About Stewart & Andrea
Aloha we are Stewart & Andrea, Welcome to our "Beautiful Maui Home" Our Hidden Hawaiian Gem property, is our home, and our Maui "Pride & Joy". We are opening it up to you, our guest, to enjoy too; We believe you will truly, love our property, and it's gorgeous location. We purchased our property in 1988 and started building this beautiful home in 1989. With many years of hard work and perseverance, we have finally been able to complete the build, and create this beautiful vacation rental property, which we share with other folks like you, who appreciate the finer things in life. Our property was originally designed and built by Maui's own, Polynesian Pole Homes Inc. The conceptional design of Polynesian Pole Homes, was created to fit the steep hillside properties found on Maui, minimizing the need for extensive, expensive, grading and earth moving. Although our Polynesian Pole Home is built on a flat lot, (not a hillside) it retains the structural character, and beautiful exposed natural woods it's designer intended for these homes, all coupled with an extensive open floor plan and gorgeous Ocean views from every room, truly makes it, "Our Paradise" and our "Beautiful Maui Home". No matter where you choose to stay on Maui; We sincerely, hope you will enjoy your Maui vacation and the place you choose to stay; But especially, if you choose to stay in our "Beautiful Maui Home" ! A little bit about us, we both work full time jobs Stewart in construction, Andrea in accounting and nursing, we work long & hard hours so we can go on vacations too. In the summer time we love to take our motorcycle across country, visit different areas of our beautiful USA & camp. In the winter time we love to snow ski as many different places the season will allow. We have skied in Canada & the United States, never in Europe, that's on the "Bucket List" :=) Aloha, and best wishes to all, Stewart & Andrea :=)

Why Stewart & Andrea chose Kihei
This high quality, very well appointed home, is located in a very quiet neighborhood and is perfect for the vacationing family or couples that like to get a way from the crowds, have the ability to be able to provide their own dining, but also like to be close world class restaurant's, best beaches all the shops, golf & many more vacationing amenities the Island has to offer. The home is extremely spacious and is full of character and Hawaiian charm, all accompanied by the absolutely, stunning vista's of the Pacific Ocean and gorgeous, evening sunsets. It is truly a perfect "Home-Away-From-Home" location, for your Maui vacation :) The property is located 20 mins from the airport in the southern part of Kihei, in a quiet residential subdivision bordering Wailea and 2-3 minutes drive, (approx 3/4 mile) from the beautiful white sandy beach of Keawakapu, considered (by locals) one of Maui’s best & safest swimming beaches on Maui. From December thru April, you will be able to whale-watch from the beach and with binoculars (provided) from our patio, grocery stores & much more are a 3-5min drive from the house. The property is located 600ft above sea level, well above the tsunami zone - There are no midnight evacuations here due to tsunami flood warnings, as you would find at the lower elevations closer to sea level .. A tsunami warning may or may not occur during your stay on Maui, but if it does, they are not much fun if you get evacuated at midnight out of your hotel or condo because you are staying within the coastal tsunami zone ? The property gets a gentle trade wind breeze in the late morning/afternoon, unlike properties closer to the ocean, which catch the full brunt of the daily winds & can make the day, quite uncomfortable. The glass doors lead to the sun deck & Jacuzzi , with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean to greet you. The sun deck is surrounded by, Hawaiian gas Tiki Torches , has a beautiful round glass table, seats 6, porch swing, & barbecue.
What makes this House unique
The unique benefits of this home abound you as you walk thru the front door, you are immediately greeted with the stunning panaramic view of the Pacific Ocean ahead, every room in this home has an ocean view, including the bathrooms. The entire home is constructed with a combination of naturally finished woods including, pine, douglas fir, spruce, oak and our favorite; The Maui Koa, which is only found in our home and one other on Maui. The bathrooms are beautifully appointed, with a combination of natural stones and marble. All bedrooms in the house have an ocean view and are appointed with very comfortable Cal King beds. The Master bedroom has its own bathroom, bedrooms 2&3 share their own bathroom. Our kitchen is built for Maui Koa wood and is very well appointed, it is suitable for any gourmet chef to use. A Kitchen this well appointed, is very rare to find in a vacation rental property. Our dining table seats 8 spaciously, but we have had 12 guests dine comfortable around it. Whether you prefer to sit & relax on the porch swing watching the sun slip away over the horizon of the Pacific Ocean, or like to be the gourmet cook in the kitchen, and watch the sun slip away over the horizon of the Pacific Ocean, this home is perfect for all tastes, and for the perfect for any Maui vacation.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Nice house but overrated
I wanted to be fair about this review as I was very disappointed in the whole experience. I waited a week upon my return before writing this so that I would be as fair as possible. Up front we had a billing dispute that was partially my fault. I booked without selecting number of guest. I didn't think it was an issue as listing says sleeps eight and contract says you pay extra for over six adults. I had six adults and a minor. We paid in full months in advance and were notified the day of check in we needed to pay substantially more or we couldn't check in. I was upset but that could have been resolved if I was as happy with the house as all the other reviews.
The house had many issues but also had a lot of good. The house was very hot and uncomfortable, the bedrooms had A/C but the master bedroom would only get cool late at night and the master bath never cooled down at all. We are from Phoenix and can handle some heat but this was bad. The main part of the house was very uncomfortable for our whole stay.
