LUXURY COTTAGE W/ INCREDIBLE OCEAN, ISLAND AND SUNSET VIEWS

Lahaina Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Exemplifying luxury Hawaiian vacation living at its best, this brand new cottage bridges traditional Hawaiian and contemporary designs. With the help of the leading designer on Maui, this cottage was just completed for the private use of the owner (we live in Upcountry Maui and this is our 'beach house') and select vacationers. Stunning views of the vast blue Pacific Ocean, the entire Island of Lana'i, the Island of Molokai, incredible sunsets and the rugged West Maui Mountains are unobstructed and to die for. The ocean side of the house opens completely to the most tranquil and stunning views.

The cottage is a free standing structure built at the end of a long private driveway. No one can build in front us and there are gulches on both sides providing absolute privacy and quiet. One of the gulches is protected by a State of Hawaii easement to prevent construction of any kind because of the archeological Hawaiian artifacts found on the property. This cottage is private.

Dine inside or out. The large kitchen island seats four and is made from a immense slab of local mango wood. Sip a glass of wine and chat with the cook or sit outside on the covered lanai and enjoy the breathless views. Teak dining furniture can accommodate six comfortably. The kitchen is fully equipped or cook on the grill outside.

Both bedrooms feature private baths, Tempur-pedic mattresses and french doors opening to the ocean side lanai. Comfort, quiet and relaxation is the theme of the house. The bedroom window shades have blackout, privacy screens so you can sleep as late as you want.

Outside, you can lay in the sun or the shade depending on how you feel at the moment. A Balinese day bed in the shade is a perfect spot to take a nap or to read a book. A private outside shower is available for you to rinse off after a trip to the beach (less than 1 mile) or a hike up the mountain or a brisk walk on the walking trails around Launiupoko.

If you want to stay connected while you lounge around you can hook-up to the high-speed internet with our wi-fi. The home entertainment system includes Bose Lifestyle Home Theatre, a large (56') high-definition TV, TIVO, DVD, Blu-ray and CD player, and a dock for your iPod or iPhone. Listen to your music or the business news inside or out. You have total control your environment.

About The Owner

My wife and I were very fortunate and retired young. Karen was a clinical neuropsychologist and I owned a software development company in Dallas, TX. We sold the company in 2000 when our children were still in grade school. We decided to move to Maui to give the kids an incredible experience growing up. Our youngest just graduated from high school this past May. Both kids are now at the University of Colorado in Boulder.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

The cottage in Launiupoko was built as a retreat specifically for Karen and myself. Before moving to Maui full time, we had a condo on the West Side. When we took the plunge and actually moved here, we decided to move upcountry to Makawao to be near the best schools. Lahaina and Kapalua were the places we vacationed for years and we missed that aspect of island life. Living upcountry we missed seeing the whales breach and missed the beach activities. So, building this cottage was a present to ourselves.

We knew we wouldn't use the cottage a great deal, so we designed it to be rented as well. Accordingly, it has everything we want for a perfect vacation (including a short 1 hour drive to get there!).

Absolutely Fabulous! Perfect Vacation Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Simply amazing cottage perched up on the hills outside of Lahaina. Gorgeous ocean views from a huge outdoor patio perfect for taking in the scenery, reading a book, stargazing. Everything was so thoughtfully appointed from the high end entertainment system to the kitchen which had everything that a person could need for cooking, grilling out. Very private, quiet neighborhood. Good hiking trails steps from the door. Very nearby private paved path for those who like to jog. Cool little beach at the bottom of the hill was perfect for our babies to get used to the ocean. Ten minutes to downtown Lahaina if you are in the mood for a bit of "civilization". Upon our certain return to Maui, we will surely try to rent here again. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. Great communication and always available for questions and recommendations.

Unbeliveable location!!! So quite, yet so close to the action.

  • 5 of 5
We have been to 5 VRBO rentals around the world and this was far and away the best experience. We stayed for a week but would have liked to have stayed forever. The only noise we heard for the whole week was a couple of birds that came by every morning. Coffee out on the Lanai in the morning was very peaceful. The cruise ship arriving in the early AM was the highlight of the morning. The owner was very helpful in all aspects. 1 mile to a very private beach that looked like it could be on a post card. 31/2 miles to down town Lahaina and all the restaurants and boat docks. Couldn't be any more convienent. Every aspect of the VRBO listing was as advertised, no disappointments.

Beautiful Home and Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5
This lovely home was everything we wanted...a comfortable place to come "home" to when the activities of the day were done. We found the home to be a relaxing refuge from the traffic and tourists. What a pleasure to have a cup of coffee in the morning on the lovely patio! The doors that opened created an atmosphere of serenity with fresh air blowing through. We enjoyed walking the trails in the neighborhood and shopping at the farmer's market at the bottom of the road. The beds, linens, and towels were first class. The sound system was also top-notch. Truly a wonderful place to stay. In addition, the owners were very easy to communicate with and even met us at the home when we arrived. We give this vacation rental our highest recommendation and hope to stay here again next year. Thank you.

It's even better than it looks!

We had a wonderful stay at the property in October. The house and property are everything it promises to be but even better! It's a beautiful home, very comfortable and understatedly luxurious. The lanai and the view are incredible, we spent many sunsets and evenings there sipping wine and cooking on the grill. You feel like you are on your own private island but it's close enough to Lahaina to not feel disconnected. Craig is great, responded very quickly to any questions and was very welcoming. We have rented many properties all over the world and this one, by far, was the best one! We'll be back!

Owner's Response: It's always a joy when you meet nice and interesting people. Anna and John came to cook, drink wine and RELAX. I'm delighted we had just the place for them. I look forward to seeing them again soon!

Perfect Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Breathtaking view from everywhere in the house! We really felt so grateful to have the opportunity to rent this cottage. We had such a great time here and enjoyed just soaking in the view and lounging around the house. The folding glass doors open up the whole house to the lanai which provides unobstructed view of the ocean and the island of Lana'i. The house was well designed with understated luxury. All the materials they used to build this place as well as the furnishings and decor are top quality. Craig, the owner, was very warm, welcoming and accommodating. He made sure that the house was well stocked with everything we need. There was even a beautiful, chic, lush and big fresh floral arrangement on the coffee table and fresh fruits on the kitchen island to welcome us!
,
We loved everything about it! the view, the sunset, the location (short drive to the beach and Lahaina), the landscaping, the open floor plan, the super comfy beds with soft linens, the outdoor shower was a major hit, the awesome kitchen with the awesome huge mango wood slab, the wood floors felt good on bare feet, the beautiful rugs (where did you get them, btw :) ?), the lighting, the glass doors, the lanai, the Bali daybed, the entertainment system...everything!!! There's always a nice cool breeze at night so it's nice to lounge outside and stargaze.

Thanks Craig and Karen for sharing your beautiful cottage. There's so much love put into it and your taste are just impeccable! I also love your work...thanks for sharing your beautiful woodturn bowls and displaying them around the house. It was such a pleasure meeting you! Your place is a dream! It made for a great experience, unforgettable vacation and beautiful memories!

A hui ho!
