Beautiful Ocean View, Meticulous Custom 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 8 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 Lahaina

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.

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great time at this cottage, a nice home away from home. It provided an ideal base of operations for our excursions around the island. We did have an ant problem in the kitchen while we were there, which I gather is a common problem on the island. The owner was responsive however, and sent an exterminator out to deal with it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! I'm very happy that the cottage worked out so well for your vacation. Yes, pest control on the islands is a very busy business! I am always ready for the issue should that come up, and I am glad that my team was able to come quickly and take care of the ant problem. Hope to see you again in the future!

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 enjoyed this home, and found it provided everything we needed and more. We had ample space, and the kitchen was fully stocked. Loved the ocean view, the pool that was just steps away, and the beauty of the property. For beach toys - the owner stocked the outdoor closet with a cart for hauling beach toys around, plus boogie boards, snorkeling masks, beach chairs, etc. We had a great stay and hope to come back soon!

Exceptional Rental Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our Maui stay. I'll try to touch on thoughts outside of what has already been mentioned...perfect location, etc. We've stayed at a number of the other cottages in this community and this cottage has them all beat. The layout was spacious, the beds are heavenly, the large ceiling and openness of the living room and the entry space, along with the dinning area was perfect. Some of the details that were notable but not always mentioned in previous reviews that made our stay enjoyable were things like refrigerator has filtered water and ice maker, kitchen was fully stocked with paper towels, napkins and dish soap. Full set of great pots and pans kitchen knives etc. Grill. Newer washer and dryer. Very spacious and clean private outside area to hang towels, swim suits etc. Also, a full closet of needed beach accessories like Tommy Bahama beach chairs, cooler with wheels and boogie boards. The cottage is also stocked with 5 new thick large beach towels. The wifi along with the Bose system sync'd with easy and provided perfect sound throughout the cottage. The natural lighting in this cottage is amazing, ocean views & sunsets. A huge plus when renting this cottage is Terry's professionalism. Throughout each step Terry's communication was impeccable, from our first inquiry to booking with Terry, along with an initial greeting once we arrived to see if there was anything we needed or if we had any questions. Customer service from Terry was perfect. Cannot wait to book next stay in this cottage. Mahalo!

Incredible place to relax and enjoy Maui

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find this cottage for our first trip to Maui -- it was like a home away from home. It was the perfect place for our family to enjoy and explore paradise -- close to everything but away from the crowds. It had everything we needed to prepare/enjoy meals together as a family. It had beach gear to enjoy sun/sand. It was a great spot to begin/end outings and day trips to Lahaina Old Town, Hana, Kihei and others. All in all, we were more than impressed with this home -- responsive owner, friendly neighbours, clean, spacious, quiet, amenities and proximity to beach, shopping and more. Even though there is a beach just a short distance from the cottage, we had an opportunity to explore beaches all over the island. We enjoyed morning coffee and evening wine from the large sunroom with sea breezes and views of the ocean, sunsets, Lanai and Molokai. We hope to return and would definitely recommend this home for your stay in Maui!

Spacious beautiful cottage in premium Kaanapali !!

  • 4 of 5

Upon getting ready to return home from a 10 day, 9 night stay at this beautiful Maui Cottage, I was trying to figure out a way to stay longer :)

This is not a condo -- it's like a 2-bedroom home, spacious and beautifully appointed . . it features comfortable furniture, great sound system (bluetooth compatible), super comfy beds (heavenly soft mattresses), and a top-notch kitchen . .

There's a beautiful view (albeit 1/4 to 1/3 mile+/- from the beach) of the ocean from both the outside lawn area, and from the inside living room/dining room . . having the pool right outside the cottage is another great plus . . also, the cottage is equipped well w/ beach-oriented items . .

The only kind of disappointing issues were:

1) there's no outside lanai/deck/porch accessible from the unit -- it appears that the original outdoor lanai was added in the spacious interior of the cottage . .

2) the second bedroom is partially open to the kitchen/living room -- which somewhat impacts privacy issues . .

3) there was no air conditioning . .

However, there are so many things to love about the Maui Cottage that the positives overcome those 3 issues . . plus, working with Terry, the owner/manager, was an absolute pleasure . . he was totally ready and available to help in every way possible to make the trip a dream !!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! Yes, this place is unique and much different from a condo as the house is "free-standing" with much room in between the other cottages. This was built prior to the high density model that is prominent today. The house has been expanded by incorporating the original outdoor patio into a beautiful indoor lanai. We felt that this was a major benefit when purchasing the house, as this design adding considerable living space. Also, we felt that the "open air" guest bedroom configuration was a pleasing architectural element, but I can understand your comment. Additionally, we always felt that air conditioning was unnecessary due to all the windows that surround the entire house, but again, I understand that some people really prefer air conditioning vs. multiple ceiling fans and windows. You were a great guest, and I sincerely hope to have you again in the future! Terry
