The Aloha Cottage is a charming and romantic Balinese-inspired guest house with magnificent teak wood carvings throughout. Perched atop the highest spot on the property with a backdrop of giant Eucalyptus trees, it is designed to offer our guests spacious living with vaulted ceilings, indoor/outdoor living spaces and an open floor plan. Enjoy a hot soak in the spa tub made for two on your private lanai, lay back on a chaise lounge and take an afternoon nap, or simply listen to the birds singing while enjoying the gentle, cool breezes that make Upcountry Maui life so pleasant. Stargaze through the skylight from the comfort of your king size bed. Enjoy solitude and serenity in your romantic island hideaway!
Attention to detail is everywhere you look--no expense was spared in making this a truly special guest accommodation. Our promise is total privacy for our guests and a true luxury cottage experience. The exotic design and unique placement of our cottage creates the most amazing vacation experience with ample distance from the main house.
As unique inside as on the outside, the Aloha Cottage boasts a pyramid-shaped skylight at the apex of the eight-sided, vaulted ceiling. One can actually lay-back on the bed at night and gaze at the stars through this unique, architectural feature. Beautiful imported carvings, that were specifically designed and crafted for it by artisans in Bali, can be seen throughout. A combination of recessed lighting and wall sconces with dimmer controls provide great ambience within the well-planned space.
The spacious octagonal living area is enhanced by its 14 foot tall open-beam ceilings. The floors are acid washed terra-cotta with built-in radiant heat for added comfort. The design of the main room with its 'living in the round' is so unique! One section offers an Asian-style sit-on-the-floor dining space with custom-built table for two, while another is dedicated to a cozy lounge area. There is a large wall-mounted flat screen TV and a stereo in the built-in wall cabinet. And finally, at the enter of this amazing space, there is a king-size custom-crafted platform bed.
The kitchen is well-equipped for your cooking and dining pleasure. It features gorgeous granite counter tops, a full-size refrigerator/freezer and a full-size, four-burner gas stove and oven. A large 3-panel bay window overlooks the bamboo garden. This kitchen is wonderfully completed by a compliment of solid wood cabinets and hand-carved Teak wood drawer fronts.
Aloha Cottage has earned excellent accolades from Conde Nast Traveler, Lonely Planet, LA Times, NY Times, Maui Revealed, National Geographic Travel Guide, Fodors, Frommers, Organic Living, Best Places to Stay, and many more!

The owners of the Aloha Cottage came to Maui from the San Francisco Bay area. Drawn by the clean air and endless natural beauty of the island, it is our pleasure to share this discovery with you.
Cathy or Melody purchased this cottage in 1999
We chose Upcountry Maui because it green, lush and beautiful, unlike the Kihei or Lahaina side of the island that can feel like a 'dry desert'. It has the most amazing air, filled with hints of Eucalyptus and fresh tropical scents. There is a gentle mist some mornings that keeps everything vibrant and alive. One awakes to a soft symphony of tropical birds, the scent of fresh mountain air and the aroma of multitudes of flowers in bloom.
As a guest of Aloha Cottage you experience the most romantic settings, total privacy and a true luxury cottage experience. You truly feel that your cottage belongs to you! No interaction is required with the owners unless you desire it or need it! The greatest compliment that resounds from our guests is that, 'hospitality abounds and yet it is accomplished invisibly and seamlessly'!
just a note to say that Aloha Cottage exceeded our expectations! We were very happy with it, especially the privacy, peacefulness and thought that went into this place.
Thanks for making everything run smoothly
We loved, loved, loved the Aloha Cottage. It so surpassed our expectations, even though I had read every review and studied every picture on the web. Every need had been anticipated and the kind folks at Maui Vacation Properties went above and beyond to see that our vacation was perfect. We have been coming to Maui for over 20 years and always felt Napili Kai was our only heaven on earth. Now we wouldn't think of coming to Maui without starting our vacation at the Aloha Cottage. Thank you so much for sharing this blessing with us.
Everything was amazing! I must admit it was so wonderful I may have shed a tear when going home..;)...we hope we can come back again soon!
The remote location was private and quiet with every amenity needed.
The only suggestion we can think of may be a better set of knives. Although there was a sharpener, the metal is at the stage where it does not sharpen very well. Having a plastic cutting board may also help with this, & is also a hygienic style. However, this seems like such an insignificant thing compared to every detail that makes the cottage so special!
We very much enjoyed the care and gardening of the grounds, and all the special amenities for us. The CD to Hana was great, the movies & music CD's surprisingly were some of our favorites, & a few of our wedding songs!
When we arrived there were little details like salt and pepper, coffee & shampoo/conditioner/lovely bath salts. The books with instructions answered any question we may have had. The cleaning was also wonderful.
We couldn't have dreamed of a better place to celebrate our honeymoon! Thank you so much for everything, & we sincerely look forward to doing business with you in the future!
We stayed at Aloha Cottage for our 10th anniversary and WOW! I cannot say enough about how perfect this place is! We had been to Maui before and stayed at a hotel on the beach. We wanted to try something different this time and It was such a different experience to have the privacy, peace and respite of a cottage that is away from the crowds. We chose this cottage because of the soaking tub and the cool architecture, but once we got there it had everything we needed. Full kitchen, barbecue, and a huge king size bed that was more comfortable than our bed at home. There is also a double shower and the bathroom has a dual vanity. There are lounge chairs on the lanai and also a little breakfast table--so nice to be outdoors with nothing but the sounds of birds in the mornings. We loved Aloha Cottage and definitely won't wait another 10 years to come back!
Nestled in the mountains of Maui this ideal getaway offers luxury as well as seclusion. Within driving distance from beautiful Maui beaches, it is also minutes away from a forest walk or the local village (Makawao). All home comforts away from home and a beautiful view.
This was my first visit to Maui and I couldn't have been more pleased with my choice to stay at Aloha Cottage. The property is secluded, quiet & gorgeous.
The cottage is upscale, clean & beautiful. The kitchen is fully stocked which is very important to me. The outdoor tub on the lanai is heaven - nothing like soaking in a hot tub every evening in paradise. I was lucky enough to have a full moon for company!
The owners were available to answer any questions I had, to offer suggestions only a local would know and yet they were very respectful of my privacy.
The location upcountry is perfectly situated for peace, quiet & fresh air. It was easy to make daytrips to other locations on the island. Also close to the best natural food store on the island, Mana Foods in Paia
