Gorgeous Cottage & Gardens in the best part of Maui!
"We were so fortunate to spend a week at Gary and Marianne's garden cottage. We love to stay in Haiku when visiting Maui--we love its green forests, country quiet, and its close proximity to the North Shore beaches, Crater, an assortment of yoga, and the best farmer's market on the island (Wed. and Sat.). The king size bed and bedding are extremely lush, and we enjoyed restful sleep each night with the windows open to let in the trade winds, and loved waking up to the walls of green gardens on several sides of the cottage. It was so pleasant to have a relaxing place to enjoy meals and down time, great internet connection-- and all very private. The weather was amazing in Haiku (not too hot, not too cold) even in the middle of summer, and we never felt like we needed air conditioning! Gary and Marianne are accommodating, helpful, and respectful of their guests and their home. We loved the sweet touches like fresh tropical flowers and ferns fresh from their gardens, and really appreciated that they choose to use only all natural cleaners and detergents. We are very familiar with Maui (former resident), and feel that rentals such as these, which are loved and well cared for, are a true jewel not to be missed!"

"If your reading this, it's because you love the pics and what you have read, but you want to make sure it's real... Well, it's real!!!! The most amazing views both day and night!! Relaxing and incredible stay. The hosts have everything planned for a perfect vacation. Food, music, hot tub, plus two master bed rooms split across the house. Close to beaches, Mama's Fish House, Twin Falls (awesome water fall and rock jumping), and The Road to Hana. Trust me when I say the pics don't do it justice!! We booked it for two couples and it was amazing! The outside shower was a very cool touch. The hosts are also tour guides with all their knowledge of the island. Can't wait to visit again. Best trip of my life! Thank you again guys for everything!!!"

"Recently I attended a medical conference in Ka’anapali on the west coast of Maui. My travel companion and I decided to diversify our experience of the island by staying the rest of our days on the north coast, which is less developed and less touristed. In looking for accommodations, it was with great fortune that I came across Maui Ocean Breezes, located just outside the town of Haiku where we spent six magnificent days.
Not only is there plenty to explore close by, Haiku is located centrally enough that anything you may wish to do on the island is well within reach. The amenities at Maui Ocean Breezes fit us to a tee; we watched the sun rise from our patio, I swam under the stars in the saltwater pool and indulged in the peace and calm of the quaint little yoga hut. Our accommodations were not only comfortable, they were spotless; with a fully functional kitchen for cooking at home.
Ken and Anjali DeSure have been very thoughtful in their creation of this retreat for people who want a taste of a deeper and more authentic Maui. Along with their son, Alex, they are gracious and generous hosts in sharing their little chunk of paradise with their guests."

"My wife and I spent two weeks in the Leeward Condo and enjoyed our stay. Our daughter lives nearby so location was our main reason for staying at Haiku Makai. Max and Tracey treat us more like friends than customers. Max brought by fresh bananas and citrus fruit almost daily. Buttercup is the official welcome "person" for the property. We are dog people so it was nice to have her greet us and be there occasionally at our door.
This was our second stay in the Leeward Condo. We found it to be comfortable. Other posters have talked about the geckos and you should be prepared to see the little guys once in a while. They are harmless but they can startle you so awareness is paramount. This condo is what you should expect for an upcountry rental. The facilities are dated but functional. The appliances work and the coffee is hot. Our only recommend would be to add an inexpensive dinner service for four and a few more cups and glasses. I did not mention this to Max or Tracey so it may well be .... all I had to do was ask. I give them the benefit of the doubt because I see them as trying hard to please their customers... trying hard to make new friends!
This is a quiet and peaceful place on a back road near Haiku. It is not in the hustle and bustle of touristy Maui. It is your get-away from that scene. It allows you to relax and enjoy the ocean view. Mahalo and Aloha!"
