Our one week stay at John's 'tree house' was wonderful. The house is spacious, has marvelous views, a complete kitchen and amenities, and is comfortably weathered. It's location is especially convenient for touring the east side of Maui as it is very near the Hana Road. John as a host is very friendly, helpful, responsive, and available should any needs arise. I would recommend a stay at John's peaceful tree house on your next trip to Maui.
John is a very gracious host. He was helpful and very responsive before we traveled, as well as while we were there. He provided extras, such as snorkel gear, beach towels, etc. The cottage is a separate addition to a house in a quiet residential neighborhood. It has a view of the Pacific and a great screened porch. It's very simple - exactly what we wanted. Pretty close to the "old Hawaii" - no fancy hotels or ritzy shops around. The kitchenette is ideal for breakfast. Location is perfect for exploring Maui. Good value for the money.
Quiet neighborhood, friendly host, nice room & bed... great view !
A great stay - clean and all as described. John was very friendly by phone and text - we arrived late so we didn't actually get to meet him, but we felt well taken care of. Nice stay!
The outside is undergoing some renovation/construction but everything was quiet. Inside of the cottage is as described. Lovely neighborhood; especially loved sleeping in the screened-in room with the sound of birds, insects and rain outside. Cottage is in a central location for exploring Hana Highway and also upcountry, north side beaches, but easy drive to the south side as well. We didn't spend too much time at the cottage, but it was so peaceful there--very different experience than staying in a resort or hotel.
John was an incredibly warm and welcoming host. The location of the home/property was ideal considering its proximity to key destinations and lush surroundings -- the view of the ocean is amazing! This place felt like home and we will definitely return. Staying here and meeting John's friends is one of our favorite memories of Maui.
Johns Haus ist ein Erlebnis. Wenn alle Falt-Fenster - die um das halbe Haus führen - geöffnet sind oder wenn man sich auf dem grossen Balkon befindet, ist man Teil der üpigen Vegation. Der Blick schweift aufs Meer und die Natur, man ist in einer anderen Welt und kann vollständig abschalten und relaxen. Ein besonderes Erlebnis ist die Übernachtung auf dem Balkon mit Blick auf die Sterne.
Das Haus war sauber und ist zweckmässig mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet.
John ist ein sehr freundlicher und hilfbereiter Gastgeber, der immer mit Rat und Tat zur Verfügung stand.
John is very friendly and accommodating and met us when we arrived to show us around. He even brought us bananas from the farm. This cottage is very conveniently located to lots of great hikes and quaint towns like Makawao and Paia. The space was very clean and is just as pictured. There were two beds available and we found the one in the screened porch to be the more comfortable of the two — which was ideal since we especially enjoyed waking up to the morning breeze and the sound of birds chirping.
John's place was awesome! I love the feel of being a local. That is exactly how his place made us feel. It was great to be able to come and go as we needed.
The bed was super comfortable. Having a little sitting area with a tv was an added bonus. We enjoyed the bathroom with all the linens. Everything was clean and in order. We especially loved the warm welcome with chocolates. I don't know if he does that every time, but it sure was fantastic :)
We had an enjoyable and relaxing experience at the ocean & mountain view room at John's guesthouse. We felt welcomed from the get-go and appreciated the special touches such as the Ayurvedic body soap & organic shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom. The outdoor deck was perfect for soaking in the day and star gazing at night. I would recommend this option to anyone who is interested in feeling more of the aloha native vibe, versus the tourist vibe. Mahalo John!
