Please Note: If you have more than 10 guests the cottage will need to be booked as Maui's rental permit law requires 2 guests per room. That being said, children under the age of 3 can stay with their parents in the same room and not count toward the occupancy rate. As the main house only has 5 rooms, it can only sleep 10 guests. To rent the cottage adds an extra $125 per night and adds $150 to the cleaning fee. If you do instant booking, the cottage will not be automatically booked, but it will be added through a payment request should your party be over 10 guests. Should your party include 10 guests + some children under the age of 3, it will be up to the owners discretion whether the cottage needs to be rented or not.
