Review Submitted June 19, 2012 Date of Stay June 11, 2012

The owners are wonderful and they thought of everything. There's a flat screen with satellite TV, high speed WiFi (although the connection is spotty), granite counter tops, laundry facilities, towels, local maps, a well stocked kitchen, nice BBQ, a safe, and lots of beach gear including boogie boards, snorkels, fins, masks, lawn chairs, beach mats, water socks etc. etc. The cottage is quiet and private, and they also saved us a lot of money with recommendations for things such as a local car rental company and discount cards for the local supermarkets. If we make it back to Maui we will definitely stay there again.

Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this gorgeous, romantic, private cottage for four nights and it was everything we needed it to be. We scoured the Internet looking for the perfect spot and found many great places but found the ultimate gem right here in Kihei.

From the moment Janine opened her mouth and started speaking with us we felt a calm, and a peace. She is very sweet and had EVERYTHING covered.

When we arrived the place was spotless and she had the most tranquil music playing on the Internet radio speaker. She gave us a quick, yet thorough tour of the cottage, let us know she's just steps away if we need anything, then left us to our romantic getaway.

Everything we needed was right here in the cottage. All beach equipment was in perfect condition- boogie boards, snorkeling gear, coolers, beach chairs etc. Oh, and the outside shower is EVERY PART OF LIFE YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR! You don't need to buy any kitchen utensils or cleaning products. She even had seasonings for meat, olive oil, plastic wrap, condiments- the items that could eat up a grocery budget. She even had a Safeway discount card for us to use at the grocery store. I mean, seriously- she's thought of EVERYTHING!

We are BEYOND satisfied with our stay here and will be staying here again when we return to Maui. For those who are reading this review and wondering if you should stay here, keep this in mind- there's a reason why this place stays booked up. For the price, the location and the amenities, it seriously makes no sense to look anywhere else. Thank you Janine for allowing us to stay at your lovely romantic cottage. It was exactly what we needed and we can't wait to come back.

Excellent - comfortable / relaxing / tranquil !

  • 5 of 5

Hard for me to add anything more that what prior guests have not commended this property on ! It was everything they have stated : a true piece of Eden in Kīhei ! I have stayed at many AirBnB locales both domestically and internationally of which they all have their unique charm. This casita though had all of the modern home conveniences one would desire as well as a great location very close to Kamala Beach Park, restaurants and water activities. Janine takes pride in the casita’s upkeep and enhancements. She was very accessible and responsive to questions and a gracious host.The casita leaves you in need of Nothing but groceries to prepare in the kitchen or on the private garden patio BBQ. I hope to return again in 2019 !☀️🏖�🌴�

Paradise Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Janine continues to make improvements to the cottage so that each stay surpasses the last. It may be difficult to find an opening in the calendar, which just confirms what a gem this place is. We'll continue to visit as often as we can!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We have had the privileged of staying at Janine and Ross's cottage more than once. Each time we have returned, Janine has added to the cottage. Her attention to detail can be seen with all the small things included in the cottage. The kitchen is well stocked, truly everything you need is there. Location is great, close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. We appreciate not staying in a large condo complex where you have to wait to use a BBQ. I would highly recommend anyone to stay.
