AMAZING PLACE, GREAT HOSTS!!!
It was wonderfull !
We, a party of five friends (two couples and a friend) enjoyed staying 6 days in Dianas and Troys house.
First of all, the hosts were great! They were very lovely and always available if we needed anything. We left just one day before hurricane Iselle hit the island. We never experienced a hurricane before. They told us everything we needed to know and really calmed us down.
But not only the hosts were great. The house is amazing. We really enjoyed the pool and the jacuzzy. Also the house itself is great. The master bedroom has an awesome bathroom and also the kitchen is very well equipped. And there was also the bbq and the fireplace outside we used multiple times.
We would definitely rent the house again!

BEST PART OF OUR VACATION!
The pictures do not do the place justice. Beautiful home, AWESOME view, and best location! We had 6 adults and 5 kids with us. The house is big enough for all of us and we all fit and slept comfortably. Although we were on vacation on the beautiful island of Maui, staying in this home felt like a vacation in itself because it felt very luxurious! The beach was a short drive but it was great to have the option of having a pool and Jacuzzi. We were in there everyday. The house is also very close to Kihei and Wailea and we took surf lessons just down the street at Maui Wave Riders. We all didn't want to leave!
I would recommend this house to families with children. The best part for our kids was that there were board games to play with for family game night! Troy and Dianne thought of everything!

We were two families including four teenagers visiting Mauï and it was just the perfect house to be. The feeling of quietness and beauty was exaclty what we found every day at this place after a wonderful day visiting the Island.
The owners were very friendly and helpful, making our stay memorable.
The property description and pictures are very acurate. It was very cleaned and well maintained.
Thank you very much Troy and Dianna for sharing your paradise with us.

My hubby & I renewed our vows on the beach for our 20th anniversary and the best present was renting this beautiful home. It has EVERTHING you could possibly want on vacation including perfect host's in Troy & Dianna. They graciously allowed us to pop in early to drop off our luggage and continued to share their abundant aloha spirit throughout our stay. They were there if you needed them and gone when not. We split the rental with four other family members and highly recommend doing this as long as you choose the right members! We did and it equated into the most fun and relaxing vacation we have ever been blessed with. We decided on the way back to Alaska that we will be back to thaw out again, sooner rather than later! Mahalo again T & D, you guys are awesome! P.S. we miss the pool so much, that's the only thing I'm crying about!Nancy H.

Our family and nanny stayed here in May. It was so nice to be in a quiet residential neighborhood that was also very close to the beach, markets, and restaurants. The house itself is the perfect setup...parents on one side and two other bedrooms on the other. Because the master bedroom was so spacious, we had our 8 month old twins (each in a separate pack n play) in our room. This gave the nanny a very private oasis on the other side of the house, with her own nicely appointed bathroom. The kitchen, dining room, and livingroom were all open which was fabulous (our boys were just learning to crawl and there was a lot of nice hardwood floor open space). But the best part of the house were the livingroom windows/sliding glass doors that looked out over the beautiful backyard and infinity pool. These window/doors completely opened the span of the room and made the backyard a theoretical extension of the house. It was wonderful to wake up, open up, and have our coffee and breakfast outside. The pool was a perfect temp and gave us a nice option when we didn't want to visit the beach. The backyard also had a built-in BBQ (which we used almost every night) and a fire pit where we made s'mores one evening. The kitchen was completely stocked with appliances and utensils and there was also a newer washer/dryer for us to use. The owners were very personable. We found them to be helpful and responsive even before we arrived on the island. In short, we look forward to staying here the next time that we are in Maui (hopefully, it will be available). We loved it!PDX Rountree

PARADISE PLUS A POOL!
This property is all you need for a perfect Hawaiian vacation! This property included every comfort you can think of with a beautiful pool and a spectacular view. However it is very close to great beaches and ocean activities. The owners were fabulous. It was the best scenario They were nearby if we needed anything but gave us complete privacy. Our family would absolutely stay here again!PBGP

REST AND RELAXATION!!
We chose this house to get away from it all, we wanted peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of resort stays. This place was that and more! My dad, my sister, her friend and myself were looking forward to experiencing Maui and we definitely did that with the owner's help. They were so wonderful to us when we arrived, we were completely at home the minute we met them. Actually probably before we met as we talked on the phone several times and Troy was so easy to get along with! :) They were very helpful in giving suggestions on activities and also by being just a door knock away. For the first few days all we did was sleep, roll out of bed into the pool or onto a lounge chair to tan (for us girls)!!! and once we caught up on rest we ventured out. Everything is so close it was great, we could be shopping or on the beach within minutes of leaving our home. I say home and mean it as we were so comfortable in the space it was so hard to leave. Even now it feels like it was a fairytale and we dreamed it all, it was so perfect!
I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to get away from it all, we spoiled ourselves and it was worth it!!

We stayed at this house for almost 2 weeks with 2 families of four (kids age 5,6,8,8). On Maui we usually end up at a different beach every day so we weren't overly concerned with having a place right across the street from the beach. This house is in a nice residential area with the closest beach being about 3-4 minutes by car. Within 10 minutes the options are limitless.
The house itself is in great shape. It is well decorated and extremely clean. The master bedroom is enormous. The owners provided a very large (almost queen sized) inflatable bed so we were able to blow that up in the master bedroom and house 2 adults and 2 kids there. The other family had their own private space at the other end of the house with one bedroom for the kids and one for the adults, as well as their own bathroom. Really an ideal setup for 2 families if one family doesn't mind sharing a room with their kids.
The backyard is perfect for afternoons/evenings hanging around the pool drinking Mai Tai's. The pictures don't do it justice. The infinity pool backs onto lush vegetation and a gorgeous ocean view. There are outdoor speakers so you can plug in your tunes and create the perfect atmosphere. The pool/spa heating and filter system is a bit complicated, but once the owner explained how it all worked we were able to run it ourselves with no trouble. The spa heats up in about 10 minutes so you just start it running a little bit ahead of when you want to swim.
The kitchen was huge and had just about every appliance and utensil you could every want. Unlike most of the places we have rented on Maui, the pots, pans, knives, dishes, etc.. were almost brand new and all quite good quality. This was a big bonus for a crowd who likes to do their own cooking.
We'll definitely be back!
FYI...you definitely need a car if you're staying here.

I am a former Maui resident, and this property was everything we expected and MORE!! We had 2 beach weddings while on Maui and had our receptions by the pool. There was 6 of us and we were VERY comfortable. This property worked out beautifully for us. It is close to everything, Beach, Shopping, Grocery, etc.
The owners were available at a moments notice if we needed them, and definitely have the Aloha Spirit.
Bottom line....can't go wrong, I would recommend this property to anyone headed to Maui.

Troy and Dianna's home in Kihei was perfect for our vacation. We really enjoy cooking, so the fully stocked kitchen with all the utensils you could possibly need and the outside BBQ was in constant use. The house has a Sonos music system which allowed us to listen to our own music having cocktails in the pool. The house offers a surprising amount of privacy given it's central location, with big hedges that doesn't impact the stunning view of Maalaea Bay.Zach
