My family of three just spent a fabulous week at Spyglass Rentals' Gingerbread House near the lovely town of Paui. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, loved the comfy and cozy cottage, especially the upstairs bedroom which opens to a terrace in the trees. Fantastic location, 5 minutes from town, from beautiful Baldwin beach, from Mama's Fish House, and Ho'okipa where...

My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay at the Green Turtle house this August. Poni is a very attentive and helpful host, and the house was a really nice place to hang out and siesta during the hot afternooons, (unlike a hotel room where you don't want to do much more than sleep). We found ourselves hanging around the...

This place is a real gem! A totally charming little house with so much character. Sleeping in the bedroom upstairs was so relaxing with the ceiling fan going and the breezes blowing - a little bit of heaven. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood just past the town of Paia, which is a cute and fun place to...

My husband and I spent a blissful anniversary week at the Gingerbread House in Paia, HI. We are two active, nature loving, bicycle riding vegans and first time Maui explorers. We were more than satisfied with the privacy and comfort that the house provided. Poni, the house caretaker, was responsive to our needs and very pleasant. The house is tucked...

Me and my girlfriend have been in the paia spyglass house for 3 nights. We had the master bedroom and we had the whole flat for us because the other bedrooms weren't booked. There's a huge terrasse which invites you to eat breakfast there. We didn't spend much time in the house, because we wanted to see maui and not...

A house with potential but fully abandoned, very dirty, filled with insects. Owners never showed up, trash piled up, door was broken so impossible to lock. Bed was rotten and pillows disgusting. We had to insist to get clean sheets and towels. The kitchen equipment is run down and many cupboards are broken.

Aloha, I am a hands on owner, and have been in this business for 18 years. We have about ninety great reviews. I would never let my beautiful owner run homes get into a state of abandonment as this review is stating. We would never leave garbage piled up, we would fix a door as soon as we knew that...

The Skyline apartment was nothing special. The pictures look great, but don't be deceived by them. They claim a fully stocked kitchen. Not! The knives were so dull, I couldn't cut the pineapple. The freezer shows ice/water in the door. Not! It doesn't work. There is a dishwasher. Not! It doesn't work and had soap hardened in the door. The...

I found this entry misleading since Spyglass have a bunch of properties, I assume of different levels of quality. Hence, its misleading to link them all under one score. The Bicycle Inn where we stayed is definitely not 4 star. We stayed in the Bicycle Inn for 3 nights. It was okay, but only just okay. The name is somewhat...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Spyglass Maui Rentals are two, well cared for homes, right next door to each other, in the middle of all of the North Shore beaches and less than a mile from Paia town, in a local, residential neighborhood. The closest beach access is a 5 minute walk away. The houses are owned by a two good friends and long time Maui residents, Liam McCormick and Poni Brendan, who call themselves family. Our on-sight manager, Sabrina, and full time housekeeper, Patti are here to assist you. The rentals are clean, comfortable and will make you feel like you are spending time in a "home away from home" rather than in a resort hotel. The Gingerbread House, at the rear of the property, is a very unique, two story, one bedroom house with a lanai off the second floor bedroom and an outdoor patio on the ground level. It has a jetted tub in the first floor bathroom. The Green Turtle House can be rented as a ONE or TWO bedroom house and can accommodate up to 6 guests when rented as a TWO bedroom. In our older reviews and on Google there is mention of the Bicycle Inn/House and the beachfront "Spyglass House". These are no longer our properties. The Gingerbread House and Green Turtle House have been under new management since the fall of 2014. The most current reviews of our properties can be found on Airbnb and VRBO. In our rentals, we try to provide everything that you will need to enjoy your vacation and leave your cares at home. Our focus is to create a lovely environment so that our guests can have a wonderful base from which to enjoy their vacation and explore all that is beautiful and special about Maui. Please contact us if you need additional information or have specific questions. During your stay, we are on-site and happy to help. Mahalo! ... more   less

“Keep a window or two open or maybe a ceiling fan running while you are gone during the day otherwise when you return it will be hot and humid.”

“We were really lucky: We paid for one of the rooms that had a shared bath, and no one joined us the two nights we were there, so we got an entire house all to ourselves. Before you book, consider e-mailing the owner and seeing if she can give you any heads up about how booked the place is. It would be a shame to pay extra for the suite if both other bedrooms stayed open, and if no one else is renting any of the space for the time you're there, you should definitely get a room there! An amazing deal.”
