The state of Hawaii department of Tax requires that BNB operations collect a 13.42% 'Transient Tax'.
You can pay this any time after check in using cash or personal check in US Dollars.

Guest access

Please note, there is NO kitchen use. Too many bad experiences with guests either banging around in the kitchen at 2:00am cooking breakfast before heading out to watch the sunrise and/or not washing their dishes, or cleaning the grease off the stove after cooking.
However, I have put together a wonderful guest book which gives you many options for cheap savory eats around town...:)

Interaction with guests

I typically don't interact too much with guests as I'm usually not home...and if I am, I'm quietly working at home at my desk. However, if we happen to cross paths, I'm more than happy to answer questions or give advice on dining, activities etc.

Kym is a very nice host. She made everything to make us comfortable. She provided us everything we needed such as beach towel, sunscreen, shampoo etc...The room was big and great. Probably my best Airbnb experience so far and I'll of course recommend it to everybody.

My wife and I really love Kym's place. We stay in the purple room. Her beautiful house located in quite neighborhood and really close to the shopping mall, restaurant, and bar. She were really helpful and thoughtful. I love how she prepared a full manual for you to read and learn about Maui and recommend some great place for you to visit and enjoy. We really enjoy our stay and highly recommend for everyone who's looking a beautiful place to stay.

This is a good starting location if you want to get around the island. The room is spotless, everything is nicely arranged, the bed is super comfortable, the shower pressure is ok, towels and beach towels are provided for, also a set of snorkel gear, sun block and various other accommodating items are provided by Kym. Essentially this was my hub to come back to after a day of travel and adventure. I can only recommend Kym – she is a wonderful host and very accommodating. The only thing I have missed was air condition but Kym provides a ceiling and standing fan which helped to deal with the heat. Other than that everything was just like hotel service. Thanks again for having me!!! All smiles, Mavişim***

Kym was so accommodating and responsive to all our needs, even late at night when I locked our keys inside my room!! She was so helpful! Highly recommend. Would definitely come back, the location and host were awesome! Aloha ! Crystal and Jan

Kym's house is a very friendly and welcoming place. Our room was bright and clean. There are many restaurants and shops nearby. Great place to stay, hardly recommended.

I opted for Kym's basic room that shares a bath with another room that has a deck. She has a third room that is more of a suite. The home is in a nice residential setting and it's really a lovely home. The back yard is inviting and I did relax out there a few times read and did some computer work. Kym is very relational, sharp and while she runs a "tight and tidy ship", I found her to be very gracious and relational.

Kym User Profile

I grew up on Oahu, and moved to Maui in 1986. Over the years my family has moved here as well and currently, we all reside in Kihei and live within a ten minute driving radius of each other. My sister and mom often come over for early morning coffee. While I am not a coffee drinker, I do love the smell of it in the morning...:)
All genre's of music are of interest to me, so when I am home Pandora is the go to 'station'.
I am a very busy working single mom, typically home later in the afternoon/evening, and in bed by 10:00pm. Independent Travelers, or those that do not require too much attention are best in my home. In my free time I love hiking, movies, writing, surfing (long board), family time, or just taking a mid day nap can be a real!

This is where I put down five 'Things' I can't live without:
-Medi -Spa Maui - Gerusa's amazing facials
-Salad Bar at Hawaiian Moons Health Food Store
-Matinee's at Maui Mall...great place to escape the heat
-Romantic dinners at Kula Lodge
-Weekly massage & pedicure at Pedicare in Kihei

Actually I can live without any 'thing'...its the experiences and people in my life that make it extraordinary.

So if you are a independent type of traveler whom values their privacy and does not need or want a lot of attention from myself, and is looking for a clean, comfortable private room to crash in after a wonderful day of exploring Maui, my home is a great fit. Also for those who are on a budget and do not want to rent a vehicle, it is a good fit, as your within a 10-20 minute walking distance of everything from dining, shopping, nightlife, parks, tennis/basketball courts, library, beaches, grocery store, coffee shops, surf school, bike & moped rentals and bus stops.
