Our second time staying at Janine and Ross' garden cottage and we had a fabulous time, yet again. Incredible accommodations, great location and wonderful hosts. If you are lucky to see this listing available, highly recommend you book it! Thank you both again for a wonderful stay!

This property was great. The little house was perfect, had all the amenities plus more. Kitchen was very well stocked for cooking. The outdoor shower was a hit. Food trucks down on south Kihei were good too. I would stay here again in a minute and i would recommend it to everyone.

Janine's cottage is remarkable, we have stayed in a few different places in Maui but this one has everything you could need. The beautiful plants that are all around this cottage and the tall fence that surrounds it all make it a perfect getaway with all the privacy and quiet we needed. This little place was just like home and simply perfect for our vacation. It was so nice to meet such a talented lady like Janine, her glass etching artwork is on display at the cottage and it will blow your mind. Thank you so much for having us, we look forward to coming back to your cottage.

Everything about this listing exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect - 200 meters away is the cutest little food court that has a ton of food options and was perfect for breakfast and lunches. Centrally located and in a good part of town! The unit was super nice, had everything you could ask for... we were shocked to find a shed with beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach umbrella and even underwater phone cases! The host was really sweet. If you are on the fence - just book already.

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. It was very clean, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully supplied with everything you need. The bed was very comfortable and the indoor and outdoor showers were amazing. Within walking distance to great food and beaches. Janine and Ross are great hosts that truly care about giving their guests a wonderful stay. Their communication is excellent and the cottage and gardens reflect their thoughtfulness. Thank you both for a wonderful stay and we look forward to returning.

Can't say enough about this property ! Few steps from the beach, enclosed entrance with outdoor shower, full shed of beach chairs,floats etc to use. The host is probably the nicest, most accommodating host I've ever had. The place was so cool with the way it is set up. Just a great little bungalow with everything you need. The host would get back almost immediately with any questions I had. The price for this place was exceptional. Wish we cold have stayed longer. When we return this is most definitely our first choice. Can't beat the location to all the shops and restaurants in the area. All walking distance. Food truck village was right down the road with about 15 food trucks ! Just a great place to stay. You won't be disappointed.

Amazing place to stay when you're in Maui. It had everything you needed to enjoy your stay and it is really close to some of the best restaurant's and beaches in Kihei. Would definitely recommend and would come back!


Janene W.

We loved staying at this spotless, comfortable, beautiful garden cottage! It is well-stocked with everything one could possibly want. It is close to everything. We could walk to a variety of restaurants, the beach, and even a gorgeous garden where there are several restaurants, food trucks, live music, free concerts, and more--the town's best kept secret. The cottage is very private with views of gardens from every window. We really enjoyed having beach chairs and boogie boards for the beach and the outdoor shower to wash off all the sand. We highly recommend this place!

The space was perfect for our needs, very clean, comfortable and well appointed! Communication was stellar! Very helpful host



September 2023
The host was super communicative, especially since we were there during the devastating fires. She is a great host. The place is very cute, has everything you need. Perfect choice for two people. Close to many beaches on the south side. Would definitely recommend staying here, as I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We so enjoyed the attention to detail in this immaculate cottage! Everything you need for a relaxing stay in Kihei. Close to the beach, eats, and shops! Thanks, Janine for encouraging us to come to Maui at this time. We are so glad we did. The Aloha is alive and well. Blessings!

Just left this fabulous cottage in Kihei! I’ve stayed in several places in the island including with friends, other rentals and some condos and this by far has been my favorite! Clean, comfortable, relaxing and a great location. A 10- 20 min walk can get you to a number of beaches, restaurants, a grocery store and more. I especially loved walking down to a close coffee shop for a morning brew. Janine was awesome to work with and I will definitely stay here again. Great for couples (my boyfriend stayed with me as he lives on island) so it felt like a little getaway for us both but when he worked and I had time to myself it was great to relax on the patio, walk to the beach, watch a show, read a book or nap. So also great for the solo traveler that likes some downtime amongst their travels. Property also very well landscaped and the plants and greenery made you feel like you had your own private oasis. So if you’re coming to Maui I would 100% recommend this cottage!!! Maholo Janine for my wonderful stay!!

