                                                                We stayed for a week and wanted to stay forever. Quiet and private with easy access to three beaches. Sunsets fantastic. Snorkeling was great and easy walking to beaches. House was very comfortable with everything we needed. We stopped going out to dinner to enjoy the view each night from the deck !

                                                                What you see is what you get.

                                                                Excellent Accomodations!

                                                                The view from this home is so stunning, we did not want to leave the place. Snorkeling in the bay nearby was great, and then just shower outside and pop into the hot tub when you get back.

                                                                Although small, it's a jewel of a property! Situated on the rocky edge of the Makena Landing, it offers beautiful views and plenty of entertainment watching the large snorkel cats and boats unload the hoards of tourists that pay to sail to this bay to snorkel when it's right outside you lanai!

                                                                Plenty of restaurants and a very open and airy Shops at Wailea make this a perfect vacation spot for romance and relaxation!

                                                                One caution is that the stairs leading up to the house are very narrow and steep! I would not recommend this for anyone with knee or back problems. Other than that, I love this little beach bungalow! I'm a 10 year returning guest and wouldn't stay anywhere else!

                                                                Amazing Get Away

                                                                The most amazing place for a couple. Been to Maui many times and have already booked my trip back. All I can say is WOW

                                                                Ahh...just perfect

                                                                Really great place. Everything you need and more. Despite two homes within a coconut throw, we felt complete privacy. Beautiful views...right on the bay. Even saw a "green flash" from the front deck. Quick easy walk to the beach. We had planned to go on some tours of the island but instead, just stayed where we were. Pure relaxation! If we had researched Maui for a month...which we luckily did not, we would not have found a better spot. We have lived in the Caribbean, and have done a lot of diving and snorkeling, but the best snorkeling we've ever done is right in front of the house! The best part is hearing the whales singing while underwater. Gotta' check that off your bucket list!
