Property description

STMP 2015/0001 SUP2 2013/0015

Summary
This new Hawaiian studio cottage is perched atop a scenic jungle gorge with breathtaking views in every direction. Open and breezy; attention to detail shines from every facet. If you’re looking for a unique and authentic Maui vacation, Maliko Coffee Cottage or Maliko Retreat should be among your top contenders.

The Coffee Cottage is a new, Asian style studio cottage with modern tiled shower, king bed, sectional couch with chaise, three bar stools with custom Koa Counter and Koi pond and fountain. (Other amenities can be found above.)

Details
Attention to detail permeates every aspect of these homes. From the remarkable personal attention the owners give each and every guest, to the structural craftsmanship, furnishings and guest amenities, Maliko Coffee Cottage and Maliko Retreat are clearly a labor of love for owners Sydney and Maurice Smith.

Being located on acres of undeveloped land, and adjacent to an even larger parcel of undeveloped forest, the home and property are incredibly peaceful and quiet. Unlike Maliko Retreat, the Coffee Cottage is close to the winding country road, so you can hear cars (this is not a highway!) You’re certainly going to hear plenty of songbirds, wind, and passing showers as they patter on the rainforest canopy below.
Birders will especially appreciate the perspective, and the variety and quantity of birds that can be seen from the canopy vantage point. Pueo (native owls), nene (Hawaiian geese), plovers, stilts, majiros, hwamei, egrets, Java sparrow, Japanese white eye, doves and mynah are just a few of the many species of birds that call this area home. A large flock of egrets migrates twice daily past the cottage.

The Owners
Sydney and Maurice are exceptional hosts. They treat every guest as if they were family, welcoming all personally and freely offering unbridled hospitality and Aloha alongside their extensive knowledge of the area. Most requests that you might have they will graciously accommodate – they even offer to stock the kitchen before your arrival with your list of groceries for just the cost of the grocery store receipt! (I suggest letting them pick some unique local fruits, veggies and fish that you might not otherwise encounter.)

The significant value added from owners this passionate about the paradise they lovingly steward can’t be overstated. Sydney and Maurice deliver a depth of genuine Maui experience that you’re guaranteed to count high among your cherished Maui vacation memories.

The Grounds
Being in a steep river-cut valley has protected the land immediately boarding Maliko stream from becoming plantation monoculture for pineapple, sugar cane or grazing cattle. Instead you will be treated to an enchantingly diverse jungle forest. Wild blooming tropical flowers, vines, palms, gingers, jungle plants and fruits. Guests are encouraged to pick fruit and flowers (and you will be welcomed with a basket of freshly picked fruit at checkin as well!)
There are also small picnic areas, a stream with waterfalls and private natural pools so enticing, that even the most bashful will comfortably let go of their worldly cares to indulge in a skinny dip. Ancient Hawaiians used this valley, too – and there are even ancient Lo'i and pictographs that the owners can bring you to view. The grounds are truly an untouched slice of natural Maui rainforest.

The property is also home to the Maliko Estate Coffee farm – but you won’t find any clear-cut fields or mechanized rows of coffee farming – the hand-picked coffee grows in harmony with the jungle surroundings. Maliko Estate Coffee is shade-grown below the undisturbed lush jungle canopy. You can take a tour of the farm – or simply enjoy the half pound of natural farm-fresh coffee included with your stay!
