About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 (+2 please ask)

The "Ohana" is a separate "Mother in Law" Apartment in our house. We live in a very quiet and residential neighborhood in North Kihei which is very close to the famous "Sugar Beach Bakery" (famous lilikoi key lime pie and fine croissants) and to the Kihei Canoe Club. The center of town is a short drive.

You will be staying in a private separate "Ohana" (like a "mother in law Apartment") in the lower floor of our 2 story house. It is a fully furnished and fully equipped Apartment, suitable for longer term stay. We do live above where we have another guest room.

The "Ohana" has one bedroom and one bathroom with a large walk in shower. The living room is open but it has a very comfortable sleeper which can be turned into another Full/ Queen bed. (there is a small extra charge for extra guest ) The kitchen is fully equipped and is ready for real cooking and /or baking.

We also have quite a bit of storage for your suit cases and other potential equipment, e.g golf gear. We provide Beach chairs and Towels. Depending on the conditions, we are happy to share the use of out SUP (Stand up paddle board).

The "Ohana" has it's separate entrance and also very private large Lanai and your own patio for grilling and relaxing and to enjoy some shade underneath the Palm tress.

Towels and toiletries will be provided.

North Kihei, centrally located on the island, is a about 15-20 minute drive from the airport, 20 minutes to Paia and about 25 minutes to Lahaina. All the best beaches are here on the South side of the island and you will have access to all of them within minutes.

About Maxi Lohrengel-West

My husband, Woody and I have been living and working on Maui for 5 years now and we love to share the "Aloha spirit."

We lived in many places both in he US and Europe and feel more at home here than anywhere else.

It is a privilege to be able to share the unique island culture with our guests.

"The worse day on Maui is still better than the best day any where else."

A piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our perfect Vacation!!

We arrived on January 30th and stayed until March 1st, 2017 and thoroughly loved our stay. The one bedroom unit is in a quiet residential neighborhood, designated off street parking and a private entrance. The unit is well stocked with kitchen supplies, and was plenty big enough for my husband and I. We had company over for about a week and the owners Maxi and Woody were more than accommodating, even offering to make up the couch/bed for them in the living room. Laundry facilities were on site and free, and they even had Tide laundry detergent for our use (we brought our own).

The unit has a patio and a view of their tropical trees/plants, fruit trees and the new saline pool. We used the pool which was a comfortable temperature and we were pleased to learn that their saline pool has much less chemicals which we very much appreciated.The location is a few blocks from a bakery, ABC store, and an ice cream shop which we were able to easily walk to. We were able to walk to the beaches near the unit and watch the kite surfers, and wind surfers. The location isn't close as close to our favorite beaches (Charlie Young, CAM 1, CAM 2, etc., but a five minute ride and we were there. The benefits of privacy and quietness far outweighed the need to be close to our beaches.

We almost hate to give a positive review of this property as we want to be able to come back here in 2018, and again and again after that. The location and price of this property is sure to book up fast.

Great location, clean and comfortable, well equipped

  • 4 of 5

For easy access to everywhere in Maui and good weather, north Kihei is hard to beat. Although there are not as many tourist amenities within walking distance as other locations it is also quieter in north Kihei. The apartment is really comfortable especially the bed. The back yard is lovely and lush. You can't see the neighbouring houses. The apartment is also well equipped with little things like a coffee bean grinder and soap dispenser. The hosts are very nice and responsive. In an ideal world it would be good to see the ocean and not have people living above you but that is called a cabin on the ocean and costs twice as much and the beach is only a five minute walk away. Being on the ground floor is also convenient for ease of access to toys and sports equipment such as bicycles and surfboards. Definitely recommended.
