“Nothing Special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2006

The Maui Guest House is like staying in a average house. I could have done that at home! There is nothing extraordinary. There is a hot tub in your room and flat screen but the pool is tiny and so are the bathrooms. When I go to Hawaii I want to have views of the ocean or be on the ocean. Spend the extra money to stay on the water, you'll be glad you did.

I just got back from a 2 week stay on Maui and what an experience! Traveling with my two sons (ages 14 and 22), our first week was spent in the Kihei/Wailea area and our second week spent in the Lahaina/Kaanapali area. While we enjoyed the beaches and the outdoor activities in both locations tremendously, we just could not get over the difference we felt between the B&Bs. At our first place, we were made to feel as if we had to "walk on tip toe" in someone else's home. Not at the Guest House! We felt as if it was OUR home. From the get go, we were greeted with warm smiles, refreshing drinks, and the mini tour of the home let us know that we had availability to just about everything. The kicker was when we found out that our host Jim gave a FREE pool class for those that wanted to try scuba. Since my older son is already a certified diver this was a great opportunity to have his brother join him. The kids had a blast! They ended up doing a total of 3 different dives with "Scuba Jim." It was a life changing experience for them, something that cannot be described, but was certainly seen on their excited faces as they would return from each dive adventure. For once their age difference didn't matter. I was so proud of them! I cannot thank Jim enough for the attention he gave my boys! I watched two brothers become friends and dive buddies!
As for me, (a non diver due to ear problems), I actually got caught up on much needed R&R. There is such a peace about the Guest House, it truly felt as if we were staying with family. Everything was spotlessly clean and organized. I guess the best review would be to let you know that we have already planned our return trip, and yes, we will be staying our entire time at the Guest House next year.

  • Liked — Very clean and felt as if we were with family.
  • Disliked — Nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't hesitate to ask for anything.

Over the past 4 years, not only have we stayed at the GuestHouse, but we trained there as well! It was a great place for us, our family, and our friends to vacation from cold Canada, but it was an even a more remarkable opportunity for us to learn the "ins and outs" of running a bed and breakfast. We can't say enough about how wonderful Maui is, and being at The Guest House, with everything they have to offer, made it that more special. For those not only looking for a short vacation, but perhaps a change in lifestyle, give Tanna a call!

  • Liked — All the perks! This house is loaded with extras . . . and the GREAT hospitality!
  • Disliked — We couldn't stay long enough!
  • Tips/Secrets — Book ahead! This place fills up far too fast!
