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 Lahaina
We began our extensive search for the perfect family property and found it at the low-density, quiet International Colony Club with its 10 acres of lovely tropical gardens and two 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!

Great third stay
This cottage is absolutely nice, next to the pool and located in safe, beautiful and well kept surroundings. Our third stay in here speaks for itself. Thank you Suzanne!
Wonderful stay; would be perfect with A/C
Lovely tropical plantings and pool just steps away. The beach (five minutes walk) has some of the best snorkeling we found in Maui. Other great beaches, good restaurants, surfing lessons, well-stocked grocery, museums, and shopping all within a short drive. A great location to explore Northern and Western Maui. The house was also well-equipped for home cooking and grilling and we had some great meals at home in the evenings.
We loved everything about the house except for the lack of A/C, which we knew about (it was in the write-up) before renting it. It was hottest during the afternoons, even with all the fans on and windows opened, although it cooled off nicely at night. With no A/C, we slept with windows opened, which was fine except for one night when the neighbors were talking outside on their lanai and woke us up at 11:30pm (notwithstanding the rule of no noise between 10pm and 8am). I called out for them to lower their voices and they did so. But all in all we loved the house, which was very well-equipped.
Aloha and thank you for a lovely follow up to your stay at the cottage. We are so glad everything worked well, and you had a great vacation on Maui! We are installing a screen door at the front door to catch the cooling afternoon trade breezes that work wonders in cooling the temperatures. Enjoy the rest of your summer, and we look forward to having you as our guests in the future. Mahalo!
Summer Hawaiian vacation
Very helpful to checkout late as our flight wasn’t until the evening. Nice home base for our visit to the island.
Perfect Fit On Maui
This cottage was the most well equiped rental that we have ever experienced. The only thing missing was a champagne stopper, so we just had to drink the whole bottle. The kitchen had plenty of pots and pans and all the appliances we needed to cook all of our meals. We used the pool much more than we anticipated as it was quite hot the 10 days we were here and the pool was so convenient and lovely. Access to the beach was easy and we walked or ran on the boardwalk daily. Trips to beaches near Kihei, north Maui attractions, and hiking in Haleakala National Park were all easily reached from this location. The property was well maintained and we enjoyed many hours relaxing on the screened in lanai. We would most definitely like to come back to this area and stay in this unit again.
One of our most amazing vacations ever! Highly recommend for relaxation and feeling at home!
I don't think I ever felt this much "home away from home" as in this cottage - from the moment we parked our car and walked in, it felt just right. The place just has such a homey, cozy feeling...
The cottage is extremely well equipped, everything was spotless, the kitchen and also all of the other rooms provide everything one could possibly need (including boogie boards, lawn chairs, etc). There were four of us and we were very comfortable.
The surroundings are simply gorgeous: in the morning, we woke up to the singing of birds and the fragrance of Plumeria and all the other exotic flowers! The gardens around the house is a pleasure for all senses. Also, the pool is just a few yards away. To get to airport beach, one of our favorite beaches that we discovered on our vacation, it is not even a 5 minute walk!
It was hard to leave, we definitely want to come back and we would recommend the cottage to anyone who looks for a relaxing holiday with an authentic Maui feeling!
Suzanne's beach house has absolutely everything you could want for a family vacation. We were in Maui for my son's wedding and this was the perfect place for myself, my husband, my older son, his wife and our two year old granddaughter. Not only is this home beautiful inside...it was clean, the beds were great, the pack and play provided for our granddaughter was perfect. The location is outstanding... we loved using the pool a few steps from the house every day. We walked to the beach and built sand castles with the sand toys provided... the umbrellas and beach pads were also used and appreciated. There are many fans in the home and when you open the windows there is a lovely breeze that keeps the house cool. We truly enjoyed our Kona coffee every morning in the beautiful screened lanai surrounded by gorgeous greenery and flowers, and a view of the ocean in the distance. Absolutely no complaints. Would highly recommend Suzzanes home to anyone!!!
We are honored you our cottage for your perfect family celebration on Maui! You captured all the magic of being there, and we’re delighted you had a wonderful time. Thank you for noting the big and small pleasures about staying at the cottage, and in Kaanapali. Wishing you all the best, and we look forward to your return!
Quiet and private tropical setting a five-minute walk from a spectacular golden sand beach with sparkling clear water for snorkeling and swimming with abundant sea life in a marine reserve at gorgeous Kahekili Beach Park/N. Ka'anapali Beach. Complex is well-located for easy access to all west Maui has to offer from water activities to shopping, dining, and sightseeing.
