Cozy, light-filled cottage, walking distance to Makawao town and a 15 minute drive from beaches. Our upcountry cottage is surrounded by lush gardens, with fruit trees and hibiscus in a private front yard, and on the slopes of Haleakala. Our cottage is comfortable and has everything you need for a unique Maui stay! (Photos are coming soon! We are getting this cottage as beautiful and comfortable as possible for you!)
Our cottage is about 600 sq feet and has many windows, allowing lots of light and a spacious feeling, while maintaining privacy with plants all around.
The living area has comfortable seating, a dining table for 4, and views to the garden with bamboo palms, red hibiscus, orange and papaya trees...
There are 2 small bedrooms, each with a very comfortable memory foam queen bed with super soft bed linens.
The kitchen area has plenty of storage, a full size refrigerator, an electric stove with oven and microwave and toaster/convection oven. It is fully stocked with coffee, tea, condiments and high quality pots, pans and knives, a Vitamix blender for smoothies...
The bathroom has a shower over tub and soft towels. We provide beach towels, beach chairs and a boogie board as well.
This home is EcoFriendly, with solar hot water. We use earth and human-friendly cleaning products, and provide shampoo, conditioner and soaps that are safe for the environment, have no artificial fragrances and are all natural. We use cotton sheets, towels, and napkins. We provide filtered drinking water and reusable water bottles so you do NOT need to buy bottled water. We recycle as much as possible.
We live in a beautiful part of the world, aware of how all our actions directly impact the earth and ocean, so do our part to add to the health and beauty of this island.
The house can accommodate four people max, with 2 queen beds and one bathroom. It works well for one couple, or a couple of friends...
Due to the combined Transient Accommodations Tax and General Excise Tax (state and county taxes) of fourteen and a quarter percent, that amount will be added on as a separate payment, so you don't have to pay the booking fees on the taxes as well. I'll send you a message with the amount after you book.
Guests have access to the entire 600 sq ft cottage, which has a bright, open feel. There is a covered seating area and a lovely private yard as well, with comfortable chairs to enjoy a morning coffee or end the day with a glass of wine...
You also have use of the washer and dryer.
There is off-street parking, and please inquire about renting our Hyundai Elantra GT, a 5 seat hatchback, with leather seats, sunroof and great gas mileage!
Other things to note
Our home has solar hot water, with ceiling fans in living and bedrooms, no need for air conditioning or heat, and we use all natural cleaning products, making this a wonderful choice to have as small an environmental impact as possible.
