About the property

2 Bdrm / Sleeps 4-5 / Steps To Keawakapu Beach / Rent 2 Cottages - Room For 10

Two restored cottages just steps to Maui's Keawakapu Beach (literally 1-minute walk on paved sidewalk, no car needed) are now available as permitted vacation rentals. (VRBO#736502 & VRBO#785888) Steps from the best sandy swim beach, Maui Mango Cottages offer a local experience for visitors who want privacy and space adjacent to Wailea Resort amenities including restaurants, golf, spas, shopping and a 3-mile-loop beach walking path. The island-style beach cottages sit on the border of Wailea and Kihei offering the best of both experiences. Mature mango trees have provided shade and fruit to the landscaped acre of land for more than half a century as the cottages were some of the first dwellings in south Maui. Enjoy space for your entire family or party up to 10 when you rent both cottages.

Window A/C units throughout, all the amenities of home with island inspiration -relaxing lanai, kitchen stocked with all the utensils and dishes, and mango trees providing shade and mangos for breakfast in season. The cottage is one of two houses on the 1-acre property with a large landscaped yard and parking. Beach chairs and boogie boards are provided and carried easily down the sidewalk the short 1-minute walk to the beach.

We invite you to enjoy our corner of paradise where sunshine meets the sand and surf, and where you are sure to create lifetime memories.

About Charlie and Yvonne

We have lived on Maui for more than 20 years and were married on Wailea Beach 17 years ago. The island is our home, and we are raising our family in this idyllic place. Yvonne has spent her entire adult life working at 5 star resort hotels on Maui and knows a thing or two about the hospitality industry on Maui. We own and manage the Maui Mango Cottages and live nearby allowing us to provide you with first hand knowledge of our island as locals that live, work and play here, and assistance should you need anything during your visit. Charlie and Yvonne are both happy to give you tips on our favorite spots. Please let use know if you have any questions about our vacation cottages. We hope to welcome you to our corner of paradise.

Warmest aloha,

Charlie and Yvonne

Why Charlie and Yvonne chose Kihei

Location. Location. Location.

What makes this house unique

The location of our Maui Mango Cottages is unique. Situated on nearly an acre of land dotted with mature mango trees and accessible front door parking, guests are only steps away from pristine Keawakapu Beach. You won't have to drive to the beach and can carry a small beach chair and cooler easily across the street for a day in the sun or toast the sunset with a glass of wine and an ocean swim.

Often considered Maui's best beach, Keawakapu is a long sandy beach perfect for popular ocean activities such as swimming, snorkeling, stand up paddling, boogie boarding, and even surfing on occasion.

Enjoy our beach chairs and boogie boards complimentary during your stay.

Ideal location, peaceful, clean and spacious

  • 5 of 5

After years of staying at resorts in the islands while attending conferences, this was our first vacation rental. There is no going back to hotels for us after this ideally located and value-packed cottage! We had everything we needed to enjoy our week with our 13 year old daughter. The beaches across the street were among the best we've experienced in all the islands. The cottage was clean, spacious, and incredibly comfortable. We loved the outdoor shower and the chance to stay connected to the natural beauty at all times of the day. We slept well and reveled in the morning bird song when we awoke. We look forward to returning next year and extending our stay a few days more!

Owner's Response: Aloha Kristin, I'm delighted to read of your wonderful experience in our Maui Mango Cottage #1. It's important that our guests feel comfortable and well cared for during their visit. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed Keawakapu Beach - just a short 1-minute walk across the street - and the enclosed, private outdoor shower, which has become a favorite of all of our guests. We look forward to your return next year. Warmest aloha, Yvonne

OWNER DID NOT PROVIDE ACCESS TO HOUSE TILL 3RD DAY; otherwise satisfied with rental.

  • 1 of 5

The most important reason why this is a one-star rating is because despite 10+ attempts trying to reach the owners by text, phone, and email before arriving at the house, I did not establish contact until the 3rd day on the island. It was only by a stroke of luck and a helpful neighbor that I got in the house. Our family of 5 would have been stranded on the island without a place to stay. TOTALLY UNACCEPTIBLE! (Tip to future renters: the code to the house is the last 4 digits of the renter's phone number.)

It was very upsetting and disturbing when you're already on your way but you don't know if you'd have a place to stay. That was a horrible start to my vacation. Thankfully a neighbor told me how their door code relates to their phone number, which helped us figure out ours. After several more attempts calling the owners, I finally reached them on our 3rd day in the house.


Now, more about the house.


I can't speak highly enough of the location. Look at the map. I couldn't have asked for better.

The back yard is nice and shady.

The owners let us stay late on the last day to catch our late flight.

Beach chairs, sand toys, beach towels, beach umbrella were available (though the umbrella was partially broken).

Nice and clean interior with cool tile floor.

Outdoor shower is cool, if you're into it. No shower inside.

Big outdoor grill; however 1 of the 3 burners didn't work.


For a rental for 5, it only has an outdoor table on the deck for 2. That seems like an easy purchase that the owners didn't make.

No AC in the small bedroom with the two twin beds. No closet in that bedroom either.

The owners didn't leave any condiments or spices left behind from previous renters. We're used to seeing these from previous rentals. The fridge and cupboards were bare except for pots, pans, plates, cups, utensils, etc. So buy your own ketchup.

No rice cooker.

No filtered water. Fridge has no water dispenser.

No indoor shower if you don't like the outdoor one.

Beds and furniture are of basic quality.

Need cushions on the dining room bench.

Owner's Response: Wow! After 24 straight 5 star ratings there is a 1 star rating. To be clear, the 1 star rating is not for the house/accommodations (the traveler gave 4 stars for that) but instead the 1 star is for a miscommunication problem between guest and owner. This guest was inside the house within 5 minutes of arrival to the property. Apparently the guest was calling/texting an incorrect phone number (for 3 days according to the review) and misinterpreted that as owners unresponsive (which generated the 1 star rating). Our standard policy is to provide the access code to the house information days before arrival but apparently the traveler misplaced that information. We are happy to know the guest enjoyed the accommodations.

Wonderful cottage for our family

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for 5 adults and our grandson. Clean neat and tidy (key criteria for my wife). The kitchen was well stocked. The king bed in the master bedroom was great. The air conditioning was very nice to have. We spent lots of time on the deck and in the grass in the back yard - morning coffees, fresh cinnamon buns from the oven, evening drinks.

The neighbourhood is very quiet. It was so peaceful.

Access to the beach is great. A very easy walk to a mile long beach that is quiet. Thoroughly enjoyed long walks with our grandson in the stroller and yet so close to our cottage.

Yvonne was very helpful in ensuring we had a few things for our 10 month old grandson. Thanks Yvonne.

Comfy cottage so close to the best beaches

  • 5 of 5

Mango cottage is a lovely holiday home with all the mod cons and essential amenities that you need for a great beach holiday. Central to both Kihei and Wailea beaches, quiet and private, it makes a great alternative to all those condos. The outdoor shower is awesome!

All the local beaches are excellent, although not great snorkelling during winter. Take the chance to snorkel Molokino, and we had a great trip with Redline Rafts. Hearing the whales calling when under water is pretty cool.

Charlie and Yvonne were really helpful and when needed to fix an annoying smoke alarm, were there within the hour on a Sunday morning. Service!

We would love to stay here again if lucky enough to visit Maui again. Mahalo!

Perfection in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cottage! Comfortable, cute, and clean! The location is perfect, just far enough removed from the hustle and bustle, and still convenient. We loved hearing the ocean waves crash from the cottage. The lanai and landscaped yard are gorgeous and made morning coffee so relaxing. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place!!!
