About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The International Colony Club is a collection of "plantation style" uniquely "Hawaiian" cottages situated on meticulously landscaped grounds located right in the middle of the North Kaanapali Golf Course. Kaanapali beach, famous for incredible beauty and some of Maui's best snorkeling is only a few minute walk from the property. Beautiful gardens and 2 sparkling swimming pools are only steps away from the front door.

Our one-of-a-kind, completely remodeled cottage offers the most spectacular views on the entire property. Views of both Molokai and Lanai can be seen from this spacious, custom designed 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage. Vaulted ceilings, large modern kitchen, beautiful lanai with wrap around "hurricane" windows and open "great room" complete this treasure in paradise. State of the art sound system, TV and superior Wi-Fi coverage only add to the Aloha experience.

The entire premises has been meticulously remodeled including both bathrooms and bedrooms and appointed with custom island furniture and accessories throughout. Although the cottage does not have air conditioning, the numerous ceiling fans and extensive windows create a pleasant "airy" feel in any weather condition.

The fabulous pool is only a few steps away, and the lush surrounding gardens and landscape truly deliver the ultimate Hawaiian experience. Come and enjoy our magical getaway on the island of Maui.

About The Owner

I decided to rent our cottage and have been self managing this property now for 5 years. I truly believe in being a "hands on" owner and always promote great communication and my consistent availability to all guests. My numerous property reviews mention this ownership philosophy as a critical element to a successful vacation, and I feel this attention to detail and pride of ownership enhances my guest's experience.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1991

Why The Owner chose West Maui

The International Colony Club is a unique, VERY Hawaiian accommodation option that offers a much more interesting and relaxing experience when compared to the typical hotel. We purchased this particular cottage due to its superior location within the property as well as its proximity to my favorite beach in Maui. The views are unequaled, the pool is convenient and the spacious distance between other cottages and meticulously kept gardens and grounds make this a particularly special cottage within the ICC property.

What makes this cottage unique

Having a nice "home" to come from the beach to that is quiet, spacious and a comfortable refuge from the busy Maui day really adds to the vacation experience. Preparing selected meals in a large, modern, and well appointed kitchen can take the bite out of needing to rely on restaurants/hotel food for every meal.

I have been involved in every step of this cottage's extensive remodeling, kitchen design, interior design and landscaping improvements. You will immediately see a true pride of ownership in the quality of finishes and attention to detail in every area, including the overall cleanliness of the cottage.

Maui - Excellent Cottage near beach & amenities

  • 5 of 5

Great find - peaceful, clean, well kept, managed and maintained. Located a short walking distance from Airport Beach and Kaanapali Shopping, hotels, restaurants but just far enough out of the hustle bustle to really relax. Excellent privacy. Private pool for nearby units is located in very close proximity to unit. Pool hours of operation and noise are strictly enforced (which is nice); however, we only saw 1-2 people use pool per day when we did use it. Property is impeccably maintained. We observed crews making sure landscape and walkways looked very nice daily. Cottage appears to be recently updated with new(er) appliances throughout, nice furniture, satellite TV, comfortable beds, clean linens and towels, all the utensils and cooking equipment one could hope for in a rental situation, solid washer dryer, etc. The space plan and use of space is extremely efficient and open. The unit feels very spacious compared to many other comparable units we've encountered in Maui previously. We arrived to a spotless and very clean unit. Terry (the owner) provided excellent communication & pre-arrival documents outlining directions to unit, occupancy, parking and property procedures well in advance of our stay. Information was clear, concise, accurate & easy to follow. Beautiful views, peaceful and overall a great place to stay and relax!

Highway and other property noise aggravating but overall a very nice visit to Kaanapali area.

  • 4 of 5

Terry's Cottage was almost exactly as described. There was plenty of room for us to spread out, something we purposely sought out. The decor was homey and beach like. Having the surrounding windows made views of the tropical vegetation and the ocean across the way stunning. Everything we could have possibly needed was on site. There were beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, a grill, coffee pot, filters, dish soap, and laundry soap. It was well stocked and much appreciated. It was convenient to get across to the beach. (Though don't drive over if planning to be there past 7pm or your car will get locked into the lot!) Overall pretty much as described.

There is a little deferred maintenance that needs some attention, but nothing major. (I reported to the owner who I am certain will take care of pronto, he was very responsive!) The only downfall for us, which may or may not be an issue to others, was the noise. The main bedroom is right on a walking path and it seemed at all hours, late at night, early in the morning, inevitably when we were trying to sleep folks would be standing out there having full on conversations. The sprinklers seemed to go off just outside the bedroom window in the middle of the night as well. So if you are a light sleeper........bring ear plugs. We resulted to using ours. The one issue that drove us mad however just couldn't be worked around, and that was the highway noise. We went on vacation to get away from the hustle and bustle of being in the city. And something about the way the wind was blowing, the noise from the main highway just came right into the unit. And even as we sat by the pool it just carried. We closed windows, bedroom doors, everything. There was just no escaping it. Everything is a trade off. So for the extra space we got to the other side of the highway. No ocean sounds for us. Just city like traffic. Was the trade off for the space worth it? I'm not sure. But if it weren't for that, we would definitely give Terry's cottage a 5 star.

Oh, and if you are traveling with someone elderly or with walking limitations check about if there is some easier access. There was quite a lengthy hill to walk up to from the parking lot.

Wonderful cottage in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Terry's cottage is a perfect family option right off the beach that offers excellent space and amenities to enjoy while in and away from the cottage. The cottage was immaculate for our arrival, Terry's communication throughout was excellent. The grounds are beautifully kept and very quiet. The pool is just steps away, there are ocean views from the hilltops and wonderful hikes right outside the door. The beach is a ten minute walk or few minute drive and is a quiet area of Kaanapali beach with great snorkeling. Lahaina is a short drive away for surfing, groceries, shopping and a multitude of restaurant options. Our family of four would highly recommend Terry's cottage for a relaxing home away from home option in Maui.

Wonderful stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Maui is spectacular! We really enjoyed our stay at Terry's Cottage. It was off the beaten track yet close enough to access everything. The cottage was spacious and tastefully appointed with all the amenities you could need. The beach was a 15 minute walk away and there was a pool on the property. Terry was prompt in his responses and a pleasure to interact with. MIke, the property manager was great and gave us wonderful advice to make our stay even better. We would highly recommend this cottage for a visit to the west side of Maui. Thank you Terry for sharing your home!

Relax on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Great Maui home for either a family or a romantic getaway. Very clean and spacious and the panoramic view of the ocean is terrific. Very quiet at night and the pool is steps away for a quick dip. Located across the street from a great beach to snorkel as well as enjoy a drink or lunch at the tiki bar at the resort next door to the beach. Centrally located to Kapalua and Lahaina for short day excursions as well. Would recommend this home to anyone looking for great place to stay on Maui.
