I just got back from a 2 week stay on Maui and what an experience! Traveling with my two sons (ages 14 and 22), our first week was spent in the Kihei/Wailea area and our second week spent in the Lahaina/Kaanapali area. While we enjoyed the beaches and the outdoor activities in both locations tremendously, we just could not get over the difference we felt between the B&Bs. At our first place, we were made to feel as if we had to "walk on tip toe" in someone else's home. Not at the Guest House! We felt as if it was OUR home. From the get go, we were greeted with warm smiles, refreshing drinks, and the mini tour of the home let us know that we had availability to just about everything. The kicker was when we found out that our host Jim gave a FREE pool class for those that wanted to try scuba. Since my older son is already a certified diver this was a great opportunity to have his brother join him. The kids had a blast! They ended up doing a total of 3 different dives with "Scuba Jim." It was a life changing experience for them, something that cannot be described, but was certainly seen on their excited faces as they would return from each dive adventure. For once their age difference didn't matter. I was so proud of them! I cannot thank Jim enough for the attention he gave my boys! I watched two brothers become friends and dive buddies!
As for me, (a non diver due to ear problems), I actually got caught up on much needed R&R. There is such a peace about the Guest House, it truly felt as if we were staying with family. Everything was spotlessly clean and organized. I guess the best review would be to let you know that we have already planned our return trip, and yes, we will be staying our entire time at the Guest House next year.
