The studio was as described - good amount of space and conveniently located near Paia where there are a lot of great restaurants, grocery stores and shops. It’s also a great starting point for Road to Hana! Stefano was very responsive and easy to communicate with. Thanks for host…

Stefano's place was simple and exactly what we were looking for. It's the perfect place to rest your head at night after a long day of adventuring. The location was also really nice. Paia is just down the road and has a lot to offer so we never went hungry. Thanks to Stefano for …

This place was basic, but had everything we needed. The house was a bit noisey as you could hear the neighbors on the second floor, but that didn't bother us much. A car is recommended, but it was a good location for our trips to Paia, Haleakala summit, and road to Hana.

Stefano's place was exactly as advertised. It was plenty of space for my wife and I and was in a great location for us to enjoy our first trip to Maui. We made great use of the kitchen and enjoyed relaxing on the lanai. Its central location made it easy for us to explore all p…

Stefano was a great host and answered any questions we had pretty much immediately. The studio is nice and cozy and had all amenities we needed. The kitchen is equipped with basic utensils and we cooked pretty much daily. The Haiku neighborhood has a few restaurants and a super…

There wasn't much interaction with the host but the directions were quite clear and when we needed something, Stefano was able to be reached by email. The location was great as there were restaurants, beaches, and turtle resting spots nearby. The only issue we had was with the sh…

We stayed on the 1st floor of the unit without garage, I believe 52D. It wasn't awful, but definitely won't recommend it, and overall we feel bummed about our choice to stay there. Biggest complaints are: - it's VERY noisy. You can hear every little move and sound from upstairs,…

Response from Stefano:
Thanks for taking the time to let me us know about your experience at Puukoa. I am sorry you were so disappointed. In 13 years, I have never had a review with as many issues as you reported. Please remember that you came to Maui during the busiest time of the year with the highest occupancy rates on the island for tourists and also the time when friends and family get together to celebrate the holidays. I think part of the noise you refer to may have been for that reason. You are right, the location of Puukoa is in a residential area. It's in cul de sac and in as safe and quiet area where people actually live. It is advertised as a vacation rental--not a resort on the beach. The town of Haiku is three minutes away with shops and plenty of restaurants and Hookipa Beach Park is five minute drive away--so I am not sure why you think it's so inconvenient. There is a map and description on this site so that people know its exact location before they book and can decide if it suits their needs. As far as humidity, Haiku is located in the northeast side of the island (Hana side) and is known as the rainy side--especially during this season. The week you came, it rained an excessive amount. The hand soap is good idea. The logic of not providing it is Puukoa is not classified as a hotel or bed and breakfast with daily room service. As far as price, the daily base rate for the studio is $95 per night--it's one least expensive vacation rentals on the island. The lodging taxes are 13.42%-- we can't do anything about that. As far as picking up the tax from your apartment, I usually wait until the guests departure because I prefer to give the guests privacy and trust that the taxes will be paid as per the agreement.
