Stayed at 'What a Wonderful Word' for nine nights in the largest suite. Found the room clean, tidy, cosy and equipped with everything we needed. Very comfortable stay and felt very safe. Eva was an amazing hostess, who made us feel so welcome. She even went out of her way to arrange a reservation for us at the Goat Dairy,...

Eva was awesome in making me feel welcome, and helping me plan my stay. Really nice place with a great view of the ocean. Great breakfast and snacks in the room. Only negative is it's a ~20 minute walk to the beach and restaurants.

Sitting on my lanai amidst the ferns and palms, I am at peace. Ava is welcoming and by the end if our time, felt like a friend. The rooms are as advertised. They are clean. And did I mention my own lanai (deck).

Wonderful place to stay. They have a wonderful breakfast and apple bananas that are fantastic! they let you borrow beach towels/umbrellas/chairs and even use their washer/dryer. It was clean and the owners answered questions about the area and things to do. The bed/pillow were awesome and I have a bad back. kudos. Each room has it's own private entrance with...

The room was spacious and lovely. The price was right and the hospitality was superb and Eva is great fun. They let me shower in the p.m. before my red-eye flight, making travel much more comfortable!

What A Wonderful World was an amazing, relaxing place to spend a few days in Maui! We felt really welcome, and everything was neat, clean and well appointed with many places to sit and relax after a day of exploring. A lovely choice-rich breakfast was served on the covered lanai with the ocean in view. A rare bed and breakfast...

We stayed here for a week in February and fell in love with this place! We had a beautiful room-the Palm Room-which is away from the other rooms so it is very private. It is beautifully furnished including sunscreen, beach towels, beach chairs, etc... The breakfast was excellent. There is a view of the ocean and mountains while eating fresh...

Wow, what a great choice. We only spent one night here before heading to the airport and home;however, if I would have known how great it was, we would have stayed longer. While this property does not have a pool or beach, it has everything else. Although we stayed in one of the smaller units (Guava room) the use of...

This B and B is in a great location in a quiet community. We stayed in the Guava Room. This room is very private room at the back of the house. This room is quite dark with no view but for the time you spend in there, it is just fine. The bed was a bit squeaky. We were able...
