Oceanfront Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1+ Bath, (Sleeps 4) Permit STKM 2012/0002
Located on Maui's southwest shore in the heart of beautiful Makena Bay, this single story oceanfront cottage is an island paradise. Built over 40 years ago and remodeled with vintage Hawaiian decor, guests are provided with all the modern conveniences for an incredible vacation.
The large sliding glass doors in the family room open to a deck with a panoramic view of the neighboring islands of Molokini, Kaho'olawa and Lanai. The ocean's high water mark is a mere fifteen feet away! From the spa and the lanai one can enjoy the famous Maui sunsets while watching the large green sea turtles frolicking in the surf. During the winder months, the humpback whales can be seen as they migrate along the coast.
For five years Maui has been named the 'World's Best Island' by the readers of Travel & Leisure Magazine. Conde Nast Travel Magazine has rated Maui the 'Best Island in the World' for twelve consecutive years. Some of the islands best diving and snorkeling are directly in front of you while close by one can enjoy world famous restaurants, golf, tennis, shopping and white sand beaches. The sound of the waves lapping on the rocks plus the star studded nights make this quaint oceanfront cottage the perfect tropical paradise!

Why Camille and Eric Peterson chose Makena
Old Authentic Hawaii at it's Best! The house sits 10 feet from the high water mark! Nothing is more peaceful than sitting on the lanai and watching the surf and sunsets each day. Most travelers pay considerable amounts to take boat rides and snorkel in front of the property. You will have it all immediately in front of the house!
What makes this House unique
The house has one indoor shower and two outdoor showers tied into the hot water heater. One connected to an overhead pull chain and one handheld shower to wash off the sand after a day at the beach before entering the house. Absolutely amazing views!!

Sports & Adventure Activities
Makena Cottage offers privacy to relax and unwind but is only minutes away from shopping, dining and other activities. The view from the lanai is spectacular. You can't go wrong booking Makena Cottage. We are already discussing a second trip.
Most tranquil place on earth!
No need to plan a busy week of activities. This is the place to come and unwind. Renew and refresh. A tropical oasis like not other.
Loved the porch and view - awesome! Plus owners lovely and take great care of you!!!
What a delightful cottage and location! We could not have been happier!
The owners, Eric and Camille, could not have been more pleasant! They gave us lots on information to help us decide to rent their precious cottage. Beds were comfortable, kitchen well equipped and organized and we never wanted to leave the living/ dining area and lanai! The breezes, sounds of the ocean, beautiful views were more than we could have hoped for. Thank you for a beautiful and unforgettable experience!
This was our first time renting Makena Cottage and we cannot wait to return. Finding words for this review is difficult because we had such an amazing week. My wife and I have been fortunate enough to have traveled to many places across the globe in Europe, Asia, US and South America. My favorite place hands down has been Croatia, until now.The Makena Cottage truly changed my perspective. This is a very, very special place. It's simplicity and Aloha spirit grabs you and holds you there. You can feel the history of the Island and Makena Landing, but the beauty of this piece of the world is breath taking. My wife and I are both grateful to the Petersons for opening their island cottage to all of us holiday renters. We were also fortunate enough to meet the neighbors who are 4th generation Hawaiians and whose family originally owned the properties. hearing about the history of the area was wonderful. We also got to meet Camille & Eric and they are welcoming and warm people. If you are thinking of renting this property, do not wait, you will fall in love immediately and you will not want to leave.
Thank you Camille & Eric
Ditto to all comments below!
We are frequent visitors to the cottage. All our friends on Maui love to come over and sit on the lanai. It is such an impressive spot, sometimes we can't get our friends off the lanai to go home :)
You are cheating yourself if you decide on a hotel over this private, romantic, absolutely fantastic get-away!
You will never regret it. Eric and Camille are wonderful people.
If you don't like your experience, I will pay your bill! Lol!
