Description

The space

Relaxing Ohana is a mother -in -law suite, attached to my home, but with a private entrance off the main courtyard. It has a private bathroom. Mini Fridge, Microwave, Coffee maker, etc.

This unit does not have access to the main house, so your free to come and go as you please. Upon checking in you will find wonderful amenities in your room to help make your stay as comfortable as possible. Beach Chairs, Beach Towels, Cooler, Snorkel gear, Boogie Boards, Sunscreen, Shampoo/Conditioner, and much more, are all provided in your room.

Our neighborhood, is quiet, and only a 15 minute walk or less to Parks, beaches, grocery, farmers market, dining, shopping, nightlife/ live music & coffee shops etc.
If you want to learn to surf, stand up paddle or even try a outrigger canoe tour which I highly is also less than 15 minutes away walking and just a few minutes if you drive.

For those who choose not to rent a car, our home is only about a 10 minute walk to the bus stop, or I also recommend renting beach cruiser bicycles/ mopeds from Boss Frogs..also a short walk from my house.

The State of Hawaii Dept. of Taxation requires that all BnB/transient accommodation providers collect a 13% tax. Since I am unable to add a separate charge on airbnb for this tax, it is collected after your arrival.

Guest access

You help yourself to the boogie boards, beach chairs,
umbrellas and snorkel gear in the courtyard.

Interaction with guests

I have prepared a 'Welcome Book' which you will find in the room when you arrive. In the welcome letter, I answer many typical questions and provide the wifi password. Depending on my work schedule you may or may not see me.

The neighborhood

Location, location, location. Close to everything, yet far enough away that our home provides the peace and quiet in the evenings we all need to relax. If you like to take walks, we are within a 10-20minute walk of Starbucks, Foodland grocery, Farmers market, dining, shopping, nightlife, Kalama park (great for watching sunset) and the beautiful Charley Young, Kam I or Cove Park beach.

Getting around

If you decide not to rent a car...there are Maui Bus stops all along South Kihei Road. There are also moped & beach cruiser bicycle rentals at 'Boss Frogs' also on South Kihei Road, just a five minute walk from my home.

Other things to note

We enjoyed our stay, it was a good location- close to the beach and food. We loved the comfy bed and the beach chairs/snorkel gear! All around awesome deal for the price. Kym was nice and accommodating.

This space was perfect for us to explore Maui! Kym provided delicious coffee for mornings. It was a 10 min walk, 3 min bike ride and 2 min car ride to central S Kihei Rd. Perfectly situated on the island to do day trips. We had a late flight and Kym was gracious enough to let us check out much later than usual. She had a great tip for how to best explore the road to Hana. All in all a great experience. We would highly recommend this place to enjoy a Maui holiday. Thanks Kym!

Cozy little hideaway in central Maui. Quick access to highway to head toward anywhere else on Maui. Walkable to nearby food/grocery (10-15min walk). The bed was super comfy! The room is large and inviting. Little extras like sunscreen, bug spray, and shampoo/conditioner were welcome additions! Helpful booklet of local menus and tips/suggestions as well as local promotional magazines for food/activity ideas. Sufficient parking in the drive or on the street.

Fantastic place. The room is huge and spacious with a private bath. Kym provided lots of towels for us to use and even left us some drinks in the fridge. Huge comfortable bed as well. We'll definitely come back on our next stay in Maui!

Kym's place was perfect! Easy to get to, clean, and she was really nice when we messaged. Similar to staying in a hotel room... bedroom and private bathroom with mini fridge, microwave, and toaster oven. Beach bags and towels available. Iron didn't really work for us, but that was ok! My husband was just trying to get a few wrinkles out of a shirt for a wedding. Kym was fine with my sister coming to hang out so we could do each other's hair for the wedding. The bed is super comfy! We would definitely consider staying there again

I grew up on Oahu, and moved to Maui in 1986. Over the years my family has moved here as well and currently, we all reside in Kihei and live within a ten minute driving radius of each other. My sister and mom often come over for early morning coffee. While I am not a coffee drinker, I do love the smell of it in the morning...:)
All genre's of music are of interest to me, so when I am home Pandora is the go to 'station'.
I am a very busy working single mom, typically home later in the afternoon/evening, and in bed by 10:00pm. Independent Travelers, or those that do not require too much attention are best in my home. In my free time I love hiking, movies, writing, surfing (long board), family time, or just taking a mid day nap can be a real treat...lol!

This is where I put down five 'Things' I can't live without:
-Medi -Spa Maui - Gerusa's amazing facials
-Salad Bar at Hawaiian Moons Health Food Store
-Matinee's at Maui Mall...great place to escape the heat
-Romantic dinners at Kula Lodge
-Weekly massage & pedicure at Pedicare in Kihei

Actually I can live without any 'thing'...its the experiences and people in my life that make it extraordinary.

So if you are a independent type of traveler whom values their privacy and does not need or want a lot of attention from myself, and is looking for a clean, comfortable private room to crash in after a wonderful day of exploring Maui, my home is a great fit. Also for those who are on a budget and do not want to rent a vehicle, it is a good fit, as your within a 10-20 minute walking distance of everything from dining, shopping, nightlife, parks, tennis/basketball courts, library, beaches, grocery store, coffee shops, surf school, bike & moped rentals and bus stops.
