Makena cottage description

Enjoy breathtaking unlimited views of nearby islands, sensational sunsets, turtles feeding year around and whale watching in Winter from your own private paradise. Our irresistible home is located on private property, surrounded by fruit trees, gardens and lush green grass in Makena Maui. It is one of the finest, truly unique hidden Hawaiian places.

Decorated in casual island style, the homes main dwelling has 1 bedroom with queen bed, 1 full bath , living dining room combination with a full size kitchen. Attached to the main home is a private master suite with a queen bed, full bath, sitting area and hot tub with beautiful ocean views. You can rented the cottage for 2 people or the cottage and master suite for 4 people. Maximum 4 guests total. Amenities included are barbecue, cable TV/VCR/DVD, stereo with CD/tape, cordless phone, and washer/dryer, ceiling fans, fully equipped kitchen with coffee maker, and microwave.


Things to do...: Take advantage of the excellent snorkeling and scuba diving in front of your own cottage. Feed the fish in the tide pools or search for sea shells. Look for turtles eatingthe seaweed off the rocks as you sit in your lounge chair. There is not a better place to kayak on Maui and they are available to rent nearby. Walk to nearby white sand beach - Makena Beach. Big Beach, which for years has been voted best beach in Hawaii, is a 5 minute drive from the cottage. If you dont feel like cooking enjoy the wonderful restaurants at the Maui Prince Hotel which is a 5 minute scenic walk. Keawalai Historical Church is located just 5 doors down.

Makena Memories: Our home has such wonderful memories for me...My grandparents originally built the little cottage as a place to come to on the weekend to go 'Hukilau' which means fishing. My first memories are of the original design of the house...it was completely open on the front. Where the bedroom is now, had benches all the way around the sides. In the middle where the bathroom is, was where they locked up the bedding and cots. The kitchen was the kitchen and the bathroom was actual built next to the cottage and my grandfather kept his most precious posessions in there...his lawn mower and fishing nets. We had so much fun, everyone together like a big camp out, some in hammocks others on army cots, but all of us watching the fireworks in the sky. What I realized as I got older was that it wasnt fire works but the military bombing Koholawe island.
Through the years I learned how special our place is. I grew up there, learned to swim, got married there and now my son gets to experience it too.

                              Why the Owner Chose Makena:
                              This property has been in my family for 3 generations and will stay in my family for many more. My grandmother use to say 'Makena means work' and I didnt understand until I was older how much I was willing to work to preserve paradise.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              Waking up to the sounds of the waves on the shore. Having coffee while watching the turtles feed off the rocks. Picking mango's and bananas right from the trees for breakfast. Its not a condo...its your own place to enjoy.
