I can say without a doubt that Maxi and Woody are one of the best hosts you will ever come across. We were greeted by Woody upon arrival who took time off to ensure that we had all the details we needed. This included: * run through of property facilities and amenities including…

Wonderful host, comfortable space, central location to all the best beaches & restaurants! If you are a light sleeper, be advised there is not much insulation and you may hear the noise from the second floor.

Maxi and Woody were incredible hosts and their place is fantastic. The kitchen was very well stocked, the space was very clean and inviting, and there were so many thoughtful little extras they had included (soaps, shampoos, beach chairs and towels, etc). The location is very cen…

My wife and I spent seven nights in Maxi’s Ohana and it was one of our best AirBnB experiences ever. Upon arrival we were greeted by Maxi and Woody and given a warm welcome to our home for the next week. There was more than enough space for the two of us. The Ohana is well furni…

You couldn’t really ask for a better location in Kihei. It’s central to the whole island and only 25 minutes from the airport. Floor plan and amenities are all pretty darn good, and they included use of beach gear (boogie board, umbrella, etc), which came in handy. The place also…

Response from Maxi:
Aloha Mac Neill, I am so sorry that you had a noise disturbing experience in our Ohana (which is advertised as a "Mother in law Apartment" in our house and it states clearly that we live upstairs) and we actually have to walk in our own home upstairs and no , we don't have cheep plywood - we actually have a really nice hardwood floor and also guests who walk across to the Lanai. Houses in Hawaii are made out of "swinging" material - and now most of them (unless made out of concrete" are not sound proof ) so , if you want that - please rent a room at the "Grand Wailea or " Andaz" for $ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) a night...insulation is not something in the Hawaiian tradition or a necessity - life here is open air - and it comes with even hearing things. We don't advertise our home as a mediation hub - and we are clear about us living here and need to be able to get up in the morning (and yes, people in Hawaii get up very early, including us because we go paddling before we go to work ) We became hosts on Air BNB because we wanted to "share" our home and "Mother in law Apartment" with people who want to explore the island and enjoy staying here - and we had nothing but good experiences. Everybody realized that Maui is not a cheap place to vacation and to get an entire 500 sq. foot Apartment for $105 a night is pretty much unheard of. So , I am sorry you felt that you got a bad deal. Your review made me re-think the Air BNB community and the original idea and what everything should be about - we are not a hotel - and are we are not a Condo with vacation rental - but in order to share our home with guests we had to apply for an actual "B&B license" - which is a 6-10 month process and it requires us to comply with every regulation we have on Maui - so, we did that, because we did not want to be another "illegal" rental on Maui - well.... when the owner lives on the property the license has to be a B&B license - which means "one is a live on site host" ..... it does not mean we need to serve breakfast - we do have a private room we share with other guests and because they don't have a kitchen or access to a kitchen they do get breakfast. But for people who want the Apartment downstairs we are not able to serve breakfast. but we are still classified as a "B&B" - these are the rules on Maui. So, as much as much as I appreciate your review - which is the only negative review out of over 200 guests - I have to say that you are quite out of line and actually made me took my place of "instant booking" because that does not seem to work, as we realized that people don't really read through all the " important info" and just " click and accept" without really reading..... And as for soundproofing floors: we looked into it - and we would love to sound-proof our house - here is what we learned:" " Soundproofing for homes To quiet household noise, you'll need to reduce vibrations, plug sound leaks, and absorb sounds. Secret #1: Extra Drywall. ... Secret #2: The Caulk Sandwich. ... Secret #3: Mass-Loaded Vinyl. ... Secret #4: Plugging Sound Leaks. ... Secret #5: Absorbing Sound with Acoustic Panels. ... Secret #6: Quieting Ambient Noise. More items... How to Soundproof Walls | DIY Soundproofing Tips - HouseLogic (Website hidden by Airbnb) so that cost about $ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) ; so in order to make to allow people to get an entire Apartment soundproofed , I would not be able to offer the reasonable price I do. and again, I am so sorry you had such a bad experience. In the Aloha spirit, Maxi

My husband and I have been living and working on Maui for 5 years now and we love to be able to share the Aloha spirit. We lived in many places both in the US and Europe and feel more at home here than anywhere else. It is a privilege to be able to share the unique island cult…
