We stayed in the cottage over Christmas 2013. The B&B is conveniently located in Kihei – it’s only a 5 minute drive to restaurants, shopping and the board walk in Wailea. The hosts provided helpful information on beaches in the area. The little “extras” are very nice- snorkel equipment, coolers, body boards, so you won't need to pack any of these things for yourself.
Unfortunately, I felt this accommodation truly fell short of excellence. Keep in mind that there is not daily room service, something which I've come to expect from a B&B is that I should not have to change my own towel or take out own trash. I was told that there would be a washer dryer for the cottage; however the washing machine was broken upon arrival. While this isn't the end of the world, it’s an inconvenience when you pack planning on it.
The water tank primarily heats on solar, but it wasn’t working properly. During our stay, the temperature of the water didn’t exceed 78 degrees on most mornings, so be prepared for a cold awakening. Possibly well-meaning, the hosts suggested that I shower in the utility room in the main house. Sorry, but for $170/night, I expect a shower in the room.
If you have cat allergies, you should be aware that the cat will lie on all of the outdoor furniture and is constantly hanging around the cottage. The breakfast includes homemade pastries and fresh fruit however it is very light... a couple pieces of fruit and a croissant does not hold me over till lunch.
If you plan on preparing meals in the cottage, be aware that you can really only count on salt and pepper. We requested to check-out 90 minutes late – unfortunately, the hosts were unable to accommodate with no compromise. The carpet in the bedroom was constantly wet in the doorway to the bathroom, which I can only assume is from an unresolved leak. In addition, I thought it was very unusual that the hosts completely avoided us for the last three days of our stay.