We had rats in the kitchen that would eat our dry storage food and poo and pee all over the kitchen counters, at first we thought it was mice but we saw several running on the deck at night. They weren't shy and they were rats. Our family loves decks which is the primary reason we got this house. It has a great deck with great views. However we also value our privacy. Stuart lives on property and was outside below our deck almost always during our stay whether it was 8 at night or 7 in the morning Stuart was within earshot always. Perhaps this would not bother some but the constant nature of it bothered us. We had issues with fridge not keeping proper temperature that caused some of our food to spoil. Stuart said it was bad Costco steaks, installed a thermometer the next day that in his mind proved the fridge was fine. He clearly fixed something but didn't acknowledge the fix just said the fridge is fine as it flooded water all over the floor. We had to keep a towel under it to control the flood. I could go on but I should say some nice things as there were a lot of nice things and my word count is approaching.
Most comfortable beds ever. Beautiful deck with amazing views. Well equipped kitchen. Snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas which was really nice touch.
This is a nice property but I am not sure how it got such amazing reviews as it has a ton of issues but again it is a nice property.
Aloha Ron, we are so sorry you had such a “miserable “ vacation at our property and you feel compelled to write such a review. ? To address your issues: As our website clearly states, our nightly rate is based upon 6 person occupancy, you chose to book the property for one person occupancy, when questioned about it, you came clean and told us you had 8 in your party, thus we charged you for the additional 2 guests. It would have been less stress on your behalf if you had been honest in the beginning and stated you had 8 adults and not tried to “get something for nothing” .? During your stay You tried to blame our refrigerator for your spoiled steaks, (which were most likely left in your car to get warm after purchase?) but when we supplied refrigerator thermometers for the freezer and fridge the next day, the fridge was proven to you to be at 32 degrees ? As far as vermin in the house ?? No one has ever mentioned a problem, including you, if you had genuinely thought there were vermin in the house during your stay, wouldn't it have been wise to say something.?? To address that; We have monthly pest control service, like most home owners do in Maui, and if there happens to be any issue between monthly visits, one call to them always solves a problem. Lastly owners being on property: Vacation rental permits in Maui are not easy to acquire and “All vacation rental permits” given to homeowners by the State Of Hawaii & the County Of Maui require homeowners to be on property while guests are staying, if anyone tells you different, they are not telling the truth. As you are aware, we have 2 properties on Maui and live between this one and the second one, as you experienced, we were often, not on this property during your stay because we were at our 2nd home. To summarize: You arrived at our property disgruntled with a“bad taste in your mouth” because you got caught in a lie about the quantity of people you planned to stay and had to pay a little bit extra. As suggested at the time; Next time be truthful about your intentions prior to arrival, no matter which property you book on this type of website it may save you a lot of personal grief later on ? We wish you our warmest Aloha & best wishes, Stewart & Andrea
Great place to stay
We had a large family vacation in Maui and totally enjoyed the home. There were so many places nice places to gather and relax. The home was very quite and the view was fantastic. We had high expectations from the pictures but it was even nicer in person. The owners was very nice and proud of their home, as they should be.
We had a group of 5 and there was more than enough room for everyone. Stewart was very quick to respond every text message I sent him. The house was very clean and well kept. The views were amazing, we loved sitting in the hot tub and watching the sunset. The house is well equipped with just about everything you’d need.
Aloha Kyle. We are so glad you enjoyed your Maui vacation and especially our beautiful home. Sitting in the hot tub and soaking up the views & sunset are one of our favorite things to do too when our property is not booked :=). Thank you for leaving our home clean & tidy when you checked out, and thank you for choosing to stay with us, we sincerely appreciate it. Aloha & best wishes, Stewart & Andrea - Owners
This house is totally amazing. Clean, lots of room, comfortable beds, amazing view. This place is spot on I have stayed in a lot of houses through AirBnB and Home Away and this place takes the cake by far you will never get a better place for the price. Already rebooked for 13 nights in July - August.
Mahalo for the great stay
Aloha John, we are so glad you enjoyed your Maui vacation at our beautiful home, and extremely appreciative you have re booked for 13 nights in July/Aug, we look forward to hosting you & your family at that time. Until we meet again, we send to you our warmest Aloha. Regards Stewart & Andrea
ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS !!
We were absolutely stunned when we walked through the front door of this house, this home is immaculate, and the views of the ocean are stunning!! The home is approximately 3,000sf on one level comprising of a huge living room/kitchen/dining area combined, 3 very large bedrooms and 2 large bathrooms, all gorgeously decorated and clean. The beds are to “die” for, they are SOOO comfortable !!! All of this is surrounded by a massive outside patio/deck with seating for about 15 people, sun chairs, gazebo, and an AWESOME jacuzzi/spa. Stewart & Andrea have definitely done a fantastic job putting this home together and maintaining it. We LOVE at this place and cannot wait to return. THANK YOU Stewart & Andrea for allowing us into your beautiful home, we loved our stay and our time in Maui !
A gem it is!
Beautiful home amazing views and the hosts are very attentive when needed. Stewart was always available if we needed something or just had a question. The beds are very comfortable as is the home. You just felt relaxed. By far the views are the best way to enjoy the evening after a day out. It’s in a quiet residential area not far from stores or the beach. My husband and I shared it with 5 other family members and it was a perfect size. We will definitely be back! My family enjoyed it so much! Thank you Stewart and Andrea
We are so glad you enjoyed your Maui vacation and especially your time spent in our beautiful home, we sincerely appreciate your kind comments about your stay and leaving our home neat and tidy when you left, you are welcome back anytime, regards, Stewart & Andrea
