Review Submitted June 19, 2012 Date of Stay June 11, 2012

The owners are wonderful and they thought of everything. There's a flat screen with satellite TV, high speed WiFi (although the connection is spotty), granite counter tops, laundry facilities, towels, local maps, a well stocked kitchen, nice BBQ, a safe, and lots of beach gear including boogie boards, snorkels, fins, masks, lawn chairs, beach mats, water socks etc. etc. The cottage is quiet and private, and they also saved us a lot of money with recommendations for things such as a local car rental company and discount cards for the local supermarkets. If we make it back to Maui we will definitely stay there again.

The Sweetest Place

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we had the privilege of staying at this sweet garden cottage. It offers total privacy, yet is within walking distance from beaches, stores, restaurants, etc. We really appreciate how Janine has paid attention to so many little details to make her guests comfortable. The decor and the private yard are very tasteful and absolutely lovely. There is also an abundance of beach chairs, toys, etc that eliminate the need for purchasing these items.

Janine and Ross are wonderful hosts and very easy to communicate with, should a need arise.

We have had the privilege of staying at this cottage a number of times, and have come to think of it as a second home.

I would highly recommend this cottage. It is our favourite spot to stay when we come to Maui!

Perfect Kihei retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our recent visit to Maui. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay, and a lot of thoughtful touches - like frozen beer glasses waiting for us, and local guides for all the island areas. Pictures are not an exaggeration - it’s modern, clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again on my next visit... if we’re lucky enough it’s free then!

Our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Wow where do I start. We just spent the entire month of November here. There is so many wonderful things to say about Janine's cottage. This is not our first time staying here, and we will be staying here again. The pictures are very accurate, but you must see in person to capture it's real beauty. Janine has thought of everything and provided everything that you will need for you stay. All you really need are your clothes, and food. Janine takes a lot of pride in her cottage, and is constantly updating, changing and replacing items. The cottage is the cleanest on the island. It is getting harder and harder to book this cottage, because of repeat customers, and the care that Janine puts into it. We felt like we were living here during our stay and not just on vacation. No place has ever made us feel that way before. Janine and Ross are great host, and are available to offer any help or advise. Looking forward to our next stay here.
