Beautiful Ocean View, Meticulous Maui Cottage: a Must See!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The International Colony Club is a collection of "plantation style" uniquely "Hawaiian" cottages situated on meticulously landscaped grounds located right in the middle of the North Kaanapali Golf Course. Kaanapali beach, famous for incredible beauty and some of Maui's best snorkeling is only a few minute walk from the property. Beautiful gardens and 2 sparkling swimming pools are only steps away from the front door.

Our one-of-a-kind, completely remodeled cottage offers the most spectacular views on the entire property. Views of both Molokai and Lanai can be seen from this spacious, custom designed 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage. Vaulted ceilings, large modern kitchen, beautiful lanai with wrap around "hurricane" windows and open "great room" complete this treasure in paradise. State of the art sound system, TV and superior Wi-Fi coverage only add to the Aloha experience.

The entire premises has been meticulously remodeled including both bathrooms and bedrooms and appointed with custom island furniture and accessories throughout. Although the cottage does not have air conditioning, the numerous ceiling fans and extensive windows create a pleasant "airy" feel in any weather condition.

The fabulous pool is only a few steps away, and the lush surrounding gardens and landscape truly deliver the ultimate Hawaiian experience. Come and enjoy our magical getaway on the island of Maui.

About The Owner

I decided to rent our cottage and have been self managing this property now for 7 years. I truly believe in being a "hands on" owner and always promote great communication and my consistent availability to all guests. My numerous property reviews mention this ownership philosophy as a critical element to a successful vacation, and I feel this attention to detail and pride of ownership enhances my guest's experience.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1991

Why The Owner chose Maui

The International Colony Club is a unique, VERY Hawaiian accommodation option that offers a much more interesting and relaxing experience when compared to the typical hotel. We purchased this particular cottage due to its superior location within the property as well as its proximity to my favorite beach in Maui. The views are unequaled, the pool is convenient and the spacious distance between other cottages and meticulously kept gardens and grounds make this a particularly special cottage within the ICC property.

What makes this cottage unique

Having a nice "home" to come from the beach to that is quiet, spacious and a comfortable refuge from the busy Maui day really adds to the vacation experience. Preparing selected meals in a large, modern, and well appointed kitchen can take the bite out of needing to rely on restaurants/hotel food for every meal.

I have been involved in every step of this cottage's extensive remodeling, kitchen design, interior design and landscaping improvements. You will immediately see a true pride of ownership in the quality of finishes and attention to detail in every area, including the overall cleanliness of the cottage.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

I lost many hours searching for just the right place and found paradise. This is an amazing vacation property! The grounds of the International Colony Club are gorgeous. The path to the unit winds through beautifully landscaped gardens with colorful and sweet smelling flowers and plants. The pool is right out the back door and is an oasis of calm surrounded by swaying palms. This unit is bright and airy and immediately felt like home. It was clean and well maintained. The lay out works great for a family. It was especially nice to have a full kitchen so we could cook dinner after our very successful fishing charter with Aloha Blue Waters. If cooking isn't your thing check out Slappy Cakes, Leoda's Kitchen + Pie Shop, or Teddy's Bigger Burger joint. Memorable. There is a great snorkeling beach walking distance from the house (even for mobility impaired me). We saw all kinds of fish and even turtles right there. This place is close to everything you could want to do but a world away from the crowded hotels in the Kaanapali Resort area across the street. This place is great and we hope to come back again.

Really enjoyed!

A well-located, beautiful cottage with plenty of rooms and spaces. We can see the ocean and sunset from the living room, which is amazing. it takes just 10 seconds to a swimming pool. Great place for families with active kids!

So in love with this cottage and the island

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Maui this trip. Even when inside, we were able to experience Maui with views of the ocean and the outside folliage. It was just a short walk to the beach. We will be back to Maui and this cottage!!

This place has it all

its not a super fancy resort apartment BUT Its a home away from home, completely well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your holiday.

We arrived in the dark, it was easy to find (even when your driving from the airport on the opposite side of the road to usual and tired from a LONG flight)

The gardens are lovely and the pool, well the pool is right next to the condo, hardly anyone else was using it, it was like our own private pool.

The condo itself was nice and clean and very comfortable, close to many beaches both walking and driving distance.

I highly recommend this place if you are after something a bit more private than a big noisy resort, its an older style condo but this just adds to the charm.

Terry is fabulous to deal with :)

Beautiful home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great space - close to the beach, very roomy, gorgeous view and surroundings. I knew it was a special place when both vacation babysitters (whose job involves seeing lots of different vacation rentals and hotels) remarked how spacious and homey and nice it was compared to what they normally see. It was also great to be just a five min walk from kaanapali beach! My favorite part was by far the sun room area, which was the perfect place to read and soak in the amazing ocean views. I was also very pleasantly surprised to learn that the house provided all of the beach amenities we'd need (towels, coolers, umbrella).

There were just two things I would improve upon - the second bedroom, where we set up our one year old, didn't have blinds so it made it a bit harder for him to get to sleep. And that bedroom also was open air (the wall between that room and the living room didn't extend all the way up), so we had to be extra quiet once he went to bed.

Overall, a great place! Highly recommended!

This comfortable, clean, functional cottage is across the street from the Westin ocean villas.

  • 4 of 5

After arriving in the dark, it was a joy to wake up to the beautiful ocean view and well maintained property of the international colony cottages. Although the noise from the highway was ever present, the feeling of calm and beautiful setting of this place was a welcome retreat after spending the day on the kaanapali hotel strip. We had our friends come over for dinner and they all enjoyed the comfortable, nicely decorated home, the refreshing pool and glorious sunsets. This unit was well stocked, from kitchen utensils to office supplies. We also appreciated the convenience of the side yard for hanging up suits and towels, and storing beach toys. Having a washer, dryer and gas BBQ is a huge bonus during a busy beach vacation. We were slightly inconvenienced by the tv remote needing batteries and the propane tanks needing filling, but overall rather fell in love with the place. Warning: you may need earplugs to compensate for the loud bids singing each morning, which is obviously a vacation kind of problem. We loved the birds, geckos, landscape, pool, and lovely home.
