We are a no-smoking facility. Absolutely no smoking, no candle burning inside or outside the unit nor on the property.

The Maui by the Sea cottage is located behind our house, privately nestled amongst a lush tropical vegetation of fruit trees, heliconias and bamboos: far enough from the main house that we all have our privacy and close enough that we are always available for your needs (Directions, info or talk stories).

You can walk down the road (just past 5 houses) to a sweet little white sand beach. From there you can swim, kayak, snorkel, or surf, or just watch the windsurfers going for their daily “fishing trip”, or the local fishermen throwing nets. You can also stay home, come down and enjoy the spectacular view on the ocean side of the property.

Your hosts at the Maui by the Sea cottage: Craig and Valerie Richter

Maui by the Sea Vacation cottage - Craig and ValerieHi, I am Craig: I was born in Seattle and grew up in Spokane, Washington. I loved sports growing-up, especially tennis. I participated in lots of competitions and later became a tennis coach. As a child my parents brought us to Maui several times and eventually I became a Tennis Coach both on Maui and Kauai prior to moving to Hong Kong for 12 years, after which I returned to Maui, met Valerie and have never left. I have been a dedicated tennis coach here on Maui for over 15 years (see my blog).

Bonjour, I am Valerie: I was born and grew up in Paris, France and became a sports photographer, working for a Windsurfing Magazine, Planche Mag, in the 80's. As a Windsurfing Photographer I traveled around the world following the Windsurfing World Cup, but of all the places my work took me, I loved Maui the best and on Maui I finally settled in 1989.

We are active in our church and in studying the Scripture. When we aren't looking after our guests, we love to play tennis, hike, ski and travel (though not very often since we have a hard time leaving Maui), and Valerie loves Watercolor and Pastel painting and still takes lots of photographs.

We hope you will come and join us in our little paradise, Aloha, Craig and Valerie
