This was our first visit to Maui and we were not sure where the most convenient location was to stay. We conducted extensive research on Airbnb to find lodging to suit our relaxed stay among the locals, well away from resorts preference. We decided on Max and Tracey's studio, and it was a perfect fit. Max made arrival effortless, and Buttercup (the family Labrador) greeted us when we arrived. Max and Tracey live on site, so you have the security of knowing if you experience a problem, they are there, but the place still feels very private. We enjoyed both sunsets and sunrises because of the high position of the property and the location of the studio on the property. That was a bonus. The location of the property is ideal if you plan to see all of Maui during your visit. We found it central to all of our excursions during our week-long stay. It is a bit of a drive from the west mountains, but worth the drive to return to a nest of solitude, absent of traffic, people congestion, and light pollution. It is much closer than driving to the resorts if you are returning from a drive along the Hana Highway. The studio was clean and very comfortable. They provide beach chairs, a cooler and plenty of towels, so all we needed for a day at the beach was sunscreen and rented gear for snorkeling or SUPing, which are abundant on the island. The kitchen is equipped with refrigerators and the basics which allowed us to prepare meals in and pack lunch for a day out. They also provide a washer and dryer, so you do not need to overpack for your trip just to have clean clothes every day. It is good to know we got it right our first trip to Maui, and would definitely stay with Max and Tracey again.
We really enjoyed our stay here! The location was great for us, having friends in the area, and also central access to the road to Hana and Kahului. The sunrise and ocean view is amazing here, the fresh oranges made the sweetest juice... super clean and exactly what we needed. Thanks Tracey and max! We'll keep this place in mind for the future, for sure.
We stayed at the house studio and we really liked it there. The studio is just right for 2 people and everything was clean and the bed was really comfy. We also enjoyed how leaving all windows open allowed us to sleep in a cooler place.
Tracey was very lovely- she helped us out with everything and left us some fresh fruits to enjoy.
Imagine waking up and seeing wonderful limitless ocean, than squeezing fresh oranges that were picked up in the garden. Seems unreal? At Max it is just every day! We fall in love with Maui and the place that we were staying just boosted our love. It is a bit out in the countryside but it is very close to lovely city of Paia and on the way to Hana so it is a perfect place to start your journey. It has all the necessary equipment and more. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone looking for peace and serenity.
This is a really great studio and a prime location to do the Hana Highway. Beautiful ocean views and wonderful hosts. We liked hanging out with Buttercup.
Max is one of a kind hosts. He made us feel like truly like being at home and accommodated our every special request. Max was even daily supplying us with his gorgeous garden's fruit ( bananas and valencia oranges) Max is unique ...wonderful, friendly and honest host who is full of life.
Studio is a lot bigger than how it looks like on the pictures....and it was located in paradise. We were very surprised (positively). It has everything you need! We were family which was cooking everyday, washing/drying almost daily and this kind of place ..with surrounding peace we had ...beats everything out there!
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful visit at the Windward Studio! It was a perfect, private getaway on the island of Maui. Right off the road to Hana, we were away from the crowds of the resorts and had a truly relaxing time. We woke up to a beautiful ocean view each morning and had our breakfast on the porch. There is a small kitchen with all the essentials, a grill on the deck, and a juicer to juice the beautiful fruit Max and Tracey left for us upon arrival! This place is spacious, clean, and beautiful. It's a little off the beaten path and away from the swimming / snorkeling beaches and resort nightlife - so just know that when booking. For us, this wasn't a big deal and we enjoyed eating out in Paia which was about a 15 min drive down the road. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful and authentic Maui experience!
Max's studio was the perfect getaway that my boyfriend and I had envisioned for our trip to Maui. Location: beautiful, quiet, perfect view of the ocean. Perfect place on the island as you can easily access all of Maui. Space: very clean with all the amenities to make yourself more than comfortable. Host: Wonderful!! We can not stress this enough! Max did everything and more to make our trip an unforgettable one from recommending the hidden gems of Maui, delivering fresh fruit on our doorstep in the morning to just being a great guy whom we were grateful to meet. We are definitely going back to Maui and when we do we will stay in Max's studio without question.
Hallo, wir (Viola, Felina, Maja und Steffen) sind eine Familie aus Berlin, (Deutschland) und wohnten vom (phone number hidden) im Haus von Traecy und Max. Die Unterkunft war Super, vorallem die Blicke in die Natur und auf den Ozean aus dem Ferienhaus und der Einliegerwohnung waren für uns sehr Besonders. Max und Traecy waren sehr freundlich, immer Hilfsbereit. In der Unterkunft haben wir alles vorgefunden, was wir benötigten.
Uns hat es auf Maui sehr gut gefallen, mal sehen wann wir Gelegenheit finden, wieder zurück zukommen.
Max and Tracey were great hosts. We loved their studio with its wonderful view. Hope to be back sometime.
Hi Beate, Thank you. We enjoyed your visit with us here in Haiku. Please come back soon. You are like a fresh cool breeze, Aloha, Max
