Kihei Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5) + Beach Bath

Welcome to Plantation Bungalows Maui! Looking for a vacation spot that offers peace and tranquility, yet is just a few minutes from restaurants and activities? This 2-BR, 1-BA cottage was built in the style of the 1926 plantation home that also occupies this property (See VRBO 45784). The cottage was built in 1992 to match the house, with 10-foot ceilings and a large covered lanai.

The cottage sits on a large (1/2-acre) corner lot. The mature hedges, shade trees, and palms surrounding the property provide amazing privacy even though you’re just a few minutes away from the beach and shops.

A hot tub sits ten feet from the spacious covered private lanai in a quiet courtyard with gas BBQ, outdoor dining table, and chaise lounges. Relax surrounded by lush mature palms, orchids, and other tropical plants with a large Royal Poinciana tree towering overhead.

The Plantation Bungalows property is a perfect place for family gatherings. The property includes a 3-bedroom main house that can accommodate 6 to 7 people comfortably and a studio that can accommodate 2 to 4 people. See VRBO listing #45784 for more info on the house/studio. Rent the cottage, house, or studio, or rent all three!

Beaches

Kihei has some of the best beaches in the world. The house is just 300 feet from the beach so you can grab a mask, snorkel, and fins (provided as a complimentary service) and head down first thing in the morning to swim with the marine life. You’ll probably see large sea turtles while you snorkel. In the winter months, you can view whales from the shoreline as close as 100 yards offshore. Or grab a beach chair and a cold drink and take a very short walk to a private and sandy beach (suitable for small children). Kihei faces west so the sunsets here are amazing. If you’re looking for more excitement, take advantage of the multitude of beaches nearby for body surfing, surfing (you can take lessons at “The Cove” nearby), snorkeling, paddle boarding, or virtually any ocean activity you can think of!

The Town of Kihei

Kihei is a great tropical beach town and everything you need is within walking or cycling distance (cruiser-type bikes are available as a complimentary service). In fact, you may decide to just park the car. Kihei and nearby Wailea are also known for their fabulous golf courses. The Elleaire golf course is nearby as well as five more courses a few miles away. Kalama Park, just one block away, has tennis courts, an in-line skating rink, a skate park, award-winning restaurants and grocery stores.

Amenities

Cable TV; DVD player; wireless Internet (Wi-Fi); home entertainment system for iPod/iPhone/iTouch devices; A/C; fully stocked kitchen; dishwasher; microwave; washer and dryer; hot tub; BBQ; premium mattresses; extra Beach bathroom (shared); off-street parking

Great place, great owner!

  • 5 of 5
I could say this property was just as described, a lovely home with a private lanai and tons of accessories for enjoying the stay, and that would all be perfectly correct. But one thing that can make or break a vacation rental is the attitude of the owner, and their ability to exceed your expectations. We arrived at this 3 unit place with a reservation at the smaller home, only to find that a mistake had been made and that particular unit was already being occupied. The owner of the place showed real integrity and compassion on us and upgraded us to the very large home for the duration of our stay!! We felt like we were in the lap of luxury without having to pay a cent more. She even came by a day or so later to check on us and make sure everything was ok. We would absolutely recommend this vacation rental to anyone and everyone!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented the cottage for three nights recently, and have a great stay. The cottage is clean, bright, and comfortable. We enjoyed breakfast on the shaded lānai, and played music from our iPod on the small radio (with an iPod dock) in the living room. There are plenty of beaches nearby, and the cottage is pretty close to HWY 31 to get in and out of the area.

For the price, you will be hard-pressed to find a better place to stay in Kihei. Add to that, Kristin was a pleasure to work with. She responds quickly and provides all the info needed for a great stay. I highly recommend this cottage.

THE PERFECT COTTAGE RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in the cottage at Kristin’s retreat in June of 2014. What we found was a getaway that was absolutely perfect. We spent the days exploring Maui and the nights setting on our private lanai enjoying the cool breezes. We felt we were in paradise. We also had the use of the hot tub and an extra area that had room for more than 12 people if we needed it.
This cottage and the house and studio that are located on the same property would be ideal for a family reunion. I would recommend this oasis to any family of any size as a great getaway vacation.

Four enthusiastic thumbs up!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Plantation Bungalow Cottage was better than imagined. Four adults were very comfortable in the cottage. The shaded lanai and courtyard were a welcome retreat from the midday sun, with beaches and warm ocean breezes just a 5 minute walk away. It is apparent that a lot of thought and care went into making us feel comfortable. Kristin was very responsive to our questions and took care of our needs without hesitation. The location was superb for enjoying the Maui amenities and within walking distance of the parks, shops and restaurants of Kihei's best commercial area; yet the cottage felt like our own personal, private oasis. The furnishings were tasteful and comfortable. The kayak was a real bonus. We could wheel it down to the water, paddle out and gaze back at the beautiful shoreline and Haleakela in the background. Pure bliss! Would we stay here again? Definitely!

Outstanding Kihei Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our time spent here in Kihei.

This property is in a nice quiet neighborhood, a quick walk to a few beaches and places, a quick drive to the rest of the region.

The cottage provides plenty of room and has all the amenities you need and Kristin has this place stocked full of all kinds of beach toys.

We will stay here the next time we visit Kihei.
