This was my second stay at Maui Ocean Breezes in the past year. I brought my 16yo son with me this time for a week long trip. (yes, there is internet service!) It was every bit as tranquil and delightful as the first. KC is a warm and friendly host, the 2 bdrm private, detached cottage was fully furnished, comfortable, and tidy, and the property as luscious as ever with vibrant tropical vegetation, lovely morning songbirds, and tropical breezes which create natural air conditioning. Each room in the cottage has a ceiling fan which helps keep air circulating. A dip in the refreshing pool often capped our days of snorkeling, swimming, and exploring the island. A little laundry shed contains snorkel gear, boogie boards, and foam noodles for guest use, and the cottage is stocked with extra towels. Maui Ocean Breezes is centrally located making island exploration easy. We went to Hana and back in a day with time left and made multiple trips to the Makena area for excellent snorkeling. Nearby Paia has great food. No need for shoes here! My favorite part of each day was strolling about the grounds early in the morning in my bare feet with a cup of coffee in my hand, planning the day. People I encountered on my walks in the neighborhood were always friendly. I highly recommend the whispering bamboo cottage for a couple, small family, or a person looking for some quiet, meditative time in a beautiful area.
