E komo mai! (Welcome! Come in!)
Our B&B is in a very quiet, safe,
residential neighborhood in south Maui where it only rains 15 inches per year. We are only
a 5-minute drive to the closest beach (Keawakapu Beach)
There are many reasons Conde Nast Traveler readers have named Maui the "Best Island in the World" 15 times.
For some it is the lure of championship golf courses, world-class shopping, hiking Mt. Haleakala (Maui's dormant volcano) or tropical rainforests, or discovering the beauty of the host Hawaiian culture. The world-class beaches, however, are the #1 reason people come to Maui and why so many return year after year, whether they come to sunbathe on white, black, or red sand, or snorkel, scuba dive, or surf in its warm, crystal blue waters. Underneath its waters lives a vast array of sea lifedolphins, turtles, whales, and fish in a kaleidoscope of colors. After a long day in the sun or surf, dine on fresh island cuisine on the beach at one of Maui's 4-star restaurants. While there are many amazing things that draw people here, one thing awaits allan island paradise that will never be forgotten.

All About Kihei
That which once drew Hawaiians to Kihei remains the areas most desirable attraction - the beaches and the ocean. The Kihei coast consists of one beach after another culminating with the fine if somewhat repetitive names of Kama'ole I, II and III. These beaches are anything but barren today as they used to be, as you'll see on almost any weekend. They are also some of the best lifeguarded beaches in Hawaii. Best of all when you exit almost any lodging in Kihei, the beach is right across the street.
One Kihei beach may be favored for swimming, another for body surfing or board surfing. Each one is wide, sandy and sunny - a perfect postcard, the quintessential tropical beach. A wonderful feature of this seaside town is its views of Kaho'olawe, Molokini, Lana'i and West Maui. From this vantage point, the West Maui Mountains appear to be a separate island, a mysterious Shangri La in the distance.
Kihei's Kalama Beach Park has shady lawns and palm trees dotting its 36-oceanfront acres. You often may find a great craft fair, music concerts and other fun events at this family park. Skateboarders will appreciate the skate park. There are also baseball fields, basketball courts, an in-line hockey rink, a picnic pavilion, and a nice children's play ground.
If shopping is high on your list, there are no fewer than ten shopping malls of varying sizes crammed in between Kihei's condominiums and hotels.
Eating out is never a problem in Kihei. While many visitors choose to cook their own meals in their condominium units, the town has a wide selection of restaurants from fast food and moderately priced chains to a number of upscale dining establishments featuring Hawaiian Regional and Pacific Rim cuisine. The fun doesn't stop with the setting sun. Kihei's nightlife includes dance clubs, karaoke spots and several sports bars.
In Kihei, anyone can enjoy the sunshine, surf and sand that are the hallmark of the area. Here once Hawaiians lived in scattered villages, fished the sea and maintained fishponds for royalty. Here Kamehameha I moored his war canoes during his conquest of Maui and accepted the first cattle brought to Hawaii from British explorer George Vancouver. Here today, budget-minded visitors make their base to explore the beauty of Maui, the Valley Isle.
