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.

About John Swanson

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 John Swanson chose Kihei

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Exceeded High Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations for this vacation property, and those expectations were exceeded. The Ohana was great and absolutely as advertised. It had everything we were looking for. The property is very well done and was very clean when we arrived. The location was great as well. Although there is not beach directly in front of the property, you are within easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping. There is access to the ocean in front of the property and we did paddle board directly from there (paddle boards came with the property...awesome!) We also saw a lot of turtles on the paddle boards right in front of the property! Along with the paddle boards, the property provides a ton of activity equipment that most properties don't have. We used the beach cruiser bikes multiple times. John is the property manager and he is great as well. He gave us a lot of recommendations for activities, restaurants and watering holes that were spot on. We plan on returning to Maui next year and we will be booking our vacation at this property or one of their other properties on the island.

Beautiful home, great location & great host

  • 5 of 5

The home itself is really cozy, beautifully decorated and the outdoor patio is gorgeous. The house includes every amenity you could imagine, and the property manager even made sure we had some coffee, fruit and chocolates in house before we arrived! Speaking of the property manager, he is incredibly hospitable and very easy to reach. He even sent us a very detailed and personalized list of his favorite restaurants and activities in Maui, so we not only had tons to do but we also had the "insider scoop." The home is within walking distance of tons of restaurants, bars, the beach and water activities and is a short drive from Wailea, where you can find resorts and many upscale restaurants as well. If we go back to Maui, we will definitely rent through the same propery manager.

We almost cried when we left.

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property, close to the beach and beachfront park. Wonderfully stocked kitchen... usually in vacation rentals, my wife and I are always running out to buy a spatula or corkscrew or colander... but not here. We spent most nights in cooking for ourselves and didn't lack for anything. Even though we were on vacation, we tried to eat healthily, and John was a font of great local suggestions... everything from veggie restaurants to organic markets.

The ohana is beautifully decorated and designed. Evenings, we would move out to the lanais for dinner and a hot tub. In fact, we treated the large lanais as a second living room. Even though the property is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, we were just a couple of blocks from the shops and restaurants that line Kihei Rd. It was a great base for our 10 day vacation. Thanks, John!

High end price and less than satisfactory facility

  • 2 of 5

Kitchen equipment less than average; showers lacked grab bars; lighting was suboptimal; no beach access;

As a condo this may have been satisfactory, however, as a high end private home, we found it less than satisfactory for the price both in terms of the amenities and the location (no beach access).

Owner's Response: We encourage everyone to read through all our previous guest reviews, and you will see that everyone else has a completely different opinion of the property. We also want to clarify some items mentioned in this review. To start, there is plenty of lighting inside and out, and most are on dimmers so my guests can set the mood to their personal preference. The appliances aren't Thermador or Wolf, but they are exactly as seen in the photos and were purchased brand new in 2013. We don't advertise the property as handicap accessible, and the pictures don't show grab bars in the shower. All seasoned and unseasoned travelers looking for special accommodations, should look at the pictures and property description. Like they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words....." The location is great and there are several great beaches nearby. The beach access that runs alongside the property is ideal for catching a beautiful Maui Sunset, launching the 2 stand up paddle boards, or the 2 person ocean kayak that we include with the property. We also provide 2 beach cruisers and a private outdoor hot tub giving our guests added value and an opportunity to experience more on their vacation than they would renting elsewhere.

Everything Was Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. It has everything you could want! Privacy, full kitchen stocked with all the supplies you need, beach gear and a beautiful patio. We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was perfect.

John is super nice, gave us a bunch of hints for things to do and places to go, and if we needed him he was right there. So awesome. We would definitely stay here again!

Amazing And Relaxing Vacation House!!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and three friends recently stayed at this vacation house and had an amazing trip! The house was luxurious and private and had more than enough room for the four of us. A few hundred steps to the beach and just a quick walk to great nightlife and restaurants. John was extremely accommodating and gave great local suggestions! The house is meant for relaxation in paradise, especially with the outdoor shower and hot tub that make the stay extra enjoyable! Would def return!!!

Car: recommended

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.
