About this listing

comfortable room with queen size bed and private balcony. The bathroom is shared with only one other room and only if someone is renting the same time you are.

The space

As soon as you walk into this room, you (EMAIL HIDDEN)fy queen bed with 100% cotton sheet, private balcony w/ bistro set for two. Large walk in closet is a nice bonus for clothes and luggage storage, still with plenty of shelf space left for the treasures you'll collect during your adventure. Beach & Bath towels are provided.
While the balcony does not have an ocean view, the trees surrounding the home make you feel like your in the middle of your own oasis, and the sunset, if your not on the beach can be just as relaxing sitting on the balcony.

Please note the bathroom is shared with one other room, if needed there is a 1/2 bath on the first floor and an outdoor hot shower on the back deck. Yes, it has shampoo/conditioner.

Our neighborhood is quite, and relaxed, as it should be living on Maui. No rush, no stress.

Our home is a large, charming older fixer upper, within walking distance to everything in Kihei. shopping, at Kalama Center, Kukui Mall, library,
Starbucks, internet cafe, roller skating at Kalama park, tennis courts also at Kalama park, and all along So. Kihei Road, gorgeous beaches...take your pick. Surfing, kayaks, canoe paddling and Stand up paddle boards rentals across from Cove Park beach/Kalama Park. Foodland is also within walking distance, for grocery shopping.

If you choose not to rent a car, there is a public bus system it is a $1.00 per ride. However, when you first arrive the bus is not an option as they do not allow luggage. I can arrange a taxi for you, just send me the flight information. The ride is typically 30-40 minutes depending of time of day and traffic. If your interested in using 'beach cruisers' bicycles, mopeds, or want to book tours, Boss Frogs is just down the street, they rent all kinds of transportation options.

CAR RENTAL Options you can book on the internet (local small businesses that are affordable):
1. Kihei Rent A Car
2. Bio-Beetle, eco friendly car rental alternative
3. Allsave

EATS: Cost of food is crazy expensive here at the grocery stores, however there are many great little locally owned eateries that offer home cooked meals at very reasonable prices. A list of them will be provided in your room. There is also a farmers market in our neighborhood, which is great for picking up fresh fruits/Banana bread for breakfast.

Laundry: Lipoa Street Laundromat is only about 3-5 minute drive away...if that...they offer coined washer/dryer, or you can drop your dirty linens and they will wash/fold them for you for a reasonable fee, and you can pick them up after a day of sightseeing. My personal washer/dryer is not available for use.

The State of Hawaii requires all persons running BnB or transient accommodations to collect a 13% tax. As I cannot add it on as a separate charge with airbnb, it is collected when you arrive. You may pay with cash, or check.

Guest access

Please note, there is no kitchen use, too many unsavory experiences with guests not washing their dishes or cleaning the stove after cooking.
There are many places to eat within walking distance or a short drive. I've filled the 'Welcome Book' with menus from my favorites. Most dining establishments have a 50% off 'Happy Hour' with includes items from their menu...usually between the hours of 3-6.

Interaction with guests

Typically I'm not around too much, so my interaction with guests is minimal. This is why I put together a 'Welcome Book' to help you get familiar with our home and neighborhood. If I am home I'm busy cleaning, or working at my desk...and during those moments am always happy to meet my guests and answer questions or give advice if asked.

The room looks different than is on pictures. The balcony is not comfortable at all. Do not expect any polite welcome such as handshaking, etc. To be honest we did not feel welcome in this house and we were thinking to (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication is only through guidebook in room or putting message on room's door. We did not expect any long conversation but at least some politeness. It seems that our present annoyed. Experience with this accommodation was the worst what we had in Hawaii. Not recommened it at all.

Kym was a great and super responsive host. The cocobutter lotion in the bathroom and the snorkel gear and beach towels were huge helps for our trip! We got to use the private balcony to dry our stuff overnight and use the huge walk in closet to store all our stuff and for changing. The location is walkable to a ton of great stuff in Kihei including thrift shops, great restaurants, scuba (recommend B&B scuba!) and the beach. We truly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Kym and her home :)

Great location within easy walking distance of the center of Kihei and all the good restaurants and bars. Great access to the rest of the island too. Kym's place was very clean and comfortable - highly recommended. Kym's welcome book is also full of useful recommendations for things to do!

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!

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.
