Shavon was an extremely gracious and awesome host. She has thought of everything. I am sure she went out of here way to provide coffee for my husband because I was worried about him "waking" up after our first night. She left a wonderful snack package as well. The cottage was wonderful and very very comfortable.
The goats and kitty were so sweet. Nana was adorable
The cottage was wonderful! Views were better than pictures show, the ducks and goats were super fun to have around, and the place was very central, so it was easy to explore the whole island like we did. 10/10 would stay again.
Communication with Shavon was very friendly. The studio was clean and had everything we needed. Especially nice was the electric oven. One minor disadvantage is that you can hear every footstep in the unit above. All in all we can recommend staying there. Nina and Tim
This cottage was amazing. Everything written about it is accurate but when you are there, the cottage/the setting/the everything is better than you could hope for. The cottage was very private, very clean, and very well maintained. It was somehow cozy and spacious at the same time. We found it to be in a great place in Maui: Makawao was cool to explore and it was a short distance to a ton of nature hikes and adventures. There was great animal life (friendly cat and ducks mostly) around the cottage too to always keep us company and entertained :)
Loved it. Would certainly stay there again.
Our stay in Makawao was so wonderful! The directions to the cottage were great and the place was adorable. It's perfect for a quieter, more private getaway and was exactly what we were looking for. The cottage was clean and cozy, and had everything we could have needed plus more - towels, basic toiletries, beach towels, a cooler, some condiments, cooking/kitchen supplies, even a Brita. It was also great to take advantage of the washer and dryer, the grill outside, and the jacuzzi tub! It's a little cooler in upcountry Maui (bring some warmer clothes), and the weather during out stay was particularly cold, but there were plenty of blankets on the insanely comfortable bed and even a little electric heater! We were really impressed by how well-equipped this place was. And the snack basket made us feel so welcome!
The location is conveniently close to Pa'ia and the north shore of Maui, so it's a great base for exploring that half of the island. There are some nice places to hike close by, as well. The views even from the cottage were gorgeous, and the surrounding land was very beautiful. We had fun saying hello to the goats too. :) Would definitely come back here if we came to Maui again!
The cottage was just as pictured, very clean, private, and, although we didn't spend a lot of time there, it felt very homey. A thoughtful gift basket of local products was much appreciated - especially since we didn't take enough food with us for our Road to Hana drive!
The bed was SUPER comfortable, and we enjoyed a good soak in the Jacuzzi tub.
The description, pictures, and reviews are all very accurate. We had a great stay and recommend it to anyone looking for a quieter, slightly-off-the-beaten-path home base while in Maui.
The house is under ten minutes driving from Makawao's very cute town center (plus another 2-3 minutes to make your way up the winding dirt driveway). Once there, the view is great, the air is fresh (and cooler--we recommend bringing a light jacket or sweater), the house is stocked (full kitchen, gift basket of goodies, large bathroom, comfortable bed, etc.), and the outdoor cats are plentiful--we saw five during our time there, though the unofficial hostess Nana was definitely the sweetest and most approachable.
This is a great spot if you're planning to head up Haleakala to watch the sunrise. The drive there is fairly short so you can sleep in a bit later! There's also very little light pollution around the house so if you have a clear night, the stargazing is incredible.
Our only minor complaint was that sounds traveled very easily through the ceiling. If anyone is in the second floor unit during your stay, expect to hear every step they take. This was a small annoyance, though, compared to all the things we very much enjoyed.
We only heard from Sharon immediately after making our reservation, but check-in/check-out was simple, and we had no need to get in touch with her during our stay.
We really enjoyed our stay here, the place was just as described and the views were fantastic. Unique and quiet location. Visits with Nana and cat, and Spaceship and Astronaut the dwarf goats were an added treat!
We loved it! Sharon was a wonderful host. Her attention to detail was superb. Having a private retreat away from the hustle and bustle was just what the doctor ordered after arriving from Waikiki. In upcountry Maui, the temperature is a few degrees cooler than at sea level and there is nearly always a pleasant breeze. Truly paradise in paradise. We loved socializing with Nana the cat as we missed our kitties back home. Overall, there is nothing negative I can say about Sharon or this property. We only wish we could give more than 5 stars.
Such a peaceful, cozy place! The perfect spot to get away, our stay was wonderful and I'd go back in a heartbeat. The cottage was clean and inviting, with a very comfortable mattress, and well supplied with anything we could need.
