Aloha!....I'm Carrie... I'm happily married 25 years. My husband & I love to cook, relax, and enjoy nature. We have 2 friendly dogs onsite: a F. Shep-Lab mix "Maggie", and a M. JR. Terrier, "Niblet" who is half couch-potato, half Jack Russell. Living only 4 blocks up from the Beach- we definitely enjoy Maui's Beach lifestyle; Swimming, walking the many amazing Beaches nearby, snorkeling, easy hikes, and generally exploring around the Island. Marty's been playing the Ukelele for a few years, and can play several authentic Hawaiian songs...a Heavenly treat to hear him gently strumming in the morning, or early evening. Our property has several Apple-Banana Trees onsite, Coconut Palms, Plumeria Trees and many types of Flowers that we utilize and enjoy. (ie. I bake Homemade Banana Bread using the Bananas right off our own trees, which I serve to our booked Guests).
I dance Hula worship, make Plumeria Flower Leis as hobby, and love to decorate, create, read, cook, garden and bake.
--Our favorite type of Guests? Relaxed, easy going, Quiet, considerate, low key and independent visitors are our favorite! You'll find our whole property super tranquil. : )
You will find us easy going, quiet, early-to-bed kinda people (early to bed, early to rise for the Beach, lol ). It's important for us to take time to enjoy life's beauty and peacefulness. We want you to feel our caring "Aloha", and feel like any Hawaiian "Ohana" (family)....Maui is a very special healing place and was our choice to move here to help my husbands longtime chronic pain condition.
I manufacture and formulate Natural Massage Lotion, as well as my (main) job- Graphic Design & Print brokering for over 30 yrs. -Being able to utilize my artistic creativity has been a true blessing in creating, decorating, adding my own personal style in designing the Ohana, and property grounds. I really love decorating and creating, it makes me happy to see guests enjoy the environment we've worked so lovingly on.
Maui's trade winds, fresh flowing breezes, the Ocean's high mineral salt content, along with all the minerals in the Sand of our many beaches, plus Maui's ambient year long temperatures- experience it, and you'll see why it is a health benefit for many who come here.....and a treat for many who return.
We Love Hosting! we have met so many wonderful visiting couples- and we Really enjoy making you feel welcome & well treated ! Your vacation Ohana is very private and it is detached, (we sleep on the opposite end of the property)- so you have lots of privacy and alone time to come and go very independently.
We've thought of many, little special details in setting up the Ohana, so our guests feel welcome and comfy.....and want you to enjoy the tropical Backyard and Ohana.
By 9pm. all must be quiet, as Maui County wide has a strict ordinance, and we are committed to keeping peaceful existence with our nice neighbors, who are also quiet. :) ......its the Aloha way- to be mindful of others.
We are originally from Southern California. We've been to The Big Island, Oahu, France, Germany, and a few states throughout the Mainland.
Maui is our forever home now.
Our favorite thing that's changed since moving here? .. is the Slower Pace......(the fastest road is 40 mph. (if you want to drive fast)....but expect to drive 20 - 30 m.p.h. on average :-)
Maui pace is S-l-o-w,.. so... R e l a x- enjoy yourself ! , and take in all this Beautiful Island has to teach and show you ! (Ps. Fact: Maui Island has the Most Swimming Beaches of any of the Hawaiian Islands, 81 in all)- and where we're located is the Best Location to all those Amazing Beaches !
I tell my Mainland friends: I always wanted to live in a place that when I went on a Vacation- that's where I'd want to be!.....now we (email hidden) we call "Our little slice of Paradise". Malama pono.
e komo mai!
Aloha Ke Akua Ka Koa
