About this listing

This is a licensed Vacation rental home in Kihei. It is a spacious 2 bedroom house with a large lanai and many amenities. License number is STKM (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) TAT number is W(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

The space


This unique property is a two bedroom, single-family dwelling with a 2 bedroom cottage next door. It is fenced in on three sides and two blocks from the ocean. The large lanai is a great place for your morning coffee and a good book. In the evenings enjoy a barbecue and a quiet evening. The trees shade the property and the trade winds keep things cool.

This is a vacation rental so we do not serve breakfast.

This house is located 2 blocks from the Post office, grocery stores, restaurants, and shops. We are 1 1/2 blocks from Waipuilani Beach park. This is an ideal place to watch the beautiful Maui sunsets and to see the whales during whale season. There are also turtles offshore that can be seen by kayak. You can see West Maui Mountain, Lanai, Molokini and Kahoolawe from the shoreline. We are 1 mile from The Kamaole Beaches, 5 miles from Makena and 12 miles from the airport. There is a bus stop right down the street.

Our property is a multi-dwelling residential property. We have mature trees, grassy areas, tropical plants and palms and coconut trees. You will have access to boogie boards, ice chest, sand toys, snorkels and masks, beach chairs and beach towels. We also have a kayak you can borrow when it is not being used.

There is a charcoal grill outside your house or a gas grill for everyone to use.

If you bring your laptop, I have wireless Internet. In addition, your daily rate also includes your check out cleaning service, all taxes, and totally free parking. There are absolutely no hidden charges or fees! Don't pass up this tropical paradise.

We also have a 3 bedroom house (license number BBKM (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) on an adjacent property. Groups traveling together can have their privacy by renting separate places when available, but enjoy the close proximity of being together.

This property is very close to restaurants, the post office, grocery stores, shops, and the bus stop. This cozy two bedroom home will meet all your expectations of wanting to get away from it all, but still being close enough to walk to everything.

Our guest book is filled with comments about how much people have enjoyed the experience of renting a house verses a condo or hotel. This house is truly a home away from home. We have lots of repeat renters who say this is their favorite place to stay.

Guest access

Washer/dryer, boogie boards, ice chests, beach chairs, beach towels, barbecue, free parking right next to your front door, etc. We supply you with 2 rolls of toilet paper and 1 roll of paper towels to get you started. You can purchase additional supplies as you need them. The washer/dryer are free but you supply your own detergent for your personal laundry. We don't expect you to wash your sheets and towels when you depart. We supply your dish soap as well as personal bar soaps for bathing. Wifi is included. We have a kayak that you can walk over to Waipuilani Beach Park when available.

Interaction with guests

We live on an adjacent property so are available if you need anything. We can give you information about the island if you need us to. But, we respect your privacy and want you to have the perfect vacation and enjoy your vacation home the way you want to enjoy it. We have lots of repeat families who come year after year and are like family to us, but we also are very aware of people needing their space.

Other things to note

We try to keep our prices very reasonable so we don't serve breakfast as you have your own kitchen. We get you started on supplies like paper towels (2 rolls), toilet papers (2 rolls), trash bags and dishsoap. When you run out you can pick up supplies at the local supermarket. There is a washer/dryer. We don't supply detergent for your personal laundry. We don't expect you to do your own linens and towels when you leave, but depending on your length of stay you may wish to do some laundry. There are extra sheets and towels in the closets. This is your home away from home, not a resort so thank you for understanding. Tax Id: STKM (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Don and Joy'

Don & Joy give you all the privacy you need, as long as you're respectful, but are still available immediately if you need anything. We had a wonderful stay. We aren't party animals so the location was perfect because it wasn't super tourist-y but was still close to plenty of things! And still close enough to the tourist-y things.

Do not judge a book by its cover. The pictures shown here do not do this home justice. My family truly enjoyed staying at Don and Joy's home. This home is very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable, quiet and has everything you need. Great location, just minutes from stores/restaurants/beach. Would definitely stay again in the future!

A very comfortable and conveniently located home with everything you could possibly need on a vacation in Maui. The place was very clean and nicely decorated. We got to use the bbq and ate on the very spacious and clean patio. Although our stay was short, we enjoyed every moment here and would highly recommend!
