THE NEW GINGER FALLS VACATION RENTAL. Our NEW (2017), BEAUTIFUL rental is located in Iao Valley, adjacent to Wailuku Town. Nestled in the midst of towering trees, fruit trees and wild coffee. This private, unique and amazing cottage is beautifully decorated in a contemporary Island theme.
Ginger Falls Vacation Rental is a very private, quiet, secluded and romantic rental situated in a gated, forested area. It sits on 2.6 acres of lush tropical landscaping with an endless supply of common and rare birds and is located on the edge of the Wailuku River, also known as the Iao Stream. The river runs all year round with a 15' waterfall adjacent to our property. The "white noise" generated by the falls will lull you to sleep.
The rental is conveniently located about 3 minutes from the historic and charming town of Wailuku - where restaurants, coffee shops and boutique shopping abound. There is also a theatre where live performances are often scheduled. Ginger Falls is centrally located and is a short drive to natural attractions, beaches and the airport.
Your drive to Ginger Falls from Wailuku Town will include a 3 minute drive through a local, low income neighborhood, which has some yards filled with cars being worked on while others are beautifully cared for. The neighborhood is safe and truly represents how local families on Maui live. Our private gate is about ¼ mile from the end of that neighborhood. One of our recent guest said this about the drive: "The only issue with their place is the colorful local neighborhood you drive through as you are nearing the property- but do not let that deter you as paradise awaits".
Ginger Falls Vacation Rental offers visitors a unique and personal experience of Maui that isn't available in most resorts. You will sleep in luxury with high count sheets, down comforter, down pillows and foam pillows. Check out the many amenities provided for your comfort - at no additional costs.

Sunny Jordan and her husband Bob Flint created Ginger Falls Vacation Rental to give their guests a memorable experience of Maui. Each item in the cottage was hand picked and reflects their good taste and sense of style. Before retiring in 2008 Sunny was in upper management of Art Galleries and now spends her free time creating something artistic. Bob has been involved in ceramics for the last 50 years and in addition to his major State commissions he teaches ceramics at the Hui Noeau Visual Arts Center. He also maintains a large studio on the property where he is always making something exciting in clay. Bob and Sunny work hand and hand on the property; Sunny designs - and Bob brings her designs to life in the form of moving boulders and planting trees/plants. Their rental and property is a tribute to their vision, dedication and love of the aina (land).
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Owner chose Wailuku Heights
We had both loved the area of Iao Valley, but never found any land that gave us the space and privacy that we like. One day Bob was talking with a friend at an art opening and asked him where he was living. He told Bob about this great property his father was selling in Iao Valley; five 2.6 acre lots right on the stream. We went to see it and immediately fell in love with the property. The woodsy feeling, the sounds of the waterfall and the closeness to town - we were sold! is very romantic!
What makes this Cottage unique
The rental has a wonderful screened porch surrounded by exotic tropical landscaping, fruit trees and coffee trees. It is a great place to curl up with a book or just sit and observe nature. Another nice feature is your own private Jacuzzi tub on the screened porch; a relaxing way to end the day. We are not a B&B, but we do provide breakfast items for your first morning and coffee/tea for your stay.

Most incredible cottage! Everything and more! True seclusion with perfect location for whole island!
A perfect spot to visit Maui. Not meant to be a tourist location - but if your looking for peace and relaxation Ginger Falls is it. Bob and Sunny are amazing accommodating hosts- know all the info you ever need. The waterfall is amazing to have when you wake and fall asleep. The cottage is so comfortable and has everything you need. We traveled all over the island and GF is in the perfect spot for launching any thing you would want to do.We will be coming back - it has met all of our expectations and more ! Mahalo Bob & Sunny
Exactly what you need for a stay on Maui
Bob & Sunny are wonderful hosts. The property is brand new, clean and very functional. We loved spending the day at the beach and coming home to relax on the enclosed porch in the evenings. We will certainly be returning to Ginger Falls soon.
