When I booked Aunty Kali's Cottage, I never imagined that paradise would be ours for a week. I'll tell you that the pictures really don't do it justice. The views of the ocean at sunset, the beautiful native plants and flowers, and even the wildlife (mongooses and all!). Having a pool and bar even made the cottage the Happy Hour spot for our family to come to before dinner. Aunty Kali was also amazing, greeting us with a warm smile and a delicious homemade banana bread. She was so attentive and hospitable and we will, without doubt, be returning time and time again.

We were able to share Carriie’s Cottage this time with family. It was fun to see their initial reaction when we opened the doors to our oasis for a week. They were blown away! Carrie’s attention to every detail makes it such a special place to stay on Maui. It’s our favorite by far!

We have been lucky enough to stay at this wonderful property and it is always an amazing experience. Our family loves the private outdoor area and pool - it makes you feel like you have your own tropical oasis. The owner is kind, caring and responsive. She is always available and easy to contact, yet makes sure you have all the privacy you want during your stay. This property is a true gem!

We've stayed at this property multiple times over multiple years. It is by far the best place to stay that we've experienced in decades of traveling to Maui. The host (Carrie) is pleasant and caring and really wants to make sure that you have a great time while you're on site and has become someone who we look forward to seeing every year. The house itself is a great size (not too big, not too small), but the real special part are the outside areas that allow for pure relaxation. You'll see amazing sunsets while relaxing alongside the pool. It's as good as it gets.

This was our 2nd time staying at the cottage. Again, everything was perfect and we totally relaxed. We visit Maui every couple of years and we hope to continue to stay here as it will be hard to stay anyplace else! Banana bread is an added bonus.

Our stay @ Auntie Cali’s Cottage went beyond our expectations. This is a hidden gem in paradise! One of our best stays in Maui. Truly an awesome 30 year anniversary celebration! You have to visit yourself because words alone cannot express how much we loved this stay. Carrie is a wonderful host and easy to work with. Her brother Dan is very friendly and her mother makes an awesome banana bread. Most humbled and grateful for our stay. Thank you Carrie❣️

The cottage and grounds are a lush, tropical paradise. Everything is clean and well-maintained. I loved the pool and hot tub and spent hours lazing in the sun. Terrific hosts. We will return!

Move over Disneyland, we found THE most magical place on earth. We booked this cottage for our 30th Anniversary, looking for a private, relaxing getaway, and we were not disappointed! From the moment we stepped through the double doors to the PRIVATE pool/outdoor bar/outdoor barbecue and 2 separate outdoor showers, it was breathtakingly beautiful and by far exceeded our expectations! The cottage is beautiful, very clean (I didn’t see one bug in the house our entire stay) and very well stocked with everything you need to prepare your own meals. It definitely had the home away from home feel. The cottage may be in the back of the hosts home, however, they did a great job of separating the two so it is extremely private with your own entrance. We rarely saw the hosts (giving us our privacy) but they were available if we needed anything. Thank you Carrie and family for making our anniversary stay unforgettable. We couldn’t have found a more incredible place to stay!

This oasis was beautiful, but for the price.. it could have been better. The pool was dirty up until the pool guy got there halfway through our stay, this attracted more mosquitoes and bugs than it normally would. There were tiny beetles in the house itself, due to the live plants that are in the home. They have avoided cleaning out a kitchen cabinet that has old medicine and food in it. They keep alcohol in the outdoor bar that has been open and used. The pool shed is especially dirty with snorkel masks that have bugs all inside the breathing tubes. Although they don’t have bed bugs that I seen, they also didn’t have a bed bug cover to protect themselves from getting bed bugs. Although the place was private, it wasn’t really all that private as it was in their backyard. They no longer have a private chef that they are close to and can have come to you and as far as I could tell, a masseuse. You are however able to find one yourself and have them come to you. The people that own the property are really nice people, and greet you every time they see you. We did really like them, but nearly $1000 a night for 2 people? For that price alone, the place should be maintained a little better. You can find resorts cheaper than that with a lot better maintenance and better privacy. The place is private and gorgeous, with a decent view of Wailea and the ocean in the distance. We did enjoy our stay a lot, but if I could give advice, don’t go for a honeymoon.

