Imagine two charming 1940s beach cottages for rent on Maui. One is a traditional Hawaiian plantation cottage, the other a stone carriage house. Both are surrounded by a landscape of tropical plants, ancient trees, and winding paths, steps from the beach and the boho town of Paia on Maui’s laid-back, virtually-untouched northern coast.
Welcome to Maui Beach Cottage, owned by two fashion industry veterans, recently restored to its laid-back Hawaiian charm. Join us for a walk through the monkeypod trees and lounge with us on the screened porch (and check out the interiors of the Beach House over on Remodelista):
