I liked the location of the property it wasn't too far away from most of the attractions.
It served as a safe harbor with a bed. That's all we were looing for. Hotels.com had the wrong address, so we had to call the hostel to find the location. A little less than we expected in terms of number of showers and toilets. Staff was friendly, and we met other travelers. Some tiny ants in the ...
I give 5 stars to this hotel. This hotel is a gem in Maui. It has a beautifully decorated interior and court yard. Fantastics breakfast. Support helpful staff!
Location. Location. Location is great. Quiet and peaceful. Close to nature. Love it. The owners very helpful in making sure we have what we need. Excellent place.
We loved our stay in this quiet little beach house. Gail and Jordan were great hosts, and provided everything we could possibly need and then some! Away from the busy, loud, bustling southern shore beaches we felt like we had our own private beach area most of the time. Thanks, Gail and Jordan, we’ll ...
Our flight was cancelled and we had to hang around the hotel without a room all day. They were extremely accommodating. They also provide shuttle service anywhere within 2 miles of the hotel. The only thing I could add would be complementary coffee in the lobby.
In the West Maui Mountain Reserve, the Iao Valley State Park is a ten-mile-long valley filled with a lush rainforest. One of Maui Island’s most significant historic sites, the Iao Valley was used as a burial area for ancient island chiefs and was also the site of the Battle of Kepaniwai in 1790. During the battle, King Kamehameha I defeated Maui’s troops and went on to unite the Hawaiian islands.
The big attraction in the Iao Valley State Park is a large rocky outcrop known as the Iao Needle, which you can hike up for a bit of an adventure. But you might want to take on one of the easier hikes suitable for families through the rainforest on the floor of the valley.
Just a ten-minute drive from the Iao Valley, the former missionary town of Wailuku has several two- and three-star hotels convenient for Kahului Airport. The town itself has a good stock of things to do, from perusing clothing boutiques to relaxing in one of the local coffee shops. And visitors will also find plenty of local amenities.
If you’d like to put whale watching at the heart of your stay in Ioa Valley State Park, look for a mid-range hotel 20-minutes’ drive away in Maalaea. A popular spot for whale watching, this small bay area is a family favourite as it is also home to the large Maui Ocean Center.
A popular destination for hikers in the West Maui Mountain Reserve is the Waihee Ridge Trail, a challenging five-mile hike best suited to experienced hikers. The trail leads you through some of Maui’s most secluded landscape and past striking views of the Pacific and nearby valleys.
There are plenty more hikes for all the family in Haleakala National Park. The large park surrounds the dormant Haleakala volcano, and you can walk a number of trails of varying lengths and difficulties through the lush forest at the base of the volcano. The most challenging walk takes you all the way up to the volcano’s crater.
