About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Near Beach

Rent directly from a private local owner instead of a large management company.

Come stay with us here in sunny south Maui at our beautiful, lovingly remodeled ocean view home with private pool. There are amazing ocean views from almost all rooms in the house and the wrap around covered deck is perfect for indoor/outdoor style island living. The crystal clear all tiled pool is for your private use with no other rentals on the property (most Maui Meadows homes have a cottage). Several beautiful white sand beaches are a short two minute drive away.

This home is one of five legal private home rentals in the desired island neighborhood of Maui Meadows. We passed all county regulations and now can share our lovely property with visitors to this special island we call home (Permit #STKM 2013/0005). There are no other buildings on our 1/2 acre land - the private use of our 3 bedroom, 2 bath fully renovated home and pool makes for a memorable vacation. This home even has it's own elliptical trainer with an unparalleled view and pool table for evening entertainment. We are a short two minute drive to the beach, several restaurants and shopping.

About Steve and Tamara Farwig

We have lived on Maui for the last 18 years. Steve is a firefighter with the county of Maui and Tamara now runs our vacation rental business. Our two children were born here on Maui but have roots in Canada where Tamara grew up, Steve lived for years and grandparents reside. We also have studios and one bedroom condos in Kihei and Wailea that we rent to vacationers.

Steve and Tamara Farwig purchased this house in 2000

Why Steve and Tamara Farwig chose Kihei

This is a legal, permitted vacation rental home in a unique residential neighborhood that has been known for renting to visitors in the past but was previously mainly illegal to do so. There are no other buildings on this property like most Maui Meadows homes so it is completely private.

What makes this house unique

We currently live just a few minutes away and personally take care of all our guests needs. The advantage of an on-island owner who self manages is a property you can be sure is well taken care of.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We LOVED your home! our kids swam in the pool each day and we loved eating dinner out on your patio deck. Your home is beautiful and our stay here was perfect. Thank for opening up your home! We had an amazing trip we will cherish forever! Mahalo!

Awesome vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 10 day stay at this amazing house. The house was overall great. The beds were comfortable, the pool was awesome, and the views from the lanai were breathtaking. The house came with everything we needed to make for an enjoyable vacation including: beach chairs and umbrellas, beach towels, pool toys and floats for the kids, grill and full kitchen, and plenty of space to spread out to relax or read a book. At this price point, I would recommend this house. A few minor drawbacks: a bit of a drive up and down the mountain to get to the house (although you get a great view once you get there), the master bedroom has a noisy AC unit, the master bedroom also has a dusty smelling closet, the kitchen utensils were adequate, not great. But despite these minor drawbacks, we loved the place.

Perfect location on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home in a quiet residential area. The location was perfect for all of our sightseeing excursions. We were close to grocery stores, restaurants and the beaches in Kihei, as well.

The home was spotless when we arrived! The kitchen was well stocked and the bedrooms were all located a distance from the living areas. All of us enjoyed quiet mornings on the deck with an incredible view of the ocean and mountains.

We enjoyed our stay in paradise and hope that we will be able to return some day.
