"My family and I stayed here in early August 2016. I read all of the reviews prior to our booking of this property so, I know how important the reviews are. It was my first time booking through VRBO and I was a little skeptical with renting a property from a complete stranger far, far away from home. Needless to say, our experience was absolutely fantastic! Robin was a great communicator and always got back to me promptly with answers to my questions. She was extremely organized and I appreciate her making this a painless, worry-free first time experience!
The pictures are spot on! This beautiful home is right on the ocean! A beautiful back yard! We had breakfast outside every morning and watched the early morning surfers. There were even sea turtles. The home has everything you would possible need. Towels, beach towels, cookware, all the appliances (large and small), and a good stock of seasonings, toilet paper, paper towel and laundry soap!
The Oceanside pool is a little hike from the property but, well worth it! Our kids were able to swim and boogie board just down a little ways from the back yard. The two other pools looked really nice too!
The biggest plus to this property is the location! So close to down town Lahaina by all the shops, restaurants and harbor. Many beautiful beaches close by. Koa's and Kimo's were our favorite restaurants! The Royal Lahaina Resort Luau was exceptional! Lots to do!!
We did have an issue with tiny ants. We had them on bathroom counters, in the kitchen, and on the floors in the bedrooms. There was ant spray provided and once we used it, they were gone. It was a minor setback. From what I understand, these small ants are very common there. The upstairs bedroom with the two twin beds was pretty small. The two young men who shared that room were 6'0 and 6'4. The ceilings were too low for them and they mentioned their feet hung over the end of the beds. This room would be more ideal for small children.
Overall, we had a trip of a lifetime! My family and I were so grateful to find this little piece of heaven! We already miss it and are discussing when we can get back to Maui!
Highly recommend this property!"
