Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful home. It is so quiet and peaceful here. Maui is such a beautiful place. This is definitely our first trip of many to come. We were able to see the entire island while we were here and every place is so wonderful and extremely beautiful.

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage to be quiet and private- exactly as advertised. The owners have thought of every little detail- coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards etc and the interior was beautiful. We made full use of the indoor Jacuzzi each night and loved the outdoor lounge area. We really enjoyed sitting under the trees and reading in the lounge chairs in the afternoons. We had absolutely everything we needed and were very impressed at how well equipped the cottage is.

We often book through vrbo and sometimes you don't know exactly what you are going to get but this place was spot on- an absolute slice of heaven. We were sad to leave and can't wait to come back. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone-. Being big Jimi Hendrix fans we especially loved the history of the building and the surrounding area- thanks for telling us all about it- what a special treat.

Book this place- you will not be disappointed!

Beautiful remote location.

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do the property justice. Great quality finishes. Only suggestion, it gets pretty cold upcountry. The cottage could use a heater or at least an area rug in front of the sofa.

Great spot away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for somewhere that's a bit quieter and cooler away from the beach then this is a great place to stay. Makawao is located 'upcountry' which basically means farmland but is beautiful and green, very relaxing and away from the crowds. We found the property well kept, the owners Siobhan and Geoff very helpful and nice to get away to somewhere different after a day at the beach. Would highly recommend this property and would have no hesitation in staying again.

Great house! Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent over 2 weeks at this property and couldn't have chosen a better location. The days were warm and bright, the nights were the perfect temperature- not too warm and a perfect breeze came through the windows. We saw deer in the front yard and heard owls in the neighboring eucalyptus forest. The kids loved it- they provided every beach toy imaginable and there was tons of room for them to run around. The interior of the house was beautifully appointed and we had everything we needed and more. Our last night we had a fabulous barbeque and we can't wait to come back!

lovely escape

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage/house for almost 2 weeks. Excellent location for our work and a wonderful place to come and unwind after a long day.

We will definitely be back. Full kitchen, comfy beds, quality linens, jacuzzi tub, all around excellence.
