One of our Maui B&B suites gets a new shower stall!

This shower remodel at our Maui Bed and Breakfast was unveiled on August 8th (earlier this month).

Concrete and Slate Shower Stall

New slate and concrete shower stall unveiled in August!

Although the original shower stall at our bed and breakfast in maui, was made by Jim just three years ago, and was relatively new, we were not pleased with the floor of the shower stall and realized the concrete was just too porous for a shower floor.

The original shower stall was made three years ago.

In this picture, you can see where the original shower with the stained concrete base did not show as well as we had hoped after only three years of life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Earlier this month, in the hot Maui sun, Jim remodeled the shower stall in one of our B&B Maui suites to include the colorful slate our bathrooms are known for here at Maui What A Wonderful World, Bed and Breakfast. He removed the concrete shower stall base. He added slate to the floor and one wall of the shower

At the same time, he made the shower window a bit smaller to give more privacy while maintaining airflow through the bathroom and ultimately the entire suite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new shower stall is now similar to the rest of our Bed and Breakfast Maui property.

Maui Nui: a great golf experience for the Maui Bed and Breakfast Guest

Kihei, the town home of Maui What A Wonderful World Bed and Breakfast, is known for beautiful beaches and beach activities, but some people come for the Golf. Wailea and Kihei known as “The South Side” of Maui have many beautiful golf courses and quite a few are within minutes of this Maui Bed and Breakfast. The game of golf has become a pricey hobby but just minutes from the front door of your suite at this Bed and Breakfast Inn is a great course, with beautiful greens and even better views and best of all,very reasonable rates year round.

 

Maui Nui Flag

Jim and I frequent the driving range of Maui Nui Golf Course with our 2 and a half year old grandson. We have yet to find a time when we can’t find at least one open spot. We can spend hours here just practicing our swings.

From the driving range we start our 18 hole maui golf experience on this side of our beautiful island of maui. The course is an easy play and a great way to spend an afternoon. Prices drop significantly after 2pm and in the summer you can walk the course after 3pm for super great rates. Most guests can golf for $80 or less year round. This rate includes the cart. There are courses with even better views and more eleborate markers and carts than Maui Nui, but with the great rates at Maui Nui, it is a locals favorite.

Kono’s Restaurant at the club house of the course has great sushi, steak, and seafood. We have had some very good salads here. Sunday nights are reserved for Jazz and they usually require a cover charge. Any other night is open. The restaurant sits at the top of the 1st hole and the bottom of the 9th. It s great for starters or to grab something quick to push you through back half. After 18 holes a great Ahi Steak is always a delight.

Maui’s 14 Mile is a short drive from this Bed and Breakfast on Maui

For the days when the Maui winds are a little more than gentle, 14 mile usually offers calm snorkeling waters and a nice resting spot.

This wonderful getaway beach is just a short 30 minutes from this Maui Bed and Breakfast. Getting there is easy but equally easy to miss. This beach is just before Olowalu Beach at the 14 mile marker on Hwy 30 to Lahiana.

When driving from Maalea to Lahaina. On the right hand side you will see the “14 mile” marker. Parking can be found on the opposite side of the street, right on the beach. Please be very careful, you will be crossing a very busy highway.

The beach here is surprising quiet even though the beach is extremely close to Hwy 30 on Maui. The pictures below were taken on a very typical Maui day.

Our favorite walk from Maui What A Wonderful World, B&B to our favorite South Maui beach

Jim and I take this walk on a daily basis from our bed and breakfast home to Keawakapu Beach. On the way to Keawakapu Beach you will be walking from our B&B through a typical South Maui neighborhood.

This South Maui Beach is perfect for snorkeling, boogie boarding on occasion and great for paddle boarding.

Most of the amenities you could hope for on a beach are offered here. Our Maui Bed and Breakfast provides you with beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, boogie boards, and floating noodles for your convenience. You can rent stand up paddle boards (SUP), snorkel gear, bikes, and surfboards at this beach which as you can see is a short 15-17 minute walk from your accommodations at Maui What A Wonderful World, Bed and Breakfast.

Zack’s store offers quick and easy snacks, cold drinks, and convenience items while Five Palms offers sit down dining and Patio seating.
