About Suzanne Haines

We are two couples who love the simple magic and outdoor lifestyle of Hawaii. We pooled our resources to find a piece of paradise in Maui for our families, friends, and hopefully someday our grandchildren to enjoy together.

Suzanne Haines purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Suzanne Haines chose West Maui

We began our extensive search for the perfect family property and found it at International Colony Club with its 10 acres of lovely tropical gardens and pools, a quiet setting, friendly ambience, and a roomy cottage where we can spread out with family and friends, relax, and enjoy spectacular sunsets from our enclosed lanai. We wanted the perfect beach across the street for snorkeling, swimming, strolling at sunset. Paradise found!

What makes this cottage unique

Easy-access private cottage next to heated pool in lovely complex adjacent N. Kaanapali golf course for all types of travelers and adventurers; foam and gel king bed in master with ensuite bath; cooling gel foam-topped twins in second bedroom with adjacent bath; high-end linens; fully stocked kitchen with top of the line counter-top appliances, Cuisinart cookware, quality cutlery, gourmet coffee grinder and coffee maker; even an ice crusher for your sunset beverage on the spacious enclosed lanai. WiFi (no streaming). Refurnished with comfortable queen sleeper sofa; three lounging areas with lots of airy, sunny windows. One large enclosed lanai; separate smaller open lanai. Fan-cooled and comfortable with extra fans for your comfort. Beach towels, wheeled ice coolers, several beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, (2) bicycles with market baskets; newer Weber Spirit gas barbecue. Both lanais offer complete privacy with sunset views. Well-maintained, clean, comfortable home away from home.

Beautiful cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Very happy to have found this rental. It worked out great for us (three adults, one baby).

The cottage itself is laid out nicely and well kept, with a short 5 minute walk to a great beach.

Most of all, we appreciated the "lived in" feel of the cottage. Especially with the kitchen, grill and beach gear. There are many reasons we were happy to find this rental instead of booking a hotel room.

The cottage did get pretty hot during the day without AC, but we were usually gone at that time and it cooled down nicely at night.

We'll definitely be back, and recommend friends and family snag this rental if available for their Maui vacation.

Another fantastic Maui experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at this cottage. This place is equipped with pretty much everything needed for a family stay. The kitchen is not lacking in any gadget that you might need for meal prep. There are ample beach supplies including beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, coolers, etc. We brought our own snorkel gear. This year we took a drive to Hana and we're treated to spectacular waterfalls, gorgeous beaches and a hike in the bamboo forest. We also attended a slack key guitar performance at Napili Kai resort. Every time we stay in this beautiful cottage we feel at home. The owners take great care to make this a comfortable and welcoming place. Planning to return again next year.

Owner's Response: Aloha! We loved having you and your family for the third time. You are great guests who know how to soak up the Maui experience. We try to keep the cottage updated, which includes the kitchen gadgets that we all like to use. Your trip to Hana makes us realize it's been too long since we've taken that beautiful drive. We will put the slack key show at the Napili Kai on our list for our next time on Maui. We look forward to your next visit, and more Maui recommendations from you!

shaka second stay

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this cottage was as "shaka" (which means great) as the first has been. Lots of space, clean, next to the refreshing pool and in beautiful and well kept

surroundings. Parking next to the cottage. All in all a great location for your vacation plus supernice owners!

Very comfortable and well-appointed cottage

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed three days but wished it could have been longer, because the cottage was beautiful, roomy and obviously well taken care of. It felt like a home, because of all the little touches: beach chairs, bikes, even a flashlight in the mailbox in case you need it at night. There s plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy in their own way, and the pool is conveniently close. We highly recommend #19!

Perfect paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Suzanne's cottage could not have been more perfect, relaxing, or wonderful. The cottage has absolutely everything a person could want for a relaxing beach holiday; every detail has been thought of and provided. The location is superb - away from noisy resorts, but a 5 minute walk to some of the most beautiful beaches in west Maui. The only thing we didn't like was leaving! We would highly recommend Suzanne's cottage to anyone - couple, family, or even solo travelers looking for a little piece of paradise to call their own.

Owner's Response: Aloha and mahalo for a great review! We are delighted the cottage worked well for you for your rest and rejuvenation stay. We love the snorkeling choices on the west side. All the beaches and bays offer something unique and beautiful. Kahekili/N. Ka'anapali beach across the highway is our favorite for morning swims and turtle watching. We look forward to your future getaways at the cottage!
