About Cynthia Mifsud

My husband and I have been married for 28 years and have three children. We love Maui and purchased our cottage in 2007. We are currently the primary caregivers to our elderly parents in Michigan. We fell in love with Maui on our honeymoon in 1988 and hope to move there someday.

Cynthia Mifsud purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Cynthia Mifsud chose Lahaina

My husband and I honeymooned on Maui 28 years ago and fell in love with Maui. In 2007 on a return trip we fell in love with our home and decided this was where we wanted to retire. We currently live in Michigan but visit as often as we can and can't wait to make our dreams come true and move there but until then we love to share our home with those seeking the Aloha Spirit. We have amazing views of the Pacific and West Maui Mountains in a quiet beautiful setting.

What makes this cottage unique

We are located in a beautiful neighborhood away from all the tourist where you can truly enjoy the beauty that is Hawaii. Great views of the Pacific Ocean and neighboring islands and a short 15 minute drive to the gorgeous beaches of Kaanapali. We are a five minute drive from the historic town of Lahaina where you can enjoy fine dining, gift shops, art galleries etc....

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with this home and its' owners. Cynthia is so responsive to questions. The house had EVERYTHING that we needed for our vacation. Our favorite spot in the house was the lanai where we spent most of our time enjoying the cool morning and evening weather and ate some of our meals. The island is spectacular and if we are able to come back to Maui, we would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Cynthia, for helping make this one of our best vacations yet!

Beautiful! Amazing house with incredible views! Owners are incredibly nice. Great yard!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house in an amazing location. The house looks exactly like the photos. The 4 beds can easily fit 8 adults. The pull out couches are rather uncomfortable if you need more sleeping space, but we bought 2 small single air mattresses and left them at the house, which should provide additional sleeping options for kids or anyone else who could stay in a single bed. The owners are super nice and very responsive. They are available via text all the time and always responded quickly with answers to our questions. The house is about 5 minutes from Launipoko Beach Park (nice small local beach, be wary of sharp coral, bring water shoes) and about 15 min from Ka'anapali Beach which is one of the nicest on the island. The house is about 10 minutes from Lahaina. The house has a well groomed yard which is perfect if you have kids who need to run around. The house has amazing views of the ocean, sunsets, and mountains of west Maui. Overall an amazing spot, nice and secluded and off the beaten path.

Lovely Property

  • 4 of 5

Although not located directly to beach access, the home has an outstanding view and is a short drive down the hill to a beach area. The home comfortably suited our 7 adults and 1 child with 4 bedrooms and hide-a-beds. The guest house was perfect for my son and family while the rest of the adults had bedrooms in the main house. It is well stocked with cooking utensils. We ate all our meals outside and enjoyed the lovely grounds. It is in a good location, just a short 5 minute drive into Lahaina. We all enjoyed our stay very much.

STOP LOOKING!!! This is the place for you

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this home from 10/26 - 11/2 2016. It was wonderful. We had 9 people staying at the home and there was room for all. It has a wonderful view off the lanai with a nice big grassy area leading to a beautiful shot of the ocean. Nice furniture to sit on while starring at the ocean. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were up to date with walk in showers in two of them. The kitchen is a bit small, the thing don't go to Maui to spend it in the kitchen. Plenty of room for two people to make a meal for the group. It is nice and quiet in the evening. There is a nice washer & dryer in the garage if needed.

It takes about five minutes to get to Lahaina or ten to get to Kaanapali. There are beaches within five minutes. Many wonderful restaurants to choose from.

The owner usually responds within a few minutes, if e-mailed. She is very friendly and informative and will help with suggestions on activities or places to go.

The only concern that I had the whole time we were there, is that there was no cleaning supplies there. Cleaning the kitchen after a meal was a bit of a challenge before we went to the local Safeway to purchase sponges and cleaner. I understand that you are renting a house and not a Hotel. I would just have supplies for people to keep my property clean during their stay. This was the first time that we rented through VRBO and it might be our lack of experience. It was deffinately not a huge issue by any streatch.

This is a wonderful home owned by a very nice family, and it abled my family to have a once in a lifetime vacation. I would go back tomorrow ifI could..............I might need to wait a year.

If you choose to stay here you will have the time of your lives.
