The booking process was easy although the Owner Direct markup is a bit high IMO. The owner is very pleasant to deal with and everything went as planned and expectations were exceeded. This property owner cares and it shows with a very clean, well maintained, comfortable, quiet and safe home. All of the amenities in the home are good, sheets and pillows are clean and not old and worn, towels are plentiful and nice that beach accessories are also available. We prefer no A/C chills so the house to us was comfortable. Having the natural breeze in the house in the afternoon when it warmed up was really nice. There are several fans throughout the house and in April it was warm but we had no issues. The location is perfect if you are a frequent traveler to Maui and do not want all of the "tourist traffic and hype", but you do need a car. Paia, Haiku and Makawao are all great towns with excellent restaurants, groceries and fun things to do. The beaches on this side are more for surfing but Baldwin park is very nice. We appreciated the privacy and solitude we were given and will be staying here again for our spring breaks.
