Maui vacation rentals close to white sand beach

Kuau Cove: This beach is a
few minutes from your door

Maui Tradewinds is secluded on two tropical acres, just minutes from sparkling white sand beaches with surfing and snorkeling. Close-by are charming shops and a world-class restaurant voted the best fish house in America in USA Today. Other nearby opportunities include hiking, biking, rainforests, waterfalls, a dormant volcano, horseback riding, golf, and whale watching in season.

Beautiful waterfalls are only a short drive

You can swim in waterfalls only a
few miles away -- we took this photo
driving by one of them.

You are minutes from Hookipa -- considered the premiere windsurfing capital of the world. You're perfectly situated for a day trip along the "jungle road" to Hana, with its bamboo forests and cascading waterfalls.

Rainbow over tropical rainforest

Rainbows Happen!

From your breakfast table, enjoy panoramic vistas from the Pacific Ocean, across the tropical rain-forest to 10,000-ft. summit of Mt. Haleakala. Be enchanted by frequent rainbows as they emerge from the mists of Haiku Valley. This is a place to relax in privacy.

Away from the crowds, you can let your journey unfold at your own pace. Luxuriate with a cool drink in the large cliff-edge spa, or just relax on your private lanai and let the silken tradewinds cool you from the warm, tropical sun. Watch the sunrise over Haleakala and the sunset over the West Maui Mountains.