This was our first visit to Hawaii, for my 50th and our son’s 16th birthdays, and it was exactly the special place we had in mind to celebrate those milestones. Carrie considered every detail - from welcome treats and delicious home-baked banana bread to beach gear to a fully-stocked kitchen to the gorgeous pool and gardens - we didn’t want or need for anything during our stay. It was very close to the resorts of Wailea, many beautiful beaches, shopping and restaurants. We were here during the devastating Maui wildfires and felt extremely fortunate to be staying in this peaceful oasis. We are praying for Maui’s recovery and hope to be lucky enough to return again. We would recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Maui.

Auntie Kali’s cottage was perfection from our arrival (and Grandma Jean’s delicious banana bread) until we sadly had to check out and return home. Carrie was communicative but never intruding. I said more than once we can only return to Maui if we stay in this oasis again! Truly an amazing stay!

This was our second stay at the cottage and of course it was phenomenal. The cottage was just as clean and beautiful as always. Carries attention to detail is what makes this property so special. Grandma Jean, Dan and Carrie. We love you for making us feel like Ohana.

Carrie, Dan & Chris were awesome, there if you need anything. The plant life had grown a little in four years but the landscaping and amenities were the same and perfect! It really is a paradise, so relaxing at the pool, the views of the water and sunset is breathtaking. We look forward to a repeat (again)!

The cottage offers every imaginable outdoor amenity plus beautifully decorated, fully equipped accommodations. Loved having all the beach gear on hand. Attention to detail shows throughout the property. Location was perfect for beach access, groceries and restaurants. Our faves were the outdoor shower and incredible star gazing. Great communication and hospitality. Thanks Carrie. Can’t wait to return!

There are only 5 stars available, but this paradise deserves 11! This was our second visit and we have already booked our third. There aren't enough ideal synonyms to describe the beauty. Words and pictures just don't do it justice. It's absolutely wonderful!!

This is our second trip back to Maui and our second time staying here. We absolutely love this place and can't say enough good things about the property. The accommodations are comfortable, and the views are outstanding. We find this to be the perfect location with easy access to all areas of the Island with a short drive. We will definitely be back! Mark & Deann

We’ve been coming to Maui for years, but this was our best vacation ever. The cottage is clean and well-appointed. The grounds are so lush, so beautifully maintained, so private and secluded. We also loved the pool and hot tub. Carrie was so friendly and helpful. Perfect holiday

Auntie Kali's Cottage is, indeed, magical. The landscaping is beyond lush. You will enjoy the birds serenading you in the morning. We only used the outdoor shower even though there are two inside. Carrie has decorated and stocked the cottage so well. It is indeed a tropical paradise. She , truly, has thought of everything. Don't book too many excursions as you will want to be here, in the pool, most of the time. See other recent reviews that describe all that Carrie provides. Can't wait to come back for our third visit. Mahalo, Carrie for a wonderful, relaxing getaway with our daughters.

I am ambivalent about my talking about this “Hawaiian cottage“. Ambivalent because I want to tote it’s many excellent features which include privacy, pool, country feel, comfortable bed, excellent outside shower, first class chase lounges and furniture as well as the tiki bar. On the other hand I do not want a lot of people to know about it because it decreases its availability for my own use in the future. Carrie, The manager, could not have been more welcoming even though she was out of town. She make sure her brother was here to welcome us and walk us through the property. Her mother Jean, 96, baked us a wonderful loaf of mango bread. We want to come back.

This is our second stay at this amazing cottage. The cottage itself is so cute and stocked with everything you need and the outside is beautifully landscaped with a sparkling pool and spa. Great location, close to beaches, shopping, dining and airport. The hosts are great too! Really special people that really want you to experience your vacation.

