Our stay at Ginger Falls was really great.
The accoooodation is lovely, in a really quiet, peaceful, cool location, and its great to be up-country away from the beaches.
The cottage is very well appointed and furnished, and the showere is just sooooooo nice!!!
You also won't find a nicer pair of hosts either - really thoughtful and just so friendly.
Simlply superb!

Hi Cassie Tom,
You were GREAT guests! We loved having you, even though we hardly ever saw you. And....you left the rental so picked up and tidy....made our work a breeze. So you get an A+ as guests :-)
Hope to see you again.

“A private vacation oasis close to all the sights of Maui.”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at Ginger Falls Vacation Rental in September 2013 on our first trip to Hawaii. We would highly recommend it to couples who want to stay in a private oasis. Sunny and Bob(the owners) are fantastic. They are available to give you any help you may need with dining ideas, directions to beaches, day trips, etc. but otherwise they let you enjoy the privacy and tranquility of the property.
The accommodations are excellent. The breakfast bar was a perfect spot to start the day looking out at the bamboo trees. The shower felt like showering outdoors under palm trees. The screened porch was our favourite place to eat dinner, plan our activities for the next day and then read in the evenings. The bed and bedding felt like sleeping on a cloud.
Ginger Falls is secluded enough to feel isolated but central to all the sights of Maui. We will definitely stay at Ginger Falls Vacation Rental again and highly recommend it.

“Our Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 21 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We envisioned an authentic getaway in Maui and Wild Ginger Falls delivered. Nestled in the woods of Makawao in the up country, it was the perfect choice. Bob and Sunny are delightful hosts -- they think of every detail to make the most of your stay. Close by is the town of Makawao with shopping and restaurants and also nearby is Paia on the Hana Highway. The cottage is also about an hour and half away from Haleakala.

Keep in mind that Makawao is in the up country so it gets more rain and the nights are cool.

Hi Dora & Emanuel, We loved having you two. Yes, you hit the "rainy season" on Maui, which was pretty much everywhere. Usually, if there is rain here it is in the evenings and sunny during the day. We just put in a little space heater to take the chill off when needed - wish we had thought of it when you were here :-) It was fun getting to know you and we hope to see you again one day.
Aloha,
Sunny & Bob

“Perfect central location with amazing hosts”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Ginger Falls was the perfect centrally located home base for our 12 day stay in Maui. It was convenient to visit all of the areas that we were interested in, Hana Highway, Haleakala, beaches in the south and west of Maui and the interesting little town of Paia.
Sunny and Bob are amazing hosts, they helped make our stay in Maui exceptional with suggestions and tips for eating out and places to visit. Go to the Paia Fish Market! We appreciated the private restful location to get away from the busier areas of Maui. It was so nice to have a homey place to stay that was away from the commercial/touristy parts of the island.
The rental is very nicely put together and had everything we needed for our stay. The pictures online are accurate for the rental, it really is this nice! We especially appreciated the breakfast items left for us, fresh eggs from the chickens! :)

“Rest and relaxation”
Reviewed 21 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We spent 9 nights at Ginger Falls in December, and it was a delightful stay. Bob and Sunny are charming and friendly; they went out of their way to be sure we had everything we needed, we were presented with a pound of coffee they grew, picked and roasted, and on Christmas morning we awoke to a lovely gift "from Santa".

The cottage was furnished tastefully and comfortably. We didn't cook much but the kitchen was well equipped…nice touch to have mini-fridges in the kitchen AND the bedroom…and the shower was a work of art. Such a nice touch to have a large screened-in lanai complete with jacuzzi!

It was a wonderfully relaxing stay. Thanks again, Bob and Sunny!
