About Joy Gerry

Don and Joy moved to Maui in 1981 to raise their family. We bought an acre of land in Kihei with an original plantation house. Over the years we have subdivided the property, added a cottage and another house, but left the original house as authentic as we could.

Don is a licensed general contractor and Joy is a licensed travel agent.

Our children are married and have their own families and have moved elsewhere, so we open up our property to vacationers who want to enjoy the Maui we know and love, and especially enjoy the Plantation House. There are not alot of them left on the island.

We live on property and will be available to help you in your visit to Maui.

Our grandson, Kingston is 4 year old and Kylee is 1. Our granddaughter Ivy is 3 and lives next door to us.

Joy Gerry purchased this house in 1985

Why Joy Gerry chose South Maui

In 2000 we decided to convert the Plantation House into a vacation rental. We wanted vacationers to be able to experience the type of houses that people built and lived in when Maui was a quiet, undeveloped piece of paradise. We replaced all the windows in 2011 and put in new bamboo flooring and carpet. The kitchen got a new countertop and breakfast nook. There is a large lanai on the property so you can sit out in the evenings and enjoy the cool evenings, have a barbecue and talk story. We recently added a 2 bedroom cottage next door to this house, so it is perfect for large families traveling together. Along with the studio and the additional 2 bedroom on an adjacent property we have plenty of room for multi families.

What makes this house unique

Our property is not a condominium complex. It is not a typical mainland style residential property. It is a typical property from the 50's and 60's and 70's. There are lots of large tropical trees and tropical plants throughout the acre of land. There are fragrant plumeria trees, banana trees, and red hibiscus plants. There is 7 acres of an undeveloped grove of trees that line the whole length of the property which gives the property the feel of being away from it all when in reality we are 1 block from the beach and 2 blocks from the shops. We get lots of repeat visitors and families of local people as well as families of former visitors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Note Left For Owners-Don and Joy. What a Great Find! Thanks for 2 excellent nights. We will be sending lots of San Diegans your way, if not back ourselves. Mahalo, Drew and Kristen

Wonderful home and generous hosts

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything as advertised. Great amenities including chairs, snorkeling equipment, AC units in every room and SUPER comfortable beds and pillows. The porch was our favorite place to hang out, and the property itself was absolutely beautiful and relaxing. Joy was super in helping us to prepare and answered my many questions by email. Don truly exceeded our expectations. He was personable and spoke with us numerous times during our 10-day stay and gave us some great ideas on where to snorkel and eat. The house was right off of S. Kihei road and a great central location for access to most of the island. This rental is truly an excellent value. I recommend it to anybody visiting Maui.

Awesome Place and Owners!

  • 4 of 5

We brought our daughter and 2 young grand kids to stay and the place was perfect. has 3 bedrooms and a large living room for the kids to play. Washer & dryer but I used the clothesline nearby and that was even better. One thing I really appreciated was the fact that Don and Joy were very personable and ready to correct whatever needed doing. I love that they recycle a lot because that is very important to me. Their place is very close to stores and restaurants. They are close to many great beaches. FYI. The bus service in Maui is not great. The local bus runs once an hour. You are better off just renting a car for your holiday.

All in all, a wonderful place to be in Maui!!

Cozy Cottage In The Middle Of Everything!!

  • 5 of 5

We Loved It!!! Quaint cottage with themed bedrooms: Hula Girl Room, Pineapple Room, & Surfboard Room. Centrally located with shopping and restaurants nearby. Kihei Kalama Village (marketplace) was just a short drive away. Beach within walking distance. Stocked with everything you need and then some! Our family enjoyed our stay at the Hale Mahalo and have already shared this special location with friends and family. Will be visiting again! Thank you Joy & Don for a wonderful stay.

House was a great home-away-from-home while exploring Maui. Very relaxed and private accommodations - not packed in with tonnes of other tourists. We were three women and three babies/kids and felt safe and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The house was exactly as described and pictured - no disappointment upon arrival. We would definitely return to this property if returning to Maui. Around the corner is a great little park to watch the sunset.

Great Location, Fantastic Onsite Owners

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed in Joy and Don's rentals, the studio and the 2 BRM, in September 2012. The homes were clean and well-stocked with everything we could want, from snorkel gear to DVDs to a tandem kayak. We loved how centrally located our rental was. Joy and Don -the owners- were warm and helpful. If we had questions about what to do and where to go, Joy and Don were there to help, like personal tour guides. They even came to our rescue when we had problems with our rental car. If you want to feel like you're staying with family while on Maui, I highly recommend it.