We had an amazing stay at this impeccably kept cottage. Everything you could think of needing is readily available. We so appreciated all the beach equipment. We felt like we were the best equipped people out there! The bed is comfortable. The AC is whisper quiet in the room. Blissful sleep after all the outdoor play! We loved the internet radio in the front room. Fantastic sound quality. The outdoor shower is not your standard beach hose down. It is a luxury shower with beautiful tile and hot water. With high walls and a fancy locked gate, you have complete privacy for garden shower heaven. Janine is so gracious and kind and super easy to communicate with. The island needs lots of love right now! If you aren’t already booked to visit, I wholeheartedly recommend you book a stay here. You won’t regret it!

This cottage in Kihei was absolutely beautiful, and had everything we could have possibly needed. Everything was very modern and clean. The bed was so comfortable, and the shower was wonderful. There was a cute porch that was isolated from the road and surrounded by plants. It's just a short walk to the ocean, shopping and restaurants (we liked Kihei Cafe for breakfast)! If you're looking for a quiet place to stay in Maui, I highly recommend this cute cottage! 💜

Nice place with a fenced-in garden. Walking distance from the coast and several restaurants and food trucks. Clean and had all the necessities. Would recommend!

This was the best stay we ever had all over the world. Incredible clean, Janine and her husband are so lovely. This entire condo is better equipped than our home. Snorkeling gear and body bords were available for free on top of everything. We would like to give 6 stars. Absolutely fair value in comparison to other places. We could not recommend it more.


Ellie B.

I enjoyed a wonderful stay at this cottage. There is everything I could think of using available during my stay. The location is wonderful for walking to dinner or driving to a close beach for snorkeling. The host is very communicative throughout the entire process and I really enjoyed staying at this property. I would recommend and stay again!

The house was beautiful and quiet and a great location. It had everything we needed for the beach and the outdoor shower made it easy to eash the beach off when we got home. It was an absolute delight!

This place was amazing and the host was perfect! Easy check in/out, very clean, all the beach necessities available. Wouldn’t change a thing! I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in the area.


Allison R.

This property was truly perfect. The home is adorable, incredibly clean, comfortable, the perfect size, and the outdoor shower is a huge perk. The kitchen is well-stocked, there are every day essentials like hangers, hairdryer, shampoo/soap, and there is a huge shed full of beach gear, coolers, and even some toys for the beach! Janine was so attentive and easily accessible via text if any questions or issues arise. Super host, greatly appreciated her friendliness and courtesy. The house is also in a perfect location. There is a food truck park less than 2 blocks from the home with many options, coffee, music, and yard games. Overall, incredible experience. We will definitely be back!

We just wrapped up our stay at the Kihei cottage and it was so lovely. The photos are completely accurate for what you can expect the place to look like, and the amenities like the beach gear, the covered parking and the laundry were great. Janine was very communicative leading up to our stay and during it. The location was also great being only a block away from food trucks and the beach and within walking distance of the wonderful Kihei Caffe! We would absolutely stay again and can’t say enough about how great our time here has been.


Sam M.

Clean home close to the vibrant town of Kihei. Highly suggest visiting the Maui Gardens and adjacent food truck park!

We were thrilled with our stay at this beautiful ohana house. Janine was a gracious, friendly host. There is such attention to detail it took us by surprise. Little extras, such as lighted outlets, light sensor in the bathroom, filtered drinking water spigot, hand etched flower design on the doors (which Janine told us she did herself). The headboard was unique and beautiful and we were told it came from Australia. The private patio afforded us more privacy than we expected. The beach equipment storage area was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The pots and pans and knives were in excellent condition. The bed was excellent and we slept very well. We hope to be back some day!

This lovely amazing cottage is only 2 blocks from the beach, restaurants and shopping... but best of all it has a private outdoor shower. We had a great time and will return

Wonderfully appointed property, everything you could need was here, close to the beach and all the amenities within walking distance. All of that was important, as well as the kindness and hospitality of the host and hostess. Can not wait to come back for another visit,

Janine’s cottage was truly the perfect place for my sister and I for our last minute trip to Maui. We came to relax, and were surprised to see the cottage available, and knew it was exactly what we were looking for. The cottage has literally everything one could need, including beach equipment and bug spray, & had a beautiful private courtyard. The beach was minutes away, and we enjoyed going to south Maui gardens that’s on the same street as the cottage. The bed was comfortable and Janine was a dream to communicate with. I hope I can always stay here when coming to Maui!


