Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The International Colony Club (ICC) is nestled behind the tracks of the scenic Sugar Cane Train on 10 acres in the beautiful Kaanapali Beach Resort area--Maui's #1 vacation destination! There are 42 individual cottages situated on quiet, meticulously landscaped grounds. World-famous Kaanapali Beach (consistently ranked among the top five beaches in the world by publications like Conde Nast Traveler Magazine) is just across the road and less than a five-minute walk from ICC.

A quintessential island cottage, Dolphin Cottage at Kaanapali offers a one-of-a-kind, artistic, and all natural environment that takes one back to old time Maui plantation style living. The custom-designed, two bedroom, two bathroom cottage has ocean views and more than 1,850 square feet of living space. Its steeply pitched roofline allows for lofty exposed-beam ceilings, while its plank siding and wooden louvered windows complete the charming cottage setting. Subtle details include antique wrought iron and brass light fixtures, built-in leather furniture, eight ceiling fans, seven sky lights, top-of-the-line appliances, full-sized washer & dryer, two-person spa tub, and even a seven-square-foot shower room!

In décor as in all else, the attention to detail at Dolphin Cottage is unsurpassed among West Maui vacation rentals. High-end furnishings and amenities are featured against a cheerful, relaxed, island-style backdrop. Over the Lanai entrance a world-class surfboard by a renowned Maui shaper welcomes guests. The pop of colorful art by local artists brightens the walls, natural fiber jute rugs are scattered about on concrete floors, and furnishings combine indulgent comfort with superior craftsmanship. In the Kitchen, koa wood 'Dolphins at Play' by a famous local sculptor hangs from the exposed-beam vaulted ceiling, and in the shower room Hawaiian hula dancers beckon from hand-painted tiles.

A premium queen-sized pillowtop sleigh bed is in the Master Bedroom, a premium queen-sized carved wooden bed is in the Second Bedroom, and a queen-sized sleeper sofa is in the Living Area. Dolphin Cottage comfortably accommodates up to six guests. A 42' HDTV with DVD player and video library, as well as a central sound system bring modern comfort to your stay in paradise.

Surrounded by tropical foliage, with bird song filling every room and gentle Trade Winds caressing through quaint wooden-jalousie windows, by day Dolphin Cottage is filled with natural sunlight. The freshly-painted interior enhances the daylight feeling. By night it is awash in romantic moonlight.

Please be advised that there are some drawbacks to this lush, natural, tropical environment. We're in the tropics where friendly lizards and insects thrive, and this is an open-air plantation cottage. Somehow, lizards and insects seem to find their way inside even though the cottage is fully screened and pest-control measures for unsavory critters are in place. It's all part of the Hawai`i experience!

Come to experience what it feels like to live at one with Hawaii's gorgeous natural environment. Visit Dolphin Cottage at Kaanapali!

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

I gave 5 stars for all the accuracy, but, the photos and description were good, but the house/property was great! Better than they described!! The house is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. There's no ac, but the breeze is perfect, and there are so many fans - it was never too hot - you truly feel like you are in paradise! It's a short walk across the road to a great beach in Maui. They have all kinds of toys and extra sheets, etc. for the couches/beds. Plenty of space for a large family. We had grandparents and a 2 year old with us and it exceeded everyone's expectation. Thank you for a great stay!

Not light enough for us. Highway noise

  • 3 of 5

Coming from Oregon, we're always looking for more sunlight. This accommodation is nicely done, clean, and spacious for 2 couples...with everything you need. The manager is very responsive.

The downside is the windows are all wooden slatted which cut out much natural light. This makes it dark inside. It's also painted a dark green/grey. I would recommend the owner paint it white to lighten it up. There is no outside lanai, as it has been closed in. There's not an easy place to sit outside. The highway noise is significant, but that may not bother some people. The ocean with a great beach is only a 5 minute walk from here.

Owner's Response: The owner has responded to this guest's suggestion by repainting much of the interior, providing a much brighter and lighter feeling. Mahalo!

Lovely unique Maui home.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the Dolphin Cottage. The house was super cool, the grounds were beautiful and the close access to the beach was great. Its listed as a two bedroom but it's very open, one bedroom doesn't have a door. Its nicely secluded from all the condos which was a huge plus for us.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage #4 was absolutely PERFECT for our stay in Maui! It's private and cozy, surrounded by attractive gardens in a small enclave of one- level units, but steps from Ka'napali beach. We were close to shops and restaurants (short drive away).

The cottage had everything we needed - kitchen supplies, beach items, snorkeling equipment - and it was decorated very nicely. Some days it was beautiful outside, but all we wanted to do was hang at the cottage!

We would highly recommend this property and will definitely stay here again when/if we return to Maui.

Great Location, Great Kitchen- Spacious

  • 4 of 5

Kitchen came very well-equipped- so nice to be able to cook in when we wanted to. The whole cottage was very well-equipped- so many towels, and nice to have plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards to take to the beach! The house itself and its location was great (plus the pool so close by, and fresh mangoes from trees above the pool were amazing!). Being granted an opportunity to drop off our stuff before check-in time due to our early arrival benefitted us greatly. Stereo system inside the whole place was a neat feature. Owner/ manager was very helpful! The only negative was that the photos don't appear to be current. We found the place darker than the photos suggested and not as airy and bright as we expected. Not really a negative but made our first impression not as anticipated. Quiet property, and overall a very nice place.
