This is a gem of a property. It is not the most updated room on the planet. But, what it lacks in being the most modern facility, it more than makes up with the location. The room was very clean, and our view was fantastic. If you are looking for the most up to date, swanky lodging, this is probably not for you. If you want a great view, clean room, quiet surroundings, and convenience, this is the place.

The only thing nice was the location. It was dirty, warm, and sketchy looking. My motger stayed there and felt unsafe and couldn't sleep because of the upstairs noise. The place was overall dusty, stains on the couch, and water damage in the bathroom.

We got room 1 which was perfect for us. Right on the waters edge, with turtles bobbing up and down in the surf. Only thing that was annoying was that the aircon was very loud. Other than that, good walking distance to the main drag and also the a beautiful swimming beach.

The property was very quiet and peaceful but locately perfectly so that restaurants, grocery stores, and downtown Lahaina we're just minutes away. We could hear the ocean waves from our room and see a clear view of the sunset and moonrise. We even saw sea turtles on some mornings! Overall, a beautiful stay and would definitely come here again.

Great view of ocean and sunsets!! Our room came with a kitchen and the cooking tools needed to make meals which was great so we didn’t have to eat out every meal. The curtains on the windows are pretty thin, so if light bothers you / you like to sleep in, an eye mask would probably be needed. Property is walkable to all the restaurants and shops on Front St which was also a big plus! Walls are thin, so they do have a noise ordinance in place from 10pm to 7am, which we enjoyed so we could get some better sleep. Rooms are otherwise pretty basic, no tv in the room, but have everything else you might need.

I loved the location! Away from resorts and crowds. No TV, No Phone! Full stocked kitchen, view from room amazing, great ventilation. Nice to sleep with windows open, very safe feeling, lawn with chairs and sunset in front with turtles swimming everyday. Better than the pictures. Very old school feel, don't remodel. Keep it the way it is. Its close to everything, walking distance, but away from everybody. NO POOL with the noise that comes with it. Who needs a pool when the beach is right outside where you swim with fish and turtles and coral and crabs and water is so nice.