I honestly don't think it gets better than Auntie Kali's cottage in Maui. We have stayed a lot of places over the years and both my husband and I agreed this was one of the best places we've ever stayed. We will definitely be back for a return stay in the future. The outdoor space really make the experience - from the lush landscaping, pool, fire pit, outdoor bar to the grill & hot tub, we joked that we used every inch of the place. Carrie, Chris, Dan and Grandma Jean are also some of the most thoughtful & kind hosts you will ever come across. In particular, Grandma Jean's homemade mango bread blew us away. We bought banana bread on the Road to Hana and agreed her mango bread was much better. Also worth noting that we brought our 2 year old with us and the walk in shallow area of the pool area was so perfect for him. We also really appreciated that the cottage had a toddler sized life jacket and sand and beach toys in addition to beach chairs, an umbrella, beach towels and a small cooler that made trips to the beach (when you can pull yourself away from the amazing pool) a breeze. Carrie, Chris, Dan & Grandma Jean - THANK YOU! We can't wait to return. Grandma Jean - our two year old loved you :)

We had an amazing 2 weeks at Auntie Kali’s cottage. The location is perfect for traveling around Maui, and the house and grounds are spectacular - like your own private resort! The house is well-appointed, and Carrie has thought of everything you might need while you’re visiting. Highly, highly recommended!

Carrie and her family were the best hosts. We could not have asked for anything more. Our flight was delayed so we didn’t get to the cottage until after dark and Carrie had the yard lit up for us—the photos do not do it justice! My husband and I were in awe of the property. It is amazing. I couldn’t get over all the beautiful tropical plants. The view of the surrounding islands is gorgeous. The pool and hot tub are fantastic and on our “exploring” days, coming back afterward to relax in them and enjoy the property was the perfect end to the day. Even on the days we just hung out at the cottage, it was excellent - we felt like we were in paradise. I’d get up at sunrise just to watch and listen to nature come alive around me. If you enjoy bird watching, you will have entertainment all day long at the cottage. While I was in the (wonderful) outdoor shower, a red crested cardinal hopped right over and then flew to the tree branch in front of the shower. Amazing! We even saw zebra dove babies. The cottage was clean and beyond fully stocked, we had all we needed and then some. Grandma Jean’s banana bread and the apple bananas fresh from the yard were the icing on the cake. Thank you for giving us the best honeymoon ever! I cried before we left bc I was so sad to leave the property. It was heavenly and we hope to return!

...or IT SHOULD BE! If you see this property for rent, book it! We were so fortunate enough to have found dates to book that worked with our schedule. When we arrived we were greeted by Carrie and Grandma Jean with homemade banana bread and fruit waiting for us. Talk about above and beyond hospitality. The property was seriously something out of a magazine. Our own oasis, which our daughter loved every bit of. Carrie truly thought of everything. I can honalestly say we've never stayed in a more pristine location in all of our travels. This by far takes the cake. We will, with upmost certainty, be back. The Johnsons Thanks Carrie and Jean. You two are gems 🥰

We had a wonderful and relaxing time while staying at the cottage. We were impressed with the luscious landscape and how perfect the cottage is setup. We found it like a home away from home as it was fully stocked. We wanted to go to the beach but it was so nice we stayed in the private pool and enjoyed the Sun and sounds of tropical birds. The pictures really do not capture the beauty and serenity this tropical oasis provides. If you see the dates available BOOK IT NOW! We are already looking to return next spring. Carry is an amazing host and can not thank her enough to opening her home for others to enjoy.

This private paradise was PERFECT. The property is quiet and secluded, with a beautiful ocean view, sparkling pool, charming cottage and tiki bar. We found it nearly too good to be true. Evening visits from a herd of deer (who came to drink from a trough below the yard) was the icing on the cake. Local beaches are an easy ~5 minute drive away, as are terrific restaurants.

We had high expectations for Auntie Kali’s Cottage, and we were blown away by how amazing this property is.

