Lance welcomed us when we arrived with a genuine aloha spirit. He gave us a tour of the studio, along with some recommendations for things to do. The studio was cozy and comfortable, and provided a nice place to rest after long days at the beach. We saw Lance a few times during our stay, and we enjoyed talking to him about his life on the island.
We found this part of the island to be well suited to spending most of our time in swim attire! We found some great beaches for snorkeling and swimming, and also for lounging around. This studio is so close to the beaches, and also to Kihei's bustling tourist shops and nightlife. One day we drove all the way around West Maui, which was easily done from this location.
We thought we would spend more time grilling, but there are so many restaurants in the area and we were often too tired to cook. It was nice to have coffee on the lanai in the morning before heading out for the day. The WiFi worked exceptionally well, so we were easily able to stay connected.
Warm welcome upon arrival by Lance. We really enjoyed all the suggestions he gave us as well as our 'Group therapy session' :) Too bad the trade winds didn't allow us to go out on his boat. He made sure to make us feel welcome and at home (although we do not have an outdoor shower at home ;) ).
Fantastic little studio. 15-20 minute walk to Kihei. Lots of little extras provided like snorkel gear and coolers. Not much air flow at night, so you'll probably need to use the room air conditioner which did the trick.
Did not get a chance to meet Lance - but the room was great!
A perfectly lovely spot to rest my head in paradise. Lane & Elaine are so welcoming and friendly that it felt more like coming home then going on holiday. Their suite and lanai is a beautiful space. I will be back to lay on the swinging bed on the lanai to bask in the sweet smell of the air, sounds of the birds and wind in the trees. They provide great snorkel gear and beach supplies. I will be coming back to this amazing island and great suite. Mahalo.
Wonderful, charming room with excellent hosts! separate entryway and patio area, felt very private! full access to bbq, snorkeling and water equipment! WONDERFUL decorations and room with great outdoor shower (private!), felt very local in the neighborhood and very warm welcome! towels, beach towels, etc all provided! REALLY recommend staying here, above all the northern resorts etc. better experience having done both! we will definitely stay again!
Lance and his family made us feel very welcome and offered there suggestions of things to do during our visit.
Lance and Elaine are wonderful hosts, super-nice.and ready to help. This studio includes pretty much everything you need for a short stay. The backyard is beautiful and has the feel of a private garden. We would highly recommend this place.
Lance and Elaine´s Studio ist einfach wunderbar geeignet um dort seinen Urlaub zu verbringen. Es ist wie beschrieben und alles was man braucht um den Urlaub genießen zu können ist vorhanden. Lance und Elaine sind großzügige, hilfsbereite, freundliche Menschen bei denen ich mich sehr wohl gefühlt habe. Ich kann sie nur weiterempfehlen
We had a great stay at lance and Elaine's! Short walk to the beach. Every amenity was thought of, from towels, water bottles, snorkeling gear and fins, and more. The room was big, bed was super comfy. There were even maps and Maui books in the room, which we definitely made use of. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend to other travelers who want a real Maui experience.
Lance and Elaine are wonderful people. They were very respectful of our home and super easy to get along with. I'd highly recommend them as guests, and look forward to visiting them the next time I'm on Maui!
A perfect studio with all the comforts you need. Lance and Elaine embody the true spirit of Aloha. I will be back to enjoy their warmth and hospitality!
