we loved this house

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 (16-yr-old daughter, 14-yr-old son, 12-yr-old daughter, 8-yr-old son) plus my brother (33 yr-old) stayed here July 2015 and loved it. The only thing that is keeping me from giving this house an "excellent" rating is the fact that the downstairs bedroom didn't have air conditioning and it was very hot in there. We had 2 fans going in there with the window and door open, but it was still very hot. I think a small AC or even a little portable one should be put in there.

Our favorite part of the house is the back porch. We spent most of our time out there. The sofas and chairs out there were very comfortable and it was much cooler than the livingroom. We used the table and chairs out there a lot, too, for meals, card games, or just hanging out. There were several unplanned naps taken out there, too. The neighborhood is so quiet and the breeze so nice. And, of course, the view is breathtaking.

Our daughters shared the king bed in one bedroom, our older son had the bedroom with the full/queen(?) bed to himself, our 8-yr-old son shared the king bed with us in the master bedroom (only because it's what he's used to), and my brother was in the hot bedroom downstairs. It was really nice having 3 full bathrooms. The shower head in the master bathroom was my second favorite part of the house and I regret not writing down what kind it was! We hardly spent time in the livingroom simply because it was too hot, but the porch made up for that. The kitchen was great --everything in perfect working order and the only thing we missed was a rice cooker because we have rice with every meal.

Baby cockroaches and small centipedes were sighted, but that is totally expected in the tropics. There was room for both of our minivans to park in driveway in front of the house. The owner's son is close by if you have any issues and he is very nice and helpful. Our 14-yr-old son didn't realize the screen sliding door was closed and walked right through it one evening ripping it all the way off. The owner's son fixed it without charging us. Overall, we love the house and would stay there every year if only that 4th bedroom downstairs had AC.

Great house to rent

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 8 adults (4 couples) visiting Hawaii for the first time. This house served our purpose extremely well. It is well located for beach activities and as a hoping off point for other areas on Maui. Accommodations were very good and met our needs. We prepared breakfast and dinner at the house almost every night and thoroughly enjoyed our evenings on the lanai. We would recommend this location to any larger group and would definately consider renting this house again on a visit to this area of Maui.

Amazing house, amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time this past week in Maui and a big part of that had to do with this house, The owner and the location! The day before we were to depart for our trip, I received notification that the house we were supposed to stay in (through another VRBO listing) had been cancelled. I contacted the owner of this property and he rented it to me with one day's notice. He was more than accommodating and even brought us fruit! The views were amazing and the home more than spacious to accommodate my family. It's in a perfect location - close to wailea and a walk to the beach. So happy the way our vacation turned out!

Outstanding location, view and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

This review is quite tardy. We stayed for 8 days in February -whale high season. Our son got married on Kam III beach and we made full use of the kitchen as well as everything else. The bedrooms and bathroom were in good condition. The master bath shower wall was wonderful and huge. The view from the lanai was even better than the pictures.

The house was ideal for having our adult kids with us, together with their +1s. No one felt crowded.

The house is at the top of the road leading down to the end of the beaches at Kihei. It is not in the thick of tourist accommodations but it is very close to the town and restaurants. It is about a 20-30 min walk to restaurants etc. By car just a few minutes. The main supermarket is about a 10 min drive and very well stocked.

It is also a great location to get to the various reef snorkeling areas, including protected ones. Highly recommended!

The owner's adult son who maintains their properties sometimes lives in the converted garage. He was very pleasant and helpful. We never knew he was there. That would not at all stop me from going back but that was an aspect of the property not clear from the description.

My only minor quibble was that the kitchen knives were in desperate need of sharpening. That might not matter if you don't plan to cook but the place is well setup for it, especially with the abundance of fresh fish everywhere. I suggest that the owners supply a knife sharpener with the kitchen.

Owner's Response: Aloha, we fixed the dull knives. We try very hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible. If you find anything that you need during your stay -- we will try and accommodate you. We strive to keep the property maintained and all systems operational. To that end, Tim, the owner lives on island and may come by to maintain the yard or get something out of the large storage area under the home. But no one ever comes inside the home when guests are occupying the home.

Wonderful vacation rental in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 10 days in this Kehei vacation rental. We couldn't have asked for more. Great views of the ocean with refreshing breeze off the water. Nice and Safe neighborhood with friendly and welcoming neighbors. Close to the beach with 5 minute walk. Will definately stay here again...hopefully soon!!

Lots of space and very clean

  • 5 of 5

Context: 8 people total: 4 kids aged 5-10, 3 parents, and one grand parent. For my family it was our first time to Maui.

After 4 days in a hotel it was a very welcome change to be in a house. You really are just minutes away from the best beaches in Wailea and the house was stocked with towels, boogie boards and even beach chairs which was a real plus as we didn't have any of that stuff. Most of the basics were already in the pantry, so take a look there first before heading to Safeway (just 10 minutes north). The kitchen was pretty well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc. so we were able to do a bunch of cooking which saved a lot of cash. There were even some games for the kids to play (monopoly, etc.) after a day at the beach.

The house was clean with a lot of space - we had 8 people and it didn't feel crowded at all - grandma was on the main floor bedroom so didn't really have to do stairs. Two bedrooms upstairs were great for the kids and the wife & I were in the main bedroom.

The lanai was a welcome place to hang out with a great view and we enjoyed eating out there or just hanging out.

We were there in April and the only air conditioners that were needed were in the kids rooms - we were able to do very well with fans otherwise. The only downside was light - at night we could have used a few more lights in the house and it was a bit dark in the main room.

As others have noted, it's pretty centrally located and it's not far to head up to Paia or Kaanapali. I'm actually glad it wasn't directly on the beach as it forced us to go out and explore what was around us, and when we got home it was a very quiet neighborhood so it was easy to crash and relax after a long day adventuring with the kids.

In all we had a fantastic time there and would look to rent it again if we ever needed a place in Maui for 2 families.
