“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

The Maui Guesthouse is a hidden gem for anyone who wants to be close to Kaanapali Beach, but not on the strip. The pictures on Trip Advisor are accurate and it was even better once I got there. Tanna and her staff were very accomodating and helpful. I love the fact that if you have forgotten something or ran out of something, there is a good chance they have it. If you want to be a 5 minute drive from Kaanapali Beach, in the residential area of old Lahaina, this is the place for you. Its obvious why there are so many repeat guests!

We received a warm welcome having arrived tired and jet lagged from England. From the outset the Guest House suited our needs perfectly. Our air conditioned room was clean and spacious with its own fridge and TV/ DVD. The breakfasts of fresh fruit , cake and fresh bread were the ideal way to start the day. For the remainder of the day we always had access to the kitchen, BBQ , pool and terrace. Not being directly on the beach was not a disadvantage for us as the Guest House is situated on a quiet street less than 5 mins drive from the centre of Lahaina and the large supermarkets. Tanna, Brad and the staff were always very attentive and a mine of information about local amenities. If we were to visit Maui again we would not waste time looking at other hotels we would merely go back to the Maui Guest House. It was perfect - thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Our initial disappointment in not finding desired accommodations directly on the west Maui beaches was quickly erased by the pleasure of discovering the Maui Guest House, where we thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay. The staff made us feel like old friends and while always available to help or offer advice they were in no way obtrusive. As already described by many others this property provides so much more than simply a room and breakfast. You will not only avoid the resort fees you will have free access to DVDs, coolers, beach equipment and so much more than any resort would offer.

Each room includes a nice size refrigerator to keep drinks and food cold. While we did not avail ourselves to cooking, the kitchen has not only the essentials but is also well stocked with spices and condiments. The owner not only keeps the house immaculate, it is obvious she is continually reinvesting in the property and and replacing items as they age. Should we ever return to Maui we would definitely try to stay at the Maui Guest House.

Room Tip: Rooms in rear have a lanai which allows one to skip the A/C and enjoy fresh island air at night.

We stayed at the Guest House for half of our honeymoon and loved it! We used all the snorkel and beach gear which made exploring Maui so much easier. The fresh fruit at breakfast was a lovely way to start each day and we were able to save money by having a fridge to pack our lunches! We had a nice time sleeping in, relaxing in the hot tub or hammock, and staying up late "puzzling" with other guests. The staff had great recommendations and helped us book some of our advenutres. We had a perfect visit!

From the moment you step into the B & B, it is like coming home. Brad greeted us, and offered us a cold ice tea. The B & B is sparkling clean, lots of amenities. Your own private lanai with a jacuzzi, this was very secluded & peaceful. They have everything you could need, from picnic stuff to snorkeling gear. We hope to return one day!!

The Guest House is a beautifully decorated and welcoming place to stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have large screen TVs in every room and a large library of DVDs to choose from. The bed was super-comfy and the sheets very high quality. I was travelling alone and enjoyed the interaction with others staying there as we sat at the breakfast table together.

Not only is this b&b super clean, filled with lots of convenient cost-saving amenities, and located in a safe residential area, but the hosts, Brad, Myra, and Teresa do an exceptional job making their guests feel welcome and comfortable. They expressed sincere interest in us and our travel activities. We especially appreciated the free usage of snorkel gear and beach/picnic items, the fresh fruits at breakfast, and being able to do our laundry right there. Great beach and snorkel sites were suggested. The in-room salt-water hot tub was so relaxing. We reallly enjoyed looking at the Hawaiian decor and beautiful stained glass windows each day. Due to our very late flight, a late check-out enabled us to enjoy the beach one last itme without worrying about packing up beforehand. Brad even weighed our checked luggage before we headed to the airport. We will never forget that we saw the most amazing fireworks displays going on in all directions right from the deck on New Year's Eve. We would highly recommend this b&b to anyone going to Maui.
