What a great place to start our Hawaii vacation! Gary and Marianne were fantastic hosts and their home was very comfortable and inviting. The seashell room made us feel at home. The room is right outside the kitchen but at no time did I remember hearing any noise. Each morning we woke to the sounds of bird chirping and roosters calling. You couldn't ask for a more peaceful wake up. We really loved the private bathroom outside the room and the amazing shower. We were only here for two nights before moving on to Hana but we'll definitely be looking to stay longer the next time we're in Maui.
I highly recommend Gary and Marianne and their space. The bed was one of the best beds I've ever slept on, I adored it! The house is gorgeous, high ceilings, great wood, beautiful furnishings, large bath, a total treat! Also the quietest surroundings, no motorcycles, road noise, or garbage trucks!
Wonderful twenties house, fully restored and updated by Gary. Great location, actually a mile from Makawoa, great access to the upcountry and Paia, the Hana Hwy. The blurb on airbnb indicated that there was kitchen access, which we were counting on. But Marianne made it clear that we were only welcome if we did not "get in the way". We only boiled water for tea, poured cereal for breakfast, made sandwiches in the morning and stored a little food in the fridge. Marianne did not want us heating food or cooking! Guest TV use was secondary to owners' use and entertaining friends. Got the impression Gary and Marianne are still learning to set boundaries between their business and their home. Bedroom was lovely but comfortable Serta mattress was small. We were uncomfortable with lack of curtains on one window and door that did not lock. Gary had to troubleshoot the wifi network for 2 hours for us to get internet access. Parking was a bit tight when there were other guests present. Bathroom was great.
Gary and Marianne were wonderful hosts and very accommodating of our late arrival and delayed flight. The house was warm and had everything we needed!
Gary and Marianne have a beautiful home. The room is charming and they are very lovely conscious hosts. Thanks again. Mahalo
Great comfortable king bed and strong hot water pressure for your shower. Wonderful hosts, explain the island and what not to miss.
Our flight was late coming in, and the pizza and salad they fed us was a godsend. The quaint cottage was clean, had everything and was in a terrific location.
Thank you Gary and Marianne
We had a great stay in Maui. Gary and Marianne were great hosts. They were very friendly and gave us good information. Our room was very nice and everything was really clean. As we read in other reviews, the room didn't provide a lot of privacy since the bathroom and bedroom are right off the main floor kitchen. The location was the perfect place to start the drive along the road to Hana. Paia is also a 10 minute drive away, it's a great town to grab food in and feels a lot more authentic than the touristy West shore. We would recommend staying here again to explore Maui's upcountry.
We highly recommend the Maui Jewel Cottage for your trip to Maui. Gary and Marianne are wonderful hosts. The kitchen even had a blender for smoothies! It is a peaceful retreat.
Nice place, and nice hosts. Gary and Marianne are very friendly and knowledgable about the area, and helped me plan. I would love to stay again whenever I'm in the area again!
Gary & Marianne have been great hosts! They were very accommodating when we wanted to leave our luggage much before our checkin time and also gave us great suggestions and insights on Maui.
Marianne and her son are very nice people, my apartment was spotless after their stay. I would highly recommend them. Thank you for coming and I wish the best of luck to Julian for his work at the circus school.
Gary and Marianne we such great guests!! We loved having them share our home with us for the weekend. They are such fun people and so easy to get along with and talk to. We are so glad they chose to stay with us and would recommend them to other hosts!! We hope they have to come back to Chico for another visit and stay with us again!!! Either that or we will head over to Hawaii and stay with them, as they are fellow hosts themselves.
I stay at Marianne & Gary's house every year and considerate my Christmas getaway. I love the location and you can't beat the price. The Callari's are gracious hosts and will probably become your new friends. The home is tastefully decorated, comfortable and quiet.
Beaches, the road to Hana, the Crater and Mama's Fish house are all a 20 minute drive.
Gary and Marianne have the most beautiful home up in the Haiku area of maui. They are fun & fabulous hosts! I met Marianne through (website hidden) and we quickly connected over our love of essential oils. I love her home because it has old world charm, with deep history and the walls are bursting with LOVE. If you are a traveler looking for a clean, beautiful environment with friendly, kind, and fun hosts then this is the rental for you! Oh and ask Gary to make you some of his awesome sugar free, gluten free cookies for you!
