We enjoyed your cottage and had a great time. It was comfortable and home like. It was well supplied. Its nice country like location was great. We enjoyed talking with our hosts and finding out about the area. Even the chickens were a great addition.If we go back to Maui we hope to stay there again
This is one of our favorite places. The welcome was warm. Her husband Wade and his dad were working on the electric when we arrived - with unneeded apologies for any delay. Once in, everything was perfect. We used out stay for exploring a lot of Maui. If we return to Maui, this will be our pick of where to stay.
Myself and my best friend stayed eight says in Erika's lovely blue ohana. We got in late, but Erika had sent an email in advance detailing all the necessary directions, etc. We were greeted by a lovely fruit bowl and a welcome letter, and Wade popped by to say Hi and give us advice on sight-seeing. The accommodations were perfect: a lovely living room and kitchen, perfect for making meals in and hanging out, a wet room (shower and toilet) and a large bedroom area with a sink. There were lots of towels and everything else we could need. Though we were usually out and about exploring, when we did see Erika and Wade they were always charming and ever-helpful. The house isn't that far from the beach, maybe a 10-15 minute walk, and there are cool wetlands there too to check out. We had no idea about Maui before arriving; so, we weren't sure if this would be a convenient location or not - it totally was. The island is very small, if you have access to a vehicle this is a great, central location. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend, and if I come back to Maui (hopefully I will), I'll be staying in the little blue ohana again.
The Ohana was exactly as described and exactly as we expected. We didn't stay long, and so we didn't really get to appreciate the area around the guest house much, and we didn't spend much time with Erika and Wade. However, it was a great base for our Road to Hana, Haleakala, and Maalala Bay adventures.
We were greeted by the smell of a fresh pineapple and there were a lot of maps and brochures for us to rely on.
This would be a great location for a longer term stay where you could walk to the beach and eat meals on the lanai!
My dad and I had a great time at Erika's place! The cottage is set in a great location for exploring the whole island and it covers all your needs: full size kitchen, comfortable beds, nice patio to enjoy the sunset with a cup of coffee and a fast, reliable Internet connection! Erika and her husband are very kind and friendly hosts. Totally recommended! Grazie!
We had a lovely time in the ohana and wholeheartedly recommend it -- especially to families with young kids.
The space is open, airy and bright. Giant fridge, full kitchen, stocked with cooking supplies, coloring books for kids, novels for adults. Erika & Wade greeted us with coffee, cream, wine, croissants, and juice -- it was wonderful! They even gave us so much fresh fruit we never had to buy any!
We were right off the road, but the ohana and surrounding property are very quiet and peaceful. We particularly enjoyed hearing the waves crash at night, lulling us to sleep.
The yard is lovely & private. We sat out there every morning in our pajamas while our toddler ran around. There was even a tiny picnic table our daughter could sit at while we sat a cafe table. Great space for kids. They let us use their son's playspace in the other yard and let us feed the chickens.
The listing was completely accurate & their welcome letter covered every question I could have had. My only caveat is that there's no door between the living room & bedroom. The spaces are separated by a tiny hall however, so the bedroom feels far off. There were only 3 of us but the space could easily have fit 3-4 more people with the futon couch and the bunk bed.
We really loved the space and the hosts. Erika & Wade were kind, informative, accommodating and generous.
We enjoyed our stay. The location was great for us and our hosts were very hospitable. We especially enjoyed the fresh fruit fromtheir yard.
maison très sympa à vivre et bien placée sur l'île, car tout le reste de Maui est accessible facilement. Jardin charmant et dépaysant. Un spot de surf qui marche très bien le matin est situé à 5min en voiture. Hookipa est à 25min.
Wed et Erika sont adorables. ils sont disponibles pour toutes questions.
We enjoyed our stay at Erika & Wade's Ohana very much. The two of them are really open, friendly and easygoing. They gave us great tips on some local beaches & hikes and made sure we had everything we needed to have a great time. Major plus for us personally: both of them enjoy kitesurfing :-)
Their property is located about 10 minutes from town and 15 minutes from the airport, with a petrol station conveniently located along the way.
The Ohana itself is quite large and had everything we needed: shower-bath, kitchen, sitting area, comfy bed, wifi, a nice terrace, a view into the garden ... and some cool hikes nearby. We liked it very much.
We're really grateful for Erika & Wade taking us in on such short notice and would stay with them again anytime. Definite "recommend", especially for couples and young families.
