We love when we get to host adventurous travelers who take advantage of all that Maui Beachside and this beautiful island has to offer!
Two of our guests, Xavier and Katie Ritzi (@xkflyaway), did exactly that. As travel photographers, they’re no stranger to navigating new places and getting some great shots while they’re at it.
You can also check out Xavier’s stunning black and white photography here @mi5ter_x.
We got to host the Ritzis back in April of 2018 and they were kind enough to not only share tons of great images from their trip, but their entire itinerary!
Now you can live the Maui Beachside life like a professional travel blogger!

Where They Stayed:
Here’s what else they had to say about each of our homes:
Maui Beachside 1
“Sunset from the patio”
“Stacey’s condo was probably the most beautiful we’ve ever seen. She pays such attention to detail & has everything you need. The patio facing the ocean was the best feature. Thanks again for the unforgettable stay, Stacey!”
Maui Beachside 2
“Felt like home”
“We absolutely loved this condo. The layout was great, beautiful decor & had everything we needed! Thanks again, Stacey & Asher.”
