Welcome to Heart Song Studio, the perfect landing pad for adventurers in paradise. Live closely with the locals right outside of town in our fun, simple yet complete accommodation. We encourage you to read our reviews so you know just what to expect :-) We'd love to have you!

The space

This is a spacious and breezy studio apartment in an old plantation home in west Maui, just one mile uphill from the famous Front St. and surrounding beaches/activities. At Heart Song Studio we provide a no frills, authentic Maui experience for seekers of what lies beyond the resort atmosphere, true island living.

The space is charming and airy; the outside facing walls are almost all windows, with curtains for privacy. You will hear the birds singing, geckos chirping, and the occasional rooster crow from the neighbors' yard.

The kitchenette includes a full size refrigerator that is usually stocked with up to date condiments from previous guests, a filtered water pitcher (no need to buy bottled water!), microwave, two burner hot plate, french press and electric water heater for coffee, cooking supplies, plates, utensils, etc.

The sectional couch is good sized and has slept many extra guests comfortably. We are happy to provide extra linens for additional guests. There is a dining table inside and outside, clothes dresser, a place to hang clothes, and a soft cozy queen sized bed that looks right out towards the ocean.

We DO NOT have air conditioning, but we provide three fans that offer substantial air circulation. If you are someone who does not like hot weather and needs AC, do not come during the summer! The space is television free - most guests travel with their laptops and already have access to their favorite entertainment, which you can easily connect to with our free wifi.

The bathroom has a concrete shower painted with an underwater ocean scene, and has body wash and shampoo. The bathroom sink is a laundry basin style, perfectly functioning and adds to that funky island charm ;-) Bath towels, wash cloths, and beach towels are provided as well.

If all of this sounds like your perfect Maui getaway, book with us today! Our sweet natured hound dog, T Bone, would love to meet you!

Guest access

The Heart Song unit is facing the ocean, cannot be seen from the road, and is accessed through the open garage area that leads you to the back of the house. You are welcome to use the yard space and the picnic table in front of your unit.

Parking: The driveway is reserved for the residents of the house. There is usually plenty of street parking to the right of the house if you're facing the road. Please try and use the two spots directly in front of the yard first :-)

Laundry: The residents that live in the other three units of the house share a washer/dryer located outside. Just ask and we'll show you where to go. Laundry detergent is stored under your kitchen sink if you need to do a load.

Interaction with guests

Will and I live directly next door and are happy to give advice on any activities or dining options you may be curious about. We've enjoyed great conversations with our visitors from around the world, but if its privacy you're looking for, we have no problem with you keeping to yourself :-)

Other things to note

The open air style of this accommodation is refreshing to most, but some find that is takes away from the privacy. The main large window has a mirror tint so you can see out but not in. The rest of the windows are slatted, so while the curtains block out sight, you may still hear neighbors walking by and chatting outside.

Maui is a tropical island, and if you have traveled in the tropics before, you'll understand that it is commonplace to see geckos, moths, small bugs etc. here and there. If you keep your door open, these things are more likely to come in. Its a good idea to keep food items sealed so as not to attract critters. An aerosol can of bug killer is stored under the kitchen sink if you find any unwelcome visitors.

You must also acknowledge
Potential for noise - The windows to the studio are slatted, so outside noise is typical. You are likely to hear neighbors shuffling by or conversating in the driveway.
Pet(s) live on property - T Bone is a 12 year old hound dog. Very gentle and quiet. If you leave your door propped open, he may come say Hi and sniff around ;-)
No parking on property - The driveway is reserved for residents. Please try to park in one of the two dirt spaces directly in front of the yard, or downhill from the house.

I enjoyed to stay in this lovely Airbnb. In a quiet residential area I could relax from my activities along the coast. This authentic, clean and roomy Airbnb was definetely the better option then to stay in one of the resorts. I'm grateful for this experience and would be happy to stay there again. Aloha & Mahalo from Kaua'i!

We enjoyed our 3 day visit here very much. Jessica did a great job of describing the place. Cause it is exactly that. So if you are looking for a place that let's you see how the locals live here, you have found it. Just enjoy.

I had a lovely stay, I loved having a self contained private bathroom, private retreat to come home to after busy days scuba diving. As a solo traveller it gave me privacy at value for money cost. The trade off is that it's a little out of the popular part of town, but hiring a scooter or bicycle solves that. If you opt for a bicycle be aware of the hill, a bit of a workout. I loved the green credentials of recycling and fans as opposed to aircon too. I felt like I was part of the island.

Jessica and Will were both very welcoming, and they really made an effort to introduce themselves. While we didn't spend a lot of time together, they seemed very kind and open to questions about things to do while in Maui. The house is nicely placed near The main thoroughfare in Lahaina, and close enough to major roads to do most things on the rest of the island as well.
