This place is fantastic and perfect for a couple traveling to Maui. We will definitely try to stay here again on our next trip. It's clean, modern, cozy, and the location is great, in a residential neighborhood but still just a few blocks from the beach. On our last day we swam in the beaches nearest this rental and wish we would have done so each day instead of driving far away to find other beaches. The place is just as pictured and has a flat screen tv now. It's extra helpful to have a washer/dryer, 2 comfy beach chairs, and plates, glassware and cooking utensils. It is located atop the garage sort of like an in-law suite and it has everything you need. The host is very friendly and helpful! As others mentioned go for the shaved ice place up the street, you will be amazed. Would suggest bringing things like a ziploc bag of coffee, a ziploc of laundry detergent, some dryer sheets, and we also brought things like a muddler to make drinks (if you take the tour at Ocean Vodka they let you pick fresh herbs to make drinks at home which we did and it was great!) Everything on Maui is expensive so bring what you can to save. There's a Costco and a Safeway which had the most reasonable prices. Pack your bags and be prepared for a wonderful stay!
The listing was very accurate. The apartment looked exactly as it does in the photos in the listing. We had most basic amenities that we needed to make our stay enjoyable - there were pots, pans, cutting board, beach towels, etc. We even received a new sponge, dishwashing soap, and there was new body soap in the bathroom. We were also given beach chairs to borrow for the week, which was very helpful for our stay. There were a few things we needed to get on our own, but they were really minor.
The host was also very accessible by text if we had any questions, and even provided a welcome sheet detailing some suggestions. The place had so much light, was very quiet, and even had an air conditioner in the bedroom (which was great for hot nights). Everything and every room in the apartment is in great condition. It's also in a great location, and it's really easy to get to several great beaches, and all the famous sights around Maui.
I needed some time away from busy busy life and a little quiet to get some work stuff done and I picked a great place! The location to the airport was perfect, grocery stores near by.. My morning walks to Sugar beach are missed already (less then 5 minutes) all in all I had a great trip. My hosts allowed for the privacy I was seeking and where available the couple times I contacted them. The guest house is spacious and looks exactly like the pictures. I slept well and appreciated the washer and dryer after days of hiking and kayaking all over the place. I can't wait to come back to Maui and would recommend this place to anyone not wanting the touristy experience and a place to relax and chill. But if you are still wanting some of the resort experiences you have two areas both north and east of this location within 15-30 minutes drive. Impeccable beaches everywhere.
We stayed in this Ohana for 1 week and absolutely loved it! It is exactly as pictured (aside from an upgrade to a flat screen tv); cozy and comfortable for a vacation stay. It was great to have washer and dryer access for wet beach clothes, and full kitchen amenities. The location is perfect in my opinion, close to shops and restaurants (5-10 minute drive) and walking distance to a wonderful beach, good coffee place, convenience store, and shaved ice shop (5 minute walk). It is also driving distance to Lahina and Paia for exploring other areas of the island. If you enjoy staying in a more residential area and away from hotels, yet within easy access to vacation activities, this is definitely the best bet for a vacation rental. We will definitely return here for our next Maui vacation!!
Stayed here for 4 nights in February. Apartment is nice and clean and all we really needed for our trip. The hot water would occasionally run out, but in the apartment's defence, my partner takes very long showers. The washer/dryer came in very handy throughout the trip, and the aircon in the bedroom was a godsend in the hot maui weather. The TV is nice and modern and kitchen is very well stocked. The nearby shaved ice store and bakery are both top class and within walking distance. If staying again in Maui, would stay here.
We stayed in the apartment for two weeks. The place was bright and very comfortable. The higher ceilings made it feel spacious. The bathroom is nicely appointed, and it was very convenient to have a washer and dryer. It's walking distance to a beach and relatively close to Kahului compared with southern Kihei. Jeff worked very hard to accommodate us by installing brighter lightbulbs and by getting the internet going again when it crashed. We would certainly stay here again.
A very nice location and accommodations. As of Feb'15 there were lots of towels, microwave, oven, coffeemaker with coffee/filter. Cutlery and crockery for 4, wine opener, basic baking/cooking supplies, cleaning supplies. A very nice bathroom with hair dryer. Even had bug spray, and suntan lotion. The laundry room had a iron and ironing board and laundry soap. .,.................,.................. The only thing I would suggest is a second wine glass so you both could have a drink, an alarm clock and a long handled broom to clean up the sand. .,.,.... We enjoyed our stay.
