Iao Valley Inn Cottage feature-2

Iao Valley Inn Cottage

Private, Romantic Mountain-side Cottage and Gazebo for 2

Experience the REAL Maui. Stay in this detached private 1-bedroom cottage in Iao Valley with direct views of the West Maui Mountains and the Wailuku River flowing just steps away. The Iao Valley Inn Cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen, covered lanai, private gazebo and an American Whirlpool Hot Tub for the perfect relaxing getaway on Maui.

Here are some things our previous guests have had to say about Iao Valley Inn:

  • “If you want quiet, authentic Hawaii with a lot of ‘ohana and aloha, this is your place”
  • “Very unique Hawaiian experience”
  • “What a beautiful home with soothing sounds of birds and waterfalls and beautiful views from our bedroom doors and windows”
  • “This has been the perfect home base for exploring and enjoying the many treasures of Maui”
  • “We never felt so at home and well taken care of on our special adventure”


Allow an authentic Hawaii experience on your Maui vacation by settling into this tranquil mountain-side cottage setting. Let the sounds of the river and native Hawaiian birds allow you to fully let go, relax, and feel the real energy of Maui. Use the private gazebo for meditation, yoga, massages, reading, or exercise, cook up your favorite meal with fresh Hawaiian fruit and ingredients in the kitchen, and completely relax in the Hot Tub for two. Honeymooners love the Iao Valley Inn Cottage, and couples trying to get away from the noise of tourist-filled resorts and beaches.
