Seculed, Private Romantic Cottage!
Dennis and Cynthia Hudson
About Dennis and Cynthia Hudson
We grew up in Southern California and visited Maui numerous times but never thought we could ever live here. Finally, in 2011, the stars aligned and we were able to leave the mainland and now enjoy paradise every day!
Dennis and Cynthia Hudson purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Dennis and Cynthia Hudson chose Kihei
We loved this property and especially the separate cottage. The ocean views and the peaceful setting sold us.

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage. It exceeded our expectations: it's private, well lit, the furniture is comfortable, and the bed is fantastic. Many of the small amenities are available. It's clear the owners care for the cottage and want to make the experience a good one. The price:quality ratio is excellent.
Romantic Cottage near Wailea
We loved our stay at Maui Hale Olina! Dennis and Cynthia are exceptional hosts who care. This was our 5th trip to Hawaii (all vrbo rentals), and we can easily place their cottage at the top.
Starting with the location, it is ideal for enjoying the beaches and excellent snorkeling of South Maui. We liked being up on the hill, sitting on the lanai with a view of the ocean, surrounded by palm trees and lush garden and serenaded by tropical birds. The cottage is private, quiet, comfortable (with A/C and fans). The kitchen is fully stocked. King bed is like sleeping on a cloud. Dennis brought us fresh mangoes and bananas. Our hosts provided a wealth of information and tips that made our experience even better. Mahalo!
We often rent with VRBO and have had many great experiences. This rental beats them all. Dennis and Cynthia are gracious hosts and the cottage is supplied with everything you need. We especially appreciated all the beach gear and the well-equipped kitchen. The balcony is an awesome place to enjoy a great view, well away from the throngs of people elsewhere. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip!
Ideal ohana away from home!
From the minute we booked this property and throughout our entire stay, Dennis was very communicative, helpful, and friendly. The location was perfect - far enough away from the throngs of visitors, yet close enough to all the best beaches, shopping, and restaurants.
Dennis voiced that it was the hosts’ intent to provide pretty much everything one could possibly need for water sports, cooking, relaxing, and researching places to visit/eat so that their “guests would not need to rent or do without”. Needless to say, they certainly delivered that! My husband and I enjoyed our stay there so much that this has become our preferred ohana away from home!
Thank you so much, Dennis! We’ll see you again!
Let me just start by saying, I have never written a review for anything. But I needed to tell you about the Hale Olina.
Dennis & Cynthia, this cottage, the view, the neighborhood, everything, was AMAZING! Dennis & Cynthia were so kind. And so helpful. They had recommendations for places to eat and things to do. They had the cottage stocked with basic household things that would need. Also, had beach chairs, towels and snorkel equipment to use. We didn’t have to rent any beach stuff.
The cottage itself was perfect. The view was amazing and could see the ocean perfectly. The balcony/porch was where we spent majority of the time. We would spend a couple hours there each morning eating breakfast and drinking coffee to start our day. It was so quiet and peaceful. And even picked up a few lunches and dinners so we could come back and eat on this balcony. It felt like we were secluded. It was so peaceful.
The bed was so comfortable, and the bathroom very nice. And the kitchen and living room were great.
The cottage is close to everything. Great restaurants, grocery stores and beaches. A quick drive to get anywhere.
This place was perfect for my newly husband and me. The cottage was truly amazing for our honeymoon. We said several times that we’re so glad we didn’t stay at a busy resort or any other house/place. Seriously our best decision for the whole trip! Hopefully we will be back soon and we’ll definitely be staying here again.
Thank you Dennis & Cynthia!!!