Wendell F.

A well-appointed cottage 2 blocks from Kihei Beach. Every convenience imaginable, including AC, garden with privacy fence, and an outdoor shower. A perfect spot for 2 people.

This property was prepared to perfection. Every thing was not only clean and functional It was beautiful in its setting. The landscaping and court yard for example was stunning in its design and upkeep. Janine was readily available for questions and guidance but little communications was necessary because the house was so well organized and prepared. It was perfect!

Our stay here was so amazing! Everything we needed and more. Our host Janine is one of the kindest people we’ve met and made sure all details were perfect for us. Just sad we need to leave and hope to return some day to this amazing home. Thank you Janine…. We feel so very blessed!

Janine and her husband built the Guesthouse and truly thought of everything. Pride of ownership in everything they did. Enjoyed every bit of our stay. In fact, we felt so at home we wanted to extend our stay. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank You!

It was our first time visiting Maui and we feel extremely grateful and lucky to have stayed at Janine’s cottage! Not only was it so clean, it was decorated beautifully with a calming private garden and fountain just outside our door. We enjoyed sitting outside with a cup of coffee and pastries that’s easily found just a short walk down the street at Da Green Coffee or Lava Java. Actually most of our food and shopping was done just by taking a short walk around the neighborhood. They have highly recommended restaurants and food trucks, as well as lots of shopping and an amazing place to get a massage. Our favorite place to go every morning was the South Maui Gardens that has amazing coffee, food, and scenery, and it’s only a 5 minute walk from Janine’s cottage! One of the biggest perks was having the outdoor shower so we could rinse off after a day of snorkeling or walking around. Janine had the entire house stocked with anything you might need for a vacation, which made it so convenient for cooking at home. The outside shed made our vacation that much easier because she had beach chairs, an umbrella, coolers, snorkeling fins, and boogie boards so we didn’t have to rent or buy any of that. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, there were two efficient and strong a/c units in the cottage so we always felt great coming home after a day in the sun. Overall being able to stay at this cottage really enhanced our first visit to Maui and my fiancé and I will definitely stay here time and time again.

I booked based on the reviews I read and I must say that they were right. This cottage is everything it claims to be! The location is great, close to the main road with plenty of food, shopping and entertainment very close by (within walking distance if you choose to) right on the waterfront. If you will be traveling to the other parts of the island you will be glad to know that you are only 3 minutes from the main highway. The private garden is amazing, very well manicured and with a great tropical feeling that makes you want to be outside all the time. Although it looks to be close to the road do not worry, the vegetation, water fountains and decoration really make you feel like you are somewhere else, also the road is not heavily trafficked so we hardly heard any noise, even when seating outside. Great place for your morning coffee or just to have some quiet time before starting your day. BTW, the outside shower was a great touch, especially when coming back all sandy from the beach. The interior was superb. Anything you would need for the kitchen and bathroom is provided. We cooked and grilled several and did not find ourselves wishing for anything. There is even a water filtration system, so we did not have to buy any bottled water at the store. The bed was really comfortable and the blackout curtains were a hit The large couch and brand new TV were indispensable during our down/recuperation time. The flooring, countertop surfaces, wall art were all top notch. To be honest, as good as the pictures in the posting are, it really is better in person. We felt like we were in a resort but with all the amenities of home. Perfect combination! We also had the chance to meet the owner and she was such a nice person and a great help answering our questions and giving us advice. We will be going back to Maui and I will not stay in any place other than here.

If we could only stay for more days, we would. You don’t have to go anywhere else to be honest because it’s close to everything. Most of the things you need are walking distance; grocery, cafes, dessert places, restaurants, food trucks, markets, and best of all the BEACH! The cottage has everything you need, too. On top of that, it is beautiful inside and the landscape is amazing! We came late at night coming from the Big Island, but Janine and Ross made sure we got to find the place and check in smoothly. They even left some nice music playing when we got in. We thought that was sweet! The bed was more comfortable than a hotel’s. We could tell they really put a lot of thought and effort in this rental. We would definitely give this place all 5 stars!


