7 - 14 nights




The Thai Tree House is a charming and romantic Thai-inspired guest house. This is a marvelous accommodation for the nature-lover who enjoys luxury. It boasts a large bamboo-rail deck which looks out onto majestic tall trees and lush green foliage, and is complete with deck loungers. You will find a romantic soaking tub for two people where you can shed the stresses of civilization. This unique vacation cottage is perched atop a forest of Eucalyptus trees and secluded in the privacy of its own bamboo grove. The interior was carefully chosen to provide guests with spacious living with its open-beam vaulted ceilings and open floor plan. The inspirations for The Thai Tree House's architectural design was to replicate the type of fine-lodging one would find along the rivers banks in Thailand.

Centered in the room is a custom-made king-size bed fashioned from cherry wood and adorned with luxurious bedding.  This vacation cottage is outfitted with a complete kitchen offering our guests the option to cook at home. There is a cozy inside dining area which offers a romantic place to enjoy those great meals.  This is a place where you can enjoy comfortable, elegant and laid-back island living.

The experience begins as you leave the town of Makawao and head skywards, 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 that often graze on the slopes of Haleakala. This is where the beauty 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 are vibrant colors everywhere you look.

From the long drive that leads you into the rolling, manicured lawns and exotic plants, the property at Aloha Cottage 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 that will relax and rejuvenate the soul. A culmination of two years of total dedication and ingenuity enabled the creation of amazing rock features and outcroppings that give the grounds character and definition.

Although the property has a definite theme that runs through all the landscaping, each and every section was individually created and designed to truly accent and emphasis all the exotic architecture. Lush greens, vivid purples, fiery reds, vibrant yellows and other colors dot the property. Large, beautifully-matured bamboo thickets and incredible ferns all flourish here. Everything was carefully chosen and lovingly planted to give this property an authentic "Native-Hawaiian" feel. It really is a stunning, tropical paradise!

Please understand that our policies are based on the fact that we have taken your reservation and honor it as a "booking". We do not overbook our cottages and we respect everyone's reservation as a legal and binding contract. In short, it means we have reserved your cottage just for you, for the nights that you have booked.

We strive to provide each of our guests with a cottage that is perfectly prepared for their 3:00 PM arrival. To make this happen, our cleaning staff arrives promptly at 10:00 AM.

NO SMOKING! There is absolutely no smoking allowed in our cottages, on the lanai or anywhere on the property.

Sorry, No Pets. We love animals but we have a strict no pets policy for our cottages.

Maximum occupancy is 2 persons (including any child over 10 years of age).

  • Sorry, no children under age 10 or infants: We love kids! We even have children of our own. It is just the fact that our cottages were never designed or decorated to accommodate young children as occupants.

We pledge to provide tranquility for all people that visit with us, so NO PARTIES or loud music played in our cottages.

Taxes: Our quoted rates do not include Hawaii taxes of 14.42% per night which will be added to your bill. Other terms will be discussed before you finalize your reservation.

Cleaning Fee: We do charge a one-time cleaning fee for all stays of $125 (which is embedded in your security deposit if you make your reservation online). This moderate fee represents only our exact cost for our professional, independently contracted maid service.

Aloha Cottage is a legally, permitted business with Maui County. Our permit number is STMP 20130003.

The County of Maui requires all vacation rentals and B&B's to have permits and the State of Hawaii issues licenses for all bed and breakfasts and vacation rentals. They also require these permit numbers to be displayed on all advertising including web sites and in print. So be sure that you look for the permit number on any Maui accommodation websites and ask any vacation rental or B&B for their permit number before booking. We recommend this so that you ensure your vacation is protected by staying with trusted accommodations that are legally permitted.
