Maliko Jungle Cabin | Maui Guidebook

Summary

This large rustic and well appointed log cabin might be where Paul Bunyan would stay on his Maui vacation! The cabin sits among forest and a lush jungle valley alongside the Maliko Stream in Haiku. You can walk jungle trails, or stroll next door to the Sacred Garden (same owners.) Jimmie Hendrix fans will definitely be interested in taking a peek at the 1930’s era cottage on this property where Hendrix lodged for his 1970 Rainbow Bridge concert.

Clean, high quality bamboo and tropical furniture and a great private lanai and yard that you’ll certainly enjoy plenty of meals relaxing in.

While it feels like it’s miles away from anything, this location is actually quite centrally located. You can be at the beach, restaurants, shops, zip line, Makawao Town, Haiku Town or Paia Town in five to ten minutes.

There is a wild coffee plantation, tropical fruit (papaya, coconuts, avocado, tangerines, banana, oranges, limes, lemons, grapefruit, lychee, likikoi (passion fruit) and guava (help yourself!) Tropical flowers abound – including ginger, haleconia, angel’s trumpet, orchids, water lily, lotus, bird of paradise…the list goes on.

The most mellow-friendly gentle-giant of a dog named Bodhi lives on the property and loves to visit guests (He doesn’t bark and is totally loving – you’ll want to bring him home with you :)

Comfortable Retreat with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the jungle cabin with a family of 12. There was room for everyone! We had grandparents, parents, teenagers and young children. Everyone enjoyed the stay! The property was lush and beautiful and the serenity garden right next door was a very nice addition. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They made sure we had everything we needed without being invasive. They were easy to reach by text if we had any questions or requests. The bakery near by had wonderful doughnuts for breakfast and the farmer's market in near by Pukalani was huge with an excellent variety of fresh produce and delicious food!

A beautiful sanctuary, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Jungle Cabin - there were 10 of us, grandparents, plus two families (including 4 kids ranging in age from 8 to 13). There were plenty of room for all of us. The cabin is a hop away from the town of Makawao, which we enjoyed more than Paia. It's also convenient to drive up to the top of Haleakala (only about 45 minutes), and get on the Hana highway. The house is well equipped. Next door is the Sacred Garden, which has an outdoor labyrinth for meditation, and an indoor nursery with all kinds of plants. We'll definitely return to the Jungle Cabin when we visit Maui again!

Summary

Maui’s North Shore is less developed, less crowded, has cooler days, and is in a more natural state than the popular resort areas of South and West Maui.

With a rich agricultural history, the North Shore is now primarily residential with large multi-acre lots. Celebrities and the ultra wealthy live side-by-side with multi-generation Hawaiian families. Stunning views, uncrowded beaches and an eclectic collection of unique and interesting folks dot the landscape.

Much of the land and virtually all of the oceanfront property is protected from significant development, and there are strict zoning laws that prevent the sprawl and population density found in the more popular visitor destinations. Since development is restricted here, you won’t find any large hotels or resorts. Lodging options are much more down-to-earth: you can rent a house or vacation rental, or stay at one of only three small boutique hotels.

Location Advantages

The North Shore is strategically located for visitors to conveniently explore the natural sites and attractions on the Road to Hana and Upcountry Maui, while also being close to world-class beaches. Avid hikers, adventurers, beachcombers and surfers won’t run out of things to do no matter how long they stay on the North Shore.

The North Shore is also quite centrally located, and since the island is relatively small, it is also located within moderate drive times to the rest that Maui has to offer.

Drive Times

The first thing to know (and this applies to any location you choose to stay) is that those who love nature, hiking, sightseeing, exploring and adventure will find themselves all over our incredibly diverse island.

Second is that outside of the immediate resort-area congestion, drives on Maui are not boring commutes like they are back home – virtually every drive is incredibly scenic, and more often than not, drives to a specific destination serve up unexpected and enjoyable tours en route. This is especially true on the North Shore, and outside of the more developed ares, because open view planes show off Maui’s vast geographic diversity.

Drive Times

North Shore vs. Resort Areas

- Closer/avoid traffic bottlenecks to:

~ Haleakala National Park

~ Piiholo Ranch Ziplines

~ Lavender Farms

~ Winery

~ Kula

~ Ulapalakua

~ Upcountry

Piiholo Zipline

- Much closer:

~ Road to Hana

~ North Shore Beaches

~ Paia Town

~ Makawao Town

- About the same:

~ Airport

~ Iao Valley

~ Kahului

~ Hospital

~ Costco, Big Box Stores, Mall

~ Surf rental

The only places further are the resorts themselves:

- It takes around 10 minutes more to drive to either resort area from the North Shore than it would staying in one resort area and driving to explore the other (a must-do!) A straight drive, it takes about 30 minutes to reach Kihei from Paia, and about 50 minutes to reach Lahaina from Paia.

Beaches

The North Shore has many uncrowded, dramatic and beautiful beaches. Surfing, sunbathing, swimming and world-famous surf spots are plentiful. The biggest wave surfed in the world most years is at Jaws in Peahi. Hookipa is Mecca for windsurfers around the world. Kanaha is the most popular place to learn windsurfing, and Kite Beach is where the sport of kitesurfing was literally invented! All are found on Maui’s North Shore.

(There are photos and links to articles on all these locations)

Most tourists will drive right by these beaches – if you don’t decide to stay on the North Shore, you should still consider setting aside at least one day to explore a couple of these these great local beaches.

Some Favorite North Shore Beaches

Baby Beach -Great for kids, lap swimmers and beachcombers. Also very scenic.

Ho’okipa - You can watch some of the best windsurfers in the world here. Also has very regular surf breaks.

Baldwin Cove - Calm cove, great for escaping the wind when the sand is blowing!

Baldwin Beach Park - A long, sandy beach with plenty of parking, lifeguards and facilities.

Tavares Beach - Popular with locals. Good surf break, too.

Kuau Cove (Beach at Mama’s Fish House) - A small tidepool beach. Kids love exploring here.

Paia Bay - Great for advanced boogie boarders. Also has a good surf break.
