Maui Ocean View House in Tropical Setting

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrms + 1 Queen and 1single bed, 1 Bath, (3 adults or 2 + 2 children)

Watch the sun set over the island of Lanai from your Maui lanai (porch). Whales, waves, and palm trees are also part of your view.

House has open-beam ceilings, bamboo-wood floors throughout, unique décor and personal touches that give this house a charming and comfortable setting. An additional outdoor shower with private enclosure gives you an added option of enjoying the jungle surroundings, with a warm shower under a fragrant plumeria tree after a day at the beach.

The house has a master bedroom with a queen bed, plus a smaller bedroom/library with a single bed. The property sleeps 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children, with the 2nd child on an air mattress or futon. There is a large living room, with a newly updated full kitchen and dining area. The lanai (porch) can be used for breakfast or dinner, with a double hammock for lounging about and watching the sunset. The kitchen is fully updated for a light and beautiful cooking area.

The house is furnished with the highest quality items such as 100% cotton sheets, Italian dishes, and original art. The house is fully equipped with washer/dryer, barbeque, air conditioning, ceiling fans, and free internet access.

The area is a family neighborhood on a quiet street that receives little traffic. The property is a 15 minute walk to Kiawakapu Beach. At night you can often hear the ocean from the lanai.

The neighborhood itself is located in South Maui ("the sun coast"). In this area it rarely rains, and it is usually sunny with cool ocean breezes. From this part of the island you can see the islands Kaho'olawe, Lana'I, and Molokini. To the south is the Wailea Resort area, only one block from the house. Wailea is the most exclusive part of Maui with 4 golf courses and scores of shops and restaurants, including the luxurious Shops of Wailea. It is also home to many hotels, including the Four Seasons, Grand Wailea, and Kea Lani.

To the north is Kihei, with more moderately priced restaurants ranging from local Deli's, Thai food, Sushi, and healthy eateries, and shops including video stores, movie theatres, and late night bars. All of this is within a 5 minute drive from the house. Best of all, Grace House is only a 10 minute drive to fantastic snorkeling, diving, and the State Park at Makena Beach. The area is also a wonderful place for biking. Maui is called No Ka Oi, which means "Maui is the best". Of all the Hawaiian Islands, Maui is the favorite; and the Wailea area is the best of Maui.

Best house in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

This is not our first stay on Maui and in this house, so we are absolutely sure that this is the best place to stay on the island!

Every time we come here it feels like home. The house has everything you might need, including an updated kitchen with all the utensils, two bedrooms with all the linens you need and a perfect deck to enjoy the sunset.

We love it here and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a local house to stay away from the crowds.

Relaxing patio

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable. We loved the patio with hammock! Also the beach chairs and umbrella were super convenient :) It was nice to be close to the beaches while still having privacy and the feel of living like a local. There was always street parking outside the rental and the neighbors were quiet. Would definitely recommend this place and stay again!

Cute Cottage Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here in March, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is tucked away on a quiet residential street, but is walking distance to the beach and all the shops/restaurants in Kihei. Also a great location for accessing the Wailea beach path if you're a runner or walker. We appreciated the two person hammock on the lanai, and the beach gear that was provided. They even had yoga mats - nothing like starting your day with a little yoga while overlooking the beautiful Pacific :-). The yard is beautifully landscaped and full of cute little lizards and birds. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a beautiful and quiet getaway!

Nice cottage style house near beach with all amenities.

  • 4 of 5

One of two cottage style houses on the property, but the distance between them was adequate to not interfere with each other.

Nice new kitchen was complete. Sitting area was comfy, but we had no time to use it as the beach is only few minutes away... Patio on the veranda has enough seating for 5 and is a treat to watch the sun set from.

Bedrooms have fans. House has airco. Washer and dryer next to the house, which were appreciated. Also an outside hose to rinse your stuff.

Don't forget to bring your own toilet paper, as 2 rolls for 3 people staying for a week is not quite enough... Don't understand why a little more of this cheap article was not provided.

Lots of linnens and towels.

We liked lizard watching in the garden. Many bird species visit the property.

A very nice place to stay and we can recommend it.

Perfect place to spend a couple of winter months

  • 5 of 5

As always, we loved our stay at Grace Cottage. It is located on a quiet street just a short walk from the best beach in Maui, and walking distance to several good restaurants in Kihei. The landlord takes pride in cleanliness, and the house is always well stocked with towels. We love the new two-person hammock on the expansive deck! The outdoor shower is wonderful, so we seldom use the one inside. We look forward to returning.

Amazing Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

First timers to Maui, we had a wonderful stay. Was a very quiet neighborhood and loved the location. Cottage was very clean and comfortable, we did shop for food and cooked in for several meals. Would recommend Walmart in Kahului (best food prices). We brought a TomTom with which made getting around the Island very easy. So much to do and see. We loved the Road to Hana, we took two days to explore. We purchased R2H CD guide at ABC store which was very helpful, as some land marks came up pretty quick on road. State parks were awesome, Haleakala has two locations tip: once you pay to enter first park fee was good for entry into other parks for a few days, ask! Waianpanapa State park is a must see, is located just before Hana and there was no entry fee. We booked all our Ocean trips , Whale watching, dinner cruise, and snorkeling through Pacific Whale Foundation, had a great experience with them, we saw whales on every trip. Kihei has a lot of beaches and market places to shop. We loved our stay in Maui and would recommend this cottage to family and friends. We liked that there was no cable/local TV access (kept us off couch) , internet access worked great to update us on weather and social media. Grace Cottage met all our expectations and there we not surprises, which is always a plus. Thanks Christine!!
