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.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We were on a special trip for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and all 6 of us had a fabulous time. The pool and views of the property are stunning and so relaxing. We enjoyed our 6am wakeup call watching the sunrise in the back yard and having our own pool to lounge around was everything you could ask for. The house was well equiped with everything you might need which made it feel like home. Thank you again for the wonderful stay... we will be back some day im sure !

Wonderful Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing 8 nights our family had! On arrival we were greeted by Troy and Dianna. They made us feel very welcome and walked us round their beautiful home, showing us all the extra features that the house had to offer. From the moment we looked out of the sliding patio doors we were stunned by the wonderful view. The poolside area was so inviting, the pool was very big and the views of the mountains, trees and ocean were impressive. This view often kept us at the house rather than venturing out!

The house is very spacious, very comfortable, very well stocked and unbelievably clean. It is by far the cleanest and tidiest home we have ever rented! The bedrooms are spacious with comfy beds and quality linens. The master bedroom and bathroom are very impressive and we all enjoyed using the shower, especially as we could listen to music whilst enjoying the best soaking from the many shower heads! The kitchen was very large, well stocked and was equipped with every possible electrical appliance or utensil you could think of. The outside sound system was a huge hit with our teenagers as was the swimming pool.

The location of the home was perfect, set high up in a residential area giving us privacy and perfect views. It is close to a variety of fantastic beaches, restaurants and supermarkets and great location when exploring other parts of the island. We especially enjoyed spending time at Makena Beach (Big Beach) which was only a few minutes drive away.

We would highly recommend this home to any family. We are already missing the birds chirping and the stunning views. Thank you so much Troy and Dianna for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!

An unforgettable family trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first extended family vacation and we feel so fortunate to have found Troy and Dianna's beautiful home to rent. This South Kihei jewel was perfect for our family of 10 (including 2 grandparents and 4 kids aged 3-10). The kids enjoyed the child friendly pool and the adults loved the hot tub. The sliding doors that opened completely to the backyard with the Sonos music system is the best way to appreciate the beauty of Maui! Details we appreciated: abundance of beach towels, bath towels, fully stocked and equipped kitchen, and comfortable queen sized air mattresses. The location is ideal--close to Safeway, Foodland for groceries and local eateries. Ulua beach is a 5 minute drive away, great for snorkelling with young kids. The owners are easily accessible to help with minor issues that came up (they live in a house on the same property so we still retain our privacy). Mahalo Troy and Dianna for opening your home to us!

Excellent choice for our family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 7 nights with mom and dad, grandma and three kids (11-18). Very happy with the home. We had plenty of room to spread out, and -- while we made many trips around Maui -- we also spent time enjoying the beautiful pool and view at the home. We liked Kihei a lot -- very informal, relaxed little town. And we were only 5 minutes literally from Wailea and all of its fancy amenities and stores and restaurants.

The beaches near this home are amazing. "Big Beach" is maybe 10-12 minutes away and is the nicest beach we've ever been to.

The home itself was in exceptional condition. Clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything you could want. Excellent.

Only caveat is that I'd say "room for 10" is a bit of a stretch. We had 6 and were more than fine. But 10 would have been very tight. The kitchen table seats 5 and there are three beds total. Sleeping 10 would have meant 4 people sharing two aero-beds,

Highly recommend this home for groups of 7-8 or fewer.

Troy and Diana were very kind, friendly, accomodating hosts. Mahalo.