Words can’t begin to describe this absolutely perfect place in paradise🌴🌺 From the moment you walk through the gates into your private resort, the cares of the world disappear. Carrie and her family have truly created a place like no other. There are so many favorites…from the delicious homemade banana bread and welcoming fruit basket, to the outdoor shower and serene tropical landscape. Once we parked the car, we never left the property. Although our time had ended, we were not leaving without our next vacation booked at Auntie Kali’s Cottage. Mahalo, Carrie ~ look forward to seeing you all again in 2023!

We loved every minute of our stay at this amazing Cottage. The private pool and backyard dining area (complete with lounge chairs, Tiki bar, dining tables, BBQ, outdoor shower, grass lawn to name just some of the features) were landscaped beautifully, and embodied everything that makes Maui such a wonderful place. Carrie was the consummate host, checking in and being there when we needed her, but also giving us the utmost privacy to enjoy our stay. We will be returning as soon as we can. Thank you Carrie!

This is the fourth or fifth time that we've stayed at this property. It is what the whole family looks forward to all year, and it never disappoints. It is a unique location that provides space and privacy that you are not going to find in any other vacation rental on Maui. It is everything you'd want for a relaxing, pleasant stay. The hosts are also wonderful people and are just the best to work with.

Don't think twice! If you are lucky enough to stumble upon this listing and it's available just book it! My family stayed at Auntie Kali's Cottage in November 2022. It was truly a dream property. The whole place is beautiful and Carrie has thought of everything. The kitchen has all the tools you need for cooking (even an amazing pineapple corer that is my new favorite gadget!). There are tools for the grill, firewood for the fire pit, floaties for the pool, and coolers and beach chairs for the beach. The house is very private and located right next to a nature preserve where you can watch birds and see the deer. There is a view of the ocean, and all the beaches of Kihei and Wailea are just a short drive away. Carrie's mom baked fresh banana bread for our arrival and Carrie generously answered all of our questions. I can't recommend Auntie Kali's Cottage enough!

The moment you step into your private oasis you will find it hard to leave. Backed up to a private wildlife reserve your views go on forever into the sunset. The pool is warmer than most and the spa is perfect. Really enjoyed the firepit on nights were we wanted to just relax after the sun. Love this place and will be back again. Carrie is a great host and always available if needed.

5 stars are not enough to describe this property and its owner. if we could have given 10 stars, we would have. Carrie and her family were the most wonderful, friendly hosts. from the detailed architecture of the cottage, the delightful Hawaiian decor of the tiki bar to the private, refreshing pool and yard, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. we did not want to leave. a short, easy drive to Wailea for shopping and dining. we will return to Maui again and when we do, Aunt Kali's Cottage is at the top of our list of places to stay. Thank you Carrie and family for your wonderful hospitality and sharing your beautiful home with us.

My wife and I couldn't have been more pleased with the Cottage, Tropical Grounds, Pool, Tiki Bar and everything else. We used it as a base for bike rides around Maui and the property was a wonderful Oasis to come back to after riding. The Cottage is private, quiet and the sounds of all the birds was wonderful. Carrie was great and went above and beyond to make our visit a wonderful experience. Highly recommend the place.

My husband and I stay at Aunt Kali’s cottage with our two boys ages 8 and 10. It was an absolute dream. From the moment we arrived, we felt like family. Walking through the doors feels like you’re entering a secret garden. Words can not describe how magical Aunt Kali’s cottage is. The cottage is the absolute cutest, with the most comfortable beds. In the evenings we couldn’t decide whether to relax in the hot tub or crawl into those cozy beds right away. The outside is indescribably perfect. The outdoor shower is incredible! The tiki bar has everything you could possibly need. The perfect spot for a cold drink! The pool, hot tub and view makes it unnecessary to ever leave the house at all! We had an absolutely perfect visit to Aunt Kali’s. We feel forever lucky to have had to opportunity to stay and look forward to future stays! Thank you to you, Carrie, Dan and Grandma Jean. We could never thank you enough for sharing your piece of heaven on earth!

