OUR MAUI BEACH HOUSE... (Please read our Guest Comments to see how great this place is!)

LOCATION: Right on a sandy Kihei beach, four miles north of Wailea. Walk just a few steps from the living room and deck to the lawn and sandy beach. Enjoy long walks on our sandy beach. Spectacular ocean views and sunsets from the living room, deck, and master bedroom - views of Lanai, Kahoolawe, Molokini, and West Maui. Kayak in front of the house to see the turtles!

DESCRIPTION: A large (1,250 square feet!!) two bedroom, three bath custom redwood townhouse which we built in 1977 as a family retreat --with a fully-equipped kitchen and laundry. This is a comfortable beach house and we have done remodeling, refurnishing and updating recently. The master bedroom has a king bed, the second bedroom has twin beds and a queen bed. The duplex is on three separate levels, each with its own private bathroom. The adjoining townhouse is the only other unit on the property, and is also available for rent for larger groups.

BEACH: A sandy beach with calm, reef protected waters. The living room and master bedroom have spectacular views of the beach, ocean, whales, West Maui, and sunsets.

GOLF: Elleair Maui Golf Club is three blocks away, Wailea’s famous golf courses are four miles away, and all of Maui’s other courses are within easy driving distance.

TENNIS: Public courts are a few blocks away in either direction, more are nearby.

SNORKELING, SURFING, PADDLE SURFING and WINDSURFING: Beyond the reef right in front of the house, and at any of several nearby beaches. Maui Dive Shop is one block. Rig up on the front lawn and sail right from the beach.

                                Our family spent 7 beautiful days in paradise and can't wait to come back! We could not be happier with our decision to stay in this home. Plenty of room for a family of 5, fantastic beach access, great lawn and trees for the kids to play in, amazing sunsets, and so many whale, dolphin and turtle sightings that our kids didn't bother to look up after the first 3 days. I had a large turtle surface about 8 feet from me in the water. Our kids are 7, 5 and 3- this beach is perfect for little kids. Tons of places within walking distance. I would have worried if I had any children under the age of 2 1/2, the stairs down from the kitchen would have been a big concern with early walkers. However, they did have baby gates there. We look forward to returning soon!

                                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car.

                                We stayed 12 days at a premium price. Weather not the best for most of the stay. About half the time we had severe rain. This, of course, is the luck of the draw...not the owner's fault. What was not expected were leaks from 3 different places in the roof. And a range whose door would not close. We called for help and management came and threw down a few towels and told us "to just lean on the range door and it will work." But we didn't, apparently, have the right technique. We got to revisit the joys of washing the dishes by hand. There were a few other minor things you would not expect at this price. We awoke on our last day to cleaning people on the lanai looking in (good thing I had my pants on!). We told them we had confirmed reservations for 1 more day (had that info in hand). They called management who showed up and rudely (quite a snotty manner) tried to get us out (the owner was coming in that day). We showed our paperwork and suggested she contact the owner to straighten things out. We stayed that last night and gladly put this rental behind us the next day. By the way, both the owner and management admitted these were known problems from the past. Wished they had alerted us! I'd suggest you give this one a pass.

                                Owner response: What is the best way to respond to inaccurate comments? I really don't know -- we've never had anything but 4 or 5 star guest reviews --- 50 or more high ratings follow this message. So I'll just let them speak for themselves. This guest was instructed on how to use the dishwasher as soon as he asked -- over the phone at first, and in person. He didn't let us know until the end of his trip that he still had not been able to figure out how to operate the dishwasher. This is a new dishwasher and the door needs to be closed firmly. The range has never been a problem. He did experience a Kona rain storm which blows the rain in horizontally from the ocean, presenting new problems for many homes, but the leaking was very minor. Our manager and cleaners are very courteous and professional.

                                Ditto to the last entry. I would add that the bed was so comfortable and can't emphasize enough the spectacular views. Loved how close the beach was and how it wasn't a busy beach....nice and laid back. Great places to eat within a couple miles and enjoyed the 3:00 happy hours. Looking for a large screen to watch the big game, check out 3's Bar and Grill.

