Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Pono Plantation. Even though the house wasn't air conditioned, there are plenty of fans and with the windows opened, it stays very comfortable.

Kathryn was the perfect hostess. She kept in contact to make sure everything was ok.

It is located conveniently north of the shopping area of Lahaina, about a 15 minute drive. There's a great beach across the highway with parking or a short walk.

We would definitely rent again.

Spring Break Fun In Kaanapali

  • 5 of 5

We spent 11 wonderful days at The Pono Plantation Cottage for a family reunion in March of 2016. It was the perfect location for our two families to be together but large enough for all of us to have private time as well. Kathy was wonderful about meeting our needs, and giving us lots of advise about the island of Maui and things to enjoy with our kids. The location was great to explore Lahaina and and all the wonderful beaches. The Cottage was well stocked with everything we needed including beach chairs, towels and fun toys for the kids in our group to use.

We had a problem with the electricity and as soon as we let Kathy know and she dealt with it immediately and and made sure it didn't impact our holiday. The front bedroom of the Cottage has some road noise so I would recommend ear plugs, but The Cottage at Pono Plantation was great for our trip and we would gladly stay there again! It was a great place for our family to relax together and have fun!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five, and we were in Maui for a family reunion. The cottage worked out perfectly for us. There was plenty of room, and the cottage had all of the amenities. Because the other people at the reunion were staying in condos in hotels, we held many of the family dinners at the cottage, and it had plenty of room for 20 of us to mingle and catch up with one another. The location in Kaanapali was close to many beaches and some excellent snorkeling.

Owner Katherine was very friendly and helpful. She put us in touch with local people for bike riding adventures, and had great advice on getting around the island, booking a Luau, etc. When we arrived, Katherine met us at the house, showed us around, and made us feel welcome. She let us know she was available if we had any questions.

So in summary, the Pono Plantation Cottage came as advertised, and met all of our needs. I would wholeheartedly recommend it as an excellent place for a family to stay when on the lovely island of Maui!

Pono Plantation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kathy's cottage for 7 nights arriving on Halloween evening. Our flight was delayed but Kathy was so accomadating for us. She arranged for our late arrival and called first thing the next morning to see if everything was ok. The plantation style cottage and open floor plan were perfect for our family. Everyone could get together and have plenty of room (there were 4 adults and 2 small children) and with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths we all could have our personal space as well. The house was very clean and everything we needed was there, including beach toys.

The location was great (just a short walk across the street to the beach) and the property was very well maintained. We enjoyed the two swimming pools and it was great to have a fenced back yard for the kids.

Kathy was very helpful. She made suggestions on where to eat (Slappys was great) and she called several times to see that all was well. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to have lots of room and wanting to be in the Kaanapali area. I would certainly stay there again and am looking forward to our next visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. 4 adults and 2 kids under 3

Fit no problem. The owner was courteous and gracious and wanted to make sure we felt at home. The only downside was the noise from the highway. But it was awesome being minutes from the beach and having the huge backyard for the kids to play in. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

spacious and close to the beach

  • 3 of 5

This is a large unit that is close to the beach, which is directly across the highway from The International Colony Club. The road noise is very loud as it is situated at the traffic light at Honoapiilani Hwy and Puukolii road, especially in the third bedroom, my daughter ended up sleeping on the couch.

We are still waiting on our security deposit back after six months.
