It was our 2nd time at the North Shore and we love Haiku as a base to explore this beautiful island. This house was perfect for us and we enjoyed it so much. It felt like we were living on Maui. Holly’s cottage offers everything you need and a lot more. It was spacious, very clean and very well equipped with everything (linen, towels, cooler, kitchen utilities, washing machine, dryer). It has a cute hidden parking space, a nice garden with a lot of fruits. The huge lanai was great to rest, having a barbeque and enjoying this beautiful ocean view. We also loved those day beds, where we enjoyed resting after a long day at the beach. The bed was very comfortable, we had a deep sleep and the neighborhood was very quiet there at least during our stay in Haiku. The traffic at the main road did not bother us at all. Since we also came for some windsurfing fun on the island, we were thankful for the storage space under the house.
Holly did a great job decorating the house with all those little tasteful tropical details. It looks even better than on the picture. Holly was a great landlord, she even let us check in a day later since we had a cancelled flight at SFO and a layover there.
The house is close (5 min walk) to Haiku grocery store, some restaurants and post office. You have a very short drive to Ho’okipa and Paia. It’s so close to the Road of Hana where you start your exploring trips either way.
We loved it there and would love to come back as soon as possible. Maholo for everything to Holly.
