Eva is a wonderful person, friendly and hospitable. If you stay here, you will make you feel at home. The property is beautiful and welcoming. It exudes just the heat of Hawaii. There are plenty of things that gets you, it's all beautifully.

This B&B is really wonderful (not just the name). Eva and Jim are great hosts and have a lot of good tips for visiting Maui! You can start with a great breakfast and then head to the beach or sights. Kihei nightlife is just 5 min away by car and if you are looking for a quite night just grill... More

Had a really fantastic stay here with my husband! I booked the Mango room, which was a perfect vacation apartment with a full kitchen. I really love having a full kitchen in Maui because a) I love cooking and exploring local produce and b) going out can get expensive and the food scene here isn't stellar. The apartment was well-thought... More

The view from the lanai was outstanding. The breakfast was very nice. We had fresh fruit, cereal, fresh coffee. Our room was somewhat dark and a little dated. Found ants in the kitchen. Liked the bed was wonderful. It was a quiet residential area except for the neighbor across the street who played loud music during the day.

Aloha, We always welcome and are very appreciative of our guests reviews and comments. Jim and I sincerely apologize for the ant visitors while you were our guests. Due to our constant warm temperatures and a very wet winter this year in Maui, insects are a problem all year long. We spray on a regular basis but we are also... More

Me and my wife went to Maui for travel, and we chose to stay in what a wonderful world. The three nights' stay are satisfying and we also enjoyed the free breakfast very much. The owner is warm hearted, and knowledgeble about local places. I will reommend people to stay here.

We stayed 5 nights and felt like family, Eva was always very helpful with advice about the various places we wanted to visit. She directed us to a wonderful luau which we so enjoyed. Loved having a Plumeria Tree in our patio. Thank you Eva and Jim for a wonderful stay. Lois H

On our recent visit to Maui we stayed here for just one night. We were very impressed with how accommodating Eva and Jim were to us. It was just like staying at a friend's home overnight. The rooms were lovely, clean and had everything (and more)you would need. We were able to use the computer to print boarding passes and... More

What a wonderful little haven! It was wonderful to get away from the resorts and have a local experience. Eva was a fabulous hostess and the accommodations were wonderful. We really enjoyed all of the beach gear that we were provided. The washer and dryer were a nice touch and plenty of beachtowels! Highly recommend.

We had 4 nights to spend on Maui and this bed and breakfast was recommended to us. We decided to book it as it is far cheaper than the hotel suggested by our travel agent and located at the beautiful south beaches. With only 4 or 5 rooms you feel like living at a friend's - especially because the host... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 days during our honeymoon in June. We had a lovely room with delightful breakfast. We spent most of our time out and about, but our room was cool and comfortable in the evenings. Located close to grocery store, restaurants, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here! Thank you!
