About the property

Two Bedroom Two Full Bath Permitted Cottage With Panoramic Ocean Views, Privacy

The cottage is on two and a half acres in Haiku. The property is in an agricultural zone and we grow bananas, citrus, coconuts and free ranging chicken hens. There is also a main house on the other side of the land that is not visible from the cottage.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and an attached full bath with a marble built in shower. The second bedroom has two twin beds with a full bath next to it with a large tub and shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, gas stove, coffee maker etc.. It also looks out at the ocean.

The cottage has two decks, outdoor furniture, gas bbq grill, wifi, satellite tv, washer and dryer. We have an outdoor shower that’s great for after a day at the beach.

Expansive ocean views, trade winds and privacy make this cottage a unique spot.

We do take one night minimum stays regardless of what it says on vrbo. They are having a problem with their software and it may say 2 night minimum.

The cottage is a permitted rental. SUP 2 2015/0002

Wonderful Haiku jungle cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful 3 nights stay in Haiku at this cottage in cute residential yet semi-secluded area. It is on a large lot shared with the owners house across the other side of the driveway. Very lush tropical area of Maui off the beaten path yet at the same time very close to the highway (0.5 mi). Views of the ocean and sounds of rain, birds and ocean at night were so calming. The ocean is not accessible nor walkable from here though. It is necessary to drive to Hookipa, the nearest beach, if desired. Paia town is 15 minutes drive away and there is a great little country store called Jaws with small restaurant /carryout 1 mile away on the main road/highway with excellent food and snacks. The house feels much bigger than it actually is due to the vaulted ceilings. It seems like they have thought of almost everything you could need. The kitchen has a nice updated stainless steel fridge, sink and stove which was great. Tea kettle, coffee maker and everything you could need for cooking were supplied, along with a special treat of Macadamia nuts, local banana bread, pineapple, and bottled water, which was such a sweet surprise on our arrival! There are flat screen TVs in the Master bedroom and living room (which we didn't use - who has time for TV in Maui?!), sitting area in living room with open kitchen plan, dining room area adjacent, large patio outside with chairs, table and candles; large Master with plenty of closet space, fans, towels, soap, etc. Only thing I could not find is a hairdryer in the Master and beach towels. Fairly tasteful decor (I think it is impossible in Hawaii to find a home without the loud Hawaiian style flowers/leaves pattern on something lol) with some cool Asian pieces of art and furniture and they have updated the comforters luckily from these original photos so they are more calm and subtle now. Did not use the 2nd bedroom as we were just a couple. Only other thing I will note is that the main house of the owner is just a little closer than I imagined. They were doing some work this week and I was outside sitting on porch in my PJs when workers drove in in the morning (kinda embarrassing and not quite as private as I had hoped). Other than that, it still felt fairly spacious between the houses. The owner Howard responds very quickly to messages on HomeAway and the Wi-Fi in the cottage worked well for emails and such. Would definitely return again to this lovely cottage and town. Overall a wonderful stay!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay. The bedrooms are very spacious and the bathrooms are nice. We really enjoyed sitting out on the patio and taking in the ocean views. The location is super convenient if you are planning to do the road to Hana or Haleakala. Also very close to mama's fish house, the town of Paia and a couple of very nice beaches. Howard was very nice and accommodating and was available/nearby in the event of any issues. I would highly recommend staying here

Loved the house and location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our one day at this house. Howard was great all the way through the process and the house was a perfect fit for our family of four. I wish we would have booked more days at the end of our trip to Maui. We will definitely return! Oh, and go to Flatbread pizza in Paia. And thanks for the pineapple, banana bread, water and coffee.

Hookipa beach park
Car: necessary

The location is on the north shore just off the road to Hana which is about 35 miles away. There are easy hiking trails to beautiful waterfalls just 2 miles east. Two beaches are close by, Hookipa beach park which has great surfing and windsurfing and Baldwin beach park which is a mile long beach nice for walking and swimming.

We are in a rural area but there are some small grocery stores and a few restaurants only 10 minutes away.
