even after we burned everything off and scrubbed the grate a minor taste was still transferred to your food making us go out instead of grilling poolside. Overall great place compared to the MANY we looked at before. Robert was very easy to talk to and work with. a lot of little cheap fixes would have made this closer to a 5 star even. Especially if minor things are fixed we would stay again and recommend to others.

Best Vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We just want to say thank you for opening up your beautiful, comfortable and convenient home to us for almost two weeks. Very well stocked with everything from toiletries to kitchen items. Great wifi, but who has time to use it when you are in paradise! The pool was amazing, and used daily by all. Mahalo, we hope to see you again!

Perfect location, comfortable home, responsive hosts

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our second visit to this perfectly-located home in a Lahaina neighborhood, 1/2-block walk to the beach, walkable to town and an easy drive to anywhere. There is a split format for the bedrooms, so guests have privacy from one another while being able to convene at the dinner table, around the center island, or around the pool. The backyard and front courtyard are both very private, and there is a heated outdoor shower out back with full enclosure around the sides into which the warm sun beams for a wonderful shower experience.

The master bedroom is spacious with an en-suite bathroom and large closet. Our granddaughter ended up being more comfortable in her parents' room, so it turns out that the sofa in the master BR opens up into a queen-sized bed, and there was no trouble having that open alongside the king-sized MBR bed, making it perfect for the little ones.

The other 2 bedrooms have very comfortable beds as well, plus there is ample drawer and closet space for unpacking.

We had one very minor issue while we were there, and our hosts were VERY quick to respond and take care of it. In general they were always available when we wanted a referral or had a question, and were great representatives of the Aloha spirit. Thanks, Bob & Denise, for yet another wonderful stay in Lahaina!

Its like a cottage

  • 3 of 5

Great wi-fi, big screen tv and Netflix were excellent.

The general condition of the house interior was more like a cottage where you bring your good condition things for a final rest.

The hot tub wasn't hot, the pool was not heated. It is advertised as a new pool heater but there was a surcharge for propane to use it.

Solar heating of the water like the great house system would be a good thing.

The pool needed a good cleaning especially the salt staining on the tile from the water teatment.

The bed cover in the Master bedroom was stained and dirty. House needed a thorough cleaning guests pay to have it cleaned!

BBQ hadn't been cleaned either.

A shower curtain in the master bath would be helpful to avoid spilling outside the tub.

Yes the location is excellent and as long as you're aware it's a cottage and quite casually kept you'll not be disappointed.

We enjoyed our stay and the host was gracious, friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: All seemed in place for the kind of stay our guests (many return; "the record is 9 times")expect in our 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath home (not a cottage!). What was "omitted": (1) Our lovely daughter was a "BABYSITTER" for their children; (2) Carpenters created a solar activated OUTDOOR SHOWER. (3) Bed covers are regularly changed; (4) POOL is looking great; HOSPITALITY is Priority #1: We are up to the challenge! Robert Holland, Owner.
