What a gem of place! It's a rare find when a vacation rental looks exactly like its online photos, but this is definitely the case with Kihei Garden Oasis! The house is truly beautiful, and it's clear that the owners have put a lot of love and care in the design and decorating of the home. It's warm and inviting, with top of the line furnishings and appliances. Truly lovely property in person. The grassy front yard is very private and perfect for an outdoor yoga session, or to send the kids foraging for ripe passion fruit. Yes! there are passion fruit in the front yard. They were amazingly delicious! The house is in a perfect location. Definitely within walking distance to local shopping and restaurants. The owners emailed a Maui guide (nice touch btw) which included local recommendations. One of their recommendations was Ululani's Shave Ice. The shave ice here is life transforming :)...Service is super friendly and just a great vibe. Not included in the owner’s guide is a great local spot - Maui Thai Bistro. The food was sooo tasty (warning...they mean spicy). We ordered out so can't speak to the ambiance. Oh, and can't forget the the beaches. In a word - Spectacular! We visited a different beach each day, and each one was more picturesque than the next so it's impossible to pick a fave. However one of the standouts was Keawakapu - for a low key, calm surf swimming beach day! We're already planning a trip back to Maui and will definitely return to Kihei Garden Oasis!