April S.

This property is absolutely stunning and high Quality! The owners have thought of absolutely everything you would need. Super comfortable bed, high-quality towels, every household utensils, stunning gardens, amazing location close to evening activities and park beach access. This place truly is a gem, Look forward to future stays.

The cottage is perfect for a stay in Maui. I have to say we stayed here 10 years ago and it’s always a surprise after such a long time… mist places get dated… but wow! we were so positively impressed how well they took care of the cottage and how they updated so many things. Brand new TV with Netflix was amazing. Location is great- you can walk to the beach in just a few minutes- everything you need is very close. The cottage is super clean and made with a lot of love to detail. We stayed 3 weeks and didn‘t miss a thing- it‘s so perfectly equipped with everything. Beds are super comfortable too( and i am picky with that) The garden is just beautiful and you have full privacy. Janine is the most lovely host. If there is anything you need she is always availability. She also gives the best recommendations where to go and what to do. We will definitely come back and it won‘t be another 10 years ;) Thank you for everything Janine&Ross- MAHALO

From start to finish Janine and Ross were the most humbling hosts and so helpful during the entire trip. They have a beautiful place here that will leave you breathless. And they built the entire place and continue to work on it all the time. There’s not another place I’d tell anyone to stay. Thank you both again for everything I can’t wait to be back and to see you! Mahalo!

This property is absolutely phenomenal. Great size, location is wonderful, and Janine and Ross go the extra mile to make sure you are not just comfortable but that you also have what you need to really enjoy the island. The property itself is beautiful, updated, clean, and we enjoyed many comfortable evenings in the private lanai. Would definitely timely stay again. Thanks so much for having us!

My friend and I spent 4 nights here, and it was absolutely perfect for us! The host was very responsive and cordial. The place was clean, spacious, well-kept, and generally lovely. There were lots of thoughtful amenities that we were thankful to have. The location is convenient, fairly central to all the places we wanted to go and close to great beaches and restaurants. We couldn't stop talking about how great our experience was throughout our trip! We'll definitely stay again! Thank you!!

My wife and I feel so fortunate to have been able to book a stay at Janine and Ross's cottage. They provided absolutely everything we needed for a terrific stay and made the cottage feel like a home away from home. Incredibly clean, top of the line amenities and great location! Janine was wonderful to work with and responded quickly to any questions we may have had. Looking forward to the possibility of staying here again in the future!

Really beautiful little cottage, perfect for two. Had everything we needed to cook breakfast, play on the beach, and drive around the island. Close to food, shops, and the beach but still very private. Host was easy to work with and had everything ready for us.

This little hidden gem was perfect ! Everything you need and close to everything. We enjoyed our stay at Janine's place and would go back in a heart beat ! Super clean, very easy to check in. Janine goes above and beyond to make her guests feel welcome and comfortable! The cottage is close to all the shops, nice beaches. It's a short 30 minute drive to the airport. Book this place while you can if it's available, you won't regret it!

This home was the perfect stay for my friend and I. Everything was even better than described and I could tell the owner took the time to sanitize in between stays. Very clean and spacious for a cottage! Bed was comfortable and bathroom was well kept. We even appreciated the beach gear we were able to borrow. Much needed! I would definitely come back again.

My spouse and I loved everything about Janine’s VRBO! The cottage is conveniently located, it’s cute and quaint. The cottage was clean, bed was comfortable, and it had all the necessities to enjoy your stay. The beach chairs were an added bonus! The outdoors of this cottage feels very private even with it being located off a main street. The outdoor shower is so awesome and we will talk about it for years to come. Thank you Janine for allowing us to enjoy your cottage. Highly recommend to couples staying in Maui.


Pam C.

This garden cottage is is absolutely wonderful! We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Janine and Ross have thought of everything to make this an absolutely wonderful stay. It is close to the beach, centrally located to many things on the island and in a good neighborhood. Janine was a wonderful host who made our check-in easy and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. We were so happy to have chosen their place and will definitely be back!

My wife and I felt as if we were staying at a friend's cottage, and our friend had considered everything we needed. We enjoyed meeting Janine and appreciated her local knowledge.



