Things to do...: Take advantage of the excellent snorkeling and scuba diving in front of your own cottage. Feed the fish in the tide pools or search for sea shells. Look for turtles eatingthe seaweed off the rocks as you sit in your lounge chair. There is not a better place to kayak on Maui and they are available to rent nearby. Walk to nearby white sand beach - Makena Beach. Big Beach, which for years has been voted best beach in Hawaii, is a 5 minute drive from the cottage. If you dont feel like cooking enjoy the wonderful restaurants at the Maui Prince Hotel which is a 5 minute scenic walk. Keawalai Historical Church is located just 5 doors down.

Makena Memories: Our home has such wonderful memories for me...My grandparents originally built the little cottage as a place to come to on the weekend to go 'Hukilau' which means fishing. My first memories are of the original design of the house...it was completely open on the front. Where the bedroom is now, had benches all the way around the sides. In the middle where the bathroom is, was where they locked up the bedding and cots. The kitchen was the kitchen and the bathroom was actual built next to the cottage and my grandfather kept his most precious posessions in there...his lawn mower and fishing nets. We had so much fun, everyone together like a big camp out, some in hammocks others on army cots, but all of us watching the fireworks in the sky. What I realized as I got older was that it wasnt fire works but the military bombing Koholawe island.

Through the years I learned how special our place is. I grew up there, learned to swim, got married there and now my son gets to experience it too.

Why Wendi Brandt chose Makena

This property has been in my family for 3 generations and will stay in my family for many more. My grandmother use to say 'Makena means work' and I didnt understand until I was older how much I was willing to work to preserve paradise.

What makes this cottage unique

Waking up to the sounds of the waves on the shore. Having coffee while watching the turtles feed off the rocks. Picking mango's and bananas right from the trees for breakfast. Its not a condo...its your own place to enjoy.

Serene cottage perfectly capturing Maui's spirit

Serene cottage perfectly capturing Maui's spirit
  • 5 of 5
Prior to even arriving, we had wonderful service from Frank and Wendy. They made sure that the reservation went through without a hitch. When we arrived, the cottage was in pristine condition. Although not fancy, it has every amenity we needed. And the property was gorgeous. We were able to scuba right off the back. Every morning the sea turtles were there to greet us. And every evening, we sat on the back lawn and marveled at the sunset. This was the perfect location for our Hawaii get away. We will definitely be back.

The "Why Go Anywhere Else?" House

The "Why Go Anywhere Else?" House
  • 5 of 5
Every place has a downside, usually. However, our party of 4 with small child grew so happy every time we walked down the grassy yard to the house after being away to the beaches, that we eventually wondered why we even bothered to leave in the first place. The snorkeling out the backyard gate was the best we have ever encountered on this side of Maui. The house was extremely comfortable and well-suited to two couples. The kitchen was the most equipped we've seen in a long time. We sat out every night for dinners that were wonderfully grilled on the outdoor grill. We even "toughed" out a hurricane that never really formed but blew hard and pulled down fronds. However, the real hit in our group was the outdoor shower! Go figure. We all just loved the ease of stepping under sun-warmed water (at least for a few seconds) and getting the sand and salt off without bringing it into the house, with our three-year old grandson prancing around like a naked jaybird after getting squirted off. We obviously relish the simple pleasures, but like I said in the beginning, we really found no downside to this lovely house and property.

Makena Beach rental

This is a lovely property, just as advertised. It is clear that the owners take pride in their place. Having stayed in many VRBOs mostly in the US but also in Europe, this cottage was the best stocked of any place. We didn't need to buy extra toilet paper or soap. We were able to snorkel at the protected beach just a 2 minute walk away. There are a number of very beautiful golf courses nearby and shopping at Wailea Mall 10 minutes away. This is a quiet place so perfect for those who love a peaceful & serene spot. Not as good for a young person with an active night life. And too there are gorgeous sunsets.

Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 10 days staying at this cottage! The setting is absolutely beautiful and the cottage's windows take perfect advantage of that, when you have to be inside. Otherwise you will want to be outdoors enjoying all there is do. Snorkeling right off the property was great! The reef there is incredible and we couldn't believe how many sea turtles were swimming along with us. During whale season (which it was while we were there) we could see whales regularly from the yard or the house. The fruit trees in the yard were fabulous and we picked a fresh lime each day for our Coronas! Makena Landing is a quick walk and that is where most of the kayak/snorkeling trips take off in the area. It's also a quick walk to the resort where a whale watching excursion leaves. We were able to walk right up the street to a lovely Hawaiin church to attend their Palm Sunday service, as well. We spent a lot of time at Big Beach which is a very short drive from the cottage and is not only incredibly beautiful but much less crowded than the resort beaches. The cottage has a wonderful library of books on Maui, including up to date restaurant guides which were very helpful. Lots of great restaurants in Wailea and Kihei and we even drove over to Lahaina a couple of nights.

The cottage itself is very clean and the kitchen is well stocked. The towels which were provided were very nice and thick and there were plenty of them including a couple of beach towels. The shed out back had lots of snorkeling gear, beach chairs, a cooler, and even bikes. Beds were extremely comfortable. Of course it helps to sleep well with the sound of the waves right outside your windows! Another of my favorite things about the house was showering in the master bath which has a glass block wall that hits at about shoulder level so that you are able to see the fabulous view while you shower! I could go on, but you get the picture. Not only will I recommend this place to friends, we recommended it to several people that we met while we were in Maui. The owner, Wendi and Frank were extremely easy to work with and very quick to respond to any questions we had. We can't wait to return to Maui and this beach cottage!

True Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in December 2011 for 4 nights. The cottage is a fantastic location with a breath taking view and sunsets. Snorkeling, swimming, kayaking and turtles swimming right outside your door. Very comfortable inside and out. Equipped with everything you need for the beach. Frank and Wendy were delightful to deal with, very accommodating. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Absolute serenity

  • 5 of 5
This was the most incredible place I have stayed in Maui...I will never go to a big resort again. Amazing snorkeling and sea kayaking right outside the back yard gate. Freshest bananas and coconuts, right in your own space. Neighbors were very friendly as well.
My expectations were exceeded, even the beds were comfy. High quality everything, highly recommend to anyone, I will be back, over and over again!!! Nothing about this property let me down, except that i had to leave :(
Great for small families or two couples.
