About Mike Grier

hunterhales808@gmail.com

I have lived in Haiku for 15 Years and would never want to leave. I'm a carpenter by trade and have a wood shop here in Haiku. I surf, windsurf and stand up paddle, being in the ocean has been a priority for me since I moved here from Canada in 1997.

Mike Grier purchased this cottage in 2012

Guestbook comments from the manager

Perfect Maui Retreat!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This set of cottages was amazing! We travelled as a family of four, with two small children, (Under 2 and 3 years old), with their grandparents in the next cottage. The property is beautiful, the backyards adjoin with the perfect amount of privacy, and our children loved to play there during our down time! Everything you need is already at the cottages, it's like home away from home in beautiful Maui. You are centrally located so everything is a reasonable drive, and for convenience there is a grocery store that also sells liquor, (Bonus for us Canadians), and some restaurants as well! Mike the owner is wonderful and knows Maui very well so that is a bonus having the local connection! We will never stay anywhere else now that we have been here!

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

First I apologize to Mike for the (very) late review!

We choose to have this be the last week of our two week trip to Maui after the "tourist" week (which was also awesome) and are so very happy with that choice. We really wanted a taste of the "local" side of Maui and cannot imagine that anywhere could be better!

The Hunter Hales cottages are lovely traditional Hawaii construction with Mike's beautiful workmanship throughout the interior. The property itself is quite lovely and wonderful as well. Hard to choose, when we weren't out and about, between outside or indoors. We let the weather decide and it did! Beware the coconuts. Lol.

You are not going to be staying at a five star mega resort by any means, but ultimately this is one of the greatest features. We felt like we were "home". Doesn't get any better than that. Awesome vibe!

While thinking about writing this review, it became apparent that any "issues" were irrelevant and are simply not worth mentioning (first world "problems"). Nothing is perfect. We really didn't care because, well, Hawaii!

Haiku is definitely one of the coolest towns we have ever visited. We always felt extremely welcome everywhere we went. The people in Haiku truly do "live aloha". The location of the cottages makes you become part of the community. Mostly because you're right in the middle of it and eventually because you want to join it! You can walk to everything and Haiku has everything you need. Several outstanding restaurants that you must try and do not miss the food trucks either! Every meal was outstanding. However, you'll need to discover them yourselves because it's all part of the adventure.

Mike is gracious host although you may not necessarily "see" him. Things sometimes just magically appear. If you do need him for any reason he will be there.

We highly recommended a stay at Hunter Hales. Would return in a heartbeat!

Oh, and while you're there, please give the chickens and the cats a shout out. Remember to be kind to our/your Gecko housemates as well.

Live Aloha.

A great family stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Hunter Hales. We were a family of 5 and had plenty of room for everyone. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen is perfect !!! We could cook everything comfortably, just like at home. Grocery is nearby, so we had fresh ingredients all the time. Location is very convenient and the place gives you a true Hawaiian feeling with its large garden and coconut trees. We hope to come back again.

Wonderful Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Hunter Cottage. The home is beautiful, it's light, airy and has a very secluded feel. We were instantly at home here. We loved being able to come back from adventures to have a quiet glass of wine on the porch.

Centrally located on the North Shore, Hunter Cottage gives you easy access to the Hana Highway, Hookipa Beach Park and Mama's Fish House. The closest town center is lovely Paia, with nice shopping and restaurants. The cottage is also just a 2 minute walk from a full-service grocery store, a few nice restaurants and some really tasty food trucks.

Mike is a great host, the cottage is very clean and was stocked with everything we needed, plus a complimentary bottle of wine! We definitely recommend staying at Hunter Cottage, it was perfect for us!

Little piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've really enjoyed our time at this place. The house was perfect for our need and it is really a little piece of paradise. I have nothing wrong to say about it. We've specially appreciated little things like the bottle of wine and all the beach gear equipment that was there for us. The house is well equipped and very near of everything. Mike was really quick during our email communication. Thank for everything!

Excellent cottage and location!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation! This cottage was perfect for our stay had everything we needed.

The kitchen was well equipped and super market was close by but we also enjoyed eating out at the wonderful restaurant options in walking distance from the cottage. Very peaceful and quiet backyard.

We are already making plans to return next year.

The owner Mike was very friendly and knowledgeable about the island.
