“Penny's really is Paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

I just spent 5 wonderful days at Penny's Inn Paradise. The Bed & Breakfast is charming and the location is ideal. My boyfriend and I stayed in the Ekahi and Elua rooms while here. Penny provides a full range of services from wonderful continental breakfasts, advice on tourist activities to putting together a beautiful picnic basket for a sunset picnic on Makena Beach (where Joe proposed to me :) Her warming personality goes above and beyond the typical B&B. She gives everything a personal touch, joining us for morning tea/breakfast to get to know us better, yet provides the comforts of privacy at the same time. You can come and go as you please. I will definitely be recommending Penny's to my friends and family! Mahalo Penny!

Room Tip: The Ekahi was very roomy with plenty of room for luggage and personal belongings. You could definite...

My husband and I have just spent 5 lovely days in Lahaina at Penny's Place - his first visit to Hawaii and my second (including my second stay at Penny's which should already tell you how much I like it). We stayed in the Ekahi room which was spacious, airy and gave us a view of the beach over the road. If you are someone who likes the feeling of staying in someone's home and getting a sense of the real lives of the people who live where you are visiting, then Penny's is the place for you. It attracts that kind of guest with whom you get to share the delicious fruit and pastry breakfast as well as travelling adventures - as well as getting Penny's tips on the best beaches, etc. etc. etc. We like to prepare some of our own meals, and the lanai is fully equipped with a refrigerator and microwave, utensils, plates, every condiment you could wish for, tea, coffee, etc - as well as comfy chairs, tables, etc. Penny has though of everything - I especially like the cupboard that seems to contain everything that one might have 'forgotten'. She also provides lots of beach towels and beach chairs for borrowing as well as insulated lunch boxes for packing a picnic. Penny is a gracious hostess. I hope she's still there when we visit again.

There is a Safeway at the Cannery Shopping Centre a few blocks away, as well as all sorts of other grocery shops further into Lahaina. Lahaina is a great place from which to visit South, Central and West Maui.
PS: two of our favourite restaurants are also walking distance away: Aloha Mixed Plate and Honu. And make sure you book to see Warren and Annabel's Magic Show - even if magic isn't your thing, this is a delighful evening and Warren is not only a skilled magician, he's a charismatic and funny entertainer who is enjoying himself so much, that all the audience does too. Seems like they sell out regularly, so booking before coming (which we did) is recommended

We stayed here for three days recently. The rooms were very clean and pleasantly decorated, each with a private bathroom. The bed was extremely comforatable, my wife and I slept better here than we do at home! Penny was a great host, but we were so busy touring, we hardly had the chance to enjoy the place - we left before sunrise each morning and couldn't take advantage of Penny's breakfast! Located at the end of Front St. in Lahaina, you are just a short walk from the beach, shops, restaurants, night life, etc. My wife and I have stayed in bed and breakfasts in the past, and this one was as good or better than any of them. Without question, if we ever return to Maui, Penny's Place would be our first choice.

My stay at Penny's Place was fantastic! The room was beautifully furnished, comfortable and clean. The location of the property is wonderful - at the quiet end of the main street of Lahaina. You are within walking distance of an ocean sunset view, shops, restaurants and one of the best Luaus you can find!
Penny was a great hostess - she was extremely helpful with planning my activities, as well as making some great suggestions with places to go and things to see.
The breakfast was delicious and filling.
I would be happy to recommend this accomodation and would definitely return without any hestitation!

We stayed at Penny's place for 7 days last January and we really loved it. Our room was nicely decorated and very clean. The breakfast was also really good, and Penny always gave us good information about the places to see and where were the best beaches. The location was also very convenient and we only had to cross the road to see the wonderfull sunset on the water and also a few turtles! We will be sure to return at Penny's Place on our next trip to Maui! Thank You!

Our stay at Penny's Place was so much more relaxing than the huge resort hotels. We were treated like family by Penny. Breakfast time was pleasant, yummy and informative. Each room is uniquely furnished and decorated. When we return to Maui we will choose Penny's Place Inn Paradise again. We love this place, Virgil and Lois

Room Tip: Love the outdoors? Small rooms are big enough!

Penny is a good hostess--she gave us a lot of useful and interesting information, and she is very kind. Breakfast was delicious. We slept better in the bed in our room than in ours at home! Penny's Place is in Lahaina, a very convenient location for shopping, food and beaches. We could see the ocean from the veranda--where we spent a lot of our time! We loved the little kitchen on the porch--very convenient. Thanks, Penny! Kathy and Phil
