Reviews: "The place was very easy to find, spacious and quiet. The hosts provided extra amenities such as a cooler bag, snacks, extra beach towels, umbrellas, which were very thoughtful."

"If you like to live in peace and quiet, then Tranquil Palms is for you. The name suits it perfectly. With lush tropical surroundings and views of the ocean, it is the perfect place to start and end the day on your Maui vacation. I like that it is located away from the tourists on the south and west shores, though still close enough to visit those locations should you choose to do so. The location is perfect. It reminds me of old Hawaii and is very relaxing.

I felt very private with my own entrance and double door privacy from upstairs. The patio is fully furnished and is a wonderful place to hang out pre or post activity.
I stayed in the primary bedroom in the Areca Suite. Very comfortable king-size bed with a view of the water! I had my coffee in bed every morning. It was so lovely and relaxing looking out through the lush yard to the ocean in the distance. There are a wide variety of tropical birds that visit the immaculate yard and are fun to observe as well as listen to their songs. The palms and fruit trees are gorgeous.

The amenities of the suite are impressive; the tidy kitchen is well-stocked with cooking utensils and crockery and it also has a vast array of picnic items and other supplies you will find super useful, tupperware, a day cooler, ice packs, assorted snacks, teas and coffee. They provide beach gear, i.e. high-quality Tommy Bahama chairs, large beach towels as well as assorted other gear for your use, so you are all set for going to the beach which is super convenient.

The other bedroom is a good size as well and also has views. It is on the opposite side of the flat from the other bedroom with the kitchen/living space between you, which gives you privacy from each other. Having a washer/dryer is a great perk, and they even provide detergent!

The bathroom is spacious, and the bathtub/shower has great pressure. Thoughtful touches abound in the Areca Suite, like the counter-top fan in the bathroom, the robes and slippers, the board games, the Maui sightseeing books and the suggestions in a thoughtfully prepared house book. The bedrooms and living space have overhead fans and those are nice on hot days. There are a/c units in the bedrooms, but I didn’t need a/c. I left the screened windows open at night and I was comfortable. The whole place is filled with light from the blanket of windows on the view facing side, yet you still retain your privacy without closing the drapes."

Where you’ll be

Haiku-Pauwela, Hawaii, United States

Areca Suite at Tranquil Palms is a peaceful, rural location to get away from crowds and enjoy nearby waterfalls, hiking and communing with nature, but still close to shops and restaurants. We're about 10-15 minutes to the nearest beaches (Hookipa, Baldwin, Sprecklesville), great restaurants and 20 minutes from Costco, Walmart and Target in Kahului. If you prefer the South/Central beaches of Kihei they are just a short 30-40 minute drive away.

We're perfectly placed near the start of "The Road to Hana" for you to explore. We're also well-placed for a day to visit Haleakala Crater.

The ocean views, the stunning scenery, the lush tropical foliage, the peace and quiet and the serene setting. Tranquil Palms is a special place and we're looking forward to sharing this very special place with you, our valued Guest.
