“Aloha”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

I am a return guest of the Maui Guesthouse. As before, I was not disappointed in any way.
We, as travelers, have our own comfort levels and desires. For me, the Guesthouse offers it all. I like the personal interaction and the "homelike" feeling. Tanna and the staff provided great service, funny stories and much helpful advice about life on Maui. As mentioned by other reviewers, all the beach gear you need is there, just bring yourself! You don't get that cattle herding feeling like that of a big resort. The Guesthouse allows one to meet and swap stories with others in a very casual way. Simply put, it is a jewel within a beautiful setting.
I would most definitely recommend the Maui Guesthouse and I will return.
Thank you Tanna, Barbara and Amanda, you made for another great memory filled trip to Maui.
Mahalo and Aloha....Jim

My wife and I just returned from a 10 night stay at the Maui Guesthouse. This was our first trip to Hawaii and staying at the Guesthouse was one of the best decisions we made. The property is located in a vicinity of Lahaina which made everything easy to get to and enjoy. The Guesthouse can provide anything you need for your daytrips from beachchairs, towels, coolers, ice, snorkel gear, boogie boards, etc. Just ask Tanna, Amanda or Barbara and they will fix you up.

Each morning we were greeted with a delicious selection of fresh fruit, muffins and bagels. Tanna and her team made sure the house was kept spotless throughout the day. The beautiful stained glass windows throughout the house brought the tropics into each room 24/7. Several times we used the BBQ to prepare our own meals. This made a very convenient way of having an inexpensive dinner and we usually had leftovers for lunch the next day.

If you get a chance, ask Tanna about some of her diving stories, she has had some exciting experiences.

We do have one problem with the Maui Guesthouse. We want to return to Hawaii and visit the other Islands but there is only one Guesthouse.

Aloha from Greg & Colleen

Room Tip: We had one of the rooms in the back. Very nice and quiet.

I had the chance to meet Tanna, Barbara and Amanda while I spent 5 days in Maui. They are a great team. What I really enjoyed were:
-the whole house was spotless
-the room was big and confortable and the bathroom very nice and modern (lots of towels)
-the private lanai very welcoming and relaxing
-the pool and patio were great to take a drink or to do a BBQ
-they provide everthing you need to go to the beach (towels, chairs, boards, snorkelling gear)
-Tanna was helpful to book a whale watching excursion (she knows what she talks about)
-breakfast was easy and very good (everything is accesible when you want it)
-but what I enjoyed the most was their help to make me feel at ease cause my suitcase came 4 days late
-the price is worth the service

We spent 6 nights here in February 2012. For the price you will not find better accommodation on Maui. The quality of the room, the friendliness of the staff, the relaxed laid back attitude, the helpful travel advice plus the location make this the place to holiday in Maui. When we had to deal with some urgent family business back home in Australia, Tanna was so very generous, allowing us full use of her office so we could access computer, printer etc. Another great advantage of the Maui Guest House is the use of free wi fi. And did we mention the sumptuous breakfast? We highly recommend this B and B. You will not be disappointed.

My wife and I had the wonderful opportunity to spend 7 nights at the Maui Guest House in early March, 2012. From when we arrived, until we left, we were treated like family!

Arriving on Maui on a mid-day flight from Kauai, after record breaking rains on Kauai, we were really looking for a great place to stay. Our Budget car rental rental agent recommended "da Kitchen" for late lunch. It was really great. Probably could have shared our meal. da-kitchen.com

We drove the approximately 45 minutes to Lahaina, being amazed at each of the vistas as we headed up the winding highway towards Lahaina. We easily found The Maul Guest House, parked our brand new (6 miles on it) rental 2 door Rangler and went inside. We were warmly welcomed, including a cold drink. We were given the full tour of the guest house; from our well equipped room (salt water Jacuzzi, good sided shower, well equipped bath (full size bath bars of soap). Our unit even had an exterior door so we wouldn't have to walk thru the house. There was plenty of storage, desk space and an extra bed which became our space to put our junk. Great drawer space, 42" TV and DVD in the room. Plenty of overhead light (the stained glass windows sort of made the room dark, but the non-natural light more than covered for the lack of natural light thru the windows. The room could use a comfortable reading chair, but there was seating in both living rooms where you could go and relax. The linens were quality (pleanty of extra linems on the shelf in the room) (each room had a different color towel / sheets so that they knew which needed washing first). The queen size bed was very comfortable, but the wooded edge of the platform was a little difficult getting used to.

Free "quality" beach chairs (Tommy Bahama), beach matts and multiple beach towels, use of the laundry (between 1 and 7 pm), and full use of the kitchen were both welcome additions. The is a smallish pool, with plenty of outdoor sitting, a good gas grill (which we used one night to cook a steak.

The crazy state laws limiting the actual cooking of a hot breakfast by the owner of a B&B is stupid (the restaurant lobby must have something going with the elected officials). However, the guests at MGH were able to use the kitchen and cook an egg or use it from 7:30 am to 9 pm any day. The fruit offerings at Breakfast were great, VERY fresh.

The common areas included comfortable seating, multiple games and puzzles and a guest house computer with internet access. Also, free wireless in the house and around the pool deck. Free long distance calls anywhere are also available. Wireless worked well. Our room at times dropped the wireless so I would have to go and re-establish connection by opening our room door.

MGH does a wonderful job of trying to make their guests feel like family. Tanna (the ower), Barbara and Amanada were a wealth of information to make our stay most enjoyable: from restaurant recommendations, beach recommendations, and recommendations on day trips, it was like having a full-time cruise director along with us. The staff was there when needed but they kept their distance (they didn't hover). You are given a number to call 24 hours a day if you need anything!

I didn't mention how impressed we were with how clean the MGH and our room/bath were. You could eat off the floor. The Maui Guest House is close to multiple wonderful beaches and shopping and restaurants.

We would definitely stay again at the Maui Guest House. Thank you Tanna, Amanda, and Barbara for making our stay so enjoyable. Send any questions our way to b.amsbary@rcn.com

If you are looking for friendly staff, a comfortable, clean, attractive room, and quiet neighborhood, look no further. We traveled to Maui for a conference at one of the resort hotels in Ka'anapali beach, but stayed at this B and B in the north end of residential Lahaina which turned out to be perfect location for accessing the conference as well as the many laid back, unpretentious restaurants in Lahaina. The staff is attentive to every need and allows their guests full access to the modern kitchen and laundry facilities. If you require cleanliness, this is the place for you. It is impeccable. We have no reservations about the Maui Guest House and would consider going back to Maui just to have another chance to stay there again.
