  • This was a lovely homebase from which to experience Maui. Peaceful & clean. Thank you, Stefan & Chenta.

  • We had a great stay at Stefan and Chenta's place. It's a great location for windsurfing sports like kiteboarding or windsurfing since it's very close to Kahului. It's also along the road to Hana-- an interesting drive along southeast side of Maui with red and black sand beaches, waterfalls, gardens, and pools. The place was clean and communication was easy and great. We had access to a washer and dryer; the kitchen had everything we needed, including some fresh eggs and avocados from their backyard! Would recommend.

  • Overall we had a very nice stay at Stefan and Chenta's house in Haiku. It was a great experience living in a part of a house that is located on a farm like land with fruits of all varieties that you can think of being associated with tropics. I'd say that the garden, the fruits and the fresh eggs from the chicken made it a very unique experiemce for city or suburban dwellers. It is a very central location on Maui island and allows the convenience of going east or west on the island in about an hour or two at the most!
    The living facility itself is very basic so don't have the expectations of a resort like living on Maui! We found the living quarter a bit difficult to settle in the first two days due to the lack of a microwave, a bit run down furniture etc. but the huge kitchen and freedom to cook made up for it and in a few days we began to like the place. Eventually we thought that Strefan and Chenta were truly offering the best value for the buck (what we paid through airbnb) on Maui island and their kind hospitality makes up for everything else!
    This place is perfect for those traveling on a budget and want the choice of having a kitchen to cook while on vacation, enjoy a tropical garden setting and a convenience of being located centrally on the island.

  • We had a wonderful time at Stefan and Chenta's place. We loved the relaxed atmosphere away from the crowds, the beautiful garden with the hammock and the fruits every morning, the DVDs, the style of the Appartement and the guidebooks and maps. Our daughter loved the swings and the baby loved the friendly chicken. Stefan and Chenta are very nice hosts and if it wasn't on the other side of the World we would be back soon!
    We are on a three month trip on the Islands of Hawaii and this was a place to calm down and enjoy.

  • Enough has already been said here about the lodging itself and the abundance of eggs and fruit (season permitting), but special mention must be made of the hosts.

    "Aloha" is a complicated concept. From Wikipedia: "Aloha in the Hawaiian language means affection, peace, compassion and mercy." Ah, if only that were so. Far too often, it seemed to me during my month-long stay in Maui, the word really just meant "hello". This was especially clear to me when it was said through clenched teeth and with a painted on smile. Yeah, well, so the locals get tired of saying "Aloha!" over and over again. Wouldn't you? After all, some 2 million tourists come tromping through their back yards every year.

    But here's the rub: I don't think "aloha" was meant to be just a word. If I'm not mistaken, it's supposed to be a way of relating to others, of deciding how to act toward both loved ones and strangers, even a way of living and being. It's not just what you say, in other words; it's who you are. Well, that seems to be Stefan and Chenta through and through. Obviously I couldn't get to know them very well in a single month, but from all outward appearances, aloha is just in their spirits. Which is to say, here in this place of theirs you'll likely find a little piece of Hawaii—real Hawaii—and I personally will take that experience over some hand-delivered mai-tais and beach-side towel service any day.

    Again, the lodging is lovely for all the reasons that others have given, and Haiku is pleasant enough, a peaceful and easy-going place to visit outside of the tourist zones, but I'd mostly just want to thank our two hosts and their delightful children for making our stay in Maui so thoroughly relaxing, peaceful, and rewarding. Their kindness will be long remembered. Aloha!

  • I was looking for a quiet spot on Maui to write, somewhere with a peaceful setting and the feel of the country without being far from the beach and grocery and restaurants. I found all that at Stefan & Chenta's lovely place!

    The apartment is on the ground floor, with a huge picture window in the living room looking over their spacious back yard. The bedrooms each have windows onto the front yard, and the beds were comfortable. S&C kept me stocked on fresh limes, papaya and eggs (such delicious eggs!), and the kitchen had all the tools I needed to cook, make smoothies, even bake.

    The family is very respectful of space and quiet, but they're also warm and welcoming. They invited me to the beach and for a surf, and it was fun to be included on the various adventures. The children are fun to be with!

    The house is about a 10 minute drive to Paia, which has an excellent natural food grocery, and Haiku town is less than 5 minutes away by car. (It's walking distance, and people walk it, but there's a blind curve in the road so I drove it.)

    I can't recommend this spot enough. I know Maui well, and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

  • We had a lovely time at Stefan & Chenta's unit. The location is amazing and we loved exploring ( and totally loved) this side of the island. We were out most days exploring Maui... The close-by beaches are amazing (Baldwin Beach) and Paia town is charming and very close to Haiku. Our toddler loved roaming their beautiful yard and playing with the chickens.

    I highly recommend it if you're looking for a low-key place to stay.

    Aloha!

About
My wife Chenta and I - together with our two children - have made Maui our home for four years. Chenta was raised on Oahu, and her mother had lived here for many years. Before relocating to Maui we lived in Brooklyn for 15 years. We continue to have a home, family and work there. We've traveled and lived abroad extensively and have many international friends. Chenta is a visual artist and teacher. I'm a writer and filmmaker. We love to camp, hike, surf, have meals on the beach, work in our garden, read, watch films, etc. We also love to meet - and have our children meet - people from all walks of life and from all over the world.
