Great cottage in a perfect location! Easy to get to, very clean & had everything we were looking for
This cottage made our vacation very nice! What a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable and close to anything we wanted to do! Thanks so much!
Lovely and unique cottage
We really enjoyed our stay in Dolphin Cottage. The cottage itself is very unique and the setting and location were perfect for our needs. Easy walking distance to a great beach with good snorkelling. We found most basic needs were an easy 5 minute drive and many good restaurants within a 10 minute drive. The grounds of the International Colony Club are lovely and we really enjoyed the pool area. The cottage is decorated beautifully and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Josh the property manager was quick to take care of a couple of minor issues and the check in and check out process was seamless. Our only complaint is that there is no outdoor sitting area which made it a bit of a challenge to BBQ and it really would be the perfect home with an outside lanai to enjoy. There is a lanai but it is entirely closed in and we found it really wasn't an area that we wanted to sit in. Thanks again for a lovely week in Maui.
The overall experience was pretty good. Very spacious and for the most part clean. Pretty accurate from the photos, close to the pool. Had alot of accommodating things like hair dryer, washer and dryers, full kitchen, beach accessories, ect. The downfalls were as forewarned the bugs. Tiny ants everywhere and a huge centepied in the foyer. Had to wash the bugs out of the tub each each night. No bed bugs or anything like that though so its a normal tropical house environment. There was a random yellow mystery stain on one of the white bed blankets not sure what it was.. we just didnt use it. The beds were made nicely though and seemed freshly made. The Jacuzzi worked just fine, there is a chip of the plastic on one of the jets but doesnt prevent it from working, very big and nice for 2 people to gaze up out of the window above it, especially when it rained. The shower was really nice and spacious. The pool was just a mini walk from our place, looked nice but we never used it, we were to busy. It got pretty muggy, even with the fans on, there is no AC as posted, I'm not one who can stand the heat but it was okay. The biggest issue for us was parking, there was not enough space for guests. We had to park further away one night and walk a good distance back to our cottage. At first we made a way to park even so others could still back out but then someone used cones and started to block off space. We just wished there was more parking spaces cause it starts to inconvenience guests. Over all we would recommend staying here. There is alot of room in the house to sprawl out, really close to Lahina and black rock beach, we loved the bathroom and it was pretty uniquely designed, this would be good for couples or small families.
Classic Hawaiian style cottage
We really enjoyed the cottage at International Colonies. It was decorated with beautiful classic Hawaiian style decor, and the open plan worked well for me and my friends. The huge table was great for family style dinner, and the shower was so unique and amazing! The beds are super comfortable and there are a ton of fans to keep you cool at night. Would definitely come back!
Excellent place to stay when visiting Maui
Absolutely loved the property. Very convenient location, many places to sleep within the house. If you are not picky, and can sleep on the coach then that place can accommodate at least 10 people. Beautiful cottage with walking distance to the beach. Has everything you need and more. They provide beach chairs, towels, fins, snorkels, umbrellas for the beach.
All necessary utensils in the kitchen.
Josh has been very helpful and communicative.
Loved the place!!!!
House is VERY hot and dark
The Dolphin Cottage was lovely, but VERY VERY hot despite using all 11 fans and adjusting the shutters. It is impossible to stay in the house during the day as the heat becomes stifling. While the owners have repainted part of the house, it is still extremely dark especially in the bathrooms. There is also a lot of noise from the highway. I would not recommend this property.
We regret that we were experiencing record high temperatures and an unusual lack of sea breezes during this guest's stay. Like the large percentage of Maui rentals, this property does not have air conditioning (and is priced accordingly) since customary trade wind breezes normally provide sufficient comfort.
