About the property

New Studio With 1 Queen Bed & 1 Futon, only 10 Mins To The Beach

** LEGAL **

Permit # BBPH 2016/0002

The HO’OKIPA Studio

The downstairs studio offers 500 sq. ft. interior with large living room/dining area; kitchenette with fridge and coffee maker, polished concrete floors which keep the space beautifully cool, shower / bathroom, ceiling fan. Queen size bed plus a futon sofa bed (sleeps 2 adults and 2 children), new internet TV and complimentary WIFI. Shared washer and dryer.

The adjoining studio (the Jaws studio) and house (Villa Maui) are rented separately, but either one or both can be rented together with the Ho'okipa studio to increase the capacity up to 8 adults and 8 children

The Ho'okipa studio is part of a family friendly home in a quiet neighborhood of Haiku - we look forward to helping you enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay here.

Centrally located in Haiku, it is a short 5 minute walk to the Pauwela Cannery, home to the delicious "Baked on Maui" cafe, many famous surfboard shapers and the headquarters of Goya windsurfing. A few minutes drive brings you to Haiku "town" center, with several great restaurants and food trucks, a post office and a well-appointed grocery store. Drive 10 minutes along the coast and you will arrive at Ho'okipa Beach park (where you can watch - or ride - some of the biggest waves on the island), and the the old plantation town of Paia. Or you can head upcountry to the more relaxed paniolo (cowboy) town of Makawao.

About Jamie & Olga Betham

We have lived on Maui for 15 years, having left our native UK and Spain in favor of the warm water and ideal climate that Maui has to offer. In 2003 we set up and opened Cafe Mambo in Paia which quickly became a favorite "go to" spot for locals and visitors alike, and we extend that same hospitality to you here at the Ho'okipa studio. Living right next door, we welcome you to our home and will be happy to offer any advice you might need during your stay here.

Jamie & Olga Betham purchased this studio in 2013

Why Jamie & Olga Betham chose Haiku-Pauwela

Situated on about 2 acres of open land in Haiku, buying this home allowed us to explore the idea of creating a self-sufficient style of living. The home runs on filtered catchment water and PV solar electricity, and has enough space for growing vegetables and raising chickens. Take a stroll down to the bluff and listen the East Kuiaha stream rushing through the gulch below, while enjoying the unobstructed view of the ocean and you will understand why we fell in love with this property.

Would not stay again.

  • 2 of 5

Looks like the pictures decoration wise. However it is a ground floor with no a/c on the wet side of the island. The windows open opposite the ocean breeze. Only one ceiling fan. So the sheets felt damp and our towels never dried. Also no wash cloths provided. Every morning at 5:30 we could hear the guests above moving about and talking. It could use a thorough cleaning-very moldy shower curtain and stained bed spreads. Maybe needs maintenance. We did not have hot water the first day tho they fixed it quick when we told them about it. The washer and dryer on switches were hard to get to work. Gave up after 15 minutes of trying to get it to work.

Clean, comfortable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. Clean and comfortable. Could hear the noise from upstairs, but I had read that in an earlier review and brought earplugs and slept easily. Would definitely stay here again!

Great place to stay!!! Absolutely stunning ocean views!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here, and both experiences were great. It is simple but has enough to make it a comfortable and accommodating stay, and you can't beat the location. Beautiful view, and they even added some outdoor chairs since the last time we visited which make the outdoor experience far more relaxing. Minimal bugs and mosquitos compared to the other places we have stayed in Hawaii. Best thing about the house is Abby the dog and the cats, so sweet. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Everything that was promised

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful and clean. The only downfall was that the floors were pretty thin and it was super easy to hear what was happening upstairs.
