About the property

Haiku Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) 2.5 acres of lush Island Living.

Pineapple Cottage has just been completely remodeled, and will provide a dream home in paradise. Our cottage offers new hardwood floors, shaker cabinets, granite counter tops, new leather furniture, a covered lanai with BBQ and lanai furniture over looking the gulch. There are two bedrooms with new king bed in the master and queen in bed 2, and just remodeled bath room with walk in shower and granite counter tops. My wife Ivy is an artist, her original art work and island decor sets the tone for a fun lifestyle, defining the Aloha Spirit. We are located on 2.5 acres, the cottage is set next to a gulch that has a stream that runs through out the year. The property is filled with tropical flowers, palms and fruit trees. (If you are looking for a party rental, this is not it, as it is nestled in a 2 acre subdivision.) This is also a non-smoking unit, but you can smoke on the deck. We do have washer and dryer, internet/ wifi with cable T.V.

We are located 10 minutes to world famous Hookipa Beach, known for it's surfing, windsurfing and kiteboarding. Visit Paia town only 15 minutes away, a fun old plantation town that has unique shops and restaurants (some of our favorites are Café des Amis for crepes, Paia Fish Market for fish burgers & tacos, Flatbread for pizza, Milagros for a good margarita! Paia has a wonderful health food store, Mana Foods. Baldwin beach is one of my favorite places for a morning walk on the beach. We are 20 minutes from the airport. Makawao Town is 10 minutes away, another fun town that has unique shops and galleries. Our own Haiku Town has a several restuarants, Colleen's offers pizza and great pasta & burgers, Veg Out is great for vegan & vegetarian "to go" grinds, and Nuka's for a delightful Sushi experience, an island favorite. There is also a sweet local Thai restaurant "Sala Dang's" where you can "BYOB" to enjoy your meals with. Haiku also has food trucks that are popular for lunch or take out, from Greek food to tacos...also two local grocery stores and even a hardware store! We are just finishing up, plumbing fixtures are going in this week, furniture is being brought in so pictures are not complete yet.

About Steven & Ivy Nickens

My Name is Steven Nickens and Maui has been my home for over 43 years, my real job is selling real estate, surfing and windsurfing in my spare time . Ivy my lovely wife is an artist, born and raised on Maui. Together we raised four kids, and have three granddaughters with another on the way. 1990 we bought and developed this property with the help of our kids. We love working in the yard, so we planted all our favorite fruit, and ornamental trees. I love that I can jump in the surf at Hookipa for a morning surf session before my day begins. Twelve years ago we built the cottage, we are just now putting the finishing touches on Pineapple Cottage remodel job. On this 2.5 acre parcel, we planted citrus, avocado's, papaya's, bananas, mango's and all kinds of tropical plants. If you're lucky and my garden is not full of weeds, you might enjoy some organic veggies from the garden. We love living here, it's so peaceful and private. In the morning you hear the birds singing. Anyway this is our home and we love living here, and hope you will to. Duke, our dog patrols our yard, looking mainly for someone to play ball with.

Why Steven & Ivy Nickens chose East Maui

Having lived in Haiku for years, we had an opportunity to purchase this property in 1990. We loved the location for perfect weather in Haiku, close to Haiku town, and easy access to restaurants, shopping and close to Hookipa Beach Park. Pineapple Cottage is the perfect location for a Hawaiian getaway. What I really like is driving pass the hustle and bustle in Paia, driving pass Mana's Fishouse, and I love the drive pass Hookipa Beach Park. Driving up Haiku road, is a beautiful drive heading up to our property. When you arrive at the Pineapple Cottage you drive into a private flag lot road, unto our exquisite estate. It really has the feel of old Hawaii, kick back and enjoin your visit.

What makes this cottage unique

What people say about our home, is that it feels like an tropical estate, with so many beautiful trees, and that you can walk on the property and pick fresh fruit. I also like listening to the stream when it's raining. Haiku is very tropical, we do get rain, but the temperature is not to hot, not to cold. You also are surrounded by vegetation creating beauty and privacy.

House Rules- Quiet after 9 pm, No smoking but on the deck it is allowed, No pets, Please remove slippers, not a party house very quiet neighborhood.

