Makawao cottage description

The Aloha Cottage is a charming and romantic Balinese-inspired guest house with magnificent teak wood carvings throughout. Perched atop the highest spot on the property with a backdrop of giant Eucalyptus trees, it is designed to offer our guests spacious living with vaulted ceilings, indoor/outdoor living spaces and an open floor plan. Enjoy a hot soak in the spa tub made for two on your private lanai, lay back on a chaise lounge and take an afternoon nap, or simply listen to the birds singing while enjoying the gentle, cool breezes that make Upcountry Maui life so pleasant. Stargaze through the skylight from the comfort of your king size bed. Enjoy solitude and serenity in your romantic island hideaway!

Attention to detail is everywhere you look--no expense was spared in making this a truly special guest accommodation. Our promise is total privacy for our guests and a true luxury cottage experience. The exotic design and unique placement of our cottage creates the most amazing vacation experience with ample distance from the main house.

As unique inside as on the outside, the Aloha Cottage boasts a pyramid-shaped skylight at the apex of the eight-sided, vaulted ceiling. One can actually lay-back on the bed at night and gaze at the stars through this unique, architectural feature. Beautiful imported carvings, that were specifically designed and crafted for it by artisans in Bali, can be seen throughout. A combination of recessed lighting and wall sconces with dimmer controls provide great ambience within the well-planned space.

The spacious octagonal living area is enhanced by its 14 foot tall open-beam ceilings. The floors are acid washed terra-cotta with built-in radiant heat for added comfort. The design of the main room with its 'living in the round' is so unique! One section offers an Asian-style sit-on-the-floor dining space with custom-built table for two, while another is dedicated to a cozy lounge area. There is a large wall-mounted flat screen TV and a stereo in the built-in wall cabinet. And finally, at the enter of this amazing space, there is a king-size custom-crafted platform bed.

The kitchen is well-equipped for your cooking and dining pleasure. It features gorgeous granite counter tops, a full-size refrigerator/freezer and a full-size, four-burner gas stove and oven. A large 3-panel bay window overlooks the bamboo garden. This kitchen is wonderfully completed by a compliment of solid wood cabinets and hand-carved Teak wood drawer fronts.

Aloha Cottage has earned excellent accolades from Conde Nast Traveler, Lonely Planet, LA Times, NY Times, Maui Revealed, National Geographic Travel Guide, Fodors, Frommers, Organic Living, Best Places to Stay, and many more!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: The owners of the Aloha Cottage came to Maui from the San Francisco Bay area. Drawn by the clean air and endless natural beauty of the island, it is our pleasure to share this discovery with you.

Why the Owner Chose Makawao:
We chose Upcountry Maui because it green, lush and beautiful, unlike the Kihei or Lahaina side of the island that can feel like a 'dry desert'. It has the most amazing air, filled with hints of Eucalyptus and fresh tropical scents. There is a gentle mist some mornings that keeps everything vibrant and alive. One awakes to a soft symphony of tropical birds, the scent of fresh mountain air and the aroma of multitudes of flowers in bloom.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
As a guest of Aloha Cottage you experience the most romantic settings, total privacy and a true luxury cottage experience. You truly feel that your cottage belongs to you! No interaction is required with the owners unless you desire it or need it! The greatest compliment that resounds from our guests is that, 'hospitality abounds and yet it is accomplished invisibly and seamlessly'!
