We booked to stay in Aloha Lani inn for three days during our stay in Maui and we had a wonderful time there. It was quite unfortunate that the host was taken ill and she ended up in the hospital before we arrived there. However even while in surgery she managed to get her mother there so she doesn't have...

The Aloha Lani Inn is an excellent accommodation and its owner, Melinda, is a very cheerful and helpful host. The room is tiny but precious, the house has a beautiful garden and is conveniently located. Great choice!

Booking a room in someone's home for 15 days can feel like a bit of a gamble but within minutes of our arrival Melinda made us feel at home and we knew we had made a good choice. Being keen whale watchers Melinda's home is perfectly situated close to Lahaina Harbour meaning we didn't have to worry about parking and... More

Melinda is very accommodating and the house has everything you need. You feel safe and comfortable with close access to everything. I was travelling solo which made it nice to have someone to talk to and get insider info from. Great energy and also has a beautiful backyard.

Outstanding! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Melinda is wonderful. She made me feel right at home. The house is beautiful, with access to TV, radio, kitchen, living room, patio, and your own very, very clean bathroom and awesome shower/bath. You get a parking spot, too, in the driveway. But most of all you get Melinda's hospitality. She took the time... More

We felt like life-long friends with Melinda. I suppose we have to share her and her cozy, lush backyard with other guests, but I wish we could be the only people allowed there! Loved the water pressure in the shower. We swapped fruit, drinks and heart-to-hearts each glorious night, before or after doing our thing all over the island. Miss... More

We had a wonderful stay with Melinda and the Animals that inhabit the house and yard. Such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Melinda is a great hostess and had or could arrange anything we needed. Yes the bedroom is small, but we had access to her whole house which was very comfortable and warm. It is in a great location.... More

What a different yet charming experience I had on my recent trip to Maui more specially at Melinda's place in Lahaina. I had a very pleasant time there, almost two weeks, very well located and very well accommodated. Melinda will offer just about anything you need and she has a great knowledge of the Island and especially all of the... More

On a positive note: the bedroom and bathroom were clean and shampoo, towels, and soap were provided. The AC in the bedroom functioned quietly. Upon our obvious initial disappointment, the housesitter talked to Melinda (in the mainland) and offered to find us another place with a full refund. Ater some difficulty finding suitable lodging, we decided to stay at Aloha... More

Aloha Unusual Guest! Just wanted to respond to this review since I was away on vacation most of the time of this guests stay; it is not accurate and by far the worst review ever. My property does not deserve this rating, please see all other reviews for reference. Evidently my house sitter definitely must have lower standard of cleanliness... More
