Down to earth and set in the authentic Hawaii you knew existed, but had no idea how to find. If you’re looking for an affordable, non-touristy private home, you just found it.

Exceptionally private and clean, the high quality furnishings, linens and kitchen appliances are kept in like-new condition.

The cottage has loads of windows overlooking tropical plants, a heavily producing yummy Avocado tree is next to the kitchen window, coconut, breadfruit, hibiscus and heliconia are also plentiful.

Bedrooms & Bedding
You may be asking yourself, “is it a two-bedroom or a studio?” Originally built as an open studio cottage with a large enclosed lanai, the lanai has just recently been remodeled into a second bedroom.

This is an open floorplan with the master bedroom connected to the main living area. The second bedroom can be closed off from the rest of the house affording privacy to couples traveling together, or especially useful to families who would like to put the kids to sleep early without ending the night for themselves.

Both bedrooms have high-quality queen beds. The Master bed is a Sealy Posturepedic pillowtop. The lanai bedroom has a Simmons Beautyrest pillowtop.

(For spare kids you may have hanging around, there is also a mini-twin futon, a pack-and-play – and oh, and the two sofas are kid sized!)

Dining Area
The pub-style dining table sits in a pocket of windows – a perfect spot to share breakfast to the sounds of songbirds in the morning.

The full kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal, snacks or drinks. High quality Hawaiian-style ceramic dishes, assorted glassware, pots & pans, silverware, etc is all high quality and new. A new blender, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker are among the small appliances. Everything is solid quality and full-sized, not like what you expect in typical vacation condos and hotels.

There is also a reverse osmosis water filter installed at the sink to filter the rainwater supplied tap for clean drinking water.

Bathroom & Shower
The bathroom is simple yet functional. When you’re in here looking for the shower, you’ll find none – but open the door and a path leads out to an awesome outdoor bamboo shower with what we call a “hillbilly hotub” next to the shower, it is a 4? round ~200 gal. soaking tub (larger and much deeper than a standard bath tub.) What a treat!

Warning: After you shower here you’ll never want to shower inside again.

Waipio Bay is a couple miles into the unofficial start of the famous Road to Hana, at the edge of the rainforest. Since Maui is small, and the resort areas are not centrally located, this private and “remote” area is ironically quite central for active people looking to experience the huge variety Maui has to offer.

This location is also a great choice for those who want privacy, serenity and a peaceful place to recharge since it is off the beaten tourist path, and at the end of a private road.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: I'm an author and live in another home on the property. I discovered Maui was my soul's long-lost home in the 90's and whenever we came back home to visit, we found this area to be the best home base for our adventures around the island. When we moved to Maui in 2004, we spent three years searching for the perfect place, renting and moving five times to feel out different areas before we found the perfect location in 2007. We have had hundreds of thrilled visitors over these years, and hope to add you as one too!

              Why the Owner Chose Huelo:
              The location is perfect for our active family of six. We can walk out our door and be swimming in waterfall pools or hiking jungle in minutes. We can drive to a dozen beautiful uncrowded beaches in 15-20 minutes. All the rest of this spectacularly perfect island is an easy reach.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Being an author and with four active kids - we're all over Maui, all the time. Having this location as our home base has been perfect for our busy family because it allows us to experience living in the serenity of the true, natural Hawaii while still being within easy reach of everything the island has to offer.
