NOTE: The waterfall shown in photos is seasonal and very intermittent.
Guests have access to the large grassy area in front of the rental and exploring in the stream bed, when the water is not running.
Interaction with Guests
We greet our guests and check with them on occasion, however we like to give them complete privacy and invite them to call us if they need anything, or have questions.
Our guests continually comment on how conveniently located we are; we are near attractions, shopping, restaurants and beaches. Our closest neighbors are about 1/4 mile away so there are no barking dogs, blaring TVs or noisy neighbors....very peaceful.
You must rent a car if you are visiting Maui. Maui is not heavily populated and most areas are separated by great distances - and there really are not many bike paths. The bus service is used mostly to transport workers to and from work in the more populated ares of Maui - and the shopping center.
Other Things to Note
We have one cat, Henry. If you are a cat lover we can arrange for a visit. We also have 6 chickens wandering the property - no roosters.
Sometimes we have extra fresh, organic eggs which we share with our guests.
Two non-smoking adults only - no additional persons.
The living room has a spacious bench from Bali (large enough to sleep on) and a beautiful tribal Ikat weaving
What an absolutely amazing place! Not enough good things can be said about Ginger Falls and the lovely hosts Sunny and Bob. We LOVED our 6-night stay to kick off our honeymoon in Maui. We truly wish we stayed here the entire 12 nights we had in Maui. We left to Lahaina after staying here and it was good, but it wasn't Ginger Falls/Makawao/Paia. And no Sunny and Bob!
The property is off the beaten path - in the best way possible. Driving back to it day after day after exploring Maui was the perfect way to end the day.
The actual guest home was PERFECT! Amazing accommodations with all the essentials and more. Bed and linens were so comfortable - better than a hotel. Shower was great! 2 little fridges were perfect to keep snacks and drinks cold. Coolers and Maui beach sheets for the beach (we bought 2 of the Maui Beach Sheets - they've become a beach essential). Could not ask for anything more. Sunny was such a great host! She left us to our own, but offered little tips here and there to help make sure we explored all the area had to offer. It felt like we were on our own property - very hands off approach, but we knew if we needed ANYTHING at all, that we had great hosts that could help us out.
Must do's: Friday Night street fest in Makawao. Paia Fish Market - soooo good. Mama's Fish House - AMAZING meal. Flatbread Company (we noticed they have locations all over north america so were a little hesitant to try it, but it was such a great experience) Paia as a whole is a great little beach town. We went through there daily. Stop at Ho'okipa Beach Park for sure! We just happened to pop in here the day we went to Mama's Fish House. We were out in the water in the afternoon and all of a sudden saw a couple giant sea turtles just swimming by. By the time we left, they made their way to the beach to sleep for the night. We went to our Mama's Fish House reservation, and decided to go back to the beach to catch the sunset. 9 turtles were on the beach. By the time we left that night, there were about 30 on the beach. So amazing. We went back the next morning and saw 2 seals had also made their way on the beach. Such a wonderful surprise!
There's probably so much I'm missing, but as I said, words couldn't describe it all anyway. It was truly an amazing stay, and if you're headed to Maui, Ginger Falls is a great place to keep as your home-base. Can't recommend this enough!
Wow! Reviews don't get much better than that! Thank you Kyle and Jen. Feeling very proud that we made your stay special. But the people reading this need to know that you two are the sweetest, coolest, darling couple - just look at that picture! Thanks too for taking the time to write all the tips for future guests - very helpful. I'm adding....at the Fish Market have the Mahi Burger - you will go back for more! Kyle and Jen, put us on your list for a return visit....maybe your 5th wedding anniversary. Or anytime! Aloha Nui Loa (lots of aloha) Sunny & Bob
We just returned from a 4 night stay at Ginger Falls for our honeymoon. It was a perfect property and Sunny/Bob could not have been more gracious hosts. The cottage is even dreamier than the pictures present and the location was exactly what we were looking for in UpCountry. We will definitely be back for another stay!
Ariana and Chuck were fantastic guests! They were on their honeymoon so of course they were happy, happy, happy - but I think they are both just that kind of people :-) We didn't see much of them, but when they were here we hardly knew it. They left the rental in amazing condition - very respectful guests. They are welcome back here any time!
