Owner purchased this Cottage in 1988
Why Owner chose Haiku-Pauwela
Haiku is all about open space and cool ocean breezes. We are both water people and need to be close to the beach. Maui's historical past is still alive in Haiku, a great alternative to the resort area on the other side of the island.
What makes this Cottage unique
We enjoy avocados, coconuts, lemons, limes, oranges, papayas, jackfruit, coffee beans, and more. We also grow many tropical flowers and orchids. You will feel like it's your own home every time you come up the palm lined driveway.

Beautiful property, comfortable stay, great hosts, CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS ONE! :)
My family and I stayed for about 8 days and have nothing but good things to say about both the hosts as well as the property.
**Tucked away and private
**Gorgeous setting and picturesque views
Wow! Would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone.
Loved it! The real Maui
Nice quaint cottage away from the most touristy areas of Maui. Felt like a home away from home. Beautiful gardens, very quiet, prefered it to the Hyatt Regency in Kaanapali. Gregg and Danielle were wonderful, gave us our privacy, and gifted us with a nice card and bottle of Champagne to celebrate our wedding day. Loved our stay here.
So happy you enjoyed your stay here more than the luxury hotel.
We'll never forget the stretch limo coming up our drive way.......glad you liked the Champagne .....
Hope to see you again on Maui......
Peaceful, Breathtaking, Comfortable , Local Maui Experience...
Our hosts were great at communicating before and throughout our stay. We were welcomed the night we arrived and happy to see the beauty and comfort that would be our home for our 8 day stay. Fresh avocados, bananas and lemons were left for us by Danielle, who gave us a quick lay of the land and then quickly let us get settled in. We enjoyed several activities all over the island and never felt too far away from our adventures...zip lining, snorkeling, Hana trail, a local concert with Willie K, whale watching and swimming with sea turtles. It was amazing to learn about the island. We had fabulous fresh food and visited local FARMS !!! We rested too, listening to the morning birds and the evening winds were heavenly. Cooking meals and preparing picnics in the cottage was easy. They had everything we needed. Danielle took me on a tour of her gardens and I brought home many inspiring photos to help me with my gardening. She is a artist with lots of knowledge about tropicals and orchids.The grounds are a delight at any turn. Blooms galore and local food too ! The local restaurants are excellent. We are thankful for Danielle and Gregg's recommendations. We were not disappointed. If you get a chance to go to NUKA, don't hesitate. It "Broke the Mouth", it was fresh and a gastronomic pleasure. Having access to WiFi was important for our work and to keep in touch family left at home. Our adult son was on leave and was able to join us for a time. Having the separate apartment was perfect for him. Maui Dream Cottage is a wonderful location for a private, peaceful stay while visiting Hawaii ,. It has unique local flavor and all the amenities we needed and more. Mahalo, Danielle and Gregg
Aloha and thanks for your very long review.....Danielle is the one that makes our property so beautiful. It's her passion and the gardens always show how much she cares.
Haiku is the place to stay and enjoy the best of Maui.

Beautiful property in great location
MDC was the perfect size for my family (2 adults + 2 kids). The owners take great care of the cottage and grounds. We enjoyed seeing all the beautiful orchids and having fresh avocado from the tree! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals and the view from the table was great. The linens throughout were clean and soft. We enjoyed our stay very much!
Aloha and thanks for your great review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. You have Danielle to thank for the beautiful orchids and grounds...it's her passion.
Hope to see you back again soon.......
Gregg and Danielle
This was a great place to stay! The owners are super nice people and the property is absolutely beautiful. It is located just close enough to main population areas to have everything you'd need or want, and just far enough away to feel worlds away from urban life. It has all you'd need to cook food in, so go grocery shopping and save some money. There is a washer and dryer as well!
The one thing that I will warn about is, if you are tethered to your phone or absolutely must have internet all the time, know in advance that your cell phone won't work here (maybe one bar on Verizon) and while there is wifi, it is not super dependable. This is not necessarily bad thing. You are in Maui after all and the life you are on vacation from can wait till you get home, but just in case you have been warned.
Overall I recommend the stay here. Particularly if you have been to the island before and stayed at a resort. You will see a different Maui here.
Aloha and thanks for your review. Our wi-fi for web surfing and emails is fine for our guests and is always available, but downloading mega files for your business is slow. The cell phone service is 1-3 bars depending on if you're inside or outside the cottage. We are so happy you enjoyed our property and hope to see you again soon on Maui.
Awesome secluded cottage.
