About The Owner


I have lived in Maui for 25 years and this is my paradise! I take great pride in the comfort of my guests. My wish is for you to have a wonderful time and come back!

I have 3 beautiful kids, two of which are pro surfers and a beautiful daughter.

I live up the street from Hula Hideaway. Whenever I go to this unit, i feel as if I have died and gone to heaven.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose Kahana (Maui)

I chose the large studio verses a one bedroom for the reason that your bed is on top of the ocean, it is like a really big hotel room. Having a lil room off the ocean did not make scence to me.

The complex is the closest to the ocean in all of West Maui, when you are on the Lanai all you see is ocean, no one can see you unless on a surfboard or boat!

What makes this condo unique

The ocean lulling you to sleep, the quality and view!

Best place to stay on Maui !

  • 5 of 5

"Hula Hideaway" was so amazing ! It was so hard to pack up, close the door and head back to MN. This is the second time for us here and as the key opened the door, our hearts were renewed to a warm Aloha welcome back ! We absolutely love it here !

Your lanai gave us time to just relax, enjoy some meals, watch the morning blowholes of whales, the afternoon sighting of turtles right below, and the evening breathtaking sunsets. And let me not forget about the falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of the ocean waves below !

The time in Maui was so wonderful, my husband and I are looking forward to our return back to this property again in 2019. The countdown is on ! 355 days if I am correct ! Thanks again Jill for sharing your place in paradise with us !

Maloha ! R and D from MN.

Lovely place!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a ten day stay at Hula Hideaway celebrating our thirtieth anniversary and what a wonderful stay we had in Jill’s lovely condo. We arrived to a delicious box of Hawaiian chocolates that we thoroughly enjoyed.

Although dark when we arrived, the view of the moon from the lanai was breathtaking. We couldn’t wait to see the view the next morning and we were not disappointed. The sunrise was absolutely beautiful! As previously stated by other guests, you can’t get any closer to the water without being in the water. The turtles greeted us each morning along with many whales in the distance. The surfers were out each day as well that provided additional entertainment. We slept with the AC off and windows and doors open listening to the surf. It was wonderful!

The condo was very clean and tastefully decorated. Although we did not do too much cooking, the kitchen was very nice with nice appliances including a small dishwasher. The WiFi worked great as did the flat screen tv. Checking in and out was easy using a lockbox with the key inside.

We would definitely stay at the lovely Hula Hideaway again and plan to tell our friends and family about it. Thank you again Jill for sharing you lovely condo!!

A Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

I’ve rented dozens of properties over the years and this is by far the best. This condo is beautiful, comfortable, tastefully decorated, well-equipped, perfectly priced, and home to the most beautiful view. Sit on the lanai and watch the water, the whales, the turtles, and realize just how good life is. You’ll never want to leave.

Stuff to know: great water pressure and nice tub, comfortable bed, little luxuries like washer and dryer and dishwasher, lots of beach equipment. Do be prepared to walk up two flights of stairs with your luggage, and bring your favorite DVDs as the cable isn’t great. Get takeout poke from the Liquor store near Star Noodles- not kidding, it’s the very best around and you can grab sake there too. Every morning look down and say hi to the 3-4 sea turtles grazing on the algae. The pool was closed when we were there but we didn’t mind.

Wonderful experience and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Maui and we were always blessed with great rentals, however the Hula Hideaway is a class of its own. Amazing studio with charm and a breathtaking view (ocean, sunlight, sunsets, etc). We had breakfast on the lanai every morning and watched the sea turtles right beneath us. As we eloped the Hula Hideaway will always be part of our memory and we can highly recommend this West Maui rental. Lahaina and the beautiful Kapalua Bay are 5-10 minutes away.

This is the kind of place you realize the blessing of spending time on the islands and the inspirational atmosphere of Hawai’i. Thank you Jill for sharing this piece of paradise with us!

amazing vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Jill's place was unforgettable. It has an amazingly beautiful view. We could have stayed there a month. It is exactly as the photos show. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, the apartment is clean, the furnishing are lovely. It is a very romantic, gorgeous place. Location is indescribably perfect. Wonderful beyond belief.
