Before deciding to turn our home into a vacation rental we raised our family here. Now that our three sons have married and moved out we figured it was the perfect time. We live in a separate cottage on property for your convenience.

TROY NIELSEN purchased this house in 2000

Why TROY NIELSEN chose Kihei

We love this area of Maui. The small town way of life with all the beaches and things to do. Plus the excitement of tourism and resort life to balance everything out.

What makes this house unique

What we love about our home is the ocean view just beyond the pool and spa when you first enter though the front door. The beautiful kitchen, bathrooms, living area. The built in barbecue and fire pit not to mention the vaulted wood ceilings.

Wonderful Spot in Beautiful Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 9 days in Troy & Diana's wonderful place during July -- 4 adults & 2 children. The lovely clean house, really big pool (with shallow areas for little ones & maximum depth of 5 ft), surrounding yard and owners made our visit delightful! Beds were comfortable with quality linens, nicely updated bathrooms--particularly the master with it's multiple shower heads and sprayers, outdoor grill and fire pit helped make our evening meals special and the central A/C was a blessing at night! Great washer/dryer, beautiful view out the front kitchen window of flowering plants & the back area with its ocean views, along with so many other touches that made this a very special rental. FYI, if you shop at the Safeway nearby, apply for their "discount card". It only takes a few minutes to complete the info and you get the card immediately. It saved us over a hundred dollars shopping there.

All we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families, with 4 adults and 6 kids staying at Troy and Diana's house and we had an INCREDIBLE time here! Troy and Diana were very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the island. Even though their cottage is right on the property, we felt like the home was all "ours" for the 8 nights we were there. They were not intrusive at all.

The house was great. The kitchen was a great place, open and well equipped and we gathered here several nights for home-made dinners. Beds were very comfortable and even though some of the kids slept on blow-up mattresses, they were very comfortable as well.

The younger kids essentially lived in the pool/hot tub whenever we were home and it was perfect for them. It was such a relief to be able to watch them have a great time in the pool while we prepared meals or cleaned up. We would not have been able to do such in a condo or resort with a shared pool.

The home is very close to the beaches and shopping in Kihei, plus a Safeway. We were within minutes of driving to several beaches, all with different characters.

It was a struggle to leave and we can't wait to go back some day.

Thank you so very much for contributing to an amazing vacation for our two families, Troy and Diana. You guys are the best! :)

Nice Location, beautiful spot but needs more maintenance

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The owners are nice and helpful. The Location is very nice and the view is great, but unfortenately it needs more maintenance. The Pool tiles are decrepit at the edges, the Jacuzzi has a layer of filth because it didnt got clean for a while. Other then that

it´s just little things which bother after a while, it´s very difficult to open and close the sliding door of the living room, he wants extra money for burning the torches. Kitchen is well equippt. Nice living room with big TV. Owner lives right next door.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 4 star review. However the word filth does not compute. Our Jacuzzi is immaculate. On windy days teeny tiny debris from a neighboring tree can sometimes cover ever so slightly the top layer of water. Our silt net scoops it out in ten seconds. Also we've been scheduling dates to replace tiles on the vanishing edge (which by the way are not visible unless you go all he way around to the back side of the pool) for the past two months but we have been booked solid. We have the materials and have scheduled dates coming up this month to complete the work. Our diligence in keeping the home highly maintained is our constant goal. This home is beautiful. By the way, our property is on 1/2 acre. We are the furthest neighbor from the vacation rental Thank you for your constructive criticism in helping us maintain our five star status. Aloha

Beautiful house/location/vacation!

  • 5 of 5

House was just as represented, very nice overall. Great to meet Troy & Dianna, nice to have them on-site if needed, but not intrusive at all. Location from airport, beaches, & other activities was perfect. Hot-tub & pool A+. Would definitely rent again!

Lovely home in perfect location

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful week we had staying in Troy and Dianna's beautiful home just above Wailea. The house is spacious, comfortable, and has everything you need, including a jacuzzi and pool (although the ocean is only a five minute drive). I admit it can take me a few days to learn new technology (and I'm baffled by the universal remote), but if we had an issue Troy was there in a jiffy to fix it. He and Dianna are steps away in the guest house but it was very clear the main house was ours for our stay so it was always helpful to have them nearby and never a problem. If you're looking for a comfortable home close to Wailea, this is it. Also, you can't beat that sunset right off the back patio!
