Marianne and Gary,
How could a place be any nicer? The cottage was such a peaceful, home base for our travels and explorations of beautiful Maui. The geckos clicked and the breezes blew. We appreciated the extras in the kitchen, no need to buy staples like tinfoil or salt and pepper.
We visited Mana Foods at Paia, General Foods at Makawao, Baldwin Beach where we saw kids spearfishing in the ocean.
We had alternating sun and warm rain while we sat on the beach and read.
We drove to Lahaina, walked and shopped. Little old ladies sold us a lovely $5 lei at Baldwin House. We ate at Nohu restaurant (right on the beach) and watched paragliders while sipping Mai Tai’s and feasting on freshly caught fish. Yum!
The next day we went to Maui Spa Retreat and then ventured out on the Hana road. We swam in a secluded little grotto with a waterfall where little fish nibbled at our toes.
We went to Ho’okipi Beach the next day where we watched surfers and windsurfers. We watched sea turtles lolling in the surf and sunbathing on the beach. Mexican food at Polli’s restaurant was our evening meal.
We ate at Haliimaile General Store, Mama’s Fishhouse, and Marketfresh Bistro. All of them superb!
Everything we did and ate was wonderful!
Mahalo for a wonderful honeymoon retreat. We will always remember our stay here.

We booked a room with Marianne and Gary originally, but they had a cancellation to the cottage, so they were very nice to offer us a discount on the stay at the cottage. The cottage has a large king size bed. It was very comfortable. The cottage is spacious and we were glad to have a kitchen to ourselves. The kitchen is functional, and has lots of supply, i.e. spices, soft drinks, sauces... Marianne and Gary are very nice. My friend got bad sun burn, and Marianne gave us fresh aloe to put on from her garden. The location of the cottage allows us to travel to everywhere in one day. We enjoyed our stay at this place!
Great comfortable king bed and strong hot water pressure for your shower. Wonderful hosts, explain the island and what not to miss.
Our flight was late coming in, and the pizza and salad they fed us was a godsend. The quaint cottage was clean, had everything and was in a terrific location.
Thank you Gary and Marianne
We highly recommend the Maui Jewel Cottage for your trip to Maui. Gary and Marianne are wonderful hosts. The kitchen even had a blender for smoothies! It is a peaceful retreat.
The reservation was canceled 86 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Gary and Marianne were really nice and helpful. The cottage is nice, clean and roomy. The kitchen was well equipped and they even have a washer/dryer outside to use. I also appreciated the beach chairs, towels and else they provide. The neighborhood is good to explore every corner of the island.
We believe that Gary and Marianne were sent to us by the angels above. We feel so blessed to have met them and been able to stay in their cottage. It was so much better than we could have dreamed and they went way above and beyond what a normal host would do. Their style and taste are excellent and the way they have that cottage set up is so beautiful and peaceful. There was no down side to our stay except that we had to leave. Honestly, if we could make that place our home and have Marianne and Gary as our neighbors, we would do it in a second. Our trip was inspiring, healing, and just what we needed.
Love love love!
We had a wonderful stay here. Marianne and Gary are such accommodating, generous hosts. We arrived very late, and were surprised to find that Gary had stayed up to see us in and ensure we were settled. We also enjoyed chatting a bit with Marianne in the mornings as we had coffee on the patio. She gave us veggies from their garden and lots of tips about the area.
Overall, we were really satisfied with the cottage. The bed is comfortable and the unit is nicely appointed. We found that the location was perfect for exploring Maui's upcountry, particularly Makawao, Paia and Haiku. We definitely recommend this cottage, and Gary and Marianne as hosts.
We had such a wonderful time in Maui staying at Gary and Marianne's Jewel Cottage. Their place was ideally located for us and we enjoyed ending our fun filed days in Maui at the cottage. It was nice to come "home" to a quiet and peaceful place a little off the beaten path. They were both very kind and sweet and provided everything we needed during our stay there. Beach chairs, coolers, plenty of water, and loads of tips on entertainment options during our stay there. We are sending our family there for a trip they are planning soon. We hope to get back to Maui again soon as we had such a magical time there. We will definitely be looking up Gary and Marianne again!
We stayed here in the end of March. The cottage was great and exactly as expected from the photos. It is located in a quiet area, excellent to relax or as a base camp to the many adventures and areas of Maui. Great place to stay for a early morning start if you plan to head out to the volcano or Hana. The hosts were excellent, very friendly and helpful. They keep the place real clean and stocked with the many things you could use during your island stay. I hope to stay here again.
