What a fantastic place! Jackie and Larry have a small slice of paradise right on the beach. We stayed in the Hibiscus suite, very roomy, comfortable bed, stocked kitchen. We used the gas grill several evenings as well. Secluded place, but easy access to shops and the main road to visit the rest of the island. Nice breezes but aircon if you need it. They have a stock of beach supplies for use, and the washer dryer was handy. A short stroll down the path, and you are on the beach, which is beautiful. If we get back to Maui we will definitely stay here

This is our second stay at Dolphin Point and we have 4 weeks booked for Nov/Dec 2022. We are an active beach, ocean sports family and finding the Dolphin Point is like a dream come true! The rooms are well maintained and appointed with the Hibiscus being the nicest if you only need a one bedroom. It is also extra well suited to those who like to leave their window open at night and listen to the waves as it’s bedroom is the front most ocean facing. The property is the gem! You come through the gate and enter another world of privacy and beach access. I was literally steps to the water to drop my canoe in and go for a paddle. My children and grandchildren would spend hours on one of the nicest beaches Maui has to offer then walk a minute on the path to the house. A special note for Jackie the owner. She is kind of like a vacation Ninja, taking care of chores around the property without imposing on your family activities. She will find a non interfering time to have a quick chat and tend to your needs. A special lady.

A bit of Dolphins Point magic with my grandchildren on their last day. We paddled our canoe out front of the property and encountered turtles and a rare sighting of a Manta-Ray which swam right underneath our boat. Love this place.

Retirement vacation, extended stay. Jackie, the owner/host made me feel very welcome when I had a last minute request for an extended four more nights here in the island in Kihei. Beautiful ocean front accommodations, gracious hosts, everything you want and more, including snorkel gear At no extra cost. A very safe and friendly atmosphere and most accommodating.

This is our third stay and it will be our go-to forevermore when we are in HI. The location is perfect...We walk to almost everything. The suites are very comfortable, air conditioned and current. All on the beach level. We have stayed in the Plumeria and Hibiscus suites over the years and our family members also stayed in Ginger. Full service kitchen and spacious baths. Literally steps to the beach! If you don't want the sand, we have enjoyed the lanai...complete with shade, tables and a grill! The owners live on site, making sure your needs are met! LOVE IT!

Anytime we come to Maui, we stay at Dolphin point! The hosts are amazing. They're there whenever you need them but invisible when you don't. The units are spotless and WELL stocked! And you CAN'T BEAT THE LOCATION! You literally step off the grass of the property and onto the sand! I love it here and will be back soon!

Two bdr suite was perfect for couple and two teenaged boys. You cannot beat the location, accommodations, and hospitality. Thanks to Jackie. Everything you need is onsite or within walking distance... including beach gear, W/D, ABC, restaurants, food truck and... don't miss it...Gus' shave ice.

The location is perfect! Literally 10 steps to the beach! Jackie and Larry are wonderful hosts! We stayed in the Plumeria 2 bedroom, 2 bath. Super clean and includes everything you'll need for your stay. Close to great restaurants, and activities. Watched the whales right from our beach! I hesitated to write this review as I didnt want to let the rest of the world know about this gem. Cant wait to go back!

Great place, great location, great hosts Jackie and Larry . Been here six times. This place has just about everything you need for your stay. Around 80 steps to the ocean. 20 min from the airport. Beatiful sunsets.

This is a wonderful property ideally located for all activities on Maui. You could not ask for better access to the beach and there is all the beach gear you could possibly need provided on property. The owners, Jackie and Larry, are wonderful people who are there to help you and also leave you alone to relax and enjoy their amazing home and grounds. The units provide you with all you could possibly need for a wonderful vacation including access to a washer and dryer. We slept every night listening to the ocean. For the price Dolphin's Point is truly an amazing find and we will stay there again on a return trip to Maui!

We spent two wonderful weeks at Dolphins Point over Christmas and New Year"s . The location of Dolphins Point is ideal! It's just steps from the soft, golden sands of the beach at Kamaole I and in the center of Kihei with easy access to restaurants and shops. It's also not far to visit some of the other sights on the island. Lahaina, Wailea, Makena Beach are just a short drive away.
We stayed in the Plumeria suite which was perfect for our family of six. The spacious suite had everything we needed to make it our "home away from home." The kitchen was fully equipped so that we could cook when we didn't feel like going out to a restaurant. Its situation in Kihei meant we were just a short walk or drive to a market to get our supplies. We loved being able to barbeque our dinner while enjoying the sunset and listening to the surf. We also had everything we needed for a fun day at the beach. Beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, all sorts of shovels and pails for building sand castles were all provided.
Our typical day started with an early morning walk, breakfast, then set up our chairs on the beach for some serious sun-tanning and playing in the surf. We would take a break for lunch in our suite then back to the beach for more fun in the sun. At the end of the day we would watch the incredible sunsets! Each one different from the day before! Several days we were treated to a show of whales playing just off shore before the sun slipped into the sea!
If you are looking for a little bit of Paradise, Dolphins Point may be exactly what you're looking for. It was for us!

The 2 Bedroom comes with 2 private bedrooms (with doors). It also includes 2 bathrooms (in the hall outside the bedrooms), a full kitchen and a living room with a “Murphy bed” (full size bed that is ‘hidden/folded’ inside a cabinet). I would consider the two bedrooms to be “private”, as they have doors like a typical bedroom. The Murphy Bed in the living room is not private, as it’s fully exposed to the living room and kitchen. Additionally, there is a common laundry area (shared with the other 2 units) with 3 clothes washing machines and 3 dryers.
