Our Story: Behind the Launch of Maui Beachside

Aloha!

Welcome to the brand new online home of Maui Beachside. We own two fully renovated vacation rental properties that are centrally located in the heart of South Maui, right on the ocean!

We have always loved sharing our properties with travelers celebrating occasions of all kinds, and are so glad that we can now share more about it with you here!

How It Got Started

We live in Washington State and for over 10 years we have been involved with Seattle Humane, which rescues pets in need and connects them with families who will love them.

Many years ago, we won a Maui condo stay at their annual “Tuxes & Tails” fundraising gala.

Myself, my husband Ash, and our son Miles all love vacationing in warm places with sandy beaches, but upon our first visit, we knew Maui was different. It was special, and somewhere we knew we’d return to again and again.

I found myself flipping through the Tuxes & Tails auction booklets every year, but I did not find any other Maui condos.

So we started thinking…

We began looking for a place we loved, but that also could be an investment property. It had to be something we knew others would love, too!

When we came across MB1, it was obvious – who wouldn’t love watching turtles, whales, and sunsets from their own private lanai?!

We purchased our first one bedroom condo and poured ourselves into the renovations, down to every detail.

Before   &   After

We spent weeks staying there and fell more in love with Maui! We didn’t feel like a tourist in a hotel, but that we could really get comfortable, unwind, and take in everything about our picturesque surroundings.

Ash needs to get his kiteboarding fix, and I’m a big fan of beach yoga and the powder soft sandy beaches. Miles loves the pool, playing on the beach, eating “red balls” (what he calls poke), and most of all, getting shave ice from Ululani’s!

We spent a lot of time there, but as a family of 3, we knew more space was something we needed.

That’s how MB2 came to be! We renovated it in the same but slightly different fashion, and are so happy of the end result.

Making the Properties Available for Rent

We knew all of this was too good to keep to ourselves, so we wanted to spread the love and share our “Maui Beachside” properties (and this website!) with our family, friends, and guests – most of whom return and become our friends.

Since Seattle Humane is what first brought us to Maui, it’s also been really special to be able to give back through our properties and open them up to the auction winners.

Our properties are listed on Vrbo and Airbnb, where we have been named a Vrbo Premier Partner and an Airbnb Superhost.  Vrbo Premier Partners are owners and property managers who provide great traveler experiences.  The Airbnb Superhost program celebrates and rewards Airbnb’s top-rated and most experienced hosts.  Both of the properties are listed as Luxury Rental by HomeAway and as Airbnb PLUS homes.   

Maui can also be really expensive. Many hotel rooms with garden views can have rates of 1K+ before taxes and fees. We wanted to create a place that felt luxurious without the high-reaching price tag for our guests.

The MB Tailored Stay

People go to Maui to celebrate, and we want to help make their experience more memorable than just another hotel or a “bed to sleep in.”  We provide so much more than that! (I like to call it “The MB Tailored Stay”).

Not to mention, most other rental homes are managed by big management companies, who don’t provide the same communication, care, and attention to serving their guests as we do. At MB, you’re always talking to me (Stacey!), although we do also provide a 24-hour emergency back-up, so you’re always covered.

Both properties offer endless activities and adventures. You can make most of your own meals in our fully equipped kitchens, or you can enjoy Kihei’s convenient casual dining options a short walk away.

Our properties are thoughtfully tailored, modern and stylish. But don’t worry…sandy feet are always welcome!

Connecting With Our Guests

I truly love being social and hearing about my guest’s adventures, favorite restaurants, and seeing their photos. You can follow along on Instagram and be inspired by some of our recent guests, including Xavier & Katie of @xkflyaway.  Get their full itinerary, Maui favorites, and more on this blog!

I’ve been surprised by how much joy I feel when our guests tell me what a wonderful vacation, honeymoon, babymoon, or anniversary they had and the personal touches they experienced throughout their stay.

I’m constantly updating our signature “Guest Welcome” book with everything we’ve discovered and love about Maui over the years. Consider it your personal guide!  

It is also my pleasure to provide additional personalized recommendations to suit your specific interests.

We would love to hear from you and hope to host you and your loved ones for a celebratory stay in the very near future. Come live the #MauiBeachside life!

🌺 Mahalo,

Stacey, Asher & Miles
