Our private one bedroom studio is perfect for a couple interested in exploring the upcountry and north shore areas of Maui. We are a few minutes from quaint Makawao town.
Private studio located in upcountry Maui, 10 minutes from north shore beaches, Kahului, and Paia town. Enjoy the cool breezes of upcountry living with it's own entrance, bathroom, and patio. The studio also has it's own kitchenette and also comes with wifi. We have space for surfboards and kite or windsurfing gear.
Some of the highlights of this space include the delightful outside patio (also private) where you can enjoy your meals. It borders 35 acres of pristine fields (lots of deer and birds), providing a peaceful and tranquil spot. We have a gas grill available that is perfect for an afternoon BBQ.
We recommend that you have a car although the Maui bus has a stop at the bottom of our street (two minute walk). Makawao town is a mile away and has some quaint shops and restaurants.
Quiet, small, and friendly. Only a couple minutes from Makawao town with a grocery around the corner. Lovely views with a huge field behind the house with hundreds of deer.
There is a bus stop at the end of our street however we do not recommend you rely on the bus as your sole means of transportation as the routes are limited. Please check the Maui bus website for more details ((website hidden))
Maximum occupancy is two persons. You can contact us anytime between 9am and 9pm if you have any questions or problems. We have laundry facilities but please call us to schedule a time to use them.
We stayed here for our first 3 nights in Maui. The suite is simple, cozy, and comfortable. We were glad to have the kitchenette/BBQ to cook some of our own meals but we also ate at a place recommended by Ben - Market Fresh Bistro - they have an amazing Fish Benedict! There were mosquitoes out on the patio area in front of the suite so we mostly ate inside. All in all, a great place to stay and convenient base for exploration of Upcountry and Haleakala.
Ben's private studio is exactly same like on a photos. I have to say thank you to Ben to his kindly attitude before our reservation and during our vacation. He gave us many advise. Private studio is great and clean, and location is absolutely perfect to explore all Maui Island.
Simple basement studio, with a nice private entrance and back yard. The room had all we needed as a couple, it was thoughtful of Ben to also stock it with beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler and umbrella. Well stocked small kitchen, and even some nice organic shampoo :) Cozy! No sidewalks in the neigborhood, and a bit of a walk to town, but very convenient driving access to the island's highways- to town, up the mountain, to Kula.
Ben was not at home when I arrived, but I was able to reach him by phone and from our conversation he made me feel welcome and that if I needed anything to call. The place had everything shown and was even nicer. Ben thought of everything you would need to make your stay comfortable. Everything was clean and in very good condition. I would stay there again.
Wir haben Ben zwar nicht persönlich kennen gelernt, aber alles war einwandfrei. Das Appartement ist super ausgestattet; alles was man braucht ist vorhanden - und noch viel mehr. Vom Haartrockner bis zur Microwelle und von Strandhandtüchern bis zu Strandstühlen ist alles da. Das Appartement war sehr sauber und ruhig. Es liegt im hinteren Bereich des Hauses mit eigenen kleinen Garten. Die Kommunikation mit Ben per Mail hat prima funktioniert. Danke Ben!
Our stay at Ben' s place was excellent. He has an amazing personality. He is kind, friendly and really responsive on any questions you might have. The room was really clean, big and we felt like home. We also ate a couple of times at home (saved a lot of money :) ). By the way Ben also provided us with beach towels, beach chairs, an umbrella. Highly recommend! Thank you Ben for a great stay.
Although I did not meet Ben until the last day of my eight night stay, I felt that he, via email, was always there for me, responding helpfully and thoughtfully to my questions about this or that. He should be a hotelier, for in attentiveness and responsiveness he'll surely best the staff at the Four Seasons beach resort---my frequent choice for swimming (Wailea Beach). The studio is as described, yet saying that leaves out all the attention to detail that Ben puts into my/your stay: beach towels, chair and umbrella; fine, organic shampoos and conditioners; splendid guidebook (use it, it's the best around), etc., etc. And if you like privacy (with outdoor space), here you have it---terrific for a couple who want to just loll the evening away. Yes, the kitchenette is small, yet it served my purposes well, with a fridge, microwave, and toaster oven (there's a grill outside that I didn't use)....Some tips: Hansen Road is a good shortcut to the South Maui beaches (see guidebook mentioned above)... A mall with most everything (e.g.,supermarket) is nearby---head back to rte 37, continue past it, then at the next stoplight, take a right. Continue until you see an Ace Hardware on the left....Ben's airbnb is one of the two best that I have stayed at...Lucky me..