October 2021
Place is cute and charming, but also functional. Private and separate - no worries at all about being an extension on the same lot. Beautiful foliage and decor inside and out. Supplies were just right - not cluttered, but just what you need, and quality stuff. Nothing broken. Everything works as expected! Internet was down the entirety of our stay there, but that's beyond Janine's control, and she went above and beyond to try and fix it for me. I have no complaints there. Just too bad it was a dead spot for Verizon too. But I didn't go to Hawaii for the internet service. The outdoor shower was my unexpected favorite! I enjoyed the experience over and over. They also have water gear in the shed in the side that was very useful and convenient. Location is perfect, central to the island, and steps away from the market area. Definitely check out Kihei Caffe - delicious! Honestly, I had a wonderful experience with the house and host. Well-priced too. Zero complaints! Thank you Janine! :)

What a find! It’s certainly easy to see why this property is so popular, and you’ll be very fortunate if you find an opening on the calendar. The cottage is squeaky clean, wonderfully constructed, and very nicely decorated. Janine and Ross are very helpful and easy to contact. It’s a bit of a walk to a swimmable beach, but that one is lovely Charley Young beach (and it also has a parking lot almost adjacent). It’s also an easy walk to several good places to eat—try Three’s Bar and Grill for great happy hour specials. A great stay in south Maui!


Andrew C.
October 2021
Janine's cottage was about as perfect as possible! The location is great, peaceful and quiet but a short walk to the beach and centrally located with easy access to airport and the national park among other places. The cottage was clean and very private, it really felt like your own space. All the amenities were extremely thoughtful and we were impressed by all the kitchen and beach equipment that Janine was generous enough to provide. I would stay here again without hesitation!!

The most darling little slice of Kihei heaven close to beaches, shopping, bars & restaurants. The cottage is absolutely adorable & in fact the photos do not do it justice. The bed was super comfortable and so were the pillows. There was not one thing that I went looking for in that cottage that the owner had not already thought of. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, small beach coolers, boogie boards & All of the beach gear was in great shape. You will also have your own stackable washer & dryer, blow dryer & even a hair straightener. Even lots of hangers which I never have enough of. Communication with owner was a breeze & even though their home is on the same property we never saw them. Such a wonderful place to stay in Kihei we really cannot wait to return. PS My husbands only complaint was that after 5 days in Hawaii the bathroom scale seems to be way off!!


Jason C.
September 2021
I can’t say enough great things about my host and the amazing home they have. The cottage was the perfect place for me and very comfortable and clean. Everything you need is available to you. It was like I lived in Maui and truly experienced what it was like to be apart of the community. The beach is within walking distance and the sunsets are the best I’ve ever experienced in my life and I’ve seen some beautiful sunsets. Locally the people are very kind and the food is good also. Hana trail is only 90 minutes away and Haleakala National Park is even closer. Please do yourself a favor and rent this wonderful place as soon as you can.

What a lovely cottage! It was a perfect size for us to stay in for a week, and we loved all the attention to detail, from the full size kitchen to the artwork placed throughout the cottage.

Everything about this home has aloha, free and clear detergent, coolers and fins available, bbq and the best AC. Soft sheets and blackout shades with the best comfortable bed. We struggle with hotels even and for the price this is the best spot on Maui!!!! Love the location too. Walk to dinner, coffee etc.

What an amazing place! You’ll never want to leave. This gorgeous private little bungalow is perfect for romantic getaways. Tastefully decorated and fully equipped. The outdoor shower is incredible! The bed and linens are heaven. The host is very responsive and really sweet. Highly recommend for those that want something a little more intimate than the big box condos.

This was such a great place to stay and the hosts were amazing! The beach was about a 3 min walk. Shops & food were within walking distance as well. The cottage felt luxurious & the private garden was such a great place to relax while listening to the water fountain. They provide quality beach gear to use which was very handy & window shades for your rental car. I will definitely stay here again & highly recommend this place to anyone!

We've been staying here for eight years now. It really is our home away from home. Janine is always adding little things here and there. You never know what new thing you will find on your next trip. It is very comfortable, quiet, and a true getaway from the stresses of life. It truly is like coming to a second home, and visiting with a friend you haven't seen in a year. If you happen to find a rare opening in her schedule, snag it before it's gone, and enjoy your stay!

