About Laura Stokes
I'm a native of northern California and have been traveling back and forth to Maui for more than 30 years. No matter where I travel, I come back to Maui as my second home. I fell in love with the tropical air and water, the island spirit of aloha, and the variety that Maui has to offer--from the beach, to the upcountry towns and ranches, to the haunting beauty of Haleakala. I hope that the people who share my second home feel that same deep love of the island.

Centrally located in kihei
We really enjoyed our stay--very quiet despite being in the heart of Kihei. Nicely equipped, clean and comfortable--just right.
First time in Maui
Our family of 5 (2 adults and a 13, 10 and 6 yr old) recently stayed at Laura's condo. From the beginning Laura was easy to communicate with and responded quickly to any emails or texts. The condo was clean and welcoming. The AC was nice to have but we rarely used it. Everything we needed was supplied within the condo right down to beach supplies (no snorkel gear but we took our own. You could also rent sets for cheap at many places). Only recommendation would be to have more dishwasher and laundry soap available, especially for families, but that was minor! The condo was close to the beach and many neat stores and restaurants. The grill and pool area were awesome! Found the complex itself very clean and quiet. It was nice to have a parking space for our rental vehicle also. Overall we had a fantastic time here and would for sure stay again if we came back to Kihei!
Thanks for your great review! It was a pleasure to host your family on your first Maui vacation, and I hope you come back again!
Nice and cozy
First and foremost, Laura is the perfect host. Always responds promptly and very nice and helpful. The condo is nice and upgraded. Two rooms, each with their own bath were perfect for two couples. Beds were comfortable and the location was perfect. I would definitely stay here again!
So glad my place worked for you! Come back any time.
Clean, quiet, tastefully decorated condo -we loved Laura's place!
My family of four stayed at Laura's condo in late December 2016 -early January 2017. This was our first trip to Maui and our first experience with VRBO. We could not have been happier with both! There is so much to do and see in beautiful Maui it definitely requires return trips! The condo itself is exactly as it appears in Laura's description and photos. It is very clean, modern, tasteful and comfortable. We appreciated all of the attention to detail: plenty of storage in all of the rooms , including the living room ( no need to store anything at all in your suitcases-unpack completely and feel at home), plenty of bath towels and beach towels, fully stocked kitchen, good bedside reading lamps in both bedrooms ( very important feature for vacation reading!), beach chairs, boogie boards and beach cooler that we used daily, and Laura's excellent binder full of information and recommendations. Laura was very easy to contact and communicate with. She answered all questions promptly and thoroughly and was professional and friendly. We really felt like we knew exactly what we were going to before we got there- absolutely no surprises or disappointments. We also really liked the location with such easy access to beautiful beaches and restaurants. We had great meals at "Three's", Paia Fish Market Southside, and the excellent salad bar at Hawaiian Moon Natural Foods. Went for long walks every morning on South Kihei Road and then back along the beaches-so many people out walking. Thank you Laura for the use of your beautiful place- we would love to come back!
Carolyn, Peter and family
Thanks for your wonderful review! It was a special treat to host you on your first visit to Maui--and I hope you'll come back again!
Everything a family needs!
Laura's unit is clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. Our family of 5 had a glorious holiday vacation and look forward to our next stay in this top notch vacation rental. The location is perfect, within an easy walk to the best family beach on the island, a short drive to many terrific restaurants and sights, and within a complex with a great pool and grill area for off-the-beach relaxation and fun. The unit has beds that are comfortable, dishes, towels, sheets, and beach gear to meet a family's needs, and cooking implements and dining necessities to make mealtimes easy. Laura has thought of all of the every day needs that make a good vacation into a great one.
Thanks for your great review! It was a pleasure to host you for a special holiday with your family, and I'd be more than happy to host you on your next visit.
Fantastic condo in a fantastic location
My family and I had the pleasure of staying in the 2 bed - 2 bath condo in Kihe. We loved the place, the condo unit was easy to access and this was important as my brother is physically handicapped. The condo was well stocked with towels and bedsheets. The condo was very clean, well maintained and beautiful. All our needs were looked after by Laura. I liked how all the happening places were just a stones throw away from the condo. I would highly recommend her place to anybody travelling to Maui. In the end, it was great that we had a beautiful home to go to every night.
Thanks for your great review! You were such great guests--I'd welcome you back any time!
