The Space

This is a licensed dweilling . License number is STKM 2013/0013
2 bedroom cottage located in central Kihei on spacious, multi-dwelling property. We do not serve breakfast as you have your own full kitchen. This house is not on the street, but tucked back from the road. Parking is right off your lanai. One block from the ocean, 2 blocks from stores. Quiet, rural setting right in the center of Kihei. Kihei is centrally located to all activities in Maui.

Sunny Kihei has the best climate in Maui, warm weather year-round with very low precipitation, plus Kihei is known as the pivoting point to all Maui activities! With six miles of sun-kissed beaches, it’s no secret why Kihei has become a favorite destination for so many people.

This house is located 2 blocks from the Post office, grocery stores, restaurants, and shops. We are 1 block from Waipuilani Beach park. This is an ideal place to watch the beautiful Maui sunsets and to see the whales during whale season. You can see West Maui Mountain, Lanai, Molokini and Kahoolawe from the shoreline. We are 1 mile from The Kamaole Beaches, 5 miles from Makena and 12 miles from the airport. There is a bus stop right down the street.

Our property is a multi-dwelling residential property. We have mature trees, grassy areas, tropical plants and palms and coconut trees. You will have access to boogie boards, ice chest, sand toys, snorkels and masks, beach chairs and beach towels. We also have a kayak you can borrow when it is not being used.

There is a gas grill for everyone to use.

If you bring your laptop, I have wireless Internet. In addition, your daily rate also includes your check out cleaning service, all taxes, and totally free parking. There are absolutely no hidden charges or fees! Don't pass up this tropical paradise.

Check In
  • This little cottage was a great location and very good amenities. Snorkel gear and beach towels made it easy to enjoy the area. It was also a very short walk to the beach for a walk in the morning.

  • I had great time with my family at Don and Joy's house. It was very clean, had everything we need (soap, towels, boogi boards, beach chairs, different seasonings in the kitchen and so on). The house was just like the pictures and located in a safe and quite area. Safeway is about 5 min away so we often went there to buy things to cook (safeway member card is also attached to the key). It's kind of in the middle of the maui island so it was easy to travel to both east and west side of the island. A very minor thing that bothered was the small ants in the bathroom.

  • Don and Jerry were very friendly and helpful hosts. The cottage was extremely well equipped and we particularly benefited from the beach gear, toiletries, and kitchen supplies. Kihei was a great location for touring the whole island and this property represented excellent value for money.

  • We loved Don and Joy's place! It was so convenient to all the south Maui beaches, while not feeling like we were in the thick of it. The convenience of having access to beach chairs, beach towels, etc was awesome. After a day at the beach we could come back to relax on the lanai, grill some dinner, shower and relax in relative privacy. We hope to return!

  • We had a great stay at Joy's place. The house is very clean and cozy, exactly like the pictures. The location is very close to the beach and other facilities. Joy is very nice and helpful. She even helped us rent a car at a much lower price than the market. She also let us borrow several towels after we check out. We hope we could stay there longer but the next day has already been booked. But we will definitely recommend this place to other people who is visiting Maui.

  • Don and Joy's place was a great find. In addition to those mentioned in the house description, They were very considerate to provide almost any other thing that you might need for your holiday: stuff for the beach, picnic boxes and plastic cutlery, extra sets of towels and lots of electric kitchen appliances! We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend it.

  • My son told us of his good experiences with Airbandb and so I chose to give it a try for a trip to Maui and Kauai with a friend!..

    We loved Don and Joy's little cabin. First impression, it was so clean and neat! The substituting couple for them were so helpful
    with information and a loan of a smart phone charging cord! (found a replacement at the Radio Shack).

    As we investigated the local beaches and shopping areas, we found some real treasures! and beautiful pictures to take home.
    Joy had left a list of restaurants in the cabin and we tried a couple of them.

    We went to and expensive, but worth it, Luau up in Lahaina. The food and drinks selection was extraordinary as was entertainment. There were predinner activities for the kids, the opening of the pit where the pigs were cooked and a historical
    narrative that accompanied the hula dancing. the numerous costume changes added to the show.

    I agree with the people who have found this bandb so conveniently located! We loved the forest walk north of Lahaina and the costal drive north of it. We got down into upcountry to see art and did part of the road to Hana.

    We liked the food at the Three S Bar and Grill complete with live music and outside deck to eat on!

    We want to come back to Don and Joy's and stay longer!

    Many thanks for providing us such a pleasant introduction to exploring Maui.

  • We loved this place! This little cottage is totally charming in every way! It's the perfect location for a couple, friends, or a family. We stayed here only one night, after a week in a timeshare condo in Kahana. Next time we'll forgo the timeshare and spend all our time here! This place is much cozier, much better equipped, much more convenient to everything and everywhere. And Don and Joy are wonderful hosts. They offer so many amenities, such as beach towels and equipment, BBQ, and lots of kitchen supplies, though unfortunately we weren't there long enough to take advantage of them. We would most definitely return to this place for an extended stay.

    Mahalo, Don and Joy!!

  • Don and Joy's place is super comfy, right near the airport (15 min?), and just on the north side of Kihei - there were comfy beds, a great little kitchen, beach stuff for playing and a bunch of movies for the kiddo to watch - they were both super nice and we loved it there! also a 2 person sea kayak that was a real delight! the beach that's close is not the most sandy or soft but it did have some amazing coral areas that were super fun to look around in! awesome spot!
