I bought this property because the first time I came to Maui I was in Ka'napali it rained the whole time, went down to Kihei and it was beautiful and sunny , I heard that it was like that everyday and it is. sometimes you only have a week for your vacation and weather is important.
Owner purchased this House in 2001
Why Owner chose Kihei
I choose this property because of the location, its close to everything, the backyard is beautiful with banana trees mango tree and coconut palms, the lani has beautiful white hanging flowers all around it. the house is cozy and comfortable the longer I'm there the longer I wont to stay.
What makes this House unique
I love to wake up in the morning to the sound of the birds and the breeze in the palm trees. then going to Starbucks and getting coffee then going to the beach drinking my coffee, watching the whales then taking a walk on the beach then swimming for my workout. I LOVE IT.

Aloha House Kihei
Had a wonderful time staying at the Aloha House in Kihei - it felt like home. It was comfortable and we had everything we needed.
Exceeded my expectations
Our stay at this home was amazing. We were initially looking for a 2 bedroom (we have 4 children) but without any luck we settled for this one. And I’m glad we did! Plenty of space. Between the futon upstairs, queen bed and a pack and play crib we all slept in the giant bedroom upstairs. Not to mention there are 2 really nice futons on the main level. The property is very private with a fully enclosed medium sized backyard and fully enclosed front yard/ parking area. There were beach toys, boogie boards, a couple snorkel sets, beach umbrella, 2 coolers and plenty of beach towels for our trips to the beach. There was an electric George Foreman grill which was ok and a small charcoal grill and between the 2 we bbq’d some amazing meals. The location of the property was very convenient. We walked to Kalama Park so the kids could play in the park. The beach was a little far for a walk but numerous beaches less than a 5 minute drive away. Marilyn the owner was very accommodating and quick with responses. She does not live on site but has a caretaker living in the small home attached to the rental. That being said, you wouldn’t even know there was another home attached to the rental. Very separate and private. We had no worries about our noisy kids bothering neighbors or vise versa. So I recommend this home for the large family, small family or even just the couple. Clean, private, affordable, quiet and convenient. Thanks Marilyn. We’ll be back to stay again, I won’t bother looking for a 2 bedroom.
I am so grateful for the wonderful review and so happy that you enjoyed your vacation , thank you it means so much to me that my house was accommodating and you enjoyed being there , thank you for all your help you have been the best renters ever you get five stars!!
Very comfortable all amenities more than what we expected , very accommodating. Close to beaches and shopping. Hated to leave definitely going back
Tropical and Comfortable
We stayed at Marilyn's place for 10 nights in January. We found the place to be very comfortable and spacious! It has everything you need in the kitchen, movie channels galore, lots of beach equipment and the location is unbeatable. The only one downfall was the lack of natural light in the condo. Being that it's so tropical and the beautiful plants and trees everywhere, it shades the light from coming in. Thanks for a great stay!
Aloha thank you so much for the wonderful review ! I’m so pleased you had such a good time and enjoyed my Home, I have so many plants and hanging flowers it gets a little overgrown which makes it shady , I hate cutting the flowers but I thank you for your feed back I need to get them trimmed to let more light in .
Marilyn was always very quick to respond each time I had a question or issue.
Great spot in Kihei, with a handful of watch-outs.
It was our very first time in Maui for my new husband and I and the Beach House was the first stay we booked, for 6 nights. Marilyn was easy to communicate with and she made herself very available once we checked in. We would have given our stay 4 stars if not for the after service we experienced when we returned to Toronto.
PROS: 2-level unit, lots of space! Very well stocked, not brand new but went with the beach theme. Movie channels galore. Beach chairs, boogie board, sun umbrella came in handy.
CONS: be prepared for lots of signs with instructions - we counted 16+. Shower wasn't draining well (Marilyn gave us the heads-up but wasn't able to get it fixed during our stay, so we showered in ankle-deep water). AC was limited - we were asked to not use the upright unit in the 2nd flr bdrm for more than 3 hrs at a time (because it's expensive, you'll see the sign). Ceiling fans helped but we were uncomfortable at times.
When we checked-out we were sad to leave - despite some of its quirks we had really enjoyed our stay there and left Marilyn a huge thank you message in the guestbook. What happened next put a damper on our whole experience:
Before leaving, we put in a reg load of towels (max 4 large, 2-3 small) in the washing machine outside. We could have left the pile for the cleaners (since we were paying the cleaning fee) and in hindsight we should have, but, we're Canadian, we were feeling helpful! We did hear the washer banging around but couldn't get it to stop after checking the load; Marilyn said that it must have been an unbalanced. 3 wks later, I asked Marilyn about the damage deposit and when we should expect it, since we hadn't heard anything otherwise. Her response: "Repair to dryer (sic) was $x, because of overloading it that caused the drum to come off track, refund balance $x, was fixed by Appliance Dr. in Kihei". Additional messages were exchanged, with us asking her to reconsider and her final response to us was out of sorts, accusing us of coming into her home and overloading the washer (not dryer) even though there was a sign that said not to, and that the repairman said it must have been "extremely overloaded for it to break the way it did". If we were to be held responsible for any damage, we should have been alerted within 24-48 hours of discovery proving fault. At the end, appropriate protocol was not followed and the bottom line was more important to the owner.
Owner response here is 100% expected, refund is not.
I am so happy you enjoyed your vacation at my house , it was a pleasure having you there, I know there was not malicious intent in damaging my washing machine mistakes happen sometimes , I always try to make the house as accommodating as I possibly can, I sincerely hope you come back and enjoy my beach house again in the future
Best wishes and congratulations
