... the reef. Many familiar fish including a large porcupine puffer but no turtles. I guess they don't want us to leave just yet,
Later we went to Merrimans at Kapulua for our finale dinner, This was an amazing four course feast overlooking Kapalua bay and the magnificent sunset. A great way to draw our vacation in paradise to a close.

This has been our earliest start, down stairs for a pick up at 6.40am. I had purchased sea sickness tablets that have been recommended, here's hoping. Our adventure started as soon as we stepped onto "The Pride", with a Island style breakfast. Cruised for about an hour to reach Molokini.

Historical Traveler Reviews Wai Ola Vacation Paradise Lahaina
We've just returned from a week's stay in Maui, the first two nights of which we spent at the Wai Ola Vacation Paradise's Malanai suite. Hands down, it was our favorite place to stay on the island.
We just returned from staying a memorable week at Waiola Vacation Paradise! Waiola is a luxurious accommodation for those hoping to experience Maui "off the beaten path." Our trip was truly a dream vacation! Our group of 11 rented the entire house, however Waiola can easily accommodate smaller groups. The space was perfect, immaculately clean, and tastefully decorated. The view of sunset over the ocean from our porch was truly spectacular! Our kids frolicked in the pool and jacuzzi before (and after!) our daytime adventures. Numerous activities are conveniently located nearby. The kindness and hospitality of our host & hostess, Jim & Kim, made our visit extra special! They thoughtfully included all the little touches made our stay extraordinary! They welcomed us with delicious home baked goodies. Extra towels, coolers, beach chairs and umbrellas for our day trips were graciously provided. Jim & Kim also made available maps and directions to help us easily navigate our way around the island. I know we will cherish their warmth, thoughtfulness, and friendship for a long time to come! If you long to experience Hawaii, without a zillion other tourists, you'll want to stay at Waiola Vacation Paradise. Your hosts: Kim & Jim
I stayed at the Wai Ola over the weekend and want to share what a nice experience it was. I've used Trip Advisor for several years and trust in the feedback that others have given and would like to return the favor.
After a few days at this lovely vacation rental in West Maui, we felt like we'd been vacationing for months. The owners, Kim and Jim, were so friendly and really made us feel at home, right down to use of their beach umbrellas, coolers, laundry, barbecue grills, and even their discount card at Safeway.
Paradise on earth!
Wai Ola brought the best of all worlds to our vacation in paradise. Jim and Kim, assisted by helping us make the most of our short time in paradise along with providing all of the comforts of home. Many of their suggestions took us to places that average tourist can only dream of let alone be apart of first hand. Where else can you wake-up to fresh ground Hawaiian coffee, flowers, beautiful views and more. We actually saw Whale in the harbor from the Wai Ola. An affordable, comfortable home away from home, we long to be there again very, very soon!
My wife and I stayed at the WAI OLA, and took advantage of the honeymoon package. The honeymoon cottage is a charming one bed-room cottage. The bed is by far one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on. In the morning you will awken to the sounds of chirping birds (as opposed to car horns and yelling, one awakens to in Chicago). The bathroom has a giant heart shaped jacuzi, which is great, becuse going to the beach can make one really tired! Best of all there is a pool and hot tub right outside the front door to the cottage. We even had a great time doing our laundry, right behind the pool. The owners Kim and Jim will ensure that every detail is taken care of. I had very high expectations of the WAI OLA after reading all the wonderful reviews, and my expectations were exceeded. I would highly reccomend that you stay the the WAI OLA!
We stayed at the Wai Ola in Early September in 2004. The new owners are actually Jim and Kim. I think they have just taken over from Julie. It was a great time. I encourage people to see their website: --------------------. We stayed at the Makai apartment. The place was very clean and someone came in to clean it everyday while we were out. Kim and Jim were quite helpful with giving us tips on what to do. The great thing was that our room had a full size kitchen. And the bed and breakfast had lawnchairs, umbrellas, coolers etc for a day at the beach. It made the place a great base of operations. All the rooms had Air conditioners and fans. So, in general it was a perfect place to come to after a day of the beach.
I have stayed at Wai Ola twice, once with my son and the second time, with both my husband and son. We found the place no less than magical. Julie, the owner, makes you feel as if you are her best friend and welcome to stay forever. The home is beautiful, well maintained, and containing special touches. Fresh fruit basket. Fresh flowers. Games and extra bedding in the closet. Washer and dryer right there to keep your clothes nice. Pool outside the door. Books and magazines. Hand held shower in the beautifully done bath. The neighborhood is so safe, locking your door is not necessary. My dream is to win the lottery and buy Wai Ola for myself!!
Booked my honeymoon on November 22 and paid for the room in its entirety. On April 7th (one week before we departed), WaiOla contacted us saying that the owners had decided to stay and we no longer had a room. Did not apologize at all or offer any suggestions for alternative resorts. Their only offer was an apartment in the resort with no view for its normal price, but the offered to put flowers in our room...wasn't that nice of them! Needless to say we did not stay at Wai-Ola!
