Hi, I’m Sarah
I lost my heart in Hawaii a long time ago and I’ve been returning regularly ever since.
But I’m not the kind of traveler who returns to the same accommodation or location time and time again. Instead, I always stay in a different area to soak in its own unique atmosphere and discover its couleur locale.
After every trip, I return with a list of properties that caught my eye. I then research them and add them to a shortlist for my next trip. And now I’m sharing my personal wish lists with other Maui (and Hawaii) enthusiasts like yourself.
Helping you find that perfect place to stay in Maui
As a former luxury hotel professional and bespoke event planner, I know a thing or two about choosing the right accommodation.
Luxury travel is what I love most but I’m pretty frugal by nature so value for money is what I’m after. I usually travel to Hawaii with my husband and two amazing teenage daughters but some occasions call for a romantic couple’s trip.
As a result, my hand-picked selection of places to stay in Maui comprises a balanced mix of romantic resorts, family-friendly holiday homes, dreamy villas, and cozy condos.
the Pono pledge
To me, Hawaii is more than just a travel destination, it’s a home away from home. That’s why I adhere to the principles of the Pono Pledge and I hope you do too. Mahalo!
It may have been designed with Hawaiʻi Island in mind but, to me, it applies to all Hawaiian islands including Maui.
I recognize that Her Majesty Queen Lili‘uokalani yielded the Hawaiian Kingdom and these territories under duress and protest to the United States to avoid the bloodshed of her people.
Furthermore, I recognize that Hawai‘i remains an illegally occupied state of America. I feel grateful to be welcomed by the people of Hawaii and to be given the opportunity to experience the beauty of the Hawaiian islands.
From a linguistic perspective, I fully support the right of Hawai‘i to preserve, use, and support its indigenous language known as ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i. I also recognize the significance and the value of the linguistic ‘okina and kahakō markings in the written Hawaiian language.
However, because I don’t master the language sufficiently myself and because this site depends on online searches by an audience who doesn’t master it sufficiently either, I’ll be reverting to the simplified version without diacritical markings on this website.
