Interaction with Guests
I always greet my guests if I am home or it is not too late. All guest rooms have directions to their rooms and access to their keys in a lock box near their room. I am usually available to answer guest questions most of the day. I do not serve any meals but bake often and share with the guests.
Our neighborhood is like an older Hawaiian town. Wailuku is after all, the county seat of Maui. It's a walking town too. Just two blocks up there are an assortment of shops, eateries and boutiques. Six tennis courts are around the corner. They are free and lit at night. The islands best macaroons are found down the street at Maui Macaroons and Artisan Market.
Public transportation is just a block up on Wells Street. The bus is $2. Taxis from the airport run about $25 plus a tip of $3-$5.
Other Things to Note
Since we often have little guests on our property we have carabiners that latch all of our gates. We ask that guests replace them after passing through a gate.
We expect our guests to behave like adults that respect our property and rules like no bottles at the pool except wine. Smoking is permitted out at the pool but be mindful of others in case it bothers them. We do not allow pets. Although we have dogs and cats, they never enter any of the guests rooms. Our pets are not for rent although we've been asked many times. LOL We reserve the right to refuse any guest from acting outside of our house policies. All we ask is that everyone acts responsibly.

Maureen made us feel very welcome. The room was very clean and we had clean towels every other day. The room is very small and shower very small and it is downstairs so you do hear the upstairs and rooms around you. We appreciated the Maui Revealed book that she provided. We took it with us every day to guide us as to what is important to see on Maui. We also utilized the small cooler every day for lunch. We didn't use the beach towels since it rained every day and we didn't go in the pool. She left us homemade goodies every other day. The first day we were there it was quite warm and the room only has a fan so it took a while to cool off. The evenings were quite cool the rest of the time so we left our windows open all day and evening and we kept cool. In all, our experience was excellent for just two of us who had never been to Maui before. For the price I think it is very adequate compared to hotels in Maui. It is in a fairly quiet neighborhood, however, there is a high school across the street which you can hear in the AM. The parking places were very narrow so you really have to be careful parking.
We stayed here the last week of Feb 2015. The place is exactly as Maureen descibed. She was a wonderful host and helped out as needed. We arrived late and she had the room open and ready for us.
As mentioned there is only a Fan and no A/C. The fan helped, but we were still a little warm at night. There was only windows on one side of the room so the breeze does not really go through the room.
The pool was great if you just want a swim and a change from the beech.
Overall it was a great and I would stay with Maureen again.
The description of the room and picture were spot on. There was homemade bread available for us on our arrival. The room was clean, neat and cozy. The neighborhood was residential and quiet. Maureen had a book with helpful hints that I used and found quite helpful. The pool was cozy and the neighbors were friendly.
Maureen's guest house was an A+++ Absolutely perfect! Comfortable in every way and located in a very nice quiet neighborhood only minutes from the cutest town with everything -very close by. The pool and backyard and entire grounds are beautiful. Super clean and every detail is perfect. I hope to return very soon. The best spot on the north shore of Maui and 10 min from the airport.
I'm a budget traveler, and I thought the guest house was fairly priced and had a funky charm. Maureen is warm, friendly, and helpful. The place is obviously well cared for and has enjoyed lots of visitors over the years. I really liked the landscaping, given how close it is to the center of Wailuku. It's not your typical hotel landscaping with palm trees and walkways and so forth; the side and backyard are thick with deep green vegetation and flowering bushes and trees, like you might find in a private home where somebody loves their yard and garden. Peace and quiet is important to me, and it was reasonably quiet, given the amount of human beings and activity nearby.
The reservation was canceled 44 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
