My wife and I stayed here on the last 3 days of our vacation. After a week in Kihei it was nice to experience the north of the island. The inn is a nicely renovated old house, squeaky floors and all! Lindsay, the inn keeper was great, super friendly and helpful. We had room 4 which was at the back...

We stayed two nights at the start of our Maui Trip November 30 and December 1. The other travelers we met were lovely and the innkeeper was incredibly friendly and accommodating. We loved this location close to Paia, at the start of Road to Hana and a great starting point for our drive to Haleakala. The inn was very clean...

We had a great stay at Kuau Inn. The inn is a lovely old plantation house - very old Hawaii. The rooms were cozy and super-clean. There is a great communal feel to the property - we shared breakfast conversation with other guests and swapped tips for favorite things to do on the island. Lindsay, the innkeeper, was fantastic. She...

We recently spent 5 nights at the Kuau Inn. We received a really warm welcome from Lindsey, the Innkeeper. She showed us around this lovely Plantation house which is attractive both inside and out. We felt at home right away. We had Room 2 upstairs which shares a hall washroom with just one other bedroom on the upper floor. Very...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights. The house is very nice - we liked it a lot. Especially, to meet other people and sit together with them to have a nice chat in the evening- if you want to. Of course there is space if you would like to be for your selfe. The house is very...

The Kuau Inn is a marvelous B & B, that is centrally located in an old, beautifully restored plantation house. The owners Julie and Neil Thompson, are the most wonderful, welcoming, people! The rooms are cozy and the property is so gorgeous, surrounded by tropical gardens and lawns, with cool, fragrant, tropical breezes blowing throughout the house. The kitchen is...

The first thing I loved about this place was the hospitality! We arrived *super* early on a flight from Honolulu, and the manager was kind enough to let us put our luggage up until check in. When we got there at about 7:30 a.m, she let us hang out in the day room downstairs, and take a nap, since we'd...

We spent 3 nights at the Inn and enjoyed staying in the lovely old plantation house with high ceilings. We stayed in the room on the main floor with it's own bathroom. While it is on a main road we did not find noise to be an issue at all. Wifi was great, we were able to use it to...
