Quiet , comfortable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This spotless cottage was the perfect place to spend our Christmas vacation. It is in a quiet neighborhood away from the holiday crowds, but close to amazing beaches. We spent our days snorkeling, picnicking and swimming and then came back to the cottage for an afternoon swim in the beautiful pool which we had all to ourselves . We enjoyed a bbq almost every evening and watched the sun set while sitting on the Lana’i surrounded by lush tropical greenery. Mahalo for your hospitality Elaine and Alfie .

Very clean and cozy cottage with great pool

  • 4 of 5

Really nice and clean cottage. Bedrooms are a little small, but who notices when you're sleeping. Nicely equipped with a very large screen TV. Everything you need in the kitchen. But the best part is the HEATED swimming pool. We come to Hawaii every year, but hadn't been to Maui in a few years. We were shocked at how the prices had increased, but this place is still affordable. Nice location in a residential neighborhood, making it convenient to get you wherever you want to go without getting stuck in the traffic jam in Kihei.

Five Star, and we will be returning

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this beautiful Bungalow. The kitchen is very well stocked and there is a grill conveniently located. The unit was very clean and both beds were very comfortable. The furnishings are beautiful, tasteful and very comfortable. It was nice to have wifi and a land line phone available, as well as a large parking spot. Having a private balcony is a huge plus. We would wake up every morning to the sound of the birds. The pool and the area around it are huge. We will be returning.

wonderful paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time I have stayed in this cottage. I do not think it will be my last. Alfie and Elaine have created a little piece of paradise in this setting. I love the birds singing in the mornings and the tropical setting. The pool is wonderful and the beach is just a short drive down the street. Very good shopping all around and great places to eat if you don't want to cook your own meals. Have fun and enjoy Hale Manu Mele!
