Overview

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.

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

Maui Cottage

  • of 5

This is our Second stay here at Plantation Bungalow Cottage. location is perfect for homebase while visiting Maui. Cottage is nicely decorated and very comfortable. Kitchen is well appointed with everything needed to prepare meals from all the fresh island ingredients available locally! Love dinning on the lanai with the tropical breezes. Short walk down the street to watch the beautiful Maui sunsets with whales breaching in the distance! Who cold ask for more.

Our stay in Kihei

  • of 5

The house is located in the more laid back part of Kihei, not to posh for us. The cottage is not to big but still enough for the four of us. There's a cortyard that you share wit the other guests, so you get to be a bit social. The only negativ thing is that one of the beds are a bit to small for two people and the kitchen knives are horribly unsharp.

Thanks for a lovely stay in kihei!

A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 9 year old daughter and I just spent a week in this fantastic cottage! I can honestly say it was better than any resort - quiet, private, plenty of room to stretch out and relax, and the owners have really thought of every last detail. It was spotless upon arrival, and very well stocked: lots of towels, everything needed to prepare meals in the kitchen, beach and snorkel gear, even great bicycles. The patio and barbecue were perfect for enjoying the grilled, fresh tuna caught on a fishing trip. The hot tub was excellent for sore muscles after hiking trips. A quick walk down the street to the beach was just perfect to catch the sunset every night (watch for the green flash!), and the several restaurants within walking distance were delicious. We plan to stay at this cottage every time we visit!!

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.
