Space 950 sq. ft.

Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

This 1960's Hawaiian House/Cottage 2 bedroom/2 BA (Slps 4-6) Beachfront Property

Private home, approximately 75 yards across spacious lawn with palm trees to a low dune and sandy beach.

The house is adjacent to a 4-bedroom house also available for rent (see HomeAway Listing No. 281823 or VRBO Listing No. 73607).

Quiet residential area, with a hand-cut lava-rock wall ensuring privacy, but only a short walk to shopping and restaurants.

The home is built on one level and made of redwood, with beamed ceilings and large windows. A large lanai faces toward the beach.

The yard contains lemon and banana trees and other tropical plants. The large lawn area between the house and the beach (shared with the adjacent house) is State land. The property is, however, maintained meticulously maintained by property owner. The beautiful property has over 40+ of palm trees and a huge Banyan Tree that is over a hundred +years old. Kids love to climb this one also is great for photos.

Just a short walk across the lawn area and you are on a peaceful beach, on a shallow lagoon with a fringing reef, where locals fish and gather seaweed in the tidepools. Beyond the lagoon is the open water, facing west to beautiful sunsets. Whales can sometimes be seen and heard beyond the reef during the whale season.



We recommend you rent from a licensed and permitted property. You do stand the chance of loosing your reservation and fees paid, if property is not properly permitted.

To the northwest the West Maui mountains dominate. The area is also used for surfing, windsurfing, kayaking or paddle-boarding. Also great small waves (depending on the weather) for bodysurfing.

What makes this house unique

We find it is very difficult to find a legally permitted beachfront home in Kihei Town.

The home is located in a nice, quiet, residential neighborhood. You can walk for approximately 6 miles, on a sandy beach. This makes it so nice to runners and children to have so much room to roam around on. Our home has by a handmade Lava Rock Wall, to add to your privacy. Property has over 40 palm trees adorn the property, making the property very shaded for sitting on beach chairs reading a book or watching the family play.

We have listened carefully to our guests over the years, and taken their suggestions seriously. We are happy to hear your suggestions to make our home more appealing to our treasured guests. We really do care about your vacation and your suggestions to improve our property. Thank you for considering our home for your vacation.

Note: We do not allow weddings and/or wedding receptions on our property.

Peaceful, amazing ocean views

  • 4 of 5

Traditional old style Hawaii cottage in a prime location on Maui. Stunning ocean views and direct access to beach (good for morning and evening walks). Flock of wild/feral chickens are charming, however the rooster crows very early in the morning! Outdoor dining on the lanai is so relaxing. Large lawn with Banyan tree is wonderful for kids and teens. Bathrooms and kitchen are small, but serviceable. Owner is highly responsive and helpful. We enjoyed our stay.

Better than the photos portrayed. Lovely, quiet, tranquil.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained property, very clean accommodations. Very quiet beachfront neighborhood. Beach is not the sugar sand type but we enjoyed it. Huge sea turtles popped up on beach regularly to say hello and we could see whales often from our porch. Lovely location for a restful place to reset. Thank you Brian and Mitzi.

Home is the perfect location and on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Brian, thank you for sharing your AMAZING home! We just got back from Maui and already miss it so much! We had an incredible time and it was hands down one of our best vacations! The pictures online do not do the house justice….having the beach right there was incredible. We enjoyed coffee and breakfast on the lanai every morning and it was just amazing. The house was comfortable for the 4 of us, but could definitely sleep 6. It was warm and welcoming, and from the minute we got there, we felt at home. The property surrounding the home is relaxing and very well-maintained. We can't wait to visit again, hopefully later this year!

Brian, thank you so much for the wonderful house. It was as close to "home" as we could have hoped for. It's close to anything we needed and the beach was nice and peaceful. We will miss this little slice of paradise. Maholo!

Perfect Maui Property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent five nights here for our honeymoon, everything from beginning to end was great. Brian responded quickly and with all the answers to our questions before making our way to the island. When we got to the home we were happily surprised by how perfect it was for us 2 (could easily sleep more). The house was clean and safe and had everything we needed from kitchen supplies, to the bathrooms, AC in the bedrooms, to beach equipment, and outside seating. The home is very conveniently located, around the corner to grocery stores, shops, restaurants, and easy to get around the island from Kihei. We spent most of our time in the back yard relaxing on the lanai or down by the beach, which felt like our own private beach, very quiet and not surrounded by resorts. Be sure to take in the beautiful sunsets from from the lanai/beach! I would certainly suggest this home to anyone that is looking for a non resort/hotel type of stay, you get to feel like a resident of Maui and it's a real treat!

The beach is on a shallow lagoon with a fringing reef, where locals fish and gather seaweed in the tide pools. Depending on time of the year and the weather. Beyond the lagoon is the open water, facing west to beautiful sunsets. Whales can sometimes be seen and heard beyond the reef during the whale season. To the northwest the West Maui Mountains dominate. Our beach is very private with very few tourists. As it is located in local neighborhood. You are able to walk, within 4 minutes to many local shops, grocery stores, restaurants, McDonalds, Taco Bell, (and more), churches, drug stores, Kaiser, many rental companies for snorkeling, biggie board rental, surf boards, paddle boards and more. Safeway is located 3 blocks from the house and a local market, (great for fresh caught fish and local foods) There is a local Kihei Aquatic Center just 3 blocks away, that has free swimming in their 4 swimming pools. Our grandchildren love the High Dive Boards! There is also a wonderful toddler pool with big mushroom waterfall, the toddlers love it! Many fresh fruit and local fruit stands are near by. The last 5 years, the large sea turtles have come to lay their eggs at the end of the lawn area. If you come at a time when the turtles are hatching, you with see an opportunity of a life time. Watch the newly hatched babies make their way to the ocean at night. It is a sight to behold. Ocean waves can be heard and whales slapping their tails in the ocean, from the house. Especially, at night. we would suggest bringing binoculars. The Whale Foundation is located just blocks from the house. Many charter boats for Ocean fishing trips, whale watching boats, tour boats, snorkeling boats, all located close to the house. No need to drive around the island for catch a good tour. There is a large community park just a couple of blocks away with many activities, great for children. Skating park, volleyball, picnic areas with BBQ'S, skateboard park, children playground. Great family fun for all located on Kamaole Beach. One of 3 Kamaole Beachs. Locals note them as the Best Beaches on Maui. Many local golf courses are near by, including the beautiful Wailea Golf Courses. You might get luck and watch a Professional to the public.

As you drive to the house from the airport, you might find it helpful to stop by Costco, Target, Walmart and more, to get your groceries and personal needs.

Kihei Town area is a very small, local town. Easy to get around, has really anything you could want during your visit. House is conveniently located for your convenience. Our guests love being able to walk to local shops and restaurants. Please let us know if you have any questions about your stay. We are more than happy to help you.
