About Joe & Mary Ann

Established in 2011 upon obtaining the operating license from Maui County, we offer our former personal guest house to the public, to enjoy a very private home and experience living like a local in a peaceful residential area of this spectacular island of Maui, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist resorts.

Joe & Mary Ann purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Joe & Mary Ann chose Kihei

Unlike condos, duplexes or private homes in close fitting residential subdivisions, you will find yourself secluded in the middle of your own quarter acre of open landscaped privacy well off the street with no view of someone's window directly opposite your windows or lanai, no person looking into your front entrance from a common walkway, no one on the other side of a wall, above your ceiling or below your floor to disturb you, your own private driveway entrance and shaded parking. Home base during your vacation will really feel like your very island home away from home.

What makes this cottage unique

Only 1 mile to Keawakapu Beach, one of the best on Maui. We are conveniently located next to and above the Wailea Resort within 500 feet distance of its world class restaurants, shopping, golfing and beaches, all the enjoyment of the Resort's offerings without the price. Truly an affordable island getaway in paradise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at the Rainbow Cottage for 5 whole weeks and enjoyed every moment of it. From the first day, I felt like I was on sacred ground. There was a sense of peace and well being. It's a very ascetically appealing cottage, and I loved the sense of being in a tree house, waking to the dawn chorus of birds. The Jacuzzi tub with jets was quite relaxing after a day at the beach. Having a computer was handy and we used it a lot.

Amazing, Private, Quiet

  • 5 of 5

My Girlfriend and I stayed here for almost 2 weeks. Absolutely wonderful place, it was so private, quiet, romantic. Well stocked with everything you need for outdoor activities. There was a nice selection of (mostly local) snacks and drinks to get you through your first day. It is extremely well maintained, and was super clean when we arrived. The bed was huge and super comfy, all of the furniture and appliances first rate. If we ever get the opportunity we'll be back!

Fantastic location and value with unbeatable hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found the Rainbow Deluxe cottage after another booking we had made (with someone else) fell through. It really was a blessing in disguise though, because we absolutely loved our stay at the cottage and we can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return!! Jo & Mary Ann's place is in a quiet, secluded location that's much more Wailea than Kihei. Surrounded by gorgeous trees that shade the cottage and separate you from the other home located on the property nearby. You really feel you are in your own little world tucked away inside the cottage. Everything we needed was there--dishes, snorkel/beach gear, etc and it was decorated beautifully. We were actually coming for our wedding and there was a beautiful basket of welcome goodies waiting for us upon our arrival which was exactly what we needed after arriving after a long flight 5 months pregnant and stressed to get everything in order for the following day! The bed was comfortable and the bathroom shower had excellent pressure. Loved that we could park our rental car under the little car port area also. What really sets this place apart though are the owners--Jo and Mary Ann were so sweet and accommodating of us. Our rental car wouldn't start the morning of the wedding and Jo was nice enough to drive me to my 6:30am hair appointment and my husband to go pick up another rental!! Really we would've been lost without these guys. We look forward to coming back after our little one arrives and are thrilled there's a whole other bedroom/bathroom available so we can bring another couple along with us!! Fantastic value and excellent customer service! Thank you guys so much for everything!!

Easily the BEST rental in 18 years

  • 5 of 5

I'm not exaggerating in my title. I've visited all of the islands, multiple times over the years, and the owners of Rainbow Deluxe have really given a lot of thought to guest needs, comfort, and experience. I no longer need to search for a place to stay on Maui, I'd prefer to stay at Rainbow Deluxe.

Starting with the beautiful grounds, the unit itself is well appointed and just enough 'up the hill' to enjoy the peaceful, neighborhood location. The 'thoughtfulness' starts with a wonderful basket of goodies, designed to get a stay started without a trip to the store, on the day of arrival. There were sufficient supplies in the bathrooms, for the two of us, for the length of our stay. The choices of towels, pillows, bedding, kitchen and beach supplies were all high quality and provided. This tea drinker was VERY happy with the hot water tap!!

We began and ended each day of adventure on the generous lanai, the west view affording a sunset view over the ocean. We didn't experience a rainy day, but there's a retractable cover, which would have kept the lanai useable had there been. Lots of motion lights keep paths lit when you're on them, but allow darkness to surround for stargazing at night.

The location is just above Wailea and Kihei, affording easy access to beaches/services there, while allowing simple access to other points of the island. For me, the Kihei/Wailea area is a perfect 'middle spot' for day trips to anywhere on the island, and we took advantage.

Best hidden gem in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving at Rainbow Deluxe we were exhausted. We were so delighted to open the fridge and see essentials already for us! This condo is clean and centrally located. From the patio you can see the ocean. The bed are so comfy and we love waking up and seeing the ocean out the bedroom window. Our family enjoyed the convenience of having all the beach supplies available to us. We love staying here and can't wait to come back. If we needed anything (at all) Joe and Mary Ann where so gracious to help.

Home away from home- - -but better because it's in Maui!!!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is packed full of extras: upon arrival you will find a food basket full of goodies, all the beach necessities you could need, a well-stocked kitchen and wonderfully comfortable beds and pillows!

We (three adults) were worried about the small size of the cottage but the attention to detail and well-planned use of space more than made up for the lack of square footage. It actually gave me many ideas to incorporate into my own future small home.

The location is perfect for those not looking to stay in a resort area. Many great beaches and restaurants are literally minutes away in Kihei and Wailea. Lahaina is an easy and scenic 40 minutes away and the airport is less than a half an hour.

I could go on and on so I'll just say one last thing- - -choose the Rainbow Deluxe cottage, you will not be disappointed!
