Book your Summer or Fall stay at the exclusive Honu'ea Cottage on Maui's beautiful south shore and save! Special rates are available only for stays during June 1st, 2017 and November 18th, 2017. Only available on stays of 7 nights or greater, and on new reservations only.

On Maui's sunny south shore, is the romantic Honu’ea cottage, where quiet peaceful living is a way of life. Honu'ea (Hawksbill Turtle) is named after the endangered turtles that come and nest on the sandy shores in front of the property. Honu’ea is perfect for honeymooners or couples just wanting a unique tranquil getaway. The cottage is located on an acre of landscaped grounds with an unobstructed beachfront view of the Pacific Ocean. Just steps from the front door you can take long walks on miles of uncrowded sandy beach.

Honu’ea is a one bedroom, one bath Hawaiian style cottage. This new cottage has a great open floor plan that allows for ocean views from almost every room. The master bedroom includes a king size bed, ample walk in closet for clothes and luggage, and a great view of the landscaped yard and ocean. The living space has an inviting sitting area with a relaxing sofa and chair and flat screen tv/dvd. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for all your cooking needs. The cottage also has an amazing beachfront lanai with outdoor seating and BBQ. For the really hot Maui summer days the cottage has central air conditioning.

The cottage is centrally located so you’re only a short walk away from local restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. The neighborhood is walkable and local bus service is available.

This is truly a home away from home. The cottage had everything we needed and things to do were very close. Thus is a amazing location. Whale watching, turtles on the beach, snorkeling. .. we had a wonderful time.

Beachfront property close to town

  • 4 of 5

Loved this property and we would stay here again. Liked: walking distance to town, a beautiful beach is right out your front door, sea turtles frequent the beach, laundry/dryer and most of the amenities you need for a weeks stay. Perfect size for a couple. Good central location and everything (besides Hana) is within an hours drive or much less. Didn't like: owners request we strip our sheets, start laundry and take out the garbage before we leave on the last day. I found this a little odd but we did as we had time to do so. Suggestion for owner: more spices/basics for cooking and a shade in the bathroom, the curtain wasn't cutting it. We thoroughly enjoyed our quiet, relaxing stay thank you! Will recommend to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Aloha Amanda, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Honu'ea Cottage. It is a great spot for couples to enjoy the beauty of Maui. Thank you for your recommendation of a better window covering in the bathroom. Since the cottage is elevated it was more of a sun shade than for privacy. We will definitely look into replacing the existing covering. I'm sorry you felt obligated to start the wash and take out the garbage. We ask this upon check out if time permits, but in no way is it required. It helps with the short turn over between guests. If your future travels bring you back to Maui I hope you would consider staying at the cottage again. Amber

I didn't want to leave

I LOVED this beautiful cottage with its magnificent views of the sunset. It has a nice stretch of beach to walk along and watch the turtles in the surf. If I could live there forever, I would.

Best place on Maui

  • 5 of 5

From our touring of the island we felt it was the best place to be. Loved the great beach just off the grounds and beautiful sunsets from the lanai!

This lovely cottage exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent eight days in the cottage, and we found the VRBO description to be completely accurate. The cottage was clean, the bed comfy, and the ocean view spectacular. We enjoyed the quiet residential setting (with private parking), away from massive condominium complexes and resorts, with restaurants and shops just a short walk away.

Be sure to look in the nooks and crannies of the cottage because guests will find beach chairs, guide books, an ice chest, beach towels, and nearly anything one might need. The wifi worked perfectly.

When we weren't out exploring the island, we spent a lot of time on the lanai, reading or watching the ocean. Several times, we saw humpback whales blowing and breaching. In addition, sunsets at the cottage are AMAZING! Guests should explore the beach an hour or so before the sun goes down. We saw a green sea turtle lying on the beach one evening, and --once we knew what to look for-- many sea turtles swimming near the shore as night approached.

Kihei's central location makes it the perfect home base for exploring the rest of the island, and staying at the Honu'ea Cottage makes Maui all the more magical. We highly recommend this property.

We took a week to just get away. The first night - sat out on the patio and watched the sun set though the palm trees. We did lots of touristy things but mostly just read books, sat in the dappled sun and thought "does it get any better than this?"

This rental is the upper floor of a studio, adjacent to the owner's house. That kind of threw me for a minute - so close. But not a problem. Totally private and quiet. Nice street to walk, a couple of blocks from main road.

We loved every minute of it.
