About Amy Anderson

We are a fun family of 6. We love the outdoors and we love to travel. We appreciate a great place to stay with our family that is not too expensive so we try to provide the same opportunity on our little island.

Amy Anderson purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Amy Anderson chose Maui

I fell in love with this cottage because of the views, the neighborhood and the open feeling of the house. It is close to everything that we need, yet has a country feel. It is a very good and comfortable place to be.

What makes this cottage unique

The sunsets on the deck are great. The bird watching is fun and the views of the mountains are inspiring. Very private and quiet yet close to town and the beach.

Great Cottage in Upcountry

  • 5 of 5

Amy's cottage was the perfect place for my family. We started out with two of us on the first night and added three more for the second night. The next day we lost those three (they went to stay with other friends) but added three more family members. There were plenty of places to sleep. The cottage provided all we needed to make breakfasts, get cleaned up, and just enjoy the beautiful landscaping. It is quiet and the stars are plentiful. What a great place!

Stayed in the cottage for a month and it was perfect! Great neighborhood and property felt private. Back porch is wonderful. Kitchen had everything we needed and king bed was so comfortable. We have family in Makawao and love spending time there! We are so thankful to have found Amy's cottage and can't wait to be back.

Thank you!!

Perfect quiet comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful month at this nice private condo. It's only 15 minutes to the North shore and Costco. Amy and Troy are very good hosts. It's in a nice quiet subdivision that's close to a nice recreation park that has paved paths for walking, tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields. Pukalani golf course is only 7 minutes away and a very good value for golf. You can buy a weekly or monthly pass.

Good "Home Base"

  • 4 of 5

Friendly neighborhood, 5 minute drive to reach the main roads to airport, beach, attractions. We appreciated the kitchen appliances, storage containers, and utensils for cooking in; you will want to check for more specific needs (e.g., less-used ingredients, foil) before shopping. Provided beach towels and clothesline perfect for beach days. Deck cushions very worn, but the view while relaxing at the table is a treasure any time of the day---stars, too! A full length mirror would be handy; and bring your own reading/games for indoor days, as the internet/tv were sporadic during our ten days.

Mountain Views

  • 4 of 5

Very roomy cottage away from everything. Comfy king bed in master bedroom. We usually stay on the beach on the west side of the island and thought to try something different. Must say I prefer seeing and hearing the water. If you prefer a more private non touristy setting this is perfect for you and affordable. Only negative is that it needs a thorough cleaning top to bottom.

Owner's Response: Thank you for trying upcountry! The house is always pest free and clean when you arrive, but if food is left out, or not swept up then bugs will come.

Wonderful stay - everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient to Haleakala and roomier than the photos convey. Bed & bath linens very nice, and king bed super comfortable. Had the weather been nicer, we would have spent more time on the deck, which has a most amazing forest view, for being in a neighborhood. Excellent value.

The cottage is located in a convenient area, away from town with cooler temperatures, and a short drive to everything fun.

Makawao town is an eclectic town with restaurants, lots of fun shops, a farmers market, library, and a famous 4th of July Parade!

We especially love being close to the forest and being able to drive just down the hill to surf, paddle board or swim.
