About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

On Maui's sunny south shore, is the romantic Honu’ea cottage, where quiet peaceful living is a way of life. Honu'ea (Hawksbill Turtle) is named after the endangered turtles that come and nest on the sandy shores in front of the property. Honu’ea is perfect for honeymooners or couples just wanting a unique tranquil getaway. The cottage is located on an acre of landscaped grounds with an unobstructed beachfront view of the Pacific Ocean. Just steps from the front door you can take long walks on miles of uncrowded sandy beach.

Honu’ea is a one bedroom, one bath Hawaiian style cottage. This new cottage has a great open floor plan that allows for ocean views from almost every room. The master bedroom includes a king size bed, ample walk in closet for clothes and luggage, and a great view of the landscaped yard and ocean. The living space has an inviting sitting area with a relaxing sofa and chair and flat screen tv/dvd. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for all your cooking needs. The cottage also has an amazing beachfront lanai with outdoor seating and BBQ. For the really hot Maui summer days the cottage has central air conditioning.

The cottage is centrally located so you’re only a short walk away from local restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. The neighborhood is walkable and local bus service is available.

This lovely cottage exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent eight days in the cottage, and we found the VRBO description to be completely accurate. The cottage was clean, the bed comfy, and the ocean view spectacular. We enjoyed the quiet residential setting (with private parking), away from massive condominium complexes and resorts, with restaurants and shops just a short walk away.

Be sure to look in the nooks and crannies of the cottage because guests will find beach chairs, guide books, an ice chest, beach towels, and nearly anything one might need. The wifi worked perfectly.

When we weren't out exploring the island, we spent a lot of time on the lanai, reading or watching the ocean. Several times, we saw humpback whales blowing and breaching. In addition, sunsets at the cottage are AMAZING! Guests should explore the beach an hour or so before the sun goes down. We saw a green sea turtle lying on the beach one evening, and --once we knew what to look for-- many sea turtles swimming near the shore as night approached.

Kihei's central location makes it the perfect home base for exploring the rest of the island, and staying at the Honu'ea Cottage makes Maui all the more magical. We highly recommend this property.

We took a week to just get away. The first night - sat out on the patio and watched the sun set though the palm trees. We did lots of touristy things but mostly just read books, sat in the dappled sun and thought "does it get any better than this?"

This rental is the upper floor of a studio, adjacent to the owner's house. That kind of threw me for a minute - so close. But not a problem. Totally private and quiet. Nice street to walk, a couple of blocks from main road.

We loved every minute of it.

Everything we wanted and more. . .

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly exceptional experience here in April 2016. The entire process from booking to check out was so easy, and everything was in pristine shape and order.

The space served as our sanctuary after returning from long days touring the Island - it was perfectly quiet, serene, and the fact that we could cook at home and dine on the private balcony was a real treat.

We'll definitely be planning to return to this specific space at some point in the future!

The place was perfect. The manager, Amber had everything ready and it was spotless. Even under the cupboard under the sink was scrubbed. Lovely sunsets, beautiful yard, fabulous cross ventilation from all the windows. It is right in Kihei but it is along a very quiet street. Turtles on the beach most evenings. Easy walking distance to super market, some eateries and St. Theresa's Catholic Church. This is not a snorkeler's beach but because of its central location you can quickly get to the beaches that offer the best visibility each day. Just check with the dive shop each morning.
