Private, Peaceful Country Cottage in a Park-Like Setting...
About S Wilson
We're butterfly farmers and goat lovers!
S Wilson purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why S Wilson chose Makawao
Beautiful location- nestled among 100' eucalyptus trees, several hundred yards from the main road at the end of a tree lined driveway just minutes from Makawao town. Axis deer can often be seen in the front yard and endangered native Hawaiian bats can be seen flying between the trees at dusk. The property is surrounded by open pasture land and is a vibrant farming community. Horses, cattle and goats abound throughout the area amongst a sprinkling of protea, cactus and citrus farms which can be all be seen within minutes of the cottage. Friendly locals, upscale boutiques and art galleries with fabulous restaurants are just two miles away in Makawao town.
What makes this Cottage unique

Loved our stay! Very private and tranquil! Will definitely come again!
Clean, quaint with all amenities. Loved the hot tub! Very beautiful and peaceful property! Was also nice to leave the heat of Kihei which is where we live. Mahalo for allowing us to stay on your property!
Mahalo Alice and Joe! It was so nice to be able to host such wonderful guests :) Thank you so much- we do hope that we’ll see you again soon!
Stunning quite stay
Absolutely wonderful experience in Maui. Quiet and peaceful is accurate. The only down side is you are not allowed to walk on the road because of the neighbors. That was a shame because our kids that we had to pay additional for would have loved to walk up and enjoy the farm animals. Also the house is billed for sleeps 6 but you have to pay additional for each quest over 2 people. I felt nickeled and dimmed. The laundry was fabulous. The house perfect !
Oh dear- it does appear that this guest was a bit confused during her short stay- what a shame! Our friendly Dwarf goats, sheep and ducks are actually located on the property itself, at the top of the property, not down any neighbors driveway- perhaps they were confused by the neighbors sheep located by the road on the way in? We wish that this guest had mentioned it when we checked in with them and they told us how well their stay was going.
Also, like most vacation rentals we have a base price to accommodate the many couples that we rent to, with an additional fee for extra guests. This is clearly stated on the listing and vrbo gives a breakdown prior to booking. We find that experienced travelers are aware of this, and gives us the opportunity to offer more affordable options for a wider range of guests.
Such a shame that this guest did not communicate regarding the pets during her stay- we would have loved to introduce them all to the kids and we enjoy giving guests our little goat treats so that they can hand feed them!
Hidden Gem in Maui's Upper Country
What an amazing stay we had at this property. I have used VRBO for many years and I have never experienced a rental with all of the home essentials that was provided. It was so nice not to worry about purchasing all of the daily things that my family needs for a vacation. The beds are amazing and the bathrooms felt like we were in a 5 star resort. The owner was in contact with me before, during and after our stay. These personal touches went above and beyond my expectations for our mini vacation in the upper country. I highly recommend this property!
Mahalo Andi! It was such a pleasure to host you and all of your sweet family! We very much look forward to seeing you all again very soon :)
Excellent property. Couldn't have found a better place to stay.
Top notch property. Loved the beautiful landscape and quiet/peacefulness of the property. Cottage is well maintained. Couldn't have been happier. Much Mahalo for making this a great experience.
Cheers Mike! We're so glad that we could make your stay on Maui such a good one! Take care and mahalo for staying with us :)
