Amazing massage by Jean Baptiste in an outdoor setting overlooking the ocean at sunset. Use of fragrant oils, hot lava stones, and a firm and personal approach was great. Fantastic!

My wife and I chose an 85-minute hot stone couples massage. Fabulous decision on our part. Renee and Kristen took excellent care of us, working out all of the kinks caused by stress and airplane travel. At around $250, we felt like this was an investment, but were delighted with the results. This was my first hot stone massage, and it was the ultimate in relaxation. The residential setting was generally tranquil, with a lovely breeze, but you will hear traffic noise occasionally. It was easy to find using our GPS, and Renee was waiting for us at the curb.

We highly recommend them and will definitely return on our next trip to Maui.

We just returned from an 85 minute couples massage... Pure bliss... Like the posts before stated, it's in a quiet residential area away from all the hype of the spas which is why we chose it...

We are going home Saturday but pretty sure we'll squeeze another massage in!

If you're looking for a great massage do yourself a favour and book in here!

first sign of a bad massage therapist, because I am one....too much oil, they can not properly massage your muscles if you are a slippery mess!!! Did not do a medical history...next bad sign. therapist started to work on me and then 10 minutes in asked me to get up and move to a different table and different "massage therapist" . who does this? they are set up on someone's deck with just curtain between you and god knows who else where you can hear everything. total waste of time and money

Based on other reviews, my husband and I expected more. We skipped the resort spas thinking maybe they were overpriced, if I could do it again I would've gone to one of them. Our experience was similar to the other poor and terrible reviews. So odd, considering the high ratings here! Maybe it depends on the therapist?...

While the ladies were kind and sweet, our massages were less than satisfactory. I feel bad for not saying anything but I wasn't sure exactly what to say to summarize our dissatisfaction. And after comparing our experiences, I decided to leave a review as I think the overwhelmingly positive reviews for this place are misleading.

My husband's massage was more like a rub and he asked for more pressure 3 times and each time the therapist increased pressure briefly then went back to the rubbing with minimal pressure. Additionally there was a roof leak which the therapist mentioned before he got on the massage bed. He thought it must be minimal since they didn't move the bed or suggest the other room but this leak continued to drip water on him throughout the massage.

I am 6 months pregnant and let them know a week ahead of time when I booked. My therapist, who was really very nice, seemed a little thrown off by the pregnancy massage when suggesting how I should lay etc. I thought maybe she was just being extra thoughtful and considerate (and maybe she was) so I let it go. Once my massage started the pressure was inconsistent and I wasn't sure what to say when she asked how the pressure was, it was fine at the time so I hoped it'd stay that way. It didn't though, it would either be fine, kind of jiggling me, or a rub down. The therapist seemed like maybe she was running out things to do with me and re-did all the things she started with at the end making me wish I'd done the 60 minutes. If this had to do with my pregnancy, I wish they had suggested a shorter massage when I booked.

Lastly, when we arrived the toilet didn't flush and was already full with TP so I had to go out and ask what was up before using it. They said their toilet was in repair and they needed to add water before I went so it could flush. We only arrived 5 min early and I would've had no idea if they had done that prior to our arrival. I know the resort spas are much more costly but I still expected more since we spent $300. There's isn't actually an ocean view which We got over but other people should know if that's important. 2 stars for my therapist and her kindness and for offering us chocolates at the end of the massage. Hopes this helps someone else make a better investment and/or inspire some changes for the establishment.

This place is NOT as described. My husband and I wanted a couples massage. Based on the trip advisor reviews and where it showed up in Google searches we choose this place.

Their website did NOT say it was at a private residence which is very misleading. It was also misleading in that their website said there was an ocean view. There was NOT an ocean view. It was also outside on their porch, not a private Lanai as their website states. There is nothing private about this place.

My husband wanted to cancel as soon as we pulled into the small carport but we would have lost the money since it was less than 24 hour cancellation. The massage took place on the porch (not a Lanai as the website states) and we heard neighbors getting in and out of their cars throughout the ENTIRE massage along with construction work on the street.

We also paid extra for the hot stone massage. My husbands tberapist used the stones in his massage but my therapist used them for approximately 10 strokes and then left them in my hands. Very disappointing.

The bathroom sink and counter needed cleaning. They had curtains for "privacy" but they did not cover the entire viewing area - had anyone walked up onto the porch, we would have been seen. While i was in the bathroom undressing, they told my husband to just undress on the other side of the room, that they would turn around and not look. (They had given us sarongs to cover up with to walk to the porch)

We paid $300 for this massage with taxes NOT including tip. The money could have been better spent at a resort. This place is the one and only regret of our trip unfortunately. Second regret was that I didn't take the time to read all the reviews on tripadvisor. (Many of the positive reviews on here have to be false as there is no way this place is voted one of the best on Maui.)

I will be notifying the Hawaii chamber of commerce and the Better Business Bureau about this company's misleading website description.

A friend and I decided to get massages and checked out yelp for suggestions. This place was rated 4 1/2 out of 5 stars, so our expectations were high. This was not at all what we expected. We were told to park under the canopy, even if there was another car there. We did, but ended up driving around in our car for 15 minutes playing musical cars with other guests and massage therapists. Good thing we were early! (We witnessed this with two other people too) This place is completely residential and the "lanai" is a screened in back porch. We sat down and waited for our appointment and a couple that was walking out said we were in for a real treat, so we tried to overlook the fact that there's zero privacy and you can hear everyone walking around. Maybe we drew the short straws, but our experience was no treat. A couple minutes into the massage, I asked for her to use more pressure. This lasted maybe five minutes until I had to make the same request. I also could've done without he Gardener with the leaf blower mid massage.Essentially, after comparing stories, we both agreed that this was nothing more then a full body RUB; not a MASSAGE. It's a bunch of older hippy-type women who may not even have actual certifications. On a positive note, the hot stones were a nice touch and all of the women were quite friendly. However, at the end of the day, our experience was unprofessional and chaotic.

I'm so glad I did my Tripadvisor Homework for this massage. After looking around for the Perfect Christmas Present for my husband... I found it Here!
It's not your sterile, dark room, resort style massage. This is an great outdoor, funky porch, with the tropical birds singing in the background.
The stone massage was phenomenal. My husband and I enjoyed the 85 minute (I wouldn't do a minute less) couples massage with Lynda and Kristen.
What a GREAT, The Best, The Only Way to start a Vacation!
Stress gone... neckache GONE! and the mobility regained is unbelievable!
The HOT Stones are a MUST HAVE and a Maui Trip DO NOT MISS this

Based on the reviews this did not turn out to be what I'd expected. It's in a very small house. There's a massage table inside when you enter that takes up most of the room and then a couple of tables on a pretty narrow side porch. I was outside. The practitioner who worked on me was OK, but nothing great, I paid $145 for an 80 minute lomi lomi massage which isn't all that much cheaper than the hotel ones.

I booked a couples massage for my wife and I while on vacation in Maui. I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and mistakenly didn't read the negative reviews further down. This business is located in a residential neighborhood and the massage takes place on their home porch. We were VERY disappointed in the atmosphere and location of the business. The massage itself was a simple rub down. I've been receiving massage therapy for years and my wife owned a salon with massage therapists and this was not a quality massage. These are some very nice ladies that are doing the work but for what they charge save your money and go to one of the resorts and treat yourself.
