About Jenni and Dave

Dave and Jenni would like to welcome you to their Garden Oasis in Kihei. We purchased this property in 2013 because we always enjoy the aloha spirit of the islands and love to go paddle boarding, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Dave dabbles with the guitar and ukulele and loves all of the music that is so prevalent in Hawaii. Jenni spent some of her happiest years as a child living in Hawaii and we both feel connected to the island. We currently live in Seattle, and like you, plan our vacation getaways to Maui with our family and friends. We welcome you, your family and friends to our vacation paradise.

Jenni and Dave purchased this house in 2013

Why Jenni and Dave chose South Maui

We chose this house because we really like the community in Kihei. We loved the family feel of the town, the parks, the beaches and it just felt like home. We really wanted a place where we could garden and also walk to restaurants and the beach. We love the neighborhood being so close to everything you could ever need within walking distance including some of our favorite restaurants on the island. We wanted a large enough place where we could spend time with extended family and friends. Reducing our footprint on the environment is important to us, and we love the green energy of this home.

It took us over a year to get the permit and to set up the house. We finished setting the house up in late May 2014. We outfitted this home exactly how we want it for us. We furnished it with the top of the line in all areas, and while it will cost us more than the average vacation home, we think it makes this property very unique and something we can be proud of to share with others and be enjoyed for years to come.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to the places we enjoy – the park with lovely beach sunsets, stand up paddle boarding, the restaurants, coffee, shops, and groceries.

Beautiful home - perfectly appointed.

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 adults and 2 boys ages 8 and 9. The home was the perfect size for all of us. It was lovely, and quite comfortable. The location is close to the beaches, shops, and restaurants.

The house had so many amenities from a fully stocked kitchen to beach items, hair dryers, shampoos/conditioners, lotions, first aid kit, everything you could possibly need.

The Vitamix was wonderful for making our own juices from fruit purchased at a nearby farmers market.

Kihei Garden Oasis is the perfect place for a relaxing Hawaii vacation.

The perfect home for our family.

  • 5 of 5

This 4 bedroom house was more than we ever expected. The amenities that are available made this home over the top. There were tommy Bahama chairs for all the adults, multiple umbrellas, sand toys and real toys for the three year old, beach towels, and boogie boards. The kitchen amenities were also fantastic. Crock pot, vita mix blender, plastic food storage and so much more. This house made our 40th Anniversary so wonderful. All 8 adults want to come back. The location also allowed adults to take walk to the beach, Starbucks, or bars ( that close at 10). Thanks for sharing your wonderful home. We hope to return.

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many homes/condos through VRBO. All of them have been great. This one is a gem among them all. The owners of this house go beyond what you would expect in a rental property. The home itself is lovely. The location was perfect for our family. The amenities were extraordinary. I recommend this home to anyone looking for the right amount of space for a family wanting a fantastic vacation in Hawaii.

Great home base for wedding

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your home. It was a real home away from home. Close to the beach, grocery stores and local eateries.

The home was a great home base for our wedding, it comfortably accommodated our family of 6 adults. Great layout with enough privacy for everyone but cozy enough for gathering indoor our outdoor.

Jenni was great throughout the entire process and made us feel welcomed, as did everyone we came in contact with while we were there.

I can't say enough about how well stocked the home is. Everything you could think of to make a Maui vacation enjoyable! Thank you for your thoughtfulness.

Fantastic home for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent the first 6 of our 10 day vacation here in early June 2017 and it was a wonderful place to return to after busy days at the beach or other activities. The house has almost every conceiveable convenience - amazing, relaxing patio, fully stocked kitchen, great assortment of beach gear, coolers, chairs, towels. There was more than enough room for our family, which include my parents, myself and husband and two teenagers.

The ONLY thing we couldn't find was a cookie sheet and I'm guessing we just weren't looking in the right spot! :) Truely, the house has everything. It's very clean, the furniture is great quality and comfortable.

The outdoor shower was great to have to rinse off before dragging all the sand inside. We spent a lot of time on the patio and never did turn the TV on but the TV was huge and there was a nice selection of movies - we just never needed them. :)

Location was wonderful and within easy walking distance of a few beaches (close driving distance to other beaches), restaurants and coffee shops.

I really don't have any negative comments. It was a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review, Leslie. We definitely try to provide everything imaginable and more for our guests. Yes, we do have cookie sheets, muffin tins, baking pans of all sorts. We have another large cabinet on the other side of the bar which usually have those items in it. I will figure out a way to let people know there is more storage so they can easily find those additional items. I can also be reached at any time for any questions. We are so happy you had a great stay! The hot water outdoor shower is one of my favorite features we added which makes cleaning up after being at the beach so easy. Thank you for staying with us!

Cannot Recommend Highly Enough!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location in the heart of Kihei, totally safe, comfortable space with unmatched amenities!

We stayed 5 nights with a group of 8 friends and never felt cramped. The TVs in each of the 4 bedrooms equipped with cable was awesome, great beach chairs/equipment in the garage, and the patio with convenient outdoor shower and hot tub was a true cherry on top. It is obvious that the owners really want renters to relax and enjoy themselves, and this house made it really easy to accomplish that.

Check in/check out protocol was super easy as well, honestly everything about the experience was smoothe and simple. This house is perfect for a group of couples/friends vacationing together, and the toys in the garage/Xbox and Wii in the living room (with huge tv) made it seem like the perfect place for a family to stay too (Okay, I'm a 27yo male and I may have enjoyed a little Xbox as well).

This place is totally worth it. Thanks so much for letting us stay, Jenni!

The Cove, Charlie Young Beach, Kamaole I
Car: recommended

Kihei Garden Oasis is located in the heart of sunny Kihei, near the breathtakingly beautiful and famous white sand beaches (Kamaole I, II, and III). Just a short walk to all the amenities including Kalama Beach Park, tennis courts, inline skate park, playground, and to the many restaurants, bars, shops, and open air markets and farmer markets in the area. A 10-minute walk to the Cove Beach Park, a great place to surf, stand up paddle board, or sea kayak. Just past the Cove, is Kamaole beaches. Near some best snorkeling on the island. Golf at the many nearby golf courses.
