Repeat guests here adore hostess Eva Tantillo, whose years of experience in the travel industry shows in thoughtful touches around her lovely property. Every unit is lovingly furnished with hardwood floors, Hawaiian quilts, and luxurious slate showers. The Guava Suite is smallest and a little dark for my taste. The Papaya Suite, with its spacious living room, bathroom, and separate bedroom, is just right. Eva serves continental breakfast on the lanai, with views of the ocean, West Maui Mountains, and Haleakala. You’re also welcome to use the full kitchen or barbecue. For movie nights, the common area has a gigantic TV and a fancy popcorn maker. This elegant B&B is centrally located in a residential Kihei neighborhood—next door to Two Mermaids—about a half-mile from Kamaole III Beach Park and 5 minutes from Wailea’s golf courses, shopping, and restaurants. Bonus: no minimum stay or cleaning fee; cash discount.
