  • Wonderful Retreat

    "My husband and I stayed at this cottage on our recent trip to Maui. We very much enjoyed our 3-week stay here. The location, privacy, and views are wonderful. Within walking distance of the cottage are restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, grocery stores, public pool, post office, etc. The cottage is also close to a local car rental company that we used, which was very convenient. The cottage is on a quiet, residential street, which is perfect if you want to avoid the crowds. Great ocean view and beautiful sunsets. We sat out on the lanai almost every morning enjoying our breakfast and took many walks on the nice walking beach in front of the cottage. We also brought the very comfortable beach chairs and umbrella (provided by the host) down to the beach many times. The listing and pictures are exactly as depicted - very clean and well-maintained unit with a fully-stocked kitchen (which we used quite often during our 3 week stay), large comfortable bed (with an ocean view!), and ample-relaxing space. Amber, the property manager, is great; she couldn't have been more friendly and responsive. It was a delight staying here. We can't wait to come back and definitely recommend this cottage for a relaxing, Maui vacation! Mahalo!"

The location was superb, you can walk almost anywhere if there for a short stay and the bus system is great ($4 for the day). Definitely we will return to this complex ... Looking for a longer term stay of 3-5 months !!! Mahalo"

  • A little bit of Paradise

    "My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay on Maui, and the Leinaala. The condo is perfectly situated in Kihei allowing great access to everything. The condo is exactly as it is reflected on the VRBO site; the suite itself provided all the necessities of home, and the property is well-cared for and very quiet. We could not have asked for anything more. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely condo! Mahalo!"

  • Great vacation rental in Maui

    "The condo was exactly as described, clean and well maintained. We enjoyed being able to cook meals in the organized and well stocked kitchen. We found the location to be ideal, especially the farmers market within close walking distance. The beach was fantastic without the crowds that you might encounter at other beaches on the island. Basically, the property met or exceeded our expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet vacation."
