About The Owner

I'm Kili and in addition to being a wife and involved mother of three, I have been the director of Maui's Hawaiian language immersion preschool, Punana Leo o Maui, since 1993. I also operate our bed and breakfast cottage. My husband Michael is a championship windsurfer and has owned his own painting and contracting company here since 1988. He has also studied chant and hula. Our three children- Kiani, Kalia and Kuakea- were born and raised in the islands. All were schooled in the Hawaiian language immersion program and are fluent Hawaiian language speakers. Kiani is a budding Hawaiian language educator and an accomplished hula dancer. Kalia is a star volleyball player and Kuakea is the artist of our family. Even our dog has a Hawaiian name: I`i.

The Owner purchased this house in 1985

Beautiful quiet setting, everything needed for a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this welcoming home and Kili's warm Aloha. Experience the island as locals live. We watched sunsets from the spacious lanai, made some meals together and dined at nearby restaurants. Kili's house is fully equipped for couples or a family. Lots of extra towels, laundry if you need it, great breakfast foods stocked in the refrigerator plus cereals, coffee and teas. Heaven on Maui!

Wonderful escape from the Idaho cold

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely amazing. We were so ready to escape the snow and cold temperatures that we had been experiencing in Idaho. Kili was wonderful to work with from the beginning. She always returned my emails and was easy to communicate with. We were delayed because of weather, everything had became a frustration from airlines to rental cars, but not the house, it was ready and so easy to find. She had a wonderful welcome note for my family, fruit basket, flowers and a kitchen full of breakfast food. I loved that the surroundings made me feel like I was on Maui and not a resort. The deck was awesome, we were out every morning watching the sun rise. Upcountry Maui was so beautiful. My family was very comfortable here. My husband got so much use out of the outside grill, the rain storm didn't even stop him. Thank you Kili for sharing your home with us, it was an amazing vacation. We can't thank you enough.

Peaceful

We enjoyed staying at the deck. It was very relaxing. I really appreciated getting a greeting by hand written note and proving up plenty of breakfast to eat. Will come back again

The property was just as described, the generosity of our host Kili, exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the layout of the house and the deck outside was our favorite hangout spot. All the comforts of home were provided and then some. We will be back, if we are lucky enough to secure a future date. Mahalo nui loa.
