About The Owner

I bought this property because the first time I came to Maui I was in Ka'napali it rained the whole time, went down to Kihei and it was beautiful and sunny , I heard that it was like that everyday and it is. sometimes you only have a week for your vacation and weather is important.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Kihei

I choose this property because of the location, its close to everything, the backyard is beautiful with banana trees mango tree and coconut palms, the lani has beautiful white hanging flowers all around it. the house is cozy and comfortable the longer I'm there the longer I wont to stay.

What makes this house unique

I love to wake up in the morning to the sound of the birds and the breeze in the palm trees. then going to Starbucks and getting coffee then going to the beach drinking my coffee, watching the whales then taking a walk on the beach then swimming for my workout. I LOVE IT.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you daily for shareing your private well located home with me and my family,

I always feel at home in Maui, and we can't wait to come back ! My children loved every minute, Mahalo and God Bless Heidi

Best Family Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Maui, largely due to our awesome accommodations! Marilyn's house was FULLY stocked with everything we would need for our family of 4. She has everything you would need to cook meals in the kitchen. We saved so much money by cooking breakfast and most lunches at home. There is ample extra bedding, pillows, towels (including beach towels!), beach chairs (really nice ones and a variety for your choosing), boogie boards, beach toys.... she even had sunblock, bug spray, and aloe which came in handy after our long days at the beach and snorkeling. She has some snorkel gear, but we ended up renting our own at Boss Frogs a few blocks down.

Our sons are 9 & 13 and it was so nice to see them take a break from electronics and chase the hundreds of geckos outside in the BEAUTIFULLY large back yard.

Marilyn is a kind, attentive landlord that is easy to communicate with. You can tell that she takes pride in her house as it is very clean and well taken care of. You can also tell that she cares about her guests because there is more than enough stuff to make your stay stress free and enjoyable. She even bought a brand new boogie board before we arrived because the other ones were old or broken. Before your trip, you should give her a call. She will answer any questions you have.

The town of Kihei is super cool! Not the tourist nightmare like Lahaina. There was a mixture of tourists and locals and it wasn't too crowded. It's also close to Wailea which has fantastic snorkeling beaches! There is a little bit of everything in Kihei including a skate park and pick-up basketball games every night. Great restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and bars, all a few blocks from the house.

I would definitely recommend this house. You can't beat the price for all that you get. Our family was very comfortable here and we hope to visit again some day. Thanks Marilyn!

Tropical and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Marilyn's place for 10 nights in January. We found the place to be very comfortable and spacious! It has everything you need in the kitchen, movie channels galore, lots of beach equipment and the location is unbeatable. The only one downfall was the lack of natural light in the condo. Being that it's so tropical and the beautiful plants and trees everywhere, it shades the light from coming in. Thanks for a great stay!

Great spot in Kihei, with a handful of watch-outs.

  • 3 of 5

It was our very first time in Maui for my new husband and I and the Beach House was the first stay we booked, for 6 nights. Marilyn was easy to communicate with and she made herself very available once we checked in. We would have given our stay 4 stars if not for the after service we experienced when we returned to Toronto.

PROS: 2-level unit, lots of space! Very well stocked, not brand new but went with the beach theme. Movie channels galore. Beach chairs, boogie board, sun umbrella came in handy.

CONS: be prepared for lots of signs with instructions - we counted 16+. Shower wasn't draining well (Marilyn gave us the heads-up but wasn't able to get it fixed during our stay, so we showered in ankle-deep water). AC was limited - we were asked to not use the upright unit in the 2nd flr bdrm for more than 3 hrs at a time (because it's expensive, you'll see the sign). Ceiling fans helped but we were uncomfortable at times.

When we checked-out we were sad to leave - despite some of its quirks we had really enjoyed our stay there and left Marilyn a huge thank you message in the guestbook. What happened next put a damper on our whole experience:

Before leaving, we put in a reg load of towels (max 4 large, 2-3 small) in the washing machine outside. We could have left the pile for the cleaners (since we were paying the cleaning fee) and in hindsight we should have, but, we're Canadian, we were feeling helpful! We did hear the washer banging around but couldn't get it to stop after checking the load; Marilyn said that it must have been an unbalanced. 3 wks later, I asked Marilyn about the damage deposit and when we should expect it, since we hadn't heard anything otherwise. Her response: "Repair to dryer (sic) was $x, because of overloading it that caused the drum to come off track, refund balance $x, was fixed by Appliance Dr. in Kihei". Additional messages were exchanged, with us asking her to reconsider and her final response to us was out of sorts, accusing us of coming into her home and overloading the washer (not dryer) even though there was a sign that said not to, and that the repairman said it must have been "extremely overloaded for it to break the way it did". If we were to be held responsible for any damage, we should have been alerted within 24-48 hours of discovery proving fault. At the end, appropriate protocol was not followed and the bottom line was more important to the owner.

Owner response here is 100% expected, refund is not.

Owner's Response: I am so happy you enjoyed your vacation at my house , it was a pleasure having you there, I know there was not malicious intent in damaging my washing machine mistakes happen sometimes , I always try to make the house as accommodating as I possibly can, I sincerely hope you come back and enjoy my beach house again in the future Best wishes and congratulations Marilyn

Great Time in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic time staying at this spacious property. It was such a nice break from the condo/resort scene on Maui where we could feel at home in our own little home. Steps from the beach to enjoy sunsets or building sandcastles with our daughter. The house was clean, fully stocked with everything we needed, had much more space than we ever could need. The upstairs master bedroom had a full sitting area, walk in closet, large bathroom with dual showerheads and separate vanity area too! We didn't need to use the portable air conditioner at all because of all the screened windows and fans. The fenced in backyard was a jungle oasis with flowering plants hanging from the trellis that covers the patio. Palm and banana trees home to adorable little geckos and birds. Snorkel equipment and boogie boards for the family too. Perfect location walking distance to farmers market, coffee shops and restaurants. We can't wait to visit again on our next vacation!!

Really Lovely, Comfortable and Clean Beach House. Nice and very Helpful Owner.

  • 5 of 5

We (4) had a really nice stay. The beach house is very spacious, clean and comfortabel. It is also located centrally. Kitchen is very well equipped. We enjoyed barbecue in the garden.

The owner and neighbours are really helpful and polite. We definitely would book the house again. We had a great time. There is absolutely nothing to complain about.
