This was the perfect Hawaiian getaway. The B&B was nestled in almost a tree house of palm trees. The breezes through the palm trees and the birds made it seem like almost like you were both outside and in the comfort of your room. The breakfast room and palm tree and flowering plant surrounded back yard were both exquisitely beautiful.... More

Just returned from a weeks stay in Kihei. We have traveled to Kihei many times and this is by far the best rental we have encountered. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable ( both in temperature and furnishings). Eva is a great hostess. Loved the lanai, upstairs for breakfast and downstairs off our room for grilling.

Cant say enough about this place. We had an amazing time! Eva is terrific! She was so accommodating. At breakfast as we were inquiring about a restaurant she was on the computer checking reservations for us. She creates comfort and community among everyone. She gave us tips for beaches and other activities that were all a hit. Beautiful view from... More

We stayed in the Papaya suite. It was very roomy. The sleeping area can be closed off by sliding doors for added privacy. The unit comes with a kitchen area and there is easy access to the unit from the car. One of our favorite times was sitting up on the large lanai available to all the guests, having a... More

We stayed in the lower condo area with a living area with kitchen and bedroom. First the negatives; the couch is very uncomfortable but the setup with large TV, great windows, kitchen outweigh that. Next, the shower is very small with no light but the bedroom and the entire room is laid out well and that made up for the... More

I recently stayed in the Guava suite. Eva, the owner is a delight, the place is beautiful, and a short drive to the beach and restaurants. Whatever you need, Eva will help you with. She has two darling Cavalier King Charles dogs, one, Darby is really shy. The lanai where breakfast is served is open and airy. It is a... More

This is the place to stay. All of the five star reviews about this B&B are true. We forgot all about the stresses of real life and were treated with kindness and generosity. I think the rooms are significantly better than they seem in the website photos. My partner is a clean freak and always has some criticism of the... More

We stayed here in December; loved it and we're already excited to head back this March! Eva is absolutely wonderful...the type of person that you feel like you've known her for years! She has the remarkable ability to make you feel right at home! Her place is lovely...we actually stayed in two different suits (we even rearranged our trip to... More

The photos on their website are true to the property. Our room, the Guava Suite, was exactly what I expected and what we needed, we were always comfortable. What the website doesn't show on is what a WONDERFUL host EVA is! We loved her bubbly personality and she was so helpful with any question we had about the island sites,... More
