Clean, quiety, convenient location. Comfortable. Great swimming pool.
We will stay again on our next trip to Maui. Maureen was very helpful in all steps of the way for our stay.

Room Tip: All are wonderful. We especially liked that there was a room with just 2 stairs and opened right int...

The guesthouse is comfortable and quiet. Wailuku is centrally located on Maui and made it easy to take day trips anywhere on the island. We stayed in the Garden Ohana. The rooms are large and we found everything that we needed to prepare our meals. Coolers, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels and umbrellas were available to take on our excursions around the island.

The pool and surrounding gardens are well maintained. The saltwater pool was wonderful. No burning eyes, dry skin or damaged hair and bathing suits. And best of all no chlorine smell. I spent may afternoons and evenings just relaxing in the pool area.

Maureen and her family made us feel at home. Her delicious breads were the perfect way to start the day. She was very aware of all of the guests and their needs, but never intrusive. The perfect host.
We will definately stay here again when we come to Maui.

Room Tip: Garden Ohana and Hibiscus rooms are at the back of the house facing the pool. Very nice.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2011

Me & my girlfriend stayed 5 nights at the Wailuku Guesthouse, in June 2011. The owners provided good infos by e-mail and we had no problem accessing our room (Plantation Room) even though we did not meet them, since it was late.

At first, the room was surprisingly small. Very small. We could barely walk around with our 2 luggages on the floor, and we had no space to tidy our clothes up... The owners provided a small book giving us some infos on how the guesthouse works, what we could borrow, what is in the area, and how to use the internet.

We almost had no interaction with the owners, excepted once when the lady came back from work/shopping, and we only interacted 2-3 minutes...

On the + Side:
- Easy to find
- Reliable Internet
- Small Attentions (Macaroons & Banana-Mango Bread given to us by the owner, left in our room during the day)
- AC works well
- Parking provided
- Bathtub & Shower
- Fridge, Coffee Maker & Microwave
- Location is good

On the minus side:
- Parking is tight
- Plantation Room is VERY small
- Doors: 3 doors to open to get to the rooms - The doors close automatically (springs) and the handle must be turned all the way around to open the doors, not easy with hands full, and furthermore, not a lot of space to do so.
- The bed was really soft, worn out...
- Cleaning in bathroom was so-so... Some hair on the floor and in drawers...

We give it a 3. We paid an average of $101/night for our 5-night stay.

Room Tip: Don't be overweight if you sleep in the Plantation Room

My husband and I stayed at the Wailuku Guesthouse this July. We were looking for affordable accomodations, as our stay on the island was 2 weeks long, and we hopped around from place to place. We stayed in the Hibiscus room, and it was perfect for our needs. The pool and patio were awesome, as well as the hospitality and atmosphere! It was a great location on the island, nice and quiet, yet provided easy access to all the sights we wanted to see. We hope to return to the island w/our children someday, and will definitely stay here again!!

We were warmly welcomed by Maureen. with freshly made banada bread and macaroons. She and her husband have several rooms and a beautiful deck with a salt water pool. The bedroom was cozy.and clean. It was great to have a resouce book with recommended restaurants. We fell in love with Cafe au Lei.