We loved that your sought us out and found us at our new property. It was great seeing you again and meeting Ryan.....what a great baby. So happy - we never heard one peep (or cry) from him. He is welcome back (as you are) any time! And yes, next time let's have that wine by the waterfall!
Beautiful, peaceful, comfortable cottage
My husband and I stayed at Sunny and Bob's Ginger Falls cottage during our 1 week trip to Maui. If we are able to go back to Maui, we would most definitely stay here again! The cottage is on a beautiful piece of land, with wild birds chirping, and the sounds of a waterfall to soothe you to sleep. There is a beautiful lanai with a comfy day bed, where we spent most mornings drinking coffee, relaxing....and just slowly waking up to the day. I can't even say how deeply relaxed we felt, being able to get away from the big city (we are from San Francisco) and waking up without the sounds of cars and horns and the buzzing sounds of city living. The cottage has a little kitchen, with a stove/oven/microwave/toaster/keurig for coffee, fridge with some fruit and snacks. The bedroom is perfect for 2, comfortable bed, and plenty of closet space. Overall, the cottage is super clean, tidy, and organized. We loved it!
The cottage is located in Wailuku, which is approx. a 30 minute drive from Kihei/Wailea, 30 minutes from Paia, and about 2.5 hours to the top of the Haleakala crater. The little main street in Wailuku has a yummy coffee shop and a few eating options. There is an absolutely amazing restaurant on the Maui Plantation, which is only a 10 minute drive from the cottage too. You have lots of options for eating and hikes and beaches within easy driving distance.
Just ask Sunny and Bob for their recommendations! Everything they recommended was perfect! They have excellent taste :) And they are just the sweetest and easiest and responsive hosts!
We would recommend this place wholeheartedly and hope that it will be open for staying in next time we visit!
Rachel and Ryan, you were perfect guests! We love reading your review (made us blush!) because we are never sure how much is too much. We want our guests to feel free to come and go knowing that we are there for them if they need us.....and we want to suggest things to make their stay as good as possible. So, it's reassuring to know we achieve a good balance :-) YES, any time you need a break from the hustle/bustle, do come to see us!
Beautiful property, great hosts, perfect Maui retreat!
My husband and I stayed at Ginger Falls in Feb 2018 and absolutely loved it! The cottage is conveniently located for day trips around Maui, easily accessible to beaches, hikes, towns, etc. The property is gorgeous and tranquil - away from all the huge mega-resorts full of tourists - and had an authentic local vibe. Best of all, the cottage is just as luxurious as any high-end resort with nice finishes, a well appointed kitchen, and super comfortable bedding. Sunny and Bob were very welcoming and responsive to all our questions, and provided great recommendations for local restaurants and activities. We had an awesome time and will definitely be back!
Cheyenne and Dave - you were 5 star guests! When we went in to clean it was like you had never been there :-) Your review is awesome!!! Thank You! It is always great to see what matters to guests and we are so happy that what we provided enhanced your time on Maui. Yes, do come and see us again!
A hidden treasure!!!
If you are looking for somewhere away from the touristy hype then this is the secluded piece of Maui you are looking for. Everything has been carefully planned so you really can just relax and enjoy yourself. A wonderful slice of Maui heaven!!
Thank you Donna and Troy! You were great guests; hardly knew you were there. Good tip on creating a recycle bin - Bob is one it! We know it is a long way from Australia, but it would be fun to have you again. Not sure you left anything to see on a second trip (LOL) but maybe we could spend more time visiting. Would enjoy that. Aloha,
Sunny & Bob
Delightful hidden oasis
Great place for a getaway. Property is tucked back in a quiet area; bungalow is well designed and decorated; has beautiful views; and owners are friendly and helpful. It had everything we needed to cook, grill, relax, bird watch, and enjoy ourselves.
It’s convenient to anything you might need; and owners provided us with a helpful list of where to shop and points of interest. My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. We loved having the two of you and hope you come this way again. Aloha,
Sunny & Bob
