STMP: 20130003. GET/TAT: W73086487-01. The experience starts as you leave Makawao town to head approximately 3 miles up Olinda Road. You'll start to relax and unwind as you pass huge pastures with goats, cows or horses, and always the greens of upcountry Maui... trees, grass, plants. To complete the nature experience, be sure to watch for deer along the road.
When you turn off of into the driveway for Aloha Cottage, you'll realize that you've come to a very special place. The landscaping is tamed but slightly wild, with lush green everywhere you look. Park at the bottom of the stairs, and head up to the cottage set at the top of the bluff.
Vacation Rental Property
As unique inside as on the outside, the Aloha Cottage boasts a pyramid-shaped skylight at the apex of the eight-sided, vaulted ceiling. One can actually lay back on the bed at night and gaze at the stars through this unique, architectural feature. Beautiful imported carvings, that were specifically designed and crafted by artisans in, appear throughout the cottage. The spacious octagonal 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! At the center of this amazing space, there is a king-size custom-crafted platform bed.
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 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. 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 carvings in teak wood adorn the outer deck walls and even 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. Guests can dine al fresco at the cafe-style table.
