We are ready to welcome you with Aloha to Hawaii, the Happiest State of 2020. It's been a hard year, and Hawaii is the perfect destination for respite, relaxation, and happiness! As you can imagine, Maui is exceptionally beautiful right now and has flourished while the island was closed to travelers earlier this year. Beaches are pristine and the ocean clarity is astounding. We know that you'll love staying with us during this quieter time. With a pre-arrival negative COVID-19 test, you can bypass the 14-day quarantine and be one of the first to enjoy Maui's empty beaches.
Get Happy. Travel with Peace of Mind.

Please click on the Testimonials link to read the many effusive and very positive guest comments such as...
"We had a fantastic time in your beautiful home, pool, beach, hot tub, whales, snorkeling. We did it all. Your home is so comfortable to stay in. Only one problem with a place this spectacular - time flies by."
"Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. It looked wonderful online and is even more wonderful in person. It was paradise. A very big thank you to everyone" .
"From the moment we inquired about the property till the moment we left the level of service has been outstanding."
"Dear Owner, Thank you so much for providing us with such a beautiful backdrop for our family vacation. We don't want to leave. In fact the men are out on the patio 10 minutes to departure cold drinks in hand, refusing to leave. It was so wonderful to feel we could just relax here at the house rather than spend our entire vacation running around looking for excursions. Everyone found peaceful corners in the house to find solitude and yet the rooms were large enough for the whole group to gather in. We loved the kitchen and I think we will all be sad to go home to our smaller and less fancy kitchens. Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was an absolute dream."
"We are feeling very sad as we prepare to leave your little piece of paradise today. We are from Indiana where a water view consists of the Ohio River. We love your home. You thought of everything in the kitchen. We love to cook and spent a lot of time doing so with the help of your perfectly stocked facility. The pool area is gorgeous. We felt like we were swimming in a hidden lagoon. The great beach access made it easy for us to go our separate ways when in the mood. Thanks for the books, the Hawaiian bath products, the music, beach equipment, tiki torches, hammock, and on and on. Heaven on earth!!".

The great room of Sea Shells Beach House opens to the outdoor patio and pool and has cathedral ceilings with two lounging areas in addition to an entertainment center with iPod dock, CD surround sound, DVD, VCR and new flat panel LCD television with premium channels, digital reception and Apple TV 4K.