We chose this location based on the photos of the property, description and reviews. Let me start by saying this was the first time we went on vacation and not ready to return home at the end of our stay. The description of the property and photos are spot on. Carrie is a wonderful host. You truly have the location to yourself as a home away from home. The atmosphere is very peaceful and private. There are no interruptions and Carrie is very accommodating. I highly recommend this rental to anyone visiting Maui. We have selected our dates to return and we are very much looking forward to our return visit. We love this place! Kevin and Ruby.

This property is so beautiful! It was our private oasis and a great way to finally travel after Covid-19. Carrie was more than your average property owner but she was warm, friendly and throughout our time there she was always ensuring we were having a good time. Carrie and her family are very welcoming and grandma even baked us fresh banana bread. They all made us feel so comfortable as if we were apart of the family. The cottage is as described. It's so adorable and the backyard is your private oasis and very much a 5 start accommodations. Waking up on the morning and hearing the birds chirping, deer walking by and all the sounds of nature was exactly what the doctor ordered. This cottage had all the things you needed that you wouldn't even think of. From Beach chairs, beach towels, robes, cable tv, outdoor market lighting, firepit, outdoor kitchen and bar to yoga mats and even washer/dryer. Some say you can't have it all but in this cottage, you sure can. Thank you for a wonderful family experience.

This property is truly paradise! Behind the doors is your own private oasis with the most lush landscaping, pool, jacuzzi, outdoor kitchen, shower, comfy furniture and great view of the ocean and island. Beach is very close. The cottage is stocked so well with everything you need. The beds are very comfortable. You are provided everything you need - beach chairs, towels, coolers, snorkel equipment, floats. The pictures truly represent the oasis. The hosts are wonderful and we really enjoyed getting to know them and now have a new Hawaiian family ! We cannot wait to go back and will always stay here.

The cottage was everything and more then I expected. We felt so privileged staying there. It was honestly the best place we have ever stayed. The cottage is comfortable, clean and decorated with so much thought. The outside area was paradise and we never wanted to leave. But, the best part of the whole trip was meeting beautiful Carrie, her beautiful mom Grandma Jean also , her very handsome brother and her handsome second son. They were so kind to us and treated us like family. Take about Aloha this family is one of kind and I can not thank them enough. I already made a reservation for next year. Thank you Grandma Jean for the wonderful fresh baked banana bread and thank you and Chris for a wonderful Mexican dinner. Can’t wait to come back.. Mahalo

This place is outstanding. I really can’t say enough good things about it. We traveled to Maui to get married and this place was perfect. You have your own little paradise. Its private, owners are super friendly and helpful, not that we really needed anything. They thought of everything! Its super clean, quiet, with ALL the amenities. The owner’s brother even took my daughter out surfing one morning. We will be back without a doubt. Mahalo!

Loved our stay at the cottage, it’s exactly as listed & even better, it has everything you can imagine needing & more in Maui! It’s a great retreat with an amazing courtyard with a bar, BBQ, pool, hot tub, outdoor shower and cute cottage for couples or a family. We enjoyed BBQ and the outdoor space so much we didn’t want to leave. Carrie is a great Host & it has everything and more that you’d ever need for your stay. It’s located so close to Wailea shopping, resorts & beaches 5 -10min and Kihei 10-15min. We loved it & hope to book another trip to stay soon! Thanks for a very fun, memorable trip!

Loved the cottage! Carrie was wonderful and responsive. Wonderful greeting when we arrived with homemade touches (which I will not give away).Cottage was clean, quiet, private, and fabulous! It had everything we could possibly need. The backyard was perfect for us. We hardly stayed in the cottage except to sleep (and the bed was wonderful). We spent most of our time relaxing by the pool, grilling, and using the outdoor kitchen for lunch and drinks all day. We really enjoyed observing all the deer that visited the field next door every night as well. REALLY enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again when we visit Maui! Thanks Carrie!

