Recent East Maui reviews

  • A truly unique location on Maui

    "A bit on the reviewer(s): Family of 5 (kids 8,6,3). Family loves the beach. All very active in swimming and all things ocean. Parents are well traveled, frequent visitors to Maui, and consider a "tourist vacation" of hotels and pampering, out of the question. #1 - Ray Masters is THE MAN! What a wonderful host. Easy going, very helpful, there if you need him, and silent if you don't. Maui has a "Renaissance" man. His name is Ray Masters. #2 - If you like a perfect, private beach, from which you can swim, snorkel, SUP, windsurf, and pretend your a cast-away, you're going to love Friendly Beach. Our experience was that we would schedule hikes and other types of excursions for the kids during the day, and after completing the event always say, "Why did we leave our house?! Its much better just hanging at Ray's!" #3 Expectations matching. We're a family of 5. Ray's Suite is just that, a Suite. We happen to be a family that enjoys being around each other. (Mom and dad in bedroom, with 4 yr old on bedroom floor, or in bed with us. 8 and 6 yr old on futon in main room.) If you're like us and prioritize location, the ocean, and serenity over, bumping into tourists and hotel living, easy decision. For a couple, or for a family of 3, easy decision. For water sport enthusiasts, easy decision. Mahalo Nui Loa, Ray!"

  • Can't wait to come back

    "What an unbelievably beautiful setting with accommodations that make you say "wow." From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home - at least how I imagine princesses feel at home. Such luxury, but at the same time totally down to earth. I've stayed in other spots on Maui which have all been great, but this was by far the best experience I've had on the island. It is truly the tropical paradise experience. It's off the beaten path, which makes it so relaxing and peaceful (and an excellent hideaway from tourist Maui) but also close enough to Paia, beaches, and of course all the adventures on the road to Hana. Throw in the most gracious hosts, a wonderful outdoor kitchen, a great pool area, charming bungalows, and the perfect yoga spot (with yoga mats provided!) overlooking the ocean and, well, it goes without saying that I will be coming back again and again (and hopefully soon!). Thank you for the ultimate vacation of relaxation!"

  • Excellent Stay

    "We had an amazing time at the property. It was exactly as described. The property was light and airy, with plenty of space for our family of five. It was surprisingly cool for mid August, catching some shade and breeze. We particularly enjoyed the outside shower, security gate, parking, large outdoor space and BBQ area. It was quiet, despite being close to the main road. There was a amazing little deli/coffee store two minutes walk away, which we'd highly recommend - great for foodies. The property was clean and tidy. We had little contact with the owner/manager Michael, which was no problem, as we got in easily and got on with our stay in privacy. The property is in a great location for the North Shore activities, extremely close to Hookipa and a short drive from Paia. Great storage space for all your kit. It's possible to walk to a small beach from the property, but you would need to be a bit careful with the busy main Hana hwy with very young children. Mama's Fish house (pricey) is next door. We would definitely recommend it to our friends, which we will do."

Pukalani Travel Tips

Pukalani Beach Rentals: In the Center of Maui's Majestic Beauty

When you are a guest at any of the Maui vacation rentals, you are open to doing anything Maui has to offer. Getting some sun on the beach is one option, but the natural beauty just beckons the curious traveler to explore. Snorkel or dive into the sea or hike on a trail up a mountain. You can also explore caves underground, where lava used to flow at superhot temperatures to form the land that Pukalani condos were built on. The spacious accommodations and budget-friendly prices also benefit any family or group that visits this majestic island.

Take in Awe Inspiring Natural and Culinary Adventures

Pukalani beach rentals also allow for more personal privacy compared to the many hotels in the area. This fosters peace of mind to go along with the mental enjoyment of hiking, biking, or doing something daring like flying through the air on a zip line or parasailing. Aerial tours by plane or helicopter, however, will really take your breath away. Also being centrally located on Maui, Pukalani condos are not far from upcountry restaurants, where Mexican food and steaks are popular, or the many breakfast and romantic dinner establishments on the north side of Maui.

Calming Down at the Top of the World

If you never thought you can spend a relaxing afternoon on a volcano, here's your chance. Even play golf on one, specifically Mount Haleakala, at the Pukalani Country Club which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. You can see the sea from a much higher vantage point than at Pukalani beach rentals, and you'll feel even more at home too. The homely living spaces at the accommodations and beautiful vistas and friendly natives combine to make you feel like you have always lived on Maui.
