Ideal location close to great beach, and walking distance to town and swimming pool in a quite and safe neighborhood
Check the PRICES for dwellings (in a Quite, Tropical Setting, with a private SWIMMING POOL!) Nothing compares to this special home by the BEACH & LAHAINA TOWN!!
Your home has made our stay in Maui more like a vacation than a tourist experience. After a day of activities, it was always comforting to know that we could return to your lovely home, cook our own meals, lounge by the pool, and most of all - experience the quiet solitude! I definitely plan to do a return trip... the jacuzzi bathtub and outdoor shower are the best!
We were eager to be in Maui. The Cottage was nice and quiet. There were things that made our stay only OK. Our hosts were obviously not well and therefore not really wanting to interact with us. The TV system was challenging and when I asked Robert he was very
curt. I only disturbed him once in eight days but obviously that was too much. There was
too little light to be able to read in the Livingroom or bedroom so that is a big deal to me. Disappointing as it was the most expensive accomodations of our trip.
What a perfect little bungalow for our Maui visit. We had just what we needed and loved being away from the tourist hustle and bustle. Yet, so close to walk or drive to everything we wanted to do. We would definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay at Bob and Denise's cottage in Lahaina. We're not into staying at big resorts and have stayed at VRBOs in the islands before. We find it's a great way to vacation in the islands. This was a great location for walking into and exploring Lahaina, with easy vehicle access to the main highway. Neighborhood is quiet, and we loved waking up to the mynah birds and doves/pigeons. We had outstanding views of the West Maui Mountains off the deck/patio.
The cottage was the perfect size for a couple. It would be a bit tight if you had other people or kids. The place was clean, with a comfortable queen-sized bed and a nice living/kitchen area. The furnishings are a bit worn, as others have reported. The loveseat, in addition to the large rattan chair and couch, made the living area a bit cramped, and we would've preferred it wasn't there. Kitchen was fairly well stocked, unless you're a foodie and expect all sorts of handy kitchen gadgets.
My main suggestion to the owners would be to provide better reading lights. Since the weather was marginal for part of our stay, we did spend some time reading and relaxing. The lamps they had were a little too dim.
The little swimming pool in the yard is delightful. We loved all the tiny lizards that were running around the yard. We didn't see many geckos, though.
Bob and Denise were very accommodating and thoughtful and were concerned about our comfort. When we were having trouble with the WIFI, Bob called in his IT guy and had it fixed in short order.
If you're looking for reasonably priced accommodations on Maui, away from the contrived atmosphere of the resorts, this cottage is a great way to go. Buy your own groceries. Cook / BBQ your own food. Eat out once in a while.
Oh, and the beach is a just a couple of blocks from the cottage. We didn't swim there. When the weather was nice, we were off sailing or snorkeling. But we saw people enjoying the water, which is protected by a reef. Surf/SUP lessons are offered on the beach. Very convenient!
We stayed for two weeks at the Tropical Gardens home, and couldn't have made a better choice for a peaceful vacation! The quiet neighborhood and private pool were so relaxing, and the home had everything we needed to stay in and unwind, as well as chairs and towels to take to the beach. If busy and noisy resorts are not for you, this is an option you should consider! Thank you, Bob and Denise. We hope to return to Maui someday, and will definitely look for availability at one of your properties.
Robert and Denise offer a home away from home. All the amenities and comforts, including a great deal of privacy, are there. Our trip included an assortment of scenic drives, beach time, and walks around Lahaina and other communities on the island. The private swimming pool was very inviting, and about the same temperature as ocean water, if not a bit warmer, so many of our days started with a swim there. A couple of days we just enjoyed quiet reading with a bottle of wine. (This would be a great refuge for a writer.) The home is tucked away in a neighborhood where actual Maui residents live, so walking from the cottage offers a local view, but everything is close. Lahaina is a relatively small town.
Bob had helpful suggestions for local points of interest, including restaurants and resort beaches, and before our trip gave me solid advice that shorts work every where (even for a nice dinner out). If and when we return to Maui we'll check availability here first.
This small cottage was perfect. The owner's provided everything we needed for the beach & it was only a short walk to the nearby beach and a short drive to many more. The immaculate pool is between the cottage and main house. We used the pool quite often and felt we were given a lot of privacy. The cottage is a bit dated but that didn't take away from our stay at all. The bed was very comfortable and the double outside shower was great. It's close to many activities and you can walk to downtown Lahaina. The owners were very nice to deal with and made us feel welcome to ask them anything about area. They also checked in with us to make sure everything was OK.