Auntie Kali's cottage is almost indescribable! I would give it 10 stars if allowed. You may think it looks great from the excellent photos, but it is actually MUCH better in a way that can't be captured in pictures. The place is gorgeous beyond compare with ALL of the amenities one could imagine. Carrie is the ultimate host. The home is beautifully decorated and totally stocked. I asked her for many activity referrals prior to our arrival. She answered promptly and her selections were spot on. She even found us a private chef to prepare dinner on property the night of our kids' anniversary. Lush, serene, stunning are but a few adjectives one can chose but you really need to experience it to understand. Oh, did I mention that the outdoor shower is fabulous , the pool heated , and that the Tiki Bar has a full refrigerator AND a second dishwasher? Obviously, I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, we will be back again and again. Thank you, Carrie, for a fabulous week in paradise.

Words cannot express, not only how wonderful, beautiful and perfect the house is, but also how wonderful the owner is. I sent my son and his new bride to Auntie Kali's Cottage for their honeymoon and Carrie went above and beyond to make sure their stay was perfect!! They texted me throughout their stay telling me how beautiful the house was, how great Carrie and Jim were and how they couldn't have imagined spending their honeymoon anywhere else. Not only would I recommend this place for anyone from a family vacation to a romantic getaway, I can't wait to go there myself to experience all the wonderful things about the home and island. Thank you so much Carrie and Jim for being so fabulous!

So rather than post a lot of what everybody else has posted I wanted to answer some questions that I had that I never saw in the reviews. This property is located in a residential community (Maui Meadows) however when you are on site at the property you do not feel that way at all. You enter through a gate with a code provided and drive through a U-shaped drive on the property. The cottage is on the far end facing a large open space with a partial view of the ocean. You enter through your own private gate which is lockable. Once you enter the gate you actually feel completely separated from the neighbor's on either side as well as the owners home. They have done a great job with large palm trees and all kinds of vegetation blocking out all views from all sides. So if you're reading this and are concerned or were just wondering where the property was that's essentially the setup and it's a good one. Inside the cottage, there are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and believe it or not, the noise level between the two rooms is at a minimum. It was just my wife and I this trip but I would often use the restroom in the other bedroom and while in there I could never hear my wife talking and she couldn't hear me so sound insulation is pretty good. As far as Carrie and Jim, if you want to be secluded and do not want to have a lot of interaction they are very good with that. That includes their dogs (which are cute). Well, my wife and I are huge dog lovers and own dogs our self, however, on this trip, we were taking a vacation from everybody and didn't want to be bothered so as long as you keep the gate closed you will never see the dogs if you don't want to. We also explained to Carrie and Jim that we wanted to have a very quiet private vacation and throughout our stay, they did just that. We ended up interacting with Jim the most, and he was delightful to speak with. The one time we did need something, Carrie arranged a snorkeling tour for us which was, in fact, the very best available anywhere on the island in my opinion. You are about a 2-minute drive from the shops at Wailea so if you need groceries, alcohol, or just want to eat or shop everything was within a few minutes including the beach. Almost everything else has been answered already so I hope this helps anybody reading. In the end, if you're looking for a place with your own private pool, hot tub, Tiki Bar, Fire Pit, BBQ, and wonderful outdoor shower and lots of privacy you will highly enjoy

If you are looking for somewhere to stay, while vacationing in Maui, look no further. Carrie and Jim were the most gracious of hosts. They were attentive to any and all needs we had, while still affording us the privacy we wanted for our wedding/honeymoon. The cottage, contents of the cottage, grounds and pool left us wanting for nothing. I simply cannot think of anything that was lacking, in any way. The privacy of the whole grounds and cottage were sublime. I am so overjoyed that we opted not to stay at one of the large and crowded resorts nearby. The views were stunning. I just have to mention; the outdoor shower? I swear it was like heaven. Never showered inside the cottage. There really aren't enough positive adjectives to properly describe this property. The stay was just heavenly from the first second that we arrived, to the last second that we left. We are already talking about going back and would never dream of staying anywhere but here! Thank you Jim and Carrie for everything! Your bit of heaven was a tremendous slice of what made our wedding/honeymoon, engraved in our memories, so very precious and special. MAHALO!!

