The BlueRock BeachHouse with private pool and gardens, was designed for the modern professional family. The home was a model of green construction, utilizing,traditional Hawaiian materials in innovative new ways. The striking gourmet bamboo kitchen was fabricated from recycled material. The solid 2 1/2 lava countertops make reference to the iconic Volcanoes. The coral stone used in the central island and bath rooms is filled with the islands fossils and shells. The stunning hand scraped ipe, or iron wood floors are also reclamed wood. etc. These indigenous materials are juxtaposed with the latest plumbing and applliances to produce a minimal, high tech, yet warm framework to observe the beautiful gardens and nature in the backyard surrounding the pool, with some of the oldest trees, and luscious flowers remaining in south Maui.
Eight people can stay in full size beds with luxury hotel mattresses.
For an additional fee you may add up to 4 more guests with an extra person fee. They can sleep in the italian pull out sofa sleeper located in the master suite or one of the two queen air mattresses that are often placed in the large master closet.
Also there is a folding single nova foam sleeper that is divine, but not recommended for broad shoulders .

Nicole purchased this House in 2004
Why Nicole chose Kihei
This property is so popular because of it's unique location.It is the only vacation rental property available in the sacred, centrally located local neighborhood, where you can walk best places, that are not overpriced for the tourists in Wailea. Nonetheless, I have remodelled the property with the same materials, and furnishings I use at the exclusive wailea Beach Villas, that command more than 4 times the cost. I live in a wonderful, professional and local neighborhood where we all have lived for over 10 years.
What makes this House unique
Driving up to your own house with parking, pool, and freedom...is so much more relaxed then a resort, or gated property where must constantly show security your clearance, to go back an forth from the same beaches as this house. Also, having the same luxuries as home, like a gourmet kitchen, laundry, in addition to your own pool and BBQ, WIFI, HBO/showtime/IPad docks etcs, make this house a dream without the huge bill at the end of vacation that you dread!