                                My husband and I and two friends just returned from spending 10 glorious days in this welcoming home. The description was very accurate and if I could rate it higher I would. We found it hard to leave the house to enjoy the island as we didn't want to leave the deck. The Humpback Whales were breaching and we had the best view in town. We could walk to the store for a daily paper, or snow ice, yet the home still seemed secluded. There are so many places for great food and the kitchen was perfect if we wanted to cook at home. Everything was clean and well maintained. The owner has been wonderful to work with. I would recommend the property to anyone. If you go to Rita's to eat, tell Steve hi, they have great food, and views and service awesome. Also the Snow Ice store in the Azeka Shopping Center, it is so good. Must try. Also for dinner, Antonio's which is right next door. Enjoy and Mahalo! Can't wait to return.

                                Our plans changed after we booked our accommodations with Doug. He courteously and promptly sent our refund check with in a couple of days. He was extremely helpful and professional while we were booking and answered all of our questions. I wouldn't hesitate to book with this owner again. I'm just sad I can't add details about the lovely property but I can attest to his professionalism and consideration for those renting from him.

                                Wonderful house with the best views in Maui. Our family of 5 loved the location and setting of the house. We found that it met all of our expectations, as advertised, and would plan on staying again in the future. The master bedroom and deck views were the highlights of our stay at this property. It was also in close proximity to stores & restaurants in town.

                                We rented this property for our first Christmas away, and to have a change from the cold winter in Canada. We found the Townhouse details exactly as shown in the photos and website description. The beach/ocean was just yards away from our lawn and we watched the beautiful sunsets, daily, from our upper balcony or lanai. We appreciated having a beach which was fairly private and not overcrowded, as well as, being a short walk away to a few restaurants and shops - Times (Grocery Chain), Ono Ice-cream (a must!), breakfast cafe's, etc. Even though many other restaurants/shops were also a short drive away on the Kihei mainstrip, this property is tucked in a nice, quieter part of Kihei and away from the busier part. The Townhouse had a perfect layout with ample space - the main bedroom on the second level (with full bath & balcony), the living room/dining/kitchen/bath on the main level, and the second bedroom/bath on the lower level. The washer/dryer was also very helpful to have. All essentials and kitchen-ware were readily available. The reasons why we did not give this location an "excellent" rating was that improvements can definitely be made updating the stove and diswasher (which broke down and was inoperable during our whole stay). Also, general maintenance (problem with sink stopper in main suite) and glass doors/windows could do with a good cleaning. Also, availability of some board games and beach items (boards, umbrella) would definitely be welcomed. All in all, this was one of the best vacations we have had and it was a pleasure communicating with Doug. He answered all questions/emails efficiently and promptly. We would eagerly recomment this owner/property to other guests.

                                We, a family from germany, enjoyed our time at this place in Maui! Everything was fine, we enjoy the fantastic view and the sunsets from the terasse and balcony. It was perfect to have the beach just behind the garden, cause my children love to go swimming! Beside this, the convenient location of the golfclub near the house made my husband happy. All this made our vacation wonderful.

                                We loved staying in this home. Nothing better than falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and waking up to the absolutely terrific view. Just stroll off the the lanai, under the plumeria tree, across 30 feet of grass and you are on the beach. If you are lucky, you'll be with the turtles! SUP is terrific from this beach. The home has everything you need and although you'll want a car to explore the island, anything you might want or need in terms of stores and restaurants are all in walking or biking distance. There was no better spot to view the sunset than from this lovely home's lanai. Renting was easy, a gift basket welcomed us and we felt the true spirit of Aloha in this home.

                                What a brilliant time we had in Maui staying at the Beachfront townhouse. You could sprint from the patio and be in the sea quicker than Usain Bolt won the 100 meters at the 2012 Olympics in London (less then 10 seconds). Everything about the town house was as per described. The only negative comment I would make is being only two bederooms, if you were a party of 6, four people would need to share and I personnaly would have found one of the single beds quite clostrophobic. I would definately recommend this property to anyone thinking of visiting Maui. The sunset each night was amazing.
