You can pay more but you can't buy better than Eva and Jim's Wonderful World. Seldom does a place live up to what I see and read on the internet - Wonderful World did! Extremely well organized for our arrival. Their place was just as beautiful as the pics. Most of all my three children (adults) and myself enjoyed sundowners... More

Great hospitality in this lovely bed and breakfast. We felt right at home in our room which had a private patio and our own entrance. The room was cozy and clean with just the right amount of breeze. Highly recommended!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at this B&B. The overall place was very nice and clean. It had a rustic feel and the view from the lanai was amazing. We stayed in the Pineapple Suite which has a separate bedroom, living area and small kitchen. We loved the breezes that flowed through the space. The breakfast was good... More

Had a great stay at this B&B. It was just the two of us (hubby and self) so we picked the smallest room as we had tons of activities to do in Maui. Great location that was close to everything. We went scuba diving in Kihei and also road trip to Hana. Everything in the room was clean and the... More

My wife and I spent 3 days and two nights here. It was a great room, and great experience overall. Eva and Jim were great hosts, and made this place a joy to stay at. We ended up staying here because they allowed our Australian Shepherd, and now this will be a first place we try and get every time... More

If you don't feel like to spend $$$ on those resorts, but still want to enjoy every bit of your stay in Maui, choose this lovely B&B and you won't regret! This family style B&B is conveniently located. It offers 4 different rooms; our upstairs Guava Suite is on the smaller side but feels cozy. Breakfast is fresh and tasty.... More

We spent four nights in this b&b and had a good time but the rooms and common areas needed to be cleaned better. This really spoils all the fun. The breakfast was average. The host was friendly. The location was excellent. The rooms reminded us of Provence, we liked them.

What a great place to stay! The hosts Eva and Jim are very friendly and always ready to share their information on trips and ideas. We also got the weather forecast every morning for the day ;) The view on their patio where breakfast is served is extraordinary... Can definitely recommend staying at their friendly home!

What a fantastic find!!! I am very particular about where I stay (senior single woman) and knew I made a good choice in choosing What a Wonderful World Bed & Breakfast (how appropriately named) upon arriving there. I immediately felt a sense of "coming home" and have been back a second time within the month. Eva is the Hostess Extraordinaire... More
