PRIVATE LUXURY OHANA- VACATION LIKE A CELEBRITY (SEE PHOTOS)

Kihei Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 2 Bed 2 Bath, 4 Sleeps With Spa, Outdoor Shower, And 2 Huge Lanai

One look at this Ohana and you will feel like you are in your own private paradise. When you walk up to this property you will be in awe of the mermaid/dolphin fountain. The theme is 'old hawaiiana' with touches of bamboo throughout. The pictures show its beauty, but it is much better in person. There are two very large lanais off the house that act as outdoor living areas. One lanai offers a recessed spa in the beautiful Trex decking. This lanai is very private and romantic at night with the outdoor lights dimmed down low. The second lanai is a outdoor extension off the living and kitchen area. Sit on this lanai on the beautiful teak dining set or the very high end outdoor furniture. This lanai is completely covered by a vaulted roof with 2 outdoor ceiling fans and dimmable lights allowing you to set the mood and level of comfort. This lanai also has a new stainless steel propane gas BBQ for your outdoor cooking needs. Take a step around the corner and spoil yourself with a hot outdoor shower in this fully enclosed outdoor bamboo shower surrounded by tropical landscape.

We have been coming to Maui for the last 25 years and always have loved it so much. On our 25th wedding anniversary we bought our first condo in Kihei. Our family and friends enjoyed it so much that we decided to purchase more properties to use as vacation rentals. Our son and daughter-in- law live on island and personally see to each of our properties. It has become a family affair.

John Swanson purchased this cottage in 2012

Why is this property so great? Location, location, location! Kihei has always been and still is the families favorite vacation destination. Halama Street appealed to us because of its location. We love being able to walk around and shop, eat, and enjoy the best night life around. Halama street is where the Celebrities vacation.

Halama street is lined with multimillion dollar homes and is oceanfront in Kihei. You can walk to anything and everything and vacation where you are away from the resort/ condo experience. This property offers peace and quite, luxury accommodations, and the best location Kihei has to offer.

FANTASTIC VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We planned a trip to Maui with several other couples for a wedding and found this lovely home on VRBO. My husband and myself stayed here with another couple and we were very happy with our choice. The house is located near the heart of "downtown" Kihei and just a short drive from Wailea. It is comfortable, clean, decorated beautifully, has a wonderful outdoor lanai, and we loved staying there. John was very attentive to a couple of very minor issues we had, and we found him to be a wonderful host. The only "downside" (if you want to call it that) is that while the property is just one lot in from the beach, it is not a beach that you can hang out on, as it is very rocky. If you want a sandy beach, you need to walk a short distance down the road, or better yet- drive to Wailea and "Big Beach." But, don't let that stop you from staying at this lovely home, ENJOY!!!

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY IN MAUI

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for seven nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The rental is very clean, comfortable, well-stocked, and John has all kinds of beach and recreational equipment one can use. As a host, John does a good job showing you around the house and how to use the hot tub, air conditioners, lights, fans, answer questions, etc. He is a short phone call away and always available to answer questions. The rental is very private and you don't feel you are on a property with the owners. We enjoyed the lanais, the grill, and relaxing at the rental when we weren't exploring Maui. John also gave us a lot of information about local sites and eateries to explore. The rental looks just like the pictures on the VRBO website!

PERFECT MAUI RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This property is a real gem, just like the photos show. The owner's thoughtful attention to detail guaranteed our stay to be relaxing and enjoyable; we felt so well cared for. The ohana is beautifully decorated, updated, and clean with every living and kitchen amenity you could need. John met us upon our arrival to show us around and he gave us his personal tips on the best beaches and restaurants. We spent our days exploring the many beautiful beaches, the Lahaina area, and the Haleakala Volcano, and it was so relaxing to return each afternoon to our private retreat away from the crowds. Groceries, shops, restaurants, and bars are just a short walk from the property, and each evening we strolled into town to enjoy happy hour and grab a few things for dinner, returning to the ohana just in time to watch the sunset from the beach. We lingered on the lanai in the morning for coffee and at the end of the day for long dinners while listening to the ocean or music from the great sound system. The hot tub was the grand finale, so peaceful and perfect for the four of us. We loved our stay!

FEBRUARY FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The property was beautifully appointed and well kept. Our family of 4 with 2 teenagers were very comfortable here. The lanhi with the BBQ and hot tub was our favourite hangout. John was fantastic both before our trip answering questions and during our vacation. He went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying our stay. He gave us personalized paddle board instruction and snorkelling location advice. Kayaking straight out from the property brought us within 20m of 2 humpback whales. If we return to Maui this would be our first choice location to stay.

GREAT STAY AT A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed for 2 weeks with another couple. Everything was great. Pictures are exactly as it is. Would definitely recommend it. Fantastic privacy. Loved star gazing from the hot tub, used it almost every day. Lots of room for 2 couples. We stocked up at Costco on the way in and we were good to go. Outdoor lanai was fantastic and we spent most of our time there when we weren't out exploring. Loved the outdoor shower, used it every day. Has all of the amenities you could ever need except for a pool but the ocean is right around the corner after all. Only negative comment I would have is that you really cannot access the beach from the path beside the house. Either the tide is up or the waves were crashing on the rocks. If you want to use the paddle boards or kayak I would suggest renting a vehicle big enough to put them in. Best place for paddle boarding is at Cove Park.

Thanks to John for making us feel right at home. Hope to be able to come back next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I would like to clarify the beach access that was inaccessible during your stay. During your stay there was a south west swell that we were experiencing that caused the waves making it difficult to access the beach as you mentioned. These conditions are not normal on the south west side of the island. This beach access is not ideal for lying out, but normally great for launching the paddle boards and kayak. There are several public beach access points along Halama St to the north that are ideal for lying out that are just a short walk away. Kalama Park is a popular stand up paddle boarding spot because they offer rentals and lessons right there at the park and there is ample public parking for paddle boarders and long board surfers. Kalama Park is also a short walk to the end of the street or a short paddle away if you were to launch from the beach access adjacent to the Ohana. Many locals and residents of Halama St. enjoy paddle boarding from this beach access to avoid the tourist crowds at Kalama Park. Please also note that you can access the beach during low tide as evidenced by my photo of the beach access. I'm also always happy to assist my guest in launching the paddle boards and kayak when requested.

Halama Street is a highly sought after street to stay at because of the location and the peace and quiet. You have direct access to the beach to launch a kayak, paddle board or go fishing. Walk to Kalama Park at the end of the street and play tennis, volleyball, basketball, roller skate at the outdoor roller rink, skate boarding park, play baseball, or take a walk and/or ride a bike through the parks many paths. You can also walk to multiple restaurants, bars, shops, and the grocery store. A car is only recommended if you want to see the island, but not necessary because just about everything is within walking distance. We offer the use of his and hers beach cruisers to get around town, and we also include the use of a 2 person kayak, and 2 stand up paddle boards. Great location on a street lined with multimillion dollar homes. You wont be disappointed here.
