Located at the top of Waipi`o Valley on the Big Island, Cliff House provides unprecedented, panoramic views of Hawaii's natural beauty. Like their namesake, these classic aviators from Maui Jim come with polarized lenses that offer bright, clear views everywhere you look.
After enjoying my Stingrays for past few months I wanted to add to my choices with an aviator style. I ordered the Cliff House silver frame with Hawaiian Blue lens. Great size choice for me. I normally only go with wrap type frames to keep light leak and inside lens reflections to a minimum.
Unfortunately these do reflect an awful lot inside the lens which is common for mirror type. That and the silver frame while thin, strong and very light weight do cause reflections off the silver frame too. Many get used to it. I hope I do as I find it distracting but I do love the frame style. I have absolutely no complaints on build quality or finish in any way.
Ordered both the Cliff House and Baby Beach to compare. Sent back Baby Beach just lens too small.
Kept the Cliff House in Silver Titanium and Blue lens. I had just bought a pair of Sting Rays in May as I favor wrap frames.
But was intrigued by the aviator frames popular the past 3 years. Glad I did as the lens are not too big for my small/medium size requirement.
The variation Maui Jim made on this design is really nice. They are perfect size wise and I like the slightly brownish hue these Blue lens give. I’ve always favored dark grey lens. These are a welcome change.
As for the frames they come nice and tight at the hinges and seem like they will hold up well. The entire package is very light an comfortable so far on day 1.
These are amazingly comfortable, and super easy to use even with your cell phone outside in bright sun. Stylish to say the least and I get nothing but compliments on them. I brag about Maui Jim sunglasses all the time. They always go well with whatever I'm wearing be it regular clothes, swimwear or even semi formal wear.
This is my third pair of Maui Jim's and I love them! So easy and true to style and size on line. Shipping was immediate and, as always, product is the highest quality. I have the "reader" style and they are so easy to use to read even fine print in the bright sunlight. Outstanding company and quality products!
I’m a Maui Jim lover, have been for years. i was tired of waiting for Mavericks with Blue Hawaii lenses to come available with readers, so I tried these instead. WOW! I love them more than my Mavericks! I live the color of the lenses, I love the metal frames, and I love that I can order them with readers! And Maui Jim has the best customer service!
As the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for." I purchased the blue lens with gold frame. They are gorgeous and truly amazing sunglasses as the other reviewers have mentioned. I love many of my Ray-Bans, but these definitely outperform RB's aviators in every category - quality of lens. appearance, lightweight, and they actually fit my narrow face! It feels like you aren't even wearing glasses! Their customer service is bar none. Thanks Maui Jim for continuing to provide both quality products and excellent customer service. A winning (and rare) combination in the marketplace.
These are my second pair of these! I absolutely love the combo of rose gold lenses & gold frames. They are light on your face and I love this style/shape of aviators compared to the originals. It is a Perfect pair! Now I just need to get to Maui to wear them on the beach!
Love these sunglasses!! I play golf & prefer to have lightweight polarized sunglasses. These have replaced my "go to" Ray Ban aviators. Much lighter, stay on my face, don't slide down when i'm sweating....great overall. Only issue I had was the arm fell off when the screw came out. Just sent them back in for repair.
I love these sunglasses! I had mono vision contacts for years and recently had to go to distance only contacts, so I needed readers to see close up. These work great! I can play golf in them and still see the score card and my phone. The blue lenses are crisp and clear and look great. I get lots of compliments on them. I’ve worn Maui Jim sunglasses for many years and I have several pairs. These may be the most comfortable sunglasses I have!
Love these! I got the Maui Rose with a gold frame. I wish they made them with gunmetal frames but the gold still looks good. The Rose lens almost has a brown sheen. These frames are significantly lighter than similar aviator frames from Ray-Ban.
These are my first Aviator shaped pair of sunglasses and these Cliff House Maui Jim sunglasses don't disappoint from style, fit, light weight, and high quality of lens! Immediate hit as many of my friends and family noticed and commented on them.
I have two of the baby beach and one cliff house. These are a little wide for my small face but the natural wrap that Maui gives makes it not look as wide. I will never wear anything else but Maui, being an optician their polarization is superb and I always do a fun mirror color. I wear them hiking, biking, beach and they are great. Lightweight and strong. Don 't mistake light weight for fragile..unless you are some mammoth who cannot take care of things
Love the look and the comfort, but the lenses suck (at least for my eyes). I can't look at the water around sunset or anything generally at sunset because the glare will mess with your vision. Very disappointed for how popular these are. Maybe it's just the color (black gradient).
I’ve owned these 5+ years and they have held up amazingly. They are super lightweight and comfortable but still durable. I have the silver and wish the lenses were a little darker but the clarity is better than any other brand. Highly recommended.
The Cliff House is my favorite Maui Jim frame. It really seems to be univerally flattering. I have a huge head, and I think they look cute on me, and if my friends borrow them, they seem to look gorgeous as well. Ditto with my brother. because the bottom of the frame is rounded, they flatter much more than the more curved aviator frames. Very balanced look.
Well I am a huge believer in Maui Jim’s. I have had my cliff house for 5 or 6 years. I am really rough on my glasses, so each year I replace one of my pairs with new lenses. I am about to take in my black frame cliff house and get a new set of lenses. This time I’m going to custom them out with the blue lenses (had the grey the past replacement). I really do like the HT green, but I’m going to try the blue color. Every time I get a new pair or new lenses, I keep thinking I’ll keep these in the case all the time.. nope I keep testing how durable they can be. I get my money’s worth. These glasses are so light weight and the titanium frame is so durable. Great customer service! Definitely 5 star!
I only buy Maui Jim as I am outside all the time for work, boating, SUP, skiing and everything else!!! No one beats Maui Jim’s as it relates to style and eye care. I have had eye surgery and the lenses are the best in regards to eye protection. I have only owned MJs for the last 15 years!!! Been through a lot of them! Already looking at this year purchase.... thinking Spinnakers?!!
These are great and tough. I had my last pair of Maui Jim’s for six years without any issues. The second day I had these we went canoeing. We lost control in rapids put us right into a tree on shore. I took a face full of branches and the canoe almost tipped. I thought for sure at the time the glasses would fall off my face, but they didn’t! And I was confident they would be scratched, but they were still perfect! Great fit and great quality. They are everything I was expecting and worth the cost.
I wanted to expand my Maui Jim collection and have been looking for the perfect pair. I found them in the Cliff House. Just love them. Love the lenses, the look, everything! I recently wore them on a trip to Switzerland where we had sunshine in abundance. So happy with my purchase! :)
I bought these because I am always looking for the perfect sunglasses to wear when I am golfing. These are the best I have found. They make everything more clear and I really can see all colors of golf balls better. I highly recommend them to all.