We stayed in Janine's cottage for a month this year and, as in past years, the cottage, again, didn't disappoint. It's well maintained, clean and our favorite. We'll be back.

We love that we were able to return to Janine & Ross's cottage once again, it is truly a home away from home for us. The cottage has all the amenities you would need from the beach chairs to everything in the kitchen. Janine is always updating the cottage and all the small details do not go unnoticed. The location is perfect with Cove Park down the street - great surfing beach. You can walk to the restaurants and to sunset. We look forward to returning!

Wonderful as always. It's a shame it's booked so far in advance, we'd like to stay more often.

We have just returned to wintery Canada after another lovely visit to Maui. We had the privilege of staying in Janine's cottage once again, and as return customers, we can only say that it is absolutely perfect for us. Janine has put so much time and effort into making this the ideal private get away. The cottage is well set-up and very tastefully decorated with a comfortable bed and furnishings. Janine has lovely taste and has worked hard to create a restful, charming atmosphere for her clients. She pays attention to the smallest details and continually makes changes to keep things up to date and convenient. She is also readily available to answer any questions or concerns. The location is only a very short walk to shopping, many good restaurants, parks and beaches. Both the yard and cottage are immaculately clean and well furbished. We enjoyed many evenings barbecuing and eating our supper outside in the beautiful yard. There are also beach chairs, boogie boards and other beach supplies for use, eliminating the need to purchase them. As well, there is the luxury of an outside shower to rinse off any beach sand. Kihei is also a short drive away from other Maui sights if one is looking to explore the island. We have stayed in different locations in other years and find that this is the most convenient place to use as a home base. We always feel like we are coming 'home' when we walk into this cottage. Janine's vacation home really is one of Maui's little gems, and we look forward to returning next year!

The cottage was the perfect place for our vacation! It has a very nice floor plan with a big kitchen and everything was very clean. While the cottage sits at the front of the owners property, the cottage is very private and easily accessible from the road. The place had all the amenities we needed and more. There was a washer and dryer, tons usb outlets, a bluetooth speaker, extra towels, a BBQ, an outdoor shower, tons of beach toys. On top of how great the property was, the location was amazing as well. Its right next to a little shopping center in Kihei with lots a great food and a bunch of bars, so its a great spot for a younger couple that wants to go out. The Cottage is also just a short drive away from all of the resorts if you want to check those out and its not too far from Kahului or LaHaina, only about 30 or 45 mins away, respectively. Overall we had an amazing time!

This was our first time in Maui, and WOW were we impressed. Janine and Ross provided us with amazing accommodations! The cottage was nicely located within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shops, groceries, you name it. Finding the place was no problem. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we were at home. The garden is beautiful making it a perfect patio with lots of privacy. You really do feel like you are in paradise. Walking into the cottage, we were immediately awed! The place was immaculate, inviting, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Everything was provided, from beach towels to dishes, beach gear and even a hair straightening iron! The filtered water in the kitchen was very appreciated, no need to buy bottled water. The king size bed was super comfortable, and loved being able to sleep with the windows open. This place is truly a treasure, and exceeded all our expectations. We are so grateful to have found this place for our stay in Maui. Thank you Janine for all that you do to make a dream vacation a reality. We hope to be back soon!

We had a great stay in Maui! This place has everything you could need and is very private. We used all the beach equipment in the shed. Very close to everything. Thanks for the great place to stay!! We will be back.

Clean, well equipped, lovely enclosed lanai, easy access to beaches. Wonderful value for a couple with a car who love to explore, but also economize by cooking many of our meals on site. Quiet and private. Owners friendly and very accommodating when needed. We highly recommend this setting,

We just returned from our trip to Maui. I can honestly say I've never stayed anywhere on a trip that I felt more at home. This cottage is incredible. We didn't want to leave! Janine has thought of absolutely everything you could possbly need for your stay. We especially enjoyed the private lanai and garden area. It was perfect for sitting out in the evening and enjoying breakfast each morning. Ross even picked us fresh papaya's from their tree. It's within walking distance to many area attractions, including beaches, that it's any easy walk but is also very easy to get around by car. We are already planning for our next trip. Mahalo Janine and Ross

We stayed at the cottage for 11 days in August. We were so impressed with how nicely the cottage was furnished and all the amenities that were provided. It had a wonderful patio with beautiful flowers and plants-very tranquil. We appreciated that it was a short walk to the ocean, restaurants, shops, and grocery store. The cottage is very private and quiet. Great selection of beach equipt for you to use! We usually stay in a large condo complex. Perks of the cottage: convenience of the car parked right outside, large private patio with a gas grill, W/D, large flat screen TV with sat TV, good ventilation/fans or A/C to keep you cool. We will definitely recommend this to friends and hope to return soon. Thanks, Janine and Ross for sharing.

