About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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, top-of-the-line appliances, full-sized washer & dryer, two-person spa tub, and even a seven-square-foot shower room!

In décor as in all else, the attention to detail at Dolphin Cottage is unsurpassed among West Maui vacation rentals. High-end 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 indulgent comfort with superior craftsmanship. In the Kitchen, koa wood 'Dolphins at Play' by a famous local sculptor hangs from the exposed-beam vaulted ceiling, and in the shower room Hawaiian hula dancers beckon from hand-painted tiles.

A premium queen-sized pillowtop sleigh bed is in the Master Bedroom, a premium queen-sized carved wooden bed is in the Second Bedroom, and 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 bird song filling every room and gentle Trade Winds caressing through quaint wooden-jalousie windows, by day Dolphin Cottage is filled with natural sunlight. The freshly-painted interior enhances the daylight feeling. By night it is awash in romantic moonlight.

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!

I gave 5 stars for all the accuracy, but, the photos and description were good, but the house/property was great! Better than they described!! The house is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. There's no ac, but the breeze is perfect, and there are so many fans - it was never too hot - you truly feel like you are in paradise! It's a short walk across the road to a great beach in Maui. They have all kinds of toys and extra sheets, etc. for the couches/beds. Plenty of space for a large family. We had grandparents and a 2 year old with us and it exceeded everyone's expectation. Thank you for a great stay!

Beautiful property! The pictures don’t do justice to the outside or the scenery around the cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here. The cottage was very spacious and beautifully decorated. It was in a great location. Just down the street from a parking lot to a beautiful beach. It was so convenient to have beach chairs, coolers umbrellas, etc. for us to use. Would recommend for any family 🙂

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at the Dolphin Cottage. It's a lovely home and the online pictures are an accurate depiction of the property. The property & grounds were very nice and relaxing! We appreciated the kitchen being stocked with pots, pans, beautiful plates and everything we needed to make nightly dinners! We had movies to watch and board games to play - thank you! We enjoyed listening to peaceful music that we found we could enjoy with the stereo in the closet!

Just a couple of issues that could be addressed; Many lizards in the house. It wasn't a big deal once the kids got over it but there were probably over 50. The kids were a little freaked out when we found a small millipede inside.... but that didn't stop us from enjoying the home.

I sent an email to the property manager reporting how the dryer wasn't working properly and how one kitchen cabinet was hanging on just one hinge, with no reply.

While we enjoyed having toys like the masks and snorkels available to take to the beach, many of the items were broken and unusable.(Umbrellas & chairs).

We did however, appreciate having beach towels available!

Overall, this is a wonderful place and the owners did a great job attempting to offer everything a family could want or need in a beach vacation home. The little issues we had were small and we were able to really enjoy ourselves at this home despite them.

I would stay there again! Thank you for giving us an opportunity to enjoy your lovely home!
