About Suzanne Haines

We are two couples who love the simple magic and outdoor lifestyle of Hawaii. We pooled our resources to find a piece of paradise in Maui for our families, friends, and hopefully someday our grandchildren to enjoy together.

Suzanne Haines purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Suzanne Haines chose Maui

We began our extensive search for the perfect family property and found it at International Colony Club with its 10 acres of lovely tropical gardens and pools, a quiet setting, friendly ambience, and a roomy cottage where we can spread out with family and friends, relax, and enjoy spectacular sunsets from our enclosed lanai. We wanted the perfect beach across the street for snorkeling, swimming, strolling at sunset. Paradise found!

What makes this cottage unique

Easy-access private cottage next to heated pool in lovely complex adjacent N. Kaanapali golf course for all types of travelers and adventurers; foam and gel king bed in master with ensuite bath; cooling gel foam-topped twins in second bedroom with adjacent bath; high-end linens; fully stocked kitchen with top of the line counter-top appliances, Cuisinart cookware, quality cutlery, gourmet coffee grinder and coffee maker; even an ice crusher for your sunset beverage on the spacious enclosed lanai. WiFi (no streaming). Refurnished with comfortable queen sleeper sofa; three lounging areas with lots of airy, sunny windows. One large enclosed lanai; separate smaller open lanai. Fan-cooled and comfortable with extra fans for your comfort. Beach towels, wheeled ice coolers, several beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, (2) bicycles with market baskets; newer Weber Spirit gas barbecue. Both lanais offer complete privacy with sunset views. Well-maintained, clean, comfortable home away from home.

A Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time, we decided our every-other-year visit to Maui is too infrequent, and will be returning next year! This house had everything and more. We kept finding more features to exclaim about, and everyone had their favorite spot to sink into.

Can't wait to come back.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife, daughter 5, son 3) stayed here for a week and would go back now if we could

Spacious cottage, fully equipped kitchen, great location and tons of toys for the kids to play with at the beach and pool.

Would highly recommend for young families and those looking for a nice, quiet retreat

Amazing sunsets with birds' songs

  • 5 of 5

You have a wonderful place with lots of opportunities; Ocean access, (board, surf, snorkel, paddle, kayak, etc.), Pool (sun bath, swim, refresh), tracking, biking, tennis and all beach activities. I need to mention the lovely sunsets with trees, flowers and ocean view.

Definitely I enjoyed the high ceiling with fans, also fully equipped kitchen with BBQ access. Library and the art pieces made my stay joyful. I will miss reading with palm trees sound with wind. It feels so wonderful to waking up with the voices of birds. It was pleasure to watch the universe at clear nights, I am sure most people will enjoy this lovely scene, especially near the pool with lighted water, even it is more beautiful during the full-moon.

I believe blowhole (North side of the island) is a place to see and enjoy. Near by city centers are nice and neat; I can recommend going to TIMES for grocery, it is really close here and they have good stuff. I would like to thank you for the bike share opportunity, it is a quick ride to TIMES (try sushi's :) )

I hiked up towards to hills, I found nice coffee farms :) they are not far away. Also walk paths at the beach side is nice and easy even with beach equipment, mostly shaded paths.

I just needed a sun cream :) the rest of my needs were already ready here, Thanks a lot for all. I will be visiting you again. Thank you for this great place. ALOHA

Everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was perfect. We have stayed in many VRBO's and this was one of the best stocked one. From the beach gear, the bikes, books, board games and a well stocked kitchen. The location was great to explore Maui and having a beach at our footsteps and a pool out the back door was great. We will miss our morning runs to Starbucks on the beach walk.

Thanks again