Check in time 2pm, Check out 10 am.

a slice of home (deliciously far) away from home

  • 5 of 5

my husband (a wildlife biologist and surfer), son (16-months, walking/running everywhere, getting into everything), and i spent a delicious week at pineapple cottage. we used it as home base to explore the north side of maui. as soon as we walked in to the cottage, we felt a deep sigh of relief, and as we looked around, we agreed: WE SCORED! pineapple cottage was spotlessly clean, effortless, comfortable, and had all the home-like things you want while traveling (if you're that type of traveler). a large supply of towels, a fantastic shower, a beautiful and very cookable kitchen, a handful of staples (olive oil, salt & pepper), great fiestaware dishes, etc.

steve and ivy set us up with their much-talked about banana bread (oh my god), a bag of maui coffee (woot!) and a box of local chocolates, plus a priceless list of their favorite spots. they always replied promptly to any questions we had, and when we finally met them, we thought: oh right, this is why this place feels like home.

not to mention, the house was great for our 16-month-old son, especially the back deck which was fenced in with a railing with rails close enough together, and no splinters in the deck, so that it became a giant play room for him. and then became the perfect spot for our happy hours.

finally, sleeping was such a treat (despite 16-month old): we left the windows open and loved the sound of banana leaves and the river down below. we miss it, but will be back.

(ps - i hate to write such a good review for fear we'll never again be able to stay at this sweet little spot! of course, it might be our friends filling it up as we've already passed along the info to so many.)

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The four of us agree - this is including two young teens: the cottage was wonderful, the local atmosphere was heaven, and Maui's highlights were impressive incl. views, beaches, rainforest, volcano, and meals.

Our stay in Pineapple Cottage was perfect for the four of us, nature lovers and keen explorers of places. This is a wonderful house with very inviting interior, nice bathroom, complete kitchen (we liked to cook/bbq every second night), and a gorgeous veranda - easy to feel comfy, a home away from home. From here we visited the whole island and were more than happy to come to Pineapple Cottage afterwards.

Ivy and Steve are incredibly welcoming hosts - not only because of their delicious banana bread but also for their best tipps and for being available and supportive if needed. We loved to have their dogs in reach for our son while nicely kept in their areas; they do not bother at all.

A tranquil spot with lush landscaping hidden away...

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely and the location worked well for our stay on Maui...close to family who live just up the road. A tranquil spot with lush landscaping hidden away from surrounding residences, yet just a few miles from the town of Haiku and the beaches. Beautiful finishes on the interior with everything we needed for a two week getaway.

Absolutely perfect, clean and refurbished!

  • 5 of 5

A long overdue review that only gets our best recommendations! The cottage is superb for a family of four.

We arrived to a very well equipped, super clean and nice cottage in the middle of the night. We were welcomed by the best banana bread in all of Maui, and some nice coffee and chocolates.

The cottage delivers everything it promises. Inside and out. From cleanliness to lovely surrounding. We didn't miss a thing that we where expecting. (Washing Machine and tumbler, Wifi, TV, Dish washer, perfectly equipped kitchen, lots of towels and linen)

It's a perfect place to stay, if you want to explore the entire island of Maui. From the road to Hana, The North Shore, The top of Haleakala, the fanastic town of Paia. to the more resortlike western shores. All within a 40 min drive.

We've been travelling with kids all over the world but concluded that despite being a 24hour flight away, it was so worth it and we love to do it again. We stayed for 2 weeks and absolutely loved every minute of it. Can really recommend staying at Steve and Ivy's lovely place. Thank you for everything!

My highest recommendations!

The perfect getaway basecamp

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to go if you want to really have some solitude with all the amenities of home. Ivy and Steve were fantastic at giving a great idea of local areas to visit and things to see. We arrived to very nice care package of local coffee, chocolates and and a homemade banana bread to die for!

The beautiful grounds are lush and filled with seasonal fruit and nothing is nicer than waking up to the sound of a running stream in your back yard.

If we return to Maui anytime soon we will definitely be looking to stay here again.

We had a great experience overall! Thank you Steve and Ivy!

Comfortable getaway with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this place! From the beautiful view from the lanai, comfortable rooms, well equipped kitchen and immaculate bathroom, to the gracious and accommodating hosts. My three year old daughter loved playing in the garden; the banana trees were a big hit (we also loved being greeted by fresh baked banana bread!).

The immediate area was fun to explore, we often drove to Paia for the beach and lunch, and Makawao for a little hike and a coffee. The Waihou spring trail is a fun outing for little ones.

Hope to be back!
