This accommodation is the second, and more recent, of our two luxury vacation cottages and bears the name of the property, "The Aloha Cottage". With a unique octagonal design and zen inspired architecture, this one-of-a-kind Maui guest house is situated in a gorgeous, tropical Hawaiian setting
Perched atop the highest spot on the property and surrounded in the back with giant Eucalyptus trees, it boasts sweeping views from its large, covered patio/lanai. This inviting and elegant vacation cottage was designed for comfort, style, charm and seclusion. It boasts meticulous landscaping with an array of lush, tropical foliage and trees. This cottage is exactly what one would dream a luxury tropical guest house to be.
As unique inside as it is outside, the Aloha Cottage boasts a pyramid-shaped skylight at the apex of the eight-sided, vaulted ceiling. You can lay on the bed at night and gaze up at the stars through this unique architectural feature. Intricately carved pieces, crafted by artisans in Bali, add a stunning touch to this Hawaiian guest house. A combination of recessed lighting and wall sconces, each with dimmer controls, allows you to adjust the ambience within this well-planned space.
The spacious living area is enhanced by 14 foot tall open-beam ceilings. The cottage's terra cotta floors feature built-in radiant heat for added comfort. The design of the main-room, with its "living in the round", is so unique! One section offers an Asian-style sit-on-the-floor dining space with custom-built table for two, while another is dedicated to a cozy lounge area. There is a large wall-mounted flat screen TV and a stereo in the built-in wall cabinet. And finally, at the center of this amazing space, there is a king-size custom-crafted platform bed adorned with luxurious bedding.
The kitchen is something any chef, or foodie, would fall in love with. It features gorgeous granite counter tops, a full-size refrigerator/freezer and a full-size, four-burner gas stove and oven. There is a stainless steel sink in front of a large 3-panel bay-window that looks out on to the bamboo garden. This kitchen is enhanced by a compliment of cabinets made of solid wood and hand-carved Teak wood drawer fronts. It is fully-equipped and stocked with everything any cook would desire.
The bathroom space has been lavished in luxury and boasts a custom-built, six-foot teak vanity with double ceramic sinks. Above the sinks is a large vanity mirror framed by an ornately hand-carved, hand-painted, Balinese teak wood sculpture. And these are just a few of the features that depict the true attention to detail that was invested in every facet of the Aloha Cottage. For privacy, there is an added smaller room that is separated by pocket doors. This is where the marble shower, featuring wonderful dual-head Kohler fixtures, and the toilet are located.
Large sliding glass doors lead out to the covered, 448 sq. ft. patio/lanai. Magnificent teak wood carvings adorn the outer deck walls as well as the brackets of each porch post. Because Aloha Cottage is uniquely situated atop a bluff, the porch/lanai assures guests complete privacy while still affording sweeping vistas of the forest and property below. Guests can enjoy a hot soak in the spa tub (made for two), lay back on a chaise lounge and take an afternoon nap, or simply listen to the birds singing while enjoying the gentle, cool breezes that make Upcountry Maui life so pleasant. Additionally, guests can dine al fresco at the cafe-style table.
The experience begins as you leave the town of Makawao and head skyward, up the mountain, for approximately 3 miles on Olinda Road. You'll start to relax and unwind as you pass rolling pastures with goats, cows and horses. You may even see a few of the local Axis deer peacefully grazing. This is where the beauty and splendor of Upcountry Maui truly begins! When you make the turn, off Olinda Road, and into the entrance of Aloha Cottage, you'll realize that you've come to a very special place. The landscaping is tamed but slightly wild and there is vibrant colors everywhere you look.
From the long driveway that leads you into the rolling, manicured lawns and exotic botanicals, the Aloha Cottage property offers you total seclusion bathed in breath-taking tropical beauty. Night-blooming Jasmine and giant Eucalyptus trees scent the air and provide round-the-clock aromatherapy. A culmination of two years of total dedication and ingenuity enabled the creation of the amazing rock features and outcroppings that give the grounds character and definition. The plant life is simply amazing with lush greens, vivid purples, fiery reds, vibrant yellows and a rainbow of other colors which bejewel the property. Large, beautifully-matured bamboo groves and incredible ferns all flourish here. Everything was carefully chosen and lovingly planted to give this property an authentic "Native-Hawaiian" feel that provides you with a stunning slice of paradise.
Guests of the Aloha Cottage awake every morning to a soft symphony of tropical birds, the invigorating scent of fresh mountain air and aromas of the multitudes of tropical flowers in bloom. Unmatched beauty - everywhere you look! A symphony of nature is woven into the existing harmonies of Upcountry Maui that enliven the senses. This enchanted "Shangri-La" serves only to enhance the property's unique architectural structures and features.
