What Our Guests Say

I can't get over how beautiful this property is! It has all of the uniqueness and details of an older home, but the renovations made it so modern and beautiful. Every detail of the home is well thought out. Check-in was very easy. I just followed the signs to my room and used the provided key code. I know other people were staying on the property, but I never saw anyone and felt like I had a lot of privacy and space for myself. I highly recommend this property and would 100% choose to stay here again.

Lovely! From the moment you enter the grounds to park until you get into your room, this property is filled with surprise and delight. The garden is lush and filled with fascinating tropical specimens - fruiting and fragrant. The lanai is a relaxing place to take in the morning sun and birds, despite local traffic to school and work. The decor everywhere is well thought out and ties in to Maui’s culture and vegetation at every turn. The bed and overhead fan offered a peaceful and deep night’s sleep and the shower/bathroom is relaxing and easy. There were beach towels readily available. I felt right at home.

- By Gwen

If I could give more stars I would. I debated writing a review so we could keep this gem for ourselves. The room was nicer and more comfortable than most 5 stars I’ve stayed in. Quiet. Best sleep I’ve had in a long time! Pristine in terms of cleanliness with all the essential toiletries. The location is central to seeing many areas on Maui. The historic residence is beautiful, the garden is lovely, and there are many wonderful places to sit in the shared spaces. We will definitely be coming back to stay here.
