Actually that title has a double meaning. This is an ideal place for couples, and it's shared with a colony of escaped/feral lovebirds living in a palm tree a short distance away and making frequent visits to the well-stocked bird feeder on the edge of the cool lower lanai outside our bedroom door. If you like gardens and birds you'll love this place. We sure did!
The location near the top of the hill in an upscale acreage subdivision is close to Kihei and it's easy to access everywhere on Maui from here with daytrips in a rental car, which is what we proceeded to do over the next 6 days. It's 5 minutes to the beach and those amazing sunsets.
The Mai'a Studio room was first rate and the queen bed was very comfortable. We slept with the windows open and didn't need either the ceiling fan or the air conditioning. Breakfasts were fruit and baking, different every day, waiting for us on the lanai table outside our door. Hosts Susan and Chuck provide a lot of extras - snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers, towels, really anything one might need to enjoy their vacation. Plus lots of helpful advice. And very welcome grilling secrets - thanks Chuck!
Susan recommended the drive to Hana continuing clockwise around the island to the start and we really enjoyed the circuit, with two nice hikes of a couple of hours each at the black sand beach and the Pipiwai Trail in Haleakala National Park. We finished with the sun setting above Kihei. Couldn't ask for more.
Our hosts were friendly and helpful, our room was great, really everything was perfect. We would happily return again.
