I stayed at Wailuku Guesthouse with my elderly mother on a trip to Maui to visit her childhood friends now living on the island. Maureen is a kind and efficient host, who answered our questions and provided special touches like fresh flowers and home baked sweet bread in our room that made us feel at home. I also rented Maureen’s car for our weeklong stay. So convenient to have the car right onsite! We stayed in a ground floor room because my mother uses a walker and although there was a step in the room, it was not a problem. We both loved the old building that is impeccably maintained and sustainably operated. And cleanliness is definitely a standard here. The location is perfect to head out in any direction to explore the island. The neighborhood felt safe and has several great restaurants. I enjoyed swimming in the beautiful saltwater pool, and looking at the amazing flowers in the yard there. It made my trip restful, which is important when traveling with an elderly parent.

We have just returned to California, following our wonderful stay at the Wailuku Guesthouse. And yes, the rooms are small, but everything we needed was there. Other than small, I would also use the words "cozy", "warm", "welcoming" and full of the true aloha spirit. In fact, after a few days we even started calling it "home", imagining how it would've been so awesome to find a tiny studio apartment like this when we were starting out in life. We enjoyed it as a bit of nostalgia, and appreciated all the little touches that made it more personal than your typical huge, cold, expensive!, fancy-shmancy corporate hotel room. But to each their own.

Ms. Maureen is a gracious host. She made a point to meet us personally and chat awhile, even though she is extremely busy keeping up with maintenance and duties to keep the rooms and grounds sparkling clean. The landscaping and pool are amazingly beautiful. We felt safe and welcome the whole time we were there, and can't wait to return next year.

The people in Wailuku town were also very friendly, and businesses open despite pressures of the mask & vax requirements. Maui residents are resilient and care about their community.

If you want a taste of the "real Maui", and enjoy local flavor, I would highly recommend Wailuku Guesthouses.

To the bitter, negative reviewers, I would say, read the cancellation policies as I did, BEFORE you reply "I agree." There is nothing hidden in fine print, it is all there. It's very understandable how they have only a few rooms and are a small operation, so it makes sense to have a 30 day cancellation policy that hello, you AGREED to, so please don't try to say you were ripped off.

Hey Mahalo. For getting us. Small business. Exactly why we have that policy. We are affordable as well. You can hardly find a room on Maui less than $300-$400 for 2 people. I’m glad you enjoyed this little piece of Maui we created 22 yrs ago. Share your memories with your friends we will love to meet them too. Mahalo Nui Loa

Wailuku is a great place to stay if you are looking to be away from the resorts and tourist hotels and stay in a lovely small town. Wailuku is a short drive from the airport, but a great base to explore the Road to Hana, Haleakala and tourist activities in the South. Wailuku Guest House is in a very safe neighborhood- it is right next to a school, gym, and sports fields. It is a 5 minute walk to the bank, coffee shops, restaurants, and a theater. It is close to Iao Valley and Maui Arts & Cultural Center. I stayed in the 2 bedroom guesthouse, which was perfect for a week long stay with a full kitchen, livingroom and dining area. It was really nice having the bedroom window looking out to the pool and there was always a nice breeze. The pool area is lovely and the grounds are lush and well cared for- a great place to relax. Information on arrival and check in by the host made everything easy!

The Garden Ohana was cozy, comfy and made us feel right at home. There were fresh flowers from the garden waiting for us on the kitchen table when we arrived and were warmly greeted by one of the owners, Maureen.
We also rented Maureen's car, and doing so really helped make our vacation convenient and relatively stress free.
The pool is amazing, we had breakfast next to it almost every morning and swam in it many times. A refreshing island breeze blew through the house, there is a gorgeous view of the Iao Valley from poolside, dragonflies dart in and out of the back yard all day long.

I have stayed many times at the Wailuku Guesthouse and each time is another wonderful experience. It really does feel like a home away from home now. The hosts are wonderful, the other guests have always been great to meet, and the housekeeping staff (Kimberly and Haukea) keep things in tip top shape. You can't beat the pool and the best parts of Wailuku town are just a few blocks away. And it's a short drive to several nearby beaches. This is still one of my favorite places to stay when visiting Maui.

We stayed in the Wasabi Suite and truly enjoyed our stay. The Wailuku Guesthouse is centrally located making it easy to get anywhere on Maui. Maureen is an excellent host, who is always available when we need information or assistance. The room is clean and comfortable. Loved the pool and BBQ in the evening.

The house was originally owned by a military officer in WWII. It looks like it has been kept up pretty well. (I restore old houses). The rooms are situated up a narrow set of stairs entering from the back corner of the house. If you are unsteady on stairs, take your time. You have to go up three stairs to open the screen door. It's all they can do with the space available, so it's good. Just different. Up the stairs you enter into short hallway with three rooms. The door handles should probably be upgraded or improved to provide a less rattling closure. But they work and the locks are good. The room (plantation) has a great king bed, and the mattress is wonderful. The bathroom is nicely updated. Though I don't care for the cobble stone floor. The backyard pool and covered patio area are very secluded and nice, given you are across the street from a school. We heard some basketball playing after dark, but that was actually very nice - with a nice Local feel to the place. In old part of town. Parking was good. I did not like it that it appears we're under some sort of covid protocol where we didn't even meet our hosts. The "contactless" process is ridiculous. Annoying and unnecessary. We will stay here again. Love the old house.

Aloha Sometimes guests are gone, sleeping or arrive very late. I always make it a point to see my guests. Sometimes it just doesn’t happen. I’m glad though you enjoyed the stay. As for contactless self checkin , we have Ben doing that for more than 20 Yrs. Not a covid thing. It just makes it convenient for all. I may be at Costco when you arrive or even sleeping when guests arrive late. It works. Mahalo again, Maureen

I DO NOT recommend staying in the hotel. You would get fully charged even you had to cancel. And the owner has the worst hospitality servers EVER. She was very nice when we made a reservation, but she sent a message and threatening us when we canceled! Please be aware and don't let this owner to ruining your entire trip.

Stayed in the Wasabi suite, was a great room but the location is a perfect jumping off point for our daily excursions around Maui, it's very convenient to pretty much everything. The real hidden gem of the Guesthouse was a binder containing suggestions for local restaurants and beaches that have all been nothing short of amazing. You won't find a better place to stay for an "a la carte" Maui Vacation.

Pros:
The Room was clean
Easy checkin
Close to the airport and centrally located
The pool was nice and the bbq Area
Fresh banana.
Easy communication with the owner.
Cons:
If you like us don't like a soft bed you will not sleep the whole trip. The bed is so so soft and little old.
You can hear everything the other people saying and doing in next room :(
I understand that you need to have camera to watch the house but there are so many of them we felt we been watched.
We are hiker, we like to come back and chill watch TV, there was only 4 channels on TV so we went and got Ruko wish we knew we would brought one from home.
Over all i think it was average

Aloha Noora Thanks for staying with us. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. We have 5 beds with different comfort levels. Want a really firm bed take the Mill room. The outdoor cameras are necessary for our protection as well as guests. We have a pool that needs monitoring and sidewalks and entryways that all need monitoring. People are always saying oh by the way I fell on your property and I’d like compensation. Well so far not a single said injury went anywhere as our cameras showed otherwise. That’s how we protect our business from false claims. Hope you understand. Mahalo The Wailuku Guesthouse