Everything was great, as expected. Thanks Carrie & Jim. Our family of 4 hope to return sometime in 2019.

My wife and I loved the pictures, but we booked because of the five-star reviews. We brought our four-year old to Maui for the first time and wanted our own place away from the beach. Though we started most our days at the beach, we couldn't wait to return to the cottage. Being a cottage, the house is small, but super clean, comfortable, and it was stocked with everything. We spent most our time outside because of the amazing pool, yard, palapa, outdoor shower, grill, view, etc. If that wasn't enough, the owners were incredibly available and responsive throughout our stay. WE CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN!!!

You park on a private drive and then walk through the gate from the main house to the guest house and you are taken to your own private oasis complete with a lush tropical setting that offers a view of the ocean, walk in pool and hot tub, Tiki bar, lounge seating for 28 (we counted), outdoor shower and bath, washer and dryer area and then the lovely cottage! We had such a great time. We were so close to everything.

We had an amazing stay at this cottage with our 2.5 year old daughter. The grounds were more expansive and beautiful than we expected. Our daughter loved having her own pool and making s'mores over the fire pit. Carrie and Jim were both lovely hosts. We would recommend this property to all of our friends!

This place is amazing! It is very private and has everything you need. Carrie and Jim are awesome hosts. Without a doubt, this is the best equipped VRBO we have ever stayed in -- nice appliances, cookware, cutlery, plenty of dishes -- in both the house and tiki bar. I could go on and on . . . The best part was just relaxing around the beautiful pool. Wish it was closer so we could get there more often.

When we got there Carrie and Jim met us and gave us the tour. It is a beautiful place and everything that you could want on a Maui vacation. We enjoyed the pool, Jacuzzi and even roasted marshmallows at the fire pit. We were about a 4 minute drive to the beach, but we enjoyed the house more than the beach. We are coming back soon!

Private, Romantic, Warm and Inviting. Carrie and Jim have thought if everything! This cottage does not even compare to a 4 Seasons or Club Med. It by far surpasses any resort or private rental. From the time of booking till the end, they made us feel important and special. Carrie even helped with booking some exciting things to do on the Island. While staying at the cottage it was so warming to see the thought that went into building and preparing a true serene place. Do yourself a favor and don't book to much on the Island, but spend your time at the cottage relaxing and enjoying all there is at the cottage. Thank you Carrie and Jim for your wonderful hospitality and making your dream come true for us all to enjoy! Carrie and Andy

We HIGHLY recommend this property as it is more beautiful in person than in the photos. It's like having your own private paradise! We enjoyed the pool and hot tub each day as well as the outdoor grill. Even when it rained, we were able to be outside at the tiki bar and have fun with friends. The outdoor shower was great too and had plenty of hot water. Carrie and Jim really made us feel at home and provided excellent suggestions on what to visit and where to eat. We can't wait to go back!!

Over the past 10 years, we've been staying in Maui condos, hotels, and this was our 3rd cottage rental in the same neighborhood, and we must say, it was the best experience yet! From the moment you walk through the cottage area's gate, you'll realize you are in a private tropical oasis. From the mature landscaping, to "sand" entry saltwater pool, you know it's going to be good, but it just gets better. The finish work in the cottage is beautiful and Aunt Kallie has made sure there is everything you need, from kitchen ware, bbq tools, bathrobes, even down to a nightlight in the bathrooms so you don't stub your toes if you're like me! :) The central air was wonderful to have (don’t always have this in Maui rentals but you DO need it come those hot afternoons when the winds stop), and ceiling fans in every room, including in the bathrooms which I really appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time relaxing in the lounges at the pool with the umbrella shading us, listening to reggae on the outdoor stereo, and using the floaters in the pool with tropical drinks in hand. The courtyard was so awesome, we only went to the actual beach once during our 12 days. Yes, the ocean was nice but the privacy of the cottage was unmatched... sorry Ulua beach, you used to be our favorite but you've been replaced. I have to say that one of our travel concerns is always the mattress. Will it be comfortable? Often it’s not. BUT here, the master bed was AMAZING! Firm, but with memory foam on top so that you sink down. We both slept like a log. Loved it so much, we are going mattress shopping now that we're home to buy the same one if we can find it! Thank you Carrie and Jim for making sure we had anything we needed. We will highly recommend your cottage to our family and friends, and we will most definitely be back to stay with you on our next trip to Maui!

