Cozy Spot

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful sunrise with mountain view and birdsong. A lovely way to start the day. The Myna birds have an interesting cadence and tone. Good to be able to make meals and clean clothing in a quiet neighborhood in between viewing natural resources of Maui.

Weather was mostly great with occasional fog. Seems like whales didn't show up as much in the fog as they did on the clear days. Recommend going to the Maalaea Harbor about a half hour south to ride on a double decker catamaran to view whales. Also, Haleakala has much to offer and the state park with the Iao Needle. Different sections of the park are landscaped by various cultures.

Don't miss the third largest Banyon tree in the world in downtown LaHaina.

Fave chowder is at Mala--get a reservation for sunset! Fave fish taco or quesadilla is at Paia Fish Market on corner across the street from the Banyon tree and best time is 1:30pm.

Robert was very kind and hospitable. Our stay was good for the most part. Most things in cottage could use an update but they work and are clean. Adding a floor lamp with bright lightbulb to the living room for night reading is an excellent idea.

A Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We came and stayed two weeks in Robert and Denise's lovely VRBO and my only complaint is we didn't stay long enough. It was such a wonderful experience and overall beautiful vacation. The location is perfect being in the residential so you get a more personal island experience instead of the touristy hussle and bustle of staying right in the town. The home is very cozy, with every amenity we could ever need, and the pool and outside shower were highlights after long days on the go. The town is just a few minutes away walking which was the perfect distance when we had full bellies coming home from dinner. And waking up to the breathtaking mountain view was by far the hardest thing for me to say goodbye to. Robert and Denise were wonderful hosts giving us plenty of privacy yet very attentive if we ever needed anything. They welcomed us with open arms and we appreciate every moment of their hospitality. When we come to Maui again this will definitely be our first choice for a home away from home. Thank you.

We were eager to be in Maui. The Cottage was nice and quiet. There were things that made our stay only OK. Our hosts were obviously not well and therefore not really wanting to interact with us. The TV system was challenging and when I asked Robert he was very

curt. I only disturbed him once in eight days but obviously that was too much. There was

too little light to be able to read in the Livingroom or bedroom so that is a big deal to me. Disappointing as it was the most expensive accomodations of our trip.

Owner's Response: Sorry for any misunderstanding regarding our new "top of the line" TV System; (a PANASONIC "flatscreen" with DVD player & extensive MOVIE COLLECTION.) There were NO Previous complaints! Further, the Owner (a former Innkeeper) has always been AVAILABLE 7 Days per week; To make certain, a Tech just replaced the CABLE BOX: " problem" solved!

Lahaina Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect little bungalow for our Maui visit. We had just what we needed and loved being away from the tourist hustle and bustle. Yet, so close to walk or drive to everything we wanted to do. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice cottage, easy walk to beaches and Lahaina town

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bob and Denise's cottage in Lahaina. We're not into staying at big resorts and have stayed at VRBOs in the islands before. We find it's a great way to vacation in the islands. This was a great location for walking into and exploring Lahaina, with easy vehicle access to the main highway. Neighborhood is quiet, and we loved waking up to the mynah birds and doves/pigeons. We had outstanding views of the West Maui Mountains off the deck/patio.

The cottage was the perfect size for a couple. It would be a bit tight if you had other people or kids. The place was clean, with a comfortable queen-sized bed and a nice living/kitchen area. The furnishings are a bit worn, as others have reported. The loveseat, in addition to the large rattan chair and couch, made the living area a bit cramped, and we would've preferred it wasn't there. Kitchen was fairly well stocked, unless you're a foodie and expect all sorts of handy kitchen gadgets.

My main suggestion to the owners would be to provide better reading lights. Since the weather was marginal for part of our stay, we did spend some time reading and relaxing. The lamps they had were a little too dim.

The little swimming pool in the yard is delightful. We loved all the tiny lizards that were running around the yard. We didn't see many geckos, though.

Bob and Denise were very accommodating and thoughtful and were concerned about our comfort. When we were having trouble with the WIFI, Bob called in his IT guy and had it fixed in short order.

If you're looking for reasonably priced accommodations on Maui, away from the contrived atmosphere of the resorts, this cottage is a great way to go. Buy your own groceries. Cook / BBQ your own food. Eat out once in a while.

Oh, and the beach is a just a couple of blocks from the cottage. We didn't swim there. When the weather was nice, we were off sailing or snorkeling. But we saw people enjoying the water, which is protected by a reef. Surf/SUP lessons are offered on the beach. Very convenient!

Perfect alternative to crowded resorts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks at the Tropical Gardens home, and couldn't have made a better choice for a peaceful vacation! The quiet neighborhood and private pool were so relaxing, and the home had everything we needed to stay in and unwind, as well as chairs and towels to take to the beach. If busy and noisy resorts are not for you, this is an option you should consider! Thank you, Bob and Denise. We hope to return to Maui someday, and will definitely look for availability at one of your properties.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home has made our stay in Maui more like a vacation than a tourist experience. After a day of activities, it was always comforting to know that we could return to your lovely home, cook our own meals, lounge by the pool, and most of all - experience the quiet solitude! I definitely plan to do a return trip... the jacuzzi bathtub and outdoor shower are the best!
