Stayed overnight at the Yoga Studio room booked through Spyglass. Very unique and cool room! Poni was very friendly. We found the room to be clean and the view out the huge round window was fun. Quirky stuff included the private bath that was outside and didn't have glass in the windows (had a bamboo shade) and the concrete sink out the back door for washing dishes. We liked it! Know, though, that there are bugs in the bathroom (two huge cane spiders, etc) because this is next to a cane field and there is no glass. That doesn't bother us, the spiders don't chase you and they are kind of interesting. There are also geckos, etc. Again, doesn't bother us - just something to be aware of. The two things we would have suggested, though, were having soap on hand for guests and having air conditioning. We were hot when we shut the doors and tried to sleep - even with the ceiling fan on. If you have a spirit of adventure and you like quirky, this is a great place to consider.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Spyglass Maui Rentals are two, well cared for homes, right next door to each other, in the middle of all of the North Shore beaches and less than a mile from Paia town, in a local, residential neighborhood. The closest beach access is a 5 minute walk away. The houses are owned by a two good friends and long time Maui residents, Liam McCormick and Poni Brendan, who call themselves family. Our on-sight manager, Sabrina, and full time housekeeper, Patti are here to assist you. The rentals are clean, comfortable and will make you feel like you are spending time in a "home away from home" rather than in a resort hotel. The Gingerbread House, at the rear of the property, is a very unique, two story, one bedroom house with a lanai off the second floor bedroom and an outdoor patio on the ground level. It has a jetted tub in the first floor bathroom. The Green Turtle House can be rented as a ONE or TWO bedroom house and can accommodate up to 6 guests when rented as a TWO bedroom. In our older reviews and on Google there is mention of the Bicycle Inn/House and the beachfront "Spyglass House". These are no longer our properties. The Gingerbread House and Green Turtle House have been under new management since the fall of 2014. The most current reviews of our properties can be found on Airbnb and VRBO. In our rentals, we try to provide everything that you will need to enjoy your vacation and leave your cares at home. Our focus is to create a lovely environment so that our guests can have a wonderful base from which to enjoy their vacation and explore all that is beautiful and special about Maui. Please contact us if you need additional information or have specific questions. During your stay, we are on-site and happy to help. Mahalo! ... more less