nice relaxation home
We all enjoyed our stay at this home. It's walking distance to the restaurants, grocery, beach, and park. Neighborhood is very quiet. The beds are very comfortable, no complains from anyone. The owner provides all necessities in the house for us to use exp. dish detergent, dishwasher detergent, toilet papers, paper towels, laudry detergent, cleaners and plenty of beach towels along with beach chairs and boogie boards. We all enoying spending time in a nice clean pool everyday. She has someone out to clean the pool everyday. We would defintely come back and stay there again next time.
Thank you Loann!
I look forward to meeting you on you return.
Great on inside shoddy on outside
John I am sorry that my team did not take care of the landscaping, power washing and painting , as they were paid to do.
My housekeeper Grace , refused to turn on my ext security camera's I use to supervise the maintenance.
Unfortunately, while I was getting surgery she was sending me false documentation that the house was in good condition.
I sincerely apology for her shocking actions.
I hope you will return when the yard is returned to its glory.
Older we’ll kept home that has all you need!
Our over all experience was good here with our family of nine ! The outside of the place took us aback but the inside and yard and pool was great! Nicole was very helpful in proving us with extras that we requested such as high chairs and baby beds! Her place provided beach chairs and toys and floaties for the kids and adults and having a private pool was such a hit with the family, we spent most afternoons playing in it with “Swanee”! Beds were comfortable and towels and bedding very nice, the house is well equipped! Kitchen sink is very high, which was a problem for us shorter folk but the taller ones took that duty over. Not Nicole’s fault but when we first came into her home the house looked clean , but within the hour of being there our socks were dirty and one of the bathrooms had a full garbage container and our little 4 year old had climbed up on the couch and it had shards of glass on it and she cut her foot and knee on it. But after cleaning those things up we really enjoyed the space and property !
Rachel thank you for being so helpful, while I restaffed. Because the cost of living is so high on Maui, skilled labor is hard to find and hold on to. I had to pay primadona Grace pay 500 for 3-4 hours to replace the two previous disasters I had. When I trained Grace she was 300, I mention this because guests, seem to think I make a lot on the cleaning fees, when they actually amount to close to 1000.00 a week between , the pool , housekeeper, landscaper & upholstery steam cleaning.
However, I apologize for the delay in responding. I have been in California getting spinal surgery. But I wanted to thank you for assisting me, and I just the name on the review together with your face. That was a very hard day for me and you and your family were extremely kind. I want you to know that I was only silent because I was indeed mortified.
Now that I am finally better, I can trueley supervise my team, and maintenance schedule.
Thank you! I hope you your family return when the restoration is done and I can give you a special discount.
Relaxing & Amazing
This property was very suited to our family. It has 4 bedrooms which includes a HUGE master bedroom, bathroom and closet where we were able to set up our granddaughter's bed with ample room. It fit our family of 8 adults *4 couples, one child wonderfully! Nicole was super friendly and helpful, and went out of her way to add extra touches for our stay. The pool was refreshing and we loved the natural look and feel of the backyard. The location was great as it was walking distance to a beach, shops and restaurants. The wifi was an issue as it consistently cut in and out, Nicole did everything possible to help us with this as well, and it did not prove to be a big problem and we worked around it. The house needs some paint and a few touch ups, but overall was quaint, natural, and a well laid out home which had everything we needed for a great stay. We loved it and would recommend Blue Rock Beach House and would definitely return there.
Thank you Nicole!
Beautiful, comfortable, close to everything!
Nicole’s house was perfect for our travels. We were a party of 8, 3 of those kids. Everyone had fun. The kitchen is perfect for making meals if you’re into that on vacation. The rooms were well lit, had plenty of room, and the bathrooms were conveniently placed. Everything was clean. The backyard and pool were beautiful. The location is within walking distance of Kihei restaurants, a grocery store, the beach, a beautiful beachfront Park, Starbucks, etc.
Some things to be aware of, although entirely doable for the stay:
The water is solar heated so expect very hot showers during the day and cooler ones at night.
The couch is very low. Elderly may have trouble getting up and may need a hand.
The pool is not heated. Many of us thought that was just fine and swam anyway, but we had two kids that didn’t want to swim in the pool. Their loss. 😉
Nicole was very accommodating and helpful. Her office attaches to the main house but is completely private. If we come back to Maui, we will be using this property if it is available.
You couldn't ask for nicer, or more organized, and iteresting guests to rent your property!
Her husband told me they have there own ranchon HomeAway as well, so they were sympathetic extremely pleasant , when I needed to reboot Spectrum quite often during the line upgrade that occurred last week.
Luckily during the winter Olympics and flash floods we are unchareacertistically feeling in South Maui, there have been no problems with the internet, and the speed has increased.
I look forward to the return of M. family!

This was a good location and the caretaker was attentive. Some issues remain unaddressed.
The Blue Rock Beachhouse is in a good location. It is in a residential neighborhood away from the resorts. We walked and rode bikes to shops and dining and beaches. Our group had 6 adults, two children and an infant, so we were pleased with the four bedrooms and 3 baths. Only the master bedroom was big enough for the pack-n-play, however. There were two pack-n-plays available but there was not a high chair, which was in the description and pictures of the house. There were tons of towels for the beach, and the beach chairs and umbrella were all in great condition.
The pool was a hit with the kids in our party and was even cleaned during our stay. Upon our arrival, however, there were some local children swimming in it. A bit of an odd way to start vacation but it was fine.
I had read reviews of extremely hot water in the showers. This remains an issue. It was unsafe, especially trying to bathe an infant. When the water wasn't scalding hot, it became cold very quickly.
Anytime we had issues other than the water, the caretaker was responsive and pleasant.
The cable and internet were off when we arrived and it was fixed a day or two later. The internet connection remained an ongoing issue. If we were able to connect to it, it was very slow.
I am sorry you experienced this problems.
I came back to Maui to solve the problems and restore my A-team, and dismiss the employees that did not do their jobs in good faith. I am sorry that both Jamal and Nicole Ryan took advantage of me, and charge me for extensive work, that was not done, or done improperly. After several surgeries , I am back on Maui updating , the BlueRock Beach House, and replacing the plumbing fixtures many guest found difficult to use.
Kristin, I am sorry I did get to meet you but your detailed review let me know that my employees were intentionally misrepresenting the work done and billed to me. I want future guests to know I have corrected these problems.