This property was unbelievable. We stayed here on our honeymoon. The pictures are accurate. Like others have said, it's a private resort. You have your own personal pool, hot tub, grill, fire pit, outdoor/indoor dining, tiki bar, outdoor/indoor showers, and a mini driving range. We couldn't believe that was all ours. At nearby resorts (Four Seasons, Fairmont, etc) you pay so much more for so much less. The unobstructed view out back is beautiful. There's a ton of greenery and the ocean is not far off with views of Molokini. We felt spoiled. Inside the cottage is gorgeous - really tastefully decorated. Looks like it should be featured on houzz or an interior design magazine. Jim and Carrie are super friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable at all times. Their 2 dogs were adorable. We left our gate open intentionally hoping they'd wander in (they do every now and then if you want them to). There was a welcome basket ready for us on arrival with fresh fruits, local coffee grind, and snacks. There were beautiful fresh flowers in the cottage along with complimentary champagne to celebrate our honeymoon. The bed was super comfy. We have no complaints at all! The kitchen was well equipped. They have travel guides and movies available. There's a shed behind the cottage with all sorts of beach equipment (coolers, boogie boards, beach chairs, etc). Checkout is in the morning, but our flight back home was late night. There was no one checking in the day we checked out, so Carrie and Jim let us use the place till late. Thanks so much for your kindness and for an unforgettable honeymoon residence :) Love - Danielle & John

We have been traveling to Maui for over 10 years and this was by far the nicest place we have stayed. The cottage was immaculate and the attention to detail was second to none. The outdoor living space was just as amazing with tiki bar and the pool. All extremely private and quiet with a beautiful view of Molokini and Kahoolawe. I have recommended this place to all our friends and we will be back.

We loved our stay at the cottage and couldn't have asked for anything more in a vacation home! The cottage was beautiful and well equipped for our family and Carrie and Jim were wonderful to work with. The location was perfect for getting to the beach quickly and provided a nice home away from home. We definitely hope to go back and visit again!

What a gorgeous place this is. Exceptionally clean and well cared-for, with beautiful decor. The very private yard has lush landscaping, plus a lovely view of the ocean, Molokini and a neighboring meadow. Oh, and the pool and hot tub and outdoor shower...perfection. This is a great place to stay for a family with one or two kids, or two couples. Carrie and Jim were friendly and attentive hosts, there if we needed them but we also had all the privacy we wanted. We will be sure to come back to Auntie Kali's Cottage!

Our stay at the cottage was beyond our expectations. Carrie and Jim provided everything we could have wanted, especially privacy. The attention to detail in the cottage in incredible - it is beautifully built. The landscaping and the pool are are really lovely - it feels as if you are staying at your own personal resort. Close to everything and yet just far enough away . . . perfect. This is an amazing value!

Our family LOVED staying at this beautiful cottage. We had a great Thanksgiving dinner poolside-watching football at the fully stocked tiki bar. This cottage has everything you might need..boogie boards, cooler, beach chairs. The kids happily played in the pool and we watched the sunset from the hot tub. What a great location-close to restaurants like Monkeypod. We will definitely come back to Auntie Kali's cottage. It's a sweet place to stay! You won't be disappointed!!!! Home away from home!!!!
