My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay here. The rooms are lovely and spacious, the breakfasts are great, and Eva is a wonderful host. We definitely plan to return! This is an excellent choice for any traveler who enjoys staying at a bed and breakfast!

What A Wonderful World was an amazing, relaxing place to spend a few days in Maui! We felt really welcome, and everything was neat, clean and well appointed with many places to sit and relax after a day of exploring. A lovely choice-rich breakfast was served on the covered lanai with the ocean in view. A rare bed and breakfast...

We stayed here for a week in February and fell in love with this place! We had a beautiful room-the Palm Room-which is away from the other rooms so it is very private. It is beautifully furnished including sunscreen, beach towels, beach chairs, etc... The breakfast was excellent. There is a view of the ocean and mountains while eating fresh...

I felt sad when I had to leave the Papaya room. Convenient location and excellent staff. I had problems with my rental car and Eva went out of her way to help. MY room came with a semi private outdoor sitting are and the breakfast area provides stunning views. If I get the chance to return, this will be the...

We had a wonderfull and relaxing stay for 5 nights. Eva was a very gracious host, helpfull with any questions about Maui or Hawaii in general. We enjoyed sitting on the large outside dining area and talking with the other guest while enjoying breakfast and looking out over the ocean and mountain views. We would recommend it to anyone who...

Our room was great! Not only did we have a room, but also a living room, kitchen area, and nice sized bathroom. It was very clean and full of all supplies we might need. Eva was such a great host. Anytime I had a question about Maui or needed something extra (like tweezers for getting a splinter out), she went...

A very warm welcome, very judicious advice for walks and discoveries. An excelent breakfast on the patio. Very good location for all our activities. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Maui and will recommend to our friends!
