My daughter just moved to Maui and we wanted to explore Kihei. At the last minute, I booked a night at What a Wonderful World Bed and Breakfast. This place is really special and I wish we could have stayed longer. The room was beautiful and breakfast was a real treat. Eva, the owner and host, is so nice and... More

I stayed in the Pineapple Suite, and my only regret was that I couldn't stay longer! The room was spacious, comfortable and had every little amenity I could think of. The owner, Eva, was exceptionally warm and friendly- within 30 seconds of meeting her she felt like an old friend- and was super helpful to boot. I'm literally planning my... More

We stayed for 5 days in the Mango Suite and had a wonderful time. Eva is a great host, sitting with the guests each morning and discussing what to do that day and giving tips (definitely worth heeding). The breakfasts are continental and great for beginning a day on Maui. We had a fully equipped kitchen too, but honestly, we... More

We had a great time staying in this lovely B&B. We stayed for two nights in the Pineapple Suite and enjoyed every second of it. We would have loved to stay for longer but unfortunately all rooms were booked. Eva couldn't have been a better host and her tips for exploring the island were excellent. The breakfast on the terrace... More

We had a lovely time at What a Wonderful World. The suite was great, with kitchen equipment so we could cook dinner if we didn't want to eat out. Eva was a wonderful host and provided everything we needed for breakfast, beach trips, and plenty of advice for activities on the island. I would definitely recommend and stay again!

This lovely bed and breakfast run by the higher live forms of Jim and Eva is a truly magical experience. Eva, who will always be helpful but never intrusive, puts together a smashing breakfast on the veranda each and every morning for guests to enjoy. Also, it should be pointed out that this bed and breakfast is a terrific value.

My husband and I had a delightful 3 week stay at What a Wonderful World B&B. After much research we booked the Guava suite and found it to be a perfect fit. Hosts Eva and Jim have created a 'home away from home' ambience that was evident throughout our entire vacation. Any questions asked from where to eat a meal... More

We truly enjoyed our stay here. Eva and Jim were great hosts. They made us feel comfortable. We were allowed early check in which gave us the opportunity to get rid of our bags while we explored Kihei for the day and evening. The afternoon after we checked out, we were shopping in Lahaina and I received a call from... More

My wife and I had an amazing stay with hosts Eva & Jim at the What a Wonderful World B & B. So friendly, private yet inviting, accommodating, very comfortable bed, local knowledge & recommendations were perfect. While your not directly on a beach the price point makes it so worth while. You won't be disappointed
