About Steve Grogan

Diane currently works for the County of Maui, Finance Department and is active in music playing piano/electronic keyboard and singing; also enjoys tennis and golf.

Steve is recently retired from the Maui Department of Parks and Recreation and now manages the Bed & Breakfast. He also is active in music, playing guitar and bass and singing. He is very active in tennis and racquetball

They are both from Cleveland, Ohio originally but moved to Maui on their honeymoon in 1978.

Steve Grogan purchased this studio in 2001

Why Steve Grogan chose Kula

We travel frequently and have enjoyed staying in bed and breakfast houses on numerous occasions. We have met many interesting people in our travels and now, we can continue to enjoy making new friends through hosting a bed and breakfast ourselves,

Plus, with no kids at home now, we have a lot extra space available

What makes this studio unique

We chose the location of our house based on having lived on Maui for many years. Here in Kula, we are not in the crowded tourist areas, but they are easily accessible. At our elevation of 2600 feet above sea level, the temperatures are very comfortable for us year round. We have great views and few neighbors. From our back yard, you can walk all the way to the top of Haleakala Volcano. You have to cross one road and climb a few cattle fences, but you cross thru only ranch land and National Park property ( I did it once, but it is steep).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were very happy to host Shelly and Sam. They were the best. We would gladly have them visit again and highly recommend them to other hosts

Can’t wait to be back!

  • 5 of 5

Property and Host exceeded every expectation i had during my stay. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous! It’s very well maintained and extremely inviting. I truly think i took more pics of the house than anything else on my trip. The owners were just the sweetest and their demeanor made you feel at home. Would definitely stay here again on my next visit!!

We have been to Maui before, but wanted to explore more of the upcountry. We were very please that we did. Our accommodations were perfect. Our hosts, Steve and Diane were top notch. Making sure we had everything we needed and gave us excellent recommendations on places to eat, etc. The place was clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again :)

Very nice people, but...

  • 3 of 5

The hosts are very hospitable and kind. Also, very knowledgeable about the area, if you have any questions. The sleeping quarters have a wonderful view and are very private. However, the carpet was visibly dirty and the pillows needed to be replaced. Hopefully these details are attended to soon. Mahalo for the stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Melissa, thanks for the review. Regarding the carpet; a previous guest had spilled something (coffee). We had it cleaned, but there is still a color difference by a shade. However, it is Clean and regularly vacuumed. I could have back-charged the previous guest, but that seemed a little harsh for such a minor imperfection. Regarding the pillows; there was (and is) a pile of pillows and blankets next to the chest of drawers. If you did not see it, I wish you would have asked me. The pillows are all new and zipped into a sanitary liner. The cases are washed after every guest. Hope all is well for you and yours. Aloha, Steve
