After several years of vacationing on Maui, Tom Croly and Denise McKinnon moved here to open this bed-and-breakfast—a dream come true for both them and their guests. They offer a stand-alone cottage and two private suites in their house, which is centrally located in the Maui Meadows neighborhood, just a 5- to 10-minute drive from the shopping, restaurants, golf courses, and white-sand beaches of Kihei and Wailea. Each of the colorfully decorated suites has a private entrance and lanai, kitchenette, 42-inch TV, air-conditioning, and use of laundry facilities. Continental breakfasts are offered room-service style: Choose from the menu of freshly baked pastries, tropical fruits (mangoes right off of the tree), yogurts, and pop tarts. Hang your order on your door, and in the morning, it’ll be delivered at your chosen time. Rooms are a bit tight, but you’re free to use the oceanview deck, main living room, and outdoor cooking area. The cozy one-bedroom cottage has ocean views from several rooms, vaulted ceilings in the living room, wraparound decks, marble in the kitchen and bathroom, a private washer/dryer, and a computer with high-speed Internet. Tom is always on duty as a personal concierge, doling out beach equipment and suggestions for where to snorkel, shop, or eat dinner.
