Pros: -It’s in Maui! -Near cute shops, fresh coffee, grocery stores, bus stops, and really in a central location to everywhere you could want to go. -Room was cute and the “public area” was also decorated very beautifully with pool area (understandably, due to Covid, aviary area closed and of course masks mandates were respected and followed). -They don’t advertise large rooms because they are simply not that. Our room didn’t even have a chair to sit on (had to sit on the floor or bed for EVERYTHING. -I’m a “first responder” so I understand and respect the measures taken here for guest and resident safety (but our flight arrived late and there was a bit of frustration with showing our negative Covid tests and Hawaii’s new pre-clearance procedures). Cons: -There is a microwave to use for heating up food, but microwaving practically every meal leaves a smell (Maureen left a comment on our ABB saying the bathroom smelt of strong smoke)—we don’t smoke, we literally had to microwave every meal and the only trash can is in the bathroom. -They commented on ABB that we are “dirty,” but the booking came with a $90 cleaning fee and the room does not take long to clean (it’s tiny and we are two people with a weeks worth of things and nowhere to put them). Not everyone makes their bed and organizes their stuff when on vacation, “Nancy.” We did not leave it dirty and that comment was unfair. We tried very hard to avoid getting sand in the room to the point where we left our shoes outside. -Dog barking and running around above us at all times (I love my furry friends at home, but felt this noteworthy). -Door between rooms so we literally heard everything the other guests said/did/etc. -Finally, and most importantly, we did not “feel” welcome. If you want to feel like you’re constantly being watched and judged while on vacation in Maui, this is your place. -Out of the blue, smoke alarms went off at 5AM (I guess one of the other rooms’ smoke alarms battery went out). They asked us if we smoke and of course we don’t, but that didn’t stop them from finding the odor of smoke in the room once we were gone (referring to above statement). CRAZY. Putting all of this together, comparing other experiences we’ve had with people and places in ABB and the like, I can’t give more than one star. Not recommend, but you get what you pay for. …
Old house with small rooms, kind of funky in an old-house sort of way. Very clean, with tons of beach chairs and coolers and towels to borrow for beach excursions. Beds were comfortable. Wifi worked great. Nice part of town. Easy self-check in and I was greeted with a plate of really superb banana blueberry mango bread.
What a wonderful quaint place to stay! My husband and I really enjoyed our time here. The owner was super kind and like a Maui elf with her surprise baked goods every other day. This place was very clean and well stocked with items you may need on a vacation. Mahalo Maureen!
The room was small but very cosy. Bed was very comfortable. Loved the attention to detail especially the little homemade tidbits, very scrumptious. Access to pool and patio was also a bonus. Highly recommend this.
Very nice accomodation, away from the tourist spots, but centrally located. You can visit all the highlights of Maui conveniently. After your tours you can relax in the saltwater pool. Maureen takes care of you if you have any questions, and she recommends excellent and affordable restaurants in the vicinity. Enjoy!
