My boyfriend and I just got back from staying 4 nights at Windward Garden B&B, and we adored the place. We didn't know what to expect as we turned off the Hana Hwy and onto the narrow, windy roads leading to the B&B. (The short drive through the jungle reminded us of driving to a B&B in Puerto Rico last year; we had a bad experience there). Once we pulled up and saw the house, we were so happy because we already knew we made the right decision when randomly choosing this place. Susan greeted us as we pulled into the driveway and gave us the full tour. The house is awesome, nicely decorated, and the property is beautiful! We had the house to ourselves the first night (since no one else was checking in until the next day), so she was able to show us the Ariel and August suites, which were each uniquely decorated.
We stayed in the Master Suite, which had a king-size bed, balcony, and private bathroom. I slept better than ever with the windows and balcony door open and cool breeze blowing through.
We met Chris the next morning when he and Susan served us breakfast. Breakfast was served on the expansive front porch with views of the garden and ocean in the distance. I have a very restrictive diet- I'm VEGAN and GLUTEN-FREE, and Susan and Chris were accommodating; always preparing a delicious breakfast for me. I could barely finish everything! Breakfast for me included: fresh fruit, orange juice with lilikoi, fried tofu with nutritional yeast, quinoa, and gf toast with a variety of jams to choose from. During breakfast each morning, we talked with Susan and Chris to find out the best beaches to go to and any local tips they had for us. They also directed us toward places to eat, and showed us the beach gear that we could take with us (beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, body boards, and coolers). It was also great to chat with the other guests at breakfast.
Overall, I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone who wants to visit Maui (whether couple or solo) and not stay in a typical resort setting. It was relaxing, beautiful, and had a positive energy flowing through. We wish we didn't have to leave!
