About Joy Gerry

Don and Joy moved to Maui in 1981. We bought a one acre parcel in 1985 and built this house in 1986. We subdivided the property into 4 different parcels, so there are additional houses on the entire one acre. Some are rented out as vacation rentals. We live in one of the houses and are available to assist you to make your vacation the perfect vacation.

We have 3 children who were raised on Maui. Our oldest son Aaron lives in Washington State with his wife Juliet, son Kingston and daughter Kylee. Our second son Justin lives in Slovenia and is a pastor of Calvary Chapel Celje, Slovenia with his wife Erin. Our youngest daughter Rebecca lives in one of our cottages with her husband Kit and daughter Ivy.

Joy Gerry purchased this house in 1986

Why Joy Gerry chose Kihei

After years of long term renters we remodeled this house and wanted to allow visitors and Hawaii residents a home away from home to vacation, house their family and relatives who come to visit and sometimes just to get away.

What makes this house unique

This property is very unique. It is tucked back from the street with 7 acres of undeveloped land next door. It is only 1000 ft. from the ocean so you can sometimes hear the ocean. You do have to go back out to the street and walk around the corner to actually get to the beach. The nearest beach is not crowded and is awesome for morning walks and sunsets. There is a reef and tidepools during low tide to explore and look for small ocean creatures. There is a large grassy area above the sand with numerous palm trees which makes an amazing backdrop for photos. We are 1 mile from the Kamaole Beaches where there are lifeguards.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed the stay at your beautiful home. I was very beautiful and comfortable and had that authentic Hawaiian feel. We appreciate your hospitality and will definitely recommend your place to everyone! Again, thank you for everything.

Absolutely perfect in everyway!! Our first time to Maui and we had the most amazing time! It was so nice to wake up and come home to this warm, cozy, comfortable home! Location is perfect to all Maui! Joy and Don were a pleasure to work with, very accommodating and helpful which made for one of the most memorable trips we have ever taken! We love Maui and hope to return again and again to the Island and stay at this lovely cottage! Mahalo and God Bless You! Dianne, Adrian and Daniel

beautiful private garden house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this garden house in Kihei. The house is really clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to cook meals. The patio was really nice to relax and eat, and we enjoyed watching the lunar eclipse one night through the trees blowing with the tradewinds. Each morning we awakened to birds chirping, and spent the days exploring, snorkeling, and surfing at the many beaches just 5 min. away. The kids had a great time running around in the yard and finding geckos. We walked around the corner a few times to watch the sunset on the sand or large grassy lawn area.

It is centrally located, but this is on a large private garden property, so you don't feel like you are in the middle of town. Also, this is great if you want to stay away from being next to hundreds of people in a condo building.

Don and Joy were so helpful as needed, and we will definitely stay here again when visiting Maui.

A Month in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a find! My sister and I returned home last week(kicking and screaming) after spending a month in the two bedroom cottage. We loved the perfect Maui location. There were so many amazing beaches nearby, and the proximity to everything on the island was perfect. We loved the homey, unpretentious feel to the cottage, and the fact that it was off the road and felt very private. It was so much better than any hotel would have been. Don and Joy were so helpful and friendly. I can't recommend the cottage highly enough.

Satisfied Customer! Vacation Rental Maui Hawaii.

  • 5 of 5

Once again we enjoyed our time at "Hale Mohalu" the Affordable Maui Vacation Rental owned by Don & Joy Gerry. We always enjoy the peaceful setting and spotless cottages. As our family grows we have no trouble fitting into the 3 bedroom home that they offer. I would highly recommend this Place and have referred many friends there. See you next year.

The Only Place I Stay On Maui

  • 5 of 5

This trip was my second stay in this cottage (5 weeks total) and it is the only place I stay when I visit Maui. The cottage has everything you need - including a great lanai (porch) to relax on, full kitchen for cooking meals, washer and dryer, it is comfortable and clean, close to everywhere you'll want to be and the owners are fantastic!
