Wailuku Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 5)

Summary

Most definitely a special spot for those who seek connection to the places they visit. The Iao Valley Inn Cottage is a private vacation rental that shares 30+ acres of verdant land, gardens, stream and natural swimming holes with the two-room boutique B&B of the same name. The cottage is privately tucked away and stand-alone complete with a full kitchen, lanai, driveway and yard and there are plenty of options for peace and quiet, romantic strolls, recharging and relaxing just outside your door.

The studio-style cottage boasts a king bed and also comes with a detached octagon gazebo with a full bed that can be used as a second bedroom. The bathroom opens up to both the inside of the cottage and the outside so your friends/family in the gazebo can access it and/or the laundry area without disturbing anyone else.

Both the cottage and gazebo are next to Iao Stream, and when the stream is rushing it makes for a soothing background soundtrack. (The cottage also has a daybed on the outdoor lanai facing the stream.)

Your Hosts

The friendly and available owners live in a B&B and attached home on the property. Bob & Tamara are truly exemplary ambassadors of an authentic Maui experience, and are equally happy to allow guests full privacy as they are chatting or providing local insight and connection to Maui. In fact, both Bob & Tamara have deep connections to the community and culture that most long-time residents would be hard-pressed to duplicate – an invaluable resource for those looking for a more meaningful vacation.

Bob & Tamara are genuine, super friendly and incredibly knowledgable about Maui. If authenticity in travel is your thing, you can’t do much better than to connect with them during your stay. Tamara has been Maui County Parks Director and Director of the Maui Historical Society. Bob started Kama’aina Properties, a real estate company, in the 70?s and both have always been strongly involved in the Maui community and enjoy sharing their love for Maui.

The Grounds

Iao Stream cuts itself deeply into the 30+ acre property, and runs close by the cottage. You can gaze from a cliffside view, or the more adventurous can swim under a waterfall while they take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear plunge pool. (Definitely consult with the owners for safe routes to more hidden pools!) During heavy rain in the mountains, peaceful Iao Stream can turn into a dramatic river that is not advisable to enter (though it is equally enjoyable to watch and relax within earshot.)

Among the gardens are a large collection of orchids – many in bloom – as well as countless examples of many other tropical plants and trees. The land also hosts a small-scale coffee farm and a handful of sheep and chickens can be found grazing in their own corners of the property. Guests are welcomed to visit, feed and enjoy the animals – and when available fresh-roasted coffee from the land is provided to guests (and guests rave about it!)

Location

Iao Valley Inn is located just outside of Wailuku Town, where the West Maui Mountains split to open into historic and sacred Iao Valley. The location is just ten minutes from the airport and perfect for folks who like to sightsee and plan on exploring all around Maui (something I suggest no matter where you stay!) It’s also quiet and worlds away in attitude and experience from the touristy hotels and resorts.

Iao Valley State Park – a must see – is literally your neighbor. 15 minutes in the other direction takes you to the Maui Ocean Center and the Maalaea harbor for snorkel boats and whale watches. You’re also five miles from Maui Tropical Plantation and and you’re just 15-20 minutes from the resort areas of Kihei & Wailea. Half an hour will get you to West Maui’s Lahaina Town. You’re also a bit closer to a Road to Hana adventure and your visit to Haleakala than the bulk of Maui visitors.

In your immediate neighborhood, Iao Valley is just a minute or two away by car and has hiking trails (Kepaniwai Park just between here and Iao Valley is a great spot for a picnic.) The North Shore of West Maui starts close to here as well, with scenic vistas and less crowded hikes like the Waihe’e Ridge Trail. If you’re interested in learning more about Maui and Hawaiian history and culture, the Bailey House Museum is also close by and holds a large collection of photographs and Hawaiian artifacts that range from traditional stone tools to Duke Kahanamoku’s surfboard. (Bailey House is also a great place to score some unique gifts that are actually made in Maui.) Tip: Tamara served as the director of the museum, so a nice chat with her before a visit is time well spent!

For windsurfing and kite surfing enthusiasts, Kanaha and Kite Beach are ten minutes away.

An incredible value for your travel dollar when you consider what resort lodging costs – and the unique value added experience and authenticity that comes alongside is invaluable.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is the perfect getaway! Our family of four loved every minute of our stay. It is wonderfully appointed and located. We hiked Haleakala, the Iao Valley Park and did the road to Hana, which were all a nice distance from the cottage. Then at night, we relaxed in this little piece of paradise! Tamara and Bob, the owners, are such kind, genuine, hosts. I can't say enough about them:). If you are looking for peace and quiet, with the lull of the Iao Valley Stream to put you to sleep at night, this is your place.

Hidden Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Hidden in the lush foliage of the Ioa Valley, this gem of a location isn't trying to cater to the bustle of tourists but is instead a gorgeous location for a calming retreat in paradise. Ample amenities and gracious hosts make for a comfortable stay and quiet rejuvenation.

Location has quick and easy access to Maui's main highways.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We spent 6 lovely days in the Cottage, and Tamara was a very friendly host.
Everything is well organized and makes it easy to feel you at home. The loacation is perfect if you want to explore the Island. We loved the coffee from the farm.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
This was a gorgeous, well-appointed cottage in a fairytale setting. Sit out on the picturesque lanai and look to the left to see breathtaking mountains, look to left and the ocean is glistening off in the distance. Look straight ahead and calming stream is flowing. You are surrounded by nature in this private setting. We were awakened each morning as the sounds of millions of doves cooing filled the valley:) The cottage is decorated in the most tasteful Hawaiin decor. The bed is comfy and positioned to look right out at the valley. The kitchen has everything you need. The bathroom is a dream with a huge walk-in shower. There is a charming enclosed bedroom gazebo in the side yard. We have been going to Maui for years. This cottage is a secret gem--heaven on earth:)

Iao Valley is well-described as the spiritual heart of Maui. This wonderful little farm cottage is tucked right into the valley, surrounded by lush gardens and with a great view back down towards Kahului and the ocean. The cottage is beautifully built in a Hawaiian plantation style with wonderful little touches like river stones in the shower hand picked by Tamara from the stream. It's very private and well-stocked; a full kitchen, grill, beach chairs/toys, iPod speaker, etc. The location is a great jumping off point for exploring all sides of the island, very central and just minutes from Wailuku, which has some nice food options and is about as non-touristy as the island gets.

Bob and Tamara are great hosts, full of aloha. They really care for this property and we we lucky to be able to share it. Highly recommended; we can't wait to go back.
