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!
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.
