We did not meet the host because Steve was out of town that weekend. He left a very detailed instruction and we had no problem to settle in. As described, the place was clean and is walking distance to the beach. Moreover, Steve was meticulous in printing out suggestions and recommendations for us as well as the most recent Maui revealed book. Those information was very helpful.
One thing we noticed is that the guest room has window open to the parking lot, which could be quite noisy. During our stay, unfortunately, one (or multiple) motorists decided to ride in and out of the parking lot around 5 am in the morning on Saturday and Sunday morning. We don't know whether we were just particularly unlucky this time.
We loved staying at Steve's place. The place was very clean, very comfortable, and it had all the things needed for fun at the beach (towels, boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs). The room for his guests has the most comfortable king size bed, a t.v. and a fan to keep the room cool. The privacy was fantastic as Steve has his own space, but when we got to meet him he made us feel at home and he was more than happy to share his knowledge about local areas and the island. We truly enjoyed talking to him. The fridge has a sharing shelf which comes in very handy (thank you, Steve, for the ice cream and coffee). The ocean is a three minute walk from Steve's place. You can snorkel, surf, and boogie board at this beach, and others within walking distance, all with a lifeguard there to watch over you. You will not be disappointed if you stay at Steve's place.
Our host, Steve, was very welcoming. The condo is right by the beach in Kihei and the accommodations couldn't have been lovelier. The condo is well maintained and quiet. Steve made us feel welcome to use the condo to the fullest. I would certainly book Steve"s place again. And, Kihei is an excellent place to center any trips in Maui on the East coast and has lovely beaches.
Steve's place is fantastic and provides everything you need for your stay. It is clean, comfortable, you have your own bathroom and I found it awesome that you can use anything - from kitchen appliances, washing machine to boogie boards and beach chairs. For me it was the perfect place to stay in Kihei. You can actually walk to a great beach for boogie boarding and to see the sunset. Also, Kihei is a perfect location for exploring Maui.
Steve was a fantastic host and I absolutely enjoyed staying with him. He was always available for questions, helped with recommendations, he even took me to a friend's birthday party at the beach, he's a decent beach tennis player ;-) and overall a very nice, easy-going guy. Mahalo Steve for sharing your home!
We just left 8 wonderful days in Maui. And it wouldn't have been as great if we didn't stay with our new friend Steve.
From the moment we arrived, Steve made us feel like we were staying with an old friend. His condo is perfectly located in South Kihei. It had everything we needed to make Maui home for the week including beach chairs, towels, a fully stocked kitchen and an awesome TV to watch some games.
The condo was walking distance to beaches, restaurants, and groceries. Steve provided great information about all of the things we could do on the island and even invited us to a few gatherings at sunset he and his friends were having.
The best thing of all is that when we calculated how much money we saved with his place over the Sheraton we stayed at last year, our entire vacation was basically free!
If you are looking for a great place to stay for a great price with a great host... Look no further!
Steve was the perfect host, and his flat is the perfect location to spend time in Maui.
Not only was the flat spotlessly clean, Steve was incredibly welcoming inviting us to a cinema night on our arrival. He gave us brilliant advice on the best places to rent a car, as well as the best beaches and beauty spots to check out. Best airbnb experience ever.
Steve went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. Even though it is a room in his condo, you have your own bathroom.
He was rarely home so it was almost like a private condo. He did have beach chairs and towels and an umbrella.
One important thing to know is that the condominium driveway is across from the beach, but his condo is about 4 blocks from the beach.
Steve was an amazing host and his home is as lovely and welcoming as he portrays it to be. The condo was spotless. The location is perfect and the fact that it's right across the street from the best place to watch the Maui sunset certainly doesn't hurt. Steve is happy to help with suggestions for dinner and activities, etc and he generously provides beach chairs, towels and boogie boards. Unfortunately I broke my ankle at Big Beach the 2nd day of our 4 day stay (beware of the huge waves there!!) but Steve was so helpful and supportive. I felt extremely comfortable in his home and that meant the world to us. If you're planning a trip to Maui and would be satisfied with a bedroom, private bathroom and shared kitchen and living room, we highly recommend staying with Steve.
Great space! Steve is a wonderful host generously sharing his space. Much aloha here!! I love the décor well placed furniture. Every morning I had coffee on the deck with a view of lovely greenery & a peak at the crater. Very clean space and well organized ~ parking was close. Steve is the perfect host with the most!!! He knows lots of island tips/information. I am looking forward to returning!!
Great flowing space with no "clutter" ~ I enjoyed the Maui information book left in the room + great cable TV!
I booked this room with Steve because it is hard to find a place to live here (I'm here for the winter) unless you are already on the island. I did end up finding a place and didn't stay with Steve because I work from home and really just needed to get my desk set up and get to work. But I will say Steve's place was a great backup and it was worth the expense just to have a place in case I needed it. His location in Kihei is excellent. I ended up in north Kihei which is not close to all the stores, restaurants, nicer beaches and am already looking to relocate to south Kihei. If you're looking to move to Maui I think Steve's would be a great place to stay and having air conditioning is a MUST to acclimate, at least for me. Where I am now they rarely use it and I am uncomfortable a lot. Steve and I texted during the week in case it didn't work out for me and he was great about it. Next time for sure, Steve!
This is a great place! Beach access is awesome. Anything you need is with in walking distance. So we don't even bother renting a car when we stay with Steve. Not to mention one of the most caring and generous persons Ive met on Maui. Steve is a neat freak so his place is super clean. I recommend this as a home base to anyone visiting Maui. Affordable, clean, Maui. Can't beat it. Plus Steve has a real nack at making you feel like you at home. Keep Maui kick back! Stay with Steve.
Steve is a great guy who offers an amazing place to stay in Maui at an affordable price.
He is very easy going and has a great sense of humor. We are also airbnb hosts in
Maui and we always recommend Steve's place if we can't accommodate specific date
choices. You honestly will not find a better location or a nicer guy.
What a great place to stay. I loved being able to walk to the beach and enjoyed watching TV from the huge bed. It was clean, comfortable and worth every penny. I hope all of my friends have an opportunity to visit Maui from His Kihei gem. I have known Steve for over 30 years. One year we traveled to Greece for a vacation. He is a most agreeable and an easy and fun travel companion! And a great host in his home on Maui
