First some reviews (these are from people who stayed in the main house....only my husband and I have stayed in the cottage so far. We wanted to see what it needed to make it comfortable and homey.
If you are going to Maui, you want to stay on the beach and that's what you get. You also get a wonderful view of bay, the extinct volcano Haleakala, and more. The lights at night are spectacular. Gail and her family are terrific hosts. No pressure but always available to help or guide when you wanted them. Altogether, our stay was delightful and I highly recommend staying with them when you are in Maui.
Staying with Gail and Jordan was a wonderful experience using Airbnb for the first time. Upon arriving, Gail immediately made us feel at home. Her prompt and helpful email responses prior to our visit were appreciated and helped make it feel like we already knew her before we even arrived. Gail and Jordan were delightful hosts with plenty of invaluable insights about what to see and do. Their gorgeous ocean front home was very comfortable with views of the ocean and island. Fresh papaya, fruit and coffee were waiting for us in the morning when we woke up. Not only did they steer us to great places to snorkel, they supplied us with towels, beach chairs, snorkels, masks and fins. We came as strangers, but left as friends. We couldn't ask for better hosts. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. It was wonderful.
We had an amazing time at Gail & Jordan's place. We felt like at home and enjoyed their sharing. Well located for most of the activities around the island. Good place to go!
Gail and Jordan made us welcome like family from the very beginning. My husband and I had an amazing time with them, not to mention the great location! We went and picked guavas with them one day too; so much fun! It was great to stay with them because they knew of all the places to visit and the best ways to get there. I was skeptical to stay with someone in their home at first, but never again- i felt like I was visiting family...definitely recommend you booking your trip and staying w/ Gail and Jordan!!!!
Staying with Gail and Jordan was a highlight of our stay on Maui. They were hospitable, welcoming and able to answer any travel questions we had. They even had fresh papaya with lime (both grown by them in their beautiful garden) for breakfast, which was the best I have ever tasted! Jordan even gave us the lowdown on the surfing (which was pretty much their back yard) and even took out some of his own person boards for us to use. I felt at home with their easy going nature and would recommend them to anyone looking for an authentic and easy going place to stay in Wailuku! Mahalo Gail and Jordan! We will be back, for sure!
I loved staying at Gail and Jodan's place, it was like being at home so far away! They really spoilt me and thanks to them I could get to know a more intimate Maui than just a tourist overview and very interesting people; I am really grateful for that :) And their house is beautiful, with awesome view on the ocean. Hope to come back soon! :)
Aloha. Gail and Jordan have made my first 3 days on the island very memorable - especially as a single female traveler. Greeted & treated like a friend in this very tranquil neighbourhood from the first minute I joined a Hot Hula class and a sunset picnic with their friends. They have shared their favourite Maui places with me as well as snorkel gear and even lend warm closing for my early morning volcano sunrise trip. None of their recommendations have failed my impression of them being great hosts. The view from the veranda, my own bath together with the salad and papaya from their front yard mad this stay very hard to beat. Hopte to be back some day and in the meantime I will send friends and family to stay here.Thanks so much!!
There is much to say about this beautiful waterfront home and their friendly owners, who not only are fantastic hosts, but helped us with all sorts of tips and ideas on what to do during our stay in Maui. We are not of those who spend all day at the beach and we like to hike and visit unique sites and we were lucky that our hosts share this hobby and we showed us amazing places and the best routes to get there. It really has been an incredible experience that would repeat without hesitation!
Our brand new cottage with all brand new appliances, bed, bedding, pillows, quilts & shams, towels, etc. sits on the ocean side of our gorgeous oceanfront home in an upscale neighborhood yet close to everything.
We finally got our electricity and Cable in! Sliding mirrored doors separating bedroom from main room are being custom-made. My husband and I are sleeping there and is the bed ever comfortable! The Serta mattress, plush mattress pad and new all-cotton sheets are wonderful! Now I want to order all new for ourselves in the main house!
As much privacy or socialization as you like -- I will stock it with coffee, tea and condiments and you can join us in the main house for breakfast or not as you choose. (see photos of that in the listings above)-- you can hang out up here on the porch (though your deck is closer to the ocean) or patio and use the BBQ or join us if we are BBQing either just us or entertaining others) In any case, we can lend you snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers, etc. and give you tips on good things to do and things to avoid.
Price is for 2 people. Extra people, $10 each per night. 4 night minimum required. We can set up a queen or two twin air mattresses or both for extra people)
We can also refer you to friends who will give you local rates on activities such as water sports, downhill biking, used car rental and art gallery. I listed gym as an amenity because we can give you each 3 day passes to the YMCA for classes, weights, racquetball or pool.
Consider including our Local for a Day tours described at our website by that name and ending (website hidden).
The area we are in is called "Central Maui" because you can easily drive to everywhere else. Yet our particular location feels more like country with open beach and ocean in front and to the north.
