Wonderful property and welcoming hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect cottage for our family of 4. It was clean, very roomy, and located close to shopping, beaches, & restaurants. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were so comfortable. The guest bedroom was very roomy and more then enough for my 9 and 11 year old to share. Our hosts were so gracious and friendly to visit with. We were even lucky to share some time with their daughter, grand kids, and all the dogs. We are dog lovers and my daughters loved playing with all of them. The entire family made us feel so welcomed that we did not want to leave. The pool was a nice amenity to come home to and enjoy on those humid afternoons. Of course, our kids LOVED the slide and waterfall. We look forward to returning to this great home again. Thank you for having us!

A little piece of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at the cottage and we wouldn't stay anywhere else on Maui! It is our home away from home. We love that we can go out exploring in the morning/early day and then come play in the pool in in the afternoons (such a blessing with napping children as well). Elaine and Al are more than hospitable - we are looking forward to our next visit! The cottage is perfect for our family of 3!

We love staying here! It's our third time! Owners are so hospitable and helpful with activities. This is the perfect home base to explore and enjoy Maui. After a busy day, come back to a quiet, clean, and fully equipped cottage not to mention the pool is amazing with a waterfall and slide! We can't wait to go back!!! Mahalo

Splendid Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay here and we just Love, Love, Love the cottage on Maui. Close to everything Kihei and Wailea. Owners are spectacular hosts with a local business that provides great info and deals on activities all over the island. Cottage has everything you need to head out to the many amazing beaches (toys, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc), have a home cooked meal (well appointed kitchen, grill, lanai, spices & stuff), or just relax by the amazing pool! Can't wait to return!

Perfect vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 nights and absolutely loved it! The location is nestled in a quiet and safe neighborhood, that we enjoyed walking in the mornings. The property is lovely with tropical plants and flowers. My daughters loved playing in the yard and of course the amazing pool! The best beaches are so close! We loved Wailea Beach, just below the Four Seasons. We used all the equipment available, free snorkel gear and boogie boards. Elaine and Alfie are wonderful hosts. You really can't go wrong staying at this sweet little cottage!

Peaceful Retreat and Wonderful Pool

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here in March for 6 nights. The cottage was perfectly clean and is more spacious than appears in the photos. The pool was heated, which is incredibly nice and makes for longer, more comfortable swims. My daughter loved the slide and this was a highlight for her. There is now a couch and gazebo-type structure to provide seating and shade, not shown in the photos, but a great addition. The location is very convenient to everything you would want to do in Maui. We prefer staying in a neighbourhood like this, as it is more peaceful than the condo strips. Superb stay!
