Great spot for our romantic adventure
It was a little challenging to find the home in the dark as it was hidden behind some other homes... but after we knew we were in the right location it was great.
The home was clean and the owner provided everything we needed for adventures.
Thank you for staying with us Stephanie!
Lovely Cottage in Haiku
This cottage was perfect my needs. It did rain unexpectedly in this area almost every day, often just for a short period of time, and in the evening, it was a bit closer to the other house on the property than I had perceived. However, the covered patio provided a private outdoor area and shelter. Also, there are ants, t, but they're small and predictable. Bedding was comfortable, closets and supplies excellent, kitchen adequate and living area comfortable. For outdoor recreation there were a few chairs, barbecue, many towels, insulated bags available, and an outdoor shower. It's not a long ride if you want a change of weather in Maui. Very quiet and peaceful at night. Great star gazing when there's a new moon.
Haiku is a very small town, but conveniently within walking distance of a couple of restaurants (had dinner at one) and a very nice country grocery store. I enjoyed the general quietude of the area. It's also a shorter ride to Haleakala than from other areas, and you are at the start of the Hana Highway. The Temple of Peace is nearby (walkable). They have a small health spa there. I wasn't there for their Sunday service, though I think I would have enjoyed it. The Temple also hosts a robust Kirtan on (most?) Tuesday evening if you have an interest. Paia is nearby and very lively ... allow extra time to get through the traffic light at the main intersection.
I had no need to contact the hostess, but had her contact information; she was available 24/7.
Mahalo for staying with us Richard!
Lovely little cottage!
We really enjoyed this space. Great location in a little hamlet that has everything that you need (grocery store, food trucks, restaurants) all within a 5 minute walk. The cottage itself was clean and well appointed with lots of thoughtful extras such as beach gear (chairs, coolers etc) and a BBQ (which we used frequently). The kitchen was a good space for cooking meals and the lanai and backyard were great for hanging out after a day of touring around Maui. The only downside to this place (and certainly not something that our lovely host can change) is that there was a neighbor's dog who barked consistently throughout the day. For us, it wasn't too much of a problem but if this is something that would bother you, then it may affect your enjoyment of the place. Would highly recommend this one and if we visit Maui again, would stay here once more for sure!
Relaxing place to stay
We had a great time here! The location is convenient for exploring upcountry and the road to Hana, and the coolers, beach chairs and snorkel mask made our day trips to the beach fun and relaxing. Some evenings we used the grill and ate at the outside picnic table, which was very nice. We really enjoyed the quiet and peaceful atmosphere here.
Mahalo Benjamin! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay!
Great cottage, fun location
The cottage had everything needed plus fun extras like an outdoor shower. It was quiet but a block from a grocery store, coffee shop, and restaurants. We hope to stay again.
Mahalo for staying with us! So glad you enjoyed your time on the north shore.
