Unique Dolphin Cottage at Kaanapali!

Cottage with patio, near Whalers Village
The International Colony Club (ICC) is nestled behind the tracks of the scenic Sugar Cane Train on 10 acres in the beautiful Kaanapali Beach Resort area--Maui's #1 vacation destination! There are 42 individual cottages situated on quiet, meticulously landscaped grounds. World-famous Kaanapali Beach (consistently ranked among the top five beaches in the world by publications like Conde Nast Traveler Magazine) is just across the road and less than a five-minute walk from ICC.

A quintessential island cottage, Dolphin Cottage at Kaanapali offers a one-of-a-kind, artistic, and all natural environment that takes one back to old time Maui plantation style living. The custom-designed, two bedroom, two bathroom cottage has ocean views and more than 1,850 square feet of living space. Its steeply pitched roofline allows for lofty exposed-beam ceilings, while its plank siding and wooden louvered windows complete the charming cottage setting. Subtle details include antique wrought iron and brass light fixtures, built-in leather furniture, eight ceiling fans, seven sky lights, full-sized washer & dryer, two-person spa tub, and even a forty-square-foot shower room!

In décor furnishings and amenities are featured against a cheerful, relaxed, island-style backdrop. Over the Lanai entrance a world-class surfboard by a renowned Maui shaper welcomes guests. The pop of colorful art by local artists brightens the walls, natural fiber jute rugs are scattered about on concrete floors, and furnishings combine comfort with craftsmanship. In the Kitchen, koa wood 'Dolphins at Play' by a famous local sculptor hangs from the exposed-beam vaulted ceiling.

A queen-sized sleigh bed is in the Master. Queen sized carved wooden bed is in the Second Bedroom, a queen-sized sleeper sofa is in the Living Area. Dolphin Cottage comfortably accommodates up to six guests. A 42' HDTV with DVD player and video library, as well as a central sound system bring modern comfort to your stay in paradise.

Surrounded by tropical foliage, with trade winds flowing through wooden-jalousie windows, by day Dolphin Cottage is filled with natural sunlight.

Please be advised that there are some drawbacks to this lush, natural, tropical environment. We're in the tropics where friendly lizards and insects thrive, and this is an open-air plantation cottage. Somehow, lizards and insects seem to find their way inside even though the cottage is fully screened and pest-control measures for unsavory critters are in place. It's all part of the Hawai`i experience!

Come to experience what it feels like to live at one with Hawaii's gorgeous natural environment. Visit Dolphin Cottage at Kaanapali!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location, much more fun than a hotel
My husband and I shared this location with my best friend and her husband. The decor and layout were very cool and unique. The communication was great, all via email and a guidebook in the rental. This is an open air home but there are multiple fans for circulation and it never got above 80 degrees in the evening. It seemed like pest control sprayed the day before we arrived because dead bugs kept popping up. But we were OK with it since we'd rather see dead bugs than live ones. We understand how tough it is to keep bugs out of an open air home and we loved the ocean breeze, so this didn't bother us. The location is near many great restaurants, a mall, and a snorkel rental store. It's also about 20 minutes from amazing hiking at Dragon's Tooth and a fantastic snorkel spot, Honolua Bay. We loved it and would stay here again! Thanks :)

4/5 Good

Lovely and unique cottage
We really enjoyed our stay in Dolphin Cottage. The cottage itself is very unique and the setting and location were perfect for our needs. Easy walking distance to a great beach with good snorkelling. We found most basic needs were an easy 5 minute drive and many good restaurants within a 10 minute drive. The grounds of the International Colony Club are lovely and we really enjoyed the pool area. The cottage is decorated beautifully and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Josh the property manager was quick to take care of a couple of minor issues and the check in and check out process was seamless. Our only complaint is that there is no outdoor sitting area which made it a bit of a challenge to BBQ and it really would be the perfect home with an outside lanai to enjoy. There is a lanai but it is entirely closed in and we found it really wasn't an area that we wanted to sit in. Thanks again for a lovely week in Maui.

Overall Good
The overall experience was pretty good. Very spacious and for the most part clean. Pretty accurate from the photos, close to the pool. Had alot of accommodating things like hair dryer, washer and dryers, full kitchen, beach accessories, ect. The downfalls were as forewarned the bugs. Tiny ants everywhere and a huge centepied in the foyer. Had to wash the bugs out of the tub each each night. No bed bugs or anything like that though so its a normal tropical house environment. There was a random yellow mystery stain on one of the white bed blankets not sure what it was.. we just didnt use it. The beds were made nicely though and seemed freshly made. The Jacuzzi worked just fine, there is a chip of the plastic on one of the jets but doesnt prevent it from working, very big and nice for 2 people to gaze up out of the window above it, especially when it rained. The shower was really nice and spacious. The pool was just a mini walk from our place, looked nice but we never used it, we were to busy. It got pretty muggy, even with the fans on, there is no AC as posted, I'm not one who can stand the heat but it was okay. The biggest issue for us was parking, there was not enough space for guests. We had to park further away one night and walk a good distance back to our cottage. At first we made a way to park even so others could still back out but then someone used cones and started to block off space. We just wished there was more parking spaces cause it starts to inconvenience guests. Over all we would recommend staying here. There is alot of room in the house to sprawl out, really close to Lahina and black rock beach, we loved the bathroom and it was pretty uniquely designed, this would be good for couples or small families.
