Beautiful home + Unbeatable Beachfront Location = Fabulous Family Vacation
"This was our first time visiting Maui and it certainly won't be our last! This beautiful home truly helped make our vacation special. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 2 older "kids" (17 and 21). We aren't a "resort-type" family--we prefer accommodations that allow for a more peaceful and private getaway--this beachfront home exceeded our expectations, while being close in proximity to everything we needed (including fabulous restaurants--"Coconuts" is within walking distance and should not be missed, and great snorkeling) . We never tired of walking across the lawn every morning with our coffee cups and beach chairs to watch the sea turtles poking their heads up and listen to the waves--no better way to start a day. Evenings found us gathered on the lanai watching the sunset, waiting for one of the neighbors to blow their conch shell acknowledgement of another sunset in Maui! Every sunrise and sunset could be enjoyed directly from this home and we took advantage of every one. The beach directly in front of the home is sandy and very swimmable--great for smaller children--not so great for snorkeling, but as I mentioned great snorkeling could be found within a 5-10 minute drive through Kihea. Having never been to Maui before we feel so fortunate that we found this rental home as it allowed us a home base of unparallelled beauty and a very convenient location from which to branch out and see much of the Island."

"House was a great home-away-from-home while exploring Maui. Very relaxed and private accommodations - not packed in with tonnes of other tourists. We were three women and three babies/kids and felt safe and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The house was exactly as described and pictured - no disappointment upon arrival. We would definitely return to this property if returning to Maui. Around the corner is a great little park to watch the sunset."

"The Honu'ea Cottage was just as advertised. It was clean, well-maintained and well stocked, and big enough for two. It was not luxurious, but it was very comfortable, and we enjoyed the quiet--the only neighbors we saw or heard during our week were lizards on the lanai, chickens in the yard below, and birds and butterflies in the tress. The view was marvelous, although the August afternoon sun was too hot for us to spend much time on the lanai or to want to try the grill. The beach accessible just across the dunes is great to walk along, although not terrific for swimming, but the cottage's location in Kihei is an ideal home base for exploring all of Maui. We definitely recommend it and would be inclined to stay there again if and when we return to Maui."

Clean, Comfortable, Cool, & Cozy. Was A Great Place To Relax. Great Price For A Family!
"This was our first vacation rental house and we couldn't have been more pleased. We have 2 smaller children so the open upstairs was great to have them sleeping close by. There would be plenty more room for more children with the two futons downstairs. There were also blow-up mattresses if needed. Plenty of pillows and extra bedding if needed. We were surprised how well the upstairs and even downstairs stayed cool most of the time. We are from Wyoming and thought for sure we would be using the air conditioner upstairs but didn't even feel the need to. Loved the backyard for bbq and drinking early morning coffee. We used the bikes, boogie boards, sand toys at the beach as well as the cooler. Of course always nice to have a washer & dryer. Property owner was great called and wanted to make sure we let her know when we arrived. She welcomed any suggestions on cleaning if we had any. We felt sad to leave because we immediately felt right at home. We were not at all disappointed with our decision to stay here and are confident others would feel the same."
