Why Harry and Linda van't Groenewout chose Maui

This is our family's homestead, where I grew up, before Kihei became popular. My husband, Harry, and I do not live there anymore, we live in Kula, 45 minutes from Kihei, so we won't be vacationing with you!

After my parent's passing, my brothers and sister wanted to sell our homestead. They all live in the Mainland. So, Harry and I bought out my siblings because we wanted to keep this beautiful property in the family. Now we would like to share this with you! The beach, across and in front of Hale Ma Ke Kai is nice and quiet and is part of a 5 mile long beach, all the way around Maalea Bay & Harbor and all the way into Maalea town. You have to be there to really enjoy the beach and the view!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda and Harry,

We would like to extend our thanks for your warm hospitality during our stay in Maui. My family and I had a great time. Your cottage was nicely decorated and very comfortable. The location was great too, since it's close to everything and especially to the beach which is just across the road. Overall, we were highly satisfied with our stay.

Thanks again,

Imelda and family

Perfect! Can't Wait to Go Back!

If you've been looking for the perfect place to stay on Maui, you can stop searching. This is it!

What a wonderful place! The cottage is beautifully updated and immaculate. It's stocked with everything you could need or want. The kitchen is great, the bathroom is fantastic (especially the huge shower), the beds are comfortable, the living room is cozy, the deck with its table and chairs and brand-new grill is perfect. Linda and Harry have thought of everything - they provide beach towels, coolers, umbrellas, sand toys, boogie boards, you name it.

What really makes this place great, though, is Linda and Harry. We have never stayed anywhere where the owners are so invested in making sure their guests are happy. It makes all the difference in the world. From the welcome basket containing fabulous local fruits, candies, coffees, and teas, to the homemade mango bread, to the little gifts for the kids, Harry and Linda went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, happy, and felt welcome.

We went to Maui thinking it would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip, but after staying with Linda and Harry, we're going to make sure we get back again to visit. Mahalo!

Right from our initial contact with Linda and Harry, they were great to deal with and most welcoming. We knew our rental experience would be what we were looking for and we were not disappointed. What you see as advertised and noted in the past reviews is what you get. Nothing has changed !!. The location of the cottage is ideal, was impecibly clean and well stocked. (we often commented during our stay, " Harry & Linda have thought of everything"). Would recommend this place to all. We will be back again !!! Thanks Linda & Harry.

  • 5 of 5

Harry and Linda are so welcoming and friendly! This was our second trip to Maui and the second time staying at this residence (last time we stayed at the big house and it was just beautiful). The two bedroom cottage was more perfect for my husband and I more than enough space. Great amenities, kitchen was awesome to have, nice size shower and comfy beds. Great location close to great eats, beautiful beaches and the airport. Won't hesitate to stay here again the next time we visit the island.

I would recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat. My expectations were exceeded! Clean, cozy, huge deck with view of ocean. 30 second walk to beach.....all as advertised. Even with 5 of us (wife and 3 teenage girls) for 10 days it was big enough to make work just fine. Thanks Harry and Linda. P.S. the gift basket was awesome

Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my family and loved it!! We had additional family staying at the main house which is dirtectly in front only 10 steps away!! It was perfect!! Harry and Linda were excellent hosts and provided everything we could have wanted and more! They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for a pre wedding celebration. Harry even provided answers to some medical questions I had about my two kids! Goodie basket was excellent!! Thank you so very much!! Hope to see you again!! ;)

We knew we had the right place as soon as we spoke to Harry on the phone. He answered our questions and helped us finalize our plans so we could squeeze in a week during his busy season. The cottage is small on the outside, but very roomy inside. For two it was palatial, but it would be very comfortable for 4. Harry and Linda take care of every amenity you can think of. Lots of towels, movies to watch, wifi, all the kitchen gear you could possible need. Linda even put together a nice treat basket with local fruit, nuts, baked goods etc.

Outside we had a nice lanai and hammock. The outdoor shower was great to help us keep the sand out of the house.

We had a wonderful time and went home perfectly relaxed. Staying in the cottage away from all the touristy hotels and crowded beaches made us feel like we lived in Kihei. The nearby beaches have lots of friendly local folks and were much more laid back than some of the other beaches. We saw whales and turtles only a few minutes away from our cottage door!

We'll be back! Hopefully with our extended family next time. Thank you Harry & Linda!!
