Welcome to a Cutting Edge Maui Beach House that blends its Original 1940’s Plantation Style Charm with a Refined Contemporary Design and Custom Finishes. Located just steps from sandy beaches on the desirable oceanfront Ili’ili Road, this romantic property mixes art, a variety of local woods, glass and natural sunlight, that quite simply, just make you feel good. The Plantation Beach House was inspired by the tropical Maui landscape and historic surf culture. Personifying Kihei’s laid back beach-town community, the complete redesign of the original 1940s-era house has transformed the Plantation Beach House in to a contemporary boutique vacation rental that gives guests an unparalleled visit to Maui.
Surrounded by lush, manicured landscaping, plumeria trees and fruit trees, each room has a framed garden view. Open sets of French doors and venture out into the private backyard or relax and barbecue on the dining lanai that seats six guests. Inside, the high-vaulted ceilings and large Plantation style windows create sun-filled spaces. The 12,000 square foot lot is expansive creating an intimate family oasis or allowing the entertainment of large groups. Clearly, this home is the epitome of indoor/outdoor living with three spacious lanais offering multiple lounging areas.
The fully equipped kitchen features brand new stainless steel appliances. A large kitchen island counter top and high stools are meant for casual dining. The open floor plan makes social gatherings more relaxed and homely. A custom made dining table made from local Monkeypod wood seats six. Three ensuite bedrooms feature sliding barn doors separating bedrooms from spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers. The master bedroom offers double French doors that open to the back lanai with two rocking chairs, overlooking the private back yard.
The home offers comfortable accommodations for up to eight guests. The master bedroom has a single king bed that can also be reconfigured in to double twin beds upon request. Two more ensuite bedrooms each have a queen bed. A queen size sofa bed in the living room comfortably sleeps two adults and requires an additional guests fee. The furniture, fabrics and lighting fixtures lend to the authentic feel of a modernized Plantation House with its original 1940’s Hawaiian charm.
The Plantation Beach House’s prime location is conveniently tucked across the street from the beach and popular surf spot known as The Cove. Ideal for the active and adventurous traveler, the property front gate is just down the street from Charley Young Beach – a sandy beach favored for sun bathing, swimming, snorkeling, diving, kayaking and whale watching. Grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, shopping plazas, nightlife, and a farmer’s market are all within walking distance. Guests of all ages can enjoy Kalama Park’s running paths, public tennis courts, beach volleyball courts, outdoor rolling skating rink, basket ball courts, skate park and jumbo playground located at the end of street.
I would recommend Villas By The Cove for wedding parties or small or medium wedding groups, even if you don't have the ceremony or reception on site. In case you do want one on site, there is a deck that can accommodate a small or medium group. I had approximately 40 people in my wedding group and this was the only place on Maui that would fit us all. We ended up renting the entire property and everyone was very happy because we were all together under one roof while also maintaining some privacy in each unit. Our group stayed for 5 nights and had a great time. The property is conveniently located within walking distance from grocery and other shopping like Foodland, Longs, and Kalama Village. There are several close restaurants and beaches and nearby paddleboard/surfboard rentals and lessons. It's a 10-minute drive to Wailea and 25-min drive to Kahului. The on-site parking was sufficient to hold our two 15-person vans and 2 sedans, and there was usually plenty street parking around the property. You get what you see on their website, including amenities such as laundry, equipped kitchen, outdoor grill and beach chairs and towels. Overall we had an amazing stay at Villas By The Cove. Chelsea the property manager was super helpful and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay.
The Villas By The Cove was the perfect location for my family to stay during our destination wedding. The layout of the property is ideal for large groups that still want personal space but want to spend time together during their stay. We had 31 guests throughout all four units and we all loved it. Everyone was impressed with the beautiful decor and landscaping. The A/C was very powerful and worked perfectly. The insulation is fantastic and if one group was up talking late at night, no one in the other units had any idea. The property manager, Chelsea, was so sweet and lovely to work with. She was attentive and on the first day we had a slight issue that she was able to fix immediately. It was very affordable compared to other options and definitely worth every penny. We had guests of all ages and everyone had an amazing stay. And don't forget the yoga room! We had Chelsea come on two mornings for a yoga class and that is an awesome amenity. You will not be disappointed if you book a stay at The Villas By The Cove. I hope to be back in the future!
Villas By The Cove was just as good as the pictures! Our family stayed her for our wedding and we also had our reception on the outside deck. The property was beautiful, the pool area was a great central location and the owners/managers were very nice and easy to work with!
Great location and staff was wonderful to deal with. Will definitely stay again and would recommend. Note: We did not have the wedding at this venue, but stayed here with the majority of our guests.
