We were a family of four visiting Maui last August and spent 5 nights there. The place is quiet, it is a tropical garden wherever you look, well equipped, BBQ, swimming pool. We were in the Gardena cottage. The location is perfect to go to Haleakala national park and to visit North/North East places such Hookipa, Paiaa, Hana road. The...

We stayed here three days after four days in Ka'anapali -- what a difference! Very peaceful and quiet. We had an issue with the privacy of the room we booked (the place was fairly well-booked at the time), and Marty was happy to change us to another room. Nice salt-water pool! Only a half-minute from "downtown" Makawao, which is cute...

Returned for my 3rd visit at this magnificent property. As always, owner Marty greeted us with aloha. How wonderful to just walk into your cottage - door unlocked, chocolates on your pillows! So serene. Love and always use the large saline pool and wonderful hot tub. Can't wait to see what delicious surprises await us in the early morning breakfast...

I'm ambivalent about this property. The grounds and the pool are beautiful. The bungalow itself was fine. But it was hot when we were there and I sweated it out the first night. Also the breakfast is a joke. Muffins and yogurt from Target. It would take so little effort to make home made muffins or banana bread each morning...

Our family of four stayed in Sue's Cottage for our first two nights in Maui. The location is ideal if you want to spend more time at Haleakala, getting to Hana, and Upcountry. It's 20 minutes from the airport , 15 minutes to Paia, and takes a little over an hour to get to the top of Haleakala summit from...

We booked our 3 night stay here back in March. We liaised with the owner and specifically chose a named cottage which had a full bath, full kitchen and outdoor veranda. When we arrived at 2200 after our flight from the UK , there was a notice on the window of the office for two arrivals that night. They had...

Thank you for your valuable feedback. We are constantly striving to improve our guests experience. I am sorry that you felt it had a 1950s feel, however as we are a historical property we are hoping to retain the traditional Hawaiian plantation house experience. We apologize for not notifying you prior to your arrival regarding your room change. We assure...

This b&b has a great pool and nice space. It is also close to a great little Maui town, Makawao. I would recommend as a good base for upcountry activities on Maui. The owner Marty is especially helpful and very zen Maui!

We stayed two nights here and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. Bed is a bit too soft but that's just me. The pool is great! And the location is very convenient for the drive to Hana, as well as if you want to drive up the volcano crater to see sunrise - we didn't have to wake up until 3.45am, unlike...

Makawao is a neat little town on the "hillside". If you want a break from the beach resorts and the rain forest hotels, this is your place. The property is pretty large, with a big grass area and a pool. The rooms are clean and quiet. The owner Marty is such a nice guy. One night we bought some steaks...
