Lilikoi Lani, Maui's luxury plantation home, is the epitomy of Hawaiian Aloha and old style plantation elegance. It is a permitted, (BBPH 2013/0001, SUP2 2012/0008) five bedroom, three bathroom Maui vacation rental home that is your Hawaii dream come true!

Your vacation rental home is a newer custom built home with all conveniences built to look like an original and elegant Hawaiian plantation home. You will be delighted at the casual elegance, the ease and comfort, the designer furnishings and beauty throughout. Lilikoi Lani is a two acre, gated, lushly landscaped garden that offers total privacy. You will stroll through the tropical gardens picking bananas, guavas, lilikoi, orchids and tropical flowers. You can pick vegetables and herbs from the organic garden; walk down and visit the chickens and collect your own eggs for breakfast for the freshest omelette ever! The huge, wrap-around lanai invites you to relax in the rocking chairs or the porch swing and watch the beauty of nature unfold before you. Intimate, private, romantic, luxurious, serene are some of the words describing this tropical paradise. Some of Maui's best restaurants, activities, shopping, beaches, waterfalls are just a short drive, merely minutes, away. Come and experience the Hawaii you have always dreamed of, Lilikoi Lani Maui!

At Lilikoi Lani you will be greeted every morning by the Maui sun as it rises over Haleakala Crater. You will bathe in the warm breeze, fresh mountain air and walk amongst the lush greens and tropical fruit. At night, the gentle dance of the U'lalena rain will lull you to sleep and transport you to a world of mystical dreams.

Unlike other crowded tourist destinations, you are a priviledged guest at Lilikoi Lani Maui so you will have true privacy. Two acres of botanical gardens are yours to enjoy!

Colleen O'Shea Brady purchased this estate in 2010

Why Colleen O'Shea Brady chose Maui

While we typically stayed at the top resorts in Maui, we soon tired of the crowds and the tourism. We wanted a property with as much luxury and style but with privacy and surrounded by nature instead of tourists. Thus, we purchased Lilikoi Lani, which means Passion(fruit) Heaven.

What makes this estate unique

Lilikoi Lani is a private, exclusive, secure, gated estate nestled among two acres of private botanical gardens. When you are guests at Lilikoi Lani the entire property is yours to enjoy. With hundreds of tropical orchids, fruits and local plants in the two acres, you will find the Hawaii of your dreams.

Outstanding! No detail was overlooked.

  • 5 of 5

We could not possible have asked for more. Colleen was the perfect hostess, the home and grounds are beautifully maintained and the location is second to none! The chef was outstanding, the food rivaled that of any four star restaurant. Every single thing we need ready and waiting, from lovely soaps and shampoo to beach towels to snorkel gear to fully stocked kitchen to…well, everything. Massages on the beautiful front porch. Hammocks in the shade. Everything. The rooms are exquisite, the decor is beautiful without being stuffy, it is totally comfortable. The pictures don't come close to doing it justice. We were able to harvest fresh lettuces for our salads, there were bananas growing outside the kitchen door, we picked pink lemons and made lemonade and there were lilikoi literally falling off the trees into our hands. This is the perfect destination for anyone traveling to Maui. It's close to restaurants, shopping, beaches, galleries, you name it. Thank you Colleen for a perfect vacation getaway! We loved it!

Fabulous Retreat in Bucolic Upcountry Maui

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Lilikoi Lani Maui. Last time we spent four days--this time we stayed for ten. This is a fantastic home. The beds are more comfortable than any hotel; the kitchen is fully equipped with a range, griddle, and a lovely breakfast nook, and there is a nice open living room/dining room. But the highlight of the home is the front porch and grounds. There's no better place to savor your morning coffee! We also enjoyed fresh-picked lilikoi and passion fruit, tangerines, lemons and even a couple of bananas. Plus the exotic chickens add a nice touch, as well as the occasional fresh egg.

