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 a central air conditioning unit.

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

Everything was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to find this accommodation. It was everything we were hoping for. Just perfect for 2 people. So many things are so close. Beautiful views of the ocean, sunset, turtles & whales. Couldn't have asked for anything better. We can't wait to go back.

Best view, sunsets and private location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Seriously so beautiful! It's new, clean and so private. My husband and I wanted seclusion and privacy on a busy island, if that's what your looking for this is the place! Most beautiful sunsets every night from deck or 'your' beach. Turtles every night. Very quiet beach with no crouds. We loved it!! The water is shallow but super calm and beautiful in mornings. We paddle boarded (rented) out front most mornings. We had an issue with the bed being too hard, but we talked to the owner and that night she came back with three mattress pads! Above and beyond for sure! Only addition that would be great, is a hammock in the trees. ;) We had the BEST time and loved this place!! I was worried before booking, about what people were saying about the beach here but we loved it! if you paddle or swim out a little ways we even found good snorkeling in some reefs, but go in the morning. Wind picks up everywhere on the island in the afternoon everyday. Kihei is a great town, that's kinda central to everything. Great food and shops and close to big resorts if you like night life. Perfect VRBO, one of our favorites we have stayed in so far. Mahalo!

Perfect, Romantic, Affordable

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom second story unit is exactly as advertised. Beautiful ten day stay. Turtles on the beach everywhere, great central location (you'll want a rental car, though), watch turtles and surfers from the room. No stereo... just an alarm radio/CD with no digital input. If you don't like commercial radio and want your own tunes, bring speakers or CD's. We LOVED our stay, would stay there again and recommend it! The stairs are real... heavy suitcase is a chore, but worth the climb for the view and privacy. If you don't want to stay in a resort, this is a beautiful alternative! Owners are friendly and helpful. We will return!

Loved every minute

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 9 days of our two-week vacation in Maui. It was our second time staying at the cottage and we loved every minute of it. The beach is wonderful. The cottage has everything we could need. The neighborhood has lots of amenities close by including wonderful eateries. Amber and the owners were great to work with as well.

Great, Quiet Kihei Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 11 nights here and loved it. The cottage is private and convenient to many restaurants and shops in Kihei. It was very clean and comfortable. Loved the Lanai with a beautiful view of the sunset. It was great having beach chairs and an umbrella there for our use.

The only note we would give is that the beach directly in front of the cottage is really not good for swimming or relaxing IN the water. This stretch is very, very shallow with rock/coral bottom. For swimming, you really need to go south a few blocks or to a different beach in the area. However it is great for sitting on the sand to watch sunsets and turtles.
