Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Comfortable and quiet, this studio apartment was perfect for our week-long stay on Maui. We found it an ideal base from which to explore the whole Island. It's private and on a quiet street away from the touristy hustle and bustle of the resorts. In short, just what we were looking for!

    The kitchen was tiny but worked well for us - the fridge was large enough for fixings for a few meals and our leftovers. We cooked on the grill outside as well, which was very nice. We did spot a few ants in the kitchen, so just be sure to keep your food sealed up tight or in the fridge. Dishes and cutlery were very nice and functional.

    We made great use of the beach umbrellas that were provided, and loved that the bathroom had some shampoo and after-sun cream available for our use - saved us from having to rush to the store as soon as we got there.

    Like others, I would recommend installing some screen doors - we would have loved to have the doors open for fresh air - it got stuffy in the evenings - but there were too many mosquitoes about. That said, the small fan provided worked well for circulating air, and the temperature at night was perfect.

    All in all this was a great place to stay, especially for adventurers like us who spend most of our time out and about. Our top recommendations for the island include seeing the sun rise at Haleakala, driving the road to Hana, eating Ululani's Shave Ice, snorkeling, and renting a boogie board & checking out various beaches along the south and west coasts.

  • This was a lovely little room that was off the beaten path. It was up in the mountains so it was cool at night, perfect for sleeping. The host had everything that you could possibly need, including after sun skin repair lotion. It was so quiet and peaceful and was a fantastic home base for us. We went to Oahu after staying here and paid a lot more for a hotel that was not at nice. We would defiantly come back and recommend this place to anyone planning on going to Maui!

  • Almost everything was perfect. Only that we had no Chance to meet Ben personally was a pity.

  • My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. The studio really feels like your own vacation home with a private entrance. It was a very nice and relaxing location throughout our stay.

    The studio was clean, conveniently located and well provisioned. Ben was very responsive to any question or concern we had via Text message.

    The only negative, which is a really minor thing, is that the bed isn't exactly as super comfortable as one would hope.

  • Our stay here was great! Total privacy, centrally located to most of the Island. Great town of Makawao, not too hot in the upcountry. Ben had plenty of provisions to make our stay comfortable. The room was just as described. Thanks Ben for the room.

  • My husnand Dan and I had a wonderful time staying here. We found it clean and quiet and the perfect refuge to rest in after a day visiting the grandkids in Lahaina. Very convenient to Makawoa and the drive down Baldwin to Paia is one of the prettiest roads on the island. Comfey bed, plenty of hot water, privacy and a passionfruit vine right outside the door. Who needs anything more?

  • Nice basic place in the Upcountry area. Internet didn't work for us. The small kitchen was nice. Powerful shower water pressure. There were quite a few bugs inside. They had nice travel info in room and a cooler, chairs, ect to use. Pillows were very uncomfortable. Good deal for the price though and better than a cheap hotel.

  • Ein schönes Mini-Appartment am Rande von Makawao. Perfekt gelegen, um alle Bereiche der Insel zu erkunden. Die Gastgeber waren freundlich und es hat alles geklappt.