The property is clean and well-maintained, the owner is very responsive and available (she lives in a cottage adjacent to the main property). The location is ideal--away from crowds, yet the more popular locations on Maui are easily accessible. Paia and Kahului are both about 15-20 minutes away; Lahaina is a 45 minute drive, as is our favorite beach, Makena (on the south end of Maui). If you come, definitely try the Lahaina Grill and if you're around in the winter be sure to book a whale-watching tour. The Trilogy snorkel tour is also a must, as is a visit to nearby Makawao.

All in all we had a great time in Maui. We're already planning our next trip, and we will definitely be staying at Lilikoi Lani--we can't recommend it highly enough!

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is the best!! it was only a short twenty minute drive from the airport ( the resorts are 45 minutes to one and a half hours from the airport). It was close to Haleakala, close to waterfalls, beautiful beaches, Iao Valley, the Road to Hana. This was the best location ever.

The house was exquisite and we did not want to go home when our stay was over. it was furnished like a designer home and every detail was thought of. The hospitality and feeling of aloha were evident everywhere. they had a welcome gift with local foods, coffee and a beautiful beach sheet for lying on the beach in the warm sun.

The weather was just perfect highs in the 70's in the daytime and lows in the 60's at night. The grounds were a tropical paradise. There were bananas, guavas, lilikoi, avocados and star fruit as well as an organic herb garden! Fresh eggs for. The chickens was an extra bonus!

We feel so,lucky to have found this wonderful estate. I truly felt like we had arrived in paradise. We will return.

We recommend this highly!

Beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday at Colleen's place. The plantation house was beautiful and easily accommodated our family of five, aunt and grandparents. Everyone loved the chickens roaming the yard and the cow and goats next door. It was quiet and very private.

We hired Shauna as our personal chef and she was OUTSTANDING. Truly, a gem. Every meal she made for us was unique and delicious, with lots of local flavor. She herself is so sweet and positive, an easy person to share space with. Hiring her was the best move! It left us free to roam the island all day and come home exhausted to a home-cooked meal.

The weather was unseasonably hot when we visited and the house was rather uncomfortable with no AC, only fans. My husband was so hot that he was rather miserable until the third day, when Colleen kindly bought us a portable AC unit for our room. Future guests might look at the weather report to make sure it's not going to be hot. I believe it's also warmer inland, where this house is located.

Which brings me to location. Potential guests should understand that this property is quite remote - a 25 min drive to the nearest decent beach and more than an hour to many of Maui's prime spots (Haleakula crater, Io Valley, etc). The only thing nearby is a charming small town - but explore that once or twice and your done. Our time was spent alternating between big driving days (to see the sights, scuba dive, etc.) easier half-days at the beach, and hanging at the house. To be honest, I would pick a more centrally-located place If I had it to do over again. Of course then we probably couldn't afford it :)

Other than this, and the heat, the place was just wonderful. Nicely decorated, comfortable beds, gracious host and fantastic personal chef.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jennifer, Your review is the only one out of 27 that is less than five stars. We so love to make you happy and we are sorry that you were unhappy about the unusual weather. If I could control a very unusual July weather week for you, I most certainly would do so! I thank you for the many kind things that you mention in your review. We do hope that you will come visit us again. We are in Upcountry Maui. The island of Maui is made up of numerous micro climates. Typically Upcountry Maui where we are located is ten to fifteen degrees cooler than the rest of the island. We try to control all aspects of our guests stay so that all is wonderful for them. We really care about sharing our wonderful island and pleasing our guests. We are happy when you are happy! We are the most centrally located spot on this island. Maui is a big island and you may be unaware of that since this was your first visit. We are sorry that you did not discover world famous Hookipa Beach which is just a few minutes away. We do hope that you enjoyed the guest pass to The Maui Country Club that we provided to you and the gift of your free luau ticket for your Birthday. Please come visit us again. We will be happy to offer you our returning guest " friends and family" discount. We would love to have your lovely family as our guests again!!
