I chose this B&B based on the pictures, the moderate price, and the availability of a king size bed. (Also, the hosts responded quickly to my inquiry... a plus! I like good communication!) The bed was great, but that was the best part. We were assured that the wall unit a/c would cool the room fast. Um, if you call 2 hours fast. We were HOT for a long time when we came 'home' every evening. Some evenings it was very uncomfortable!
The bathroom is tiny, the shower is small but adequate.
The kitchenette has a microwave and a little fridge, a few dishes that you have to wash in the bathroom sink or outside in their dirty outdoor kitchen area, some utensils, towels and hot pads. You can cook or grill in their outside kitchen but like I mentioned, it was not clean. We never used it. We ate out or just ate fruit and stuff that didn't require cooking.
We were told they had all the beach equipment we'd need but we found it very poorly stocked and maintained. The umbrella was totally broken and would not even stay up. We wasted half a day driving 35 minutes to Walmart in Kahului to get a new one... then 35 min back to the beach at Kihei. (The highway speed limit is 40!) They did give us a new umbrella the next day, after we bought our own. We used both everyday after that. Their snorkel gear was just gross! Sandy, dirty ...no way we were going to put those things in our mouths or on our faces! We bought our own snorkel gear at Walmart too. Their beach chairs were fine and we appreciated the straw mats to set our gear and bags on so they didn't get so sandy. A small cooler was furnished, but only the ice you could make in two little ice trays in the itty bitty freezer of the tiny frig. (Bring your own zip lock bags for the ice.)
The breakfasts were disappointing, except for the mango! The first few days, they gave us fresh mango from their own tree! It was fantastic! But the tree ran out of mangoes and then we got store-bought fruit ( which by the way is no better than mainland fruit, much to our dismay). We could choose 4 items from a limited list: gluten free cereal (Cheerios), regular cereal, (I don't remember what kind... something like Raisin Brand I think), a croissant, a cup of orange juice or milk, a homemade muffin, (it wasn't that good) or fresh fruit. After trying everything on the list, we just stuck with a croissant and fruit every day. It was not fantastic or even great. It was just ok.
The laundry facilities are down a steep driveway in a carport of another unit. No one else was staying there so we didn't feel like we were intruding. They furnished the laundry soap but no dryer sheets.
The parking situation leaves something to be desired. You have to go up that same very steep driveway and park in front of their garage in one of two narrow spots. (Don't get a low riding car! We had a Buick and ended up trading it in for a Jeep!) If there are other vehicles on sight, you have to park down the hill in the carport where the laundry is.
I enjoyed the little chameleons that skitter all over the property. They didn't come inside, though I think they would have if we'd left the screen door open. The grounds and yard were beautiful! We ate breakfast on the deck most mornings, looking out over the treetops and neighborhood, listening to the birds and insects. It was glorious!
We were told it was a short 15 minute walk to the beach. Ya no. We drove to the beach. But that was ok because we were able to choose a different beach everyday... until we found the one we fell in love with! Then we just stuck with that one for the rest of our stay. It was about 6 miles from the B&B but soo worth the drive! The hosts were nice. That's all. We didn't really click or bond with them. We tried. (We were there for 12 days.)
However, on our last day, they very graciously allowed us to check out late since they had no one checking in that day and to make up for the parking difficulties we had during our stay due to their workers working on the property everyday. Our flight left late and we didn't want to give up our last day at the beach... but would have had no place to shower before going to the airport, so they let us shower there and leave late in the afternoon. It was very kind of them!
We had a fantastic time in Maui! The beach we fell in love with is called Po'olenalena. It's to the south in Wailea. But if we ever go back (which we hope to do) we will try another B&B. We don't feel any nostalgia or loyalty to this one.

We stayed in the Rainforest suite to take advantage of the lower nightly rate. The location is fairly good, with only a few minutes drive to many beaches and restaurants. The room is not extravagant with a small bathroom (no window) and the tinyest of kitchenettes. There is a nice private patio outside the room, but there is no view and the sun only reaches it during the mid-day. We used the patio for drying towels and swimsuits overnight, as well as breakfast in the morning. The owners are friendly, they offered the use of their BBQ and more extensive outdoor kitchen. The second suite is around the back of the house, so the other guests walk past your room - there is a trellis which provides some privacy. Breakfast is served at 6:30am or 8:30am via a secondary door to a hallway into the house. With the extensive expensive options in this area, this place is a relief.

Note: there is no real affiliation with Dreams Come True Lanai - which hands down has the best banana bread and poached eggs in Hawaii.

Room Tip: Rainforest room is for budget travelers

We rented the cottage for 9 nights and were extremely satisfied. The cottage was clean and bright with large windows looking toward the ocean. Although the owners' house is next door, there is lots of privacy because you are down the hill from the main house. The kitchen was well stocked and the lanai had a gas grill and table with umbrella. It was very convenient parking in the carport attached to the cottage. Carport also had a washer/dryer for our use. You are surrounded by a well-maintained yard with flowering shrubs and trees. Owners were very friendly and helpful and left us a nice food basket filled with chocolate, chips and cookies. Location is great and you are minutes drive from the best beaches in Kihei, Wailea and Makena. We had a great stay here and would recommend it highly.

We stayed in their "cottage" and loved it. It's really a whole house with large full kitchen, nice redecorated bathroom with fancy shower, huge living-dining area, great TVs, carport, lots of swimming-snorkel supplies, beach towels. Location is convenient to everything you'd need...we drove everywhere but you could walk to the beach if you prefer. The host, Tom, gave us tips on restaurants and his wife provided a welcoming goodie basket with homemade gingerbread and candy, tea, coffee was provided, and on and on....very friendly owners live a hundred feet away with two more b & b rooms in their home. You can see the ocean from the cottage and from the sunning area. I hope we can come back here and stay longer than a week

Room Tip: I did not see the B and B rooms. The freedom and privacy and space in the cabin easily make it worth the extra money, in my opinion.

Dreams Come True on Maui B&B has an excellent location and was great experience for us. Our room had a queen size bed with private bathroom and lanai. Our room was also supplied with a mini refrigerator, wine glasses and snacks. Their location is very convenient to lots of excellent beaches including Little Beach. There are many choices for restaurants nearby. The owners were very pleasant and we will definitely stay here on our next visit to Maui.