Janine provided us with great hospitality and a very comfortable accommodation for our honeymoon. We enjoy the privacy of the location; from the private parking spot right in front of the cottage to the absents of hotel noises. Most of the amenities are there; towels and linens, beach towels and equipments, utensils and china, and cookwares. The only thing we had to get is laundry detergents for our stay. Although we didn't do any couch surfing there is a sony bluray, and flatscreen TV with hundreds of channels. The mattress we have to say is more comfortable than our own, and we usually are uncomfortable on hotel's mattresses. Located in Kihei, it is a great location for us as we found our self driving back and forth to Lahaina and Wailea often. We left knowing we made a great choice and enjoy our stay in Maui, thanks to Janine.

On our first visit to Maui, we could not have found a better place to stay then this little gem of a cottage. Not only is the place comfortable, it has everything you need. We used the beach accessories (chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear and cooler) just about every day and even found flashlights for our after dark walk along the beach. The kitchen is fully stocked and we took full advantage of both the washer/dryer and satellite TV. The owners are very accommodating and welcoming. And, yet, they are not intrusive, at all. This truly is a little, private retreat within walking distance of the ocean front and many, many shops. This is a place we'll definitely stay again on return trips to the island.

Maui is always a special place and this cottage is a perfect place that feels like home. It’s a relaxing place in the central Kihei area. It is closed to everything including the beach and beauty. I love this place because it’s a wonder cottage that offers lots of serenity and Aloha. Mahalo for offering a great vacation place to stay on Maui.

My wife and I stayed here for 9 nights in April 2011. We both couldn't be happier with the place as it provided everything we needed, and the description/pics of the place on the Homeaway website were very accurate. No surprises. The cottage was clean, well taken care of, and comfortable. It is close to alot of good beaches, grocery stores, markets, etc. Everything we needed for the beach was provided for us so that made things a lot easier. We had great times sitting outside bbq'ing, watching the geckos run around, and of course, drinking pina coladas! I Highly recommend this cotttage and would stay there again. Thanks Janine & Ross!

Stayed at Janine's cottage for the third time at beginning of April 2011. That alone should tell anybody all they need to know! We're the type of people that won't complain about bad service in a restaurant, we just don't ever go back. We love this cottage, it feels like we're at "our Maui home" every time we go back. Janine and Ross do a great job in keeping it updated, so there's always something different. This time it was granite counter tops, just beautiful! We like the location, with it's closeness to great South Maui beaches. Yet, it's still private enough to feel relaxed. Both Janine and Ross are super friendly and a real joy to talk with. They really go out of there way to accommodate you. Just can't say anything bad about this rental, we'll always look to stay here whenever Maui is our destination.

We absolutely loved this cottage! It was everything and then some! Janine and Ross have put a lot of thought into the comfort of their guests. We did not need a thing. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, cookware, utensils, blender, toaster, etc., etc. and even a coffee bean grinder for the Kona coffee that we purchased! The bed was wonderful, we slept so good every night! The garden was beautiful...we enjoyed cooking steaks on the grill and listening to the fountain. Around the side is a shed filled with beach gear; umbrella, chairs, boogie boards, etc. It was nice having a washer and dryer too. The location is perfect! We were within a block of the beach and many times we walked there to catch the sunset. We were also very close to shopping and restaurants. On our first night, Ross was helpful in recommending the Five Palms Restaurant, which is located further down on the beach. Janine also provided us with discount grocery cards, a book of the best restaurants and a map of the island. These two were so very helpful and accommodating, but respected our privacy as well. The cottage is exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. We really felt at home and can't wait to come back. This was my first time to the islands - and I fell in love with Maui! Aloha, Laura & Mike
