Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I just spent the past ten days at the most beautiful home in Kihei, Maui. We would go back tomorrow and live there the rest of our lives if we could :o) The location is excellent. The beaches, and there were several, are within a short walking distance. The sunset every night was unimaginable.

They call our one bedroom condo the Little Grass Hut, but it is so much more than that. The owners are wonderful hosts. They even provided a darling care package to get us started. The fridge had a few must need condiments all new. The cupboards were fully equipped with all the necessary cooking utensils, pots and pans and dishes. There were even a few must use spices readily available. To our delight there was a brand new gas grill just outside our building that we used frequently.

The pool is the perfect size and whisper quiet for those afternoons when the beach might not seem the place to be. However, we found the beaches amazing. We loved them all and they were not crowded at any part of the day. We were out there morning, noon and night, and each time was perfect.

The neighboring restraunts were also very nice. A deli sandwhich place was just down the parking lot a bit, and there was a wonderful breakfast cafe just a few blocks away. Both I would highly, highly reccommend.

Our accomodations were just lovely. We had a view of the ocean from our balcony where we were able to sit and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The condo was spotlessly clean and we felt very much at home. The owners checked on us shortly after we arrived and allowed us some extra time to stay on our last day which was a godsend since our flight was not until 10pm.

We will definitely be telling all of our friends about The Little Grass Hut and our wonderful time in Kihei. We can't wait to plan our next visit. Many thanks to Patricia and Jefferson on their amazing hospitality. If you are going to Maui be sure and check them out!

We have been traveling to Maui for many years and Kihei has become our favorite place. We’ve stayed in several different condos and this is one of our new favorites. Patricia and Jefferson are the nicest people and have made sure every detail is covered. The remodel is beautiful and the layout is spacious. The lanai gets some morning sun when it’s still cool and is in the shade the rest of the day which makes it nice to sit outside for meals. The kitchen and bathroom are well equipped and stocked with many items that saved us money, saran wrap, foil, baggies, spices, paper towels, generous starter items of toilet paper, soap, shampoo, conditioner, even a travel deodorant! It’s great to get you through the first few days and more generous than most. They even had a wonderful gift basket with chocolate macadamia clusters and fruit from their avocado and Meyer lemon tree. Plenty of beach equipment is provided including chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, games, etc. The king sized bed is comfortable with an ample supply of pillows. And the view from the lanai and out the living room window are both spectacular, especially at sunset! The location is great as you are walking distance to all the best beaches and can easily come and go from the condo to the beaches, as well as the fun restaurants and bars within walking distance. A car is convenient but not necessary. There are nearby grocery stores within walking distance, depending on how far you like to walk, or there is a bus that runs every hour to all of them. Highly recommend!

The property was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights here after touring Maui and Kauai for 2-12 weeks. We were ready for some down time. The beach right across the road with a crossing at the condo entrance was ideal. Everything we needed, good food and shopping, were within walking distance. The condo itself was tastefullly decorated. We especially loved the artwork. The pool and laundry are located right across the condos road. Patricia took special care to make sure we were welcomed with flowers, candy and a note.

The perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully remodeled, clean and comfortable apartment. It had everything we needed for our stay. Patricia made us feel welcome. It is so nice that she is local and just a phone call away. With the beach just across the street, we swam, snorkeled or watched the sun set almost every day. The property, pool and laundry are well maintained and all of the staff members are so friendly and helpful. Would stay here again or recommend to friends.

Amazing Condo Steps from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much again to Patricia and Jefferson,

for our wonderful stay in the newly remodeled Little Grass Shack! It is indeed an Ocean View Penthouse that is so comfortable and affordable in Kihei. This is our 4th stay here since 2012 and the updates are fantastic.

The new look is very fresh and modern, but the condo still feels very inviting and has that little grass shack feel....still comfortable and clean with all the comforts of home.Thank you for your welcoming touches of fresh flowers and gift basket upon arrival, it feels like we've come back to our home away from home.

We love the corner unit, with the tradewind breezes coming through, even in August we've never used the AC. The lanai is perfect from sunrise and a morning coffee and listening to the birds sing, to afternoon happy hour, very quiet and private and a little oasis from the sun when needed. It's just the right combination of ocean view and you can also see the morning mist upcountry on the slopes of Haleakala!

The beach at Kamaole II is a two minute walk away, fantastic for swimming, snorkelling and lots of sunshine and fun in the sand. Also lots of shopping, and great restaurants within easy walking distance. Although we rented a car and ventured Upcountry to Surfing Goat Dairy and the Lavender Farm and up past Lahaina and Kapalui to Honolua Bay and enjoyed different areas of Maui, our favourite beach is still Kamaole II.

As always, for me, one of the highlights of my vacation is seeing the turtles, either snorkelling, or swimming and this year we tried stand up paddle boarding and went to Turtle Town...amazing!!

The condo is fully stocked with everything you need to feel right at home, from the kitchen, bathroom, and super comfy king size bed and all the beach gear you might need.We love to cook and mostly eat in, and the updates to the kitchen are fantastic! Lots of cupboard space and countertops, and modern lighting and flooring all make it so user friendly and comfortable. We love Jefferson's artwork, it's so whimsical and quirky!! And it's a bonus that Patricia is just a phone call away for any questions about the local activities....we love the luau at the Grand Wailea, it's one of our favourites!

Maui is truly magical and we just can't say enough how much we enjoy our time in Kihei, we love the sun and beach and the aloha spirit and staying in the Ocean View Penthouse aka the Little Grass Shack makes it perfect!!

Mahalo Patricia and Jefferson and hope to see you next year.
