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.

This home includes:

High Speed Internet

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!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six adults unanimously agreed that our accommodations in Maui were truly awesome. Great view of the ocean and very close proximity to beaches, shopping and great restaurants. Also within 1/2 hour to the airport, Lahaina and Paia. Beds were comfortable and we lacked for nothing. My one and only negative was that the bathrooms could have better ventilation (maybe fans) as it could get quite steamy after showering in the hot weather we had during our visit. I would highly recommend Steve and Tamaras home in Wailea to anyone searching for vacation accommodations in Maui.

Wonderful Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 women (my mom, sister and two daughters). The home was immaculate and as described. Quiet, private, tropical. Amazing views. We loved hanging by the pool, then grabbing our beach towels and hitting the beach.

Thanks Steve and Tamara

Amazing rental home in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

Came to Maui for a week with 5 close girlfriends and absolutely loved our stay at Tamara and Steve's. From the beginning our hosts were great in providing us with any information we wanted about the rental home. The photos of the house displayed are completely accurate, we couldn't have asked for a more spacious, modern and beautiful living space for the week! The one thing the photos don't do justice is the incredible view of the mountains and water, we had the most incredible sunsets overlooking the gorgeous Hawaiian backdrop. Amenities including the pool and hot tub were perfect and we felt very safe in the neighborhood. A close drive to Wailea and Kihei for both food and beach options, this rental home is perfect for any family or friend group looking for a sanctuary in Maui!

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Steve and Tamara!! We had a wonderful stay in your home and would highly recommend to anyone interested in a trip to Maui!! We were celebrating our 10 year wedding Anniversary along with friends Birthday and could not complain about a single thing! The view was amazing, the pool and hot tub were used daily as well as the beach towels, chairs snorkel gear, & coolers etc. which were a huge bonus! The beds were comfy and the house had everything we needed! We were so thrilled to be so close to everything from beaches to restaurants to activities such as snorkel trips and zip lining! We are hoping to come back again one day with our kids to enjoy Hawaii once again. What a magical Place!
