Beautiful Ocean View, Meticulous Custom Maui Cottage: a Must See!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


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 8 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 Lahaina

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.

Incredible place to relax and enjoy Maui

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find this cottage for our first trip to Maui -- it was like a home away from home. It was the perfect place for our family to enjoy and explore paradise -- close to everything but away from the crowds. It had everything we needed to prepare/enjoy meals together as a family. It had beach gear to enjoy sun/sand. It was a great spot to begin/end outings and day trips to Lahaina Old Town, Hana, Kihei and others. All in all, we were more than impressed with this home -- responsive owner, friendly neighbours, clean, spacious, quiet, amenities and proximity to beach, shopping and more. Even though there is a beach just a short distance from the cottage, we had an opportunity to explore beaches all over the island. We enjoyed morning coffee and evening wine from the large sunroom with sea breezes and views of the ocean, sunsets, Lanai and Molokai. We hope to return and would definitely recommend this home for your stay in Maui!

Spacious beautiful cottage in premium Kaanapali !!

  • 4 of 5

Upon getting ready to return home from a 10 day, 9 night stay at this beautiful Maui Cottage, I was trying to figure out a way to stay longer :)

This is not a condo -- it's like a 2-bedroom home, spacious and beautifully appointed . . it features comfortable furniture, great sound system (bluetooth compatible), super comfy beds (heavenly soft mattresses), and a top-notch kitchen . .

There's a beautiful view (albeit 1/4 to 1/3 mile+/- from the beach) of the ocean from both the outside lawn area, and from the inside living room/dining room . . having the pool right outside the cottage is another great plus . . also, the cottage is equipped well w/ beach-oriented items . .

The only kind of disappointing issues were:

1) there's no outside lanai/deck/porch accessible from the unit -- it appears that the original outdoor lanai was added in the spacious interior of the cottage . .

2) the second bedroom is partially open to the kitchen/living room -- which somewhat impacts privacy issues . .

3) there was no air conditioning . .

However, there are so many things to love about the Maui Cottage that the positives overcome those 3 issues . . plus, working with Terry, the owner/manager, was an absolute pleasure . . he was totally ready and available to help in every way possible to make the trip a dream !!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! Yes, this place is unique and much different from a condo as the house is "free-standing" with much room in between the other cottages. This was built prior to the high density model that is prominent today. The house has been expanded by incorporating the original outdoor patio into a beautiful indoor lanai. We felt that this was a major benefit when purchasing the house, as this design adding considerable living space. Also, we felt that the "open air" guest bedroom configuration was a pleasing architectural element, but I can understand your comment. Additionally, we always felt that air conditioning was unnecessary due to all the windows that surround the entire house, but again, I understand that some people really prefer air conditioning vs. multiple ceiling fans and windows. You were a great guest, and I sincerely hope to have you again in the future! Terry

A Little Piece of Paradise in the Midst of Maui

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to find Terry Bell's cottage! It truly is a little piece of paradise in the midst of Maui. It has a great location ~ close to Lahaina, the beach (right across the street), shopping, grocery store. The minute we walked in we felt like we were home. It was just two seventy-one year old ladies who have been best friends for 68 years living in this large cottage and loving every minute of it. Our favorite place was in the corner of the sunroom, a very large sunroom with windows all around with a spectacular view of Molokai and the ocean. There were two very comfortable chairs with a ceiling fan over them and the gorgeous view! When we weren't out taking in the sights and sounds of Maui that's where you could find us ~ reading, talking, laughing, drinking, eating. There is a pool very close by that was very well kept, crystal clear. We met a lot of the neighbors there, but it was never crowded. To get to the beach you just walk across the street. We saw some beautiful sunsets there! The kitchen was well stocked if you wanted to cook, but cooking on our vacation was not gonna happen. We did use the refrigerator for our snacks and wine. There were stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Everything was well kept, clean and very tropical. Except we couldn't figure out the penguins Terry ~ maybe to cool you off in the heat of Maui? All in all, it was a beautiful cottage and our stay could not have been any better!

Owner's Response: I am thrilled that you had a great trip and that the cottage met your needs on every level. Yes, sitting in the sunroom reading a book or enjoying the sunset is our favorite place in the house as well. The views of both Lanai and Molokai are spectacular from this vantage point. I hope to have you as a future guest!

Owner's Response: There is a parking stall that is fairly close to the cottage, but a bit away from the main lot. I will include this tip for future guests. Thanks for pointing this out!

Beautiful Ocean View. A must see!!

  • 5 of 5

We were back again for at least the 6th time in this beautiful Maui home, our home away from home. This home is a must see for anyone considering a trip to Maui. It has two bedrooms, two baths, fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer. No need to eat out three times a day. Enjoyed breakfast at the dining room table looking out on the beautiful grounds. The pool is just steps away and never crowded. This home is perfect for Families with children or anyone else. Supermarket is 10 minute drive. The town of Lahaina has many shops and restaurants. The home is very clean and well-maintained The owner is always available if anything occurs. This home is so much better than staying in a hotel. Check this home out and you will be very happy you did.
