“Best rental on Maui!”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My vacation rental was pretty last minute. I saw this place on here years ago and was sad it's not available often, but now I know why! Phil and Cris couldn't have mad our stay better. They were the most respectful owners/renters I have ever met. They called the day before our departure to make sure we didn't have any questions. They offered advice on what to pack and told us what would be there provided for us. From shampoo and conditioner, aloe, sea turtle molded soaps, hand and dish soap, bathing and beach towels, goggles for the ocean with flippers and boogie boards, a cooler, beach chairs, every appliance you could imagine with printed directions in the kitchen, and laundry soap if you wish to wash clothes before leaving, to postcards with a photo from their backyard beach as well as beautiful artwork throughout, a comfy bed with lots of extra blankets and plenty of space. The icing on the cake was arriving after a very long flight (13 hours) and having a fresh pineapple, Danishes, coffee, creamer island chocolates, water and POG juice (a Hawaiian delight) left in the refrigerator to greet you so that you can just run off to the beach without having to worry about breakfast. Phil and Cris made our stay so wonderful we are considering making Maui a home away from home until we can relocate there for good. My husband opened the lanai door at a bad time and didn't close it quickly enough and a few mosquitos got in. I let the Peacocks know and they were there as soon as possible (with my permission which they asked for respectfully) to inspect Windows and make sure we didn't have a leak. They also kindly brought over bug spray for us and a fogger for outside because this isn't usually a problem. I figure we are on an island, there will be bugs and never expected this much fuss over a few mosquitos but they insisted to make sure we were happy with our stay. They are the kindest people and very caring. They also called once we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed and to make sure we didn't have any questions. They also recommended the best shows and restaurants and even how to find lower cost activities so we could enjoy our stay without breaking the bank. We met them for lunch our last day there and they couldn't have been friendlier. They told us all about their moving to Maui story and made our dreams seem realistic to relocate there. We are so happy to have found them, as our friends paid a similar price and were very disappointed with their landlord- (their owners showed up unannounced and walked in to check on the place while they were in bed as well as told them they had a known problem with their air leaking). The Peacocks would have none of this. They only came with our consent and when I told this to them, they both looked at me funny and said "well then they should fix it." Which seems to be what I would think is normal as well. Everything in their property worked well and I know if I had a complaint, they would address it immediately. Their air worked very well and kept us very cool on the hottest days. Such simple but lovely touches made this place truly feel like home. I want to recommend this place to everyone I know, but I sure hope there is a slot for me to rent again because I will surely be coming back here!

Roxanne and Sean,
Thank you for your kind words and detailed description of your experience renting our condo from us here on Maui; we're so glad you enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you again soon. It was a pleasure meeting you and hearing about your plans to move to Maui one day. Until you find your dream home you're always welcome here at our place as your home away from home. As we say here in Hawaii: mahalo, aloha and a hui hou (until we meet again).

“The Best experience, with comforts of a true home”

person found this review helpful

I wasn't sure, what to expect since i had booked this within a month of my vacation. But from the very first contact with Phil to the last day on Maui, one of the best part of the experience was the Condo on the beach. While there are a few this was special cos of all the little things that Phil/Chris have already thought about. From the goodies in the kitchen, bedroom, board games and for the last day a hand held weight scale.

Cant say enough about how great this place is very well set for families with kids. We were 4 adults with two boys(9 years) and they had a blast.

Mahalo Chris/Phil, and all my friends are coming that way after seeing the pictures.

“Home away from home on Maui”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Wow! Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for our first trip to Maui! It was just like coming to a home away from home. Thank you for having such a nice place already set up for us to have a trip we’ll never forget. We put some good use into those boogie boards too, so much fun! Again thank you so much for the hospitality, wouldn’t hesitate at all to come back.

Mahalo!

Mahalo Phil and Cris for sharing your condo, again with us. We enjoyed the many turtles along the shore daily, the whale watching was amazing, and the abundance of amenities you’ve provided made this yet another unforgettable vacation. It was our 3rd time staying here and you guys impress us more and more each time with continually updating/adding amenities :-)

We appreciated all the beach chairs/toys/coolers and the sound of the ocean, each and every day/night. Your condo, is truly hard to beat compared to the many resorts & other vacation rentals we have been to.

Great location, Wonderful owners, spectacular views, and lovely/thoughtful extras (flowers, pog, coffee …)

We hope to return sooner than later!!! We already miss it!

Peace and <3,

“Great homebase!”
Reviewed 8 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Thank you for providing such a wonderful home base for a family Maui vacation. I don’t think we’ve ever stayed in a beach house that is so thoughtfully equipped. The kids loved the beach toys, snorkeling gear, games and movies – the adults loved the abundance of towels! ☺ and we all benefited from the selection of Maui tour books.
The location on the island was ideal to reach any other parts - or just stay put and enjoy the beach behind your lanai. And being able to cook all our meals in the condo saved money and felt very homey. We also very much appreciated all of the tasteful artwork.
We hope to be back!
