About the property

Two Bedroom One Bathroom Oceanview Cottage

Maui County Rental permit - STPH 2013/0024


Fabulous views, privacy and quiet were foremost for us in choosing where to build our dream home in Hawaii. We looked for several years before finding this special Maui hilltop location on the side of the volcano. The guest cottage is nestled into a private setting, with no close neighbors, plenty of privacy and an ocean view to the east, and Healeakala view to the side. The main house sits at the top of the hill, but does not interfere with the privacy of the cottage.

We aspired not to a tailored gated community but rather to a feeling of informality in a serene, natural more rural setting. It was also important to us to be free as possible from the noise arising from airports, close neighbors and road traffic. Our 2 ½ acres feels secluded, and we hear the birds and the breeze rather than road noise.

We chose Maui's north shore because our family is very active in sporting activities, and we manage to surf, windsurf, kite board, boogie board, snorkel, stand-up paddle, fish, and run (in the pineapple fields). Our location is reasonably central so that trips to Makawao and to the top of Haleakala volcano, to Hana, to Makena or to Lahaina are all easy.

The guest cottage is set part of the way up the long driveway, in its own private area, and faces to the east, with an ocean view and full Haleakala view in the distance. The cottage has two bedrooms (queen, 2 twins which can be made up as king), one bathroom, spacious living room, full kitchen, TV/DVD/Stereo, high speed wireless internet, covered deck, outdoor furniture and gas BBQ. AND…. A large private hot-tub.

Very neat, clean and cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just loved it - though it is a bit on the small side, it had everything we wanted - location, views, wind, cleanliness, separate beds for kids, etc.

Only two comments - it has a single bathroom, so our family of four had to negotiate/coordinate its usage. And the main bed is queen, not king.

Otherwise, perfect cottage for North shore lovers.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the property was as described and more. We felt it was worth every penny. Clean, new, everything top quality. Views galore! Surfing beach and several cute beaches nearby. We had rain 5 out of 7 days, but the sun was out on the other parts of the Island. If you are planning to spend a lot of time on the western side of the island ( more sun, better for snorkeling, more people) - maybe this house is not the best choice, takes about 1 hr from Makena Beach. Also, this part of the island seem to have more clouds this time of year. Haiku is a tiny town, a bit grungy, but in California kind of way. I'd stay there again, just to gaze at the view.

Owner's Response: Aloha Bella. I'm so happy that you enjoyed the cottage. It's a special little place. And you're so right, I have no idea what was happening to our weather. While May is usually dry, that certainly wasn't the case this year. We'd love to have you return when you have plans for another trip to Maui.

Really Enjoyed our Stay

  • 5 of 5

Here is a short feedback after our departure from the property in Haiku.

We want to say that we really enjoyed our stay at the Pinnacle Cottage at Haiku Hill!

It`s a very nice Cottage and we can recommend to friends who want to go in this area in the future. We love this area and it's a dream to be there!

Say many thanks to the owners of the Cottage and that we felt us like home during our stay there. :-)
