We wanted to stay close to a party we were attending in upcountry Maui and found this gem of a vacation! We've never tried a B&B before and this was a fantastic choice for our situation.
The price was right and we read other reviews for this place and was not disappointed. We booked the Aloha suite because we wanted to have our own bathroom. The room was big enough for us and it really felt like home. It was fully furnished just like your own house from extra towels to the fully equipt and stocked gourmet kitchen.
We checked out the backyard and it was secluded, quiet and very well maintained. At the time we were there, there was just 1 other couple, but saw them just once because we had stuff to do and so did they. Our room came with breakfast and the owners left out breakfast items: 2 kinds of bread, butter and jelly, 2 types of cereal w/milk, 2 kinds of juices,coffee w/cream and sugar,tea,cocoa,3 types of fresh fruit,yogurt, It was a nice spread considering it is included with the room. We liked that we felt at home, we hung out in the parlor and they had direct tv. The weather at the time felt cool and airy with occassional sprinkles-well it is upcountry after all. The weather up there is so much more cooler and wet anyway.
I highly recommend booking this place because it is just wonderful being in a place that is so relaxed, quiet, secluded and homey. It is well maintained inside and out. The price is great as well. We definitely will be back to stay whenever we visit Maui.