Amazing piece of tranquil paradise in Maui! We loved every minute of our stay here. The drive way is filled with lush greens and there's a beautiful waterfall once you turn the corner. It's not always running but we were lucky and got to play in it. You can hear the water running while you sleep too! The apartment is decorated beautifully and every detail is thought of. The patio has a great jacuzzi tub perfect for two, a relaxing place to read and table to eat. We grilled two nights and had everything we needed to cook.
The shower is glass on the roof so you feel as of your outside. The bed was comfy and cozy. No need for air conditioning. It's actually quite cool inside and we had to use the blankets. Everything about ginger falls is magical!
Sunny was a great host, she even ordered the mayweather fight for us! There was fresh fruit and banana bread for the morning, coffee and tea. Very private stay but the hosts are just a call away. We also got a couple visits from Henry the cat!
There not one negative thing I can think of about this place. We honestly didn't want to leave and wished we had booked longer.
This was the most AMAZING place! Sunny and Bob were always very helpful and made our vacation truly a one to remember. Ginger Falls is beautiful and soo relaxing. We were lucky to have the waterfall (which is right outside the room) in full force after our first night. We opted to even sleep on the patio to the calming sound. There is also a jacuzzi tub on the patio which I must have not noticed. Beautiful decor, like a modern Hawaii feel that we just loved. This far exceeded our expectations. If this place is available when I come to Maui I will get it every time.
Ginger Falls is the perfect little hideaway for when you want to escape the fast pace of everyday and just relax to the sound of a waterfall right outside your front door and an orchestra of birdsong. Our stay at Ginger Falls was wonderful, the accomadation was exactly how we had imagined... A very high standard with everything you would need during your stay provided for from fresh towels to tea and coffee. Sunny and Bob were great hosts and were always on hand with advice on where the best places are to visit on the island of Maui to helping locate lost rucksacks!! We would highly recommend Ginger Falls as the perfect base to explore the beautiful island of Maui, it's the ideal place to just relax at the end of the day.
Katie and David stayed at Ginger Falls during part of their honeymoon - we loved having them! Although we did not see a lot of them we thoroughly enjoyed the times we did interact.....they enjoyed everything they did on Maui, and I am happy to have provided some tips in that area. Katie and David came a long way (from the UK) and if they ever make that long trip again we would welcome them with open arms. They are great guests.
We really loved our stay at Ginger Falls, Bob & Sunny where excellent hosts with lots of good tips on the surrounding area. Upon arriving we found fresh fruit, banana bread, and everything we needed for tea & coffee. Patio was so peaceful for morning breakfast, and the Bali bed so comfortable for those evenings when you want to unwind. Great location away from the hussle of the resort strips & only 10 min or less to Paia & 5 min to Makawao. Would highly recommend and will return next time where in Maui.
My fiancee and I stayed at Ginger Falls for one week. We had a lovely stay, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone considering staying here.
Ginger Falls is located in a secluded and rural area, as is noted in the listing description, but don't let that scare you away. It was a quick drive away from towns like Makawao and Paia, where we found ourselves most days. (Make sure to check out Mana Foods if you're in that neck of the woods.) But the location is what makes Ginger Falls so special: the property itself is peaceful, tranquil, and serene. We woke up each morning to the sound of tropical birds!
We found the apartment itself to be clean, tidy, well-equipped, and well-decorated. The pictures don't lie! I know it sounds cliche, but it felt like home to us for our week here. The small but well-stocked kitchen was great -- we cooked breakfast everyday and dinner a few times during our stay. The bed was very comfortable, the internet was fast, the jacuzzi was relaxing, and the waterfall shower was great! What more can you ask for? Sunny and Bob were kind, helpful, hospitable, and welcoming. They've put together a detailed and informative guidebook for guests that we referred to frequently. It was clear that they put a lot of thought into making our stay comfortable.
Staying at Ginger Falls allowed us to experience a different side to Maui than we had before, and we will look back fondly on our trip.
We loved having Vibhav & Shreya. They were perfect guests. I had many emails back and forth with Vibhav prior to their arrival and was so impressed at how polite and well thought all of his communications were....I was really looking forward to his arrival. When they arrived he was everything I though he would be - and more. We enjoyed our occasional interactions - and helping them with suggestions on where to go. When they left our rental it almost felt like they had never been there - it was so clean and orderly. So - would I recommend them to other property owners? YES! We would love to have them come back and stay again in the future.
