About Marilyn

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.

Marilyn purchased this house in 2001

Why Marilyn 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!

Living like a local

  • 4 of 5

The house is on the main road in Kihei that runs along the ocean. Close to the beach, to get to one of the beaches (Kalama Beach Park), you just walk along the road for a few blocks. Also close to Kamaole Beach. There are many, many food places within walking distance. Starbucks and a grocery store (Foodland, which is like Safeway) nearby. 10-15 mins to drive to Wailea beaches and stores. No air conditioning in the house, the windows have open slats and there are fans. Since you keep windows open to keep the breezes flowing, you can hear the cars on the road. It wasn't that bad once you get used to it. In the back yard there is a coconut tree. There is a washer and dryer. There are beach towels and boogie boards provided. The snorkeling gear is not that great, as visitors lose parts. You can buy your own in Costco when you land (right next to the airport), or rent from one of the many places next to this house. Also, the drain in the shower was clogged up, so the water would fill up in the shower. We let the owner know when we left, and she said she would send someone to look at it. The owner contacted us beforehand to ask if we had any questions. Overall, this house was a nice casual place to stay at where you could feel like a local and at home.

Recommend stopping by Maui Bread Co. (in Kihei), try the lilikoi filled bun. Also, right when you land in Kahului, there is a food truck lot 5 mins from the airport across the street from Costco where they have good poke at Like Poke?. If you want to see turtles chilling, stop at Hookipa Beach which is just past Paia if driving from the direction of Kahului airport. If you go on the road to Hana, make sure to drive past Hana to Wainapanapa State Park for the black lava sand beach.

Owner's Response: Aloha I am so glad that you enjoyed my house it’s so nice because it’s close to everything and it’s very comfortable I always ask my renters if they ever have a problem in the house with any of the plumbing or electrical or just anything I like to know right away because I will get it fixed right away, I wish I would’ve known about the plumbing when you first arrived I asked people not to rinse off all their sand when they come home from the beach in the shower but sometimes they do anyway and the shower gets stopped up , I have a plumber on call whenever there’s a problem . it’s a house not a resort or a condo so little things go wrong once in a while, I’m having AIR CONDITIONING put in this month !!! so the windows don’t have to be opened, it’s going to be so nice when it’s warm but mostly there’s such a wonderful breeze that blows through the windows , I love the Openess , depending what day of the week it is it does get busy on South Kihei Road on Saturday nights , otherwise it’s just all the birds in the morning that wake me up, which I love . I don’t supply boogie boards or snorkel gear anymore it’s too hard to fix and replaced all the time but there’s a place down the street that you can rent whatever you need many people buy things and leave them at the house so they’re usually are boogie boards and snorkel gear but I don’t put them in my description anymore Mahalo for your review

Exceeded my expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this home was amazing. We were initially looking for a 2 bedroom (we have 4 children) but without any luck we settled for this one. And I’m glad we did! Plenty of space. Between the futon upstairs, queen bed and a pack and play crib we all slept in the giant bedroom upstairs. Not to mention there are 2 really nice futons on the main level. The property is very private with a fully enclosed medium sized backyard and fully enclosed front yard/ parking area. There were beach toys, boogie boards, a couple snorkel sets, beach umbrella, 2 coolers and plenty of beach towels for our trips to the beach. There was an electric George Foreman grill which was ok and a small charcoal grill and between the 2 we bbq’d some amazing meals. The location of the property was very convenient. We walked to Kalama Park so the kids could play in the park. The beach was a little far for a walk but numerous beaches less than a 5 minute drive away. Marilyn the owner was very accommodating and quick with responses. She does not live on site but has a caretaker living in the small home attached to the rental. That being said, you wouldn’t even know there was another home attached to the rental. Very separate and private. We had no worries about our noisy kids bothering neighbors or vise versa. So I recommend this home for the large family, small family or even just the couple. Clean, private, affordable, quiet and convenient. Thanks Marilyn. We’ll be back to stay again, I won’t bother looking for a 2 bedroom.

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!
