About Anne Barber
Owner; Margaret, I grew up in New Zealand, I lived in Vail Colorado for over 20 years teaching skiing and developing a unique program Dynamic Skiing for Life. My husband and I started coming to Maui to windsurf, surf and scuba dive in the 80s as a perfect way to continue our love of the outdoors but this time we were playing in the ocean instead of on the mountains. We fell in love with Maui and the north shore and we bought our property in the early 90s. With a lot of love and family help we created the Menehune Cottage for vacation rental from the original Hawaiian home on this property. We love the location which is close to everything we love to do and we have enjoyed sharing this with our guests. Maui is a special place with its mountains, ocean, rainbows, soft air, music and the people. We have made this our home and now instead we visit the mountains for a little skiing, but we always return home. Margaret McIntyre purchased this cottage in 1993.
Anne Barber purchased this House in 1993

Beautiful, Charming, Perfect
We were so thrilled when we arrive at this charming Paia beach house and upset that we had to leave so soon! This house and property is very beautiful and exactly what you need for a small family. My wife could not stop talking about how cute the place was, bonus points for me! This magical oasis is filled with fruit trees and there is even a in-ground tub outside which just calls for a romantic evening! If you are a surfer is it a perfect spot in between Baldwin Beach and Ho'okipa, only a 5 min drive to either location. Paia town is also very close(~8-10 min). You can walk to Mama's Beach from the place which is great for the kids since it has a very large and nice tidal pool. Just make sure that you make a reservation for Mama's Fish house about a year in advance :). We met Steve, the owner, who is very nice and welcoming. He and Anne (the property manager) are readily available and will make sure that your stay is nothing but excellent. We had nothing but an excellent stay, we will be coming back. Highly recommended. Until then - Mahalo Nui Loa!
comfortable lodging near town and road to Hana
This well equipped home was conveniently located within driving distance of the beaches, Paia, Haleakala, and the road to Hana. Unfortunately we were informed after having paid that there would be work done on the outside of the house during out stay. This was a slight inconvenience, but the owner knew that it would occur before we rented, and we would have appreciated having that information prior to committing.
Quiet, comfortable home, great location
Our family of four (myself, my husband, two teen girls) spent two days in the house in March of 2016. It was spotless, large, very comfortable. It had a fully stocked kitchen, easy to cook it. The washer/dryer was very helpful. Great yard and jacuzzi. Can easily walk to Mama's fish house or the small store/deli. Neighborhood is quiet, residential. Roomy, airy space. Loved it!!
Lovely house with exellent location for windsurf
W spent 10 days in the Menehune house in August 2015. We are a family with 3 children of the age 16, 14 and 5. The size of the house was perfect for us. We loved the house, beautifully equiped with everything you may need from the beach towels to the beach chairs, the bodyboards for the kids and all the cookingware you are used to have at home. You do not feel being in a rented house but at some friends house. When we arrived the house was extremely cleaned with fruit basket and complimentary welcome beverage in the fridge! A big thank you to Anne who have organized our venue very professionnally and we felt awaited. We used the outdoor dining table and the barbecue every evening and it was so perfect for us. Kids just loved the jacuzzi and enjoyed it almost every late afternoon. The house is located in the north shore of Maui, in a very quiet and very convenient area, close to Mama's Fish house restaurant, which makes it close to Hookipa beach for windsurfers and Surfers and very close from Paia. We took kite surfing lessons every day for our first time in Kanaha beach and we now would love to come back next year to practice.. and for sure in the same house!!!
