Lovely cottage with a great view
This property was an exceptional value. For a stand alone beachfront cottage with these amenities I was surprised and pleased at the cost. But even more important than the cost, it was a wonderful experience. The cottage has everything you could hope for--well stocked and so many special touches from fresh Hawaiian fruit to a celebratory bottle of champagne for my husbands birthday. It was a pleasure to be able to make breakfast each day in a well equipped kitchen (there was even gluten free bread in the freezer when we arrived--a welcome surprise.) There are books, games, many snorkel sets, a guitar, and even a surf board. There was a convenient full sized laundry set up that we used more than once after days at the beach. Also, there is a good sized secured yard with great parking--essential for us to load/unload and store our watersports equipment. We enjoyed the small beach across the street, but because of the rocky bottom and good sized waves we found swimming a bit of a challenge--better for surfing. I was concerned about the privacy of the cottage--always hard to determine from photos--it could not be better. It is a gated cottage set away from the road and away from any other houses including the main house which is well above you on the hill behind the cottage. Many of the prior reviews have described the hosts--and all of my email exchanges with Gail were lovely and she is a wealth of information. But honestly, I am more of a self-contained traveler who arrives in a location for a specific purpose--not one of those people that enjoys the engaging warmth of a B&B--more of a leave me be and I'll find my own way type. So I was a little nervous seeing the reviews of joining in on family parties etc. For others like me--let me assure you that while the hosts are incredibly welcoming and invite you via text/email to join them if you wish, they are in no way pushy and if you decline they give you all the privacy you want. It was the perfect blend for us and the mark of a truly good host who is able to gauge their guests and accommodate them. Thanks for a great start to our stay on Maui!Tamara K.

Charming and peaceful
The cottage was absolutely perfect for our needs, it was so well equipped that we needed for nothing. Would 100% recommend it to anyone looking for a great location with your own independence. Thanks to our hosts Gail and Jordan.Angela S.

Relaxing like a Local
Gail and Jordan were perfect hosts. So friendly and hospitable. The cottage was clean and well stocked. Beautiful sunsets and nice calm morning listening to the ocean. Close to grocery and Target. We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage. Very relaxing.stacy f.

We had a wonderful time, owners were very helpful and were in contact with us before, during and after our vacation. The Cottage is cute, clean and in a very nice location right across the street from the ocean were we watched surfers and whales every day. Very convenient to the airport and short rides to many beaches. Thanks for the snacks and the pineapple, and even a few drinks in the fridge. Hope to be back soon.Keith S.
