About Wendi Brandt
My name is Wendi and I was born on Maui in Kula. Every weekend we as a child we would come down and spend it in Makena. It is a very special place to me and I know as soon as you visit, it will become one for you too. We are not a hotel or condo, but a little slice of heaven. I try to make sure that your stay is a special one. I can talk about it for hours so if you call, make sure you have some time! I dont offer online booking because Id rather get to know my guest and make sure they feel comfortable with renting from us.
Wendi Brandt purchased this Cottage in 1946
Why Wendi Brandt chose Wailea
This property has been in my family for 3 generations and will stay in my family for many more. My grandmother use to say Makena means work' and I didn't understand until I was older how much I was willing to work to preserve our little slice paradise.
What makes this Cottage unique
Waking up to the sounds of the waves on the shore. Having coffee while watching the turtles feed off the rocks. Picking mango's and bananas right from the trees for breakfast. Its not a condo...its your own place to enjoy.

Paradise in Maui
The location was amazing. You can snorkel right off the front of the house, watch the turtles swim and watch the boats go in and out. The beach was a short 5 min walk away with plenty of restaurants close by. Can't wait to go back.
Sweet little spot
This is our second time at this property and it’s so perfect. We love this quiet corner of Maui and this little cottage is perfect for 2.
Once in a lifetime location
Your own house, private, quiet.
Your own tide pools and the best snorkeling out the back door. Turtle beach a short walk away though you see them from the property too. Absolutely epic property I would come back to Maui but ONLY if Wendi’s place was available
Private and Peaceful location close to everything you need
We had a great 10 days here starting with freshly picked bananas and coconut the afternoon we arrived and an ongoing supply of mango and limes from the garden. Great sunsets every evening and turtles to entertain us. We had been concerned about the lack of air conditioning but opening windows and vents gave a great cooling breeze through the whole house augmented by ceiling fans so heat was never an issue. The snorkeling is great and there is a sand beach two houses down where it is easy to get in/out of the water if the waves against the rocks make you nervous about swimming directly from the house. Everything you need is provided to fulfill your dreams of a relaxing island vacation.
We're still homesick for this amazing place! South Maui is lined with huge, upscale hotels--to find a place like this is truly unique. Excellent snorkeling just a short walk away in both directions, mango a day falling off the tree just ready to eat, mix of sun and shade. We saw a turtle swimming right next to the shore.
If you'd like a place to unwind that's close to good restaurants, snorkeling, swimming, boogie boarding, etc., look no more!
270 degree views of beautiful Maui coastline and sunsets; cozy property, perfect for anniversary
Hotels with oceanfront views may be your idea of ideal Hawaiian vacation accommodations, but this property opens up a new paradigm. The Mauibeachcottage is private, with enough grassy area in front of the home to spread out, lounge, or BBQ, while providing private access to the water for snorkeling. The kitchen, living area, bathroom, and bedroom are comfortable enough that we never felt the need to leave the property to get out. This is the opposite of our hotel experience; no matter how nice the amenities a hotel has, we feel that staying in the room all day is wrong. Not so here.....this has everything we want minus the daily housekeeping services. Shopping and restaurants are very close within a few minutes driving. The proprietors are extremely nice and helpful, namely Wendi! Looking forward to coming back again and again!
