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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Amazing place to stay in a great location.
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.
Our stay was excellent, the perfect place for a home away from home.
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!
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!
Ease of reservation, checking, and communication gets 5 stars. This piece of paradise has everything a visitor could want or need! Thanks for everything!
We had everything needed and we felt like home. Very clean, fully equipped, great location and I highly recommend.
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.
We enjoyed our stay at this cottage. Very clean and beautiful place. It is in a
very good location and close to beaches, shopping and restaurants.
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.
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.
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!
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!!
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.
The owners attention to detail and craftsmanship is flawless. It's very private and comfortable. Has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Highly recommend!
Janine's cottage was perfect for us on Maui. Interior was gorgeous with spacious living areas and a nice kitchen and bathroom. Grill was fun to use out front and parking was very simple. We loved staying here.
Great place to stay! It is just like home, clean and comfortable, best experience ever!
Perfect cozy and private cottage within easy walking distance of Maui’s best surfing beach and plenty of restaurants. Very modern and quiet. We are cool sleepers, so we especially enjoyed the bedroom A/C.
This was an incredible property which had a fully equipped kitchen, indoor and outdoor showers, beach gear such as umbrella, cooler, chairs, blanket and glorious A/C. The host was very prompt with communication and we felt very comfortable at our stay. We highly recommend this property! You are a short walk from the beach :)
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 absolutely loved our stay at this gorgeous cottage! The pictures do not do this property justice. We will definitely be back!
