Guests Comments

We had a wonderful time, and truly felt comfortable in the Menehune Cottage...our little home away from home!
Margaret was great and very friendly.
We would definitely stay there again, and recommend it to our friends. Thank you so much!


.... we absolutely loved the Menehune Garden Cottage and have already told all family and friends who may visit maui's north shore to check out your website. Thanks again!

We had a wonderful time in Maui and were very pleased with our accommodations at the Menehune Cottage. It was perfectly located in the North Shore and very private and surrounded by great vegetation. Our interactions with our hosts really added to our stay too. It was hard to leave and we'll definitely be back!
Thanks for the great stay!


We had a wonderful time at Menahune Cottage! It was charming, clean and comfortable. We particularly liked the outdoor shower. We met the owners, who live next door, and had a delightful time with them, .... We'd certainly consider booking again, should we ever find ourselves back in Maui.
Thanks for everything!
