Quiet and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this little cottage. It's located on the right side of the main freeway about 5-10 minutes away from Lahaina/Front Street, and directly opposite the Old Airport beach at Kaanapali (across the freeway and through the Westin grounds). The cottage is right next the communal car park, making unloading and loading the car SUPER simple. It has everything you need; lovely lanai for the evenings, fully equipped kitchen, loads of towels for endless pool and beach days, the showers are fab and the hot water plentiful. The community itself is a mix of private residences and guest/vacation homes, and as a result we frequently were the only family at the pool - a particular bonus for us as we spent hours there. The kids loved snorkeling and using the complimentary cottage 'noodles' in the pool. The only downside for us was the distance to restaurants, but honestly that was simply because we had to load and unload a baby (+ stroller, carseat and ALL equipment) into the car each time, and it would have been nice to be in walking distance to avoid that. If there wasn't a baby it wouldn't have been an issue. Thank you very much, Bill & Shirley, for the fantastic base for our vacation!!

We thought the accommodations we're nice and they are in a great location close to beach/park.

We were the next people to occupy after roach invasion. Although there were a few instances, we didn't feel that this was a huge problem. The owners were aware and obviously taking care of it. Some people are more

sensitive to this, but as most people who travel to tropical locations know is that this comes with the territory. Just as ants are in the kitchen in the Midwest. All in all it was a great place. We would stay here again.

Our stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We had a private, comfortable cottage that came well equipped for our two and a half week stay. The living room, kitchen and bedrooms were very spacious. We especially enjoyed being on the lanai. The pool was awesome and the other guests were friendly and made our stay even more enjoyable. Parking was right beside the cottage and was very convenient for coming and going and unloading groceries.

Private and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. The location was convenient and so nice to have such easy and close parking. We enjoyed meals in a sitting out on the private lanai. It was perfect for our family.

Great place except the cockroach infestation.

  • 1 of 5

The cottage is in a nice quiet community. It is not touresty at all and equipped for a family well. Upon arriving we did notice overal it was dated and a little rundown but unless you care about that it isn’t a big deal. This cottage would have been perfect if it hadn’t been for the cockroach infestation we discovered on day two, mostly in the kitchen. I had read another older review referencing it and I personally messaged the owners. They assured me it was not a regular problem or an issue at all and that pest control came in a regular basis. The infestation was so bad we didn’t sleep for two nights. At first the owner blamed it on the tropics, the rental car, and other guests luggage. Finally after we sent the 6th video of what was then up to 13 spotted roaches in broad daylight she accepted the cottage had a problem. She maintained throughout our correspondence that it had never happened before. After speaking with pest control we learned 1) roaches that come out in the day and are of all sizes and ages are a tell tail sign of a long term infestation and 2) confirmed that these were German cockroaches not tropical oriental roaches. German roaches live anywhere no matter the weather they live inside and eat food, whereas oriental roaches live outside and eat tropical vegetation. So it was obvious this had been a problem for a while. Either the other guests didn’t notice, didn’t recognize, or never cooked in the kitchen. We spent two days of our coveted vacation time scrambling for another place to stay during peak spring break season. It was very stressful and expensive. Luckily the owners finally conceded and granted us a full refund which is the one thing I can say in their favor. I would not recommend this cottage to anyone. Roaches are dangerous for your health and if you take them home your in trouble because they are impossible to get rid of. I have family who work in the pest control industry and they talk all the time how cockroaches are the worst problem you can have. When we called VRBO to help us they were worthless saying roaches weren’t enough of an issue to rehome us. They defended the owners for having other great reviews and would not help us at all. I will never use VRBO again. I hope this is helpful feedback.

Owner's Response: Well we knew this review was coming and regret it happened. Over the years we have allowed people to stay in our home , this is the first time so many pests have been reported. The previous guest had stayed for 7 days, cooked, and had a great time. They were family members and reported two cockroaches during their stay. These critters along with geckos, and other pests are a little more prevalent in our location due to the isolation from other condos and the amount of vegetation surrounding the property. Terminex had been on property on the 18th of February. Upon receiving the report from the guests we called Terminex and they came out on the third day of the tenants stay. They were gone by then. Some things happen which we can’t control. The best we can do is respond in a timely manner. A full refund was given and hopefully the rest of the trip was not so unsettling for the tenants. It is a great place to stay and MANY folks have and continue to enjoy this property.
