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 9 year old and Kylee is 6. Our granddaughter Ivy is 8 and lives on Kauai.

Joy Gerry purchased this House in 1985

Why Joy Gerry chose Kihei

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.

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.

                                                          We really enjoyed our stay at Don and Joy's place. It was clean, comfortable and in a great location for exploring the island. Definitely recommend and hope to be back someday!

                                                          Thank you for your stay in our vacation rental home. We enjoyed hosting you and hope you will come back again the next time you need a place on Maui.


                                                          Don and Joy

                                                          Comfortable, private plantation house close to all amenities

                                                          Timothy P.

                                                          Our family had a fantastic vacation in Don & Joy’s property over the Christmas period. The house is a great size for a party of 5/6, with spacious living room and outdoor area.

                                                          The house is in a quiet setting away from the beach, but within walking distance of the water. A short drive to Kihei brings you to the main beaches.

                                                          The house is also really well located for trips to other parts of the island. We took a leisurely drive to Hana and visited Lahaina as well. The airport and supermarkets are only 20 mins away too.

                                                          Don & Joy are on site to help with any problems, but don’t intrude in any way. There is also chairs and other beach stuff to use. Fully recommended for those who don’t want an all inclusive trip to Maui. Many thanks.

                                                          Don and Joy are wonderful people. We stayed 15 days in their 3 bedroom home and it was perfect. Lots of space for the family of 5 adults, and an ideal location in Kihei. Will definitely book again.

                                                          Good value

                                                          Lisa P.

                                                          Nice house, a little rudimentary but served the purpose. The bonus was to be away from the resort and condo crowds. A/C did the job but not really needed in the evenings as the air cooled off sufficiently. The only 2 things to point out was the street noise, but it appeared to be like this everywhere and there is no dishwasher (so we made the kids wash the dishes like when we were kids....;) Joy and Don were very nice. Lots of things to see, great beaches if you go local and not resort. Would come back.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          The house has new double paned windows so if you want to block out island noises while visiting the island then you can close the windows and turn on the overhead fans or the air conditioners. The house is an older plantation house built in the late 40's and we have left the kitchen as vintage as we can. We had a portable dishwasher in the house for awhile and not one person used it, so we removed it to put in a corner unit kitchen table. Most people on vacation don't actually cook too much so washing a few dishes by hand isn't usually an issue.


                                                          Great location. Excellent hosts

                                                          Heather G.Fishers, IN

                                                          Loved our stay here. Rooms/ beds very comfortable. Air conditioner in each room, lots of amenities. Location was great, centralized for driving throughout the island. The hosts were helpful and friendly. We had a family of 5 with two teenagers so a 2nd bathroom would have been nice. Quiet location far enough off the road, so little traffic noise. Beaches were close enough to walk. Had a great time in Maui! Thank you.

                                                          Wonderful home and generous hosts

                                                          Brian A.

                                                          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.
